Tuscola County Sheriff's Office warns of new scam involving "mystery shopper" in a "too good to be true" offer.

According to a notice from Postal Inspectors, shared via the Sheriff's Office, citizens have reported receiving offers to be "mystery" or "secret" shoppers for what appears to be a legitimate U.S. company.

In the mail, a person will receive a letter containing a check for, sometimes, thousands of dollars, and the company will ask for the check to be deposited. Supposedly, the check will then bounce and will leave victims of the scam with a holding.

If anyone has received a letter like this they are asked to not respond, but rather contact Postal Inspectors online or contact your local law enforcement.
