    'Paid Surveys' IS the company name.
    I receive emails from them as well.

    Did you sign up with them , I've read the faqs and it seems like they have a list of survey sites that you join through them after egistering

    I have heard of them, they don't have any surveys, just a list of survey sites, and if you join those via their links they will earn money.

    I've had six emails from them so far today. They just keep spamming. The emails go straight to my spam box and I haven't bothered to open them. Any worthy company wouldn't need to do this just to sign someone up.
    Don't mess with pensioners. :cool:

    I thought they looked a bit suss. Nice looking website with loads of click-throughs all down the left side.
    Not what you would expect from a proper survey site. If I wanted to earn someone a referral fees, I would set my own site up and click through from that. One more for the blocked list me thinks.

    I don't think they come from the company. I have had dozens of them lately, and they come from different addresses each time.

    I suspect the company pays affiliates for each sign up they get, and provides them with an email, to send to people who have opted in to get emails from them, obviously. Which is why I get the same email from different addresses and the link in it contains a different number.

    Which fits in with the company, they want to make money but not by their own effort. So they try to make money from people who sign up to things through their links. But instead of working to get people to sign up, they pay others to do it for them.

    I used Yougov which worked great the first year i earned £50, then it took another 3 years to earn another £50... seems like the surveys become less frequent
