Type of a scam Employment

The man’s name was Kevin porter he said that he had an opening in my area and that he was going to send me the job along with the money through postal mail. So of course I believed it was real and I did the job. And he stopped payment on a cashier’s check on the 4th day after I did the job and everything. Now I’m overdrawn at my bank. Dont know what to do bc the assignment the next day was use the cards. So I cant get that money back. He sent the cashiers check through a credit union bank all the way across the country in California called Sierra and the emblem looked exactly like the places logo and my bank took it. But he stopped payment for no reason and never responded to me ever again. So I’m filing a complaint on this fake person.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I got a check for over $1900.00 I didn’t cash the check. Then last week I got a money order for $1000.00 I thought that it had to be legit because it looked real. I went to cash the check and I thought for sure when the bank cashed it I was ok. But when I went to Walmart to transfer the money I was told, it was a scam the lady asked me several questions, I was rude to her so I come home got on the computer and found out she was right. I have go back and apologize to her for saving me money. But now what do I do since I got it cashed. But when the lady told me about the scam I closed my bank account. Can you tell me what I need to do

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

The company, Mystery Shoppers, sent an email to my step mother from [email protected] inviting her to participate as a mystery shopper. My step mother informed me of the opportunity, and I applied. No fee for registration.

Some days later I received a package in the mail with a page of instructions and a bank check for $2900. The check was from Altura Credit Union in Riverside California, check number 5980153003.

The page of instructions included references to money-gram stores, western union stores, and banks. Instructed to complete the assignment as quickly as possible, then send reports to [email protected] and [email protected]

It asked me to deposit or cash the check from my personal account, subtract $200 as my payment, then send a text to (478) 273-2198 for further instructions. I did not try to cash the check, as I suspected fraud. I sent a text to the phone number asking for further instructions.

The instructions were to go to the nearest Bank of America branch and deposit the cash into the account of one Anne Murray-Bruce, account number 1685602379. This is indicated in the screenshot attached to this report.

Type of a scam Employment

I applied with this company called Mystery Shoppers for at home work. They contacted me telling me that my application had been approved. Several weeks later they sent me a cashier’s check in the amount of $2310 telling me to deposit it into my account…this was for the cost of the retail evaluations that I was going to be performing, transportation, shopping and the remaining balance I was to send to someone in NY thru Money Gram. The purpose of the transfer of funds was to acess my ability to follow instructions. This is a scam. Anyone that gets contacted by a company called Mystery Shoppers do not respond. Needless to say, the check was a fraud. I was contacted by my bank. I had to go to the bank and show them my emails proving that I was not the one that fraudulently created the check. I had to file a police report and it was a mess.
