Godlikeproductions.com GLP is running an extortion scam. Internet
Yes you read that right. Godlike Productions(GLP) is a a fraud! While disguised as an alternative media website operating on the edge of disclosing news the mainstream media keeps quiet about, they are actually all about only one thing: To get into your wallet as fast as possible.
Let me tell you what happened when i tried to sign up there for the first time in my life: I registered an account, which went fine. After activating the account through the activation email I set out to fill out my profile there and while I was in the middle of doing to I got hit with the banned page. Apparently my IP address was banned, even though it was my very first visit to their forums.
Oh well while signing up I already read about automated software they had running on the site in order to keep spammers at bay, so I thought that it was just a software glitch. So the next step was filling out their unban request form and request my IP to be unbanned.
Here is the email that followed after my unban request:
Your unban request was denied.We’re sorry but the IP address you are using to access this website has been banned. If you wish to immediately bypass this ban, you can choose to become an upgraded member. Follow the instructions and links for this option on the “banned page” you receive when trying to view godlikeproductions.com. If you are already an upgraded member, you can log into your account from the ban page and you will be able to access the site immediately. If you choose not to become an upgraded member of GLP you will have to wait for the ban to be lifted before you will be able to view this website. Please check back later.
As you can see they are unwilling to lift the ban even though they provided no reason for it(How could they I haven’t even made one post there), but if I shell out some cash to become an “upgraded” member it’s all good and the ban will immediately be lifted! I don’t know about you but I read that as an extortion email to get me to shell out money.
The money they are after is a subscription based fee at $ 10 monthly, $37 annually or $ 100 per year!!! That’s a nice scam they got going there! Extort a few suckers a day in to paying up and it will add up nicely for the owner of GLP!
Of course I sent them a “nice” email back telling them to stick the account where the sun doesn’t shine, but I do find it important to spread the word through the alternative media community throughout the Internet.
So people, beware when you are looking at GLP it is a scam site designed to part you with your cash as fast as possible. My next step is going to be to file an official complaint at Paypal whom they use to get the extortion money to their accounts!
