Complaint / review text:
ShadowShopper.com sends numerous emails advertising what appear to be local mystery or secret shopper jobs. However none of the jobs are available until you sign up for a $4.95 "trial." The $4.95 is billed as $19.95 and the "chat" room sales person tells you the $4.95 is only to apply and the charge is $19.95.
They WILL NOT refund any money. The jobs are not local but throughout the US. The company is located at 1894 E. William St.
Carson City, Nevada 89701.in Nevada and other States Secret Shoppers are required to have a PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR LICENSE. SHADOWSHOPPER does not tell the consumer of this requirement but claims they are not hiring the shopper - the business is hiring the shopper and the PI license is the responsibility of the business. The shopper could be arrested for not having the PI License.
Application to the listed jobs must be immediate so the "shopper" never gets the job if it even exists. I am sending complaint to the Attorney General.
