Fake Online Reviews of Spy Apps
Fake Online Spy App Review Sites are hurting the industry. The "reviews" are either copied directly from the spy app's main site, or the authors are paid to "create" a review for a product they have never used.
I've complained about this before on this site because I find it so frustrating trying to get real-life experience with the various programs.
And then mixed in with the fake review material are links using affiliate codes so that the website collects a commission for sending you to the affiliate that they just "rated so highly with their review".
What makes me even madder is when a website knowingly lists links fraudulently so you think you are going to another site, but are really going to the affiliate spy app site, where a cookie is being placed on your computer.
Here is an example:
Look at the paragraph beginning with "for which they can … ". The phrase "Qustodia – FREE parental control software" is a "hot-link". When you click the link, you think you will be taken to a FREE parental control software page. Everyone wants to check the free stuff first, right?
Only problem is, when you click on the link, you are actually taken to the link shown at the bottom of the screenshot — which is an affiliate link for the spy app "Mspy".
So this site has done two things really wrong:
First, their reviews are tainted, sales material of Mspy. They aren't from real users of the software. But they present them as "REAL".
Second, they have used misleading anchor text and link ID's to trick you into clicking on their affiliate link, so that they can stuff the Mspy cookie onto your computer.
