    It's "Secret Shopper Scam #2", where they send you a stolen check. You cash it, and then test how well Western Union can instantly send the money to Nigeria. :madgo:

    When the fraudulent check bounces, the sucker has to pay it all back. But wait, the money is gone. :zx11pissed:

    Red flag #1: free gmail address
    Red flag #2: use of Western Union
    Red flag #3: legit mystery shopper companies pay AFTER you submit receipts for the job you picked, they don't randomly send checks out.
