The CSET Customer Satisfaction Evaluation Tool looks real enough. Especially if you have done any bonafide mystery shopping. Which I have. But I have NEVER had any of my groups send me a check for $3995.00! That was an eye brow raiser! So I called the operator to see where the number was from and it was from Canada, even though letter states that company is based in Minnesota. Once I found out that I tried looking up the so called web site and this page is what I found! Thank the Lord I followed my hunches and followed through doing my research to find out this was a scam BEFORE I GOT SCAMMED!
MYSTERY SHOPPERS BEWARE!
