Ninebebot.store Review: Fake ecommerce site? (Scam Alert!)

Ninebebot.store Review: Fake ecommerce site? (Scam Alert!)

You’re probably here wondering about this site called Ninebebot.store. Your wondering whether it’s a scam, or if it’s legit. And that is just what we’re going to be delving into in this article.

Not only will we address why we are certain Ninebebot.store is a scam, but we’re hoping that by the end of it, you’ll have been able to take a few key points away. Points that should help you in the future of shopping online.

So let’s go learn about Ninebebot.store!


Quick Review

  • They are running discounts that are really high, and extremely sketchy.
  • They have information on their site that doesn’t entirely make sense.
  • They are connected with an email address that has been linked with dozens of other fraudulent scams.

Protect yourself from getting scammed online by checking out our video course, How To Detect An Online Scam, today!


Why Are The Discounts There?

Discounts

The very first thing you need to ask yourself when looking into Ninebebot is why a site has extremely low discounts.

If you take a look at the screenshot above, you’ll notice that Ninebebot has some prices so low, they are 97% off. Others are 70% off.

Those are some low prices.

You see, scammers love to use low prices to get people to purchase their products. They don’t really care how high of a discount they give – because they just want some money. Make the price low enough and enticing enough, and someone is bound to purchase it.

Now, we’re not saying that all discounts mean that that business running them are scammers. But, on the flip side, you do need to be careful when you come across discounts online, as they are what scammers will most often use.

If a site is running discounts that are more than 60%, then you should start to get skeptical of them, and ask a lot of questions: Who owns the store? Why are they running the discounts? Can you find these prices somewhere else.

Often-times, scammers will put up sites, like Ninebebot.store, and never really explain why they have discounts in the first place.

It’s generally through a site not saying why they have discounts that you can learn if a site is or isn’t legit. If they explain in detail as to why they are running the discount, then they have a higher chance of being legit.

But, as it is with Ninebebot.store – it doesn’t appear that they are very legit because of their low prices.

Footer Information

The Information In The Footer

Because of the discounts being promoted on Ninebebot.store, there is a very valid reason to question anything, and everything, that is said on their site. Which is why the footer information doesn’t quite make sense.

As you’ll notice in the screenshot above, they have written “Official Site – Hot 9.99 Sale“.

Two questions arise out of this info:

  1. What Official Store is Ninebebot.store?
  2. What exactly is their Hot 9.99 Sale?

If you were to look at the limited products that Ninebebot has, you’ll notice that only one of them was listed at $9.99 dollars.

So is that the ‘hot sale’ going on, or are all of them supposed to be that low? Also, they never specify what type of 9.99 it is money-wise. Is it in USD? AUD? Something completely different?

As for the whole “official shop” – our best guess is that they were going to pretend to impersonate someone else, but decided not to. Impersonating popular brands is what scammers will often do. Combine that with high discounts, and you’ll make quite a bit of money from that scam.

Can We Prove Ninebebot Is A Scam?

We haven’t really give much conclusive proof that this site is a scam, have we?

Well, we won’t beat around the bush any longer. We do have some pretty concrete proof that this site, and the owner behind it, are fraudulent.

Because we continued to check all the information on the site, we looked into their Contact Us page. And we found something rather interesting:

Fraudulent Email Address support@jdonline.info

As you can see above, they list their email address on their Contact Us page.

Nothing is strange about giving out your contact email. A lot of companies do it – how else are you going to let people know how they can contact you?

However, when we saw the email address, we recognized it immediately. We had actually seen it before, on numerous websites. Scam websites, we might add.

Other connected Scams with Support@jdonline.info

Above is a screenshot of many scams that the owner(s) of Ninebebot have been a part of. And that is just part of it. That screenshot came from one page out of five.

So, all in all, Ninebebot.store isn’t a site that we would recommend you use, or try to purchase something from. The owner of it is clearly a scam artist who knows what he’s doing.

Ninebebot Is A Scam!

There is really no denying it – Ninebebot is a scamming, fraudulent website. They are running discounts that are so low you have to question the legitimacy of them. They have a strange footer message. And on top of that they are connected with numerous other scams.

If you do choose to purchase from this site, you will be left with, well, nothing. More than likely, they won’t send anything to you, and you’ll be left with no money. And that’s not a fun thing, is it?

Let this be a lesson for you!

We’ve created a video course that helps clearly with this whole problem of getting scammed online. We go into some common tactics that scammers will often use on their site, as well as free resources to use for check out the legitimacy of a website.

Conbt.com Review: Is Conbt a fake Converse shop? (Yes, it is!)

Conbt.com Review: Is Conbt a fake Converse shop? (Yes, it is!)

We received a contact form request asking us about a site called Conbt.com and what we thought of it. When we took our initial look at it, we immediately surmised that it was a scam, because of the way the site was laid out (more details on that later).

