So here's the thing. This is the first shop I've ever done for Intouch Insight (as Intouch Insight. I did used to do shops for Service Intelligence, but they eventually quit doing all the shops I used to do for them.)
This was also the first shop I've ever done (afair) for iSS.
So how does payment work? iSS says payment is through Intouch Insight. The notes on this forum says Intouch Insight pays through electronic deposit ... but I have no clue if Intouch Insight has my account information. Just wondering if someone who does this regularly can mention just how this works.
I did a shop for Intouch Insight through iSS. It was my first shop with the MSC but not for iSS. Make sure you sign the ICA in iSS for the MSCs you are working for. I did not have an issue with payment.

ISS = I Secret Shop, it's a platform where you can sign up for a bunch of MSC's all at once and look for shops with them in one place. In Touch insight is the one I've done the most shops with through ISS they are a good company and pay promptly.
ICA = Independent Contractor Agreement. This is what you sign when you start working with a MSC. It spells out all the legalities about your responsibilities and theirs. It usually includes an agreement on your part not to disclose who their clients are.

There are 3 kinds of lies. Lies, Damn lies, and statistics.
This is a very common scam. The check is bad. However, your bank will release the funds to you as required by law before they are able to determine that it is bad. If you deposit the the check, you will be charged a bad check fee. If you withdraw the money and send it to the scammer, you will be out whatever money you send. Moreover, when the check bounces, if it overdraws your account, you will be assessed more fees.
If you have already deposited the check, call the bank NOW and stop them from processing it if possible.
