Type of a scam Employment
I applied to an online classified ad to a job being a secret shopper for Consumer Analysis Inc., going to various restaurants, banks, clothing stores, etc. to report my experience during my shopping at these various locations. I hadn’t heard anything for sometime, 2. 3 months and I received a priority mail envelope with a check for $2,050.00 to carry out my first duties as a secret shopper. They told me to deposit the check and that it should clear in 24-48 hours, which we all know doesn’t happen in less than 3-5 business days, normally 5-10 in my experience. So, I called the bank that the cashier’s check was sent from Stillman Banc Corp, N.A in Illinois. and asked if there were funds to cover the check. The woman who answered asked for the check number and in a few minutes informed me that there was no such cashier’s check issued with that number and that the check was indeed bogus. That is why I am here writing this complaint to the BBB.
