    I don't know about making a lot, but I do answer surveys for one place that gives 5 to 20 points, sometimes up to 100 or so for extended surveys, or even more for at-home surveys, such as keeping up with a product you agree to try (that they send you). It takes quite a few months, but eventually I have enough points for them to send me 20 bucks. Another one is just clicking on opportunities that are sent to your email. It only takes a few seconds, and you get 5 or 10 points, more if you respond to the offer. After a while, I can trade in points for gift cards to stores, etc.... Those are worth it to me, because they don't take too long. Others I've tried are too tedious or take too long.

    You can, but like Victoria Lynn pretty much summarized for you, it's a long process. Just like HubPages, there's no get-rich-quick-scheme when it comes to making money with online surveys.

    I have not yet found one and have looked. I suggest you google online survey name followed by scam to find internet reports if this organization is a scam.

    I have been doing online surveys but I don't really earn from it, maybe because I am not doing it fulltime. Jessica is right when she says there is no get-rich-quick scheme online, even if you have to pay for it which I don't prescribe to. Still hard work and to make it easier it should be something you in HP, we do something we love and some earn from it.

    There are only 2 sites that I can recommend, and though you won't get rich, if you spend about an hour a day total on these two sites, you should have no problem reaching the $10 or $20 cash-out amount a couple times a month. Try, which has surveys and topic polls/opinions that earn you cash($20 cash out minimum) and (1000 points to redeem for cash or gift card).They are the only sites that i've ever tried that are legit, and I use them faithfully, and can count on a small check in the mail once or twice a month from each one. I also wrote a hub about the 'top' survey sites, but I still stick with just these two. Hope this helps!
