PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST MYSTERY SHOPPER (SHOPPING) SCAMS

Todays News………………..

You should be knowledgeable in Mystery Shopping Scams. There are companies who will promise interested persons ‘Shops’ including ‘assignments and audits that pay $75 plus.

B. Robert Mystery Shopper Sleuth

 

There are Focus Groups and Survey Companies that actually do offer very high pay such as the amount noted above. However, more ‘Shops’ pay closer to $25 or less!

Naturally, there are certain types of ‘Shops’ that pay more than others!

Additionally, rush ‘immediate’ assignments will very often include Bonus Pay!

If you are willing to complete ‘Shops’ with very little notice (usually a day), you can receive $10 to $15 plus more Bonus Pay to the already agreed upon payment. Also, you still will receive you reimbursements.

It is not uncommon for many Mystery Shoppers to actually sign up for the ‘immediately required shops’ to receive the higher Bonus Pay.

If you earn $30 to $40 or more and do 2 or 3 shops per day a few days a week, you are earning $90 to $120 per day plus reimbursements for purchases made..

In an example of grocery shopping. If you purchase an item you will use, you get paid to ‘Shop’ and you actually receive reimbursement for the item you purchased.

You will have to search out the ‘Shops’ that require immediately completing your assignment to earn the extra Bonus Pay!

A Note on my BLOG for Mystery Shoppers who want to learn more about Mystery Shopping and the tricks to earning money and free gifts.

As a Mystery Shopper you will learn it is easy, if you have the right information!I plan on providing information as often as possible with the shops and companies who are hiring people for shops!

I do offer a few eBooks, where you’ll not only learn the insider secrets to receiving FREE merchandise and services, but you’ll discover little known money making sources that save (and earn) you hundreds of dollars!

I only offer the ebooks if you would like to learn more.

It is not necessary that you purchased my offer!I still will be providing the information and resources that you can embark upon without purchasing my ebooks and bonuses offering.

For that reason, you should stop by often and make sure to read the latest of information and resources that I will be documenting for your knowledge and follow-through.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You can find out more about Focus Groups and Survey Companies simply by searching on the Internet.

 

You will have to read and check out the company and groups that you plan to work with.

 

You can find a great deal of information about those offering the shops, audits or assignments by frequenting the forums and joining the different newsletters available.

 

The important concept to be concerned with, regards the ‘up front fees’.

You can become a member with many companies offering Mystery Shopper assignments for no cost!

There could be a company that provides you with the assignments and job, however, if they are asking for setup fees, or membership fees, you can most likely go directly to the company without any third party fees.

 

On the other hand, if you want to learn more information regarding the companies who are offering ‘Shops’, and how it works, including details, techniques, tips and tricks for the Mystery Shopper; then you should purchase a few of the eBooks or Books sold on the Market that will provide you with the knowledge you seek. The cost for any of the ebooks or material are not very expensive.

If you are not an experienced or certified Mystery Shopper, I would advise you to purchase more information that will guide and teach you the ‘ins’ and the ‘outs’ of Mystery Shopping!

 

Having a basic background and foundation on which to determine specifics about certain companies, payments, types of shops and more is essential information if you intend to perform Mystery Shopping assignments.

It will be very important that you read a few different ebooks/books as different authors or experienced Mystery Shoppers review and provide their own side to accepting and completing these type jobs.

 

I can personally speak for the reason I have been familiar with Mystery Shopping companies, Focus Groups, Survey Companies and the type assignments performed since 2000.

 

I have seen some companies go out of business and some companies stay. I have also seen some companies be purchased by other larger companies.

When I first became aware of Mystery Shopping, I was skeptical.

Nonetheless, I proceeded in searching out as much about Mystery Shoppers as I could obtain.

It was a very interesting journey through the fraudulent and the honorable companies.

I set a policy in stone for myself, to never pay money, (except for certifications, manuals, ebooks, information and content with substance), to any company requiring payment from me to provide me with a listing of ‘Mystery Shopping Companies’!

Additionally, I joined the many groups and forums available for Mystery Shoppers.

Currently, I receive the listings of job assignments daily, weekly and monthly. This way I am always on top of the ‘Shops’ I like the best.

Most of the time they are the ‘Rush’ type ‘shops’.

Naturally, I follow-up on these for the reason of the Bonus Pay I noted above.

I also do partake in the Focus Groups that do pay $75 to $125, retirement communities and apartment type ‘Shops’. These all pay much higher to complete. Especially, if they include any bonuses…
