Mystery Shopper Scam

Posted: 03/28/2013 - We want to warn you about a scam that is nearly irresistible to consumers. Scammers offer to pay you to go shopping. But the BBB says it’s not real. The check for nearly two thousand dollars attracts consumers who want to make easy money. They offer to pay you to be a mystery shopper. Before the “money” from the check you get clears the bank, you’re asked to go to a website and wire money to buy training materials or send back money you didn’t spend at the stores. But the check is a fake, and victims spend money they don’t actually have. The current scam going around Colorado Springs is from a company not accredited by the BBB. It’s L.S. Management Inc. out of Tennessee. To learn more about the scam or how to become a legitimate mystery shopper, visit the links below:
