This is what most people fall for. I can bet, that first 10 pages on Google are scam.
Good topic - do you mean the posted links ?

I mean the results we get through Google search.
I saw some lady offering USD 10k for being on first page on Google for this keyword. Obviously, the intention was not pure.

Ok, I understand now. Yes - this happens a lot. Bribe your way to the top :-(
There are people who will put you in first page in some 20 -30 days. But the techniques they employ, you could get blacklisted in much less time than that.
mvp Exactly. Very likely unorthodox methods.
They will serve anyone. No thing called conscience at all.

Although not exactly the same, I’ve just received an email (shortly followed up by a cold call) asking if I wanted to pay for the priviledge of being awarded some award I’ve never heard of. These sort os scams don’t help with the genuine people or sites that want to sell or help people.
mrfrosty And this exact behaviour is what is derailing the community we’ve worked so hard to establish
Do you know of any WhatsApp awards ? Someone asked me the other day. Poor fellow even gave them all of his details and no money came.

That sounds very much like a scam to me
No doubt. That is how they collect your data. They even ask for you bank account no. so that they can remit the money.
