Which surveys are not scam?

This is a question that has been asked by many people for years. The truth of the matter is, there are almost just as many illegitimate paid surveys out there as there are legitimate ones. The only way to tell the difference between the two, is by visiting online survey discussion forums and also doing your own personal research.

Members of online survey discussion forums can provide a lot of insight and useful information about how to tell legit paid online surveys from illegitimate ones. Based on some of the feedback from these forums, it seems that one of the best ways to tell if a paid online survey is legitimate or not is by researching the company (or person) that is conducting the survey. If the survey is being conducted by a reputable market research company such as Harris Interactive or J. D. Power Associates, than chances are the survey is legit. However, if the survey requester is a company or person you have never heard of and you can't find any verifiable information about them on the internet, then it is highly likely that the survey is not legitimate. You should also make notes about your findings, so you will remember not to participate in any surveys conducted by these questionable companies in the future.

In addition, if you see an online survey that ask for too much personal information like your home address or bank account number, then you should probably run away from this survey as fast as you can.

Now we come back to the question again, are online surveys for money legit? In many cases, yes they are. As a matter of fact, legitimate paid online surveys have been around for many years. Most started not long after the internet was first launched back in the 1990's. The reason why some people are a little leery about paid online surveys, is because there are so many scam artists out there. In addition, you also have some people who are skeptical about taking internet surveys because of online privacy concerns. They fear that their personal IP address and other personal information will be used for illegitimate purposes.

In closing, research has proven that paid online surveys can be a legitimate way to make money. You just need to make sure that the surveys you are taking are being conducted by a verifiable, honest and reputable company.
