    Exclamation NEWS!! Scamlandpro has redirected links from Real Scam

    Please notice!! If you click on a link that should take you to a particular place in Adland/Scamland, you will be redirected to a Splash Page. DO NOT LET IT DISCOURAGE YOU!! Just hover your mouse over the link, right-click, copy shortcut, open a new Window or Tab in whatever browser you use and in the address link (page that you want to go to), right-click and paste into that line. It will take you directly to the link.

    If my instructions are not clear enough, please contact administration for another way around this. I am sure it can be done, techs will just have to figure it out.

    In the meantime, they cannot stop RealScam for continuing to expose their den of scammers.

    I think RS admin have corrected a lot of the links "scratchy". However I can't understand your instructions but that is not your fault. I have worked all day and I am nearly falling asleep at the keyboard. All my links connected with Maurice Bernier and F5Mmillionaires club still get redirected. It might be different, if I used IE.

    I asked GOF to have a look at it and see if he could help figure out what the scum at Scamland have been up to.

    Does this constitute hacking or an attempt to hack into any RS or any of RS users computers? If so please can admin tell us the best places to report the matter.

    Re: NEWS!! Scamlandpro has redirected links from Real Scam

    This is an attempt by Scamland/Adland to divert our links to their Splash page (Hello page). I am not sure what it can be called. The links we have posted work but you cannot just click on them in RS, you have to copy the link into another window or page before you can go there. Whatever browser you use, it should work. They have been able to REDIRECT links from RealScam to their Hello page.

    It will not stop RS from being able to send people to these scams. I suggest a Facebook Page for RealScam, they cannot and will not block Facebook or any other site with lots of traffic. It is not just our IP's being blocked it is all of RealScam.

    I think we should exploit this. Why does Adlandpro feel they have to block Real Scam links? This should be very interesting to any government agency looking into Scam, Fraud, and illegal programs. We are exposing them and they want to stop it, WHY???? They have something to hide!! Report, Report, Report!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You are right "scratchy."

    If I hover my mouse over the link, I get the option to Copy Link Location. If I paste that into the address bar and open it in a new window, I find the original.

    I am disgusted by ex Adlanders who are prepared to tolerate those who are helping their top scammers like Maurice Bernier, Jill Bachman, Carol Salisbury, Kathleen Vanbeenkom, Mary Evelyn Simpson, Jim Allen etc by doing nothing. SBM has done her best to bring this cyberspace sewer down and we should be helping her.

    It look as if the scammers have had help from inside RS and the person or people concerned need to be brought to justice. If this is not a hacking what is it? Why do we have to tolerste those who know Jill Bachman and Carol Salisbury were huge Andy Bowdoin earners and have not got the spherical objects to do something to help show these two bits of scum up for what they really are.

    There IS no "damage"

    I did find a virus on my computer. It was one that said that Adobe Flash Player updates were available but AVG picked it up as potentially dangerous. Please take care when you get the message to update that particular program.

    I did not intend to cast aspersions on any member of RS whom we know can be deemed trustworthy but people like Maurice Bernier and Kathleen Vanbeenkom have joined us as RS members and they are members who are intent on harming RS. Have either of them been banned here?

    P2P, it is not "hacking", a server can be set to redirect links from a certain server, ip, or site to another page in their website. I am not that technical but I do run my own website and know that I can do the same. We have upset a lot of apple carts over in Scamland and they want to try and block some of our efforts. It is nothing within RS that caused it, as a scam-fighting community we need to pull together. I realize there are only a few that support our continuation of exposing Scamland but as SBM has said our threads get a lot of traffic so that means people are looking and reading.

    Something else I thought of last night, you know Adland has a pay-per-click deal, so whomever this hello page belongs to is cashing in on the traffic they are receiving. Think about that one a few minutes...

    As LRM has stated, let's just stay calm and as long as we notify others as how to make the links work, it will stop most of the traffic going to the Hello page. All the other links work that go directly to another website. I realize your frustration but others have to do what they think best and will speak when the time comes to speak. Hopefully, justice will be served in the long run.

    Thanks for explaining that "scratchy." I was really concerned that we had been hacked.

    I am still confused though. I had a virus which may have caused some problems which other RS members have not experienced. I have run all tests and they say that the virus is healed but I still find nearly all links are directed to Scamland's hello page. The most recent which you put on post 311 on the "1 Stop for All Scams" thread lead to the " Hello Page" on my computer.

    Are other members able to view this correctly?

    I have invested a great deal of time (which is effectively money ) in order to try and expose what goes on there. You and SBM has unearthed damning evidence against them and it does disgust me that others who know a lot of the people mentioned will not lift a finger to help the place get shut down.

    I have been online since 1997 and I have never seen a site where there is so much nauseating porn, scam promotion and insalubrious characters as Scamland. It is hard to be encouraged to carry on while others sit on the fence.

    How do you know what "OTHERS" are doing ??

    Have you spoken to the "OTHERS" ??

