I once accessed FC when I was out of the country and found out my account was blocked afterwards. I had to go through customer service and verify that it was me before being reinstated. It didn't even occur to me at the time because doing FC every day becomes second nature. I know better now when I go on vacation.

I make it a point not to even TRY FC when I'm traveling.  My sister uses FC too, and when I'm at her house, I know that would create an issue;  from hotels and other vacation locations, I use public wifi and I sure don't want to jeopardize my account.

I try to plan for times away from home by doing some additional stuff before I leave and when I get home.... so far, so good.

I think this rule needs an overhaul. They have to allow a special temp code for each people away from home.

I do know you can put FC on vacation mode, if I remember correctly. That way they know why there is no activity occurring within a certain timeframe.

ladavia89 ur correct in saying "from the terms of service
Users must log in and use FusionCash on their own personal computer and internet connection only. The use of a FusionCash account on a public or shared computer, or public internet connection is grounds for disqualification. You may not access your FusionCash account on the same computer or internet connection as your referrer, referral, or any other FusionCash user. Violation of this term may be considered grounds for disqualification of any and all users involved."

What if your a person who don't own a computer, or has no access to a computer but in a public or wifi setting? How can the Terms of service disqualify you from your account that way? I am not trying to say that the person should be disqualified I am just asking because what if you travel for work and your a fusion cash member? Or maybe you have a laptop and your retired and all you have is a connection that is not your own because your home is an RV? These are thing's I think need to be validated when making that statement.

Chipmunk90 - good point there> that's what I am saying too! How can you disqualify someone who's only access is public/shared?

From Fusion Cash admin - We advise that you just use FC from home.  With that said, you can use a friends' private connection like you described, however, that friend (and anyone else living there) will not be able to use FC as long as they live there.  So you (and them) should be quite sure about that before you login.

That to me is not the answer I am looking for - It makes no difference who lives in your home its a wireless connection and your not signing them up as a referral. ll your doing is using an access point in order to do Fusion Cash.

NicoleFusion - good point again!

quietpal - what's that mean that in order for a person to be on Fusion Cash they need to be on there home network with there own Ip address? Whether you use a mobile phone or not your not going to be connected to your home WIFI your on a cellular connection when away.

catherinedwhite - I totally agree with you there. With apps and mobile technology there needs to be a way to do fusion cash even if your away from your own personal network.

I know my response is long but this thread is good and I felt like everyone needed to be addressed and my thoughts added. Maybe fusion cash will reconsider.

However if your struggling with this issue do like crisstar isays and thats do a support ticket and see what the answer will be.

If multiple members end up using the same internet connection to do surveys it would show up as fraudulent behavior. It would end up showing it as the same person completing a survey multiple times with different information each time. There are ways to always use the same connection even if you are traveling or always mobile.

I'm curious how this all works for a person who moves. I'll be moving to another state in the next few months and am curious what will happen to my FC standing...

Nothing should happen as long as you remain active. You would just need to update your account information. On the left side of your account page under Profile & Settings, click on Account Information. From there you can change what you need to and click the green save button at the bottom.

Thanks, I was just afraid I might get kicked out for accessing the site on a different connection.  :o  :)

Folks, I know the rule is a bit complicated but the bottom line is that we are well aware of circumstances like moving, only having a mobile based connection, traveling, and so on.  As long as you do your best to avoid sharing internet connections or locations with other FC users, you will get the benefit of the doubt.  In enforcing this rule, we look for intent to defraud or deceive and give leeway for the reasons described above and for small/minor infractions.  The only caveat here is that irregular internet connection usage patterns will likely trigger anti-fraud measures like requiring an ID verification.

That rule sucks because I work out of town four days out of the week so that's four days I can't make money with this site.

Sometimes I logged in from work on my lunch break.  FC asked to send info to verify who I am .   They may ask you to do that when you cash out.   The cash out will be delayed until approved by FC that you are who you are and you must submit to cash out again.

I'm so impressed when admin comes in to make clarifications for us.  Not many sites have that kind of communication and service.  I will be gone for about 10 days this month and I'm already trying to put in extra time on the site to make up for it.

I have shared this many times before, but it's been a long time.

Thanks to modern technology, you CAN access your Fusioncash from anywhere that has an Internet connection, if you leave your home computer running Remote Access Software (such as TeamViewer) and access it over the Internet with the matching client software on your laptop or phone.

The end result, is you are accessing Fusioncash from your home computer (as required in the TOS) even when you are NOT HOME and it is simple to do.

Make sure you use a good password to keep others from hacking it.

If you are technically inclined, you could even set up a VNC Server on your home computer for a more secure connection from anywhere at any time and run it just like you were still home.
