Probux Scam: Gustavo did it again, sorry for your loss!

Too tired to read? Listen to this article instead:

Probux Scam

I’m used to blog solely about the Paid-To-Click sites I use.
Why? Because I’m convinced the best way to share accurate insights about statistics and potential earnings is to be a member!

But today, I will break that rule!
Let’s speak about one of the biggest scammer of the industry:
Mister Gustavo Gil Peron
(teamed up with Alexandre Pereira Prazers).

He deserves an award the first place on our (virtual) wall of shame!
Indeed, he is the only owner who managed to rank, in a few years, at least five sites to the TOP 1000 most visited sites worldwide… (Source: Alexa.com)
Until he decided to close it down and run away with your money!

If you don’t know him yet, you surely want to read this…
because sooner or later he will be back!
 

Probux View Ads: tons of ads, should you be happy about it?


If you have an account at Probux, you may have noticed that there is currently a lot of advertisements to be clicked (80+ at the time I’m writing this topic!).
Should you be happy about it? Not at all!

Probux is having large numbers of advertisements because most of the members noticed they can’t (and won’t be able to) cash out which is why they are converting their main balances into ads.

To be honest, considering the fact that Probux Ads don’t even have a captcha protection, I’m guessing that currently the biggest part of “clickers” are Probux auto clicker (macros or other cheats). If I were you, I would not even bother to click those ads.

The time has come to convert your remaining balances and leave it.
Here is why…
 

Probux Scam: another Huge PTC gone Scam:


Since I opened the blog that you’re reading right now,
I must admit I got some attention to my list of best Paid-To-Click sites.

Guess what was the #1 ask I was receiving through my email or Skype?
I won’t let the suspense last, it was: Why are you not member in Probux, Fusebux and Zapbux?

My reply was pretty simple: next to the fact their earning schemes are 100% unstable, those three sites are run by Gustavo Gil Peron, a big scammer.

The same guy that opened and scammed with Upbux and Onbux a few years ago.

PTC-investigation did a great job collecting some proofs about this. But still, a lot ignored the obvious facts:

  • Same Modified Script.
  • Same Location.
  • Registered company (most likely bogus and used to lure in people).
  • Former Onbux mod showing up again in PTC industry before Probux launch.
  • Same fixed fake ads “eToro, BinaryOptions, etc…”.
  • And same shipping address!

Fusebux Scam

 

 

 

 

 
 
 

Probux News: saving time to avoid disputes:


What happened in Probux? Since several weeks, Probux is not paying.

Since they are smart and aware that you can’t dispute a purchased item once a 45 days grace period is over – they are coming up with random excuses to save time:

Payments only available at server reset, then totally off for “maintenance” during weeks (changing the date of a hypothetical release) and the Probux forum is now down for a small “48h maintenance” (which last since weeks. It will probably never be back!).

Of course the same is happening on Fusebux and Zapbux (forums are up, but you are unable to post something there).

If you invested there, my advice is to open a dispute right now!

Once most of the people are out of the dispute timeframe, Probux website will be down forever.

(Psst. for bloggers, keywords such as probux scam, probux not paying, probux down, probux not loading or probux offline may get high search volume in Google asap!)

 

Bottom line:

Good luck to all those who were affected by those events!
I hope next time you will take into consideration warnings and huge red flags before joining (and investing) in any online earning opportunity.

Keep your eyes open, because they will be back!

  1. I believe it happened to everyone to make bad choice and loose some money on a bad program! ;)
    It’s great to hear you are earning well and compensating your loss elsewhere! :)

  2. Hello. This is the first time I see this site. I came here looking for information about Probux. It seems, most PTCs are having a very hard time this days as many new ones joined the market and several old ones are already out of it.
    This week I noticed that PayPal is blocking accounts for PTC Sites and this added to scam sites like Ojooo and NeoBux assure me that it’s time to stop wating hours trying to get some coins and use those hours to enjoy life.
    Thanks for the info. Have an excellent day :)

    • Hello Leonardo,

      Do you mean probux.me? It seems offline right now, but I did not follow or review that one.
      The review above was about probux.com which was online a few years ago (3rd largest paid-to-click back then probably).

