He sent and email about mystery shopper in my area.. I responded with my mailing address and phone number and said I would be sent details on the job. I received and email and a text message today saying I needed to look for my first assignment in the mail today. When I opened it there was a check for $2815.60 and said I should deposit it and wait 24hrs for funds to be avaliable. Then I was to follow the mystery shopper instructions: shop at Wal Mart, buy things I would use. I was then to use Western Union to wire the rest minus the transfer fees and my payment of $200 and $50 for what I purchased. I am to email him the report on my shopping expierience and answer a few qustions. I was to email him the transfer number from western union.
