Re: How do the Scam Sites make money?

I have a bad experience of working on couple of scam sites. I hate more the ones that turn out into scam sites after paying the users in the beginning and when the paid members invite more members to join and see that the sites have stopped paying. That's really embarrassing situation.

A good way is getting tons of money from advertisers and never pay their users. The set high mininum cashout, so that they have enough time to bail when the chips are down. Evil minded beings.

that's very true. So that before people could reach the minimum threshold, they could have strategized their plan of scamming.

I think they make money from Advertisers and from members when they upgrade and when they realise that they have enough, they scam.

Especially with forums, they get traffic from members who are posting with the idea to earn. The ads will be coming in with the big traffic and the site becomes a scam if it doesn't pay the members.

Most of the time they just trick people into giving them money. That is how the online scams usually work. But I never fall for people who promise lots of money for a small investment.

Yes make money from advertisers but don't pay the users. But that does not make scam but it makes them cheat. Cheat and scam is different.

There are many ways for them to earn.
It's not good to discuss those things publicly. If I reveal those hidden secrets, then many scammers will originate.

I've still got a couple of autosurfs going, because you never know, but yeah...
I mean, it's a viable business for a while if they did the maths correctly, but i think most of them don't work out the profit/loss scales and that's why they end up having to close down.

That will discourage lots of people from being active on such sites because one will spend to upgrade.

So have you been paid by these couple of Autosurfs that you are currently running? I think even if they don't pay, you can use the credits to promote your own referral links.
