Are these just scams? I have been interested in this. Has anyone ever done this?

Mine's not a scam.  Laugh out loud


Depends on the source, really. Oftentimes they're legit. Like if you visit Yahoo or Intel or Boeing and something comes up asking you to participate in a survey of the site, most of the time it's legit and helps them to improve the site's functionality. I got one on Delta the other day too.

I love them. I love surveys because it gives one a chance to become part of the process...your votes contribute to helping improve something. I always participate.


But others are less legit. Such as on popup and ad-rich websites where you get something that says "Take our survey and claim your $10,000 prize!!"

Those are not legit. Again, review the source.

Ok, but, did you pay a fee up front to get the list? I am talking about the ones that say they offer up to $100.00 (example) per survey completed.

No, and I wouldnt pay money to take a survey. That definitely is a scam. Dont pay money to a website unless you know for certain that its reputable.

I make a couple hundred a year off of various online surveys and studies, not to mention last week I woke up and noticed $20 in my PayPal account wondering where the hell it came from and lo and behold it was from gozing.com.

I also have the Nielsen Netratings program that tracks wherever I go on the net and it builds points up for me to choose a gift.

Not bad.



thank goodness for TCAS !
