    Weekly-Payday Shut Down? Scam?

    My wife and I put $10 in Weekly-payday.com 5 days ago. Basically it is (was?) an autosurf that paid $6 on every 5 after 5 days.
    This morning when I went to do my last day of surfing the site came up as Site Builder with /install/install/php after the url.
    I checked my email and this was in my bulk folder from weekly-payday's admin

    "this is a note to inform all my members that i will be out of town and
    unfortunitly will not have access to a computer, i have a funeral and a
    wake to go to. i will be gone for 2 days.

    thanks
    Admin"

    How convenient. It is possible the website went down on it's own and the admin wasn't there to fix it. If that is the case do we lose our 5th day (and profit day) of surfing? And it's also possible the admin is a scammer who took the money.

    So, question, how do I go about finding out where this person lives? There must be some way to trace where he/she was operating the domain out of.
    We are going to do all we can to find out... but we'll give it the weekend to see if the site doesn't come back on line.

    Then we are going hunting. Doesn't matter if it's $1 or $1000. We will refrain from any illegal acts but if we locate the person they will wish they never ran a scam and they will pay the money back one way or another.

    I have a few ways of tracking people & sites but sometimes there are 3rd party web hosts and such. Luckily I live with a computer expert and I also have an old friend who is really good at tracking stuff.

    PS: I wonder if the admins email was a mesage letting us know about the "death" of their website :confused:

    Disregard.

    The site is back up and running with everything intact. Looks like it fell under the same attack as did 12Daily when the net was the problem all along.

    My error. I didn't realize DDOS attacks were happening to several websites.
