Suspicious: Global Platinum Services - globalplatinumservices.com - Monte Jeremy

by Rudolf Faix 23. January 2017 04:13

Global Platinum Services (globalplatinumservices.com) hides their domain registration data behind a privacy protection service, but at the homepage gets shown one UK address and one US address. Such a behavior does not make any sense. It looks for everybody like they have something to hide and already that makes them very suspicious.

That is not the only alarm signal from a scam. Even their Facebook advertisement with the title "Travel Agent Wanted", shown on the right, shows more than one alarm signals for a plain and simple scam. There is written:

  • No travel Agent or Tourism experience Necessary
  • Full training - Sales, Marketing, Product ExclusiveMentorship Program
  • Low Start Up Costs
  • Personal website & Back office supplier
  • Access to DISCOUNTED Travel Deals

By reading the above points is it nothing else than an offer that you can use their training, web services and office service on your own risk and expenses. That is not an affiliate marketing offer, because you are taking all the work, commercial risks and expenses for the purpose than another one is able to earn. Anybody, who is interested, can open in such a case his own travel agency and trade with the offers from serious big tour operators.

The offer seems to be from a scammer based in India, who likes to hide his location. The reason for this assumption is the sign for the India Rupee (₹) in the for sale posting from Ms. Jade Burrell in the Facebook group to Business (Opportunity Dealer) - US. Jade Burrell does everything to invoke the impression that she is from the US. She is calling herself at her Facebook profile to be a CEO of Taker$ Ent., takersent.com, a domain registered to the provider Doodlebit LLC, 1712 Main St #254, Kansas City, MO 64108, US.

The domain globalplatinumservices.com, created on October 15, 2016, provides two addresses in the footer:

  • MB Holidays LTD 71-75 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London WC@H 9JQ United Kingdom Registered in UK Number 09851263
    By taking a look at the UK Company register, we find the following entries for the number 09851263:
    • Company name: XStream MB Holidays Ltd
    • Address: 71-75 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, United Kingdom, WC2H 9JQ.
      A search for the address in Google returns 18,023 companies at the same address. A complete list can get shown at Endole. As not one building can give enough place for 18,023 companies the address is from a post forwarding service and not a real office address.
    • Incorporation 2015-11-02
    • Statement of capital on 2015-11-02 GBP 1
    • Director: Monte Jeremy, Born: February 1974, Nationality: British, Country of residence: United States
    • Additional warning:

    Confirmation statement overdue

    First statement date 1 November 2016
    due by 15 November 2016

  • PC Platinum Travel, Inc. 7260 West Azure Drive Suite 141-568 Las Vegas, NV 89130
    Here are getting already some reviews found about this company:

The at the homepage provided "Florida registered seller of travel FLA ST36342" and "California registered seller of travel ID #CST 2076446-40" are the registration numbers from:

INTERNATIONAL VACATIONS INC
15400 KNOLL TRAIL DR STE 370, DALLAS, TX 75248-7079
Phone 214-239-2840
License Type License# Issued Expires Status
Seller of Travel ST36342 09/21/05   Exempt - ARC

Their understanding of a best price guarantee can get found at InternationalVacation.com Ripoff from TripAdvisor. At BehindMLM gets found an report with the title Phase 4 Global Review: A 4 matrix tall travel club too. In any case, International Vacations Inc. seems to be more interested in selling memberships to their pyramid system than travel packages. At the Internet are getting found around 600 sites offering memberships, but not one site is offering any travel package.

Global Platinum Services promotes their memberships with commissions up to 75% and on the other site a best price guarantee for their bookings. This contradicts each other, because the normal commission rates for travel agents are between 10% - 16% for package tours in this kind of industry. The average commission for airfare is only 1.36%. The travel industry is fighting over the price for their customers and for this reason all margins have been going down. An offer with with commissions of up to 75% is in this case not really serious. So the pyramid system has to get paid with membership fees and the real commission for the travel agent is in the best case less than 20%. Maybe you'll reach a commission of 75% if you are booking for someone a one night stay in a very cheap hotel and bill him a service fee. The average service fee is $38.

