Bux.to stole my referrals!!

January 13, 2008 7:51am CST
Just a word of warning for everyone. Stay away from Bux.to! Five of my friends used my bux.to referral link to sign up and guess what? Only one of them showed up as my referral. The other four are not counted as my referral. I made sure there was no typo in my link. It was completely correct. Apparently, because bux.to didn't feel like giving me my referral commission, they just never counted my referrals. I refuse to work with a company like this so I removed them from my list of recommended programs from my website. Bux.to is based in the country of Tonga and they have very little or no laws about business practice, so Bux.to can lie and cheat or do whatever they want. I am not wasting another second with them. Have a nice day everyone.

Thank you for the warning, I have also seen this site on the boycotting site!!!! So I have stopped using them, stopped wasting my time and thankfully others will do so too, it really annoys me that these companies thrive and do well out of other people's hard work then refuse to pay, there should be powerful watchdogs to govern ALL sites like this regardless of the country, and it's good to hear first hand from others which sites to advoid, that way these greedy companies lose out big time, because word of mouth and sites like boycott are powerful enough to stop these cowboys in their tracks! I feel sorry for those who have invested a lot of time and indeed money in these sites.

I started out with 20 sites and now down to 10 because of the scam sites. I only stay with companies that pay me immediately now especially companies with low payouts. The ones with $20+ not worth my time anymore.

i do not know what to say about this. everyone is saying here that they are scamming but if you would go to their forum you would not see any complains about bux.to. they got now some problem with updating the earnings because of the server but besides of this all is okay on this site.......:/

Exactly. It is THEIR forum. Their admin or moderators can delete any posts that talk bad about them. I wrote something about them scamming me and it was deleted a few minutes later.

Bux.to is a shady company from the start. Anyway the seem to be paying some people although you have to wait ages to get your money there. Because they paid lots of people they have strong supporters. I will not spend a single dime on that site I just don't trust them. Just use them but don't invest is my advice

I think when someone register the referer appears in the box so one should ask the referal to check before registering.
