Big Spring Police Issue Mystery Shopper Scam Warning

BIG SPRING - The Big Spring Police Department sent out a scam alert to residents Monday.

BSPD says citizens are being contacted on the Internet and recruited to be mystery shoppers. If you sign up, you are supposed to receive assignments by computer and sent to local businesses to see who you are treated and check on prices.

Once you report the findings, a cashiers check is sent to you. It is often for several thousand dollars and you are requested to cash the check and keep a small portion and send the majority to an out-of-state address.

Big Spring Police say the checks are counterfeit. Police also remind citizens that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
