    Been trying to sign up for the site, but the block where you need to enter your state doesn’t work. So, I looked them up to contact them — and found this site which, from the comments I’ve read, have led me to believe I’m better off without Survey Downline. It it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

    I’m beginning to wonder if any online survey site isn’t a scam. Especially those which have you answer questions to get approved, then you answer more questions which seem survey like and at the end, you don’t qualify — but they got their survey answered anyhow for free.

    Any information on REAL PAYING surveys would be nice.

    Stay away from this page, must be denounced for fraud and spams. By charging my second payment I showed up my mail invalidated.
    I will do the same to denuncialos here and on other sites, so that this type of product do not continue scamming and wasting my time.

    I just tried to find them to login and I couldn’t. I googled them and decided to look at the reviews. I’m glad I did i would have been very angry. Looks to me that all they want is some information with a promise to pay and then don’t pay. One day somebody will figure out a way to stop them. until then

    I have been actively taking surveys on this site for about two months. In order to receive a cash payout (via Paypal), the site claims you need to have a minimum of $20 in order to get your money. Well, as of today my account was at 19.75, and I had about 4 pending payments totaling about 6 bucks, so I figured I would hit the threshold in about a week. So I log into my account today, and the site is now telling me that my username does not exist!! What the hell? Are these people really gonna wait until it’s time to pay and then deactivate your account? I am pissed because now, all the time that I spent just to get to that level has been wasted. I am going to check into reporting these people to the BBB…just horrible.

    No it’s not any use to report them to BBB, you have to take contact with ESOMAR, they solved problems for me before

    I did two surveys and each time, it is not telling me the money received and I were offered a survey of more, for a total of four survey that promised all about $ 1 but my account was at $ 0 instead of about 4$, there was no message to show me the money received. I finally deleted my account.

    Survey downline is a fraudulent site, and they stole my $16. I logged into the site after a brief gap and found that $10 had disappeared, and my funds were only $6. I tried to complete a survey and filled some profile questions.The screen went blank and I refreshed it, and then there were no surveys. A couple of hours later, I wanted to log in to see if there were any surveys and I could not log in, and there is a message that says
    “User does not exist with an account name —-“!!!!!!!!!!
    This site is the king of all frauds. I have had some bad experiences with some survey sites, and this was the worst!
    Stay away from this scam.

    Forget the part where they never espond to any of my inquiries. I concur that this is fraud. I get a survey invite that says “Fun Entertainment Survey – reward $1.00”, so I complete it and it shows up as a reward of 50 cents. Not a single survey reward amount I have been promised is the actuall amount that shows up on my results.I am stuck just below the $ 20 requirement to cash out, and I suspect they will find a way to amke sure I never get there. Class action lawsuit is a phrase that comes to mind….

    I joined this survey company on March 7, 2014. So far i haven’t received any survey invites directly from them. I did however go to their site and discovered about 6-8 survey’s. In which i did several. I was screened out of every one that i attempted. I did do their profile survey’s. There was about 6 of those.
    So hopefully i will get some invites, without having to go to their site everyday. I can’t comment on cashing out yet. So all and all i am not to please but i am waiting it out to see if something good comes out of this site.

    Thank you all for taking the time to leave your comments. I have used various survey sites for years and was very interested to hear the ‘inside’ story about Survey Downline. This one is not for me.

    Very misleading it looks like my “unqualified” data won’t allow me to get paid, but it looks like that data went somewhere, I call fraud! These guys don’t pay out, they just take ur info and collect…don’t waste ur time with the app it blows!!

    This is a fraudulent company, you subscribe to the website and you feel motivated to complete surveys. You could take about 1 hour trying to qualify to receive nothing. They don’t pay as they promise. In addition to this, if you complete 6 surveys(for example), they won’t credit you with the right amount, trying to avoid paying their members. The main problem is, that this company tries to find an excuse to cancel your account to keep your money, but they will wait until you cash out, so you will be working for free spending hours and hours trying to qualify to surveys and working for them like a slave without receiving your payment. They wait until you cash out, and they cancel your account a few days before the day that you should receive your payment. This company should go out of business for scamming their members and the CEO should face legal actions for making money using fraud.

    I have been a member of SurveyDownline for a couple of years. I have recruited about 300 members, and they in turn have recruited about 35 members. I cash out for $20 about once a month. Hey, I’ll never get rich from this, but I am pleased that I have people making money for me, considering I rarely make more than a couple of dollars a month myself doing their surveys. The majority of my revenue comes from my referrals. They seem to only credit my account once or twice a month. That said, I can check my account one day and have $1.63, and then check again the next day and have over $20, which is their payout amount unless you want Facebook credits, then you can cash out at $15. All said, I am quite pleased with SurveyDownline, and I hope they do not fall by the wayside or change their payout structure like many before them.

    I havent had to “prove” I completed surveys, but they sure drag their feet crediting you! On 5/23/12 I got $20 payment via Paypal for surveys they had credited me for up to 4/30/12 when I requested payout. I still have one survey pending from February that I havent gotten credit for as of this date, 7/3/12. They do show surveys u completed on your rewards page, so I dont see how they can argue that they dont owe u for them, when they have completed surveys listed. They claim to credit ur surveys w/i 2 weeks, but I rarely have had this happen, its more like a month, on average. Yes, I have had a few credited fairly quickly, but most surveys I complete w this site I have to wait and wait before I see credit for them. I wouldn’t say not to try this site, but I caution u not to expect much and for this company to react very slowly. If u want sites that give u fast credits and payouts, Survey Spot and My Surveys are great! They are almost instantaneous!

    The last time I accessed this account it showed about $12.50 in funds, although I have definitely lost some money by not cashing up before a year had expired. They keep sending me surveys that I cannot (will not) access because my anti virus system throws up the big, red, Whoa! don’t go there screen every time. I’ve tried contacting their customer support, and was told to turn off my anti virus system in order to enter their site. Um, NO!! I don’t have this problem with ANY other legitimate site, and I don’t think I could even turn off my anti virus system if I wanted to, since it is administered by my internet service company.

    Just came across Justin’s review. I have never experienced this screenshot or code requirement he mentions. The surveys are usually credited to my account within minutes. You have to withdraw monies within 1 year but that isn’t a problem. Great site with standard surveys to complete.

    This company is a fraud. If you qualify and complete a survey, they still won’t credit you unless you also send them a screen shot of the completed survey or some mysterious “code” at the end of the survey. Even after completion, they will take MONTHS to get credit. With a $20 payout, it took me over a year and 20 some surveys to earn $6.00 (at $1.25 per survey, this math doesn’t add up) I finally confronted them asked them to credit me for these surveys and I continue to be given the run around. Finally, AFTER I filed a complaint with the BBB, they credited my account with $20 and allowed me to cash out and pay them promptly. I am a member of over 20 survey companies, both on and off line, and I have never had this experience. Avoid them at ALL costs.
