Here's an interesting site which pays you to surf the web! I've been using this to pay for my internet connection for a while now, it's well worth a look.

What you don't know is that you have to surf the sites that they list...not just the ones you normally do......

Not if you use a seperate broswer, like opera. Then you can have it running in the background and surf as per usual via a seperate browser.

You've been using it to pay your internet connection? That's pretty hilarious. Why do I have a strong feeling you're lying?

Oh and here is something interesting I found on another site...

How do you know it is a scam?

Well first off the mathematics behind the site are simply impossible. The site charges advertisers using the following pay schedule:

* 100,000 Visitors - $29.95
* 250,000 Visitors - $59.95
* 500,000 Visitors - $99.95
* 1,000,000 Visitors - $189.95

Let’s just start with the minimum amount of 100,000 visits for about $30.00. So that means an advertiser is paying approximately $0.0003 per visit... right? ($30/100 000)

Now a member of surfjunky.com gets paid $0.45 per hour of surfing. The member can surf a maximum of 120 pages per hour (Each page must be viewed for 30 seconds, no multiple windows are allowed. So that is 2 pages per minute, 60 minutes per hour, which equals 120 visits per hour MAX)

Are you still following? Good!

Now go back to our advertising rate of $0.0003 per visit. Multiply this by 120 visits. That means that for 120 visits to his/her website a webmaster is paying ONLY $0.036.

So the advertiser is paying $0.036, or just under four cents, for every 120 visitors to his/her website. However, surfjunky.com is suppose to be paying its members $0.45, or 45 cents, per 120 pages visited.

That means either, 1) surfjunky.com is the worst business in the world and is planning on taking a loss $0.414 or 1250% for every hour a visitor surfs or 2) surfjunky.com is a scam site that never intends on paying its users.

To further amplify this loss consider this. Once a user reaches the minimum $25 payout, surfjunky.com has only made $1.99 from that user (they make $0.036 per hour times 55.5 hours to reach payout of $25). So surfjunky.com is actually taking a loss of $23.01 per payout.

So with a loss of $23 per user. Multiplied by approximately 500,000 registered users at last count, surfjunky.com will be recording a loss of $11,500,000 once members reach payout.

Now I don’t want to seem to be over exaggerating because it hurts my credibility. So let’s assume only 1 in 10... no 1 in 100... no wait 1 in 1000 users actually make it to payout without cheating, getting bored and stopping, etc. The company will still be taking a loss of $15,000 each payout cycle. That is a loss of $15,000 EACH and EVERY month!

So even if surfjunky.com fully intends on paying all users, and does not want to be a scam, the fact of the matter is paying them is impossible! It just won’t happen! They will go bankrupt before 1 payout is made

More Scam Proof

The following websites go into detail about the surfjunky.com scam, including who may be behind it, previous scams pulled by the same individual, etc.

Who's going to keep track of the number of people visiting the site and who is responsible for crediting your account?

Thanks but I will stick to my job for paying the internet connections

I'd be worried about being Hacked. It seems a small reward to put yourself in danger of identity theft or being hacked in some way.
