I have been offered a job as a "Secret Shopper" at Kroger! You read right. The Cat has been offered a paying gig. Never mind that I've never set paw into a supermarket and TW tells me we don't even have Kroger in our 'hood. The gig offers mucho dinero so I'm in!
Look at this amazing offer I received via e-mail on Friday! It's hard to hide my excitement. As usual, TW is trying to rain on my parade by telling me that this isn't legit. She says if it looks too good to be true; it prolly is too good to be true. What could go wrong? $200-400 per assignment and I can shop any products—i.e. cat food, treats, litter, luncheon meat—I want at my designated store.
Again, TW tells me we don't have a Kroger nearby. I counter by axing her if she's ever heard of Photoshop? She can just 'shop me into a plagiarized image of a Kroger store. Easy peasy.
She says they may want to see a cash register receipt. I don't believe that. The e-mail says I can shop at a competitor too. I can show 'em a ShopRite or Acme receipt. The peeps have plenty of those. What's the harm in clicking the "sign up" link and providing all the information they require? It's not like I have a real Social Security number or PayPal account. I can made 'em up. I'm a hood cat so I ain't gonna give them yours or anything. They'll never know. Hey, they were dumb enough to send this job offer to a cat so they ain't gonna wise up now.
|I'm here! Can't wait to start "secret shopping!"|
Whadda you mean they can't pay me without a real PayPal account? They can mail a check to the the p.o. box that you'll be getting me for that purpose. They'd better pay me if'n I'm working for them! If they don't, that's fraud and I'll prostitute them to the full extent of the law.
I want to make a difference by helping Kroger's shoppers get better service and products. Cats who shop Kroger need to be able to buy brands like Weruva, Tiki Cat, Wellness, etc. at their local store at low, competitive prices. I'll bet they don't even stock those brands now. CK is a smart consumer.
What say you, my readers? Isn't this a fine offer for a cat to make a few bucks AND get some tasty noms? TW says there are no "secret shoppers" and it's not even a secret that this is a scam. Do you get these great offers in your e-mail box that your peeps put the kabosh on before you can hit "send"?
