Scam: brainboosterguide.com - hidden domain ownership

by Rudolf Faix 6. July 2015 09:49

My opinion is that the sender of the email shall try the BrainBoosterGuide by himself first. Such a stupid spam email like this I did not receive for a long time. The sender address says already a lot about the source. It seems that the domain livehigh.co.in will be a new spam domain because the domain got registered 2 days ago on July 4, 2015 and has sent immediately spam emails.

The spam email I have received:

Email from brainboosterguide.com

For the case that someone likes to trace back the email. Here is the header of the email:

Scam that BrainBoosterGuide can cure Alzheimer and Dementia

I find it abhorrent to do business with the hope of chronic and incurable ill people and their relatives. My opinion is that such unscrupulously individuals need to get tortured, imprisoned and the key needs to get thrown away.

The Alexa global ranking for the domain brainboosterguide.com is not really impressing:

The clickbank disclaimer is not missing at the affiliate site from brainboosterguide.com it is for me already a trademark for scam:

Fraud & Scam

risingtraffic.com - a waste of time and/or money

by Rudolf Faix 4. July 2015 10:50

Rising TrafficIf you are thinking logical then you'll get it that risingtraffic.com is the same time-wasting and/or money-wasting system like trafficmonsoon.com.

Each advertiser or advertising agency likes to get clicks because the user is interested into the product. Such user will get easier to be a customer then someone, which clicks only for the reason for getting paid or to get some clicks on his own advertisement. Such one will even not read the content of the site. He will automatize the clicks or wait until he will be able to take the next opportunity for getting more. For this is the scam already included into the system from RisingTraffic and TrafficMonsoon

The scam gets very good explained in the FAQ from RisingTraffic:

You do not need to pay for anything before using our traffic exchange services however as a free member you will only receive 1 visitor credit for 2 sites visited. After purchasing our services you will receive credit at every visit.

You have to buy AdPacks which will give you a revenue sharing position up to $39.2. You must click at least 10 ads in 24 hours to be liable for the revenue sharing position. The more the referrals the more you will earn.

There are really 4 ways to earn with RisingTraffic

  1. paid to click
  2. using ad services to generate leads to make money in your primary business
  3. revenue sharing
  4. direct sales commissions

(10 % commision is only for referral purchases.)

As each one which has something to hide hides RisingTraffic the ownership of their domain. If we take a look at Alexa then we can see where their traffic is coming from:

RisingTraffic.com Countries

If you take a look at the above table then you'll see in which countries your advertising will get seen if you make advertising with RisingTraffic. There are not really the rich countries in the list, which can bring you an income from your advertising. The only income you get is if you buy AdPacks and click on the advertising of others. For this reason is the system nothing else than a pyramid system, where you can even earn 10% from your referrals. The open question is: How long it will take until the system will break down? As the owners of the site are expecting the break down they have hidden their identity.

Fraud & Scam

Very Suspicious: fifty-news.com - $7 for reading news - hosted in the Ukraine

by Rudolf Faix 30. June 2015 10:37

Update July 1, 2015: This site is only a time-waster. Be happy that you wasted only time and not money by participating at this sites hosted in the Ukraine for the case you signed up already. If you did not sign-up then use your time for something better.

The reason is described in the article Phishing: Survey & News Sites hosted at the Ukraine .

FiftyNewsfifty-news.com declares themselves as a news promoter. The domain fifty-news.com is registered using an Australian privacy protection service with the Russian domain registration organization. The domain is 10 days old - she got registered during June 19, 2015. The site fifty-news.com is hosted in the Ukraine:

 
IP Address Country Region City ISP
 
46.28.65.218 Ukraine  Kharkivs'ka Oblast' Kharkiv Itl Company

You earn by reading the news on the site. For each news you read you get $7. You can read about 35 fresh news on the site every day. You get your payment at any moment if you have the minimum sum. For that you need to enter Nickname and your account number from PayPal or Payza. Payments will be sent every 14 workdays. Minimum sum to pay out is $2300.

There is a referral program on the site. Spread your referral link in Facebook or other social networks and get $40 for every involved partner and 20% from his everyday earnings.

What makes the site suspicious:

  • The site likes to make the impression that she is already a long time available. For this is written at the site that you can earn from $5 until $9 for each news you read and in the news bar with the date May 13: "Dear Users! Bonus for reading news is $7 now!" and with date June 8: "Dear Users, glad to tell you: get $40 for each involved partner till the end of June". The site got registered on June 19, 2015.

  • The news for which you get paid are looking strange too. They even don't have a link to the source. Here are three examples:
    Fire hits Japanese bullet train
    At least two people have been seriously injured when a man started a fire on a Shinkansen bullet train in Japan, officials say.

    China stocks are giving investors a nasty case of whiplash
    China stocks resumed their volatile decline on Tuesday, compounding losses that have erased trillion of dollars in market value in recent weeks.

    Injured Tunisia Britons flown home
    Four British tourists seriously injured in the Tunisian beach attack have been flown back to the UK by the RAF.
  • Not one news company will pay for such a way of displaying their news. It needs to be a promotion for the company and an invitation to their site that the news company will pay for it.

  • fifty-news.com uses the same privacy protection service like tempoquiz.com, whosurvey.com, vacantsurvey.com and wheresurvey.com.

