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

Trafficmonsoon: Revenue Share = Loss Participation?

by Rudolf Faix 19. January 2016 10:17

Last week I have sent a support request about missing cash links to the support from Trafficmonsoon. I got the answer that the cash links are ordered from their members and are getting distributed on a first come first serve principle. Maybe the support staff did not take a look at my logins. As I have nothing else to do I'm normally visiting each Pay To Click site three times a day. If there are at least not once a day some paid clicks available the site has normally some technical problems. Such technical problems had Trafficmonsoon already many times as their programmers are testing their changes on the production system and they don't have some systems for testing. Normally Trafficmonsoon had delivered after their technical problems more cash links for a few days for compensating the losses of their members. For this reason has been the answer from the support staff been surprising and Trafficmonsoon is during the last few days only delivering fractions of cents as daily earnings for their members.

Before a company is running into bankruptcy is the company trying to rescue themselves with all available possibilities. As more the company is running into troubles as more unbelievable is coming their promotion for winning new customers. In the case of Trafficmonsoon.com is it the same with the following screenshot of their promotion (click on the picture to see it full size if necessary):

The above screenshot has been taking from a landing page from trafficmonsoon.com (http://ptclandingpage.com/trafficmonsoon.html - link removed as domain does not exist anymore Jan. 18, 2017). It is not the page from a user of Trafficmonsoon because the referral link is missing. The page got advertised at Clixsense.

The disclaimer in the brackets near to the promoted earnings of $10.395 in a month, which says that "Results not typical. This proof of income is not a guarantee you would earn the same, but would be possible to earn this and more with equal or greater strategy and work ethic." is already confirming the misleading promotion and the scam.

If we take the FAQ from Trafficmonsoon, we'll find there as highest income example: "1000 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 30 days = $3,000 from your referral clicks". That means to reach a payout from $10,000 you need to have 3,333 referrals! I think everybody knows how difficult it is to find and to keep referrals in such systems.

The British statesman Sir Robert Walpole (1676-1745) has been the first Prime Minister in British history. From him is coming the proverb: "Every man has his price." Think now about it if such a company has 20 members which have 3,333 referrals each and each of this referrals would have in average 10 referrals and calculate the monthly payout for 3 level down:

Level Members Earnings from Referrals Own Earnings Sum
Top Level 20 $ 199,980 $ 60 $ 200,040
1. Referral Level 66,660 $ 1,999,800 $ 199,980 $ 2,199,780
2. Referral Level 666,600 $ 19,998,000 $ 1,999,800 $ 21,997,800
3. Referral Level 6,666,000   $ 19,998,000 $ 19,998,000
Total 7,399,280     $ 44,395,620

If we are honest with ourselves, who would not think about a way to disappear for less than 44 million dollars instead of paying it to the members?

In the above example are only the 20 Top level members earning $ 10,000/month. The members of the 1st and 2nd level are only earning $ 33/month and these one from the 3rd level only $ 3/month. Such a construction is very unstable and a lot of members would get lost in a short time.

To generate such earnings you need to find companies which are buying from you 7,399,280 * 10 advertisments per day * 30 days per month * (2,219,784,000 advertisements) for the paid advertisements and the same amount again for the unpaid advertisements which a user has to click for earning from his referrals (in sum 4,439,568,000 advertisements).

In the above payment model needs to get each of this advertisement to get paid with $ 0.02 for paying the clicker with $ 0.01 and his referral with $ 0.01 as the owner from Trafficmonsoon makes the job just for having fun. You'll find that information at their Ad Plans site:

Basically
$1.00 => 50 visitors = $0.02 per click. $0.01 goes to clicker, and $0.01 goes to sponsor
Visitor remains on your site 30 seconds

$1.00 => 25 visitors = $0.04 per click. $0.02 goes to clicker, and $0.02 goes to sponsor
Visitor remains on your site 60 seconds

To qualify for referral click earnings from these links, you must have clicked a minimum of 10 ads in the traffic exchange within the last 24 hours.

As Trafficmonsoon is not earning with the cash links, they are not interested to get some and for this reason is Trafficmonsoon the members cheating with cash links, which are expired just at the moment as the member has to enter the confirmation code after seeing the advertisement (click at the picture for full size):

Expired ad after showing it to the member

Such advertisements can get easily identified. They are appearing in the top left corner of the advertisement list and are mostly higher priced to lead members to click on them. If you don't click on them they are disappearing by themselves after 2 or 3 other clicked advertisements. You can avoid them by start clicking in the middle of the offered advertisement list or by starting to click at the lower right end of the list.

