My work on Bubblews was in vain

I have worked hard for more than 2 years on Bubblews, writing articles everyday, connecting with people, commenting posts and now, all that work was in vain.

They are not proceeding payments before 11th of November. And I had 5 payments before that date to be received. One of them redeemed on the 10th. Is this fair?

I have already sent them an e-mail but I think that I won't get anywhere.

And do you know why this is happening? Not because Bubblews was a scam. If it was, it wouldn't have paid to its members for 2 years. Just because we had too many people trying to sabotage the system. And we are paying because of them!

Bubblews wasn't a scam in the beginning but what got them to the position they are in now are the spammers. They did not have a proper set up for anything and that is why they have failed. Then they were least bothered.

Hi, I have been on Bubblews for a year and it is a shame as it was a wonderful site. I enjoy writing so am lucky to find this site. Have a great night.

I just hope I could have my money back.

I do not see why the innocent ones have to pay for the mistake of the admin at bubblews. it was up to them to setup mechanisms to curb the vice. And after all, the advertisers paid them, so where is the money going. I think the spammers card is just a scapegoat to the bigger issue. It spells spam to me.

If you are really lucky, then you will get your money or else they won't pay. I think they love making people miserable.

fufurinha wrote on January 2, 2015, 4:47 AM

I almost sure that I have lost 300 dollars.

fufurinha wrote on January 2, 2015, 4:47 AM

Well, we can not do anything about it. Sadly.

Jaffy wrote on January 2, 2015, 4:50 AM

Oh I really feel for you. I lost about $270 over there. They kept on making lame excuses not to pay me. Just hate them. But I still hope you get paid.

Not entirely in vain. I'm sure we all learned a lesson or two from Bubblews. For example, redeem as soon as you can and never wait until the amount is too high, then you will have more to lose. Also, don't put all your eggs in one basket.

fufurinha wrote on January 2, 2015, 5:19 AM

It was the same redeeming with a lot or few money. I won't receive it anyway.

Shadi wrote on January 2, 2015, 5:27 AM

What I mean is that losing 50$ is less painful than losing 300$

fufurinha wrote on January 2, 2015, 5:45 AM

I had 5 payments. That is whats sums up almost 300 dollars.

I also lost my money on bubblew

fufurinha I don't think blaming it all on the scammers/plagiarizers is correct. Bubblews staff and management is 90% responsible of this debacle. They were not responsive enought to stop the problems at the beginning. And on top of that were arrogant enough to threath people to delete they accounts if asked about missed payments, etc.

We all have lost money there, but more than money we were treated unfairly and were lied to. That's unacceptable. Time to move on and take Persona Paper to new heights! Have a great 2015!

Let's see what Persona Paper brings me...

Porcospino wrote on January 2, 2015, 6:44 AM

Bubblews does have problems with scammers and plagiarizers, but it is their site and it is their responsibility to solve those problems. If there are few employees and many scammers it can be a challenge to catch all of the scammers, but the members aren't responsible for the situation and the members shouldn't be punished because Bubblews doesn't know how to run a site.

MakeMoneyOnline wrote on January 2, 2015, 7:04 AM

Well, true that the scammers and spammers were working them hard, but since they didn't pay them anyway I don't see it as such a great problem. OK, the extra work they had to put in to delete the spam posts did set them back a little but not paying honest members... I call them scammers for that.

I have heard rumours that Bubblews is basically bankrupt and won't exist by the end of this year. Whether this becomes a reality remains to be seen. Meanwhile, keep posting on Persona Paper.

fufurinha wrote on January 2, 2015, 7:34 AM

Let's wait and see. Of course I will dedicate my time now to PP

True, those cheats really spoil the market for all of us.

For a moment there, I thought I was on bubblews lol. This is Persona Paper right? I am messing with you, I read the posts and all the comments. There is so much I could say, but I agree with everyone of you. Only thing though, I can't call Bubblews a scam, It's a genuine site, sadly now overrun with scammers and bad management and inadequate staff doesn't help. They have too much to do and are too lazy to do it. Let's hope Persona Paper has a better scam detection and deletion system; for I promise you, the same way we all; in one wide sweep came over to Persona Paper, the scammers and plagiarists are coming too. Hopefully also, Persona Paper will be able to manage the work that comes with managing a growing site like this. For with every thing, when it takes off, it takes on a life of its own, and you have to grow with it, let it out grow you or effectively manage its growth. Happy to be here though. Also, Now I know you were all on bubblews as well. Great, I am good company.

Hopefully good things, and lots of opportunities to reconnect from valued connections from the other site!

MaeLou wrote on January 2, 2015, 9:32 AM

Agreed that Bubblews is mostly to blame and not the scammers. I've reported a TON of people in the past for plagiarism and spamming and they never bothered to delete those members.

RikRavado wrote on January 2, 2015, 12:36 PM

Arvind has posted on Bubblews again today. I don't think he is a cheat but ignorance (of business, particulalry cash flow) is no excuse for agreeing to pay money that he now says never existed!

fufurinha wrote on January 2, 2015, 12:44 PM

I will check his post then. Thank you :)

What a shame, I was very cross because I redeemed on the 12th Nov and they docked me $50 I expect I will still go on occasionally as I still have friends there . I bubbled for nearly two years it is very disappointing considering I had never had a payment refused in all that time.

fufurinha wrote on January 2, 2015, 2:03 PM

And have you received that one? From 12th Nov?

Kasman wrote on January 2, 2015, 2:29 PM

RikRavado - I have come from Bubble Ooze and have read his post - not impressed at all! I then spent about a hour interacting and earned just 4 cents. It is now more profitable to spend time on Persona Paper (not that that's the reason I'm here).

WordChazer wrote on January 2, 2015, 4:10 PM

55% of the traffic on the other site comes from India. The site is also ranked in the top 300 for popularity in the Philippines, both stats according to Neither country pays well in terms of advertising revenue, and a dollar there goes a lot further than it does in Europe. That's the problem. I'm waiting to see what happens and whether I will eventually get to $50 again. If the site folds before then, we'll all be seeing 404 error messages on our posts so they could save us a lot of trouble deleting things so long as we have grabbed copies beforehand.

peachpurple wrote on January 3, 2015, 3:49 AM

same here, i have lost $220 there, excluding 2013 payments, if that includes, it will be $400 ! ANyway, just leave it as a lesson to learn. Persona paper should be better

FreyaYuki wrote on January 3, 2015, 8:26 AM

I feel your pain. Also lost a redemption there and have heard of many others who have experienced the same thing :( . Wonder if there is anything that can be done about this? Sure, there were spammers and cheaters there but not everyone is like that. The good and honest people shouldn't be made to pay for the sins of the bad people. :(