It even looks like that Global Platinum Services is only living from the membership fees. At other review sites are getting even cheaper membership fees mentioned than which are available than today. At the moment are only two offers as opportunity listed:

  1. Platinum Agent
    Setup Fee: $149.95
    Monthly Fee: $69.95 ($839.40/year)

  2. Platinum Plus Agent
    Setup Fee: $199.95
    Monthly Fee: $89.95 ($1,079.40/year)

This example shows, that it does not make any sense to use a privacy service for a domain, which should get used in business. It makes only the complete business suspicious. That someone needs to work and to pay for it, makes the system not more trustfully. Every pyramid system will break down as soon as not enough new victims entering the system can get found.

As it is useless to offer overpriced travel tour packages, because someone needs to pay the commissions for the affiliates and the tour operator likes to earn too, does it not make sense to promote any of this travel packages. For Global Platinum Services makes it more sense and it is more lucrative to sell memberships for their useless platform and use the travel industry for hiding their sham business.

Suspicious Sites

Investment scammer bankglory.com - Advance Finance Business LTD - Bankglory Business Limited

by Rudolf Faix 7. September 2016 06:12

Facebook scammer Sarah DeeIt is funny if one scammer calls other offers scam offers without naming them. With such a behavior they like to underline only the credibility of their own offers. For me are already such sentences like the Facebook scammer Sarah Dee has made, "The best and safest sit for invest" and "Don't waste your time for scam sites", already the first signs of plain scam. An investment broker needs to have a very good reputation and a perfect transparency of his company data if he is using such statements as Sarah Dee has done it at her offer. Not one investor will trust someone who is hiding his identity or using a fake profile.

A check of the promoted domain has resulted that the site has been 33 days old and has used a privacy protection service from Scottsdale, Arizona. The complete domain registration data can get found at the end of this article. That is already a fact what is speaking against a transparency of information from an investment company. This result I have posted as a comment on Facebook:

Additional makes it a lot of sense if a company uses a privacy protection service and write their address, "71-75 Shelton Street, London, UK WC2H 9JQ", on the website. Additional they are promising at their website unbelievable returns for investments. You should get 2% daily for 100 days if you are investing at least $20 or if you invest $50 for 30 days you'll shall get 5% daily. I hope that I don't need to mention that such a high return rate is nothing else than scam and shall lead you to forget about all risks and open your wallet immediately. Additional are they offering "At Bankglory we offer an incentive of total 5% commission on every investment you refer through your referral traffic. So the bigger investment you bring more money you will earn.". It shows only how urgently the scammer needs to get some money.

The scammer is so stupid that he offers investments in US$ and rules which are only in the U.S. valid by providing an UK address and ignoring the European Union completely. You can be sure that the provided address on the website is nothing else than a mail forwarding service. This fact gets confirmed by the UK companies house, because at the same address are 7,640 companies registered. If you are thinking now about a big building with many companies in it then you need to take a look at Google Streetview for getting enlightened.

Each company from the European Union needs to have according to the law an imprint at their website. At http://bankglory.com/index.php?a=rules we'll find the real name from the website, which got copied or used from the scammer. There is written: "Advance Finance Business LTD which operates Bankglory.biz". The domain bankglory.biz has existed, but got already shutdown. Now the scammer is using bankglory.com and calls his sham company Bankglory Business Limited. As shown before is the scammer very lazy and did not replace the company name at his rule site, so he has still forgotten registering his new company Bankglory Business Limited at the UK companies house.

The company Advance Finance Business LTD is still registered with the enormous capital of GBP 1 but does not have a director since March 2016:

UK Companies House company registration data of Advance Finance Business LTD:

Company number 09839391
Registered office address: 71-75 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, United Kingdom, WC2H 9JQ
Company status: Active
Company type: Private limited Company
Incorporated on: 23 October 2015

UK Companies House filing history of Advance Finance Business LTD:

Statement of capital on 2015-10-23: GBP 1

UK Companies House directors of Advance Finance Business LTD:

0 current officers / 2 resignations

BILL, Arlene Rose
Correspondence address: 71-75, Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, United Kingdom, WC2H 9JQ
Role: RESIGNED Director
Date of birth: October 1964
Appointed on: 23 October 2015
Resigned on: 8 November 2015
Nationality: British
Country of residence: United Kingdom
Occupation: Director

PITTARD, Christopher James
Correspondence address: 71-75, Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, United Kingdom, WC2H 9JQ
Role: RESIGNED Director
Date of birth: December 1969
Appointed on: 8 November 2015
Resigned on: 2 March 2016
Nationality: British
Country of residence: United Kingdom
Occupation: Director

It looks like the directors from Advance Finance Business LTD have an ejection seat. The first director got fired after 2 weeks and the second director got fired after 4 months. More plausible is that the scammer did not have enough money for paying the directors service. Since the begin of March 2016 the company is without a director. So who will pay you in this case if nobody is there who can sign your paycheck?

