    My Fellow Indians,

    Do not join This survey company is a scam. I have been waiting for months for the payments, but they haven't sent me yet. Do not waste your time on this company.

    Vouchers issued history
    Issue Date Voucher Value Details

    I would use a screenshot but I dont know how to post pictures

    If you click on "history" on the left side of the page after you log in, voucher codes (If you ordered any) will be shown there. If not have you emailed them to let them know?

    Unfortunately I haven't seen an exception from this rule: survey sites are scams.

    By the way I was paid for taking surveys long ago, but those were local market research companies with a real agent face to face. They're not worth the time, like $30 per survey that takes 3 hours to finish.

    Again that was a local company, if they don't pay I can sue them, call the police, report them to the city ... but if the company is in the US and you are in India they can get away with it.

    Why don't you name some of those survey sites that paid you? I am sure a lot of people will be so interested to know.

    If you are not aware of the GPT scams, such sites pick some people, like yourself, and pay them to get their testimonials (like what you just did with valued opinions). They keep doing so while denying the rest. After a while when their scheme gets exposed they stop paying anyone and eventually they disappear.

    They are not a scam. Did you email them or try to call them to collect your money?

    I agree with talfighel. I get survey invites day after day and have made plenty with surveys. While I don't take them all of the time these days, I still use them when I'm in need of some extra cash here and there.

    Contact them and see why you didn't get paid? There has to be a reason behind it, or maybe there is a misunderstanding. You won't know until you hit them up.

    They are not scams, some pay and some don't. You just have to do your research just like anything else.

    This is really interesting. I have been a member of valued opinions for a few months now, but I'm yet to be able to reach their minimum for cash out. I do get survey invites quiet often. It would be really great to get more proofs whether they are a scam or not.

    defaultuser, I do hope you get your money.

    i have known that People have very different opinion about Valued options ...some say legit, some say's better if be very careful while going for valued surveys and best if you avoid such companies which are very doubtful and scam looking in their way of operating the business !!

    Not all survey sites are scams. Valued Opinions, however, is considered a scam. All it is is a survey site directory. It's a waste of time.

    Interesting, I hadn't heard about issues with Valued Opinions before. Then again, I am not in India. But they have been a pretty consistent site for me. Not one of the most active, but what I do like is that when I get invites I am almost always qualified to complete them.

    I have been doing Valued Opinion surveys for a few months now. Back in August last year I sent an email to them saying that I was unable to look at the rewards section of the site and the FAQs gave suggestions as to why this. Despite checking that I do not have pop up blockers on and using a variety of different browsers to access the site I am still no nearer and Valued Opinions are not interested.

    I thought I might be using a wrong password to access the site so I requested that they email me the password. Back came the reply that they do not have my email address on their records!!!

    It seems that I have been doing countless surveys for which I am not going to receive a penny.

    I have today attached a copy of the recent invitation I received via email to complete a survey showing that despite denying that I am registered with them they have been regularly sending me invites to complete questionnaires.

    It will be interesting to see how they explain that away.

    I am not sure about valued opinions India but the other valued opinions panel are legitimate. I know they do pay unless you break their policies. Don't use multiple accounts with them.
