My Clean PC Review – MyCleanPC.com is a TV Scam
Last Updated on Wednesday, 28 March 2012 08:08 Written by Mike Tuesday, 10 January 2012 11:12
It’s pretty bad to see this company My Clean PC preying on innocent consumers. They constantly change names and try to swindle people out of money for a worthless product. Buyer beware MyCleanPC is out to TAKE your hard earned cash. This company advertises on cheap national ad slots in bulk, heck for $5,000 I can put my ad out 250 times in front of 2 Million or so eyeballs. Usually late at night and on the more affordable cable networks like comedy central and home and garden TV.
I wrote about this company in early 2010 My Clean PC operates under several different monikers which are all registered to Cyber Defender, You can find more like MyFasterPC , MaxMySpeed and a host of other completely useless and down right rip off scams. Each of them, recognized and known as a source of Malware.. Since I take notice of who and why people come to my site. Noticing the incoming keywords of My Clean PC, I decided to put up another warning with the hopes that people do not succumb to this scam being perpetuated on National TV.
Read this article and some of the comments to understand why My Clean PC should not be trusted. If your PC is running slowly there are several products out there than can do a pretty good job of cleaning your PC. I recommend a combination of Super Antispyware, Malware Bytes, and Spybot seek and destroy. I have used these products and HiJack This, successfully as a Level 4 field tech for Bright House networks Road Runner High Speed online customers. During the 5 years that I worked there I ran over 7500 Service calls.
Be Warned My Clean PC is not worth it. Try AVG, or MalwareBytes first. Then if that does not work take it to a pro. Find them on CL and through WOM. Geek Out!

Another SCAM Alert:
It is amazing how many of these sites will pop up. MyFasterPC.com will make my third article warning people against the same company that sells junk software like these other posts; maxmyspeed.com and mycleanpc.com.
Apparently they think they can change a few keywords to stay ahead of the game.
Watch out for this one readers. This has been advertised in several prominent media outlets (I just watched this on comedy central) as being able to fix any pc. It can “make a 7 year old computer blazingly fast, even faster than a new computer”. This is just plain horse pucky.
Do yourself a favor and stay far far away from this product or any product that makes such ridiculous claims. If you are experiencing a slow computer, download malwarebytes and super antispyware. Update them both and let them run…preferably in Safe Mode. Another good program worth mentioning is the venerable and most awesome Spybot search and destroy available form safer-networking.org or this direct link.
Be warned the WOT and McAfee both list mycleanpc.com finallyfast.com and doublemyspeed.com, myfasterpc.com and cleanmypc.com as severe threats. Closer inspection reveals that this web site is owned by a company called cyberdefender ( a known spyware company )
Have an experience you would like to share…leave a comment so other’s may avoid these mycleanpc.com types of traps.
Make Sure you share this with your social networks, get the word out,

Here’s the deal, they want you to download there crappy software so that they can up-sell you a cleaning service. This is a service that does not work worth a crap, it will actually cause more problems than it will fix. It will even provide over 400 warnings on a clean install of windows.

Cash 4 Gold – Review Don’t get ripped off.
Last Updated on Monday, 26 September 2011 07:37 Written by Mike Monday, 26 September 2011 07:36
You’ve probably seen the commercials on TV. Cashing in on the unwary during a down economy is making the owner’s of this scam a LOT of money. Here is just how their scam works.
Their commercial paint a picture of fear in order to capitalize on the recent changes in the economy. They are scaring people into thinking that they will soon be losing their jobs, their homes and their financial stability will be gone forever. Viewers are taken in and unwittingly send in priceless jewelry in exchange for cash. Cash is king right….yeah.
This sounds pretty normal so far, but here is the kicker. The gold that you send in is severely undervalued. Right now gold is at an all time high, over $1200/ounce. A solid gold necklace could easily weigh in over 15 grams, or half an ounce. That’s about $600 in gold. Cash 4 Gold would only offer $24.99. That is insance! When customer complain profusely are offered up to a whopping $75.
Unsatisfied with that amount for the necklace you bought for several hundred dollars? Tough shit, because Cash 4 Gold will often “lose” customers shipments, recompensing them comparatively paltry amounts, and getting your gold sent back is a predictably futile miasma of customer service representatives who are literally paid to not do what you want.
Bottom Line….stay away, the convenience factor is great, However your local pawn shop should offer in the $10 to $15 per gram range. Three to four times what Cash 4 Gold will offer
Countour Ad Belt Review – It’s a scam…

In America, you can always bank on selling sex. A lesser known truth is that you will never go broke selling to laziness and sheer stupidity. Perhaps no product is better at this than the infamous Ab-Belts. This product touts using electrical charges to stimulate/contract the abdominal muscles. The belts claim to give you 6-pack abs while you inhale Big Macs and Cheez-Its. As much as we would all like this to be true, there has never been, and never will be, a trick to losing weight besides diet, exercise, and large doses of methamphetamines.
Despite being repeatedly sued and slapped on the wrist by the FTC, the makers of these devices continue to adamantly insist that their product will give you the abs of your dreams, while quietly explaining that they actually will not in some hard-to-find fine print. In a startling and incredibly rare fit of sanity, Americans have largely rejected these products, leading them to expand into markets such as China, where consumer protection often amounts to little more than a prayer and some origami cranes.
Really people if you want to lose that tire around your mid section get out and exercise. Shocking yourself repeatedly is just not gonna do it.
