Update to Job Scams can Cost You.
Update:Unemployment, the fear of running out of money, loss of unemployment benefits, fears of going hungry and becoming homeless, make you desperate and an easy prey. Emails are out promising a decent if not excellent weekly wage for only a few hours of work. Seems the most popular right now is called “Mystery Shopper” and the company to mystery shop is Western Union & Moneygram.
Here is the latest email I received:
From: Larry Page
Body of email:
“Be a secretshopper and make $300 per assignment survey with western union and Moneygram. Reply with your Full names….complete address and cel # for the check to carry out assignments/tasks…….
I replied asking for information about the company. This was May 2, 2014. I have not heard back and do not expect to. Ask the questions. Look up the email on Google. There are no results available for this email address. What comes up is UKR for Ukraine. Ukr.net is an email service for Ukrainians.
Due Diligence will save you a lot of heartbreak and stress.
