8 Things legit survey companies will never do

When you are looking for any information about online surveys or paid surveys, google will present you with so many web pages for your keyword search. Unfortunately, not all that you read is trustworthy. Some scammers might use the opportunity to fool you. Be aware and know the things legitimate survey companies will never do in order to get you to join.

Guarantee big bucks and quick earnings.

Ooops image missing Trusted survey companies will never guarantee you will get tens or even hundreds of dollars in just a few minutes. Taking online paid surveys will take your time and require your effort to put in answering all the questionnaires. Normally, you will be rewarded for $0.5 to $2.5 per survey taken. So, please think twice when you see any offers that promise you instant money.

Provide crazy good testimonials.

Ooops image missing Please note that the testimonials about a website are intentionally made, it also might be a made-up story in order to attract visitors. Usually, in the testimonial section, suspicious companies will show how easy it is to get large amounts of money in a short time. Remember! There is no easy high-paying job. You need patience, time, and commitment for the earnings.

Ask sensitive questions.

Ooops image missing Sensitive questions may include; bank accounts information, social security numbers, passport numbers, biometric information, medical data, and personally identifiable financial information. Keep that information for you and never share it with anybody else. Confidential personal data should not be provided to survey companies without proper investigation or verification. Having a detailed profile increases your chances of qualifying for a survey, but sensitive information is not part of the requirement.

Offering great-great rewards and freebies.

Ooops image missing A free gift is always nice, but if it’s too good to be true then it might be a scam. Stay away from it! If an ad offers to pay $350 for completing a survey that takes 10-15 minutes, hold up before you start answering the questionnaires. Always beware of these offers, be careful when they ask for your sensitive personal information to 'send gifts'.

Asking for an upfront membership fee.

Ooops image missing There are no survey companies that require the user to pay for membership. An online paid survey is a voluntary activity, all users are free to take a part in online market research. Free of charge.

Hide the company information and contact details.

Ooops image missing The first thing you should do before deciding to sign up for a survey website is found more information about the company’s background. A legitimate company will never hide its identity from users. At the same time, the company name still does not guarantee its legitimacy. However, if the ad doesn't feature a name at all, that's a big red flag that the survey might be a scam. If it’s hard to find more information about the survey company, you should avoid it as it indicates

Share your personal info with 3rd parties for marketing purposes.

Ooops image missing Trustworthy survey companies will not share your sensitive information with third-party companies to sell you products or services. Before joining, check the privacy policy and also the terms and conditions regarding information dissemination. If it mentions anything about sharing your details with a third party for a business opportunity such as marketing a product or service, avoid these websites as they may not be genuine survey companies.

The website doesn't provide a privacy policy.

Ooops image missing Before you start answering the survey questions, you will fill out a pre-screening form that asks for your email, phone number, address, shopping habits, age, household number, and other relevant information and never returns; it doesn't mean that these facts are not being noticed. Fraudsters collect this information and sell it to marketing companies that bombard you with phone calls, emails, or spam. Always review the survey companies' privacy policies on their websites carefully. If there is no privacy policy, keep your information to yourself.

How to spot fake survey sites and avoid survey scams

You are promised free gift cards or free products for doing absolutely nothing. You can get a free gift like a gift card if you fill out or answer a survey. Especially if you evaluate such a product (sample) on the official survey site, there is a possibility that you can get the product for free as well. But you can’t get paid for doing nothing! The survey site is asking for your bank account info. Don’t ever try to provide your bank account details into the survey site that you want to register. A legit survey site doesn't need it, not even to pay you! Normally a legit survey will pay you or give the cash through your Paypal account only.
