What is "fanbox" and why am I getting emails from them saying I have earnings?


I did a little research, but did not find much. I keep getting emails saying that I have "earned $51.00 today", or whatever various amount. From what? I think fanbox.com is a scam. What do you think?

    That's odd because I haven't written anything for that sight. How can I possibly be getting paid? If they pay me some real money, then I might look into more.

    You may be correct about what is does and perhaps its not a scam.... but I never heard of them and I get dozens upon dozens of emails from them , telling me my account has $1500+ in it. I dont have an account with them, and it is well known they spam

    1st clue if a site is a SCAM: they want credit card or paypal info to validate identity, usually the last 'step' to sign up for 'free'....... you have to be pretty naive to not know this.

    There is a huge difference being barely legal, and ethical and honest. A lot of people are there for the social side. As for earning money. You have to bee really skilled at writing or advertising and such to earn. The average person will loose.

    And the BBB has them rated "A". Sounds like a big payoff to me.

    I would if I could. They deleted my account because I complained about their sleazy tactics. They even sent me and Hubpages a cease and desist on a hub I had titled "Things I don't like about Fanbox" Hubpages has disabled my article because of that

    You don't have to sign up to get emails. You are on someone's email list and they sent in your email to fanbox. The funds they say you have is on condition that take some action, credit card, paypal etc. What they do is not right. Barely legal
