Tellwut just suspended my account

Postby tellwutisascam » Wed Apr 03, 2013 10:10 pm

They did it for no reason. I signed up with them a little over two weeks ago. I had almost 3,600 points and only needed about 400 more to cash out for the first time and get a $10 Amazon gift card. I did nothing wrong. Tellwut is a scam and I won't be surprised if they go out of business soon. Since they are based in Canada, I can't file any complaint against them here in the United States with the BBB or FTC. Does Canada have any agencies or organizations that I can file a formal complaint with?

That happens now and then for unknown reasons. Just email them and ask why it was suspended. They may not give a definite answer but they will re-instate the account if it is an accident. It's happened to quite a few of us...

Be sure to give them the email address you signed up with. http://www.tellwut.com/give_feedback

they've gone down the drain the last month... i'm at cashout time again but i only have 1700 points so far.. at this rate it'll take 5 to 6 weeks to cash out for $10.. and that's with waiting for their pain in the arse slow site to load all the time.

In my experience, that's a recent (but frequent) occurrence. Out of paranoia, I sometimes wonder whether Tellwut's slow loading is intentional, to make surveytakers spend more time there.

Couldn't it just be slow because more people are logging on to do surveys?

In another thread, I just commented about

    1. Tellwut's two recent Facebook notes (entries, whatever) about the Tellwut site's slow loading speed
    2. my Tellwut blog comment asking them to post notes like that on the Tellwut site, not just in their social media accounts.

I just did two surveys this morning and I got the little blurb saying I had made points, no mention of how many, and when I looked up at my total, it was the same as when I signed in. So I guess I missed out on 25 points. Time to start getting some surveys together.

It is fixed now and the ones you didn't get points for will come back up..................... :)
