Smartlab is a scam!!!
"Want to be rewarded for sharing your opinions on a wide variety of products and services within a diverse set of industries? SmartLAB is the place for you! We are currently recruiting totally awesome people like yourself to participate in our ongoing research panel!"
So I clicked the link and filled out the survey.
I got to the page where I was given the "virtual high five" for qualifying to be in their panel. I then agreed not to disclose anything, and the last page asked me for my contact info (i.e. address, phone, etc..) as they said they sometimes send things to panelists to try (which, at that point, was 96% of the screener done). I then hit next and it says:
"Thank you for your interest, but unfortunately you don't fit the criteria to participate in the SmartLAB Panel. Thank you for your time!"
So, they basically tell me I qualify in order to get my email address and home address, phone number, age, etc... and then say I don't qualify, and kick me out.
Sounds like a bait and switch, and this isn't a panel, it's a way to gain people's info so they can sell it.
