Many things that turn out to be scams in the eyes of some are not scams at all in the eyes of others.
A case in point was brought out in another thread that came out today RE the FTC cracking down on Scams. One was an info product about mystery shopping.
I was going to post what I have below in that thread but decided I didn't want to hijack the thread by focusing on another subject.
Do you know of any other legit businesses or services that are perceived as scams by some while working out great for others? Below is my OP that I moved here.
Someone had a WSO a few years back on Mystery Shopping. I always wondered if Mystery Shopping was legit.
I don't know what the ones in the OP claimed you could make but I do know it is a legit "job." I say job but a mystery shopper is really a self employed independent contractor.
Over the past year I was made aware by a couple of friends that they are mystery shoppers.
Just last week in one day one of them ate at Two different restaurants (for free) and shopped at a local electronics store and made almost $100.
