I am filing this report to warn others of the dangers surrounding signing up to be a mystery shopper for Emysteryshop Evaluation, Inc.

I received an email from offering a job for the position of Mystery Shopper officer. There didn't seem to be any harm in signing up for this position - all it asked for was my name, address, phone number, year of birth and gender. All I was trying to do was supplement my income, so I submitted my information.

Shortly thereafter I received an email letting me know that I was accepted as a Mystery Shopper and that I would be evaluating a Walmart and Money Gram outlet in my city. The instructions said that I would receive a check via Federal Express in the amount of $2459.42 that would be used to carry out the assignment. I was to deposit the check in my account, and within 24 hours go to Walmart to purchase $100 worth of goods and go to Money Gram to transfer funds to Emysteryshop. The balance of the funds ($200 + transportation costs) were my payment for carrying out the assignment. Once the transactions were complete, I was to submit surveys regarding both locations via email.


There was no way that I was going to deposit a check in my account and then transfer funds out of my account within 24 hours of the deposit. I phoned the bank listed on the check (Frost National Bank) out of Houston, TX to verify availability of funds on the account the check was drawn against. Lo and behold, the bank informed me that the account number listed on the check is invalid.

The company name listed on the check is not even Emysteryshop Evaluation. The name on the check is PE Service Consultant Engineers out of Houston, TX. Furthermore, the Fed Ex package was sent to me by a Claire Engelhardt (from an apartment building) in Bismarck, ND. Now I'm dealing with 3 different companies/individuals out of 3 different cities and states. That right there made me question how legitimate this whole deal was.

This is about the biggest scam I have ever heard of. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT FALL VICTIM TO THIS SCAM AND SIGN UP TO BE A MYSTERY SHOPPER FOR THIS ORGANIZATION. I am glad I did my homework and researched this before I did some damage to my personal finances, but I am ashamed of myself for falling into the trap. I hope that I have no further dealings with this organization or person(s) who have contacted me via email.

By the way, I contacted the person (Hallen Walters) who I had been receiving emails from and advised him of the situation and told him that I did not intend to carry out the assignment. I also informed him that the bank account was invalid. By no surprise, I have not received any further communication from this person.
