What Is It?
This is a scam review site. They review home business opportunities like MLM, network marketing, internet marketing, and other “work from home” opportunities, also known as “biz ops”
Someone has put a lot of hard work into ScamXposer.com, and I agree with many of the reviews. But their top recommendations are clearly scams, so I do not think you should follow their advice. It looks to me like the owner started out as a legit site, and somewhere down the line gave up, and just started recommending “hot products” or whatever paid the most.
What I liked
It's clear to me that ScamXposer has been around for a few years. They have TONS of reviews on their site. They do a pretty good job of exposing some scams and misleading products out there.
The layout of their website is pretty good too. It says clearly whether the product is recommended or not, gives reasons why, and even links to related products. Some of these scams are promoted under different product names, URLs, and even fake personalities!
They also do MLM reviews. I hate doing MLM reviews because I think these businesses are created simply to make money for the “top of the pyramid”, so I give these guys some credit for having the patience to do it.
ScamXposer also has a huge list of fake review sites! This is impressive, because there are quite a few of them. I've reviewed some, like Work At Home Authority , but I haven't found anywhere near 66 of them!
What I didn't Like
But there is a huge problem with ScamXposer. They promote scams! I was shocked the first time I notice their Top 5 Recommended Internet Businesses.
ScamX seems to change his recommendations frequently. These were his recommendations about 1 year ago, and has since cycled through many. As of Jan 1 2014, here are his new recommendations:
How can someone change their recommendations every few months? It's probably because the products have now gone broke or at least the hype has died down. I have been recommending the same product for over 1 years now, and actually using it for over 4 years. Many people believe I only make my money by “recruiting” but the majority of my income is made by following my own advice.
I have done reviews of 3/5 of them, and none of them received good scores. In fact, these are some of the most popular scams I've reviewed. It seems that these products were chosen purely as a way to generate income, not because they are actually good products. Here are my reviews.
About his #2 spot: this thing called Online Payday System, let's use some detective work to figure out if it's a legit opportunity. After some research I discovered that it's not actually a product, but a combination of 3 other products: ZNZ One, ZNZ Big Cash, and Empower Network.
Strike One! We already know EN is a scam (link above).
Then Chuck Marshall says that you wont' have to pay for anything. But OPDS will cost you some money each month. Then you have to pay for both ZNZ products, and EN will cost you $45 per month, plus around $5000 to purchase all of their products. You MUST purchase EN products in order to get credit for any sales.
Strike Two! This is getting really expensive.
Now let's take a look at the image below.
It turns out that ZNZ truly isn't MLM, but it is a complete waste of time. In fact, I wouldn't even consider ZNZ a business. It's a hobby.
Strike 3! I hate misleading advertisements.
I have not reviewed the #1 rated product (Team Vinh), but you can probably guess that I'm very skeptical. I did watch an introduction video, and it's clearly some kind of MLM related thing. I'm not impressed. I will update with a review at some point
ScamXPoser has since updated his top recommendations, and
now recommends Freebie Money Printer (This recommendation has since been removed. How fickle can you get?!) As you might have guessed, it's not free, and it doesn't print money. On the contrary, my top recommended products have not changed since since Jan 201 (except to add new discoveries), and have personally used my #1 recommended since 2010….going on 4 years now.
Unfortunately, ScamXposer disappoints. They were on the right track to developing a legit resource of online scams. I used to use them frequently to see what others were saying about certain products that I review, but now I'm more careful to trust their recommendations.
Update 2017: Since I wrote this review, they have updated their #1 recommendation to be the same as mine! I suppose they figured out that longevity and trustworthiness of a company is important!
Most products like this last just a few short months then disappear. That's the nature of hype in the business of making money online.
The only system I've seen last more than a decade is the same place where I learned how to start an online business. They've been around teaching newbies to make money online since 2006. You can join for free and start your first website in the next couple minutes
However, some of their Top 5 recommendations are outright scams, promising quick riches and fast cars. One example is “Daily Income Method” from a guy called “Mack”. My #1 rule is if the person promotes their business by driving a sports car and depositing checks into the bank on video, it's probably a scam. Yeah, it looks cool, but it's not realistic for most people.
This program he promotes is basically a funnel for the joining MCA, which you may have run into if you're researching popular business opportunities. This guy also promotes Empower Network and Aspire, which are known pyramid schemes so you can make your decision on whether or not those are trustworthy programs to promote.
