Satisfaction Survey Scam Alert

It sounds like a great deal: getting paid for your opinion. However, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper says you can file this one under "too good to be true."

The Attorney General's office says it's getting complaints about email pushing people to take a membership satisfaction survey for Wal-Mart and other stores. The email says you can make $250 on the deal. All you have to do is fill out the survey and fill in your bank account information, so the company can deposit $250 dollars into your account. In reality, officials say they'll use that bank information to take money out of your account.

The state says don't be fooled by the emails because they use logos, copyright symbols and real-looking web addresses.
