These are some snaps from around our new home in France on the 17th of March, 2015 (yesterday), which had a fantastic frosty morning. This video is me, opening our door, first time, onto the world. Such was the power of the natural world, we had to run straight out and start madly photographing before the sun rose too much and everything was revealed in its true transient nature.
Huge parts of the web are off limits to bulk snooping by Corporations and Governments. We are resetting the net!
That Was Epic!
Today, we took back privacy and blocked government surveillance. It’s still not possible to be totally safe on-line. But we have made it harder. Much Harder. A host of well-known internet names have not only pledged support for online freedom, privacy and personal security – they’re actually doing it right now! See below!
For myself, you can find me here for a few weeks. After this time, I will be still operating as a relay, but operating anonymously. There will be a different fingerprint and different ports – currently I’m using fairly standard ports. So why make it easy for governments and corporate snoops. Make it hard. Make it harder. Make bulk snooping a thing of the past.
A. Actually, yes. These results are effectively word association popularity stakes!!
n.b. Notice how “a quiet honourable man” doesn’t figure anywhere here…? See this link for those that have forgotten his own self-assessment.
Instead of “quiet, resolute and honourable” (his MP title), the public think of “Young, Angry, Evil, Wanker” when they think of Iain Duncan Smith.
Google and Microsoft agree measures to block abuse images
I didn’t think of these two blokes on the left first.
The first thing I thought of when seeing this headline in the news, was that the major search engines would block all tory mp and supporter images, since, in my mind, there’s nothing more abusive on the planet, having ruined the lived of millions both historically and in the present. “Lower than vermin” said Bevan, and he was right.
The real child abuse is to the vast hordes of little ones right here now, their parents paralysed with the real fear of poverty, homelessness and starvation. Zero hours contracts. No unemployment benefit if you’re deemed to be sick by some unqualified dork in an office. Working for Peackocks for nothing. IDS is one of the key foci and instigators of this terror.
Anyway, Google search has thrown up, in no uncertain terms, what are the most popular searches that include the lying bastard‘s name. That’s them above, repeated here again…. Young, Angry, Evil, Wanker
I’ve since redone the exercise for a few familiar names. The first few returns for each are shown:
Nick Clegg: David Cameron, wife, sad
David Cameron: young, Nick Clegg, wife, smiling
Dennis Skinner: young, angry, 1970, quotes
Margaret Thatcher: Evil, 2012, Margaret Thatcher fun…, 2013
Neil Kinnock: Glenys Kinnock, Tony Benn, Michael Foot, Spitting Image
Tony Benn: 2013, Quotes, Beard
Tony Blair: 1997, Bush, 2013, Black and White
Winston Churchill: WW2, Cigar, Quotes, A Child
Ed Miliband: Wallace, Young, Wallace Gromit, Jogging
Gordon Brown: Smiling, young, Obama, Face
..and can agree with Amanda that many of the search results are “very interesting“, as she says.
The claims from “anonymous” and others really should be chucked out for believability because they are unsubstantiated. But there still lie many interesting things. Things like the Google screen-shots which demonstrate links over long periods of time between a clutch of business entities, most of which include substantial volumes of complaints and dissatisfaction summarised by the word “scam”.
This linkage is there in the internet record, no matter how much business entities chop and change their identity, on-line or off-line.
Of particular interest is Amanda’s mention of a SellOffAuctions blog. I remember this when it started, but it’s no longer extant although this huge web comment stream gives a description of its genesis. However, a quick Google search on the first line of the text pulls out the two blogs in Amanda’s narrative.
Blog Similarity Search
TerraMarketing’s output is in this shot below, but the SellOffAuctions blog is now unavailable:
Spam The Wrong Way To Market Your Business
Yet the SellOffAuctions basic blog contents at start-up show up clearly in the Google cache of the web-page:
SellOffAuctions Blog – webcache
…and the original “Why Free Isn’t Better?” post from the old blog is here on yet another Willms blog:
What Does this Mean?
Well the thread at PAW makes plain that a high degree of website copying has been going on. A guy claiming to be from SellOffAuctions makes this point as an excuse to speed up the site set-up. Others have pointed out that if this is the case and there has been no collusion with SwipeAuctions, then the brief happy Willms’ outfit would have a very good case for copyright infringement.
Bid Auction Software – a Google Search
One extra spanner in the works that may block any suing is that on-line templates exist for the express purpose of setting up “Bid Auction” type websites! So of course they’d be similar! (That is a screendump of a Google search for Bid Auction software on the right!) This does not explain the similarity in the blog postings mentioned below, though.
Another extra spanner that might possibly confuse people over intra-website or intra-business linkages is the addition of the SellOffAuction.com domain (n.b. no trailing s). This was pointed out here.
It Is Very Interesting
It’s also very interesting that two blog posts from the Willms’ website stable found their way into the Google cache of a direct competitors blog, is it not? We now know that the blog was pulled, but in its entirety? Maybe after all, there was copying and the blog was simply pulled as being past its purpose. This happens all the time, not least with Willms’ myriad of blogs such as described here.
The WHOIS records for all websites above follow the usual patterns with the notable introduction of “Internet Holdings” into the mix (what happened to TerraMarketting?) and also the movement of some Willms domains to the Ashton Manning registrant noted a while back:
One Last Twist!
