SliceThePie: Is It Scam Or Legit?! I'm Sorry To Tell You This But...
SliceThePie is a site launched and created to meet the needs of new and aspiring musicians into getting feed backs about their work and songs by normal listeners - the public- the feed backs should include detailed opinions about what the reviewer thinks of the song.
The idea of this is simply fresh and exciting and I'm sure that a lot of people just loved it and joined, it's a win to win website so no body would be actually wasting no time, the artist gets advice on how he/she can improve his/her songs and the reviewers gets a specific amount of cents each time he/she reviews a full detailed review about a certain song and rate it.
What's Not Allowed
They would never allow reviewers to paste anything on the writing box so don't you think you can ever copy and paste anything.
They would warn you if you write too similar reviews and use the same words and adjectives over and over again.
They would control how you might rate songs according to your review.
Is It Legit Or Scam?
Now this is the real question and that's why this whole article exists in the first place, I'm so sorry to tell you my friends that this site is a total scam!
First, my experience with this site was negative and I'll write a full detailed explanation about it right after stating what other people also reviewed this site.
A lot of people got their accounts closed right after clicking the buttons for getting cash-outs.
A lot of people raise a certain amount of money on the site and that would be after writing at least 15 to 30 reviews, they get a sudden newsletter in their hotmail/google mails stating any excuse just so the owner of the site would never have to pay the reviewers a penny.
Some of these excuses include:
- Most of your reviews are similar, your account got suspended. - and they would tell you this when you have at least written them about 30 reviews-
- We have made our site available to only specific countries and we are sorry to see you go as the country in which you're living in is not one of the countries that we do not support anymore.
-English grammar/vocab is not accepted by our staff and if you're not going to improve it then you're account will be closed - and they would send you this after you write at least 40 reviews- so tell me, if the staff didn't like the English grammar or vocabulary then why didn't they notify the reviewer about this issue right before getting reviews from him/her and wasting his/her time?
And many many other more negative feed backs, if you got to know this site by a chance reading about online jobs and things then please be careful and never join it! or join at your own risk because you will be sooner or later getting the same negative experience with the site.
My Personal Experience With this site
So I joined this site about 3 months ago, I've written a lot of long,different and organized reviews about at least 25 songs - that's what I remember- I used to get at least $0.05 per song review+rating and it was very rare for me to get above the $0.10.
Once the site recognized me as an active user, they started sending me many songs to my inbox to review them and I did review almost all of them then I suddenly stopped being too much active there because it's sometimes really tiring to think of new words and adjectives to write and make a good organized and detailed review about a specific song mentioning and talking about the beats, lyrics , the singer's voice and talent, how did you like the song, what about the harmonies, the melody, the sounds of the instruments and all of the other things that are related so I opened my account again within the next 4 days to find no songs at all in my inbox so I closed and opened in the next two days, I found one song to review at that day so I did write a review, then came another day where I was only sent one song to review so I realized that the staff stopped sending me too much songs because of my reduced activity in the site so that was fine because I wasn't actually too much satisfied and impressed with how much you can earn by reviewing a song, I mean you can really do that on other sites by reviewing products and things you've used and you would earn at least 2$ per each review, I stumbled into many legit sites before which offer reviewers such amounts of money so please stay away from this scum site.
Don't waste your time!
It's A Scam!
One week passed until I checked my mail list to find an email from SliceThePie which apologized to see me go, I opened it while wondering " why are they saying we're sorry to see you leave, I did not deactivate my account or anything" so here's what they said in the email:
" We regret to inform you that due to a focus in commercialising Slicethepie and its products in certain territories, we can no longer allow access to the Slicethepie site from some areas. As you are situated in one of these areas, it will not be possible for you to gain access to the site at this time.
We appreciate that this may be frustrating, but rest assured we anticipate that in the future Slicethepie will be made available worldwide once again. We'd like to thank you for your understanding and support to date.
Your Slicethepie balance will remain in your account and will be available if and when we re-open the site globally in the future. We have your email address and will notify you should Slicethepie become available in your territory again.
The Slicethepie Team "
They will never notify me because they have just made this as an excuse to suspend my account so that the admin won't have to pay any pennies for most of the reviewers, and if the admin would ever pay the reviewers then it would be just to get some of them standing by his/her side so they would write positive reviews about the site and its service, please understand that the payment can be also selective so why would you want to waste your time on a suspicious site?
I'm not the only one who had a negative experience with this site, there are million of other victims who have had the same experiences, please search Google or any other search engines to find out more reviews about the site, I know that one review or topic won't get you convinced so decide by yourself, read other reviews and or check the site by yourself and you will come to the day in which you'll be realizing that this site is a total scam.
Please share your feed backs!
