Does anyone know anything about Business Solution Survey Shopping Research, Inc. I received an application thru career builder from them, but do not know their reputation.

It didn't take too long to find out more using Google. It included the "job" posting from Career Builder. I will include a link to the whole thing. Meanwhile here are the two statements which guarantee this is nothing more than a scam.

"We would provide funding to enable you account as any regular customer and experience the quality of service rendered at such a location."

"You would be paid $200.00 for every onsite-customer survey you complete."

No company in their right mind would ever pay someone prior to them performing a service. That is just crazy stupid. If mystery regularly paid as much as $200 an hour or more, everyone would be doing it. Good grief, there are people with advanced degrees that don't make anywhere near that much.

My thoughts as well. I thought this is in the "sounds to good to be true" category. Thanks for the link. I will check it out. I did MS many years ago (just out of college), but though a national temp service. So doing it independently is new for me.

Check out the section titled New Mystery Shoppers. There is a ton of good information about starting and growing your mystery shopping business if you are inclined to try it again. There is also a list of reputable companies at the bottom of every page and next to their names is a link to view discussions about them so you can get an idea of how other shoppers feel about their assignments and payment terms.
