    • Shopping Evaluators Agency Complaint / User Submitted Image #7735

I filled out an application online for a position as a mystery shopper and was contacted by phone by the company. They said they could either mail me a check or direct deposit the money, and that since it was coming from Canada direct deposit would be faster. I opted for the check since I didn't want to give out my bank info. They said to call when I received it for further instructions. When the check for $1980.00 came I was told to deposit the check and let them know when the funds were available. The funds were available the next day.I was then told to go to the bank and withdraw $1800.00 which was the amount that my 3 assignments would take and $180.00 was my salary. I was told that one of my assignments was to evaluate Western Union and she gave me a location and to whom I was to send the money. It was to go to David Williams in London, UK. So I sent the $1596.00with a fee of $104.00 totaling $1700.00. I was told to call with the MTCN # as soon as I had completed the transaction. Then I was to go spend $45.00 at JC Penny's and $55.00 at K-Mart (since there is not a K-Mart in my town Wal-Mart would be fine since they were there clients also). My contact person was to email me the evaluation form to be filled out and returned with the receipts from the stores. By the end of the day "Carol Spivey" my contact person called to inform me that there was a problem with the MTCN # and I needed to go check it out. I did and there was a hold on the money but after the clerk called Western Union they released the hold. At that point I was no longer able to reach "Carol" and never received the evaluation form. I called all the next day worried that I had failed in some way...7/20/11 i deposited the check..7/21/11 funds were available and I wired the money and completed the other 2 assignments..7/22/11 the account had been closed on the check they sent..7/23/11 I went to withdraw some cash from my account for my son's birthday party and found out that I was $1992.00 overdrawn!! I have a copy of the check, all the paperwork they sent, the western union papers and the other receipts. I filed a police report and get daily calls from Chase bank asking me when I am going to make up this deposit to the bank.
