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:

uento - you need a lot of patience until you are able to earn a small amount

by Rudolf Faix 10. August 2015 10:52

uentoThe promotion from Uento is very misleading. You can earn money and you get paid, but you need a lot of patience. Their description in the Google Playstore:

Uento is the best way to get rewarded by collecting android apps and it also helps to keep them organized. It's simple and easy to find new exiting apps and the best thing: UNLIMITED FREE POINTS EVERY DAY!

Very misleading is the sentence: "UNLIMITED FREE POINTS EVERY DAY!". I have not seen in the last 2 months that you can get there unlimited free points. The possibilities have been very limited.

The idea behind Uento is not so bad. App developers can bring up their installation count by paying small fees and get on this way a better ranking in the Google playstore. Depending on the wishes of the app developer the users are getting 3 points just for installing the app, 5 points for installing and run the app one time or 8 points for installing the app, run it one time and keep it on the device for 3 days.

Update January 29, 2016: I have now uninstalled Uento as the app told me that I'm locked for two days because I have changed my country. Sorry, but I think that is only an excuse for them for not having some apps to install. I have even not left my house and I did not restart my phone. This bug happened already a few times to me, but now the idiotic programmer from Uento can tease himself in future. He is even too stupid to show you the apps which are in your area available and running on your device. With other words is the the programmer from Uento nothing else than a script kiddie without any global knowledge. A technical knowledge about Android is completely missing and he tries to limit down the users until his scripts are crashing and resulting in reboots of the phone. It seems that he is even not able to secure his collected data because otherwise how it would come that the message "You have changed your country" can appear?

The idiot does even not know that the world has airplanes which are going from country to country and you can carry a mobile phone with you.

End of the update.

If you like to try the app by yourself then you need a Paypal account. Payment is only done to a Paypal account. In such a case follow the steps:

  1. not recommendedDownload and install the Uento App from the Google playstore (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.app.uento&hl=en) FREE OF CHARGE
  2. Sign-up with your name, email and password
  3. You get an email from waypedia with a validation code
    Copy the validation copy code into uento -> menu -> myprofile and press verify email with code 
  4. Start installing apps from the Uento program

Each time you reach 250 points you transfer $2.50 to your Paypal account. A payment proof gets found at the end of this article. The payment gets done within seconds.

If you reach level 20 you'll get your own referral code. You'll get 2 points for each installation from referral level 1 and 1 point for each installation from referral level 2.

uento offers

The problem is only that not all apps are with all versions of Android compatible. Uento likes to force the installation of all the apps. You are as user not able to mark an app as not compatible with your device. You see in the following screenshot that the app Buzzapp is not compatible with my Samsung Note II (GT-7100N). The same is valid for the apps Global Classifieds and Global Business Directory! You can see it at the following screenshots:

App not compatibledevice status Samsung GT-7100N - Galaxy Note II

I signed up at Uento on June 22, 2015. It needed until July 19, 2015 until I collected enough points (250 points) for a $2.50 payment and I got my referral code as soon as I reached the level 20 - that has been on August 8, 2015.

The problems I have described in my article from July 15 "Time-Waster: uento.com - Nicholas Thompson - Apogaeis Technologies - apogaeis.com" are mostly gone. The last weeks a few updates of the Uento software happened. It seems that the installation recognition got improved because the last "FAILED" has happened to me on July 4, 2015.

Suspicious Sites

Zip Nada Zilch - ZNZ - zipnadazilch.com - declares themselves in their terms and conditions to be a scammer

by Rudolf Faix 27. July 2015 06:41

Zip Nada ZilchYou can compare the site from Zip Nada Zilch (ZNZ) with a mall where you can enter and find a lot of different shops. If one of the shops is a fraudster is not the mall owner guilty. In the case of ZNZ you can only say that ZNZ did not make any background check about the offers in this case. The question is only if they need to make a background check? In any case such a fraudster in their mall makes the reputation of the mall not better and as ZNZ is offering free of charge but only in exchange against your personal data access to this mall they are in any case partly responsible for that what in the mall happens.

