They really are paying too. I took some pix for fun and 4 weeks later I received an SMS saying they have credited my account .

I’ll PM on FB some sample pix in a bit. Pictures need to ID the premise if not they might reject it. Eg, take a pix of the frontage with whole sign board rather than a crooked pix with a partial sign board.
