LEHIGH ACRES, FL- A Lehigh Acres woman says she took a job opportunity only to find out, it was a scam.

Sonya Hereford says after searching months for a job unsuccessfully, she got a call from a woman named "Tanya" claiming to be with an employment company.
She offered her a position as a secret shopper.
Hereford received a package in the mail with a check for more than $2600.
She was told, her job was to shop at stores and then answer questions about their products and customer service.
She withdrew $2300, and then the bank called.

Victim Sonja Hereford says, "I said what happened and she said the check bounced, you owe us 2300 dollars.">

Now Hereford says she's stuck having to pay back that money to her bank.
