“The woman reportedly received a letter in the mail from Corporate
Survey Services asking her to take surveys of area restaurants for
their company. The letter mentioned a prior company the victim had
previously done similar work for legitimately and included a check for
about $2,500, police said.
Instructions with the check directed the woman to cash it, keep a portion of the money and send the rest back via Western Union. According to the report, the woman did so last month and then filled out a survey about Red Lobster.
Her bank contacted her a short time later about her account being overdrawn.
“The victim then found out that the check sent to her was a fraud,” police wrote in the report.
Police say the woman tried to contact the company listed on the letter but got only a recording saying the mailbox was full.”
We have similar reports here and here. One of the reasons she is scammed is because she did not do a search and find websites like ours and be warned of such scams. In this BAD TIMES, be extra more careful about deals that are too good to be true. In bad times like this, you are lucky to find NORMAL income, and not LUCKY stuffs that are most likely scams. Unless you are holding a real winning ticket for the real Mega Millions, the rest are fake.
