Starting soon… The Toluna #Challenge to have fun and earn more points

Starting on Tuesday we will be doing something new, the first Toluna #Challenge.

These #Challenges are all about having fun on Toluna while earning some extra bonus points.

t

◘ Rules: ◘

♣ Starting on Tuesday we will post 2 sponsored polls a week with the hashtag #Challenge in the title.

♣ These sponsored polls can be found here: https://nz.toluna.com/Recent/QuickVotes

♣ All members who answer BOTH questions CORRECTLY will receive an extra 2000 bonus points

♣ Each sponsored poll is already worth 15 points so all participants will automatically receive those points no matter their answer

◘ Here is where it gets tricky: ◘

♣ The sponsored poll will pop up at a random time and disappear quite quickly

♣ Therefore to get the bonus points you will have to be ready and quick

◘ IMPORTANT: ◘

♣ We will be launching two sponsored polls each week.

♣ You have to get the answer to BOTH correctly to win the bonus of 2000 points

♣ We will share the list of winners and the answers to the questions in a topic that same week

Some questions will be about Toluna so you better read up on our FAQs and Site Terms if you want to be able to answer the questions correctly and win the bonus.

Keep an eye out for that hashtag on Tuesday! If you have questions, please ask us here.

Good luck,
The Toluna Team

Beware of scammers claiming to be Toluna

Dear members,

We wanted to bring to your attention that we have received reports from some of you who have been the recipient of unauthorized email invitations, or have been lured onto websites purporting to be from Toluna.

We wanted to warn you about the content of these emails and assure you that they are not coming from Toluna, nor its partners.

How does the scam work?

This scamming method is typically know as phishing and can present a pop-up such as the one below!

FDS.JPG

These emails and sites claiming to be from Toluna, offer large incentives for surveys and coax unsuspecting users into giving out personal information, or trying to get you to redeem a free reward but require that you pay a small shipping fee. Once you have entered your payment information for the shipping fee they will keep taking money from your account without your explicit consent.

How can users avoid these scams?

Your safety online is very important to us, and whilst we take technical and organizational measures to protect your personal information on Toluna.com, we cannot protect you from external sites.

We kindly remind all our members that:

  • Tolunawill never ask you for your personal information outside of the secure Toluna.com.
  • All Toluna surveys are hosted on a secure server: http://ups.surveyrouter.com/
  • Toluna will also never ask for your credit card details or require you to pay money to sign up on our website or to deliver any rewards.
  • Toluna will never contact you by phone for direct marketing or to sell you anything
  • Toluna surveys will only be sent by email to registered users and/or published directly on our official site toluna.com


 

How to recognize Phishing sites and emails

  • If an email invitation to you breaches the above standards, then it most likely is not from Toluna
  • Fraudulent sites and emails are not Toluna branded
  • Fraudulent sites and emails will not include the usual Toluna identification elements (wrong logo, wrong sender email etc.)

If you receive any suspicious e-mails claiming to be from Toluna, please do not open them, reply back, or forward them on to anyone.  Instead you should delete them. It is a scam – these e-mails are fraudulent, may involve them stealing your personal information and/or appropriating your personal information for illegal or illicit purposes and they do not originate from our company.

If you ever have any hesitations about any third party websites that promise Toluna surveys or rewards, please Contact Us.

Please let us know for any questions or comments you may have.

Kind regards,

The Toluna Team
