I don't want to add to the anxiety, but I have been scammed a couple times by premium members. and TR >10 is no guarantee, either. use the PayPal system to make it safer for cash trades. makes sure to tag the payment as a purchase rather than personal. it's worth paying the small PayPal fee. as you realize, the 45 day timeframe makes TraInn and other multi ref sites tougher to safeguard. it is frustrating.
there are many fast approving networks for 1 ref cashout. maybe lower profit, but I'm wondering if the "just pay less" advice applies here, as well?
I make it clear that I am paying competitive bonuses for staying GREEN, not just going GREEN for a day. that is what we all are paying for. I'm toying with the idea of paying the lower amount upfront and the bonus later when it actually is account APPROVAL, i.e., when my TraInn acct is submitted with all refs. honest traders won't mind that you have a trade stipulation that you "will file a PayPal claim for unresolved REDs". and I'm hoping it makes scammers think twice. they can't be certain you won't finish the site by 45 d.
good advice here. thanks, all! I'm going to check out those lower TraInn pay rates now.
