Not Only Biased But A Hypocrite and A Copycat

As of June 1st, rather than make ptp for upgraded members only as i stated in a previous admin message. Everyone can use ptp but will be paid in points rather than cash.

Those points can be redeemed for ptc ads, rotator views or paid e-mail point ads at a rate of 1000 for 1000 even exchange.
There will be no profit margin for the site. It's just going to be a way for members to earn free advertising.
The above is snipped from the latest book length admin message at Joint Venture.

I cannot begin to express how disgusted I am -- not with the changes but with the fact that Carole Stacy recently and repeatedly slammed the owner of E-qoo for doing *nearly the same thing*, going so far as to publicly state that the owner of E-qoo was spouting hogwash.

I guess all of a sudden 'hogwash' turned into an idea that Carole Stacy loves and will be implementing in shortly over a month.

Nearly the same thing: Carole Stacy took the 'hogwash' one step further though, at E-qoo you can actually get some cash for your points (10 cents per 1000 if you are in a hurry, considerably more if you wait for the owner to buy back points based on site profit).

You can only get ads in exchange for your points at Joint Venture.

The site already has over 750 ads in rotation and it takes months for ptc ads to expire.

Rotator views at Joint Venture are a total joke; they cost 2 points per view and I set up some rotator views for Amazon links 2 weeks ago and they've received 37, 46, and 77 views respectively.

The only ads that expire in a reasonable time frame are the cash emails and I don't see those even mentioned in what you get for promoting the ptp.

And why would members of Joint Venture who are upgraded and have an affiliate page be interested in earning more advertising?

I have 32 running banner impressions ads at Joint Venture.
I have 45 running ptc ads at Joint Venture.

Each month I get 10 banner impressions ads, 2 email ads, and 5 ptc ads as part of my upgrade.

I am running out of sites to promote at Joint Venture because of the sheer number of ads I already have running and because Joint Venture was removed from the ptp approved lists of many sites I belong to.

Then there's her latest scammy affiliate program.
Dear friend,

I would like to let you know about a website that I recently found to make big money online.

It works round-the-clock, and for not just days or weeks, but for months and months, making you tons of cash!

$0.00 invest - earn $780.00 daily.

It's real and easy way to make income in Internet.

Go to the link below to learn more:

 best regards,

Carole Stacy
The program is hosted by a company that has been affiliated with several known scams in the past.

Ownership of the program is hidden behind the hosting company.

The program was launched less than two months ago.

The program has an excessively high payout of $300.00 which would make me question it right off the bat.

The front page has so many errors on it that its totally laughable
Turn your valuable web site traffic into money. Join our affiliate program. We offer the most pay-per-click rate to help maximize your revenue stream.
Imagine running of a something that never failed to provide you with cash-flow. A never ending income generator, a system so amazingly profitable that you never had to work for a boss ever again! 
Watch that your money grow
"We offer the most pay per click rate" The most, is that highest, lowest, what? Is that in dollars, or shekels, or rubles, or yen? What exactly do they offer?  Thats just clear as mud.

Imagine running of a something? Yeah imagine running an  site that pays you $780.00 per day without investing a penny? If it sounds too good to be true, 99% of the time it is too good to be true.

"Watch that your money grow" Watch your money grow is the correct phrase.

"Web site" It's normally spelled website but now I'm just being picky. LOL!!

The copy and paste of the advertising blurb (by Carole) from the site itself also shows that the owner of this program does not have a clear grasp of the English language.

While this in and of itself does not make the program a scam, when combined with unrealistic earnings promises, a hidden owner, a doctored or fake proof of income *see below* and no need to invest...........I'd run away from this program as fast as my little feet would carry me

This program shows a proof of income--a bank statement--supposedly submitted by an affiliate.

The major problem with that supposed bank statement is that all of the payments shown are dated anywhere from 7 1/2 months to 7 days  before this program was even launched.

Another problem with that supposed bank statement is that there is no proof provided that ANY of those payments came from any specific program (including this one).
In addition, Carole states in an admin message at Joint Venture that this program is affiliated with Google.

Well if that is true (and the only thing I see on the front page is a link to translate the page using Google Translate), I would not be running links to it on any incentive site as Google quite literally hates incentive sites to the point of booting people for even mentioning them much less promoting them or advertising Google Ad Sense ads on them.

I run Google Ad Sense ads on my other blog and I don't even mention incentive sites on that blog because of Google's attitudes towards them
