    Been watching a listing through the whole auction on flippa and to me its obvious the proofs are fake as are the BS answers the
    seller is giving.

    The site looks like its using fake traffic where you can set a referral URL so it looks like its legitimate.

    The adsense clicks not sure how hes doing that as he says he will allow anyone to test the site with their own
    adsense code to verify the clicks no doubt a click bot, paid freelancers or some other BH method to get clicks.

    The listing is here https://flippa.com/2976279-800-mo-adsense-education-blog

    Having tracked down some other sites the guy sold they are all identical and newly registered it just doesn't add up to me.

    Anyone have any idea how hes getting away with this and why people are so stupid to bid and actually pay for these sites?

    Its crazy!!!

    When the buyer refuses to provide verified earnings, it's just funny to see people bidding. There are suckers out there.

    Caveat Emptor = Buyer Beware

    ALWAYS do your due diligence when doing ANYTHING on that site.

    Yea its really sad I am amazed that people fall for such an obviously fake site.

    I love how the seller had a new account post on the listing to back him up, its obvious a fake account along with a stock photo
    for the profile pick I mean come on do people just skim through listings then hand over 2 grand so willingly?

    I'm gonna watch the seller see if he pulls the same crap next time if he gets a chance.

    probably the same shit happening there as it is here. Sellers have fake accounts to make it look like their service/site is wanted by others.

    Just about all the websites "earnings" on Flippa are faked. If you didn't realize this by now, I don't know what your future holds.

    Flippa has technology and self developed algorithms to find duplicate accounts and shill bidders but they can't find a 1 week old domain falsely claiming 3 months of revenue. :D

    That's my boys (and 1 girl) :)

    For those who don't know, Flippa does not handle the financial transaction. Thus, they don't know whether any money was actually moved at all.

    Im sure those who bid for these websites are newbies looking "easy money on internet hype" , why would some one sell $800 per month website at $2100 which he makes back money in 3 months, a lot of these happen in flippa, allthough flippa is cool website there are many genuine auctions, you will need to verify earning or analytics through flippa system to be marked "verified by flippa" its very hard to fake their system.
