GBW is highly reputable world-leading customer experience agency. Over the last 14 years we have conducted 4.8million in store evaluations for leading global and national brands in 53 countries.
Our global name and experience has attracted some unwanted attention. For example, from time to time, fraudsters have sent emails claiming to be from GBW. These fraudulent emails have attempted to illegally and unethically solicit personal and/or financial information from unsuspecting people. These emails may also include offers of employment that in reality do not exist.
GBW endeavours to protect our Mystery Shoppers from these fraudulent acts, by alerting consumers and working with the relevant law enforcement authorities to prevent and prosecute the offenders. .
It is important to note that GBW Mystery Shoppers can only pick up mystery shopping jobs by going through our Shopper Portal, which requires Shopper ID and Password verification.
If you receive a suspicious email that claims to be from GBW, here's what you should do:
