            Dear Shay,

            Thanks for the info, that’s very helpful of you. I have two questions today.
            I was being asked to take a membership for 34 dollars, to be able to participate in paid online survey in one of the sites on that list. I am wondering if it is safe and genuine. Also, Have you got any idea about consumerresearchuk- is it a genuine paid survey portal, as they did asked for a membership as well.

            2.)I am currently in India. unfortunately, i wasnt able to find a job yet to make some money from home. any advice in this regard??

            Thank you for your help once again.

            Sincerely,

            A.Ravi tej.

              Hi! Which company are you referring to so I can update the link? All legitimate survey companies NEVER ask for fees so please do not pay the $34 to sign up. I’ll wait for your response… Talk soon!
