opinion groups.com Complaint - scams online

Review by madman on 2005-03-03
speaking from experience: send e-mails from opin ion groups.com to your junk e-mail and block them. these companies and others like them should be banned from the internet!

Are you talking about groups who do surveys?

hi tander. thanks for the reply, no i am talking about www.internetopinion groups.com, these people promise you free gifts, like playstation2 if i did their survey, then sent me an e-mail stating if i picked 1 offer from them(not three as they changed it to later)i would recieve my gift-i then proceeded to join columbia house,which is one of their sponsors. after doing that i waited for them to send me a notice saying my gift was on it,s way. that was dec 30th, still nothing. i cannot stand to be ripped off, and that is what did happen. what is even worse, my wife said i would get ripped off. i am glad you arent getting scammed (AS I DID) i too like to enter these contests if they do what they promise

Yeah, I've had my sahre of problems with these so-called "opinion groups" who are not legit. Unfortunately, it has caused me to drop out of participation in many such groups, even the legit ones. They are all now automatically routed to the spam folder. Most of them keep trying to get me to participate in "promotional offers" rather than ask my opinion on anything.

THe only opinion groups I participate in now are those involving computer hardware or software I either own or participate in beta testing of. I found participation in opinion polls on social or political issues tended to result in thrid party spam, and quite a bit of "hate emails," so I stopped those as well.

Pretty much explains why many people hang up on polsters?
