    Selling scams - behind the scenes - Part 3

    The magical money-saving boxes and other products that you see advertised may contain TrustPilot reviews and Facebook-like posts recommending the product. These reviews and posts can be fictitious, also the site advertising them may benefit financially from your purchase/interest.

    The following is from the Top Gadget Trending website:

    'MARKETING DISCLOSURE: This website is a market place. As such you should know that the owner has a monetary connection to the product and services advertised on the site. The owner receives payment whenever a qualified lead is referred but that is the extent of it.

    ADVERTISING DISCLOSURE: This website and the products & services referred to on the site are advertising marketplaces. This website is an advertisement and not a news publication. Any photographs of persons used on this site are models. The owner of this site and of the products and services referred to on this site only provides a service where consumers can obtain and compare.'

    Remember, the only thing magical about these devices, is that they get people to part with their money.

Scams of any type.

Post scams of any type. If it is not from personal experience, check its veracity if you can; Snopes.com is a good reference. I shall be posting IT scams as I become aware of them, and you of course, can do the same.
