Exclamation Textbroker Closed Account!

Hello Everyone,
Happy New Year! Anyway, I received an email recently from Textbroker saying that they closed my account because of fraudulent activity! So I called and asked what they are referring to. I don't mind the account being closed because I very, very rarely write for Textbroker. I was at Level 4 and I just started writing for them again after about a year during the slow holiday season. The money isn't great there, so they are not a priority. I called to find out what was going on. The person on the other end of the phone said that they've had to close a number of accounts because people get together in one room and use different IP addresses. I said "but I have been with Textbroker for around seven or eight years, why would I do something like that? Plus I wouldn't know how!"...LOL I was traveling overseas and logged in, so maybe that's what they are referring to. I don't know. It's OK I have plenty of work, I just hope they pay me the money they owe me. She asked me to send a selfie with a piece of paper with the date holding my passport and they would pay me...LOL I just wanted to let you guys know just in case. There's plenty of stuff going on online these days. In fact, I found it a bit comical. Me, in a room with other people using different IP addresses to write at Textbroker!!!!
Take Care Everyone

The lengths some people will go to make, what, 1.5 cents per word? Gathering in one room and using different IP addresses? What is the point of that? LOL Hopefully you get paid once you send your proof that you're you. (Though the dated paper and passport selfie sounds like they think maybe you were kidnapped...)

Sorry to hear that happened to you prosperg. Sounds like a headache and I hope you are able to get it all sorted out.

Thanks guys for your replies. Yeah, they paid me my money, but I've learned a good lesson. In the future during my client's holidays, I won't wander off into the world of "content mills" just to pass the time away... LOL
