Received unsolicited email (below) today June 8, 2009. These scams generally send out a counterfeit check. Everybody please feel free to run up scammers' Fedex bills! If there are any agencies that prosecute such scams we will have an abundance of evidence. I'm new to the group so I don't know how many read this, but if enough of us respond, it will cost the scam perpetrators plenty in postage. I suggest that we also respond to those Craigslist mystery shopper scams and make scammers send us Fedex overnight.

I too have been contacted. I did not know it was a scam until I received a check for $1,950.00 today from a bank account from Citizens Bank of East Providence RI. I plan on calling the bank in the morning to alert them. I lost no money but this jerk has my personal identifiable information. Once I emailed them that I received the check I received the following email:


Thanks for the response. Now you are to deduct your own money which is $150 as the pay for the survey, So you will also deduct $50 for the shopping and also send the rest of the money through WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER as this is a part of survey. Kindly get this done today.

Thank You
