This website is completely fake and deceptive in every respect, it is nothing more than a misleading and sneaky sales page. Don’t let the Consumer Trends Today scam rip you off… after reading this you’ll know exactly what I am talking about.
What Is This Website All About?
The website (found at consumer-trends.net) is purely designed to promote a multi level marketing company that I recently reviewed called Le-Vel Thrive. Every single link on the website takes you to a slimy video from some faker claiming to have the answer to your success. After putting your email in it takes you to a sales page designed to get you into the Thrive business, which is among the worst mlm companies I’ve ever reviewed on this website.
It has an F rating on the BBB and the opportunity is nothing like how this fake website is portraying it to be.

It’s All Fake & I’m Going To Prove It
There are a number of straight out lies about all of this and by the time you’ve finished reading there will be absolutely no doubt whatsoever about the nature of this BS.
The Consumer Trends website is almost exactly the same as another fake website I recently reviewed called ‘The Home Lifestyle Report’ (HLR), I guarantee this has been made by the same people. Everything about them is nearly identical other than changing around a few words and pictures. The comments down the bottom are exactly the same on both websites as is the general layout.
They both promote different rubbish systems and I know there yet other websites the same as these. I’ll probably end up doing an entire article exposing all of these generic pages as I find them. My bet is that there are dozens.
Every Link Points To The Promotion Of Thrive
I am not kidding when I say that every single link on the page points to the mlm company I just mentioned. Not one of these are real, this is not a real website but a sales page…
Even this part takes you to the sales page…
The Comments Are Fake
The comments they are using are also the same as the HLR website and the date is just updated daily to look fresh, they’ve been using the same comments for months/ years.
It says that in order to make a comment you must be registered but the link to the registration just takes you to… surprise surprise… the sales page.
The Location Changes
They are using a unique software that automatically changes the location this person is from to one near you (or where it thinks is near you). It changes according to the user at the time so when you read about this ‘Mom’ being from somewhere near you, she isn’t. For me it said Griffin which is totally wrong lol, but you get the point.
The fact is she doesn’t even exist because it’s a fake persona and they do this to try and personalise the offer and build more trust. Nice try guys.
It’s Not Free
Another rubbish statement is that it’s all free which is simply untrue.
It is free to join Thrive but you cannot make any real money or get anywhere near the results this page is claiming until you have become ‘qualified and active’ with $100 per month worth of purchasing. It could potentially cost you anywhere from $1500- over $2000 in the first year alone based on my research.
Nothing Is Going To ‘Expire’
They also employ pushy ‘hurry be quick’ tactics to get you to rush through and sign up without thinking. I can assure you that nothing about this page or the offers are going to expire, unless of course they eventually get shut down which wouldn’t surprise me.
It is rigged up so that the date keeps refreshing itself every single day much like the comments. This is a classic and overused guru tactic.
Beware Of Giving These Guys Your Phone Number
The way these scammers have things set up is they ask you for your phone number so they can ring you about the ‘opportunity’. After you give them your number they will try and sell you into the mlm business I was talking about above and then into even more products and services, also likely scams.
Once they have exhausted this avenue they will almost certainly proceed to sell your information to someone else so they make even more money off you. I’ve had this happen to me by another crappy website and I can tell you it isn’t nice. I am seriously considering changing my number it’s getting that bad, daily texts and calls from all over the world!
It’s Not That Simple
One of the biggest things about this rubbish that annoys me is that they lead people to believe that it’s all going to be so easy. Just sign up and watch the money roll in… this is so far from reality it’s not even funny.
Any legitimate person that has ever made a dollar online or with an mlm company will tell you it takes a lot of work. Nothing is ever that simple and easy, these people are simply lying to you.
Fake Affiliations With Credible Sources
Another one of their tactics is leveraging credible sources like NBC, CNN and CBS etc along with general ‘work from home’ videos to trick people into believing they are legit. They also compare the Thrive company with the likes of Amazon, Apple and Google which is actually so absurd I had to laugh!
Upon looking closer, the news report videos have NOTHING to do with this website or the company they are promoting. They also have zero affiliation with any of those companies, this is nothing more than a cheap marketing trick. Check out their disclaimer down the bottom of the page where they legally have to admit this in tiny writing.
I hope this review and some of the links I posted in this article serve to help you avoid this blatant scam and save your money.
I’ve been fooled by similar things before and I know what it’s like being stuck in an endless cycle of rubbish ‘systems’ just trying to find a way to make some money on the Internet. Unfortunately, this program is not the answer you’ve been looking for.
