www.viaddress.com / scam website
A new website has been put up called viaddress.com. They supposedly offer mail forwarding services. I was researching this market as there was a product I wanted to purchase that was only available in the US. I came across this gem, viaddress.com. The primary thing I found was that on every website, viaddress had dozens of five-star reviews, even when major websites such as Amazon only had a handful. Doing a bit more searching I found that viaddress was paying people to write positive reviews of the company, even if they had never used their service!
It includes what to say, what websites to post on, and even how to mask your IP address so it does not show as Spam. Many of the "reviewers" that posted positive reviews for viaddress posted bad reviews for the company's competitors, again even though the probably never used them. Why would anyone deal with a company that has to engage in such tactics?!?
There are a lot of other red flags too. The address provided is at a UPS store, not an actual business location.
Also, the viaddress.com registrant information is concealed behind a host proxy, which is not something most legitimate companies do. And many of their graphics are taken right from a competitor's website. This company is bad news and should be avoided at all costs.
