Scammer Charles Scoville - Trafficmonsoon likes to win only time now

by Rudolf Faix 28. January 2016 08:24

Each bank and each payment processor has a risk management department. Depending on the effectiveness of the risk management department the fees for their reinsurance is rising or falling. Don't forget you cannot buy money for a discount price.

As soon the behavior of an account differs too much from the standard behavior from the other accounts of the same kind (private accounts, merchant accounts, bank to bank accounts, etc.) the system gives an alarm and the account needs to get manual verified from the risk management department. If you are running a real business than such a verification is not really a problem. You explain your business, show the proves, that you are running a real and trustful business and you get immediately access to your account and funds again. Other is it if you are ignoring the call for documentation from the risk management of your bank. In this case your account will get suspended and you'll get not any access to your funds until you transmit the necessary documentation and your explanation get accepted from the bank or payment processor.

Additional are all your transaction getting scored in an internal scoring system. This scoring system is getting used for calculating your credit risk depending on the funds of the company, her behavior by doing transactions, the upcoming disputes and some other parameters. A good example for this scoring system is the spending limit from the credit cards.

As soon the risk management of one bank terminates your account you need even not try to open an account at another bank because your data are getting shared between the banks. At least in Europe is this the case. It does not make any difference if the risk are a few thousand Euros over the insurance limit from your scoring value or if you are trading in millions of Euros. As soon as you are customer with a high risk you can only use cash.

That Charles Scoville with his business called Trafficmonsoon is a very high risk can get shown in the screenshot below where Paypal has canceled his account. The important information is not the yellow marked part. The most important information is getting found in the first sentence where is written: "... the balance will be available 180 days after the information that no longer allows you to process payments ...". The reason for this limitation is that the dispute time is three months. Paypal does not like to take the risk to lose money if a dispute is arriving in the last minute. Click on the screenshot to enlarge it in the case you are not able to read it:

Paypal account termination notice

The above screenshot shows that the funds from Trafficmonsoon are not enough for Paypal for securing their transactions. For this reason the account from Charles Scoville - Trafficmonsoon got terminated.

Charles Scoville has even invented a new fairy tale for getting less disputes for the remaining funds at Paypal and for getting more money paid out after the end of the opposition period. He has published this new fairy tale at his blog on January 12, 2016:

Thank you for being a valued Traffic Monsoon member.
 
Video Message From Dubai:
 
As you already know from the video, I'm currently in Dubai. One reason for that is to setup an office in the World Trade Center Dubai. Part of this process is also setting up a bank here, and having an additional business registration here in the UAE.
 
We're transitioning from using PayPal to opening our own TM World Bank.
 
VIDEO: Processor Account Balances For Transition:
 
Our goal with opening our bank is to send you TM MasterCards for easier access to your earnings! We'll also have complete control over the funds received by the company for revenue sharing, without any worry about the payment processors taking control of funds.
 
This will also increase quality of our services and reduce risk of click cheating, because with the bank we'll need to verify "Know Your Customer" documents to ensure that each member getting paid is uniquely different from all other members.
 
What this means for you if you use PayPal:
 
For the next 30 days you'll be able to still make purchases with PayPal. We're unable to process withdrawals through PayPal because funds will begin moving into Payza and our own TM World bank account to support withdrawal requests.
 
We do recommend that you start using Payza for purchases for now until we get the TM World Bank completed.
 
If you used PayPal for withdrawals, you'll be able to gain access to your funds with Payza instead during this transition.
 
There will be a space provided for you to enter your payza email address and begin making withdrawals of your earnings through Payza.
 
If you don't have a Payza account, get signed up for FREE here:
 
We'll be moving funds from PayPal to Payza, then our own TM Worldwide Bank.
 
