I’ve registered in some PTC sites that turned out to be scams.
These are sites that either refuse to pay their members or just disappear overnight.
One good giveaway that a PTC site is a scam is a high amount per plick, low price per 1000 ads (if they charge $2 for 100 ads, how much can they give you? at most $0.02 per click, If you count ref clicks and profit, then something is missing, right?); the absence of a forum is the first BIG clue.
I can’t remember the first ones I had to abandon, but here go the most recent ones:
– Euroclickers at the address 126.96.36.199/~euroclic/index.php
This one was asking for it! no proper URL or anything. Too bad, because I got 3 refs on it.
– 5buxs.cn – Just read on a forum that they’re not paying. I’ve requested a $5 cashout in the 25th May and still waiting (16th June), when their TOS states that payment is processed in 10 business days.
– Eurovisits – It’s in euros! cashout at €12.95… €0.015 per click… lots of ads per day…. but they don’t pay. All earnings must go into advertising. I think that’s how I got my 3 refs for 5buxs! 😉
– DonkeyMails, No-minimum Do not reply to the email that say that you have won $400. It is a phishing email trying to get your info and money. Unfortunately, I fell for this one! 😦 a waste of $8 plus $30 that I had to “upload” to an e-gold account. I got it back on an on-line casino, but that was luck.
