DO NOT USE YOUGOV! IT IS A SCAM! Waiting for & chasing payment since November. They do not reply to emails. On the rare occasion that they have replied they just say they will look into it & get back to you but then you hear nothing. I would AVOID this company at all costs. I think its safe to say now I will not be receiving my payment. The surveys are time consuming & payment is non existent. Its all a BIG CON.I feel like a complete fool for falling for an internet scam. DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AS ME.

Reading the negative reviews on this site, I have to agree with the sentiments expressed. Yes, it does take an age to accumilate sufficient points to qualify for a pay out and surveys co-incidentally, tend to dry up just before the pay out limit is reached. They are not alone in this though. All the popular survey sites seem to work to this principle, it is almost as if it is an unwritten industry rule.

If you've never heard of YouGov then listen to some of the national news bulletins. Sooner or later you'll hear the words, "In a YouGov survey most people thought...." However, I must admit that when I first joined the site I was a bit disappointed. There didn't seem to be many surveys available and it took a long time to reach the payout level of £50. In fact it was so slow that after the first payout it took me another four years before I was paid again. Surveys weren't sent all that regularly and they were mostly worth 50 points, the equivalent of 50p. The payout level needs to be 5000 points. Last year, in 2012 the site seemed ...

I've been a member now for several years, and only just hit the $100 reward level - which I claimed - 6 months ago. Not only have I never received the promised check, I can't get any email response to my inquiries about it......although, my inbox is still regularly filled with available surveys. What a waste of time.

After almost 3 years, I finally earned 5,000 points. When I chased a month later, they said I would get the cheque in 7 - 10 days. Since then, they've stopped responding.They don't have a number - so no other way of contacting them.Anyone know where their registered address is ?
