There was an e-mail sent to me about working as a secret shopper. I answered and received by priority mail an assignment to evaluate a Walt-Mart store. Also, included was a check for 1,996.00.
From this check, I was to take $00.00 doing the survey, %0 To shop at Wal Mart and send the balance to the next shopper by Western Union. If this was done I would lose $1,6096 to possible fraud. What do I do with the check?

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.