It seems that fifty-news.com has found a lot of stupid people which are trusting to their promotion - there is no other way how the Alexa global ranking cannot get explained:

Very Suspicious: trastnews.com - get $7 for reading news - hidden ownership

The reason is described in the article Phishing: Survey & News Sites hosted at the Ukraine.

TrastNewstrastnews.com is hosted in the Ukraine (IP; 195.54.162.155, Coutry: Ukraine, Region: Vinnyts'ka Oblast, City: Vinnytsya, ISP: Pe Dobrogivskiy Muroslav Petrovich), uses the same privacy protection service like tempoquiz.com, whosurvey.com, vacantsurvey.com, multitrendo.com and wheresurvey.com. The domain got created June 19, 2015 (10 days ago).

For registering with trastnews.com you need to enter the following personal information: First name, Last name and one of the payment system ID's from PayPall, Payza or Scrill. The registration is free of charge and there is no membership fee.

The pay out works at trastnews.com individually during 14 days if you have a minimum sum on your balance $2300, before inquiring for pay out you should be sure that you have got a minimum sum and check your payment information.

For the affiliate program of trastnews.com you need to involve new users through your individual affiliate link. You get a profit $35 for every involved user and 15% of his daily earnings.

The news, which you need to read, are looking like the following one:

After reading news, solve a simple math task and get your bonus. You need not follow the links inside the news - in the above case are the news links from USA today and Google News. I cannot say how many news you can read daily and in which frequency the news are changing. After signing today up I could read 15 news today and got $ 105 accounted.

At the About Company site from trastnews.com is written:

The company was founded in Brooklyn, NEW YORK city in 2014. At present it is one of the leading news agency of the USA.

News sites which want to increase the quantity of customers and raise their rating, appeal to trastnews Company. We successfully work on the territory of the USA and in many European countries.

Exact the above statements are that what makes trastnews.com very suspect:

  • A newly founded news company (maybe a little bit more than one year old) will be not able to be one of the leading news companies in the USA in this time.
  • An U.S. news company will not wait more than one year for registering their own domain
  • A leading U.S. news company will have more content on their site
  • An U.S. news company will not host their website in the very difficult region part of the world - the Ukraine and use the Russian domain registry organization.
    A leading U.S, news company would be proud about their name and will not hide herself behind an Australian privacy protection service
  • A leading U.S. news company will have a better Alexa global ranking then trastnews.com:

Update July 6, 2015: I have reached the minimum payout and made a payout request. I don't expect a payment, but for making a serious report I need to give them a try. I'll update this posting as soon as I get the money on my Paypal account or the 14 days waiting time are over.

Data Account number Sum Status
2015-07-06 03:20:10 RFAIX@WWPA.COM $2394 in processing

Update July 20, 2015: I did not receive more than a phishing email for my paypal account.

Fraud & Scam

vivatic.com - Titus Sharpe - outside of the UK useless

by Rudolf Faix 28. June 2015 10:34

Vivaticvivatic.com seems to be a good visited site, but outside of the United Kingdom useless. You have first to spend money by taking some offers before you are coming to the interesting parts of the site. Alternative you have some surveys, where you can participate only if you have a domestic address at the United Kingdom. Even the offers are useless outside the United Kingdom. As I have entered my address from the Philippines I could not really check all the offered functions. The sign-up is free, but if you are not living at the UK it is only a waste of time.

The surveys even don't get pre-filtered and if a link to a survey is functioning then you get the message that you are not available to participate because you don't have an UK address.

Here is a screenshot how it should work, but you have to complete the listed steps at the right site one after each other:

Vivatic LogIn Screen

 

After signing up you have to chose Vivatic-Choose-your-favourite-3-from-the-UKs-top-offers.pdf (161.64 kb) before you can do something really on the site. If you not chose some offers then you get the message: "You’ve not yet entered our Bonus Bonanza Enter now to grab a bonus £0.50 for every £2.50 you earn through surveys until 12:00 on Monday June 29th"

The most of the available surveys are ending up with the message: "This partner requires all members to have validated their Paypal address and come from the UK. Please validate your PayPal address to access this survey.".

Some are even bringing the following message:

Server Error
404 - File or directory not found.
The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

And one brought:

Warning! Could be unsafe!
 

Adguard has blocked access to this page

This web page at www.surveysavers.co.uk, has been reported as a phishing page and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

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.

With other words the site has everything what it makes it useless. If you think that you can earn by promoting the site, then you'll get the next surprise about the conditions for referring a friend:

Refer A Friend
Recommend Vivatic to your friends and earn £2 for every friend who signs up and earns £10.

Note that the £10 can't include earnings from this referal scheme

As it is not possible to earn on the site something if you are living outside of the UK, is it in the most countries nothing else than an illegal pyramid system. Maybe it is possible to earn something if you are living in the United Kingdom,but I think you are spending more for taking the offers from the site than you can earn!

If we take a look at the Alexa Site statistics from vivatic.com, then we see that the most traffic is coming to the site from India:

Alexa ranking of vivatic.com

The huge traffic from India makes the ranking. As mostly the people from India are not reading the conditions would they be very surprised if they see that they are making a lot promotion for the site and earn nothing for their affiliate links.

Additional are the people very fast by deleting inactive accounts. I had signed up at June 22, 2015, have taken a look into the system 2 or 3 times and as I tried to log in today (June 28) after receiving a promotion (spam) email my account has been already deleted. Funny is that they did not delete my email address from their promotion system. For me is the site SCAM and scammer are normally too lazy for using their brain and for a serious business!
