Survey Sites - doesn't it sound too good to be true?

by Rudolf Faix 29. June 2015 06:43

SurveyDuring the last few days I have reported about survey sites which are hosted in the Ukraine. All the sites have a free sign-up and are not collecting personal information. You need only to provide a username, a password and a Paypal or Payza account. That is all to start earning.

All the named sites seems to have one owner which is hiding his identity by using some privacy services.

All the four surveys can be done by a daily work of 30 - 45 minutes. You have to watch a short promotion video between 30 seconds and 2 minutes. After video finished you have to answer a few questions (not more than 10) by clicking into option tabs. So the working time for each survey is very short.

For the case you like to try one or more of the sites and one of the provided links does not open immediately simple press refresh on the site with the error message. The reason for that is that they like to promote their own sites by opening one of them in a new tab and the links from my blog are opening in a new tab too. Maybe they hope the can save some money for generating referrals by this way, but I think more that they have some script failures in their websites.

This sites are only time-waster. Be happy that you wasted only time and not money by participating at this sites hosted in the Ukraine for the case you signed up already. If you did not sign-up then use your time for something better

The reason is described in the article Phishing: Survey & News Sites hosted at the Ukraine.

Here you can find an overview about the promised earnings from the survey sites from the Ukraine:

Site # Surveys $/Survey Earnings $/Referral min. Payout Report
TempoQuiz 4 18 $ 72 $ 35 $ 1000 my Report
VacantSurvey 4 18 $ 72 $ 50 $ 1500 my Report
WhereSurvey 3 14 $ 42 $ 15 $ 800 my Report
WhoSurvey 3 14 $ 42 $ 15 $ 500 my Report
Earnings per day   $ 228      
Earnings per month (30 days) $ 6,840      

TempoQuiz has still problems with their video connection. I hope they are solving this problems soon. I cannot give any guarantee how long their system will be working and if it would be every day available. I'm still waiting for the payout from WhoSurvey and for this I cannot report if the sites are genuine or not. I'll report as soon as I got my payment or the 14 working days for receiving the payment are over.

Does such an offer not sound like it is too good to be true? For me it sounds like that. It is even good that such offers are not true, because nobody would do in such a case something other and the result would be that the prices for all products would rise dramatically if they would be even available. Even the Internet connection would break down and nobody would repair it as long as he would not be affected by himself.

For this you need not search for the "Holy Grail" - it is simple not available. Think about it that one, which has found an automatic money generation process will use the process in a secret way and will not publish it at the social networks.He will publish it only if he need your money, your work or both for getting rich by himself. Don't fire your boss for such scam solutions - you'll regret it.

My opinion about this surveys are that they owner of the server like to generate traffic that they can get some advertiser as customers. Normally you need for advertising customers, which pay for the advertising some traffic statistics. For this they are offering such scam and you should not expect that you'll getting paid by taking the surveys.

Very Suspicious: tempoquiz.com - a site with hidden ownership and hosting in the Ukraine

by Rudolf Faix 28. June 2015 07:21

Update July 1, 2015: This site is only a time-waster. Be happy that you wasted only time and not money by participating at this sites hosted in the Ukraine for the case you signed up already. If you did not sign-up then use your time for something better

The reason is described in the article Phishing: Survey & News Sites hosted at the Ukraine.

TempoQuizDuring the login procedure at whosurvey.com opens tempoquiz.com in a new browser tab. TempoQuiz promises that "you get $35 for each involved friend and 15% from his earnings and when the sum is $1000 on your account you can get your money in 9 days. You can get your money every day at work hours GMT, after previous month application for payment will create automatically."

For signing up you need only to choose a login name, a password and you need to provide a Paypal account. Other information are not requested.

I tried to enter a survey but I got the following surprise as I tried to play the videos:

member site of tempoquiz.com

The translation of the message is: "This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.". We will see if there are tomorrow some videos for the survey available.

During clicking on the fourth survey the site fifty-news.com got opened in a new browser tab.

The site is hosted in Vinnytsya, Ukraine by using the same proxy service from Australia for hiding the ownership of the domain like whosurvey.com, wheresurvey.com and vacantsurvey.com.

