N.2 PandaResearch feels very strong about fraudulent activity. If there are any questions regarding these rules feel free to contact http://support.pandaresearch.com with your query and we will surely respond.
N.3, FRAUD USERS, Recently we have found that many of our users are creating fake accounts and using fraudulent credit cards to sign up for surveys. This is causing our sponsors to shut down their merchant accounts, and stop business with us sometime resulting in no payment. As a result, we will be paying all of our members 30 days after approval of the transaction so we have enough time to sift through the fraudulent users who cause this, with helpful information from our advertisers.
N.4, We will be taking legal action if we find any of our members having dummy accounts (more than one ) per house hold (as stated in our terms and conditions) or people using prepaid or fraudulent credit cards with our sponsors (advertisers). If you are found to have done any of the above stated points, your account will be terminated with all earnings being held, plus any necessary legal action.
N.5, Please remember this is may be only temporary as we make these changes to our system for you, so we can provide you with the best surveys and offers. If you have any questions about this policy, or you know a user who is committing fraud (like stated above) in our system, please contact http://support.pandaresearch.com/ and we will be happy to promptly reply to your query.
