Upbux had Kept 'who is' info PRIVATE. It makes members to doubt it not PayPal

Friends, A few days I had checked the 'who is' info of Upbux and it was set to be PRIVATE. Now, they are having problems and blaming PayPal. But one needs to get the facts right before coming to any conclusion. But the way the information was kept private and the problems it had got into. Not only that, they are even blaming PayPal and they show hatred towards PayPal. All this makes to suspect them. Whether PayPal is mafia (as Upbux claims) or not is a different thing as many other sites are using it and they didn't have this kind of problem. Overall, Upbux seems to be not so UP with their thoughts and intentions. They could have managed it with other payment processors if they wanted. So this also makes members to suspect Upbux. Overall, another PTC site goes down!

This is hard to say as I have mixed feelings towards upbux. In a short amount of time, it was able to rise and now, well poof gone. Whether it be an exit strategy as someone else mentioned or paypal is shutting them down for legitimate reasons, we can't really see the whole story as it's kind of blurry. We're only seeing upbux side and as much we spam or call paypal to turn back on upbux account, the truth is evident, and the answer is no.

The reasons that Upbux provides are not logical for closing a site. And why they are not having a talk with members? No member is able to reach them right now. Members were asking them to be up to date in the forum but they were not active in the forum for a while.

Hi, I have just started following the Upbux vs Paypal situation and read quite a few stuffs and many rumors going on. Not a member of Upbux (actually I had wanted to join UpBux only to see their notice about Paypal) but have been using Paypal for quite sometimes. I have read in BuxWiki but I am not sure if their information is the latest posted or not where it stated that UpBux is looking at other payment processors. Things seems to have been getting more and more deeper with only UpBux statement whereas nothing much from Paypal except the information of a former Paypal employee. Hopefully, it is just a misunderstanding between UpBux and Paypal and things will go for the better.

Hi everyone, Four days ago, on Feb 13, Upbux paid me immediatly through paypal. I asked for my money (a very small quantity as I´m a standard member) and paypal had no problem in paying on the dot. Then, with no notice, Upbux blames Paypal that the site is going down and calling it a mafia. It doesn´r sound right. Just today, I sent some money through paypal. I have been recievig payments there from many sites (including mylot). It´s a pity: we lost hard work, referrals and some of us investments. But I tend to think that the mafia belongs to Upbux. Palmbux has had problems with paypal lately. The site has kept every member up to date on what has happened and it seems that now the problems are solved. I think that is the way to work in a business. I have never heard that spitting on your comercial partner (as Upbux did with Paypal) did any good. Except of course, if it´s a way of taking our money and run with it.
