17 March 2021 – Linking Scam – Black Hat SEO

RockmusicRaider Pillory - Bad Link SEO

Well, Bella here is trying to pull a fast one on poor old RMR. Google & Co. don’t take kindly to that kind of link scheme. If found out, it will get you banned so quickly, you won’t know what’s hit ye. We discussed this issue already in an SEO article on bad linking practices. And I will never understand how these people think we actually need more posts. As in moar, like. From sources that don’t fit into a music blog to boot.

Go figure!

19 January 2021 – Hosting Renewal – Phishing Scam

  • Illegal: Yes

RockmusicRaider Pillory - New Hosting Phishing Scam

Somebody trying to lure me away from my hosting by throwing coupons at me? Aha. Ah, but first, who am I talking to exactly? A hosting company with no website? Selling things like ‘Best Value Web Products’. Thanks, that’s some staggering value proposition. Well, there’s a lot of questions for and they should be asked. Only, never ever click on that link. It will not end well.

RockmusicRaider Pillory - Richard Wahl Phishing Scam

Well, where to begin. This scam is so old, it almost stinks. Richard Wahl did indeed win the lottery. But he isn’t distributing his monies. Instead, an army of scammers has taken over and tries to extort their victims. I am truly not sure who in his or her right mind would latch on to this, but – apparently – it works. And who would trust a website that call itself literally ‘no-site’? I rest my case. Meantime, let’s all send mails to and ask for a few million. In cash, in an unmarked leather bag. That would be fun, right?

05 Nov 2020 – Canadian Google Docs Scam

  • Illegal: Yes, once the scam starts

RockmusicRaider Pillory - Canadian religious nut Google Docs scam

I almost laughed when I saw that one. At the outset, there does not seem to be much amiss. Apart from some Canadian conspiracy nut meandering from bizarre Covid allegations to total religious fervor. What can I say? Thick as a brick comes to mind. And probably in cahoots with these two bozos.

But, did you spot the scam? Right, it’s there in front of you. To the right of the ‘website’ opener, you’ll find a link to a Google Docs page. So, it’s not a website at all, it’s an edit page. At the end of the day, this is phishing, and not a very elegant attempt. Older versions of the scam were killed quickly by Google. Albeit that there’s a new one out there that downloads a key logger.

No clicking here. Shawna baby is a fraud.
