i been doing them the past couple days and was getting nervous with them still not approving , so i went and did some research on the requester and found out that they have done some shady stuff by rejecting people's work because they base the answers off the majority of workers and have rejected people with that explanation.

I tried to do this hit, but they claimed that I was using a Virtual Private Server to mask my country location, so they kicked me out. I used to get that error once in awhile when I used private browser sessions in the past, so I stopped using them, but I received this error just now with regular old Chrome browser. No VPN, and I'm in FL, but not according to them. 😆

What!? I have to provide my SSN in order to receive 25 cents for completing your task!?? Yeah, I don't think so.

Direct quote from hit; "You will be paid $0.25 for being in this research study. You will need to provide your social security number (SSN) in order for us to pay you. If your social security number is obtained for payment purposes only, it will not be retained for research purposes. You may also need to provide your address if a check will be mailed to you."

it's probably boilerplate stuff that hasn't been updated for mturk but was left for in-person or by-mail studies.

i would start to work this study and then quit if a SSN really is needed.
