HI! I am asking this because I have joined in mystery shopping. They told me that they usually charge 45 dollars to get started the introduction. But they told me that for a limited time they were holding off that fee. The only thing i paid was 2.95 to cover the expense of mailing the letter that i was going toget that had all the info and my ID# and screename for the internet. I have never been a mystery shopper so can anyone who has been one tell me if this is a scam from what they charge? Also is it normal that you need to apply for companies that hire the mystery shoppers or is it the company to do that for you. Thanks again.
