Have you used quest2shop.com?
I got an e-mail from quest2shop.com. They claim they have a "secret shopper" program where you write reviews of your experences shopping at diffrent stores and get paid for your trouble. I was pertty interested until I saw that they had a $30 membership fee. So I decided not to do it. Usually things where you have to pay to get "hired" are scams.
Anyway, they sent me another email today with a "reduced membership fee". Now it's ony $10. http://www.quest2shop.com/promotion/specialffbg.html I get the impression that they just have a list of other companies that are actually doing the secret shopper programs. Kind of like the ads in the paper for government impounded cars, and you end up paying $30 for a list of public auctions that you could have gotten by calling a courthouse.
I looked the domain up on Network Solution's whois, but that didn't get me anything helpful. I also googled and allthewebed the domain, with nothing. So I assume they are pretty new.
I was just wondering if anyone has had an experience with these people. I highly doubt they are legit, but you never know. I doubted pinecone research was legit too at first...
Do a Google on mystery shopper... there are a ton of resources out there that you can find for free.
http://www.shadowshopper.com looks like a pretty good place to start. I didn't sign up, but looks like they're giving access to the same database for free.
dude, i have been getting spam from those people for a few days now. it's been pissing me the hell off, because it's the only spam in my school account.
