Warning about mystery shopping scams
What to look out for and how to get help – don’t be a victim of a scam
In the last several months we have been seeing increased activity among scammers attempting to take your money and as a trusted mystery shopping provider, NBD-Business wants you to know that we’re here to help.
If you believe you have been approached by a fraudulent mystery shop company, we suggest you contact one or all the following:
Your local police department. Ask for the Cyber Crimes department.
Ministry of Trade and Investment, Department of Commercial Fraud.
E-mail service provider of the person contacting you such as Google, Yahoo, etc., visit their ‘Contact Us’ page to file a complaint.
Remember to provide accurate information about the person or persons
These individuals or groups want to take your money and will go to extreme measures to trick you into believing that they are a legitimate business.
Here are some of the clues that will help you identify the contact as a scam:
You are sent ‘money’ in the form of a check in advance of your performing a shop. These checks are not good and your bank will then look for you to make good on the deposit. NBD-Business Information does not pay shoppers in advance of a shop.
You are asked to pay money to become a shopper. Legitimate mystery shopping firms never ask for money from a shopper. A good source to consult about current scams is the Mystery Shopping Providers Association (MSPA).
The email address does not use a legitimate NBD-Business email name, which will always be in the form of firstname.lastname@example.org. If the person contacting you has an AOL or Gmail or similar non-corporate email address, it is not from a legitimate mystery shopping company. Remember, if the email is from a real person employed by NBD-Business, our name NBD-Business will appear after the @, not before.
The regular mail has a letter with a legitimate return address but the postmark is not from the same area, it is likely a scam. Almost all of our correspondence with shoppers will be by email (our corporate email address; email@example.com); but in any case, when the postmark does not match with the return address, be suspicious!
Offer includes a high payment amount for a relatively easy assignment. If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is! Beware of a large check that you are to deposit into your account, send most of the money to the sender, and you keep the balance as your fee.
You were contacted through text or SMS NBD-Business does not communicate with its shoppers through text or SMS. We do have a mobile phone app through which we communicate, but that app is tightly controlled and NBD-Business does not communicate with its shoppers through text or SMS.
