A 38-year old Murfreesboro woman fell victim to a scam. The victim told police that she received an email inviting her to become a secret shopper. After receiving the email, she was directed to a website that appeared to be a valid company. She filled out several forms and within days received a check from the fictitious company. The woman then cashed the check and wired a portion of the money to an address in the Philippine’s. The victim didn’t fall for the scheme once, but four different occasions before realizing that the checks she was cashing were fake. Now, she is out over $3,000 and will have to repay the bank. As far as the suspects go, it is unknown where they really are.
