Additional Complaint Information
It has come to the attention of the Bureau that consumers are receiving correspondence allegedly from this business, advertising opportunities as a mystery shopper. However when the consumer expresses interest, the offer is revealed to be a variation of the ubiquitous "check scam". In the check scam, a consumer is provided with a check and instructed to deposit this check in their personal bank account. They are then instructed to forward a portion of those funds onward, usually via wire transfer, and "keep the rest for themselves". However, while the check may appear to clear the bank, it is not in fact a valid check. When this discovery is made, the consumer is responsible for those funds, with the end result being the consumer has sent their own money. This type of scam is also known as an overpayment scam, and has many variations. Additionally, it is important for consumers to note that many times, legitimate businesses find their identities being used fraudulently by offers such as this, in order to lend legitimacy to the scam. Consumers should be aware that with a scam like this the businesses are either non-existent, or are not involved with this scheme.

Consumers who have lost money after acting on a check that they received via postal mail are also encouraged to file a complaint with the USPIS at http://www.lookstoogoodtobetrue.com/complaint.aspx