Until the bank is finished getting setup, if you wish to make larger purchases unable to be processed through Payza or SolidTrustPay, you're welcomed to wire the funds to the following bank details:
 
SWIFT CODE: CHASUS33
NAME OF BANK: JP Morgan Chase Bank
ADDRESS:
2610 S STATE ST
SALT LAKE CITY, UT 84115
BANK ROUTING: 124001545
ACCOUNT #: 734785868
 
Charles Scoville
My Address:
4927 Murray Blvd
Apt Z9
Murray, UT
84123

The problem on this story is that even a bank need to have accounts on other banks and at this accounts have to be funds. Charles Scoville does not have some funds and other available values. Would he have some funds than he would have shown it to Paypal and his account would not get terminated. A company, which is running into problems with a bank, would not say it in public for avoiding negative publicity. Such a company will use the available funds for securing their transactions. The same way nobody is able to open a bank anywhere on the world without having some money. You need to have money or properties for securing all of your transactions. There is no difference if you are a private person, a company or a bank.

With the rejection from the risk management department of Paypal Charles Scoville's data will get found at the secret high risk customer list which gets exchanged between the payment processors and banks. For this reason he will not get any new account at another bank or payment processor.

The offered payment method from Trafficmonsoon with Payza is very risky too, because Payza is already subject of investigations of the U.S. Department of Justice. There is written at https://www.justice.gov/usao-dc/victim-witness-assistance/obopay-payza:

Obopay/Payza

"The United States government, including Homeland Security Investigations and the Washington, D.C. Financial Crimes Task Force, is currently conducting a criminal investigation. As part of that investigation, the United States Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia has requested a United States District Judge to pause current civil litigation relating to Payza and Obopay. The Judge has paused the litigation until January 22, 2016. Shortly after that date, additional information will be made available on this website about the status of this investigation.

If you have questions or concerns about your Obopay or Payza account, please email USADC.OBOPAYZA@usdoj.gov or call 202-252-1903. Please include your name, email address, and contact information in your message. Someone will respond to your email or call within 3 business days.

Updated October 21, 2015

How much in need of money Charles Scoville is, gets shown in his blog posting, where he is even using for the Payza promotion his referral link https://secure.payza.com/?ZtQ4708%2f1zX1PKE5FlvQlA%3d%3d. By opening this link appears at the signup page "Referred By AdPageViews". The system from adpageviews.com collapsed last year between July and September. The Alexa statistics from adpageviews.com is showing this:

Alexa statistics from adpageviews.com

The same way will take now Trafficmonsoon. The referral program from Payza:

With our referral program, you can earn money by referring others to Payza. You will be paid $5 USD for the first 10 people you refer to Payza. After the tenth person, you will receive $10 USD for each referral. You will receive your reward money if your referral signs up for a Personal or Business account through your referral link and transacts at least $250 USD. When they fulfill these qualifications, you will be paid through your Payza account within 30 business days.

If you are comparing the system from Trafficmonsoon and AdPageViews with the system from AdSurfDaily than you will not find big differences. One fact about AdSurfDaily can get found:

Ad Surf Daily | USAO-DC | Department of Justice

www.justice.gov/usao-dc/victim-witness-assistance/ad-surf-daily

This website has been established by the United States Department of Justice to assist victims of the Ad Surf Daily Autosurf Ponzi schemes.

That Trafficmonsoon is nothing else than a Ponzi scheme gets shown by the fact that you have to buy AdPacks, click on it and shall get for a $50 AdPack $55 in return. The problem is only that not one advertiser is so stupid and buys advertisements from such a system. For this reason you'll find only the advertisements from the traffic exchange and from a few scammer in the system from Trafficmonsoon. How you'll get the additional $5 earnings in this case? These earnings are coming from new members. As soon not enough new members are buying AdPacks the system will collapse.

Think about it why Charles Scoville hides his identity at the domain registration for all his domains and is now publishing in his blog his address and his bank account? For the domain registration he needs to publish even less information as he has published now. Does such a behavior is making any sense? Maybe the state attorney is now happy because he needs one signature less from a judge for his investigations.

