I signed up a few months ago. I have been hearing they are a scam but it's free to join so I thought I'd try it and see what happens. They don't give you a lot of surveys. I signed in today after more than a week of not signing in because they don't give a lot of surveys. Well it seems they canceled my account because I can't sign in. I think maybe I used the wrong user name so send a request to get my email and it says my email address is not in the database. I had about $40 in the account. Has this happened to anyone here?

Check out www.awsurveyscam.com This site provides vital info regarding the scam AWsurveys runs. I lost well over $200 to those A$$holes, trust me, they are a scam.

I never spent much time on the site, I lost my account due to referral fraud or some crap like that. I got paid twice, but they claimed that they don't pay internationally by check, but their TOS never said this until after I got on them about it. They don't care about those who are honest, they realize they're losing money and won't pay, and that's why there are never any new surveys.

Yes it happened to a lot of people. that is why we all say it is a scam. Better yet it is not even a survey site moren an opinion site. You visit some sites and tell your opinion. Tou most likely will not even get an answer from them why your account was cancelled.

I don't think I'm even going to try to email them.

Well, apparently someone else on here has been paid, but get this: they take out $25 for withdrawal fee! So the person who got paid didn't even get the full $75!! I haven't received any more surveys either. Probably never will. I'll give it another month or two; I'll keep logging on every now-and-then. After that, I just won't bother anymore. I've heard that other people who tried to collect payment got told that they violated rules, etc. and weren't awarded thier money. Scam, scam, scam, scam, SCAM!!! All I can say. Well, that, and that it seems to be a big fat waste of time.

In some of these site i don't know for what reason they think if some persons might try to cheat or what? i've been tagged by a friend and i signed up. when i checked to see if there is some survey for me i was asked to signed up and that my accounts not in their database. when i started filling the form they said again no two persons should register in a household. i was confused and just stopped. i never checked again.

Yep, I cashed out and then nothing, and then I couldn't get in...total waste of time.

I knew the program was a scam as soon as I saw the first "survey." What was it? I think they "paid" you $4 to give a brief opinion about one website. Who in the heck is going to pay someone $4 just to write a few words or sentences about one website? There never were any more "survey" after I finished the first batch of them. My balance like most, was about $26. I know someone who actually reached the "payout" amount because he had plenty of referrals but once he requested payout his account was canceled and the P.O. cited guy cheated somehow. Any ways, no need to waste time with this program. It's a complete joke.

I've just had a look at the site because I have never heard of it before and to be honest I wouldn't join even if it is free. There is something about it that doesn't seem right. The site appears unprofessional and they are claiming to have the highest paid surveys. Genuine survey companies don't claim they will pay you loads of money really quickly and I wouldn't trust to give them your paypal account details. You have to be careful with sites that claim everything even if they are free. Be very careful when giving out your personal details to anyone.

Been there, done that. Same thing happened to me...i contacted them and they corrected the account, but quite honestly it's not even worth it. They don't give you surveys like they need to and you can't even cash out until you've reached 75, if they even really give you the money. But, yeah, you can contact them tell them what happened and they usually have it fixed in no time. God bless

I also join AW Surveys,but I think I have different problem. I only have $ 26 in my account, since the I have completed all the offers, I never get any new offers and I can't redeem my money because it says that the choices minimum to redeem the money is $75. And about the password, few days ago I can't log in, but I'm very sure that I have the right password. I tried to report for a forgotten password and it says that the new password will be send to my email, but until the day it never came.
