Secret/Mystery Shopper Scam
secret shopper 
Alan Fox
Scam Website:
get paid $200.00 per \"assignment\" to be a secret shopper. Then they send you a fake cashiers check worth about 2200.00 and ask you to deposit in YOUR bank account, wait 24 hours for it to \"clear\", then go to Western Union and send the $ (minus your fee of $200 of course) to an address in Chicago. I obviously realized this was a scam right away, as of course nothing was mentioned in the ad about using your bank account. Obviously, they can stop payment on the \"cashier\'s check\" at any time and you would be responsible to Western Union for the $2000.00 you authorized to have wired.

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.
