Aug 19, 2015 by Confero Inc.

Confero was provided information today on a LinkedIn scam regarding someone using the name of Will, who claims to work for Confero.  The fraudster’s email was sent through LinkedIn.  It was sent from the email address of .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). net.  The person falsely claims to be an employee of Confero, and asks the recipient of the email to provide their name, address, cell phone number and email for a secret shopping assignment.

We have no employee or contractor named WILL.   Do not fall for this scam and please do not send him any of your information.

This person is trying to scam people.  These scams almost always result in consumers becoming duped into a fake check scam. In fake check scams, shoppers are sent checks to deposit, then told to wire most of the funds elsewhere and keep the difference. Ultimately, the check the scammer sent the shopper turns out to be worthless and the shopper is on the hook to cover the entire check with the bank. Some of the checks look quite real - so real in fact that bank tellers see them all the time. BE CAREFUL!  

 

And, just so you know: 

1.       The only jobs posted on LinkedIn for Confero are for positions at our Cary, NC headquarters. Our schedulers do not use LinkedIn to inform people of mystery shopping assignments.

2.       Emails from Confero employees will come from conferoinc.com, not conferoinc.net.   

3.       Confero NEVER issues checks to shoppers for any reason. Our payments to shoppers are sent via PayPal or Direct Deposit.  

 

We thank the person who brought this to our attention, so that we were able to warn others of this scam.  If you would like to read more about scams, please visit our website: http://www.conferoinc.com/shoppers-center/consumer-alerts/
