If you use the internet at all, I'm sure you've heard of the paid for surveys scam websites that try to lure you into giving them your credit card numbers in exchange for a list of paid surveys. In many cases, after you give your credit card numbers and are charged an exorbitant membership fee, you get an outdated list that will never in a hundred years make you enough money to recoup your membership fee.
It's a real shame that these sites exist, because they have hurt a lot of people and given the industry in general a bad reputation. It is awful that the industry as a whole has a bad reputation when it has the potential to make a lot of people a lot of money, all while working from home. I happen to know this first hand, because I work as a paid surveyor.
I, too, have fallen victim to a paid for surveys scam or two. After losing money twice, I decided to do my homework and give it one last shot. I found a few programs that were legitimate site and things have really turned around.
To be honest, I have never been happier with a decision. With online paid surveys, I make almost $3,500 each month working from my living room. I never miss an episode of General Hospital and I work at my own pace. Unlike many of the other jobs I've had, I never feel stressed out or depressed about the work that I'm doing. I know that my job isn't another dead end position where I'm working to make my boss rich while I remain poor.
Also, because I'm my own boss, I dictate my own hours, I make my own money and the work is honest and rewarding. I know that my thoughts and opinions are being heard by huge corporations that otherwise wouldn't look at me twice.
