Beware of Kroger Secret Shopper Phishing Email Scams

2017-06-16T00:19:18 -  +
Beware of Kroger Secret Shopper Phishing Email Scams

Online users, be aware of Kroger secret or mystery shopper email messages like the one below, which claim that the recipients have mystery or secret shopping assignments in their areas and are asked to participate. The email messages are fraudulent, therefore, recipients of the same email messages should not respond to them with their personal information or any other information that is requested by the senders. The fake email messages are being sent by scammers/cybercriminals.

Please continue reading below.

The victim of this scam will be provided with a fake or counterfeit check (cheque) and is advised to cash it and then asked to use some of the proceeds to do some form of mystery shopping. Also, the victim may be asked to take part in surveys or other promotional services. But, the counterfeit check will bounce and the victim who cashes the check will be held responsible for the money lost in the transaction and any additional fees imposed by his or her bank. They may even get arrested for fraud.

Remember, never send your personal information to anyone in an email message or send money to someone who contacted you via unsolicited email messages.

    My husband and I received in separate mailing envelopes (USPS) letters asking us to participate in an assignment for Kroger Secret Shopper. They sent both of us in our envelopes cashier checks in the amount of $2650.00 each. The letter tells us how to use the money and some of it we can keep ($400). Then after we do everything, we are to send money orders back to them. We were to send them a blank, intact with stub and NOTHING written on them in the amount of $2049.00 each.

    Not exactly sure how this is supposed to work but, I know it's a scam. Send to officebradcoleman@gmail.com. Phone # (917)773-0442 or (646)828-9740 or (424)393-2057. The cashier's check is from German American Banking PO Box 810, Jasper IN 47547. Bottom of the check is: RE: Patrick Blatter.

      I just got the very same one from the same guy. I just felt something wasn't right after reading the letter. I asked for a return address to send the check back to them. Never heard from them. I wrote "VOID" across the check and no need to decide what to do with it. Are police interested in it?

    Received a text message from a Fred Blatter wanting me to reply back to him to confirm my interest in Kroger Secret Shopper Program.

    Despite the fact that I never replied back, the very next day I received a priority mail envelope with a cashier's check from Suncoast Credit Union for 2650.00 written out to me and referencing Fred Blatter.

    There is also a letter included which details the steps in cashing the check. I'm shredding all of it and not getting involved.

    Received an email about being a Kroger Secret Shopper. I shop at Kroger's every week so I thought it was good but found out this is a "scam". After filling out some information in the email, I received a text from Robert Lehman on 2-5-18 stating my application had been accepted and for me to confirm receipt of his text.

    I texted Robert to confirm receipt of his text. The next day I receive a priority mail envelope with a check for $2,330 and instructions to deposit check IN my bank and sent a text stating "FUNDS DEPOSITED WITH DEPOSIT RECEIPT" and they would release the funds. BIG RED FLAG: never give anyone your bank receipt. I called the Attorney General's office to discuss this and was told they would wipe out my bank account and for me to file a complaint which I did.

    ATTN: ,

    You recently submitted your information to one of our recruitment agency to work as a Kroger secret shopper.Your details has been verified and you are shortlisted as one of our representatives.

    I will like to congratulate you as a member of our working team. As a secret shopper you are responsible for gathering information, giving ideas, and improving brand standards of products and services. You have been selected to conduct an all expenses paid survey and evaluation in your area. As our secret shopper posing as a normal customer, you are expected to perform specific tasks such as purchasing a product or using a service. While there, you will secretly evaluate things like customer

    Some of the simple questions in your shopper's report will be:

    • Was the merchandise displayed neatly?
    • Would you return to this store / restaurant?
    • Was it easy to use the service?

    That's all there is to it! The answers to these kinds of questions are extremely valuable to any business - and they are willing to pay top dollar to find out what consumers really think. You will be providing important information that will be used to improve the quality of businesses everywhere.

    Where will I be mystery shopping?

    The companies we deal with mostly represent large chain stores and popular franchises with hundreds and thousands of locations across the United States.

    They are stores, services and restaurants like:
    • CVS
    • WAL-MART

    Hello Shopper ,

    Your first assignment is here.

    Firstly , have you ever purchased a gift card or shop with a gift card ? If not , here is an opportunity for you to explore stores with the use of gift card .

    Gift cards is a prepaid stored-value money card usually issued by a retailer.It has become increasingly popular as they relieve the donor of selecting a specific gift and recently been used as a comfortable means of shopping both online and at stores within the states .

    Many cards have no value until they are sold, at which time the cashier enters the amount which the customer wishes to put on the card. This amount is rarely stored on the card but is instead noted in the store's database, which is crosslinked to the card ID .

    Your first assignment is to evaluate stores where gift cards can be purchased . Your survey packet will come with an instruction of how to go about your assignment .

    Your details have been stored in our database as follow :

    You have 48hours to get back if there is any error in your details .

    We are sure you'll have fun while evaluating these stores and earn $400 weekly. We hope you are able to help us get information on how Gift cards are been purchased and how comfortable it is for shopping .

    Received via email:

    "Received this today. Seems fishy to me. When it seems too good to be true, it usually is.

    I was going to sign up but noticed the http address didn't have Kroger in it at all.

    Bad people have nothing better to do. Shame on them.

    I received a similar email as that to the OP. The link to press was:
    hxxp://gncargokenya.com/public/.

    Virustotal gave this a score of 0/66 threats found: completely clear and GN Cargo Kenya looks like a legit company, but Kroger just don't operate here in the UK.
    Amazing how scams can be hidden these days.

    So, if you want a job with Kroger as a secret shopper - approach them!

    This is definitely a phishing email. I've scanned the link on virus total and there's a detection from emsisoft as phishing.
