Hello Mylotters, I know it's been three days when i made this topic about risking mistakes. so, amjust gonna put the link here to see the history of it. it was a bit upsetting at first. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2150876.aspx and then when Mylot had this glitch during the weekends, I've been thinking over of what the other mylotter said long ago about fighting back against scam sites, with the help of Paypal. Well, you know what i did, i decided to sent a claim complain through paypal regarding those sites that i've invested in. at first in paid2youtube, they stated their reason that my video views ran out on oct. 11, i don't understand why can they just tell me then before i complained. Then, i complained about what Silver.paidtoviewtube.com did to me and other users. purchasing 5$ in the pre-launch was a mistake. when they were in the official run,they have re-set everything and lost some of my earnings and credits to the banner and feature link..so, i complained too. Same goes with the Friendster Ad..case still pending.. Result* Paidtoviewtube refunded my 5$ investment but in an expense, they deleted my account. screw them! anyways, when they officially launch the site , they had only two links there. resetting was BAD idea.. paid2youtube and friendster are still pending.hoping for good results.. This is Probably the Reason why some site don't like Paypal at all because when some one complained to paypal, they(site) will be in deep trouble.. as for me, i got of half of what i lost. thanks to Paypal staff. Welcome back every one..remember...FIGHT BACK..against Scam.

This is surely an eye opener for all of those who have been scammed and never complained. I am sure that many out there have had their share of scams yet never complained. Well, I have not invested in any site to earn money. But if ever I do, at least I know what to do should I be scammed. Good luck on your plight and I congratulate you for fighting and winning.

Hello JPSO, Yes, it is but i wonder why a lot of people didn't noticed about it since they're using Paypal. there is resolution page in that site where you can escalate your issues with another site. there's no doubt they can do it because they have their own customer service. at least you know what to do now, good luck.

I have learned that paypal really looks out for the people who have accounts. I had this book store charge me not once but five times for one book and paypal went and got my money back, so I completely understand, and you know what it is better than my bank at making sure I get my money so I love that company

Hello PastorKayte, NO way! five times! that's crazy, why on earth would they charged you five times. some one's asking for a secret fee.lolz. well, it is better than my bank as well. too bad they don't consider incresing interest rates in our paypal account, other wise, that would have been really cool. have a great day.

Hello Babyyish, Yeah, you got that right. and the verification isn't that hard either comparing to Alert Pay. there i had to upload my ID and Billing. well, i don't have a billing statement and that what makes it sucked.

Gee that good to know LetranKnight! I didn’t know that you can lodge complaints through PayPal. I will keep that in mind because there are so many scams out there just waiting to take your money. It’s bad enough getting scammed for time you’ve put in but when you invested cash that really hurts! I am pleased to hear that you got some of your money back, hope you get the rest returned to you. Good luck with it!

Hello Paula, I agree with that there are somany scams out there that you realized it when it is too late or when you spent too much on the investing to their site. I've been victim of so many scam sites out there that i couldn't count anymore how many times that i got frustrated and felt down. well, at least this is some relief. nope the rest i think wont return to me since they're so hard headed.

Well done! You did the right thing, we should not keep silent and tolerance with the scam site, we should fight for our right and fight back what we had invested and earned. Furthermore,thank you for your information, I have more confidence with pay pal now.

Hello moneymakingtoday, well, i believe this is one discussion that i believe can be helpful to a lot of users out there who had been scammed so many times already. i can't recall but for what i remember this is the second time that a discussion like this had been made. it's just that i put in my own interest because it was my personal experienced. i guess you know what to do when you feel scammed...

hello udnisak, No wonder why some sites doesn't accept paypal and most of them are on alert pay. at least this had given me the idea on who's sites that i need to join and prefer to join sites with paypal as their processor. yeah, no internet police but i guess paypal will do.

Good for you and I wish folks who start these sites stop using folks and pay them; Stop it; I thought about starting something up so everyone could get paid and to be honest with you, it scares me big time because for one, I hate to do this with good intentions, and then something comes up and you can't take care of business. You did right Letran and I'm glad for you.
