    Yep, received this one exactly like this. ABSOLUTELY. NO mystery shopper job will ever offer something the pays this much, per job, at only 1 chain, promising 2 jobs a week.

    WAY TO MANY MAJOR RED FLAGS!!

    My only question is if the

    the scammer is only asking for name and address (which is easy to find on a basic internet search), and the scammer mentions they will give you a check, not asking for your bank info... how in what way does the scammer benefit? Unless maybe that after the check bounces, the scammer (& scammer says they will pay for bounce fee) and to make sure, they say they will do a direct deposit and ask for *your bank account numbers*? OR in order to send you a check, they need to confirm your identity?

    Can't just be getting your name and email address just to sell basic info, could it?

    Anyway, it's definitely a scam for sure. Although to be honest, I am very tempted to try to find out, by using a fake name and such to give them and reply, and waste their time! (Many on youtube videos do this, and it kinda funny how it turns out...

      The scammers will start with your personal information. Then, they will contact you after and attempt to scam you. They may also sell your information to other scammers who will do the same.
