Gabriel Craig really wants to get in touch with me

Seriously, who send three emails within 5 minutes with the same subject and content unless it’s urgent?  I feel so…wanted?  Silly spammer.  Full text ahead:

It’s the same-old, same-old.  A recipient responds and he sends additional information explaining how he’ll send a check for for the recipient to shop.  Oops, the check was made for too much.  Just keep your portion and send back the rest via wire transfer.  By the time the check bounces, he’ll disappear and the recipient is stuck with the negative balance and record of depositing fraudulent checks.  Just delete this one and move on.  Reporting it may not do any good.  

Until next time, be safe and smart.

  1. So is this TRULY a scam? If so what is the motive? I’ve been burned once by another company & left with a -$2,960.05 balance with Chase Bank. Please let me know. Thanks!

    • Sorry to hear you were scammed, Vincent. Yes, it is a scam. Legit secret shopper gigs to exist, but they do not pay over a set rate and ask you to send a portion back to them.
