I just received a check from text-link-ads unexpectedly.. I didn't know that I already reached the minimum payout and they didn't even send me an e-mail about the said payment so when I received the mail from the postmaster, I really couldn't believe it! LOL ... I was glad upon receiving it, although not totally happy because I wouldn't be able to clear the check in the bank.
Anyway, the complete details about it is in my other blog - Make Money Online
