I replied to a a Linked In job opportunity. Then I was emailed and mailed instructions for an assignment as a Mystery Shopper. I was given a check to cash or deposit for $2,360.30. That check ended up being fraudulent. As directed, I purchased EBAY giftcards and emailed photos of the fronts and backs of the cards, with the codes displayed. Then they wanted me to continue with the assignment to buy more cards. I figured I was scammed at that point. The money was taken immediately with the cards.
