Hi, a week ago I sent my contact form out to Shadow Shopper and two days ago I received a text from a Daniel Beachy. Daniel Beachy informed me that he was my shopper coordinator and that my first shopper assignment has been delivered to me.
He asked me to confirm my schedule for this week so I did. He informed me that I would received a package via USPS with instructions of what I needed to do. Yesterday, I received a package with a check in the amount of $1,980 and instructions of what I needed to do. The first step asked me to deposit the check and then the instructions requested that I buy a bunch of I-tunes and Amazon gift cards no larger than $100 each at different locations.
Out of the $1,980, I would be paid $330.00 and the rest I would purchase the gift cards. Once I purchase the gift cards I would scratch the back of each card and send them a picture of the codes for each card to two email addresses provided. Since all of this sounded fishy to me I contacted the bank in PA where the check came from and when I spoke of one of the Branch Managers he informed me that the check is fraudulent and that I should not deposit it into my bank account. At this moment, I'm heading to the police and reporting this matter to the FBI IC3 Unit.
Daniel Beachy texted me yesterday and asked me did I deposit the check, I said sure, lol, this gang thinks they're smarter than me but I'm a old cat from the hood, lol.
Just beware anyone whose vulnerable can fall for these scams. I am attaching the check and the letter that was sent to me.
Reason of review: I almost got scammed.
I didn't like: That i almost got scammed.
