Ever been curious about what those ONLINE Get Rich Kits are about?
Here's a review:
Profit System Online, Online Revenue Solution, Paid Surveys Etc, and of course, the so-called NEWS1 or NEWS10, also NEWS(etc no.) Report (I'm doubtful if any of them are real).
A lot of people kept sending these (or is a virus and adware sending?)
To start with, I DID purchase a Kit from them. It's the 1st time I purchased anything online so you can imagine my excitement. They even used a reputable bank to scam people
It was a bitter lesson about trusting online...
It started easily enough. I got sent an email about "THE LOCAL MOM", stated its from NEWS1 (also News(etc no.) they kept changing!)
It led me to paidsurveysetc.com of Michelle McAllister. They posted warnings about how this isn't for you if you don't have internet, if you don't have time to complete surveys, etc. At that time, I recently started using the internet stick that a friend sent, so I said, "This sounds ok. I have time (working parttime as tutor and studying but still have time to answer QUICK surveys), I have internet, I didn't have spamguard on, I also have my card." The bank seems reputable. Even my card company agreed that the bank is "legit."
So I sent for the kit.
What I got was a webpage with lists of so-called Survey Sites
I didn't mind, thinking it's still OK
They even listed countries. I checked to see if there's any for the Philippines and I found none so I started with those that said "International". I got to one site but after I answered their questions, they immediately redirected me to another, adding they don't have offers available for my area at the moment, would I mind being redirected, etc
Suddenly, my computer crashed
I found out they have all sorts of virus, adware, malware, phishing, etc.
I installed my OS on my 2nd hardware, used a stronger antivirus, let it scan my computer & there they are
I lost a lot of information (my files!) but I didn't connect it with the online scams yet.
At that time, my concern was how to go to that webpage again. Coz, of course, they sounded legit. And my internet still worked, I have time (am recovering my software but still...) &, of course, I'm eager to get what I paid... So I went back to my inbox (good thing i didn't delete!)
I got scared when i tried to find the webpage and couldn't
I found myself having to rethink because I couldn't sign-in, my password doesn't work and I'm out of $34 (equivalent to Php1534 charged to my credit card, which is a lot, considering that I'm still studying, work part time and has credit card bills to pay)
I researched for the first time and found a site:
I found out that paidsurveysetc, profitsystemonline and onlinerevenuesolutions all lead to the same pages with paidsurveysetc payable through the bank in NOTE2
and the other 2 payable through Secure Payment Website.
They also have the same offers ($34, $49, $179), their testimonials don't change though the dates do & you can't leave a comment.
When I asked for the list again, they said they don't have it.
When I asked for a refund, they said i'm not part of their system.
I called my credit card company to request for a reversal of charges so now I sent a dispute letter. Hopefully, those fraudulent companies' online banks will HELP but what can they really do?
So what does it mean? They trick you into joining, made you confused about WHICH one EXACTLY sold you the kit, then they will all brush you off and say YOU are not part of their SYSTEM...
