Email Scams Using Google Reputation

Sometimes I empathize with those scammers. Why? They actually are smart to put up ideas that can really deceive the many. I actually pity the victims but sometimes, I just think that there are only wolves and sheeps in this world... If you don't try to be stupid and fall a victim, no one will actually be the bad guy as the two always exist in pair. Thus, if you don't allow yourself or ourselves to be scammed or swindled, there will be no swindlers and successful scammers around.

I can't blame it to anything but for sure, not only one would have replied to this email. I know it as these scams would never continue to exists if they don't get a lot of victims daily. Ladies and gentlemen, if you have not entered a contest, there is no way you should win! I did not enter in any contest and here I am, a big Winner! If this email arrives to your inbox, or an email with similar tone, don't jump right to the conclusion taht you'll have money! You'll probably lose some if you entertain these kinds of mails!

Beware of scammers! Beware of online swindlers!

Money Mule Scammer, Tournaments Pro Makes Me Glad! And Hey! This Scammer Hits United States This Time

TournamentsPro or Tournaments Pro dot net or dot com or dot info or however and whatever that scammer change to, the fact that it is a scam company does not change. A month or two back, I got a visit from a German forum to my blog entry on the original post regarding this scam company or website. The post was made in 2008 and only in the first months of 2009 I got visits from Google and from that German forum. As you can see, I use the feedjit widget seen in my right sidebar to trace my traffic so I was able to click them back and see what site it was: that’s where I ended up in a German website.

I discovered by then that someone was so glad about a work-at-home or online job or “be paid-to-boss-yourself” job that he got into-from TournamentsPro. Some concerned members of that forum got a bit alarmed and searched about the credibility of the company and they ended up in my site here with this post. I got repeat visits from that forum thereafter and I knew what was happening: the money-mule website is back! It hit the German target. However, they changed the [dot]com to a [dot]net,making the http://www.tournamnetspro.com to http://www.tournamnetspro.net.

I made a plan to really expose this website or group of scammers. I composed another post, which you can find here, with emails, sample contracts and other proofs that this scammer TournamentsPro or Tournaments Pro, is not new to me. I knew it by heart that it is a scammer as we even ended up in a police office in Italy only to report it.

After a week or two that I wrote the second post about scamming by TournamnetsPro, it was last Tuesday that I got the breakthrough. I got hits from Google searches, at least 250 of them last Tuesday, all landing in any of my tournaments pro post on scammers. What does this mean? The scammer hit the United States of America! Again, thanks to feedjit! I took a lot of screenshots and I also went to feedjit live to see how it was: I got a visit in matter of two minutes for the same search keywords: tournaments pro, tournaments pro scam, “work at home with tournaments pro”etcetera. By then, I realized that at least people are careful enough to search what online transactions offer them.

View completely the information about the place, browser, time and search keywords used concered surfers online in arriving at my posts about Tournamnets Pro, the scammer.


I am thinking that these people who searched are lucky as there is already something written for them to warn them of the possibilities if they continue contacting or communicating with Tournamnets Pro scammer: they’ll be scammed surely or the more probable event would be that they would be used by the scammer to scam others without them knowing that they are used!. I am glad for them. Can you imagine 100 or two people get scammed or swindled simply because there is no available information online? Just like for the victim of the same money mule scamming site TournamnetsTournaments pro here?

Today I got a visit from India and another from Maldives. I believe this scammer is trying to penetrate every nation, but thanks to Google! Now people can be warned about their (scammers) activities. I still have to post here again the emails’ sources and codes pointing the IP of tournaments pro email to some place in Central or South America but that would come next. I just want to express my contentment that my effort in writing the post before about the same scammer, TournamnetsPro, almost a year ago has paid up; it has served its purpose. I am very glad for it. Also I am very thankful for the traffic it gave me.

The following Anonymous comment I got from here really makes me feel satisfied. Although others did not leave a comment, I capture the prints they left when they visited here as shown in the screenshots.

Thanks for this page. I got their email too, and looking at the site you can tell it's fake. Look at the stock photo of those 2 people that appear on every page.

Thank you for posting the warning about TournamentsPro. I was sent an email from those scammers because I have registered my Resume with job banks.

Do you really want to know what this money-mule scammer is up to? Read the related posts. Actually, since they require documents, I think it is not far ahead before they shift from money mule to identity theft! Or maybe they are doing it already, stealing identities of others to gain money! Pretending who thay are not! With their courageous move to swindle people all over the world, they’d be bold enough to steal people’s identity! Be careful everyone, search about anything and if you discover something, don’t hesitate to share it to everyone. Use the power of the Internet!

Prevent more scamming, help your fellow individuals not to be scammed or worse, help them not to be a victim of identity theft.

Unexpected BidVertiser Earnings Payable This Month

The other day received this unexpected mail from BidVertiser about my recent earnings from them. Although it is an information that they still need to audit the validity of such earnings, I have previous payouts from BidVertiser without any problem. What I am saying is, it is more of a “sure” earning now. As you can see, I don’t run ads by BidVertiser in this blog and I only run it in one of my blogs about travels and explorations.



Simply use the scroll bar to see the whole image. That is my all-time earning record (highlighted in yellow) from Bidvertiser.

However, if I may remember good, I have two of these referral widgets for fellow publishers/bloggers. I currently (before this latest note from them) have an accumulated earnings of $28.79. So far, my total passive earnings from BidVertiser is around $40 which is not bad when I only run their ads in a single site (I used to run ads in many sites/blogs/pages before) plus I really never promote the referrals. This is literally a “passive earning”.



The mail from BidVertiser announcing the earnings. How I wish this kind of message frequent my inbox. ^^

The mail about this month’s earning triggered my curiosity where it came from. I investigated my long neglected account and I was surprised to see that I have so many signups from my referral widgets/links. Wow! Only that one really cannot earn from sign ups alone.

How to earn from referrals in BidVertiser then? The last time I know something about is is, if the referred earns at least $10, the referrer earns this amount as well. Or, if the referred earns $50, the referrer earns this amount as well. Isn’t that cool? This means that the one who referred me will have his/her $50 soon! I do not have any idea whose link I clicked to sign up with BidVertiser.

I did not earn much with the ads, I earned more with referrals. The total earnings that I have with the clicked ads is $19.73 while the earnings from referrals is $20 as of now.

For those who do not have Google Adsense ads, I believe BidVertiser and many others are such a good alternative. For me, though it is not so big of an earning, but I am just glad that it keeps on coming. So if you want to try this alternative, better visit BidVertiser Here . Sign up, make referral widget and if you may wish, run their ads and your blog or site visitors might click them and give you earnings.



I actually don't have any idea that many have signed up with my referrals already. How I wish they ear as earnings for them also means earnings for me. .
