If you gain access to their take survey page, you will see that you must view a video before taking a survey as well as their is an Adsense ad below that video. Makes me feel they are using users for traffic to get paid through Google.
The actions of this website remind me closely of CircumNews. Up-Survey states they are paid to create surveys and they pay you to take them. Sound familiar? CircumNews stated they were paid to advertise articles and they pay you read them.
They also have very similar red flags:
- Pays $14 to take a survey.
- Pays $15 to refer someone.
- Payout is currently $500 minimum.
- They ask for your PayPal account #, not email address. (You can get payment at any moment if you have the minimum sum. For that you need to enter Login and your account number in PayPal or Payza. Payments will be sent every 14 workdays.)
- Newly registered site. (Feb 18, 2015)
- No contact information. Only a contact form.
I would stay far away from this website. But if you think it is worth your time, I would proceed with caution.****They also have another site called SurveyTrendO that people are being redirected to!
