Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
They reached out through my student email to do secret shopping and would mail me my first assignment. They texted me, and I didn’t think to keep the number but blocked instead that the check should be arriving. Once I received the check and read the assignment to go and purchase postal money orders, I knew it was a scam and wanted to report it. Also, the return address was Chicago, IL and the mail came from Los Angeles, CA and the check had an address in VT. I told my kids that this was a scam and I was going to report it. I didn’t cash the check as I know that I’m not trying to mess up any of my accounts and my life. I see this happen all the time to people on TV.
