Fraud Alerts

It has come to our attention that certain unscrupulous individuals or organizations unaffiliated with Forrester are engaging in fraudulent activities that attempt to take advantage of Forrester’s brand and reputation. Please take note that the following schemes are not legitimate and are in no way associated with Forrester. We are listing them here in an effort to alert you to these activities.

Mail Fraud

Scammers are imitating Forrester and/or asserting that Forrester is associated with a Walmart “Secret Shopper” program. Forrester is in no way associated with these programs. Scammers are sending fraudulent solicitations, mostly via mail, under the pretense of having consumers evaluate the retail experience. This scam is accompanied by a fake check made out for a large sum of money and asks the recipient to cash the check and purchase Walmart gift cards. If you receive one of these solicitations, you should not cash the check under any circumstances.