Scammer Charles Scoville - Trafficmonsoon likes to win only time now

by Rudolf Faix 28. January 2016 08:24

Each bank and each payment processor has a risk management department. Depending on the effectiveness of the risk management department the fees for their reinsurance is rising or falling. Don't forget you cannot buy money for a discount price.

As soon the behavior of an account differs too much from the standard behavior from the other accounts of the same kind (private accounts, merchant accounts, bank to bank accounts, etc.) the system gives an alarm and the account needs to get manual verified from the risk management department. If you are running a real business than such a verification is not really a problem. You explain your business, show the proves, that you are running a real and trustful business and you get immediately access to your account and funds again. Other is it if you are ignoring the call for documentation from the risk management of your bank. In this case your account will get suspended and you'll get not any access to your funds until you transmit the necessary documentation and your explanation get accepted from the bank or payment processor.

Additional are all your transaction getting scored in an internal scoring system. This scoring system is getting used for calculating your credit risk depending on the funds of the company, her behavior by doing transactions, the upcoming disputes and some other parameters. A good example for this scoring system is the spending limit from the credit cards.

As soon the risk management of one bank terminates your account you need even not try to open an account at another bank because your data are getting shared between the banks. At least in Europe is this the case. It does not make any difference if the risk are a few thousand Euros over the insurance limit from your scoring value or if you are trading in millions of Euros. As soon as you are customer with a high risk you can only use cash.

That Charles Scoville with his business called Trafficmonsoon is a very high risk can get shown in the screenshot below where Paypal has canceled his account. The important information is not the yellow marked part. The most important information is getting found in the first sentence where is written: "... the balance will be available 180 days after the information that no longer allows you to process payments ...". The reason for this limitation is that the dispute time is three months. Paypal does not like to take the risk to lose money if a dispute is arriving in the last minute. Click on the screenshot to enlarge it in the case you are not able to read it:

Paypal account termination notice

The above screenshot shows that the funds from Trafficmonsoon are not enough for Paypal for securing their transactions. For this reason the account from Charles Scoville - Trafficmonsoon got terminated.

Charles Scoville has even invented a new fairy tale for getting less disputes for the remaining funds at Paypal and for getting more money paid out after the end of the opposition period. He has published this new fairy tale at his blog on January 12, 2016:

Thank you for being a valued Traffic Monsoon member.
 
Video Message From Dubai:
 
As you already know from the video, I'm currently in Dubai. One reason for that is to setup an office in the World Trade Center Dubai. Part of this process is also setting up a bank here, and having an additional business registration here in the UAE.
 
We're transitioning from using PayPal to opening our own TM World Bank.
 
VIDEO: Processor Account Balances For Transition:
 
Our goal with opening our bank is to send you TM MasterCards for easier access to your earnings! We'll also have complete control over the funds received by the company for revenue sharing, without any worry about the payment processors taking control of funds.
 
This will also increase quality of our services and reduce risk of click cheating, because with the bank we'll need to verify "Know Your Customer" documents to ensure that each member getting paid is uniquely different from all other members.
 
What this means for you if you use PayPal:
 
For the next 30 days you'll be able to still make purchases with PayPal. We're unable to process withdrawals through PayPal because funds will begin moving into Payza and our own TM World bank account to support withdrawal requests.
 
We do recommend that you start using Payza for purchases for now until we get the TM World Bank completed.
 
If you used PayPal for withdrawals, you'll be able to gain access to your funds with Payza instead during this transition.
 
There will be a space provided for you to enter your payza email address and begin making withdrawals of your earnings through Payza.
 
