Is WidgetBucks a Scam?

If you're a monetizing blogger, im sure you are at least familiar about this relatively new concept in monetizing blogs which is called the Widgetbucks. Lets start with the flesh of the story. The layout looks so good that it would be a better substitute for all other money-making programs on the internet today. See the pic.
Looks good doesnt it? Well, i have to give them credit for it but the question still linger on my mind. Is Widgetbucks a Scam?

I made this statement because the 10% affiliate share they are talking about is too high for a program. Even Amazon.com is having 4%-7% only of the affiliate income which is true to most online stores that i have encountered. And the $3 per 1000 CPM is too low for you to be wasting your precious space for it. Yes, its free to join and you wont loose anything by trying it out but im here to say, make a calculated guess, think about the time you will loose by trying it out. I have nothing against it or anything, i just want to offer a well-reviewed program each time i recommend anything to my readers.

Am I going to Try it? Not in the near future im afraid. How about you? Its my standpoint and you can either take it or ignore it. For those who would ignore it, come back here after 2 weeks and ill be happy to hear from you.

    Thanks for the response matt. I assure you that your points are well taken seriously. As you said, its still new and i have to say its progressing along nicely but i still dont have the confidence in it YET. I have to personally see and experience it myself to give my visitors a well-reviewed program each time i recommend anything.

    I wish you luck in your future endeavors matt and again, your response is greatly appreciated. thank you.

    Dear Matt Hulett,
    I'm experiencing problem with Widgetbucks that i hope you can help to sought out.

    My account was suspended, claimed by widgetbucks team , "invalid clicks".

    Response has been very slow since several emails to the team.

    I've tried to explained to the team that my traffics are all coming from reputable search engines like google, exactseek & goclick.

    I did not ask anyone to click on my ads, how did you determine that there's invalid click?

    If it's all dependent on your discretion, how can we as publisher be protected?

    My site was earning good money from widgetbucks but it's now unfairly suspended.

    I was having good CTR on the widgetbucks ads, is that the reason you suspended my account?Just because i make good money?

    I've never ever used fraud click tactics in my sites, i don't believe in that.

    I hope that my account can be reinstated. I urge for a re-investigation & that you implement a warning to publisher in event of suspicious activity prior to suspension of accounts.

    Let me reaffirm that i as a publisher will never ever risk our income by implementing fradulent click.

    I'm all ready to disclose all my traffic sources, but would you show me how you defined invalid clicks?

    If all publishers that are making a good money from widgetbucks will get the eventual fate of account suspension due to unjust claim of "invalid clicks", how can you convince more publishers to join your program?

    I hope you will receive this message & email me asap.
