Alina Cruz, this is the name now of a Manila Mom Working from Home and makes about $ 7,000 – $ 8,000 a month. This is the latest scam from a fake news website, careerjournalonline.org.
Actually, I discovered that the name Alina Cruz is being used in two scams only this week and one under the name again of Melissa Johnson, alleged also to be from Manila, all published in CareerJournalOnline. All three articles are published by fictitious author Amanda Ong, Amanda Chan and Amanda Winston, one person using also different surnames.
Scam after scam…
I noticed that on the article, they only edited some portions like changing the names, figures, but the content remains the same. Even the cheque amount, cheque number and dates shown on the cheque are the same. Upon further research this scam has been around for almost six years, also using the names Theresa Andrews, Julie Hansen, Krishna Karpal, Melicia Henry and Melissa Jung.
This fake news website is used to promote online programs which are also scammy in nature. In spite of being revealed as scams, why they are still around, continuing with their illegal activities? My perception is that it is being promoted by affiliates of the programs being mentioned.
Information about the programs being promoted
1. Paid Surveys at Home – is a website that promises to connect you with the highest paying market research companies available. It is owned by Patricia Johnson and charges a fee to get access to a list of companies. For just $ 68.00 – or $ 34.00 with their temporary 50% off coupon – you can be connected to over 450 online survey companies and over 300 additional work at home opportunities.
But can you really earn thousands of dollars with these survey sites? No, you can earn only $ 5 – $ 10 for completed survey from a well-respected market research company but mostly, you make only $ 1 – $ 2 for each completed survey. Also, market research companies are usually free to join. It is hard to believe that you earn thousands of dollars from survey sites as claimed by Paid Surveys at home.
2. Home Income Package – After you click the link, it will take you to another website, www.hornymatches.com. It is a website on Adult Personal Online Sex dates. When I tried to check the website, it is down for maintenance. If you sign up for their affiliate program, it will take you to another website, www.pimpmansion.com, where you are going to sign up.
3. Online Cash Source – You are going to fill out a short form and apply for a work-at-home kit and a small activation fee of less than $ 2. But this is only the beginning, there is an upsell of $ 29.90 per month for you to access your back office. The process of upselling continues to go on. They ask for more money to improve the website to increase the traffic, and so on, on a monthly basis until you realize and admit that you were scammed.
All comments are fake and almost the same in content.
On the comments section of the three programs, you will notice that the contents are almost similar to each other. They changed some of the images with other names and if you’re not aware of this tactics, you will easily get hooked and easily believe on this testimonials.