Conbt.com is a site run by a scammer who has his hands deep into the whole scamming realm. We’ve run into him multiple times, and it doesn’t appear that he’s yet to give up his scamming ways.


Quick Review

  • Conbt is impersonating a legit brand name – Converse
  • Conbt is running low prices and discounts without explaining why
  • Conbt is connected with three email address that have been traced to other fraudulent websites

Conbt: The Fake Converse Shop

Fake Converse Shop

The very first thing that we find on the site is that Conbt is pretending to be Converse, a popular shoe brand that is now owned by Nike.

If you take a look at the above screenshot, you can see clearly that they are trying to pretend that they are Converse, since they show the logo, and the name right on the top of their site.

If a site ever claims to be a certain brand, and they don’t have the same domain as the brand (especially popular, well-known brands), then it is more than likely a scam.

And Conbt.com is no different.

Conbt is using Converse’s copyrighted images, as well as their logos to promote their scam. What their doing is illegal, immoral, and down right wrong.

But, being an impersonation website isn’t the only thing that shows them as being a scam.

The Heavily Discounted Prices

Discounts on Conbt

Sites that claim to have discounts should be ones that you are very skeptical of. You’ll notice on Conbt that they have many shoes marked down nearly 50%.

If a site doesn’t give a good reason as to why they have discounts, then it’s better to not give in to the urge to purchase whatever product you are look at.

Scammers love to use discounts and low prices to bring in traffic to their site. Many people will think, “It’s only $10, $20, $30 dollars that I’m going to lose if it is a scam. So what do I have to lose?”

Unfortunately, the reason why some of these scammers are still around is because of people who give up $30 dollars. Get 50 people to give up that much money in one scam, and the scammer already has $1500 just from that one website.

Now, don’t get us wrong. Just because a site has discounts on it doesn’t mean that it’s a scam. But what we are saying is that if they don’t give any good reason as to why they are selling products for such a low price, then they are best to be avoided.

Sites that have low prices are sites that you should make sure to look into and see if they are truly a scam (which is why you are here, right?)

Conbt Using The Same Theme As Other Scams

Conbt's website design

We know, it’s strange that we can tell whether a website is a scam by looking at its design. But it is actually partly true.

When we first looked at Conbt, we knew that it was a scam because of the way the scammer had made the site. Depending on how you viewed the site, you may (or may not) have noticed the gray side bars. A screenshot above helps show them.

We’ve looked into hundreds of sites, and have found several fraudulent ones that use the same exact theme as Conbt.
Now, you definitely do need to be careful judging a site by its design. But Conbt.com is a very unique design. We have yet to find any other legit site that has the same layout as theirs.

Make sure to take a look at our review of Porbc.com and Norkz.com. The images in those articles should help you see the similarities between them all.

Now, of course, we could just end the review here, because we know that this site is indeed a scam. However, just because we know with certainty that this site is a scam, doesn’t make it that the reader will be certain it’s a scam.

So do we have any proof that they are actually scamming people?

Yes, we do, in a round about way.

The Fraudulent Email Address

For whatever reason, this scammer loves to use the same email address over and over again. You can tell more about a site by the email they use than by nearly anything else on the actual site.

Fraudulent email Support@jdonline.info

If you go to Conbt and scroll all the way down to the footer, you’ll find three email addresses that the owner added. We have a screenshot of them above.

You’ll notice that in the screenshot, we’ve highlighted one of them, Support@jdonline.info.

We’ve come across that email address so many times, we honestly can’t count the number. But each time we have, we’ve only found one scam website after another.

Other Fraudulent Websites

As you can see above, that email address has been connected to dozens of fraudulent websites and scams. When it comes to scamming people, they definitely know what they are doing.

Interestingly enough, when we looked up the other two email address, we found that they also are connected with several other fraudulent websites as well.

In the end, all three email address say the same thing: Conbt is a scam, and one that you shouldn’t use or trust.

Conbt Is A Fake Converse Shop!

There really is no denying it – Conbt is a fake Converse store. They are using copyrighted logos and images, running sketchy discounts, and don’t appear to be afraid to put their fraudulent email addresses out on display for everyone to see.

All in all, Conbt is a site that we would highly recommend you don’t purchase from, nor trust the scammer behind it. You’ll only be left with headache and heartache.

SolfeMarket.com Review: Is SolfeMarket Legit? (Scam Alert!)

SolfeMarket.com Review: Is SolfeMarket Legit? (Scam Alert!)

You’re probably here wondering about SolfeMarket.com and whether they are legit. Well, we’re here to help bring clarity to this very issue. Unfortunately, this scammer has been doing this exact scam for a while.

Is SolfeMarket legit?

It definitely doesn’t appear to be so. We’ve checked it out, and from what we found, SolfeMarket isn’t a site that we would recommend you use. With privacy policy errors, sketchy discounts, and look-a-like sites, it’s best to steer clear from SolfeMarket.


