For the last couple of months I've been working many different PTC (paid to click) sites. In the process I've invested in many of them to the total amount of $350. This to me is a lot of money, and at this point it seems as though it's going to take a long time to get it back. This is my second month review of my experience with PTC sites. I will list the ones that have scammed me and give info on legit ones in this post.
Most PTC sites are scams, period. I've been scammed now by about 6 different ones out of the 9 or so I've invested into. Basically, don't join a new PTC site that hasn't been around for a year or more. All of these new PTC sites coming out are almost always scams. I don't care how sincere the admin seems at these sites either, don't invest into them unless you want to take a big chance in losing your money. Even if a site pays you the first small payout, this is mostly to hook you into thinking they are legit to have you invest a large amount.
These PTC sites are basically criminals at work. I've come to this conclusion after a couple months and with so many ripping me off. You have no recourse with these sites, and they can rip you off in so many ways. They simply selectively pay, not pay at all, mess with the rented referrals average, glitch the autopay, and maybe even simply shut down completely in an instant. All of these things have happened to me. Here is a list of SCAM PTC sites you want to avoid:
I would also suggest you stay away from Grandbux because it requires you to click at a certain time of the day or else you will not get a profitable average. For me this means I'd have to stay up late at night to click. Also, Digadz, although paying, they are always having glitches and they are running off a model that will soon enough collapse. Paidverts can sustain itself because it goes into debt default with their sister site Mytrafficvalue, but Digadz has no sister site to do this and will eventually go under.
Even the sites that do pay, it's never like it seems. The rented referral average is manipulated and the fees often are so large it makes your profit even smaller. The whole time you have to click on these ads everyday without fail, otherwise you'll not get paid the next day from your referrals. For instance Noblebux has paid me about 5 times, but the fees from them and Paypal equal 10%!
There are so many scams out there. Here is a list of the sites I'm still trying to work:
- PTC Stairs
I can verify that PTC Stairs and Noblebux do pay, but the other ones I can't yet. Neobux and Clixsense are solid places that have been around, so can be trusted. Buxbery is the same as PTC Stairs, so this should be fine too. Actionbux I don't know yet, but will find out soon enough. I wouldn't invest much there though cause it's too new.
The whole experience has been interesting, but overall it's turning into a waste of time. I'm sure I'm not the only one to be scammed over and over. That's how these criminals make their money. Neobux and Clixsense are about the only legit sites like this out there. All the other ones as far as I'm concerned are scams in the making or in part. Paidverts included, as they will do this thing called a Debt swap where someone has to loose money for others to make money.
That's really the general theme with these kinds of sites, someone has to loose money in order for someone else to make money. Not everyone can make money, otherwise the site will crash. Neobux is a solid place, but making a profit there isn't as easy as people think. The rented referral averages must be rigged, because you simply cannot make a good average with your rented referrals. They likely are simply manipulating the averages until the people give up.
Clixsense is different because they don't have the rented referral scheme, so it's simply clicking ads and making money from direct referrals. Clixsense is the best PTC site really, but you won't make much from them unless you have many direct referrals. This is the same with Paidverts.
In general the whole PTC scene is a waste of time. I set up a YouTube channel, two blog sites, and have written over 5 reviews about these sites, and all I've gotten out of it is a loss of about $340! It's really a disappointment. All I hope to do at this point is keep working the ones I have up there that are legit and try to make my money back. This could take a year though the way it's going. Imagine working a year on this to break even!
If you are thinking about investing in PTC sites, then stick with Neobux and Clixsense. If you go outside of these, then make sure the site has been around at least a year and has good reviews about it paying people on time. The most important part about these kinds of sites is: are they going to pay us or not? Think about it, if they don't pay people, then what is the use. And if they don't end up paying you, what are you going to do? Nothing, cause it's a total scam artist dream to rip people off in such a manner.
So, I'm moving on from this kind of scene. I have to work the few legit ones I'm already invested in to try and make my money back, but the illusion has been broken. I can admit I was snared into some sort of gambling dream, but now I'm back to normal and will get to work writing and other things that actually have meaning. I suggest you learn from my mistakes and be very careful with these PTC sites, and most of all don't think you are going to make a lot of money from them. Maybe you end up making $50/month profit, but even that is going to take awhile. Hope this helps.
