Applied for a job as a secret shopper and would be paid 180.00 for each assignment plus 5.00/mile for travel. I signed a contract to do that and received a check in the amount of $2230.00 which I deposited in my savings on Sept.21, 2012. I was told to call on monday Sept 24, to advise Nielsen if the money was in my account yet and to withdraw $2100.00 cash. It was and they said to call Sept. 25 to get my first assignment which was for Wallmart to purchase three items in three different departments using a budget of 100.00 and note if shelves were well stocked, did people show courtesy, helpful, etc, etc. I completed thatassignmentt and went to parking lot to report to Nielsen and they gave me my next assignment which was to go to Western Union at Big Y because they had a problem in the Western Union department and they wanted me to Money Transfer through Western Union $900.00 plus 68.00 fee. When I completed that assignent the next was identical only at Shop Rite for $900.00 plus 68.00 fee. I was told that I was to return on Thursday and request a refund. I asked to do it on Tuesday but was told i needed to wait until Thursday. Tuesday night my son-in-law who suspected something when i told him about the Western Union deal and checked "Google Nielsen Scam" and at least 50 identical deals all frauds where listed with the samae detail assignments and approximately the same dollar amount. I have reported this to Western Union, Granby Police Department, my Bank, Channel 3 TV news. the CT attorney General and the NY attorney general. I am 75 and have no money. I was trying to EARN money for Oil and to go to a dentist and instead I am responsible for the $2100.00 that will be reqired to pay the Bank for the money I withdrew against what turns out to be a bogus check. BEWARE. This sound like way to legally earn money but it is far from the truth.
