    Fake biz-opp names

    Regular REALSCAM.com contributor JustTooMuchTime aka Paul Schlegal has taken the time to collate a list of some of the most commonly used fake names being used to promote dubious "opportunities" and outright scams on his excellent WorkAtHomeTruth website

    Re: Fake biz-opp names

    Thanks, LRM. Hopefully, we can all keep adding to this.

    Also, realized that Yahoo's President and CEO is Marissa Mayer - although I'm sure that's how the scammers got the idea for the fake Melissa Mayer name.

    Re: Fake biz-opp names

    Ryan Stephens was a fake name used to promote the Online Home Careers scam. Apparently a REAL person named Ryan Stephens ended up getting lots of visitors to his site because he had that name:

    Mike Daughtery and/or Mike Dee - a.k.a. "Rich Janitor Mike" appears to be a fake name used on the Rich Janitor Site. I wrote about that site here back on August 1, 2010 - and the site is still being heavily promoted.

    Re: Fake biz-opp names

    Just got an interesting comment out of Singapore about the fake name associated with the Advancing Income Scam:

    "It’s not Melissa Johnson for us in Singapore… It’s Melissa Jung, and she’s also from Singapore!"

    Re: Fake biz-opp names

    I believe the name Brent Richard used at WorkAtHomeWarning .net and workingathomewarning .co.uk Work From Home Reviews.is a fake name.

    Brent certainly lives in a huge number of states and countries courtesy of his GEO-IP script.

    Kim Stevenson eMarketing Online System

    Kim Stevenson is another fake name that's been around for a while. I forgot all about the Kim Stevenson eMarketing Online System until somebody posted this comment on my warning a couple days ago:

    "Oi.. that Kim Stevenson!! She got me for $77.
    I am now $77.00 smarter! I now learned if there isn’t a # to call, and if there is and they don’t answer, don’t do it!!"

    Re: Fake biz-opp names

    Some new fake names:

    Alex Cooper - Fake reporter used on fake news sites

    Emily Stewart - used for work at home link-posting scams

    Kelly Frazier - used to promote link-posting scams

    Michelle Stewart - I think this is an older fake name that's resurfaced to promote link-posting scams

    Re: Fake biz-opp names

    THESE are instructions from the California Attorney General "In cases of statewide significance, we can bring legal action when substantive evidence is accumulated which indicates that a firm is systematically violating California law."
    So, everybody that has lost your money that you have paid to these fraudulent companies, should email complaints about these cheating companies to your state Attorney General. Email complaints to (for example) California State Attorney General https://oag.ca.gov/consumers
    Remember, governments won't investigate criminal fraud unless they receive thousands of complaints from us "substantive evidence needs to be accumulated which indicates that a firm is systematically violating California law."
    So get all your family, friends, and acquaintances, who have been cheated by these companies to file complaints.
    Copy and Paste this statement of help into Comments and Posts on all Social Network websites - twitter.com facebook.com plus.google.com and all the others.
    We can get some HELP if we file tens of thousands of complaints.
    Email us at> ec_progress1@gmail.com and let us know if you will(and have) filed complaints.
