Scammer: cashsurfingnetwork.com - Eric Goettman

by Rudolf Faix 20. December 2015 12:52

The difference between promotion and reality gets very good shown at the page of a scammer. In this case the page cashsurfingnetwork.com from Eric Goettman is a very good example for misleading advertisements. The lie of the advertisement can get easily identified. The promotion at http://cashsurfingnetwork.com/splashpage.php?splashid=9 shows us the misleading information that you get $12 signup bonus:

The misleading promotion from cashsurfingnetwork.com - Eric Goettmann

That the above promotion is a big lie gets already shown in their own explanations. Cashsurfingnetwork is "40,000 members strong" and declares that "our companies have paid out $ 20,180 in commissions and prices". I think everybody can make a mental calculation that 40,000 members who got $12 is making a sum of $480,000 instead of $20,180. $20,180 divided in 40,000 members makes around $0.50 for each member.

The site cashsurfingnetwork.com got registered on May 17, 2013 - 2 years and 213 days ago. The site is in sum running already 943 days. All the members did not sign up yesterday. If the promise of "guaranteed $1.00 a day" would be true and only 33% of their members would be active then they would have paid until now more than $10 million instead of the promoted $20,180 (40,000 members * 33% * 943 days * $1 = $12,447,600)!

In U.S. is the Federal Trade Commission responsible for prosecuting misleading promotion. At the FTC site "Truth in Advertising" we find the explanation of the law in the U.S.:

When consumers see or hear an advertisement, whether it’s on the Internet, radio or television, or anywhere else, federal law says that ad must be truthful, not misleading, and, when appropriate, backed by scientific evidence. The Federal Trade Commission enforces these truth-in-advertising laws, and it applies the same standards no matter where an ad appears – in newspapers and magazines, online, in the mail, or on billboards or buses. The FTC looks especially closely at advertising claims that can affect consumers’ health or their pocketbooks – claims about food, over-the-counter drugs, dietary supplements, alcohol, and tobacco and on conduct related to high-tech products and the Internet. The FTC also monitors and writes reports about ad industry practices regarding the marketing of alcohol and tobacco.

When the FTC finds a case of fraud perpetrated on consumers, the agency files actions in federal district court for immediate and permanent orders to stop scams; prevent fraudsters from perpetrating scams in the future; freeze their assets; and get compensation for victims.

In Europe is it law that each promotion needs to get fulfilled. The consumer is able to bring companies with misleading promotion in front of law court to get the promises done in the advertising.

If you sign up at cashsufingnetwork.com you'll not get the $12 promised at their promotion. You'll get nothing and for this reason you are already allowed to call Eric Goettman to be a scammer and fraudster, because he lies already at his splash page. After signing up you'll find a few steps, which you have to fulfill to get in sum $12. You have to sign up and surfing at six other sites. Each of these sites should pay $2:

Memberpage with steps to get $ 12

This procedure is not stated in the promotion from cashsurfingnetwork.com and for this has this procedure nothing to do with the promotion. Anyway, even if you are signing up at the six other sites you'll not get the $12.

If you like to sign up at www.tophits4u.com you'll get warned from Adguard that the site is a well-known phishing site. Normal users should not follow the link:

Adguard warning from tophits4u.com, a well-known phishing page

Anyway, I know what I'm doing and how to protect myself and signed up there too. Each of the six sites likes to pull a lot of your hard earned money out of your pocket during the signing up process. During the "one-click" sign-up process you have to click away at least three offers from each site. The one click sign up process is for this reason a big lie too. The only one which likes to get rich quick and can get rich if he finds enough stupid ones, which believing his offers, is Eric Goettman - the owner of the site cashsurfingnetwork.com. I'm not belonging to the stupid ones, which are paying for promises. I signed up at all the sites as a free member, because nobody can sell money without some earnings.

After signing up and surfing the pages i only received in sum $ 0.51 to my account. The promised $12 of the promotion are still missing:

A screenshot of the paid to click offer from cashsurfingnetwork.com shows that you can earn only $0.01. All other PTC (Paid To Click) networks are at least offering $0.05 for their free members:

We found the same Eric Goettman with the same address data and phone number.

Marcus WahlI cannot say if Eric Goettman and Edward Goettman are brothers or the same person. An Eric Goettman, however you write the name, does not get found in the social networks.

