Beware Web Survey Scams

Many people have thought how great it would be to take surveys to make a small extra money. The problem is that so many of them are not what they claim to be. They will either do not provide the money promised, or out of the box so often the case, they are actually just looking for the way to get personal contact information, which they will target marketing companies. Which is how they make their own money and there is nothing for you personally at their websites. Internet survey scams are making promises but not providing anything to those who thought that answering a few questions might bring in some additional money.

Another type of internet survey scams get individuals to pay a small charge to access the research in their system. This kind of usually seems acceptable to most people because the companies never request a large sum. People change their minds once they learn, once the charge is paid, that the studies that have been made available to them are ones that do not pay out anything. Not only that but they may be surveys that can be found in other places that give entry for free.

One of the ways that internet survey frauds look real is simply by having testimonials on their websites from pleased participants. These testimonies are, of course, artificial. But, they give the survey website the appearance of authenticity and success that can bring in willing patients of the scams. There are also sweepstakes survey web sites where you earn items per survey depending on how much of it you get through. Some participants do not need to answer the questions based on earlier solutions. The persons final prize is far off because the points you need to get gifts or money are very high. If you want to try a survey website be sure to perform careful research before signing up.

    I have a job, but I need to make some extra income. My work schedule is pretty random, so taking a second job is kind of out of the question. I know people make money online, but everything I seem to run across is a scam! I am open to pretty much anything, thanks for your help and ideas!
    More specific? I have heard of people grading papers for schools, writing papers for people, etc. I don’t want to invest any money.

    Someone I know is home bound and unable to work, but she has a pc and the net. Can you think of a way in which she could earn money using the Internet? She is absolutely dirt poor and has no one to turn to for help.

    my friend got caught in a scam. he took an internet survey on his favorite magazines that automatically signed him up for 5 of them without him knowing this. He sent them back when he started to receive them and after a month of fighting was told he had to pay or the account would be sent to collections. Out of desperation not to damage his credit he agreed to pay. Can that agreement be honored if he never gave informed consent for the product in the first place and has never taken receipt?

    I’ve been trying to find a part time job in my county (seriously, COUNTY) for about 6 months now and nothing has turned up. I’m now turning to the internet to try to make legitimate money from where ever I access my computer and internet. I’m at my wits end and if anyone has had any luck making real money without surveys, scams, fees or anything of that sort, I’d appreciate some help. I’m best at data entry, creative writing, product reviews, blogging about social concerns and the likes. But I am always willing to learn something new.

    I am a stay at home mom of 2 girls. I need some good advice, and something that really works and is not a rip off to make decent money (or better) by working at home and thats convenient and perfect for someone like me? I have tried “getting paid” to do surveys over the internet, that swore you would make an awesome income, and it was the biggest scam ever. any good advice?

    Everything I’ve tried to do to make some extra money on line ends up to be a scam! Is there anything that truly works? I am trying to resolve my debt so I can leave a thankless, cheating wife.
    Thank you.

    hey guys, i am in need of some internet software for administering a survey to a group of people, less than 50 in size. my question is: is there a site that offers surveying capabilities, for free, that are comprehensive and not too bogged down with advertisements? or would i be better off just writing my own quiz in html/php? thanks

    I recently came across this internet job which says u have to fill surveys & u earn money for each survey u fill. I am thinking of doing it, but I am not sure that I would really get paid or not.

    Only people who have done this job answer.
