Nowadays, people rely on the internet to get facts, instructions, information, ideas, news, and a whole lot more. It is somewhat more convenient, fast, and indeed the easier way of retrieving information compared to doing it the old school way of gathering hard facts. However, did you notice that somehow, we are equating truth with convenience which should not be the case?
Just take a look at the various death hoax roaming the internet these days; even celebrities and known personalities fall as victims… and you know what’s worse? People BELIEVE these lies.
The Internet plays a significant role in businesses and marketing since the early 2000s. Hence, every year, various companies may be large or startups rely on the internet to reach larger demographics when it comes to advertising their products and services. It is indeed a positive aspect. Companies may reach certain countries or areas that are unreachable if not thru the world wide web. Larger target market = Bigger sales!
However, truth can be greatly seen; not all companies and businesses use internet marketing the RIGHT way. Why is that so?
Blame it on the tough competition and unprofessional industry competitors.
More so, the higher the business climbs, the more they are exposed.
So what all these have to do about Desmond Ong?
See… I am here to explain to you the truth about all of the allegations which are currently surrounding Desmond’s name, his company, and his products and services.
Desmond Ong is a best selling author. He is also a well-known international speaker and mentor. He coaches hundreds of aspiring entrepreneurs across the globe. He became a millionaire at a very young age. He is a philanthropist. His mission is to empower others to pursue their life’s purpose.
Is Desmond Ong his real name?
Of course, it is. It is indeed his real name. Desmond Ong is Desmond Ong. He does not use pseudonyms or pen names even as an author, unlike others. It is indeed his birth and real name.
What makes Desmond Ong one of the best-selling authors of all time?
You see, he wrote the book Against All Odds so that he could show others his journey and how success doesn’t come without a couple of failures. That no matter what your age is, if you work hard for your dreams, you will definitely make them come true.
Perhaps, this aspect contributed to the huge sales of Desmond’s book. There are thousands or even millions of aspiring entrepreneurs nowadays, and reaching over 1 Million in sales at a very young age of 21 made it all possible.
Why is Desmond Ong Tagged as a Scammer?
People nowadays especially the ones in the same industry are taking their time to damage the reputation and the names of those who are on top. Why? Because they want to get more sales! Hence, they are doing it the wrong way.
If you are a business with a clear mission and a genuine vision, would you lower yourself just to drag others down?
Desmond’s story is achievable… but honestly, not everyone can attain it.
Hence, the “draggers” and the envious.
I would not say that Desmond is lucky. Lucky is a term for those who perhaps did not try hard enough but reached the end of the tunnel anyways. He is not lucky… really. He is a hard worker. He worked for everything that he is experiencing now; the fame, the luxury. He deserved these. He tried his very best to reach the top… and he did it solo.
If you will try to google Desmond’s name, you will see negative reviews about him. Others say that he is a SCAMMER, a fake person, a person whom you should not trust. On the other hand, you will notice that they are keyword-laden. It helps, you know… crawling the search engines way better! Stuffing those articles and blog posts with such keywords and fake negative reviews would mean Desmond’s clients buying their offers instead. More about this in this post.
Are Online Reviews Real?
The Real Deal on Fake Review Sites Like HolySmoke.org
There is a new scheme that hits a lot of legitimate entrepreneurs, coaches, and businesses. A fake review site like HolySmoke uses names of known personalities just like Desmond Ong to get high on search engine searches. Then guess what… they will send an offer to these personalities and will ask for money in exchange for taking down the fake review page that they have written.
You want proof? Then see below:
A couple of months ago, a guy named Robert Grant offered Desmond Ong to remove the review page for free – and then charge the fees later. If you are in Desmond’s place who is a victim of fake reviews, you will definitely say YES. But being wise as he is, he thought, “What if I’ll delay the payment? Will the fake review pop again?”… and indeed… the fake review page is up again.
Digging deeper, it all boils down to the fact that Robert Grant is also the owner of HolySmoke. He writes bad reviews, and then charge you to remove such reviews.
THESE FAKE REVIEWERS PUT OUT FAKE NEGATIVE REVIEWS WITH AGENDAS:
So probably you are still wondering… what do these fake review sites get in return? Here are what they’re actually after:
- TRAFFIC. They get traffic from people googling names of known personalities
- CLICKBAIT. Negative information works better because they gather people’s attention.
- SELL. Their goal is to either sell review removal services or sell their own agenda
- FAKE COMMENTS. They post a lot of fake comments, and never approve any good ones that real, happy clients submit
THESE FAKE REVIEWER’S SERVERS ARE ALL HOSTED IN THE USA
With the bills of rights in America, anyone can post anything over the world wide web, and can only be removed or halted by an American court order. These fake reviews are targeting mostly entrepreneurs and marketers in Asia as it’s very difficult for them to pursue legal action.
More so, upon further investigation of the authorities, these fake review sites often use fake names. The comments are mostly from anonymous users, who refuse to debate on their comments. They often use a proxy so they won’t be detected.
THEY TARGET GULLIBLE PEOPLE
People nowadays tend to rely solely on the information they get over the internet. Hence, by damaging the legitimate reputations of various entrepreneurs, coaches, and businesses, these fake review websites such as HolySmoke.org gain views and clicks and plays over the minds of the gullible readers.
Don’t be fooled by these fake review sites. Yes, it is your right to know the truth… but you also have the responsibility of feeding yourself with correct information. Choose information wisely.
Yet again… another HolySmoke scheme…
Just a few days ago, Desmond received an another message pertaining to the removal of the HolySmoke.org posting. This time, a LinkedIn account was used. A guy named Zack Gross (or probably a pseudonym) tried to sell the service to Desmond Ong. See the message below.
So, what are the issues that we can see here? I have listed them below:
- A LinkedIn profile is easy to create. No need for prior contents, further verifications, et al. You just need an email address and build it from scratch, and use it to scam people.
- Is it just a coincidence or does it always aim in removing only the HolySmoke.org posting?… (Obviously the latter, so don’t be fooled!)
- Lastly, they always want to SELL their service… (It’s always been about the money… indeed!)
