Can You Really Make Money with Surf for Cash Programs?

by: Ed Zivkovic

This article will focus on the Spedia Surf for Cash Program

I first came across spedia.net from my Alexa Toolbar as a result of visiting another non related site.

I was researching the latest ways to make money and spedia sounded good on the outside and I almost signed up in order to refer others into the program.

It all sounded too good to be true. Make money and Surf the web. The 5 level deep payout structure would ensure a decent income after some heavy promoting but my intuition told me to do a quick search for the term spedia scam and see if there was any negative spedia information around.

The results speak for themselves.

An abundance of warnings and people's negative experiences with spedia. The most common complaints seem to be that they don't pay. Other complains include system crashes, spam if you cancel your account, and claims that spedia cheat the system.

According to my keyword tool, people are even searching the term spedia cheat.

The Spedia Terms of Service

The Spedia Terms of Service can be found at http://www.spedia.net/sp_h_p_terms_of_service.htm. You must agree to these terms in order to participate in the Spedia Surf for Cash Program.

It is a very interesting page. Especially clause #16 whereby you agree not to participate in a Class Action Law Suit against Spedia but you are "allowed" to make a claim as an individual.

Personally, I cannot see any one person taking Spedia to court for 30 bucks which they did not pay. If you cannot participate in a Class Action whereby thousands of individuals can make a claim with one court case and with one attorney, what chance have you got to get your money?

Spedia and Surf+ Scumware

It seems that by downloading and installing the spediabar, you are also installing a Scumware program called Surf+. This is not a good thing. The Surf+ Scumware has the ability to change plain text words on any web page into hyperlinks. These hyperlinks are inserted without the permission of the webmaster in order to hijack you onto another site. More about how Surf+ works here.

Certain Spyware and Scumware programs will require special attention to be removed from your system because they cannot be removed by the regular add/remove programs method. If your computer has been infected with the Surf+ virus, you will need instructions to remove all invisible components from your system.

Better Ways to Make Money Online

It seems that even IF you find a legitimate Surf for Cash program, it will take ages to get even a $30 payout.

I still think it is much easier to either develop your own products or market other people's products and services via an affiliate program.
