Don't be fooled by scammers

Unfortunately, there are lots of different scams that take place online like fake coupons, job offers, or checks that people send in order to collect personal information or money. One of the most popular types of online scams is known as phishing, or the act in which scammers try to collect sensitive personal information like passwords, usernames and banking information. Although most phishing takes place in emails, it’s recently made its way to online surveys.

To protect our users from distributing their sensitive information to scammers on the internet, we’ve included a list of guidelines of information you should never provide in a survey.
