The attorney for Market Force said all that was necessary to be a mystery shopper was that a person "be breathing." ...it turned out that he had performed those shops for a different MSC. Market Force had brought documentation that the shopper had been paid for every shop he performed for them.

I realize that this is a typo, but, I know a few people who would perfectly fit the term Human Bean.
Thank you for ( inadvertently) giving me a good laugh this morning. I really needed it.
. But yes, you can sue, you can win and you CAN collect.
"So, breathing but brain dead is OK?
How in God's name could a shopper sue the wrong MSC?"
Court TV is fake, and so is Jersey Shore, Dr. Phil, and Pawn shows. Judge Judy makes about $47 Million for 52 days work per year. I don't think those on court TV have to be actual judges (just lawyers), but the parties agree to allow TV judges to be arbitrators.
It's dumb and I find it disgusting, and it takes a little more than to be breathing to mystery shopping. If not, it's a bad reflection on mystery shopping companies for hiring bad workers, not on us who have a little education and know how to take photographs, scan and resize, and stay sober enough to evaluated the employees.
We should all sue the dumb a*s who said that on national television.
There was a thread about MF paying tolls. I believe it was in the eastern area of US where there are many tolls in cities or between them. I believe NYC and Boston were mentioned and shoppers were getting reimbursed for tolls. I checked my ICA with MF and tolls are not mentioned. In the TV court case they said the ICA states no tolls will be paid. Of course the ICA may have changed since 2013, the air date for the show.
There was a thread earlier this year about an MSC who threatened to sue a shopper for posting on this forum (there were other events leading up to that). The shopper counter-sued. The MSC, which is still unknown, agreed to pay shopper a 6-figure settlement. The shopper wanted to be able to post the name of the scheduler and the company as part of the agreement.
We never heard the outcome. I'm guessing the shopper had to sign an NDA. Hope everything worked out well for the shopper. Does anyone have any more details on this?
I'm not posting the link either, but if memory serves me correctly, the shopper was in an accident or got into a very dangerous situation, reported it to the MSC...they didn't believe him/her......accused him/her of lying.....the whole thing escalated....lawyers involved....hope the shopper made out OK....I believe the shopper reported it was settled.
