    Under no circumstance should you acknowledge that you are evaluating their services as that will defeat the purpose of the whole program, some of the security questions which they may ask to figure out if you are a mystery shopper include, but not limited to the following:

    •If or when asked if you are a mystery shopper, answer NO.

    Kindly use the same questionnaire you have to prepare the report. Send the receipt of all the purchases and also the pictures of the gift cards purchased after scratching off the labels.

    Thanks
