Update: TviPtc is no longer online, it was closed down and it will be remembered as a scam. Any future sites from the same owner will be not recommended.
Old Review for Reference:
TviPtc is a bux site that belongs to the large controversial Infinity Group network which is managed by same person. There were a lot of issues and problems in the past on all sites from this group which contributed for its poor reputation among PTC users. In this review, we will point out few indicators why you should keep away from this site.
Reasons why you should avoid using TviPtc.com:
Big Network – Instability – Besides TviPtc, the following sites belongs to this network: Infinitybux.com, BuxSecure.com, Powerfulbux.com, Foreverbux.com, BuxUnleashed.com. Using a large sample of PTC Sites, we find that big PTC networks/multiple clone sites owned by same person tend to collapse, or if nothing else, they are not stable as a single sustainable PTC Site can be. We have seen that owners find it difficult to handle even two PTC sites. There are a lot of examples for failed clone “sister” ptc sites. On the other hand, there are few exceptions too.
The question is why some PTC sites owners keep on opening sites one after another? We believe the main reason for this is the deficiency in revenue, so the simplest solution that site owners find is to open another site which will immediately bring money from new investments and in the short run, they will be able to pay members on the other sites within the network. But what happens in the long run? As the time goes on, the entire network will become unstable, it will be hard to attract advertisers that are willing to advertise on the same clone sites to the same members, revenues will drop, investors will start making profits but the network would not be able to pay them all. There are many examples of sites which were using this “multiple sites” practice that ended up scamming their members.
Characteristics of a Ponzi Scheme – Whenever this network did not generate enough revenue, the owner was opening sites one after another. TviPtc was the second site from this network. Why he was opening new sites? We believe the main reason was to pay what he owed to members on his older sites with the money gained from investments on the newly opened site. This is not how a PTC site should operate. The concept of real PTC is to connect advertisers with customers. Which means a PTC requires advertising revenues so that it would be able to share the revenue with the members.
Clearly, TviPtc operates more or less as a ponzi scheme. With little or no legitimate earnings, the ponzi schemes require a consistent cash flow from new investors to continue. Ponzi schemes tend to collapse when it becomes difficult to recruit new investors or when a large number of investors ask to cashout. That’s what happened with TviPtc and therefore they started to use bad business practices, frequently changing the terms, converting pending payments to membership upgrade, changing the payout policy and introducing conditions to make it harder for members to qualify for payout.
Bad History – TviPtc was not paying according to their terms and there were long payment delays, issues with payment processors, raising minimum payout, converting pending cashouts to account upgrades etc. Therefore, many members left the site and their accounts were autosuspended/deleted due to inactivity. Is this the right way to clear the debt to members? Certainly, it is not. If a member requested a payment, then pay him, don’t upgrade his account if no one requested you to do so.
Without going into much details, just to name a few of the bad business practices this network was using:
– Suspending accounts of big earners with a lot of direct referrals, then selling their direct referrals to other members. Changing Terms of Service so they can “legally” suspend users accounts for “breaking” the new points of the terms. Charging $25 restoral fee to remove the suspension.
– Charging $100 for support tickets, later the Support System was removed entierly. If you can’t handle 6 sites, then do not open them in the first place.
– Converting pending cashouts to membership upgrade, in other words, not paying what members have rightfully earned.
– Filtering posts and removing forum threads to hide complaints and negative feedback. Later the forum was removed.
Complaints and negative feedback – There are a lot of complaints all over the internet about the Infinity Group network. On the links below are listed some places over the web where you can read other members opinion about TviPTC:

TviPtc Review – Conclusion:
We would not recommend using TviPTC, nor any other program from the same network. The site is no longer paying. The administration of this network have already proven that they can hardly manage 6 bux sites. Don’t waste your time and effort there. TviPTC certainly is not a legitimate place to earn money online.
