NeoBux Scam

It would be great to make a significant amount of money just by clicking on a few online ads each day. This is the offer so many scams have made in the past. In most cases, the amount of money that you get is so limited it ends up being a total waste of time. Then they try to charge you to actually make a significant amount money. My subscribers have requested I take a look into NeoBux. This is what I have found.

NeoBux Scam Reality

NeoBux was first introduced on March 25th 2008 in a pre-registration phase. The official opening was shortly a month after, on April 30th. Its owner and admin is FERNANDO JOSÉ TEIXEIRA RATO.

NeoDev, Lda. is listed as the company behind NeoBux.  It is located in Portugal.

NeoDev, Lda. · R. Eng. Ferreira Dias, 924 – E10 · 4100-246 Porto · Portugal

The problem with NeoBux is that you make next to nothing for your time. You have to pay them money to have a chance at a significant amount of money.

Instead of using adpacks like the Traffic Monsoon scam which was recently shutdown by the SEC, NeoBux uses yearly memberships and rented ad clickers to get you to give them money.

Here is how the NeoBux scam works:

You signup for a free account and start clicking ads.  You make .001 – .005 per ad click. You can make a little over a $1 per day by clicking all of the available ads.  If you click your required 4 ads, you make .004 per day.

You make next to nothing for your time with NeoBux as a free member. They are wasting your time.

The next part of the scam is they convince you to purchase a gold membership to increase your earnings and allow you to recruit more people. With a gold membership you can rent more ad clickers.

You make a 1% commission from your direct referrals’ purchases.

You can only have direct referrals after you meet these conditions:

  • Been a member for at least 15 days
  • Have made at least 100 clicks

After these conditions are met, the direct referral you can have will be based first on the following limit:

  • Standard: 30
  • Pioneer: 60
  • Golden: 200
  • Golden+Pioneer: 250
  • Golden/Emerald: 300
  • Golden/Sapphire: 300
  • Golden/Platinum: 400
  • Golden/Diamond: 400
  • Golden/Ultimate: Unlimited

Depending on how many days you’ve been registered, all those days, minus the first 30, will count towards a limit increase.

This means that the older member you are, the more referrals you may have.

The amount will be based on your current membership/pack and the days you’re registered (minus 30). This amount will vary and is explained below:

  • Standard/Pioneer = Days-30 divided by 4
  • Golden (without a pack) = Days-30 divided by 2
  • Golden (with a pack) = Days-30

For example, if you have been registered for 330 days (which minus 30 gives 300 days):

  • Standard= 30 + (300/4) = 105
  • Golden = 200 + (300/2) = 350

Here is a common explanation of how to make money with NeoBux:

I work full-time with a regular job, and log in to Neobux and manage my referrals in the evening, recycle if necessary. Nowadays I am Ultimate member, but in the middle of my Golden membership I discovered a very effective way of how and when to recycle my referrals. This made my income grow faster than ever before, and all my earnings I invested back in NeoBux.

That’s what it is all about – learn how to manage your NeoBux account with your referrals and make them grow your income.

Many people sign up with Neobux, rent referrals and click all their ads. But that’s not enough. – Source

Since NeoBux has been around since 2008, it can be difficult for people to find direct referrals.  To help solve this problem NeoBux allows you to rent ad clickers. After you purchase one of the available rental packs, you’ll get that number of ad clickers credited to your account for 30 days. You’ll be able to extend their rental period anytime before the expiration date.

NeoBux claims these rental ad clickers are users that either registered without any referrer or were direct referrals sold to us by our members.

It costs approximately $1 for 5 rental ad clickers.

The number of members of NeoBux is not disclosed by the company.  If you join today, you can rent 100 or more members to click ads for you.  In my opinion, the only way to maintain a ratio of 100+ available rental members to 1 new member is to use bots.


Here is an example of one success story after renting 10,000 ad clickers:

Hi there, Neobux nation. Hope you all feeling good, coz I do feel good!

Just want to share my little success of reaching my goal which is 10K rented referrals.

This was one of my biggest goals to reach and with lot of patients I finally reached it.

And from 6150 rented referrals up to 10K RR I didn’t invest any more money out of my pocket (I used only profit that I made here) and all of my referrals are extended for 240 days.

My next big goal is to reach 20K RR and one day to make $1000 a month pure profit.

What else to say…Keep clicking, keep dreaming, and make those dreams come true and you will, if you believe! – NeoBux Forum

The quality of the ads you click on is very low with NeoBux.  They are almost all money making schemes.

Here is an example of the type of ads you will find:


If clicking on money making scams and paying for the privilege to make a significant amount of money for your time, NeoBux is the money making scam for you.  Don’t fool yourself, this money making scam is designed to be complex enough that most people will not find out until it is too late they have wasted their time and money.

NeoBux Scam Conclusion

In my opinion, NeoBux is another recruiting scam. The money that you make comes mainly from the people that have been recruited into the money making opportunity. The free option to join is extremely limited on how much money you can make in a year without recruiting people. They don’t use adpacks like the Traffic Monsoon scam, but they use the rental of ad clickers to take your money. The advertising provided is not worth spending money on unless you are promoting another money making scam. NeoBux is designed to be complex enough that most people will not find out until it is too late they have wasted their time and money. I would avoid the NeoBux money making opportunity.
