- Free Sunless Tanning Butter
- Fake freebie:
- You have an important event coming up and want your skin to glow. How do you catch a tan before the big day? Use sunless tanning butter!There are countless number of sunless tanning products available to buy. You can choose whatever you like, but test if you’re allergic first. Apply a small amount on your wrist and see if everything is ok. That’s a common problem with many self tanner lotions.
Findings (What makes it fake?)
- Spam popup after submit (an unrelated offer pops up and wants you to fill it out. The scammers get PAID when you do! They’re tricking you into making them money.
- This has been around since around 2017, and nothing ever comes.
- There’s a LOT of ads on the site. After submit, there’s another ad that makes it seem like you need to click it. Not a spam pop-up like we always used to see. But, definitely sketchy!
- You can’t actually order from the company. Orders don’t work!
- You can submit the form without filling it in.
- Very unprofessional site.
- There’s no company information, and the only thing you’ll find about the product or company is freebie sites sharing it.
- They use the same advertising account (Google Adsense ca-pub-1372367034163035) as a freesamplesmail – the website. There’s also commonalities with freesamplesmail . com/webseo/webseo/- the user webseo is on these fake freebie sites and the sample site.
- What legit worldwide haircare company would also run a freebie site???
- White Naturals is a legitimate product sold on Amazon.
- Castic sells its caffeine soap on Amazon as well.
- Finally, the Savage Tanning oil really gives this one away! The terrible picture was also used on this Russian fake freebie ridden website (
http://www.cosmobrand.ru/akcii-brendov/110-krasota-i-kosmetika/5771-besplatnyj-probnik-masla-dlja-zagara) which uses this Google account ca-pub-5772248851468844. Do you really want to give your info to Russian hackers?
- Although the website in question, Skin Makeover Store, does not yet have Google ads running on it, I suspect when they do it will be an account tied to these other known scams. It’s happened many times.
- After submitting you’ll see this spam popup on their website:
You see this message because you’ve requested some free stuff from our partners.
What’s the fuss is all about?
You know, sending free stuff to a lot of people is costly. So here’s the kicker:
Click the link below to load an offer and complete it (fill out a form if you’re interested, install an app, etc.). If you do so, we will send you something useful (not the usual stickers or other crap) along with a freebie you’ve requested. It may even be much more expensive than the freebie.
There’s just one small catch to this offer. If you don’t have 10-20 minutes to spend, please don’t participate. You’ll only waste your time.
Advertisers that provide offers are paying for all the shipping & handling and the freebie cost. That’s why we deal with them.
Now, we have only so many free gifts available. If you’re seeing this, free gifts are in stock as of March 9, 2022 . But, you can miss your chance, of course. So, hurry up and click that link below…
