Mystery Shopper Scams


From The Desk Of B. Robert

"There
are too many mystery shopping swindles that prey upon mystery
shoppers and those who wish to become secret shoppers.  These type
of disreputable businesses and people take advantage of the
unsuspecting.

Mystery Shopping Check
Scam 

There is a dangerous mystery shopping cashier’s check scam that continues to swindle and trick unsuspicious consumers, innocent mystery shoppers and credulous persons wishing to become an investigative evaluator.

A recipient receives a letter selecting them as a mystery shopper.

The letter includes a realistic cashier’s check for a few thousand dollars.


VERY IMPORTANT:
Be sure to investigate any type of such letter if you should receive one.

The swindle fools a consumer by instructing the recipient to cash or deposit a certain amount of the check and then send the balance to another person or company.

Unfortunately, the check is not legitimate and it bounces. This leaves the recipient responsible for the entire amount of the check.

The fraudulent companies use countless web addresses of reputable companies who actually do hire contractor mystery shoppers for legitimate shops.

It is this misrepresentation that assists in misleading the consumer who has received the fraudulent letter and check.

In other instances, a person may have answered a classified ad for “mystery shoppers”. They receive a reply letter that includes a cashier’s check advising them to cash the check and to perform a ‘secret shop’ rating a
money gram service.



CAVEAT:

Any letter you receive in the mail similar to the above mentioned, more than likely is
fraudulent. 

Consumers believe the letter to be a reply to the advertisement for mystery shoppers.

There usually will be a phone number listed on the reply letter or employment package that has a Canadian return address listed in Vancouver or other region.

Any phone number when called will usually answer with a recording saying, “The customer you are calling is currently unavailable.”

The fact that legitimate mystery shopper companies exist, does not mean that bogus mystery shopping companies are not present.

Fraudulent companies go to great lengths to swindle the unsuspecting consumer or mystery shopper applicant. 

Fraudulent companies send out very convincing information.

For example, one type of letter and reply employment package will include strict instructions concerning firm business conduct and ethics.

The letter states a similar declaration as; “It is the policy of this company to promote a high standard of integrity by conducting our affairs in an honest and ethical manner. The mismanagement of entrusted allocated funds for specific assignments will result in immediate termination of employment and appropriate legal action.” 

Many times such statement assertions will trick the naive believer. 

Victims usually answering an ad appearing in the classified ads can trick the unsuspecting applicant who seeks employment. 

They trust the advertisement because it is in the newspaper classifieds. 

In the case of this particular type scam, the newspaper classifieds department made repeated attempts to contact those who had placed the ad, via the Canadian phone number provided. 

Although they received a live response, the person whom they needed to speak was not available. 

It is not always possible for newspapers and various style publications to know when ads are legitimate. 

These type people and companies are difficult to effectively screen. 

Consumers and mystery shoppers should not complete any money gram transactions in such instances as a reply from a classified advertisement. 

It is very difficult to verify and confirm wire transfers sent.

The only requirement of the person on the receiving end is they present the appropriate password at the wire transfer. 

Wire transfers provide virtual anonymity.

That is the fraudster’s objective; to be able to commit a crime in a way that cannot be traced directly to them.”

You can find these and other stories by searching Google or other search engines for the terms.

(Canadian
Mystery Scams
)

Another prevalent scam is companies charging consumers to become a mystery shopper.

You may have paid someone to become a mystery shopper and then go to the site seeking a refund.

However, the fraudulent company misrepresented their affiliation or themselves as the legitimate mystery shopping company.

A victim was, erroneously, forward to the genuine URL website seeking a refund; however, the legitimate company is unable to refund any money to those who paid the fraudulent company a fee.

Naturally, the respectable company is very concerned that their business name is being used in disreputable scams.

Unfortunately, fraudulent companies of this type tend to disappear before anyone can find them and end their unscrupulous and illegal practices.

The reliable and legitimate company is in contact with police in various jurisdictions and provides all information obtained to capture the thieves.

If you are a victim of paying a company or individual to sign up for mystery shopping jobs, you can check your statement of payment for possible details on the company to whom you paid.

The company name and phone number is normally available on the statement.

There are too many mystery shopping ‘check cashing’ scams and other type swindles that prey upon mystery shoppers and those who wish to become secret shoppers.  These type of disreputable businesses and people take advantage of the unsuspecting.

There are other types of mystery shopping scams that I will discuss in later article blogs. Please continue to visit my blog and benefit from the information I hope that will assist you.

I am currently looking for shoppers for two different types of
accounts.

Platform Shops: This is a simple New Account Inquiry shop where you
go
into the bank and ask about opening a new account (however, you do
not
have to open an account). This is a very easy shop and only takes
approx
10 minutes to complete. Each platform shop pays $15 each!

Lobby Teller Shops: These are very simple shops that only take 1-2
minutes to complete! All you would need to do is go into the bank
and
make either a deposit, cash a check or make a withdrawal. However,
it
does require that you either have an account with our client or be
willing to open one. These are on-going shops. If you decide you
would
like to open an account to complete a shop, it will be worth it
because
you will be assigned this shop each month. (Also, if you happen to
already bank with the company we are shopping, it is like doing your
normal banking activity and getting paid for it!) Lobby teller shops
pay
$10 each.

If you are not interested, but know someone who may be, please let
me
know. I can contact them or you can give them our website, my email
and
phone number.

If you have any questions please e-mail michaela.sharp@pinnstrat.com
<mailto:michaela.sharp@pinnstrat.com> or call at 1-800-741-7758 ext.

IF INTERESTED: Please make sure that you are registered with us and
have
created your shopper profile at www.sassieshop.com/2proreview
<http://www.sassieshop.com/2proreview> and entered your application
for
the location(s) you are interested in. (If you cannot click on the
