Spamming seems to be continuing, unfortunately.

This is pervasive - - pretty much after being decimated by the Safe Web Admin, they are at it once again, concerning:

As i said previously, these people will stop at nothing to over-inflate the rating of this “football ticket” site just like the spammers did with Brothersoft.  It’s like, does anyone even really care about Football anymore?  Who knows, i might be in the minority on that, but, after that National Anthem debacle, that was it for me. 

I have hit the “report abuse” button on Safe Web for the newest batch of fraudulent reviews in this regard, hopefully, the requests will not fall on deaf ears.  What i think might have to happen with this, is that the Safe Web Admin will have to BLOCK future reviews from being issued pertaining to this site.    

Regards, 

H.B.

Re: Spamming seems to be continuing, unfortunately.

Praise God, the spam reviews are continuing to pour in and the Safe Web Admin is doing absolutely NOTHING.  Fifteen [15] garbage reviews and the rating has climbed to a 4.6.  What has to happen is a scrapping of the illegitimate reviews and a block from anyone else issuing a review for this site. 

Please see: https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show_mobile?name=hotfootballtickets.com

Re: Spamming seems to be continuing, unfortunately.

Hello HB

I just had another thread from meeker complaining about the same thing. I have just sent the Safe Web Team notice about that site and what they are doing. I explained to them what is happening. I will add your thread to the report I just sent in.

Please stay tuned to this thread for a response from the Safe Web Team on Sunday night after midnight EDT

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Re: Spamming seems to be continuing, unfortunately.

Hello once again Floplot,

Yeah, sorry to bother you with this, but, it looks like they are starting in again.  And, trust me, these people are persistent, just like the Brothersoft spammers from back when - - they are very militant and will stop at nothing to over-inflate the rating of their site.  Like i indicated in the previous post, a ban on future reviews for this site must be imposed; they have abused their privileges and do not deserve advertising on Safe Web's platform.   

Meeker?  Are you talking about: https://safeweb.norton.com/profile/meerkat321?

Not for nothing, but, another to be on the lookout for is evidenced here:

https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show_mobile?name=birthdaywishesstatus.com

Three [3] "reviews" just cropped up for this site out of nowhere in the last seventeen [17] hours and Safe Web has NO intel on it.  Hopefully, the status of the "birthday wish" in this case is not malware. 

Sincerely,

H.B.

Hello HB

I had the name slightly incorrect. The correct name in the Forum is Meerkat321 I'm not sure that Safe Web takes care of the Reviews. There might be another Team for that. I sent them the 2 threads yesterday. We'll see what they say if anything.

Have a Nice Day and

Thanks.

Hello H B

That football site now is blocked for scammers. We'll see if the football site owner complains about the blockage. I am surprised though that Safe Web Team didn't post here.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Re: Spamming seems to be continuing, unfortunately.

All they had to do was clear the obviously scripted reviews and prevent new reviews from being issued; instead, they tag the site as a virus known as 'Scam Website', lol.  If this isn't an epic facepalm i don't know what is (disbelief face)

Too bad for them, they abused their privileges, and have been vanquished.

Re: Spamming seems to be continuing, unfortunately.

Hi,

#3 is MainID and is fine, as a matter of fact, i have pointed to that review as an undergirding of why i believe the hotfootballtickets is no good.  I was discontent with #2 wherein gives the site five [5] bars to over-inflate it, yet, seems to be not pleased with the site!  There is definitely a disconnect there and that review should have been scrapped as well. 

Regards,

H.B.

Re: Spamming seems to be continuing, unfortunately.

Even though he was 'unimpressed' with it, he probably rated it 5 bars because the site is perfectly safe, the only problem with it is that the service charge is unusually high.

Re: Spamming seems to be continuing, unfortunately.

I can understand where you are coming from; on some level though, i can't help but think that that guy is part of the effort to over-inflate the rating of the site...

Re: Spamming seems to be continuing, unfortunately.

Well, I don't think he is. He might seem to be because he uses his full name, no profile picture and sounds similar to those fake reviewers. (I can't describe what exactly you would call it)

I think we need to disable new reviews from being created, and keep those 3 reviews, because they are legitimate.

"Well, I don't think he is."

Fair enough.  I definitely agree with you that restrictions have to be imposed.  By the way, congrats on attaining the forum rank of Contributor.  Also, thanks for taking time out of your day to contribute on this thread.

Re: Spamming seems to be continuing, unfortunately.

Well, they took away the virus categorization:

the problem now is that, the fraud reviews are pouring in again - - they have NOT turned off reviews for this site which they need to do!  Although it might get "heated" at any moment, luckily, it looks as though some counter-forces have descended to knock down the rating. 

Hopefully, those in authority on Safe Web, will deal with this promptly,

I'm glad Security Shield is back. I hope that he and more older users will return and make Safe Web great again!

Hello HB

I'm going to check on this because I thought that Safe Web doesn't come back to work until Sunday night after midnight EDT, Strange that the setting changed and that there are a bunch of new posts from 1 hour ago. Sorry I got here so late tonight.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.
