Have you ever been screwed by a ptc? Most of us on here have at one point or another, but how many of us have ever gotten justice? I wrote this story in another post in response to incomebux.webspacemania being down for days now and trust me...it's gone for good. Here's my experience and how I handled it... Incomebux.webspacemania.com was a newer site and had a great look, low cash out at $1, 1 cent clicks, and cheap referral packs. I decided to take a chance and I ordered a 10 pack of referrals via paypal for $8.99. I waited for 3 days and didn't receive them, I emailed them and got nothing back in return. Then within a day or so, I noticed they posted a bright orange banner at the top of the page which said they would be switching domains as of 11:00 pm and not to use this domain any longer. They said they would be switching to incombux.net and didn't notify anyone via email, and this change was to take place within 1 day of posting it. Hummm do you think they were trying to lose some people and take their money....I do. Then, The new domain was all messed up. When you clicked on things it said apache error, or 404 not found, and had overlapping sentences throughout the site. I've been down this road before so I continued to send emails to find out what was up and got nothing in return. After a few days of still nothing, I filed a complaint via the customer resolution center and after 2 emails, still nothing, so I withdrew my complaint with them and filed a formal complaint via paypal. Within 2 days, I got my money returned to me and I was very happy to have won my suit. I still had them bookmarked and one day I clicked on them to see what was up, (incomebux.net) and still nothing, they hadn't changed the messed up ness and I was happy I got out when I did. I went on to wordlinx and to my surprise, they were running an ad under their original site name..incomebux.webspacemania.com. I logged in and found that my account had 10 referrals...So I decided to wait until I got to $5 and cash out. I did that and just like I thought, their gone and turned out to be another scam. Someone needs to regulate these sites and I'm in the process of writing a letter to the FBI about this. When it gets further along, I'll be posting a message on mylot that will have a email address that I would like to have all PTC complaints sent to so that it can be sent along with my letter. Hopefully no one got screwed too badly from them, but if you did, file a suit and you just may have some luck and win. OUT2WIN, means OUT2WIN ;)

That is really great. Even i joined incomebux some days back and earned around two dollars. To my horror when i went to cash out they gave me an error that this facility was out of service, pls mail back two days later. After two days again the same thing. And when i clciked on the site yesterday, they had vanished. Bloody scammers.I don't know what to do. They ran away with my money.

Now there running under incomebux.net....and who did they notify....NO ONE!!!! Just the other day, incomebux.net was still down and all messed up. What a frickin joke, they didn't even notify anyone about the change. The site is run by idiots. I went through allot trying to get my cash back, so do not, I repeat do not invest in this site. They are very shady and will go down the crapper soon.

The respectable thing to do is to use the customer resolution center before you file a complaint. You should do this for 2 reasons. 1) Paypal respects people who are willing to resolve things without involving paypal so you will get their vote right there 2) Your claim will be proven right if/when they do not respond to your complaint or respond with a blow off answer or just say,"No." It will bring out their true colors. Be polite, and to the point. Do Not Be Rude, they will either not respond, or when paypal does get involved, will think your a hot-head who isn't the least bit professional. If you have any other questions, let me know.

I have started using incomebux.net recently. I have not reached the payout limit. So do you think its a scam and should I stop using it? The payout limit is 1 dollar.

This is what I'm talking about, now they are back up under incomebux.net!!!! What a joke, they didn't even notify anyone, about switching to incomebux.net!! This site is run by idiots and do not trust them. I went through a mess trying to get my money back and did, so do not.....I repeat do not buy anything via them, you will lose out when they go down and they will because of their poor business practices.

Good for you! It's great to hear that someone's taking action against these scammers. I've recently been scammed by Bux.to taking my money for referrals and then not giving them to me. I'm really fed up with it. I don't seem to be getting anywhere.
