I was looking up other mystery shoppers programs when I applied for one through another company whom I cannot recall at this time.  I received a set of emails confirming my interest and address and then a check with my first assignment comes in. The check was from boeing credit union in seattle.  

The assignment was to deposit the check which posts but I'm anticipating will bounce based on what I've read.  You take that "money" you have and are sent to a walmart to review their money orders area. They ask you to review cleanliness if the machines are working and the staff.  It's all a front. Wal-Mart does not employ mystery shoppers. The scam gives extra incentive in the form of more money to be kept from the amount you are to spend if you get it done before noon and send it overnight.

You think you have the money and have made a hundred bucks but then the check bounces but the money you sent back is real!

I caught this after I had shipped the money orders and was able to stop the package from being delivered.  Police report filed, bank made aware.

Don't fall for this like I did!

"Mystery Shoppers," etc.

AUTHOR: John - (United States)

I swear this site will cease to exist when enough people figure out that no one is going to pay you for doing nothing so you might as well get out there and find a job, no one is going to call you out of the blue to offer you free money, the IRS isn't going to demand back taxes in the form of Green Dot cards, no one is going to rent you furniture, televisions and Xboxes at low interest rates to accomodate the fact that you have no money, there's no such thing as psychic powers or spell casting, Time Shares never work, and no one is going to care if you lost your job or your daughter got cancer and forgive your next Title Loan payment. 

In other words, this site will cease to exist when people just grow the f--k up and start using their brains.  "Mystery Shopper" sounds super-appealing to lazy dim bulbs who think they can make a living doing something fun.  Sorry, you can't.  GET A JOB.
