IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING “MYSTERY SHOPPER” SCAM
UPDATE April 24, 2018:
We have been notified that this scam is back in circulation, and has somehow involved DataQuest’s name, logo, and/or similar contact information again. However, it appears that the scammers are now also contacting potential victims through LinkedIn. Once contacted, the potential victim may receive another email stating that they have been chosen and will receive a check in the mail, along with other instructions. This email states it is from someone at DataQuest, but this is fake. Again, we have not authorized this and in no way support it. This is another scam and DataQuest has absolutely no part in it.
