Paid Survey Scams - What you need to know

Paid Survey Scams - What you need to know

There is no such thing as paid surveys. Most of us get easily hooked on earning money using these paid survey sites. Paid survey sites may pay you a pittance for completing surveys. Most sites look very organized and professional but these are most likely to be scams. Here is what you need to know about Paid Survey Scams

- You should not have to pay a registration fee or membership fee to take a survey

- Never give your credit card number when you make payments

- Even though the site specifies that the payment is a one time fee, there is no guarantee that it is; victims warn that they were repeatedly charged membership fees. There are some scam sites though that offers a money back guarantee.

- If you get a genuine paid survey site, then it a great work at home job.

- Testimonies are not always true. They could be bogus stories that are used to lure victims.

- Check out what the forums say about paid survey scams.

- Even though the website looks genuine it could be a scam.

- There is proof that some one really got paid. The cheque is featured with a very attractive amount. This alone does not prove that paid surveys are scam free.

- The information you provide to paid survey scam sites are sold to other scammers.

- Check out the paid survey site and make sure that it's not a scam. Perform a 'whois' to check the credentials of the site

- Check the Better Businesses Bureau, if a complaint has been logged against the survey site.

- Never trust sites that are trying to prove that they are a genuine site and talk about scams. These paid survey sites generally turn out to be scams.

- The paid surveys which are scams say they pay between $ 50 - $ 60 per survey.

- A trick that paid survey scammers use is once you complete a couple of surveys they entice you to take on higher paying surveys. But in order to do this you need to provide personal information such as you likes and dislikes, your financial burdens, your personal assets and so on. - Genuine Paid Surveys sites do not ask for registration and membership fees.

- Check the surveys out; some of them are not even realistic. These sites are scams

- Communicate with people who work from homes, especially those who work with surveys.

- If you find the right survey site stick to it. Those sites that promise huge fees maybe a scam.
