Populus surveys.I completed 1 survey recently but was told I did not fully comply with their regulations relating to answering honestly. They then let me complete 2 more surveys fully before telling me again I have not complied.Now I am not eligible for all surveys received.They have £25 of my money.It just sounds like a con to me.

I only once got told i didnt comply with a survey from populus because instead of entering my date of birth i put in the example why i did it i dont know they used to put 11-june-1978 or 11/6/1978 as example so i used to check the format but instead i copied it hence right month wrong year ,Otherwise never in four years so i would message them to ask what you have done wrong

This happened to me as well John. I will persevere for another week but if it happens after that I will contact them to complain.

I too was told that they had different birth dates for me, so I wrote back and everything now seems ok. I must agree with poppy you should ask them they are such good payers you don't want to loose them John F

All this hassle contact us stuff is such a hassle.All I want to do is answer the surveys as truthfully as possible thereby keeping my side of the agreement , and then get credited/paid which is their side of the agreement,maybe I'll push this on Monday, at least Suzy seems back on line again.

I think Populus surveys mainly are very interesting, not like some companies I could mention, Populus are certainly NOT a waste of time, they can make you really think, also they pay very well!!

When I saw the title, I thought Vinny would be the author! then I realised this was an old post.

Wendy, it was when others were allowed to start posts whilst Vinny was otherwise entertained !

John, nobody is stopping anyone from posting topics. If I choose to post it is entirely up to others to respond, or not. Why is it that I sense a feeling of vitriol towards me for, merely, trying to inject a little bit of life and humour? I'd also add that should the site administrator(s) deem my content offensive and ban me again then I'll happily abide by that decision. It will be to your loss though!
