What's the first thing that you will do if a site didn't pay you? Say they didn't pay you $10 for weeks of working for them? Will you write negative comments about them on a site/blog? Well it happened to me before and I did write comments about them in their forum site. I waited a week patiently but the admin keeps on ignoring my messages so I decided to write negative comments about them for not paying me and good thing they pay me in a matter of days.

I wouldn't generally join a site that has a $10 payout anyway. i would join sites that have a low payout like

You mean you just let it go that easy? $10 is quite a good amount specially if you worked for it for weeks. At least you can send message to the admin or post a complaint in their forum site if they have one.

Jlyn@ got a point there.

There's nothing much I can do if the site won't pay me, but I would definitely inform the others about it in their forum or in sites like myLot, so that others would be aware and not waste so much time on that site.

Right. That's what I did to make other members and people know if they really are paying or not.

well i guess you made the right choice.at least you get to have your money then.some of the sites get closed quickly without a warning and we have to do nothing but get frustrated about the efforts that we made and money which we could have gained.at least they paid you.i will surely do the same if i get to find any such thing in any of the sites am working in.

Sometimes sites that are paying high earnings will tend to turn scam one day. So just be on a lookout for those.

It wasn't really a scam site but I think the admin is just intentionally delaying his payout. Other sites are even worse because they don't pay at all.

I am glad that you got your money. I am always concerned that this will happen to me but so far, I have gotten paid by all my sites. However, I fear that if a site does not pay you or goes broke, there is not much you can do. You can write about them on line but that is about it. Why did the site that you are writing about not pay you? Did they ever give you a reason? Are you still working for this site?

The site had stop running 2 years ago. They did give me some reason but I don't remember it.

Same like you I will write bad comments on the site. Its really dissappointing not getting any money after my hard work and time.

That's true. I think most people will do the same as I did.

Simply i had reached minimum payout in some sites. But still they dont paid me they asked me to wait for one month or more. Generally i believe only instant payout sites eventhough the site is legit i cant wait 30days for that small payout. So when i reach minimum payout they just leave those site. Just waiting to see whether i got paid after their cashout waiting days. I simply say u to choose only instant payout sites as your earning sites.

You got a point there of course but mylot is not an instant payout site either but it pays on time I guess.

yes definitely will do the same as what you did, you work for it so you deserve to earn it. Can you tells us what work is this so may others would prevent to further join it

It's a good thing that they paid you. I hope that won't happen to any of us here in mylot. If that would happen, perhaps I would message the admin and tell them about my problem.

Mmm! What if you were me, working on mylot but not sure if you will be paid? I'm in a restricted country, but I have been receiving my earnings from other sites without any problem, I hope mylot will do the same. Anyway, I won't blame mylot for not paying me.. Mylot only follows rules set by international body controlling money transfer.

In the first place, there is nothing we can do if we do not get paid. All we can say is that we got scammed. I will just have to go on with what I am doing. I will not allow this to stop my life.

The first thing I usually do is go online to the Better Business Bureau. If they are not signed on with them, I just ask them to check up on the company. I think you call it a review. Sometimes, I check with them first anyway to see if they are connected with the Better Business Bureau first. glowin100

I will understand if there will be a delayed of weeks because probably they are paying manually but if they will let me wait forever that will be the time that I will write them a negative feedback.

That's called a scam site, and asking a scam site to pay you is like asking a kidnapper to please let you free. they just won't pay you no matter what you do, and there's nothing else you can try.

hello, what can we do except it. We can only cry. Forum and blogs are the right platform for it. Indeed we have not any inforceable agreement with any site which we joined. So we cannot take any action against them. It is best to do any work for a site we must be investigate about status of that site. Be-aware from scam sites.

If I know the site is paying but maybe they a technical cliche with their paying system, I would give them a change to rectify the problem and pay for my work. But if they don't act upon it, then the admin should come clear as to why I can't get paid. If possible,they should tell me what is expected of me to see money streaming in. Else, I would do what you did.

Of course I will. Not just for angry sake but also to let more people know about such scam site & keep them away from it. A way to help fellow online earners to know the truth of these sites.

Hi Jacruz! I think I would do the same thing! If I sent the admin a message about the problem and they ignore me, I will not just complain about them in their forum, I will also spread my complaints and bad experience with them to other websites. Being not paid is one thing, and being ignored is another thing. Being not paid already is annoying, and getting ignored will just add to the frustration and annoyance. So I won't just complain in their forum, I'll spread the matter to other sites so people will be discouraged to join.

Like you, I first send a site a ticket regarding delayed payments, then, if there's still no response I take actions. If I invested on the site, I file a dispute via Alertpay or Paypal. And since I have my blog, I move the site to my scam list and also post my experience on some sites that provide reviews about that site.
