Whole Foods Evaluation Scam

  • by: Cloud007
  • #65755
  • Dec 24, 2019
  • Monetary Loss: $0
My story sounds like everyone else's but I didn't do anything with the check. They had awkward sentences in the instructions and the check even felt fake. I texted them back I had received it but realized it was a scam so would be reporting them.

I received a check via an USPS Priority mail containing instructions how to deposit the check and perform "your first Secret Survey assignment". I did not deposit the check (and will not) but wanted to alert others of this scam!

Ebay gift card whole foods survey scam

  • by: dustin1223
  • #65959
  • Jan 4, 2020
  • Monetary Loss: $200
I had recently filled out an application/survey online to become a secret shopper. A few days I later on December 19th, I received a text from "Nico Ibanez, a representative of Whole Foods Market" and "regarding the evaluation project" I did on one of their "platforms in the past few days ago." He stated that I would receive my "first survey assignment parcel" in the mail and to confirm when I received it. Due to the holidays, I was extremely busy with work and family and did not confirm that I had received it until 12/28/19, of which I had received several texts from Nico asking to confirm receipt and that "the company isn't getting patient with your silence.." Which looking back at these messages, that normally would have been a Red Flag but I was extremely busy with other things. I hadn't opened it until that day, 12/28 and it was in a priority mail envelope with a cashier's check sent to me for $2450.52 from a Tamara Russo via Bank of America and a paper from Whole Foods labeled "Customer Service Evaluation Tool (CSET)" with instructions for me to purchase $2,000 in eBay gift cards at various stores, then send them a front and back picture of the cards scratched off along with a report on my experience purchasing them. It indicated that I should purchase eBay gifts cards with the money and keep $450 for myself. They also said if I did this within 24 hrs. I would receive a $150 bonus. I was suspicious that they were asking me to purchase gift cards and not go to Whole Foods but when the cashier's check eventually appeared to clear the bank, I thought it was legit. The 1st eBay gift card I purchased was for $200 at Game Stop and I immediately sent them the information, since I had delayed the process for so long already. Then I received a text from Mark Carter, that the card had not been activated and I needed to return to the store to get it activated, I was confused and immediately suspicious and told them I would not purchase any further cards until the check cleared. Once the check cleared, I returned to Game Stop to "activate" the card on 12/30/19. I realized afterwards, that somehow the scammers had deactivated the 1st card almost immediately and made it look like it didn't exist because they did the exact same thing with the 2nd card. The check was returned to my bank on 12/31/19 and I have lost $200 since the eBay card is no longer valid. I texted both Mark Carter and Nico that the check had been returned. Mark never responded but Nico insisted it wasn't fraud, couldn't believe it had been returned and he would "contact his superior and get back to me". I informed them that I would notify the FTC regarding this scam and I haven't heard from either of them since. I have filed a complaint on the Federal Trade Commission website and I suggest any other victims of this scam, whether money lost or not, file a complaint as well. Thank you.

Then scratch off the silver scratch off area on the cards, take photos (camera phone is okay) and send them the pictures, but keep the cards "for my next assignment".. also the $450.52 remaining from their check was to be my commission.

Whole Foods Customer Service "Evaluation"

  • by: KBibbs
  • #66600
  • Jan 21, 2020
  • Monetary Loss: $0
I received a text asking if I'd be interested in participating in a "paid evaluation / secret shopper program" for my local Whole Foods. I responded yes, and 3 days later received an email indicating I had been "selected". I was then told I'd be receiving funds for shopping and payment via a cashiers check. Approximately 1-2 weeks later it arrived... (A Cashiers Check from "Family Security Credit Union in the amount of $2,450.52) Sure... looks pretty darn legit and likely looks like CHRISTMAS for a person that doesn't take time to THINK about the IRRATIONAL logic... that a "WELL KNOWN REPUTABLE COMPANY" would send a cashiers check for over $2000... along with POOR QUALITY black and white printout with RIDICULOUS SCAM ALERT instructions (CLEARLY MASS printed on a $25 printer)... THEN send shoppers into THEIR stores to "EVALUATE" the stores "CUSTOMER SERVICE" when selling you "GIFT CARDS".... REALLY!!!!!!!??????

Whole Foods Customer Service Evaluation

  • by: noemails
  • #66787
  • Jan 24, 2020
  • Monetary Loss: $0
Like the others, I received a communication offering $450 for evaluating customer service at a Whole Foods Store. I was to receive instructions by USPS mail. I also got a SMS message (from 978-999-2150) from a Steve Carter asking if the instructions arrived. They came on 1/23/2020 by mail along with a check for $2950.52. Instructions said to confirm the arrival of the check by text at the 978 phone number above, stating the bank on the check, my full name and phone number and then to deposit the check in my bank. Then I was instructed to purchase $2500.00 in Nike gift cards from any one of a variety of stores, scratch off the back of the cards, photograph fronts and backs and then send an evaluation survey of the store's customer service along with photos of the front and back of the gift cards to: [email protected] Fortunately, I discovered this scam before depositing the check or purchasing any cards.
