ScamBook Investigates Mystery Shopping Scams

You’re recently unemployed, searching job boards and posting countless resumes.  Suddenly you receive an e-mail that you can’t pass up: get paid to go shopping.  You e-mail them back trying to withhold your enthusiasm.  They tell you you’re a perfect fit and you can start right away.  First, they’ll send you a check for a few hundred dollars. Second, cash the check, use a few hundred to go shopping at Walmart, take notes on your experience and keep anything you buy.  Finally, make sure you test Western Union by wiring some money to an international address.  So what’s wrong with that?

  1. That is such a dead giveaway the offer isn't legit. How can people fall for this and think they are mystery shopping?
