I had been a member for years and one day I got a threatening email from Carol Adams accusing me of fraud and threatening legal action and then closed my account. I think this was nothing but a witch hunt as I had amassed over 25,000 points.
These people are crooks and one day it's going to bite them in the butt. Steer clear of them or you will get burned.

dont bother with mysurvey....i had been a member for years with no problems..then my wife got sick with cancer and i was offline for a while taking care of her. when she was done with treatment and i had a chance to go online i saw a slew of mail to deal with. did so then decided to check in with the survey sites i was a member of, 1 being mysurvey. i couldnt sign in i emailed them and asked why. got a reply about no longer a member due to reporting them as spam, which i hadnt done. i replied and explained i didnt,been offline taking care of sick wife, blah blah...also explained that sometimes aol will report emails as spam that isnt spam so i assumed this is what happened while i was offline. i got a form reply back saying to be reinstated i need to do 3 things..to admit i did report them as spam and it was an accident but it was my fault. to claim i will never do it again and to admit that i wanted mail from them again..they wanted me to lie and say i reported them when i didnt. they were so non compassionate and dishonest. i see them as dishonest since they were wanting me to lie. and claim i did something i didn't do. i replied back saying again i didnt, was offline, aol blah blah blah and since they wanted me to lie that shows how dishonest of a company they are as well as lacking empathy for my situation. told them i no longer wanted to be a member of mysurvey, a company like that. then guess what i got this morning..another email from them telling me how to have my acct turned on and again wanting me to lie. seriously? are they nothing but bots? obviously no one read my email from the other day..just dont bother with them..other survey companies i am a member of when i explained my situation they offered condolences about my wife and kind words..i am still members of those..mysurvey..no thank you ever again..

FORGET IT

Have successfully redeemed my rewards points before. But lately, MySurvey seems to turn scam. Vouchers redeemed since Apr 2014 were not delivered . And every inquiry I sent regarding the redemptions were replied with same TEDIOUS standard response....already losing count of how many messages I have sent.
Definitely will NOT recommend MySurveyto anyone
10:10am on October 2nd, 2014
Take months and no sight of my redemption:
Dear MySurvey Member,
Thank you your message.
I am so sorry about the late reply, however we are still waiting for the provider's reply. I will contact you as soon as I have more information about your transaction.
I apologize for any inconveniences that this has caused you.

Ok I have been taking surveys for a long time now, one day I get an email stating I can start taking surveys on my android phone via app install. So I did I figure when I am not at my P/C I can do survey;s on my phone how convenient. (NOT) Since I installed this app not only do I no longer get surveys on my P/C but none on the smart phone either. So as this becomes a concern I contacted them with an email, whats going on with my surveys? This is how they responded with a serious threat.Read below as I copied and pasted this here. I am at a standstill thinking on how to reply, any ideas? I am outraged at this accusation what a bunch of morons

I have spent over 2 hours on this site taking these surveys and of course I "didn't qualify" for any of them. not one! I have taken close to 25 of them. then they tell you to download the app. for what?? there hasn't been one survey that I could even take on there. they all say to use my desktop. this site is a complete joke!

The only reason I give it 2 stars is because it was a good deal for awhile, until I got to 4300 points, 100 points less than I needed to cash out a whopping $40. I was getting 3-8 surveys PER DAY until I got to this point. Either I've been throttled because of this or Carol didn't like it when I complained about all the surveys lately disconnecting me and not issuing my points. If you get disconnected by their servers, even after 30 mins invested in a survey and don't write down the survey number, she won't credit you. I found out the hard way. The survey numbers disappear from your account once you start them. You get disconnected, they get your data, and then you're screwed. I was upset. I wrote an upset email to her and VOILA! My surveys stopped completely. When I asked her about this she issued a canned reply stating that you have to have an account for a while before surveys start coming in. She basically ignored me. I give up. I've cashed-out and hope I'll actually get the money. I'm not too hopeful. Had this all not come to pass I'd have given them 5 stars. Too bad. Either I've been throttled so I can't cash out the remaining points in my account (a little too ironic to not be this explanation), or 'someone' allowed attitude to interfere with how she does business. Either way, very unethical.

I've been waiting almost eight months to receive S$120 despite countless emails and threats to which there has been zero response.
I'm now taking the matter up with the authorities and with the media.
The service provided by Mysurvey is disgraceful yet they continue to promote themselves as prompt payers.

This USED to be a good site and a great place to earn gift cards! Lately, most of the surveys COMPLETED fail to pay out. A note will pop up that says, your points will be credited in 7-10 days. If you should see this, just know that these points will NEVER arrive. I don't know why the fast decline in what used to be a good site but I now consider it a SCAM!!! Customer service will NOT RESPOND...Don't waste your time..canceling today after 10+ years. Buyer beware...

I just canceled my membership after 15 years. Carol Adams has become terse and threatening people with reporting to authorities if they commit fraud such as giving false answers to surveys. Stay away from mysurvey. Don't risk 10 years in jail.

I have emailed several times to try and get paid for surveys completed. No answer, also posted on their Facebook page, no response at all. Other people are also complaining, emails bouncing back, "not known" Contact us button on website is useless, messages ignored. What is going on???
12:16pm on February 24th, 2014
Used to be a good way to earn some gift cards. Not anymore.
It seems that now you complete a lot a of a survey only to be screened out and not receive anything for your time, while they get plenty of useable answers. It's a complete waste of time.
And their customer service is awful. Good luck trying to get in touch when your points are not allocated.
2:52pm on January 12th, 2014
I think that I will cancel my account with MySurvey today. It's true that the amount of time required does not worth anything they have to offer. Do not waste your time. Move on to other ways of earning a reasonable income online.

Like many others, I accumulated my points for reward redemption. But nothing was received after a month and neither did they respond to my queries, which I sent twice!
They're just using us for free labour! Don't ever get scammed like we did!
Scums like them ought to be shot!

My Survey seemed quite okay, but I am still waiting for a voucher I claimed on 15 October 2013. Two months, and it still has not arrived. It's still "processing" in my account. I emailed the customer service 10 times, but they only replied once. Since then, I have not been receiving any replies.

I have been a member for years and only earned enough points to cash out two or three times a year. After they began the monthly diary survey, which is every three months and worth 1000 points, I began to earn more. The survey has to filled out for an entire month and submitted on the last day of the month.
The first time the survey disappeared before the end of the month, I contacted them and they awarded me the 1000 points.
I completed a survey in October, went to submit it on the 31st as per the instructions and the survey had once again been removed.
I have sent this info to them via their contact form FOUR times and have not had a reply. Tonight I found that my account has been closed! Rip-off!!!
