After responding to the ad, the victim receives an employment packet containing a training assignment, a list of products to purchase at different stores and a realistic-looking cashiers check, often for $2,000 to $4,000.
The training assignment is to deposit the check into the victims bank account, pose as a shopper and then use wire transfer to send the balance of the checks proceeds (minus the cost of the purchases and the consumers salary) to an address outside the United States, often in Canada.
The problem is that the check is fake; so when it bounces which occurs after the money is wired the consumer is accountable (in some cases, criminally) to the bank for the entire amount of the fake check, plus additional penalty fees. Also, in some instances, consumers are asked for personal bank account information. The company will then deposit money into their account for payment and funds with which to perform their Secret Shopper tasks. These victims often then become victims of identity theft.
