Over and over again!
March 29, 2011 12:56am CST
I have noticed that many people have started making discussions about sites asking whether the sites they are working in are scam or not. I would like to throw some light on that and hope that my article here would be helpful to others. When you register in anew site always give your fake names and mail id's. As the paypal, alertpay and other id's can be exchanged later. You only need to have a real mail id and i would recommend gmail for the same. GOOGLE 1) Check the site in google first. Simply type the site name and type scam next to it. For example if you want to know if rastabux is scam or not, then type "rastabux scam" in google and see it for yourself. 2) Check some sites like ptc-investigation. These sites give complete reviews on the site available. They can prove to be very useful. PAYMENT PROOF 3)Make sure you watch the payment proof of that site. Ptc-investigation can help you with it also. HIGH PAYING 4) If the site is high paying then obviously it's scam. Many sites like readbud, paid in seconds are all scam because no one would give you money unless you work for it. Note that here also you might have some sites which say that they autosurf and you get money. Sites like interadmedia, surfjunky are like that and they are all scam. FORUM 5) Always check if the site has a forum. They are always helpful where you can interact with other members and post all your queries and doubts over there. The moderators and admin would occasionally post something important there which would help you. COUNTRIES 6) Check the countries accepted by that particular site and make sure that your country name is in there also otherwise if you are at payout limit and you didn't get that would a big blow to you not to mention waste of time. WHOIS 7) Lookup that site and see if you can find the owner of that site. Usually most of them are some old owners who are starting a new website all over again! I hope i have covered everything here. These simple yet effective methods will help to you to know if a site is legit or not. If i have missed any please do share kindly in here. Also i am sorry for the members who are no longer paying in onbux. Sources say that it's turning scam as most of its members who have upgraded there are not getting any money. Standard members are having not much problems. As i am getting i will be there without upgrading my account and it's advised that you don't upgrade also. Cheers!

Thank you for this information. At times people like me, who are inexperienced bloggers turned to mylot to ask for ideas from its members. These members on the other hand are quite generous with their knowledge and usually responds to discussion to the best of their abilities. In the long run, it becomes a win-win situation for everyone. Because more posts means more income.. lol Going through mylot threads can be enlightening, if I have concerns that are usually bothering me and I would like some sounding board, I usually post it on mylot. And most of the time, I get sensible and well phrased answers. So thank you Mylotters.

Thank you so much for this information. I have done some of the things that you suggested but not thought of others. It has saved me lots of time and money in the past. I have however never thought of giving a fake name and address. What really irritates me is if the phone number is a mandatory field. I fill it out but since I have call display I do not answer any 800 numbers or those that do not display a name.

Aren't you Linda H from ybcr? Well i am glad that my discussion has helped you in here... If you hear the site is legit then no problem in giving your original details. But just to be sure give the fake ones. You can edit your profile later right?
