    I don’t know what site you guys got on but I just got selected myself for the Lazy-Spa hottub and they sent it out in 3 days. I have it set up in my kitchen today and am waiting for the water to heat up. Didn’t even pay vat, no credit card/bank details NOTHING. Seriously these guys rock. I have picture, video, etc to prove it. You can email meif you want but these guys rock! Yeah you get some spam in your spam folder and have to decline offers but it’s no big deal. Hit me up if you have questions justinblack@myself.com

    Beware – circular scam.
    My wife was sucked in by the allure of “testing the new Dyson cleaner”. But just I case things were not as they seemed, we set up a code in our registration info so that we would know if our contact info was being missused. OK so they say data will be passed on to others – fair enough, even though it is buried within pages of privacy terms. What I am concerned about are the bogus phone calls we keep getting that immediately turn over to a recorded message as soon as you answer the phone. The recording applogises for missing you but then invites you to callback on the quoted number. If you perform a reverse number lookup, you will find a filing cabinate full of complaints from people being charged premium rates when they call back only to be greeted by yet another recorded message quoting “technical difficulties” as the reason they can’t take your call. It’s a circular SCAM.

    So far in the space of a week, we have received 37 nuisance calls trying to sell us products ranging from double glazing, internet packages, PPI and other financial services….even Guide Dogs for the blind held out their unwanted begging bowl. All of these items we ticked as ‘not interested in’ during their so called life style surveys.

    Now having built up a comprehensive list of barred numbers, they still continue to get through. So we have resorted to new tactics. When they ask for the name we used on the registration (part of the code we used), we say ” hang on a minute” and just lay the phone down and walk away. Funny thing is there is rarely anyone on the other end when we eventually get back to the call. This may be a bit risky if they ever find a way to charge you for receiving calls!!

    The other approach is to ask up front “what are you selling”, and the usual answer is “nothing”. Well if they are not selling, don’t know me, and were not invited to call, there’s no reason to continue!!! The message is slowly getting through and the rate of calls is slowly reducing. The people in the call centres are only doing a job and may not even be aware of the scams their bosses have set up to get your numbers, but this is the point ….they are human and even they have their breaking point. You just have to find it. I hope my number will find its way onto their barred list soon.

    We entered into the survey expecting hassel and setup messures to combat things accordingly, but please just steer clear of these misleading adds. While they possibly do hand out just enough ‘test samples’ to be legal, their business is selling your details to cold callers and justify the approaches they make to you on the strength of the Survey you completed. Please avoid these offers of product testing.

    My credit card has been debited with £29 of which i have no idea what it is or where(or whom) its come from. The description is EMGServiceAps FrederiksbergDNK. When i contacted my credit card company, the lady told me that looking at this address. Quizonaut is associated to them. I actually had to pay £1 to get OFF the website/page cos nothing I did would close it. I then saw in the small print that this was a subscription which you could cancel AFTER 24hrs but within 5 days. This i did but it looks like I’ve been duped, despite them assuring me that everything had been cancelled in time, all details removed etc. Codswallop!Now it looks as if I’ll have to cancel my credit card just so that they can’t take the money again next year. Has anyone anywhere got a telephone number to contact them please?
    I’ve now got to the stage where i do not answer my house phone as i know it’s going to be one of these companies calling, despite my entering NO TO EVERYTHING & deleting my phone number wherever it appeared. They don’t care, they still ring you!

    I entered this site and provided my address, mobile number and email address. I’m really scared now and want to know if the spam email and cold calls ever did stop for you? Btw, after receiving an email after registering asking to validate my account I blocked the address and did not even open the email. Someone please respond, thank you.

    how to get rid of product testing… its so infuriating …messeges to confirm for lottery and prizes comes even in our phone messages like a dust bin … for example funprize.com and juicy win.com they send spam via different no. like juicywin by 60071 and 60083 whereas prizefun.com by 60083 …. the interesting thing you see is both the website has the same hotline no. 02035030953 .. Another interesting thing is …inorder to UNSUBSCRIBE funprize.com it says type STOP and send to 60083 WHEREAS juicywin.com type STOP and send to 85559…….what you see here is the message of juicywin.com was send from no. 60071 and 60083 WHEREAS prizefun.com from 85559. …. can you see the fraud play !

    • David says:

      Not at all. I’ve always said that people do indeed get the prizes. Did you actually read the article before accusing someone of being a liar?

    […] My original post, where I revealed the truth behind ProductTesting.uk.com, has become one of the most read articles on my site and has garnered a huge amount of feedback. What’s certainly true is that the only people with something positive to say are those who’ve actually received a product to review. I always knew that they would actually be giving out products – what is clear is the methods use to confuse people into thinking they’re guaranteed to get one in exchange for signing up to a lot of spam email. Spam email, it should be noted, that is difficult to stop. […]
