Kitty Robinson was looking to make some extra money so she got online and saw the Mystery web page. She put her name and address in and began receiving things. As a new "secret shopper", Robinson's first assignment was to complete four money order transfers totaling more than nine thousand dollars.

I just got my check for $2,450.00 and felt after looking at the check and being a prior bank teller, new it was brobably a fraudulant check:

1. The account number or lack of numbers I should say didn't match up to the numbers on my account (10)
2. I wasn't home when it arrived but I went to my bank and asked them to copy it and verify with the bank in texas if it was good, first, Of course it's 3 hours different and already closed, next day is a holiday and so I figured it might be a scam and the bank said they get at least one a week.
3. Mine was Wal-Mart and moneygram $2,005.
4. Money orders for those of you who don't know are usually only good for amounts under $1,000 and Cashiers or certified checks are good for any amount.

Good luck on getting these jerks.
I have a few friends in the FBI and I have already contacted them. Lets pray they can help.
take care and don't be scamed.

No Problem Ive been researching all night. I just got certified at MSPA as a mystery shopper. Silver Certification costs 15 USD. I thought it was worth a shot
