Those funny blood-sucking scammers

Since almost becoming a victim of one, I’ve gotten very interested in web scammers.  These are people who put up websites whose secondary purpose is plugging dubious products, and whose main purpose is fraud and theft.

I started posting about web scams in my regular blog; the topic became so engrossing (to me, anyway) that it was a distraction from what I usually write about.  So I’m shifting web scamming to its own blog, and this is it!

Why?

Entertainment: The earnest fantasies that web scammers spin are hilarious.  And their devious machinations show lots of talent and effort, making me wonder why they don’t just get jobs.  Laughing at them throws sunlight on them, drying up their slimy schemes.

Someone has to do it: The Better Business Bureau is mired in the 20th century.  Credit card issuers eat reversed charges, having learned the futility of pursuing nomadic and offshore operations.  The feds have bigger fish to fry.  And Amazon has lulled consumers into supposing that all web stores are honest, reliable businesses.  A few bloggers are doing what they can to warn people.  And that may be the most we can realistically accomplish.

I hope you’ll enjoy and benefit from this blog.  Please reply with your experiences, corrections and ideas.

Call to action

  • If you have a blog or a web page, it would be a public service if you would include links to posts I’ve made.  Together we can “google-bomb” the scammers by positioning honest information higher in Google search results than their fake reviews.
  • Send me a link to your blog about scamming, and I’ll include it here.
  • If you bought something from a scammer and you don’t want it, give that purchase some purpose.  Send it to me!  I’ll review it (but I’m not promising to test stuff that’s too sketchy or scary) and write about it to warn others.

8/31/16 Update:  When I set up this blog, I copied over my posts about the LUX HD450 phone lens scam and removed the links to the scam site.  And I wrote additional posts without scam site links.  Since then I’ve noticed that the same posts with scam site links get 40 times the readership as posts without links.  I’m guessing that this reflects something Google is doing to prioritize search results.  To reach and warn more people, I’m going to add links to scam sites.  I’ll color them red; click at your peril!

Toyed with by Ultrabeam Lasers (2018)

January 15, 2018; What has changed since I wrote about this outfit last year?  There may be nothing illegal or wrong with the following business practices. But they suggest that the seller is not to be trusted. I’m using my Scam-O-Meter scoring system; -1 means true (bad), +1 means false (good), and 0 means undetermined. I penalize the seller for statements made by shills.  Ultrabeam doesn’t provide any contact information.

Web site: Official Tactical Kit

Reviewer JenniferRein84 offers this contact information:

Official Survival Kit
1780 w 9000 so suite 111
West Jordan 84088
Phone: 844-381-6663

I’m not sure whether she’s talking about the same “Ultrabeam” seller.  When I reviewed the product last year the company was located in New York.

Ridiculous claims: -1

  • Navy Seal tested survival laser
  • Light matches” — or you could strike them on something
  • Blind an attacker;” possibly, if he cooperates
  • 75% discount, a percentage that scammers quite like to claim

Suspicious location: -1.  The web site doesn’t disclose Ultrabeam’s location.  So I present the Carmen Sandiego “Where In The World?” award.  Last year they were located in New York City (If it’s the same outfit?).

Onerous terms: 0.  The terms of service aren’t disclosed.

Ads, spam, robocalls: 0.  The privacy policy isn’t disclosed.

Lying and deception: +1.  None found; just some stretchers.

Obfuscation: -1.  How powerful is the laser?  “Blind an attacker,” “Max legal wattage,” and “Survival laser” imply that you could use this laser as a weapon.  What the law says is that it’s legal to own a laser of any power.  It’s illegal for the manufacturer to call a laser more powerful than 5 mV a “laser pointer.”  Since Ultrabeam doesn’t call this device a pointer, “max legal wattage” doesn’t mean anything.  Shill Nation Life lists its power as 100 mV.  So, best not used as a pointer, if at all.

Phony reviews: -1.  Shill Nation Life reviews this laser, using the seller’s images and providing copious links to … something.  Each time I clicked on one it tried to install something on my computer.  Doesn’t look good.  Tactical Pros sings, “Ever since I bought the Ultrabeam Survival Laser, I feel like I am ready for any survival situation and I know that when the time comes protecting and taking care my family will be very easy.

