In the early 2000's, my old party-favors dealer had a real live representative of the "Neilsen Company" knock on his door about becoming a Neilsen family. It involved wiring a box to his TV. He agreed. Why not? He wanted to save Family Guy.

A month later, he was raided by the DEA. After making bail and going home, he noticed that the agents had ripped the "Neilsen box" off his TV. It was a covert surveillance device. Later on in court documents, they referred to the information it provided as an "anonymous informant". The "Neilsen Box" issue required a separate hearing, the DEA denied any knowledge of its existence. The judge ruled it could not be mentioned in front of a jury.
