What a disgrace! I CANNOT BELIEVE IT!

Don't get me wrong. Ciao surveys is a great site that has paid me many times, and even though I don't qualify for some surveys, there is alot that I do qualify for. However, I was just a little bit more than HALF WAY when I got the "sorry you are not qualified for this survey" Well excuse me but I completed more than half and suddenly I don't "qualify" after spending more than 10 minutes answering your question! Mind you, I'm more disgraced about the questions I got asked! Just to name a few: - Are you pregnant? - Do you get "wet"? - How long does your menstrual cycle last including the last stage with white dots. _ Days of your period lasting and days till you get it again. etc. I answered these personal questions and after I give away that answer, "I don't qualify." Mind you. These are very private questions, so I did fib about some. :) Serves em right though, telling me I don't qualify after doing half the survey...

Hello Pweety, I haven't got any single update ever since Ciao since they stop allowing and paying foreign users last year. i dunoo what has happened to them but somehow, they aren't they way they used to, quality had gone wrong some how.

I have stopped using Ciao too. I was quite irritated and annoyed by the fact that they said they will pay foreign users. I even sent a mail to them to ask them when will it be and now what was the answer??? "Note that you should have a UK bank account". I was like WTF? Now I'm puzzled whether they are a scam organisation or what. .

Yes i agree with you that it's a bit unfair on your part. You did answer the question an being honest as possible about it. But then it's not right that they would just deemed you not qualified. On what ground...I am curious too. I want to know.

Yes I believe it. Ciao does have some strange things. I don't like ciao,but they do have surveys regularly.So whe I felt bored I log on my account to do some surveys. if you do want to join some survey sites you can read my articles about them. I have written a few articles to tell people my opinions about different survey sites.

it happened to me one time like i waste my time answering those survey then at the end the page disappear so i thought everything was submitted, then when i check my account its still zero, i contact the site support and they said that if i didnt see any page saying i completed my survey it means my country did not qualify. huh, is it? why they allow me to take the survey in the first place if they can do that from the start.

That is why I don't do surveys anymore. They had my age, race, location, and still they kept giving me surveys I did not qualify for. And all that marketing research they are allegedly doing would not qualify for the tail end of the baby boomers. So that will be their own fault if the companies they represent go out of business. That's some consolation for me anyway.

Believe it or not I've seen that kind of thing happen. As you go through a servey if they don't like your answers (seeing as answers are recorded as you make them) they heve every right to say 'sorry you're not what we're looking for." Though I'll admit, if some servey was asking me those types of questions. I would have backed out of it. Its not a health screening, so I don't give a damn. Even if it was, I would sooner hit the person who asked me then actually answer the question. (And, believe me the one and only time I did a physical, I tried to hit the doctor when he asked me "are you sexually active") So yeah, that type of servey, or questionire I wouldn't even proced with.

Well, maybe they don't have intentions of paying you in the first place. You know this sites pretend to be legit but are really not. Oh well! Better move along and look forward. No use crying over spilled milk. Look for other sites and work hard and smart so that you can make up for lost time with Ciao.

Maybe just another scammers prowling the net and looking for their victims.. Be careful.
