I discovered a bunch of mystery shoppers were purchasing from my online store today. Why?

I run a kids wetsuit business. Yesterday and today I noticed the names of many customers were unusual…. almost fake. I started to suspect something was up but I couldn't figure out what. So I called one of the buyers to ask where they heard about the wetsuit and she said "I can't discuss the details of my purchase because I'm under contract. I hope you understand". That freaked me out. WTF was going on? I tried a couple more but they dodged the question. Then finally one lady told me she was a mystery shopper – someone who is paid to buy from an online store and rate the experience. The question is, who would want to pay for that? My only hunch is that it's Facebook checking to see if I'm a reputable seller. Has anyone experienced mystery shoppers buying from their store?
