    They were paid to review MacKeeper, and did so without any real scrutiny.

     

     

    To All,

    Please find edited copies of 2 emails sent to me by Serge Sosnyak, at the time,  Marketing / PR of Zeobit LLC

    Just in case anyone has still a shred of doubt on how it works ...

     

    It was 2010. Shortly thereafter the marketing crap and scare tactics started and I did not pursue.  Nevertheless, if I recall correctly, the commission on sales was up to 30%.   To compare, Amazon gives you roughly 7%

    At 25 -30%, I know a lot of guys that will simply post online what they have been kindly "suggested" to post, or find, after that the said product is doing nothing short of curing cancer. 

     

    Fyi,  I still have the long headers, including IP's and all.  Just in case someone thinks they are made up emails. No, I will NOT post my email address: I am not Brendan.

    I also received similar messages. Like this one:

     

    Date: Tue, 8 Nov 2011 14:47:37 +0200
    Subject: paid review of our products
    From: Mike Clark
    To: [redacted]
    
    Hello Mr Reed,
    
    We are interested in some consulting services from you. Could you please
    get back with me and let me know what you would charge per hour for a
    software review.
    
    
    Thanks,
    
    Mike Clark

    When Mackeeper Software locks up your computer until you click on a paid service or force shutdown your system, it is NOT LEGIT.

    That has nothing to do with MacKeeper. It's one of many scam sites that lock Safari to the page by creating a continuous JavaScript loop.

     

    Force quit Safari. Hold the Shift key and relaunch it.
