Joined an online social group for entrepreneurs. Saw a message from a man named Jay who offered to help people looking to make extra money. I contacted him to inquire. He referred me to two different online companies: MaverickMoneyMakers.com & surveyvault.co.uk.

Asked many questions, exchanged several emails, and then I figured out that this man was up to no good. Thankfully, I didn't sign up for either program (they both require you to pay to join). Here are some of the emails exchanged:


"one of the other sites i use to make money online is called survey vault,
You basically get paid $5 - $30 for filling out 10 minute paid market research surveys online.
They're just a bunch of questions from companies like burger king, virgin and Kodak etc. about products of theirs.

They tend to send out new ones every day so I usually sit down and fill a few out first thing in the morning and that makes me around $95 - $145 on good weeks....

The problem is there's a small processing fee of something like $25
But i know of a way to get around it if you need to so you don't have to pay.
As soon as you're a member you can earn it back within a few minutes anyway.

would you like me to find you the website link?

and if you're unsure about either one i wouldn't be offended if you asked me for some proof.
I would totally understand with all the scams that are out there these days.

Best wishes,


"thanks for sending me that link..... you mentioned that you know how to get around paying for the membership fee? how would i go about doing that? also, if you wouldn't mind showing me some kind of proof....i see that survey vault pays through paypal? thanks a lot for your help!"


"The way i got around paying the fee was i signed up and then asked for a refund straight after.
The friend who told me about it said they will give you lifetime free access as a gift to say sorry that
you were not satisfied with their service and it worked, i got free access and still do to this day.

survey vault proof should be attached. Its a screen shot of my paypal account but there might be a few ebay
transfers on there as well. if you want proof for maverick money makers feel free to ask.

Best wishes,


"copied from their website disclaimer:

'Please take into account before joining that the Survey Vault Admin/Processing fee is non refundable.'

also, how come when i went to the contact page and clicked on "skype me" your email address popped up?????"


"you mean on the contact page? it comes up as 'surveyvault' on mine.

And i read the disclaimer too, i think you have to ask for the refund within the first week of joining.
After that my friend says they start declining refunds.

Are you sure you read that skype button correctly?
it shouldn't come up with any email addresses, it should just be names.

Best wishes,


"from the FAQ page:

'If you have any other questions please visit the contact page to email me or skype us.'

when i clicked on skype, 'nosplashback' username came up!"


"Well that's very strange.
On mine the user name is 'surveyvault'

maybe you should use maverick money makers instead
if the surveyvault disclaimer has made you feel uncomfortable.
MMM have a 60day refund policy you can blatantly see on the front page.

And it makes me $13,000 - $27,000 a month. but its not one of those get-rich quick schemes so don't expect
that kind of money to fly in overnight without any work. but once you've set everything up it can be very rewarding.

Best wishes,


""well thats very strange" indeed!
nice try!!

i really hope that whom ever you have scammed money out of finds out about you and your shady business practices! i will be going back on yahoo groups and warning everyone about you and the affiliates that you mentioned i join.

what a crock! all i can say is what goes around comes around!

you suck!"


"F*** you, with a chainsaw.

I was trying to get referrals. I make 90% of that joining fee whenever someone signs up under my link. Thats why my name was on the contact page. But it doesn't matter now. You're clearly not going to sign up so stop wasting my time.

The links i sent you had my referral ID in them, and i would have gotten away with it, if it wasn't for you meddling kids.


As you have read, this man is a charlatan working for these companies....he said it himself! Please do research before you invest your time and money into a company. Anytime it promises "$11,259 dollars a day" or similar, or asks for startup costs or membership fees, it is most likely a scam.

This was the actions of an affiliate and not Maverick Money Makers or Survey Vault.

AUTHOR: Stan Levingson - (USA)

Hi Kat,

You seem to be reporting an individual for misleading you. They wanted you to sign up to maverick money makers & survey vault under their affiliate link so they can make a percentage of the sale. This is known as "Affiliate Marketing".

It's very wrong and unethical to mislead customers about these products just to make a sale but I don't think it's fair to blame the company. Affiliates these days will try anything to make a quick sale.

I hope you find what your looking for.

Best wishes,
Stan Levingson

#2 Consumer Suggestion

They are all the same

AUTHOR: Chatropolis - (U.S.A.)

