Being a "secret shopper" sounds like an easy way to make cash. Making easy money usually comes with a catch. In this case, it's you paying them. Robby Brand found this out the hard way.

Brand, 36, of Ladson, S.C., filled out a questionnaire to become a secret shopper and received a check and a letter in the mail for nearly $3,000. He was suspicious about the check, but went online to look up the company, A Closer Look. He says after reading through the website and seeing they had been around for 15 years, he decided it was legit.
