It has come to our attention that a lot of mystery shopping scams are circulating. We at Six Star Solutions, want to make sure that you are able to fulfill your passion of mystery shopping as safely and legitimately as possible. There are a few good ways to determine if a mystery shopping opportunity is safe to participate in:
1. A legitimate mystery shopping company will never ask you to pay a fee to sign up for opportunities.
2. Avoid all opportunities that ask you to wire money to strangers or the company that supposedly hired you. Also, avoid any companies that send you a check, asks you to cash it, and send a part of the money back to them. In both instances, the checks they send you are fake and will not clear your bank. You will be responsible for paying the bank back.
3. Visit the MSPA (Mystery Shopping Providers Association) website to see available opportunities in your area and reputable companies. http://www.mysteryshop.org
Also, please feel free to contact us about any opportunities that you are not sure about. We will do our best to help you determine the legitimacy of the opportunity. Thank you!
