Evil empire update. They say I’m a high risk and are holding my pay. Lol. I made 5 bucks all from low paying free sign ups all under 50 cents each

Edit: idle empire

Well I got a reply from idle empire about my cash out being on hold. They said unfortunately all surveys I done ( I done no surveys I only do offers) are associated with a high risk score. So they must hold my payment to protect themselves.

This doesn’t happen on legit sites. Every offer I done was under 50 cents. They were all free and were no trials or credit card purchase offers. They were simple sign ups, a few click offers, and a few email submits.

I earned 5$ and my understanding is I made my score to fast ? I’m not exactly sure if they meant I earned too fast or the offers were high risk. I know for a fact I done no high risk offers so I’m assuming there saying I’m high risk.

I’ve had sites ask for my identification or proof of residency before but to be honest in over 7 years this only makes the 3rd or maybe 4th time I’ve had a site just freeze my earnings ( on low paying offers)and not tell me how to get them unthawed. And the other times this happened I got ripped off other than once which was highest pay got and they paid me after about a month.

Just to be clear I told them I’d gladly provide any proof they needed of my identity or residency.

I will update this post if they pay me but to be honest if they think someone earning 5$ in an hour is to fast and high risk then I feel sorry for them.

  1. Offernation did that to me. When I went to cash out they said verification needed, I thought they wanted ID or something…
    nope. Just froze me. There’s plenty of fish.

    Thanks for the warning ; )

    1. Ahh yeah it’s no big deal. I’m glad I stopped at five bucks. They pay a little low but have lots of offercwalls so I came very close to doing a lot more. Just glancing around I could have knocked out twenty bucks easy.

  2. Hey there! I’m speaking on behalf of Idle-Empire and I’ve looked into your case. Your payout has been processed.

    I’d like to take a second to explain why this happened to you. We use [MaxMind](https://www.maxmind.com) to detect and reduce fraud on our platform. The way MaxMind works is that we supply them with a few details about you and the offer (IP addresses, email addresses, offer details) and they give us a Risk Score that is based on all available information.

    Most of your offer completions had a high Risk Score. This and the fact that your account was new lead to an extended period of your offer being “On Hold”. That’s our default procedure, in this case, to protect us from chargebacks.

    I’ve reviewed your connected social media accounts and they seem legitimate, so your withdrawal has been processed. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    1. What would you say is the percentage of users that have experienced this issue in the past 30 days and 60 days?

      Did you have to manually approve those? If so, what was the percentage of those percentages in the 30 and 60 days that got manually approved?

      I ask because like most users here we like to participate in referral bonuses, but if this is a frequent occurrence, referring someone would hurt our rep and that person as well as others would likely not do future referrals and/or business with us/me.

    2. Hopefully you dont verify zip code to the MaxMind site. I entered my IP in and its no where near where I live.
