Did you get an unexpected check from “Surveylot.com?” Cashing it could land you in debt and in jail! Read this post.

There are hundreds, maybe even thousands of outfits promising to show you how to make lots of money just taking online surveys. But face the reality, folks: unless your name is Simon Cowell and you can deliver it with the same bitchitude, your opinion ain’t worth that much.

The question is not whether to review a paid survey promise; the question is which one? I picked the first one that showed up as an ad in my Google mailbox screen: Surveylot.com.

The landing page promises:

Find free paid surveys, online jobs, and work-at-home opportunities right for You!
Fast, easy, and free!

Fortune 500 companies need your opinion. Get paid for it!
Work from home, choose your hours, earn up to $150/hr and $1,000+/week!

It’s easy, fast, and free™. To see the opportunities currently available for you, just fill out your ‘Search Profile’ and select your ‘Preferences’. You will get a free prequalified list of free to join companies, paid surveys, focus groups and consumer panels that will pay you for participating in market research studies. On the next page, you will also learn the secret of making serious money with these opportunities

So I selected the options that I wanted and signed up using the “Do I Qualify?” button (gee, I wonder if I will qualify). Why not? It’s free! Follow the results here.

There's only ONE program I really recommend. It helped me turn my 'hobby' into a $10,000+ per month money making machine. Click here for the exact formula I followed.

  4. I just got in and checked my mail and was amazed to find this big fat check, $2180 which I can surely use right about now. It just so amazing to have a check to be mailed to you in an envelope with no return address. After reading the enclosed instructions to be a customer service evaluator and the pay that come with it, sounded too good to be true. I decided to do my research and shonuff it is bogus. I contacted the bank to make sure that indeed that it was a legit cashier’s check, after being placed on hold for about 10 minutes, the verdict came back fraudulent. The account is a cashier’s account but no funds or deposit have been made to the account. So, you know what that means that if I would of cash this check I will be sitting in somebody jail and with times so hard right now and no job. I thank God for wise and knowledgable decisions. In spite of my situation that I am dealing with financially this is not the method to bring me out. Lord I thank you. **** Do not cash the check if you do you are stuck with excessive fees from your bank**** You are making the crooks who came up with this scam rich..

  5. Your concerns are being addressed. For all of you that have sacrificed your time and money…please take notice. A federal injuction is pending and the documentation and evidence will do the job. I LOVE MY JOB!!!!! This site will be going away. Along with the owners, for a long, long time. Yes, I said owners. There is no “KIM”. They do research to steal money from honest people. I do research to put them away. Done deal.

  9. i too am a victim of being scammed with these fake websites and fake money orders/checks. Recently I received multiple money orders all amounting to a lot of money and quickly I began to think “something just isn’t right.” UNFORTUNATELY I fell for the “first assignment” (oh I got involved with a “mystery shopper” scam) because everything seemed ok and sounded legit. I was told to deposit the money order into my account then “keep” $400 as compensation for my work and then take the rest ($510) and make a money transfer at a western union outlet as part of the assignment….well I only wish I would’ve stumbled upon this website BEFORE making that trip to my bank because then I would’ve known better than to do as I was told. Sure enough, the money order was a fraud and the bank ended up taking that money ($910 + $20 + $15) out from MY ACCOUNT because suddenly I had become liable for this fake check. Little did I know, all along I thought I WAS GETTING PAID…when in fact I was LOSING my money. Now, today I went to the bank with another check that I received in the mail with instructions for “another assignment” (not to make a deposit–fool me once shame on me, fool me twice shame on you) just to get the banks opinion on what they think is going on and surprise surprise, they told me something is definitely not right. So I DIDN’T make the deposit and instead I came home and emailed the person that’s been sending me the emails with assignment information asking them and as respectfully as I could, telling them to EFF off. Now get this, USUALLY it doesn’t take more than a few hours for any one of them (whoever is behind all of this crap) to reply to my emails but all day….i haven’t received ANYTHING from any one of them. While I really DO want to cut all ties with these people…I can’t help but get frustrated every time I think about the money that I lost. So, I can’t help but hope that SOMEONE will reply and give me a reason to strike back with SOMETHING to try to get my money back–i know this is all wishful thinking and telling from all the responses i’ve read on this page that money is as good as gone…but is there REALLY NOTHING we can do? obviously the cops aren’t doing much and none of us really seem to have any way of getting any answers from the scammers so…really, is this is? If anyone knows what I could do–please please please let me know. and if you are just an innocent person that came across this page to see if such websites about getting paid for surveys and what not is trustworthy—IT’S NOT. so do NOT fall for it. PLEASE!

  12. I received a cashiers check for $3,975.20 today from Surveylot.com. I went to try and cash it at several different place’s as well as my bank, and the bank wouldn’t take it, they said it was no good, it didn’t have enough numbers in the routing number to make legit. Other place’s such as Walmart would have, but there policeis is for checks under 3000.00, so I went home and got on the internet to check this place out, and fortunately I found out and was lucky I didn’t cash the check and be responsible to pay back, and I sure can’t off a fixed income, although I sure could have used the money. I was told numerous times not do these things online, that it would cause me trouble, and it sure could very done that. So as far as I’m concerned thy can stick this sturr where the SUNN don’t Shine…..

  13. Ok, I just got a check for $3,975.20. I talked to the guy who was in a big hurry to get me to complete my first assignment. He also told me how lucky I was to be getting this opportunity. If it’s to good to be true…..It’s to good to be true. I looked it up on Google and big surprize! It’s a scam. Thanks all for sharing.

  14. Hi, I live in Australia and was considering doing paid surveys through SurveyLot.com and have actually joined up with them but so far have not received any surveys. Just discovered this scam info about them – will I still get ripped off in OZ?! Is it any better here or just the same crap?! Always the way, too good to be true.

  15. Received check from your office. Need to rech David Karoby. Phone 1-289-888-1851 does not get through from here in Ohio. I was in the hospital last month in surgery and recovery. Just now opened your letter. Am ready to start. Thank You, R.S.V.P.

    1. Umm…James? Are you saying this is the reply you sent to the people who sent you the check? You don’t think we sent the check, right?

  16. I just received one of these checks in the mail today. Mine was sent from Canada, but it has an address from California on the inside…has anyone else received one like this?

  17. Thanks to all of you who have reported these incidents! It’s now March 25, 2009 & “SurveyLot” is still doing this with the checks in the mail. I got one today & decided to check it (Google) before doing anything else. I am very glad that you have all reported your experiences. My opinion is that we will all benefit more in the long run if we keep posting comments about their sites. I’ve worked in law enforcement and with Consumer Protection Div. of state attorney general’s office – they just don’t have the time/manpower/desire to pursue these mail fraud cases. Perhaps at the Federal level? I’d suggest keeping your check(s) & sending copies of everything to someone at the Federal level who could investigate interstate mail fraud. Who knows? We might get lucky & get someone arrested. It’s very unlikely, tho. Best thing is just keep people posted as to how easy it is to be scammed. Good Luck, and Thanks again to all who reported these scams.
