Respectable websites carry adverts for UK Mystery Shopper.
Such as a picture of the Aldi supermarket sign plus the words “Free £100 Voucher”
Sounds interesting but it’s a link to the UK Mystery Shopper website where the story is rather different.
UK Mystery Shopper describes itself as a website where consumers can access and read our member’s reviews of some of the UK’s most popular restaurants and stores.
Surprisingly there are very few reviews to be read.
The sales lines follow:
- Earn £10 per hour with our jobs.
- Mystery Shopping Jobs Giveaway £100 in free shopping if selected.
- Free food shopping
And so on
There is an APPLY Now button. Simply enter your details and they’ll let you know if you’ve been chosen as a mystery shopper.
But you have to pay £34 to register.
If you have to pay to register an interest in a job then it’s a scam.
What do you get for your £34?
They may send you a list of companies that supposedly use mystery shoppers.
But the companies that do this are easily found on the Internet and they pay peanuts because there are so many people who want these jobs.
Is this in effect an illegal lottery where hundreds or thousands of people pay £34 but there’s little payout or maybe occasionally someone gets a voucher.
Not a good deal. Better to play the actual lottery.
As for getting a job through them as a mystery shopper – there’s probably more chance of winning a jackpot on the lottery.
