Mystery Shopper Scam Alert Issued

Kentuckians looking to make extra money in time for the Christmas season need to watch out for seasonal employment scams. Attorney General Andy Beshear has issued a scam alert after receiving multiple reports from Kentuckians who said they responded to a seasonal mystery shopper job advertisement that turned out to be a scam. A resident in Scott County reported losing $2,000 to the scam. While there are reputable companies that do hire mystery shoppers, Beshear’s Office of Senior Protection recommends avoiding any ad, email or website that requires an advance payment to gain access to information on how to become a mystery shopper.
