Sites that say US citizens only.

March 12, 2008 7:28pm CST
I am in the UK and often find sites that I want to join and earn off of that say they are only for US citizens which I find frustrating. I do understand the basics of why this is but there is one imparticular that has caught my eye that I am desperate to start on. Can anyone think of a way round this or anything I can actively do to try and have it changed?

There is nothing you can do to get around this. Even if you lie and say you are from the United States they will know your not, from your ip address. I have tried it so I know. Most of the survey sites are from the US and even though they say that, I have signed up with them, but I never get a survey from them, because they know. So no, there is noway around it and there is nothing I know of that you can do about it. I am interested in reading the other responses you have on this to see if anyone knows of anything you can do about it.

Yeah some sites only for the region base. I have joined some international survey sites but they are offering surveys they sent to me when i am registering they said only for us,uk,ca etc. not for India. I have joined "" is a site which have lots of offer but accepting user from international but the offers i select was not related to my country its waste to join that site.

Yes, this is very frustrating, and limitations grow depending on where you are from, in fact you being from the UK have access to many more sites than a lot of other people, but this is the way things are right now, let's hope in the future more programs will open up that will have no such limitations.

I wish I knew what to tell you here because I have had alot of people who want to join the sites I am with and 99% of them are not from the United States. I think if you had an IP or U.S. address, that would possibly work but I am not sure of it.
