get paid $200.00 per \"assignment\" to be a secret shopper. Then they send you a fake cashiers check worth about 2200.00 and ask you to deposit in YOUR bank account, wait 24 hours for it to \"clear\", then go to Western Union and send the $ (minus your fee of $200 of course) to an address in Chicago. I obviously realized this was a scam right away, as of course nothing was mentioned in the ad about using your bank account. Obviously, they can stop payment on the \"cashier\'s check\" at any time and you would be responsible to Western Union for the $2000.00 you authorized to have wired.
