Scam – Validate Your Internet Listing Yellow PagesUSA (Yellow Pages USA)

Posted by Mr Spamalicious | Posted in Buyer Beware Spam - Email Come Ons for Vague Products and Services, Miscellaneous Spam - Spam That Defies Categorization | Posted on 12-18-2010

Made to look like an invoice for a service you already have, Yellow PagesUSA (Yellow Pages USA ) has been scamming people for years. If you get this, you don’t really have a listing with them to renew, and you wouldn’t want to if you did. Desperate attempt to make you think they are the same company that distributes the big yellow book to your house. Expensive and useless. Avoid at costs. I also recommend not paying for any internet “yellow” listing regardless of the company. The business model is a dinosaur that is dying off fast. It was barely relevant ten years ago and even less so  now. Promote your business through a Google Places listing, a Yelp! business profile, Facebook page, Craigslist or your own website instead. Here’s the PDF invoice they send out.

Dear Customer:

Please verify your ACTUAL LISTING by printing and completing the attached form.

FAX THE COMPLETED FORM TO: 843-282-0035
Please make payment by check or credit card as listed on the form.

Return the stub and payment to the following address.

I’ve gotten so much spam from SwipeBids. This tells me one thing. There are scum and their company is a scam. No legitimate business does this. Then when you try to leave the site they slam you with pop ups with confusing messages on how to close them. If you click on unsubscribe, your email isn’t pre-filled in the form, which means they have no idea who they are spamming. YOU have to fill in your email for yourself. Plus most of their spam comes from spoofed accounts with long crazy URLs for their hyperlinks which means they probably have an affiliate network of losers pushing this shit out. Fuck Swipe Bids and or Swipe Auctions.

Etablettesting.com Scam – Sell Out Your Friends For a Chance to Become an iPad or Kindle Tester

0

Posted by Mr Spamalicious | Posted in Buyer Beware Spam - Email Come Ons for Vague Products and Services | Posted on 09-16-2010

Which of your friends are stupid, greedy, and selfish? If you get one of these scams you’ll know who. The scam is simple. You will never get a free kindle or Ipad…ever. However, in your attempt to qualify as a tester you MUST give them access to your social networking profiles or address book so they can send the same offer to everyone else. So basically your friend is selling you out for “chance” to get a free iPad. This company is so sketchy (etablettesting.com) that in the two times I’ve clicked on the email,they’ve completely changed their website twice. How pathetic.

This was sooo funny. I get an email asking to buy a Pop Corn popper. Obviously as scam. Most likely involving fake or stolen credit cards. So I decided to have a little fun. My responses are in RED. Not only does the Frozen Ham machine not phase him, he’s willing to pay full price!

—————————————————————

So sorry Mark,

I just checked my inventory and the last PopMaster X has already been committed to another buyer and the Pop-O-Matic 2000 is our last floor model. New shipments will arrive in two weeks. However we do have a refurbished frozen ham machine for only $850 (they normally sell for $1,250). If your church group likes pop corn they will probably like frozen ham as well. It’s a new treat that’s becoming very popular. The machine freezes a full size ham and then you connect the ham to a device that runs it through a shredder. It’s just like Hawaiian Shaved ice except it’s ham. Kit comes with 12 flavors of syrup and 24 boxes of cups as well to get you started.

Let me know if you’d like to proceed with this order instead.

Thanks,

Clay
