There is yet more to the fraud uncovered in the previous two posts. Searching on the number “866-951-1406” given as the number to call to cancel brings up a whole slew of results. It turns out that jasongetsrich.com is only one “front” for this operation. Other domains include:
- scottsmoneyblog.com (no longer online)
These were all I was able to uncover.
In the process, I uncovered a mile-long trail of unhappy customers, searching on either the phone number or “google treasure chest scam”:
- Is joshmadecash.com a SCAM
- Google Treasure Chest – it’s a scam and a half!
- Beware of Google Treasure Chest. | I’ve Tried That
- Beware of Google Money Tree | I’ve Tried That
- Google Pro Kit is a Big Scam
- Google Treasure Chest Complaints
- Google Cash Review and Why Google Cash is a scam? | Developer Oracles
This is not exhaustive, of course. Notice the name has been changed a few times, but the phone number has been kept the same.
Some people also feel misled that this is somehow sponsored or endorsed by Google, because of the similar logo being used. I would not be surprised to see legal action from Google in the near future regarding trademark dilution.
Feel free to reply with comments on this post about any information you have. I plan to make this series of posts the most exhaustive and thorough repudation of this (group of) fraudulent weasel(s) on the World Wide Web.
