The Consumer Insight and Retail Insight - Same MSC?

I belong to a mystery shopping job board that sends me jobs offers from many MSCs all on the same board. The following job listing is posted below. I removed the client name and shortened some of the shop details.

I am a bit confused because the posting refers to two different companies...The Consumer Insight and Retail Insight with two different scheduler e-mail addresses. Are these two companies one and the same?

When I tried to do some research, it seems to go around in circles. I somehow landed on a web page for Corporate Research International (Is that CORI?) but the shopper application said Customer Insights. So now I am even MORE confused!

Can anyone clarify?

I followed the link in your post and it took me to a signup for "The Retail Outsource". I searched the job board and they have no jobs in my country (USA). Also, the email I got from them to confirm my address was from "."

Strange indeed.
