I have always warned people about this dodge looking, fishy smelling site and told them never to join and to my horror many did. I was chatting at Birejji an hour ago and was shown a payment from paybox that has my name Cholent from Birejji(where I am a mod)giving my promise to the payment. The user never got his payment and now thinks I stole his money. I have never joined this site. I tried to find out who owns the site and couldn't get any real information as everything is hidden and covered up. So what can you guys suggest for me to do to correct my name being used to justify a scam without my permission(not that I would give it). What would you do? I emailed the site but waiting for a reply.

Personally, I would get as many details as you could from where you have seen your endorsement & show proof of what you personally have said about this site & report it to the local authorities to see what they say. Good luck in getting your name cleared.

Good thing I did not join the site or never planned to join it anyway,. This had been said again and again and it may already sound redundant, "anything too good to be true is a scam", so stay away,I'm sorry for people who lose time and money at scam sites but I am really mad at people who use other peoples good name for their evil designs

Paybox is a definite scam. They are doing nothing other than stealing members personal informations and selling their email address to spammers. But they already got thousands of members. I do not understand why people falling in the hands of these scams. They do not think before joining. They do not think from where the Paybox get so much money to pay its users. Paybox is saying that they will launch in 2011 but the fact is that they are never going to launch and pay its users. Paybox says in their terms and conditions that "Paybox Dollars is not equivalent to US Dollars. So their terms and conditions allow them to launch by putting equations like this 1000000 Paybox Dollars = 1 US Dollar So stay away from Paybox or at least don't reveal your real personal informations their.

I agree to you dear. I became member here in paybox. But it is definitely a scam because i never been paid in this site and there is no any payment of proof you will see ever searching the net. I was angry because i only waste my time on this site before. Thanks for posting here. I hope everyone will be aware in this Scam site.

There was some payment proof, as you can see from what I am trying to discuss it has nothing to do with the site but my name being used falsely on the site.
