Secret Shopper Scam

OPP are warning area residents about a secret shopper scam. A local victim was the successful candidate for a secret shopper position and was forwarded a fraudulent cheque.  They were told they were investigating Western Union security procedures by choosing two friends to receive money transfers in the US. The victim transferred 2 thousand dollars and was later told two men claiming to be friends picked up the money.  Police are reminding the public if it sounds to good to be true it probably is.
