OGuitarVip.info Review: Fake Fender Scam! Don’t Be Deceived!

Recently, when reading through the many website requests we get through our contact form, we were asked about OGuitarVip.Info. Were they a scam, or were they an authentic brand to order from?
The short answer was that yes, they were indeed found to be a scam, and our review below will help show you why. They sadly appear to have been doing these types of scams for a month now, and it is our hope that this review of OGuitarVip.Info will help others from ordering through this site!

What Is OGuitarVip.Info Selling?

OGuitarVip.infoAs their domain name suggests, OGuitarVip is selling guitars. And a lot of them. Not being guitar people, we couldn’t really tell you what exact type of guitars they were. But we can tell you that they do appear to be sold at a discount.

Discounted Prices?

So, here’s the thing. We’ve seen a lot of discounts, and a lot of products with low prices before. It’s on many of the numerous sites that we’ve reviewed. Oh, and by the way, the majority of them were scams.

Low prices and discounts aren’t bad. It’s only when they show up on a site (that is usually on the newer side), and when they are really heavily discounted. Most of the guitars on this site seem to be only discounted 10%-20%.
And when we read their About Us page, we find why they are discounted at that price. You see, this site was probably something similar to a dropshipping site. Basically, you find a whole seller who is willing to ship it somewhere, and then sell products at a wholesale price.
OGuitarVip.info's Sale ModelAs you can see from OGuitarVip.info’s Sale model, they claim to be cutting out the dealer and brand, and thus shipping straight to the consumer. So they seem to be sounding legit, right?

Well, yes and no. We would like to applaud OGuitarVip.Info trying to make themselves legit as possible – it’s actually a lot farther than most scammers go. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to make us believe they are actually who they claim they are.

Just Who Are OGuitarVip.Info Claiming To Be?

You see, when you come to a website, you have to trust nothing, and double check everything. And that’s just what we did. If you scroll all the way down their site, at the bottom, in their website’s footer, they claim that Fender is the copyright of the site.

Website's FooterIs this site called Fender? (The answer is no.) If the answer is no, then who exactly is Fender, and why are they claiming to be the owner of this site?

This is sadly a typical ploy by scammers to make you believe they are a legit company. If you were to look up Fender, you would find that they are a company that sells Guitars (go figure.) But, if you go to their website, it would take you to fender.com, and not to this site. This site isn’t related to Fender in any way.

Not only that, but OGuitarVip.Info is also using copyright material from Fender. The logo on their site, and other images are all images that are owned by Fender. To do business under them would mean that OGuitarVip.Info is running an illegal operation (which they are doing, by the way).

But that isn’t all that they are doing.

PayPal Or No PayPal?

If you look up at the last image above, you’ll see that in their footer they have the PayPal symbol. That means that they accept PayPal as a method for paying for your purchase.
But, when you go to the actual payment page, you can only pay with MasterCard!

No PayPal, and no SSLNot only that, but as you can see from the above image, the actual payment page doesn’t even have SSL on it! We highly doubt the Credit Card form is secure either.

What does this exactly mean?

Let’s pretend that you are going to make this purchase on a public network, like at a fast food joint,or a library. If you did, all your Credit Card info would go to OGuitarVip.Info unencrypted, meaning that anyone else on the network could see what you just sent.

Yes, someone else could read what your Credit Card number was, as well as the expiration date and CVV. This is definitely not a site that you want to enter your credit card information on.

We also suspect that the owners of OGuitarVip.Info could see your Credit Card info, but we can’t be completely sure. But in any case, with the lack of SSL, this payment page is definitely not one you want to use.

The Owners Of OGuitarVip.Info

If we go back to the footer, we would find how to contact them – if we needed customer support, or something like that. And how they tell us to contact them is through an email address:

Customer Service Email AddressThe email address in the above image is the same as the one found in OGuitarVip.Info’s footer. And it appears to be found to be connected with other fraudulent websites.

If you do a search for the email, you’ll find that several people have talked about them before. Below is an image of two of their sites that they have been linked to. Both of them are fraudulent.

Email linked to other fraudulent websitesSo all in all, the owners don’t appear to be looking very legit. They seem to have been doing this for the past month, and clearly aren’t going to stop.

They, and their site, are definitely people you don’t want to take part of. We would highly recommend that you steer clear from them.

OGuitarVip.Info Is A Scam!

Well, now you know from our review of OGuitarVip.Info that this site is definitely a scam. No need to beat around the bush on calling this site out. They are a fraudulent company, and one that no one should be doing business with.
They have been linked to other fraudulent websites, as well as having no SSL on their payment page. They also are trying to impersonate Fender and pretend that they take PayPal payments. Overall, they are your typical run-of-the-mill scammers. Best to steer clear and avoid them.

Thanks To Liam for asking about this site and showing it to us!

TheViralBest.com review: Is The Viral Best A Scam?

TheViralBest.com review: Is The Viral Best A Scam?

You’re searching for whether TheViralBest.com is a scam or not, right? You’re trying to find some sort of review to see if they are authentic, legit, and worth buying from. Or maybe you’re just here ’cause you like reading everything that we write!

Whatever the case, we are here to alleviate your concerns. More than likely, TheViralBest.com is indeed a scam, and in this review, we hope to help show you why we think that. By the end of this article, our hope is that you will be not only smarter, but also a little richer because of it.

What Is The Viral Best?

TheViralBest.com's Main PageTheViralBest seems to be a large collection of random things that you can purchase. And as is typical with the sites we look at, TheViralBest.com seems to have most, if not all of their products at a discounted price.

Nothing is wrong with discounts. But nearly every scam website that is selling something will put on a discount. Low prices entice people to a website.

Now, we can’t call TheViralBest.com a scam just because of their low prices. But it is something that does need to be taken into consideration as we look at the authenticity of their site.

Various products discountedAs you can see from the above screenshot, they have all manner of discounts and products. Who knew that a floating pet fur catcher was such a thing? Or that a Reusable Toast Bag could be discounted $15 dollars (and still cost over $10 bucks)?

Whether it’s this site or another that claims to have low prices, you always need to ask why those discounts are there. There has to be a reason. And if there is no reason on the site, then it is more than likely a scam.

We’re sorry to say, but it’s just a scammer’s trait to use discounts and never explain why they have them. Don’t get us wrong. We don’t think there is anything wrong with a site that has discounts. What we do think is wrong is a site that has discounts, but never goes into detail explaining why those discounts are around.

TheViralBest.com never gives us a reason why the discounts are on their site. They don’t even have an ‘About Us’ page, an important page to help connect with their readers.
So, already, from the first look, they appear to be highly scamm-ish.

Social Media Accounts?

Something to always take a look at is a company’s social media accounts, assuming they have them. TheViralBest.com’s site only links to one – Facebook – and that doesn’t appear to actually be linked to them.

