Tips to Protect Yourself from Mystery Shopping Scams

Mystery Shoppers, especially new ones are sometimes targeted by scam artists. Don’t fall for these! The following great tips can be applied to any mystery shopping emails where you are asked to send an amount of money. Here is an example from Doulas Stafford:

Douglas Stafford Posted the following on their site:

We have become aware of an email and/or gumtree.com mystery shopper job advert scam which is being circulated at the moment. The scam involves emails pretending to be from a Douglas Stafford employee, using Douglas Stafford imagery taken from our website.

The scam will typically ask you to take on an assignment and ask you to send money through a money transfer agency (e.g. Western Union) which can be reclaimed at a later date. These emails are in no way connected to Douglas Stafford Limited.
• If you receive an email that is not from a “@douglasstafford.com” email address, it is not genuine.
• If you receive an email asking you to send or transfer money, it is not genuine.
• If you have received an email but have not registered directly with Douglas Stafford, it is not genuine.
• If the email is poorly written, with broken English, it is not genuine.
• If a job advertisement does not ask you to apply via our website www.douglasstafford.com or directly by an “@douglasstafford.com” email address, it is not genuine.
If you are unsure whether an email or job advert is genuine, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Douglas Stafford
