Internet Users Hbk - Chapter 7. The $1,000,000 per day PTC/PTR Scam
Free PDF Download|
I Read Your Ebook, and it Gave Me A Headache! - By Dr Don Yates Sr PhD
It is hard for me to get excited about someone that posts a check for $ 5.00 (as proof of payment) and he or she is happy. How much work did they have to put into to get that $ 5.00; did it pay for his internet connection, his electricity, computer, etc. This section is another look at todays’ big money PTC/PTR sites, and the scams they represent...
I cannot emphasis the importance of this chapter, as I find too many new users (newbies), are being taken by the promise of big earnings $1 -20,000 per email that will never be taken to the bank
After years of various successful businesses, consulting and coaching, etc., I finally retired. I got tired of the local politics and current business gamesmanship. Moreover, I am a foreigner in someone else’s land; I do not need to take consultation fees when locals claim to be able to do the same job and work cheaper. .
I had been using the internet for research, financial data/quotes, email, etc. for years in my various businesses. Therefore, I decided to try the net for some productive, paying programs. I believe I already told you that I did not play golf.
Having been used to working 12-16 hours days, I needed something to keep me my brain active. After some time of learning and losing at various other interest business opportunities as discussed before, I took another look at the PTC/PTR community.
As I said, the low paying sites are still available, but it seems the real way to make any money here is to build a downline, like most online programs. In as much as I had not built a downline for any other program that paid more than these sites. I passed, but then I began finding new PTC/PTR programs that paid, unbelievable, think of it: $20,000 per email?
Wow, how can this be true? It is not possible - I told the wife, maybe this is a new money laundering Scheme. It did not make any sense to us, nor should it to you. However, do read on!
Real or not, I decided to check out these new sites, joining one lead to joining another, etc. Before I knew it I had several sites promising ridiculous amounts of money per day.

Membership has nearly tripled since I joined this site. Note the claimed payouts of over 62 Trillion, and all this with only 2300 emails and 30 banner ads. Payouts of 62,093,832,222.00 divided by 7,608 members’ give an average payout to each member of $816,000.
Not bad it if were true. But it is not, the payout number increases with each request for payment, but no money changes hands, only the tot board changes. Of course, this is not real, but seeing the numbers get so high, it became a game, a diversion, and sort-of addictive (how high can I go). As you will see, this site and others became a part of my Welcome to My USD 1M or More per Day Strategy.
On paper, I was making money with this site, lots of it at a time when I was getting nothing from my other sites or advertising efforts. I accumulated a downline of 58 members. Clearly, this was a winner, by all measures, except that “No Payments” were received.
Even with my mentality that if you owe me a million, then 1% or $10,000 would be great, since although I would have like to have received something, but didn’t really need the money.
However, I have learned that scammers don’t give up a dime. There is none of this take a little bit now and I will send the balance later stuff.
You have no contact with your downline, only the name and a $2,000 bonus tally. For that matter, the downline could be random generation of name to fill a list to keep you in the game. Since most of these scammers, as I have learned, own several sites, the same downline name probably shows more than one site.
The home page says payment will be made via different payment gateways. However, PayPal is now missing from the home page. A new name “Liberty Reserve” is shown. Liberty Reserve came on strong and became the primary gateway for several other sites and No PayPal. Liberty Reserve is of interest because if you read the Forex Section of this Handbook, you will find the name Liberty Reserve on the list as a Forex Scammer (whether or not they are 1 and the same, I have no idea). This one is a payment gateway and that one is a Forex site – since they both deal with money – in all likelihood they are related.

