Speak Asia is a survey company from Singapore. It promises to 5 times the money u had deposited in their account. They claim that they get money from survey companies. Suppose if u deposit one lakh rupees u will get 5 lakh rupees. They says they do surveys for companies like Airtel and Tata Motors. But today i heard on news that this company is a scam and the companies like Airtel and Tata Motors has refused that speak asia do the survey for them. Everyday this comapny had 35,000 members from India. So I want to tell u that pls dont join this company as it may cheat u. Cheers.

Thanks for the news after reading this i watch the new on local news channel too and was lucky i guess i haven't tried that site out my friends had join it and was paid i guess but now he is also worried a bit but he say that he has recovered the amount of money he has invested so i guess he is lucky too. also he has register in another survey site just like speakasia called ramsurvey in which he has invested 3500rs for an year with the same system of 2 survey per week and earn 250rs doing each of those i don't know whether he has received payment from this but i think its going to of scam soon that's why i always prefer only those jobs who never ask for invest inorder to get paid by them

thanx swats89 for this gr8 information. i was thinking to join speak-asia but ur information given is quite good for me. But i've a question if it is a scam many of my friends joined speakasia & they got cash too even some of my friends earned about Rs.250000/- approx. Or they do for it to promote their website in starting? There are many registration centers for speak-asia in many cities. U shared that Airtel & tata motors refused about what speak-asia says but are there many other companies to which do the same for speak-asia? It got me something confused in this manner but atlast i'll not going to join this website.

Thanks for warning us. Also thanks we have mylot to make aware to innocent netizens. Sure people like to earn money thru' internet , but in the end there are more traitors who likes to grab money from us. What a criminal world , very disappointed and shy this is a Singapore based company. Perhaps should file a complain to the Singapore Trade Ministry and Criminal Dept. I know Singapore is a no nonsense country. They will look into it.

Several of my colleagues have joined this company and wanted me to join it too. I told them to give payment proofs. All of them refuse. This is undoubtedly a fraud company.

HI! Some other mylotters here also warn the same issue. They can't simply promise us those rewards as it is impossible. Usually survey sites won't ask for deposit money and if they did it must be something wrong with it.

Hello you are doing great job to aware lotters from scam sites. I think one should not be invest any amount in on line business untill he assured himself from all sides.

Hey swats89, this is a company that must be based in Europe, haven't heard of it here in the USA. But I'll be more than happy to spread the word, however majority of my friends are in the USA. We don't usually join up with just any company, without first verifying the legitimacy of the claim of wrong doing is correct. I'm not saying that your warning isn't true, I'm just saying every company deserves a opportunity to defend themselves.

well.. since I am from the philippines I guess it won;t matter to me? THen again, who knows, maybe a similar survey company will show up here. Anyways, there are a lot of people scamming others. It's really disappointing but that's just the way it is. THe world isn't full of people with good intentions.

thanks ^^ ., today i was searching for some other sites that i can earn money and have fun at the same time.. then i found this site that opened my mind and found out that there are a lot of people who are being scammed/cheated by companies like that. My opinion for this dilemma is that someone should really take care of this... they let people like us expect of something that is totally absurd to get. cheers to you too hunni, and thanks again for helping ^^.

Speakasia looks like a legit website on my first impression. But I didn't know it was a scam. I thought website from Singapore are mostly trustable, thanks for bringing this to my attention.
