Another CyberRebates ponzi scheme.... There are certain indications that are usually typical for scams. In
the case of StudioTraffic.com, I have found a number of these
I. The lack of proper contact information
Reputable companies do not conceal their real address, phone and fax
numbers. Scam companies do this, and so does also StudioTraffic. Their
address is not listed anywhere on their website. I have checked for
the owner of their domain name, and the result is most suspicious. The
domain has been registered for StudioTraffic by a company named "Whois
Privacy Protection Service, Inc". This is one of the anonymizer
services spammers and scammers use to avoid being traced by their
victims. A reputable company just does not have any reason to hide
II. Questionable ways of advertising
I have searched the Usenet archives and found out that in numerous
cases, StudioTraffic has been advertised by persons who are
suspiciously enthusiastic about the service - and who have been
spamming various Newsgroups with similar advertisements for other
"make money fast", "make money by surfing the Web", "get paid for
surveys" services. I have no doubt that they are professional spammers
who regularly advertise obscure scam companies, using anonymous and
easily replacable Yahoo and Hotmail e-mail accounts. A reputable
company does not use such means of advertising their services.
III. Sign-up fee
As a general rule: If a company demands a sign-up fee and similar
payments for granting you the privilege of working for them, then it's
scam time. I have had a look at the FAQs - and there is not the
slightest guarantee that you will ever earn notable amounts of money
after having signed up with them. Basically, they use many words to
say: 'You give us money, and after that there is a slight chance but
no whatsoever guarantee that you will earn any money. You can give us
more money, but that won't change anything except that your account
status will have a more fancy name'. Or, as they say in their FAQ:
"Are payouts guaranteed at Studiotraffic? - We cannot guarantee
IV. Discrepancy between claims and reality
I have found virtually thousands of sites, forum postings and Usenet
postings that enthusiastically praise StudioTraffic - allegedly by
users, but the word choice looks amazingly similar in many cases, down
to identical phrases. Many included magniloquent statements, along the
lines of the "phenomenal growth" of the service. But there are not
many postings of people who have actually earned noteworthy amounts,
although one should assume that the huge number of enthusiastic users
must be proud of their easy money and tell the world how much they
earned. Much advertising disguised as customer opinions, but very few
manifest cases of success - highly suspicious.
Now they took the same fools thta fell for the other internet get rich quick MLM schemes. What network advertised this cyber con-man?
"What have you done today to put real value into a referral click...from a shoppers viewpoint!"

Oh yes, definitely a Ponzi in my opinion although I wan't aware that it had gone.
A quick look at this thread on scam.com (where I sometimes hang out) indicates that it had gone under. Talkgold has a whole series of threads where the suckers who fell for it are feeling sorry for themselves.
12DailyPro was another Ponzi that collapsed recently, stinging a lot of a investors.
The bottom line with Studio Traffic was this - autosurf programs are worthless. Nobody in their right minds would advertise a website via an autosurf program - so it was pretty clear that ST could not have the income it needed to sustain the high payouts.
