Are captcha services ripping you off?

    I just created 768 successful accounts with autopligg and had 674 failures. My decaptcher.com account decreased $5. Does this sound right considering its supposed to be $2 per 1000 correctly recognized captchas that should only be $2.88. I emailed their support a few minutes ago about it so we'll see how that goes..

    but how many of you actually track your captcha balances vs captchas solved, it might seem like a couple bucks but that shit adds up quick if youre a heavy user.

    How much does the software vendor charge? Decaptcher has an affiliate program where the vendor can set their own price per 1000 captchas and Decaptcher gets 2.00 + 50% of what is left (per 1000).

    One person that uses one of my bots, said his account got drained from 15 bucks. My software doesn't use an affiliate # so there is no way he made 7000+ posts to CxL over night.

    All I'm saying is, there is greedy hands in this world so the possibility is good that Decaptcher got it. There is also a possibility that the software vendor upped their affiliate price, which they can do at any time and then lower it at any time.

    Another thing, the software should notify Decaptcher when the captcha wasn't solved correctly so you get a refund. The software might fail to do so which in turn, would only make the price about 20% higher considering Decaptcher has about an 80% success rate.

    Im not sure I'm using autopligg, this is unreasonable for software vendor to dictate how much I pay for captcha considering the captcha services advertise a specific price.

    Decaptcha Support got back to me rather quickly and claimed "malicious workers" and they were going to implement new quality assurance program starting today will solve the problem...but no mention of a refund. Thats all well and good but if I dont see my account balance increase by any measure I wont be too pleased. Especially when I watched actually watched my balance decrease in autopligg with no new accounts created just a bunch of invalid captchas logged.

    I noticed similar issues with senuke and bypasscaptcha.com , sometimes you see a string like: wrong_image_you_will_not_get_charged

    but most of the time, they enter wrong values (and you still get charged). Atleast it happened alot for me, enough to made me think it could be a scheme...

    Some people like to put out free bots and Decaptcher is a great way for them to make money off of it. If you read the Decaptcher page when you log in, it will tell you that the software vendor can charge what ever they like.

    Says it on the first page when you log in.

    Had an issue like this a while ago with Decaptcher, Burned off like $7 worth the credits to create a couple hundred accounts at a particular bookmarking site. On top of that, their service is uber slow at times.

    So apparently when you use autopligg with decaptcher.com instead of their advertised $2 per 1000 its $20 per 1000.

    Thats the last time I use them for sure with autopligg, the makers of autopligg are a bunch of cunts for reaming their customers like that on the back end...literally. I couldnt be more pissed unless I had actually paid for autopligg.

    So it never occured to you that whoever cracked your software has probably stuck in some visciously high affiliate link to milk you with ?
