Is refer a friend promotion a scam or real

Posted on

On the refer a scheme promotion I had it said tI had to send a friend the referral link and then they had to register an account attached their bank card to account and then spend over £5 they done all these things and I even had a conversation with PayPal confirming a the requirements had been done and sent them screenshots of referral and them making a transaction and all they said was wait and it should come through but after reading how so many people have been mucked about and not got £10 reward I’m not holding much hope it will happen worst thing is it makes me look stupid as I had to persuade my friend to do it and they keep saying where I the reward money I said they would get don’t know what to say now, sorry just wait it will come or seems like it was a scam as after doing everything right don’t see reason for delay in payment. Seems like all I’ve done is get PayPal a new customer and not got paid for doing it, feels like an affiliate referral that hasn’t paid out for getting them a sale. Surely this is false advertising and not legal. Let me know what people think
