Are you falling for Wazzub's promise to share money with you?

I have been doing research on it. The description of Wazzub on its homepage looks extremely vague. They are using the red and bold letters to highlight their points. So I felt suspicious. Isn't it weird that a company who says its going to launch a search engine has no official site of its own? Its using blogger's blog. Only one man is running it. I also read a hub. The investigator over there has enough points to prove that Wazzub is a scam. Did you end up signing up for it? They ask for first and last names along with the email address. Sure it looks harmless, but again in the west we are having a lot of mafia and other crime problems. I feel they can use other people's real names to carry out their gang activities without any trouble. This is just in my mind. What is your take on Wazzub?

The wabsite name sound suspicious; its homepage looks confusing and silly, what kind of person will come out with such a website name "Wazzub", like some kind of black art or a weirdo name. Apart from promising you guarantee making several hundred dollar a day through pyramid scheme with several layer of referrals, the owner also want to share money with you, it just seem like an absolute scam. No where in the cyber world the owner of a rundown website will share his profit with you out of the kindness of his heart, it is just bunch of bu*l-Shi*t. NO way i will sign up for this site, it just doesn't look and soubd right at all when you visit the webpage.

They are fake completely. There is an organization called @wassup. They train teachers to make websites. This name has been changed to wassub. Then they stole the name of an existing company and put Inc next to it. I just checked their fan page. It has 120,713. It seems many people really fell for it. They have not described their goal and company work on the info section of their fan page. That is another red flag.

I'd never bothered reading their blog before now. They sure do spend a lot of time on there trying to convince you that Wazzub isn't a scam, don't they?

How did you find out? You are spot on. Every time someone writes an article against Wazzub the so called website official writes a blog post as a retaliation. The funny part is that each time it is mentioned that their headquarter address does not make sense they come up with another new address.

So you have been reading their blog? I saw it and thought exactly like you. Yes, it has unprofessional air. They have been getting caught again and again. Yet they are still up with their weird mission. I couldn't help laughing about them. I suppose they haven't really heard of Mylot.

I never fell for it. It just sounds too good to be true. Even working offline or online doesn't pay you that much. How else could this site pay you?

It is completely scam. A blogger has been tracking their work for a long time. He has been mentioning how they are going around changing their address, godaddy info and much more. This does not sound right. I wonder what they are up to. They know that they are getting caught each time, yet they are still online promoting their fake website? That is weird.

You may be right that they are probably just wanting to get other users personal information. Sounds scary.

I ignore it. It is too good to be true. Counter in their site is really easy to manipulated (although I am not investigate it) But I do not join Wazzub.

You are right. Counter can be manipulated. I am no computer geek. But many years ago when I had Xanga blog I used to have a prediction counter on my site as a fun thing I offered to my friends. I changed all the numbers and points in it so that each time it gave a different reading. I did not even have any basic knowledge on java script back then.

I only have programming knowledge in old DOS. But whatever the platform, making counter like that is very easy. (I am not accused Wazzub, only express my thought of the counter)

I don't believe anything on the internet that promises loads of money without any effort or work. That's not how websites work. How do they get all this money to just give you anyway? I'm not signing up, because if something seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Yes, too good to be true. That's what I thought so too.

You are right. I have been asking the same question. Why would they want to share their revenue with users? Come on, it isn't easy to predict the success or failure of a site even before it launches. There are plenty of search engines out there. Many are simply still unknown to us.

I do not believe them. 1. I do not like their webpage design. 2. I cannot find any accurate description on how they can earn. 3. They said will not accept new member after launch, that is strange! As more site want more people, why not accept late comers? I do not know what is Wazzub going on but I will not sign up!

I am with you on this. Wazzub web design is not easy to digest. It totally looks like those get rich quickly sites. I am looking forward to reading more articles that expose them. Not sure as to what they want. However, I did notice that the investigator who published his detailed result on them got abused by some readers. That made me think a little harder.

Thanks for agree with me! I feel that indeed quite success on promotion? I think almost 90% of online earning worker know their site. Do not know how many % of them did signup?!

divineathena I know this so promosing site is scam as no one going to pay like this. Also who say that they will not accept the members after launch. This indicate they are telling like. I had seen many of the people going mad over them and they are investing money all rounds for getting referrals. I hope they didn't got spamed but what we can do....

But why on earth they need members? This is what I don't get. If they wish to spread the news about wazzub they should get news sites to publish articles on that. Isn't that the best way to get users? Like you said, they will not even accept members after launch. That is a total red flag.

surely you aren't they only one that feel many doubts about this system as well..in reality i considered to join it but it sounds like a scam because it is not really clear about their view as regards online earnings and also because they are still in pre-lauch which normally turn into a scam!!
