I joined a free program about a year ago and put links out there.
I got busy with my real money makers and actually forgot about this.
Well today I was doing some email house cleaning and found the site. I thought I would login for giggles and I couldnt believe it.
I have 1800 refferals and had over $1200 bucks waiting for me. All I had to do was update tax info.
I did the tax stuff and now they say the payment will be in my paypal today.
Yes I have to say I am the biggest idiot around.
Was wondering if anyone here has done anything even remotely close to this.
Wow, if this is what it's like to be an idiot, I'll gladly be one. $1,200 is a lot of money! Congrats Dale!
Sorry, Dale, ya didn't get my vote - I've done worse. haha!
Thats awesome Dale.
I have done something very similar, although on nowhere near the same scale.
I changed my primary paypal account email about 2 months ago (I have 6 email accounts linked to it) and completely forgot that I did it. I changed it to one that I never, ever, check.
I have a few referrals for some cashback sites which pay out in mass pay (automated)
I logged into paypal yesterday out of chance and found about £30 ($45) in it, nowhere near your level of luck.... but still a bonus!
Somewhere on the net there is also a payment processor with £100 ($150) of my cash in it (as in, a paypal equivalent). I just cannot remember for the life of me which one it is. I have about 10 active email addresses which I could have used to sign up, and I know of about 20 payment processors......
Sporadically I try some to see if I can get in via the 'lost password route', but thats 200+ combinations. I have not got a clue where that £100 is..... rather frustrating!
gods, I'd love to be an idiot like you. I'm jealous. Congradulations!
Well My partner is going to be very happy as well. We split everything right down the middle
Is there room for a third person in that relationship?
lol, Im not even going to tell her at first. between the 15th and the end of the month we get several payments through Paypal so Im going to see how long it takes her to figure it out because she is usually the one sending me money lol.
What I want to know is the link to the free site I would love some of that dosh please.
Well I didnt write this post as a way to get referals and honestly would have to look for the referal link. Hell i dont even remember where I put my link to promote a year ago but my last sign up was on sept 13th so it is still being visited.
Okay I will not put the link here but if you send me an email I will see if I can find it but please dont ask me about what this is because I really have no clue.
Hire me, give me all your passwords and accounts and I will make sure your money is never forgotten about again lol
geez i wish one day I can screw up like that
Man you really got to be lucky... There is a shining star watching over you.. lol i wish i could forget something like this. Happy for you and do tell us how you plan to celebrate and spend it.
Wow, what a nice surprise! I've had it happen but only for $150ish. I wasn't complaining believe me. It certainly taught me not to leave loose ends out there because you just never know what has potential to take off.
Enjoy your windfall!
hey Misha i dont want to put a link on here. Actually just figured out the link a little while ago. I love the money but actually a little embarresed because I have no clue how I got so many referals and built up the cash.
Anyways if you want the link send me an email and i will get it to you.
Excellent. You've inspired me think about going back and look for some of sites in the trail of abandoned sites I have - one of these days.