There is of course potentially, a plethora of SellOffAuction domains. the dot net one, is one and a full screenshot is on the left complete with a the biggest footer of exclusion clauses that I’ve ever seen!. Here’s what the top of the page looks like:
You’ll see that it contains a video, the very same video used by SwipeAuctions.com on their website and affiliate promotions. Also, it’s on selloffauctions.com too!
Even more interestingly, all the links supposedly go to SellOffAuctions.com if you look carefully – except they don’t!! They actually point to:
Leading Edge Marketing’s T&C contain the USA phone number 1-866-621-6886 which throw up a few complaints mainly from folks who don’t like porn. Personally, I can take it or leave it. I just don’t like thieving scammy bastards.
In this case, it’s an affiliate fuck up either by design or accident.
That’s about it. I can’t find direct linkages for now. There’s too much supposition and too little actual proof. Sechrists pop up and go. Blogs pop up and go. Websites pop up and go. So for now, that’s it. Inconclusive is my take on any connection.
Spring, last year, was when I first stumbled upon Pacific WebWorks (PWW) and their nefarious schemes. That was when I happened upon Google Treasure Chest, one of their many scams.
This then ballooned into a miasma of a web of crime which frankly astonished me.
Then, across the globe, many people fought against the scammers and there have been some small victories when the (mainly USA) authorities have used the law against them.
But as many scribes (e.g. Paul Schlegel) pointed out (e.g. here), it would, and it has all returned.
Okay Subject Please!
I’ve been trawling through the old posts on this website to see how the websites have changed. True, Google Treasure Chest has sunk to the bottom of the ocean, but many of the old websites are still around. They, the suck-in sites for the real ‘products’, divide, broadly, into two camps:
Fake blog sites
Fake News sites
Most of the fake blogs are gone, but most of the fake news sites are still around! What has happened is with some very quick coding, all the pointers go to new, non-google type sites. You can tell that the coding was quick because Google is still there in the hyperlink descriptions!!!
Initial information on a fake News Site from @Not Kevin is here. He said;
This is the fake news website here: http://www.businessgazette.net/finance/article-3910/ A screen-dump is shown on the right.
Hover your mouse over the ads or the links in the “Business Gazette” page. They are all the same and they all point to http://www.businessgazette.net/google/ – Notice the word “GOOGLE” !!! Compared to previously, the links are now slimmed down to one!
Now click the link and it redirects to a really annoying, automatically starting audio from someone called Ivan Fienney at this website: http://www.ivanblogsecrets.com/campaigns/rgah/IF_1_new.php?linkid=212144&subid=50519&subid2=65513 This link shows all the affiliate IDs etc.
However, if you strip them out, the page will still load from this address, http://www.ivanblogsecrets.com/campaigns/rgah/IF_1_new.php, or if you type in or click http://www.ivanblogsecrets.com
Ivan the Terrible
If you listen to the smarmy voice, he’ll claim that it’s a real established business, is NOT MLM, is not a Pyramid scheme etc etc. That’s him on the left.
Q. Where do his links go?
A. They go to something called a “Instant Wealth Program”. You’ll find that the linking URL is http://212144.msicourse.com/
Q. So who could it be?
A. It’s that slimeball Robert Allen, famed for his spam, famed for his bankrupty, famed for real-estate dodgy deals.
Now Ivan Fienney, if you can stand the audio, claims that it’s not real estate or a scam, and yet, as I made plain last year, in Robert Allen’s own claims he DOES use real estate in one of his “plans”!
If you listen to Ivan until the 8:00 mark, you’ll find that the whole “plan” actually is “posting links on Google”. Well what a surprise, I’m sure!
And there we have it. The “Instant Wealth Scheme” is the old, old “make money with Google” scheme again. Good ol’ Bobby Allen. Aaah.
Robert Allen – Multiple Streams of Income
The quaintly entitled website, http://212144.msicourse.com/, is indeed Robert Allen. He’s hidden it’s WHOIS details using Moniker Privacy Services. However, check out the screen-dump below and right (as well as Ivan’s above).
Multiple Streams of Income
He claims various things, like “as seen on TV” (the Aussie one I saw was investigative journalism where he refused to speak and the reporters were bundled out of the room!) or NY Times. Maybe they are all investigative reports into his scam activities? Maybe they’re all a figment of ol’ Bobby’s fevered imagination? Who knows?
Also notice that his website uses the famed “countdown timer”, a tactic abrasively commented upon in recent USA court cases against scammers. If, like me, you’ve been on the page too long, it’ll helpfully prompt you when “time runs out” – and then gives you a whole extra ten minutes to make up your mind. Gosh. It’ll even do it again – with another 10 minutes!
I think I’ll pass on all that, if you don’t mind.
Robert Allen proudly states that he uses Prosper Inc for his “services”. They, of course, are from Utah, see their contacts page here: http://www.prosperlearning.com/contact.html
Erroneous statement deleted. Too many prospers but all info gratefully accepted.. (SP)
Now see the following few examples of complaints and worries:
Last year’s post on Robert Allen is here. Robert G Allen, Grants, and a Credit Card Slimeball. From all of this, you can probably tell that he’s not on my Xmas Card list! To confirm this, see various links which expose ol’ Bobby for what he was, and still is!