That even the scammers are not so stupid and invest into a collapsing system is getting shown at the screenshot from the Cash Links taken on December 6, 2015:

Screenshot Paying ads from December 6, 2015

Compare it with the screenshot from the Cash Links taken on January 27, 2016:

Screenshot paying ads January 27, 2015

For all this reasons shown above you can be sure that Charles Scoville with his Ponzi scheme Trafficmonsoon tries to win time for maximizing his own earnings. As less people are filing a dispute at their payment processor as more money Charles Scoville will get paid out. Trafficmonsoon will never return because the people will not trust again. All excuses and fairy tales Charles Scoville is publishing have the only purpose to win time and to reduce the amount of people filing a dispute.

Everybody, which has made a payment during the last two month and did get nothing in return, should file a dispute. These ones, which have reinvested all their money, have now lost their amounts.

Fraud & Scam

mysocialbutler.org: Offer, Promotion and Reality - How to Fail in Business

by Rudolf Faix 24. January 2016 08:51

Social Butler LogoYesterday I got a spam entry at my contact form from MySocialButler. I'm not an enemy of spam, but if I get an offer for something what I don't need, because I'm nowhere offering something except the free information about scammers, than I enjoy it to beat back by teasing the spammer.

Let us take first a look what Peter@socialb.com from http://mysocialbutler.org has entered into the contact form at my Fraud-Systems-Blog:

By reading the message above I like to know:

  • Why does he think that I need some help in social media marketing?

  • From which money he writes in the case of my blogs? I'm not offering or selling something. I'm running my blogs only for the one reason of not getting bored.

  • As he writes that MySocialButler is focused on Facebook, where did he find something on my site Fraud & Scam Systems - Blog about fraud and scam systems found at the Internet what can get offered or sold to Facebook members? Maybe I have overseen something or some information can get misinterpreted?

  • As MySocialButler is focused on Facebook, why does he not provide the Facebook address and why does not get MySocialButler found by an search on Facebook?

  • The worst sentence for any business owner and a big marketing fail is "We learn about your business and post content for you to your page that gets you new customers". The spammer and scammer likes to learn in a few days something about a business, where others need to learning years or their full life for it. It seems the scammer is overestimating his own possibilities.

Such an offer, like seen above, seems to be not only a spam. It seems that someone tries to scam hard working people. In any case is it already a big marketing fail. But the fail is even worse if we take a look at some background information which are getting easily provided by using some free tools found at the Internet.

Alexa, an Amazon company, is metering the traffic generated for the websites. Websites, which have a ranking under the 100,000 best visited websites have a plugin from Alexa where the traffic gets counted and sites ranking above 100,000 are estimated from the traffic of users, which are using the Alexa browser plugin and some other parameters. In any case gives the Alexa traffic ranking a good overview about the visitors for a domain.

If we take a look at the Alexa ranking from mysocialbutler.org than we see the very impressing message:

We don't have enough data to rank this website.

That means nobody is visiting the website from mysocialbutler.org. How someone can offer an Internet or social marketing service when he is not able to promote his own website? Who will so stupid in such a case and order some services from such a company like mysocialbutler.org?

How easy it is to generate traffic for a website can get shown by my own example. I'm the owner of the domain wwpa.eu too. I have been running on this site offers for my VoIP provider business in Austria. I have sold this business around 5 years ago. I only did not change the content of the site because I did not had any idea what I shall do with this domain. This behavior resulted in an Alexa ranking of over 1,000,000. Some people visited the site from the Google search results. The old content is until now available. On October 15, 2015 I got the idea that I still have a database of jokes in German language available and I decided to publish a few of these jokes in a blog with the address witze.wwpa.eu. Only this action boosted the Alexa ranking of the domain wwpa.eu to actually 684,151:

Alexa ranking of wwpa.eu

Additional is the ownership of the domain mysocialbutler.org hidden. The owner is using a privacy protection service to hide his registration data. That shows us that the offer is not coming from a serious company - it is coming from a private person, which likes to get rich quickly without doing something.

Each normal person, which is interested in any Internet or Social Marketing Solutions, would already put the message into the spam folder or simple delete it. But if we continue the investigations then we see that the fun is even coming better. The spammer has sent his message by providing an email address from the domain socialb.com.