Grab Us Home's Facebook PageAs you can see from the above screenshot, the Facebook link goes to a page for a company called Grab Us Home. We’re not exactly sure what ‘Grab Us Home’ is supposed to mean, but it definitely doesn’t appear to be connected with TheViralBest.com in any way.

Either The Viral Best slipped up and linked the wrong Facebook page to their site, or something else is going on. In either case, it really doesn’t help TheViralBest.com’s chances of getting back on our legitimacy scale.

If someone is going to link to a social media platform, shouldn’t they at least link to something that is in someway connected to them? As we’ll see shortly, they are actually connected in someway, but the point we are trying to make is that we had to dig around for a long while before we found the connection.

So why not, if they want to link to it, point out that connection, so that people aren’t surprised when they go to a completely different company page on Facebook?

Who Is The Owner Of TheViralBest.com?

We decided to pretend to order something, to see if we could find anything else revealed. When we arrived to PayPal, we found that TheViralBest.com seemed to be doing business as a company called Storm Media Limited.

Storm Media LimitedNow, if you do some searching about Grab Us Home, you will also find that Storm Media Limited is connected with them as well. So it appears that Storm Media Limited is running several websites on the internet, and has been doing it for a while now.

Looking up Storm Media Limited on the internet reveals that many people don’t actually like them. So much so, that they have an ‘F’ rating on BBB as well as numerous complaints against them.

Search Results For Storm Media LimitedPage after page on search results shows that Storm Media Limited and its subsequent websites seem to be not well-liked within the internet community.
When you go to the BBB, you’ll find that they are currently investigating Storm Media Limited on several things:

As you can see in the screenshot, even the website Grab Us Home is part of the many websites that Storm Media Limited operates.

But it sadly doesn’t stop there. The BBB also has on record over 300 complaints against Storm Media Limited, which is a lot more than most sites have (or should have, for that matter).

BBB Complaints Against Media Storm LimitedWe could go on and on, website after website, each detailing some fraudulent aspect of Media Storm Limited. But we think that we’ve made our point. The Viral Best, and those that it’s connected to, aren’t companies that seem to be very authentic.

Is TheViralBest.com A Scam?

So, that our review of TheViralBest.com, and who it’s related to. Now it’s up for you to decide on whether you think that they are a scam or not.

In our opinion, they are a scam, due to who they are connected with, and the many reviews that we read. They don’t seem have any legitimacy in anything they do, and so should be taken as a site that has the high potential of being a scam. We highly recommend that you find another place to shop at other than TheViralBest.com

An Alternative Shopping Site

We recently reviewed GeekBuying, a site that has a lot of discounts, legit discounts, on a wide variety of products. We would recommend you check them out, and see if you can find the product you wanted from them, since they have a lot more legitimacy than TheViralBest.com

MinnersGold.com Review: Is MinnersGold A Scam? (Yeah, It Is…)

MinnersGold.com Review: Is MinnersGold A Scam? (Yeah, It Is…)

In this article we’ll be looking at why exactly we believe MinnersGold.com is a scam. Unfortunately, there have been a lot of investment-type sites popping up lately, scamming people out of their money and hard-earned cash.

Hopefully, by the end of this article, you’ll have learned a thing or two on how to spot an investment scam, so that in the future, you also can help warn yourself and others against any other fraudulent websites that pop up.

What Exactly Is MinnersGold.com?

MinnersGold.com's Main PageSo here’s the deal. When we first saw this website, we found it to be pretty strange. And that was before we even went to it!

They call themselves Minners Gold. Now, we will admit that we were bad at spelling in school, but even we could tell that they spelled miners wrong. And that isn’t something that is good.

You see, some scammers will have ‘typos’ in their domain name, so that you think it is the actual site, when in fact it isn’t. Now, we don’t know if they deliberately did this, or if they did this on accident. It could be that the person didn’t actually know how to spell miner, and, well, that is how the domain got its name.

But what is the site really about?

In a nutshell, MinnersGold is pretty much one of those investment sites. You give them money, and they claim that they can turn that around within a day or so, depending on which investment plan you choose.

As you scroll even further down, you learn just how large this company supposedly is:

MinnersGold.com's Asset WorthAccording to their website, they have assets worth $387 billion dollars. Now, we don’t know about you, but that’s really high. We looked briefly at other companies just to gauge how much they were worth, and found that, if MinnersGold.com was actually true, they would be in the top 10 of the highest market-value businesses in the world.

You’ll also notice that they claim to have started on January 1st, 2016. But, if one would take a deeper look, they would find that this isn’t quite right. They’ve actually only been around for a few months.

How Long Has MinnersGold.com Been Around?

Whenever someone registers a domain name, they do it through a company. Now, that company saves the date when that domain was registered. Not only that, but they put that date in public places for people to look up.

What this all means is that you, the reader could go, and check when MinnersGold.com was first registered. And if you were to do that, you would find that the site was registered February 21st, 2019 – a little over two months ago (as of this writing).

How Old Is MinnersGold.com?So, who is really right? The information in the screenshot above, or what MinnersGold claims on their site?

Well, the information on the screenshot is the correct date as to when the domain was registered. It is entirely possible (though not highly plausible) that they had a different domain they were using.

Interestingly enough, they claim on their FAQ that they are connected with a business, and give the business number for it. Additionally, they link to the website page to verify this:

MinnerGold.com a real company?They claimed to be registered as ‘minnersgold.com LTD’. Now, here is where things get a little confusing and bizarre. Because when we went to the page details, we found something completely different.

Oil-TNX LTD Business InfoAs you can see from the above screenshot, the company number does appear to be correct. But it comes to a company that goes by the name of OIL-TNX LTD.

We guess one could argue that OIL-TNX LTD is the owner of MinnersGold.com. But there is even more revealing information on the  screenshot above.

If you notice on the right-hand side, it tells you exactly when this company was incorporated. And that was November 1st, 2017. Almost two years later than when MinnersGold.com claims to be in business!

Not only that, but the company was also dissolved, or closed down, on the 9th of April 2019! So the supposed company that is connected to MinnersGold.com is no longer operating!

Clearly, MinnersGold is lying about who they are, and when exactly they were created. And that means that they probably are lying about everything else they are claiming on their site.

Anything Else In The FAQ’s?

There was another thing we wanted to point out in the FAQ’s that shows how fraudulent this site really is. And that is there guarantee about their investment.Unreliable Guarantees Many times, scammers will make false claims to lure their traffic in, and get them to invest in the program. And MinnersGold.com is no different.

As you’ve noticed from the screenshot above, MinnersGold.com claims to guarantee that you will get a return for your money.
Now, in the majority of the cases, you do get a return for your investments (they are called investments, after all). But that doesn’t mean that it is guaranteed. There is always some sort of risk that something will go wrong, or that the market will drop.

If someone comes along and claims that they have a risk-free product, then they are lying to you – and that is guaranteed! If someone says otherwise, then they are someone that you don’t want to be dealing with.
The best investors will tell you there is always risk, and maybe even significant risk, but then they’ll go into detail as to why they believe this investment will actually work, and why you should trust them.
MinnersGold.com doesn’t do this, which helps bring out the truth of who and what MinnersGold.com really is.

