Dear Shopper,

Mystery shopping or a mystery consumer is a tool used externally by market research companies or watchdog organizations or internally by companies themselves to measure quality of service or compliance to regulation, or to gather specific information about products and services. The mystery consumer’s specific identity is generally not known by the establishment being evaluated. Mystery Shopping is a great way to start making money online or from home. Mystery shoppers or secret shoppers are hired to pose as customers and to anonymously evaluate the service they receive from a given business or an organization.

Mystery shoppers normally get paid between $200 per assignment. They are expected to complete their mystery shopping assignment and fill out an evaluation form, answering questions about their shopping experience in the establishment, the quality of customer service, etc. To start earning money immediately, reply this email with the following information below to sign up:

Personal Information:

FULL NAME: (As Should Appear on Payment )
STREET ADDRESS:(Not PO BOX)
CITY:
STATE:
ZIP/POSTAL CODE:
PHONE NUMBER CELL AND HOME:
EMAIL:
AGE:
SEX:
OCCUPATION:
YOUR PREFERRED MODE OF COMMUNICATION EITHER BY PHONE OR BY EMAIL:

As a “Detective Shopper” you will work and shop together for pleasure and you only work 2-3 hours twice in a week.

We are waiting your good response, Thank you.

Mystery (Secret) Shopper Scam & How It Works

There’s been an increase in employment scams pertaining to mystery/secret shopper positions, according to the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). The reason the secret shopper scam is so believable is because many retail and service corporations do hire evaluators to perform secret or random checks on their competitors. Scammers know this and capitalize on the opportunity.

mystery_secret_shopper_scam

Victims have reported to the IC3 they were contacted via e-mail and U.S. mail to apply to be a mystery shopper. Applicants send a resume and are told that they will be subject to an extensive background check before being accepted as a mystery shopper. The employees are sent a check with instructions to shop at a specified retailer for a specific length of time and spend a specific amount on merchandise from the store. The employees receive instructions to take note of the store’s environment, color, payment procedures, gift items, and shopping/carrier bags and report back to the employer. The second evaluation is the ease and accuracy of wiring money from the retail location. The money to be wired is also included in the check sent to the employee. The remaining balance is the employee’s payment for the completion of the assignment. After merchandise is purchased and money is wired, the employees are advised by the bank the check cashed was counterfeit, and they are responsible for the money lost in addition to bank fees incurred.

In other versions of the scheme, applicants are requested to provide bank account information to have money directly deposited into their accounts. The criminal then has acquired access to these victims’ accounts and can withdraw money, which makes the applicant a victim of identity theft.
