What advantage does lying even give you?
I can remember getting a survey once where I was asked if I had ever heard of several insurance companies, a few were national mainstream companies and there was one obscure one that I had NEVER heard of before. Of course I checked off all of the ones I had heard of, and assumed the obscure company was a fake name designed to test my honesty - so I left it blank. I was DQ'd.
A short while later, I was faced with the same survey. I answered the same way and was DQ'd.
I then looked up the obscure name in Google and learned it was a REAL company. I kept that in the back of my head, and sure enough I got that survey again a few weeks later. This time, I could TRUTHFULLY say that I had heard of CompanyX before - and I qualified for the survey. But when it began asking questions about my impressions about the company, I wasn't able to answer honestly other than that I'd "heard" of it. I think I ended up closing out that survey rather than give bad data. I then decided to READ UP on the company and delve deeper into its corporate web site.
It sounds like a broken record, but I got the survey again and this time I was able to answer the questions and give an honest impression of what they offered based on what I found out. I could have lied on the earlier surveys and given bad information, but why? For a few extra cents on my balance? Experience tells me that if I don't qualify for this survey today, I WILL get one tomorrow or the next day that I DO qualify for. Lying today puts all of those future surveys at risk. It's a pretty dumb risk to take if you ask me.
