Beware of "Mystery Shopper" Scam

Holiday shopping is coming to an end but the scams are still floating around.

The Better Business Bureau wants you to watch for a company called Master Research, which tricks consumers into wiring a three thousand dollar check to a bank in Canada, and then telling consumers to keep three hundred dollars for themselves.

But then the check bounces, leaving consumers out thousands of dollars.

Ads were posted on several popular websites promising easy money as a "mystery shopper."

The BBB says be weary of any check from an unfamiliar source.
