Victim Location 27526
Type of a scam Phishing
Received a USPS Priority Mail Envelope with a letter and a check inside. The letter had the Whole Foods Market logo on it along with the heading “Customer Service Evaluation Tool (CSET)”. Looked very professional and official.
The check was for $1450.52 and from Mary E. Coney at an address in Sarasota Florida. The bank on the check was Citibank with the appropriate logo. The check also looked quite professional and official.
The premise was for me to deposit the check…buy Nike gift cards, scratch off the codes, take photos of the cards (front and back), take photo of the receipt for purchase, record the name of the store, and the sales associate then email all this information to an email provided.
When all that is done, text 646-930-7183 to process my bonus.
And there you have it.
