He says he was affiliated with Field Agent Brand Assessors. I was sent a message from a linkedin contact with a job description and a link to apply for a part time position. I was offered 300 dollars for each assignment completed as a Field Agent brand assessor. I was asked to shop in advance to purchases items on behalf of the company like iphones, a macbook, walmart gift cards and to send the items through FEDEX to the address of the company to a person called: James Dabira, for evaluation of the quality of the products and later I was sent a link to complete a survey form. I also purchased walmart gift cards and I was asked to send pictures with the numbers of those gift cards by text message, and later I was sent a link to complete a survey report about: 1) How long it took you to get services.
2) Smartness of the attendant
3)Customer service professionalism
4)What was your overall experience with the staff and store environment neatness?
Note: I filled out an application online where I had to enter my credit card number, my name, last name, email address, and phone number. Also was asked to let the person know when I arrived to the store and I was never provided upfront with all details of the assignment. I had to wait until the first part of the assignment was done to know what I had to do next. I was told the payment department of the company would reimburse me for the shopping expenses and that I would be paid the commission for completing each assignment to my credit card.
