Why people are so quick to yell "scam" these days is beyond me?!  You need to take some personal accountability into consideration with these online sites.

First of all, there is the earning hype that is beyond the control of so many sites.  People who seek attention often get carried away talking numbers and soon enough the amount they alleged to have made becomes an urban legend.  In other words, it ain't so!  Slow and steady is the mantra here.

Secondly, if you understand the premise behind a site like FusionCash you might realize how lucky you are that the owner has the bona fide relationships with some top-notch survey & research companies -- well known names like Nielsen, Ipsos, Harris, Qualtrics, Kantar Millward Brown, to name a few.  These surveys are valuable to market and statistical research and your opinion is needed.  The FC members working surveys are earning a 'slice' of the payment made to FC to utilize this platform.  Believe me, you would not be in a position to negotiate such a deal on your own.

I could continue, but I would suggest you show a little respect or go elsewhere.

Seriously people? I wasted my time on this site!!! Thanks a lot!  >:(

The site is not a scam. Not sure what your problem is but I have made a lot of money on this site as well as several others on here.

If you quit your full time job to do surveys thinking you will make thousands of dollars working 20 minutes a day 3 days a week (which is the motto spewed across the internet) then that is your own stupidity.

You can make money on this site but you will work hard for it.  And you will be lucky if you make the $25 each MONTH to cash out.  Personally, I cash out every month. Others do not. But you can make money on here.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my post, but this isn't about how much money I am making on this site.  The reason I think it's a scam is because in order to receive my payment in a check I have to verify with my phone number; however, every time I try it never goes through (I always get an error or nothing).  I came across instructions on 'how to alternatively get paid via check', which consists of submitting a fax with copy of school transcripts or some crap.  It shouldn't be this difficult! I don't care that I am not making tons of money o this site, that's not why I am disappointed. I am glad to hear from a lot of you that it is a legit site, but I need to experience that for myself and it hasn't happened yet... I am just very frustrated.  Is there anyone here who has had issues receiving their payment by check? If so, what did you do to resolve this?

School transcripts? Never heard anyone say they had to submit that.  Verifying your account with your phone number keeps people from having several accounts.  Some prepaid phones will not work.  If you want or need help you need to contact support - Not us.  WE cannot help you.

you do not tell us what happened or specifics so how can you say is waste of time. You have to put time in to reap its benefits here.

So sorry to hear that you had a less than optimal experience. I have been here over nine years and have been above and beyond happy with everything that I have earned and learned. I think that many of the people who responded pointed out that getting rich on sites like these requires lots of perseverance, diligence and patience.This site is s healthy stepping point that pays you to do mundane tasks and learn new things. My typing skills, for instance, have gotten so much better since joining. I have been slowly plugging along and have yet to spend any of my earnings on anything but investments. These earnings/investments have turned in to quite a nice nest egg. I do this all while I have down time. I have file downloads for one of my jobs that take at least five minutes wich allows me to do a few tasks here.

@DArmijo333:

In the beginning, I took a break as well because I had the same problem. My phone was a Cricket phone and whenever I tried to get the verification, it failed. That is, until I decided that ultimately, my service was provided by AT&T as Cricket rides on the AT&T network. As soon as I changed my provider to AT&T, I got the text immediately.

After that, it's been great. What I like most about FC is the wonderful community. Almost everyone here is welcoming and helpful. I love to read the comments in the forum because you can't find a bunch of more helpful and kind people. Of course, there are always those who woke up on the wrong side of the bed. But that's the same with any community, online or otherwise.

So, if your phone is an off-carrier, try using the main network as the carrier. And if it doesn't work, put in a support ticket. They may not answer quickly but they pretty much always do answer.

Good luck. I hope this issue gets resolved for you!

Ok, so this is not a scam, but rather a technical issue/error. These things have happened and your not the only one. Some people have reported issues verifying phone numbers.

First of all, if you can set up a FREE PayPal account, which itself can be used for ANY online purchases, or sent for free to your bank account (direct deposit is another option), then I highly recommend that. It pays faster. If however, you must receive by check, there are some options.

1) try using other household members phones for this purpose.
2) contact your phone provider to try to resolve the issue. When receiving the text message verification from FC, it is not sent by a phone number, but rather an email address. This may be the issue and your phone company may be able to help.
3) Send FC a support ticket detailing the issue. This WILL take some time to get a response. Just keep earning $ while you patiently wait.
4) Carefully read that alternative option you mentioned - I am not familiar with it, but it sounds like a possibility if all else fails. And remember, the verification will only have to be done 1 time.

I was a previous member of FC for over 2 years and at that time, I always received a check, like clockwork, each month or 2. Now I am signed up for PayPal as it is much more convenient. But I can gauentee you FC pays its member. I am sorry for the difficulty you are experiencing, but once fixed, all will be well as it is a one time issue / hurdle.

Goodluck!

A lot of the less expensive carriers use T-Mobile (like Walmart and Ting for example).

I agree with the others. This is not a scam, and your earnings will depend largely on how much effort you put into it. Just be patient and let your earnings accumulate. In my experience, it is completely reasonable to expect to earn  between $20-$25 per month if you visit the site daily.

So you were not asked for school transcripts.  A copy of your DL would have worked. For some reason you are being asked to confirm your identity.   I am curious as to why you had to do that. Nobody else does unless you are suspected of trying to scam them.   The address on my school transcript is not the same as my address now.
