Shopper Area

We have been made aware of scam attempts by mail, email and/or text using our company name. 
 
Website Form Scam
Scammers may send you a text or email indicating they have an opportunity for a part-time mystery shopper to earn hundreds of dollars.  They then direct you to click a link to visit a website to 'register.'  DO NOT click the link in the message or complete the form on the website. We would never send out unsolicited texts/emails or gather information in this manner.
Letter and Cashier's Check Scam
 
We DO NOT contact shoppers by postal mail, and we would NEVER send a cashier's check in the mail.  If you receive a letter and/or cashier's check, please report the scam using one of the methods listed below.
Gift Card Scam
These scam messages may be asking you to purchase gift cards and/or they may ask you to evaluate a well-known establishment, such as Walmart or Kmart.  They may also ask you to purchase money orders at the post office.  Please DO NOT respond to ​any texts or emails claiming to be from National Shopping Service Network asking for your address and/or offering to send you a check in the mail to complete an assignment.  We would never conduct an actual assignment in that manner.
**DO NOT respond to a letter or attempt to cash a cashier's check.**
**DO NOT enter your contact information into an unknown website.**
 
Our company website is www.mysteryshopper.net and our emails are from that domain as well. If you are referred to a website, CHECK THE WEBSITE ADDRESS.  If it is something like "forms.office.com/pages/...",  it is NOT our company website.  If you got an email, CHECK THE EMAIL ADDRESS.  If it is from any domain other than @mysteryshopper.net, it is NOT from our company. 
Subscription Fees
We DO NOT charge shoppers a subscription or membership fee, and we do not collect account numbers for this purpose.  It is FREE for all shoppers to register on our website.  If you have a charge to your account and are unsure who charged you, contact your bank to determine the source of the charge.
Reminders about avoiding scams:
  • NSSN will never send you a cashier's check or money order in the mail. 
     
  • If you receive an offer that sounds too good to be true, like purchase a few gift cards and keep $300, it's likely a scam. An offer to earn $300 to $600 per week is highly unlikely for a legitimate mystery shopping assignment.
 
  • Emails from our company will ONLY come from the domain @mysteryshopper.net.  Emails from any other domain, such as gmail or yahoo, are not from a representative of our company.  
  • We would only text or call you if you have given us your number when registering with us as a shopper.
