Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

This site is recommended as a verified mystery shopper job. Initially they send an email from Capstone Research explaining your application is being process. After a couple of weeks another email explains your acceptance and instructions that will be received by regular mail. They send a check that would be deposit into your account. From that point all communication is through text messages. The task involves a visit to Walmart to “evaluate” their money center customer service by sending a money order to another “secret shopper” in another state. The checks sent end up being bad checks, reason why their “tasks” must be done within 24 hours. Beware of mystery shopping companies recommended on blogs and other websites on social media. This one was highly recommended and was a total scam.
