• Kroger Secret Shopper Scam

      KrogerValueStores.com (9 Complaints)

      They sent a check for nearly $2,000 and want me to deposit it in the bank, then take the money out to do the shopping and for my fee. I looked it up and found out on here that it's just another scam.

      How to tell this is a scam:

      1. Bad Watermark. One thing to note is that the "water mark" is so faded that it's almost invisible.

      2. Poor Logo Quality. The logos at the bottom of the page are so faded they're hard to read, and are more recognizable from the company logos.

      3. Location Sent From. Also, please take note that this letter was mailed from Madrid, Spain which is nowhere near the actual location of Kroger's headquarters. The corporate office of Kroger, which is where this would of had to of been mailed from to be legit, is at 1014 Vine St, Cincinnati, OH 45202. So nowhere close to where it was mailed from.

      4. Paper Quality. This paper is of the lowest quality you can put some ink on, and expect it to hold together. Corporations like to use nicer, thicker paper that's going to last. In part because if it needs to be filed away, you need that paper to stand the test of time, fewer issues relating to the paper holding ink, and it shows how well your company is put together. If your first impression of a company is, "Wow. This is some terrible paper.", then you probably aren't going to think much of the company in general. It's a first impression type of thing. Remember this when you send your Resume in.

      Complaint resolution: Make sure these scum bags don't hurt anybody else.
