I joined Valued Opinions a while back and never had any issues taking the surveys. Had enough saved up that I decided to cash in for a couple of gift cards. Every time it kept saying I couldn't cash out because my account wasn't verified. It was verified enough to take the surveys tho, how convenient. Sent email to support staff and received a reply that my account had been closed for 1 of a list of half a dozen possible reasons. Bull! Sent them another email because I wanted a specific reason. Got same reply, could be for one of the following reasons with the same list they sent before. After doing some research I see that this happens to a lot of people. Must be a common practice for them so they don't have to pay out.
