Exposing The Kelly Simmons Scam
I thought I’d do a quick post to expose the Kelly Simmons alias once and for all. Kelly is nothing more than a character made up by the same scammers responsible for a string of almost identical websites.
Here’s proof (click to enlarge):
In fact this same disclaimer has been used on a number of websites such as:
- Home Jobs Today: www.home-jobs-today.com – Read my review
- Replace Your Job: www.replace-your-job.com – Read my review
- Home Internet Careers: www.home-internet-careers.com – Read my review
- 37 Clicks: www.37clicks.com
- Home Job Placement: www.home-job-placement.com
- Certainly many more…
These are just a few of the websites I’ve recently found and reviewed, unfortunately these scam websites are very common. There are many varieties of these online but they all share similar characteristics and fake personas.
Other names these websites use include ‘Kelly Scott’, Theresa Andrews and Emily Hudson to name a few.
How Is This Able To Keep Going?
It is very difficult for authorities to stop these websites from appearing given the global and somewhat anonymous nature of the Internet. They normally run these websites until there’s enough reviews on the front page of Google to warn people and/ or the authorities do catch up with them and shut down their web address (AKA domain name).
What do they do once they get shut down?
They normally just change the name of the website, the fake persona, a few images and/or the domain name. The scheme they run stays the same though, it’s a bit like cutting off one head and seeing another three appear.
It will likely never stop sadly enough, they just change a few things around and keep scamming.
What They Normally Promote
From the ones I’ve seen the majority of the time they promote link posting schemes with the occasional dodgy mlm company or known scam website thrown in the mix. Nothing they promote is ever worth purchasing and there are some very real risks involved in giving these people your personal and credit card information.
From what I have seen their payment portals are never secure which means who knows what is happening with your sensitive info. In this day and age with identity theft and credit card fraud on the rise, this is a very real concern.
Another thing they do is collect your email and phone details so that a team of highly trained ‘pressure sellers’ can contact you and convince you to buy more products and services. They’re very clever at what they do and a lot of people have fallen victim to this kind of selling tactic.
One program I saw these guys promoting was being run by a known scammer that had actually been fined millions of dollars by the FTC, yet they were actively promoting his programs!
What You Can Do
For my part I will continue to expose this BS every time I come across a new version to make people as aware as possible. I encourage you to check out the current scams I’ve reviewed to keep updated as I come across these.
More often than not several hundred people have lost money before I get a chance to expose them so the more people let me know the better I can help people avoid this crap. All you need to do is go to the above page and comment if you find something or contact me here. Any help in this regard is truly appreciated and I’m sure others will be thankful as well.
The Bottom Line
Kelly Simmons is not real and never has been, she is nothing more than a character designed to suck as many people as possible into the rubbish programs these people promote.
They often use the whole ‘single mothers on struggle street who’ve become financially free’ as a way to connect with people and build trust, just like how they often try to affiliate themselves with known celebrities and legitimate news companies. It’s all fake from the comments to the testimonials and everything in between.
There is a legit way to make money online but it will never be found by looking for the ‘easy route’… the truth is there are no free and easy tickets in life (short of winning the lottery) and building ANY business takes consistent work and effort. The guru’s actively prey on people looking for the quick road to riches. The take home? Don’t be that person.
