HS Brands is an international company with offices around the world. They are a legitimate company that offers mystery shopping opportunities and discounted items/products on their website. However, someone/some organiztion is providing a fake email that asks if you would like to become a mystery shopper and asks for your personal information (your address and email are their targets. They say that once you sign up they will send you a check for the job ALONG with your assignment (Walmart, for example). They tell you to cash the chedck and then do the job. Icalled my police department to inform them of the scam and they of course already knew all about it. Don’t sign up and don’t cash that check!!! Whereever you cash the check will be defrauded and come after you for their money. As stated before, the company is legitimate; the email is what’s fradulent. The address given for the company is: 250 E. 5th St., floor 9 Cincinnati, Ohio 45202 If you get one of these emails and give them your information you will undoubtedly get mail from them with the assifgnment and check. Keep it all:BUT DO NOT CASH THE CHECK!!! If it is sent by USPS, return it to them with an explaination as to why you have brfought the check in. They can track where it came from and pursue thye matter from there. If it comes UPS, Fed Ex, or DHL they can track the return address also. BUT, do not look for much to be done. These scams abound, and these companies have scores of these types of scam reports coming across their desks. SO BE CAREFUL, AND DO NOT CASH THAT CHECK!!! .
