I've seen some comments (I've gotten one) on tracks in the past week that promote links to a website that will supposedly promote your music. I didn't see much info about this, so I did a little clicking to find more comments and such. 100% sure it's a scam.
1) The price on the website is $250 but the comments give you a coupon code for $10. eZ scam method there, trying to make a deal look too good to be true (it is).
2) Why would a music promotion service use spam bots to promote their services? That's bad. Yup. Nope.
3) The comments have DIFFERENT LINKS to the website. E.G. www.website.club
, whilst another comment links to website.online
4) Yeah, they have a live chat on their website. I asked how they promoted the music and they closed the chat window for my IP. I also emailed them and got no response. I then used a proxy to get the chat box back on and they danced around the music promo topic.
WHAT IS THE WEBSITE you ask?
This might be well known, but I didn't see any talk about it.
You want to see some of the bots I was talking about?
This track has 4 of them. FOUR. Them bots need some smarter programming.
They frequently overlap, so if you visit every song they comment on, you're bound to find more.
TL;DR, Music promo scam adremusviral.com, totally not legit, avoid.
