WidgetBucks is a Worthless SCAM!
November 26, 2007
Surprise, surprise… It’s all a scam!
UPDATE: WidgetBucks has paid their members, but I still firmly believe they are a scam. Please read WidgetBucks Pays… But They’re Still A Scam to learn more.WidgetBucks.com, the new competition for Google Adsense? Originally I thought so, but maybe not. Their motto is Ads suck, ours don’t. Okay, so maybe their ads don’t suck the least bit, but the way they run their company surely does.
Lately WidgetBucks have been realized to be worthless scammers, pretty freaking sneaky, and downright thieves. If you think I’m exaggerating, then you are DEAD WRONG. I am not the only one who thinks so. I have only been a member of WidgetBucks for a few days but have already been cheated by them. Just who do they think they are, anyway? Maybe they’re letting it go to their heads that people are saying they are the next Adsense.
I joined WidgetBucks for many reasons. The main one was because Adsense wasn’t making me much money when I had it installed, so I thought I would give WidgetBucks a go, hearing how their clicks can average around $0.50 each! My second reason was because upon joining, you get a free $25 to start you off – that sets your account halfway to the $50 payout! Why does WidgetBucks give away a free $25? Because you will never actually receive it. It’s just a gimmick!
Your account will never reach the minimum payout because all WidgetBucks does is wipe your money straight out from under you – that’s what they did to me. I had a couple dollars, and the next day it was gone. I originally installed one banner at the top of my homepage. It received some clicks, got me some earnings. The next day, I saw a big fat $0.00 staring right back at me. Where did my money go? Then the next thing I noticed was that the single person I had referred had also been erased from my account – I did not get credit for that either!
Do you know why WidgetBucks pays a lot more per click than Adsense does and why they give you free cash? Because you’re never going to get it. It’s all a scam to get you to sign up and refer others so THEY will get the money. Then you, their unsuspecting victim (and all those you told the site about) who has been advertising for them, suddenly logs on to find all your money gone or at least a huge chunk missing.
This is just a warning to all you folk out there who are using WidgetBucks – you are NEVER going to get anything in return! They offer a lot of extra money for various things and even have a referral system, but when they think you aren’t looking they delete your earnings records. This makes it so you will never reach that minimum $50 payout.
Don’t be caught supporting a phony program! Please share your opinions and let me know if you see anything fishy going on in YOUR WidgetBucks.com account. Who knows, I might be wrong, but it seems pretty suspicious that everyone’s earnings are just disappearing doesn’t it? Whatever’s going on here IS NOT honest.
