When said pkg arrived it contained instructions, and a check drawn on a JP Morgan Chase account for the amt of $1,680.00.

I was then to send $1300.00 via WM2WM money transfer SVC using the info I gave above for the recipient. The final 300.00 remaining was to be mine for doing this. Like I said, I couldn’t conduct this mystery shop, but I had some suspicions as to the legitimacy of this transaction, so I took the chk to WM and tried to cash it.