      I’m not sure how Ojoo is behaving nowadays, but they were only paying selectively at best since months already. Most likely a waste of time unless you get lucky.

      As for Neobux, why are you calling them criminals?
      I’m personally not using it, nor enjoying the “bux” model (with rented referrals), but as far as I know they are paying earned amount instantly and smoothly? :-)

      Ps. If you want stable earning online, the best way is to start your own business I believe. Either sell your services or products or find affiliates that you can leverage.
      Of course, this require work, and it’s a long-term effort but it can pay well and for a lifetime when done properly.

      Enjoy your day.

    • I’m not promoting it nor willing to waste my time speaking about it while it’s under SEC investigation.

      It’s their job and we will see how it goes.
      I had just repurchased for $14,000 advertising service a few days back, so I’m already enough pissed off to see this happening.

  3. Hello! May I ask if probux.me and probux.com is the same?

    I’ve been a member of probux.com but, sadly, it went scam.

    Thanks!

  5. I forget when I used to used Probux but it was the first PTC site that I ever signed up for back in the summer of either 2012 or 13.

    Took me 4-6 months to finally earn up enough to make a cash out and once I did my account was cancelled without any explaination and I never recieved a penny from them.

  6. i already had 4.8$ in my account,i tried to log in again and they say account not available and i cant have my hard earned money anymore if i saw this guy i will kill him.

  10. I was quite satisfied with probux and could cash out 3 times earlier. In March 2014, all 11 referrals stopped clicking at the same time for 2 months, when I posted in probux forum, they started clicking. As we can suspect, how all the 11 referrals who were clicking everyday can stop clicking at the same time.

    By July I earned more than $10 and tried to cash out a few times, but I couldn’t. At last I donated my earnings for the webmaster’s treatment when he will be admitted in ICU in future. Because he deserves a bad result for his bad action.

    Reply
    • Hello,
      Great to hear you were able to cashout few times before the crash.

      And yes, most of Paid-To-Click are using bots…
      That’s why I prefer to focus on direct referrals ;)

      Looks like they are back for another scam party with Kayads.
      Let’s see how many will join this time!

      All the best and Have a great day.

    • If you invested by Paypal… I would raise a dispute.. Just state you know its a fraudulent site… Because their Paypal has been disabled they are unable to dispute your claim so will rule in your favour after 10-15 days… Even if they don’t its worth a shot trying to get your money back… I managed to get some back which I invested 4 months previous to claiming….

      Normally Paypal refund you from their own funds… And then they chase the account holder separately…

      Good Luck

      • Hello Checky,
        Four months old really? I though the maximum limit was 45 days… Did that changed already? :)

        But yes, if people are still in dispute timeframe – it definitely worth a try.

        • The funds were reversed to me on the 25th of October, I made the payments on 10th July & 17th of July… So about 3 and a half months… Still a long time though….

          It may have been because it was within 120 days of the original transaction…. I have just spotted another deposit from May… So I’m going to see if I can get that one refunded as well

          Reply
          • Hello Checky,
            That’s great! You lucky. I guess they changed things recently.

            I had give a try on 21 September for my 45+ days old transactions (advertising purchase)
            and it was closed automatically by system. But I guess had that time, few had already made report about the scam to Paypal :)

            Good luck with your last transaction then, I hope you will manage to get that refunded as well.

            All the best,
            Tanguy – Incognito007

          • It went through the process of raising a claim in relation to the payment from May.. However isn’t showing in my open disputes… Will keep you updated

    • Hello Thirupathi,

      Sound like it’s an issue everyone is currently facing…
      Probux show his true colors. I’m afraid you won’t be able to login.
      And even if you do, it will be a waste of your time as they are not paying anymore.

      Sorry for your loss. Hope you will do some great cash elsewhere to compensate that ASAP.

  13. Yeah i had also account on probux until august this year when i quit clicking since i tried 1 full month to withdraw my money. However i didnt invested anything in that PTC (or other) since i dnt trust enough in this kind of thing in order to spend money. So i only clicked my ads and bought RR and managed to get 70 USD on my paypal account until turned into scam :)

  14. Hi,
    I have over $10 in probux and from last few days it is showing incorrect username or password every time i try to loggin. I think i lost my money as well as i have wasted my time.
    Stupid people. should not promise if you can’t keep it.

