Freebies4Webmasters Scam

Recently I wrote about Freebies4Webmasters. I signed up, submitted 3 web pages for ad placement and gained approval. I was paid 10 pounds (around $20) after the first month and my blog post resulted in 10 referrals.

Then the problems started. My approved referrals should have earned me 100 pounds so far. Instead, my approved web pages mysteriously disappeared from the system around the time Freebies4Webmasters decided they were not accepting any new publishers.

I have been patient and tolerant up to this point but after 5 unanswered emails I am sensing a stone wall of scamminess.

I will keep the ads up for one more week, on the off chance I receive a reply. Kind of like Waiting for Godot. If I don't receive a response by then it will be bye bye Freebies4Webmasters. I feel quite cheated as I know many have received payments larger than the ones owed to me at this time. The exchange rate would have approximated to $233 plus around $10 per month as an automatic payment. Not happy. Needless to say I will not be recommending this site to fellow bloggers.

  1. Wow, I'm glad you posted this as I was just getting ready to sign up with them! Thanks! I'm still looking for ways to monetize my blog now that adsense suspended me.

  2. Eu tb!! Obrigada!! Mas acho que já nem existe :)

  3. @MimonDeInfacia - I just translated your comment into English! Yes, that is true, their site has been taken down, which is a great relief to many people who were scammed by these tricksters!

    Thanks for stopping by!


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment ! :-)