ZNZ is operating only in the 50 U.S. states, Canada and UK. As you have to complete some offers before you can earn money by promoting the services from ZNZ are getting only membership requests from people living in the U.S., Canada and UK are getting accepted. Before you sign up with them you should check if the offers on the sites from ZNZ are interesting and suitable for you, because you have to complete between 1 and 20 offers before you are able to promote the services from ZNZ for earning money. The ofered services are not free of charge and can get in sum expensive for you. Nowhere you can get money for free and nobody can spend more money than he earns if he don't like to run into bankruptcy.

In this case even the method, which is described in the member area of Income Jack does not really help you to get a membership at ZNZ because you have to complete some of their offers. For this is the offer from Income Jack a misleading promotion. Here is the description from Income Jack:

For those of you outside of USA, Canada and UK:

ZipNadaZilch was initially intended for affiliates in the USA, Canada and the UK however, if you live outside these areas you might still be able to promote ZNZ, as long as you are in an area served by PayPal.

While ZNZ does not “guarantee” that all international users will be able to refer others to ZNZ to earn “gifts” (referral commissions), they may allow you to do so.

You will need to Contact Them HERE, and simply tell them what country that you are in and ask for permission to exchange one qualified referral for your own qualification. DO THIS BEFORE YOU CREATE YOUR ZNZ ACCOUNT. You need to be “unreferred” at the time of making this request.

Here is a suggested wording for the request that you could send do them. Please vary slightly to fit yourself and edit “[YOUR COUNTRY]” and “[YOUR NAME]”:

— START COPY —-

Hello.

I am located in [YOUR COUNTRY] but I would like to refer USA, CAN and UK users to your http://bigcash.zipnadazilch.com to complete offers.

I have not created my account yet as I was told that users in my location may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Those that I refer are people that are my email subscribers, all opt-in subscribers who have requested information from me about free online offers or low-cost income opportunities.

Would you please allow me to refer people to you, and provide instructions as to how to proceed?

Thank you so much.

Sincerely,

[YOUR NAME]

 

—- END COPY —-

This would mean that you wouldn’t need to complete the trial offers to qualify… you can’t anyway due to your location.

If ZNZ approves you, you will simply need to refer USA users to earn referral commissions (Or CAN and UK users)

Again, this is not guaranteed. ZNZ has communicated that they do allow this on an individual basis. You do need to contact them first to get “ok” to do so.

If they ask what you will do to promote the offers simply tell them “Personal referrals, via email and personal networking.” There is no point in mentioning IncomeJack because they won’t know what you’re talking about. IncomeJack is simply a system I created to assist you in your personal networking, to save yourself time in explaining and selling. IncomeJack’s process is considered personal networking.

Even if ZNZ agrees with your request you have to complete some of their offers before you are able to promote their service. Actually you would be only in a good shape in this case if you need to register a new domain. In this case you can use their actual offer from Godaddy, which gives you the necessary one point you need for promoting the services from ZNZ. All other actual offers from bigcash.nadazilch.com are more or less only available in Canada, U. S. and UK.

You see the misleading promotion is done from the affiliates of ZNZ with their time-waster videos and not from ZNZ itself. In any case this one which is working with fraudster need not wonder himself that he will get called to be a fraudster too. This fraudster image gets confirmed if you are looking at an example offer from their homepage. It is nothing else than a misleading promotion:

*FEATURED OFFER*
Cinematrix (US, UK)
Watch online

Credit Value:0.10 Credits
Cost:Free!
Credits:Instantly
us uk

If you take a look at the details from this offer then you see that you have to provide a credit card:

Cinematrix (US, UK)


Description: Watch movies on your computer!

Requirements: To receive credit, you must sign up for the trial with a valid credit card. Prepaid/gift cards are NOT allowed.

Note: You must be logged into your account to access/complete offers. You can log into your account from the log-in tab.

This is nothing else than a misleading promotion. An offer is only really free if you don't need to pay something. Trial offers with the deposit of a credit card are not really free because it can happen something to you and you are not able to cancel the offer in time. In this case is ZNZ not better then their affiliates. Here is it even worse because they require for completing the offer a postpaid credit card and they like to play man-in-the-middle during the time you are completing the offer. All the offers found at the website from ZNZ have similar requirements.

My opinion is that everybody is stupid who is using a postpaid credit card on the Internet and he should relocate into a madhouse if he is accepting a man-in-the-middle system during a sign-up process at a website where sensible data are getting transmitted.

