Hot off the heels of yesterday’s post where I proved not all survey sites are scams and that you shouldn’t pay anyone to take surveys, comes the following email…
I received an email from surveys4checks.com saying I could make $1,500 a month in my spare time taking surveys. They want me to pay $49.99 up front to prove I’m a “serious job applicant.” Is this real? Thanks!
Sadly, it isn’t and here’s why…
Surveys4Checks is a Scam.
Now, let’s be clear on one thing first. There are legitimate online survey jobs. They cost nothing to join and they do pay out. Yes, you really can make money taking surveys; however, you will never make a full-time income doing so. That’s just not possible.
The scam here is that Sarah Garringer at Surveys4Checks.com is falsely leading people to believe that it is possible to quit your day job and work entirely from home taking surveys. She’s also leading you to believe that once you pay her $49.99 you become an employee of her company and then can log on and take as many surveys as time will allow. Herein lies the scam.
Take a look at the FAQ page where Sarah writes…
Surveys4Checks.com charges a one time only registration fee because we only want serious job applicants filling out our surveys. If we allowed access to the surveys for free we would have “curiosity” applicants filling out survey applications that were not really serious about the surveys, and taking up applications intended for serious job applicants.
In the past we offered the program for free and found many surveys were not being completed and this pay could have gone to another, more reliable and serious survey taker. We want to weed out the “just curious” applicants from the “serious and reliable” survey employees.
This is complete and utter garbage. She uses the words “job applicants” and “survey employees” to mislead victims into sending her money thinking they’re getting a job. At no point will you ever be an employee of her company.
Instead, your $50 will get you a list of online survey companies and probably a few hints on how to take surveys. That’s a bit of a far cry from survey employee. The only redeeming quality of the site is the fact that they use Clickbank to process orders. Clickbank offers a 60-day refund guarantee on ANY order so you can at least get your money back.
Stay far way from this program and any others like it.
