Details of Scam Report
This scam used spoofed LinkedIn accounts of some of my contacts to try to validate that they have used this Secret Shopper service to make money. I sent them my name, address, and phone number and they sent me a letter along with a check for $2,960.00 instructing me to keep $400 and send the remainder to an address via Money Gram from a local Warlmart for the purpose of evaluating the Walmart service. I have a copy of the LinkedIn message that appeared to be from one of my contacts, the check and the letter.

I had gotten same scam email. If it has an email address of "" or" or" it is a mail service used by scammers. They can create any domain they want to to attempt to scam. The check is a fake, and you will be on the hook to your bank if you cash it.