If we open the website from socialb.com whe see the impressing offer that the domain is may be for sale:

Website socialb.com with the message; "This domain may be for sale"

Even the poor content of the website socialb.com has with 22,938,034 a better Alexa Traffic Rank than mysocialbutler.org:

Alexa ranking of socialb.com showing a ranking of 22,938,034

It seems to be that the owner of the site socialb.com failed already with the content of the site, because why else he would like to sell his domain? The formerly page title from the site socialb.com has been: Find Cash Advance, Debt Consolidation and more at Socialb.com. Get the best of Insurance

The domain ownership of socialb.com is hidden by a privacy protection service. Here are the domain registration data from socialb.com:

At least now 99.9% from the receivers of such a spam message, like Peter@socialb.com has sent out, would trash it without further investigations. This shows that marketing is a foreign word for the site owner from MySocialButler. Maybe he has heard somewhere that marketing is a business and tries now to make money with this information. But everybody can see what he can expect from such marketing skills as the site owner is even not able to promote and generate traffic for his own site. You'll pay for getting nothing in return!

Ok, the domain mysocialbutler.org is nothing else than a forwarding service for the domain mysocialbutler.net, but if we take a look at the Alexa traffic statistics from mysocialbutler.net than we see that even this website does not generate an impressing traffic:

Alexa statistics from mysocialbutler.net

Remember the values from my own German jokes site. The above values are calculated on the result of (Alexa - How engaged are visitors to mysocialbutler.net?):

Bounce Rate: 62.50%
Daily Pageviews per Visitor: 1.70
Daily Time on Site: 1:48

If we take a look at the warnings from ScamAdviser about the site mysocialbutler.net than we see that the site is not really a serious one:

AlertLow Trust Rating. This Site May Not Be Safe to Use.

Summary: All what you can expect from MySocialButler is that you lose money for getting nothing in return. It can be that you get some copied content from other websites with all risks. You need to hope that the content is completely rewritten, otherwise you'll see how the major search engines will rank you down. For such a useless service you have to pay monthly $197, $297 or $995 depending on the count of social network sites and on the count of copied articles. If you are lucky you'll reach the same traffic ranking like MySocialButler where 62.5% of the user are escaping as soon as they have seen the first page and the remaining users are gone in average from your site after 1 minute and 48 seconds.

Update January 28, 2016: Today, I got the same message again by using my contact form. As I have been looking at their site I have seen the best promotion ever:

Something like that can happen too, if you like to use the services from mysocialbutler.net. In such a case you can start from the beginning again. The best recommendation is avoid such services coming from script kiddies and amateurs.

Update Jan. 18, 2017: Links to mysocialbutler.org and to socialb.com removed as the domains don't not exist anymore.

Suspicious Sites

Trafficmonsoon: Revenue Share = Loss Participation?

by Rudolf Faix 19. January 2016 10:17

Last week I have sent a support request about missing cash links to the support from Trafficmonsoon. I got the answer that the cash links are ordered from their members and are getting distributed on a first come first serve principle. Maybe the support staff did not take a look at my logins. As I have nothing else to do I'm normally visiting each Pay To Click site three times a day. If there are at least not once a day some paid clicks available the site has normally some technical problems. Such technical problems had Trafficmonsoon already many times as their programmers are testing their changes on the production system and they don't have some systems for testing. Normally Trafficmonsoon had delivered after their technical problems more cash links for a few days for compensating the losses of their members. For this reason has been the answer from the support staff been surprising and Trafficmonsoon is during the last few days only delivering fractions of cents as daily earnings for their members.

Before a company is running into bankruptcy is the company trying to rescue themselves with all available possibilities. As more the company is running into troubles as more unbelievable is coming their promotion for winning new customers. In the case of Trafficmonsoon.com is it the same with the following screenshot of their promotion (click on the picture to see it full size if necessary):

The above screenshot has been taking from a landing page from trafficmonsoon.com (http://ptclandingpage.com/trafficmonsoon.html - link removed as domain does not exist anymore Jan. 18, 2017). It is not the page from a user of Trafficmonsoon because the referral link is missing. The page got advertised at Clixsense.

