The Internet has several websites under the Consumer Daily banner that each purport to provide consumers with real strategies and tips to save money. Are these websites consumer-friendly? Are these websites helpful? The answer to both questions is an unequivocal and resounding NO. The Consumer Daily review websites purporting to be news or unbiased review sites are scams. No question about it.
What is the Consumer Daily Scam
The Consumer Daily scam is a series of websites designed to look like legitimate news stories or reviews about specific services and products. Instead of providing fair and honest consumer reviews however, these Consumer Daily scam review sites provide sales pitches pretending to be unbiased news articles and consumer reviews. Indeed, these Consumer Daily scam review sites are actually selling the products and services it is pretending to review. To me such dishonesty is a scam.
Consumers click on these website ads looking for tips on saving money but are instead sent to fake reviews with links to purchase various products and services. Consumers are not provided real, unbiased, or uncompensated reviews. In return for the sales pitch, the Consumer Daily scam websites receive a commission for deceiving the consumers into believing they are getting a special deal or inside trick into saving money. Consumer Daily is basically an affiliate of each of the companies it pretends to review. The scam is nothing more than paid affiliate advertising veiled as news or reviews and it is dishonest to say the least.
How to recognize a Consumer Daily Scam Review
Consumer Daily scam reviews are actually quite easy to spot. Any website banner advertisement that talks about a “trick,” “loophole,” or “secret” for saving money on something is your first clue. Some Consumer Daily scam ads talk about how insurance companies hate a certain trick or how some local housewife in your area made more money in one month working part time from home than you earn in a year. It’s all a lie. There is no special trick and there is no worthwhile work-at-home opportunity at the end of that rainbow. Click on the ad and instead you will see nothing more than a page full of paid links to buy products and services that give a commission to the Consumer Daily companies. They are literally fishing for suckers.
No legitimate review website will ever accept payment in exchange for a review. Ever. That is the whole point of legitimate reviews. They are supposed to be unbiased, unsolicited, and uncompensated. If you ever read a review and it provides you with a paid link to purchase that product or service you shouldn’t be surprised when that review is favorable to the company. It is all a scam. Making such advertising appear to be news or unbiased discussion is what separates legitimate advertising from a Consumer Daily scam.
How to Avoid a Consumer Daily Scam Review
Avoiding a Consumer Daily scam is actually quite easy. Don’t click on a banner advertisement that appears to be a review or news article. If you do, pay close attention to the message to see if it is highly favorable to the company being discussed. Then look for the paid link or telephone number to buy the product or service. That paid link or phone number is your best clue that you are being scammed.
Another good clue is what product or service is being sold. Typically, the Consumer Daily scam review sites sell the same services you normally see saturating Internet affiliate advertising. These services include car insurance, mortgage loans, debt consolidation plans, penny auction gambling scams, credit repair, and fitness plans to name a few. Yes, there are legitimate companies out there but the ones who have to force-feed you their advertising every time you open a web browser are best avoided. Use some common sense here. If a company calls a product or service a miracle or makes wild claims that seem unbelievable and then provides you a paid link to buy the product or service it just pretended to review, run away. The old adage stands firm. If something seems to good to be true it probably is too good to be true.
Legitimate companies never make wild claims. If a company brags about its miracle product that helps you lose 75 pounds overnight, makes you $6000 a month by working from home, and saves you $300 a year in car insurance all at the same time is lying. Legitimate advertising doesn’t make unsubstantiated claims and doesn’t pretend to be anything other than advertising. In contrast, the Consumer Daily scam review websites are not legitimate. No matter how you cut it, pretending to provide consumers a product review that you are paid to provide is a scam. Run away and don’t be a victim.
