  • Phish of the Day’ – a new online service reporting false Market and Social Research (MSR) activities (launching July 2018).

What is Phish of the Day?

Phish of the Day is a new service run by AMSRO that will provide updates on incidences of non-genuine market and social research that are reported AMSRO. This includes face to face, telephone, and online research.

A majority of ‘fake research’ is undertaken to sell products or services. Our members’ agencies operate under strict privacy and ethical guidelines (*see here for more information).  AMSRO member agencies are not permitted to sell or promote products or services under the guise of research.

AMSRO members are encouraged to report [details] of any research contact you have received that you believe might not be genuine and we will post an alert on the Phish of the Day page if it does not appear to us to be legitimate market or social research.