During my time with this project, I noted that most of the ads and emails were self-promoting or cross promoting between similar sites, probably from the same owner. So where is the revenue?
Affiliates will be paid via PayPal / eGold. pcash.info will pay affiliates when their balance reaches the minimum payout rate set by pcash.info. Once the member has reached payout they may request payment. Payments will be made within 30 days or a reasonable time after.
Clearly PCash.info and other sites are offering a “Cash Payment Redemption” link which will pay you with “x” dollars within “x” hours or days, but forget what the Home Page says. Read the fine print from the “Terms” which reveals something different.
Under the terms Payments will be made within 30 days or a reasonable time after. Don’t confuse the “Earnings” with Cash Payments. Pcash.info, unlike some other sites, does tell you that you will earn a percentage of revenue, not full cash value.
But, as you will see when you do your Due Diligence; nobody will get anything if their daily revenue is only $4.00
Most of these sites seem to confuse the word “redemption” with a cash payout. Using some of your cash value to place an ad will usually be redeemed within 24-48 hours.
Once an upgrade and a payment request has been made, let’s say for a 48 hour redemption, many sites then report that your payment will be made within the redemption period once your account is 30, 60 or 90 days old; and not the immediate 48 hours that you thought that you had upgraded for.
If you read the Home page, Terms, Upgrade and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS), you will typically find many inconsistencies between them. For example, the front page does not mention PayPal anymore, but when you complete the user profile; the only payment methods are PayPal and E-Gold.
Most of these PTR/PTC sites use only PayPal and E-Gold, but it appears that many are now switching to Liberty Reserve. If you contact them online, you will not get a reply, and if you contact them by email, you will not get a reply.
You have directly earned:
You have earned from your Downline:
Your account balance after all transactions:
Your message has been sent. We will contact you soon.
No messages regarding the payment request were ever received, and its seems that as soon as you request a payment, the “Payouts” Increase, even though no money has actually changed hands. So is any of this realistic – Of course not, but watching your earnings increase and increase by $20,000 can be addictive, especially, if you have not seen earnings on other programs.

With this information, it is easy to see, that pcash.info claims to have paid out 62 trillion when it has an estimated value of less than $3,000. Ad revenue is estimated at less than $4.00 per day. How to pay you $20,000 per ad?
Obviously when armed with the facts, this is a no-brainer – Scam, Pass
This is just one example of over 200 sites evaluated.
I was able to achieve the $ 1,000, 000 per day target in about 6 months. It could have been faster, but all programs must be accessed (whether high dollar or lesser dollars) at least once a month, or a week as I did. Like reading email sites, some have a high volume some much lower.
Most of the ads are self-promoting or promoting within their groups of sites, so PTC/PTR advertising PTC/PTR – where is the real money from outside advertisers?
Memberships are typically low less than 10,000 as compared to the number of user online looking for business opportunities. Perhaps that means that the majority is smarter than me, and simply avoids the sites.
Almost nothing, you read should be believed. The information is usually inconsistent between the pages: home, FAQ, upgrades, etc.
Upgrades ranges from about $10 - $500 depending on the site.
If you upgrade and expect payouts within a certain period of time as specified in the upgrade page; often the site redemption page will be revised to say your payout will made to you after your account is 30-90 days old. When that period is reaches the “Cashout” tab never comes. Online contact and emails are never replied to unless they just want your money.
I did get a reply form one company that when I advised them that I wanted to upgrade, but that I have found their name on a Scam List; they came back and said they were not a scam and that they pay according to the terms of their site. Often your site; will never be upgraded even though you have already paid for an upgrade; once again, contact and emails will not be answered.
Site offering computers, cameras, etc. are Scams and never send the merchandize.
Sites offer 100% refund or guaranties if the site is not upgraded within a certain period are Scams. Most sites can be upgraded in minutes once the payment is accepted, if you think about it.
Some sites, when a payment request is made; will respond back to you that they have changed their system, and that if you fund an additional fee called a trade fee of .1 to 1 percent they will send your money immediately. That is another Scam.
If you pay for an upgrade, keep your receipts and other details, in order to claim or file a dispute with the payment gateway: PayPal, Alert Pay, etc. I believe this is why many sites can no longer do business with PayPal because of the complaints.
Sites that monitors these types of sites, will advise you that any site that offers you more than $1.00 to read and email is a scam. I would change that and say forget any site that offers you more than $0.50 cents. These same reporting sites also advise that if the sites don’t offer you a Forum to communicate with them is probably a Scam.
I would change to that because even if they have a Forum, they may not allow you to entry a reply or complaint as discussed elsewhere herein. Another group of Scam sites that I had offered Live Messenger, but you couldn’t access it. I guess the owner wanted his sites to look more legitimate.
These same sites also changed the contract them categories to include a category for non-payment; however, no replies have ever been received by me for such requests
It should be obvious that businesses cannot payout more than they take in advertising revenue and still be considered a going concern or a business
Advertising businesses cannot afford to give away computers, cameras and other such items, signup bonuses and such if the advertising revenue is not there.
Take your own perspective, how much are you willing pay others to read your advertisements?
Good rule of thumb, sites that might actually pay will pay less than $.50 per click or read.
I was a good candidate because I do not mind admitting and learning from my mistakes and for others to learn. For that Matter – I Enjoyed the Game and had the time to play it
If I had simple done my own Due Diligence, I would not have had a reason to form the Internet Scams Anonymous (ISA) Groups or write this Internet Users Handbook
