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:

Survey site: MarketAgent.com - legal but in truth a waste of time to promote their services

by Rudolf Faix 4. August 2015 06:52

MarketagentMarketAgent is an official company with the location in Austria, Germany, Slovenia and Switzerland. That alone does not make them trustful. It shows only in which market they are active and which law they have to respect and where they are responsible in front of the law court.

If you are taking a look at their locations then you'll see that the English speaking market is not really their market. Austria, Germany and their location in Switzerland is German speaking. So it does not really make any sense to promote their services if you read their conditions at their website:

Registration as a survey participant: 150 Points

In principle, the invitation to participate in surveys is done by random selection. Which means, that our system uses randomly our address pool and selects the number of participants automatically - this is methodologically necessary. Often, participants must also meet certain characteristics (e.g.: male and living in Berlin or Vienna). Because of this, there can be greater distances between the surveys from time to time and then it can go back quite quickly.

Friend invited by the survey participant : 100 Points
You will receive the points for recommending new member only, when the referred person has completed his/her first survey.

Updating your personal information (1x per year): 50 Points
Please note that the points for updating your personal information will only be credited, if we have asked you to do so via email.

Participation in the online survey: 20 - 250 points

Conversion: 1.2 dollar = 120 cents = 100 bonus points

Bonus points will be awarded to your account immediately after completing each survey. Anytime you can convert Exchange Area the survey points into cash or rather products or services of our cooperation partners. Each time after you collect 200 number of points you can exchange them.

Bank transfer, Paypal, Skrill

From the above statements is ony "Conversion: 1.2 dollar = 120 cents = 100 bonus points" against the European Consumer law, because the U.S. members are getting a better conversation as the European members - actually is € 1.00 ~ US$ 1.09829.

In any case are their conditions only for their own benefit. If you invite someone to their system, then you'll get only paid if he is usefull for them. As you don't know it in front which kind of people they are searching is it nothing else than mass collection of data.

The result of this system can get seen in the comments from Web Of Trust. There has written Rayven_redeye on 04/21/2011 (translated to English):

A little extra income, as I said, you can do so about 30 € per year, to be made depending on the amount of surveys.
You get the surveys sent by mail, if you do not want to participate in the survey, the mail can get ignored because there is no "minimum" that must be met. The transfer works without problems, however, can take up to 3 weeks.

The user azereus has written on 03/28/2011 at WOT (translated to English):

you get around 1x survey per month sent. if make the survey until the end you get up to 2.5 €. adds up to € 30 / year. the money can be transferred on their own account.
Yes it works !!

The user ZLazarow has commented on 04/16/2012 at WOT:

I have completed few surveys and get 600 points(6€), at ask to payout to my paypal acount, onthe web page shows transfer succesful, but money I never get to my Paypal account, I wrote many times to marketagent.com, but not answered to any my mail sent...

I thik this is SCAM

Summary: If we take a look at the above comments then we see that they have not enough surveys that their members can get a higher income. I received never an invitation for a survey from them. It did not make any difference if I have been living in Vienna or at country side near to Vienna and I have been every time a typical consumer (living in a family with kids).

The European consumer data protection law keeps you save that your data are not getting traded.

Only people, which are not able to read and think, will promote marketagent.com at the English speaking part of the world. In any case such people are only wasting their time because they have even not enough surveys for their German speaking members and the referrer gets only paid if the refferal participates on his first survey.

This case shows even that all these other survey sites, which are offering you a high monthly income are only SCAM and they willnot pay you. The worst ones are these, which are asking for a membership fee from you.

Affiliates & MLM Marketing | 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

WOT - Web Of Trust - a good tool, but you need to use your own brain

by Rudolf Faix 26. July 2015 07:41

WOT - Web Of TrustWOT - Web Of Trust is nothing else than a free browser add-on which combines different warning sources like Malwarebytes, PhishTank, etc. with a community of users which are sharing their experience with websites, online stores, scams, untrustworthy links, etc. With other words it is rating system for websites which cannot get easily influenced or cheated.

Everybody, which likes to find some good sites for business - especially in the MLM and affiliate marketing sector, should use this browser add-on in combination with the other tools I described already at "Tools helping in evaluating the promotion and reality of affiliate networks".

WOT shows a colored traffic light next to website links to tell you which sites people trust for safe searching, surfing and shopping online: green for good, red for bad, and yellow as a warning to be cautious. The icons are shown in popular search engine results, social media, online email, shortened URL’s, and lots of other sites.

An example is shown at the following screenshot:

Sample browsing with WOT - Web of Trust

If you are accidentally opening a site which has a bad reputation you get immediately a warning like shown at the following screenshot:

Site with a bad reputation

From the toolbar you are able to take a look at the rating of a site:

WOT - Web of Trust - Ratings with comments

Following the link "View details and comments", which opens in a new browser-tab, gives you some background information about the reason for the ranking. Not all user are commenting their voting. You should read in any case the positive and negative comments and make your own decision.

Don't forget: Such tools can only help you in making your decision - they cannot hindrance you making a wrong decision.

At least can save this tool a lot of your time, which you spend normally by watching the time-waster videos of the illiterates. You'll get more information about the system and/or offered products from the comments than from the time-waster videos.

Scammer: virtualassistantscash.com - Tibet Emran - CDN MEDIA LTD

by Rudolf Faix 16. July 2015 10:47

iWork Virtual AssistantCDN Media LTD. - Tibet Emran tries to sell work by using a "Get Rich Quick"-scheme at the domain virtualassistantcash.com. The only one which gets rich in this case would be CDN Media LTD.

During promoting all the about the possible earning amounts ("Make as much as much as $100 - $320 a day", "It is reasonable to make $100 an hour", etc.) they have completely forgotten to describe or to show which kind of work they are offering. Normally as more difficult, dangerous, unwanted a work is as higher is the payment. The same is opposite round valid too.

Additional they have forgotten that they have written at their page "No hidden fees or hidden costs". If you click at the "Click here to Register Online"-button then the site secure-ssl-payout.com opens and likes to bill you with "Special Discount Today Only: $12". Nowhere is written for what you have to pay it and what you get for it. Such a behavior is in many countries illegal.

At the website of virtualassistantscash.com we see on top a button "24/7 SUPPORT":

iWork Virtual Assistant

If we push this button we find the following contact addresses and possibilities:

Contact us page without any information how

That is not really that what I'm understanding about a 24/7 support. If you have problems you have to send them a snail mail. Maybe the get so many letters from their "happy customers" that need to work 24/7 for answering them and have written for this reason 24/7 support at their homepage. Maybe they like to reduce the gratulations from their happy customers because not everybody will search their address from the domain registration data. As Gibraltar is a well-known tax paradise and there are more companies than people living can it be, that the company is only a post box and the mails get forwarded to the real destination.

Such a stupid construction and unbelievable promotion destroys the reputation of the best company. We can see it at Web of Trust:

WOT rating of virtualassistantscash.com

The Alexa global ranking shows a not really impressing result. Mostly people from India are believing there is a way available to get rich fast. If we compare the Alexa global ranking data of the domain virtualassistantscash.com with the ranking data of the payment processor then we see that not a lot of people are so stupid and signing-up. Here the ranking data from virtualassistantscash.com:
