Do you think people say wrong things to get referrals for PTC?

I have seen many times on mylot that people would say that abc.com is a PTC and they got paid from there just in 10 days or so. When I was new to mylot, I used to visit the profile and used to be a member of that PTC. Now, I am a member of 050+ PTC and got paid from only one site. Five of them are pending the request. Most of them shut down last month or so! So, people just want referrals that's why they say that they got paid, actually, they are not. How can one make $1 in 10 days when only 2 ads on offer and you get only .1 cents per click!!!!

Some but not all of those searching for referrals have no scruples at all. Many months ago I found a user (who is no longer here) who even went as far as copying a proof of payment from a site and posting it here as his own Some but not all can be trusted and it is up to you to 'feel' who they are. I am always very wary of users with a low number beside their name who state they have the best site on the net. Do your homework and you will not fall into any traps. Remember always to read the small print on the sites before joining. Good luck!

I am glad that you stopped here and put a response. I got your point and I feel that most of them are telling the false thing. But what do you mean by reading the small print on the site?

Users will tell you the good things about the sites but they 'forget' to tell you what you have to do to get them. For example, they might tell you that site XXX pays at $5 but they don't tell you that you have to be upgraded to be paid at less than $10. You would only find that out by reading the TOS on the site. Last weekend on here several users were talking about a site which paid out at $4 for answering questions. They were wrongly saying that you had to answer 400 questions to get paid. I did some homework and a few sums and it was 4000 questions - a slightly different amount of time involved. I did get users to realise their mistake - but I can't be there in the the money interest s every day Very often you may seem to be wasting time by reading the TOS but in the long run you save yourself a lot of disappointment later

I once had a girl pm me and say that if id be a referal for her she "might" show me her webcam. So yes I think that some do and others can be very misleading about pay etc. There are some good and honest still in the batch though. I hnow of a good survey site for any interested. Happy lotting.

Most of the survey sites are open only for US people and if other country men are allowed then they would ask you pay some money before I can join. so, I am not into Surveys anymore!

This is so true! I didnt notice your india status when I posted...you need to be nave some USA residence for the survey company to mail the check. I live here in Mexico but have a US res to recieve the check. But the same problem occures for me with many other sites I cant use becuase I have no USA bank or my comp. tracing cookie is here in Mex. Oh well! Great post happy lotting your lot and I really do like your avatar pic. Paz. :)