The behavior of this advertisements with the message "Sorry, ad expired" shall look like a programming failure, but is in reality the way how Trafficmonsoon is making money by scamming their users and financing their own expenses from the cash links. it does not make any sense for Trafficmonsoon to show their own site at the cash links because the user is already a member. The Alexa system cannot get impressed by it, because the user is already at the site and the advertisements are getting shown only in a frame. Such a paid advertisement gets shown in the following screenshot - frames inside a frame (click on the pic to enlarge):

Screenshot of showing frames inside a frame with error message

Another way Trafficmonsoon is making money with cash links is with wrong captchas. I have written already in the article "TrafficMonsoon - seems got programmed from absolutely beginners - even the captcha is not working correctly" about it. From time to time you get the error message "Wrong Click!" but you have really entered the captcha correct:

Screenshot of the error message "Wrong Click!"

If this happens to you, simple close the browser window, open a new one, go to https://trafficmonsoon.com/member/overview.php and watch the advertisement again. You'll get a new captcha, which is working.

At first I have been thinking that these are the errors from underpaid programmers or programming beginners, but as we can see has the madness a method and a reason - making money for the owner of Trafficmonsoon!

Trafficmonsoon has the opinion to watch their count-down bar is more important than to scroll down at the advertisement. This contradicts their sentence at their offer of paid clicks, where is written: "Cash links are a great way to show other members what else you're involved with, and invite them to join you.". In this case I remember only the following quotation: "Please forgive them, they are not knowing what they are doing.":

Screenshot that they are not knowing what they are doing

Another nice advertisement is the following one. I don't think that anyone pays to show an empty page and pays $0.02 for viewing it:

Screenshot from an empty website where I got $0.02 for viewing it

The owner from trafficmonsoon.com likes even to impress with false information. In the following screenshot he likes to impress with the huge amount of traffic they are receiving or generating. The problem is only that nobody shall believe this because if the webserver can show the content of this site then he would be able to show the real content too. Overloaded webserver are acting different by simple stopping sending some responses to the browser and not a sorry message like in the following screenshot shown:

Screenshot with the message "Our website has become overloaded with traffic."

Coming back to the calculation example from the beginning where we need around 4 billion advertisements viewed to reach the monthly income of $10,000 for 20 people each. Let us take a look where the traffic from Trafficmonsoon is getting generated. A view at the Alexa global ranking - Adience Geography tell us the following:

alexa.com Audience Geography for trafficmonsoon.com

We see in the screenshot above that the main traffic from Trafficmonsoon is coming from the "poor" countries Russia, India, Ukraine, Brazil, Mexiko, etc. Sure advertisement is getting done all over the world because companies like to sell their products. But are these companies from these countries spending between $ 0.02 and $ 0.04 per view? Like shown above is the generated traffic useless because members are even not allowed to scroll inside the page. The most viewers from the advertisements are only interested to get paid and not into the product. For this reason is Trafficmonsoon a closed system, which does not get accepted from the advertising industry. I see how one advertising company would tease the other one with the words: "You really need already to pay that someone is watching your advertisements?". Sorry, but here is it going about the reputation from the advertising and creative industry. Already for this reason you'll not find some real advertisements at the Pay To Click (PTC) websites.

You'll find only advertisements from the kind of getting quick rich at the Paid To Click (PTC) sites. Some users are hoping to find some people which are more stupid than themselves and are paying for a dream. These stupid ones are already less accessing the system from trafficmonsoon.com like it get shown in the Alexa global traffic statistics:

Alexa Traffic Ranks for trafficmonsoon.com

The above Alexa global ranking of the website trafficmonsoon.com shows us the flash in the pan from the rise and fall of Trafficmonsoon. During the last three months has Trafficmonsoon 194 places lost in the global ranking of the world wide websites.

If we take a look at the next screenshot where the question "How engaged are visitors to trafficmonsoon.com?" gets answered, than we see that the pageviews per visitor got reduced more than 52% during the last three months and the bounce rate increased with 4% in the same time:

Alexa - How engaged are visitors to trafficmonsoon.com?

