ConBux (conbux.com) - SCAM
****SCAM site, use caution ****
ConBux will be added to the Scam List and here are the combined reasons why:
1. Owned by a Scammer - Thanks to an anonymous tipster, we found out this site is ran by a previous scam site owner. This site owner is the same owner of Eu-Bux and WillBux. Both are on our scam list for non-payments.
Eu Bux (eu-bux.com) - SCAM
WillBux (willbux.com) - SCAM
If you check the whois you will find that the owner name is Madaras Laszlo.
(he set it to private after this info was revealed)
Check Eu-Bux company registration and you will find the names match:
You can also find them on PTCPay forum:
I also like to add that we were just sent a link to their personal blog showing eu-bux and conbux banners showing with no ref link. A picture sometimes can speak a thousand words...
2. Bribing Members -
Owner decided to ask members to post positive comments here for a fee. Such tactics have been used by scammers before and has never had any influence on us changing their status. http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/3584/forumconbux.jpg
3. A "Bux" Site -
This type of ptc has a very high fail rate. Most "bux" sites go scam
under 6 months, if not within a year. Most rely on upgrades and rental
purchases rather than actual advertisers. A typical "bux" site will show
fixed/self-sponsored ads, sell rentals, and have a higher rate per
click. This type of business model is not very successful and
unsustainable, which is probably why most "bux" sites fail.
4. New Site - We do not recommend investing or buying
upgrades on new sites. For at least 6 months, if not a year. If you
can't wait that long, at least test and get paid first before you decide
The main reason why we see this as a
downside is due to the large number of new sites that go through many
sudden changes during their first 6 months. Changes anywhere from rates
per click, payment processor issues (paypal limitations), and payment
wait times. New sites notorious for changing their terms. Why we do not
recommend investing on new sites.
ConBux might pay at the start but it will eventually end like the last two sites, a scam. We would not recommend this site for the reason previously described. You were warned...
We will continue to monitor this site. If anyone
would like to share their experience that they had with this site,
whether it is good or bad, feel free to do so in our comment section at
the end of this review.
