PIPERSVILLE, Pa. -

A Bucks County man thought he had landed a job as a "secret shopper."

It turns out that he was really being victimized as part of an online scam.

State Police say a 56-year-old Pipersville man was contacted by email to work as a "secret shopper."

The man was sent fraudulent money orders that he cashed. He then sent money through a money service company to the scam artists, police said.
