Scammer: with hidden domain ownership

by Rudolf Faix 5. July 2015 05:12

USA EarningIt is recommended to use an advertisement blocker like Adguard or Adblock plus if you are searching for possibilities for monetizing your website. In such a case you can identify the scammer easily. In this case AdGuard has shown me that the domain is using the advertisements from Why shall you pay some membership fees (for the upgrade) if you can get the service directly from for free? is not able to give you more security than you get from directly. At least does not hide their domain ownership and you have an address where you can bring them if the situation arises in front of law court cheaper and easily. They even hide their domain ownership. Such services are not trustful. The only like to get your hard earned money without doing something for you. For this is the site nothing else then scam. from Israel is well known for terminating the accounts fast without giving a reason for it. You need only to follow the comments on Web Of Trust. Maybe this is the reason that is hiding their identity by using the proxy service WHOISGUARD Inc. from Panama, but it can be some other reason too. In any case if they are taking money for membership fees then they will be liable in front of the law court in any case. But there is no reason to pay such a suspicious service in this case.

The view of the membership area of by using AdGuard: member area

By looking into the source code of the site we find:

<!-- Begin BidVertiser code -->
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.1" SRC="" type="text/javascript"></SCRIPT>
<!-- End BidVertiser code -->

Fraud & Scam

Affiliates Marketing Scammer

by Rudolf Faix 29. June 2015 11:54

MoneyAffiliate Marketers are you really so stupid and believe that someone, which finds a system where he can generate unlimited income streams, will share it with you over the social networks? 

If one will doing this then he is nothing else then a stupid egghead! 

If you get such offers, then this one which has made the offer, needs you, your money, your workforce or both for getting an income by himself. What will happen with you is for him not important as long as you are able to generate income for him. Sorry, but this is the bitter truth.

There is no "holy grail" for making money available. If such a holy grail gets found you can be sure that the government will do everything what is possible to stop this opportunity. Otherwise the world economics would break down and the money will lose its value.

So why are you so stupid in believe in such systems?
The provided proofs are nothing else than fakes. Yesterday I have found such a fake which could get easily proofed. The first payout has been before the domain got registered. You can find the article here. Why the other proofs should not be faked? Everybody can create an evidence which is looking good and real by using a computer. You are not able to inspect or check it back.

Are the hawker videos impressing you?
Videos are making only this people, which did not learn to write and to read. Such time-waster videos are made from hawker and they try to convince you with a lot psychological tricks mixed up with meaningless words to be a part of their system. They only like to get your money and/or your workforce. The best system for them will be that you pay, invest and work for them! Take a look at the most sites. There are nothing else then a caption, a video and a field where you have to drop your email address if you like to get redirected to next information. Videos cannot get indexed by the search engines. Only written words are getting indexed.

Why are the owner of these video-sites waiving the traffic from the search engines?
These scammer need to make fast business and disappear immediately before they can get captured by the police. For this they are not interested into the traffic from search engines. The expected life time of such a site is only a few weeks or months. That is too short to get a good search engine ranking. Most of the sites are using a privacy protection services. The inland revenue service is very interested in such a business too.

Is the promised income impressing you?
Sorry, but between promotion and reality is mostly a big gap! The promoted fantasy income are maybe the people on top earning but not the freshly recruited ones. To get such an income will be nearly impossible for you.

Why do you need to pay a sign-up and/or membership fee?
The company is saving already a lot from their own marketing costs. You'll know already which company you should avoid if they like to get a sign-up or membership fee. In such a case are their products nothing else then non-seller and they are not able to finance themselves or not able to keep their own system up and running without the fee. Serious companies will provide you even help by promoting their services or products without charging you something.

Don't forget: You are the one which works for the company and you shall get paid. Not opposite round! You are making the marketing and the sales. Without you the company will even not be able to sell something. The most of the affiliate marketing products are not able to get sold inside a store. There would be too much competition.