Quick Review

  • Discounts are all the same, and all the products are for an extremely low price.
  • SolfeMarket’s Privacy Policy isn’t set up completely and has issues.
  • SolfeMarket lies about allowing PayPal, when in reality, they don’t allow it.
  • AllcaMarket (no longer online) was a site that almost exactly like SolfeMarket
  • Numerous other reviews suggest that other people have been scammed

Tired Of Finding Scam Websites?

We don’t blame you. They are a common problem, especially for those who keep getting scammed. If you are one of those people, we’ve created a video course that teaches you how to avoid that.


SolfeMarket.com’s Discounts

Most likely, you came to SolfeMarket because you saw that they seemed to have products on their site for a fairly low price. Well, as you know, looks can be deceiving.

Discounts for all products.

As you can see in the above screenshot, every single product that they have listed on their site is discounted down $20.05 dollars.

Not only that, but each product only costs $14.95!

Whether it’s a refrigerator or a tent, each one of these items are marked down to under $15 dollars. Which makes the whole site look pretty sketchy.

Sadly, many will fall for this trick that scammers use often. A scammer will make a site with high discounts, advertise it on a social media platform, and people will flock to it like ducks to water.

If a site has discounts, and each product is the same exact price as each other, then it is most definitely a scam. There shouldn’t even be a question about it being legitimate.

But that is not all that we found on this site either.

Privacy Policy Errors

When checking out whether a website is legit, it’s always best to see if the owners of the site set up their legal pages correctly.

Make sure to read their Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, and even Shipping Refunds and Returns. Because most likely, you’ll find something that will lead you to who the owners really are.

Privacy Policy Errors

If you take a look at the above image, you’ll notice that we highlighted some text in the screenshot. Each highlighted text starts with ‘INSERT’.

When the owner(s) set up SolfeMarket, they forgot to actually add all the relevant information into the Privacy Policy to make it authentic.

What you have on SolfeMarket.com is a default Privacy Policy that is given out to each site when it is created. And that default page needs to be updated and changed to fit the site’s rules.

If a site doesn’t have a Privacy Policy, or has one that isn’t set up properly, then it’s never a good idea to shop at or use that site.

So shopping at SolfeMarket is no different.

Because SolfeMarket doesn’t have a proper Privacy Policy, you really don’t know what exactly they’re going to keep when you use their site. You also don’t know how they’re going to keep it all safe.

SolfeMarket may decide that they want to keep all your information. Maybe they’re want to sell it to third parties. Maybe it’s something else entirely.

Whether or not SolfeMarket is doing or could do all those things isn’t the point. The point is that they have a very messed up Privacy Policy, and for that reason, it’s best to avoid using them.

No PayPal For Purchase?

They Claim They Allow PayPal

If you scroll all the way down to the bottom of SolfeMarket.com, you’ll find that they claim they have a secure checkout in place.

One of those ‘secure’ checkouts is through PayPal, or so they claim on their site.

This is, once again, a typical ploy used by scammers to get people to think they are legit. Because if a site is using PayPal, then they are usually authentic, right?

In all actuality, using or not using PayPal doesn’t really show anything about authenticity. But what does show a lack of authenticity is when a site claims they use something, but in reality don’t.

Scammers, for who knows why, will often put up that they allow purchases to be made through PayPal. But when you get to the actual page to purchase something, you find that this isn’t quite true.

No PayPal

As the screenshot above can show you, SolfeMarket doesn’t allow PayPal to make a purchase. We’re not going to say that this immediately makes them a scam, but it definitely adds to the weight of an argument for them being one.

If a site claims something, but then doesn’t actually allow that certain thing they claim, then it doesn’t bode well for anything else they claim.

Since SolfeMarket was wrong about PayPal, could it be possible that they are also wrong about the discounts they have? Could SolfeMarket be wrong about the very products that they advertise?

It’s entirely possible, assuming we follow the logic all the way through. If they are lying about one thing, then what else is SolfeMarket lying about?

Same Scam – Different Name
AllcaMarket.com's main page

We actually looked into a site very similar to SolfeMarket about two months ago. Though was called Allcamarket.com. Make sure to check out our review here.

The owner seems to have been running this scam for a while now, and doesn’t appear to be giving up on it anytime soon.

Sadly, it just means what none of us want to hear – humans will fall for the same scam over and over again without learning from their lesson.

Is SolfeMarket Legit?

SolfeMarket.com's main page

In the end, from what we’ve found on the site, it does appear to be that SolfeMarket is a scam and not legitimate.

They have the same exact discounts as did AllcaMarket.com (and the same design), and they don’t appear to have a proper Privacy Policy. On top of that, they are clearly lying on their site about using PayPal to make purchases.

But that isn’t all. There are dozens of reviews online that all say SolfeMarket is definitely a scam.

Reported Scams

In the end, SolfeMarket is best to be avoided, and not trusted. It will only bring about loss of money and headaches.

Walktrends.com Review: Is Walk Trends Legit? (No, Definitely Not!)

