Helping companies define, measure and improve performance
Have you received a suspicious email about mystery shopping?
Have you received an unsolicited email from a company claiming to be RetailTrack? If so, beware. The name of RetailTrack Mystery Shopping & Consulting, along with other leading mystery shopping companies is being used by fraud artists. Most often, the job seems "too good to be true" and involves sending money through a wire transfer. This is a scam. While RetailTrack has clients in the financial industry, we have no assignments that require a wire transfer of funds. Check out these links for more information:
