I just love those E-Mails “Make $150 a day just by sharing your opinions”. First of all, this is simply not realistic. These ads offer, for a fee, to furnish you a list of sometimes hundreds of survey panels where you will be paid big bucks just by sharing your opinions. The truth of the matter is all the information they sell to you is readily available for free.
If you would like to learn more about Paid Surveys, check out the people at Survey Police. A list of reliable and not so reliable survey panels are reviewed by participants in these panels, lots of good info.
Another rather irritating type of E-Mail, which is prolific lately, is the type which offers $500 gift certificates just for filling out a simple short survey. Apply for the survey and guess what, you just entered your E-Mail address on another mailing list and to qualify for the “gift certificate”, you have to make a number of purchases, usually worth much more than the actual value of the certificate.