The result of their own conditions can get seen at Web Of Trust too. If you take a look at the negative comments about ZNZ at Web Of Trust than you see that others see the risk of identity theft too:

WOT rating from zipnadazilch.com

An Alexa global ranking of 300,000 equals to around 100 - 150 visitors a day for all sites of the domain zipnadazilch.com. Normally you need 1,000 visitors for getting 1 new member.

Alexa ranking of zipnadazilch.com

If we take a look at a Rippoff Report, then we fin a user, which did not understand with whom he made a contract and that ZNZ has been only the promotion agency. What is more interesting is the answer he got and which seems to be from ZNZ (Author: Drew) - the relevant parts are:

To be QUALIFIED to receive money for introducing others to the program, you yourself must participate by getting your "credits." This constitutes taking trial offers yourself and keeping them the alloted amount of time. Which is 80% of the trial period. So let's say that you take a 7 day offer, 7 X .80 = 5.6 days, so you write down on your calendar to do with that offer what you will after 5.6 days but before 7 days, it is not rocket science. OF COURSE the offers encourage you to keep the offer past the end of the trial period, that is WHY they are offereing the trial in the first place.

If you do not cancel the trial before the end of the trial period, you will be charged, that is why it is called a trial period. So... If someone is angry that they were charged, it should not be with ZNZ, they CLEARLY tell you how long the trial period is, they are not trying to fool anyone.

The companies that advertise within ZNZ are seeking real customers, who want to keep their products, but the companies themselves are offering the "trial" so they can't force you to keep it, but understand this...

There is a much greater probablility that someone who actually has a product for a little bit of time, and actually experiences the benefit of the product will WANT to keep it. In reality, you could go out on the internet right now, independent of ZNZ and do one of these trial offers. Let's say a credit report offer of some kind and you could see your credit report pretty much immediately and then you could cancel the offer right away. That is what A LOT of people do, but with ZNZ and to participate with ZNZ, one MUST keep the offer 80% of the time. That is enough time to experience the benefit and make an educated decision as to whether to continue on and become an actual customer.

For the case that the above statement is really a statement from ZNZ then is the fraud starting here. These terms are not written in the FAQ and are not getting found in their Terms and Conditions. Additional is the above statement an instruction how to break the point II/4 of their Terms and Conditions - there is written:

II. OFFERS

  1. ZipNadaZilch does not guarantee that a user will receive credit for any offer. We reserve the right to refuse a user credit for an offer for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, lack of appropriate information or fraudulent information.

  2. A user may only receive credit for completing an offer once on any site. Do not complete an offer twice as this is considered fraud.

  3. Users are responsible for ensuring their browser settings have been set properly in order for the offer to be credited.

  4. A user should only complete an offer they are interested in. Completing an offer only to get your free gift is considered fraud.

  5. ZipNadaZilch is not responsible for delays in reporting offer completion or failure to receive credit.

  6. ZipNadaZilch is not responsible for any unknown or unexpected charges that you receive from one or more of our offers. Read the offers terms and conditions before signing up.

  7. Prepaid cards as well as gift cards are strictly forbidden to be used on any offer promoted at ZipNadaZilch – it is considered fraud to do so.

My opinion is the fraud already shown in the first point of these conditions: "ZipNadaZilch does not guarantee that a user will receive credit for any offer. We reserve the right to refuse a user credit for an offer for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, lack of appropriate information or fraudulent information."

Additional is the rule I/7 "Accounts may be suspended or closed at any time for any reason based on the discretion of the ZipNadaZilch Network." not conform with any Consumer Protection law, because one of the hidden reasons can be that the consumer is earning too much money.

It does not matter if the site from ZNZ is free of charge or not - even personal data having a value. If ZNZ cannot guarantee for something than their offer is nothing else than SCAM, because how they have declared by themselves they are able to reject crediting you for any newly invented reason without inform you before. It does not make any difference how long the company exists. Their own conditions are declaring them as fraudster. If they have conditions to reject crediting you than they have to list them all. We know that scammers are lazy and for this they are not listing the full conditions for making more income by themselves.

In any case are these Terms and Conditions against the Consumer Protection law of the European Union and UK. UK is a member of the European Union. As much as I have seen until now is the U.S. FTC about such rules not very happy too.

