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).

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:

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!

Fraud & Scam

Very Suspicious: tempoquiz.com - a site with hidden ownership and hosting in the Ukraine

by Rudolf Faix 28. June 2015 07:21

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.

TempoQuizDuring the login procedure at whosurvey.com opens tempoquiz.com in a new browser tab. TempoQuiz promises that "you get $35 for each involved friend and 15% from his earnings and when the sum is $1000 on your account you can get your money in 9 days. You can get your money every day at work hours GMT, after previous month application for payment will create automatically."

For signing up you need only to choose a login name, a password and you need to provide a Paypal account. Other information are not requested.

I tried to enter a survey but I got the following surprise as I tried to play the videos:

member site of tempoquiz.com

The translation of the message is: "This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.". We will see if there are tomorrow some videos for the survey available.

During clicking on the fourth survey the site fifty-news.com got opened in a new browser tab.

The site is hosted in Vinnytsya, Ukraine by using the same proxy service from Australia for hiding the ownership of the domain like whosurvey.com, wheresurvey.com and vacantsurvey.com.

Fraud & Scam

Very Suspicious: wheresurvey.com - a site with hidden owner data hosted in Kharkiv, Ukraine

by Rudolf Faix 28. June 2015 05:51

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.

SurveyThe Facebook member Gary Bailey promoted today in the group Work From Home Online the site wheresurvey.com with a prove of his earnings since June 1, 2015. He had only overseen that the domain wheresurvey.com got registered on June 19, 2015 and he could not earn something from this site before the site got online. For this he had only proved that he has promoted fake information.

offer from whereurvey.com found at Facebook

wheresurvey.com is a copy of whosurvey.com including the same videos for the surveys. The only difference is the minimum payout at wheresurvey.com is $800. The site is hosted in Kharkiv, Ukraine like the WhoSurvey and they are using the same privacy protection service from Australia.

After signing up at WhoSurvey I got $30 as sign-up bonus. I rated two time the same Loctide video and one time the Clash of Clans video. So I don't expect to get paid for this few minutes work. By login in to the site the site the homepage from trastnews.com got opened in a new tab. Maybe the owners from WhoSurvey are using now their system to make some promotion for others.

Fraud & Scam

John Chow dot Com - how good is he really?

by Rudolf Faix 24. June 2015 16:23

John ChowJohn Chow is calling himself at his Facebook profile John Chow dot Com. That is a reason for me to take a closer look at his work and his offers. First I have taken a look into his free eBook, what he offers.

The title of this eBook is "The ultimate online profit model" with the subtitle "The Ultimate Guide to Making Six-Figure Monthly Income on the Internet and Living The Dot Com Lifestyle". The Acrobat file has 50 pages. After title, content and self-congratulation the eBook starts at page 15 with an explanation of "The Affiliate Marketing Model" and the disadvantages of this model. At page 22 starts "The Affiliate Marketing Model That I Use". There he explains the model that you should be a real reseller of the products, create your own brand and collect the email addresses for your marketing activities.This system is absolutely correct because the money is not made with the teaser or promotion articles. The money is made with the repeating satisfied customers.

At page 24 he starts already with the tools you should use for your marketing activities. Don't worry he is a good businessman and has not forgotten to add his affiliate links to the tools. The tools, which he recommends are AWeber and LeadPages. For hosting of the high expected traffic he recommends the service from HostGator. As each online shop needs to describe their products and make promotion for it he is recommending his own services IM John Chow, Blogging with John Chow, WP Blog Videos and Work From No Home.

A dot Com millionaire need to get a a lot of traffic to this sites. Such sites should rank nearly to Google (Alexa global ranking #1), Facebook (Alexa global ranking #2), LinkedIn (Alexa global ranking #14), etc.

