Lonely people looking to get a lot of spam in their internet mailbox will benefit greatly from paidsurveys.com. This site is merely a portal to “hundreds” of other internet survey sites that promise you everything from the moon to a $1.
If you decide to join this site, expect to receive up to 40 e-mails a day from a variety of online survey companies. Some of them legitimate, others not. It will be up to you to figure out. A better way to decide which online survey companies you wish to participate in is to do a little legwork yourself.
Paidsurveys.com is open to anyone in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada who is at least 18 years old. They promise a free membership and access to 30 different companies that will pay you cash and “prizes” for participating in online surveys right from your home.
Although the site promises security and privacy, I made the mistake of joining and began receiving e-mails from virtually every known site in the world that offered me money, prizes and trips simply for filling out a questionnaire. They do not offer to send you to corporations that “spend billions of dollars a year” finding out what the average Joe is thinking, they merely flood your inbox with hundreds of e-mails from different survey companies.
One of the scariest things about this site is the offer to do “data work from home.” Anyone with an IQ over 60 can smell this scam. It is the internet equivalent to “stuffing envelopes from home.” It usually requires an upfront fee to “connect” the participant with people who are just dying to pay big bucks for someone to type all day into their computer. It’s a scam. And an old one, at that.
There are approximately over 500 internet sites that offer people “cash” for participating in surveys from home. Many of them are legitimate. You can usually tell these sites by their disclaimer that you will not “get rich” off of them and they normally tell you up front about what you can expect to earn and how you will receive your earnings.
Other sites simply exist to get your information so they can sell it to telemarketers. If you are taking a survey and frequently directed to different websites where you are asked about receiving a quote for health insurance, do yourself a favor and click out immediately. In the month that I’ve been participating in online surveys, I have received (and I’m not exaggerating here) at least 10 calls from people who want to sell me health insurance. One afternoon I received two calls, fifteen minutes apart, from the same company. Unless you are really desperate to talk to people on the phone or get e-mail from strangers promising you riches, stay away from these type of sites.
Paidsurveys.com is merely an information gathering website that will give your e-mail address and telephone number to a variety of different companies, all of whom will want to sell you something. If you are looking for a way to make money online, do so at a legitimate site. Check out the website, read as much of the information carefully before signing up and beware of any site that promises that you will get rich overnight. You will not make a living doing surveys at home. This is merely a way to supplement your income and buy a few extras. There are plenty of legitimate sites out there. Paidsurveys.com is not one of them.
