Paidsurveysetc.com / Scam and cheating!

1 CA, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

So after feeling like hey what's $34 when they offer a money back guarantee? I have YET to see my refund!! I tried contacting them and I get automated emails back trying to sell me more crap! I signed up for the membership and rec'd. absolutely nothing but crappy information that paid nothing unless you bought their memberships, their products, etc!! So if anyone wants to fill out online surveys look no further because I'll save ya the $34 dollars. PAIDSURVEYSETC membership login INFO for FREE FolkS!!! Username: Paid, Password: Surveys.

Good luck on every being "selected" for a survey!! All you'll get is an inbox full of junk mail!

    Sarah-

    I just wanted to let you know that I also fell for this company's scam and couldn't believe it when I paid $34 for a membership with Paidsurveysetc.com and realized that the username and password were just generic ones given out.

    For you and anyone out there wanting to get your money back from the company, open a dispute through PayPal (hopefully this was your method of payment) and you can easily get your money back by stating that you were not happy with the website and that they offer you an 8 week money-back guarantee and you want to cancel your membership. Also state that you have contacted them and that they are apprehensive to give you a refund. I received my money back from ClickBank via PayPal in just two days.

    Good luck, and don't fall for these scamming companies everyone -- just as I did...

    THANK YOU ERIC!!

    If you have been duped into paidsurveyetc.com call this number immediately! It took about 30 seconds and she totally cancelled the whole thing. Click Bank is legit, paidsurveyetc is not. I was guaranteed a refund and after signing up got no information what so ever. DO NOT try to go through the website or wait for support email, it wont do you any good.

    Just to repeat info: Click Bank # is 1-800-390-6035

    Call and tell them you want to cancel the charge. Hopefully you're doing it the same day you signed up. I did and there will never even be a charge to my account now. Spread the word that www.paidsurveysetc.com is bull. If you are someone researching and still think that it might be for real, here's the login name and password they send you once you sign up.

    login name: paid
    password: surveys

    Stay away. Far away.

    I completely agree with the complaints against paidsurveysetc.com. i knew immidiately upon receiving my username (paid) and password (surveys) that something wasn't right! but determined to prove to myself that i had not "thrown away money", i took the sites advice and registered with a total of 37 companies. I have spent a total of 12 hours JUST registering(YOU GET PAID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR REGISTRATION) for these online surveys and have received nothing but links to more useless websites.

    After ALL the hours of registering as I was guided to do...I began to research a little more on this "company". what I found shocked and infuriated me. it is a complete scam. I have done nothing but waste my time trying to earn a little extra income. I have a disabled husband and 2 boys, one under a year and need the extra money badly. I thought i was helping my family, and all I have done is waste the little money we had by purchsing the "directory", and lost much valuable time with my kiddos by sitting at the computer, waiting for these "surveys" to come thru that were supposed to earn me big bucks. Don't fall for it guys!

    I did the research before i purchased. well, I thought i did. One site said that it was a credible site. ranked top among the 2 it gave as the best sites to do surveys from. too late, i realized ONLY ONE SITE GAVE CREDIT TO IT, AND IT WAS A LIE IN ITSELF, SUPPORTED NO DOUBT BY PAIDSURVEYSETC THEMSELVES. the negative reports i have read, however, are endless! too little too late though. i have read what eric posted.(thank-you eric) I tried calling CLKBANK and i also wrote them an email thru their support desk, but have yet to hear back from them as it is sunday. I plan on calling them first thing monday morning.

    I did not pay thru pay-pal, i used our credit card. i so hope clkbank is reputable and can make this right. what a disappointment. I'll shy away for sure now of anything to do with surveys online. quite frankly, i've lost money with the time i've spent registering. There were alot of other things I could have done with my time than register with companies that may never send me a survey and if they do, probably won't pay me for it. And if they do, you can't "cash out" anyway til so many surveys are completed and that could take months. i actually read about a girl who worked diligently at it for a month and only received a total of $10.00. There must be better ways to make money online. This isn't it for me. It may be for some of you, but do yourself a big favor, and do the research beforehand. In the end, you will be glad you did.

