Company: GetPaidToTry.com Complaint
Andy Gold owes me $100. Yet he claims I violated his
Terms of Memberhsip (bu jinign aprogram twice, which
of course I never did), so he owes me nothing, that I
owe him, yet he never kicked me out, and never asked
for money back. He did continue sending me e-mails
that I clicked for account money, and joined programs.
Never intending to pay me. and he's wya too
interested in my perosnal info, but won'tt ell me why.
I believe Andy Gold of getpaidtotry.com has been
defrauding his affiliates out of money meant to pay
members. Firts off, as several complained at
http://www.surveypolice.com/company.php?id=141, he and
his program don't pay. Now get this. Along with
another lie, that I joined a program twice which I
never did, Andy claims: "Please keep in mind however,
that since your membership started with getpaidtotry,
you already violated the terms of our membership so
there is no issue of any money being owed to you. In
reality, you owe use (sp)money. Members are never
allowed to sign up for the same offer more than once
something which you did."
Let's look at this. From the start, I violated the
terms of membership (Something never once stated to
me). Therefore, I don't get my money. Now ignoring
his I owe him money lie (which he ahs yet to ask for.
What reality is he even in? Up his butt?), think
about it. He never once said anything, never canceled
my membership, and instead let me earn up to $40 in
clicks, and some $60 (then stopped payments, so no $60
for me) from joining various programs offered through
Programs paying him for members, which he then uses to
pay out the members who join. Andy Gold, owner of
GetPaidtoTry, fully admits to using me to generate
money from the companies that he's supposed to use to
pay me for my time/membership, with no intention of
paying me ever (I violated TOM, he owes me no money,
still I'm e-mailed offers which I click/join,
unknowingly earning money I'll never get). Andy Gold
obviously pocketed my earnings, and my check request,
and program earnings Mar - May 2005. Money rightfully
mine, and which he agreed via his program to pay me
for my surfing. Add to it the countless others he's
done this to (as Survey Police shows
http://www.surveypolice.com/company.php?id=141 ), and
that, is clearly Fraud. He used me (and others)
unknowingly to take money from affiliate programs
using GetPaidToTry, for my/our clicks/membership, and
never paid me/us for it, and refueses to send me my
check (or mention squat about violations of TOM.)
Now, that cannot be legal (even if not Faud but
Theft from me, members and the affiliate companies
certainly). Here's part of an e-mail from Dec sent to
me in an attempt to take money from companies by
pretending to pay me (No I didn't join):

If I violated his TOM,a nd he owes me nothing, then
why am I getting e-mail offers toe arn money (he'll
never pay me?) because he's sitll paid if I join,
regardless of if he pays me as he agreed to.)
He also insists I take this up with him through the
BBB (several tiems), which I did previosuly and they
The Better Business Bureau has attempted to present
your complaint to Get Paid to Try in an attempt to
resolve this matter to your mutual satisfaction.
Unfortunately, despite our efforts to achieve a
mutually satisfactory resolution of this matter, we
have received no response to your complaint. We have
attempted to contact Get Paid to Try through written
correspondence twice on your behalf. We have also
contact this firm by telephone. Despite such repeated
efforts, we are compelled to close this matter in our
files. This does not minimize the importance of your
concerns to you, nor is it any reflection upon the
validity of your dispute. We wish to provide you with
prompt notification, as you may wish to pursue this
matter through an alternative resource.
The Better Business Bureau is a private, nonprofit
organization without the powers of an enforcement
agency; as such, we cannot compel a business to grant
you a particular settlement or to respond to your
complaint. BBB mediation is a voluntary process
requiring the good faith and willing participation of
both parties to a dispute. A central function of the
dispute resolution process is to enhance communication
between the parties and, in so doing, foster a greater
contradictory positions. Utilizing such efforts, we
often attain a mutually satisfactory resolution to
disputes brought to our attention; not all matters,
however, achieve such an outcome.
Please be advised that this firm’s failure to respond
to your complaint will be reflected in its BBB record.
Accordingly, we will report that this firm has an
unanswered complaint to consumers, businesses, banks,
government officials, and members of the press who
inquire about them.
In addition, firms failing to answer even one such
complaint will generally receive an unsatisfactory
rating, the Bureau’s lowest mark.
Your experience may, therefore, alert other consumers
information through the BBB.
BBB contacted the company by phone, but the phone
number has been disconnected and the business fails to
respond to our complaints.
Thank you for contacting the Better Business Bureau.
We hope that we may be of assistance in the future.
BBB Serving Metropolitan New York"
So, I guess they're lying to me then (they're not
lying to me.)
NOw, why would Andy Gold constantly mention the BBB,
when her efuses to respond, and is not required? To
avoid any compalints from memebrs. He ignores, and we
cna't pursue outside the BBB which failed. he also
suggests leglaa ction. Looks like it's class action
lawsuit time, friends.
Andy Gold must be stopped, all monies owed paid out,
GetPaidToTry shut down, and I want the money he made
off of me defrauding the sites. Please help put a
stop to his crimes (and lies.) I don't like being
refused money because of imaginary TOM vilations,
joining for money, or double joinings. Do you?
Any lawyers wanting to help with a class action
lawsuit, let me know. I can't afford to do this
myself. Andy Gold stole my money. but this would be
a great goodwill, pro bono case (and we can always
tipulate Andy pays our legal fees).
