Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following "work-at-home" email. Be aware of these offers. In most of these offers the real deal is that they send you a false check (that may be honoured in the first place) and you return 90% of it by Western Union. When the check after a while bounces, you have lost all the money you sent.

If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

We provide businesses with more information than other mystery shopping companies through the use of questionnaires and detailed narratives. Once we have a contract to do so, you will be directed to the company or outlet and you will be given funds to either purchase things or require services, after which you would write a comment on the staffs activities and give a detailed report of your experience.

How long it takes before the mystery shopper is greeted
The name of the employee(s)

All you have to do is walk into any of its location buy, buy and buy till you exhaust the $150, but you have to be in the store for at least one hour, watching and taking note of everything. Remember, everything you buy is totally yours. The management of Wal-Mart intends to change the store's environment, colour, payment procedures, gift items and shopping/carrier bags etc in the coming year, it’s also looking into putting a stop to poor services, shoplifting, over-billing cash customers, wasting customer's precious time and credit card scams, but with the interest of its customers in mind. For this reasons they have decided to give their customers a great opportunity to decide. The balance of $150 is your commission for this task. You will be allocated $300 for this section, in which you will spend $150 on shopping and the
Rest $150 is for yourself.

The 2nd evaluation is MoneyGram International (Wal-Mart Location)
A lot of Wal-Mart customers have reported lapses in MoneyGram services in some Wal-Mart Stores around the U.S. Our need to act is based on reports and complaints which some customers forwarded anonymously and phone calls that were made to our head office.
The Wal-Mart (MoneyGram) Agents locations were reported for evaluation for the following reasons:

(i) Slow services
(ii) Unbalanced exchange rate
(iii) Poor services
(iv) Rudeness to customers
(v) Excess charge
1) To make a transfer of funds from a Wal-Mart location to our Agent in another state, and the funds would be picked up by our mystery shopper at the exact location which a customer reported her funds stolen from.

2) You will have to record the time at which you got to the MoneyGram Section of Wal-Mart and how many minutes it took you to get the service. You will be sent money order of $2,820 which would cover your payment of $150 for shopping and extra $150 commission. As soon as you receive the Money orders you would Cash/Deposit it at your bank, deduct your $150 for shopping and your $150 commission, you use the rest of the money ($2550) for the MoneyGram Evaluation.

3) Upon receiving the funds, you will look for a Wal-Mart location around you to carry out your task and also the Name and address of whom the Mystery shoppers transfer would be made to will send to you. You would have to keep a comprehensive report on every activity you carry out.
