    Well, I think she might find it quite interesting - I think I would!
    There is much to learn through the questions asked.

    Yes, she should take the money - £100 to complete a survey? Lead me to it!
    I did one a few years ago and only got paid £12 for it - I think it was on washing powder.

    Take the money, Heather and treat yourself. It will be quite an experience and nothing - even Heather's uninformed answers - is without its value.
  • If you are not sure about this then don't do it.

    Essentially, if the company are giving £100 to participants, they must be making an absolute mint to undertake the survey, so go for it!

    However, I have probably just said, in a round about way, that it is o.k. to steal from a supermarket, which I don't think is o.k.!:eek:
  • haha, yes of course she should take it.

    I once 'earnt' £150 by sitting on a survey panel for expensive home gadgets. I had to lie about owning lots of flash designer stuff (although i did have a couple of them).

    Everyone else was lying too, we all chatted on the way back after about it. There's a lot of people who 'do the rounds' and make up fake names/jobs for the purposes of the surveys

    Why should she ltell a lie for £100

    Why would anyone lie period
    No wonder the moral fabric of this country is suffering

    If the boot was on the other foot,& it affected you directly & financially, those who agree might find then it wrong.

    As i said, those who tell lies think nothing of it & also contribute to everyone who suffers,
    The common answer is, every one else does it , that does not make it right,

    in a one word answer....YES.
    obviously she should, my only concern would be other companies hassling her after she's given her details, as to get the £100, she'd have to give her address or even worse, bank details.
    But, as for the £100, yes
  • Any chance of getting some free money is not worth turning down. £100? If the company organising the survey can't be more selective about who has access to the questionaire then more fool them. Anyway, she might learn a thing or two and decide that a career change might be a good idea. Accounting for goodness sake? It's not rocket science is it. But then what is? (Apart from rocket science)

    I say, 'Go For It' . . .

    unless it's Heather Mills, then she has enough money under false pretences anyway
    . . . there's debt you have to pay, and debt you can get away with . . know the difference . . they can't hang you for it!!!

    I agree. So far you are the first person to say "No". What has happened to honesty, honour etc.? The British used to be famed for theirword being their bond. No longer, it seems. (But where does one find surveys that pay? I've answered surveys lots of times, but was never offered money for it.) Barri.

    I think Dorrie and I both said 'No' too. Ron81 is right that it's a sad indictment on our society that lying is deemed so acceptable.
