Review Summary:

TheConsumerReviewJournal.com is a fake advertorial news site promoting questionable business opportunities that often are lead generation sites for high pressure sales floors selling coaching of dubious value.

This is research into the advertorial site TheConsumerReviewJournal.com to understand it’s methods of promotion, analysis of its claims , & documentation of related sites.

Initial Promotion To Me

I received the intial promotion for TheConsumerReviewJournal.com after creating a special email account for emails from Profit Masters Academy. If you’re interested, you can read about my previous analysis of ProfitMastersAcademy.com here.

Here’s the email I received from a sender using the name Martha Thomas at the Home Working Group.

The Consumer Journal Review Initial Email

The Claims:

  • Some company is offering to work at home with a respected mentor that has been featured on many national publications.
  • I’ll see a case study that details other peoples’ results with this company.
  • Positions are going fast due to the national media buzz this company is getting.
Clicking through on the Home Working Group email link goes takes me to The Consumer Review Journal via the following path:

The Consumer Review Journal Advertorial Disclaimers And “Case Studies”

TheConsumerReviewJournal.com site uses a decent-sized Advertorial disclaimer at the top and bottom of their site:

Bottom Advertorial Disclaimer:

The Consumer Review Journal “Case Studies”?

According to the initial email I received I was supposed to click through to find a case study that details other peoples’ results with “this company”.  Apparently “this company” (for now) is eProfit Academy at e-Profit-Academy.com.

Here’s the problem with that statement:

1) Jennifer Smith is a fake person. Click here to see her stock photo at iStockPhoto.

2) I didn’t see ANY case studies anywhere. The only thing I see at TheConsumerReviewJounrnal.com site is a fake claim that:

Theresa Andrews was able to use Jennifer Smith simple eProfit Academy to make it out of the recession and a fake statement saying: “I went from a fixed salary at work to grossing an additional $7,000-$8,000 a month from my home computer.”

How do know that claim is fake?

1) Jennifer Smith is fake, so how could “Theresa Smith” have followed a fake person’s system?

2) That EXACT same testimonial has been used across hundreds of sites using many different names.

Here are just a few of those fake names, fake product creators, and fake testimonials:

Cathy Williams testimonial for Andrew Murray’s The At Home Wealth Kit…

 

Mary Steven’s fake testimonial for Patty Joyner’s Online Profit Masters.

Find Jobs For Moms Fake Testimonial

Mary Stevens fake testimonial for At Home Wealth System and Internet Income Wealth Kit.

Home Business Ledger Fake Testimonial

And here’s a video showing many more…
