    For a very long time I was thinking of discussing this subject with some one.A loud applause to IL who have given us the right to dicuss the topic of our choice.Stepping back to the topic,if we view the trend of employment opportunities in recent years,there are myriad of openings in each and every field.On the other hand part time jobs and freelancer jobs (which is the subject of discussion) are also becoming popular which is mostly invited by women particularly those are unable to work and also wanted to utilize the time constructively. Why not we segregate them first.There are data entry jobs,technical writing,home based projects,freelancer job. Amongst of them online surveys/paid surveys which are known as WORK FROM HOME JOBS are becoming popular with out any sound.I have read a lot of threads and messages from IL website.I’m getting three or four mails each day for online surveys.I keep reading these statements often.

    Get paid for your opinion
    Get paid for filling up surveys
    Just fill out sample forms and earn upto Rs.50,000 per month
    What I have extrapolated is that there are such jobs where we can start earning by investing something or some websites don’t charge any fee.Many people have confusions and doubts regarding it.Though there is a separate column(FAQ) on all websites relating to that they don’t exactly clarify our doubt.What am I asking is whether these websites on paid surveys are really genuine?Is there any authenticated proof for that?We are not able to view the exact scenario .Am I correct?As a first step towards it,we can test such websites by working for a month and check out.But how could we know that our work is acknowledged.The head offices are located out of India(I think IL ites out of India will know better.So kindly mail your ideas).Secondly they are asking our postal address to mail the amount earned by us.But how could we provide our address without knowing the reality?Practically speaking it is unsafe too.As I said earlier we don’t mind working for a month.We can even invest on it if it is really purposeful but is at the cost of our dilemma mind?.There are many known persons who take interest in joining but they are frightening to give their address.Needless to say there are lots of alerting messages and signals of alarm about online cheating,misuse of mobile phones.Though all websites provide many explanations connecting to privacy,our choice of subscribing?unsubscribing ,will they work out?Can we proceed without any hesitation?

    Finally a humble suggestion to all.Share your experiences if you can..You may write some known facts ,suggest a list of trusted websites (if you have really experienced it) and wipe out the nagging doubts and the dilemma associated with it.It will be really helpful for those who have an idea of working on it.

    Hi all,
    Long back i posted this thread.I have even replies for my polls.I think malspie had given the exact scenario of what i felt.:exactly: I think everybody would have come to a conclusion that "survey jobs online are only spam mails".I get minimum of two mails every day canvassing for online surveys.No trusted websites.:confused:

    Its a hoax. No rewards come easy. People have to be very cautious before they enter in to such mess. My friends have got in to trouble and I am also a victim of this hoax.

    Dear lotus,
    Thank you so much for your feedback.The fact is i am too much anxious about online surveys and some one year back,i thought of joining that and earn money.I gave too much importance and consulted many people out of craze.But right from the begining the fact that the websites asking for personal details like house address,phone number etc.It would also make sense that they will send the money earned to our address but still i was scared to give the address.How come with out having any proof in hand ,we can give the address.More over i felt that risk is involved in giving our personal details which i will never agree and i am not convinced at all.I was little bit worried and am very much cautious abt online cheating.Some thing always strikes my mind if those websites are really genuine it would have become popular.When many home based businesses like online medical transcription,technical writing gets recognition where in we have to put in our efforts,how come this online surveys involving a little work did not get much recognition.As i already mentioned paying dollars and cents just for filling up surveys is highly cheating.The main thing they try to exploit people's weakness which we must never fall into.I am indeed sad to come to this conclusion as it took a little bit time for me.I feel i have wasted my time analysing all such online jobs,took long hours for browsing etc.But any how i did not join at last.


    A suggestion to all Ilites

    1)Never try to join any faulty websites which give us false hopes, and a FAQ column consisting of utmost 15 questions which are most common.
    2)The websites are designed in such a way that they are highly convinsing and pleasing.
    3)I would like to insist one more point.In the FAQ Column there is a link which goes like this"If your questions are not answered please email your query to so and so address "which goes into another link.Believe me i have posted numerous number of questions/queries which i never got a reply even once.

    Hi malspie,
    Rightly said by you.:yes: I have poured in all my ideas and experiences in the previous post.:oops: Nothing is so easy in this world. As said by ish nalini ,the world is deceptive. Earning money on the net is something which always puts us in a dilemma:bangcomp: . So Never waste time and energy in that.
