Berea Police Report 11-9-2018

Scam Alert

Scam Alert: The Berea Police Department have taken several reports of people falling victim to a secret shopper scam at Walmart. The scam is advertised on Facebook where people can sign up for it. They are then sent a letter and a check. They are instructed to deposit the check at their bank, then withdraw cash. They are told to go to Walmart and purchase three blank money orders in different amounts. At some point they are provided an address where they are supposed to send the money orders. This is a scam. Please spread the word. No legitimate survey will ever ask you to cash a check and send them money.

There is an attached a copy of the letter below that contains the instructions so you can see what it looks like.
