First I got this email:

Thank you for your interest in the Mystery Shopper position.
Our company conducts surveys and evaluates other companies in order to help them achieve their performance goals.
We offer an integrated suite of business solutions that enables corporations to achieve tangible results in the marketplace.
We get hired by other companies and act like customers to find out how they are handling their services in relation to their customers.

Mystery Shopping is the most accurate and reliable tool a business can use to gather information regarding their actual customer service performance at the moment of truth. This moment of truth is not when the staff is on their best behavior because the boss is around - it is when they interact with customers during their normal daily routines.
This is where you, the Mystery Shopper, come in. You pose as an ordinary customer and provide feedback of both factual observations (ex...the floor was free of debris) and your own opinions (ex...I felt that the temperature in the establishment was too cold).

Mystery Shoppers must remain anonymous. You must act as a regular customer and be careful not to do anything that would reveal you as a shopper. An inexperienced shopper could tip off the staff to his/her identity by asking for the manager's name for no clear or appropriate reason. If you are going to be bringing someone with you on the shop, make sure you educate them about the process as well. Beware that even whispers can be overheard by employees. If anyone notices you are a shopper, you can bet that word will quickly spread around the establishment and you will get some of the best customer service in town.
No company can afford to have a gap between the promise of quality and its actual delivery, that's why leading corporations look to us, the nation's premiere mystery shopping and customer experience measurement company.

In order for a business to effectively compete in today's economy, they must be prepared to meet the challenge of increasing sales by:
* Retaining existing customers
* Acquiring new customers
* Creating word-of-mouth advocacy
* Improving customer loyalty

Once we have a contract to do so, you would be directed to the company or outlet, and you would be given the funds you need to do the job(either purchase merchandise or require services), after which you would write a detailed report of your experience.
Examples of details you would forward to us are:
1) How long does it take to get served.
2) Politeness of the attendant.
3) Customer service professionalism.
4) Sometimes you might be required to upset the attendant, to see how they deal with difficult clients.
Then we turn the information over to the company executives and they will carry out their own duties in improving their services.
Most companies employ our assistance when people complain about their services, or when they feel there is a need for them to improve upon their customer service.
Our company partners with you to implement proven mystery shop auditing and surveying strategies that provide critical information about customer experiences.
You will be paid a commission of $100 for every duty you carry out, and bonus on your transportation allowance.
Your task will be to evaluate and comment on customer service in a wide variety of restaurants, retail stores, casinos, shopping malls, banks and hotels in your area.

Qualities of a good Mystery Shopper:
* Is 21 years of age or older
* Loves to go shopping
* Is fair and objective
* Is ON TIME
* Is very observant and able to focus on details
* Is fairly intelligent
* Has patience
* Is detail oriented
* Is practical
* Types well
* Is trustworthy
* Explains well in writing
* Is discreet
* Loves to learn
* Handles deadlines
* Has full internet access (at home or at work)

Mystery Shopping is fun and exciting but also must be approached very seriously and is definitely not for everyone.


If you are interested in applying for consideration as a Mystery Shopper do send in your information only to our e-mail: [email protected]

As soon as we receive your information we will add you to our databse and we will look for locations in your area that needs to be evaluated.

=======================
Now, I know there are some legit mystery shopper programs, so I sent a reply:

"I am possibly interested, but I would like to check and verify that this email address is correct and the offer is valid; that is to say please reply to verify that you are not just collecting email addresses for SPAM and I will send you the personal information you request.

Thank you."
==================
And got this in response:

Shopper's Guide wants you to run surveys on a few prominent western union locations in your area(you will be filled with the exact details).
There have been complains about their services and some of their employees.
The Western Union location was reported for evaluation for the following
reasons:
1) Customers have reported their money missing.
2) Slow services.
3) Unbalanced transfer charges.
4) Rudeness to customers.
6) Late opening time and Closing before time.
Your Secret Evaluation at the first western union location would be:
1) To make a transfer of funds from this western union location to another mystery shopper (we will provide with the needed funds).
2) You will have to record the time you spend sending the transfer.
3) You will also provide the name of the cashier that attended to you.
4) Make a detailed report about your personal impressions as an average customer.
We will send you the money to cover your $100 commission and the money you need to use at the western union location.
Upon receiving the funds, the exact instructions of the survey will be forwarded to you.
You will have to keep a comprehensive report on every activity you carry out.
If you are interested in becoming a mystery shopper confirm that you are ready by replying to this message with "I AGREE".

Thank you,

====================
Now I'm really suspicious so I wrote back one more time and basically said "You must think I'm really stupid!"
=======================
Whereupon I got yet another response:

After the training period you will receive all the needed documents to fill and sign.
During your one week training period, the first set of surveys you have to do is at a few western union locations in your area, within 5 miles from your zip code.
The task is to go there as a customer and tell them you want to use their service to send money to a friend.
The funds will be received by another mystery shopper who is also making an evaluation.
You have to be very natural but at the same time focus on small details as we need a comprehensive report from you.
Your report should include:
-how courteous the attendant is.
-how clean the location is.
-whether or not your presence was acknowledged within a short time of arrival and if you were greeted in a friendly manner.
-description of the attendant's clothes, whether they are professional or not.
-how well they know their products/services.
-exact amount of minutes you spend at the location.
-any other strange or unusual thing you may notice while you are there and worth mentioning.
-how would you rate them (Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor).
Make sure you start writing down notes as soon as you finish the survey so you don't forget important details.
To complete this first task we will be sending you the funds needed for the survey plus your $100 commission.
Having an account with Citibank is a requirement, if you don't have one you should open a new one at any Citibank branch.
We are banking with Citibank and as our employee you must be banking with Citibank as well to avoid unnecessary delays.
Once you have the account ready reply with the wiring details(account name and number )we will send you the needed funds so we can move forward with your first survey.

Thank you,

I'm pretty sure this is some kind of scam now; what do you think? And feel free to mess with him if you're interested. These messages are coming to my WORK email so I'm going to drop it at this point.

Definitely a scam. No legit business uses a free webmail address such as gmail.
And the mystery shopper email is a known scam. I hadn't realised they involved Western Union, but it makes sense. It's an overpayment scam. The victim is sent a dud check (or some sort of fake bank transfer as they mention Citibank) , and sends off all but $100 to the scammer via WU before the check bounces.

Don't bait this prick. Report him. The longer this guy is online the more people he scams.

If that site is his, it needs to be reported.

In the meantime, I'll jump on the baiting bandwagon.
