The reason people HATE ringtone affilaite marketers is because they signup through some sketchy affiliate who promises “Free” ringtones so they put in their phone number and get there pin code then start getting billed 10$ a month or so and are super pissed.
Well here is a great example of some of the scumbags in this industry.This site is for “zapsters” ringtones which is owned by CPA Empire CEO Scott Richter and powered by the Mobile Sidewalk ringtone company.
Goto the site and put in any phone number. Notice how the the terms and services mysteriously auto checks itself. Also the form AUTO SUBMITS itself upon typing in the last digit of the phone number and you are taken to the pin code confirmation page.
This is not even mentioning that the site is titled “Totally FREE !”
So remember a few weeks ago when we reported how the state of Florida was conducting an investigation on companies fraudulently promoting ringtone offers?
Here is a link to the case Which you see they are investigating Buongiorno USA, Inc.
Well ok so maybe these companies just dont know? Hrmm O rly ?? … Lets see the company under current investigation is Buongiorno USA, Inc. for fraudlently promoting ringtones and at that time the CEO was Burton Katz and guess who is Mobile Sidewalk’s current CEO? ya you guessed it its Burton Katz. So looks like same old fraud still works?
Ohh and I am sure this site will be taken down shortly after this blog post so may I present exhibit A your Honor:
You can see in the video I clicked back a few times just to re-verify what was going on. Pretty amazing the balls on these companies!
