Be aware that any email that comes from a company you shop with and asks for information again to work with them is a scam. Especially when it is in this scam format. Good luck to all and dont get caught up in this. Continue shopping.




Dear Applicant,

We have a job opening for the position of Mystery Shopper officer.Would you like to work from your home and get paid weekly? We are offering this position to all interested applicants. Please carefully read through.

VISIBILITY EVALUATION, INC is a well established Evaluating Firm,We are a company that conduct surveys and evaluate other companies. We get hired to go to other peoples companies and act like customers in order to know how the staffs are handling their services in relation to their customers. once we have a contract to do, so you would be directed to the company or outlet, and you would be given the funds you need to do the job(either purchase things or require services), after which you would write a comment on the staffs activities and give a detailed record of your experience.

Mystery shopping involves providing anonymous feedback to companies about the customer experience at their locations. Companies use mystery shopping programs for many reasons, but all programs involve evaluating whether the company's standards are being met .During a typical mystery shop, a mystery shopper will make observations at a specific store, restaurant, or other type of location, while blending in like an average customer. They will then report their observations to Global Evaluation through an email contact that will be given to you or the Experience Exchange.

Examples of details you would forward to us are ;


1) How long it took you to get services.
2) Smartness of the attendant
3)Customer service professionalism
4)Sometimes you might be required to upset the attendant, to see how they react to clients when they get tensed(under pressure).

Most companies employ our assistance when people give complaints about their services, or when they feel there are needs for them to improve their customer service. Your Identity would be kept confidential as the job states (secret shopper) you would be paid 10% for every survey you carry out, and bonus on your transportation allowance, and funds would be given to you if you have to dine as part of the duty.

I knew I should have checked this out first, but like an idiot I just replied to this exact e-mail. So how can we get these guys? Is there anyway we can scam these scammers and get the out of business?

Most of the people operating these scams are in another country, so it is VERY hard to do anything about it. Please read this for more information http://scamvictimsunited.blogspot.com/2 ... scams.html

How do they work?

An ADVANCE FEE scam asks you to carry out one or more assignments and says they will fund you in advance. BUT the funding they use is a money order for more than the cost of carrying out the assignments. They ask you to send them the surplus money. Only when you’ve done that do you discover your bank telling you that the money order was not valid.

A variation involves asking you to mystery shop Western Union by sending them a money order – your money gets to them but their money order turns out not to be valid.

We’ve recently seen some very genuine-looking American Express Travelers cheques – but they are forgeries. They are so good a bank might even accept them – a shop certainly might. But you’d be passing on a forgery (which is illegal) albeit unknowingly.

These scammers are sending huge volumes of emails to random lists and don’t know whether or not you really are registered with us as a mystery shopper – you just happened to be on their list. :lol:
