I received a letter in the mail, offering me a job to be a secret shopper. They sent me a check drawn from a legit bank and I had to call and get it activated. I first called and asked a whole bunch of questions but it seemed okay, so I thought I'd give it a try. Mark Armstrong was this guys name, the phone number is 1-289-892-3907. I was to Western Union to send $1,573(fees included) to Angela Murphy in London, England. Then I was told to spend $70 at a store and keep $350 for my salary. After each assignment was done I would have to fax a comment sheet to them. After I faxed the last one, I called them to confirm and they screened my call and never answered my phone calls. I checked my bank account on 10/13/2011 and the check I cashed was returned deposited because it was altered/fictitious and my whole bank account had to compensate for it plus a $500 overdraft. So I have no money. My boyfriend then called the company from his phone, they answered on the first ring but then put them on hold after he confronted the scamming. He then called back and they began screening his calls. DO NOT DO ANYTHING THAT SOUNDS LIKE THIS UNLESS IT'S WITH A REAL COMPANY. FACE TO FACE

  • I got the same letter in the mail on October 3rd. but I was told to wire money via western union to valerie martin 1 Churchill PL, london. I also spoke with mark Armstrong and he stopped answering my calls after I told him my bank put a hold on the check. I contacted the bank that was listed on the check. It was the Bank of New York Mellon and they are investigating this but I lost the letter with their address. Did you save it?? if so please let me know the address so I can contact the bank with it. I want these low life people to get caught.
