Very shady company

Having done several studies, surveys and product testing in the past, my experience with these kinds of projects and the companies conducting them was always positive, until I came across Forage Research. After being screened over the phone by a staff member of Forage Research, I was signed up for a study with the compensation method being cash. From that point on there were several email exchanges with a different staff member named Trena Partee (who holds herself out to be the founder of this company) regarding scheduling, location, pre-research homework, etc, whose communication style I did not find particularly squared away. Then, at the eleventh hour, I was informed by that staff-member/founder via email that the compensation method will not be cash after all. This change was labeled as an “oversight” and dubious explanation was provided as to the reason for that mishap. I replied by stating my disappointment and asking that Forage research adheres to the originally promised and greed upon method of payment. Not only Forage Research did not honor my request of them to stand by their original advertisement and promise, they weren’t even decent enough to issue a simple apology. Needless to say I chose to withdraw from their study and will never consider doing business with them again. As a mentioned above, such behavior is very much out of line when compared to other research companies’ I’ve dealt with in the past and is completely unprofessional. It is also important to mention that you will not find any address or contact information for this company, other than their very vague website.
