I was posting on anoter forum and I cashed out..and never got paid ..I had 116 referrals and not a penny is being sent my way..I cant name the forum but it really upsets me. At first you asked and they said in 2 weeks..well now they say after you push cashout button you must sign up for an offer and then you get paid... They say all the offers are free..but it's impossible to get through the offer.. I tried one for college and it had pages and pages and pages!

I'm experiencing a similar situation with ChaCha. You can read about it on here under ChaCha scam. It's really an awful situation, and I sympathize. I'm out 441.80 dollars.

I went ove to Chacha..but it was so confusing to me that I didnt get involved..So sory that you lost so much money!! Mine wasnt that much but I can say..I hate when people take advantage of others... There is a saying "what goes around comes around" and those who go about making fortunes out of other's misfortunes will all have their day.. If not on this earth when they stand before God!

I believe there is an online site, kind of a form of the Better Business Bureau that you can report these companies to. If not, someone should report them. It is really sad that websites take advantage of people and their time, and don't deliver what they promise. I have been burned a few times myself and it isn't a good feeling, so I can empathize. Please share the information on the scam sites. You can post it in a comment if someone requests it and it isn't against the guidelines. A referral link/web traffic address just can't be listed as the topic for a discussion. So sorry about what happened.

Lets say it has something of a college ring to it.. I was all gunho for the site.. The owner constantly changing the rules..and changed so you can no longer see the post update..like it use to Every week something different And if that isnt enough you have the "red" mods who go about belittling people I think it is a disgrace!

I too am a member of that site. I only posted a couple of times though, because I felt like something was hinky. Report it...he can't sue you for speaking the truth. He knows he is in the wrong. I say call his bluff, and with the help of others that have been burned, it won't be hard to shut down the site. At the very least it will be helping others not get in the same position. If I can help you, I will. I know how hard you have worked to build up your site and referrals to various sites, and I really think it is a shame that good people get sucked into others schemes.

Any help I can get would be great..perhaps we should try to get a petition from all those who were burned there..I spent over $60 there and each time I could cash out I put it back by taking referrals..Now that I noticed they are not earning me nothing..even though they are top posters ..and I dont want to trade my cash I have become an evil person.. When You stand for right..sometimes you stand alone!!

I would be upset too and hope that you are not a victim of another scam site. It sounds like it could be a scam from what you mentioned in your topic. This has happened to me before and stopped using them. I would stay away from sites like that my friend. I am sorry they did this to you.

I see why your upset now. I tried to defend them once. Until i found out the truth. Sorry they did that to you. I certainly do understand. What is going to end up happening is that site will have so many complaints against them . The owner will have to close. I think the mods wont be quite so smug then. It is kind of hard to have fun or even have a good discussion if you have to worry about making a mod mad at you. At least here if you don't like something and say something. Your not worried about a mod getting rid of your discussions.

It is just very frustrating to know that after we've spent our time and poured our effort to these sites, we find out they are scams. It is not a joke sitting on hours in front of our computers just to make out some money. It's exhausting,too. I can just imagine how you must feel with this situation. I'm sorry to hear that. What is this site anyway so I won't make the same mistake of spending my time there?

begins with a "D" and ends in a "K". I am not posting there anymore. This is the second time I heard a bad story about this site. And no one can put a lawyer against you even if they're claiming they'll sue. Many others have put down mylot on that site and the only thing that ever happened was a "warning message". And honestly that's all that will ever happen. The owner of D.C. has to know that there is competition out there and if he won't pay his members, that in itself is a scam. HE would be the one expecting a lawsuit. Don't let him intimidate you. Remember, he can't do anything. Mylot is WAY bigger than his site and has been around longer (his site started in January). I did all the research and this kid is just a computer geek who sits behind his computer in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

I know you are upset and i would be to.There was a site i was on before and alot of people were upset because they did not get paid.I was one of the lucky ones to get paid from the site,they are now doing some sort of drawing to get paid.After i got my earnings i stopped.I hope you get your money.It doesn't make any sense that there are so many scams out there.
