I've been scammed by Smith Kelly

  • Mar 17, 2016
  • Monetary Loss: $10,892.50
Before I received the information about secret shopper scams I signed up to be a mystery shopper. I did not receive confirmation that I had been accepted, (which should have been my first clue), however I received my first assignment in the mail with a postal money order in the amount of 986.30 to be sent by moneygram to ANDREW DELROY RODNEY IN GLENN HEIGHTS TEXAS. My fee was 150.00. I was to go to Walmart buy something for under 20.00 and send the rest to Mr, Rodney, that was on March 7, 2016. Since that date I have done 3 other assignments. The last two were sent to the Philippians. I received the information about these scams yesterday afternoon after finishing the 4th assignment. I went to the bank where I had cashed the money orders and the teller checked to see if the postal money orders were valid. They do not appear to be valid even though they look like they are. I was not asked for any personal information nor did I pay anything. I've kept all the paper work from them.

I have been scammed by Aaron Foster

  • Mar 17, 2016
  • Monetary Loss: $1625
I was sent a email with a link that led to a Walmart secret shoppers website where I had to fill out my information. I received the information in the mail with a check in my name and instructions to evaluate Moneygram in the area. I deposited the check in my account one the check cleared I took out the instructed amount and sent the money. Then I was instructed to email my experience to the email listed above. The next day I received alert's from my bank saying that the check had been returned. I tried contacting Aaron there was no answer or response. My amount showed that I was -$1698 in the whole.... from that point I contacted my bank they stated that because I withdrew the funds I was held responsible to pay every penny back to the bank. So now I just don't know what to do.