At the point II/7 is ZNZ declaring the usage of prepaid credit cards as a fraud. Maybe someone should inform the credit card companies about this statement and maybe they are taking the proper legal actions against ZNZ. In this case ZNZ would be very fast history.

The terms and conditions from ZNZ are in Europe not valid because of the consumer protection law. Their own laziness and business idea makes the Terms and conditions invalid because they like that the user is even responsible for everything and they are by themselves for nothing responsible. They are even too lazy to inform the users about changes in the Terms and conditions. This gets shown in the remaining Terms and Conditions:

RESPONSIBILITY
In no event will ZipNadaZilch, LLC. be liable for any incidental, consequential, or indirect damages (including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, business interruption, loss of programs or information, and the like) arising out of the use of or inability to use this service, or any information, or transactions provided on this service or downloaded from this service, even if ZipNadaZilch, LLC. or its authorized representatives have been advised of the possibility of such damages, or (b) any claim attributable to errors, omissions, or other inaccuracies in this service and/or information downloaded through this service.

INDEMNIFICATION
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless ZipNadaZilch, LLC., its employees, agents, licensors, suppliers and any third party information providers to this Website from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any violation of this Agreement or any activity related to your Internet access account (including negligent or wrongful conduct) by you or any other person accessing this Website using your Internet access account.

TERMINATION OF USE
If at any time you wish to not participate on this site, simply discontinue use of your account.

TERMS & CONDITIONS MODIFICATIONS
ZipNadaZilch reserves the right to change its Terms & Conditions at any time. We also reserve the right to change point values of rewards or offers at any time for any reason. Use of the site after such modifications acknowledges and binds a user to the updated agreement.

Changes in the Terms and Conditions have to get announced at least one month before they are getting valid according the consumer protection law in Europe. Hidden changes are making the complete Terms and Conditions invalid!

Not one consumer can get prosecuted if his account is getting hacked by criminals. In such a case the company can get prosecuted for not taking care of their own security and the data of their members. That ZNZ does not delete accounts on request gets shown at "TERMINATION OF USE". Their own behavior is in this case very negligently.

They are oftering in UK their service and even don't know the consumer rights from UK and the European Union. The law cannot get excluded by defining Terms and Conditions. As there are so many rules against the law including the product liability are getting all rules of their terms and conditions replaced by the standard law system. This is the result of their laziness.

For all the above reasons and to protect themselves from their "happy" customers they need to hide their identity even at the domain registration:

Fraud & Scam

Only Affiliate Marketing SCAM offers getting found at the social networks

by Rudolf Faix 4. July 2015 06:24

Pyramid systemAffiliate marketers are you really so stupid and think that you can sell money?

Do you not know that everybody knows that you cannot take out more from a pot than it is inside?

As long as you are not offering a product, which should get sold from the affiliates and the affiliates are getting their commission, is your system only an illegal pyramid system or Ponzi scheme!!! Participating and promoting in such a system can bring you only into jail.

A pyramid system is an unsustainable business model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public.

Various forms of pyramid systems are illegal in many countries including the United States and numerous European countries.

As Europe enforced the law that promises in the promotion are enforceable in front of law court, the illegal sales systems disappeared very fast. Only some legal systems like Tupperware, Jeunesse, Amway and a few others are remaining. Some of this companies even needed to change their sales and promotion structure to be conform with the local law. The story about Amway at WikiPedia shows how the law has changed the world of affiliate marketing. You should think about it before you promote such a system - especially if you are not able to pay fines of a few million dollars!

Why you are trying to sell money? Do you really hope that you can find some people, which are more stupid then you are by yourself?

In such pyramid or Ponzi schemes only the people on top are earning. The people at the bottom of the pyramid are only losing their money. It does not matter if you need "only" to pay a small sign-up and/or membership fee. In any case you can use this money in a better way or are you already so poor that you like to get a place to sleep and food for free of charge by going to jail?

Fraud & Scam

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

by Rudolf Faix 30. June 2015 06:35

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.

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:

Texas attorney general says judges can deny same-sex marriage licenses
USA TODAY
Shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage across the country Friday, politicians from both sides of the aisle began weighing in on the decision. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a statement Sunday saying state workers can ...

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:
