I keep unsubscribing but they keep spamming me. I just retired after 40 years in the research business. Trust me, this ain't how real "research" works...

can't get them to shake loose over $300 of hard earned survey money. They say that this has not been "approved" by the company because I did not try the product, but no product was offered to try. I would steer very very clear of this group. They also refuse to answer my e mails on the subject after the first question

I got an email from them and first thing I did was look to see if it's a scam. I've found most of these surveys are more trouble than they are worth.

I think a huge problem with these sites is that people don't look through the fine print before they take the evaluation. I am extremely careful about it and it does read in Panda's emails that some have a cost, you have to give a credit card or sign up for a free trial. The ones that are free they say in the email that no credit card is required and also says that you won't get paid unless you actually get APPROVED for a credit card or complete the trial offers. It also says before you get started that you have to make $50 minimum before you can cash out.
With all of the scams out there it's our responsibility to do research and read fine print before yanking out the credit card and read the terms and conditions- ESPECIALLY if the offer seems to easy to be true (aka making $1000 just for taking surveys in a month)

Worst of the worst. Don't waste your time. You could spend most if not all of your time doing their so-called "surveys" which by the way are phishing schemes at best, and then you have to build up to at least a $50 level to be able to take funds out... and then when you request to be paid, they suddenly "reverse" the amount they initially approved. Then, to make matters even worse.... your measly little $7.00 won't even get paid. They ARE THE WORST !! RUN FROM THEM LIKE THE PLAQUE !! I KNOW !! I GOT BITTEN BY THEM !!

Panda Research is the worst!!! I implore everyone out there to run in the other direction if they see that name - its one big ripoff!!

Panda research is the worst paid survey company ever! I joined panda research back in June 2012.And first it seem really great because you get paid to complete offers and read emails and sometimes doing surveys but after I reached $13 they stop crediting me for offers I completed.I sent an email demanding to know what's up.And after 5 days they didn't reply back and sent them a second email complaining that's when they replied the next day.After I searched their F.A.Q I discovered that they want you to do their job for them by submitting a picture of all offers you complete. Talk about lazy! If you want my opinion if you want to make a couple of bucks do opinion outpost.They give you some drama from time to time by freezing your account for going too fast or forcing you to subming

I'm finding Panda Research to be a scam, ripoff and a waste of your time, I have an account balance of $95.06, and according to Victor there payment thresh hold for my area is $50.00, yet I've only been approved for $4.00 and that's been approved for since 2011... im thinking there not going to payout so im not doing anymore survey's with Panda Research until they pay out the money I am owed, and I advise all to do the same or stay away from them, because you will be like me, done invested hour's of your time paying your Internet bill and taking survey's working with for them, only to be find out there not going to pay you but keep giving excuses why you haven't gotten paid.

Avoid Panda at all costs - this is by far the worst of all the rewards and/or survey sites I have ever used.
I did get paid by Panda one time, and one time only. You see, at one time Panda Research used to offer a few cents if you clicked on the ads in the daily e-mails they sent. You'd click on one ad, get 5 cents. Click on another, get 10 cents. Click on another, get 15 cents. You get the idea.
After about one year of doing nothing but clicking on ads in e-mails and checking my account on the Panda site, I reached the golden $50 minimum that was required to cash out. I put in the request to cash out and was told that someone would have to call me to "verify" my info. About 2 weeks went by without a call. Finally I got hold of someone and verified my info...except for that the person I spoke with apparently did not tell their computer system that I verified it.
So, about a week after that I got a call from a totally different person at Panda - a snippy, brusque person - who said rather huffily that I needed to verify my info or I couldn't get paid. I told him I DID verify it. He didn't care. He seemed annoyed with ME, even though it was the Panda person I had spoken to who should have been to blame for my info not appearing.
After all of that mess I finally got my $50. The whole process -- from when I put in the cash out request to when I got the money in PayPal -- took over one month, and probably longer than that.
So, I continued to click on the ads in e-mails to earn another $50. After about a year or so, I was getting very close to the $50 cash-out point when - ALL OF A SUDDEN - Panda changed its 'rules' so that we were only allowed to cash out $25 in paid e-mail clicks...but we still had to have a total of $50 to cash out altogether.
In other words, Panda wanted us to earn $50 (and now is it $100??) to be able to cash out at all, BUT even if we earned that $50 legitimately through their paid e-mail clicks, they didn't want us to have all that we earned. They want to force their members to do surveys to earn that other $25. It is ridiculous. They switched the rules just before I was about to cash out, which I think is unfair and sleazy.
I wrote angry e-mails and letters to the fools at Panda. One of them actually said "We're a research company. That's what the name is - Panda Research" as an excuse for why they would no longer "allow" members to cash out $50 in paid e-mail clicks, even if it was fairly and legitimately earned. Why did they offer the paid e-mail clicks in the first place if all they wanted to be was a "research company"? Idiots.
Basically, they will do anything they can to delay paying you and make excuses for their crazy rules along the way. And they will make you do as much as possible - while trying to keep track of how much of your earned money you will be allowed to even receive - to earn anything.
Don't waste your time on this awful, awful joke of a company. I would never recommend them to anyone. There are so many other survey sites and rewards sites that treat their members better. I've had the fortune of using some of the good ones, and several of these places are just wonderful - they want to make sure their members get paid what they legitimately earned, and they don't apply such unrealistic restrictions to those earnings!

I did want to add I've been with pandareaseach since November and even though I've reached over $100.00 my verified amount has been $12.95 for over two months. No I don't believe they'll ever payout and most offers I have had to buy something which has turned out to be a disaster!

I don't understand this site at all. Why would you have to sign up for services to complete a survey?
2:20am on February 16th, 2013
After the initial sign in and survey Panda wants your credit/debit info. Gold and platinum rewards for stuff you don't want or need. Recently unemployed and new at the internet but not stupid. No scam is getting my savings

I ended up signed up with Direct TV because I didn't know I was required to. I got the $30 credit but had a hard time dumping Direct TV. They had plans to deliver and had taken $360 out of my account.

since starting the research I agree the surveys are great but the use of credit cards and then no confirmation its really not worth it at the end. If you do the survey get credit don't be forced to participate in offers you dont want I will be unsubscribing. Plus the people that call are very rude.
