Do you have money that Bubblews did not pay you?

Fortunately, it didn't happen to me. I eventually got all the redemptions I requested. However, I'm aware of a number of people that were owed several redemptions. Bubblews recently announced a new pay rate and said that past unpaid redemptions would not be made. Frankly, the excuses seemed bogus, like too much fraud and the money was never really there. The thing is, they induced people to write by promising to pay and reaped the rewards of that writing through click revenue.

There's a web site out there that you can use to report internet fraud. It is the Internet Crime Center and co-sponsored by the FBI.

The link is:

I encourage anybody for whom Bubblews reneged on a redemption to report them.

Like you I was one of the lucky ones. i only lost 25c on the payment i have pending. It's so odd that I lost virtually nothing while other lost out big time.

They didn't pay and because I refused to be treated as beggar, I didn't ask for it and I deleted all my posts. Thank you for the link I will check it out later.

I had one missing payment from back in August of about $50 that now will never be paid. I had a pending redemption that was slashed by about 50 percent. I consider myself lucky, because many have lost way more than I have.

I lost a $127 redemption on bubblews thanks to their changes. That was the last straw for me. Was so discouraged and upset, so it was nice when my friend directed me here instead.

I only lost $18, but still it upset me none the less. I do not plan to report them however.

I lost about $40 from the payment that is currently pending. If I even get the $49 that is left in February, I'll be surprised.

I had $75 that they never paid, I waited for over a year for them to get it straightened out. They never contacted me saying i broke any rules and I hadn't changed how I did anything when I did get paid. Granted I had not been active lately because of the non-payment thing but after all this hit the fan, I deleted all of my posts, I was not going to allow them to make more money off of me and not get anything in return.

For me, they reduced the amount that I had been waiting for. They still owe me $110, but they just deleted my account, so I'm sure I will never see it. They deleted me because I spoke my mind about them.

I have a pending request that hasn't been paid yet amounting to $62. I haven't visited the site so this is the first time I've read about the site out rightly saying that they won't be paying the requested redemptions. That is so unfair to the writers who spent lots of time and effort writing in that site.

I have one pending redemption that was cut by 60%, so yes I am looking into a number of possible ways to resolve the matter...

By now , you probably know that Bubblews died an no longer exists. It is sad because it had great potential, but was led by dim wits who didn't know what they were doing.
