I recieved an email that is too similar to this one not to raise suspision, the format of the email is almost identical. The slight differences are the name of the "company" is Mysteryshop Global Markets Inc, and the "Recruitment Coordinator" is Melanie Heinz. The job requirements are identical and the pay scale promises $180 per evaluation. Now it is still unclear to me if the posting I am responding to is stating the "Kathy Green Mystery Shopper" add is a proven scam or not. However, if so, could the job I am refering to be the real deal and the above mentioned possible scam be creating a similar image? It's all very confusing. I wish there was a trusted site I could go to, punch in some key info and be given word stating legitimacy or cases of fraud. :?

Both are definite scams.

Legitimate mystery shopper jobs do not pay hundreds of dollars per evaluation, and you are not paid up front. The scammers want to use you to cash a fake check and forward money to them before the fake is discovered. When it is, you will be left in a lot of trouble and debt.

In a legitimate mystery shopper job, you will perform the task, submit the evaluation, and you will generally be paid (a simple purchase will pay less than $100) AFTER your submission is reviewed and approved. There is actually pretty significant competition for real mystery shopper jobs, and they will never be offered to you randomly via email.

Here is the FTC's overview of mystery shopper scams. ... lt151.shtm
