Rio Rancho Police warn about fake mystery shoppers scam


RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – Rio Rancho Police are warning about a scam offering to hire people as mystery shoppers.

The department says the scammers find applicants through Facebook and Craigslist, promising them a job assessing customer service at businesses.
