When they call the phone number they are told to cash the cheque at their own bank and then to evaluate several businesses by using the money from the cashed cheque to purchase products from the named businesses.

this is not a new scam...been hearing about it since the 90's. if people actually fall for it, then that is about that person being uneducated and gullable, just like the phone calls we all get from the "captian" saying we won money over the sound of a ships horn. if you have to send money for anything, its usually fake, such as the lost prince who needs a way home.

I don't get it!!! When are people going to learn that if it seems to good to be true, it usually is!! This type of behavior has been in the news now for years, some people just refuse to pay attention and end up thousands of dollars in debt. I for one have heard this story a number of times, so I certainly wouldn't take part in it. Who would actually send someone they didn't know $4000 - $5000 and tell them to go shopping...the light should have come on right there! All you need is a little common sense people!
