Ya, if there is a really good scammer out there, it's mighty easy for them to get ya.
So what's really important is to protect yourself first. Doing your research is not
always enough. You have to keep your risks low as possible by taking the necessary
precautions to protect your accounts and such.

OKpay may be wonderful and it probably is legit. I have not taken the time out to
research it. But I have heard some bad talk about it.

Well I can't find it. I do pull up a lot for 'Mazuma' which mostly discusses mobile phones.

I wish I could remember the name of that payment processor and their actual scam was
known by a couple of names....one of the names was at least similar to the name mazuma.

Well let me tell ya a little story and I am sure a lot of people would remember it if I could think of the name.

There was a payment processor that came online some years ago...maybe around 7 years ago.
It was real nice. Very professional. The site was bright greens and whites and was excellent inside and out.
It had a very great layout too.
Inside the member area, you could see those you referred to it, and that was a very cool set up too...you
could mouse over their name and see their country and it was sort of in a big circle type fashion. I mean
that processor had some really truly great features and some I have never seen again.

Millions of people joined it. I couldn't tell you how many people I referred to it but it was a whole lot.

They were very professional. They sent emails on a regular basis.

Then one day they added another option of their users. Members could pay $100 and receive some
additional benefits. I don't remember what those benefits were, I did not pay it.

Time went by. Members kept waiting for the actual send and receive money to be implemented.
It was all there, but not everything was functioning yet in regards to the 'money'.

One day it went POOF! Ok, say they up and ran off. Of course everyone was upset and everyone
was having a jaw dropping experience. I truly could not believe it. If anything was going to go POOF,
it would not have been that. At first everyone thought it was an error, they would be back...of course
they never came back.

Many months passed.

A year passed.

More months passed.

One day, I took a really good look at my bank statement.
Hmmmm I thought, what is this? I looked at some past bank statements....there again, hmmmm
what is this? I was seeing $49.95, $75.00, $120.00, and so on taken out of my bank account by
something with a funny name I could not even pronounce. I called my bank right away and they
told me to come into the bank so that they could research it, etc.

In the mean time, I went online and began to search that funny name. I found loads and loads
and loads of information. Turns out, it was that highly professional payment processor that had
been automatically withdrawing funds from gazillions of bank accounts....from the information we
so gladly handed them!

I never got my money back. I had to close my checking account. I of course reopened a new
checking account but it was all a big headache.

I learned a very good lesson that day, IF you are going to do business online, keep TWO checking
accounts. I have had two checking accounts ever since. I keep one for online biz only and that
is the only one I relay to the payment processors. If something happens, I close it, no big deal,
it does not interrupt my main checking account. I also transfer from that second checking account
on a very regular basis, to my main checking account. So my balance in the second checking
account, is almost always at a $0 balance. As soon as funds hit that second account, I transfer
it out.

With all that said, I think it was known as the 'Mazuma Scam'. I'll have to research it to see as
I don't remember.

Guide to analyze any PTC Site is scam or not :- » Post #5

Look at all the bux programs that had/have forums. Most of them are junk programs and some of them are in fact outright scams. But they most all have forums. And I am not saying all bux programs are junk, I want to be clear about that. There are a few solid bux programs out there. Some of the bux programs that are probably also some of the best, are the small ones with small member databases. For example, there is one that is owned by a ClixSense member and last I saw it, it had less than 300 members. However, I happen to know the owner and he is a good man. He is certainly going to pay his members. The flip side of those that are small yet legit, is the fact it probably takes a very long time to earn enough to cash out and make it worth someone's time to use it. And still yet, the flip side to that is, there are programs that begin small and may even stay small for years, then tend to boom almost over night.

I'm a member of a program that is a sleeper. I've mentioned it before. Unfortunately it is only for 3 countries. It's been online 5 years, has a nice database of members, but it's not large. Members earn nothing on referral clicks. But they do earn 1 full cent on their own clicks. I average between 40 to 60 cents per day, simply on my own clicking. It is a gpt program so members do earn on ref doing offers. What I am trying to relay is, there are very solid programs out there, ptc, gpt, etc, that are very legit, do pay out as stated, may not have a forum, may not be large, may basically be unknown to most the population.

Also, it is a good idea to do searches but I personally don't pay much attention to what people say. Many say anything to get you to enroll and the flip side to that is....many will say anything to not get you to enroll due to them not liking the industry or having a grudge against the owner or just to be talking out their butt. :lol:

Can't say as I agree with number three. There are many programs that don't have a forum and are legit.
ClixSense is a perfect example, they did not have a forum for almost 5 years.

