Complaint / review text:
I was asked to perform customer service checks for Secret S choppers. I was told the money would be sent to me, I was to cash the Postal Money orders (2 for $995 each), at my bank, take $1750 cash to perform the job. (I checked with the post office on authenticity of the money order... I was it looked valid). The first first job was to do a check on customer service of a local Western Union office. The $1750 was wired to a person named David Madu, in Dubai. I reported back to Mr. Anderson my opinion of customer service. A week later, I received another request. This time, it was 4 money order for $995 each and I was to do exactly the same thing at another Western Union. This time $1750 was wired to David Madu and the other to Owen Grant. When I went to Western Union, the person asked me if I personally knew these individuals. She suggested before I wire the money I do more investigation. I went home, emailed David Anderson, and told him Western Union was questioning the wire. Mr Anderson called me from and private number. He told me this was a Secret Shopper assignment and very real. He claimed to be a father of 4 and a christian. I went back to the Western Union, and wired the money. Later that evening I received a call from customer service of Western Union. They asked me questions and told me this was a scam and they were not allowing me to wire the money. They gave me wiring instructions. I went back to the Western Union and got the $3500.00 back. I am out $1990 from the first job, and $380 from the 2nd. Whats truly insulting is I continue to receive requests to perform jobs from Mr. Anderson even after I sent him an email telling him I found out he was a con artist.
