What IS a mystery shopper, anyway? I hear that and think of someone who goes out and gets you something and then brings it to you and you're all, "Well, I didn't really NEED a leather foot stool and a bag of celery, but, you know, thanks."

It's actually a type of scam that the Owensboro Police Department has been made aware of and has issued a warning ABOUT:

It kind of reminds me of those computer viruses that hijack your computer until you deposit some money into a secret account or something.

Anyway, as always, there are many ways lowlifes will try to get at us in this day and age and technology only helps them along.

Be careful.
