$75 CASH for a 15 minute road traffic survey

Got an email from MyView on Tuesday morning inviting me to a short screening survey for a road traffic interview. Got a phone call later that day to set up an appointment. The interviewer asked me some simple questions about road traffic and tolls. It took about 15 minutes and I received $75.

One of the best reasons to belong to many survey panels is that you sometimes get invoted to focus groups and products testing.

Mystery Shopper SCAM Alert !!!!!

Daily Telegraph reports that there's a mystery shopper scam to beware of, read article here:http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw-act/fake-cheques-trick-shoppers-local-mules-in-scam-to-launder-money/comments-e6freuzi-1225880603919

Gets me to thinking, it seems hard to believe anyone would fall for a scam as simple as this one. But they do, and if we are honest there has been a time when we have either fallen for, or nearly fallen for a scam. Whether it was sending money for a chain letter or buying something that didn't turn out to be what you expected....

So what is your, 'I have been scammed story??????'
