Company: Dollar Surveys
Leadership: James Walthall, CEO
Welcome to my 3rd party review of Dollar Surveys (DS)!
Before we dive in, I would like to point out that I will never recommend any of the companies that I review because that is your job.
I simply provide information to you so that you can make the most educated decision possible.
From time to time I come across a company that I label as a scam.
It is unfortunate but Dollar Surveys is one of those companies. If you are thinking about joining this company, I am asking you to reconsider and find another way to generate income online.
This company has a history of treating their members unfairly.
This review will be structured a bit different than most of my others because I will spend most of the time proving my claim that Dollar Surveys is a scam.
You are way better off trying to find a full-time online income generator anyway.
By the way, since I am a 3rd party reviewer, I have ZERO affiliation with any of the companies I review.
This allows you to take the following information for what it is.
The Dollar Surveys Website
You can tell a lot about the company by looking at the website.
The first thing I notice about the website is that they make the program seem so easy.
Take a look at the image above for proof. If it was this easy, everyone would be doing it.
The fact of the matter is much different because many people give up with this program before they even reach the $30 cash out mark.
This is speaks volumes for how easy this program really is.
The next thing I notice on the website is the “Over $2Million in rewards paid to our Members” sign at the top.
I would like DS to provide us with an Income Disclosure Statement so we can see how many members were paid and how often people do not receive their payments on time, or at all.
PayPal has a great reputation and I have had great success with it.
In fact, after two years of using it, I have never had an issue.
At least DS realizes the importance of PayPal but I wonder how long PayPal would want to be associated with a company with such poor business standards.
I guess time will tell.
Overall, the website is subpar and has little to no information about the company and its leadership.
This is yet another red flag that the company is not worth your time.
Is Dollar Surveys Worth Your Time?
Some of the surveys are simple and take 5 minutes or less.
Other surveys are more comprehensive and take around 30 minutes.
DS claims that they want you to have fun with the surveys but I’m not sure that is possible.
The problem is the fact that DS does not discuss how much you will be making for each survey you complete.
They don’t even discuss a range, which seems crazy to me.
Why would anyone want to get involved with a company that does not discuss pay.
It seems like DS wants to avoid that issues all together because there are so many complaints about not getting paid for their time.
How is Dollar Surveys a Scam?
DS will not pay you for the surveys you complete and will not respond to you when you contact them to get credit for the surveys you complete.
This is the first reason on a long list of reason that I cannot recommend this company to anyone.
Not to mention the fact that there are high cash out figures that you have to reach before even attempting to get your money.
I would also like to take the time to point out the quality of their website.
It is a basic site that looks more like a middle school programming project than a successful and credible money maker.
This is a red flag that many people overlook but many scams have poor quality websites.
Other Issues I Have With DS
There are other issues with the company and I will go over them one at a time.
The website provides you with contact information including a customer service email address.
The problem is the fact that you will always get an automated message from them if you have an issue.
This is annoying and proves that they care little about their members.
I want to communicate with a person and not a computer.
NO CREDIT FOR DOING SURVEYS
One would think that not getting paid would be the biggest issues with DS.
However, around 50% of members are complaining about not getting credit for the surveys they complete.
This is a horrendous percentage and to be honest, DS should be ashamed of themselves.
With percentages that abysmal, you can assume that the company stopped trying.
There is no way that a credible business could have satisfaction levels that bad.
The Better Business Bureau
As you can see from the image, Dollar Surveys is another name for a company called Digital Branding LLC.
This company seems to have been accredited by BBB in January of 2016 and has a perfect score.
I highly recommend that you check out the DS BBB Page, so you can take advantage of this site and all of its information.
It is one of my go-to sites when reviewing online business opportunities.
Even though DS has been accredited by BBB and they have a perfect grade, there are issues that we still need to discuss.
There are 1 negative review and 3 complaints about the company.
I wish I could report that there is positive feedback as well but I cannot.
Let’s take a look at each complaint and break it down.
Although this comment is a bit tough to decode, it seems like “Cathy N.” is labeling this scam because she is not receiving any of the items she is being promised.
This is a major issues and common when dealing with any of the companies that fall under the Digital Branding LLC umbrella.
Let’s take a look at the next.
Once again, this person is complaining about not receiving what was promised and labeling the company a scam.
He/she is also getting spammed with texts, emails and phone calls from marketers.
This is a red flag if I have ever seen one.
It seems like it would be tough to recommend any of the companies affiliated with Digital Branding LLC.
After reading the final few complaints, I came to a realization.
The reason Digital Branding LLC has a perfect grade is because they deal with the customer complaints.
All of the complaints were dealt with in a satisfactory manner according to the complainers and some complaints were completely removed from the BBB database.
Although you cannot say DS does not handle their problems, you can say that the company is far from perfect and in most cases, a waste of your time.
The Final Verdict
Throughout the review you have probably seen some things you like and dislike.
With that being said, I cannot recommend a website that has had issues with paying their members on time, or at all.
The entire purpose of generating income online is to get PAID.
If a company is unable to do so, why the heck would you waste your time and money.
OK, great, some people may have no issues with the company but a fair number of people were scammed out of money.
For most of us, time is money and we don’t have a lot of time. So it is important to utilize it as effectively as possible.
I have also seen complaints of people getting disconnected from the website while conducting a survey.
They would obviously get no credit for it and once again waste their time.
The final nail in the coffin is the fact that you can’t make a living off of completing surveys online.
There are ways you can make serious money online.
Have you ever thought about creating your online business.
Believe it or not, many people have a great business idea but have no idea how to get started.
There are amazing training programs out there that teach you how to create an online business.
You can even go to YouTube and watch one of the thousands of tutorials.
If you are looking for a great way to get started, check out this review.
The program is fantastic.
The best part about it is the fact that you can talk to experienced online entrepreneurs that started out just like you.
I hope this review helped you, and you have take the next step in your journey to financial success.
