hoghoney here, I know that most of use here are with the site paidforum, has anyone tried to log on there today? I have and I was shocked to see a message that said they are closed for now because they might have a virius or something in that line. It said something about a DDOS what ever that is but I think that Iam going to cancle them out when they come back up because I cant afford to crash another computor from some crap if you know what I mean. Is this something that I should be worried about or will it be ok to stay with them and will we lose any money that we have builded with them because I have heard that they dont really pay when the time comes. please tell me what your views are on this.

That's what I wonder. I think I gave them my paypal address. So far, nothing's happened. I don't think they can do much without a password.

make sure that your password is not the same specially in your pay pal or e-gold account and also maybe you will receive a fake email from e-gold so do not follow the link and also try to clean your PC well from spyware,adware,virus , i hope that help .

As long you have a good anti virus you should be good. A good firewall also should protect you. We all take chances daily moving about the web and you never know where you will encounter some such trouble. I use avast and it is on duty as I compute. It is free and I have not worries. As much as I get around I have not had a computer crash on me yet. So be patient and let them work it out and update your antivirus and check on that firewall. Then compute on tomorrow. Good luck!!

I went over there for a short while only to return here because of the quality of the discussions and format are better. I think that the payout there was like 50 bucks and while you can potentially reach that relatively quickly I found that alot of people were just posting dumb crap for the pennies.

i have joined many of them. But most of thyem seem to be useless. They either don't pay me or it seems incomes are very slow. I'm not even sure when I'll be able to get payment from mylot. Lets see what happens here.

That paidforum is certified scam they promise to pay you in the forum as long you're member with the site but in a short time only. They avoiding the responsibility to pay the members for not sharing their profit and try another to develop new site the same modus operandi they previously did before. Keep away those scams, be wise and make an action preemptively so you losses nothing.

I tried using them for a while, but the site was so slow that I decided not to use it. I know more than one person who doubted that they even got paid there. I don't know if they did or not. The discussions were terrible and most did not get any responses at all. I used to go through the really old ones and try to respond to them. One guy stole the only discussion I started as his own. So, I don't know if I'm going to go back there, either.

I go there maybe about an hour here and an hour there but it gets boring to fast for me. and most of the discussions are so short that all you can give is a yes or no post. thanks for the input.
