ARLINGTON, Va. —  The Better Business Bureau says to be wary of a secret shopper scam.

Recently, scammers have taken to Craigslist and other websites posting a job for “The Home Depot Survey.”

Alleged managers send a packet of information and a fake check for $300 dollars.

A note in the packet instructs the “secret shopper” to deposit the check and wire money back.
