Want to make money shopping? Well watch out my lovelies!
Many of my readers have probably heard of secret shopping and would like to know more, so I thought it would be good to alert them to a scam that is going around. You sign up as a secret shopper, the guy, James Martins, sends you a check and this email, below. Of course, the check bounces and your account gets in the hole. I didn't cash the check he sent me, so don't worry. There were too many warning signs. If you look very closely at these checks in the light it will have the words "Void" printed across it. Here is the email:

So then you would go ahead and make a western union money transfer to another mystery shopper for another assignment.
We want you to deduct your weekly payment of $200 and have the remaining funds (minus the western union charges and also $50 for whatever you will be buying at Walmart) sent to the information below for proper preparation of our next Mystery Shopper.
