AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo investigates Whole Foods mystery shopping, Nike gift cards and a fake check. He didn’t have to go far for this story because it showed up in his mailbox. While many people are struggling to pay their rent, mortgages and other bills, scammers are working to take your hard earned money. He received a letter with a Whole Foods watermark and a check for more than $2,900. All I would have to do is buy a bunch of Nike gift cards and then keep the rest as my payment. Beware of this scam! In this great video, watch for an interview with Rhonda Mettler from BBB’s Las Vegas office.