Walktrends.com Review: Is Walk Trends Legit? (No, Definitely Not!)

Walktrends.com came to us through our contact form as a request to take a look at. When we looked at it initially, we found several errors in the site the concluded to us that they were indeed a scam website.

Is Walk Trends Legit? Not from we saw on the site. In this article we’ll do our best to help show you just why we believe Walktrends.com isn’t an authentic shop, nor why they should be trusted. Hopefully this review will help you think twice before purchasing through stores like these.


Quick Review

  • Walktrends has some shady discounts on their site, as well as not explaining why everything is so heavily discounted
  • Walktrends has a Privacy Policy that isn’t updated correctly and has certain ‘default page’ issues
  • Walktrends looks exactly like 2-3 other sites – same images, same design, same contact info
  • Walktrends claims to have 24-hour customer service – as of this date, we have yet to hear from them (it’s been over a week…)

Tired Of Finding Scam Websites?

We don’t blame you. They are a common problem, especially for those who keep getting scammed. If you are one of those people, we’ve created a video course that teaches you how to avoid that.


Walktrends.com – The Discounts

WalkTrends.com's Main Page

When going to Walktrends.com, the site seems like a normal one. In their About Us page, they claim to be a leading store that offers discounts and lower prices. So much lower that they claim you can save 30%-70% of the retail cost.

However, when you take a close look at their discounts, and their products for that matter, you’ll notice a common theme. And that theme is that every single product they list is being sold for $12.95:

Prices all 12.95

We’ve seen this enough times to know that this is a scam. If a site has that many products on their store for that low of a price (and all the same price we might add), then it truly is a scam. There really is no need to investigate further about it.

You don’t purchase lawn-mowers, computer desks, or even beach chair sets for that low of a price.

This is just a common ploy by scammers to get traffic to their site. People see low prices, go to the scammer’s site, purchase something (because they think they are getting a good deal), and lose money over it.

Now, like we said, we could stop our review there, and say that the site is indeed a scam. But, just because we’re convinced that it’s a scam, doesn’t necessarily mean that you, the reader, are convinced. So, it’s on the next issue with the site.

Privacy Policy And Default Theme Issues

Privacy Policy Issues

Did you know that each online shop and store are required to have a Privacy Policy on their site? For them to operate correctly, a website needs to have some sort of page where they explain what info they collect, and how they keep your information private.

While Walktrends.com does have one on their site, we wouldn’t really call it authentic. If you notice in the screenshot above, you’ll find that we’ve highlighted several sentences in their Privacy Policy. Each sentence starts with ‘INSERT’.
What this means is that Walktrends.com just grabbed a default Privacy Policy, and never even updated it to their terms and agreements. Which means they never really set up their store, or their Privacy Policy, correctly.

Sites that have issues like this shouldn’t be trusted. If a site claims to have discounts, and claims to be a leading shop in the retail discount business, then they should have better site set up.

This is once again a common issue with scam websites. Since they are up one day and gone the next, they are often found with errors, like the ones above.

Additionally, their About Us Page can be found to have issues with it:

About Us Error

It appears that the owners forgot to completely set up their About Us Page as well, as you’ll notice in the screenshot above. Highlighted is the words ‘Store Name’, which is probably supposed to be changed to the actual store name.

But the way it is written is actually okay. Because it leads us to our next issue with Walktrends.com. And that is their ‘store name difference’.

Who Is Strectrend.com?

Strectrend.com's main page

Does the above image look familiar? It should, since it’s found on Walktrends.com’s site.

While searching around for Walk Trends contact info, Strectrend.com popped up saying that it was also located at the same exact location as Walk Trends:

Contact Info

So, why does Strectrend.com have literally the same exact website as Walktrends.com, but just with a ‘store name difference’ ?

We don’t know, but (as we’ve said before), this is common among scammers. To have several sites that look alike, and are running the same scam on them is pretty typical for a scam owner.

Redirnow's contact info

Additionally, there was another site that also claimed to be that exact location, though their site didn’t seem to want to load for us:So that is three sites that all claim to be at one location. When you see something like that, it usually means only one of them is telling the truth.

Is Their Support 24 hours?

According to Walk Trends contact info, they claim to have 24/7 support. They even give an email address to use in the case that you need to get a hold of them:

Walk Trends' Contact Info

We took the liberty of contacting them, and see how quick their service was. We contacted them all the way back on June 3rd, and we still haven’t received a reply from them, even though it’s been over 5 days since we sent the email:

No Response To Question

We asked a simple question, about PayPal, to see if they would respond. And they haven’t yet (so much for 24 hours service).

Now, some of you may think that this doesn’t matter, but it deeply matters, since their email is the only way that you can get a hold of them.

What happens if you decided to order something (even against everything we’ve shown above), and wanted to get in touch with them? Maybe the order didn’t come, or you wanted a refund? The only way to contact them is through their email address, and they don’t appear to be answering that.

