Yes I have done a couple of Surveys for a survey Comapany from Germany and they have their office based in India. Though they pay you in Indian rupees they want you to spend this amount in indiatimes.com or some other site resemling like that to have goods in return. Well I have answered a couple of them so far after that I never got any reply from them and I never even bothered to see if they have paid me any thing so far. This forum I have joined just a few months back only. Just today I have seen a request for completing one more survey for them which I haven't done so far. I will come back to you once I complete this survey and after checking my account with them if I have been paid anything for my previous Survey or not! Till then Good bye ! Thanks!

They have neat interfaces that let you create your own survey, You could be making business decisions based on survey results that don't mean anything. invite others to participate — they can make you look really talented to your co-workers, maybe even to your boss. Some of them have catchy tag lines about their services, like "Easiest way to ask, fastest way to know", or "Because knowledge is everything". It certainly sounds like the results of these surveys provide real, actionable information that can be used to drive decisions and performance in the organization. Here's the "dirty little secret" they don't want you to know about the surveys and questionnaires they offer: They can't tell you if the survey you create is reliable. And if it can't be shown to be reliable, you can't prove that its results are valid. What's reliability and validity? In real simple terms, reliability means the results would look the same if you repeated the survey with the same people the next day. Validity means your instrument measures what you say it measures.

I have been very leary of anything that promises something free. I stuck with a survey for almost an hour once just to see. It went on until I agreed to buy something. I tried it again and in the first couple minutes I agreed to buy something and like a miracle the survey was over. I did not complete the transaction because the prise was nothing I was interested in so I don't know if they pay. But I think they are no more than another marketing tool.
