Tips for Identifying the Real Paid Survey Sites vs. Scammers
Advances in technology have provided the avenue for persons to make money online from the comforts of their own home. One of the avenues now available is through paid surveys. With this method persons are actually compensated either in cash or kind for completing surveys. While many may speculate whether or not this is true or legitimate, it is. The problem is that there are many websites which use this money making opportunity to scam persons out of their money. The aim then is to identify these scammers and steer clear of their websites.
Here are a few things you can use to identify scammers for paid surveys
One Time Registration Fee : Most of these websites tend to have a onetime registration free which they say is for administration purposes. You may even find that many of these sites have many testimonials of satisfied customers and they most time sound very sincere. This is however a plot to lure you in and scam you. As a result, steer clear of these websites charging you $34.95, $45.95 or whatever the amount may be for signing up.
The Information You’re Paying for is Free : Many of these scammers promise you a list of reputable survey sites if you choose to pay the fee and while some will actually provide you with a list. However, this is a list that you can find for yourself how to get money online. As a result, don’t be fooled, there are many free survey sites available with a list of reputable sites that you can use to earn some extra income.
Sell Your Information to Marketing Companies : There is also the scam where you provide these companies with your personal information at a cost of course and they promise to sell your information to marketing companies. However, what they do is to give your information to a lot of telemarketing companies who will soon be calling you to sell you something. You may also realise that after taking this offer your inbox begins to receive more spam and the junk mail at your home also increases. This is just a scam and therefore you should do your best to avoid these websites.
Too Good to Be True : The next thing that you will need to look out for is those sites with offers which are too good to be true. For instance, promising that you can make a full time income from just completing surveys online or promising that you’ll make over $7000 a week from this venture alone. While paid surveys can give you some income, it will not be able to replace your income and while there are surveys which can give you a few hundreds, they are only available to persons who qualify based on things like demographics.
