I can't speak for Shadow Shopper's member registration policies or paid memberships, but I can say that I work for a legitimate mystery shopping company and regularly post jobs to Shadow Shopper's database. I also occasionally purchase contact information for shoppers...

Scams

I wish to be disassociated with your company completely. Upon entering your sphere I have seen the "good" jobs held for paying premium membership. Why? Then, I received a job offer. 1st one. Cool. Well, not so fast. First, there was no return address...even on an envelope containing a cashier's check for $948? Hmmm... The check has bounced...yeah ....it's a fraud. A scam. Luckily I did nothing before the "funds" came available and since they did not I got in touch with my bank. More action is coming, I'm sure, as there are authorities who will be interested in interstate money scams.

Scamming *** bags

These *** have tried to get me with this same scam twice but i also got one that was for something i was selling on Facebook the person sent me a check for 3200 dollers and told me to take the money that i need for what i was sold them and to send the test to there mover and he would come get the item in a couple days, i know that this was a scam right off the bat. No one would send that kind of money unless it was something fishy. Be careful scammers someone will get you.

Abusive intrusion

Unsubscribe does not work. I even started doing unsubscribe on every single message sent. It's all a bogus bunch of crap that multiples like rabbits, slows down my getting to important messages, wastes my time, clutters up my device and pretty much has me in tears from receiving a dozen and more daily. They used deception to make me believe I had worked with them years ago. They need to go away NOW!

I got that same check, left it sitting right on my counter, my son's kept telling me to cash it... I said to them, do you think I'm crazy?

I haven't work, nobody owe me nothing, so who's gonna send me some free money like that... one of them kept saying how real the check look, okay it does look real... but who's issuing out free money?????

I also was told those same instuctions. People please be careful, all money is not good money.

Waste of time and energy. They also want your $

This is a scam. They lure you with a text saying make up to $300 per job as a mystery shopper at your favorite restaurants and places to shop. I went through the entire process and the highest mystery shopper job offered was for a reimbursement of $18. This is after being bombarded with jobs that do not apply to being a mystery shopper at all. About 5% of the jobs listed are for mystery shopping. When I wrote the company and said I was only interested in being a mystery shopper, as the text message advertised, they wrote back asking me to pay money to have my name brought to the top of the list. They waste your time to the point where you feel you’ve already invested so much you may as well pay the fee to get the job that was originally advertised to you. I have enough time on my hands to let people know this is a scam, false advertising, and a massive waste of time.

Please note that these were NOT sent out by ShadowShopper, but by a criminal gang fraudulently claiming to be a legitimate enterprise by representing themselves as real companies. Please take a moment to read our Public Service Announcement regarding check scams.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU DEPOSIT THE MONIES THAT WERE SENT. The checks/money orders come back as insufficient funds a number of days later, and your bank will consider you responsible for paying it back.

I got an email telling me your sending me a check to deposit and then to wire the funds elsewhere this is fishy!!!

That's a scam, just as you probably assumed based on the pay.
