Is a scam?

Wazzup guys? Or in the case of this review, WAZZUB? Sorry I couldn't help myself. So here we go again with a new company that is trying to be the next Google. So far no one seems to be winning that battle. But bless Wazzub for giving it the old college try. Let's dig in and see if there is anything to it.

What exactly is WAZZUB?

The goal of WAZZUB is to become the perfect home page with a powerful search engine, personalized news section, the best deals on the Internet and entertainment features like videos and skill games and so forth. Isn't this the model that Yahoo and AOL have and last I check it wasn't doing all that well? Well what makes WAZZUB unique is they share a percentage of the profits they earn from I'm assuming are the ads that will be on their portal and search engine. Our buddies at actually do something like this already.

In any event, it is free to sign up with WAZZUB. And you are not selling anything to others, no ebooks, no newsletters etc. So that part is good, as you won't lose any money if it does not work.

Do we know anything about who is behind this?

Over at there is a thread on this and in that thread the admin team at WAZZUB answered questions directly. So here is their answer,

"Who is the owner of your company?

WAZZUB is owned by several investors. Right now they are building the team of directors and managers that will run our project after launch. There will be a page with all the important members of our team after the team is completed. Our Marketing Director Gee DaCosta is not one of the initiators; he is the team member that is most important now – during pre-launch…. But we needed the skills of an experienced online marketer and Gee is the perfect match – and WAZZUB is the perfect business for Gee. He is very happy that he has found his ‘final' business and we know that WAZZUB will change the life of many, many others who are still on the search for the perfect internet opportunity."

How much money can you make with WAZZUB?

Assuming they actually make money, they claim 50% of their profits goes to the shareholders and 50% goes to the members who sign-up pre launch. After launch if you sign up the plan is to earn points to buy stuff?

How will you get paid?

Amazing what the power of spin can do. On their training videos they spend several minutes and power point slides on this and it boils down to this: They don't quite know yet. Honest to God. They sneak in words like ‘plan,' ‘hope' or ‘in the works' for Pay Pal, checks in the mail and direct deposit. But here they are getting ready for their big beta launch in April and they can't tell you for sure how they will pay you. Need I say more? They do know that May 15th is the first pay day for what that is worth.

Do you know where the money will come from?

Their line is they earn the same way Google does, from the ads placed on the search engine and some other additional ideas of their own, that fall into that same pipe dream yet to be shared world as their payment plans. More word play here, they say they use the ‘same technology as Google' which means they'll basically be using Google publishers options such as adsense or google custom search.

I guess I have made it pretty obvious that I have serious reservations about this company, but let me spell out the major concerns here in my Cons for you nonetheless.


1. When you're making a claim that you're going to be like Google or bigger it would be nice to know who the actual owners of the company is and all these so called investors.

2. It's very suspect that their domain name expire the day of the launch (which may have changed by the time this review came out.).

3. 50% of nothing is nothing. No matter what they say, in order to give their members 50% of their profits they have to have profits. We just don't know. That 50% will be divided up among these millions of people worldwide who are jumping on the bandwagon. The more people in the mix, the less you share.

4. You can say, well it won't cost you anything to try it out, and $$wise that may be true, but what about the respect and trust of the people you get to sign up under you? If this thing turns out to be much to do about nothing, now you're basically caught with your pants down. And that's pretty embarrassing! People won't trust you when you recommend other programs that may actually be legitimate. And we all know how hard it is to get referral as it is without having your reputation tarnished.

5. What's up with the bootleg blog? At the time of this review they're using a free blogger account from google. Look, that's cool when you're first starting out or when you're doing a personal blog. It's like training wheels for begginners. But any ‘REAL' company that is truly serious about their business and image would have their own hosted blog running on something like wordpress. If you aren't willing to invest in something as small as that, then where else are you cutting corners?

There is also additional great information at

So the bottom line, is WAZZUB legitimate?

I don't know if it's an outright scam yet. But it sure smells fishy from where I'm sitting. Are you risking a lot by joining this company? Well that all depends on what you value. Most people feel as long as they don't lose any money then it's not a scam.

