Last time I registered to a promising program www.paybox.me.This site claims that its purpose is to give service as a payment processor to its members worldwide just like a Paypal and Alertpay function.Since it is not yet launched so early registrants or early birds get a reward of an amount but not a real cash yet. Paypal gives money on its wishlist program, maybe Paybox would be another generous program. When I open the website now I was automatically redirected to a website www.VIRTAPAY.com

I will not call it a scam yet because members are not made to deposit any money, yet. It is obvious that you did not log in for a relatively long time, thus missing the announcement in one of the blogs. They did say there was going to be a name change to better reflect the nature of the site. Have you tried logging in?

Yes, I immediately close the page after I saw the new name instead of Paybox.me.Well, as long as I did not spend any singe cent yet I would still open it for sometimes and would not hesitate to read for sometimes especially that you gave me the idea to do so.

I have never joined that site, I never would. A site that claims to be able to pay you $25 a day to do nothing at all should make you wonder how they could pay that much to anyone if they don't have any revenue. The fact that they still haven't launched and owe probably millions to people makes me think that something is seriously wrong with this site. Having the site redirect to another site is something else to raise a red flag. If you're a member, I would delete my account immediately and make sure that you don't get any suspicious spam from them in the future.

I did not delete my account yet.Somehow I EXPECTED that it will turn to legit in next few days after reading the feedbacks from its members who believe that the program is a scam.

There are lots of scam sites everywhere so everyone should be careful. Most of the sites tries to get your email address and information and after that spam you. I've been on this boat and receive at least 1000 spam or junk mails to my mailbox every single day. it was really frustrating. Beware!

I saw that website months and months ago and right away, it did seem like a rather obvious scam. It has been in prelaunch for what, six months. A pretty length prelaunch period. There are a lot of people who would fall for such a thing, given the fact that are a lot of people on the Internet well...who really knows why people fall for such things on the Internet anymore. So yeah this did turn out to be a scam, as I think that many people who did not sign up to expect it to. Not everything on the Internet is a scam but there are so many scams out there, that you really have to look twice at every thing these days. And remember, just because you are paranoid, does not mean they are not out to scam you out of every cent you have.