Is Walk Trends Legit?

In a short answer, no, Walktrends.com doesn’t appear to be legit. They are running a site that doesn’t have a very clear Privacy Policy, that has discounts which are typical for a scammer-run website, and several other sites look just like them (and have the exact errors they do!).

WalkTrends.com also doesn’t answer their emails, nor gives reasons why they share a location with two other sites. In the end, Walk Trends isn’t a site that we wouldn’t recommend ordering from.

TheDollarPay.com (Honest Review): Why Is The Dollar Pay A Scam?

TheDollarPay.com (Honest Review): Why Is The Dollar Pay A Scam?

What does a review of Job.TheDollarPay.com and a review of DataEntry.TheDollarPay.com have in common? They are both scam websites.

Not only that, but these sites are subdomains 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.

(NOTE: The screenshots were taken from several different sites that also have the same exact scam on it.)


Quick Review

  • They don’t have any Data Entry work for you to actually do
  • They are using fake testimonials/images/names on their site
  • Even if you make enough money to get paid out, they will never pay you

The Dollar Pay isn’t going to pay you. They are a scam website and one that you shouldn’t be working for. Instead of working for them, click the link below to read about our recommended program for making money online!


What Do The Sites Claim To Give You?

TakingWork.com's Main Page

As you can see from the screenshot above, TheDollarPay.com, along with the rest of the subdomains, 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 TheDollarPay.com is claiming that you can make $1 dollar per line of data entry!

What You Get Paid For

As you can see from the above screenshot, TheDollarPay.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?

And On top of that, 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 subdomains, Job.TheDollarPay.com and DataEntry.TheDollarPay.com all had the same exact testimonials. And on top of that, they were found to be faked!

The Faked Testimonials!

Fake Testimonials

If you scroll down to the middle of one of the subdomains, 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 Images

All the above is to show that TheDollarPay.com and other sites like it 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 TheDollarPay.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 TheDollarPay.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, TheDollarPay.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 Captcha

You 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.

TheDollarPay.com Is A Scam!

Don’t be fooled! Job.TheDollarPay.com is a scam, as well as DataEntry.TheDollarPay.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.

(Scam Alert!) DataEntry.PayOrignal.com And Job.PayOrignal.com Review

(Scam Alert!) DataEntry.PayOrignal.com And Job.PayOrignal.com Review

What does a review of Job.PayOrignal.com and a review of DataEntry.PayOrignal.com have in common? They are both scam websites.
Not only that, but these sites are subdomains 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.

(NOTE: The screenshots were taken from several different sites that also have the same exact scam on it.)


Quick Review

  • They don’t have any Data Entry work for you to actually do
  • They are using fake testimonials/images/names on their site
  • Even if you make enough money to get paid out, they will never pay you

Pay Orignal isn’t going to pay you. They are a scam website and one that you shouldn’t be working for. Instead of working for them, click the link below to read about our recommended program for making money online!


What Do The Sites Claim To Give You?

TakingWork.com's Main Page

As you can see from the screenshot above, PayOrignal.com, along with the rest of the subdomains, 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 PayOrignal.com is claiming that you can make $1 dollar per line of data entry!

What You Get Paid For

As you can see from the above screenshot, PayOrignal.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?

And On top of that, 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 subdomains, Job.PayOrignal.com and DataEntry.PayOrignal.com all had the same exact testimonials. And on top of that, they were found to be faked!

The Faked Testimonials!

Fake Testimonials

If you scroll down to the middle of one of the subdomains, 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 Images

All the above is to show that PayOrignal.com and other sites like it 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 PayOrignal.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 PayOrignal.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, PayOrignal.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:

What does a review of work.Earnshot.com, a review of task.Earnshot.com, a review of job.Earnshot.com, a review of start.Earnshot.com, and a review of dataentry.Earnshot.com have in common? They are all scam websites.

Kapitalboardsshop.com Review: Is Kapital Board Shop A Scam?

Kapitalboardsshop.com Review: Is Kapital Board Shop A Scam?

Everyone loves free products, don’t they? That must be why these websites are so popular. Kapitalboardingshop.com claims to give away all their products for free, as long as you pay for shipping. It seems like a pretty sweet deal. But, as always, things that seem too good to be true usually turn out to be a scam.

So, the question then comes up, is Kapital Boards Shop a scam? And if it is, how can we tell, before we actually make a purchase from it?

Those are the questions that we are looking forward to answering in this review. Hopefully by the end of it, you’ll be able to look for clues that may lead to revealing whether a shop truly is a scamming website.


Quick Review

  • They claim to have a 24-hour sale that has lasted longer than 24-hours.
  • They don’t have a Privacy Policy.
  • The email address they give isn’t actually a valid email address.
  • The images are all named “Screenshot”, which makes the site look sketchy.
  • We’ve seen this type of scam before.

