Secret Shopper Scam

There is a legit company called Secret Shopper. However, there are scammers sending out emails pretending to be this company. The real secret shopper company has even posted a warning about this on their website secretshopper.com. This is one of those things where they send you a fake check and you are to deposit it and then take money out and wire it to them. You will be able to get the money from the check because by law the banks must make funds available to you within a few days and it takes a couple of weeks for a check to clear. By the time they find out the check is fake the scammer is long gone with your money and now you owe your bank money.

Here is what this email looks like. As you can see there are several errors throughout the email. They even call themselves Goodrich Direct in the beginning.
