"Beware of a current attempts to scam shoppers. There is currently a company sending out large advance cashiers checks. The shopper is told to send a MoneyGram or Western Union to a person, keeping part of the check for themselves. However, the check is not legitimate and bounces, leaving the shopper without any money to cover the MoneyGram.
Another scammer will ask you to do a mystery shop focused on a Wal-mart Moneygram outlet. They'd like you to cash the check they send you, keep $200, and transfer the rest to another agent. Same result - you'll be stuck for the entire amount.
