Scam: mycashemails.com - epsprosperityhotline.com

by Rudolf Faix 13. July 2015 07:38

EPS ProsperityHotlineAn actual offer in the social networks has coming into my focus. The offer is "Make $25.00 For Every Email You Process And Get Paid INSTANTLY!". The offer has all signs of a scam from the kind "get rich fast".

A search for product, which shall get sold by this system, is completely missing. You get $25 for each member you recruit. The new members have nothing else to do then to you. The only way in which this offer differs from a standard pyramid scheme is that there is an extremely short “downline” (just you) and that the site owners are not part of the downline. The site owners are only earning $10 if one of the members order a site. Any way is it nothing than a pyramid system from which the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and The FBI Federal Bureau of Investigation is warning. In some countries is such a system even illegal because nothing gets traded.

A look at the domain registration of the promoted website, which should be a "Proven System since 2010", shows that the creation date is Feburary 5, 2014. For this it can be only an affiliate.

A view into the sourcecode of the website shows us the source from where the content is coming:

We see in the above code that the site is only a frame and loads in reality the data from epsprosperityhotline.com for the refferal joseph82.

Scamadviser says about epsprosperityhotline.com:

Warning: Low Trust Rating. This Site May Not Be Safe to Use.
Good Result: This website is deemed to be popular by Alexa with a ranking of 250692

Scamadviser only oversees that the domain ownership is hidden by a proxy service. Even the Alexa ranking of 250692 is not really a good sign especially if I compare it with my own site here, which has at the moment an Alexa ranking of 293180 (you can view the actual Alexa ranking of blog.wwpa.com by scrolling down to the end of the links on the right site).

The domain registration data of epsprosperityhotline.com show us that the domain got created January 28, 2013, so it cannot be a proven system since 2010.

If I try to visit the site directly, I'll get immediately a warning from Adguard:

Adguard has blocked access to this page
This web page at epsprosperityhotline.com, 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.

As I know what I'm doing, I proceed and get the information that I have reached the site without a referral ID. If we add the referral id to the link, then we get like expected the same content. A view into the source code shows us, that we have reached really the parent site, which is even running in a frame by itself., because inside this frame are no other frame sets.

It is nice that epsprospertyhotline.com makes by themselves in their headline the connection to clickbank.net, which is already known from the different pyramid systems like paidsocialmediajobs.com, getcashforsurveys.com, click4surveys com, surveyspaid.com, etc. which are promoting the same get rich quick scheme.

At ScamAdviser we find about clickbank.net the complaints of two users and the following information:

Low Trust Rating. This Site May Not Be Safe to Use.
Alert Result: This website/business has been given a low reliability rating by other websites
Alert Result: This website has been reported as being untrustworthy

Fraud & Scam

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.

Pic from the BrainBoosterGuide Product

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

Alexa ranking of brainboosterguide.com

 

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

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

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

Brad Gaines & Todd Gross - calling themselves Marketing Experts - ultimate-lead-system.com - instantprofits.website

by Rudolf Faix 20. June 2015 08:45

Facebook Marketing ManiaToday I have found a typical advertisement, which shows how you get lied and deceived if you believe to promotion. The advertisement offered the free eBook "Facebook Marketing Mania - Become The Next Marketing Media Mogul By Mastering Facebook Marketing". As it has been a give away, I have ordered it by using my email account from Google. A short time later I found the download link in the spam folder. It seems that Google knows the sender already very good :).

The eBook tries to explain on 24 pages (including cover picture, content directory,copyright notice) what is Facebook and how to turn your Facebook friends into leads by making a Facebook company page. With other words you'll find in the eBook nothing new or at least one idea, which you did not know by yourself already.

More interesting is the site from which you are downloading the eBook - http://bradgainesmarketing.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Facebook-Marketing-Mania.pdf. Marketing experts should have a site, which is very well visited and have a good traffic ranking. One of the oldest independent traffic ranker is Alexa. I know from my different sites, that an Alexa global ranking of 200,000 equals to around 300 unique visitors a day and an Alexa global ranking of 1,200,000 is equal to around 15 unique visitors a month. If we compare this values with the global ranking of bradgainesmarketing.com, a 2 year old site, then we see, that this website is a big secret in the World Wide Web:

Alexa ranking of BradGainesMarketing.com

If we take a look at the domain registry data from the landing page bradgainesmarketing,com, then we see that the site is using a privacy protection service from Panama. This is something additional, which makes the domain more suspect then trustful. Together with the Alexa ranking we can see that they have no idea from marketing.

As bradgainesmarketing.com is only a landing page. The page leads to the two months old domain ultimate-lead-system.com. This domain is registered for our surprise to Brad Gaines. Maybe Brad Gaines from Brad Gaines Marketing has learned already in the two years that hiding his identity is not good for his business. Anyway let us take first a look at the global Alexa ranking from the ultimate-lead-system.com:

Alexa ranking of ultimate-lead-system.com

As the Alexa global ranking is a ranking over the last three months and the domain ultimate-lead-system.com is only two month old, the ranking can improve a little bit every day until the website is older then three month or the marketing and the promotion for the domain gets more professional.

The second website, which leads to ultimate-lead-system.com is instantprofits.website. There you'll find the same time waster video. This domain got created on January 17, 2015. At this time Brad Gaines did not know that a business will not be trustful by using a service for hiding the domain ownership. We see at the global Alexa ranking that the instantprofits.website domain is the biggest secret in the world wide web:

Summary: Which marketing tips can you expect from a "marketing company", which is not able to generate traffic and visitors for their own site? Why should you store and generate your leads on a system where the lead has to pay for it? If you are collecting your leads by yourself or using a free service, then you get more leads and more sales. The system does not really help you at the lead generation job. Pop-up blocker and script blocker (cross site scripting) will make more problems with the offered system then it can help you by managing your leads. The global rankings of the promoting sites are showing you already that the site owner does not understand anything from marketing. Which marketing tips can you get from such a site? If you invest the US$ 7 by inviting a friend to a beer, then you have more from your money.