Crummy product: 0.  Unknown.

Overpriced: -1.  Ultrabeam prices one laser at $54.  Amazon offers a similar laser for $18.  I found a similar “match-burning” laser on Alibaba for as little as $3.90 for 50 units.

Bad service: 0.  Unknown.

Total score; -4

Unauthorized charges: I found no reports of this.  Ultrabeam accepts Pay-Pal.

What changed since last year:  They’re now hiding their location.  And they raised their price for one laser from $49 to $54.

Conclusion: I doubt that a small laser would help you survive.  But it might be fun to tease your cat and show off to your buddies.  Buy one on Amazon.

There may be nothing illegal or wrong with the following business practices. But they suggest that the seller is not to be trusted.

phone: 1 (415) 422-9366

hqSuspicious location: -1.  The address above is a real building.  But according to Ripoff Report it’s also used by known scammer ClearSight Glasses.

Onerous terms: 0.  The terms are modest compared to those of some sellers.  However, they don’t guarantee that the antenna’s quality will meet your expectations; nor that anything they say is true.

Ads, spam, robocalls: +1.  You can opt into receiving advertising, and opt out.

Lying and deception: -1.  Up to 50 mile range …”  ChannelMaster’s antenna selection guide lists the range of a “FLATenna” as 35 miles.

Obfuscation: -1.  When I move my mouse out of the page, a coupon with a countdown timer appears.  Better hurry!

Crummy product: 0.  Unknown.

Overpriced: -1.  ClearView is asking $40 for one antenna.  Amazon carries a similar antenna for $10, listing its range as 35 miles.  You can buy 100 window antennae on AliBaba for as little as $2 each.

Bad service: 0.  I found some complaints of this.

Total score; -5

Unauthorized charges: The Better Business Bureau rates ClearView HDTV Antenna “F” with six complaints, tho most of them were resolved.  ClearView doesn’t accept PayPal.

Conclusion: Avoid.

Run over by iDrive cloud backup service

For all this capability and value, IDrive is a PCMag Editors’ Choice for feature-packed online backup, an honor it shares with SOS Online and Acronis True Image.


I’m done ****ing around with your broken software and have since switched to Backblaze, which has been operating flawlessly. Unlike iDrive, no files are skipped, it’s unobtrusive, the backup size is correctly calculated, it always runs when it’s scheduled, and I never have to delete/reinstall it.

December 4, 2017: The first quote is from PC Magazine.  The second is from iDrive’s user forum.  There may be nothing illegal or wrong with the following business practices. But they suggest that the seller is not to be trusted. I’m using my Scam-O-Meter scoring system; -1 means true (bad), +1 means false (good), and 0 means undetermined. I penalize the seller for statements made by shills.  Contact information:

IDrive Inc.
26115, Mureau Road, Suite A,
Calabasas, CA 91302
Web site: iDrive

Ridiculous claims: +1.  None found.

Suspicious location: +1.  The address above is a respectable-looking office building.  I see no use of this address by suspicious businesses.  iDrive is a division of Pro Softnet Corporation.hq

Onerous terms: -1

  • You have to cancel before the next month or year of your service starts to avoid being charged for it.
  • After it’s been open for 15 days, you can’t cancel your account online.  You have to ask Support to do it for you.  (See below for how to cancel it online.)
  • If you get a new number for your credit card account, they’ll find out about it and keep on charging you.
  • They disclaim all warranties and liability for damage, for example due to loss of data.
  • You can’t join a class action that’s suing them; you can’t join a group arbitration.

Ads, spam, robocalls: +1.  They’ll email you advertising.  You can opt out.

Lying and deception: -1.  There seems to be no fixed price for this service.  They emailed me an offer for 75% off the first year to upgrade to a paid account.  But the link in the email led to a web page offering 25% or 50% off.  When I contacted support they said if I deleted my free account I could get a 90% off offer to sign up again.

Obfuscation: +1.  None found.

Phony reviews: 0.  This review in Cloudwards has a graphical link to iDrive’s signup page.  The review itself is informative, but the sponsorship makes me wonder how objective it is.

