To all mystery shoppers! 1

I have no idea what the scam is here – but I know that it is a scam.  Mystery shopping organisations don’t send out random emails, you have to apply for the job (I know – I’ve done it in the past).  They also don’t pay anything like £200 just for visiting a shop.

The sender claims they have ” a mystery shopping assignment in your area ” – but they have no idea who you are or where you live.  I suspect this scam is going to involve some kind of over payment where you will be asked to forward money.

Interestingly, although this email claims to have been sent from a reputable organisation (info (at) mystery shopper (dot) net, the email was sent from a government email address in Namibia – grnnet.gov.na
