Bogus surveys
« on: June 28, 2015, 01:44:06 pm »
I have done about 6 surveys and have been rejected.  I did one that took about 20 minutes and at the ended I was rejected!  I answered a lot of personal question and got squat, Im starting to think this is just another internet scam.. You wanted opinion, there is mine!

This isn't a scam. There is an entire board dedicated to proof of payment I've personally made close to $2000

http://www.fusioncash.net/forum.php?board=13.0

Surveys are all about demographics. They are all looking for the opinions of specific groups of people. Some of those may be broad( ex:females) and others may be much more narrow( ex:executives at large companies). You can't really do anything about being disqualified if you're not what they're looking for. It's also possible for the survey to be filled while you're in the process of taking it

Nope... not a scam.
You're just having a bit of bad luck.
You have to be in it for the long haul.

Again, I spent 20 mins.  They got all of their answers, it was a consumer survey.  I am a consumer.  If I didn't fit their demographics that could of been verified in the first few questions.  No, I feel they were deceptive because they asked ALL of the questions and then told me I was disqualified.  I'm talking about stores I shopped at, items I bought, how often I bought them, etc. I'm new here, but I know a scam when I see one.

As frustrating as it is, spending time only to be rejected IS a part of surveys.  I personally have done quite well with surveys as a whole.  Like many things we do online to earn a few bucks, they can be a numbers game.  For example, if you a member of a site where the only way you will earn any cash is by referring, then the referrals becomes your numbers game.  You may need a bunch of referrals to get a few good ones in that list.  To be successful with surveys, you have to take a bunch to qualify and be credited.

Survey's are usually like this, you win some and you lose some. Keep trying...

   I do agree that the demographic questions should be at the beginning of the survey!   Personally I don't attempt many surveys anymore because I am usually dis qualified for being 58 years old.

This happens all the time. The important thing here is not to get discouraged there are more ways to earn then just surveys but you will get your survey amount in and you will not qualify for everyone of them. There will be day's most surveys will flop. It happens to us all

Fusion, itself, is not a scam.  However, some of these surveys need to be better written and the survey companies held responsible, if possible, for sometimes getting free information, work, and time for nothing!  Shame on them!!!

I have had that happen to me a total of 3 times in 2 years. This site is by no means a scam. Now as far a rejection, I am rejected quite a lot. I am happy to get the 1 cent for the DQ. All those pennies add up to dollars by the end of the month.