    How many "OTHER" possible reasons can you come up with to explain why the "OTHERS" don't interfere with your work "OTHER" than the fact they are "sitting on the fence"

    P2P, remember when you got that letter from Bogdan's supposedly lawyer, many members went to bat for you. Some even joined over in Scamland and took some bashing really well before their posts were deleted and they were banned from forums. I am thankful for the support I had when my name showed up on that nasty website. There are just times it seems you are fighting a losing battle but we have made progress, lots of it!! Maybe they are not sitting on the fence, maybe they just feel we are doing such a good job they don't need to help us!

    We need to spread out a little more and get into some other sites, post links there that will go directly to the place we want to link to. I have already done so in some and will get around to others.

    Cheers!

    I am very grateful for the support which I received over that stupid threat to sue me "scratchy." I believe that RS is doing a great job showing Scamland up for what it is.

    However I do feel very upset about the reluctance of people who have been Adlandpro members to be more proactive in their attempts to get the filthy sewer closed down.

    I have had a bad day with my computer. I have got rid of the virus which was redirecting all Adland pages and just bought a registry cleaner which was recommended by my computer systems engineers as the only one which is compatable with their system but it will not run. I am quite certain that the virus was not random and I can not help feeling depressed about people who will not speak out about Jill Bachman and the rest of the scum over there.

    Why are they so scared of Bachman and crew?

    It is like the cheating soccer coach who got suspended for cheating and viciously attacked me because I hadn't supported his nonsense. He blamed me for getting him caught. He vilified me and demanded I leave so he could violate his suspension and continue to coach behind the scenes. Some parents have supported this lying cheater. I am not fighting with any of them. I pursued the proper channels in the recreational soccer league and quietly walked away from the bad situation. I am not sweating what the remaining parents are doing. I continue to post about my experience and speak out.

    We may not be able to shut down Scamland and many dishonest people will continue to support that bunch, but we have made folks aware of the scams and garbage there. I take great satisfaction in knowing I have spoken out! People having total apathy is sadly the norm. When our coach got suspended I begged all 16 other families to pull together and have a parent attend the coaching clinic and step up. Not one parent would help. I attended the coaching clinic alone while the suspended coach caused all sorts of discord behind the scenes. We cannot fix that. We can only provide information and support and let folks make their own decisions. We mustn't make their support of scams, lying and / or cheating our problem. Celebrate what you can do!

    You are right SBM. We have spoken out and made people aware of what goes on in that sewer.

    It is hard to take the apathy of others but I have had a "bad computer day" and nearly driven myself crazy trying to figure out what the machine is doing. I got my registry cleaner installed so that should help the system be more amenable in the future.

    Let's hope you have a better week, P2P. Remember sometimes those registry cleaners can cause more problems, so be selective in what you want cleaned.

    I am with you SBM, let's celebrate what we have accomplished!!

    I don't use reg cleaners, except the free CCleaner. I know that can't mess up the system (and it saves all the changes just before it does it so you can undo it).

    I use the free Comodo Firewall and it works pretty well so far. You can try their "hardened" web browsers, modified versions of Chrome and Firefox, supposed to be more secure.

    I have used CCCleaner but it changed a lot of things in my registry that caused problems, so I am careful with it now. Thank you for the information though, it is very helpful. Your quote above is very correct and they do!

    That is certainly true about the large majority who are active in Scamland now now but there are also a lot of genuine people who believe that the case against Bachman and Salisbury is unproven.

    The Bachman Salisbury duo worked hard to bury evidence that they made a packet from Bowdoin and that they had formed a partnership to build a huge downline. It took time to unearth it but a lot of evidence against them is available in these threads.

    Re: NEWS!! Scamlandpro has redirected links from Real Scam

    I saw that Eagle was on Skype so I contacted him. He is on holiday and had no idea that BoggyBoy has pulled this trick on RS. He has promised to look into what is happening when he returns.

    It looks as if only some members of RS have had their computers effected.

    Please can more people come in and comment as to whether they are able to view links from Scamlandpro. My AGV antivirus software has healed the virus that may have caused my computer to be effected.

    BoggyBoy is getting really concerned about the damage we are causing his filthy sewer. I opened a new thread about Scamland today and I would like to know if other RS members can see the link or if it is my computer and Saras which have been specifically targeted.

    We have certainly shone a harsh light on Boggy's sewer. There is no reason to worry about about viruses. I don't have any evidence whatsoever that anyone has had any problems due to any of this.

    It is not surprising some Adland links resolve to a hello page. I lost 4000+ posts on Scam and those links go to a page that reads no thread specified. Let's get back to exposing the scams and scamsters there and not sweat this little stuff. Kudos to all who are fighting the good fight.

    You said that a lot of the links on your computer had been directed to BoggyBoys Hello page SBM. That is was what both Sara and I wanted to know. I had a virus that did very strange things and I have never known anything like that before. The virus was a dialogue box telling me to download the latest Adobe flash software. my AVG picked it up as a threat and healed it. I can not help thinking that it was not picked up at random.

    It is obvious that BoggyBoy is doing his best to cause problems for those who show him up for what he is and those of us who do not have the technical knowlege to diagnose faults which are not detected by our security software
