There are some that "pay" a dollar or so per click. There was one time I earned around $2000 but minimum withdraw is $10,000, or I could pay premium of around $200 to withdraw immediately. They also offer buy or rent direct referral and I have to pay for it. Why not deduct the premium and referral fee from what I earned? I mean, is it some kind of a joke? It is obviously a scam. I had to stop or I might be fooled by that site because of that huge and fast "income" scheme. There are also some PTC sites that steal DNS or spread malware and viruses (I was a victim of that).
I trust ClixSense. I've been a member for a few months but I'm definitely satisfied. I will upgrade soon.
You can't possible be serious - The $1 per click and $2000 you earned is not real money at least it is not really worth $2000...$10,000 minimum cashout ? LOL - that is a dead, slap in your face giveaway of a SCAM....Right, like there is any PTC that will gladly make tons of PayPal mass payments of $10k each, even if they could, they'd get their account limited pretty quickly......faster than you can say SCAM.
the ponzi model is used especially by bux sites, that is what it was intended to be initially. They use upgrades and renting / recycling money, renewals and purchases to pay back investors through a ponzi scheme. Bux sites keep you hooked and build traffic using the renting of bots, which is a lottery really, but scripted not to give out more money than money coming in - some win, some lose, some break even.......... Keep in mind that a site does not need to use bots to scam people - they can sell or rent real people as referrals but control the clicks you are getting credited for, in order to control cash going out....
having a LOW AVG with rented referrals is often perceived by people as "bots". When actually, the opposite is true. Majority of bux sites using bots actually give you amazingly high AVG and active referral bots, inciting you to invest more money (greed factor), and statistically people will re-invest their earnings, and this is how the scamming admin hooks you - they bait you with the high AVG bots, then BOOM, they run with the money or significantly lower your AVG and make you lose (taking the money back) - this is what ONBUX did !!!
The performance and patterns I am seeing with my DIRECT REFERRALS here on clixsense are identical to the patterns I have seen with my rented referrals back in the days on that other big PTC.
It is a major headache this whole deal with referrals which is why I always like relying on my own efforts to earn money. Whether you rent or get direct referrals they will eventually become inactive over time - it is statistic and human nature because people become lazy even if you put a huge earning opportunity in front of them. I have a US referral not doing 1 single bloody task or offer when he could be making $5, $10, $20 a day - Looking at his stats he has a bunch of DRs, mostly inactive......so he's only earning a few pennies and barely clicking on his own....... People want to earn money but are too lazy to work (some)......So this is the problem when dealing with rent or direct referrals.........which is why it is good to rely on your own earnings.........Unless you have direct referrals you have a 1:1 contact and that you referred yourself without recruiting them randomly........preferably people you know.
Misconceptions people have about BOTS, those are myths and not facts:
* BOTS click only 1 or 2 ads a day, humans click always the maximum !
* BOTS click well at first then stop clicking, unlike human referrals !
* BOTS click every few days, humans click every single day !
* BOTS are programmed so you NEVER profit and lose money !
The term "BOT" is commonly used when talking about referrals on bux sites. It is often believed (and a fact) that bux sites do not use real referrals but use a script with a pre-programmed algorithm to allocate credited clicks based on site revenues. BOTS don't actually click any ads - The non human referrals are simply part of a global script running and controlling the AVG and credited clicks. So another misconception people have is that you are renting "BOTS" that click ads instead of human referrals, which is wrong because the non-human referrals you are renting are not actually clicking anything !
