Ever see hits for quality assurance calls? I have a suspicion about these.... There is a type of affiliate marketing call PPC or Pay Per Call. Basically, a company (let's say STD testing) wants to generate leads to the phone lines in order to sell tests, etc. So, they offer affiliates $5 per each phone call that lasts over a certain amount of time. My theory is that sometimes big requeters post these hits for their clients, without even realizing what is happening. You, are a pawn, and a generating $ for the requester. The quality assurance thing is a blanket / eg: there is no quality assurance. They are just trying to generate leads via you talking for X amount of minutes in order to get the company to pay them $. AKA - Fraudulent marketing activities and such tasks should be banned by mturk. Thoughts?