No, they really are designed that way for a purpose and it really is to prevent carpal tunnel. It keeps your hand and wrist more aligned and rested.

Welcome aboard Heather! :P

About 5 years ago, the free to earn industry started to dramatically change, for the better.

Over 8 years ago, the free to earn industry was a rather poor market.

Today, it's very rich and very competitive.

Be careful with OKPay, I joined it some time ago and keeping an eye on it.
I have not entered any of my info into OKPay. Also I have read some bad info out there about it.

MoneyBookers, I've been a member for many years and I think one time I used it a thousand years ago. :lol:

MoneyBookers IS a trusted processor and I have never heard anyone having any problems with it.
It's just not utilized much by the big players.

But again, I will state, it's best to keep an eye on OKPay for now as I would not dare suggest them at
this stage.

Making Money with ClixSense Surveys » Post #75

Since I am not in the UK, I don't know how many they get. It all varies as there is no set number to how many surveys everyone gets. It's just based on companies just like advertising is based on how many advertisers want to advertise. :lol:

Making Money with ClixSense Surveys » Post #73

Tue Jan 03, 2012 10:17 in Success Stories

Ok listen... :P If you are in the USA, you probably will get the most surveys compared to other countries.
If you are in the UK, Canada....those two countries probably get some surveys too from time to time.
If you are outside of those countries such as UK, USA, Canada, it will probably be a bit more rare for you
to get a survey.

I am in the USA and I do get the surveys BUT it really varies as to how often I get them. Some days
I might get two or three or even more than that. Weeks may go by before I get another one. For me,
it seems they come over a two or three day period and then, nothing for some days or even a week or
more.

Just make sure you complete the profile as much as possible. Kick back and go about your business
as usual. When they do have a survey for you to do, you will get an email and you'll also see the
number 1 or whatever number they have for you to do, in your ClixSense member area display.

When you see there is a survey for you to do....run like the wind to do it. :lol:
Because companies only need a set quota and if you don't go quickly, it may have reached it's quota.

You can get carpal tunnel syndrome at any age. It's often found in workers that do repetitive tasks.
For example, say you are a factory worker that must pull a heavy lever 6 or 8 hours 5 days per wk.
It's highly probable that worker will get carpal tunnel syndrome in that arm or wrist. Today, it is
almost illegal to keep someone on the same machine in a factory and that is a big reason why.

I'm not so sure if people that play the piano would stand the risk of that, possibly. If you have
the correct posturing of your hands, wrists, fingers, then perhaps not.

Usually carpal tunnel syndrome will go away after some time, when you stop doing whatever you
were doing to cause it. It's not as bad as arthritis I don't suppose but it is a nagging ache that
can be much more than annoying. It can also take months to get rid of it even after you stop
what ever it was you were doing incorrectly.

That is why there is mouse pads with wrist humps, to rest the wrist to prevent carpal tunnel.

When I see people ethically working online to make a buck, I like that and I also think it's a good thing.

You ever watch the news and hear of someone breaking into a house or robbing a bank for a little money?
I think, what a dummy, you could have joined ClixSense and a host of other good free to earn programs
and built residual income....then you would not be sitting in jail for stealing a tv or robbing a bank for a
few grand in the cash drawer...dum dum. :lol:

I think some times we forget our history, our past, our cultures.

God has always been and always will be. There is no such as nothing because there has always been something.
A difficult thing for most to grasp.

As for it being the end of the world, it has been the end of the world since the beginning of the world.
People have worked to survive ever since Adam and Eve was tossed from the garden. Times are always
hard for the poor and the weary. It does not matter what time or point in history you live in, the poor
would tell you this if they could, that when they were poor in Roman times, it hurt just as much as the
poor hurts today and they would also tell you the end is near.

God says no one will know the hour or time of Christ return. No one.

If I had to guess, I would guess that Christ will return when the world is in the best economic state ever.
My guess would be, the world may not be in war with other countries. Things might be rather peaceful
and prosperous. That is how a thief in the night works....when you least expect it.

Of course, the bible also gives us some hints to watch for in the near end of times. Such as unexplained
events, destruction of our ecosystems, depletion of our natural resources, etc. So this obviously might be
some very good signs that allow us to know we are at the end of times...but does that tell us how long
we will experience these things before the end? I don't think so.

I suppose it might be the first time in history you have ever seen so many people trying to make money.
The reason might be because you are not thousands of years old. And/or it could be because you use the
internet and the internet is of course, young. It might even be because we have world news now, which
relays some of the happenings world wide. Still, I think if you take a closer look, you will see that people
have always been people and we have always strived to survive.
