Opinion Outpost.com, recent merger with Survey Sampling International , LLC Group has brought many changes, the site itself changed, the surveys got to where they seemed to be written by uneducated scatterbrains, then survey payout amounts cut, next 1,000's of people have had their account frozen because of "data" concerns ,with SSI & Opinion Outpost & Chooz and numerous other survey sites pocketing I'm guessing in $MILLIONS$ from the frozen accounts. Yet they continue to sign up new recruits. I was a member for 5 yrs. in good standing and my account was frozen and I have yet to be given a REAL reason " by SSI or Opinion Outpost " ---.
I was sent an email from someone, no idea who ,there wasn't a return email, the email stated that when the companies merged they started throwing out people they thought were "cashing out too much" and had been taking surveys for a long time since they might know how to "manipulate" the system to make more money. Like I said, I have been doing surveys 5 years and I do make good money some months , some I don't ,it's hit & miss. But it is NOT BECAUSE I know how to manipulate any system. And, if I am making legitimate money, they are also.
It seems to me learning to manipulate ANY survey site takes away a large part of MY PURPOSE - having fun , and telling it like it is, WHICH GOES ALONG with gift cards , checks , cash , prizes etc.... in which I do not lie NOR manipulate SSI Group or any site to get. But Opinion Outpost has twice now taken money that doesn't belong to them from me alone,The first time being when their site switched over , they didn't transfer my points & now they pocket ,I'm guessing , MILLIONS of U.S. & Foreign Site Foreign Dollars. Eh , so what is the tally up to so far as to how many panelist have been kicked to the curb SSI?
I was hoping I had been wrong ! but since October nothing has changed. I do believe or would like to believe that if Opinion Outpost knew how their panelist were going to end being treated with the merger of Survey Sampling International,LLC , that they might have thought differently, THEN AGAIN , they may have changed SO MUCH NOW THAT THEY HAVE LEARNED TO MANIPULATE THEIR PANELIST?, a 50 cent survey for what they say at the beginning is for 5 minutes, ends up being 30 minutes & of course I'm not like a lot of fellow surveyors I know that will email and complain about 50 cents , it's more than I had 30 minutes ago. AND GUESS WHAT? I made 50 cents without cheating !
Never knew there was a way to cheat. Data concerns is the reason they kicked me out , told not accurate probably .My data has been good for years !Very Accurate ! I tell the truth ! Since when in America can you get accused of having bad data & not show proof of what that data is? ,I have the proof of data on my computer, it's not erasable, most people should know that, I know I don't manipulate your system SSI AND OPINION OUTPOST ! & YOU KNOW I'M NOT & YOU ALSO KNOW MY SURVEY ANSWERS ARE VALID & I have no wish to aspire to learn how to manipulate ,lie or cheat your company. So WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE ? Oh I forget, you expect us the panelist to be honest & give GIVE TRUTHFUL ANSWERS, but we may never know why 1000's were kicked out .....
