Woman Scammed In Mystery Shopper Job
A Silver Springs Woman thought she found a dream job. Secret shopping: being paid to spend someone else's money. Or so she thought before she fell victim to a scam.
Kimberly Hall of Silver Springs says she received an email from someone advertising positions as a mystery shopper. Once she applied on line and was accepted, she received a check in the mail from the company wanting her to shop.
Not all mystery shopping is a scam, but police say to avoid being scammed, you should take the check to your bank; not for them to cash or deposit into your account, but to investigate it to see if it's legit.