Affiliates & MLM Marketing - Titus Sharpe - outside of the UK useless

by Rudolf Faix 28. June 2015 10:34 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, 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, then we see that the most traffic is coming to the site from India:

Alexa ranking of

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

Spamming Blog comments and Forums

by Rudolf Faix 21. June 2015 11:49

No SpamSpammers have tried to post their stupid content 143 times since June 8, 2015 as comments to my articles at the Affiliates Marketing Reviews blog. More than 70% from this postings got automatically deleted.

Spamming blog comments and forums does not help you in SEO or brings you more visitors to your page. All the CMS (Content Management Systems) are adding by default the attribute 'nofollow' to the links entered in the comments area. This is telling to the search engine crawlers that they should not follow the link. It can even happen that you get exact the opposite result then you like if your links got collected to many times with a 'nofollow' attribute and the search engine interprets them as spam. In such a case your ranking will get lower instead of higher.

By following the links from the spammer I have seen a lot of suspicious sites, which are it even not worth to write a negative review about them because they are a big secret in the world wide web. With an Alexa global ranking of 3 million and above would be even a negative review a promotion for the site which is bringing more visitors in one week than they have during one year.

The most of this spammer are only looking how to get as much money as possible during a short time. For this they are trying to sell some useless products. This spammer are so stupid that they even don't know it, that as higher the promised earnings per sale is as more difficult is it to sell the product. They are still dreaming from "getting rich quick".

The scammer would have more success if they would invest the time for writing SEO or quality content for their site instead of searching for forums and blogs where they could drop their content.

In any case they should make first a product background check if the offered product itself is not already a scam. It is hard to sell something if the sales page gets already blocked from a Virus security system like 360 Total Security, Adguard/Adblock plus, Web Of Trust or some other browser filter. This makes the sales page not really trustful and keeps potential customers away. The ad blockers are already coming to a problem for the advertisers. A lot of people are already using such ad blocker.

There are enough good solutions for promoting a good product. If a product is already listed as useless in forums or blogs, then you need not promote it. In such a case it would be better to search for a better product and which you are able to handle. If you know nothing about the product, then you would not be able to promote and sell it. You need not try to sell dubious male enhancer, anti aging products, body building helpers, etc. if you are not able to present the product. Making a single webpage is not enough to attract visitors or get a good position at the search engines.

Affiliates & MLM Marketing

Scammer: - a site with a hidden domain ownership

by Rudolf Faix 18. June 2015 12:47

TrafficMonsoonNot only the business model from Trafficmonsoon is suspect. Their behavior seems to be very strange too, Yesterday I have made a free sign-up at Trafficmonsoon and got a two confirmation emails.

Yesterday I have taken a look around in the membership area and viewed a few advertisements - more then 10. As the membership site from Trafficmonsoon is not very user friendly and I needed to leave for an appointment, I decided to continue today. At the login process today I got the message "There is no rfaix in our database.".

If you are thinking logical then you'll get it that is only a time-wasting and/or money-wasting system. 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 TrafficMonsoon. 

Even Scamadviser reports about

Low Trust Rating. This Site May Not Be Safe to Use.
Site is United States based, But The Real Location Is Being Hidden
Alert Result: The owner of the website is using a service to hide their identity
Alert Result: This website is 288 Days old

If we take a look at their business model, then we see that this system will not last long. On one side they like to sell traffic to advertisers and on the other side they give a little bit traffic in exchange to users for viewing the advertisements from their advertisers. The user does this only for getting something in exchange and not because he is interested watching advertisements. As soon the advertiser will know this system they will avoid it.

For the advertisers is such a system not making any sense. Advertisements should get viewed if a user is interested in the product and not for getting something in exchange. The click rate for such advertisements is nearly zero. Even if the user need to click on the advertisement the advertising will not make any profit for the advertiser. Alone for this fact is the business model from Trafficmonsoon already nothing else then scam. It is only adjusted to make money for the owner of Trafficmonsoon and give nothing in exchange to the advertising companies.

If we take a look at the user ratings in WOT (Web Of Trust) about Trafficmonsoon then we can see the source from Trafficmonsoon. From 28 user ratings are 27 in Russian language. This shows too which kind of advertising you'll get from them

The one user rating, which is in English written, is negative too;