The only one, which gets found with a connection to cashsurfingnetwork.com, is at LinkedIn a person with the German sounding name Marcus Wahl. He calls himself to be a "Co Owner at Cashsurfingnetwork.com" and provides in his profile that he is from Lincoln, Nebraska, US. To his LinkedIn profile are connected 68 contacts. That is for me a very small number of contacts for running multiple networks like rapidfireads.com, cashsurfingnetwork.com, legacyteamcoop.com and legacyhits.com.

For the reason of their lies in their advertisements and their business methods are all involved people from cashsurfingnetworks for me not trustful business partners. A liar will not be believed, even when he speaks the truth. The first lies are getting found already in their advertisements.

Update May 4, 2016: If you follow up the discussion in the comments section then you'll find out that Eric Goettman pays the "FREE $12 SIGNUP BONUS" more or less to himself. This fact is now even declared at the splash page with the words "*2.00 is placed into each of the six traffic exchanges free". You can be sure that you need to upgrade your membership on each of the sites to get the $2.00 and the membership fee will be much higher than the "FREE" $2.00 because nobody can payout more than he is earning. This fact has not been written anywhere at the time I have signed up at CashSurfingNetwork.com and it has not been written in any email after signing up:

Scammer: Gerardas Norkus - paid-to-read-email.com

by Rudolf Faix 9. November 2015 12:01

It seems that the scammer Gerardas Norkus is running with his domain paid-to-read-email.com a lead generation system for other scam and malware sites. The scam gets already found at the faq's of the website paid-to-read-email.com. In these FAQ and his terms and conditions he thinks that he can stand over the law of the European Union. The site paid-to-read-email.com is registered in Lithuania and Lithuania is a member of the European Union. For this the scammer Gerardas Norkus has to respect the ecommerce law and the consumer protection law of the European Union. Maybe the scammer thinks that Lithuania still belongs to the formerly USSR. It would be time for him to wake up from this dream.

The scam from Gerardas Norkus on the site paid-to-read-email.com can get easily identified. He declares in the FAQ that the minimum payout is $15. You'll get for each email you'll read between $0.01 and $0.05. The scam gets found in that what he calls "garanteed paid emails (GPE)". That are only 100, which have in sum a value of $1. Together with the $3 sign-up bonus and the paid emails you'll reach only a maximum value of $4, which is far under the minimum payout of $15. You can increase your GPE factor by completing some surveys or offers. The problem is only that there are no offers on the site and the survey links are leading to scam, phishing, virus and malware sites. As it is a requirement in his offer to complete such surveys is he in front of law liable for the content of the sites including the scam, phishing, viruses and malware! This responsibility cannot get excluded by writing some statements on a website because it is a part of his business.

Here are the FAQ of the page paid-to-read-email.com. If you read them with an open mind then you'll get it that you get guaranteed NOT PAID

What is Paid To Read Email®?
Paid To Read Email® is an online rewards community where you can earn money for reading emails, taking surveys, completing offers, referring friends and more! You can also choose to earn points that are redeemable for gift cards, guaranteed™ paid emails (GPE) and more.

Here gets already the first part of the scam found. You have to buy the "guaranteed paid emails" with your work. With other words you are paying with your workforce the scam.

 

How does Paid To Read Email® pay me to read email?
Paid To Read Email® will pay you $0.01 - $0.05 for every paid email that you confirm. Simply follow the instructions in the paid email you receive, and your account will be credited! Note that you won't be credited for reading paid emails if your guaranteed™ paid emails (GPE) are expired.

In this case the scammer Gerardas Norkus likes to burden his duties to the consumer. The problem is only that this is against the consumer protection law of the European Union. As soon as the the customer of his site - it does not make any difference if the offer is free of charge or not - does a job, in this case reading of an email as offered, the customer has to get paid.

 

How and when will I be paid?
Member commissions shall be paid by PayPal. Payments are processed within three (3) business days upon request, however your first time payment is processed on a net-15 basis. This means that your first payment will be processed 15 days from the end of the month in which you requested payment. This waiting period is necessary in order to prevent online fraud. Member commissions must exceed $15 in order to receive payment. Commissions earned during any month less than $15 will be carried over into the following month.

In the above statement the stupid scammer Gerardas Norkus does not know that he has to pay by law in any case as soon as the consumer has seen the counter. A printout of the page where the amount is written is enough evidence for the law court.

