Beware of Fraudulent Offers of Quick Returns for Cashing Bank Cheques
Members of the public have been defrauded in connection with fake schemes offering payment to people in connection with a ‘mystery shopping project’ or ‘quality assurance project’.
If anybody claiming to be a representative of TNS ever contacts you with an offer promising funds for cashing a bank cheque, or with an offer to send money to TNS, please immediately call TNS.
TNS rarely, if ever, conducts mystery shopping or quality assurance projects that involve cashing checks or sending money electronically.
