    owner of video wanted me pay him 10$ to get my link on his videos..
    10$ upfront sounds like a way to get scammed most his videos have few thousands views.. one has millions.

    is this a good way to make money should I try get him to trial it for a week so I can get some sales to pay him.

    1) It's $10.
    2) You're asking for a service. If he shows the link for a week and you don't pay, he's out.
    3) Payment upfront is reasonable in this situation. Do you have any other information to indicate he may attempt to rip you off?

    You approached him for a service, upfront is very much the norm IMO.

    Ten bucks isn't a whole lot to lose, just take a shot.

    It's fucking a guy who knows fucking kid who has this video he will scam this $10 esay,
    it's fucking internet everybody will scam you for even a $1
    most of the ppl dont make money online
    so to get a dollar or two to your paypal sounds great to them!

    so you've been scammed many times, eh?

    or maybe you've scammed many people but unfortunately, they're no longer buying into it since your method is obsolete?

    regardless, are you saying that you never payed upfront for a service you wanted?

    i really hope you at least passed elementary school because it did teach me the fundamentals of using common sense in various areas of my life.

    if not, i heard you can take classes online.

    Horrible comparison... Walmart is a trusted store, not a random guy on the internet.

    On topic: There's no real way to prove if it's a scam or not. Make sure he owns the videos first of all and then it's a risk from there on out.

    For the record, that wasn't my point.

    All I am saying is that, if want to BUY something, either tangible or intangible, 99% of them WILL require you to PAY UPFRONT.

    in regards to reputation or legitimacy, that's your homework to find out.

    You are not losing your house... just $10!

    If you don't risk you don't win!

    When did he sign up in youtube? If he has been a member for a long time, you can trust him!

    hmm paid him yesterday my friend sent me money for it :) I made his computer quite a bit faster so hopefully hes not expecting to much back. Didnt really understand why he was running a 32 bit vista with 2 dual core 64bit processors but eh!

    I am pretty broke atm, but I have various amounts of assets spread through the internet waiting for it all to hit cash out marks.

    He hasnt claimed the cash yet so ill see, his vid with 3mil views would be nice start to some sorta income.
