The Freeman Group is back and looking for more mystery shoppers again. (Source). December 13, 2018

I am not taking my chances, but that's just me. MSPA membership does NOT give any MSC more legitimacy. I think Freeman Group had a MSPA membership, but that did not stop them from not paying shoppers before they eventually went bankrupt. (Source). October 28, 2018
