Heavily involved in internet marketing, BizWhizNetwork.com has viruses or malware on many of its web pages. And it has the same physical address as Shadowhawk Flashlights.
What sort of company is this? I set out to find out.
I first noticed Bizwhiznetwork.com (red links are risky, do not click) while I was looking into the LUX HD450 smartphone lens scam. In July 2016 I posted information about the connections of the LUX operation, which lead to Shadowhawk Flashlights and Bizwhiznetwork.com. Because Shadowhawk is a widely-known scammer, I assumed that Bizwhiznetwork.som must somehow be involved in scamming, too.
While I was in Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport on 1/23/17, I received an email from someone at Bizwhiznetwork.com. It said:
Hello I am contacting you in regards to bizwhiznetwork.com we are no scammers and would appreciate it if you can remove your negative things about us on your website. This was a project that i have work long and hard on for years now since being hack and getting malware on my site Im asking politely now to remove me from web scammer jammer. thank you
Is this web site risky to look at?
The email included the company’s web address. Curiously, I touched it:
It looked like the airport’s wifi gateway was blocking bizwhiznetwork.com. I did a search on whether the website was safe; Norton said it wasn’t.
The Bizwhizhetwork.com email had mentioned the same problem. Maybe they are just a victim of some external hacker? I replied, asking “Would you like to tell me more about your business?” I received no response.
From home, I tried to access the page again, after making sure that my Safari browser had the BitDefender extension:
BitDefender’s “Stoplight” feature flags risky web links with red lights. I saw a lot of them when I googled for Bizwhiznetwork.com:
What sort of company is this?
bizwhiznetwork.com looks to be an enterprising small business that specializes in online marketing support. It attempts to cover many specialties.
- On January 29, 2017, Google lists this description of the company:

- GetFave.com lists a similar description:

“SEO” means “Search Engine Optimization.” Here’s an explanation of SEO. It’s apparent that Bizwhiznetwork.com specializes in servicing companies that sell stuff on the web.
- Bizwhiznetwork.com has a skeletal Instagram profile that boasts “Commercial branding experts.“
- Bizwhiznetwork.com has a YouTube channel with one video. It’s entitled “How To Make Money Fast Online.”
- I see ads by Bizwhiznetwork.com for an app called InstaSaver; for example, here.
BizwhizNetwork.com operates a web site that features short, innocuous news stories. Safe sites that echo Bizwhiznetwork.com offer such headlines as:
- Apple iOS 10.1.1 Software Update Released
- Make Money on Zazzle; Tips from a ProSeller
- Leading Motivational Speaker for Personal and Corporate Events
What’s special about its location?
FourSquare lists this business contact information:
7582 Las Vegas Blvd S (Las Vegas Blvd)
Las Vegas, NV 89123
I see a UPS store at this address. The Better Business Bureau of southern Nevada lists the above as the address of well-known scammer Shadowhawk Flashlights. Maybe this is just a coincidence? The two businesses could be renting separate mailboxes and have nothing to do with each other.
What about its reputation?
I found no complaints about bizwhiznetwork.com at the BBB, RipoffReport.com or PissedConsumer.com. I found no complaints by doing searches on Google. But I found no in-depth reviews or ratings of bizwhiznetwork.com either.
If you know anything about Bizwhiznetwork.com, please reply! Thank you.
