Odd survey
« on: February 01, 2019, 07:28:31 am »
I just did a survey that told you what to put in for a zip code.  They wanted a specific zip code no matter where you lived.
I opted out of it because I just didn't feel comfortable saying I lived somewhere that I didn't.

I have had some strange surveys myself where I also decided to opt out.  I've never had one involving a zip code like the one you are describing. 

I don't blame you for opting out of it.  It would be nice to know what the intention of that was.   ???

Maybe it was a test to see that you were a real human and not a bot. I would have put in the required zip code just to see what would happen next.

I did the first time but when they asked again I opted out.

I have had some Surveys like that too. It is hard to put in a Zip Code and you do not even live in that vacinity. I just opt out as well when this happens.

I had that one myself and opted out as well.... I'd rather do that than get banned for giving false info... just in case

I always opt out too.  Never know what the survey is about but don't want to take a chance of my account locked

That is what I was wondering also.  It could have been testing to see if you were real.

I remember I put my zip code in one and as soon as I did, they kicked me out. I thought that was strange.

I have had where they ask for my full address. At that point I just close out the survey and move on.

Idon't mind the zip code, but when they ask for full addresses then it is a problem, and I also opt out of any survey that is more than 20 minutes, not worth it the hazzle

that is odd - how funny, every now and then get one that just does not have an answer - so I just close and move on - but hate to lose any - so hard to win em in the first place, every one counts...
