Surveylot.com update

I signed up for Surveylot.com and MySurvey.com on May 22. From May 31 to today, 59 spam messages have slipped through my filters into my Gmail inbox, most related to surveys, making money online, or “payday loans.” Coincidence? I think not. Read my original surveylot.com review.

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.

  1. Hi all,

    We need to get united and fight back these fraud! One true story I’ve heard was: a group of people got organized through an online forum. They scheduled a date and everybody called on that same day the number of the fraud people asking weird but hilarious questions like:
    -I want to order a cheese pizza.
    -What? You don’t have cheese pizza?
    -Don’t you deliver pizza for free?
    -Rats! Where’s my pizza?

    Use your imagination – it can be a real fun thing to do when a group of people get organized like that and share online what they just did! I read the record of such a group discussion and couldn’t stop laughing – it was like watching the funniest comedy! And, most important, this will drive whoever initiate the fraud crazy!

  2. When I had the other check and the information for the both checks I took it to bank of america and the police and they cant do anything about it it wont help them find anyone because everytime they do it they have a new network and new numbers to be contacted at. Like when I was scammed i called a 888 number and then all the sudden i was getting a call from a 646 and thats a number in new york so that right there should of told me alot.

  3. Megan, you might also want to take the check to the police or to your bank and ask them to report it as fraud. We’ll never catch these jerks if people don’t report them.

  5. No, you can’t. The check is fraudulent. It will be returned and the money will be taken out of your bank account, plus a returned check fee. I work at a credit union and one of our members was in this situation. She couldn’t pay the money back, so to get her account out of the negative ($1200) she had to get a loan. So she had to pay it all back plus interest. But she had wired the money to the scammers then realized she’d been taken.

  8. I got a letter in the mail 2 days ago and it said that I had won some sort of customer lottery, and that my name was pick from a customer database form large department stores and there was a $3900 dollar cashiers check. It told me that i was to contact these people and that the $3900 dollars was for the 10% taxes I would have to pay on my winnings. is this a scam?

  9. its been a few months since the issue happened to me. I found out it was a scam and I never heard from the guy again. I found out some of the people in my area has gotten hit witth the same scam. I owe bank of america 3900. and I can’t have a bank account until I pay the amount off and I also have to wait 5 years. 3 haven’t paid the bank yet back that’s a lot of money I don’t have right now. my credit score even went down on me.

  10. I’ve never been to this website, then today I receive a check for $4,500, with instructions signed by a Stephen A. (something) but below it’s typed a Tracey A. Jonz. The name on the check is from Brandenburg Service Company, 265 South Loomis Street, Cihicago (literally spelled this way) 60608, the bank named is Fifth Third Bank. What caught my attention and when I realized it was a scam was in the back of the letter it said that I can use $350 at Walmart, $350 at the Gap and Money Gram $3200 with a service charge of $100. It says that I can use the money how I feel, just to fax over the receipts, when I googled the number (two different numbers) one was in Canada and the fax number is for Washington State. Beware, thank God for Google!!! I was able to check this out before depositing the check and possibly going to jail for fraud!!!

  11. I found ads for surveylot.com on the Sports Illustated website. Why are these known scams allowed to advertise?

  13. My sister has also received a check from Reelcraft industries. Someone opened her mail and she has none of the other paperwork that came with the check. We googled the company and it seems to be legit. I think it is a scam though. Why would a company send you $4900.00 for no reason? Any one have any info on this?

  14. Sorry to hear about that, Amber. Let us know how it works out for you.

    I have received a check for 4900 in the mail today from surverylot as well today. I called Fifth third bank to verify the account. They could not verify at the # that I called. I was query about the check for the business name was reelcraft industries in (in) so I tried to find the business on 411.com could not locate. So then I pulled up the bank and the bank was true but the buisness was not so that told me that something was not right. I then immediately ripped up that check and threw it in the trash after reading all these reviews.

    this is a total scam i just checked my account and am overdrawn by almost $5,000.00 because there were insificent funds in the other account. we called the bank where the check was “written” from and they said it was a scam! i am in agreence with you though i should not be alowed acess to the money if it hasnt cleared i would have much rather waited for them to clear it before i spent all the money and now have to go through this!

  17. Sorry Alisha, sounds like you were victim of a popular scam. I work at a credit union, and we see this all the time. Your check has probably been returned by now. The scammers send a check claiming you won somethings, you wire them the money, and never hear from them again. Another big one is the e-mails of people asking for money, they’re having a rough time, etc. They just need a little money to get them through, and they’ll pay you back more than they borrowed. Don’t fall for these! Sorry to hear about this.

  18. I think I am a new victim of fraud for these people. I got 2 checks in the mail the first check was of $3,900 the second check is of $20,000. A person told me to deposit the first check of 3900 in my account and when it clears to give them a call back. I put the check in last night and today it was cleared with my bank. I took the money to a money gram and sent out 2925.73 to a person for tax purposes. I sent the money out to the person and I have such a bad feeling about this whole thing. Now they are saying that i didnt do any surveys for this company and they are going to be sending me a package over ups tomorrow with the survey and then i have to fax it in to them and after its processed i can put the check for 20,000 in my account. Now im all nervous because i found out that the funds are still on hold for my account and the check needed some more time to process. I have notified both my bank and the precinct of the situation and they told me to give it time to find out if its a real check or not. My thing is if it wasnt a real check why would they let all the funds be avaible the very next day and the teller let me take it out. So right now It could be the possiblity that I am a victim and i have to pay back all 3900 back to the bank or I actually did win something and everything is alright…
