FYI: Attention Jancyn Shoppers - SCAM ALERT

Attention Jancyn Shoppers - SCAM ALERT

We have been alerted that there is a scam currently running that is using Jancyn's company name and emailing shoppers offering a large sum of money to be deposited into your bank, to be used to purchase several iPhones and keep the remaining balance.

The scam works like this: You are sent a bad check. You deposit it, you make the purchases, and then are instructed to mail the merchandise to the scammer. Then, the check you have deposited bounces. Similar scams have been noted in which you are sent a bad check and asked to wire a lesser amount via Western Union, and keep the balance.

Please do NOT deposit any check purporting to be from Jancyn. Jancyn only pays shoppers via PayPal, and payments are sent 5-6 weeks after a successful shop is completed. Our forms are never sent as a Word document email attachment, and our email communications always come from either or We do not ever send assignments via snail mail.

If you receive any suspicious offers claiming to be from Jancyn, please forward any information to
