Is getpaidtakingsurveys.net a scam?
I have gone on their website; there is a charge
of $68 for the information or if you act fast it is only $34. Is this a legitimate offer?
Hi,The work at home/get rich quick industry is made up almost entirely of fraudsters. They may be not be out and out scammers, but they are all holding out false promises which they cannot deliver. The Federal Trade Association warns people attracted by high profits and easy money to avoid signing on for any type of job where you have to pay them rather than the other way around. That's really sensible advice.You are paying for a list of available surveys, but don't for a minute think that completing one will get you paid. You may find again and again and again that you are not, for example, in the right applicant pool to take the survey. That is, real marketing surveys tap into a specific segment of the population. If you are the wrong age, the wrong gender, in the wrong income bracket or living in the wrong part of the country you will not be able to take some surveys. It will not be as easy as you think to justify the money you are paying to getpaidtakingsurveys. At best you'll end up with pin money. At worst, it will be a complete waste of your time and money The US Federal Trade Commission and the various state authorities are targeting these and sanctioning them heavily when they find them, due to a special war they are waging against companies like this called Operation Bottom Dollar. Unfortunately, however, businesses promising easy spring up every day, and our government can't get to them all. The Federal Trade Commission has, however, put out laws to protect the consumers in this industry. Now these work at home sites are required to have disclaimers that are to accurately provide information as to how much you are likely to earn. If the website does not have a disclaimer, and this one doesn't, it's operating unlawfully. If it does, read the fine print. You will fiind that they will make absolutely no guarantees of anything at all.Here are the FTC's warnings and tips about work at home businesses. You should find these rules helpful in evaluating companies that interest you as you come across them. But I would give this one a pass. There are legitimate telecommuting jobs available, but they are actual work. You won't get rich, but you can make a living. The customer service field is one that always can use more telecommuters. They will train you and you don't have to pay them for it. If you're interested in something like that, one reputable company that hires them is this one There are some other suggestions and links to reputable companies here
