ScamXposer Is Itself A Scam – Here’s Why

Recently I've been reviewing a lot of products and services online in order to better help my site visitors. I know not everyone will end up using my own services, but I want to make sure that if you do go elsewhere, you're not going to your doom. The process of reviewing these products has led me time and time again to the same scam review site, Scamxposer.com, and I've come to the incredible conclusion that Scam Xposer is itself in fact a scam. It reviews products, concludes that they are legit, and gives you a referral link.

By lying to you, they're making money from you.

Why Is Scam Xposer A Scam?

I first noticed that there could be an issue with ScamXposer when I was researching for my Team Vinh review. I had already come to the conclusion that Team Vinh was a scam, and was gathering more evidence. So when I saw that David Harris of ScamXposer had given it 5 stars, calling it a “one of a kind business opportunity”, I was confused.

There were plenty of comments from others saying thanks for the great review, but no comments on the actual product experience.

I was starting to think these were fake comments, designed to add some gravitas to the original review. I left my own comment, questioning the legitimacy of the program, and of course, it didn't get published. Even the “user rating” is fake, as there's no way  for any users to add their own product rating.

The whole review was poor as well. Only a brief attempt at explaining the product was made, and it was mostly along the lines of “this is a great, legit product that will make you money, sign up here.”

There's nothing wrong with reviewing a product and using your affiliate link to send people to sign up. If you've written a fair, thorough review, you deserve a commission. The problem with ScamXposer is, he doesn't do fair reviews, he doesn't even really check out the products. He just chooses the popular/high paying products, and gives them 5 stars.

After my suspicions were aroused, I decided to check out the other top rated programs on this “Scam review” website. I was pretty shocked with what I found.

What's Wrong With This Picture?

Simply put, David Harris is promoting products that are not worthy of real promotion. Empower Network is the biggest scam on the Internet right now and deserves ZERO stars, Project Payday is another known scam, as is Work From No Home. I've not yet investigated Freebie Money Printer, but the name doesn't exactly sound promising. Of these products, only Internet Income University is NOT a scam, but even then it's not worthy of 5 stars.

What ScamXposer does is, review these products, give them favorable scores, and make a commission when people sign up via the affiliate link included in the review.

Again, there's nothing wrong with making a commission off your reviews, but when you lie about it, there's a big problem.

Unmasking The Charade

ScamXposer does a pretty good job of pretending to be legitimate. A lot of work has gone into the charade, but by doing a little bit of investigating, it's easy to see through the lies.

ScamXposer Exposed

  1. Promotes Scams – I've already mentioned how scams get 5 star ratings here, which is the biggest sign something fishy is going on.
  2. Rarely Gives Details – Most positive reviews don't go into much detail about products, just saying that they are great.
  3. Gives Negative Reviews – In order to seem legitimate, David does give many negative reviews. These are all Paid Survey, Research and Testing products though, anything else gets a thumbs up, despite it being a scam.
  4. Money Saved Banner – The banner on the homepage (see below) states how much money people have saved thanks to the website. This is an arbitrary number though, picked at random. It doesn't update, and is just a JPG image. There's no way to back up that statement.

Who Is David Harris?

The good thing about Google Authorship is it's pretty easy to track down the website owner. David Harris (if that's who he really is), has a Google plus account that isn't very active. In fact, only about 150 people are following him. Now, in no way am I saying that the number of followers you have is a sign of your quality. No way is the Internet a popularity contest.

But…when you yourself are following over 1k people, and only 150 people follow you back, despite you operating a HUGE scam review website, you have to wonder why. Is it because everyone knows your reviews aren't accurate?

I really don't want to speculate too much on this, but it did raise a few eyebrows.

I also found many other sites with reviews and complaints of ScamXposer, and there's no doubt in my mind that it's a scam. Be very wary.

So Now What?

In future, when checking for product reviews online, be wary of anything from ScamXposer. I'd recommend you check out IveTriedThat.com or OneMoreCupOf-Coffee.com instead. Both of these guys work hard to fully investigate products and scams as much as they can, and really have saved a lot of people a lot of money.

  1. Nice review of yet another scam site that fluffs themselves using shady and deceitful techniques. Thanks for the heads up to avoid their recomendations.

    1. Yeah, I guess we have a natural tendency to assume that someone who claims they are exposing scams is going to tell the truth, but if you look around online you can find countless cases of ScamXposer complaints.

  2. He’s got a huge site, so it’s a pity that he’s costing people money with positive reviews of scam products. I think he could just as easily help people by getting some REAL reviews of a few good companies, even if all the other negative ones were fake. I mean, come on! At least know what you recommend!

    1. Right. A lot of the negativity toward the site online is that he receives commissions for his reviews. There’s actually nothing wrong with that in my opinion, with the caveat that you must be honest. Saying you save people money while causing them to get ripped off is a bit different from actually saving them money and getting a commission for helping them.

  3. Hello, Bryon. I’m a student from UK trying to work part-time on internet. Can you tell me the some good ways earn reasonable money from online.

  4. Wow, Bryon!

    All this time I thought that ScamXposer was a legitimate website.

    I even thought that David Harris was a member of Wealthy Affiliate. If you were to check his website now, you would see that he has Wealthy Affiliate as his #1 recommendation.

    As a matter of fact, here is the list of his top recommendation now:

    Wealthy Affiliate
    Project Payday
    Survey Club
    My Business Venture
    Home Job Stop

    I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate and it really offends me when I see someone smearing the image.

    Thank you for the review.

    Jason.

    1. It’s still #1 and My Business Venture moved up to #3 and this is what I found after looking up Project Pay Day on the site

      Wealthy Affiliate
      Daily Income Method
      My Business Venture
      Evergreen Wealth Formula 2.0
      Top Secret Business

      Project Payday Review *** PROJECT PAYDAY IS NOW OUT OF BUSINESS *** by David Harris “Project PayDay” was a leading online home business that I used to have success with, but it’s now out of business. Please disregard the rest of this review as they are no longer in service… As I continually state, the businesses I recommend in the Recommended Businesses page are ones that I have tested and succeeded with and Project Payday was among the top

  5. I joined scamxposer last week, read something about an op he’d recommend , daily paycheck , I emailed him asking more but onever replied back, then I went back on on Sunday to see a business op I liked the sound of until I began reading & it sounds exactly the same as daily paycheck , can’t remember the name so again I emailed him saying it sounded the same & what do you know still no reply, I was going to delete my account but thought I’d check the site out more to see this saying it’s a scam itself . Now I’m definitely going to delete my account

  6. The more I read about home-based online jobs, the more confused I get. It is increasingly becoming a headache for me. Now to make things worse, I am being told that ScamExposer is by itself a scam. Tomorrow, I may learn that this write-up criticising ScamExposer is a scam too. There are layers upon layers of opinions, which lead one to nowhere. What am I supposed to do?

    Is there anyone who can guide me to authentic, legit online jobs proven and trusted? I shall be really grateful for that.

  7. I posted my comments here yesterday, which have not been published. Should I assume that this site too is a scam?

    1. Not really. You posted your comment on a 4 year old article on a Friday evening and checked back on Saturday morning to see if there has been a reply or not. Sometimes it just takes more time to get to replying.

      As for your original comment, not really sure what you want me to say? You’ve answered your own question really by saying that you have no idea how to tell if a site is legitimate or not. This post was created to point out that even ScamExposer is suspicious, since it promotes obvious scams. In the post I’ve explained my logic and how I did the investigations. All you really need to do is learn how to do your own research, and you’ll get a lot better at finding legitimate opportunities.
