    Is "On Demand Research" a legal company or a scam?

    I received an invitation to complete a survey about the angry birds to get a $20 gift card from ITunes. Is this a scam or something true. How can I know in the future if a company or a person is trying to fool me, is there a website to verify it? This is the address http://survey.ondemandresearch.com/

    "Take Surveys. Make Extra Cash. Earn up to $25000 in cash and prizes by joining our panel!" "Want to Refer Your Friends to OnDemand Research? You could win $1000." Sounds a bit shakey, so many of the survey sites are getting you to sign up for trials or selling your info off. These guys do say no purchase required, I suppose there could be a legit research company using prizes for compensation, I'd rather be paid a straight sum to participate in a local focus group in person. Same offer elsewhere http://www.classifiedads.com/free_stuff-ad15392773.htm Not many complaints, these are 2009 comments. Unverified suspicions http://www.surveyseeker.net/2009/09/22/ondemand-research-scam/ "I can't do this Ondemand research registrations is too long. This is ridiculous." "Thanks for your input. We were unaware of the issue up until now. We have removed OnDemand Research from the list." http://www.mooladays.com/2009/06/28/a-list-of-get-paid-to-take-paid-surveys-online/

    • Ondemand is a scam, I took 5 surveys and downloaded the forms mailed 3 of them in they never sent me any gift cards everytime I email them asking they tell me they are busy or resubmit claim forms because they never received them, its been 4 months now and I never got anything,I can't imagine 3 claim forms getting lost in the mail, they are full of **** ,do yourself a favor spread the news about on-demand so others don't get screwed

    • I have finally received my PetSmart card for $25.00 but it took a while and many emails. Apparently they wait until the end of the following month to process therefore my survey in august was processed end of sept. and not mailed out til October! Hey, I got it though!

    • I just received my $25.00 VISA gift card after nearly six months of back and forth until last week when I threatened to seek legal relief then I got some action. Can't say if it's a total scam or not but my experience with some of these survey sites has been pretty good overall. Some have folded up their tents and disappeared into the woodwork but I keep earning some cash, gift cards, etc. Takes a lot of time but I don't have anything better to do unless someone knows of a legit stay-at-home job that pays real money and not one of these "See how I became a zillionaire overnight" deals. Good luck folks! Peace!

    • I've taken 10 of their surveys, each time they provided with the exact same confirmation number, I mailed back the paper they sent me with required information, I have written them, emailed them several times, they won't even respond, they apparently are not legit.
