    Does anyone know if UK Consumer Panels is legit?

    Does anyone know if UK Consumer Panels is legitimate? They're offering at home product testing jobs promising "15-20 hours per week with an hourly pay of between £14/hr. and £19/hr."

    I'm really tempted, but I've no idea whether I should trust them or not. Has anyone here ever tried to get work this company? Has anyone ever heard anything about them?

    It appears that https://www.gov.uk/government/organi...ompanies-house has never heard of them.

    I also noticed the dates on these two webpages; 25APR2015 and 1JAN2016. Per the domain registration at https://www.godaddy.com/whois/results.aspx?=uk-consumer-panels.com;

    The website didn't exist until 2MAY2016. So if the dates on those two webpages are correct then they were written before, 13 months before in one case, the website was even registered.

    I also noticed that they paid extra money for a private domain registration (Domains by Proxy). If your going to put your name, address, and phone number on your website. Why pay extra to hide that information on the domain registration?

    Their trademark doesn't appear to be registered in the UK either. They do use the ® symbol next to that phrase in a number of places on their website.

    Thanks, nomaxim - I appreciate that detective work. I guess they'd better be avoided :/