MinnersGold.com Is A Scam!

MinnersGold.com is 100%, without a doubt, a scam. They are a business that we would highly recommend everyone steer clear from. They are lying about how much they’ve made, who they really are, and how long they’ve been around.

When we looked at this site a few months ago, we actually emailed them, and asked a question. As you would probably believe, they never responded to our question:Email Sent, But Never Received A ReplyAll in all, it’s always best to double check every piece of information that someone gives you. If they claim to be around for three years, then search around, and verify that they indeed have. In the end, you’ll be a lot smarter (and hopefully richer) because of it.

Thanks To Jilles for first asking about this, and then commenting about it being a scam!

Data Entry Job Scams! Don’t Be So Easily Fooled!

Data Entry Job Scams! Don’t Be So Easily Fooled!

What does a review of WorkWithMobile.com, a review of TheWorkMoney.com, a review of PayingType.com, and a review of TakingWork.com all have in common? They are all scam websites.
Not only that, but these sites are all sites that are exactly the same. Same images. Same designs. And even the same words.

We’ve been monitoring several sites, and came to find that they’ve changed their scam completely around, and are now trying to scam people through this new data entry job scam.

What Do The Sites Claim To Give You?

TakingWork.com's Main PageAs you can see from the screenshot above, TakingWork.com, along with the rest of the sites, claims to be a site where you can earn money from home. Not only that, but you can earn money by doing ‘simple data entry jobs and tasks.’

What is data entry?

Basically, when someone wants someone to enter something into a form, or fill certain information into a spreadsheet, it can be called data entry work. You’re simply entering data. It’s pretty easy and straightforward. We’ve done it before and it’s, well, sort of boring and mundane. But it is work nevertheless.

Nothing is overly wrong with a data entry job. The only thing is that most of these jobs don’t pay a lot, and so you have to do a lot of entering to actually make something.

But these sites, TakingWork.com and the rest, are all claiming that you can make $1 dollar per line of data entry!

What You Get Paid ForAs you can see from the above screenshot, PayingType.com shows you just exactly what you get paid for – ‘the cost of per line data entry is 1 dollar.’ Not only that, but if you refer someone to the site, you also get half of what they make.

Let’s think about that. Someone is going to pay you $1 dollar for entering in a line of data? Do you really think that someone would really do this?

Not only that, but they are actually going to have to pay more than $1 dollar if they pay for half of what the referral makes. If your referral makes $1 dollar, then you make 50 cents. Which means that the person paying for the data entry work is actually paying $1.50 dollars per line of data.

Now, we’ve done data entry work, and we know just how much they pay. No one in their right mind would pay that much for that type of work. If you were good, you might be able to get 50 cents for 50 lines of data entry. But $1 dollar for one line? Something is clearly not right here.

But, of course, we can’t just leave it like that, can we? No, we can’t!

We explored a little more, and found that these sites, PayingType.com, TakingWork.com, and the others, all had the same exact testimonials. And on top of that, they were found to be faked!

The Faked Testimonials!

Fake TestimonialsIf you scroll down to the middle of one of the sites, like TheWorkMoney.com, you’ll find two testimonials. And they are very interesting testimonials.
The first is from someone named Mark Stern. What’s even more interesting is that this guy named Mark, who seems like he has a male name, has a female image! Also, it appears Mark doesn’t quite understand how to speak in English, since there are quite a few grammatical mistakes within his (or her) review.

The second testimonials is from someone called Jennifer Wiens. She has similar broken English, and claims to have made $5700 dollars, which she got from a check.

Now, we took the liberty of searching the internet to see if these images on the testimonials appear anywhere else. And we found that they did. Not only that, but we found a testimonial that uses Mark’s first name, and Jennifer’s last name!

Mark Wiens?In the above screen capture, you’ll notice a very familiar face – but this time, the person’s name is Mark Wiens! And not only that, but they claim to be the CEO of Google!

Anyone who can do a quick search would know that the CEO of Google is actually Sundar Pichai, and not Mark Alviro Wiens. So, the above testimonial (found somewhere else) is clearly not reliable and also faked.

Also, if you search for the other image, Jennifer’s profile picture, you can find her on dozens of websites, most of which talk about some sort of hair styles or wall paper.

Hairstyles and Fake ImagesAll the above is to show that TheWorkMoney.com and the other sites are pretending to have legit testimonials. They realistically just made up those reviews so that people would have a higher chance of believing them.

But, even though they are lying about their testimonials, and even though they have to be scamming people by saying you’ll get $1 dollar for every line of data you enter, we still decided to see if we could actually make money and get paid.

How Do You Make Money?

It’s very simple on how you make money. You either do data entry work, or you refer people, and they make the money for you. Of course, it’s not as easy as it sounds (nor as legit as it is), but we went ahead and created an account. After we did, we found that there was no place to actually do any data entry work!

No Data Entry Jobs!As you can see from the above screenshot of WorkWithMobile.com, there was no way to make money with data entry jobs. We searched high and low. So how exactly did we make $205?

We did it through referring others and getting them to register an account. (Okay, so in all actuality, we know this is a scam, and we know how WorkWithMobile.com functions, and so we just created a bunch of test accounts through our referral link, and ‘made’ the money – we didn’t really refer anyone else).

Now, this is where things get interesting. For every referral you get to sign up, you make $10. And you need to have a minimum of $100 dollars before you can request a pay out. So, after getting to the minimum, and getting 10 people to sign up, we requested a pay out.

We need 20 referrals?Yes, WorkWithMobile.com told us that we need to have a minimum of 20 referrals before we could actually pay out. So, with our cool techniques, we made another 10 accounts, and got to the referral minimum.
But even still, we weren’t able to get paid:

Verify The CaptchaYou see, to get paid out, you have to do a simple little captcha test. Sadly, it’s not simple, and it’s only making them get money, and not you.

For every captcha test you do, they make some profit off of it, since most of them are surveys. They get you to do a survey, they reap the rewards of that commission to the survey, and they never pay you.
We’ve seen this type of scam before, and unfortunately, it’s not going to leave any time soon. They are scamming hundreds, if not thousands, of people from their time, and profiting off of others hard work. It’s a scam and a fraud.

Data Entry Job Scam!

Don’t be fooled! WorkWithMobile.com is a scam, as well as PayingType.com, TheWorkMoney.com, and TakingWork.com. They are all fraudulent websites, and are not legit work-at-home jobs.

We would highly recommend that you stay away from them. You won’t get paid. Trust us on this. We’ve seen these types of scams before, and there is no way to get your money. They won’t reply to your messages, and they don’t care that they are scamming innocent people.

