Anyone done shops for this MSC? They aren't in the MSC list. They are one of the Recruiterator companies on Job Slinger. They just sent me an email about a carpet cleaning shop. At $225 reimbursement, I want to make sure they don't have any payment problems before I commit.
That was Franchise Compliance and they are supposed to be out of business. Over the years I've done the occasional shop for Compliance Solutions without issue. In September of 2011 I had a reimbursement only shop that was supposed to pay out in 5 to 6 weeks making it sometime in October. It seems like it was December before I was actually paid. Whenever I would follow up the answer was they were waiting on the client to pay.

Never try to teach a pig to sing. It's a waste of your time and it really annoys the pig.
Rhonda, I don't have any information on Compliance Solutions. I suggest that you not front $225 for anyone unless it's for a product or service you are going to buy anyway. My policy is that if not being reimbursed would be a hardship, it's not the shop for me.

I think I should stick this on my computer. Probably the best way to look at it -- we are always at a little risk here of not being reimbursed, either due to our own error, losing a receipt, getting outed as a shopper and the client refusing the report, or the company going bankrupt before we get paid.
It's kind of like having a policy never to lend money to a friend you can't afford not to have repaid -- same principle, only this is business instead of personal.
I got in pretty deep with the USPS shops -- but I had a high degree of confidence in the MSC. But this would be a good policy to follow with any new company.

I pray it does not occur that the last thing I did before I died was vacuum the house or eat broccoli.
tell them to provide you with a visa gift card to pay for it so you are not stuck waiting for months for hundreds of dollars in reimbursement.

I'm wondering, what is the verdict on this company then? I see there's very little info on here and the last post about them on the other forum was from July....I am debating on canceling my $225 shop. There seems to be speculation on a different thread if they are in fact directly related to Franchise Compliance. If so, I'll definitely pass!