But I know better than that. Scams don't always ask for money. Check out my Repackaging Shipping Work At Home scam article and all the comments listed there if you don't believe me. Sometimes scams are a ploy to get your personal information which can be misused for identity theft, unwanted online and offline solicitations. That's just as bad as losing money to me. Hey, but maybe you feel differently. Either way that's on you!

Furthermore when it comes to beta and pre-launch programs, I always take the wait and see approach. It's never led me astray. If something is as good as all the hype during the pre-launch, it should be around for many years to come like some of my favorite recommendations. So with that said I'm not going to be the guinea pig and I don't want to see my people subjected to that either.

Where I stand I would just let this one pass me by until it's proven itself in terms of a viable business model where people are actually getting paid and the owners are transparent. In any event, that's my take on this. There isn't enough substance there yet for me to bite or recommend that any of you do. I would love to hear from people who have considered this company or those who are current members. Feel free to fill in any additional details or correct me where I'm wrong.

  1. I make registration before 3 months there and today i can`t log-In there. I have to make the new one !?
    This site is 100% scam !!!

  2. my friend signed up and i fear that i’m too late
    “not revealing who” is pretty stuck into this, as soon as she sent me the link i did the research like this article. this is a scam in my opinion. google is legit because of conformed locations and some rumors of research labs  (sorry for going a bit off topic).

    there is a verification and i just hope it’s not too late

  3. Hmmm… “Money for Nothing”.. or just another semi-clever way to build a “Sucker List”?  I think I’ll have to go with Mark’s synopsis on this one.  One of the funny things about this “opportunity” is that they actually admit that they have no idea how they’re going to pay their pre-launch members! There have also been allegations made by some members of receiving non-unique referral codes, which if true would indicate that they’re probably simply being scammed into building up someone else’s downline. (Not that they’d ever know for sure though, since there’s also no way to track their referrals!)

    Almost as funny is the fact that the  website appears to be hosted overseas (in Germany, I believe), which  means that’s where their business is considered to be “legally” located. So should anyone have a problem, any legal actions would have to be taken there. If you have ANY business experience online, you probably already know that the very FIRST rule of avoiding online scams is to make sure that you can actually identify and locate the principals. If you can’t contact and receive a reply from a so-called business BEFORE you sign up or deal with with them, you sure as *#*&%!!* aren’t going to be able to contact them when things go bad!

    Also, most MLM’s more than 2 or 3 levels deep are typically doomed to fail for most members  since they’re usually just “pyramid” schemes.  Add in the possibility that you may get spammed to death, terminally damage your good reputation in the business community, and may never see any substantial returns for your efforts..  before deciding whether or not to join! – Hotstuff

  4. true i was with for years made nice money there but finally it fizzled out thier wasnt enough profits for them anymore but it when it was going strong and you a decent downline 10 levels with about 5000 people in it spend 1 hour a day going from each of your team pages for 4 secs each just say hi you made a few   $100 a month !

  5. I am 100% certain that this is an e-mail capturing scam.  They capture names, e-mails and even who your friends are.
    I discover new reasons to believe it’s a scam every day.  
    1. Their site is unprofessionally built in a few minutes.
    2. Their site’s counter is a fake, not feed
    3. They can’t make the kind of profit they are promising even if they give away 100% of revenue
    4. They are not innovating on anything
    5. There are known MLM pimps involved with them
    6. Their address is an office
    7. Their servers collapsed due to many signups. How can they handle actual work?
    8. McAfee considers their site unsafe, they probably even log IPs
    9. They are pimping recruitment like hell but not calling businesses to advertise
    10. They are impossible to contact, even if you want to be a shareholder
    11. Their marketing involves only getting members to spam.  They didn’t put out a Press Release which means that they don’t want the media to scrutinize their activity
    12. Their site expires next June.  I know they are on a budget but come on!
    13. They are bragging so much but not showing their face. If you were legit you’d socialize as much as possible?14. To make the amounts that Google or Facebook make you need expensive infrastructure and huge running costs that a startup can’t afford  and…
    15. No venture capitalist will fund a company that dumps 50% of profits, so even if they are legit they will stagnate because they can’t grow.
    16. The pyramid structure ensures that at MORE THAN 60% of members will not have single member unfer them so they will not make money. These will leave the site.  
    17. Once people start leaving, no one will see the ads so profits will go down.
    18. Their whois information shows that they are owned by a company that does laundry and babysitting. WTF! That’s what poor, uneducated people in the Philippines do to earn a meal, not what Google killers do.
    19. They are offering nothing.  There is no evidence that their system even works. If they were serious wouldn’t they do a viral video showing how the thing will work?
    20.  Those millions of users who make the profit would technically be shareholders, it is illegal to have that many shareholders and NOT go public.  But who on earth would buy their shares if they are dumping money to shareholders that didn’t invest money in the first place?I have many more reasons but you get my point already.

