Freebie Pitstop Network = SCAM (Boost4Free, etc)
I have been processing for a few weeks now. Here are what the support tickets look like
You 2005-08-09 121054 Just curious when payment can be expected. Just wondering if you are one of the fast sites, or the slow ones ) Me and the other person that is order #1 are from the forums, so people are asking about ur site ) I am sure you will get more business when we get filled. Anyway, that is besides the point. I know you said you guys ship usually within a week, but I didn't know if it was different with paypal. Thanks a bunch )
Admin 2005-08-10 103901 Things are going a little slower because of the massive amount of fraud. Believe me we would love to be able to prove to your forum that our site is legit. We just need to check everything very closely. Please be patient and payment will be sent asap. Thanks
You 2005-08-10 113347 No problem, thanks, was just looking for a timeline )
You 2005-08-15 114533 How long does approval take? Any updates?
Admin 2005-08-16 171138 Sorry for the delay. Your order has been approved and should be processed shortly.
You 2005-08-18 091845 Any date for when I will be processed? What is shortly? Just curious, thanks.
Admin 2005-08-18 174438 Cant give you an exact date.
You 2005-08-22 193208 I know you said you couldn't give me an exact date, but on the 16th you said it would be processed "shortly". Not sure what that was supposed to mean. I was also originally told this in one of my previous tickets "Usually twice a day. Orders are currently taking around 1 week to verify and be sent." Could you let me know what I am waiting on? Just curious.
Admin 2005-08-23 112209 Excessive fraud has delayed all orders. Your order should be processed and sent to you by the 29th of this month. We sincerly apologize for these delays but some of our advertisers are refusing to pay because of the fraudulent signups and we are working to clear everything up as quick as possible.
You 2005-08-23 182959 thanks
You 2005-08-29 082450 Today is the 29th. Should I expect to get my paypal today like you said in the other support ticket?
You 2005-08-31 152302 Can I get a response? Do I need to contact the BBB?
As you can see, I have not heard anything since the 23rd. 29th passed, and no Paypal. I had originally submitted my order on the 8th. I don't recommend trying their sites until I at least get paid.
Anyone that has an account with them, help me out and submit a support ticket saying you are waiting for me to get paid (order #2 from boost4free) )
I'm going to call Search Cactus on Friday and get them to hold his money.
I want to be able to get my money though ( If they hold it, that pretty much kills my chance, then again, I would probably get screwed anyway (
Ha, Boost4Free was the first site I completed (just one referral required). I thought it was a little strange that my order was #7.
Am I really just the 7th person to have ordered through them? Were you really the 2nd?
Yea, I am the second. Did they send you what ever you ordered?
I contacted Search Cactus saying I just wanted to talk to them about a few sites. He keeps delaying payments, when he should have his check by now, so I think it's safe to call them a scam.

I understand. Do what you gotta do...
Any update Zags?
They haven't called me back, but I will try again tomorrow.
I am still waiting on my free $50 boost 4 free card. (I submitted my account for approval on 8/28.)

LOL, I submitted for my Paypal on 2005-08-08 122230
And I am still waiting. One Month Tomorrow...
They are scammers.
So how do we get 'em? I am all about vengeance, vigilante-style.
Well, still no response )
[quote7ffff67552="gregcool"]Well, still no response )[/quote7ffff67552]
Why are you smiling? I'm pretty pissed.
Their main site (freebiepitstop.com) has been "down for maintenance" for a while, but their other sites are still functional enough to continue scamming people.

freebiepitstop.com was never actually up and running. And I am smiling b/c what else is there to do, I mean, it isn't the end of my life...
It's the first site that has scammed me. I only spent like $54 on referrals, so it's not that big of a loss.

Yea, first scam for me too, I spent about the same. Not worth crying over )
On the morning of 9/16, boost4free has a server error (bandwidth exceeded).
I realize $50 isn't a ton of money, but it's worth getting pissed over. These dudes probably made a couple grand without contributing anything. What if your friend scammed you for $50? Or someone here? You'd bend over backwards to ruin their reputation.
