I received a ck also mine was for 1745.00 I was to keep 600 for me and follow the directions from the email. Well my bank only let 600 go and I didn't touch it. In the end I paid the 15.00 returned ck fee. It was some kind of health ins ck from Dennis Hawkins I saved all the emails. And the priority mail package.
People are scamming with everything from jobs to places to rent. Recently some lady named Brenda waters is trying to steal your identity, thank goodness my family member thought it sounded strange, and did not send the application through. These people know the economy is bad and people are desperate for a better place to live . This place for rent sounded legitimate , was similar to all the other condos and townhouses we looked at, but then the lady in last email, requested personal info, before allowing us to see property , a transunion credit report requested, address. Luckily none of the info was provided to this scam artist, apparently this lady or man goes by different names. Everyone needs to be careful.
I just got a check for 950.50 iam not f###ing with that mess
I got an e-mail with the subject saying new job offer from USA Henceforth i read the e-mail full of grammar and spelling mistakes. It raised a red flag for me because it asked me to call 2 different phone numbers (347) 603-0098 and
(347) 788-1902. A man named Dennis Hawkins stated that they already had my name and contact information but wanted me to call or e-mail him back my information so he could confirm it. I instead decided to look up the company he said he worked for BMG Customer Research Inc. U.S. Office: 360 Madison Avenue 6th Floor New York, NY 100711 - I found this page and it confirmed what I thought it was - a scam
ANY company that does not require you to go to their website search for the assignments, or do a small training is FRAUD! I have been a secret shopper for 18 years and I NEVER have received an email like the BMG email that was legit. No company will ever require you to receive or send any money. You go to their sites, sign up for n assignment, get the assignment, then do a small report online, then get paid (either direct deposit or hard copy check). I train people how to become successful and smart secret shoppers and IM also an evaluator for the USDA and a PI. So, be careful w/ANY random emails you receive.
Ive received that same email from BMG, a few times over the years. Spam it then delete it! I would also do as many blogs about that kind of stuff as you can, with social media there's NO reason why these criminals should be able to get over on people.
My advice to wanna be secret shoppers...go to the MPSA website and become certified, I believe its still under $20, get your silver certification and go from there. There are a TON of companies to work for. Tip: secret shopping does not pay a lot, unless you do five to six jobs in one day, then it still is not a high paying job, its a fun side job and you get to be covert and sometimes eat n drink for free (your money up front first w/reimbursement on your check later).
Good luck and happy shopping everyone! :)
There is an address in New York on my email. Has anyone ever checked that out?
I received an email from this company signed from Dennis Hawkins.
Thank you so much for alerting folks to what this BMG company really is.
My husband just received the same check....IT IS A FRAUD!!!THANK GOODNESS HE HAS SMART WIFE WITH COMMON SENSE!! WHO IS GOING TO SEND YOU MONEY FOR FREE!!
So I recieved a check for 1850 from these people.. I knew something wasn't right from the start.. Call your local police!! The more people that file a police report the easier it will to catch these idiots.. Might be some sort of reward for doing the right thing!! WHATEVER YOU DO,DO NOT CASH THE CHECK!! I didn't recieve a call. Just a letter in the mail with a check
I fell for this and now I have 2 felony warrants. Thank goodness I have proof that it was a scam. But I hope this dude gets his a** busted for this. I had never been arrested in my life and I went to jail for this.
You need to *not* spend the money and go back where you cashed/deposited it and tell them its a fake and you just found out. There's plenty of proof here to print out that its a fraud and you where scammed!
Then, report this! If you see any of those ads again, report them to craigslist and the authority's.
Please do file reports with the FBI, your state attorney general and Department Of Justice,FTC & FCC..
I just got a certified envelope with a detailed instructed letter from the company Pro Customer Research Inc.position:customer service evaluater.. ID#015NO9A

This is the x exact way its typd on letter. I receently did this type of job for some one else and turns out i know owe my bank 1,286.00 . It was my first job thing and i have applied forshadow shopping jobs for
Extra income thing on the internet. I would answer as many email shadow shoppingjobs i could and wasnt keeping track of any thing so when the check with instruction arrived i was surprised and accepted the so called job. Everything went just as instructed except they never called back for evaluation or receipt for shopping job. Then i get a letter from my bank saying i had a check return and i was in the negetive $1,286.53. This was 3weeks later. I didnt have a clue until the bank started keep all my direct deposits. Claiming that i deposited a fictitious check. WTF. So be weary. Sell avon its fun its a great way to make good honest money, and everyone loves avon. If u do decide to look into being an avon representative. Mention where u heard it from Dorine Willingham of el centro, ca. Lets work together. Go to www.youravon.com start earning today. I have made this avonpromotion on my own freewill, i believe in the products avon has to offer. Stay away from shadow shopping. If its to good to be true, it probably is. No gets something for nothing. Thank you. Tell me what you think firstname.lastname@example.org. good luck
Turn it in at your bank and tell them to go after this guy. TELL them to (they'll just "file" it if you don't make a big deal of it).
He also uses the name Davis Anderson, supposedly from Belgium and is moving his family to the US. Dennis Burton is Davis' assistant that messed up and sent money that the was to be sent to the shipping company to ship their belongings to the US. You are then instructed to western union the money to the Philippines.
DO NOT attempt to cash this check...its a total scam
Me too same this . It's a scam. I hope that some elderly person doesn't fall for this. I'm notifying the FBI. Matter of fact I think I will just mail the check I received to them directly.
also got an email from him from email@example.com
I feel so stupid i receive a cashier check and open a new account to with it. Save 200 dlls and send de rest by wester union to MArk Didier in Chicago IL. I don´t know if the check bounce , and don´t wana know ..what am I gona do , I¨m broke. After 4 Day I receive another check from Dennis Kress , suntrust Bank for 4,800. I;m suppost to cash the check and send the rest to two diffents person . Mark DIdier, from Chicago IL 60626 the amount 1,800 and to James PHIllips, also from Chicago $1800.
I¨m gona take the check to the back and let them check it. I even belive that by the time i recive the first check my mail account was hacker.
I, too, received a check for 870.00 which was not solicitated and started looking up on the internet only to find a myriad of comments about Dennis Burton and how he has tried to scam so many people. The phone number in my letter was (347) 603-0098 and the SMS# (347) 788-1902. Let's hope somebody working in Cyber space tracks down this lowlife.