Thomsmall.com Review: Is Thomsmall The Real Beats By Dre store? (No, it’s not…)

Thomsmall.com Review: Is Thomsmall The Real Beats By Dre store? (No, it’s not…)

Recently, through our contact form, we recieved a request about Thomsmall.com, and whether they were legit or not. We have since added it to our list of scam websites. And because we added it to our list, and seem to be getting more people looking at it, we decided to write a review about Thomsmall.com

Is Thomsmall a scam? Are they The Real Beats By Dre store? If the the title doesn’t answer those questions, then we’ll have to spell it out again. Yes, Thomsmall is indeed a scam, and no, they’re not the The Real Beats By Dre store. But let us explain why below!

Thomsmall.com And Beats By Dre

ThomSmall's Main PageWhen you go to Thomsmall.com, you immediately should be able to tell that something just isn’t right about this site. And that is that they seem to be claiming that they are Beats By Dre.

Beats By Dre is a popular site that sells wireless headphones, and is owned by Apple. Doing a quick search on any search engine will show you the real site. And Thomsmall has nothing to do with that real site.

There are several indications that they’re trying to impersonate Beats By Dre. You’ll notice that in the screenshot above, they have a welcome notice saying “Beats by Dr. Dre Store”. They also seem to be using the same logo as Beats By Dre.

The red circle logo with the black ‘B’ in it is in fact part of Beats By Dre, which means that they own the copyright for it, and are the only ones that (should) officially do business with that logo.

But we guess Thomsmall.com doesn’t care that their doing something illegal, dishonest, and downright wrong. Thomsmall.com goes so far as to claim their copyright is from Dr. Dre as well!

Copyright NoticeIf you were to hover over the copyright notice on their site, you would notice that the embedded link is going back to Thomsmall’s website. If it were actually copyright by who they claim it is, it should go back to the official Beats By Dre store.

So, right off the bat, we can see that Thomsmall.com is clearly lying about who they are, and just what company they are a part of.

Don’t Be Deceived By Discounts!

Discounts aren’t a bad thing. In fact, we recommend that you find products with discounts, and spend less money when you can. But just because a site is claiming to have discounts doesn’t mean that you should believe them. Especially if they are a newer site.

Scammers love putting discounts on their sites. Because everyone wants something cheaper, when you have a discount for something popular, you’ll more than likely get a following very quickly.

There is something interesting about all these discounts that Thomsmall.com has on their website. And that is that on every page, all the products seem to have the same exact discount and price!

Same Discount - Same PriceIt’s not typical for all the products to be the same price, and for them to have the exact discount either. That’s just not the norm when it comes to these type of things.

So, when looking at these lower prices, you should immediately realize that something doesn’t look as legit as it should be. Discounts come because of supply and demand, because of overstock and understock. And it’s highly doubtful that all these are going to come out exactly the same.

Now, that isn’t to say that legit sites don’t do this – it’s just that more than often, a scammer’s site(s) will often have the same exact discount for all their products (why, we don’t know.)

So always be on the lookout of bogus discounts, and don’t be easily fooled by products with low prices.

Linking Fraudulent Websites Together

Scammers will often leave a trail of fraud and scam behind them. If you put enough pieces together, you can almost follow them through the previous months, and see exactly what they’ve been up to.

We decided to do some further investigating with this site, and tried to see if they would give us any other information. What we found told us that this site definitely wasn’t a site we wanted our audience to go to (besides for the fact that we already knew this due to Thomsmall impersonating Beats By Dre).

We received an email from Thomsmall.com, and found something very interesting within that email:

Details In The EmailIt was in that general email that told us how happy they were to have us join their store, and what the different pages were for. They gave an email, and said, if anyone needed more help, email them through that email address.

Strangely enough, that email address has been listed on other sites. Those other sites have be shown to be fraudulent. Which means, the owner of Thomsmall.com is going to be no different.

Scams the owner has been a part ofAs you can see from the screenshot, the owner of Thomsmall.com is definitely not one who has been doing things legitimately. There are dozens of cases where they have been doing some sort of fraudulent scheme.

There really isn’t much more to say on the matter. Thomsmall.com can be linked to other sites that have been show to be fraudulent. And there is no way that Thomsmall is going to be different.

Is Thomsmall.com A Scam?

Thomsmall.com is indeed a scam, and the owner is indeed a scam artist. They’ve been operating fraudulent websites for a while now, and they won’t be stopping any time soon, unfortunately.

If you ever find a site that is trying to pretend to be another site, or is claiming to have discounts, then you always need to investigate further, and see if they are really legit. Spending that time researching will save you money and time, in the long run.

So all in all, we definitely wouldn’t recommend that you purchase from Thomsmall.com nor trust the owners behind the website.

On a side note, we weren’t sure how to pronounce Thomsmall.com’s website name. Is It Thom’s Mall, or Thom Small?

Thanks to Joe for asking us about this site through our contact form. Make sure to leave your thoughts on how to pronounce Thomsmall.com in the comments section below!

GeekBuying.com Review: Is GeekBuying A Scam? Or Do They Have Authentic Discounts?

GeekBuying.com Review: Is GeekBuying A Scam? Or Do They Have Authentic Discounts?

We’ve been looking into a lot of scam websites lately, so we decided, why not find something legit to look into. And so GeekBuying came as something for us to review, and check out.

Is GeekBuying a scam? Or are their discounts legit? That is just what we’re going to be looking at, as we sort through who GeekBuying is exactly, what they have to offer, and how you take action on the many low prices they have to offer!

What Is GeekBuying?

GeekBuying's Main PageWe’ll start off with what GeekBuying isn’t. It isn’t a place where only geeky people shop, and it’s definitely not a place that only has geeky technology.

GeekBuying is a site that tries to bring all the latest gadgets and gizmos to an unbeatable price by offering discounts and low prices. At least, that’s what their About Us page says.
But gadgets aren’t the only thing they sell. They have a large collection of brands of clothing, different types of car accessories, and even Home and Garden products!

GeekBuying has a large collection of brands that they sell, some well-known, and others less known. Popular brands include Philips, Asus, Vivo, and Emax.
But their large collection of brands aren’t the only thing that GeekBuying has to offer.

The cool thing with GeekBuying is that they are always offering things with discounts, flash deals, and leaving things on their Clearance page. So there is always something you can find for a low price.

Flash Deals

Flash-Deals On GeekBuyingAnother cool feature with GeekBuying is that they have flash sales, similar to what is shown above. So for several days they have a list of different gadgets and other tech related products on sale.
But what is even more cool is that they have a list of products that will be part of their next flash deal. So there is no need to have to guess on what will be in the next latest deal. If there is anything you want, just leave yourself a note, and check GeekBuying in the next couple of days.

Clearance By Price

Sorting By PriceOn their clearance page, GeekBuying has that great function of being able to sort prices and see what’s for sale with a specific price range. We don’t know about you, but this is a great feature that we specifically like about this site.

Usually, when we’re looking for something, we have a specific budget, and a specific amount that we can spend. Using this function can help us weed out those products that we can’t really purchase, due to how much they would cost.

