For all of those that do shadow and mystery shopping, beware of a new
scam that is now on the rise!
Today I got a letter in the mail claiming to be from "ShadowShopper"
and I done research because I found it odd that they would send a
check for the amount of $2,950 to someone that couldn't even remember
signing up for them. I did sign up, after I got the letter to notify
them that someone was using them as a scam to get money from their
I took the phone number it asked me to call, reversed it in 411.com.
Came up to be a cell phone for Fido Solutions in Brampton, ON
Then, I reversed the address and it don't exist!
Then I reversed the bank information, don't exist! If it does, funny
to me 411.com don't have it listed.
Then I reversed the phone number that was on the check to the bank,
guess what? A cell phone to Fido Solutions in Toronto, ON CA and the
FAX was a landline for an International Telecom.
I want everyone to be aware of this if you do mystery shopping and if
you don't and are interested in beginning the mystery shopping.
Always check these things before you hang yourself and send money
that don't exist and you end up paying for it out of your pocket, or
in some cases locked up!
