    They only registered their website in July, which could explain why they have never been mentioned on MSE. They say 300 per month tax free - this seems very unrealistic.

    I just registered with them and you have to complete all 26 offers (and reach the 300 mark) before you can cash anything out. Am guessing there will be something in there that means I can't complete it. But, with nothing else to do on a Friday evening (2 kiddies off to bed in a mo and hubby in the middle east!) I might give it a go, see how far I get! lol

    Well, i've completed 2 offers but have realised that they wait for confirmation that you have done so, which they get from the company that you are signing up to for each offer. So if its anything like Swagbucks, half of them wont credit (and you can't get any payout unless all 26 are validated!).

    Am taking screen shots of the confirmation pages of each offer, and also saving the email confirmations into a folder called "Paid Offers" so I can prove that I completed them!! (Sceptical? Moi?)

    The picture of a lot of cash on their website is not a good sign: when has anyone ever made anything from such sites? This is similar to the picture of someone holding a big cheque ... not to mention "earn at home"!

    They appear to have been registered by a marketing company.

    Ha ha - well only on Offer 4 and can't progress unless I deposit 5 into an online Bingo account. Worth the risk....? Probably not!

    I have just come across this site myself and by offer 3 some of the questions (name, address, mothers maiden name etc.) started to make me suspicious that you will, over the 26 "surveys" be giving away most of your personal information, the type of which can be used to steal your identity. I have now stopped and will wait and see if others have genuine success... if they dare.

    I carried on with it the other night (I decided that 5 for an evenings entertainment on the Bingo site was OK and I had nothing else to do).

    This was offer number 4 for me.

    I signed up to the Bingo, deposited my 5, got the bonus on the Bingo site (and still have loads left - lol!). Then I went back to paidoffers.co.uk. It simply said there were no more offers available to me and to come back the next day.

    So I went back the next day and Offer number 4 (the Bingo) was listed as offer number 1, and offer number 1 has disappeared altogether, so now it looks like I have only completed 3 offers not 4 (and the amount of the money I am "accruing" has reduced as well).

    And unsurprisingly, its now Tuesday and i've not had a single offer available to me since Sat night.....

    It really does seem as though they are using unrealistic earnings as bait, just to get personal information or to up the number of visitors to their website.

    i joined and started to work through offers and when you get to about number 4 and 5 you have to start paying 5 or 10 pounds to join bingo or casino sites, you also have to complete and get validated for all 26 offers or you wont get paid. [text deleted by MSE Forum Team]

    Submission
    This company are part of the following group Submissiontechnology Co Uk

    You can see from their site what type of business they are involved with.

    I received their link via Spam e-mails so would avoid like the plague!
  • Fifi Bee
    I had an email from paidoffers.co.uk today and it seems too good to be true. Looking at the Submission Technology website homepage, the Market Reasearch box says 'we collect information from a broad reach of consumers via Paid Surveys and attract thousands of registrations a day'.

    Their email marketing page boasts that they can reach 1.2 million consumers and that these consumers' information is rented out to third parties!!

    I would always be very wary of websites like this, as there nearly always seems to be an obstacle in the way with regards to completing the required work and getting payment. The feedback on this forum about these type of online businesses is living proof that, these type of sites are full of BS.

    Paidoffers
    Hi,
    Just thought I would post my experience. I got to task 4, and asked to pay money. Decided not to and no alternatives for several days. Contacted the company who eventually reset it to a new offer. Offer 5 ok, but have been stuck on offer 6 for a week or so now. There are now 3 offers all requiring money to be deposited to continue. My total is now 185, quite handsome! But wait only 85 of it is valid. So if I join one of the three offers that 85 will go down in terms of profit.

    Like others my total has been reset with me losing some in the ether.

    Another side effect is that my post box and telephone line is now inundated with offers from people that are suspiciously similar to some of the companies I have signed up with!

    They are making claims that people have made loadsa money with them already.

    Trading Standards?

    Stay away

    am interested to hear if anyone actually gets paid from this site.

    I joined it and so far have got to offer 9 however i have noticed several of the offers havent validated yet, i did email support as i have kept evidence of every offer i have completed and i asked support what happen if an offer doesnt credit? do you simply keep trying until you have successfully completed 26 offers? or does one not validating mean that invalidates all the others and you dont get paid for any?

    I have not yet had a response, so for a new site that is trying to get new clients their customer services is non existent and if they cant reply to a simple query, i would think this is the way they dont pay people by 'not validating' a few offers so it is impossible to get paid and not replying to emails to resolve.

    Paidoffers : Keep Clear
    I wish I had read some of the items on this forum before I went ahead and joined. I too was hooked in by their promise of an easy way to earn cash. They claim it doesnt cost you anything but it does......

    I had got to stage 3 and was told there was no more offers available for that day and to return the next day. I have tried to get back onto the website but could not get back in. I have sent numerous emails via their website both requesting a password reminder and also asking them to contact me. No joy....

    I have even contacted mail@variant4.com as this address was where I was getting some of "paidoffers" emails from. Again, no joy....

    I have tried for over a week now and getting really fed up. I, like others, had started to accumulate money but obviously, there will be catches along the way and I guess, spending more money too.

    As the old saying goes: "if it looks too good to be true, it probably is".....I will be keeping well away from this type of scam in the future.....

    Paid offers Scam
    Had an email from a site called PaidOffers.co.uk. Had a quick search of the forum and couldn't find anything on them, but apologies if there is a thread somewhere on this site. Has anyone had any experience with them? The payments seem way too good to be true!

    to your self, so steer well clear, It seems to me that its all about getting your private details.

    Paidoffers.co.uk
    I would join you. My offer 8 turned into offer 4 again on Friday but i completed again and then it went back to offer 8 with no more offers available. I logged in again today and offer 8 is still showing with no more offers available however 40 of my 80 validated funds have disappeared! I still have 225 unvalidated funds which have been unvalidated for a few weeks and now validated funds (which surely have been validated) have disappeared. Again i have all the emails as proof of the offers i have completed and have emailed them again to ask what happens if offers dont validate? Where do i send proof to? and how validated funds have now been removed. This is my third email in 3 weeks and had no reply to any.

    I have now registered with this company and am on 3 of 26 companies, which they state, all we need to do is use our own details and say 'NO' to all offers and we can then expect to earn money, which is shown on your account each time you log in to the site.

    I have read so many negative comments about the money never being paid and also that they never reply back to individuals emails. Does anyone have any ones name or a telephone number, or better still has anyone ever been paid for doing these surveys?
    If I receive any advice as to it being a definite scam, I would like to ask any other people if they would join me in a Petition to Trading Standards for this site to be closed down. I appreciate, we should not expect anything for nothing, but they are using our details to give to other companies for a fee, and we should not stand for it. What say you?
