Normally I do surveys online and forget about how many I responded to.I received a package in the mail stating,”mystery shopping survey assignment”,to buy gift cards of up to 2000.00they sent a check of 2,350.00 of which 250.00 would be my pay stating I’m to deposit it in my account.Did that my bank did not clear the check the same day but it took three days for them to put the fund in my account not knowing that the financial institution doesn’t exist.I bought the eBay cards and gave them the number and I’m in a minus of 2079.68
