On December 18, 2018 a township resident reported to the township police that she had been in contact with an unknown person or persons purporting to be representatives of Secret Shopper. The resident advised that she was asked to complete an application to include her name, address and date of birth. The victim received additional communications through phone and email and eventually received a money order through the postal service. She was instructed to deposit the check into her bank account and to immediately withdraw cash for the purposes of purchasing gift cards. Before withdrawing any funds the victim became suspicious and discovered that the check was fraudulent.
