Secret Shopper Scam Shortchanges Boca Man

secretBOCA RATON, FL ( — A Boca Raton man may think twice before applying for any job that has the word “secret” in its title — short of a position with the Secret Service.

Police tell us that Ronald Andring applied for a job online with the title “Secret Shopper.” The job, according to his report to police, required him to “cash money orders and wire the money to other employees of the company.”

Wait for it. Wait for it. Wait for it…

Turns out Ronald ended up owing the banks involved $3,323.64 once the banks figured out that the money orders were bogus.

No suspects at this point, but the investigation continues.
