The owner of “The Dollar Pit” used to send me messages on Yahoo to ask me to post this or that on my blog. Today I’m posting a warning.
If you had signed up for this site previously, you received a signup bonus. Now, let me start by giving my opinion on bonuses: If I say I’m giving you $5 to do something, whether it’s sign up for my site, spend it on an item, whatever, that $5 is yours. Once I give it to you, I no longer own or have control over that money. That just seems pretty basic to me.
Apparently that isn’t true of “The Dollar Pit”. If you’re given a bonus, and suddenly the rules change, it’s time to take back that money. I don’t know what the signup bonus is now, nor do I really care, and after this post I’m moving on with my life and I probably won’t give the site a second thought. However, with that being said, please just know that if you sign up for the site, it’s at your own risk.
I had my attempt to withdraw money deleted twice, once without explanation. The second time told me to either earn more money (higher than the minimum) or give my bonus back. I replied thanking the owner for explaining, and providing my opinion, to receive a message that was pretty rude: “I don’t hesitate to pay members that do the work.” — I have done some work, I’ve posted blog posts at her request, made a graphic she requested for her site, and I was given a bonus. So much for paying members that do the work.
My personal argument with the rude email aside, I will say it again: “if you sign up for the site, it’s at your own risk.” I’m all for business policies, but “honesty is the best policy”.
Would I go so far as to call this site a scam? Probably not. She probably does pay some members, but I personally sure can’t prove it. ;)
I’ll be going through to remove or edit previous posts about this site shortly.
