Hot off the heels of yesterday’s post where I proved not all survey sites are scams and that you shouldn’t pay anyone to take surveys, comes the following email…

Hi Steve,

I received an email from saying I could make $1,500 a month in my spare time taking surveys. They want me to pay $49.99 up front to prove I’m a “serious job applicant.” Is this real? Thanks!

Sadly, it isn’t and here’s why…

Surveys4Checks is a Scam.

Now, let’s be clear on one thing first. There are legitimate online survey jobs. They cost nothing to join and they do pay out. Yes, you really can make money taking surveys; however, you will never make a full-time income doing so. That’s just not possible.

The scam here is that Sarah Garringer at is falsely leading people to believe that it is possible to quit your day job and work entirely from home taking surveys. She’s also leading you to believe that once you pay her $49.99 you become an employee of her company and then can log on and take as many surveys as time will allow. Herein lies the scam.

Take a look at the FAQ page where Sarah writes… charges a one time only registration fee because we only want serious job applicants filling out our surveys. If we allowed access to the surveys for free we would have “curiosity” applicants filling out survey applications that were not really serious about the surveys, and taking up applications intended for serious job applicants.

In the past we offered the program for free and found many surveys were not being completed and this pay could have gone to another, more reliable and serious survey taker. We want to weed out the “just curious” applicants from the “serious and reliable” survey employees.

This is complete and utter garbage. She uses the words “job applicants” and “survey employees” to mislead victims into sending her money thinking they’re getting a job. At no point will you ever be an employee of her company.

Instead, your $50 will get you a list of online survey companies and probably a few hints on how to take surveys. That’s a bit of a far cry from survey employee. The only redeeming quality of the site is the fact that they use Clickbank to process orders. Clickbank offers a 60-day refund guarantee on ANY order so you can at least get your money back.

Stay far way from this program and any others like it.

If you haven’t seen it yet, click here and check out the post I wrote yesterday. I took a few pictures of checks I’ve received from different survey companies. You can join them all today and start making money online too. Best of all, my information is completely free.

    Thanks for the warning I found you because I was suspicious, sounded to good to be true. The question is are there really any companies out there that pay any real money? (not just a dollar or two) Maybe at least $10. Rob

    many businesses nowadays do all ways to get the high money from our pocket with a low product or even nothing… no comment for the ones who earn money like this way. Is this seemed happening over the world now? more than 150 countries? In Vietnam, I feel bore and sick with HOMESHOPPING – Television program, very very perfect the advertisements, but the quality known by GOD! WHO CAN STOP THIS WILL BE THE SUPERMAN of this age.

    You’re right, I’ve bought the Kits. Nothing happens in 2 weeks. It’s time consuming and exhausting. When we entered in the member menu, sarah just give a free survey site link. I feel cheated, before I buy, I think that this site is a survey company and in fact just garbage links to the free survey sites.

    Thanks for the reviews. I hope no one get the same experience as me.
