Allianz has become aware that individuals have been contacted via text message to their cell phones and offered a job as customer service analyst or mystery shopper for Allianz. Initially, they were asked to forward personal details to email addresses using the domain allianzsurvey.net. Subsequently, the prospects were asked for further information, tasks were assigned to them and cheques were forwarded to them.