The disclaimer in the brackets near to the promoted earnings of $10.395 in a month, which says that "Results not typical. This proof of income is not a guarantee you would earn the same, but would be possible to earn this and more with equal or greater strategy and work ethic." is already confirming the misleading promotion and the scam.

If we take the FAQ from Trafficmonsoon, we'll find there as highest income example: "1000 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 30 days = $3,000 from your referral clicks". That means to reach a payout from $10,000 you need to have 3,333 referrals! I think everybody knows how difficult it is to find and to keep referrals in such systems.

The British statesman Sir Robert Walpole (1676-1745) has been the first Prime Minister in British history. From him is coming the proverb: "Every man has his price." Think now about it if such a company has 20 members which have 3,333 referrals each and each of this referrals would have in average 10 referrals and calculate the monthly payout for 3 level down:

Level Members Earnings from Referrals Own Earnings Sum
Top Level 20 $ 199,980 $ 60 $ 200,040
1. Referral Level 66,660 $ 1,999,800 $ 199,980 $ 2,199,780
2. Referral Level 666,600 $ 19,998,000 $ 1,999,800 $ 21,997,800
3. Referral Level 6,666,000   $ 19,998,000 $ 19,998,000
Total 7,399,280     $ 44,395,620

If we are honest with ourselves, who would not think about a way to disappear for less than 44 million dollars instead of paying it to the members?

In the above example are only the 20 Top level members earning $ 10,000/month. The members of the 1st and 2nd level are only earning $ 33/month and these one from the 3rd level only $ 3/month. Such a construction is very unstable and a lot of members would get lost in a short time.

To generate such earnings you need to find companies which are buying from you 7,399,280 * 10 advertisments per day * 30 days per month * (2,219,784,000 advertisements) for the paid advertisements and the same amount again for the unpaid advertisements which a user has to click for earning from his referrals (in sum 4,439,568,000 advertisements).

In the above payment model needs to get each of this advertisement to get paid with $ 0.02 for paying the clicker with $ 0.01 and his referral with $ 0.01 as the owner from Trafficmonsoon makes the job just for having fun. You'll find that information at their Ad Plans site:

Basically
$1.00 => 50 visitors = $0.02 per click. $0.01 goes to clicker, and $0.01 goes to sponsor
Visitor remains on your site 30 seconds

$1.00 => 25 visitors = $0.04 per click. $0.02 goes to clicker, and $0.02 goes to sponsor
Visitor remains on your site 60 seconds

To qualify for referral click earnings from these links, you must have clicked a minimum of 10 ads in the traffic exchange within the last 24 hours.

As Trafficmonsoon is not earning with the cash links, they are not interested to get some and for this reason is Trafficmonsoon the members cheating with cash links, which are expired just at the moment as the member has to enter the confirmation code after seeing the advertisement (click at the picture for full size):

Expired ad after showing it to the member

Such advertisements can get easily identified. They are appearing in the top left corner of the advertisement list and are mostly higher priced to lead members to click on them. If you don't click on them they are disappearing by themselves after 2 or 3 other clicked advertisements. You can avoid them by start clicking in the middle of the offered advertisement list or by starting to click at the lower right end of the list.

The behavior of this advertisements with the message "Sorry, ad expired" shall look like a programming failure, but is in reality the way how Trafficmonsoon is making money by scamming their users and financing their own expenses from the cash links. it does not make any sense for Trafficmonsoon to show their own site at the cash links because the user is already a member. The Alexa system cannot get impressed by it, because the user is already at the site and the advertisements are getting shown only in a frame. Such a paid advertisement gets shown in the following screenshot - frames inside a frame (click on the pic to enlarge):

Screenshot of showing frames inside a frame with error message

Another way Trafficmonsoon is making money with cash links is with wrong captchas. I have written already in the article "TrafficMonsoon - seems got programmed from absolutely beginners - even the captcha is not working correctly" about it. From time to time you get the error message "Wrong Click!" but you have really entered the captcha correct:

Screenshot of the error message "Wrong Click!"