I have worked my *** off for 15 years on the Internet to get to where these get rich quick scheme company's claim to get you over night. There is no such thing. If you had a secret to make 10 grand a day would you share it. I am still building my business and I won't give anyone the inside track for any price unless they wanted to pay me for 15 years of my time. So if you want to be like me and work from Costa Rica, only work a few hours a day, do whatever you like then just send me a check for oh say 3 million dollars and I'll site you down for 6 months and teach you everything. Otherwise you need to get rich the old fashioned way. Work hard, be better than your competition and work hard. Did I mention work hard? There also is working hard on top of that.

Self Made MULTI-MILLIONAIRE Blows The Doors Wide Open On The Internet Marketing Industry! You're About To Walk Into a Whole New Cash Generating World; The LARGEST And Most Amazingly Uncomplicated Methods On The Planet!

Tuesday 04/27/09

Hello Fellow PROFESSIONAL MONEY SEEKER, And thank you for reading this!

I would like to take this moment to introduce myself, My name is Justin Grodzicki and I've been working online for over the past 9 years evaluating and reviewing just about every online opportunity that has come across my desk, you name it and we have looked at it and much more. We've spent a lot of time and more money than we care to think about trying to find what really works for the masses! In upwards of $11,000.00 dollars, money we really didn't have!

Are we opportunity junkies? No, I'm just a normal everyday husband that has looked for a better way for my family and the masses! I guess you can say both my wife and I were on a MISSION!

So, if you're tired of wasting your time and hard earned money on INCOME OPPORTUNITIES and money making ideas that haven't worked or delivered, then it's no accident that you found this page.

All of the Products, Services, or Software recommendations on our site are based on our own successful evaluations of these products or services. Meaning we're making money with all of them!
WOW! I already sound like the so many "Internet Marketing Gurus" pitching their worthless information products. NO, we're not selling useless ebooks, Network Marketing Opportunities, or the like. I'm just someone who couldn't find a "Job" within my profession in this very poor job market, and was lucky enough to stumble across something called Affiliate Marketing and a Seasoned Internet Multi Millionaire Giant that was willing to teach us what to do Step by Step so we could become successfull Online. That was just a short time ago and the rest is history, as they say.

Take a few minutes to read on NOW, then just click the link at the bottom of this page because if you do, you WILL learn Step by Step how YOU TO can use Affiliate Marketing as a platform to transform your Financial Life & situation, regardless of your background, education or income level. All you will need is an open Mind and a Need!

We're proof, 100% of the money my wife and I needed to build our first home and much more all came from Affiliate Commissions earned by promoting products from well known Affiliate Programs.

We are here to let you in on a little secret that you may know about or may not and what it can do for you. It's said that it's Not always WHAT you know but WHO you know! WOW! How true this is!

We looked at everything that promised to make us money. We downloaded the so called killer eBooks and software. We joined several Network Marketing Uplines with the promise of a good life and Residual Income, but never seemed to get anywhere or get the support they promised. We looked at the many "Free Website" offers. We followed the advice of many blog-happy gurus. We attended many sales seminars and we watched many videos that claim to change your life, and SO MUCH MORE!

Basically, we did all the things that so many people get suckered into doing these days. So, Ask yourself how many programs you've bought in the past because you were told you could make money with them. Be honest. How many of those programs actually worked as advertised? I'm willing to bet NONE. If they had worked, you wouldn't be reading this - you would be on a beach somewhere in the Tropics Sipping Umbrella Drinks. Did any of those programs help you achieve Financial Freedom? Why Not? Read On!

We achieved Financial Freedom without "Getting Rich Quick". And now, Financial Freedom means being able to stay at home and spend the day with my wife and son. It means my wife doesn't have to go out to work. Yes, she just heads down the hall in her robe to the office! It means we can send our son to a private school. It means several family vacations every year with no worries when we have to be back! It means we never have to worry how we're going to make the next car or mortgage payment. It means not worrying about bills or debts.

What does FINANCIAL FREEDOM mean to YOU?

I can honestly say 100% this works! because at the time I was unemployed, we had little savings, and no wealthy relatives! And for the record: I was a Landscaper that was working 40 to 60 hours a week for $20.00 bucks an hour. Now, if we could pull this off, anyone can. We're about to show you how. This is something the so-called Internet Gurus WILL NEVER Show You, Tell You or Teach You!

Their Programs are always MISSING something and always seem to fall short of what they promise! My friend, this System has it all. Everything in this System will guide you and hold you by the hand and teach you everything you're looking for to become an Internet Marketing Pro. But don't take our word for it!

To learn more, we have put together a few short videos for you to view for free! Just click this link (((Redacted))) to the next page NOW because we know you really would like to find a better way. The information you will find there will give you all the answers you're looking for!

To your Success
Justin & Joanne Grodzicki
