Scam Alert Warning Issued By Marie Brighton/Synovate
I want to alert you to a scam that is presently being conducted.
We recently learned about a Mystery Shopping scam that uses Synovate’s name and targets various people. The scam is distributed via ground mail, and most envelopes are postmarked as originating from Canada. Recipients are asked to cash a counterfeit bank check that is included, and then wire money overseas to “test the process” as a Mystery Shopper. It carries a promise of earning a great deal of money.
Please know that this is a scam and is not affiliated with Synovate Global Opinion Panels. We will never ask you to cash checks, wire funds or purchase anything to participate in a study.
If you receive an e-mail or mailing that seems suspicious or fraudulent, please notify me immediately by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1-800-745-4267. If you receive this specific fraudulent mailing, we ask that you also contact your local authorities to alert them of this matter.
