What is the NeoBux all about and who runs the site?

NeoBux is PTC (Pay to click service) site where you can earn money by mostly viewing advertisements and other small tasks. Neobux was launched on March 25, 2008 and the owner of Neobux is Fernando from Portugal, but he is known as “Admin”. However, he is not well known on social media and the web, so there is not much information about him.’

So, how can you earn from NeoBux?

1.You can earn by clicking on ads


You can earn about $0.001 per advertisement click. As you can see, there are different type of ads, you can click on – Micro Exposure, Mini Exposure, Standard Exposure, Extended Exposure and Fixed Advertisements. Each type gives you a different amount of money for clicking it, depending on which membership you choose.

Although the main source of earning is by clicking on ads, these are the other ways you can earn too.

  •  You can earn by doing CloudFlower tasks – NeoBux is partnered with CloudFlower, a top notch micro job provider. User gets paid to do small jobs provided by CloudFlower via offers page.
  • Point Offers – Get paid to install mobile apps via Offers Page – points offers.
  • Coin Offers – Get paid to do offerwalls like TrialPay, Super Rewards, MatomyMoney and TokenAd.
  • Watching Videos – Watch videos and NeoBux will pay you per video.

Note: Some of them let you sign up in other programs and ask for your credit card information, then it is better you leave those kind of tasks because those tasks are not from the Neobux itself, but from the advertisers. Neobux cannot guarantee about those advertisers. So, never give your any critical information in such kind of works.

2. You can earn by referring others to NeoBux

Lastly, there is a affiliate program by NeoBux, where you will earn a commission by just referring others to join the program. You can earn commissions from your referrals when they view ads or upgrade their membership. However, you must click total 100 ads and must wait 15 days after you sign up in order to be eligible to refer people. In the beginning, they will allow you to refer only 30 people. But as time passes by, they will allow you to refer more people.

You also must view at least 4 orange color ads as a free member and 9 orange color ads as upgraded member in order to get commissions from your referrals each day, otherwise you will not earn money from your referrals for that day

There are two types of Referrals, Direct Referral and Renting Referral. Direct referrals are people you invite to join on NeoBux and registered under your referral link. Renting referrals is the same as but you will have to pay for it. Screen Shot 2016-05-30 at 6.16.44 PM

However, the renting referrals in known to rent bots to it’s users. The Neobux referral scheme is exposed all over the internet. Here are some sites that exposed the scam.




Here is a video on a video I found on youtube, explaining the truth about NeoBux

The Neobux Admin also shows false statistics on their homepage, to try to induce you to invest money and use the money invested by you, to sustain this scheme. This is a screenshot from their website stating that they paid over $100,000 to their members.

However, I only found 18 people who posted of their payment proof on the forum page which obviously doesn’t add up to $100,000.

Finale Verdict: NeoBux is a scam. 

The fake statistics of the site, the rental referral bots, and the owner’s credibility prove that’s the site is therefore not legitimate. I would not want to associate with a such a fraudulent business opportunity.

To prevent anyone else from being victims and to shut down this fraud.

This is one of the most informative reviews that I have seen of the Neobux PTC website.

Personally, I think that the PTC websites are a total waste of time especially if your sole purpose of earning is by clicking on ads.

All the clues which you have provided are proof enough that this is a time waster and a system to avoid. The fees are astronomical when you compare them to the more established PTC websites out there.

I saw that you also wrote a review on Clixsense which I will look into when I get the time to do so….

You are also free to check out my review of Clixsense which I did on my website a while ago.

Thank you for sharing such a well-researched post. All the best to you!



Ciao! Your site is amazing and so is your review. I will avoid this scam for sure!
Thanks for sharing.

Hi, thank you for a very informative and thorough review of neo bux, needless to say I will not be signing up to it 🙂


Great review. I think it’s not a scam, it’s just a very ineffective program with false promises. It DOES pay members, even though barely pennies. I did try NeoBux once and realised that it’s not a long-term money making platform. Hell, it’s not even a pocket money method. It’s a joke.

But it’s not a scam lol.


This does seem really off, not answering their associate’s questions and banning them, these are tail, tail signs of improper conduct, I will be steering clear of this one.
Thanks for sharing.