If you don't have a Payza account, get signed up for FREE here:
 
We'll be moving funds from PayPal to Payza, then our own TM Worldwide Bank.
 
Until the bank is finished getting setup, if you wish to make larger purchases unable to be processed through Payza or SolidTrustPay, you're welcomed to wire the funds to the following bank details:
 
SWIFT CODE: CHASUS33
NAME OF BANK: JP Morgan Chase Bank
ADDRESS:
2610 S STATE ST
SALT LAKE CITY, UT 84115
BANK ROUTING: 124001545
ACCOUNT #: 734785868
 
Charles Scoville
My Address:
4927 Murray Blvd
Apt Z9
Murray, UT
84123

The problem on this story is that even a bank need to have accounts on other banks and at this accounts have to be funds. Charles Scoville does not have some funds and other available values. Would he have some funds than he would have shown it to Paypal and his account would not get terminated. A company, which is running into problems with a bank, would not say it in public for avoiding negative publicity. Such a company will use the available funds for securing their transactions. The same way nobody is able to open a bank anywhere on the world without having some money. You need to have money or properties for securing all of your transactions. There is no difference if you are a private person, a company or a bank.

With the rejection from the risk management department of Paypal Charles Scoville's data will get found at the secret high risk customer list which gets exchanged between the payment processors and banks. For this reason he will not get any new account at another bank or payment processor.

The offered payment method from Trafficmonsoon with Payza is very risky too, because Payza is already subject of investigations of the U.S. Department of Justice. There is written at https://www.justice.gov/usao-dc/victim-witness-assistance/obopay-payza:

Obopay/Payza

"The United States government, including Homeland Security Investigations and the Washington, D.C. Financial Crimes Task Force, is currently conducting a criminal investigation. As part of that investigation, the United States Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia has requested a United States District Judge to pause current civil litigation relating to Payza and Obopay. The Judge has paused the litigation until January 22, 2016. Shortly after that date, additional information will be made available on this website about the status of this investigation.

If you have questions or concerns about your Obopay or Payza account, please email USADC.OBOPAYZA@usdoj.gov or call 202-252-1903. Please include your name, email address, and contact information in your message. Someone will respond to your email or call within 3 business days.

Updated October 21, 2015

How much in need of money Charles Scoville is, gets shown in his blog posting, where he is even using for the Payza promotion his referral link https://secure.payza.com/?ZtQ4708%2f1zX1PKE5FlvQlA%3d%3d. By opening this link appears at the signup page "Referred By AdPageViews". The system from adpageviews.com collapsed last year between July and September. The Alexa statistics from adpageviews.com is showing this:

Alexa statistics from adpageviews.com

The same way will take now Trafficmonsoon. The referral program from Payza:

With our referral program, you can earn money by referring others to Payza. You will be paid $5 USD for the first 10 people you refer to Payza. After the tenth person, you will receive $10 USD for each referral. You will receive your reward money if your referral signs up for a Personal or Business account through your referral link and transacts at least $250 USD. When they fulfill these qualifications, you will be paid through your Payza account within 30 business days.

If you are comparing the system from Trafficmonsoon and AdPageViews with the system from AdSurfDaily than you will not find big differences. One fact about AdSurfDaily can get found:

Ad Surf Daily | USAO-DC | Department of Justice

www.justice.gov/usao-dc/victim-witness-assistance/ad-surf-daily

This website has been established by the United States Department of Justice to assist victims of the Ad Surf Daily Autosurf Ponzi schemes.

That Trafficmonsoon is nothing else than a Ponzi scheme gets shown by the fact that you have to buy AdPacks, click on it and shall get for a $50 AdPack $55 in return. The problem is only that not one advertiser is so stupid and buys advertisements from such a system. For this reason you'll find only the advertisements from the traffic exchange and from a few scammer in the system from Trafficmonsoon. How you'll get the additional $5 earnings in this case? These earnings are coming from new members. As soon not enough new members are buying AdPacks the system will collapse.

Think about it why Charles Scoville hides his identity at the domain registration for all his domains and is now publishing in his blog his address and his bank account? For the domain registration he needs to publish even less information as he has published now. Does such a behavior is making any sense? Maybe the state attorney is now happy because he needs one signature less from a judge for his investigations.

