SFI. Log in from this link!
I use McAfee Web Security. Best investment I make on line. I then share the information with my team. McAfee test the sites I am surfing and block content that comes from potentially dangerous or suspicious sites. NEVER log into PayPal Via ANY Email.
SITES that do not Use PayPal
Or Say Pay Pal are the Problem.
They have not followed the PayPal Guide Line which is very simple.
To use PayPal Admin of sites need to verify their business.
Sending in the required documents.
- Photo of Drivers License.
- Send in a copy of your latest IRD (inland venue end of years Tax Form)
- Send in your IRD number.
- Send in proof of your bank account with your current address.
- Send In proof of telephone or power bill with the same current address.
Then Click Business Set Up and Check Account Set up.
Entering your Real Name. And setting Payment Limits.
Personally if a person can not provide these documents to PayPal they should not be operating. This is why I do not join any sites that doe’s not use PayPal as a payment processor.
Be Very Careful when joining New sites.
Make sure you are not signing up to a fishing Site.
A fishing site is a site a person launches with the sole purpose to capture email addresses with log in passwords etc. To Rip Off Everybody.
They launch with all sorts of hype. Promises of wealth overnight. When the sole intention is to clean out every ones paypal account at the other affiliate programs they belong to.. Most members will use the same log in and password they use with established sites they are members with. Giving these Con Artists Easy Access to their account at numerous sites.
These sort of sites then go and use the Members Information to log into other sites to steal their money. Hoping the member has used the same log in details. They then are able to log into the back office at these sites changing the Members PayPal email and adding a New One. Most Members Do not realize their accounts have been hacked. Leaving it to late to discover these people have requested their commissions to be paid into a different Pay Pal Account. Before members realize, these people have generated $1000’s if dollars, transferred the PayPal Balance into another bank Account. Then once they have received the cash. They delete the PayPal Account. Setting up a New One and repeating the cycle over and over.
THIS is why Pay Pal is Setting Up The New Security System Above.
I speak from experience.
This happened to me at SFI when I was a newbie years ago.
I entered my pay pal email with a new site that had just launched.
Because it is a fact most of us use the same log in details to log into established websites we are with.
They were able to log into my SFI account and other sites.
They went and changed my pay pal account info to a bogus Pay pal account. This person hit 100’s of SFI accounts just before the 15th when SFI were to pay members. They then transfer the money from this paypal account then shut it down.
Can you imagine my shock and horror when I checked my SFI account wondering why the money was not in my pay pal account to find my account info had been changes.
SFI PAID Me Back the Money Stolen. Awesume I say.
This is when I set up my G Mail security as they were able to log into G Mail and change my log in details also. So I was locked out of my own G Mail Account.
I spent days logging in to all the sites I belonged to changing my log in details and setting up a tighter more secure password.

Credit Card numbers are obtained in many ways.
Tip I have an Individual Visa Debit Card for my affiliate marketing.
I transfer money to it when I wish to spend. I never have more than $50 in this account. Never Use Your Main Bank Account or Credits Card Account.
After massive breaches like Target and Home Depot, many customers experienced fraudulent charges on their accounts or received new cards from lenders.
Sometimes it’s as simple as a small device called a skimmer that captures the data on your magnetic strip. Restaurant staffers and retail employees can also use pocket skimmers to duplicate your card info when the card is out of your sight. Perhaps the biggest use of skimmers is at gas pumps where they grab your data as you pay at the pump. While many consider credit card theft the worst kind of identity theft, it’s really a low-level type of data theft. Most card issuers cover the fraud at no charge to customers. At most, your risk is $50.
The real loss to you is the time it takes to mop up the problem.
Far worse is the February 2015 hack of Anthem, a health insurer who reported losing data on roughly 80 million customers and employees. In its letter to customers, Anthem said, hackers had possibly accessed
“names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers (SSN), health care ID numbers, home addresses, email addresses and employment information, including income data.”
In short, the Anthem hack exposed enough information to let hackers open new credit accounts, obtain government documents, and even commit medical identity theft, a growing threat that could use up health benefits or add false, potentially harmful data to victims’ medical records.
Imagine an instance where someone uses your medical ID to get treatment and has the wrong blood type entered into your records.
In an emergency, this sort of identity theft could be deadly.
Another common hack occurs when you visit a malware-riddled website that could download a key-logger without your knowledge.
The next time you do some online banking, the malware captures your password and sends it to the hacker. Alternatively, you might open a loaded email that appears legit but is really seeking to capture data like passwords and other info. These are often referred to as phishing scams because people are fishing for more of your personal data.
It’s also far more time consuming to correct full-blown identity theft.
This type of identity theft can take hundreds of hours to clean up. Now we see a new threat Ransom Soft Ware. Horrible, if you join the wrong site, your computer will be locked and you will receive a notice you need to pay ???? to have your computer access back on line.

Personally I spent thousands of dollars in 2015 joining sites that admin recommended grabbing life time upgrades or yearly upgrades.
I started to notice at the end of the year a lot of admin where launching new sites before sorting out the original ones they recommended and I joined.
After six months I also started to notice some admin were not paying, instead just kept repeating the cycle and launching new programs.
So in 2016 I removed a lot of sites.
Kissed my money goodbye and stopped joining new programs.
Launching DWSEarner instead, providing a surfing friendly safe environment for all my team. Log into DWSEarner. Click above Affiliate then click down line builder.
YOU will find trusted sites I have been using for years solely for the purpose of promoting SFI on a daily basis. This is how I achieve SFI Gold Team Leader Monthly.
If you do not see a site listed. Assume I have tested it and found it a waste of time and money.