Crummy product: 0.  I’ve only found a couple of complaints about software defects; so I hesitate to draw a conclusion.  From PissedConsumer; “I discovered that many of the file dates for the backed up files to NOT match the dates on the source drive.  Many files dates on the back up were later than the actual file date.

Overpriced: +1.  Despite the confusion they’ve created over pricing, their regular prices are in the same range as other services.

Bad service: -1.  I’ve sent several technical questions to iDrive’s support group.  Most got only an auto-reply.  PissedConsumer.com has similar complaints.

Total score; 2

Unauthorized charges: CREDIT CARD RISK ALERT!  The Better Business Bureau rates iDrive “A+”.  However, they have several complaints about the difficulty of cancelling accounts and iDrive’s practice of billing changed credit card numbers.  “Got a replacement credit card and didn’t update my billing info, because their product didn’t work and they wouldn’t cancel my account. Well somehow they figured out how to get my new billing information and charged me for another year.”  “I am very concerned that iDrive was able to charge my checking account without having my current Visa bank card information.

Conclusion: Consider other cloud backup services.  Your first priority should be a good backup to your own storage media.


How to cancel your account on the web

  1.  In the top left corner of the iDrive web page, click Profile.

2.  Click Cancel my account.  If you don’t see this link, you can’t cancel it online; contact Support.  It worked for me; mine was a free trial account.

Attacked by 1TAC Flashlights (2017)

Tc 1200 is a total piece of s61t. My mom got it for me for Christmas… all hyped that she got me some premium flashlight… and that it was top of the line…

I see that my post about 1TAC flashlights of a year ago is beating all my other posts for hits.  (The above is from a reply to it; I hope you let your mom down gently, kid.)  And it’s getting close to Christmas.  So, time to take another look at this tactical flashlight and its seller.  (I didn’t say “maker;” c’mon, you know better than that.).

November 27, 2017; There may be nothing illegal or wrong with the following business practices. But they suggest that the seller is not to be trusted. I’m using my Scam-O-Meter scoring system; -1 means true (bad), +1 means false (good), and 0 means undetermined. I penalize the seller for statements made by shills.  Contact information:

Web site: 1TAC.com
Corporate address: 2630 Townsgate Suite I, Westlake Village CA, 91361
Phone: 1-855-259-1980
Email: support@1tac.com

Ridiculous claims: -1 

  • The blinding strobe and lightly crenellated bezel provide options for self defense, making this an excellent companion for walking home at night, or a solid choice for a back-up light for police or security personnel.”  Keep in mind that the flashlight is five inches long; not much of a club.
  • it has a disorienting strobe effect which can be used to blind the target permanently,” writes Tactical Flashlight Mag.
  • Original retail price $224; now $80?  See ‘Overpriced’ below.

Suspicious location: +1.  It looks like 1TAC’s fortunes have improved over the past year.  The corporate address listed above is in a respectable-looking office park, and is not a UPS store.  hqOther businesses at this address seem legit:

  • Brand Ventures Inc. (marketing)
  • Dronefly
  • Intergalactic Content

Onerous terms: -1

  • Shipping is free; but they’ll add a $3.95 processing and handling fee to the purchase price.
  • Items must be returned in new, unopened and unused condition …”  It looks like, if you try the light, you can’t return it.  They will also want to know your reason for returning it!
  • You have 30 days from the date of purchase – not from the date you received it – to return your flashlight.  Shipping takes 10 to 14 days, leaving you with perhaps two weeks to return it.
  • They charge a processing and handling fee on returns.  Unless your flashlight is defective, they’ll charge you for the return postage too.
  • If you reverse their charge on your credit card, that’s “theft.”
  • You can’t sue them, join a class action that’s suing them, or join a group arbitration.  Fallback position; you have to come to a Los Angeles court to sue them.
  • They don’t guarantee that the flashlight is fit for any use; nor that anything they say is true.

Ads, spam, robocalls: -1

  • They’ll beam ads at you and spam you.
  • They’ll share your data with other companies that will do the same.
  • If they sell their company, your data is part of the deal.