The search traffic for Trafficmonsoon increased during the same time by 7%, but take a look which keywords are getting used to find trafficmonsoon.com. The search traffic is only coming from visitors, which are too lazy to enter the full web address for trafficmonsoon.com:

Alexa.com - Where do trafficmonsoon.com's visitiors com from? - Search traffic

As expected is the most of the traffic for trafficmonsoon.com coming from Google, Facebook and other Paid To Click (PTC) sites. That means a lot of people are getting paid at clixsense.com and neobux.com for viewing the advertisements from Trafficmonsoon:

alexa.com - Upstream sites for trafficmonsoon.com

As a lot of advertisements with fake screenshots of earnings are done for Trafficmonsoon in the social networks, I like to show my real earnings (not edited) from trafficmonsoon.com for daily clicking on their ads since a few months:

Trafficmonsoon earnings page for the work of a few months

Charles Scoville calls himself to be the CEO from Trafficmonsoon. If it is true or not cannot get verified because the site trafficmonsoon.com is registered with a hidden ownership. Which kind of person Charles Scoville is gets shown at his other domains with the names charlesscoville.net, charlesscoville.org and charlesscoville.com. In my opinion is he a man with an exaggerated craving. This gets shown already at the chosen domain names, where he likes to build up a brand by using his names. This would be difficult because he has been the owner of the following sites, which got already shutdown:

  • adscashfast.com
  • banrev.com
  • buxsecure.com
  • buxunleashed.com
  • eternalifebux.com
  • foreverbux.com
  • freehitxchange.com
  • inboxbux.com
  • infinitybux.com
  • powerfulbux.com
  • trophybux.com
  • tviptc.com
  • ulaunchformula.com
  • ultimatepowerboost.com
  • wealthenginex.com

Trafficmonsoon is a closed system, where the members of the system are generating useless traffic for each other. The system is nothing else than a Ponzi scheme which will break down as soon as not enough new members are joining it to pay the existing members. Trafficmonsoon promises 10% earnings in a short time for the investor and 10% earnings for the referrer of the investor.

Scammed victims from Trafficmonsoon are getting found at Google. Under these victims you can find Shoemoney with a loss of $125 too.

Other reviews about Trafficmonsoon can get found at:

At Facebook we find a page where 12 hours ago got written:

Still no news from that infamous PayPal meeting yet!
Why don't you phone them up Charles, like an enterprising lady called Jane who contacted Paypal in Australia directly.
Guess what they told her?
PAYPAL HAVE FROZEN TRAFFIC MONSOONS ACCOUNT.
Not exactly how Charles told it is it? Remember? He said he VOLUNTARILY LEFT THEM. Lies. Lies. Lies!
But don't take our word for it, PHONE PAYPAL yourselves!

Facebook postings need to get carefully interpreted. Especially if the author hides himself behind a pseudonym like in this case. For the case if it is true what is written there than Trafficmonsoon has already a big problem. Paypal does not freeze an account without reason.

 

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.

>>> Last update of WHOIS database: 2016-01-17T17:17:39-07:00 <<<

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.

 

easy-money-systemz.com declares themselves to be a scam and Ponzi scheme

by Rudolf Faix 28. November 2015 06:44

Easy Money Systemz LogoWith their email from November 27, 2015 are declaring the owner of the domain easy-money-systemz.com themselves to run a Ponzi sheme and to be scammer. As easy-money-systemz.com is not able to sell advertisings they try now to earn money with membership fees. I wish them in any case a happy bankruptcy party.

The fact is that they have changed their terms and conditions without a prior notice for every member. This is against the European Cosumer Protection Law. In such a case where a company is changing their terms and conditions they have to announce it within an acceptable timeframe and for the case that someone does not accept the changed term and condition they are allowed to terminate the contract with an compensation for the consumer if he loses something. In the case of easy-money-systemz.com would it be to pay the actual balance to the user. It even does not matter in such a case if the users are under the minimum payout or not. The consumer protection law does not make any difference between a paid and a free member from a site. As Easy Money Systemz (EMS) does not care about the law makes them already not trustworthy and shows that EMS is even no company. It seems that only script kiddies are running the site.

