Title: Warning: The fraud Chris Brooks on tour again
Post by: Kristallkugelwächterin on June 10, 2019, 08:22:39 AM
A warning email about the fraud "Chris Books" tells us about a new wave of attacks.

We constantly monitor the traffic to Allaxys to observe attacks as early as possible, and to block them. If necessary we block entire IP-ranges or the traffic from certain providers. We did that already in connection with OVH (in something called "Roubaix", wherever that might be) and Hetzner (somewhere in Germany). We are very strict and act fast and with ultimate force. If necessary we shut off the whole domain. We did that in the past several times.

The warning comes at the time that http://psiram.com is plagued by increasing numbers of registrations by dumb spammers. So there are new waves of attacks, in different ways. And some of the methods are old.

The warning email is from an ariplex.com background observer.

1st. email that showed up at certain accounts on ariplex.com servers:

[*quote*]
-------- Original Message --------
Subject: Broken link on ariplex.com
Date: 2019-06-01 18:19
From: Chris Brooks <cbrooks@madberry.com>
To: [honeypot]@ariplex.com

Hi [honeypot],

I noticed that you have a broken link to Compaq.com. That site was first
published way back in 1996 but unfortunately, it is no longer a working
website.

You link to Compaq on this page: http://www.ariplex.com/tina/tengines.htm

We recently published an article that explains what happened to
Compaq.  I think
it's an interesting story, and it could be useful to your readers.

Here's the article if you want to take a look:
https://www.pcguide.com/news/what-happended-to-compaq/

Would you consider swapping out the broken link for our article?

Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
-Chris

The honeypot email address is in no way associated with the TINA page the fraud Chris Brooks mentions.

2nd. email by the fraud Chris Brooks:

Hi again,

I wanted to check in and see if you got my note about the broken link on
your site.

Thanks!

Hey,

After emailing you, I realized this may not be your responsibility and
you're focused on other stuff.

Who's the best person on your team to talk to about this?

Thanks in advance!

The email is sent to [honeypot]. [honeypot] is, you already guessed it, a [honeypot].  8)

Anyone sending an email to [honeypot] demonstrates his stupidity by not realizing that [honeypot] is a [honeypot]. 8)


We do show the url the fraud Chris Brooks tries to inject. We are not afraid of that. So we do not hide it. We hit back by telling the public who Chris Brooks is and what he does.

What he is, is clear: He is a fraud. In the next post I will show some details about him.

In this piece, archived in the web archive, the fraud Chris Brooks confesses what he does: Write some garbage, then trick out people to make links, etc., to get traffic there, then sell the whole crap.

madberry.com, his domain, is really his, and it dates back to way before 2007, the date of the archived item:

http://web.archive.org/web/20071102224841/http://www.madberry.com/2007_03_01_archive.html

Not Yet Retitled

An analytics approach to SEO, link-building and monetization.
Friday, March 30, 2007
 
If only Ask.com's traffic was as good as their support...

Listen to this article Listen to this article as an mp3 file
I must say, I'm impressed with Ask.com's support folks. I bought 183 clicks from ask on a very competitive keyword. And the average user that came from their network of sites viewed exactly 1.0 pages. Not 1.06 pages, not 1.3 pages, 1.0 pages. During the same time period, the rest of the traffic that came to the site averaged more than 3 pageviews per user.

If you know anything about buying traffic from second tier sources, you know what this means: click fraud. (Someone set up a site, displayed my ads on their site, and then had a bot click on the ad. They got paid, Ask got paid, I lost money.)

Now, this is not a post about the evils of click fraud. As John Battelle would say, it's simply a tax, and if you want to play this game you pay the tax.

But Ask did the right thing when I complained. They researched it, they blocked traffic from that site, they refunded my money and they called me to explain the situation.

The most interesting lesson learned? If you want your ads to appear on Ask.com for competitive terms, buy AdWords ads. Ask backfills their own search results with AdWords. Think about that for a second.

This is no longer the Talkr Blog

Listen to this article Listen to this article as an mp3 file
So, it's official. If you want to latest news on Talkr, you'll need to go to the new official Talkr blog: http://blog.talkr.com.

I have completed Talkr's sale to LiveOnTheNet.com. You can read the press release here. That's a smart bunch of folks over there, and I think they're going to do great things with Talkr and with the other tools that they're working on.

If you're still reading, here's the sort of stuff that I'll be posting on this blog: experiments in search engine optimization, link-building, and improving monetization. If you have a sneaking hunch that the world already has enough blogs on these topics, you may be right. Here are a handful of blogs that I read religiously:

    SearchBlog (John Battelle)
    Matt Cutts
    JenSense
    linkbuildingblog.com
    ShoeMoney
    Cost Per News

Still reading? Really?

Okay, then I suppose I should tell you what I do. I build content websites that have old-fashioned, useful content on them. Then I drive traffic to them. And then I monetize that traffic. Doing that successfully is all about testing -- A/B testing, multivariate testing, back-of-the-envelope "does it feel like this works" testing. So if you continue to subscribe to this feed, that's what you'll find. Lots of analytics, lots of testing. If that gets your motor running, stay tuned. If not, point your browser to blog.talkr.com.

talkr.com ,the domain the fraud Chris Brooks in 2007 said he sold, is in the web-archive, archived already in 2005. Let us assume that in 2005 it was not sold and the address is his.

"phone: 603-686-5151
fax: 603-686-5185"


and

"78 Madbury Road
Durham, NH 03824
USA"

sounds like his address. "madbury" is a name he also abused.

Well, well, well... He isn't so very bright, isn't he? His portrait at Twitter is overwhelmingly convincing.  :P

The trick with "link exchanges" is so old. It is one of the oldest tricks ever. First, there is something at the page the victim is made to make link to. Then, suddenly, without any warning, the original content is gone and porn advertising or other shit is there. Since nearly nobody checks the sites one makes links to, the fraud will not be detected by the victims.

Yes, the old saying was proven right again: "Do not mess up with Antareans. The revenge of the galaxy will get you."  8)

Lets Get Brutal!

Some of the information I gleaned from Premier Services could be quite embarrasing should it be posted on the Internet. I initially did quit a bit of soul searching. Eventually I decided to post these tidbits based on the following facts:

    Premier Services has been flooding the Internet with millions of spams every week for five years.
    Premier Services has stolen a verified 1300+ accounts from stupid AOL users. The stolen accounts were used to send even more spam. Despite being threatened by AOL, account "fishing" is still a common practice at Premier Services.
    The stupid AOL users were probably accused of spamming and lost their accounts. They were only guilty of stupidity.
    Premier Services has been laughing all the way to the bank with their ill-gotten profits
    Premier Services sends porno and fraudulent emails to everyone from a 1st grader to grandma with no remorse.
    Premier Services has used "pump-and-dump" and insider stock trading to make money at someone else's expense.
    Premier Services has forged the domains of innocent companies on more than one occasion.
    If Premier Services had not forged my domain in the first place I wouldn't be creating this web page now.
    Premier Services has been threatened by AOL lawyers to stop spamming AOL at least once. It didn't work.
    Premier Services has already been hauled in to court by the S.E.C for pump-n-dump. That didn't work either.

So...without further delay........
