Are Paid Surveys A Scam?

Thousands of websites are pressing kids and adults alike to make money taking surveys. With headlines like, Make $500 A Week Taking FREE Online Surveys! or You CAN get rich! Take Our FREE Surveys Today! it may seem a little tempting.

But are these campaigns legit? Can you really make money taking online surveys?

Companies love to hear your feedback. Surveys present an easy way for them to know more about you and find out whether or not you'd buy what they have to offer.

However, there are many companies exploiting this market and, instead, getting rich themselves.

Usually, registering with an online survey will require some personal information about you (age, gender, ect). They will offer you a certain amount of money per survey or (if you're a kid) sometimes prizes. So, you take the surveys and expect to get money back for the work you put into it.

Sadly, this isn't always the case. While there are a handful of legitimate surveys out there, many others will simply collect the info you shared with them and sell your profile to other companies, spam you, and generally waste much of your time.

There are a lot of surveys out there promising hundreds-thousands of dollars a month for your opinion, yet end up being scams.

Taking online surveys for money is a hit-or-miss. I've never personally met anyone who has made money doing it. It's a dangerous business - one that will probably leave you disappointed. I wouldn't recommend it, yet if you are interested in earning money online, you could try starting a blog or even selling stuff on ebay/amazon. We will be posting more in the future about earning money online. Stay tuned!