    • Hello Kesavan,

      Thanks for report.
      Seems to confirm the remaining doubts: everyone is having those troubles.

      I guess it’s not a bad things though, should be faster for people to understand this site is game-over.
      It was quite weird to see lot of people weren’t aware of it yet, while it makes MONTHS now that they are not paying a penny.

      Wishing you all the best in your money making endeavors!

  15. I tried to log in to my ProBux account and it said invalid login. Literally tried 3 times and even when I tried ‘forgot password/username’ the page crashed. Reading the warnings online is necessary. Will discontinue those other sites mentioned.

    Thanks for heads up.

      It’s definitely a great idea to make few online research when you plan to join a program,

  16. Didnt invested money on Probux, but when a site shows good profits from adds and rented affiliates, its very suspicious. However they paid me 2 times until they went “scam”. Its to avoid now.
    Other to avoid is Ojooo, didnt invested too, very bad rentals, that almost never clicked. They only paid once. Avoid that site too.

    Reply
    • Hello Tom,

      Thanks for sharing your experience.
      And yes, I would definitely avoid Ojooo! Next to the issue you quoted, lot of people are waiting their payments since months.
      Looks like they are doing selective payments since a while now…!

    • Hello George,

      Emoneyspace was owned by William Jackson aka “NorthOwl”, the owner of Incentria and Clicksia.
      He ran those sites for six years, so I guess he tried hard to make it work.

      The reason given for the closure was a lack of interest for the websites
      while health issues was preventing him to focus on it.

      Not sure how valid are those reasons as I don’t know him well… :)

      Though what I can say is that when I sent him messages about my advertising loss due to his sites closure,
      he was fair enough to reply and gave me a compensation of $100
      (even though it was lower than my loss, nothing was forcing him to do so as I was out of dispute).

      I guess the forum closed for the same reason.
      But I don’t understand why he didn’t sold it… :)

      If someone have more information about that,
      I would be pleased to hear it!

      Edit: emoneyspace is back! =)

  20. Well, u all must think i am such an idiot, because i lost 40$ thanks to Probux. Thank a God i am earning on better PTC sites so i compensated my loss. There was something odd about Probux since July 2014 when they shut down Paypal service for mainetance and it get worse and worse since that time and i don’t believe it will get better anymore. I hope that anybody won’t be screwed by this scam provider.

Now my account has suddenly disappeared. I wrote 2 emails to Probux support but received NO reply. They have ripped off everyone and become a total scam! I hope the admin chokes on his on vomit. Gustavo bites. I intend to make life as miserable as I can for the jerks responsible.

        I understand you, it’s always really annoying when such things happen!

        It’s great to build up an account over time,
        but when it comes to earning money online on similar program,
        I would definitely recommend to never keep “sleeping money” in your account.
        Rather be safe than sorry.

    • Hello Mickey,
      As you may have read above my feelings are pretty clear! :)
      They are scammers, scammed in past and will keep doing so.

      I fear that seeing the site up or down does not matter anymore at this point,
      as they are not paying anymore.

      Everyone is free to make his own mind and hopes though,
      but for me Probux or any other sites they owned, owns or will own in future are a waste of time and money.

      Wishing you all the best! :)

      It’s always hard to know in advance which one will remain bulletproof through years to come.

      I think the most important is to build up a smart strategy, milking out the BAD ones,
      and spreading your risk among those you believe COULD be the good ones.
      I would recommend to use at least 4-5 sites, to be sure your global earnings remain at similar level over time.

      If needed, you can find a list with the sites I’m currently using at:

  30. Same here – invested and lost my money. A bit more than $80 actually. And not the first time I got ripped off by those PTC scam sites. The question is how do I earn with PTC?

    Reply
    • Hello,
      My advise when it comes to earn from ptc sites,
      is to pick carefully 5+ of them to spread the risk. Never put all eggs on the same basket.

      There is only few who last for 2+ years
      and it’s hard to know in advance which ones will.

