Mystery Shopper Scam Alert!
It has come to our attention that a person falsely claiming to work with SkilCheck, Inc. has recently circulated unsolicited and misleading messages via the mail and or/internet. These fraudulent letters, which attempt to appear legitimate by claiming an association with SkilCheck, offer payment for assisting in the transfer of funds via a blank money order.
The following names (or aliases) have no affiliation with our company:
Martin J. McNamee, Los Angeles, California
Lucy Bryan of Piedmont, Alabama
Please be advised that any messages from any person asking for assistance in the transfer of funds on behalf of SkilCheck should be ignored. All communications from SkilCheck, Inc. will originate from a verifiable SkilCheck.com email address, and not from internet-based email accounts, such as Hotmail, Gmail, Outlook or Yahoo. And we NEVER send money orders to our shoppers.
In this regard, we would appreciate it if you could pay careful attention to suspicious or false messages claiming to be sent on our behalf.
How to protect yourself:
• Do not respond to unsolicited business propositions and/or job offers from people or e-mail addresses you do not know and trust.
• Do not disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know or trust or on a website you do not trust. Should you have disclosed this information to somebody you do not know or trust or to a website you do not trust, consider reporting the incident to your local law enforcement.
• Be on the lookout for suspicious signs – e.g. check for misspelled words, persons based outside the United States, communications from non-SkilCheck e-mail addresses (e.g. from a Hotmail.com address); requests for money, or assistance in transferring money.
Please contact us directly for advice with respect to unusual or suspicious cases, or cases where it appears that a genuine SkilCheck, Inc. email address is used so that we may verify the legitimacy of the contact you have received.
