Oh I have to blog about this one because whenever I see sites like this out there, it makes me cringe…
Have a look at this site (url blacked out for his sake):
Look at that! Doesn’t it just look so ehhhh… ‘scammy’?
Disclaimer! I did not say it was a scam. I just said it looks ‘scammy’
Ok let’s carry on shall we?
As you scroll down and read this salesletter, it blabs about how easy it is to make money online, it guarantees you $15,000 in two weeks, how this guy just bought a new car, and all that flash and bang, blah blah blah!
And then he shows you the “proof”!
Ok. Couple of things wrong with this screenshot.
No. 1 is that under his Daily Sales, his Day, Dates, Sales and Rows are NOT in line. It’s jagged all over! If you have a Clickbank account (go take a look), you know that everything is nicely aligned.
So what is this guy up to?
Either he has a very unique Clickbank account or he’s doing some very awful cutting and pasting.
No. 2 is his Clickbank nickname which is Nic. At first glance, there doesn’t seem much wrong with that. But there is.
Clickbank requires that your nickname must be between 5-10 digits long! Take a look at the Clickbank signup page:
Either this guy has a very unique Clickbank account or he’s doing something ‘creative’ (and being bad at math at the same time.)
Next. You scroll down and he shows you more “proof”:
This one’s hard to spot to. I compared it to the cheques I got and everything looks good. But the giveaway again with this cheque is the Clickbank nickname: Nic
If Clickbank doesn’t allow 3 letter nicknames, there’s no way you can receive a cheque like this.
The only way I can be wrong here is that maybe Clickbank used to accept shorter nicknames (I wouldn’t know because I wasn’t there from the start) but I could safely assume that’s unlikely.
Ok, you scroll down somemore and he tells you how easy it is, guarantees you make at least $10,000/month, you only need 15 mins to do this (I shit longer than that and he’s telling me I can make 5 digits in 15 mins), shows you a bunch of “testimonials”, etc…
And so you get to the end and you see the order button. Except that this order button is an affiliate link! This guy doesn’t even have a damn product! He’s just sending you to another salesletter to buy something else so he can get the commissions.
You look at the footer and you see even MORE affiliate links to other products. We all know that in a REAL salesletter, you do not have any affiliate links at all. Because you want to sell your own product and not have visitors clicking away somewhere else.
But since this joker has no product at all, he might as well just add a few more affiliate links and see if that captures some sales.
And oh ya, he has that web counter (the black circles with numbers inside) there as well. How silly is that?
I’m amazed at how some people can just dare to put up such crap online and make money off people like this! It’s sad. And it gives a bad name to internet marketing.
There’re lots of quality products on the internet and it’s people and websites like this that just smear the whole thing for us. I have some friends who really think that internet marketing isn’t for real and that’s all scammy. All thanks to idiots like this.
Ok and the last part that’s gonna get this bozo into trouble…
This is his header graphic:
Nothing fancy. but it looks vaguely (or very) similar to this:
This is the old header graphic for Ewen Chia’s Secret Affiliate Weapon.
Does this guys have the balls to rip off a big name or what? He didn’t just copy the header, he swiped the background (the blue stripes behind) as well! He must be an idiot. Maybe Ewen will sue him for fun…
Oh! And by the way, this is “Nic”
Oh that was mean… because that may not be the real Nic at all and he just swiped some guy’s photo to stick on his site.
But anyway, this is irrefutable PROOF that stupid people still exist on this fine earth. No wonder the aliens still wanna avoid us.
