    I made a thread asking the same question the other day.
    No one responded though. My account is now nearing $500
    just by tweeting and fb status updates. Could be a good alternative
    to paypal if they ever get off the ground and they pay us as promised.

    i read the terms and its like that money is in their own currency its not usd you will be paid in it doesnt really make good sense to me that they could just come up and create their own currency as strong as the dollar

    I didn't know that you asked all ready.I'm wondering if they really pay... I don't think they can afford though. The owner of the site is willing to pay 15$ to get 100 subscriptions to his site... Sounds too fishy if you ask me

    I tried it too, made a few twitter posts and now my account is up to around 300. Thats about all the promoting I'll do til I can actually get paid from it not just see it in my account.

    I actually know the owner of this website, I think he is serious about this and I think it's going to be a big launch, but about the money, it might be that he is giving too much, hopefully he will be able to pay all.

    There is absolutely no point to the website. The "Free money" and money peole get every day for logging in, referring people and signing up is not real money.

    This is a site with a major problem. It states on its home page under the tab of, "How it works," that, "Currency exchange with all major world currencies." However, this is NOT TRUE!!!

    See point in the TOS entitled, "Account Balances," in which it states that, "All account balances are held in PayBox currency" and PAYBOX CURRENCY CANNOT BE EXCHANGED OR SPENT"

    Further down in the TOS it states that, "PayBox.me does not warrant that the service will be...SECURE or ERROR FREE" There is no way to contact anyone who owns the site and there is so SSL encryption when entering personal information.

    Additionally, these terms are not mentioned on the home page or on the sign up page. This is false advertising at its best (worst). Pure scam in my opinion. I suggest for anyone who wishes to sign up, read everything first and make sure you know exactly what you are getting into and do not, under any circumstances give them any money at all!




    Bottom line?
    Dont trust.

    Hi all, this is my 1st post so I hope it will be of some use.
    When I first found out about paybox I did loads of research to find out if it was a scam, even after that I'm still not sure.
    This was all I could find...
    When Paypal was in beta it also paid people to spread the word and refer users to it's service, as we know the paypal launch was sucessfull and those people were paid for their referrals.

    Paybox website earns over £1500 per day from adsense so the website is already generating some income, that should help to pay some of the users.

    I think paybox has been very transparent, they are only promising to pay if their launch is sucessful. I have not referred anyone and I don't intend to spend much time marketing this service. I have a balance of $300 and becuase I spend about 9 hours a day on my laptop it's not much effort to log in once or twice a day to keep the account active (It only takea about 1 minute to log in and complete the daily survey).
    I really hope paybox takes off and becomes real competition for paypal, I hate paypal with a vengance!

    Edit: I did come find a unofficial paybox forum on my search for paybox info, cant remember the name but people were already trading paybox money, only for small things like amazon gift vouchers and prepaid credit cards with small balances. I suppose like any currency it's the faith of the spenders that determines it's success.

    If it is a scam or not, we will see when its open to public. I just hope those dollars will have some real value.

    Would you really call it a scam if all they are doing is getting people to
    promote the site so they make adsense money?
    No one's losing.
    I'd call it clever.

    Don't know if anyone is still following this thread but paybox has now changed its name to virtapay, also thier blog is saying that you should be able to buy and sell products in the next 2 weeks. They will only let you sell products that can be digitally delivered though, like ebooks, website memberships etc

    It's looks basically like an already been done concept by bitcoin.org, just a virtual currency. You hold no cash value unless you can trade it for something or get it to be used in online shops.

    From their T&C page -

    All account balances are held in VirtaPay virtual currency. VirtaPay maintains a virtual currency that is autonomous and independent of all nations and governments. The VirtaPay currency is denominated in dollars and cents (similar to the currency of the United States and over 20 other countries). The VirtaPay currency is currently in a closed system, and cannot be exchanged or spent outside of this system. Our plans include person-to-person transactions, integration with merchants and shopping cart systems, and much more. As is the case with any currency, once the VirtaPay currency comes into widespread use, its value as weighted against other world currencies can and will fluctuate due to market forces such as supply and demand, etc.
