Default Mystery Shopper

My G/F found one of these adds on Craigs list for a mystery shopper, where you get a list to buy stuff on line, and you have to fill out a survey at the end.
Has anybody done this, or have any info about it. Scam or not? This is the email they sent after she initially inquired.

Not the company you've listed but something to read about Mystery shopper companies.

Also the one you listed has the same info as, http://qualityreviewers.com/index.html who's feedback at the bottom seems fake.

Plus its all online shopping so you'll have to give out info at some point no matter what.

Yeah I tend to prefer to meet some one in person for a job off that CL site, or at least a reputable site, which can pass the phising scan.

But now a days cl is the place for jobs to be posted as it is the "in" thing, but as well comes with it's scams.
