How do I delete my account on Crewbux, Thinkbux, and VIPbux?

I've kind of given up hope on these sites. Why? I'm not going to pay money to get a premium account to use Paypal. You shouldn't have to pay money to use a payment processor, nor should you be forced to use Alertpay and only Alertpay if you don't want to upgrade your membership. Not only that but the Owner of the PTC site, at least Crewbux(I think they're all owned by the same person though.. probably.) speaks broken English. I asked the following question to the Crewbux owner: "It's a pretty straightforward question. I was just curious, why do you have to be a premium member to use Paypal?" and then.. roughly 24 hours later I received this response: "Because Standart members are not so honest and open many claims in paypal thats why!" In his defense though, his first language probably isn't English. However. With all the money he/she is making you think they would hire a tech/Q&A department that can speak proper English. This discussion is basically to ask you.. what do you think of these three sites? How do you feel about the whole paying through Alertpay to get a premium account just so you can use Paypal? Also, I am very curious. How exactly do I delete my accounts? I want to get rid of all three & never return to the sites again. I've found better and more reliable one's that pay faster anyways!

Well, to help you with this: I wondered at first also. Then I did some checking around. It seems that PayPal only allows new accounts to use them as a payment processor if they have enough credentials. The older sites have "grandfathered" themselves in. So, they can use PayPal. think about it. I am an affiliate with PayPal. So when somebody pays me that hasn't signed up, I get paid money plus money. That applies to Alertpay for others. So, if you look at it that way; you get the idea. People can be very rude though. I feel for you there. It stinks to get a rude response from a business.

Well I just reached my payout at crewbux today and I wanted to get paid by paypal then I came to know that its for upgraded members.I was unhappy for a second but then its ok as long as I get paid from there. But yes you are right that why should we upgrade to get paid but then you can't help it.I think you should continue with it because they are good sites and you can request your payout by alertpay, what difference does it make to you as long as you are getting paid.

I'm still new to AlertPay, so I can't say too much about it. I have had no trouble with Paypal, but I have come across other people who did and said they would never use it again. There is risk everywhere when dealing on the internet. djbtol

I've joined crewbux and thinkbux. I don't know that they require us to be a premium member to be paid via paypal. Maybe I was not paying attention when registering their sites, or did they ever mention it in their site about this? As for me, I think it's very important to think that they are not 'hiding' something from us members. Well, maybe for you it's best to get rid of them. Some sites have an option to delete accounts, but I'm not sure if any of these sites have this option. thanks..

Yeepp. It's definitely best for me to get rid of them. I can't do anything else with them and their business practices are just so mysterious to me. I think i'll just send in a support ticket for them to delete my account unless they plan on allowing Paypal again in the near future(I sent in a support ticket asking if they were going to.)
