I belonged to a number of paid to click sites until last night. I have come to the conclusion that I am being scammed. I was working for some of these companies for over a month and I had only made about 5 dollars, definately not enough when you considered how much time I spent clicking on their adds. Last night I went to cash out on one of the sites and I learned that I have to upgrade and pay almost 300 just to upgrade. All this so that I could get the money that I earned clicking their adds. What would you do? Would you keep with it until you made enough money to upgrade? Do you think that I should have waited? I tried to send these companies a message asking if they needed me to upgrade in order to get paid, and I never got a response. Has this ever happened to you? Would you keep trying to get in touch with someone? Or would you just cut your loss and move on?

Yes, that's so sad and im sorry for that, but that is the bad thing about earning some extra cash in the net! we dont know when the sites will just go with all our money and we dont know if they will pay us or no, its sad because we work hard to earn a little more money and they just scam us, and we cant do it anything about this...

Hello Crivas, I totally understand you i lived lots of disappointments during these years, There are some good sites though which are not scam and paid several times but sometimes it is not enough if you compare the time you spent online/ There you can go ahead and check some sites which are actually publishing all scam sites before you join and make some investment to these sites. Have a great day!

Hello Crivas, sad to hear what happened to you but i guess you have to let go of that website because it was really a scam. I don't go for a site that tells me to pay first to get my payout. If only $5 is there , let them have it, i would not mind at all as long as i don't get into their trap of such paying to get paid back. I didn't buy such site like paying first before you register. I only choose site recommended by friends here and i do research for it too to make sure that i am joining a legitimate website. And i don't like paying first before registering. Most of the websites i joined is free and i am getting my payout without paying them also. I suggest you better leave that site because it is clearly a scam website. Happy Mylotting!

That sucks, personally if something tries to con me I dump it and cut my losses as you never know just how much more of it is a scam. Anything that needs you to pay them to pay you sounds dubious at best and something I would well avoid.

If membership is free why should payout require an upgrade? Those are scam sites, u upgrade membership to earn more not to clear out ur earnins, those are scams post the sites here so we can avoid them.

Crivis, I sympathize deeply, forget it, these sites are definitely trap and I have experienced several times. Long before, I joined some survey sites and earn 1.6 dollars, but since, I had't receive any surveys again, well, the limit of paid is 3 dollars, so there was 1.4 dollars left that I should earn. The fact is that it needs several years, till now I have not got the left all the same.

Don't send any money! I'm sure they haven't responded to your complaints but will find a way to take your money in a heartbeat. Cut your losses and move on. Many of these scammers open and close these websites often to keep in business. We need to get to the bottom of who owns the website so we can get the word out on their websites. There are only a few sites that do what they promise and sadly it is through trial and error that we discover most of them. I always check here on mylot and see what the community says about them. By sharing our experiences we can get these scammers out once and for all.

The gambler in us would push us to gamble on it. But this upgrading business with 300 to retrieve 5 dollars sounds like a convenient bait. I will never go for it. I will simply leave it taking the disappointment in stride.

is it really happened,how rude, after helping and work for them, this is how they paid you? Sometimes we really need not to give our hundred percent trust to others, but in this business, we are really taking a risk here, not knowing if we are really paid after, but its not the end, be patient and never give up, never give up and never give up. you may stop working on this company but never stop looking for something to earn..move on!!!
