Is SurveyScout.com A Scam? It depends…
This blog is supported by sponsored links & ads. But “Eddy with a y” only personally recommends companies I trust and researched.
If you read some of my other reviews about online paid surveys then the following review won't come as a surprise to you. Honestly I wish I could say the SurveyScout.com is different than many of the other clickbank based get paid for survey websites. But alas I can not. SurveyScout.com is basically a middle man that offers you a list of companies that are looking for work at home seekers to take surveys or focus groups.
But you don't need to pay nearly $40 to get this information folks! There are sites that list online paid survey opportunities at no cost to you. I'll give it to SurveyScout.com they have a very slick looking website that looks very professional but the fact of the matter is you don't need to pay for this type of information.
So do I recommend SurveyScout.com? No I don't. Is it a scam? Not in my opinion. They do provide a list of companies that are looking for survey takers. I would view it as a scam if you paid for a list and didn't receive it. This isn't the case. But that being said you don't need to pay for a list of survey companies.
SurveryScout.com is really just guilty of what so many books, magazines and newspaper make a living doing. They all provide information that can readily be found elsewhere for free if you don't mind doing the research and leg work.
But people don't call these mediums scams because they understand they're paying for the convienence of having all this information at their finger tips with ease. So keep that in mind when you reading claims that certain companies offering information based products are scams.
Complaints really come because paid survey companies misrepresent or exagerrate how much you really can earn for doing surveys online. Despite what SurveyScout.com may say, it's not really guaranteed that you will always make $10-$20 per hour doing online surveys. There are many factors that are never mentioned so just be aware of that if you decide to go ahead and still use a site like SurveyScout.com
My final word is to avoid sites like SurveyScout.com. It's not worth the money when you consider the alternatives which are free.
