Type of a scam Employment
I saw a listing on LinkedIn for a Secret Shopper to make extra cash. I e mailed the person as requested with name/e mail, cell, DOB, age, and address and received an e mail back asking for a letter to confirm that I am interested. I received text after text asking if I accomplished my first assignment. I had in the mean time done some research and found a similar SCAM where the person was asked to deposit a check and go to Walmart and transfer funds to an account. I hesitated because this is what I received in the mail as my assignment. E mails were not replied to, and they finally stopped texting me when I replied STOP! Yesterday I received the letter back from the address they told me to send it to. Please see below:
PACKET FOR YOUR SHOPPING ASSIGNMENT WILL BE DELIVERED IN YOUR MAIL BOX
We received your information in good time and will like to congratulate you as a member of our working team. As a mystery shopper your responsibility is to gather information, giving ideas, and improving brand standards of products and services. You have been selected to conduct an all expenses paid survey and evaluation in your area. As our mystery shopper posing as a normal customer, you are expected to perform specific tasks such as purchasing a product or using a service. While there, you will secretly evaluate things like customer service, store cleanliness and quality of service rendered. You would have to keep a comprehensive report on every activity you carry out.
Some of the simple questions in your shopper’s report will be:
• Were the employees friendly and courteous?
• Did you receive prompt service?
• Was the merchandise displayed neatly?
• Would you return to this store / restaurant?
• Was it easy to use the service?
That’s all that is to it! The answers to these kinds of questions are extremely valuable to any business and they are willing to pay top dollar to find out what consumers really think. You will be providing important information that will be used to improve the quality of businesses everywhere.
Where will I be mystery shopping?
The companies we deal with mostly represent large chain stores and popular franchises with hundreds and thousands of locations across the United States.
They are stores, services and restaurants like:
