Ok, what we are going to do is build a scam list here. Im gonna give you a chance to improve my blog. just write a site that scammed you in any way, didn't send you your payout, didn't give any points for surveys etc. Just post the link and how did you get scammed below this post in comments or send me an e-mail, or add me to MSN and write about it there if you would prefer to stay anonymous and i'll have a little background check, on the web-site, try to get a payout and if it really is a scam site i'll add it to the post.
Scam sites on talkPTC. The list is good and has most of the known scam sites on the market but i actually have found paying sites there so thats the reason im making this post here to have a bit more accurate list.
Colors and what they mean- Not a scam, Scam, Unknown.

completing offers on most of the GPT sites you sign up is not as easy as they actually say it is. First time i stumbled on one through referral link i found on youtube i didn't get points and was pretty sure that these sites are out there just to scam you. but after some background checking i realized that it was not GPT's fault it was strictly my fault and no ones else. So im gonna give you this simple guide so you would actually get some points for the surveys you complete.
1. Get rid of those cookies.
Before you open up your web browser, delete cookies with CCleaner, i have mentioned this software in some older posts but i bet you don't wanna look them up so im gonna write again whats CCleaner about. CCleaner means Cookie cleaner and it deletes those annoying cookies from your web browser and directory. Well you can download CCleaner here, its a must!
2. Clean your private data.
Though cookies will get deleted through CCleaner there will still be junk in your web browser. I myself use opera but most of the freebie sites suggests getting Firefox, download here and if you do then i suggest you getting this little add-on called autofill Forms lets you fill out those annoying web forms with one click, either you can use software called roboform, has more features but in long run its pretty much the same. This one is not a must though, you can use any web browser you want but it helps a bit. Anyway after you open Firefox, under tools menu choose Clear Recent History.
Now check all the boxes and click clear or whatever it says.
3. 10min email.
This here is great email provider for this kind of things. 10minuteemail will give you temporary e-mail address for 10 minutes without any sign ups. If you need more then 10 minutes just click the "give me 10 more minutes" hotlink. I have this in speed dial function as i really use this often but as you are using firefox that i think doesn't have that feature just add this to your favorites, you will visit this place a lot. 10MinuteE-Mail
I have no idea why people make these videos as i talked to one of my friends on Prize Live and he said that this tactic didn't get him more then 10 referrals. Anyway i wasn't going to tell about this tactic as its pretty much useless but what you do is make a video on "how to complete offers on some GPT site" and throw a hidden referral link into description. The thing with this tactic is that people who view your video are most likely already a member of the GPT site you are referring to so no referrals. But if you are having troubles with offers these videos will most likely help you out. Just write how to complete "name and price of the offer" on "GPT's name you are using" and just follow the steps in the video.