Kapitalboardsshop.com’s 24-hour Sale

Kapital Boards Shop's main page

For those of you who don’t know, we’ve seen a lot of new shops come out that claim to have a 24-hour sale. They have all advertised that their products are free, and they have all turned out to be a scam.

We looked into Kapitalboardsshop.com two days ago, and their shop was exactly the same – with the same 24-hour sale! It’s just an unfortunate ploy to get people to their store, and get someone to purchase something.

As we’ve said in other articles, not every site giving away products are a scam. There are some that are legit. Most of those are startup company’s that are trying to promote themselves and get their name, and product, out into the hands of as many people as they can.

Usually, when a company does this, they tack on a larger shipping fee per item – we’ll look later on and see that Kapital Boards Shop doesn’t do this.

In any case, Kapitalboardsshop.com hasn’t taken down their 24-hour site, even though it’s been over 48-hours after they’ve originally put it up. Which means that they’re not really telling the truth (and if they’re lying about the 24-hour sale, then what else are they lying about?)

Lack Of Privacy Policy, Contact and About Page

If you scroll down to the bottom of Kapitalboardsshop.com’s site, you’ll notice that they only have one legal page – Terms and Conditions.
They don’t have an About Us page, a Contact page, or even a Privacy Policy page. Having these types of pages can help make a site look more authentic and legit. Besides for a Privacy Policy, the other two pages mentioned don’t exactly need to be on a site, though its helpful to add them.

180 days you may have to wait

The only thing they do have is a Terms and Conditions page. And those terms are pretty strange:

In the screenshot above, you’ll notice the number 180. What they are saying on their site is that you may need to wait up to 180 days to get your product!

We’ve never seen anything like this on a legit site. On top of that, even if this is legit, you then have little hope in opening a dispute if your purchase comes incomplete or broken. Usually after a certain amount time (way before 180 days), transaction payments can’t be disputed.

But that isn’t all that’s found in the Terms and Conditions:

Email Address In The Terms
Not A Valid Email Address

They list an email address you can use to email, in the case that you want to ask a question. So, we decided to do just that. And within a minute or two, we got a reply, though it wasn’t exactly the one we were looking for:The email service provider that we use sent us a message saying that that email address isn’t valid – there is no email for kapitalboards(@)mail.com.

So, the email address that they have on their site, the only way you can contact them, appears to not even work! If something happens to your product, or if you have a question about something, how are you going to be able to contact them?

So, not only is Kapitalboardsshop.com lying about their 24-hour sale, but they are also putting down a false email address as well. Maybe everything isn’t as legit as it seems?

How Many Products Can We Order?

It says in the Terms and Conditions that they will only ship 1 free item. However, that didn’t seem like the case when we tried to add a bulk order to our cart.

1 Million Long Boards

It seems like they have 1 million of these $300 dollar long boards in stock. And they are going to ship it to us at the price of $14.97? Isn’t Kapital Boards Shop a great place to get free stuff from?

Is Kapital Boards Shop A Scam?

Obviously, this site is a joke. They don’t have a Privacy Policy, they are lying about their 24-hour sale, and they have some bizarre Terms and Conditions.

We received a message about this site from someone, and they had also done some ‘investigative’ work into Kapital Boards Shop, which we’ll outline below.

When you look into the source code of Kapital Boards Shop, you’ll notice that the images are named ‘****Screen_Shot****‘. The screenshot below helps point it out:

Screenshots of the images

What this means is that the images on Kapital Boards Shop aren’t the original images. The scammers behind Kapital Boards Shop took them from another store.

Searching around the internet, you can find most of the images on a site called Tactics.com, a legit site that sells various different products. And it appears that the majority of the text on Kapital Boards Shop was also taken from Tactics.com as well.

In the end, Kapital Boards Shop isn’t a site that we would recommend you shopping at. It will only lead to loss of money, credit card theft, and a whole lot of other headaches. Avoid them, and you’ll avoid several more problems in your life.

StrikeoutStore.com Review: Strikeout Store Stuck Out (Too Many Scam Warnings)!

StrikeoutStore.com Review: Strikeout Store Stuck Out (Too Many Scam Warnings)!

Facebook ads seem to be laughable now-a-days. Over the last few months we have received a lot of requests from sites that people saw through some sort of social media ad. And the majority of them appeared to be fraudulent.

Is StrikeOut Store a scam? That’s just what we’re hoping to help clarify in this article. With all the scam warnings that we found on the site, it does appear to be not as legit as it seems. It’s our hope that at the end of this article, you’ll have picked up some ideas on just how to spot an online fraudulent website.


Quick Review

  • They claim to have a 24-hour sale that has lasted longer than 24-hours.
  • They Privacy Policy errors and issues.
  • They were only created a week before this review was published.
  • Even if you order a large number of products, the shipping charge stays the same.
  • We’ve seen this type of scam before.

What Is StrikeoutStore.com?

