A lot of people are asking “is Pinecone Research a Scam?”. The answer is a big NO. Pinecone research is not scam. It is a legitimate market research survey company owned by Nielsen.
However, please note that some scammers are using pinecone research’s name to scam people. This scam is related to mystery shopping where scammers send you a check and ask you to deposit the check to your bank.
This has been confirmed by pineconeresearch that they are not sending any such checks to their members. Pinecone research will only send you paid surveys and sometime products to test at home. Pinecone pays $3 per survey not $300-500 as claimed by some scammers!!
So, if you receive any such check you can simply ignore. If you are not a pinecone research panel member and want to join pinecone, you can join pinecone research here.
Please leave a comment below if you have received such checks.
