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:
