Victim Location 44095
Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
Report taken over phone by ScamPulse.com representative on 6/17/2020 (ba)
My son responded to a text from this company around 10 days ago to participate in a survey. We received a check for $3250 from the Naval Federal Credit Union with instructions to deposit the check in our bank account and purchase gift cards in various amounts from WalMart, plus buy merchandise to keep, and to send a $50 check to the American Cancer Society. The amounts all added up to more that the actual check. Once the assignment was completed, we were to notify the company and they would give us instructions as to where to send the gift cards. If we were to complete the assignment within 24 hours, we would receive a $100 bonus. We did nothing with the check and will not be participating in the survey and wanted to warn others. We will send a copy of the information to ScamPulse.com and inform our local police.