Another nice thing about this is that you can find different products of similar value. That way, if you have an idea of what you want to purchase, but are looking for alternative prices, then you can use this function to do just that.

Discounts Galore!

The Many Discounts If you’re looking for a place where you can find discounts, then GeekBuying is the place to go. Not everything is going to heavily discounted, but many things are. The majority of products that we looked at were over 30%.
There were things discounted up towards 60%-70%, with only a few things discounted as low as 20%. Our guess is that the average discount is between 30% to 40%.

And the discounts aren’t for a specific brand or product. They are for nearly every category on their shop. Whether you were looking for a discount in their Home and Garden section, or looking for those low prices in their fashion section, you will definitely be able to find a discount.

Social Media And Reviews

Social Media ButtonsWhen looking at a site to make sure it’s not a scam, you must always check anything and everything. And one of the many things we check is a company’s social media accounts, and any reviews that we can find about them.

Many times, scammers will pretend to have social media buttons on their site, but not actually link to anything. Thankfully, GeekBuying is not like that.

GeekBuying's Instagram AccountAs you can see from the above screenshot, we can clearly see that GeekBuying is on Instagram. Not only that, but they have quite a large following as well. This helps show their authenticity and their legitimacy.

And what adds even more authority to them being legit is that on all their social media accounts, they are actively posting things, showing that they are still around, and still there to help people.

GeekBuying's Twitter AccountNow, while they are actively promoting on social media, keeping things up-to-date, and showing their authenticity, what do other people have to say about them? Are there reviews out there by other people, on how good or bad GeekBuying really is?

Actually there are. The place we’ll be looking at specifically is a place called ResellerRatings.

GeekBuying ReviewsResellerRatings gives GeekBuying a 9.31 rating out of 10. With over 12K of reviews, and the majority of them 5 stars, there really isn’t much that people don’t like about GeekBuying.

Not only that, but with these types of review places, there is a feature that allows the business to reply back to people or reviews that put them in a negative light. And GeekBuying utilizes this feature to the best of its ability.

Replying back 39% of the timeLooking over the past few months, you can see that they try their best to answer anyone’s complaints or issues. And most of those lower reviews are people who do say that everything did turn out okay for them in the end.
So overall, GeekBuying is definitely not trying to intentionally scam people out of products or money. And they are definitely not doing a bad job at what they’re doing, since there are thousands of reviews noting that they were satisfied with what they ordered.

Where is GeekBuying Located?

GeekBuying is a store that resells other brand’s products, so they aren’t exactly located in one location. They have warehouses all over the world, in Spain, America, Italy, Germany, and Poland. Their main warehouses are in Hong Kong and China, where they can ship internationally, if need be.

GeekBuying is owned and operated by HONGKONG GEEKBUY INTERNATIONAL E-COMMERCE LIMITED. Now, nothing is wrong with this company. There is just one thing that we do want to point out, so as not to leave people in the dark.

If you haven’t noticed yet, GeekBuying is mainly located in Hong Kong and China, and their products are mainly manufactured in China.

Again, nothing is wrong with this. But because of this, there might be brands that were manufactured cheaply, or products that take a while to get to you.
Most of the reviews didn’t suggest this, but with products from China, there is always a possibility of getting something this isn’t completely up to the standards of quality that most people like.

Is GeekBuying A Scam?

GeekBuying is definitely no scam. We would wholeheartedly purchase from them in a heartbeat. They are who they claim to be. No more, no less.

They have a ton of positive reviews for their site. They’ve been around for a long while, and they definitely aren’t going anywhere any time soon.
They have discounts for every category they put on their website, as well as the ability to sell products at a wholesale price. They even have student discounts for those still in school!

So, all in all, GeekBuying is a great place to go and find a product that you’ve been wanting for a cheaper price. We would recommend them  to anyone and everyone!

Vipcanzy.site Review: Legit Prices On Vipcanzy, Or Are they Selling Scam Cameras?

Vipcanzy.site Review: Legit Prices On Vipcanzy, Or Are they Selling Scam Cameras?

Every day we get a number of people asking us to take a look at a certain website or product. Just recently, we received a comment asking us about the legitimacy of Vipcanzy.site, a website that seems to be selling Canon cameras.

The very short answer to whether Vipcanzy.site is a scam or not, is a very positive, we’re not completely certain. But from what we’ve seen with other sites, and from what we know after looking at a vast amount of websites, Vipcanzy.site isn’t a business that you probably want to be buying from.

Why do we think that?

Vipcanzy.site’s Claims And Impersonations

Vipcanzy's main pageVipcanzy.site claims to sell Canon cameras. As most of you know, Canon is a major producer of quality cameras. It’s a popular brand among photography experts. But, when you take a closer look at Vipcanzy’s site, you find that they aren’t only selling Canon cameras, but they are also claiming to be Canon as well.

It should be obvious to most that this isn’t the official store of Canon, right? Their site doesn’t really seem up-to-date as what an official site would look like, as well as their domain name, Vipcanzy, has nothing to do with Canon. But, even though these things aren’t so, they are still claiming to be Canon.

If you take a look at the screenshot above, you will notice that they have in bold letters, the word “Canon“. If that isn’t enough proof, then we’re not sure what is. But, there actually is even more proof.
If you look at the bottom of their website, called the footer, you’ll find that they copyright their site. Now, copyrighting a site isn’t anything unusual. What is unusual is who they claim is doing the copyrighting!

Copyright Notice By CANON?As noted in the above image, the name they put on their copyright notice is “CANON – Official Online Store”. Vipcanzy is without question trying to impersonate the official Canon website.

But what does this all really mean?

It means that the site we’re looking at is illegally pretending to be someone that they really aren’t. It means that Vipcanzy is trying to make anyone on their site think that they are the real Canon site and store. And that is just plain wrong.

Often-times, scammers will set up websites and try to impersonate a specific brand, or a particular product. People will come to their site, thinking it’s legit, purchase from it, and lose their money without ever getting anything that they ordered.

While we can’t say with certainty that Vipcanzy’s products aren’t legit, we can say that they are definitely doing something illegal and because of that, they shouldn’t be trusted or used.

Low Prices = Scammer Site?

Low Prices On Vipcanzy.siteVipcanzy.site is currently running a supposed discount, where all of their products are being sold for a fraction of what they originally cost. This is a typical ploy by scammers to get people to order things from them.
Don’t get us wrong. We’re not saying that every site you see that has discounts is a scam website. And neither are sites that have low prices.

What we are saying is that if you ever come into contact with a site that is having discounts, or has products with low prices, it is always best to question the authenticity of those prices. Don’t just take the word of the site. Look around, and see if this is normal, or if they have a good explanation as to why they have those discounts.

As you look around Vipcanzy.site, you don’t really see anything that details why they have such low prices. All they have is a simple note about “Featured Daily Offers”. Nothing about how they are able to sell them so cheaply, or why they are able to offer them at a discounted price.

Because of this, there is a high chance of this site being a scam. Low prices on a site that doesn’t tell you exactly why they are there is never good. They always lead to people losing money.

