How to know if a ptc is scam?
June 10, 2009 2:17am CST
Hey guys, i just want to give some good ways of identifying which ptc site is a scam. Im planning to attach this discussion for my next blog entry so give your best shot in answering! Here's mine: 1. Use domain look up services in the net. Confirm the registration of that ptc site and who owns it. Example: nomincashout and blastbux admin are the same. How come? If you use domain look up, the ip that registered nomincashout and blastbux are the same! 2. Observe the script of that site, gen2 and gen3 scripts are usually used by scammers. Aurora script is more secured and expensive that those scripts. But not all gen2 and gen3 ptc sites are scam, it depends on the modification made by the owner. 3. Read faq! If the faq is the same as other sites or copied, as in the whole faq is copied. Probably that ptc is scam 4. Find the logic behind the total members and number of payouts. If the total members dont match with the number of payouts, contact the admin and let him explain. 5. Advertising rates must give justice to the rate per click. If the advertising price is too low and per click is 1 cent, the site is not sustainable. 6. Ptc site must have a forum or a support contact info. Smithbux is a ptc site that started to be legit and turned to be scam. They dont have forum and contact page. 7. Site that goes on and off and often to have maintainance can be suspected as scam 8. A normal click per rate range from $0.02 below. Anything that much higher than the normal is suspicious. There are sites that come up as legit in the beginning and after a month becomes scam, if you want to get some profits with them, acquire a lot of referrals in a short period of time! Goodluck!

As many people know, it is important to see payment proofs. I will only look at payment proofs that are in the form of scanned checks or screenshots of transfers to electronic payment processors. I will not believe a website payment proof section because it is too easy to create an HTML table, put fake names, payout amounts and payout dates into it and then post it on their page.

Dear it is real hard to tell either it is scam or not .... till you get paid first time. I have joined lots of programmes and after reaching to minimum payout and waiting for months i have not received the money. Once you know that it is good programme and it pays you one should work hard and make more refers and devote more time to earn more and more money.

You also just check www.scam.com or www.gptboycott.com But if you are into joining the newest and latest programs that may not have been around long enough to make it onto one of those two sites, knowing what to look for is helpful. Thanks for sharing.
