AoBux Scam! –AoBux will turn in Scam soon?
I know I will get all the comments from Aobux lovers that the site is really great and paying nice and there’s no point of telling it as a SCAM.
But I have reviewed the site and looking at all aspects right now I can say that the site is not stable and it has all reasons to worry. It looks that the site is heading towards being a scam site.
Following are the reasons for the same.
1) To many upgrade offers and too soon. –If you have observed the site has given christmas offers (extended one to Jan) and then again as soon as that offer was over a new upgrade offer was given. Too many upgrade offers at lower costs are tempting the users to upgrade and the admin is looking to have more money faster and faster.
2) Soon after upgrade offers were over,the admin reduced the prices of rented referral to a very low price. With this the recently upgraded members tempted to rent more referrals due to this.
Interestingly if you see,their upgrade offer is extended day by day by giving reasons that members wants it. But it can be easily seen that admin is just extending it unduly.
Here’s what I suspect,
—>There will soon be a DDOS attack(may be in 10 days) on site (Obviously a false one claimed by admin) and because of that people will not able to connect / earn from site.
—->After that you can expect either database corruption due to so called DDOS attack or Paypal account blocked without any specific reason.
The whole scenario will last for 15-30 days and interestingly during this period also the rent referrals and upgrade membership will work as normal.
So in a nutshell,I just caution the readers about the site and just make sure you have enough time on site before investing too much.
I am sorry to write this review but this is what I feel and what I have seen so far with my experience with site. I hope I am wrong and admin proves to be honest and all current members earn with the site but this is just a precautionary message.
I hope I prove to be wrong and site sustain next 45 days. If it happens I will officially write an apology here to the Aobux admin.
Update 7th Feb 2011:Admin ran another big discount upgrade for 1 week and now just after it is over now there paypal is limited again. Interestingly if you see,in last 1 month there were 3 times big discount upgrades were given. All these are signs of building up a scam and readers are definitely advised to stay away from the site.
Update 14th Feb 2011:Its valentine day’s gift. Admin is not replying any messages since a week and no payments since last few days. Forum is slowly getting SPAM and moderators are also disappearing. This is just becoming another buxess(scam ptc) kind of thing. So now we can safely say it as a SCAM. And I am happy that I need not to apologize for what I have written. Its just 18 days since I predicted and it has happened in 18 days. In fact,if you read my post,it had happened just after 2 hrs from my post and they said their paypal got blocked first time. But since there was comment on forum that it was predicted,they said the paypal is “Luckily”restored in 3-4 hrs time. Thereafter they again ran discounted upgrades and gathered some more money and introduced 7-10 days payment policy to slow down things. They also paid few people during this period with small amounts. And finally they are gone after 7th Feb.
