NY AG Shuts Down Two Mystery Shopping Websites
Yesterday, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced he has shutdown two websites as part of a “work at home” scam involving a mystery shopper program. Legitimate retailers use this service, hiring marketing research companies to evaluate the quality of service in their stores.

The websites, idealcorp.net and survsonl.com, operating as T. Crefideal Corp, lured consumers into becoming mystery shoppers to gather information anonymously about the customer service of a particular store, but instead of getting paid, they were duped into paying the scammers thousands of dollars.

For more information about fake check scams, you can visit FakeChecks.org. This website was created by the National Consumers League (NCL) in collaboration with the Alliance for Consumer Fraud Awareness.

If you think you have encountered a mystery shopping scam, or other similar fake check scam, contact the money transfer company immediately to report the fraud and file a complaint.