IM John Chow:

Building a successful online empire from scratch

A typical site how is it today normal for affiliate marketing sites. You have a caption - in this case in the background graphics integrated - and a video, which is starting immediately. With other words nothing what search engines can use for generating their index for the site. The only machine readable text is the membership fee "Just $47.00 (Plus $47 a month if you remain a member of IM John Chow)" and the disclaimer from ClickBank at the bottom of the site. Such a site is normally a big secret in the World Wide Web. If you do not promote the site by yourself permanently you'll not get some visitors to this site. This get shown by taking a look at the global ranking from Alexa:

Alexa ranking of imjohnchow.com

A global Alexa ranking of 1,500,000 equals to around 10 unique visitors a month, around 1% will click on a promotion link and from this one, which are clicking on a promotion link will only 0.5% buy the product if the product has a good promotion. With other words this site cannot be the source of his income. If you like to close or leave the page a script will hindrance you and like to give you a special offer. After confirming two popups you are able to leave the page.

 

Blogging with John Chow:

This is a special site. Here shows us John Chow that he even does not know that there are server site scripts available. If you are using an ad blocker in your browser, then you get the following view:

an impressing screenshot of bloggingwithjohnchow.com

As we see the dot Com millionaire has no real content on the site. Such a site is useless and will not bring any visitor from search engines. Even this site is a big secret in the World Wide Web. The global Alexa ranking shows it too:

Alexa ranking of bloggingwithjohnchow,com

The above Alexa ranking shows us that this is not really the site from where the millions of dollars are coming. For this we need to take the next one.

 

WP Blog Videos:

At this site we see again that John Chow or his web designer has no idea about the Internet and the functionality of search engines because the caption of the site is a graphic, which cannot get read from the search engines. At least this site contains more text, which can get indexed from the search engines. Anyway the content is nothing else than the usual self praising and he like to sell on this site a training for blogging with WordPress in seven modules for $97.

WPBlogVideos

One of this modules contains SEO (Search Engine Optimizing). I think about which content the SEO training can have if John Chow proves already at his own sites that does not have any idea about search engines. OK, this site has more machine readable content then the other ones, but the Alexa global ranking show us that even this site is not the source of his income - the site has the nearly the same ranking like the site imjohnchow.com:

Alexa ranking of wpböpgvodeos.com

 

Work From No Home:

By opening this site we get a nice surprise from the WOT (Web Of Trust) browser plugin:

WOT warning showed at WorkFromNoHome.com

 

If we continue going to the site we get the next surprise (I have used another browser):

Sold Out

This site is not his income too. Why does he name it in this case in his eBook? Only for filling the space?

After seven pages of unbelievable praising his sites, which have no success, he starts promoting the business from Matt Lloyd of Perth, Australia: My Online Business Empire" (mobe.com) and "My Top Tier Business" (mttb.com). This promotion starts at page 31 and ends at page 46. This promotion is highly exaggerated that it only can be a SCAM. I'll analyze the sites during the next days.

Summary: John Chow started with blogging very early as the blogs have been coming up. He made a good impression with his blog and he has chosen the right topic at the right time. His first book has been "Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul". He generated a few more books about getting rich from his blogs, The books are getting offered at Amazon. I think that he made a good income with his first book, but like every time a followup is never so good as the premiere. A copy of this idea with the same topic is already not possible, because there are already too many competitors at the market available. The trial attempts from above are showing us that he is searching a new income method. He tries it by creating a brand with his name. At the above ranking values we can see how successful he is by doing this. He seems to be a good writer but the ranking values are telling us another story about his attempt to be a business man.

As we can see at his sites he does not have any idea about Internet business and SEO. We can find a lot of his fails at his Facebook page (.pdf (79.64 mb)) too. It is no shame to fail - you have to learn by your own mistakes. It is only cheaper to learn by the mistakes of others. In the case of John Chow I ask myself if his "Ultimate Online Profit Model" is based on experience or is the source only his fantasy? Where ends the promotion and where starts the reality?

The only one of his sites, which has a good ranking is johnchow.com. My opinion is that this site gets visited from the readers and fans of his books. These people are hoping to get rich too. Especially he has the best ranking in India - a low wage country where most of the people are very poor. He gives to the visitors of his page the dream of getting fast and easily rich. The only one which is getting rich with such a system is site owner and the people on the top of the legal pyramid.