That even the scammers are not so stupid and invest into a collapsing system is getting shown at the screenshot from the Cash Links taken on December 6, 2015:

Screenshot Paying ads from December 6, 2015

Compare it with the screenshot from the Cash Links taken on January 27, 2016:

Screenshot paying ads January 27, 2015

For all this reasons shown above you can be sure that Charles Scoville with his Ponzi scheme Trafficmonsoon tries to win time for maximizing his own earnings. As less people are filing a dispute at their payment processor as more money Charles Scoville will get paid out. Trafficmonsoon will never return because the people will not trust again. All excuses and fairy tales Charles Scoville is publishing have the only purpose to win time and to reduce the amount of people filing a dispute.

Everybody, which has made a payment during the last two month and did get nothing in return, should file a dispute. These ones, which have reinvested all their money, have now lost their amounts.

Fraud & Scam

mysocialbutler.org: Offer, Promotion and Reality - How to Fail in Business

by Rudolf Faix 24. January 2016 08:51

Social Butler LogoYesterday I got a spam entry at my contact form from MySocialButler. I'm not an enemy of spam, but if I get an offer for something what I don't need, because I'm nowhere offering something except the free information about scammers, than I enjoy it to beat back by teasing the spammer.

Let us take first a look what Peter@socialb.com from http://mysocialbutler.org has entered into the contact form at my Fraud-Systems-Blog:

By reading the message above I like to know:

  • Why does he think that I need some help in social media marketing?

  • From which money he writes in the case of my blogs? I'm not offering or selling something. I'm running my blogs only for the one reason of not getting bored.

  • As he writes that MySocialButler is focused on Facebook, where did he find something on my site Fraud & Scam Systems - Blog about fraud and scam systems found at the Internet what can get offered or sold to Facebook members? Maybe I have overseen something or some information can get misinterpreted?

  • As MySocialButler is focused on Facebook, why does he not provide the Facebook address and why does not get MySocialButler found by an search on Facebook?

  • The worst sentence for any business owner and a big marketing fail is "We learn about your business and post content for you to your page that gets you new customers". The spammer and scammer likes to learn in a few days something about a business, where others need to learning years or their full life for it. It seems the scammer is overestimating his own possibilities.

Such an offer, like seen above, seems to be not only a spam. It seems that someone tries to scam hard working people. In any case is it already a big marketing fail. But the fail is even worse if we take a look at some background information which are getting easily provided by using some free tools found at the Internet.

Alexa, an Amazon company, is metering the traffic generated for the websites. Websites, which have a ranking under the 100,000 best visited websites have a plugin from Alexa where the traffic gets counted and sites ranking above 100,000 are estimated from the traffic of users, which are using the Alexa browser plugin and some other parameters. In any case gives the Alexa traffic ranking a good overview about the visitors for a domain.

If we take a look at the Alexa ranking from mysocialbutler.org than we see the very impressing message:

We don't have enough data to rank this website.

That means nobody is visiting the website from mysocialbutler.org. How someone can offer an Internet or social marketing service when he is not able to promote his own website? Who will so stupid in such a case and order some services from such a company like mysocialbutler.org?

How easy it is to generate traffic for a website can get shown by my own example. I'm the owner of the domain wwpa.eu too. I have been running on this site offers for my VoIP provider business in Austria. I have sold this business around 5 years ago. I only did not change the content of the site because I did not had any idea what I shall do with this domain. This behavior resulted in an Alexa ranking of over 1,000,000. Some people visited the site from the Google search results. The old content is until now available. On October 15, 2015 I got the idea that I still have a database of jokes in German language available and I decided to publish a few of these jokes in a blog with the address witze.wwpa.eu. Only this action boosted the Alexa ranking of the domain wwpa.eu to actually 684,151:

Alexa ranking of wwpa.eu

Additional is the ownership of the domain mysocialbutler.org hidden. The owner is using a privacy protection service to hide his registration data. That shows us that the offer is not coming from a serious company - it is coming from a private person, which likes to get rich quickly without doing something.

Each normal person, which is interested in any Internet or Social Marketing Solutions, would already put the message into the spam folder or simple delete it. But if we continue the investigations then we see that the fun is even coming better. The spammer has sent his message by providing an email address from the domain socialb.com.