Let us take first a look at the changes which EMS has announced:

If you are taking a look at the above statements you'll get it easily that EMS (Earn Money Systems) shall only generate money for the owners. This fact would not be bad because everybody likes to earn money. The problem is only the way they have chosen with misleading promotion and the selling of memberships for giving nothing in return to their members. They even like to earn with their paid to click system from their members.

Advertising agencies are not taking advantage from Paid To Click (PTC) offers. For this reason the PTC providers are advertising themselves and other providers. This is a zero sum game in this kind of industry. For the advertising agencies is it important that users with interest on the product and with enough money to buy the product are clicking on their advertisements. Users which getting paid for watching their promotion have no interest in the product. Such PTC users are only watching the advertisement for the reason that they get paid and will not buy the product. This fact can get easily seen in the Alexa statistics by looking at the part from the countries where the visitors are coming to the site easy-money-systemz.com:

Alexa Visitor by Country statistics about easy-money-systemsz.com

The only country with a little better income situation listed above is Croatia. All other countries from the above list are called "low wage" countries. Not one member from all the listed countries will buy a product which he does not really need from an advertising over the Internet.

The fact that their visitors are coming from other PTC sites and from their stupid members, which are thinking that they can get rich by using their system gets shown if we take a look at the Alexa statistics "Upstream Sites":

Alexa Statistics Upstream Sites easy-money-systemz.com

The above statistics shows that at least 11.6% of senseless traffic is coming from other traffic exchange sites like neobux.com, trafficmonsoon.com and hqbux.com. Only 3% of their traffic is getting generated from the misleading promotion on Facebook from their members and from themselves. This fact shows only that the Facebook users are not so stupid as they are thinking.

From all of their traffic are 4% traffic from Google, but only 1.5% is traffic from the Google search. In the Alexa Search Traffic statistics get shown that even at least 29.14% from the search traffic gets generated from bots. Or does someone believe that one user is searching for "ems ptc", "easy money systemz" or their website name?

Alexa statistics Search traffic for easy-money-systemz.com

As not one advertising agency or any real company is advertising at their site are they not able to trade with regular advertisings. They are only exchanging in exchange some other PTC (Paid To Click) sites. This is a zero sum game and does not generate an income for the owner of the site. The only income for them is the membership fees, rented referrals, bought referrals and maybe some other scam offers.

I have been a free member from November 2 until November 27 because I liked to try such offers and report afterwards about it. I'm not investing any money in such systems. I'm only testing the free membership and not more in such a case. During my membership time EMS has even reduced the highest Paid To Click rate from $0.01 to $0.007. During these 26 days I have been able to collect a sum of $1.8490 (nearly one dollar and ninety cents). More has been not possible because there did not got more advertisements got shown. If we calculate it for 30 days then the possible earnings for 30 days are around $2.10.

With the changes of their terms and conditions you'll make in any case a loss as a free member because you need to buy a membership for at least $2.75 for 30 days that you can get paid. Remember the sentence "FREE-you will need to upgrade to BRONZE to make your first withdrawal from EMS" from their email. As you get only 5% from your direct referrals earnings you'll need at least 8 referrals for working for free for Easy Money Systemz. You are even not able to use your earnings for buying the membership, to rent or to buy referrals. That makes the complete system not trustworthy and to a scam. As they are not able to earn something by selling advertisements are they in need of money for paying earlier investors, which got cought by dream ROI and earning rates. This is called to be a Ponzi scheme.

As scammer are too lazy to use their brain this scammer is even promoting his statistics:

Easy Money Systemz statistics

I think that his members are not really happy as show in the following calculation:

$16,448.34 paid money divided by 60,574 unhappy members gives in average a payout of $0.27 per user since one years the domain is active. There can get nothing found which can make members happy!

I replied to their change in the rules and conditions like seen below:

Rudolf Faix <rudolffaix@gmail.com> Fri, Nov 27, 2015 at 12:35 PM
To: Easy Money Systemz Admin <system-admin@easy-money-systemz.com>
Thanks that you are declaring yourself as a Ponzi scheme and a scam site: "FREE-you will need to upgrade to BRONZE to make your first withdrawal from EMS"
 
Bottom line: If there is a fee, it is a SCAM

The only response I got is shown at the following screenshot:

For the case someone has been so stupid and invested in this scam system he should stop as soon as possibe and shall try to get his money back.

