Let’s Play, Do They Comply, With NewsOn11.com and Debtmerica Relief

It has been a while since we played “Do They Comply” but a tipster (send in your tips here) sent in the following information and wanted me to share it with you.

I think we have a new winner in the DECEPTIVE ADVERTISING DEPARTMENT

http://www.newson11.com/debt.php

Check it out, they prepare it like its a REAL SITE and a Real News story, check the site www.newson11.com EVERY PAGE takes you to debtmerica.com they claim there is a government program!!

What I’d like to see on your site is a place to send this site and sites like it to the FTC. IF this is not DECEPTIVE advertising then I dont know what is!!

The NewsOn11.com site looks like this.

From the looks of the URL that takes visitors to their landing page it appears they are just benefiting from the NewsOn11.com site and it is not theirs. http://x.azjmp.com/4cGz5?azauxurl=69362 is a domain registered to Azoogle.com which links to EpicDirect which describes itself as:

“Epic Direct is a division of the Epic Media Group and is the company’s flagship performance-based ad network focused primarily on customer acquisition and pay-for-performance online advertising campaigns.” – Source

  3. Dude, Just learn from the mistake and do it better next time. There are a lot of people here that would be happy to lend their expertise and feedback if you wanted to launch a new campaign.

    Just keep a photo of that one handy as a great example of what not to do again. 🙂

  4. You guys are right. I truly do apologize. I actually saw this article on another affiliate site, and decided to use it without really thinking. My bad, the site’s down and won’t be up again. I’m just a young affiliate marketer following examples of other affiliates who’ve claimed they make money this way, and I figured putting the appropriate disclaimers on the site made it ok.
