Their website has social media links but all the links go to the homepage of the social media websites, instead of OptiNu Academy's page, which seems suspicious.

Recording congratulates you on "winning" a gift card which you must press 1 to speak with operator to process. I went through it 3 times. First two hung up after I told them I was responding from Craigslist about the eye exam. The third person tried to go ahead and process my "prize". Told her that wasn't why I called and that it must be a scam. She launched in to what was clearly a script about how it is not a scam because... advertising cost blah blah blah. The desperation in her voice said otherwise. Conclusion: Scam. Atleast the vision study doesn't seem to exist despite a very convincing website. Going to contact Craigslist.

I’m a clinical research recruiter myself, so I can’t help but look a little deeper into other research studies happening in our area.I can tell you right now that when I post about studies on any medium (printed flyers, social media, radio, newspaper, etc.), that I make sure the address and phone number is printed/posted CLEAR AS DAY and can’t be missed, otherwise I risk losing that potential applicant (which is something that no research recruiter can afford!).I’d have to say that this isn’t legitimate. And if it is legitimate, they need a different person running their recruiting department.removeOctober 12, 2019 at 11:47 AM by an anonymous user from: Kansas City, Missouri, United StatesDefinitely a scam!

Legally you can't post those private details after looking them up but anyone can look them up. I agree looks suspicious for a supposed real scientific study. Look it up and assess it for yourself. No one is named for a contact and it goes via a proxy.removeSeptember 24, 2019 at 7:15 PM by an anonymous user from: San Diego, California, United StatesI just opened one up in San Diego.

I saw the study posted in Miami. I called the number, no response. I sent a Fb message and got a prewar item response that didn’t answer any of my questions.removeAugust 7, 2019 at 10:02 AM by an anonymous user from: Reidsville, North Carolina, United StatesI am thinking it is bogus. Apparently, the site is only a few months old. I cannot find an actual address or location for them. I heard they had an ad on a Boston Craigslist, I personally have seen it on a local Greensboro, NC listing. Also, their number does not work, email refuses to send and their appointment inbox stays full for weeks now. The picture they use for one of their buildings is one located in NYC as well. The whole thing reaks of some kind of scam. I dunno if it is just to drive numbers to their site or what. If this was some legit academy and local to me I should have zero issue finding an address or listing.I also found it weird they posted 18 days ago on there, with a nice sum of money for completing the study, and 4 days ago they posted *again* and nearly doubled the money. Seems too good to be true.remove Show More Answers (43) Show all Answers Write Your Comment, Question, Answer, or Review NB: We will use your IP address to display your approximate location to other users.
