Terminated by iPoll and Opinion Outpost

Recommended Posts

trevorpee

I tried to log in to iPoll today, only to receive a message that my membership has been terminated due to some unspecified violation. I then tried OO and the same happened.

 

Has anyone else encountered this?  To be honest, I wouldn't be devastated to lose OO - their surveys have become ridiculous and it takes an age to reach even the minimum 50 point threshold, but we all like to be the one to initiate a break-up, don't we?!

So sorry to hear this.  I left the both of them some time ago.  I think they are looking for reasons to get rid of people, I am hearing more people talk about this, and some of them aren't even on this forum.  So it seems to be  all over.

Thanks for replying, rosiesmom. I do tend to groan if I receive an invitation from OO as I know I'm in for a hard slog to earn practically nothing. I've written to both the sites and will update with any news. It might be useful for others to have a heads up that they are on the warpath.

Not surprised that seems to be the norm for OO and then you have to beg to be reinstated

My Opinion Outpost account was frozen months ago and never got a response to the many emails I sent them. My accounts are now frozen for all of the SSI panels I belonged to and I am also blocked from taking SSI surveys on other panels I belong to. My advice to people is stay away from all of the SSI panels. Because if you belong to these panels for any length of time and are very active on them there is a good chance at some point your account is going to be frozen. And as far as getting reinstated it is possible but don't bet on it. I think years ago my account was frozen but they agreed to reinstate it. This past time I was not nearly as fortunate. And going to the BBB isn't going to do any good because there is either very little or no money in my account. And the BBB can't force them to reinstate you. One of the other SSI panels years ago it may have been Survey Spot froze my account and I went to the BBB. Survey Spot wouldn't reinstate my account but they agreed to pay me the money in it which I believe was something like 9.00.

Were you close to cashing in?  I notice this is when they do that to people.

They say there was a system update during which my SSI accounts were 'frozen unintentionally' but they should be re-instated. I'll wait and see and report back.

I got frozen out of Opinion Outpost twice and got back in both times.  I then switched browsers and started using Google Chrome for surveys and haven't had any problems since.

Opinion Outpost no. Survey Spot I can't remember what the threshold was for cashing out since it was a long time ago but there was like 9.00 in my account and I had to report them to the BBB to get my money. We weren't talking big bucks here but 9.00 is 9.00 that I legitimately earned.

You were lucky they reinstated you but I can't see why the browser you use should make any difference.
