I too have been contacted. I did not know it was a scam until I received a check for $1,950.00 today from a bank account from Citizens Bank of East Providence RI. I plan on calling the bank in the morning to alert them. I lost no money but this jerk has my personal identifiable information. Once I emailed them that I received the check I received the following email:
Thanks for the response. Now you are to deduct your own money which is $150 as the pay for the survey, So you will also deduct $50 for the shopping and also send the rest of the money through WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER as this is a part of survey. Kindly get this done today.
