I received a check and piece of paper to go and cash a check and purchase gift cards within two days and send them copies of the gift cards. I was skeptical and googled it before moving forward, and I see this is a scam .

Recieved priority mail envelope from Trekah Partners LLC, **** Pikes Peak Avenue, lafayette LA 70501-6700 of course inside envelope was paper with instructions from Global Link, evaluation survey. Check amount for 1845.45. I verified check address and it does come back to Delta Community Credit Union. Then looked up global link scams amd seen several others recieved similar items.
They were claiming if I gave info about the Covid vaccine which I just received on Saturday, I would be eligible for a prize. When I got to the end I would have to put in credit card info, which I recognized as a scam. I didn't do it. These people have been contacting in different scams periodically.
I received a text, kind of ominous with further instructions to follow. I just received a fed ex priority mail envelope that included a cashier's check for 2350 with instructing on conducting a survey. Then I was to purchase 3 gift cards at 400 each, send pics is said cards to a cell number, with the 16 digit card# and scratch the code on the back. Another sign was all the grammatical errors....
Ha! Sorry hunny, but I don't have those kinds of funds to replace so I will be burning this all. Nice try, slick.
STAY SAFE everyone AND BEWARE.....
