TSG and the Case of the Missing Swagbucks
Hey guys, I’ve received emails about this and have seen people talking about it on Facebook and Twitter – people have seen Swag Bucks disappearing from their accounts. Allow me to explain.
The cheater who won all those Swagstakes exposed a problem with our Survey platform – essentially people could be credited repeatedly for completing profiles. The cheater use a bot program to exploit that weakness and earn tons of Swag Bucks very quickly. We have since closed that loophole, but there were a bunch of Swaggernauts who unfairly credited multiple times for the same profile being completed.
Therefore, we’ve just removed the unfairly awarded bucks.
Again, thanks to all of the users who alerted us to the cheater in the first place.
Swagbucks is a LOT more fun when we all play fair.
