Two Collusion County residents scammed out of $2,000

VOLUSIA COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Two Volusia County residents are out of $2,000 after a mystery shopper scammed them. Both victims responded to Internet ads to be mystery shoppers.

They were sent checks to deposit with instructions to buy items and told to put money on "Green Dot" prepaid cards.

After both victims did their first secret shopping job, they found that the money on the "Green Dot" cards had already been spent and the original checks they received were fake.
