The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Earlier this year we wrote and warned you about the ConsumerWarningsReport360.com scam, which is run, among other places, on Craigslist. This is a “make money fast” type scam, and they lure victims in with fake Craigslist ‘for sale’ postings, then tell you the item is already sold, and they feel so badly, they are going to share this great “make money” scheme with you. Since we exposed the scam, someone has caused people to post comments to the article extolling the virtues of ConsumerWarningsReport360.com – clearly these people are paid, and it is part of the scam.

Why do we say that? After all, isn’t it possible that real people have made money with the scheme, and are posting to let others know?


In a word, no. For one thing, we have found identical rebuttals, word for word, on other sites, all trying to make the scam look legitimate.

Ok, you say, but maybe it’s a really zealous person who just wants to spread the word, and so who copied and pasted their own words, but maybe they really mean it?

Nope.

Because here is the other thing – what these trolls don’t know is that we get much more information behind the scenes when someone posts a comment than what the readers see. And nearly all of the comments posted to our article come from the same provider – and a non-U.S. provider to boot, namely cablevision.net.mx.

There really is only one reason that several people, all from outside the United States, would be rushing to the defense of a known U.S.-based scam: because they were paid to post those comments.

Here are the comments, you can judge for yourself – remember, these are comments aimed at rehabilitating the image of a proven scam – all posted from the same provider and, also, all posted over the span of 72 hours:

 

WARNING: REMEMBER THESE ARE ALL SCAM COMMENTS POSTED TO MAKE YOU BELIEVE THAT THE SCAM IS REAL. DO NOT FALL FOR IT!

I shouldn’t have bought the program in the first place because I wasn’t in the financial position to waste money on something that could have turned out to be a scam. None the less I made an INVESTMENT and thankfully it’s paid off. I can only say to those of you who are struggling with the program right now to please not give up. I had a hard time in the beginning too, mostly because there was a lot of information to take in but I stuck with it because I had already paid for the program. I saw it through and I’m bringing in $500 a month. Not at all what they said I would be getting paid but at least I’ve made back what I paid and then some. (Posted from 201.141.235.243)


I’m pretty surprised to see all this negative feedback! I was skeptical at first, but if you’re not willing to risk it how are you going to make it? I signed up and the truth is I’m definitely not making as much money as they claimed I would but I’ve earned $500 so far. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. There are so many bad representations of the program out there. I can only say it’s been working for me. (Posted from 201.141.238.115)


It’s not always too good to be true people. How jaded are we? I signed up and was instantly annoyed buy how tedious the program was but since I had already paid I just followed through, which it sounds like all the people complaining didn’t bother to do. Quiting isn’t my style. I guess you could say I was also annoyed by the fact I’m not making as much money as they claimed but I’m going to keep practicing what I’ve been learning. I’ve already made back my initial investment, so its all uphill from here! (Posted from 201.141.220.115)

  1. I got a new scam email today. The headers say from Elinor.SingletonBF@cablevision.net.mx
    It’s one of those “We have $$$$ for you scams that asks you to open an attachment:

    “Dear customer,
    Attached pls find a wire transfer confirmation for the invoice dated 05/27/2016
    The payment should arrive shortly. If you have any queries do not hesitate to contact us.
    Kind regards,
    Elinor Singleton
    FIDELITY EUROPEAN VALUES
    tel: 009-514-4311”

    You open the attachment at your own considerable risk.

    And why would a Mexican operation use an English language name like Fidelity European Values????
