Paybox.me - The 'Mystery' Payment Processing Company
Admission to my own personal guilt in not sharing this business with internet folk earlier, I decided to bring to you a bit of 'eye candy', with a huge side order of 'red flag' to boot. Today, I will show you Paybox.me, a mysterious company making search engine progress, using folks for their marketing efforts, and why you shouldn't deal with them.
This company, a payment processing venture that aims to be the 'biggest processing company on the internet', remains in total secrecy from all of its 270,000 users. Searching Whois yields a Webguard, which blocks all of their user information from being visible. If I was anything of an aspiring future company, I would not want to hide myself from potential investors, buyers, or agencies that may help me grow.
Moreover, this company cannot be reached via email. We know of only 2 known emails that work (we tried all @paybox.me possibilities) - admin@ and news@. Of course, you will not get replies from them. And, they block commentary on their website blog posts. No customer service. Yet somehow, they can afford to place $20 a day in the accounts of 270,000 active users. Since their website doesn't say a thing about 'Paybox Currency' or 'Paybox Bucks', this company is claiming a world known currency by giving out Dollars. Wish I had money like that to share so flagrantly.
They plan to soon 'Open The Box' by offering digital products from merchants that - you guessed it - are invisible. Website currently has a voting mechanism where you can vote where to spend this Paybox balance you have, with some of their top vote draws being eBay, Amazon, Walmart and Tiger Direct. Not sure about you, but I will not accept the business from a company that cannot be identified, in a currency that they claim to be 'autonomous'.Continued on the next page
