Now... I was never a member of OiNK, so I don't know about donations supposedly funding their servers, but newspapers are reporting that the OinK founder had $300,000 - all from site donations - in his accounts.

So - where do you think YOUR private tracker donations are going?

Sure - private trackers are a business,
a pyramid selling scheme,
a little bit of money for nothing.

OK, so there's a bit of hosting to be paid for, but the
"donations-for-ratio" scam brings in way more than that...
and that's all free cash for the trackers.

OiNK got away with 200,000.
That's as scummy as charging
your friends for copying a CD - on a mega scale.


So, how much have you got stashed under your single matresses thebox.bz staff?
What happens when the dole office find out?

And worse than that - this slime got the money by charging his members.
