Take Surveys For Cash Scam Review
There is a new kid on the block. Jason White self-proclaimed “King of paid surveys, selling a membership that gives you access to a “list” of the best surveys to take in order to receive cash. So… what is Take Surveys For cash? It is a scam. I have been down this road before and let me tell you it is not pretty. Nor is it profitable. It isn’t even worth it for a part-time job to fill out surveys for cash.
Here is what they would like you to believe will happen if you buy a membership to their list of survey companies who pay cash. Not just any old cash, but large amounts of cash. Hah!!
It Starts With An Email
I have a special email account that I use specifically to catch unsolicited emails inviting me to participate in one scam or another. The latest is this one from TakeSurveysForCash.com
Upon closer examination, you will see there are two links provided. They are for two different things.
A) The link which will transport me to the TakeSurveysForCash.com “website”
B) This link will take me to a page for a list generator called “List Spark” more on that later
Jason White’s “Secret Method”
Mr. King of surveys claims to know something about surveys that we don’t and he is willing to “share” this secret information with us. For a small fee of course. What a guy. These altruistic types really bring a tear to my eye when I read about how selfless they are.
I don’t know about you, but if I stumbled on some great big secret that was helping me to make lots and lots of money, I don’t think I would be selling, oops, I mean sharing this information with anyone except the people closest to me. That would be it.
However, there is no secret. It is just another ploy to get you to let him “share” his secret with you. Guess how much he shares it for? The low, low price of $39 or $27 or $12, depending on how many times you try to click away from the page.
Eternally grateful Jason.
Now let’s have us a closer look at a $500 dollar check he displays for us to drool over.
Upon closer inspection, if you look to where the arrow points, you will see that this is one of those sample checks that are sent to tell you what it could be like. It pretty much states that they want you to contact SurveyConnect so that you can join SurveySavvy in order to be able to receive checks like this one.
“Desperate” Survey Companies
Survey companies are not desperate. If anything, they have too many people to choose from. So much so, that they can afford to be really picky about who they choose for participation. And trust me, they are very picky.
Here is something else I wanted to show you.
Now here, Jason claims you will receive a $50 bonus after you take your first paid survey. What he doesn’t tell you is it won’t exactly be in the form of cash. I have experienced this before so I am telling you what will more than likely occur. You will probably receive a $50 gift card to something like Amazon.com or something equally non-cash like. Then you have to jump through all kinds of hoops to get it.
I tried that once and I was told I would have to sign up with at least three other companies for free trials ( each one requiring a credit card ) I’m sorry, but I just don’t see how that is beneficial to me. All I wanted to do was make some money. Is that too much to ask?
I cannot stress this enough, Anytime something comes to your emailbox that looks remotely like this page they send you to (especially unsolicited emails) always , always scroll all the way to the bottom to look for a disclaimer. Here is what I found on this one. One fact I will share with you is that this particular disclaimer comes in a can. I have seen it placed on the pages of numerous scams I have checked out. Look at this:
This pretty much self-explanatory. I feel no need to offer further comments.
If it sounds like I am openly hostile about these online surveys, it is because I am. I wasted quite a bit of time trying to make money with these things. The problem is that so many people write about online surveys as the best way to make money online and it is simply not true.
Do yourself a favor and don’t get mixed up in this crap. You won’t make anything that is worth the time you put into it. Hell, most companies don’t even pay you in cash. They pay you with points. Once you collect a certain amount of points, you can redeem them for rewards and gifts. Kind of like Swagbucks. But that’s another story. I am not interested in points, I am interested in cash.
Here’s The Kicker !!
He offers an affiliate program. ( What’s this? )
What I want to know is, if he’s making so much money with his little “secret system” why does he feel the need to offer an affiliate program? Not to mention his outlandish claim of their top affiliate pulling down $100,000 per month. What do you think?
Here’s What I Think
I believe it is truly possible to make $100,000 with affiliate marketing. I really do. It all depends on how hard you are willing to work. But I don’t think it is possible by trying to market this pile of dung. There will always be me and people like me who will warn the public against this type of bulls@#%.
What do I think is the best way to make money online? By becoming an affiliate marketer. Yeah, that is where the money is. But you can’t just run right out and become an affiliate marketer. No, no, no. You must first learn how. It requires a certain set of skills which need to be learned.
