I have tried the IQ test and the Personality test a couple of times each and was able to get thru them but did not get credit for them.  I have become very leery of the offers as I haven't received credit for any in a long time.

Thse offers work great for some people, but not so well for others. Make sure you don't do more than one or two at a time, and try not to use the same email address for a whole bunch of them. For some people, like me, they just don't credit very well no matter what you do.

That's the reality of personality tests and surveys... you try SO HARD to qualify, then when you answer in a way that the system doesn't want, they immediately throw you away and say "you don't qualify for this survey!" That's very mean, and it ALWAYS discourages me from taking surveys!!

I was just taking the personality test and i could only go so far before my router software detected the next page as a potential threat.  So who here is actually responsible for screening these offers before we take the risk of trying them?  Furthermore I'm getting pretty tired of spam emails and phone texts.  When I first signed up at FC I was under the impression that I would be simply taking surveys not all this other bull...but apparently that's not the case.

Oh it's also the same with the instant iq test.  It keeps going and going wanting me to validate my cell phone over and over again with tons of spam ads in between.  I eventually gave up just to end up being hammered with spam texts.

I agree with you on that.  I have completed a lot of surveys and never received credit.  So the advertisers get what they want and FC sit back and do nothing about them scamming the survey taker.  Its not fair, but you are stuck because no one is being held accountable.

I made it all the way to the end on the personality test and was never credited for it, the IQ test was the same....
Remember you don't have to sign up for every page that pops up...whenever something new comes up I close it out and continue with the one that I was working on. Not to mention when you do them after you fill out the initial set-up part and it asks you to complete an separate offer DON'T, just go to the very top of the page of the bottom of the page and press SKIP.
Also when I do sign up for other surveys I usually just remove my name from there mailing list after a few days

Lets hope that fusion cash just missed that. I havent had any problems like that since joining. The only problem i have had is that i am NEVER able to do surveys. Its pretty disappointing.

Yeah a lot of these offers will try to get you rolled in to other third-party stuff (which you can just skip).  Your account won't credit until you get to the last page, so just keep clicking skip and 'No' to most of the third-party offers until reach the final page on the original offer.

As far as security concerns, a lot of times things are reported as web forgery and in secure, but it could just be ad ware.  If you have an AV program, often it does go berserk on a lot of offer pages.  I just use MalwareBytes, so I can scan whenever and it doesn't have to be set to active 24/7.  Also, for further security, close all of your incoming firewall ports.

I screen all the offers. I never give them my cell phone number. It is discouraging when you get halfway through an offer and have to quit.
