Megastoon is essentially a job site where users can sign up for multiple jobs and tasks. The tasks are usually as simple as posting a referral link on a message board or Facebook. The link generates traffic to Megastoon and its affiliates. This is known as a PPC (pay per click) service.
Once Megastoon users complete the task and generate traffic, they are paid through various payment options like PayPal or Western Union. However, Scambook users allege that Megastoon fails to pay users for their completion of tasks.

Actual Scambook Complaints About Megastoon
Here’s what real Scambook users just like you have reported about Megastoon:
I worked for this company for all of September and spread the links as requested to earn money. Earned over 1091 in a week and never got paid as of the date said I was going to be paid which was supposed to be 9/29/13. I since have not been able to access my account. I’ve emailed and emailed them with no response. My username is (Personal Information Removed). Please help me get this money as I worked my tail off for it and have 6 kids to feed. Thank you [source]
I’ve sent over 200 unique hits to the link that Megastoon.com provides with the understanding that they will pay $2 for every unique hit. To this date, no payment has been made. It is very upsetting that so many people have been dooped by this scam and I bet the company is being paid by there advertisers for all the traffic that people generate but noone is being compensated for.

I set up an account with them to get paid by Western union and went to work, as of today October 5th 2013 I had $2234 in mine account that it suppose to be paid between on 29th of October but I went on the web said that the site has bean suspended.I had put a lot of time in to the advertising of the webs since september, which I was given to, so I would like to get paid for it. Is there anything else I can do to get mine money back?
