Earlier today I tried to log in to ptc-investigation.com, as I frequently do for reference purposes, only to discover that the site is no more. There is a lengthy message on the site from the owner explaining the reasons why.
Considering the site has had to recover from 3 DDOS attacks, and deal with negative comments from numerous disgruntled users on a day to day basis, I personally am not surprised the decision has been taken not to continue. It was a similar scenario with PTC Society several months ago – and whatever happened to GPT Boycott? These two sites were also a very useful reference point when checking out whether or not a PTC site was really as reputable as it claimed to be, but they are no longer in existence.
It seems such a shame that people who are genuinely trying to make a difference and help others make informed choices about GPT sites are pretty much forced into giving up because of the actions of the unscrupulous minority.
Overall the PTC industry has a pretty bad reputation for not paying members for all their hard work and/or closing their accounts without warning. Sure there are a handful of reputable sites where you can earn a steady stream of extra cash each day, but the vast majority are here today gone tomorrow. This was something that PTCI was not afraid to address with its brutally honest reviews and comments from existing members.
I know the site owner has taken a certain amount of criticism over the years – but it seemed to me that this was generally not because what was published was incorrect, but more because people did not want to believe what was being said. All too often loyal PTC members who have invested a great deal of time and effort will defend a failing site and ignore all the warning signs, purely because it’s easier than accepting it’s time to cut their losses and walk – as hard and unfair as this may be.
It is for all the above reasons and more that it is absolutely crucial that anyone considering joining a new PTC site does their homework before they invest any time (and certainly any money) in it.
