Hi MyLotters! I have read so many positive feedbacks about IM Report Card site. So I decided to join this site, but on the start I come across with big problem - when I started registration the site said that in a country from which I am they seen a lot of fraudulent activity, so I can't to register there...Could anyone give some recommendations or help me?

IMR has the worst TOS and worst policies which hurt peoples feelings just 'cause they pay good doesn't mean that they can take everyone for a ride...They can pretty well say that in the site as to what are the countries they have this ban so they can stop hurting the feelings of people...

Hi mirali110, I can understand the frustration of genuine people not being able to join IM Report Card. However, IMRC does list the countries that are banned...in their FAQ...under Miscellaneous Questions - http://www.imreportcard.com/faqs.cgi Take care...

Same thing happened to me and basically, it's over. if you read through the Terms of Service, it's stated that they are sorry for having such policy but if people approach them to tell them that they'd be honest, they still can't do anything about it. IT's also stated that unless they can think of any other methods of protecting their system, they will retain their ban against some countries. really sad but I can't do anything about it.

I don't care for Imreportcard as I registered there, but the thing of it is, I don't know about the sites that are listed, so therefore, I can't comment on them which really limits me, as the ones I do know about, I can't post comments as they have benn disabled, so I just don't go back there anymore. It is just to hard to make money there if you don't know about any of the things listed there. They seem to disable the comment section a lot, and to me that isn't fair either, as it isn't giving everyone that wants to comment, a chance to. I won't be going back there as it is no use. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

Rosekiss, I've come across a few people saying this about IM Report Card and I hear you, I really do, but I just wanted to ask you if you're aware that there are other ways to make money on IMRC apart from making comments. To reach the $20 payout, 25% of that has to be from the comments you make (or the comments your referrals make). That's 10 comments. There are ways you can make those 10 comments: - consider trying some of the free programs that are reviewed, join them, try them for a day or so, then go back to IMRC and make a comment. I've done this and it's been a win-win situation as I've joined programs that have proved to beneficial to me. - subscribe to IMRC, so that when a new review is added and you have experience of it, you can make a comment early on. Also, if you're one of the first two to comment, you get bonus points. Hopefully, you can get your 10 comments that way. Now, for the other 75% you need to reach payout, you can build them up by: - rating reviews or other members' comments - it's only one credit per rating but it does add up - ratings you receive from members for your comments they deem to be helpful - grading programs you've tried (even for the comments that have been disabled, I believe) - suggesting new sites to IMRC (100 credits per approval) - referring people to IMRC All this adds up, especially the last one. There's a lot of earning power in referring people to IMRC 'cos you can earn whatever they earn (if they're active). To earn from referrals, try and reach payout as it'll give you a real feel for how the site works. Then spread the word about it. Try promoting it on the very traffic exchanges IMRC reviews. Blog about it if you have a blog. If not, join sites like Hubpages.com, Xomba.com or Squidoo.com and write about it there. Promote it on forums (taking into account the forum's rules, of course). Twitter it. Those are just some of the ways you can spread the word. Hope this helps. Sorry if this is long. Wasn't the plan. If you decide to give IMRC another go, get in touch with me if you need any help. Take care...

I didn't really have too much of a problem joining. My biggest problem with it is that a lot of the internet marketing products that exist today I consider a scam or selling junk you can easily find info about online for free, and never plan on paying money into them which means that what I can review on the site is very limited. On top of that, I can't really review a lot of stuff I wanted because I was too late getting to it. So many of the things I wanted to review already had reviews on them. I'm near payout for the first time but I see it being harder and harder to earn there. I think my best bet at this point would be to try to refer people to the site that actually try their luck with internet marketing products. Sorry to hear you can't join. It's really quite a good paying site. There just isn't enough good stuff out there to review. The best solution I think I could tell you is to possibly wait it out & ask in a few months if they can once again allow your given country to join. Just prepare a really formal letter and ask nicely. That's really the best you can do. I'm sure if they're a reasonable site they will lift the ban after a certain amount of time and give the country another chance to make some extra money.

must be something wrong dear. I am from India, and I am accepted as a member. The only problem is that you need to wait for your first review to be submitted. Often I see many reviews of low standard submitted and accepted whereas many reviews which I supposed better were not accepted.
