According to the report:
After the victim signed up for a “Secret Shopper” advertisement on the internet, he received a letter on April 2 from a Chad Vitiritto, 5658 NW 3rd Court, Des Moines, Iowa, who said he would be paid for evaluating businesses in the area. The two also emailed about the transaction.
The victim received two money gram money orders in the mail for $955.17 each. He was instructed to cash the money grams and deduct $200 for his fees and send the rest of the money to a Western Union address. His assignment was to evaluate Western Union’s service.
When the victim took the money gram money orders to the bank, the tellers there told him they were fraudulent.
The money orders, copies of the emails and UPS labels were placed into evidence at the Rome Police Department.
