As this time of year rolls around, it seems phone and mail scams are more prevalent. I received one today in the mail by rapid-Profile Inc. to do mystery shopping. They sent a $1,989.43 check and had instructions to register online with my special id they provided on an enclosed letter, and deposit the check into my bank account. Then they would give me instructions on the places I should go to purchase items and mystery shop, and I would be allowed to KEEP everything I bought. I tried to search on-line for info about them, because it seemed weird to me and I had a gut feeling. (Always go with the gut) Turns out, this "business" is a scam, and they keep changing their name and you can't verify their address. There are lots of complaints about them, but no one can track them down because they keep changing their name and address. So please mylotters... beware! I just wanted to spread the news, because all of us are looking to make a few extra bucks here and there. And at first, I thought it would be a great way to do so. Ha! Think again!

This is a welcome update on the rampant of business scam. With this info of yours, we are aware and updated as to what company is identified here. Actually, we could easily determine that an internet business promo is a scam by the impossibility of its plan and benefits to attain. With that, we should be aware. Nevertheless, we still take to risk in joining with them.
