The company sends a check in the mail with instructions s on how to be a paid secret shopper. The check is from the Wal-Mart home store, in my case Bentonville, AR. They ask you to allow 12-24 hours for the Che k to clear and give you instructions on withdrawing money, signing into their Web page (privform.com), then accepting and commpleting assignments, which include wiring the majority of the money in a Western Union transfer to Madrid Spain and in a Wal-Mart to Wal-Mart transfer, in my cas to GA (yes, I took the bait). I was able to cancel my transactio.s-thank goodness and probably saved myself alot of misery. I reported this to the fraud departments of both Wal-Mart and Western Union.
