    Re: Is this a scam? Surveylot.com

    When you send them "their part of the money" back.. they are getting your real money. YOU are the one who is out the money and has to pay the bank back when the check bounces. Most people put the check in the bank and DON'T check the validity of it... Since they are regular customers, the bank lets them draw money off the check. However it can take a few weeks, and the check comes back as fraudulent or bad.

    By now the person who deposited the check has already sent the scammer their money and has no way to recover it.

    Re: Is this a scam? Surveylot.com

    Well, folks, the SurveyLot.com scam is still out there. Today I received an envelope with a cheaply printed label, and a Canadian stamp placed crookedly. The cancellation mark on the envelope cannot be read. There was no return address on the outside of the envelope.

    Inside, there is an invitation to become a secret shopper, and a check for $3978, some entirely unclear instructions that mostly boil down to "Go ahead and deposit this check" - absolutely nothing that outlines that you're going to send them "back" the $3,420 in their 'breakdown'...it's just so deliberately confusing.

    The name and address are:
    The Surveylot
    518 W Atew Rd Suite 4
    Imperial CA 92251
    1-650-993-1549
    [email protected]

    The fake cashier's check is very believable. It even has a watermark. It claims to be drawn on:

    Washington Postal Employees FCU
    900 Brentwood Rd NE
    Washington DC 20066

    I have contacted the Credit Union to offer to send them the fake check for prosecution. I don't expect any reply, but one never knows. I'm surprised these scammers are still operating after all this time!

    Re: Is this a scam? Surveylot.com

    I was just looking around for something to supplement my income and came across SurveyLot.com. Then I started looking and found this forum and thread.

    Guess what....they are still operating but on the contact page I found this:

    Check out SurveyLot.com's contact page. They have a fraud warning that someone is sending cheques between 3 and 4000 in their name.

    Survey Lot claims you can get rich from taking surveys. The truth is you can only make about $1,000-$4000 a year from filling out paid surveys. I would know I take surveys for a living. Any site claiming you can get rich from answering surveys is a scam.

    Regards,

    Your statement is contradictory.
    "I take surveys for a living."
    "The truth is you can only make about $1,000-$4000 a year from filling out paid surveys."

    If you can make a living only making $1,000-$4000 a year then I would really like you to share with the rest of us where you are living.

    Plus how much you are going to make is dependent upon your personal demographics and which sites you are registered with. I know some people who make much much more than 1k-4k a year and I know people who make much less.

    I have tried this avenue to try and Make Money from Home. Unfortunately, you have to spend at least 10 - 15 minutes filling out a survey to get a few dollars. You would probably have to spend at least 15 hours a day solid to get the kind of money you want. Not only that you get thousands and thousands of e-mails.

    With the REAL survey companies, you spend 10-15 mins to make anywhere from $3-$50. You are right in that you aren't going to make a living, but you can easily spend an hour a day and make $400-$600 a month.

    HOWEVER, you HAVE to be signed up with the legitimate consumer research sites. You cannot pay money to get a good list. There are a few of us here with legitimate lists that have been verified and which are free and NOT filled with the junk that these other sites are filled with.

    Unfortunately these people are still at large. Received a check for $2180.00 with all the above mentioned, use at KMart, wire with Western Union, etc. Since my check was smaller guess they're trying to fly a little lower under the wire. Contacted the bank in Ohio and sent them copies.