Do You Wear Your Cameras?

As we were looking over their Shipping & Returns page, we noticed that they had a rather weird clause in it. They said that they would only accept things that were ‘unworn’.

Returning Unworn ProductsSo, the product you buy has to be unworn? What does that even mean for the cameras? That you can’t put it around your neck? Or does it mean that you can’t use these cameras as shoes to make you look taller?

What this is basically showing us is that this site isn’t put together well at all. In fact, more than likely, the owners of Vipcanzy.site just copied and pasted this from somewhere else. Our guess is that they took this from a clothing store.

In other words, Vipcanzy didn’t put much thought into their site when they made it, nor did they really read what they were adding as their pages. Which gives them even less credibility of being Canon, and much less legitimacy in our eyes.

Can You Even Contact Them?

Even though we knew that this site probably has nothing good on it, we decided to create an account with this site, to see if we could find anything else deeper in. What we didn’t find troubled us.

Usually, when you create an account on a website, you get an email notification that you created an account with that specific email. Strangely enough, when we did it (and they said they would send an email), we never seemed to get that specific email, welcoming us to Vipcanzy.

And, because we set our accounts with strong passwords (or then again, pretty random passwords), and because we sometimes forget what our passwords are, we somehow couldn’t log back into our new account.

Password reset emails are great features. That is, if they actually work. Yes, we tried to reset our password, but once again, never received an email letting us do that. So what did we do? The only thing we could do – we used their contact form.Vipcanzy.site's Contact Form We sent them a nice message saying that we were locked out, and the password reset button wasn’t doing anything. And we haven’t heard anything from them since.

This isn’t good for their business. Think about it. What if you ordered something, and needed to get a hold of them. How would you do it?

You would obviously have to use their contact form, which they don’t seem to be replying to. Which means, you probably won’t get any help if something about your order goes wrong (and it probably will go wrong).

Is Vipcanzy.site A Scam?

So, here’s the thing. Because we don’t know who is really behind this site – because we don’t have any contact information, we can’t really say that Vipcanzy’s products are a ‘scam’.
However, we can say that Vipcanzy is definitely impersonating a real website, and is trying to pretend to be Canon. And that is unethical, and illegal. On top of that, the site itself isn’t even a month old!

So in the end, Vipcanzy.site isn’t really a company that you want to be a part of. We highly recommend that you don’t purchase from them, or trust them. Not until there is more information about them. Most likely, the only thing that will come out of doing business with them will be headaches and loss of money.

Have you purchased from Vipcanzy.site? And did you received any contact information? Or do you have any additional thoughts you would like to share about Vipcanzy.site? We would love to know them. Make sure to leave us a note in the comments section below!

OnNobleSportsStore.com Review: Is On Noble Sports A Scam? Or Are Their Products Really Free?

OnNobleSportsStore.com Review: Is On Noble Sports A Scam? Or Are Their Products Really Free?

Scammers are using everything now-a-days to try to entice people to their site, and get them to order something from their store. And OnNobleSportsStore.com could be just that.
Is On Noble Sports A Scam? That is just what we’re trying to get to the bottom of, and hopefully by the end of this article, you’ll be better informed to decide for yourself whether OnNobleSportsStore.com is legit.

We’ll admit it right now. We can’t exactly prove that On Noble Sports is a scam. But given what we’ve seen, and what we know, that is just what we would lean towards.

So, what exactly do we know?

What Is OnNobleSportsStore.com?

On Noble Sport's Main PageOn Noble Sports is a store that claims to be selling jerseys. But the interesting thing is they currently aren’t selling anything – they’re giving it away for free, assuming that you pay for shipping!

As you can notice in the above image (or by going to their site), they claim to have a 24-hour sale going on. Now, we don’t know about you, but this made us a little suspicious.
We recently saw another site that claimed to have a 24-hour sale, and that ended up being a scam. You can check out our review of that site, CatsNKitties.com, here. We would recommend that you take a look at it, since it has a lot of similarities with the On Noble Sports Store site.

What’s Being Sold?

Again, nothing is really being sold. Everything is for free, or so they claim. You just need to pay for shipping.

Everything For Free?As you can see from the screenshot above, the site is running a sale of Basketball Jerseys – all for free. While most of them are usually over $100, On Noble Store has somehow been able to knock that price down to $0.00.

We took the liberty of pretending to order something, to see just how much shipping would cost. Many times, new sites will have a legit sale like the one being promoted on the On Noble Sports Store site, and just add a large shipping fee to sort of outweigh the cost.

Our shipping only came to a little over $14 dollars for the extra large Raptor Jersey we decided to add.

$14.97 dollars for shipping?For a $100 dollar product, that shipping fee wouldn’t really cover any of the cost they would need if they actually sold the shirt, and had free shipping (or something similar). Which means that this site doesn’t look as authentic as it might appear.

The Site Isn’t Even That Old…

We decided to see just how old this site was, and found that it’s actually only around one day old.

Site Was Registered On April 21st, 2019Whenever a new site is registered, the date that it is registered is stored in public places for people to look up. As you can see above, On Noble Sports Store was registered (and thus created) yesterday (as of writing this). That probably means that their 24-hour sale is going to end soon.

Or is it?

We don’t know when you, the reader, will be reading this. But more than likely it will be sometime after April 22nd, 2019, the day this article was written. If that is true, and On Noble Sports Store’s 24-hour sale is still going, then it probably means that they were lying about it being 24-hours.

On top of that, we found that On Noble Sports Store isn’t the only site that is giving away free jerseys:

Another exact site, OnNobleSports.comIf you note the screenshot above, it’s from a website called OnNobleSports.com (not OnNobleSportsStore.com, the site we are currently looking at). This second site also has the same exact website, with even the same promotional 24-hour sale, as OnNobleSportsStore.com!
And this is where things get interesting.

When you register a website, you have to go through some site to do it. Both these two sites went through a company called Tucows Domains Inc. Now, if you remember, we told you to read our review of another site, called CatsNKitties.com.
It just so happens that Cats N Kitties was registered through the same exact website:Cats N Kitties Whois Information

There are dozens of sites that you can register a website through, and these three sites, all of which have similar elements between them, are registered through the same company? That makes On Noble Store Sports look even less legit.

The Similarities with Cats N Kitties

There are other similarities between On Noble Sports Store and Cats N Kitties. Cats N Kitties was actively promoted through Facebook ads. On Noble Sports Store, according to the person we received it from, said they found it through Facebook Ads.

Also, Cats N Kitties was using an email address from Protonmail.com, which is a free email service provider. Now, there are hundreds of free email service providers that someone can use to create a free email address. But, as you probably have guessed, On Noble Sports Store is also using a Protonmail email address:Email Address To ContactThose similarities between a website we found to be a scam, and this new site shouldn’t be taken lightly. They make On Noble Sports Store a site that looks even less authentic than what we had previously thought.

