I am a model on MFC (Briella...just come ask) and I think it's a great site. I actually DO make around 50 dollars an hour. I know several girls that make more. I also know several more that make less. It's all on what you're willing to do. MFC doesn't force *anyone* to do something they are uncomfortable with. I get a direct deposit to my bank account, without fail, twice a month.
As for the members, it's one of the few sites that is truly free. You can watch and not pay. However, many decide to become premium members to get more attention and one on one time with the models. Even so, from what I've been told, it's one of the least expensive sites on the net for this type of business.
If you think you've been scammed, chances are you have done something stupid (client) or have the personality of a wet noodle (model).
Along with the points in the answers from ‘Micheal’ and the anonymous ‘studio’ owner, without a doubt ‘YES’ My Free Cams is most definitely a scam. All you have to do to confirm this is look over the contract they have their models sign. The contract is full of insane terms and conditions that require the model to sign over the rights to their image on the internet and does so with prejudice and unspecific terms in many areas of how they can control the agreement with the model while also having absolutely no liability for any wrong doing.
I have shown the My Free Cams contract to three different commercial law firms, the ACLU and three adult website owners. All have been absolutely disgusted at the contract and have assured me that a person would have to be entirely devoid of conscience to even create such a document with the intention of having another human being sign it. Likewise a person signing this contract would have to be entirely insane and have no knowledge of ethical contracting principals.
Their contract doesn’t even define specifically how the model will be paid. This “token” system they use does not specify the actual value of the tokens (as a previous answer tried to claim). In the my free cams contract they point out that the value of these ‘tokens’ can be changed at any time, for any reason and the pay out to the model is actually under an entirely different agreement with a third party they refer to as a ‘studio’ which actually does an entirely different agreement that doesn’t even have to be a written contract or employment. These “studios” actually handle the liability for final payment to the model outside the My free Cams agreement.
Another aspect of the My Free Cams contract is that they require the model to handle all the 2257 liability so if the model DOES happen to be under age there is no real liability that My Free Cams has to worry about. The system of handling the 2257 documentation can also be complex and costly of the model is ever asked by the federal government to provide it. More often the models do not understand how to do this as My free cams does not provide any aid. False Age identification can be very easily given to my free cams as they do not claim liability for it and if the model does happen to be under age the contract releases them from any wrong doing.
One aspect of contracting with my free cams which points out how unfair and potentially dangerous their contract can be to a model is that they threaten unreasonable and entirely illicit punishments if the model seeks outside advice about the contract.
If they will not even allow you to show any other person or a lawyer the contract for a second opinion, it is obviously because the contract is NOT fair.
Of all the adult webcam sites I have seen NONE offer fair contracting. My free cams, streammates, camsharks, ,internetmodeling.com, on her cam are also others to avoid.
The only real money I’ve seen made by cam models is when they own their own websites and use their own camming and paysite software, which are actually very easy and cheap to get these days.
The site is for 50 years old virgins some don't got any braincells and when they are giving some tokens to the ugly model do they think they are something worth. Just watch some normale porn don't be retarded and watch on a girl like me in 5 hours for stripping.
