Nowadays, there are many websites offering a variety of online survey opportunities to all the internet users. These promotions are very attractive and persuasive as they are offering cash rewards and grand prizes to online survey takers. However, it is indeed a hard task for the internet users to differentiate which websites are real and which are fake.
In order to avoid yourself from being trapped by scams, you are reminded to work smart. Let's learn some important tips on how to spot these "ugly" sites.
A lot of these sites require their members to register with them by paying a certain amount of fee. They usually ask their members to pay a minimum amount of US $ 50 to purchase a tool kit before they can start earning cash. Some scams require their members to pay for a list of survey sites. In fact, these sites are not valid and you should not waste your money. You must bear in mind that all legitimate survey sites are free to join and they do not ask for any payment.
· Some sites even claim that their members can make a few thousands of dollars in just a couple of hours by filling up the surveys comfortably. In fact, this doesn't make sense at all. It sounds "too easy" to make high return. It is ridiculous! Don't be attracted by nice promise.
· There are sites that require their members to provide personal information such as bank account number, credit card number as well as social security information during the registration. You are reminded to avoid these sites. They definitely can't be trusted at all. You will place yourself at high risk if you furnish them with all the valuable personal details.
· Don't you feel unsecured to join any website when there is no contact information provided? There is one common feature among all scams. They don't provide any contact details like working hotline, phone number, email address, registered office address, etc. They don't want to get caught by the internet users.
To be frank, participating in online survey can never be your full time job. There are many irresponsible websites that over promising the internet users. You must ignore those online companies that claim to help you making millions of dollars per month. Don't be fooled by those "Get Rich Schemes". A real online survey taking job can only help to supplement your monthly income.
