Complaint / review text:
I was searching for Mystery Shopper work on line and I found this company advertising that they were looking for Mystery Shoppers. They provided a Web Site to go to fill out an application. The website was CONTINENTALEVALUATION.com. I provided the minimal information that was required and in approximately one week I received an envelope with a lot of logos on the bottom of it: Pepsi, Hardees, etc.
They told me that my first assignment was to evaluate Western Union at Wal-Mart. They sent me a check for $995 and told me take take it to the bank it was drawn on to cash, which was a CHASE Bank in Syracuse, New York. I was to keep $100 for my duties and Western Union an amount to a name and address provided. This was to happen within a span of 48 hours. (That's because they new this check would not clear!)
I went to a CHASE BANK and they cashed it!
... Needless to say the check didn't clear and now the bank is after me for the money!!!
My question becomes, does CHASE not know that these counterfeit checks exist?
Continental Evaluation is the main culprit, however, CHASE bank should hold some liability here also.
Please don't get taken like me. These people are frauds and theives.