      Be sure to review them carefully:
      Review owner background, check the scheme and giveaways,… :)

    • Hello Risahbh,
      Sadly, Probux is scam. Means you won’t be able to redeem those $8…

      Neobux is definitely part of the elite ones (along with clixsense),
      I do not rely a lot on rented referrals – which is why Neobux is quite unattractive for me, but it’s just a personal feeling. It’s a good site :)

  34. OMG! well since everyone is posting I might as well too. I joined probux last year 2013, didn’t withdraw any money at all and didn’t invest any either. But I gotten through golden through RRs and was earning quite well until last month (September/2014) LOL. To bad really I have $485.50 in main balance LOL. I didn’t lose anything but time, I wasted on this. Thank you for posting this, I should have seen it coming or withdraw earlier, well now it’s abit to late, can anyone tell if NeoBux and Cilxsense worth doing cause these are my two remaining site with me without problems yet!? I don’t want to waste time just like probux. (and I too am not posting anything for you to join me or anything in these websites) I just want to know if its worth the time is all, and again thank you for creating this blog and telling everyone probux is a SCAM.

    • Hello Fury,
      You are welcome. And thanks for sharing your experience.

      Neobux have very strict management on rented referrals.
      Since it’s backed up with large advertising purchases and money from offers, I believe it is and will remain stable.

      Clixsense is even better as they solely focus on advertising and offers (this is the way real business should be built).

      Both seems really secure, but anyway I would never recommend to keep hundreds dollars in balance.
      It costs nothing to redeem them and doing so, you are sure you secured it! :)

    I managed few weeks golden membership, just before it all turned bad. Even still clicking ads, I noticed today that all my 470 referrals has in one row gone inactive. LOL

    I didn’t exact lost money there, but still countless hours of clicking since February. The more worse thing of it perhaps, that I’ve ealier contributed to recommending this crap to others. Not so happy about this now.

    Right now I’m deciding jumping to neobux or starting some sort of bitcoin currency exchange.

  41. Hello Sir,
    I am a banker.I STARTED using probux a month ago. I started this because one of my account holder was getting money from it on an average of Rs.60,000 per month. ($600 per month).
    He told me so I also started. But reading your blog, I am confused. :(
    Also, I have seen other sites having reviews about this probux, they say that it is an OK site. Don’t know what to do :(

    • Hello Usman,
      I can understand your feeling. There was indeed lot of people doing great money in there.
      I was chatting with titii77 from time to time in Skype, who was earning nearly $3000 in there.

      But nevertheless, Probux was owned by scammers. And it was to be expected it would end that way.
      Sad that you lost time and money in there.

      I believe most of the reviews you are referring to are old-fashioned (unless there is still few believers out there :D).
      But sadly, Probux is not paying since months… and looking the background of the team behind it it’s pretty obvious it won’t change anytime soon.

  42. The only thing I can do now on Probux is clicking ads. Because of many signs that it’s turning scam, I’ve tried to cashout. But everytime I clicked on the button, it always said
    “The daily limit for transfers today has been exceeded.
    Please try again at 00:00, 06:00, 12:00, or 18:00 server time.”
    Even when I clicked at the prefered time.
    It’s sad to say but one more evidence “I cannot cashout”.

    I signed up under you on wealthy affiliates as TheNinjaWooH I wanted to contact you about building my website to promote Paidverts and eventually getting into selling my own t-shirts. I used to use probux until everything went haywire. Who knew Probux was a scam. I didn’t lose much except time and effort. I was fed up with scams and decided to do progress. I made some. Im currently sitting at 30K bap points. Im looking for ways to speed up my earnings. My premium ran out for wealthy affilates so I thought this would be the best way to contact you.

  44. Something I do not understand why the site PROBUX still works, although the company does not pay for its members, if they have already scam on us. Why do not you shut down the site and leave us from this headache.? But if the company then the problems really are trying to fix it and why take all this time, which is more than four months without even re-Forum to work again, or communicate with its members, as did the site NeoBux at a critical period passed him. The last thing probux is one of the most famous sites PTC has evolved in recent times is fast, and were paid consistently, I mean how all this wasted effort expended in an attempt to steal the members in the last day, something puzzling

    Reply
    • Hello Abdel,
      It’s simple. And you can see it even in the comments in there.
      Some people still trust it. So they keep clicking and/or investing…

      It’s not the first time the Probux owner do it that way.
      So, I would not compare things with Neobux “trouble time” :)

  47. I got to the cashout line about 2 weeks ago. I have been trying to cash out again and again in vain. As you said the “server time” is always eluding me and their forum is off for “little maintenance” all these days. The site is up again but I have lost my trust in it. It can be restored only when they pay me for my hard work of 75 days.