Terms And Conditions Section

180 days for delivery?Reading a site’s Terms and Conditions can reveal a lot to you, especially if you keep your eyes open for those things that don’t sound quite right.

As you can see from the screenshot above, as we were having fun reading On Noble Sports Store’s Terms and Conditions, we came across this clause that said to ‘allow up to 180 days for delivery.’ (?!) We have to wait for half a year for them to deliver it?

Are they hand-threading all the jerseys, which is why it may take a long time to come to us? Or are they expecting a lot of delays? 180 days to deliver a product is something that we have never heard of.

We have no idea why this clause is in their Terms and Conditions, but we do have a rather educated guess, if we assume this site is a scam.

Most banks and credit card companies can’t help dispute a purchase and get a refund after a number of days. And that number of days is usually around 180 days.

Is On Noble Sports Store putting this in to make sure that you can’t dispute an order you purchased? We don’t know, but it definitely doesn’t look good for the business if they take up to half a year for products to get delivered to people.

Is On Noble Sports Store A Scam?

Because the site is only a day old, and because we couldn’t find any reviews about it else where online, we can’t really confirm that this site is a scam. But, because of the similarities with Cats N Kitties, and because of how young the site is, we definitely wouldn’t recommend that you order from it just quite yet.

The site has a lot of scam warnings on it, as well as being the exactly identical with another site that has been online for only 8 days. Its running a 24-hour free sale (which is probably still going to be up after 24-hours), and offering products far too cheap than what their worth.

Additionally, we never really talked about what On Noble Sports Store doesn’t have. They don’t seem to have a Privacy Policy, nor any About Us page. And while they do list an email address in their Terms and Conditions, there isn’t any clear Contact Us page to get in touch with them if things go wrong.

Because of all these things, if we had to make a choice of whether to order from them, then we personally wouldn’t. They just aren’t legit enough to be authentic. Or at least, they aren’t legit enough yet.

Now, you may be reading this about a week or a month after we published this article, and you may have been scammed (if we assume it was a scam). What should the next steps be to help yourself and others?

  1. Leave a comment below explaining what happened. This will help others who read this review to know that this is a scam, and to not trust it.
  2. Go onto Facebook, find the ad (provided it’s still around), and report it/leave a review of it. This will help Facebook stop letting scammers promote through Facebook ads.
  3. Contact your Credit Card issuer, explain the situation, and see if they can help you get your money back.

Thanks to Pavel for spotting this for us, and asking us about it. If you have any thoughts about OnNobleSportsStore.com, feel free to leave them in the comments section below!

TopClothesShop.Site Review: Is TopClothesShop A Scam, Or Are The Discounts True?

TopClothesShop.Site Review: Is TopClothesShop A Scam, Or Are The Discounts True?

You’re probably here wondering why TopClothesShop.Site is being written about, and whether it’s a scam. Well, we’re here to help clear that whole issue up. And we’ll get right to the point: It is a scam, and a site that we recommend no one purchase from.

Of course, stopping right there wouldn’t really prove anything. With so much fake news out there, it’s always best to make sure someone proves what they claim they know. Which is what we’re hoping to do with our review of TopClothesShop.Site.
Hopefully by the end of this article, you’ll have a better understanding of how to spot a scam, as well as keep yourself safe from online fraudulent websites and scammers who want to take your money.

TopClothesShop.Site: What Do They Sell?

TopClothesShop.Site

As their name suggests, TopClothesShop.Site sells clothing. Well, that and handbags. And, as you can see from the above screenshot, you’ll notice that it has a sale on the site and discounts!

Or does it?

Many scam websites will have some sort of discount, or have products with low prices, to get traffic to their site and purchase their ‘fake’ items. And TopClothesShop.Site is no different. Everything is marked down to some really low price, making it a lot more enticing to purchase.

Really Low DiscountsAs you can see from the above image, there are even things that are discounted over 90%! Now, just because a site is proclaiming that it has a discount doesn’t mean that it is immediately a scam. There are discounts out there that are legit, and should be taken advantage of.

But, every discount you come across, you should really question it’s authenticity, especially if it’s claiming to have over 90% knocked off its price.

But this wasn’t the only thing that we found to be strange with the site.

Who Is Versace?

When you go to the site, it becomes clearer that the site is claiming to be some store called Versace. Now, for those who don’t know, the person Versace was an Italian clothes designer, in which a company, called Versace, was started.

What’s even more interesting is that Versace has their own store – https://www.versace.com/. So, why exactly is TopClothesShop.Site claiming to be Versace?TopClothesShop.Site

Claiming to be a store when you really aren’t isn’t something that is legal. You can’t open up a store and pretend to be a popular brand of clothing.
If you see something like that on the internet, then it’s best not to work with them, and to report them immediately. They’re doing something that only hurts them and the company they are trying to impersonate.

Now, if a store is impersonating a company, that doesn’t make them completely a scam. Yes, if they are copying some other company that does mean that they are doing something illegal, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t receive anything from them.

Many times, these types of sites will spring up, offer discounts, and actually send you a product. The only problem will be that the product you receive is actually just a knock-off brand product that was made from China (or some other cheap place), which is why they can sell it so inexpensive.

Either way, if you are looking for authentic, Versace brand clothing, then TopClothesShop.Site isn’t the place to look for it.

Similarities With Other Scam Websites

We’ve looked at a large number of scam websites, and the more we look at, the more we see similarities between scam websites.

When we had originally looked at TopClothesShop.Site, we immediately thought that it was a scam website, because we had reviewed two other websites that had the same exact type of website theme that TopClothesShop.Site had.Grey Sides On Theme Depending on how you viewed the site, you may (or may not) be able to see that this site has gray sidebars on both sides. They were exactly identical, in size and color, to the sites we reviewed recently – Poloxt.com and Porbc.com.

Because of this, we suspected that it was the same scammer behind all three of these sites, and after a few attempts to get to the bottom of it, we found that it was indeed the same person behind all three scams!

Details In The Email

We love emails, as you may notice from previous articles that we’ve written about. And this site is no different. Originally, this site had its email system messed up, and so we couldn’t verify that it was actually from the same scammer. But after we waited a few days, we found out that it was true.

Scammer's Email AddressFor a while now, we’ve been finding more and more sites that have been coming from someone who uses the email address CS1(@)customerservicehome(.)com. And that email address has been linked to all kinds of fraudulent websites:

fraudulent scams scammer's been a part ofAs you can see from above, there are numerous things that this scammer has been a part of. They’ve had a few social media scams, as well as scamming with PayPal. They’ve even had more than dozens of scam websites they have been behind!

Because of all this, this site, TopClothesShop.Site, isn’t going to be much different from all the rest that this scammer has been part of. TopClothesShop.Site is a fraudulent website, and one that we personally wouldn’t recommend that you use.

TopClothesShop.Site Is A Scam!

Well, that’s our proof that TopClothesShop.Site is a scam. And there is more that we could add to the weight of our argument.

