Beware of Scams!

As the exclusive Field Agent Database for TrendSource, TheSource is a leader and trailblazer in the mystery shopping industry. There are a lot of imposters out there, so be careful, and always remember:

  • This is the only place to sign up for Mystery Shops with TheSource. Accept no substitutes.
  • Never (NEVER!) pay to become a mystery shopper.
  • If you received a check that seems suspicious, do not trust it! No reputable mystery shopping company under any circumstance will ever pay you for work that has not been completed.
  • When in doubt, reach out to the Mystery Shoppers Professional Association (MSPA).
  • If you are certain you are being scammed, reach out to the National Consumers League and contact your local authorities.
