TB Security Products Group

I received a leter from the above "Company" purported to be a valid offer for a secret shopper or shadow shopper job. I was directed to deposit said check in the amount of $1,989.75 in my account and then to wait at least 2 days before withdrawing funds in the amount of $1,639.75 for use in completion of the now suspect assignments. My first assignment was to transmit funds via Western Union to a named party in "Madrid, Spain" in the amount of $961.00 plus transaction fees of $68.00 and then complete part two of that assignment by sending $505.00 to a different named party in Atlanta, Georgia plus the transaction fee of $37.00 where upon the flags went up, in that using the "MoneyGram" as directed there MoneyGram voice confirmation advised if that if my funds were being sent due to a "Secret Shopper Assignment" I should not send them. I tried to call the TB Security Products Group via their number (260)570-4038 listed in their letter and was advised that due to the high call volume I should call back later. Quandry? The letter advised that performance time constraints were such that once I acknowledged that I would begin an assignment , I had 12-24 hours to complete same and to transmit via e-mail to"[email protected]" or via FAX to (260)570-4038 copies of my receipts along with my responses to their provided evaluation form. Second Red Flag variance in published transaction fee of $1.00 The fee was reported to be $37.00 while the actual fee when I attempted to do the assignment was $38.00 As the funds supposedly provided were purported to be such that I would not have to spend any additional funds out of my own pocket another "CAUTION" flag went up and I conferred with my spouse who then read the letter and viewed the copy of the check I had received and responded saying the option to proceed was in my hands but she also raised a red flag. Where upon I contacted Wester Union and advised them that I believed that I may be a victim of FRAUD and they then took steps to STOP the transaction I had initiated and have arranged to refund my funds. While making the report to their security agent via telephone to their operator in the Philippines, she helped me see multiple discrepancies in the correspondence and in their "FRAUDULENT CHECK" namely a varience in the company name TB Security Products Group not the TD Security Products Group cited in the letter along with the banking varience where the company is purported to be located in Angola, Indiana while their banking is via a Bank of America Office in Chicago, IL I would guess there are other similar scams and I must admit that I fell for another one and I am only able to tell you all about it with a smile because my spouse and the good lord raised all the red flags. Timing is everything and I'm very thankful that I will be able to put the "Fraudulent" funds back into my account so that I will not go into an overdraft situation. Hopefully my refund will be back in time to be deposited prior to the "Bounce" notification. If not I'll be back with more advce.
