On 5/25/18, I received an unsolicited email (from [email protected]) indicating that Kroger-Shoppers were needed for secret customers. You would receive $100 if you registered and were selected. (No $100 received). Payment for each assignment would be $250-$400. You could shop any products at your designated store. In mid-June, a Priority Mail shipment was sent to my address. Inside the envelope was a check for $1,950 and a letter on plain white paper (not company letterhead). The instructions in the letter said to immediately email the company (both at [email protected] and [email protected]) and text to the phone numbers provided when I received the package. The check was to be deposited and the funds promised within 24 hours. Purchases of ITUNE gift cards were to be made in the amount of $1600 (in the denominations of $50 or $100) at two or more Kroger stores. Then a photo of each gift card showing the pin/serial numbers was to be emailed to the email addresses provided. Several statements in the letter stressed that this process was time sensitive.I felt uneasy depositing the check, so I did not continue with the process. Today I checked the validity of the company name that appears on the check (Silver Springs Stables Corp) and found that it is no longer a registered company in Utah. Last registration expired in 2008. Other concerning details include the Priority Mail label showed it was sent June 1, but the enclosed check was dated June 19. I received the package around June 25. Sender of Priority Mail was listed as Patrician Network, 14000 SE Petrovitsky Rd, in Renton, WA 98058-8933..
