Excuse me on this one because I honestly do not know whats going on. I have been seeing posts and even discussions about people doing this but still a little confused by it. I mean I understand the rules your only supposed to have one account but how does having more than one account even help these people? You still have to put the same effort into starting and maintaining discussions and post so what is so appealing? I feel like it took me forever to get to my almost 500 post and holding 8 accounts just sounds like soo much work? Is scammining Mylot really getting that popular and what are the scams, is there more than just having several accounts? I think I have heard the star system and rating system could be affected but I was new so I didnt quite understand that either....man I really got to read the mylot manual.;)

Wow! One mylotter having 8 accounts! It is rather surprising and shocking also. One can understand, if it is two or three. What's the fun in having eight accoun ts? How much time to invest for all eight! I agree with your views.

Okay, I'm the guy that led the charge to get the guy with 8 accounts banned. It's like this: the guy opens his first account; then he adds 7 other accounts as referrals; he is making money from his original account, then responding to his own posts with his referral accounts (which he gets a percentage of each of those accounts because he referred them so he's getting what each account makes on it's own plus what the original account makes from the referred accounts. It's a pain in the a$$ to do, but that's how it works.

ohh wow i so know what you mean they still have to put in the same effort so why have 8 ccounts also thy cant have al the earning form all the accounts go to the same papal so they have to also have multiple paypal accounts for each mylot account so they are really making it harder for them selves.

If you know for certain that someone has more than one account then you are aiding and abbeting that person to carry on being fraudulent. Put you mind at rest and help then to be caught. Have a great day from Deeeky

I'm with you, I don't know why they would do it except they they can't log into their original accounts or have been banned. You're right, you have to put the same effort with posting and the like, so I don't get it either, unless they have other people working for them. And, it would take longer to reach payout, too. The only thing I can think of is that they are responding to their own discussions, but that, also wouldn't help them that much.

If you feel they are cheating why don't you report this to mylot. i have been working hard to get my star. i don't like anyone getting higher ranks by cheating. please pm me their names so that i can also check whether they are cheating or not. and i will report them to mylot if found cheating.

ok. its very irritating when someone plays with the rating system. i have been working hard to get that and i don't want anyone to get it easily with cheating. i had come across a discussion in which the author starts a discussion and another one with only one letter difference responds it. then in the same minute he gets the br. the discussion was also a single lined one with no description.

I guess earning the regular rate for yourself, plus the referral rate for yourself is how it works. But you wouldn't be earning very much more at all. It wouldn't be worth getting kicked off for. Anyway, if it is wrong it is wrong, no matter how much money is or isn't involved, there are rules and you either do the right thing or you don't. It is amazing how many people try to cheat in this world.
