Big Time Operators charges money for false inflation of social media hits. They practice business in an unethical manner and do not keep customer service a priority. Big Time Operators claims to increase twitter followers and Facebook and youtube views. The process they go through with all of these is fairly easy to explain. I will tell you step by step on how the two brothers Jason and Kris run "services" that you can either easily accomplish or how they provide false numbers.

TWITTER: Kris gave me his office assistant's contact number and she managed my twitter account for a short while. All she did was follow other people, and unfollow them if they did not follow back. Most businesses can accomplish this diligently at their own pace. It does not yield genuine interested in your business or brand - merely mostly people who are willing to follow you back to attain a higher number of followers themselves.

FACEBOOK Initially, I deposited $ for Kris to push the likes on my Facebook page to $10000. The numbers stopped short at 6000 and he demanded more money. I was unsatisfied of the service so far, but he failed to reach the numbers verbally promised. Additionally, I have lost thousands of likes on my page. Know why? BOTS. There are a great number of fake likes on Facebook as well as fake views on twitter. After Facebook started cracking down on fake likes in December of 2012, many artists (like Lady Gaga, Bieber etc) lost thousands of likes.

Put it this way: If a majority of the likes on your page come from Egypt, Philippines, or Malaysia, it's a red flag that you have an army of bots. This would be fine if you want an artificially high number of likes on your page, but you risk having them randomly plummet when a large site - like Facebook or youtube - does a cleanse of fake profiles and bots.

A GENERAL HINT on whether a Facebook page has inflated "likes" is how much audience interaction there is to the poster. As of now, Big Time Operators has 40,000 likes. However, most of the posts have about 10 people liking or commenting on the post. Additionally, the last review the company has had was from 5 months ago. Why do you think that is?

Social media is getting increasingly savvy about fake likes and fake views. Wouldn't you want genuine interest in your business or brand? Do not use companies like Big Time Operators. Consumers are smartening up.

#1 Consumer Comment

Nice try!

AUTHOR: nomorescammers - (United States of America)

I find it very odd that the fan pages that were created for these star athletes actually share many of the same posts.  Maybe Tebow, RG3, Trout, & Kappy are all friends...hmmm.  Seems VERY fishy, just saying.

Hopefully this helps

AUTHOR: Kris D - (United States of America)

As anyone can plainly see, this is the only ripoff or scam report on our company since it's creation back in 2011...

We have always tried to work with the top minds in industry, including prime-time shows, chain restaurants, speakers, authors, athletes, etc...and they have been glad to work with us. See for yourself -

In an attempt to help out some "aspiring" models with lower budgets, who were wanting to increase their social proof, we went against out better judgement, and agreed to work with a few ladies (and Aileen was one of them) to boost their numbers... Even still, Aileen is the only one to have an issue, as the others knew what they were paying for due to us being transparent.

Unfortunately, with a budget of just $500, running Facebook ads to grow a page over 10,000 fans, plus twitter, is just not possible.

> HOWEVER,  to be accused of "only pushing fake fans/followers" is ridiculous, because when we are working with REAL talent, great things happen, as you can see here: http://Facebook.com/OfficialTimTebowFanClub,
http://Facebook.com/RG3Fanpage,  http://Facebook.com/ColinKaepernickFanpage,
http://Facebook.com/VisalusNation, http://Facebook.com/MikeTroutFanClub,
as well as many of our other clients pages!

When we try to fit a square peg in a round hole (basically trying to force a project without a sufficient budget) things go wrong, and in this particular case, the "client" (and I use that term loosely) has more to gain by throwing people under the bus, rather than spend time trying to progress a career.

Best of luck Aileen.
