There are many reports concerning Vindale research, but I have not read one concerning what they have done to me...I have sent the following e-mail to them and to everyone else that I can think of.
Attention Vindale Research People -
Why do you keep taking money from me?????? I have worked very hard for the large amounts of money because I need the money to keep my bills on. My gas was shut off Friday so I have NO hot water now. I know that you at Vindale do not care.
I completed the Direct TV survey for the 100.00, paid the 80.00 to switch from Comcast to Direct TV, even referred a friend to Direct TV, and you took the $100.00 out of my pending area. Just took it. No explanation, nothing, just took $100.00 after I had done everything that was require. There is absolutely no sign of it in there anymore.
Then I logged in and there was another $40.00 missing. Where did that go????
Now, you have taken my $40.00 away (or maybe it was $30.00) from my book club survey. I again, completed all of the requirements and joined the club, with the no money that I have just to earn something from you. My bank account has been over drawn several times due to the book club (that is suppose to bill me but decided to just take the money out of my account) me trying so hard to earn money. Every single time that I participate in something that could earn me real money, you people "wipe it out". I have just cancelled my book account (that I only joined to make money from you) and that is even gone!!! I have bought the required amount of books and then cancelled just before this e-mail to you.
Have you ever been turned in to the BBB as scam artists??????? What do you want me to do??? I have tried and tried and tried with you people.
I have made copies of all pertinent information from your site because I am certain that you will "wipe me out" of it when you get this e-mail.
