Big Money PTC – A scam? See proof UPDATED!
IS THIS IS A SCAM? WE ARE ABOUT TO FIND OUT!
We are about to find out once and for all if a very highly paid, “paid to click” site named “Big Money PTC” is actually a scam or if they are genuine. If this is in fact a scam, then it’s very questionable how many more similar highly paid sites are also scams. The site was launched on May 16th, 2009 and at the time of writing on the 9th June, 2009 has 12,942 members and rising rapidly according to their homepage which is very impressive unless this is doctored.
Big Money PTC claim to pay a massive $1 per Ad clicked and $10 per sign up, also paying 50% of down line earnings as a free member and even more as a golden member. When you reach over the payout threshold of $1000, they are supposed to pay on request by either Paypal or Alertpay.
Well my friend has reached over $1000 on the 9th June 2009 and has formally requested payment. We will now see if it’s a scam once and for all, no more speculation, but ACTUAL FACT! I very strongly suspect it is a scam as paying $1 a click is just ridiculously too high when known genuine sites only pay a maximum of $0.02 per click and some pay much less. It will be very interesting to see what happens now as “Big Money PTC” already have 13 people listed in the payment proof section at the time of writing which I also suspect is fake as the site was launched on the 16th May, 2009 and it’s only June 9th, 2009 at the time of writing which has only been 17 business days when it apparently takes 60 business for payment to be processed, unless they are paying out much quicker than promised which I somehow doubt. Well the $1001.20 has been removed from my friend’s balance and is listed under “Pending Withdrawal Requests”, we will now have to wait and see what happens next with close interest. Incidentally, my friend got to $1001.20 as a free member by clicking on Ads every day, but he’s managed to get 44 referrals who did most of the work.
I have read in the terms and conditions of Big Money PTC and it does clearly state that it takes 60 business days (which is about 12 weeks) for payment which I suspect buys them plenty of time to send out excuses while earning maximum profits from people wasting their time reading Ads for nothing as well as perhaps paying for golden membership or even paid referrals. When things get hot when too many members are complaining about late payments and new membership start dwindling due to bad publicity and saturation, they will probably disappear altogether to start another sister site to scam people all over again. What’s even more worrying is the following in the terms and conditions, “All earnings listed and/or represented by Bigmoneyptc.com are estimated value(s), actual value(s) subject to change with or without notice”. Well surely this means they could say that $1000 is an estimated amount and sorry, but we are only paying $1 as that’s what it’s really worth? They also say that they can change the terms and conditions at any time, which means they can effectively do anything they want to.
We will now see if I’m correct and if they are in fact a scam site, I will also say sorry if I’m wrong too and will be very surprised if this is the case. If I’m right and it is a scam, please don’t waste your time or money on paid memberships as I don’t lie, we will have wasted our time on this pay to click site so you don’t have to.
FINAL CONCLUSION (Updated 12/04/10):
PROVEN SCAM – NO PAYMENT SINCE REQUESTING ON THE 9TH JUNE 2009 AND IGNORING ALL CONTACT! REQUESTED 6 MORE PAYOUTS SINCE TOTALLING $7895 AND NOT RECEIVED 1 SINGLE CENT! (See 100% SCAM PROOF BELOW!)
MY ADVICE: There are literally hundreds of scam “paid to click” and “get paid to” sites saturating the Internet today including BigMoneyPTC and RichPTC. Please see http://www.genuine-ptcs.com/ for a list of some of the better genuine sites, but remember that genuine PTC sites usually only pay a maximum of 2 Cent per click, but most pay even less. Nevertheless, it’s always much better to get paid a small amount for a lot of work than to get promised $1000+ that is never paid on a scam site.
100% SCAM PROOF:
(The above image shows a total of 6 pending payments, the 1st payment is extremely overdue and still NOT paid! Please note that the Paypal email account information has been covered over for security reasons, but apart from this, it’s unchanged.)
UPDATED: 12/04/2010 – EVEN MORE 100% SCAM PROOF:
(The above image was taken on the 12/04/07 and shows a total of 7 pending payments that haven’t been paid, the 1st payment was requested on the 9th June 2010 which is over 10 months ago at the time of writing! BigMoneyPTC was actively used every day since the 1st payment request for a number of months as BigMoneyPTC later sent out emails to members with a pathetic excuse explaining that redundant accounts won’t be paid so rewarding active members first, this was to get inactive users to re-use BigMoneyPTC so they can rip them off even more. BigMoneyPTC continue to ignore all correspondence and they continue to take money for paid Ads and memberships. Please note that the Paypal email account information has been covered over above for security reasons, but apart from this, it’s unchanged. Notice that they claim to have paid $309,139.38 which is ridiculous as no-one has ever come forward as being paid a single Cent!)
Please see my comments below for updates over 4 months that finally drew me to this certain and final conclusion.

This article and any comments are without prejudice to Big Money PTC, RichPTC or any other organisation. It is my personal opinion only and it our intention to do no harm. My main legal disclaimer applies to this article, all comments and all other articles on this website. If my friend receives his payments, we will post a formal apology to Big Money PTC on this website and we will recommend them accordingly, but I can now be CERTAIN this won’t happen as payments are extremely overdue while BigMoneyPTC ignore all attempts of contact. If anyone can send be definite 100% proof that RichPTC have actually paid out, I will also write an apology. If Big Money PTC or RichPTC would like to respond or comment, we would be delighted to print it.
