A scam story: Secret shopping and fake checks

Share this page

Scammers need a good story to get to your wallet. Once they find one that works, they use it again and again. One of their old favorites brings together fake checks and secret shopping, and we’ve been hearing a lot about it lately.

Here’s how it starts. You get a check in the mail with a job offer as a secret shopper. You deposit the check and see the funds in your account a few day s later, and the bank even tells you the check has cleared.

Now you’re off to the store you’ve been asked to shop at and report back on, often a Walmart. Your first assignment is to test the in-store money transfer service, like Western Union or MoneyGram, by sending some of the money you deposited. Or you might be told to use the money to buy reloadable cards or gift cards, such as iTunes cards. You’re instructed to send pictures of the cards or to give the numbers on the cards.

Fast forward days or weeks to the unhappy ending. The bank finds out the check you deposited is a fake, which means you’re on the hook for all that money. How does that even happen? Well, banks must make funds from deposited checks available within days, but uncovering a fake check can take weeks. By the time you try to get the money back from the money transfer service, the scammers are long gone, and they’ve taken all the money off the gift cards, too. (By the way, money orders and cashier’s checks can be faked, too.)

The moral of the story? If anyone ever asks you to deposit a check and then wire or send money in any way, you can bet it’s a scam. No matter what they tell you.

Wish Review – Legit Shopping App or Scam? [2020]

Some of the links in this post may be from our partners. We only work with companies we trust and recommend. Learn how we make money.

Don’t you wish things weren’t so expensive?

Come on…a phone for $800? Who can afford that? Wouldn’t you rather spend $30 on a phone?

Well, you’re in luck.

Wish is an app and website where you can find super cheap items for sale. (And yes, I mean cheap in both senses of the word.)

Wish has been popular for awhile now, and isn’t showing signs of slowing down any time soon. So, I decided to write up a review of Wish to help summarize the pros and cons of the app and investigate into whether this company is a scam or completely legitimate.

Wish Review – Everything You Should Know Before Using Wish

Let me start by saying this:

With Wish, you get what you pay for.

Found a nice winter coat for $7? Well, it will feel like a $7 coat.

For some people, this is perfectly fine and Wish is a no-brainer. But if you want quality products that will last you a long time, look elsewhere.

With that said, there are some products that are probably worth buying on Wish because quality doesn’t matter so much. Things like party decorations, certain accessories, and even light-use tools.

Wish Pricing – Don’t Believe the Hype

On most of the items for sale on Wish, you’ll see a slashed out price that’s supposed to indicate what that product normally costs.

But this number actually has no meaning. Sellers are allowed to put any number there.

Also, some of the items for sale are, believe it or not, more expensive than name-brand items you could find for sale somewhere else, like at Walmart. So before you buy anything from Wish, verify that you really are getting a good deal by comparing the price with prices for the same product on Amazon and other merchants.

Also be aware that some inexpensive items have expensive shipping – kinda defeating the purpose. Make sure you check the total price before checking out!

Shipping Times – You Might be Waiting a While

One of the biggest complaints about Wish is that it takes forever for the products you ordered to arrive.

Some people have had to wait months. Sometimes the product never even makes it to you. I guess this is another of the many trade-offs for getting such good deals on certain products.

That said, some products are marked express shipping and these typically get delivered within a week, sometimes quicker. So if you need something soon, make sure it’s marked express shipping. Otherwise you could be waiting for quite some time.

Is Wish Legit? – Is it Safe to Shop on Wish?

There seem to be some mixed opinions as to whether Wish is legit or a scam.

It’s legit if you get what you ordered and don’t have to worry about any kind of fraud.

It’s a scam if you ordered something and it never arrived, and you can’t get your money back. Something many people have had problems with.

But this generally has more to do with the sellers, not so much with Wish itself. Certain sellers may be shady, others completely legit. Sellers have feedback and ratings for good reason.

So, my best advice would be to use Wish wisely. Only buy items from reputable sellers, and understand that there are always risks to shopping online – no matter from what website or app.

Wish Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Inexpensive products
  • Fun and addictive (I guess that’s a pro. )

Cons:

  • Most products are low quality
  • Slow shipping times
  • Shipping costs can be astronomical
  • Sometimes products are never even delivered
  • Some people are having their refund requests refused
  • The free refund or replacement policy lasts 30 days – often expiring before the product even arrives
  • Products may not always be as pictured
  • Slow and unhelpful customer support

Wish User Reviews – Here’s What People are Saying

At some point it became popular for YouTubers to share their thoughts on Wish, and share their “Wish Hauls”.

After watching several of these, you’ll have a good idea about the quality of products Wish sells and know whether it’s worth using or not.

This first one by Good Mythical Morning shows Rhett and Link guessing whether certain products are name-brand or knockoffs from Wish:

And here are a few more videos with YouTubers reviewing some products they bought:

And there are plenty more you can watch if you’d like. Basically, the sentiment is the same – the quality is terrible, but now and then a product will really surprise you.

Conclusion – Is Wish Worth Using?

I would say it’s at least worth giving Wish a try. Maybe spend just a couple bucks, or whatever amount you can afford to lose. If you’re satisfied, by all means use it to your heart’s content.

Just keep in mind the negative aspects (like all the cons listed above) and don’t set your expectations too high.

You may be delighted with Wish, or you may get burned.

It’s your choice, but I hope this review at least helped to make it a more informed choice.

Letsbuy.com a bigger online shopping scam

Guys don’t ever purchase anything from Letsbuy. It is scam and fraud website. They cheat with the customer. I have personally experienced and I will never ever refer anyone to purchase anything from Letsbuy. I placed order for this laptop on march 28th and got it on April 12th. It took 15 days to receive the laptop as the delay was from Letsbuy. And they did not even send the free gifts which they offered on the website and when I called them they said there were no offer when I placed the order. Such a cheater they are. I can’t even fight with those bogus people. Customer service people are third class. Don’t know how to speak with the customer. Don’t have customer handling skill. Purchase on your own risk. GOD BLESS YOU GUYS. Letsbuy you could never survive for very long with this kind of cheating.:zx11pissed:

Re: Letsbuy.com a bigger online shopping scam

I dunno! Personally, I like data. You can trust data, facts, figures, evidence. Why don’t people ever backup their emotionally charged claims by actually posting in facts and figures?

I’d really like to understand how consumers can protect themselves against scammers, but just because a company provides bad customer service doesn’t mean that they ought to be shot down in flames.

MyWot seems to report that Letsbuy.com have a good level of trust. (Depends on whether you trust MyWot to make this kind of judgement however.)

How about the other services that Letsbuy are possibly related to?

mtsindia.in also has a reasonably good rating in MyWot despite one person saying they’re shockers.

http://moneyduniya.com/ looks like its related to LetsBuy by virtue of using same registrant phone number, google apps and affiliate provider. No mention of them in MyWot. Site is poorly presented, so odd that such a massive site as LetsBuy has a poor cousin like moneyduniya.

It’s highly likely that http://www.benefitsplus.in/ is also related to LetsBuy, by virtue of affiliate links, phone number and a few other ‘fingerprints’. Much better looking site! But again no score in MyWot to gauge customer service.

It would be interesting to somehow gauge overall sentiment of language used in the Facebook, Twitter and G+ channels in order to really sort out whether an online store offers such awful service as promoted by timchriss of Bangalore.
