When you read the advertisements for mystery shopping jobs that mention you can get paid to go shopping, you might find it a little hard to believe. It may sound strange, but it’s true. There are companies world over that are willing to pay you to shop at their stores, visit their parlors, eat at their restaurants, go to their amusement parks, and so on. All of these things are what you would normally love to do. The only difference is that you get paid to take part in these activities!

The fact remains that mystery shopping jobs are real. However, you should also be aware that there are hordes of scammers out there waiting to pounce on you. One way to be sure that you’ve got a real, legitimate shopping job is if you got the job without paying a dime. You see, scammers often require you to pay in some way or the other. This is a dream job for anyone looking for a home based job that they can enjoy. Remember, it is not an easy job. You may not make thousands in days (as some scammers project but, you will make a steady income as you continue to complete assignments given to you.

    Glad you keep posting valuable information online. There are so many scams out there that people are being discouraged and mystery shopping helps everyone when it is done right and for an actual mystery shopping company.

      Thanks! I hope it is helpful. I know when I first started mystery shopping I didn’t know where to start and I hope that this can keep someone from getting scammed.
