Hello, i been away here for almost a year. I am kinda bother, because i am registered in readbud.com and whats the term is you can cash out when you reach $50. and now after almost 10 months i reach the $50 and already redeem it last November. But unfortunately i haven't received the payment yet. Is readbud.com really pays or a scam?

I am so sorry for your efforts but if you search the myLot tool bar for the hundreds and hundreds of discussions you will see that many members have nothing but complaints as no one to date has ever been paid. This is a recent one that I have seen, but if you search the tool bar you can see how members have been so disappointed http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2298981.aspx

That is true dear. Thanks for the link. At end of my long association with them... I had just one consolation - I got some good reading that I could make use of... If it was not there then the whole long relation with the site was a waste of time.

same case with me. i redeemed in November and still haven't received the payment yet. i think it is a scam site. i have stopped using the site since then. i even started a discussion about it and everyone who responded says it's a scam. my discussion got deleted though.

I heard a while ago that readbud is a scam website and hence I don't do anything on that site. Sometimes it pays to do your research on a site before you join the site. I think you have wasted 10 months on this site as they won't pay.

I know it paid when it first started, but then people started complaining. I stopped getting creddited for the articles I read, and that plus others complaining about lack of payment lead me to just stop using the site. Whether or not it still pays, I'm not sure. Wait a little longer. If not, they've likely scammed you. I'm really sorry.

Hi. I think they are scam. the minimum pay out is too high 50$. It's hard to believe them. I'm sorry to hear that. I don't know the sites readbud is. But when i see minimum 50$, i afraid to do it...

Hmmmm! I am not a member of said site, but my friend transferred the task to me to do the reading and rating the articles. Hence, my earnings is more than half the payout. Good enough that I read your discussion. I will not continue it anymore. I will also tell my friend that I will stop doing the task for him because it would be a waste of my time.

I am so sorry to hear that you have most likely been scammed by that site. I was a member of the site for a period of time after they first opened up, but I decided not to dedicate very much of my time to the site because of the fact that it was such a new site and there was no one that had been paid by the site. I choose to wait and see if there are other people that get paid by sites before I decide whether or not to be active with a site.

Because of the few payment proofs we have seen - and those could've been altered - and the high payout amount, I feel that this is a scam site. If you requested in November, you should wait a while though, since it's just now December. I wouldn't read anything else/vote anymore though until you do get that payment, if you do.

My dear so sorry to hear that. Aren't you aware that Readbud is a scam. It has refused, denied and ignored not just you but so many members who reached the payout so I myself have stopped working on that site after I have proven it is a scam. Here is a proof if you wish to read http://www.bukisa.com/articles/323273_readbud-get-paid-to-read-articles-a-certified-scam. Now I suggest you just learn from that experience. Move on and invest your time rather in legitimate site such as myLot.

Despite some people's complaints, I still see a lot of people joining this site. The minimum payout is too high. Hopefully you'll get yours one of these days.

I usually don't pass judgment until someone requests payment and wasn't successful before I call a site a scam but my gut feeling was telling me that Readbud is a scam site that's why I stopped rating articles when I reached thirteen dollars.

I know from before only that it is a scam. Please dont work on this site and never believe anything on this site because it is a scam from very before. And Dont also upgrade anykind of package for this readbud. It never pays. Hope it helps.

I was a member of that readbud too but until now I haven't receive my payment. as many said: IT'S A SCAM SITE..! in fact, none of mylotters posted a discussion of receiving a payment from them..so good luck to you..all I can say, when you are near to pay out..you will receive a very distracting and annoying pop ups..

yeah the same thing had happened with me too.Actually frankly speaking i had a doubt in my mind about this website the day i joined this website after looking at the payment structure per article. it was actually unbelievable to get such amount of money per article.But still i though let us do a try.and i did it.when i reached payout and requested the payment then i too was waiting for a long time to get my money(hard earned).

They are certified......to be a scam site. I was a member of theirs too, but after some time, I found out something really fishy about their payment system and their so called payment proofs. I don't think those are real payment proofs. They just want to lure people into joining their site and help make money for them. I even heard that Readbud is run by the same type of people running the scam survey site AWSurveys. I've quit Readbud a long time ago. I don't think it's possible to reach their minimum payout.

I have also completed my 50 dollars and waiting almost one month now.......but nothing has happened....Also I have not heard from anyone that they got money from readbud. I will wait this month and if they don't pay, I will consider it as another spam. What a waste of time.

maybe you should take it first by requesting an explanation from the parties relating to the site.