If we open the website from socialb.com whe see the impressing offer that the domain is may be for sale:

Website socialb.com with the message; "This domain may be for sale"

Even the poor content of the website socialb.com has with 22,938,034 a better Alexa Traffic Rank than mysocialbutler.org:

Alexa ranking of socialb.com showing a ranking of 22,938,034

It seems to be that the owner of the site socialb.com failed already with the content of the site, because why else he would like to sell his domain? The formerly page title from the site socialb.com has been: Find Cash Advance, Debt Consolidation and more at Socialb.com. Get the best of Insurance

At least now 99.9% from the receivers of such a spam message, like Peter@socialb.com has sent out, would trash it without further investigations. This shows that marketing is a foreign word for the site owner from MySocialButler. Maybe he has heard somewhere that marketing is a business and tries now to make money with this information. But everybody can see what he can expect from such marketing skills as the site owner is even not able to promote and generate traffic for his own site. You'll pay for getting nothing in return!

Ok, the domain mysocialbutler.org is nothing else than a forwarding service for the domain mysocialbutler.net, but if we take a look at the Alexa traffic statistics from mysocialbutler.net than we see that even this website does not generate an impressing traffic:

Remember the values from my own German jokes site. The above values are calculated on the result of (Alexa - How engaged are visitors to mysocialbutler.net?):

If we take a look at the warnings from ScamAdviser about the site mysocialbutler.net than we see that the site is not really a serious one:

Summary: All what you can expect from MySocialButler is that you lose money for getting nothing in return. It can be that you get some copied content from other websites with all risks. You need to hope that the content is completely rewritten, otherwise you'll see how the major search engines will rank you down. For such a useless service you have to pay monthly $197, $297 or $995 depending on the count of social network sites and on the count of copied articles. If you are lucky you'll reach the same traffic ranking like MySocialButler where 62.5% of the user are escaping as soon as they have seen the first page and the remaining users are gone in average from your site after 1 minute and 48 seconds.

Update January 28, 2016: Today, I got the same message again by using my contact form. As I have been looking at their site I have seen the best promotion ever:

Something like that can happen too, if you like to use the services from mysocialbutler.net. In such a case you can start from the beginning again. The best recommendation is avoid such services coming from script kiddies and amateurs.

Update Jan. 18, 2017: Links to mysocialbutler.org and to socialb.com removed as the domains don't not exist anymore.

Suspicious Sites

Pay to Click (PTC) provider littlebux.com Tries a Commercial Suicide

by Rudolf Faix 18. January 2016 04:27

Littlebux Logolittlebux.com is a typical Pay To Cick (PTC) provider. Their domain got registered at September 19, 2014 - 1 year and 119 days ago. Until now they have tried not be a scam site, but now they are getting greedy by changing their payout structure. They are thinking that nothing can happen to them, because they are using a privacy protection service for their domain and no business address is written on their site.

Until now they had a payout between US$ 0.05 and US$ 0.06 per day for their free members. Free members got 4 daily advertisements with a payout of US$ 0.01 each and in average 15 advertisements with a payout of US$ 0.001 each. Paid members get a higher payout for their own clicks and for the clicks of their referrals.

Compared with other Paid to Click (PTC) providers have been littlebux.com on the lower end in their payment structure. An example from the sites, where I have received money as a free member are:

  1. US$ 0.20/day are in average paying the incompetent script kiddies from trafficmonsoon.com

  2. US$ 0.08/day in average is paying AdFiver.com

  3. US$ 0.05/day in average is paying clixsense.com, which is already 9 years at the market and do not hide their domain ownership behind an anonymizing service.

With the following posting has the admin (no real name available) announced at the littlebux forum the changes (reducing the payout by 33% for free members) for the free members on Sunday January 17, 2016:

Hi everybody!

I feel like it was yesterday that I was writing the first official topic for LittleBux. So much time has gone by (About 5 months actually) since then, and we're beginning to get a place in this industry as one of the leaders. We are nowhere near that, but we are getting there.

Since we started, we have paid out more than $100,000 to all of you wonderful users. I must admit, when I first started this project, I didn't imagine that we would have reached such an amazing milestone so early on. It's truly amazing to see how rapidly we've grown and how well the industry are treating us. During the next few weeks, we'll have some exciting news for you!