I stumbled on this PTC guide on one forum and decided to post it here as its really good. I can't take credits for it though but if you are earning with Paid To Click websites you might try it. Its called NeoBux $50 A Day guide. And usually guides like this don't really work and even if they do they require some sort of investment but this guide seems legit, anyways here it is. Its for NeoBux.
Start Clicking Your Ads Every day, When you reach 75 cents by clicking on your own ads (if you don't invest money) you are able purchase 3 referrals (DO NOT BY REFFS YET!), it takes a few days to earn the 75 cents on your own and people are so eager to buy referrals that they just purchase as soon as their account reaches 75 cents.
When people do this they do not realize that they do not have enough money to maintain their rented referrals and their referrals eventually are taken away because they can't pay for them.
Ok so before you rent referrals you should earn $3 by clicking on your ads (Or You Can Invest For Quickness) and then transfer it to your rental balance. This way you have $1 per referral and you will easily be able to recycle them if they are not active or pay to keep them for one more month. It will take a while to get $3 on your own, but this way you will be able to keep your referrals and exchange the inactive ones for active ones without the fear that you will not be able to pay for them.
Once you have your $3 in your rental balance purchase 3 referrals, Autopay is another must. As soon as you rent your first 3 referrals turn Autopay on (you will find this on the page where your referrals are listed). Referrals cost 30 cents a month to keep. Instead of you paying for the referral, they pay for themselves as long as you have Autopay turned on. What it does it subtract one of the advertisements your referral views each day and puts it towards the 30 cents that referral needs to stick around for another month. So you get one less penny from each referral, but they will be your referral as long as they are active.
Cashing out too early is a huge problem for people that use NeoBux.
When you request a payment it is INSTANTLY transferred into your Alertpay/Paypal account.
In order to see if NeoBux is indeed legit (which it is) many people will earn a dollar by clicking and then cash it out. Woo-hoo. You now have a WHOLE DOLLAR in your Paypal account.
That dollar should have been put towards buying referrals. With this strategy you will be putting $3 into your rental balance before you buy 3 referrals. So $1 per referral. I actually did not cash out until I started reaching +1000 refs.
Keep renting referrals by increments of 3 (you can rent by higher increments later as your referrals make you more money) and continue until you have 500 referrals. This will take quite some time. This is where most people flake out. When you reach 500 referrals, stop buying referrals and just maintain the ones you already have. Keep doing this until the money builds up to about $100 and you can use $90 of it to pay for golden. $100 won't take very long at all to get once you have 500 referrals and once you upgrade to golden your earnings will DOUBLE. This is the great part. Golden costs $90 a year but instead of getting half a cent for every advertisement your referral views, you get 1 cent. Your earnings double. That's all there is to it.
Keep renting new referrals after you upgrade to golden and don't cash out. Remember, you haven't cashed out at all, and you shouldn't until you have 2000 referals. But when you do cash out, you will be able to cash out about $50 a day. And that's the end of the strategy.

This has happened many time to me when a referral asks for help and only way for me to explain what he/she has to do is do it visualy. One way for this is to make a video, a simple tutorial and upload it to some video streaming site like youtube. The thing is that making a video and editing it is not an easy job. I for example have no experience in video making neither editing, i only have studied Photoshop a bit and i can work with that but video editing is like rocket science to me. So after frustrating night teaching my referral how to complete offers, he had to download CCleaner, Anti viruses, Spyware blockers etc etc. And on top of all that i had to teach him how to set up firefox and i did all that in MSN. After that night i asked my friend who knows a lot about different softwares if theres anything that would let me see or show referral what to do kind of software and he told me he would search for something like that and later i got an email with this website. I found that this software was exactly what i was looking for. Its called "Teamviewer" and if you are working with referrals i recommend you getting this amazing tool. So what does teamviewer do? It lets your referral to see what you are doing on your PC and lets you monitor what he is doing. Its really easy to set up and just as easy to use. It also lets you transfer files directly from your PC to referrals PC witch is great feature for sending ref guides and other files. I have used this program ever since on new unexperienced referrals who are struggling with setting up they're websites, making offers, and setting up different software they need.
Rewards1-A nice little and simple Get paid to website that offers many free offers to complete. The nice thing about Rewards1 is that they make paypal payments which many GPT's wont do for you. But if you prefer something else you can choose almost anything from reward center. They literally have everything there starting with different gaming consoles like xbox 360, Ps3 and ending with cell phones like Iphone and Nokia N95. Offers are easy to complete, mostly simple sign up ones. This is my main focus at the moment as i really like the site, administration and the community, in rewards1 forums you will find many helpful members and lots ad lots of free referral guides.
Prizelive- Another great Get Paid To site, its pretty much the same as Rewards1 though there is one huge difference between these two sites. Unlike rewards1 where contests from administration are limited and you can't win anything you really need, Prizelive offers many different contests for example Referral Contest, different forum contests provided by members and you can even win solid cash for offering your own contests. If administration will like the idea of your contest they will pay you some solid cash.
Points2Shop- Another great GPT site i just found few weeks ago. I have been doing offers and getting some of my friends as referrals. I toke me 1 hour to actually get paid as minimum payout to paypal on P2S is 1 $. I usually don't bother checking out new sites as minimum payout is 10 $ and you will never know if they will pay you or not. but as this site had 1 $ payout i gave it a shot and i was stunned cause they had delivered my 3,66 $ to paypal on the next day so i ordered myself new earphones from DX and im still using them.
Here are some of my contacts if you might need some help completing the offers.
