Most paid surveys are scams; I have compiled a list of the websites to stay away from. The most important thing to remember is:
If you have to pay to join, it IS a scam. You don’t pay for surveys, they pay you.
I want to clear up some common misconceptions about paid surveys. The most important is that you CANNOT expect to quit your job to sit around the house all day and fill out surveys. The legitimate websites focus on your age and other information you include about yourself when registering.
After registering, you will receive surveys to fill out. People of certain ages like middle aged women for example, will generally receive more surveys than someone who is older. The point being is that you will not be able to fill out surveys to your hearts content. You must wait for them to be sent to you, and you will only get a few from time to time.
You cannot expect to get rich just by answering a bunch of questions. The most you will get filling out surveys, if you put the time in, is enough money for a couple free dinners for you and your wife per month. If you have the free time to put into surveys then go for it!
From my personal experience, I know of one legitimate website for paid surveys: acop.com- American Consumer Opinion.
acop.com is a member of the BBB (Better Business Bureau), and have an outstanding reputation for being legitimate.
These are the scam survey websites to STAY AWAY from!
netpaidsurveys.net, paidsurveysetc.com, expresspaidsurveys.com, surveys4checks.com, surveyscout.com, paidsurveysonline.com, highestpaidsurveys.com, survey-broker.com, maximumpaidsurveys.com, quickpaidsurveys.com, international-incomes.com, paidsurveysystem.com, survey-bank.com, bigcashsurveys.com, paid-surveys-at-home.com, top-paying-surveys.com, paidsurveysplus.com, instantpaidsurveys.com, cashsurveysonly.com, and surveysathome.org.
A lot of these websites are owned by the same scammers, so when one gets a bad name they create a whole new one. I included every scam survey site I could find online to warn you to STAY AWAY.
What do all these websites have in common? They all want you to pay a “fee” to access a database of surveys to fill out. This is complete BS and you will never receive the money you are promised.
As Always, SAVE YOUR MONEY!