StrikeoutStore.com's review

Strikeout Store is a site that sells baseball shirts from a bunch of different teams. White Socks, Red Socks, Yankees. You name it, they probably appear to have it.

However, the strange thing is that they aren’t exactly selling anything on their site. They appear to be giving away all of their products – free of charge!

Okay, so nothing is really free, right? There is a shipping charge that they tack on. But beyond that, the site makes it appear that everything is indeed free to purchase.

But is this really true?
Well, sadly, for all you baseball fans, it isn’t legit at all.

Flash Sales Could Mean Scam Sales…

Flash-Sale

Here’s the thing with the above screenshot. They claim that it ends at 12AM Eastern time, and that it is a 24-hour flash sale for these free items.

But, you see, we’ve seen this type of scam before being actively promoted through Facebook ads. Check out our review of CatsNKitties, and OnNobleSportsStore, to see just what we mean. It appears that these scammers are doing their same scam over and over again, just by changing up what they’re ‘giving away for free’.

Also, you’ll probably be reading this after 24-hours, and the sale will still have been going on. Our guess is that this 24-hour sale has been going on since earlier last week.

When we looked up just when the domain was registered (StrikeoutStore.com), we found that they were created just over a week ago:

Whois Information For StrikeoutStore.com

So, more than likely, they’ve been doing this for a while now. And sadly, there isn’t much we can do to stop them. People have tried letting Facebook know about the previous sites, but they don’t appear to be doing anything. The only thing we can really do is, well, write reviews of sites that are scams, and let others know about these fraudulent websites.

Privacy Policy Errors That Constantly Show up…

Privacy Policy Errors

As you can see from the above screenshot, we’ve highlighted a few places where the Privacy Policy just wasn’t set up correctly. We believe that the site used a default template that is supposed to be filled in, but Strikeout Store never actually did any of that ‘filling in’.

This doesn’t exactly mean that it’s a scam, but it does make it look like a pretty unrealistic website. The Privacy Policy is an important aspect of a site, and if a store can’t get that right, then it probably doesn’t deserve to be shopped at.

If we had to choose whether to shop at a site that had these errors, we would immediately choose not to. There just isn’t enough trustworthiness from this Privacy Policy to make us want to actually believe that they are a legit site.
In the end, if you ever find a site that doesn’t have their Privacy Policy set up correctly, or on that is keeping/selling too much of your data, then it is highly recommended to not use the site, nor purchase from their online stores.

The Shipping Charge Never Changes…

Shipping Charge For One Item

Sometimes, in a way to promote a newly established business, sites will give away things for free, but then they tack on a larger shipping charge per item, and not per order. So, just because something claims to be free on the internet doesn’t immediately mean that it’s a scam.

In the screenshot above, you will notice that we added one shirt to our cart. They gave us a $14.49 shipping cost for that one item.
We decided to check and see whether that shipping charge would change per item, or per order. Since the shirts were ‘free’, we added 1000 shirts to our cart, to see how much our shipping cost would be. The answer? $14.49.

1000 shirts for only $14.49

If this was a legit company, this would definitely not be what would happen. They would never give away 1000 shirts for only $14.49. We’re not even sure if you could ship that many shirts with that small of an amount for shipping!

Is Strikeout Store A Scam?

It does appear that Strikeout Store is indeed a scam. It appears like it is the same scammers that have been doing this for a while now, and are unfortunately getting people to fall for it each time.

The Privacy Policy isn’t set up correctly, and they are giving away too many products for too small a shipping charge to be legit. Overall, it’s definitely a site that we would recommend everyone to steer clear from and avoid.

Also, in the case that you came to this article after you ordered from StrikeoutStore.com, we would highly recommend that you cancel your credit card, since comments that we received from the other sites claimed that their credit card info was copied and used by someone else.

(Note: We can’t be certain this site is also copying credit card info, but with the nature of how they are set up, and how similar it is to the other sites we’ve reviewed, it’s always better to be safe than sorry).

GirlishAvenue.com Review: Everything Is Free Or Is It A Scam?

GirlishAvenue.com Review: Everything Is Free Or Is It A Scam?

GirlishAvenue.com is a site that came to us recently through our contact from. Recently we’ve written about sites that claim to have everything for free, you just need to pay for shipping, similar to what GirlishAvenue.com is doing.

Unfortunately, those sites that we took a look at were found to be fraudulent websites. And so, because of that, GirlishAvenue.com could also appear to be under the same scam. Our hope is that from the evidence we present in this article, you as the reader can decide for yourself whether they are just that – a scam.


Quick Review

  • They claim to have a 24-hour sale that has lasted longer than 24-hours.
  • They Privacy Policy errors and issues.
  • We’ve emailed them, and they haven’t responded yet.
  • They aren’t listed on the BBB, even though they claim they are.
  • We’ve seen this type of scam before.

Is Anything Wrong With Free Products?

