I had the unpleasant experience of coming across Dont-Get-Scammed-Again.com. Immediately, I was greeted by Mark Hodges’ loud obnoxious voice claiming to be the only person on the entire internet that offers free online product reviews. He apparently hasn’t heard of I’ve Tried That. We always appreciate a little competition, but this site falls short of anything coherent.
Where are all the free reviews?
If you navigate to the end of the presell page, you will find a sign-up form that you need to fill out in order to gain access to the free reviews. If you want to review the site yourself, I highly suggest using a fake name and email to avoid the harvesting and selling of your personal information. You may also call me, Franklin McNugget and you may reach me at MrMcNugget@SleepoversWithRichardWilliams.com.
The next page finally gives us some information, including: how to add Mark Hodges’ email to your safe-sender list so he can spam you with useless crap for eternity, and how Mark bought into over 937 different programs but doesn’t name a single one. (Just for the record, if the average program costs $25 to join, Mark would have spent over $23,000. I find this highly unlikely. Anyone with half a brain would stop spending money after the first or second scam.) However, there is a link to Mark’s list of recommended programs and the list is less than shocking.
Mark’s list consists of three programs and they are all conveniently named ‘Legit Program.’ At this point in time, I normally stop the review because it is no longer worth my time or efforts, but I followed the links to the three ‘legit programs.’ The first linked me to a long presell page. Scam. The next was to a data entry program. Scam. The last link was to create your online dollar store. Waste of time and money. If you follow any of the links and sign up for any programs, Mark will most likely make between $20-$30. Don’t just hand over your hard earned money to a scammer.
Don’t want to get scammed again? Don’t go to this website.
Until now, we’ve only reviewed products and programs, but we’ve ignored the sites promoting them. Consider this review the first of many to attack sites like Mark Hodges’ that prey on others’ fears of getting scammed in order to scam them. Stick with sites like ours that don’t require any registration or up-front fees and you won’t have to worry about losing or wasting money.