If this happens to you, simple close the browser window, open a new one, go to https://trafficmonsoon.com/member/overview.php and watch the advertisement again. You'll get a new captcha, which is working.

At first I have been thinking that these are the errors from underpaid programmers or programming beginners, but as we can see has the madness a method and a reason - making money for the owner of Trafficmonsoon!

Trafficmonsoon has the opinion to watch their count-down bar is more important than to scroll down at the advertisement. This contradicts their sentence at their offer of paid clicks, where is written: "Cash links are a great way to show other members what else you're involved with, and invite them to join you.". In this case I remember only the following quotation: "Please forgive them, they are not knowing what they are doing.":

Screenshot that they are not knowing what they are doing

Another nice advertisement is the following one. I don't think that anyone pays to show an empty page and pays $0.02 for viewing it:

Screenshot from an empty website where I got $0.02 for viewing it

The owner from trafficmonsoon.com likes even to impress with false information. In the following screenshot he likes to impress with the huge amount of traffic they are receiving or generating. The problem is only that nobody shall believe this because if the webserver can show the content of this site then he would be able to show the real content too. Overloaded webserver are acting different by simple stopping sending some responses to the browser and not a sorry message like in the following screenshot shown:

Screenshot with the message "Our website has become overloaded with traffic."

Coming back to the calculation example from the beginning where we need around 4 billion advertisements viewed to reach the monthly income of $10,000 for 20 people each. Let us take a look where the traffic from Trafficmonsoon is getting generated. A view at the Alexa global ranking - Adience Geography tell us the following:

alexa.com Audience Geography for trafficmonsoon.com

We see in the screenshot above that the main traffic from Trafficmonsoon is coming from the "poor" countries Russia, India, Ukraine, Brazil, Mexiko, etc. Sure advertisement is getting done all over the world because companies like to sell their products. But are these companies from these countries spending between $ 0.02 and $ 0.04 per view? Like shown above is the generated traffic useless because members are even not allowed to scroll inside the page. The most viewers from the advertisements are only interested to get paid and not into the product. For this reason is Trafficmonsoon a closed system, which does not get accepted from the advertising industry. I see how one advertising company would tease the other one with the words: "You really need already to pay that someone is watching your advertisements?". Sorry, but here is it going about the reputation from the advertising and creative industry. Already for this reason you'll not find some real advertisements at the Pay To Click (PTC) websites.

You'll find only advertisements from the kind of getting quick rich at the Paid To Click (PTC) sites. Some users are hoping to find some people which are more stupid than themselves and are paying for a dream. These stupid ones are already less accessing the system from trafficmonsoon.com like it get shown in the Alexa global traffic statistics:

Alexa Traffic Ranks for trafficmonsoon.com

The above Alexa global ranking of the website trafficmonsoon.com shows us the flash in the pan from the rise and fall of Trafficmonsoon. During the last three months has Trafficmonsoon 194 places lost in the global ranking of the world wide websites.

If we take a look at the next screenshot where the question "How engaged are visitors to trafficmonsoon.com?" gets answered, than we see that the pageviews per visitor got reduced more than 52% during the last three months and the bounce rate increased with 4% in the same time:

Alexa - How engaged are visitors to trafficmonsoon.com?

The search traffic for Trafficmonsoon increased during the same time by 7%, but take a look which keywords are getting used to find trafficmonsoon.com. The search traffic is only coming from visitors, which are too lazy to enter the full web address for trafficmonsoon.com:

Alexa.com - Where do trafficmonsoon.com's visitiors com from? - Search traffic

As expected is the most of the traffic for trafficmonsoon.com coming from Google, Facebook and other Paid To Click (PTC) sites. That means a lot of people are getting paid at clixsense.com and neobux.com for viewing the advertisements from Trafficmonsoon:

alexa.com - Upstream sites for trafficmonsoon.com

As a lot of advertisements with fake screenshots of earnings are done for Trafficmonsoon in the social networks, I like to show my real earnings (not edited) from trafficmonsoon.com for daily clicking on their ads since a few months:

