Paid online surveys...dodgy?

Stumbled across this website today, and i've gotta say i'm very curious about it..? I wonder if you can actually make a bit of money out of it. It all sounds a little bs to me.

Check it out -

has anyone had any experience with these before?

Re: Paid online surveys...dodgy?

I have two things to say about this:
1. Something you have to pay someone else, to earn money ? (Hmm, anyone heard of a nigerian scam)
2. Contact email address is at Yahoo.


I've signed up with the Australia post one ( using my "spam me as much as you want" address on hotmail. It does actually seem legit, but as mentioned, you get almost no surveys ( i've had 2 in 2 months ). I'm surprised to have had that many. I'm fairly sure that most companies are incredibly wary about this kind of research (as they should be), since it has next to no value at all - you have no real guarantee's about the respondents actual details (i'm a perfect example, I ticked almost every box in the australia post one, "knitting ! yup, I'm interested in that !!"

That said, I'm still tempted to sign up to this place, just to de-bunk it...But in the end, I can't bring myself to care quite enough :)
