The above-named bank has reported that counterfeit cashier’s checks using the bank’s correct routing number of 071108290 are being presented for payment nationwide in connection with an online secret survey analyst/store evaluator employment opportunity scam.

The counterfeit checks resemble the bank’s authentic items but may be identified by the following traits:

  • The checks are gray with a blue border and contain the following security statement in the top border: “WARNING: THIS DOCUMENT HAS SECURITY FEATURES IN THE PAPER.”
  • Checks presented to date have been made payable in amounts ranging from $1,714 to $4,850.

    Potential victims of this survey scam have received correspondence accompanying the check from Brian George, Co-Ordinator LIVE SHOPPER LLC. Contact information includes an email address of [brian.george@job4u.com], telephone numbers of (650) 300-2603, (650) 314-9093, and (650) 300-7721 as well as a mailing address of Shoppers’ View, 2905 Lucerne Drive, 102D N. Street, Sacramento, CA 94273. The correspondence instructs the potential victims to confirm receipt of the material by sending a text message to one of the telephone numbers provided. The recipient is further instructed to deposit the funds at his or her financial institution and then send a text message to one of the telephone numbers to confirm that this step is complete, under the guise that the sender will “authorize the issuing bank to release the funds into [the] account within 24 hours.” The letter informs the recipient to retain $320 as payment for the assignment and to use the remaining funds for the assignment. The letter does not specify the details of the assignment but rather indicates that instructions will be provided following receipt of a text confirmation of the availability of funds. Victims of this scam have reported that the assignment includes conducting wire transfers to the perpetrators at a well-known retail store for the purported purpose of the victim’s surveying the services of the money transfer center located within the retail store.