Trafficmonsoon earnings page for the work of a few months

Charles Scoville calls himself to be the CEO from Trafficmonsoon. If it is true or not cannot get verified because the site trafficmonsoon.com is registered with a hidden ownership. Which kind of person Charles Scoville is gets shown at his other domains with the names charlesscoville.net, charlesscoville.org and charlesscoville.com. In my opinion is he a man with an exaggerated craving. This gets shown already at the chosen domain names, where he likes to build up a brand by using his names. This would be difficult because he has been the owner of the following sites, which got already shutdown:

  • adscashfast.com
  • banrev.com
  • buxsecure.com
  • buxunleashed.com
  • eternalifebux.com
  • foreverbux.com
  • freehitxchange.com
  • inboxbux.com
  • infinitybux.com
  • powerfulbux.com
  • trophybux.com
  • tviptc.com
  • ulaunchformula.com
  • ultimatepowerboost.com
  • wealthenginex.com

Trafficmonsoon is a closed system, where the members of the system are generating useless traffic for each other. The system is nothing else than a Ponzi scheme which will break down as soon as not enough new members are joining it to pay the existing members. Trafficmonsoon promises 10% earnings in a short time for the investor and 10% earnings for the referrer of the investor.

Scammed victims from Trafficmonsoon are getting found at Google. Under these victims you can find Shoemoney with a loss of $125 too.

Other reviews about Trafficmonsoon can get found at:

At Facebook we find a page where 12 hours ago got written:

Still no news from that infamous PayPal meeting yet!
Why don't you phone them up Charles, like an enterprising lady called Jane who contacted Paypal in Australia directly.
Guess what they told her?
PAYPAL HAVE FROZEN TRAFFIC MONSOONS ACCOUNT.
Not exactly how Charles told it is it? Remember? He said he VOLUNTARILY LEFT THEM. Lies. Lies. Lies!
But don't take our word for it, PHONE PAYPAL yourselves!

Facebook postings need to get carefully interpreted. Especially if the author hides himself behind a pseudonym like in this case. For the case if it is true what is written there than Trafficmonsoon has already a big problem. Paypal does not freeze an account without reason.

 

easy-money-systemz.com declares themselves to be a scam and Ponzi scheme

by Rudolf Faix 28. November 2015 06:44

Easy Money Systemz LogoWith their email from November 27, 2015 are declaring the owner of the domain easy-money-systemz.com themselves to run a Ponzi sheme and to be scammer. As easy-money-systemz.com is not able to sell advertisings they try now to earn money with membership fees. I wish them in any case a happy bankruptcy party.

The fact is that they have changed their terms and conditions without a prior notice for every member. This is against the European Cosumer Protection Law. In such a case where a company is changing their terms and conditions they have to announce it within an acceptable timeframe and for the case that someone does not accept the changed term and condition they are allowed to terminate the contract with an compensation for the consumer if he loses something. In the case of easy-money-systemz.com would it be to pay the actual balance to the user. It even does not matter in such a case if the users are under the minimum payout or not. The consumer protection law does not make any difference between a paid and a free member from a site. As Easy Money Systemz (EMS) does not care about the law makes them already not trustworthy and shows that EMS is even no company. It seems that only script kiddies are running the site.

Let us take first a look at the changes which EMS has announced:

If you are taking a look at the above statements you'll get it easily that EMS (Earn Money Systems) shall only generate money for the owners. This fact would not be bad because everybody likes to earn money. The problem is only the way they have chosen with misleading promotion and the selling of memberships for giving nothing in return to their members. They even like to earn with their paid to click system from their members.

Advertising agencies are not taking advantage from Paid To Click (PTC) offers. For this reason the PTC providers are advertising themselves and other providers. This is a zero sum game in this kind of industry. For the advertising agencies is it important that users with interest on the product and with enough money to buy the product are clicking on their advertisements. Users which getting paid for watching their promotion have no interest in the product. Such PTC users are only watching the advertisement for the reason that they get paid and will not buy the product. This fact can get easily seen in the Alexa statistics by looking at the part from the countries where the visitors are coming to the site easy-money-systemz.com:

Alexa Visitor by Country statistics about easy-money-systemsz.com

The only country with a little better income situation listed above is Croatia. All other countries from the above list are called "low wage" countries. Not one member from all the listed countries will buy a product which he does not really need from an advertising over the Internet.