If you scrolled to the bottom of their site, you would see some social media buttons. They should go to their social media accounts, but, interestingly enough, they don’t go anywhere. This is a typical tact that scammers use, making it look like they are on social media, when it reality, they aren’t.

Also, when you looked up just when exactly this site was created, you’ll come to find out that it was 11 days ago (from writing this article):

Registered On April 11th, 2019The site was registered on April 11th, 2019. That makes it less than 2 weeks old. Once again, this is a common ploy that scammers will use. They will create a new website, and make it appear like its been around for a long while, so that people will think they are a legitimate company.
Because of all these warnings, and from what we were able to find through our review of TopClothesShop.Site, we really wouldn’t trust it, nor recommend it to those who are asking about it. Nothing good will come from it, and you’ll only have heartache after headache from trying to order from this site.

Thanks to Claudia for letting us know about this scam!

CoinStarHaven.com Review: Is CoinStarHaven A Scam, Or Can You Really Double Your Money In 7 days?

CoinStarHaven.com Review: Is CoinStarHaven A Scam, Or Can You Really Double Your Money In 7 days?

Through our contact form, we received a question regarding CoinStarHaven, and because of it, we added it into our query of things to write about. We’ve since had several others comment on its authenticity as well.

Is CoinStarHaven.com a scam? Or can you really double your money within 7 days? That’s what we’ll be hopefully looking into as we review CoinStarHaven.com. With many people looking into Cryptocurrency as an investment, we’ve seen a rise in scam sites targeting this audience.

What Is CoinStarHaven.com?

CoinStarHaven's Main PageCoinStarHaven.com is a Cryptocurrency investment company. Or at least, that’s what they say they are. They claim to have experts in this field who have been able to invest over 40 million in the last two years, all with favorable returns.

The thing that grabs most people’s attention is that they claim they can double your money within 7 days. And this is where people should start to question how CoinStarHaven.com works, and what they offer.

Don’t get us wrong; we’re not saying that you can’t double your investments within 7 days. If you search around for testimonials, we’re sure you could find people who have done that (although they may be few and far in between).

But what we are saying is that if someone guarantees that your investment will double, then you really should start to question the authenticity of the website. There is always risk with investing something, and you can never be completely certain you’ll actually make money with investments.

A good rule of thumb to follow is that if someone claims something will happen, like, for example, their services are 100% risk-free, then it’s probably something that you should steer clear from.

How Is The Money Invested?

Of course, we can’t just immediately call CoinStarHaven.com a scam when we haven’t really looked into anything. So we decided to check out how exactly they are investing the money, and how that whole process works.

We were a little dissatisfied on CoinStarHaven’s explanation of how they invest their money. We were hoping for a rather lengthy explanation, detailing as much of the finer points of investment, trading, etc, so that we could verify that it works. Unfortunately, we only found the following:

Investments Through An AlgorithmAs you can see from the screenshot above, they claim that they use a ‘high-frequency custom trading algorithm’ to double your money.

Now, we don’t know about you, but we don’t exactly trust an answer like that. It’s not that there aren’t trading algorithms out there that can do something like that, but we’ve looked into too many scam websites that say something similar, and they never go on to explain anything else.

How does this algorithm work? What models are used for it to function the way it does? What else can they tell us about this process?

Also, they claim that their algorithm ‘systematically trades thousands of bitcoins per minute’. We did a quick look at the average time it takes to trade and transfer bitcoins. While the most common answer is one hour, we did find an answer that suggested it could happen in 10 minutes.

But if they are doing this every minute, how exactly are they being confirmed within that time period? And if they are transferring thousands of bitcoins every minute, it seems impossible for this to even happen.

 Are The Owners Even Real?

If you go to CoinStarHaven.com’s About page, you’ll find that they show the owners and who they are. But when we investigated a little further, we questioned whether the founders were really legit.

Dylan Cross Actually Real?Dylan Cross claims to have been around for 10 years as an entrepreneur, starting new business ventures. But when we searched around for him, there isn’t very much we can find about him.

On top of that, we found his name in connection to another site – http://hexacoinchain.com. That site is very similar to CoinStarHaven.com, and almost has almost exact word-for-word pages as CoinStarHaven.

We decided to check out his photo, and see if, through the use of Google Images, we could find him other places. While we didn’t find him specifically, we did find his image all over the internet.

Google Image Search For Dylan CrossWhat’s interesting is that this photo is found on GettyImages, as well as IStockPhoto. For those that don’t know, those two sites are popular places to find free and paid images to use. That’s right, it looks like Dylan Cross’s profile image is actually a fake photo!

Now, maybe Dylan Cross likes his privacy or something, and so he decided to use a different photo of himself. If that is so, our next question would be, how they explain their fake testimonial reviews?

Testimonials Are Faked Too?

Two of the three testimonials on their home page were of people that we were able to find other places on the internet. But what’s interesting is the testimonial of Calvin Fitzgerald:

Calvin Fitsgerald?He seems likes a nice guy, especially since he shares the name Calvin with the owner of We Get Scammed For You, Andy Calvin. But, nice-looking guys aren’t always what they appear (or the people behind them either).

If we were to stroll to another site, https://gbs-agency.com/en/, we would find the same exact person leaving feedback on their site. Only this time, his name is Roman Kudryavtsev:

Roman Kudryavtev?So who is it? Roman or Calvin? We don’t know, and we doubt both are legit. Probably, both sites pulled the same image off the same website, and used it for a fake testimonial (which is sadly common now-a-days).

But that’s not all about Calvin Fitzgerald. As we were looking around for CoinStarHaven on the internet, we stumbled across their Instagram page, and found something even more bizarre!

Instagram's Version Of Calvin FitzgeraldIf you go to CoinStarHaven’s most recent post on Instagram (which was back in February), you’ll notice that it was a post about a testimonial. And it’s from Calvin Fitzgerald.

But why is his photo different? On the website, you have a young, clean-shaven guy. In the Instagram photo, you’ve got an older bearded-ish guy (who’s also wearing glasses and has a dog). Both have the same exact name, and give the exact same testimonial.

And it’s highly doubtful that this is a coincidence. You don’t have two people leaving the same exact review with the same exact name with different photos, unless it’s intentional. So, clearly, something is going on that we don’t know about.

Is CoinStarHaven.com A Scam?

From the people we’ve talked to on our website, who have submitted comments or something through our contact form, according to them, this site is a scam.

As we looked into it, there really wasn’t anything that confirmed to us that this was a legit program. They don’t really tell you in detail how exactly they are going to invest your money, nor how the algorithm actually works.

They also guarantee that you’ll double your money – which is something that can never be completely certain when dealing with investments. Additionally, they are using images that can be found on other websites (meaning they’re faked), and they’re using multiple photos for the same testimonial!

All in all, we wouldn’t recommend that you invest with CoinStarHaven. They haven’t really displayed anything that suggested that they are an authentic site. And because if this, we personally wouldn’t trust them.
