Should I be concerned about giving my real name and bank details to adult networks?

    I somehow feel them to be more shady than whitehat businesses.

    I worry that if I somehow pissed them off with bad traffic they might release my information to the ravages of the darknet or something.

    I have often given my payoneer details for years now to these places but in that case they only have an email don't they and not your 'naked information'.

    I don't want to use the new payoneer/first choice crap so I am thinking of using direct bank payments for the ones that don't offer paxum. Does this leave my info more 'naked to the wind'?

    Lots of sites get hacked and the databases are dumped. If those adult networks are less secure then there could be a chance your details are released.
    There is risk with entering your personal details on any site. Lots of major sites have been hacked previously. Make sure your system is secure and if you feel a site is shady then stay away.
    If you are really concerned then probably best to stay off the internet.

    If you get an offline job those same records can be hacked, social engineered, or pulled out of a dumpster. Nothing is really safe.
    Monitor your accounts & if anything bad happens banks are usually swift to act in your favor. If you're truly paranoid you can open a unique account just for those payments.

    Yep. OP can't let fear keep them from making moves. Even a guy living in the woods isn't secure against disease, famine, wild animals... there's a risk to everything. You just gotta balance moving forward, while covering your butt. Being bogged down in fear defeats the purpose of security in the first place.

    Edit: Saw OP's next post... no network will risk sending someone after you. As for the doxing, you never know with any company. Just stick with places that have a decent reputation.

    I would research them first, find out everything about them, where they are registered and I would search the internet with key words like, is xxx.com a scam? xxx.com scammed me. Etc you get the point, If they do shady business there is usually some info about that to be found.

    lol that is deep, if that was an actual risk or something you are worried about I wouldn't do shit like that but I highly doubt a good company would do that as they would commit suicide.

    It is always possible, especially from those kids that run fly by night networks but I don't think you need to worry as it would damage their image/brand more and people wouldn't want to work with them.

    Assuming you're breaking rules, chances are they will share your name with other networks to put you on a blacklist, not send a boogeyman.
    I would worry about the hacking scenario more than a vengeful admin selling your records.
    Stick to reputable networks that have been around for a while with lots of feedback and you'll be fine.

    Alright cool. Out of interest do they have you personal info if you give them a payoneer or paxum email? ie can they check the details of who it belongs to or is that info kept confidential?

    Regarding picking only big networks, I am wanting to get away from the big ones like crak cos I hear time and time again about how they take the biggest cut, plus I want to get rid of networks completely and deal just with sponsors.

    There are quite alot of smaller websites which may be diamonds in the dirt. Webcamwiz for instance I made good money with them some years ago in seo. I like supporting the underdogs where possible, but ofc these smaller ones could have some pirhana's in with them :D

    its up to you who you want to work with
    imo smaller networks more likely to go belly up. there's no telling how ethical the owner of the data will be.