The fact that their visitors are coming from other PTC sites and from their stupid members, which are thinking that they can get rich by using their system gets shown if we take a look at the Alexa statistics "Upstream Sites":

Alexa Statistics Upstream Sites easy-money-systemz.com

The above statistics shows that at least 11.6% of senseless traffic is coming from other traffic exchange sites like neobux.com, trafficmonsoon.com and hqbux.com. Only 3% of their traffic is getting generated from the misleading promotion on Facebook from their members and from themselves. This fact shows only that the Facebook users are not so stupid as they are thinking.

From all of their traffic are 4% traffic from Google, but only 1.5% is traffic from the Google search. In the Alexa Search Traffic statistics get shown that even at least 29.14% from the search traffic gets generated from bots. Or does someone believe that one user is searching for "ems ptc", "easy money systemz" or their website name?

Alexa statistics Search traffic for easy-money-systemz.com

As not one advertising agency or any real company is advertising at their site are they not able to trade with regular advertisings. They are only exchanging in exchange some other PTC (Paid To Click) sites. This is a zero sum game and does not generate an income for the owner of the site. The only income for them is the membership fees, rented referrals, bought referrals and maybe some other scam offers.

I have been a free member from November 2 until November 27 because I liked to try such offers and report afterwards about it. I'm not investing any money in such systems. I'm only testing the free membership and not more in such a case. During my membership time EMS has even reduced the highest Paid To Click rate from $0.01 to $0.007. During these 26 days I have been able to collect a sum of $1.8490 (nearly one dollar and ninety cents). More has been not possible because there did not got more advertisements got shown. If we calculate it for 30 days then the possible earnings for 30 days are around $2.10.

With the changes of their terms and conditions you'll make in any case a loss as a free member because you need to buy a membership for at least $2.75 for 30 days that you can get paid. Remember the sentence "FREE-you will need to upgrade to BRONZE to make your first withdrawal from EMS" from their email. As you get only 5% from your direct referrals earnings you'll need at least 8 referrals for working for free for Easy Money Systemz. You are even not able to use your earnings for buying the membership, to rent or to buy referrals. That makes the complete system not trustworthy and to a scam. As they are not able to earn something by selling advertisements are they in need of money for paying earlier investors, which got cought by dream ROI and earning rates. This is called to be a Ponzi scheme.

As scammer are too lazy to use their brain this scammer is even promoting his statistics:

Easy Money Systemz statistics

I think that his members are not really happy as show in the following calculation:

$16,448.34 paid money divided by 60,574 unhappy members gives in average a payout of $0.27 per user since one years the domain is active. There can get nothing found which can make members happy!

I replied to their change in the rules and conditions like seen below:

Rudolf Faix <rudolffaix@gmail.com> Fri, Nov 27, 2015 at 12:35 PM
To: Easy Money Systemz Admin <system-admin@easy-money-systemz.com>
Thanks that you are declaring yourself as a Ponzi scheme and a scam site: "FREE-you will need to upgrade to BRONZE to make your first withdrawal from EMS"
 
Bottom line: If there is a fee, it is a SCAM

The only response I got is shown at the following screenshot:

For the case someone has been so stupid and invested in this scam system he should stop as soon as possibe and shall try to get his money back.

Such a good service needs to hide their domain ownership by a Identity Protection service. The overwhelming users can kill the domainowner and for this he needs to hide himself in anonymity:

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:

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

this guy is ripping people off and must be stopped. after i signed up and completed offers using my credit card i had over 50 dollars in my account (which you need before you can request a check to be sent to you). now i cant logg on my account is blocked. after l search this guy he has his fingers in alot of scams. fake cds how-to-get rich scams. im taking this action further! also more paid survey sites, which im guessing all these sites belong to him after i searched them and found his name behind most of them.

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.
