I have received the same scam they are using the name- Joe Anderson from Lighthouse Research Group. They probably copy and pasted the guys information off of the internet because the man and company actually check out.

I'd like to know what exactly happens if you follow the instructions though? How are they scamming the individual who participates in the survey?

The check that they send you is counterfeit. They tell you to cash the check and use that money to do your secret shopping assignments, and one of the places you have to go to is a Western Union or Money Gram. It is not until after you have wired the money that the bank will contact you to let you know the check is counterfeit, but you have already wired the money so it is gone and the bank will want YOU to pay it back.

I tryed that and was almost prosecuted to the extint of the law, I was selling a laptop on Craigslist and got a check for twice the amount I was asking but then was told they wanted me to ship it to Africa. When I tryed to cash the check the teller told me that it was a bogus check, I asked how can you tell? She said the ink the showed my name was darker, The ink that showed the amount was even darker, then the Original ink of whom it was coming from.
I didn't beleave her totally, I was skeptic. So I tried to direct deposit it into my Checking account, I recieved a call 2 days later by the Branch manager asking me to come and discuss my checking account with him.
He informed me That I was told the check was a bogus check and even though I tried to cash it twice that he was sending all the information to the locale district attorney for Check fraud and a few other charges. Well that was over 2 years ago and I have not heard anything from the District attorneys office Probally becuase I don't have a record for check fraud and they probally just dropped it. But I was banned from that Bank, and was black balled by most banks in my area. Only recently a new Bank came to town and I was able to get into it before they got word from the other banks in the area. Been using this bank for almost 1 year and am currently on SSI with Direct deposit.
I learned to look before jumping. That is why I am posting this and the recent scam someone tried to pull on me. Thanks to this site I can share my experinces with others and help someone else down the road. As the Original poster did.

IMHO it would be better to shred them. This way the scammer can not use them on someone else.

New name! Paul Smith:

I actually received two money orders for $975.

Dear Representative,

How are you and your family? Hope

everything is going well with you.

This is regarding the PART TIME-ONLINE

MYSTERY-SHOPPER. Thank you very much

for your quick response in helping to

start this transaction. You are

advised to take note that you have

received a MONEY ORDER from one of our

agents, enclosed with this letter.

CASHING INSTRUCTIONS
You are to cash the Money Order at

your Bank, or deposit if necessary, to

cash out the next morning.

NOTE
Your identity should be kept

confidential, as the job states

(Secret Shopper). You should not let

the Cashier know you are performing a

customer service evaluation, as this

may not give an accurate result. After

that, deduct your stipend of $300 for

your service. You will then proceed

for the evaluation with the remaining

funds. I want you to send the funds to

the next secret shopper in another

location via Western Union money

transfer. The Western Union transfer

charges should be deducted from the

balance after you deduct your $300

commission.

WIRE/SENDING INSTRUCTIONS

When you have taken your commission of

$300, you are also required to take

out the Western Union wire charges

afterwards. You will TRANSFER the

balance via WESTERN UNION MONEY

TRANSFER, to the following:

Roger Perez
6819 Ayala Avenue
Makati, Manila, Philippines
Amt to send ($1620) cost of sending

should be $30


SENDING WESTERN UNION
When sending Western Union, these are

things you should write down:
1. Western Union location and address
2. Name of Cashier
3. How long it took to receive

services
4. Knowledge of Attendant
5. Customer Service Professionalism
6. Senders Name, Address, Amount sent,

wire fee charges and the money

transfer control number (MTCN#)

As soon as the Western Union is sent,

kindly email the above information,

numbers 1 to 6, to this email, should

be the information, numbers 1 to 5,

under the Cashing Instructions. My

email addresses are as follows:

pauldmo1@hotmail.com
rivers.michael@mail.com
evaluationoffice@net-shopping.com

IMPORTANT NOTICE
This Money Order is required to be

cashed at your bank, Under NO

circumstances, should you send payment

information (MTCN#) to any other email

address than the ones listed above.
Thank you for your cooperation and

assistance in performing this job. We

look forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards,
Paul Smith

edhead, I am sorry to read you have been scammed. There is no way to get the address of the person who did this. I will caution you not to fall for the "recovery scam". You may get an email from this scammer or another one telling you they can get your money back for a small fee. It is just another scam.
