Got a scam mystery shopping letter--is it worth reporting and to who?

I got one of those great letters today about how I can make $400 to $900 dollars a week. I just have to deposit the check they sent for $2500 to get started. LOLOLOL Has anyone tried to report these scams letters? If so, who would I contact? Does it do any good? Thanks for the info. It was from THESOURCE Marketing and the return address was Robles Inc in New York.

I just my letter today Mine was for $3950. The letter was postmarked from New York, but the company is supposedly in New York. I am not sure if it does any good to report them. If any one thinks differently and knows where to report it, I would be happy to do so.
If it came in the mail it's mail fraud and can be reported to your local Postmaster General.
My police department wants scams reported to them. I don't know what they do with them, but notice in my newspaper that want others to be notified.
If they are using a MSC name report this to them, they do want to know.
Here's the information we give out when shoppers report scams to us:
• Contact your local (non-emergency) number for the police.
• Report to the FTC at 877-382-4357 or www.ftc.gov
• File a complaint with the Internet Fraud Complaint Center www.ic3.gov
• If you are in Canada, report to the Canadian PhoneBusters at 888-495-8501.

The grammar and spelling are atrocious. That is always the first clue.
