What is the worst thing that has happened to you by joining a site that turned out to be a scam?

I earned $42 on SlashMySearch (I was trying it out, despite the claims of it being a scam) and it turned out that it wouldn't let me request payment. It was stuck on, "You have to wait 2 months to request payment," even though I've been on there for 4 months! Eventually, SlashMySearch sent out an email that they were closing and that everyone on there needs to request payment. I tried again, and it still wouldn't let me. So, I was like, "Screw it, they are closing." There is a lesson to be learned here: always trust people when they say a site is a scam.
