The Truth about Paid to Click (PTC) by the example of ultimateclix.com and ultimateclixx.com

by Rudolf Faix 12. November 2015 07:42

We'll find already the first lie of ultimateclix.com in the caption of their homepage, where is written "No Limits for your earnings". As scammers are even too lazy to think gets the lie found already in the caption from the page ultimateclix.com and ultimateclixx.com. There is written "SINCE FEBRUARY 2014 ... WE HAVE PAID $271 060.46 TO OUR 163 161 REGISTERED MEMBERS". While $271,060.46 seems to be an impressing sum, we need to take a detailed look at it. The sum of $271,060.45 got paid to 163,161 registered members and $271,060.45 divided by 163,161 results in an average payment of $1.6613 (one dollar and 66 cents) for each member for the time of 21 months. That means each member earned the impressing sum of around $0.0791 (nearly eight cents) each month! This proves that the scammers are even too lazy to use their own brain during setting up their own website.

That scammers are lazy gets shown on the error message in the above screenshot. In this case they have been too lazy to test their program and removing the errors. If they would have made the program not quick and dirty, the error message "Warning: Illegal string offset 'active' in /home/ultimateclixx/public_html/Sources/ads_new.php on line 0". like in the screenshot above, would not appear. PHP scripts are running at the server site and have nothing to do with the kind of the browser.

The next lie gets found in their membership table:

In the above screenshot we find offers like in every other PTC (Paid To Click) site with $0.005 and $0.01 advertisements for free members. In reality is this not really valid because the "View Advertisments" page shows other values:

Screenshot ultimateclix.com - fixed advertisements

The above screenshot shows that you'll get only for the first three advertisements $0.001 and the other eleven are getting with the half or less. The tariff of the others is even not listed in the membership table. Worse is it with the ultimatexlixx ads shown in the next screenshot - there you are earning only $0.001 instead of $0.01, which is 1/10 of the promised payment of the membership table - what confirms already the scam:

Screenshot ultimateclix.com - ultimateclixx ads

Everybody is guilty by himself if he is clicking on the "Nano Ads" and the "Sponsor Ads". They are even not worth to read the offer because od their payment values from $0.00001 (= $1.0E-5 in the Sponsor Ads) until $0.00025. Think how many ads you need to click until you'll get one cent for them! You'll pay more for the electricity than you are earning for the advertisements.

The "Extra ways to earn more" are nothing else than a lottery game or free trials where you have to provide some payment processors or credit cards:

Other PTC (Paid To Click) sites are offering around $0.05 earnings per day. If you are adding all together then you'll see that ultimateclix.com is offering only $0.0125 per day. Think about it before signing up, how long you need to daily visit the site until you'll reach the $4/$5 minimum payout. For the minimum payout of $5 you'll need to work 400 days until you'll get a payment!!! As the promised payout for paid members is only the double value from the free membership you can be sure, that you have to work at least more than 200 days for them get your membership fee back! For this reason only stupid people are paying a membership fee for any Paid To Click (PTC) site!!!

As the following screenshot is showing should have users from PTC (Paid To Click) sites a good protection for their browser. Paid to Click provider are offering advertisements without checking them for some viruses and malware. The error message "This site uses a plugin () that is unsupported" shows a code, which shall get executed at the users computer. I did not make any research if this error message is coming from ultimateclix.com or from their client.

Summary: Don't trust any promotion done somewhere. Use your own brain and make your own decision if you don't like to support a scammer. You'll see it on the example of ultimateclix.com that the cheapest membership fee is $30/year and you can earn in the best case $1 during this time. Rememeber the average payment for each member since "February 2014" is $1.66 for all the 21 months until now! Only stupid people are paying $30 for a work which pays only around $1 during the same time!

Don't forget that business people, which are lying already in their promotion ("free membership"), are lying more for money. The "Free Membership" is normally the promotion for the paid membership. With other words shows the site already their true face in the "Free Membership", so I really don't like to know what will happen if I sign up for a paid membership!!!