Lying and deception: -1.  “An IP65 waterproofing standard protects this light against water … ”  I”m impressed that 1TAC uses an International Protection Marking code for the level of protection their flashlight provides.  But, IP65 is not a waterproof level of protection.  “Water-resistant” would be more accurate.

Obfuscation: +1.  None found.

Phony reviews: -1.  I see lots of obvious shills touting the TC1200.  And the ones I’ve checked are pretty funny too; see “Bloopers” below.

Crummy product: 0.  From what I can tell from unbiased reviewers, it’s mediocre at best.  Amazon customers rated it an average 3.2 stars.  “Bought 3 of these. One started corroding after 5-6 uses within the first 2 months. One ran down new energizer batteries in a few hours. Company does not stand behind the product. They would replace the corroding parts but wanted to charge me for shipping and handling.

Overpriced: -1.  1TAC is asking $80 for this 1200-lumen, 5-function flashlight.  Amazon has several 1200-lumen flashlights, including this remarkably similar light for $10.

Bad service: -1.  I see many complaints about deceptive practices and failure to respond to phone calls and emails.  From Reviewopedia; “Attempted to call but was on hold over 30 minutes. Emailed customer service and was told to wait up to 24 hours for a response – it’s been over 48 hours. I think I’m out $94 – A hard lesson learned.”  The Better Business Bureau rates 1TAC B- with nine complaints.

Total score; -5

Unauthorized charges:  1TAC doesn’t accept PayPal; that doesn’t look good.

Conclusion: Buy a flashlight at your local hardware store.  There you can try before you buy, and you have a good chance of returning a product you’ve used.

laughBloopers:

  • The recessed tail switch can be operated with one hand …”  Ahahaha, stop it!  Every flashlight can be operated with one hand!
  • Tame reviewer InfinitePowerSolutions hypes 1TAC’s TC1200 flashlight, with prominent graphical links to a different vendor selling a different product; Military Supply USA.
  • TC1200 information 1Tac very rare became only at this time, but we will do our best to provide the specifications and qualifications of this perceived military too flashlight technology, which has just been made available to the public. It is said that the spotlight LED digital concentrations produce extremely bright, light and radiation that should not be used in a game, or as a light.”  This is from the tech-savvy web site Save Of Scam Activity.
  • Irrespective of your individual position or job-related status, handy tools are becoming increasingly popular.”  Thank you for that insight, The Tactical Pros.

Slimed by Brilliant Download (2017)

thank you for haveing this siet for me to use becuz b4 i was only borowing my freinds movies and games and now i can haev my own withot trying to get them to give me thiers .

Brilliant Download is so pleased with this customer (if he exists) that they display the above testimonial on their own web site.

scamometer -5rNovember 25, 2017: I wrote about this outfit a year ago; it looks like nothing has changed.  There may be nothing illegal or wrong with the following business practices. But they suggest that the seller is not to be trusted. I’m using my Scam-O-Meter scoring system; -1 means true (bad), +1 means false (good), and 0 means undetermined. I penalize the seller for statements made by shills.  Contact information:

Web site: BrilliantDownload.com

Ridiculous claims: +1.  None found.

Carmen_SandiegoSuspicious location: -1.  Brilliant Download hides their location, earning my Carmen Sandiego “Where In The World?” award.  A clue; their Customer Care office hours are given in London time.

Onerous terms: -1

  • Free trials are typically offered to potential subscribers of a service.  But not by this outfit; you have to pay $2 just to try it.  And then you only get to try it for three days.
  • At the end of your three-day trial they’ll charge you $100 for a one-year subscription.  Then you can ask for a refund for 27 more days.  After that, your one-year subscription is cast in concrete and you are not going to get out of it.

Ads, spam, robocalls: +1.  Brilliant Download keeps only your email address, and they don’t share it.

Lying and deception: -1.  My problem with their claims is that they lead you to draw a conclusion that’s not supported by the actual words.

