contacted by text and asked if I was interested in being a secret shopper. since I had signed up on line I thought this was one of the legit companys that had seen my application. He sent a cashier\'s check(Phony) for me to deposit and then take out the money to get money orders to send to another shopper. I was also asked to evaluate my bank and a sales person at Walmart. I was to keep 250 for my self. Take 50 to shop with and 80 to send a fed ex package with the money to the next shopper. Dumb move not to wait until the check really cleared. Cleaned out my account when it was discovered to be phony and I had to pay the bank and restablish my account. AS said if is it too good to be true it is. It seem so easy, then you have to wonder why would someone send you almost 2000 dollars up front for a job that you have not done or may not do. It was really stupid on my part, however I hope this does not happen to anyone else.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
