Scammer: trafficmonsoon.com - a site with a hidden domain ownership

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 trafficmonsoon.com 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 trafficmonsoon.com:

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;