You are able to calculate how long it will take until you get a payout by the fact, that I have gotten exactly 0 (zero) paid emails within 24 hours after signing up for the service. The scammer hopes that the people will take the trap with his malware sites if they are not able to earn something.

 

Why was I not credited for reading paid emails?
You won't get credited for confirming paid emails if your guaranteed™ paid emails (GPE) are expired. You can see your current GPE amount when you login to your account and go to Earnings page. You can increase your GPE by taking surveys and offers, or by earning points and redeeming them for GPE.

Note that the higher paid email rate you have selected in your profile the faster your GPE will expire.

Like it is written before already, the customer has to get paid as it offered. The idea that the scammer can let the customer working free of charge confirms the scam!

 

Why was I not credited for surveys and offers that I completed?
There are several possible reasons for not getting credited in your account. Note that Paid To Read Email® does not credit member accounts for completing surveys and offers. This process is handled by the advertiser companies who hosts and maintains all of the surveys and offers. The company who credits the surveys and offers has the final say in whether or not you are credited, and reserves the right to refuse a member credit for a survey or offer for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, lack of appropriate information, improper sign-up, improper browser settings, and/or a history of manual credits. If you do not see the credit in your account, that means that Paid To Read Email® did not receive credit either, and we therefore cannot pay you.

Even here is the scammer Gerardas Norkus wrong. As the surveys from other companies are a part of his offer is he liable for the payment of his customers. It does not matter if he gets some money for the work of his customers for another company or not. He is even liable for the promises of the other sites! 

Scamadviser reports about the site paid-to-read-email.com:

Technical contact email address is a free one
Administrative contact email address is a free one
This website is associated with a risk site
This website setup involves countries known to be high risk
This website is likely to be operating from a high risk country

This site has a high risk country associated with it. This may be as you expect but care should be taken if purchasing an item from a site that you didn't expect to be associated with the countries listed above. Certain countries are listed as being high risk because of the high percentage of online fraud or tendency to send fake/replica items.

Free email addresses have been used in the setup of this website. This is not necesarily worrying, depending on the site. For online shops, this can be a sign that the site has some risk

 

In the following list you'll see for which sites the scammer Gerardas Norkus makes lead generation. Each of the survey sites from his member section generates an Adguard and a security warning from 360 Total Security. As the Adguard warning come first on my computer and to keep the list short I have copied here only the Adguard warnings: 

Adguard has blocked access to this page

Adguard has found that this page may be a forgery or imitation of another website, designed to trick users into sharing personal or financial information. Entering any personal information on this page may result in identity theft or other abuse.

I'll recommend everybody to use some protection like Adguard and a good virus scanner like 360 Total Security for visiting a website the first time. It shows you not only the danger of site it protects your computer against malicious software.

How Gerardas Norkus is scamming you if you are signing up can get shown on a complaint at RippOffReport about his domain cash4offers.com:

Cash4offers - Gerardas Norkus this guy is ripping people off and must be stopped ripoff Lithuania Internet

That the above complaint is not a revenge from an unhappy user gets shown on the report and rating of cash4offers.com from the U.S. Better Business Bureau. This report shows too that it does not help against the authorities to hide the domain ownership behind some privacy services.

Scam: mycashemails.com - epsprosperityhotline.com

by Rudolf Faix 13. July 2015 07:38

EPS ProsperityHotlineAn actual offer in the social networks has coming into my focus. The offer is "Make $25.00 For Every Email You Process And Get Paid INSTANTLY!". The offer has all signs of a scam from the kind "get rich fast".

A search for product, which shall get sold by this system, is completely missing. You get $25 for each member you recruit. The new members have nothing else to do then to you. The only way in which this offer differs from a standard pyramid scheme is that there is an extremely short “downline” (just you) and that the site owners are not part of the downline. The site owners are only earning $10 if one of the members order a site. Any way is it nothing than a pyramid system from which the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and The FBI Federal Bureau of Investigation is warning. In some countries is such a system even illegal because nothing gets traded.

A look at the domain registration of the promoted website, which should be a "Proven System since 2010", shows that the creation date is Feburary 5, 2014. For this it can be only an affiliate.

