Scammers love attempting to take advantage of mystery shopping because it's a real industry. If they want you to respond to a free e-mail address, however, it's a scam, most especially if they don't give a company name. If you give them your information, they will send you a fake check for thousands of dollars. They want you to deposit it into your own bank account, and wire them most of the money back, usually by Western Union. You get to "keep the rest" as "your fee" for doing an assignment. When the check bounces, however, you have to pay the bank back, and Western Union will never take responsibility for what you wired. Basically, if you didn't ask for something, and get an e-mail about it, it's a scam, especially if they want you to send them money. Here are some mystery shopping scam-mails and videos.
