Additional Complaint Information

Complaints filed with the BBB against this firm are unable to be processed because mail has been returned undeliverable. According to information received by the BBB, this firm “hires” mystery shoppers by sending consumers large checks. Consumers report that they are instructed to deposit the check, spend money as a “mystery shopper,” and wire the difference to the firm. After spending money on mystery shopping and wiring the difference back to the firm, consumers realize that the original check is fraudulent. Consumers have no way of recovering the spent money.  

** Tips on Mystery Shopping: The victim believes that they are going to earn a few hundred dollars by working for a company that provides mystery—or secret—shopping evaluations for businesses. The victim typically receives a letter in the mail along with evaluation forms, a check and detailed instructions. The victim is to deposit the check into their bank account, and then use the money to purchase items from specified stores and evaluate the customer service. Included in the list of stores to evaluate is Western Union or MoneyGram and the victim is told to wire as much as a couple thousand dollars back to their “employer” and rate their experience with the money wiring service. Shortly after, the victim finds out the check is fraudulent and they have lost both the amount wired and the amount initially deposited.
