I haven't, and nothing comes up through search. $400 is a pretty steep fee for a shop -- definitely sounds like a scam. If not, sign me up!

This is a standard format scam. Legitimate companies have you sign up on their website and the price is out of the ballpark for shops. So use some common sense and hit that famous "delete" button on your computer.

No one is going to pay $400.00 for mystery shopping. It looks like a scam to me.

Delete! I just googled MSG Shoppers and nothing comes us. Sound suspicious to me.

I have noticed that the more companies I sign up with, the more of these SCAM e-mails I get. Every time I go through and sign up with a few legitimate companies, I get e-mails just like this for the next few days. I just wonder how they know to target my e-mail - or is it some kind of strange coincidence?
