After another night of tossing and turning, I got up to the gray skies knowing snow was coming today.
We were not in for a lot perhaps an inch or two where we are, but you never know with the weather lines.. could get more, could get less.
So went to my pain doctor for my trigger point injections. She was hoping that would give me some relief to sleep for a few nights... we will see..
The did some grocery stopping and then came home and got the mail. One letter had a Canadian postmark and I thought it was from a friend there. When I opened it there was a check for over 2990.00 for payment for being a mystery shopping. Now get this... after I deposited the check, I would be told to go to Walmart where they would give me my 30 minute lesson on being a mystery shopper, then I would purchase something for 50.00 and keep it after sending in the receipt, then go to Sears, purchase something and send in the receipt, again keeping the merchandise. Then I could have a free lunch at McDonalds all from this money and I could also keep 300.00 for my salary.
Now here comes the catch, I would then take 2 1300 amounts and wire it one from Western Untion and the othe through money gram back to the company who sent me the money. And should they need me again to "assist" them, then they will contact me.
So I went to the website for the company who wrote the check and it was for Chiropractor equipment. They I went to the site for the mystery shopping part and there was a big red flag up their about this company who has stolen their name and having consumers cashing checks for them and then taking the money back in pay pal accounts.
So I called our local television station and reported this, Now I have to send a copy to the postmaster since this is considered a form of money laundering and also to the BBB here so they can investiage.
