Go to their web site and see if the job is listed. If so, it's not a scam.Or you can contact the scheduler directly. Imforma Research is a great LEGIT company.
They no longer use a job board on their site. Routine jobs are scheduled through Bare. Other jobs are available only by invitation at this time. So, call Informa's phone number and ask to be transferred to Mystery Shopping Support. 800-532-8586.

I just found a $100 plus a $100 bonus on the Informa Sassie Job Page. They want you to apply for a loan. Even though it is 50 miles away, I am actually considering it.

Hmmm, interesting to see that they have started posting some jobs again. They went through a reorganization (NOT a financial reorganization!) when they moved to Sassie recently. And, for a time, they were doing invite-only, except for what Bare was scheduling.

They pay particularly well when the shop will require a "hard" credit hit. I have just done 2 of those a few weeks ago and my credit score has no budged one bit. YMMV

Also, they have at least one client that wants every location done by males and females of at least 3-4 ethnic types, every round. If you fit a demographic that is in short supply in your area, big bonuses may be offered. And, with long rotations for their in-person shops, shortages really do happen in every demographic category.

Both their outside schedulers and their in-house project folks are great to work with.
