Dormcheck Bites the PayDust

Dorm Check will no longer be a paying forum - Dorm Check is down for updates

Please check your email. Dorm Check will no longer be a paying forum, due to more than a few members cheating the system. An email was sent to all members explaining the situation in full.

Expect DC to be back up within a week.

Dormcheck no longer pays out for people to post. They say people are cheating.

I'm out $5 myself. I lost $10 on a site called HyIpHeat too. I hope MyLot doesn't bite it, I'd really be upset cuz I work hard.

I am out $16.00 on that lousy dorm check! I was a member and cashed out 5 weeks ago but I never heard a thing nor even got a dime from them! I've been with Mylot for a long time now and they DO pay! They sent me $40.00 in my PayPal acc. so far and very soon, I will get another $10.00 from mylot, so I know they pay and will probably be around for a long time!

I'm giving you links to my discussions posted way way back when I had a problem with the site. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/854134.aspx http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/878197.aspx you can see the responses, who defended the site and who were victims. there are many other discussions about dc on here if you read some of them, you'll know people already got bad experiences some months ago.

First it happened to Duno, now dormcheck. Fiest of all, you people who try to cheat the system, I hope you see what you're doing. And Mylot, I hope you got a good system in place to prevent this fromhappening to you.

MyLot's harder to cheat because the users police the system by negative rating the posters. Also, you can't cut & paste until you have 500 posts.

From what I understand, the negative rating is suppose to be for inapproriate posts, nothing more nothing less. Also, who said people cheated? The owner? Please. I think "cheating" is something they make up. After all, they all claim cheating from what I have read. Seriously, has a site every admitted any other reason for failing? I don't believe all these sites are going down because people are cheating. I think some of them are going down because the owners are getting greedy....instead of paying the members they are paying themselves....bad business management, bad business model, etc. is the reason they are failing. It is extremely low to blame the people for a site failing. And the reason they blame the members, is they don't want the focus or the blame where it should be, on them (the owners). Don't turn on one another. Place the blame where it should be, with the owner of these sites. Good-luck all.

Dormcheck was run on a similar premise but it was a copycat of MyLot. It was of much lower quality. It was akin to a sloppy copy of a piece of jewelery.

I joined it but did not post. I do not go to college, So guess I do not qualify. Anyway myLot is more interesting.

Thanks for the warning and I'm glad I'm not a member. It is very nice of you to keep people posted on things like this. I work very hard to try and keep my blog updated with the best paying programs that I've found on the Net! http://www.findcash.blogspot.com

Your very welcome. The Net is a big place and very difficult to police, so it's users have to become it's impromptu police force!

Here you get feedback plus $$ for your hard work. The feedback is really tangable here. Your right about Dormcheck, it stank out loud.

Any site can be victim to mismanagement. However, by looks of things and apparent quality control, this site doesn't appear mismanaged.

The site is well managed, and those kinds tend to hang around for a while. Still, keep the pay out low as possible so you don't get burnt...sorry, I've been burnt more than once by these crooks.

Since the day it ended its activity with e-gold ,its going downwords, i guess many people have many great expectations with it , but in the end none fulfilled , has any one ever got paid by this one ? I have made around $6.00 with 7 referrals in dormcheck and didnt took long aswell just my 7th day with them and they stopped payments to international members , perhaps it was their intention to do scamming from the start, just ends up now when so many members upgraded with them.

I paid for a gold membership and didn't even get to use it a month. Go figure. I am so tired of being ripped off by these sites. Maybe that is where the money is. Set up a site and become a crook. Only problem is my conscience wouldn't let me do that to people.

I noted this site's different because it's user policed. Positive/negative/abusive ratings by users really effect your rating and your pay.
