FamilyClix Review – Is it a Scam? | Not Recommended

Warning – BearBux.com is another site from the same admin. For more details, you can read the Bearbux review.


Update: Shortly after we published this review and the Bearbux review, the admin commented on our facebook page using foul language and threatening us. Can’t handle the truth, huh?

Now imagine, few minutes after that, he replaced the affiliate links of the self-sponsored ClickBank ads on Familyclix. Which only proves that he is the owner of Familyclix. Initially these ads were showing the affiliate username ‘balkanika’ which is the Golden Group admin username, now these ads are showing the affiliate name ‘familyclix’. Since I knew he was going to remove the ads once we publish this review, I captured video proofs as well.

The video below shows self-sponsored ClickBank ad on Goldenclix. The Clickbank affiliate link is encrypted, however if you just copy the ClickBank hop link and paste it in your browser, the affiliate username associated with the Clickbank account will be shown. That’s what we did as you can see in the video. The affiliate username is ‘balkanika’. See for yourself.

The next video shows admin self-sponsored ClickBank ad on Familyclix also with the affiliate username ‘balkanika’. Which proves that Goldenclix and Familyclix are connected, both sites are showing self-sponsored admin’s ads with the same affiliate username. Obviously, both sites are owned by the same admin.


FamilyClix.com is the another site from the dubious Golden Group network (review here), which consist of other scam sites such as Goldenclix.com, Silverclix.com, Adzpot.org, Clixdo.com and the closed scam site Balkanikaclix.com. Proofs attached below.

Reasons why you should avoid using Familyclix.com:

Ties to other Scam Sites – The Golden Group is a scam network. Balkanikaclix has been closed down, Clixdo and Adzpot are no longer paying, there are no new payments for almost 2 months, Goldenclix and Silverclix are poorly managed sites by an admin who doesn’t have a clue how to run a successful long-standing PTC and must deliberately suspend thousands of users to avoid paying them in order to keep his collapsing sites alive by stealing money from members that have rightfully earned. Since the Golden Group sites have ruined reputation, the admin have to hide behind fake names when opening new sites. Because if people knew that he opened new sites, most of them will keep away from his sites.

He can lie, but the proofs don’t lie. This admin very often is using the username ‘balkanikaclix’ or ‘balkanika’ on many other affiliate programs. The usernames comes from his first scam site Balkanikaclix.com which is no longer online, it was improperly closed without paying off the debt. Now let’s take a look at the affiliate links for the ClickBank products he promotes with the self-sponsored ads on Familyclix.

The ClickBank affiliate link from the screenshot above is encrypted. If you just copy the ClickBank hop link and paste it in your browser, the affiliate username associated with the ClickBank account will be shown. Here is the encrypted hop link from FamilyClix http://c648e7jhn0o8q04j7qrpi26qdj.hop.clickbank.net, it is exactly the same link as on the screenshot above, after visiting this link click the yellow “Add to Cart” button, you will be redirected to a ClickBank Secure Payment Form page, scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see the affiliate username displayed there. It says [ affiliate = balkanika ] as you can see on the screenshot below.

That is the ClickBank username of the Golden Group admin, also used on his other sites, for instance on Goldenclix too.

The ClickBank affiliate link from the screenshot above is also encrypted, that’s why you don’t see the username ‘balkanika’. Just copy/paste the ClickBank hop link in your browser, the affiliate username will be shown. Here is the encrypted hop link from Goldenclix http://95ca54ddv3v6m2594di7fkq6-h.hop.clickbank.net/, the same link as on the screenshot above. After clicking it you will see the username ‘balkanika’ in the URL in your address bar. This proves that Goldenclix and Famyliclix are connected, both sites are showing self-sponsored admin’s ads with the same affiliate username.
Also the same ClickBank affiliate username ‘balkanika’ appears in the self-sponsored ads on Bearbux, which is another new site from the same admin.

Moreover, the same domain name servers are being used on Famyliclix and other sites from the Golden Group network, including the latest site Bearbux.

As per the welcome message posted on the Familyclix forum, there are 2 admins, ‘Juan’ and ‘Maria’ from the Philippines (let’s not forget the Golden Group admin lives in the Philippines for the last couple of months). Let’s take a look at their avatars, which are taken from the web and don’t belong to these two admins.

The avatar of ‘Maria’ is from Erich Gonzales, a Filipina actress, and Juan’s avatar is from fictional tv character Juan Dela Cruz. Just to let you know that the avatars are not from the real admins.

Another similarity with the Golden Group sites, at the moment Familyclix runs a promo deal for 6 months upgrade, users will get 300 rented referrals and free advertising credits. This is the same promo held on Goldenclix and Silverclix few months ago.

Just to show you with what kind of con-artist you are dealing with, the admin is also registered as a member on Familyclix, under his real username ‘Balkannikaclix’. He promotes Familyclix on his other sites, Goldenclix and Silverclix.

Of course he use referral link to avoid suspicion, without referral link would be too obvious that he owns Familyclix. And there is another much stronger reason, he compete against other members in the referral contests. At his very own site! Sure, why not, why to pay someone else the reward for the first place in the contest when the admin himself can win the contest.

He even have payment proofs and stats threads on the forum.
“Wow, payment within 30 minutes!! Thank you admin!!” (admin thanks himself, hilarious!) http://www.familyclix.com/forum.php?topic=280
He also have his own stats thread in which he is explaining you in details how the bot referrals are great at Familyclix and he suggest you to extend your RR to 365/720 days. What a cheap trick to lure people in.

So he have two accounts on Familyclix, one admin account and a ‘regular’ member account. Since he is known for banning people without a reason at all, giving members some lame excuses about TOS violations, now he should ban himself too, both of his accounts due to multi-account creation. Because you know, he is always acting in accordance with the TOS.


Familyclix Review – Summary

Familyclix is owned by the GoldenClix admin, no doubt about that. He have to lie about who he really is because he have zero credibility. He have to hide his bad history and record of running scam sites so he could continue with his scamming tactic. I would advise to stay away from Familyclix since it is owned by admin involved into other scam sites. Familyclix has been placed on the Not Recommended list. You have been warned.

  1. FamilyClix is a site that falls in between ‘legit’ and ‘not pay’ status.
    I joined FamilyClix at the beginning of 2016. After clicking for months I left FamilyClix because I couldn’t reach the minimum Cashout balance.
    Now FamilyClix have added many offer walls. I again logged into FamilyClix in this year and earned the minimum cashout amount after completing lot of offers. I received my Payment.
    So, I have to say that, in 2017 it is legit. After looking around the internet I found that FamilyClix has a bad reputation on the internet. Now, I’m also doubtful about the site that they pay only selective members.
