    Hello,

    I just signed up to InboxPounds to try to make some money.

    My question, obviously, is is it safe? I keep getting emails through from them, like twice a day, saying if I do this survey for them I get around £5 per servay. Something strikes me as very odd about this, or just too good to be true rather.

    So, anyone know whether I should do it or not?

    Here's a pic:

    I don't know anything about that particular survey giver. But it says "up to" £5 per survey for a reason. It's unlikely you'll be making that much on each survey you do, and you'll probably get the ones that pay the very least first. It takes a lot of time to even make enough money to cash out on half of these sites. And often there is a cap on how many you can do in a day.

    I didn't notice that. But, do you have any idea as to whether it's safe or is it risky or something?

    I don't know about that particular site, but I know of other survey sites that are perfectly safe. They're just a time consuming and rubbish way to make money.
