In my last post, I wrote that someone left a message in the comments to several of my posts saying that he had purchased the infamous FreeNEzy.com. I left this person a challenge to provide evidence of the sale to validate the story, and if he did so I would report such here.
Well, several days ago our friend left a new comment per my instructions. Although the response was less than warm and fuzzy, he did provide two screenshots capturing the details of the transaction on escrow.com and a scan of his South Carolina drivers license. The screenshots show the infamous Mr. Jhaveri as the seller and our new friend Josh as the buyer. The South Carolina drivers license is also significant since the IP address from which the comments were left was from the “sc.comcast.net” domain. The name on the license also matched that on the transaction details.
While this is not proof beyond a reasonable doubt, it is enough to make me believe that this transaction did in fact happen and FreeNEzy.com is under new ownership. However, I do feel the need to respond to a few of his comments left in his reply.
I made a genuine offer to you to prove my identity to you. You made no attempt to take me up on that offer, and now you’re calling my credibility into question? I have no need, desire, or use for your contact info.
You may not, but Mr. Jhaveri apparently did have a use for my contact info. Since I had no way of knowing you weren’t Mr. Jhaveri, I have to make sure I protect myself in this situation.
Did you even stop and think for one second that perhaps the messages I left on the other posts are true? You’re acting as if there’s no possible way that the site could have sold, when in fact it did.
I did stop to think that you may be telling me the truth, which is why I made my offer instead of simply ignoring you or deleting your comments. As you can tell from my previous posts and the posts of the users on SlickDeals, Mr. Jhaveri was not exactly known for his honesty.
I haven’t taken the eJawab instances off of the site yet, because I’ve been busy applying for all of the affiliate offers and putting them on the site, as well as adding new rewards to the site, and more. Plus, I’m new to all of this and am still trying to figure out how to remove all the eJawab instances from the site. I was simply inviting you to see for yourself that I am who I say I am.
Fair enough, although I would think you’d attend to references on your own site before commenting on some fairly small blog. You have owned the site since mid-February.
Furthermore, it’s well known that most users of Google do not look past the first page of results, and as you so generously pointed out, yours was on page 2. I think most of your readers would probably concur that they do not look beyond page 1.
I’d agree with your assessment that most users don’t look beyond the first page of results, although I would think that if you are making an investment in a website you would be motivated to go on to page two of results.
Best of luck with your investment, Josh. I hope you can run the site in a profitable yet honest way and break away from the site’s shady past.