    Please, everyone, stay away from them. Don't beat yourself up if you've already been scammed as I have...but PLEASE...BE SURE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. POST AND LET OTHERS BE AWARE. BRING THIS PHONY COMPANY DOWN. THEY ARE A JOKE! IS THERE NO WAY TO LEGALLY HOLD THEM RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR CLAIM OF AN 8 WEEK MONEY BACK GUARANTEE??? iF THERE IS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I'M WILLING TO INVEST JUST AS MUCH TIME GETTING THE TRUTH OUT ABOUT THEM AS I SPENT WASTING MY TIME AND MONEY AT THEIR SITE. BEWARE AND GOODLUCK! ---JAMI---

    Paidsurveysetc.com - Unauthorized charges
    PaidSurveysEtc.com
    United States
    paidsurveysetc.com

    Signed up, hoping for a little extra cash, like others, and got far too many "applications" before getting any(if any) actual surveys, cannot get a person, cannot get a refund, amount of money promised to actual money paid is completely inaccurate and not worth time spent. Do Not Spend Your Hard Earned Money On This Scam. Has a web page that promises Gov Grant money, within two days, but gives no info on cost of information, nor other info needed to know to make an informed decision, possibly has access to your checking/creditcard/paypal account to further gouge you.

    Paidsurveysetc.com - No length of payment of the refund
    Paidsurveysetc.com
    United States

    The problem that took me to denounce this site is, they didn't return me the value pay for a program that I bought. They promise to reimburse all that after 30 days of it experiences unsatisfactory, and they didn't reimburse me, I already requested the reimbursement vary times, and it had not returned me. They already told me that this value was already sent, but, it was not done, when I verified.

    I accomplished this purchase for the paypal, and, the values were not returned. I paid $24, 00 for the program.

    I was also scammed! It is to bad that someone feels that the only way they can make money is by taking advantage of other people who need to make money!!! Come on this is 2017. I thought that companies would need feed back from consumers, however I guess that is what the card is that you get when you leave a restaurant or store to fill out for FREE!!! Well you know what they say, if it sounds to good to be true it USUALLY is!!! God Bless America, the home of the brave, and the home of people who DO NOT hesitate to help their fellow brother on one hand and rob him blind with thee other. Now this statement is not meant to generalize EVERYONE in America so please do not take that way. My great great grandfather and the great men who have followed in his footsteps to defend freedom would be mortified to see the way generations are turning out! What happened to morals, etiquette? God Bless America and our men and women who defend us!! Remember what comes around goes around. People who feel the need to flourish off of other peoples hardships eventually have a higher power to answer to.

    JOE SMITH,

    this is a scam.. just like www.myprofitsite.com, www.fastnetlearning.com, internetcareerfinder.com
    these 3 websites are just a few made by people who wanna scam other people.. they're telling you that you'll have a money back guarantee. still they would not give it back to you and always saying that you should read the terms and condition and all of those craps...

    read these things on the website of answering surveys that is being featured on this site..

    this is the URL.
    http://www.paidsurveysetc.com/half-price-coupon/

    this is the disclaimer.

    i mean they are telling you that you can earn by using the things being stated on that site.. will think again... this ain't true.. you're not getting money out, it's the other way around.. they are getting money from you.. believe me... I've work before in a contact center that support this kind of business.. and i resigned immediately after a week of working there.. I just could not stand it... I mean those poor people whose money was rob from that scammers site.. tzk!! what i did while staying there I readily give them full refund so that they could have their money back and I've been doing that for 7days of staying there...

    just search this site in google.com
    www.paidsurveysetc.com so that you'll know the people who were scammed and their opinion about it...

    I'm doing it to help people not to scam this... Remember every time that you'll see these thins popping out when you're surfing/ web browsing... NEVER, I mean NEVER dare to go and put you're info's their... just be careful... think about where you want to invest your money..

    GODBLESS to ALL..
    AND BE CAREFUL

    If it's too good to be true, it probably is. Good thing I googled the website before I did anything. They usually put up misleading websites like this not only to get the registration fee but also to earn from the clickable ads.

    For now, I'll stick to the usual freelance sites:
    www.odesk.com
    www.guru.com

    To others like me who have serious hobbies like photography and graphics design, you can also earn from your hobby by uploading your works and getting royalties for every download:
    www.shutterstock.com
    www.tailcast.com

    I'm still trying to get a hang of this freelance online thing. Goodluck everyone! =)

    Thanks for information . I was going to join that site but I found this
    There are lot of way to make money online but no a easy way. Every way requires real work.

    Thank you for the feedback. It was unfortunate that you had to experience such dismay, nevertheless, through it, it allowed so many hopefuls to be aware and enlightened of its schemes. Thank you for being a blessing to so many people whose only hope is to bring more food on the table. I, myself was about to get my credit card to give it a try. I was fortunate to had visited this website before doing so. Thank you, thank you, thank you... And oh, I just tried the username and the password that Sarah gave, it worked! I was able to visit the member's page without even paying a dime and it all the more proves how devious they were... Thank you
