I had an Ad on Craigslist for about a month and nobody seemed to contact me. I was a bit sad because I was eager to sell my car and buy a new one. Time passed by, and a friend recommended me Corkin.com. It was a free advertising site… I gave it a try and left an ad there.
In a matter of minutes, I got an email from a guy named Paul, who was the owner of the site. He offered me an advertising boost for a $15 a week, and a deal for site promotion. Basically if I refer people to Corking, I would get 15% of their spending. I took the ad off Craigslist and moved it to Corkin.com hoping I’d sell the car faster. Paul charged me for the advertising, and agreed on the deal for promotion.
I brought in 15-20 people to advertise their stuff on Corkin. Paul being a fucking prick, offered all of them the same thing he offered to me. That was a shitty move to make that directly sabotaged me. And all of my friends that I recommended this site to knew that I would be making money of them.
In the meantime, my ad was standing there online, and I HAD 0 Views. The son of a bitch lied to me about promoting my ad and selling my car in a matter of days. What a fucking weasel. And he did that to a 20+ people that joined the site after me.
I finally had some leads on the car after 40 days!!!! The thing is I wish I hadn’t.
That’s asshole was spying on everybody on Corkin. Paul promises you mountains and valleys, and then he betrays your privacy like a little cockroach, reads everything, and steals client information. World-class bastard.
Off course, I never sold my car and my ad was about to expire when I got an email about extending it. I didn’t reply to it, but was charged for the next month all the same. Fucking bastards had me recurring list and I couldn’t erase details of my credit card from their site. I would have to cancel it in order to stop paying.
These motherfuckers didn’t stop there. They also fucked with everyone who simply visited their site. The ads and the mailers these guys had were full of spam and malware
My friend actually got a computer virus from Corkin email that automatically went data searching for his private stuff. Additional charges for him in order to get it fixed…
And the worst thing of all is that he didn’t pay me a single dollar for all the people I referred to Corkin. He fucked me over for more than $400 that I know of and who knows how much more that I don’t. None of the people who were affiliated with Corking actually got any money. Dickhead move and I really don’t believe anymore that this site and the owner actually care about advertising. It’s simply about stealing money and information from people. I would be billed $15 monthly for who knows how long if hadn’t canceled it. And I bet you many people don’t notice it for a couple of months
Overall, I had a bad experience with Corkin. They actually can’t do anything they promise in terms of advertising, they are charging various fees for a supposed free advertising campaign, they devised a pyramid scheme of referrals that actually is solely focused on scamming people and they steal private and credit card information. So be extra careful when dealing with these guys are better yet don’t deal with them at all. The safest way to not get hurt by these idiots is to simply avoid them altogether
I found multiple threads online complaining about these bastards and the more stuff that surfaces, the uglier it gets. You can find most of it online and you know that you can’t really hide anything on the internet so these bastards should be out of business very soon. I just hope someone takes them to court as well ‘cos I would support that 100%
