Received a letter asking me to cash a United States Postal Service Money order in the amount of $980.00.Keep $120 for myself as assignment salary. Spend $30 dollars at my local Wal-Mart and to perform a MoneyPak Reload/Topup reload with the remaining 830 dollars. All this was supposed to be accomplished within the next 24 hours. Almost fell for it too but as I read the accompanying letter I notice several grammar, spelling, capitalization and punctuation errors. Also received and email from the same individual telling me my package was on the way. The thing that really tipped me off was the money order was totally blank except for the amount and the name of the sender was different than the name of the contact person in the letter and the return address on the envelope was a Chase bank branch here in Colorado Springs

I was sent a letter(via Priority Mail) with a United States Postal Money Order for $970. The letter was printed on a sheet of regular notebook paper - my first clue - with numerous punctuation mistakes. I was told that $150 of the money was my "salary". I was told to go ahead and deposit the money order into my account .I was instructed to use the remainder of the money to purchase 2 Green Dot Moneypak Cash Top Up Cards at $4.95 per card, split the remaining $810, and put $405 on each card. I was told to carefully scratch the cards and send the PINs along with my evaluation. Although I have sent a reply email stating that I received my "packet", and a text stating that I have deposited the money order and am waiting for it to clear, this will never see my account. The return address on the priority mail sticker is 730 W 21st St. Norfolk Va 23517. The address on the money order for Mr. Anderson is 21 Western Rd Colonia NJ 07000.