Standard Members Rates IMPORTANT
As of this moment, we have decided to lower the advertisement value for standard membersto $0.005 for the daily advertisements. (Previously $0.01). I know that this change will probably meet a lot of resistance from our standard members - however, it is only done in order to ensure the stability of LittleBux - not necessarily now, but more importantly - in the future.

This change will only affect standard members and only have an affect on the dailyadvertisements. Again, to be clear: your referrals earnings will not be affected by this change.

AdAlert
We've released our first AdAlert feature (which is currently only available for our and members).

Once a new advertisement is made available at LittleBux, you'll receive a text message, directly to your mobile phone with an alert! Simply go to your account settings, enable AdAlert, and enter your phone number.

We are currently working on an AdAlert feature for our Standard/Golden members as well.

What will the future bring?
We can't say for sure (if we could, we'd be in another business). One thing we can say though, is that it will not be dull. We have a lot of things planned for 2016, which includes a lot of new features that will help you manage your account and new ways of earning. More news about this very soon.

Upgrade Promotion SALE
We've kicked in 2016 with quite a bang. Almost 100,000 members in less than 6 months, and a total withdrawn sum of over $100,000. That has to be some of the best statistics for a new founded site. You are the reason for that.
That's why we are starting the year with an incredible discount on all our memberships - save up to $50:

Prices for new new upgrades and/or membership extensions:

One Year = $75

One Year = $285

One Year = $705

Click here to see our plans.

These promotions will be available until 18/01 15:00 (servertime)

Already the short time, which is the special offer for the paid memberships is available (less than one day) shows the scam and how needy Littlebux is. It seems that they cannot pay already the hosting fees.

The next problem is that even for the golden membership you'll need at least 13 referrals, which are staying and clicking a full year on the advertisements to earn the same amount like a free member. You are only making no loss in this case if Littlebux is not changing in their payout structure again. As they are trying already a commercial suicide by reducing the payout for the free members in the high of 33% (US$ 0.02) per day you have no guarantee for the future that they will repeat to try the suicide for the case they'll survive now.

If someone takes a look at the homepage from Littlebux.com than you'll see that they have actually 171,771 users and paid out the sum of US$ 105,625.02. If you think now that $105,625.02 is an impressing sum, you need only divide this sum by the amount of users to see that in average got each user paid US$ 0.6149. As their minimum payout is US$ 2.00 you'll can calculate that in average got less than 52,812 from the 171,771 users got paid until now! In this business are seldom some people so stupid and pay a high fee for a membership as they cannot be sure that the site will not change into a scam site like Littlebux now. I think that the paid members can get counted by using the fingers of one hand as Littlebux is only selling yearly memberships.

I have no pity for the stupid ones, which are paid members at Littlebux, and are now making a loss for the reason of losing their referrals. These are the guinea pigs from amateur businessmen and marketing deadbeats. The reason for such changes are mostly the greediness or the wish of getting rich quick from the site owners. Such a behavior like changes at the Littlebux site are in Europe forbidden by the consumer protection law. Maybe one European member brings them in front of the law court for the case Littlebux is surviving the commercial suicide. In any case I hope that a lot of users are now learning that they are not able to buy money for a discount price.

Update January 19, 2016: The new membership fees from Littlebux got published. The Golden: US$ 90/year, Ruby US$ 310/year, Ultimate US$ 755/year. You need now 16 referrals for the golden, 24 referrals for the ruby and 58 referrals for the ultimate membership, which are active on the site for one year, to get a few dollars more than a standard/free member. You know how hard it is to find some referrals and keep them active on the site. Additional you need to be sure that the terms and conditions will not change today or tomorrow again. You have no guarantees that such changes will not happen during the next day or weeks and for this reason I call the actual changes to be a "commercial suicide".

You should ask yourself the question: "How long will stay a standard/free member on the site if he sees that he needs between 50 and 67 days to reach the minimum payout sum of US$ 2.00?". All new members will start as a standard/free member. Only when they are reaching the necessary referrals they will take the risk to upgrade for a paid membership.

Update Jan. 18, 2017: Links for littlebux.com removed as the domain does not exist anymore.
