However, I myself still have some suspicions regarding the site and this whole situation. I find it extremely curious that right before the disclosure, they recently changed their membership upgrade programs, and the amount of ads you can view is in the process of being changed to a fixed rate. This was hyped up by many (including PTCBox themselves) to buy up the old memberships while you still can. (Once they are gone, you will not be able to). Okay so all that ended, the new model was in place, yet still being tested. Fast forward, maybe two or three days later, and we get this news dropped on us. I believe this was their way of getting as much money as they could before the inevitable happened.
If you are thinking of upgrading or adding additional multipliers to your current membership, our advice is to do it before the end of 31 August because this will give you a big advantage. You will benefit from the new "more and guaranteed PTC ads" model with the very high ratios of the old memberships.
Great advice...Maybe it is just the conspiracy theorist in me, but it looks to me like it was all setup this way. Something just does not add up right. With that said, I am not going to get too deep into the matter, because what is done is done. This is the risk that we take when joining any site to earn money online, especially most PTC sites. This is not a major surprise to me. Nor should it be to anyone.
What can we learn from this? Well I am always trying to make it clear that you should not for any circumstance invest your hard earned money into a PTC site, unless you are willing to lose the money. Sad but true. You never know what can happen. Do not do it unless you can do without the money. You are taking a risk regardless of the trustworthiness of the site. There are less than a handful of sites that I would invest in, and I always look to reinvest the money earned from the site itself. I am not out to lose money, if I so happen to lose money it will be the money earned from the site. We should also take note that while a site may seem trustworthy it is still no guarantee! I had PTCBox on my Most Trusted page recently, due to the fact that it was run by the same owner as MatrixMails, which has been a trusted site for 10 years (although it is declined in its service as well). Not to mention the amount of praise it had gotten, and in a quick time, it established itself as a trustworthy paying site. Not only was it paying, but it was also paying on time and instantly. The recent news is actually very disappointing, PTCBox had great potential to be one of the best if not the best PTC site ever. One can only hope that they fix their issues with Paypal, and the site can resume back to its high quality standard. For those of you who invested I really hope things work out for you.
For anyone looking for trustworthy sites to invest in, for the time being I would only recommend the following 3 sites: (remember my rule, and that no site is truly guaranteed, but these sites have a proven track record.)
Below I will leave you with the sad news regarding PTCBox and its future.
