Guess who's back?!! Yup, it looks like the makers of "Onbux" is back
with their new site ProBux. Those of you that didn't use OnBux might be
confused as to why we are not Recommended this site. And then of course
I am sure some of you that have used OnBux are in denial and just
simply don't care,
as long as it pays (at least for now). Well let me give you the break
down as to why we believe this is the same site from the same owners.
1. Script - Lets start with their script...Everyone is
all excited because they think they are dealing with a new and
unique script. Hate to break it to everyone, but it has been used before. It is a GeN3
heavily modified based script. More or less a script that has been put
together from other scripts. If you look at the cashout page, forum,
and other areas of the site you will see the similarities to OnBux. Just use
your eyes... Think about it, if is custom made then why would you make a custom made site to look like other sites that have been used in the past? It is not rocket science. It is not about the script, it is the lie they tell which reveals who they really are:
The Cashout Page
Also, I am not the only one that recognizes it. So it is
not just me saying this and I am not just pulling this out of thin air ...
2. Location - This modified script that has been used in OnBux,
UPBux, and other sites was from Brazil. And where is ProBux from?
yes, I am aware of the fact that there are many within the PTC Industry
that are from Brazil and that it could be just a coincidence. But with this same modified script that has been used for OnBux and UpBux who was from Brazil too? With the same "bux" model too. I am not falling for this again.
3. PayPal Account - Not only does paypal show their
location but also the account creation date. Anyone find it odd
that a new site shows up with a modified script that does not share
their history that they had within the PTC industry? It is probably because they are
not new to this, and they have ran past sites that are no longer online. Paypal shows that their account was created July
31 2012. It is not an
established account and was only created little a month
from the launch date (August 28).
Don't be surprised if you see their PayPal limited because
they are using it for such a risky site...of course will they will most
blame paypal just like UpBux and OnBux did. Also BuxSL, which I might add some felt that site was from OnBux as well...
4. A "bux" site - Expensive upgrades, fake fixed ads,
rentals, and so forth... It has all the bells and whistles of your
typical bux site which I am sure will please many "bux" users. However,
this type of model is very unstable and usually dies in due time.
5. direfire aka dm4140b - Everyone that used OnBux remember the mod "dm4140b". Who was proclaimed as being close with the admin of OnBux. When ProBux was in development and almost ready to go public, a user by the name of "direfire" shows up on EMS forum. A new account there with a new name and a new cute baby animal avatar to go with it. Just like their old account. Posting like crazy to get their post count up and ready to start promoting and luring people into ProBux.
The funny thing is that the topic of discussion for their first post on EMS with their new account was about OnBux. Before any of you claim that this is just some mod using another site...know that this person rarely uses other sites and as they claimed in one of their first posts on EMS "Been out of the industry for a while. When I left NeoBux and onBux were the two biggest sites."
They also register again with EMS just 6 days before ProBux creates their new PayPal account. This is no coincidence. The mod dm4140b was OnBux's most devoted mod and did a lot of support work on forums and blogs for them. They knew ahead of time that OnBux was coming back with a new site and started to promote it to lure more people into this scammer's site when they fully launch.
You can see full details about this former mod of OnBux here:
6. False Rumors & Allegations? - Shortly after we posted this review the owner respond to this
review on his forum and saying I and others are making this all up. Some
of the fans of this site even went as far to say that we are their competitor.
Which is completely false! If you have been in this industry long enough you know who I am, and that I am not a site owner. It is sad that people will make up these stories to put down us for warning people about this site and its owner.
Think about it, wouldn't it be better for me to just promote this site and ignore the warnings and ride this
Ponzi till it collapses? So what do I get from warning people about this site? Just a bunch of headaches from the fan club that will post snide remarks in our email boxes and talk bad about us at every chance they get because we are a threat to their downline. So think about that before you decide who is right or wrong about this site. People don't want you to know about this because it
affects their wallets. Most people will only look out for themselves. They don't care what happens to those who come in later when the site
collapses. To them it is about money.
"We took months to complete the script
that we are using"
I am sure it took months when the first used it in their past sites. The
modified script is the same just a new color scheme and a few graphics. Other
than that, it is the same site from OnBux. Experienced PTC users know
this and ProBux is misleading everyone by saying everyone else is wrong and
"foolish and childish to make a comparative statement". We are not fools
and we know what I eyes tell us. You can re-code it and add to it all you
want but we know it is the same people behind OnBux . Also if you look at their rebuttal
they seem to know a lot about GeNs. Ever wonder why? And no, they didn't just ask their coder. Ask yourself this, which sites have
they ran before? Such a professional team, where did they get their experience from? The truth is that this is not their first site and
that are not talking about it.
"The country is the same as other PTC sites."
They seem to missed the part where we said that the script they are
using is being used from those only from Brazil. UpBux, OnBux, and now
ProBux. So once again, to them they think it is silly? It is not silly
if you were scammed from those sites and then see the same site back
again from Brazil. It is called common sense people.
"PayPal account and their creation date."
Here is their reply to this claim:
"Our company had to make an account especially for transactions - ProBux,
this account was created to move large volumes of transactions and for
that you need a business account."
Yes we know all of that, but your so called company was only created for the sake of
this site and not even an established company just like your paypal account. OnBux was a
registered company and look where they are at. How many PTC sites you see now days showing up with bogus company credentials? It is not hard to make a new company name. Just pay a fee and register it. Their paypal account is not established either, and I am sure PayPal will shut them down in the upcoming months just like they did with their other
Ponzi site OnBux.
"ProBux is an authentic company, and can be accessed
through the Trustwave's site"
Once again, it doesn't take much and don't rely on that little logo on
their site. For a fee you can register your made up company get the
documents and send it to them. So does that stop the site from scamming
or stop people from registering a new business every time they open a
new site? No it does not.
"Fixed fake ads"
Their reply: "We have affiliate relationships with other advertisers
websites, among them directly:"
This reply was the one that I found to be quite funny. Yes, I have
affiliate relationships too. It is called promoting your own referral
links! Folks the meaning of PTC is getting paid to click on ads from advertisers. Not clicking on ads from the owner who wants to make it a
Ponzi where they sell upgrades and rentals. Sure, there might be a few sites that can stay online and offer this, but the difference is that they have
Will I ever recommend this site? I am done promoting their ponzi schemes and I am not recommending them period. I don't care if it stays online and pays for over 10 years! It doesn't erase what they did and what they continue to do now. You can't just "etch a sketch" that all away. They lie about who they are and they don't reveal any information about their history. While all thing things listed above by themselves is not a sign of a scam, if you combine everything you be able to see the bigger picture, and why I am not recommending this site.

likely bogus and used to lure in people)

site (Expensive upgrades, rentals, 1 cent ads, ect...)
Same fixed fake ads "eToro, BinaryOptions, ect..."
If you enjoy such sites where you get paid to click on the same eToro and
Binary Options ads with risky investments, then this site is for you. But remember my warning when the site starts to fail and stops paying. It is not a question of if, but when. It could be 2 years or 10 years.
As I told everyone earlier
(when I merged the scam and not recommended list -
link to topic ), I will no longer wait till sites like this one does harm . As I stated earlier, this is a site from OnBux
and they will do what they do best. Build a site, pay, and then let it
fail. Which is why they are now on our Not Recommended List.
anyone would like to share their experience that they had with this
site, whether it is good or bad, feel free to do so on the
message board on our forum.
