The Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Scam Email

Subject: Not happy with website traffic?
Date: Mon 7/1/2013 8:02 PM
From: Ana Lopes


I’ve noticed that your website, which could be a major source of revenue for your organization, is not getting enough search engine traffic. It does not show up within TOP 20 rankings on Google, for some of your most popular keywords. Your competitors are outperforming you. I also tried to look for your business on various Social media sites and really couldn't find much else about you.

Over the last 12 months GOOGLE has placed so much importance on Content Creation & Social Media Performance that if your business isn't creating valuable content or even visible across Social media platforms. That leaves bleak chances of your site being seen on any search engine for keywords or getting referral traffic through other Social platforms.

With a solid plan and strategy I honestly believe I can help get your website ranking higher on GOOGLE and getting customers to interact with your business on Social Media to really build your brand.

Obviously, we are not the only Search marketing firm that provides this service, but I assure that the quality of work we do, is not matched by anyone else in our peer group.

We look forward to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,
Ana Lopes

The website

The website

Legitimate companies do not register their domain names for one year. One year is the minimum registration period for a domain name and scammers usually register domain names for this minimum period because they know their fraudulent schemes will be noticed and their websites taken down by then.

The “authentic logos” or verified logos on the website are fakes.

The website authetic logo

These logos should have a link, when clicked, should take you to the company's website that issued the logo, verifying the authenticity of it.

For example:

The "Google Adwords Qualified" authenticity logo on the website doesn’t have a link. If this website was legitimate, clicking on that logo would take you to the following website, where that person's or company's authentic certificate will be displayed:

Google Adwords Partner Search Certification

This website,, uses PayPal for their payment processor. The PayPal account name they are using is: Digital Success

I do not recommend purchasing anything from this website.
