Secret Shopper Ad On WBEV Under Investigation

7/16/11 – The Beaver Dam Police Department is warning people of a possible scam involving an advertisement that ran on WBEV and WXRO recently. Station Manager John Moser says he received a call Friday from a listener who had responded to an advertisement for mystery shoppers. The listener says she received a check in the mail from the advertiser with a note asking her to send back her own money to enroll in the program. The woman found the offer suspicious and contacted the station who in turn alerted the police department, who is investigating. While the validity of the advertisement and employment opportunity are being investigated, police are asking that you refrain from replying to the ad. Anyone with information or concerns is asked to contact their local law enforcement agency.