Scamadviser says about epsprosperityhotline.com:

Warning: Low Trust Rating. This Site May Not Be Safe to Use.
Good Result: This website is deemed to be popular by Alexa with a ranking of 250692

Scamadviser only oversees that the domain ownership is hidden by a proxy service. Even the Alexa ranking of 250692 is not really a good sign especially if I compare it with my own site here, which has at the moment an Alexa ranking of 293180 (you can view the actual Alexa ranking of blog.wwpa.com by scrolling down to the end of the links on the right site).

The domain registration data of epsprosperityhotline.com show us that the domain got created January 28, 2013, so it cannot be a proven system since 2010.

If I try to visit the site directly, I'll get immediately a warning from Adguard:

Adguard has found that this page may be a forgery or imitation of another website, designed to trick users into sharing personal or financial information. Entering any personal information on this page may result in identity theft or other abuse.

As I know what I'm doing, I proceed and get the information that I have reached the site without a referral ID. If we add the referral id to the link, then we get like expected the same content. A view into the source code shows us, that we have reached really the parent site, which is even running in a frame by itself., because inside this frame are no other frame sets.

It is nice that epsprospertyhotline.com makes by themselves in their headline the connection to clickbank.net, which is already known from the different pyramid systems like paidsocialmediajobs.com, getcashforsurveys.com, click4surveys com, surveyspaid.com, etc. which are promoting the same get rich quick scheme.

At ScamAdviser we find about clickbank.net the complaints of two users and the following information:

Low Trust Rating. This Site May Not Be Safe to Use.
Alert Result: This website/business has been given a low reliability rating by other websites
Alert Result: This website has been reported as being untrustworthy

Fraud & Scam

paidsocialmediajobs.com is a dangerous and spamming pyramid system

by Rudolf Faix 13. July 2015 07:01

Any company that requires you to first pay them a fee before they can pay you is nothing less than a scam, similar to pyramid schemes.

PaidSocialMediaJobs

Some of these job descriptions from Paid Social Media Jobs have you getting companies ridiculously impossible things like 4,000 hits or likes in an hour, a million in a few days and similar things that, unless you have some illegal adder software, is not doable.

On top of this, they use a fake "Fox News" clip that has nothing to do with nor endorses "Paid Social Media Jobs".

Following the Link given to paidsocialmediajobs.com is not really suggested, because even Adguard warns from this site:

Warning! Could be unsafe!

Alert Result: This website has been reported as being untrustworthy

I have opened the website from paidsocialmediajobs.com in a safe way by disabling scripting and all web addons and found out that they are using clickbank.net for their affiliate system.

Fraud & Scam

Scam: epsprosperityhotline.com - hidden domain ownership - Email Processing - Do you like to pay for going to jail?

by Rudolf Faix 6. July 2015 04:41

epsprosperityhotline.com sample emailThe scam starts already with a false promotion: "Make $25.00 For Every Email You Process And Get Paid INSTANTLY!".

The second lie on the website is found in the words "Proven System Since 2010". The domain got created January 28, 2013. If the system is proven since 2010 then they have already lost their reputation more than once with their "Proven System". There is no other reason to change the domain name of a "proven system".

You have to advertise the system and you have to sell the system to the prospects from the advertising. You get the sign-up fee directly if you are able to convince a prospect.

As not every prospect can get convinced to the system the promotion "Make $25.00 For Every Email You Process And Get Paid INSTANTLY!" is already wrong. With other words you are doing the hard selling work without a calculable result.

As the promotion is already a lie the income promotion will be a lie too. So don't dream from big money try to think about the system without getting influenced from dreams.

If you sign-up to this system then you get nothing else than:

 

  1. Pre-Written Ads
  2. Step-by-Step instructions how you can promote the system
  3. Access to the EPS Support Team if you ever need help
  4. The option to purchase a website :)

With other words nothing which has a real value. For this is the complete system an illegal pyramid system. You are promoting an illegal system under your name, you are sending out emails under your name and you are getting the money. That makes you to the responsible person in front of the law court and this law court can bring you into jail. The real owner of the system keeps himself out of focus from the justice and makes his money with upselling!!!

Don't be stupid, you even can get fined for participating at an illegal system even you earned nothing from it.

Start thinking by using your own brain. Why shall you pay? You get nothing for your payment. The advertising from the system can get copied without any problem - you can find it on Facebook - and you can start your own system too if you like to take such a risk. In this case you would be really your own boss with all the risks.

Additional are you getting warned from the site epsprosperityhotline.com if you are using the AdGuard browser plug-in:

Warning! Could be unsafe!
