In my previous post, I talked about PaidOffers.org not running anymore, and I mentioned that this blog was created not only to talk about what works for making money online free, but also what doesn’t! I always say that people should do their research before signing up with any company, and in fact I created this blog so that I could help in the research by narrowing down the real sites from the fake ones!
Now am I stating that PaidOffers.org was a scam? Off course not. His wife had a stroke and that’s totally understandable.
However, while doing my research, I’ve read quite a few interesting things about a couple of popular people in the GPT industry.
Are you a member of a site that’s listed as being a scam site or put on a watch list? Here’s how you can find out.
Visit GPT Boycott which is a site that “aims to name the offending ‘get-paid’ companies, and to urge their visitors to stop using them!” They acknowledge the fact that there are many sites that look to take advantage of their members by acting dishonestly, improperly or fraudulently and stealing their time and money.
On GPT Boycott you can find lists of sites that have been closed down in the past, and other existing ones that members have reported not being paid, etc, so you can avoid these scam sites! You can even submit a compliant to have them check out a site that you’re having problems with.
There is also a GPT Boycott Forum where you can interact with other GPT members and even some of the owners themselves! You can really learn a lot about the whole GPT business and how it works. It can help in your making money online experience greatly!
I recently saw a few threads on this forum discussing a certain Kim Ballard in the GPT industry. Apparently, she is popular for buying a bunch of sites, having users spend their time filling out offers or clicking ads and then just reselling or shutting down the site with no notice and refusing to pay members what they are owed. It didn’t just happen one time either, she then goes out and buy a bunch of new sites and do the same thing. People like this is who you need to watch out for in the GPT industry, so you don’t get scammed. Even though you are spending nothing out of your own money to join these sites, you are still being scammed out of your time, because you are working and not getting paid!
You can do a search on the forum for her name if you want more info on some of the sites she own/owned, so you can be aware of them.