Fraud & Scam

Very Suspicious: wheresurvey.com - a site with hidden owner data hosted in Kharkiv, Ukraine

by Rudolf Faix 28. June 2015 05:51

Update July 1, 2015: This site is only a time-waster. Be happy that you wasted only time and not money by participating at this sites hosted in the Ukraine for the case you signed up already. If you did not sign-up then use your time for something better

The reason is described in the article Phishing: Survey & News Sites hosted at the Ukraine.

SurveyThe Facebook member Gary Bailey promoted today in the group Work From Home Online the site wheresurvey.com with a prove of his earnings since June 1, 2015. He had only overseen that the domain wheresurvey.com got registered on June 19, 2015 and he could not earn something from this site before the site got online. For this he had only proved that he has promoted fake information.

offer from whereurvey.com found at Facebook

wheresurvey.com is a copy of whosurvey.com including the same videos for the surveys. The only difference is the minimum payout at wheresurvey.com is $800. The site is hosted in Kharkiv, Ukraine like the WhoSurvey and they are using the same privacy protection service from Australia.

After signing up at WhoSurvey I got $30 as sign-up bonus. I rated two time the same Loctide video and one time the Clash of Clans video. So I don't expect to get paid for this few minutes work. By login in to the site the site the homepage from trastnews.com got opened in a new tab. Maybe the owners from WhoSurvey are using now their system to make some promotion for others.

vacantsurvey.com - is it a followup from whosurvey.com?

by Rudolf Faix 23. June 2015 13:25

Update July 1, 2015: This site is only a time-waster. Be happy that you wasted only time and not money by participating at this sites hosted in the Ukraine for the case you signed up already. If you did not sign-up then use your time for something better

The reason is described in the article Phishing: Survey & News Sites hosted at the Ukraine.

VacantSurveyVacantSurvey is using the same registrar, the same privacy protection service from Australia and the same hosting provider in the Ukraine like whosurvey.com. Additional has VacantSurvey only a few differences to the system of whosurvey.com. For my understanding are that a little bit too many coincidences. The same at both sides is that you sign up for free, get a sign-up bonus and very important is that you need not provide some private information about yourself. You need only to provide a Paypal or Payza ID where you like to get your payment.

The differences are:

  • You can watch and rate 4 videos a day
  • Already rated video cannot get rated again
  • The video don't change every day (yesterday I did not get new videos)
  • You get $9 accounted for signing up
  • For one rating you get $18 accounted
  • Referring a new user you get $50 accounted
  • Payment is done monthly
  • Minimum sum of payout is $1,500

Very suspicious is that the site is registered since 15 days and at their website is written that they have made a monthly payout since February 2015. There gets no hint found how the site has been named before.

 
IP Address Country Region City ISP
 
217.12.215.227 Ukraine  Kharkivs'ka Oblast' Kharkiv Itl Company

 

At the same host are getting found the following domains with a low trust level:

 

  • surveysoks.com....0%
  • personquiz.com....0%
  • domnovost.com....0%
  • posteok.com....0%
  • timezquest.com....0%

  • driftofnews.com....0%
  • quizinfor.com....0%
  • innofnews.com....0%
  • oprosofnew.com....0%
  • guruopros.com....13%

 

Please use my refferal code http://vacantsurvey.com/?p=14380 if you like to try it too. You get $9 accounted for signing up and you need not provide some private information.

cashcrate.com - another time waster site with hidden domain registration?

by Rudolf Faix 23. June 2015 09:44

CashCrateThe site cashcrate.com seems to be only available for generating leads. The offered offers, surveys, bonus surveys, bonus offers and shopping possibilities are simple not available. Even the choice "surveys" seems to be loading in an endless loop. As the only possibility to make money is to bring new members. The promised earnings for each new member is $3 if the new member reaches an earning of $10. Additional you should get 20% of the earnings from your first level referrals and 10% of the earnings from your second level referrals. The minimum payout is $20. The site is collecting a lot of personal information. For giving all this information you'll get $1.50. CashCrate does not take any sign-up or membership fee.

I cannot prove if they payment will be done because it seems to be a illegal pyramid system as there no work gets found. For this I'm not able to promote the site. Maybe there is some work for US citizen available. In such a case it would be not illegal. I have used my Philippines address during sign up and for this area of the world is nothing at the site available.

If you like to sign-up by yourself then please use my referral link that we can check at least if the accounting is working: http://www.cashcrate.com/6131561. Maybe you have more success then me.

The website from cashcrate.com is hosed by using the US service from Amazon.
