The Profit Streams Online scam is something that could end up costing you thousands of dollars and I am going to clearly explain why I say this here. Do not be fooled by this rubbish, there is nothing legit about this at all.
The first red flag for me was the notion that by simply filling in a few details you could be on your way to sharing in billions of dollars per month in income. The “start making money tonight” BS is just one of many lies, I can assure you the only people that will be making money tonight is the people behind this website if you join.
It’s all about quick and easy money which really is a massive con, nothing is that easy or everyone would be doing it. Building an online business takes time, effort and consistent hard work.
They expect you to put all of your personal and sensitive information into the box on the right without even explaining a thing about what it is you will actually be doing to make all this money. They say ‘get paid from companies like Amazon’ which could mean anything at all..
It could mean becoming an Amazon Associate and promoting products as an affiliate or perhaps learning to create your own products and selling them in their marketplace. There’s a quite a few ways to earn money with a legitimate company like Amazon.
The problem is, these guys are NOT affiliated with them in any way and my bet is they don’t teach you anything legitimate at all.
They are simply using it as a means to build trust and credibility, the same way they post little pictures of Facebook, YouTube, Google and Bing etc on the sales page. It means nothing and they are simply trying to get people to believe their rubbish story and buy into the hype.
There are two so called testimonials on the page and neither of them can be substantiated because they are stock photos and text they’ve written themselves. They are impossible to prove or verify and the claims are unbelievable. This is very common with these kinds of websites and I’ve seen and reviewed a lot of this before.
Fake comments and testimonials are just one of the many tricks these scammers play on people to get them to sign up to this rubbish.
The Page I Was Directed To
What happened after I put my details in?
My web browser actually tried to stop me from proceeding because it was deemed to be an insecure website.
Nevertheless after putting my details in I was told that ‘no spots are available’ and I was redirected to another website they are promoting called ‘TheFreeBucket.com’. On this website they promote the following programs…
They ask you to put your details in so these scammers can contact you, look at the sort of questions they are asking…
From the get go I knew this was a dodgy website so I decided to dig deeper into what they were offering people. In particular I looked into Jeff Pauls ‘Quick Internet Cash’ but I couldn’t find anything on that. All I found were some really low grade blogs from years ago talking about this guy being some ‘internet guru from the 90’s’.
I managed to find a video about one of his systems called ‘Shortcuts To Internet Millions’ where I found it hard to believe how rubbish it was. This guy is telling people that with no work, no skills, no money and in no time at all they’ll be ‘shortcutting their way to millions of dollars’ using the Internet. This is such BS it’s not even funny!
He uses an attractive model to pretend to be a reporter…
This is an absolute textbook example of a guru scam and pretty much the epitome of what I stand against and this was just one of the systems this website was promoting.
Here’s proof of what I am saying…
I decided to dig around the net to try and find out what this Jeff Paul guy was all about I stumbled across a $478 million judgement made against him and some of his guru buddies by the FTC for ripping people off!
It clearly states that he is engaged with misleading and deceiving consumers and it backs up other reviews I’ve seen online about how he gets people in with a low ticket item, then up sells them into ‘coaching programs’ for thousands of dollars.
It’s details like this that these people don’t want you to know about, but there you go.
The Fake Phone Number
I also decided to check out the ‘support’ number they provided on the website in the disclosure tab.
I did a reverse lookup and turns out it’s just a fake number…
There’s no support because this is only set up to sell you stuff, lots of stuff. Once you call that number they have yours so you are now on their prospect list.
Whichever way you look at it, it is very clear to me that this website is not legit and they are out to blatantly rip people off at every turn. Whether it’s thought their own programs or through the known scam programs they are promoting.
Here are some of the risks in signing up to this for free even before spending a dime:
- Pressure sales tactics designed to convince you to spend into the thousands in the hope of making money online
- Selling your details to other people, meaning you’ll see an endless wave of spam emails, calls and text messages
- Potential identity theft or credit card fraud
They do not have your best interests at heart and they are just trying to get at your hard earned money. My advice is to stay well away from this scam. The even worse part about it is that it’s been going on for years and will likely continue to do so. They keep using the same one page websites and just put them under a new domain name (web address) and change a few details once they’ve been exposed.
Pretty soon this one will be gone and running under a new name and web address, but I’ll just keep exposing these scams as I see them.
