Charging for Cash Mobs

I just received an email from one of our favorite organizers in Oregon. She spoke with a friend who owns a business in a neighboring town. The store owner said that an individual promoter had come to them about organizing a Cash Mob. He offered this for a price as part of a promotional/marketing package. You can guess the rest – the mob was “postponed” indefinitely and has yet to take place.

Cash mobs are not designed for the organizers to earn money. Organizers do it for the love of their communities and the positive changes that they want to see. If you own a store and someone approaches you about organizing a cash mob in exchange for pay, do NOT agree!!! Get their contact information and let us know about it.

We are getting information about this instance in Oregon and will let you know if anything can be done. Meanwhile, hopefully this person is stopped, and perhaps the business should receive a mob to help them recover the money they were cheated of?

    That is terrible! There is always a bad seed no matter what! I am so glad you posted this if not for anything else just to alert store owners, because if this person gets away with this they will surely try it again! We are CASH MOB Vacaville and so far we have mobbed 4 businesses and are going strong. Thanks for all you help and support!

    This is just all wrong. I have been asked on many occasions if there is a membership fee and I have told them NO, I do not charge because I believe in ‘Shopping Local’. They ask me why I do it at no charge and I told them I just like to help promote the community and local businesses.
