Kevin Gets Money – Your Money! Yet Another Facebook Ad Scam.

by El Plumber (admin) on February 19, 2009

kevinscam1 Kevin Gets Money   Your Money!  Yet Another Facebook Ad Scam.

Check out the very latest Facebook ads for the work at home program at kevinsmoneytree.org. I’m not sure if these ads and sites keep changing because they are getting banned from Facebook and the scammers keep putting up new ones, or if they just keep rotating the part time job ads in the hopes of catching people who might have caught on to the scam before. Very likely it’s to avoid articles like this one which call out their tricks so they change names and keep going. Anyway, today we’re talking about one Mr Kevin Collins.

Married, to Samantha no less. Interesting that he welcomes you to his work from home secrets site KevinsMoneySecrets.com in his posting, even though he’s now at kevinsmoneytree. I suspect he got chased up a Google Money Tree by a mob of screaming angry scammed consumers and thus changed his site name. He has a double get rich quick scheme for you.

Google Money System Scam

The first from Google Money System which is the same scam we exposed in our article on Google Kits, Google Cash, and Google Money Tree Scams, just now under the name  Google Money System.  Click on it and you go to secure.emillionaireinstitute.com where if you give them your credit card you’ll see three different monthly charges appear for 39.95, 24.95, and 12.95, plus various 2.95 fees on top.  Good luck canceling those.

Obama Government Grant Scam

The second is pretty much the same scam, offering info on government grants that can easily be had for free else where.  Click on the Obama Secure Grant Now link and you’re brought to a site called www.federalgovernmentgrantsolutions.com where you’ll also be scammed out of various montly fees.  Same thing we exposed in our article on Obama Government Grant Scam Ads, just slightly different pictures. It’s going to take the Feds months or years to track down and stop these people, and even if they do, once they take it, you’ll never see the money they took from you again.  The only thing to do is warn everyone you can not to fall for it.  Here is what you can do to help:

There are literally hundreds of these identical spam blogs all promoting emillionaire institute.

They have flooded Google with hundreds of spam blogs linking to emillionaireinstitute.com – Funny how the faces and pictures change but the story remains the same!

All these people worked for a “pipe manufacturing company”, lots of them are married to someone called “Audrey” and they all got cheques with the same date for exactly $5000.00 – ??? Really!?

eg: do this search: google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=AlexxelA75&btnG=Search&meta=

And you will find loads of this rubbish:

markgetsgreen.com
anthonyisgreen.com/
nickgetsgreen.com/
kevinsrecessionblog.com/jobs/kevin-hoeffer/
edwhitleymoneyjob.com/1/
jeffgetsgreen.com/
marysmoneyblog.com/index.php?
and literally hundreds more!

This search shows over 300 identical blogs linking to emillionaire institute (only the names and pictures of people change):
google.co.uk/search?q=%22A+year+ago+I+was+an+account+manager+for+a+(drum+roll)+a+pipe+manufacturing+company.+%22&hl=en&filter=0

Google just one of those many hundreds of blogs and you will find tens of thousands of links to it spammed all over the internet:
eg: google.co.uk/search?q=jasonberinski.com&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a
Shows 24,400 results

So there are probably hundreds of thousands of links to hundreds of virtually identical blogs and all the blogs link through to emillionaireinstitute

There are other versions too, like this one (not yet listed in Google but being promoted via Google Adwords):
bobsmoneyblog.com/index.php?G…etwork:General
grantmoolah.com/index.php?360…etwork:General

Since posting this those links now automatically redirect to emillionaireinstitute so they obviously don’t want you to see their new blogs. :)

If enough people complain to Facebook and Google Adwords about these scam adverts then maybe they will remove them – I guess another version will just pop up a few weeks later though…

It is so sad that people are thinking on how to take opportunity of others. I hope they will stop it.

This is beyond belief; however this goes to show that the educated have no moral inegrity when it comes to being honest.
Very bad fibre. With knowledge one should grow in what is moral as well.

Perika May 12, 2009 at 6:37 am

They should stop it . Ye, definitely would agree with MIchelle. They should have moral fiber as well. x)

On KevinBlogSite.org, you will see Kevin posing as Kevin Hoeffer and not Kevin Collins. The name of his blog is Kevin Goes Green. He states that he is married to Audrey – not Samantha. His “wife” is a different woman in the picture. Such crap.

Camila February 20, 2010 at 1:35 am

hello camila here.yes i agree with you.off course when you can improve the ranking of you site by an unauthorized and free way which is in your access then why you need to care for the rules and ethics.i mean now a days when everyone wants money no one can think over it.
