I opened up my school email to see what I needed for registration and two emails were waiting for me stating they were from the Job Placement and Student Services office at the University of Iowa and could vouch for the job. I’m always hesitant with these jobs since my mother was scammed the same way and checked their site through which told me the site was created only days prior. Super fishy and rang a lot of alarm bells. After checking with the and other accounts from victims, I was able to avoid recklessly applying and potentially losing a lot of money, even though as a broke college student, the offer sounded extremely tempting. Always double check job offers you get through email, especially if it’s not from a job services site like Indeed.

My name is *** *** and I am the *** *** *** *** *** *** *** ** *** *** *** *** *** which is part of the ** *** ** *** *** *** ***. Last week we were notified about being responsible for scamming college students in New Jersey out of money. This is a phishing scam which involves students receiving a check from a bogus company identifying themselves as Consumer Insight with a check for $1,875. They recipients (students) are advised that $375 is theirs to keep and the remaining $1,500 is to be used to purchase (3) $500 gift cards at Walmart under the pretense that they are evaluating the various Walmart Stores. Upon purchasing three $500 gift cards they are advised to forward photos including the redemption code to the scammers. These cards can then be used by the scanners and eventually the check is returned as bogus.

The website I am reporting is which is impersonating which is a legitimate mystery shopping site.

Additionally, Rebecca Lorah, [email protected], also has another domain which she may be planning the same type of scam with the legitimate site Thank you for your attention to this matter.
