There are many legitimate autosurfs out there, and today I’m here to warn you about one that’s not. The site is called “SurfJunky.” At first glance, the site looks real, legitimate, well organized and frequented. Their terms, FAQ, and instructions all match legal autosurfs. Unlike the others, though, their payouts seem too good to be true, and are. SJ promises a minimum of $0.45 an hour. Added up, if someone were to surf for a month, this means they would theoretically earn $324. Nobody gets that rich that easily.

I myself, even after seeing many scam reports, decided to sign up for the site. After a few days of leaving their browser window up when I was idle, I tried logging in. As all of the scam reports had predicted, my account was banned. There is not a single user online who has a proof of payment, account after account is banned as soon as they near the $25 payout mark. The worst thing is, the site is making huge commissions as you waste your time browsing their ads.

Still not convinced? After the break I have compiled proof from around the web as to how SJ paying out is impossible.

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

These are the ACTUAL rates obtained from the surfjunky.com website
http://www.surfjunky.com/advertising/index.php
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.

The domain surfjunky.com is registered to “Primo Creations”

The company offers a phone number, feel free to call them at 555-555-5555.

Many of you may have heard of AutoSurf.biz, which was recently sold. By guess what “company”? Primo Creations. Why? Probably because the “company” owed too much money and decided to take a run for it.

Now some of you may have read the Terms of Service, some regular user wouldn’t read this, because it’s boring and filled with useless information, I totally understand you

But what I have found out, is that he just took the Terms of Service from another site and used it as his/her own. A real company would not do this, they’d get a lawyer and write up their own ToS. To see this for yourself, do a quick search on google.com with this exact text: “By signing up and actively using the” (which was taken from the first line of surfjunky.com’s ToS)

If you’re still not convinced, feel free to google “surfjunky scam” and read the numerous reports by scammed users. I find it funny that they can’t even spell the word “junkie” right…

    wow.. Look like you have spent a lot of time researching this. Great thanks!

    I just don’t believe deal like that. “Too good to be true”. Just wondering if those advertiser are dump or stupid? Why are they spending money on those useless sites.

    Thanks anyway!
