I have been researching buying traffic from some of these websites that offer lets say 10,000 visitors for 29.00 for example.. Are any of these sites actually legitimate or are they just click frauds... are there sites out there that will send real filtered traffic to websites? or are most of these sites a hoax.

I tried this once to see if it works, but they all seem to be hoax, they say it's really targetted and even got testimonials from previous customers for it. After few thousand clicks not even one tried surfing around the site.

Don't waste your money. It's most likely a spyware program that gives an untimely popup of your site.

I did also try them, a long time ago. I think the hits are mainly bot-generated. Don't waste your money.

Don't waste your time or money! These are not real visitors to your site. These sucker in newbies to the web. You will probably get 10,000 hits to your site but you want 10,000 real-live visitors....or better yet, 10,000 sales...this will never happen! I know someone that ran this type of operation and made pretty good money at it. All he did was order a fake hits generator and used it to send hits to various URL's; completely legal when you are selling hits to a site opposed to real-live people to a site.

You can put $20 more dollars to your $29.00 and have your own hits generator. See here: [terrafirmadesign.net...]

One really has to just think about the whole concept to see how absurd it is. If I pay someone $29.99 to send me traffic, where does this person get it from, that I can't get it myself through regular means (i.e. banner, link exchanges, etc). Surely this person doesn't have a battalion of people at his beck and call to click on your site.

Better spend your time and money on adwords/SEO.

Actually, they do:

It's alot of worthless traffic -- individuals join PTR programs and are supposed to surf live to earn a few pennies, which would be bad enough if it were true... but most members set their pc on auto surf with cheap software.

The proprietor of the PTR company sells you the traffic and claims it's real people, since he has "no knowledge" of how his members surf.

Search G for "auto surf" to see the array of ready-made $5 software behind all of this high quality traffic.

They may bring you 10000 "clicks", but 99.99%, if not 100%, are bot-clicks.
I once spent $100 on a pay-per-click search engine, I forgot their name as they keep changing their name, $0.02 a click. They did bring me about 5000 "clicks" in one day, but 0 of them was a real "visitor", every-click left after they reached my site.
