Hope Research Group Shoppers Evaluation Scams

Scammers are sending out fake email messages, like the one below, to potential victims, which appear as if they came from Hope Research Group claiming they are currently accepting limited number of applications from competent mystery shoppers to evaluate some department stores, restaurants and business centers in the US and Canada. But, the fake email messages are another phishing scam that are being used by scammers to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information, by promising them ways of making quick and easy money doing something which almost everyone likes, shopping for free.

The stolen information collected by the scammers will be used by them to contact their potential victims and attempt to scam them. This is why online users should never respond to unsolicited email messages with their personal or financial information, and should always research claims by emails and websites that request personal information.

    at least 1 full year since many scam reviews of this secret shopper job offer and I just received it.

    It must be lucrative business - still going. It makes me sick how low can individuals get hacking and scamming.

    Its a tough life lesson for those who fall victim.

    Thank you to the creator of this page and all the reviewers for sharing the warning - you restore my faith in humanity. love and peace

    Glad I researched this before I responded to their email. Thanks

  • June 7, 2018 at 2:11 PM by an anonymous user from: New York, United States

    I was scammed by them. They sent me a cashiers check, I deposited it but my bank would not clear it until next week.

    I emailed John Taylor, informed him if he was trying to scam me I would turn him in.Insisted he was not and they were a legit business. Got me to spend, thank goodness, $20.00 of my money wanted me to do more but refused unless they sent my money to me...Have not heard from them yet.

  • March 15, 2018 at 6:36 PM by an anonymous user from: Pontiac, Michigan, United States

    I received 110 of these messages in the past 24 hours. I ended up creating a mail filter to flag them as spam so it would stop blowing up my phone.

    Why would anyone think filling up my email box with the same scam email over and over again prompt me to fall for it? "He didn't fall for the first 90 messages we sent today, maybe he'll fall for the next 20 messages..."

  • February 2, 2018 at 8:57 AM by an anonymous user from: Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada

    I got one today too, I see the old message had the following part changed:

    "Most of the time you will only need to spend 20 minutes on each assignment."

    to

    "Most of the time you will only need to spend few minutes on each assignment."

    This shows the person the first language isn't English as it should have written out, "...spend A few minutes...".

    My message started with:

    366-154-5834 and received another one a minute before that with 959-382-4756. The emails listed Cc were normal looking emails with @live.com and @hotmail.com.

    I think this scammer might have a database with someone's account info but might be missing a password or something else and he/she might be trying to recover the accounts with the information you provide. There have been numerous breaches at big-name companies where their userbase has been stolen but a password or credit card number is missing. It's one possible scam if it's not the check/bank one.

    Subject: Re: First Assignment Package as a Secret Survey Shopper

    Hello Gwen,

    Your job role is legit and the name of my company is Hope Research Group and we were contracted by the U.S. Census Data and Statistics. You must have been sending to an incorrect or wrong email address.

    Yes the check would be cancelled but i need to inform you to expect to be served a notice from our lawyer soon for breach of contract since you offered for the job role and lots of resources have been expended to select you among thousands of other potential

    applicants. You also need to know that background check was also carried out before you were selected.

    However you still have a chance to get your task carried out by the end of this week to stop any legal proceedings against you and remember you are a secret survey shopper.

    Thanks

    John Taylor"

    I just recently got contacted with this SAME exact email, but with a number from Arlington Heights, IL, I was wondering if they could possibly s***w me over with having my name, email, address and phone number? They never got anything else because I alright became skeptical and started drilling the guy with questions, who, may I add, could barely speak English. Just wanting to know if I have anything to worry about.

    I got the same email "John Taylor" with the number 833-224-8363. This email stated the pay will be $362 to $493, which is an odd number to pay. Emails like this are easy to spot as phishing by the email address, which is usually not from a known email provider (hotmail,outlook,gmail,yahoo). Sometimes the email that is sent to you is also cc to other odd email addresses, in this case (jzkpsxoy@bltkscgf, kwobuvas@sqszfxor, cauastqx@otrsgmcu,ngytbono@sncfdxns) which means any information you provide will also be sent to these addresses that can be difficult to trace. Look for grammatical errors. And if is sounds too good to be true, then don't share any information.