    • Aside from the offensive and unnecessary comment about poor in the Philippines, you make a lot of good observations. Many of which can actually be backed up unlike many of the claims that this company is making.

      You’ve provided folks even more to think about. So thanks for sharing. Hopefully one of their reps or employees will address these concerns.

    • Thanks.

      I really researched this out and found many more reasons than the ones above.  It would take long to share them all but I’ll give away the biggest one.Check for yourself if their estimated $1 per person in a downline, 5 levels deep is even realistic. You will find that it can never be.Let’s say they make as much money as facebook did in 2011 from advertising (it’s 7th year in existence so of course wazzub won’t manage that, but let’s just assume). So they would make 3.8 billion right?Wrong! 12% of Facebook’s earnings was from the Zynga games alone. See! FB doesn’t just make money from ads. They make money from apps, from selling shares and from licensing of their patents. But let’s just say that WAZZUB does an impossible 3.8 billion the first year. Let’s say they only get 3 million members by April 9th and then they manage to get the 700 Million that facebook has after that ( this is inconceivable but let’s assume it anyway, because how else would they make money from ads unless they have users viewing them).So you need to divide 3.8 billion by 3 million and you see that IF they gave away 100% of their earnings to pre-launch members they would only be giving an average of $1266.66 to each individual. THIS IS PER YEAR!!!Instead they are advertising incomes as high as $4000 PER MONTH. Not even Facebook or Google could give away that kind of money.I’ve given you an overly optimistic figure and I’ve shown you that WAZZUB are just feeding you bullshit. Do you still want to believe them.Listen to me! Do NOT EVEN go to their site. Change e-mail address and don’t send anyone there. You have no idea how easily open to scammers you will be once you’re on WAZZUB… it will be a safe haven for scammers.A community of hopeful idiots who actually believe you can make easy money on the internet and it’s a community of people that think there’s no danger in simply joining. Hopeful idiots that can’t even do some simple fact finding, all in one place. It is just what scammers want.STAY OUT OF WAZZUP, you’ll thank yourself for it.

    • ”  poor,  uneducated people in the Philippines?” wow! you better change that… i like your arguments but the way you think about Filipino people are wrong.. who ever you are Mark you make it sound like  racist to me…  
      offensive because you don’t even know us, how can you say things like that… so let me say it too on your FACE    “you have  poor mind and uneducated person!” why? educated person should do it’s  research  first before you say something and an educated person see things  equally  and fair. Now we are even!
      I’m sorry Eddy no disrespect i love your website and your  insights…

    • Will I totally understand your feelings and comments. That’s why I had to make a comment about the offensiveness of it as well. Hopefully this will be the last of it.

      Ok folks let’s now stay on topic and avoid any this type of stuff. This site is all inclusive and we want to just focus on what we’re all here for which is to make money and avoid scams.

      Thanks again Will!

  6. LOL, I thought the font was creative.
    You’re welcome. I like interacting with people on my blog. It’s the least I can do since you guys actually take the time to read my babbling. I’m glad I can be a source of inspiration and that you are taking action and doing your own thing! That’s great to hear! (Thanks for not spamming. 😉

    Keep me posted on your progress and thanks for the continued support.

  7. I was kind of wondering about that site…I had seen quite a few advertisements for it and I thought any site that uses font like that probably isn’t legitimate haha. By the way thanks for responding to my last comment it’s really awesome how much you interact with your subscribers. Everything I’ve learned from you has really inspired me. I’ve created a blog (which I won’t spam on here) and started working on getting my feet wet with advertising. I’m also thinking about join Wealthy Affiliate soon. Anyways, thanks again for everything. I’ll let you know my progress 🙂
