You look at NeoBux, ClixSense, Clicksia, Donkey Mails, Hits 4 Pay and you'd think that they'd all see that a long honest site will be successful while trying hard for 3 years or something and then scamming us (Matrixmails, PtcBox did just that? At least I can't login anymore for a very long time). What do they earn with that? Sure scam sites ate our few dollars but after that they just earned very little. Sooner or later they'll get caught cause most of the experienced of us know their names and the scam sites ptc they runned, even if it was just as partners. I mean if the scam us they are over in this area, and maybe others. I don't know about you but when I learn someone is a scammer I do pass the news on, I think it's public service. Really don't get why they think they are winning when scamming us. Why would someone scam people that work for them? Gee.

Hi katie! The way I see it, there are two reason why a site turn scam. The first reason is intentional. Sites of this type already planned this thing. They will create enticing promotion so that they could collect money form those people who singed up on their site with the hope that they could earn more. The other type is mismanagement on the part of the owner. They could no longer cope with the expenses because their expense is bigger than their income. So we should be careful when joining site, new sites especially. Because even sites who are already in this kind of business for a long time may go bankrupt. Similarly, we should also help them become stronger the same way that they are helping us earn money. Have a wonderful day!

If a site has been paying for years and later turn scam, I believe it's because they couldn't afford to sustain the business any longer. The reason could be mismanagement, inappropriate system, or not enough revenues. The most common reason is they can no longer afford to pay their members honestly, because lack of funds. An innovative management will always try to find a way to get away from crisis, but if that's also failed, then the end is near. And about scamming activities.. Well, if they want, they can always scam people again by using different identities..

The reason is that scammers stand to make more money with less work. Some scam website owners seem to maintain there websites for a little bit and then they eventually just stop responding and the site closes down. Others are never legit to start off with. It does take time to maintain earning websites I'm sure but I still don't think it's right for people to cheat others of their time and money.

The main reason why they do such things is because of MONEY. Most of the time they know that they can get away with what they have done easily. Money is the prime mover of almoat anything here in this world, so no wonder that most of the people get tempted on acquiring money no matter what it takes - good or bad.

That's for sure. There are few new tempting sites I know are paying right now and would love to start earning too but when their owners are not scammers per say but were co-owners or moderators on ex-scammer sites I won't, even though they didn't own it they were involved and that doesn't smell right.

Hi, As long as there are people willing to get scammed, there shall always be scammers, those who make nice lies and deception to rob the unwary of their money. It boils down to money, some go the opposite way to get it, stealing, robbery and online scams. One of the best rule I have which has been proven to be very effective is to never pay any amount to anybody when the transaction is doubtful, like paying a certain amount to get a bigger amount of money, that,is a sure fire way to get the nasty end of lies and deceit. When I see dealings like that, the warning bells start ringing on my head and it is either calling the police or getting it out of there as fast as possible.

Well I'm sure no one is willing but I also don't invest. There's no telling who we can trust, although NeoBux and ClixSense seems pretty solid.

They are fond of money and they want to earn it by hook or by crook.
