This is a question that most people wonder when they are online looking at the various Paid for Surveys opportunities. While not all of the opportunities are legitimate there are some and you need to know how to screen these companies so you are able to find the ones that are legitimate. The first item is looking at where the company offering the survey is registered to do business. Some of these companies are operating from overseas and simply using a virtual office to try and create an appearance of being a “local company” in order to avoid these firms all you need to do is use the search engines and type in the address of the company. If you notice there is a large concentration of different companies all with the same address then chances are that this is a virtual office and you should not use that company.
The reason you need to avoid these overseas companies like the plague is the risk they pose to your privacy, firms from overseas are not bound by the same laws protecting your privacy like what you would find domestically and this is reason enough to not use those companies and look for another firm.
After you have located a few companies who are located on the mainland and currently promoting Get Paid To Take Surveys you have to find out if there are other people online who have gone through the survey process and gotten paid. To find these people head to a search engine and type in the name of the firm that is offering the survey, if anyone has worked with them and been cheated the complaints would come right to the surface and you can act on them. Only when you have done your research on these companies will you be able to earn some extra cash doing these surveys. You should not expect these opportunities to replace your current job or pension, the most you will get from the surveys is a few hundred dollars per month at most.
