Another Email Scam

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Crossroads Real Estate LLC

Beware of shop at home scams.  I received an e-mail with an offer to get paid for being a secret shopper.  This scam used a well known established name and appeared to be sent by an Internet job search.  The only problem is, I am not registered at the Internet job search which appeared to send the e-mail. 

It was easy to see it was a scam because the reply e-mail address was not for the company on the offer but through a free e-mail server.  Major companies do not use free e-mail servers. 

To check out these offers, copy and paste the name of the company in a search engine.  If the company lists the address and phone number on the contact page but not on the e-mail, it may be a scam.  E-mail signatures from major companies will usually contain the contact information. 

This particular company included a page on their web site warning about scams and how to avoid them.  One of the suggestions listed is, never send money or share financial information via e-mail. 

It is usually easy to find Blog sites warning about scams.