  • Fast Speed: Basically it depends only on the speed of your connection because downloads go directly from the highspeed servers to you.”  Whose high-speed servers are they talking about here?  Further down I read “We don’t host or link any file …
  • Sign up and get instant access to tons of links to movies, tv shows, music and other legal files.”  Do you get movies, TV shows, etc.?  No, just links.  Are the links only to legal files?  Hmmm …  Do you get the links from Brilliant Download?  Um, no.

Obfuscation: -1.  To find out the price, you have to give them personal information.

Phony reviews: 0.  I can’t check the on-site testimonials.  All the external reviews I found looked legit, and were very negative.

Crummy product: -1.  As far as I can determine, you can’t find anything thru Brilliant Downloads that isn’t available with Google.  And you’ll pay the same for the content either way.

Overpriced: -1.  Brilliant Downloads is asking $40 a month or $100 a year for their “consulting service.”  You can find the same links on Google for nothing.

Bad service: -1.  I see many complaints about failure to reply to emails and give refunds.  From PissedConsumer.com; “I sent a mail to cancel membership 3 days later that was when the site charged me $40. I sent several mails for refund and cancellation of membership but no respond.  I contacted my bank and I was asked to get a new card in order to avoid future debits from the site.

Total score; -5

Unauthorized charges:  CREDIT CARD RISK ALERT.  Brilliant Download forces people into subscriptions by ignoring emails that ask for cancellations and refunds.  It looks like the three-day trial charge is a ruse to get your credit card data.  They also charge people who have had no contact with them, apparently using hacked credit card data.

  • From SiteJabber.com; “found a PDF I wanted, paid for trial membership, then the book was no longer listed. Surprise surprise I then got a call from my bank about suspicious activity on my account – they tried to take $80, the thieving ***************s. Luckily my bank stopped the payment, but my card in now cancelled, so all in all a complete scam – avoid it like the plague!
  • From ComplaintsBoard.com; “I haven’t used the website of Brilliant Download and recently I checked my account statement and found out that these guys charged me couple of times. I emailed them and got response that I wouldn’t see my money and they didn’t tell me, where they have found my person and card details. Guys, spread this information and be very careful with them. It’s really impossible to return money.
  • A bad sign; Brilliant Download doesn’t accept PayPal.

Conclusion: Just search with Google.  It costs nothing.  Here is a brief tutorial video on how to use Google Search.

These diverging views are from reviews of the Honey add-on for the Firefox browser.  There may be nothing illegal or wrong with the following business practices.

Onerous terms: 0

  • You can’t sue them, or join a group that’s suing them, or join a group arbitration.  But you can escape these terms by giving advance notice.
  • They don’t guarantee that anything they say is true.

Ads, spam, robocalls: -1

  • They’ll spam you and beam ads at you.
  • With your approval, they’ll share your data with other advertisers.
  • You can opt out of collection of some kinds of data; but then you’re disqualified from some offers.
  • If they sell their company, your data is part of the deal.  You’ll be notified and night have some choice in the matter.

Lying and deception: +1.  None found.

Obfuscation: +1.  None found.

Phony reviews: -1.  “Ordinary Moves” by entrepreneur Cam Secore is a strikingly friendly review with graphical links to honey.com.  No doubt with every click payola is moving the other way.

Crummy product: 0.  In the reviews I’ve checked, the verdict isn’t clear.  There seems to be some possibility of saving money at online stores like Amazon, coupled with some degradation of your browser performance.

Overpriced: +1.  The web browser add-on is free.  You use it to make purchases from other vendors.

Bad service: +1.  My test email “consumer question” was promptly answered.  And the answer was quite informative.  I’ve included it at the end of this post.

Total score; 4

Unauthorized charges: Not applicable.  Honey.com doesn’t charge shoppers anything for its coupon service (it charges the sellers, such as Amazon vendors).  If you decide to install the browser extension, it directs you to your browser provider’s web page for installing extensions.

Tax avoidance: CNET’s Rick Broida sees honey.com as a sales-tax avoidance service.  Honey.com’s own web site states that sales tax is one of the factors that go into selecting which deal to offer.

Conclusion: This browser add-on looks pretty harmless, and it should save you a little money.  If it’s important to you to pay sales tax when shopping online, don’t use it.  If it slows down your browsing, uninstall it.
