Hello, I recieved this letter wanting me to be a mystery shopper and I was given a check for 4,335 to go and deposit in my bank account and then given the instructions to wait two days and then go back to my bank and withdraw the funds back out and take 300.00 for myself, and go to western union and send them back 3,740 and then the second assignment was to go to walmart and be a mystery shopper and purchase 95.00 worth of merchandise which was mine to keep, I knew I was going to be ripped off in the first place, cause noone is going to pay you to shop! I mean get for real, This country is in a recession, And I dont think there is anyone thats gonna give you anything for free! This company needs to be caughtand punished to the full extent of the law, I was smart enough not to do it, But there are people out here that doesnt have food to feed their kids that would have fallen for it!

Get a life MCR! Stop scamming us! We are not stupid like you think!

Real mystery shopping doesn't work like this!

AUTHOR: Cheri - (U.S.A.)

There are real mystery shopping companies, and they do not operate in this way.  My friend has been mystery shopping for many years now (over 5 years) and she had to work her way up to being able to do the better places. Most mystery shopping outfits start new employees off on small assignments, such as McDonalds or another fast food place. They give you the time frame you must go in, as well as a whole checklist of details you have to look for (The job requires you be very observant and do alot of writing/reporting and order specific items off the menu). You always buy the items up front with your own money and make copies of your receipt to send to them.. it's a slow process to get paid back for the food and you earn VERY little money off doing these, even full time like my friend does - she takes every opportunity she can to do them and she still doesn't make enough money to live off of it - definately not a big income opportunity as some make it out to be.

Once you get into a legitimate secret shopper place, remember it may take YEARS before they trust you enough to secret shop any larger places and have the opportunity to make a "bit more money". I personally think from all of the work she puts into it and what she makes on the pay off, it's seriously not worth the time!

If it sounds too good to be true, it really is!
