I received an email inviting me to be a secret shopper for Premier Service Solutions, I had to provide my name, address, email and they would send me a check in advance of my services. I thought it sounded like a fun way to gain extra income so I emailed my information to them. After about two weeks I received the following email… | “Dear Brand agent , | How are you doing today? Sorry for the delay in your evaluation this email serves as a notification that your work starts this week as we received a notification from our Account Dept that payment has been mailed to you via the United States Postal Mail,Do confirm email once payment has been received as further instructions shall be emailed to you tomorrow morning confirming your work and again sorry for the delay.” | Thanks for your Co-operation | Kind Regards, | Mr Paul Jim Brand Agent Team Premier Service Solutions | The following day I received a hand-written envelope from Michael Williams, 207 South Prospect Avenue, Clearwater, FL 33756, with a check inside for $1,088.00 – nothing else. The check is typed with Pay To The Order of “me” from the Wachovia Bank, NA, New York, NY 10001. I then replied to the above email that I did receive a check in the mail, and shortly after I sent I received the following response…. “Hello We are very happy to that finally you have received your payment via POSTAL MAIL from RARE also from the WACHOVIA BANK.Proceed to your bank this morning and have payment deposited for 24 hrs then make an instant withdrawal of the funds so as to be able to proceed with your assignment as a Survey Agent.
