No I haven't lied to get a survey.That is why I have dry spells on my surveys.

No, I haven't.  I am always honest.

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.

There are some sites that actively monitor answers from an IP address. If they find inconsistent answers, they might block the account. I don't lie on surveys.

I don't lie on surveys, but occasionally I'll get a question where none of the available answers really apply, and they won't let me skip the question. So I have to choose whatever would be most accurate, even if none of them really are true in my circumstances.

Why even try to lie?  It is not worth it.

No, because I take this seriously and don't want to risk being banned.

Your profile is linked to you and is linked to the surveys so they can tell your lieing that way and some surveys have algerythems if something doesn't seem right to that program they have governing over there survey it will phase you out so lieing to get money on surveys will not work
That is so true.  It's also a very good reminder to visit your profile page every so often to make any updates if needed.  If something has changed with you recently and you have not noted it on your profile page, you may not be lying on a survey but according to what's on your profile page, the information does not add up. 

Even though I usually do well with surveys, I think I'll go check my profile page right now just to be sure that I'm still me.  :silly:

No, cause I halfway don't wanna take surveys to begin with, so if I disqualify for a survey on a subject I don't like, I rejoice. Most of these surveys aren't good/fun enough to even lie about.

What I have noticed is evident as time goes by, survey companies look for consistencies in responses.  Survey companies may even share common basic information.  Who knows?  For these pennies, why lie? In the long run, I don't think you would be doing yourself any favor to lie because sooner or later you will be blackballed and automatically disqualified from probably not only survey companies but sites.

No because they can track what you answer and it's not ethical.

To me, it is not ethical. It is not a matter of being caught or not, to me it is just wrong. I know not all surveys are meant for me, and that is fine.
