Accompany e-mailed me after I inquired about a secret shopper job. They said I was approved and would be in touch. On March 10, 2012 I received an e-mail stating UPS would be delivering $1850.00 in money orders. I was to cash them at my bank and send $1550.00 Western Union to another secret shopper. That this Western Union branch had a complaint of missing funds. I was to report back with details of the store and customer service, trans-action number and all other details. I completed this assignment on March 12, 2012. On March 14, 2012 I received another assignment. Same details except I sent money to two addresses of. Each $1550.00. The total amount of the money orders equaled $3700.00. Today March 16, 2012 the bank called to report the money orders were frauds. Please help me fix this situation.     (via http://www.scambook.com/report/view/88475/shopservemailcom-or-LaurieRidgwaymailcom-Complaint-88475-for-$15,550.00)