Such a good service needs to hide their domain ownership by a Identity Protection service. The overwhelming users can kill the domainowner and for this he needs to hide himself in anonymity:

Scammer: 0daybux.com - Matteo Melandri - contradicts himself

by Rudolf Faix 27. October 2015 07:11

Alexa global ranking of 0daybux.comThe scammer Matteo Melandri invests a lot into the Clixsense program to show some traffic to his scammer site 0daybux.com. It seems that he believes that members of paid to click programs are so stupid and believe into his unbelievable promotions.

The only purpose of paid to click sites is only to get traffic for showing at the Alexa global ranking and similar sites that the site gets visited and is not a big secret in the world wide web. The result of such a paid to click program gets shown on the screen shot at the right site. To see the full details simple visit the Alexa site.

The offer is for free members:

Earn 0.10€ per click
Earn 0.05€ per referral's click
Instant payout
0€ to cashout
Many advertisement
And much more...

For paid members is it even more unbelievable:

Earn 0.25€ per click
Earn 0.20€ per referral's click
Instant payout
0€ to cashout
Many advertisement
And much more...

Normally is a payout for visting sites between US$ 0.001 and US$ 0.01. Not one advertising company will pay at least € 0.45 per visitor (earnings for paid members € 0.25 + € 0.20 for the upline). That is a dream of the paid to click providers, but it will never come true. If you take a look inside the program of Clixsense or Trafficmonsoon then you see that there is not one real company advertising their products. They are promoting themselves and each others with the paid clicks.

Anyway, the contradiction from the scammer 0daybux.com - Matteo Melandri gets already found at the homepage of 0daybux.com. It seems that the words "0€ to cashout" are the reality from the offer if we take a look at the homepage and the FAQ's.

At www.0daybux.com/pages/clickads is written that you don't get paid as a free member if you are not upgrading your membership:

How I get instant cash?
For cashout the earnings please upgrade your account. Ascertain that your earnings € are more than the upgrade price. For example if you earned 20€ you can upgrade your account to Ultimate membership so you're sure that you can receive the money for upgrade instantly after the purchase.

With other words is the promotion "0€ to cashout" for free members true. They are getting exactly € 0.00 for clicking on the advertisements. The only problem is that the paid members have the same description in the offer. So they are getting nothing too. For what should someone upgrade in this case? Only for supporting a scammer? As you don't get something for it makes a free membership or a paid membership not any sense,

We'll find some more contradictions at the FAQ page http://www.0daybux.com/pages/contact - link removed as it already returns error 404 - not found Jan. 18, 2017):

What is the minimum payout?
Zero. Payout is instantly and you can request it when you want.

Click at least 50 advertisement (for free members)
Become a upgraded member or add funds

Here already we see that free members don't get paid and the promotion is nothing else than a bad joke. As we see in the next point of the facts is there no way that free members are getting paid. So free members have only the possibility to work for nothing. That is nothing else than a big deception. Probably the scammer is hoping that someone still pays for him for the fraud!

Why my payout request is refused?
If you receive this error: "Based on your membership and investment(s), the payout maximum for your account is €0.00." is because you don't have upgraded membership or added funds. Please upgrade your account or add funds for request the first cashout.

In the sentence above is already the payout maximum declared as € 0.00! As the site is hosted in the Netherlands and registered in Italy and both countries are members of the European Union is the site already breaking the consumer protection law of the European Union because the free membership is already a misleading offer.

With other words the "free members" have no minimum payout but a maximum payout of ZERO Euro.

The next point in the FAQ's shows the plain scam. You have to buy your work. Even this point is against the European consumer protection law because you have to pay first for getting your earnings:

Can I upgrade my account or add funds with Account Balance?
Is not possible upgrade your account or add funds with Account balance for now. You can use PayPal, EgoPay, OKPay and Bitcoin.

Sure, in a scam you cannot upgrade your membership with the funds of your account. In this case the scammer would not get some money!

One point of the European Data protection law is that the consumer has the right to get his data deleted as soon as he requests it. It does not make any difference if the consumer is a free or a paid member of a service. The provider of the service has to delete the data and to confirm the deletion of the data on the request of the consumer.

Can I delete my account?
Only upgraded members can delete their account. Upgrade your account and contact the support if you want to delete it.

My opinion about the site 0daybux.com is that Matteo Melandri likes to build up a legal scamming site. The problem is only that this is not possible without breaking the consumer protection law.
