I advise against signing up with PaidSurveysOnline.com. If you could
not lose anything by participating, it would not matter. But they are
demanding a sign-up fee of currently "only" $34.95. Such fees are
always suspicious and should give reason to suspicion. Especially, if
there is no whatsoever guarantee that you will ever qualify for any
real paid surveys ot the like.
In this particular case, the reputation of PaidSurveysOnline.com is
extremely bad. A brief Google search in connection with the word
"scam" already revealed meaningful accounts of people who have signed
up with PaidSurveysOnline.com and paid the fee. Please have a look at
some examples, from the Rip Off Report website:
"I paid paidsurveysonline.com for surveys to make money and so far I
have not receive any money I paid the amount of $34.95 on 10/11/2004
for surveys and to get paid to read email and for free samples and I
have been doing noting but filling out applications for surveys or
getting surveys that require me to keep buying thing that I don't have
the money for and I was told I would be receving money right away and
I haven't and its been a month an a half almost 2 months."
"Beware in Australia!! It sounded great - some may say "too good to be
true" - and it is...! Do Not Sign Up for this service - it is non
existent! The only service they excel at is taking your money - that
happened within seconds... and that was it!
For the last six weeks I have been trying to get a response from this
company as to why there are no valid surveys (especially for us here
down under), How to get the money back guarantee, and basically how to
end the transaction happily - etc, etc."
"I decided to try out paid surveys online. I realized right away that
their website is misleading and they are only out to make a buck by
scamming the american people.
Less then twenty four hours of giving my thirty four dollars and
ninety five cents up through a debit card I requested my money back. I
have emailed them at least six times since requesting some kind of
response and my money back. Not one single soul has ever responded.
there is no phone number for them and the only way I could come across
an address is to click on sending a check or money order which
associates them with nrh enterprises in Lavallette NJ.
there is no webmaster address on their site either. These people are
scamming the american people and they need to be stopped immediately.
You do get access to surveys but most of them are for winning
prizes.... by drawings... or three bucks a survey "if" you qualify to
take the survey and "if" they need more surveys taken. You cannot
possibly make the kind of money they claim! Somebody help me stop
"they get you online with false statements about doing surveys and
making so much money that you could be your own business and make lots
of money. so a person like me takes a chance,even when his gut tells
him not to and they lose 34.95. which is alot of money if you live on
abudget.this can't be legal,is it?? they give you a list but you can't
get on thier web sites and if you do get to the site then when you
register they tell you your password is incorrect!when you have it
written down!! this is fraud!!"
"I have continuously tried to contact these jerk offs for a 'money
back guaranteed' refund to no avail. Now the site seems to be
non-existent, and my emails bounce back.
They run from mulitple names and websites (such as NRH Enterprises,
MaximumPayJobs.com and shoppingjobshere.com.), making it hard to keep
up with them. All of the claims on their website is a load of ####,
including their non-existent money back guarantee.
They claim that their website is updated every day, but in the whole
two months which I have been a member, it was not updated once!!! Not
to mention the fact that their 300 listed survey companies turned out
to be about 50 links which were copied over and over again."
These are only the first examples I found with this simple Google search:

In brief: No reputable company would demand a sign-up fee for granting
you the privilege to work for them (resp. for their "partners"). And
