miami research center – not a ligitamate company

I signed up to take on-line surveys and looked into some secret shopper companies. Then, suddenly I received a letter in the mail from the Miami Research Center, Daniel Strauss, V.P. Operations, offering me "offer to participate in paide survey: Customer Service Evaluator. It included a check from Miami Federal Credit Union in the amount of $2,400.00. There were instructions to deposit the check, get cash in the amount of $1,800 and $150.00 for processing a Western Union transaction, and another $150.00 to spend at Walmart, Best Buy, or Kmart. I would need to save my receipts, fill out the survey and fax everything back to the company. The project has to be completed within 48 hours of depositing the check. Oh, and you get to keep the extra $300 as a wage and keep all the items purchased with the $150 from the retail store. Sounds good. After diligently researching and asking for my banks assistance prior to the deposit, we found that the routing # on the check does not match the Miami Federal Credit Union it is drawn on, but comes back to a State Employees Credit Union in Raleigh, North Carolina. The address for the company was 53 SW 1st Avenue in Miami. The address of the Miami Federal Credit Union on the check has an address of 51 SW 1st Avenue, Room 604 in Miami???? Odd. I had also called the customer service # to ask some questions and was transferred to an agent, where I got a voice mail box that was full and could not accept messages on two different days. – then called the Survey Coordinator at the other number provided and the man answered "Daniel -Strauss." The phone # 1-647-860-8730 is located in Ontario, Canada and the man that answered had an oriental accent. He was a foreigner posing as Daniel Strauss! I asked him many questions and presented him with all this evidence provided by my bank, the police department and my research. He adamantly denied that he was doing anything wrong and that his check would clear
