Is this likely to be a scam?

13 replies
Hello All,

I am uncertain whether or not to accept an ad from a "online order entries work at home job" site onto my ad exchange, having heard that many of these are scams.

However this site quotes "scamfreezone.org" as a tesimony of its honesty, but the problem is that I've never heard of this either.

Can anyone here advise?

Many thanks.

    Those things are almost always scams, but if you'd like to PM me the ad, I could probably tell you for sure.

    Its probably safe...
    You should also send me your bank account details so that I can free my rich prince cousin from Nigeria and then reward you with millions.

    I'd steer away from it, if it looks scammy to you it probably looks scammy to others.

    Keep it looking genuine

    Those were really prevalent on Craigslist and a lot of them are some sort of money order scam. I'd stay away from it.

    David,

    It's your site - you set its tone - so go with your gut feeling :-)

    If I'm not mistaken Scam Free Zone is a LONG time established site from Neil Shearing. Think he's been running that one for a good 10 years or more.

    Whether he actually "approved" the product or not is a different story. Tons of scams like to quote how "Oprah" or other big names said such and such great things about them so there's no telling.

      I had the same thoughts, but then I re-read the original post and discovered that he said scamfreezone.org and I thought Neil Shearing's site was .com. So I just visited the .org site and that one is not Neil's site. Neil's is, in fact, .com.

      I don't know who the .org site belongs to, so I'd be wary until you can find out more information.

        Thank, Denise. That's extremely helpful. I was wary from the beginning (as my query on this forum indicates) and I did some checking of IP addresses to see whether the site and the alleged validator were from the same place, but that led nowhere - at which pointy I asked here.

          If you'd like to PM me with the ad/site in question, I'd be happy to take a look and see if I can give you any more insight.

    if it looks like a duck, waddles like a duck and quacks like a duck, it just might possibly be a duck!

    Cheers

      HaHa Kim... I was thinking the same thing, but I wasn't thinking of your nice way of putting it... I would replace the ducks with sh**... looks like, smells like...

    100% scam. I buy products time to time, but ALWAYS research first.
    google the business name + scam and see what pops up. works with anything but beware affiliates who use that phrase to their "product review" page.
