Consumer Daily Scam Reviews

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.

How to Sue in Small Claims Court

Small claims court is often the best option available to enforce your rights against a deceptive or abusive company. Filing fees are much lower than in higher courts and the procedural and evidentiary rules are relatively relaxed and simple. Indeed, the small claims court judges themselves will typically apply the rules appropriately and fairly and will interpret the legal issues necessary to rule in your case. In most cases you will simply tell the judge your side of the story and he will do the rest. The process is designed to be as simple and consumer-friendly as possible.

To start your small claim court case, your first step is to determine which small claim court is most appropriate to hear it. In a contract dispute the appropriate court will be located in the county in which the contract was entered or the work was to be performed. In injury cases, the small claim court used will normally be where the injury occurred. If the case involves a real property dispute the proper court will typically be the county in which the property is located. If you are unsure, consult your state’s rules governing small claims procedure to determine the appropriate venue for your case.

Your next step is to download and complete the following forms from the court’s website:

  • Small Claims Court Complaint (sometimes entitled Affidavit)
  • Summons
  • Military Affidavit

Once the forms are completed, file the Small Claims Complaint or Affidavit and Military Affidavit with the court. You will pay a filing fee at that time and the court will issue the Summons and return it to you.

Your next step is to serve a copy of the Complaint and Summons on the Defendant. Some small claims courts will have a box or shelf where you can place a copy of the Complaint and Summons to be served but, if not, process servers are easy to find online. Once the process server delivers the documents to the Defendant he will notify the court that the Defendant has been served and send you a bill. Pay it quickly, it is money well spent. You cannot serve the Defendant so do not try. A disinterested person of suitable age must serve process and certify under oath and penalty of perjury it has properly served the Defendant. Your case dies if this doesn’t occur properly. In limited circumstances you can serve the Defendant by mail but check your local rules for the exact requirements. Again your small claims court case dies if this is not done correctly.

Your next step is to prepare for trial. Make three copies of all documents on which you plan to rely; one for you, one for the Defendant, and one for the court. Make a checklist of your talking points and important facts but do not waste any time or effort preparing a detailed script. You will not need it.  If you have witnesses make sure they are coming to the trial. If needed, you can have the small claims court issue a subpoena to make them appear but only do so if the witness is openly hostile and you think they probably won’t show up. Seriously, you will almost certainly be sleeping on the couch if you subpoena your spouse.

At trial, simply tell the small claims court judge your story.  Use your checklist to be sure you don’t forget any important facts. The judge will ask you and your witnesses questions and he expects very concise and specific answers. He does not want a long monolog detailing every nuance of your feelings about the situation. The judge only wants the facts important in deciding how to apply the law to your case.  He will know what questions are important and what issues on which to focus. If you think he is missing an important fact or issue tell him what you think he needs to know, but again, keep it brief.

Once he has heard from the parties and witnesses the judge will then make his ruling from the bench.  On rare occasions he will take your case under advisement and issue a ruling in a couple of weeks but doing so is extremely unusual so don’t expect it. If you win your case, the court will provide you with a judgment form. Send a copy to the Defendant by certified mail even if he appeared in court. You want proof he received it. The Defendant will typically have up to 30 days to appeal the small claims court judgment but you can begin collecting on the judgment immediately if you wish.

Now that you know how to take a case to small claims court you can be your own advocate. In many cases where deceptive and fraudulent sales practices are involved, however, you may want to consult with a consumer law attorney to determine whether or not a particular statute can help to maximize your damage award. In consumer law cases statutory damages are frequently higher than your actual damages. It is an important detail you do not want to miss.
