ATTENTION: Scammers are posing as Advanced Feedback and a fake mystery shopping companies called Business Evaluation Services, The Lead Ace, SkyLine and Underwatre Contractors. These are scams intended to obtain private information and get you to deposit their bad check. Do not reply to their emails, provide any identifying information or deposit any checks.
What to look out for and how to get help if you believe that someone is trying to scam you.
Mystery Shoppers across the country are receiving emails from scammers posing as real companies. They will then send you letters in the mail along with checks for large amounts of money. These emails and letters appear to be legitimate and often include real company logos and may even have links to real websites. The scammer attempts to send you a check in the mail and will make it seem official by providing a shipping tracking number. They send checks for large amounts and ask you deposit them and to keep a certain amount as your shopper pay. The rest of the money is to be used for such things as buy gift cards during your shop. They will ask you to either send the gift cards back to them, or take pictures of the back of the cards so that they can gain access to the numbers and pins. The problem is that the checks they send will bounce in a few days and you are stuck paying for the gift cards with your own money. For example you recieve a check for $3,000, the "agent" asks you to deposit the check and to keep $500 for your shopper pay. Then you are told you will need to go to a big name store and purchase $2,500 worth of gift cards. When you get home you provide a write up of your shop and send pictures of the cards with the film scratched off the back to expose the numbers. The next day the check you deposited bounces and you have just lost $2,500 from your account.

Here are some other clues that will help you to determine if the offer is 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. Advanced Feedback, Inc. 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.
- The email address does not use a legitimate Advanced Feedback Inc. email name, which will always be in the form of email@example.com. 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.
- 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.
- If the caller has a foreign accent but his or her given name does not sound foreign, be suspicious. Many of these scams are undertaken by groups calling from foreign countries who mask their phone numbers to look as if they are calling from the U.S.
- The offer includes a high payment amount for a relatively easy assignment. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
- The offer does not require you to enroll as a mystery shopper with Advanced Feedback, Inc. We require all individuals who wish to mystery shop with us to enroll, take certifications and apply for shops.
