Paid Survey etc – scam?

Paid Surveys Etc is not a legit paid survey site, it is another site that asks you to pay a membership fee to access their database/list of paid survey companies. As usually, I suggest NOT to pay anyone for those information.

Also there are other red flags about this site:

1. Paid Survey Etc claims you can make $500 – $3500 a month doing paid surveys. This is an outright lie. Yes I have seen people make $500 a month taking paid surveys (those are the people with “desirable” demographic profile and spent lot of time taking surveys), but $3500 a month is just unreal and ridiculous.

There are more false information about survey earning on Paid Surveys Etc, like:

Taking a simple, easy online survey – $5 to $75 per survey – this gives people impression that you can make minimum $5.00 per survey, but the truth is that lot of surveys pay less than $5.00, and $75 is a typical pay for focus group.

Previewing Movie Trailers Online  for $12 to $35 – this is also not true, based on experience, typical online movie trailers surveys pay $2.00 – $5.00;

2. Problem with their privacy policy – you could get spam emails. Here is the part that raises the red flag:


The use of information as described below may or may not be how information that is collected is customarily used by this site.  While actual use of any information collected may be used quite conservatively, you must assume that it is not. You must assume that information collected is shared with other persons or entities for commercial purposes.  While this is uncommon in practice, you must assume that it is as you make your decision whether or not to view or interact with this website. This type of shared information may include your name, address, phone number, email address and buying habits, as well as other information. This information may be used for general commercial solicitation by this website or other persons it is sold to, rented to, or shared with.

You must assume that information collected is shared with other persons or entities for commercial purposes in other words, don’t be surprised if you receive junk mails and telemarketing calls!

My Conclusion: Do NOT waste your money on Paid Surveys Etc. You should not have to pay for a list of paid survey sites, and Paid Surveys Etc is more likely an email harvesting site that spams you.

  1. Hear hear!!
    I made the stupid mistake of thinking maybe just maybe, someone with the same surname as my own MAY be honest


    All you get is runaround, more offers to send money and nowhere near what earning potental they promise.
    Then if you request a refund, the same runaround happens, they stall and then without reason refuse, definately not in keeping with their so called 60day m oney back guarantee.
    And to top it off, other than this their is no other way to let people know, or have them held accountable legally.

  2. Hi Kelly, thank you very much for your feedback about! I totally agree – do NOT pay anyone to do paid surveys including paying survey listings. Welcome to!

  3. To let everyone out there know that is a huge SCAM!! There were a couple of other websites that recommended Paidsurveysandmore, saying it had a high BBB rating, that it was legit, yada,yada,yada. Well, I am here to tell you that all was one big fat lie!!! Not only has the BBB never heard of it(I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau)but the physical address the website gave was a bogus one as well!! Beware!! I wish I had checked with your website first!! Keep up the great work!!