Free Products

It does need to be said that nothing is wrong with free products. They are in fact part of advertising a site. For example, sometimes a site will give things away for ‘free’ but tack on a larger shipping fee, to help cover their costs. They do this so that they can get their business name out there much quicker.

Most people won’t realize that they’re probably getting the product at the same price with the higher shipping fee, since they thought that the product was ‘free’ (it works similarly to why companies will sell things for $29.99 instead of $30.)

So, we can’t immediately discount Girlish Avenue’s free products because of them being, well, free. This could be a potential advertising scheme in which Girlish Avenue is just trying to get their name out there.

Now, what exactly did we find wrong with Girlish Avenue?

Privacy Policy Errors

Privacy Policy Errors

As you can see from the screenshot above, it doesn’t appear that Girlish Avenue’s Privacy Policy was completely set up. It still has places where the owner is supposed to ‘insert’ more information.

A Privacy Policy page on a website is all about what exactly they take from you (i.e. data), and how they keep it safe, and/or whether they use it/sell it.

Now, we’ve found some sites that have said they were going to sell and use the data that is on the site, though that isn’t typical. What is more typical is a site that says they won’t sell your data, and won’t keep the majority of it.

But with Girlish Avenue, you don’t even know what they are going to be keeping or sharing, since they haven’t specified in their Privacy Policy!

This means, for all we know, they could be keep your credit card and billing info, and use it for whatever they want. Hypothetically, under their Privacy Policy, they could be selling your info, and you would be ‘technically’ agreeing to it, if you chose to shop here!

(Okay, so it is illegal to sell credit-card info – if they are doing that, then they’re doing something wrong. Our point is that since they don’t exactly spell out what is in their Privacy Policy, and if you did agree to it, they have a lot of ‘play’ as to what the Privacy Policy says).

If we went to shop at a site like Girlish Avenue, and found the Privacy Policy the way that it is, we wouldn’t shop at it. Why? Because we just don’t know what they are doing with our data.

It’s not that we would immediately think that Girlish Avenue is a scam. But without a proper Privacy Policy, there isn’t a lot of trust on their end as to what they are doing with anyone’s data, which is never good.

Faulty Email And Customer Service

Girlish Avenue's Email Address

On their ‘important’ pages, Girlish Avenue lists an email to use in the case you need to contact them. GirlishAvenueStaff@gmail.com.
Nothing is overly wrong with using a free email, like Gmail. And it’s good that they had the beginning of the email sound similar to their site (some sites don’t do that.)
But what’s not nice is when you email them, and they don’t respond. That doesn’t look good for your business or for missing products (if you had any.)

We emailed them three days ago (as of writing this), asking whether or not everything was free. We thought it was a legitimate question and one that would be answered quickly.

Email That We Sent

So far, we haven’t actually received anything from them. No answer and no response.
So, what happens if we order something, and then don’t get a tracking number? Or if our product is damaged and we want a refund? Are they going to reply in that situation?

Customer service should be quick and efficient. If they don’t respond within 24-hours (unless they say explicitly that they may take a few days), then they’re not running a very good business.

Yes, there will be times when things come up, and you can’t get a response as immediately as you want. But we have to wait three days (and counting)? That’s just a turn off for us, if we had to choose to shop at Girlish Avenue.

BBB Accredited Or Not?

BBB Accredited?

As you can see from the above screenshot, Girlish Avenue claims to be an Accredited Business with the BBB (Better Business Bureau).
However, this is completely false. We can’t find them anywhere on the BBB’s website, must less on the web! If they were BBB Accredited, you would think that other business would have spoken about them somewhere.

Additionally, Girlish Avenue claims to be PayPal verified. While this may be true, why don’t they then allow purchases to be made through PayPal?

Many times, scammers will have been banned from PayPal, and no longer allow it on their site (like, for example, Girlish Avenue). So to say that Girlish Avenue is PayPal verified, but not using PayPal is sort of strange.

And on top of all this, the total shipping charge doesn’t seem to change.

If this were a legit company, and if they were just trying to advertise their business through ‘free’ products, the shipping charge would be per item, and not per purchase.
We ‘ordered’ one item, and found that the shipping cost was $13.98. As you can see from the above screenshot, after we added a second thing to our cart, the shipping still stayed at $13.98.

So there is very little doubt within our mind that this site is clearly not telling the whole truth about themselves.

Is Girlish Avenue A Scam?

Girlish Avenue's Main Page

In our humble opinion, this site does appear to be a scam. Privacy Policy errors, Customer Service issues, and false accreditation claims all lead to us concluding that Girlish Avenue doesn’t appear to be as legit as they seem.

Additionally, if you do enough searching around online, it does appear that there are some negative reviews about Girlish Avenue. Some people claim that they were scammed out of their money by them.

We can’t verify this, but it does add in some way to the weight of our conclusion.
Hopefully, through this article, you, the reader, have been able to decide just what your thoughts are on Girlish Avenue. And hopefully the decision doesn’t leave you scammed.
