I've been amember here at Mylot for quite some time and in the early stages I spent a lot of time promoting my link to try and get referrals. I managed to get 2, neither of whom ever bothered to post a single thing. I gave up, but much tomy surprise I received a new referral last week who is active and making me some nice money. I have no idea where he/she came from. Have any of you ever received a mystery referral?

That's pretty cool! I think it's just payback for some good deed that you've done. Who knows, right? I guess I would say that I'm my own best referral. I don't remember who referred me here, but whoever it is, is really getting rich off my efforts. I'm slave to MyLot. But I have a lot of words in my brain. Can't help it. I used to write all this stuff out long hand before I found MyLot and the computer. Now it's so much easier! If you need any ideas on ways to spend your free money, don't be afraid to ask!

I promoted my referral link for Mylot also and have got 23 referrals here so far. Only a couple of them are active now though. Most of my referrals joined and left the same day. they never posted anything either. I have never received a mystery referral for Mylot though, not that I know of anyway. I promote my referral link.

How much money do you make from the referrals that are active? I only have one referral and it's someone I know, but I hope to get more in the future. This really is too good of an opportunity for someone to pass up.

Not yet, but there is always hope :) That is very cool that someone signed up and you don't know who it is. Even cooler that they are posting and helping your wallet!

I haven't yet but I wish I would! I just wish one of my five referrals would make one post! It would be nice if we had a way to contact our referrals if only just one time, to welcome them and remind them that they joined because I think they must have signed up then forgotten about it. I know that's what I did for awhile but once I found my way back here I never left. Anyway, congrats on your mystery referral and may there be many more. Annie

No, I have not. It would be nice though. I have actually not tried to promote myLot for a while now. I have thought about it, but just never do it. Maybe I should try and see if I can get another Active referral or two on here. I do have one on here who has become Active again which is always nice. At one time I had about 4-6 fairly active. Keep up the good work, and wishing you the best.

I had another business that I promoted and would run into all those people who wanted something free and completely online to work at home, so I'd send them my referral link. I have 45 referrals and every so often there would be one that would at first post a great deal and make me some money but then they would run out of steam... I never made very much with referrals. Seems I was the only one really hooked on mylot.

Hello Inked! Like you, I courted a few people for quite a while and got them to join. Each posted briefly then vashished. I can't imagine how cool it would be to gain a referral without even trying. I have ceased trying to get referrals, as it just seems futile. Obtaining a non-sought referral couldn't have happened to a nicer guy....enjoy!

I'm very new to the site so I haven't had a referrel yet, but I think that I might follow in your footsteps with putting my link in various places.

I have a few referrals but none of them are active posters. Haven't gotten a mystery referral but could sure use one now as I have recently become unemployed.

Conguratunations on you.Get such a active referral is a wonderful thing.Maybe just canme accrose some one likeme .The moment I put my foot here,I startet to keep active all the time .I have ever think about getting some referrals ,but my friends around don'e have the access to my lot beacuse the school limits them to surf abroad .If olye one of my friends can be my referral,I dare to say I just need to stay in bed to earn money , ecause each of them are active in the local forum.

I have three referrals, but they don't do much earnings. I've only been on here for about a week, but I would be very happy for a mystery referral. I hope you have thanked this person for the money that you have made from him/her?? You say that you have promoted your referral link, so I guess it came to good use. I don't even know how to promote my link, and most of my so called friends are really lazy. LOL

Wow! That is great. I haven't tried very hard to get referrals but having some sounds like fun and helpful. I might want to asks my friends but not a lot of my friends knows and understand what paypal is so it's hard. I've asked my brothers but they don't have internet at home.

I wish I have mystery referral. I have 13, non active. I am not promoting my link now, but maybe I should. Something to think about. Maybe I will have good luck....

That is really cool for you. I don't have any referrals because I don't really promote it much. I probably should start promoting it soon so that I can get more referrals and at least get some extra cash. Good luck with your new referral.

Wow, that's pretty awesome! :) I wish I could get a mystery referral! My two are people I know, but neither of them log in, let alone post. :)

No I haven't but I also have not tried to get any referals I figure I make the payout on my own every month so I am happy with that. I wonder how many people would pay for referals if mylot sold people who were not referred by someone.
