Helium.com / Scam

Re

I am a professional writer who has written for Helium.com since May of 2007. On Thanksgiving Day of 2009, I received an email message claiming that some of the links within my Helium articles were in violation of the Helium rules. I had never recieved any messages regarding these links before. The links were specifically to relevant content which I had created on other websites. Some of the links were to craft templates and images on other websites. I had included these image links because Helium.com does not accept images for upload. I was ordered, on a national holiday, to remove the link...

Helium.com / Don't explain their payment policy properly

Ad

I'm 13 years old, recently i wanted to earn some money and be independant. I tried many ways to earn money safely at my age.

I started writing articles non stop for about 3 days, I managed to write around 15, 12 word poems and another 13 400 word Articles. I made sure i didnt...

Helium.com / Online fraud

Mi

I knew there were many internet scams out there but I never expected to encounter one of this type. At first glance it seemed to on the up and up with many helpful people encouraging others to write their butts off and also to rate as much as possible. I soon realized that things weren't what they seemed. I found out some stewards (who were touted as mere members volunteering to do free work for Helium) were paid to push any new rules changes which Helium came up with. If anyone complained the paid cheerleaders would naysay any complaints and talk up the new changes. Some of the paid...

Helium.com - Maine / Helium refuses to delete my articles and profile

Th

I've had a really hard time with Helium.com. I made about $0.20 from their site and decided that I wanted to use my articles somewhere else - a magazine wants to pay me $50-$100 for some of them but I can't have them posted anywhere else. I emailed helium (at [email protected] and at [email protected]) 3-4 times and never received a response. In an (immature) attempt to get my profile deleted I purposefuly published inappropriate content then reported my own inappropriate article thinking they might pay attention to that. Well instead of deleting my articles and my profile, they made me...
