Email calming hiring for secret shopper for Target
My Complaint: Received a email that Target was hiring for secret shoppers. Was told they would provide me with a $300 gift card to do the shopping. All I had to do was report how the store, bathrooms, Employee are. So I applied, they didn’t ask for personal information. So I got a text message that I was approved, and they would be sending me information within a week with the first job. So I got a package in the mail with a letter of instructions plus a check for $2830.00. The letter had instructions on what to do. They wanted me to go get a $100 Itunes gift card get the employees name who helped me and what not then they wanted me to go 2 different walmarts in my area and wire money. They wanted me to use the check they gave me minus $300.00 which was my commission. I was to wire money to these two people so I could see how fast the wire was sent and how customer service was. Well It didn’t sit right with me so I called the bank on the check they provided which looks very real. Like a Payroll Check and explained to the banker what was going on. He called his fraud department and they confirmed the check was fake. I am glad I looked into it first. Otherwise I would have deposited that check and I would have to had paid for that money out my own pocket.
My Demand: like for people to know about this scam that is going around