  49. The site did get me $100+ until it turned dodgy so I didn’t lose anything by joining. You just need to recognise the warning signs and stop clicking when it shows signs of becoming dodgy. The signs were all there back in May when they said they were doing “PayPal maintenance” which is nonsense. Probux has shut down its forum as people were posting warnings about its scam status to new members, so I am currently email bombing Probux daily and recommend others do the same. The only way these people learn is if members keep asking them to shut down their scam site so they don’t fool others.

    • I agree, there’s where we can do something, expose the site so no one else gets fooled.

      Also, I tried today to close my account and there are two clauses (9.4 and 9.5) in the Terms of Service that says that after 30 days of inactivity your account will be temporary suspended and permanently suspended after 60 days of inactivity, and that they will never remove an account under any circumstance even if they are active, canceled or suspended

  50. Actually I was paid by Probux several times, always instantly. I do not know whether they would pay me now again but I’ll make a try as soon as possible. What do you pay tome if I get my money and post a payment proof?
    About the bots: almost all PTC-s use them and you know what? They are much more reliable than the lazy real people. I have direct refs in several programs and they perform next to nothing. All of them want to get rich overnight – perhaps they should try to rob a bank rather than trying internet marketing. There they will get shot and calm down for good at least instead of fooling me.

    Reply
    • Hello SoloIcewind,
      Yes, you can definitely do money if you know what risk you take and join early enough.

      As I said, the reason why I don’t do so (next to the fact I hate to support such guy),
      is that I’m mostly working with direct referrals and I would have some ethical issue in referring people
      to a site which I’m 100% sure was set just to stole people money.

  52. About what Filppo has strongly declared regarding what he/she called partners in crime.
    i would disagree to call all what mentioned the label. Yes Probux moderators are known to be very rude and had this oppressive attitude towards members in the forum. but to include others is unfair to say the least.

    BigCooper, Draco, Studio7group are to blame for being so negative about anything. You would call them bunch of bum kissers. Now Moonlight wasn’t around for much while, why would Flippo blame him? 4rest and the rest of pro-probux are innocent people. however am not sure about that CleverPigs. That guy lured many members to extend their stay with ProBux. His coming from no where is even more to the point or let me say the mission he sent to achieve. Maybe he was the admin playing god among us. there were many signs about that. i don’t know for sure.

    Probux destroyed the hopes for many many people including me. so bad it hurts to the moment.

Whenever anyone clicked these 1 cent ads and the counter went to zero it would say the ad expired(as if all the clicks were used up) but the ad would still be up. Many believed that the person who placed the ad was pausing it every 10 or so seconds to get more visits(because if you view the ad and they paused it you wont get credit for viewing and the poster will get more views) PB admin never banned these scammers or even warned them…BigCooper, Draco, Studio7group

      I wasn’t member at Probux, so I’m not knowing those names neither how deep they were involved in that event.

      I had seen that one of the core moderator from Onbux,
      suddenly appeared in Emoneyspace forum to promote Probux the day it launched.
      So maybe that guy is really close from the team.

      Otherwise it’s hard to judge. Sometimes it’s just people that help in managing the forum,
      without having any link to the team and their deceptive acts.

      Most of the people I know on Skype, who were member there and opened dispute – got refunded by Paypal.

      So there is hope if you made it properly.
      The only other factor is that at one point, there Paypal balance will probably hit zero (as I guess they did cashout to their bank before being suspended by Paypal).

    • Hello TRASHBARG,
      Yes, I noticed this too!

      But as you said, it’s not changing a lot as they are NOT paying.
      I was quite surprised to see it down, as they probably still collect money from optimistic people that keep clicking, advertising and spending their money blindly.

      Well… :)

      Thanks for sharing.
      Have a great day,
