It's amazing, and rather amusing, to read all of these comments posted here about this company... over an absolute refusal (similar behavior seen in children experiencing temper tantrums) to spend a FEW minutes of your time to take a SURVEY.

This company (usually) calls at late hours to reach you during a relaxed mindset.

I've only noticed one actual comment that says they took the survey, and guess what?
They admitted that this company was NOT some scam, or telemarketer.

"Well, I did finally answer the phone and take the survey. It was about local media including TV, radio, and newspapers. They had specific names and stations in my area in their survey. It took about 15 minutes. I refused to answer the questions about income and value of my home, and hung up. BUT today I received an envelope in the mail (did not give them my mailing address) and it contained a survey about shopping, a television diary, and a $5 bill!

I kinda like the idea of having an influence on my local media, so I think I'll do it.

Your hostility and paranoia towards their calls are completely unnecessary. You have a job during the daytime, right? Those market interviewers calling you? This is THEIR job. Why are deliberately making their job more difficult than it has to be? Do I need to make the comparison again of how much this behavior resembles a CHILD'S temper tantrum? Bratty, spoiled, and obnoxiously entitled behavior.

"I am on the Texas and National NO CALL LISTS"
So? You live here. You cannot be privileged to live here without giving anything back LOL
The state (/nation or WORLD) does not owe you anything. YOU do.

...And really? This comment below seriously made me want to beat my head against my keyboard or a wall.

"Yes, they have called us numerous times and finally got my husband to answer about 10 minutes of detailed personal questions. What an invasion of privacy. Their names are:

Gabriel and Griselda Patlan
277 Addax Drive
San Antonio, TX 78213-3928

I used the Free Phone Tracer but paid for premium service to gather more info.

Very weird that a research group would use these people. On facebook they look like hoods... giving the middle finger with the gangster look.... kinda strange if you asked me.

They could be a scam for break ins... who knows

I believe that they are SINISTER... so beware!

^ Oh yes... because if you pay for information on the internet, it MUST be true! -__- There's many Gabriel Patlan names on Facebook! How do you know which one he is? LOL

All of this just proves to me that most of the American population are stuck in a teenage mentality.
Please do the rest of us, those that have truly matured, a favor and play in traffic instead of trying to associate with the adults. Thank you :-)

Scarborough has a proven reputation in the business of media research as they provide their findings to global companies such as Nielson.

I do have a life. One I would guess is much, much more fullfilling, financially rewarding, and interesting than your life. Which, by the way, I do hope ends slowly and painfully, and soon!

Don't get upset, nobody will miss you.

Allow me to enlighten you:

You are a scumbag. Every puss filled piece of crap that works for this hack company is a scumbag. Since I do have "a life", I have many, many tasks and events that I would rather participate in than spend one more second wasting my time checking to see that my caller ID block is, in fact, blocking scumbags like...you! For instance, instead of answering the scarborough research call tonight (this is the end of the second month of daily calls) I dug my fingers deep in between my back pockets and scratched an itch. It felt great! Then I smelled them and they smelled like... scumbag! Get it? That's you!

Here's a list of all the exec's at Scarborough. Please email them over, and over, and over with helpful suggestions like that they all die of cancer. Have fun!

bcohen@scarborough
sseraita@scarborough
dmorisie@scarborough
hgoldberg@scarborough
gmeo@scarborough
glindner@scarborough
dmcfarland@scarborough
dreifer@scarborough
cgreenblatt@scarborough

All of these are of course followed by a dot com. Enjoy!!!

Scarborough Research gets a 1 star review because a zero star review is not an option. Contrary to what the previous poster attempted to get across, it is NOT alright to call people repeatedly after being asked to stop. I was never given the option of contacting an 800 number to stop the onslaught of calls from the rude and pushy Scarborough Research employees. Why should I have to make the EXTRA effort to stop the annoying and unwanted calls into MY home? Shouldn't the company do that when asked? I don't want the easy "mu-lah". I want Scarborough Research to respect my wishes in my home.

ok so yea ive been called repeatedly by this co. too but nothing they are doing is illegal or constitutes any "legal action" as some under educated individuals may think. (but if you guys feels that strongly go ahead & hire an atty im sure he'll appreciate the easy money)

So heres the 411 on research companies, allow me to enlighten you ....
YES --- they have the right to contact you, Yes even at 10pm.
NO --- they do not follow the Do Not Call List Registry regulations because they are Not a telemarketing co., nor are they solicitors (they Cant sell you anything). Plus "unlisted/private #s" are still called because research companies generate the phone numbers they call randomly, they dont have a list of #s. Yes, there is a difference.
NO --- they Do Not put you on any kind of mailing list either, By LAW they must keep all info personal and confidential. So you are guaranteed not to get any junk mail because you did a survey.
NO --- its not harassment (get a life), if you'd ever take the time to ask them to take your # out of their database, they will happily give you the 800 #. NO, the caller can Not delete your # themselves its against the industry's regulations. YES, you have to call yourself (dont be a lazy AZZ). if the phone calls bother you that much you'll call and request to have your # deleted. But dont WHINE like a child because they still call you - you know what has to be done to make the calls stop. ----- OR just DO THE damn SURVEY, that stops the calls too. PLUS THEY PAY YOU once you've done it. But they dont tell you that until you're done. HINT HINT. WINK WINK.

PLUS, per consumer research industry regulations, which are monitored by the government, they can NOT release or distribute ANY of your information to ANYONE. even the responses you give to the questions are not identified by information. All they do is group your answers/opinions/info with others, in your same age or income range, race and gender for example.

Pros: EASY MU-LAH PPL!!

Cons: TAKES 10-15 MINUTES, BIG WHOOP!! SOME IDIOTS TAKE THAT LONG TO ORDER FAST FOOD OR PICK LOTTO TICKETS....

Like other people, I have been HARASSED by this company with phone calls, every weekday at 6:15 p.m. for several months. They are not covered by the national do not call list (a "research company") but I have asked, politely, that they not call.
I have a relative in critical care in the hospital and told them that this past Friday, 10/10/08 when they made their daily call at 6:15 p.m. and "Chad" said: "That's okay. Is there someone else at this number who can take the survey?" !!

I AM ASKING ANYONE WHO RECEIVES A CALL FROM THIS COMPANY TO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THEM, PLEASE!

Cons: PHONE HARASSMENT

i have repeatedly asked this company not to call my home. they said i should call the opt out line if i do not want to receive their calls. i pay for my telephone service not scarborough. if i tell someone not to call my home and they continue to do so then that constitutes harrassment. i don't know what to do. it seems like a legal issue to me.
