I recently answered an email about being a Secret Shopper for Walmart.I filled out the application online and was accepted.I received an envelope in the mail with a check for 3400.00 and instructions on my first assignment which was to spend 150.00 in Walmart shopping and keep 150.00 for my pay and then send 2800.00 using the Western Union part in Walmart to another secret shopper in another state.The check was made out incorrectly and being I used to be employed by a Bank I knew something was wrong when I questioned them and was asked to see if my bank would accept the check anyway.Also the check issued was from a Fort Bend Independent School District and I questioned them on that also and was told they were share holders in Walmart..I sent the check back and never heard from them again..the email address I was corresponding with was grgs236@aol.com and the name was Gregs Stewart. I am so thankful and I know God was watching out for me..I hope this helps others watch out for these scammers...
