Cross County authorities are asking residents to be careful, especially if they receive a check from someone asking them to be a secret shopper. 

According to a post on the Cross County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, checks ranging from $1,500 to $2,000 are being sent to local addresses asking people to take part. 

"The letter attached with the check tells you it is payment for you being a secret shopper," Sheriff J.R. Smith said in the post. "The letter also asks you to cash the check and send a portion to 'other' secret shoppers via a money gram. These checks are no good and should be destroyed." 

Anyone who has received a check like that should contact Cross County authorities.
