This one is for Wal-Mart, I figure it's a scam but never seen one like it before (and it's a late night for me) Seems to originate from either the UK or Switzerland.

Hello Applicant,

One of America's largest, discount department outlet is re-branding.The Retail Industry is a competitive world, with each retailer vying for the attention of consumers in an increasingly cluttered market. We do not want to rely on proprietary data collection processes and technology alone, we need appraisers to collect specific data about their experience and opinion when they visit this retail outlet, in a time efficient and cost effective manner.

You will be giving cash to shop at any Wal-Mart location. 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, color, payment procedures, gift items and shopping/carrier bags etc, 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 there 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 acustomer 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 $3,650 which would cover your payment of $150 for shopping and extra $150 commission. As soon as you receive the Check you would Cash/Deposit it at your bank, deduct your $150 for shopping and your $150 commission, you use the rest of the money ($3650) 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 sent to you. You would have to keep a comprehensive report on every activity you carry out.

My catcher occasionally sweeps these up. I applied for the job a couple of times, but I never got it.

I've looked a bit into what its all about - The trick is that they send the victim the salary on a cheque that's made out for a larger amount. The victim is then told to cash the cheque, take his own part and WU the remainder.

Needless to say - The cheque is fake Evil or Very Mad

Killer cat attitude:
I know what you're thinking MUGU — "Am I a lion or only a cat?"
Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself.
But being a lion, the most powerful predator in the world I would bite your MUGU head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question:
"Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, MUGU?

I have been a real secret shopper. The average pay is $10 - 20, NEVER in the hundreds of dollars. Before I was a real secret shopper,I fell for one of these scams; they sent me what looked like an official check. After receiving it, I destroyed it and emailed them back. STAY FAR AWAY. [/b]
