Kelly Richards Reviews – Legit or Scam?

 

Kelly RichardsFirst of all, my sympathies go out to anyone actually named Kelly Richards.  It is not your fault that your name has become entwined with a series of scams that have been sweeping the internet recently.

Kelly Richards is a fake persona being used in a variety of scams.  Possibly the most well known and often seen use of Kelly Richards is in the fake news articles.

I’ve tried to do my best at Reviewopedia to expose the use of fake news articles.  Fake news sites follow a basic template in which the site poses itself as a local online paper running a feature story on a successful work at home Mom or Dad.

The website owners use an IP tracking tool to make sure that the papers all have your local town in the heading.  So for instance if you live in Fresno, CA when you visit the site the heading would read “Fresno Times” and accordingly for anyone else who visits those sites.

While the fake news site will use a variety of names, Kelly Richards is one of the personas most often used.  Usually she’s a single mother, who has tried to make ends meet for a long time, and was at her wits’ end before she found whatever work at home kit that’s being advertised.

This work at home opportunity allowed her to quit her job, stay at home with her children, and earn a very hefty salary while working hardly ever.  This same work at home opportunity will not provide you with the same benefits, unfortunately.

In addition to fake news sites, it seems these days that Kelly Richards has actually begun her own blog to discuss all the different kits and internet work at home Biz Ops she’s used to earn money.

The Kelly Richards blog is a new tool being used by internet scammers.  The truth is that this name has been used so often in fake news sites, that it now receives a large volume of searches on a daily basis.  So scammers have set up a Kelly Richards blog that you will visit to read about how great Kelly is doing working with this new scam.

Hopefully Kelly Richards’ reign as the Queen of Scam will soon be over.  Now that her name is being used so often, undoubtedly more articles just like this one will be popping up to warn you of her.

    And yet it is over a year and this scam is still in the US. My bank account got hit today for $159. I did not authorize this transacting by any means.I did not order anything. I was only reading about this money making scam. Went to pick up a pizza and my bankcard was denied. This was fraud.

    i was just signed for a training package at US$150. after reading all your comments I then realised that i have just became another fool.

    at first 1 paid $1.95 to start off the program, 5 days later they charged me $29.95 for a monthly maintenance fee for website.

    i so regretted that i should have done research first although i knew that i should do it before sign up the program.

    what should i do now ???

    Without any doubt one of the biggest fraud scams to lure work at home moms. Eventually, the attorney generals of each state will shut her down. Simply, don’t get involved and don’t waste your hard earned money, been on the Internet for over ten years and I do know what I’m talking about. Scam, just stay away.

    I just like to say that hold on to your money before you send any private information like your credit card they tell you to wait 10 days so they will get your money ahead of time and you cannot stop the check or put a stop payment on it I tried that and lost my money they said I waited too long and all I was doing was waiting for the package don’t make the same mistake like I did just like they said this Kelly richard is a scam

    Kelly Richards is not only a scam, but the scammers behind it have been illegally using the names of reputable organizations to advance their fraud. I have reported it to several companies in New Zealand whose names appeared in adverts on Facebook that could be traced back to Kelly Richards.

    all of you who actually tried this and had any thought that it was real are morons. There is no such thing as a legit “get rich quick from home” scheme, it’s all fabricated to get ppl with no education to click and put your credit cards down.

    She’s in NZ as well, or the ad I read was. But when I googled for her blog came up with this site and another one about the scam. Other finds were of her in NZ and London!
    But as another reviewer said the postings of how fabulous this system was were suspicious particularly the same ‘named’ people asking questions and in less than 12 hours having received their first cheque.
    Thanks

    I tried posting the link of this site on Kelly Richards’ online website: Single Mom Makes $7487/Mo Without Selling Anything (http://www.guesthostfaq.com/) and it didn’t allow me. I received a message saying my comments are waiting for approval. If they are asking people to COMMENT then why do they need to approve it. This tells me all the comments on that site are fake.

    I was scammed. Kelly Richards from Sydney and further listing on the page London?? Where is she really?

    The latest ‘shop front’ for this program is Dynamix7.com
    AVOID!

    Despite Kelly saying there is “Nothing to buy or sell”
    (Deceptive/fraudulent advertising)

    They will attempt to hard sell you training programs at exorbitant prices: Dependent on your credit card limits.

    Ranging from $4,995US for the ‘Ultimate Package’, which promises 1-1 weekly training for 18 months. SEO Training and 30,000 hits to your *website blah.. blah…

    To the ‘Basic package’ for $1,450US for 4 months ‘training’

    *Which is set up for you automatically as an Affiliate/Associate for Amazon.com. Amazon are NOT involved in this scam at all.

    I have sourced many, many people who have lost high thousands of $$$’s and not one who has actually made real money. The odd $25 here and there.
    Nothing as ‘promised’ in telephone conversations with sales team members

    Research has taken 27 days to reach this point of getting the word out!
    Only 50% of those scammed actually report it. Name & Shame

    Well said. I fell for it…. as I was refreshing my CV and searching for info on jobs… Though, it was pretty clear to me from the moment I read the second “training” page, that something was fishy – not as easy s the article described, but the curiosity was taking over – to pay $50 did not look too big of a loss in case my suspicions came true, but eventually the bill was presented of 61 EUR… and I still paid it – SHAME on ME!!! It happens to desperate people – I guess, but it was a sign for me to SLOW DOWN and think before any action. SO, guys who will read this page – SCAM and one more time SCAM!!!!

    The question is, whilst they have used deceptive means to get you to sign up to their site, is there any proof that what they offer does not help you generate an income? And if you can get an income from it, whats the monthly average or is there absolute proof that this is a scam outright and you do not make any money? I ask this because I can see its been operating for a long time and so if we are to believe it is an out right scam why hasnt the company Universal Web Consulting who uses this ad,been close down?

    I fell for this scam paid the money and shortly after regreted my decision. I called their costumer service and threated a law suit and to file a complaint with ftc. they refunded my money but said it would take 5-10 buisness days. I don’t know if they truly refunded my account yet but i will follow through with my report to ftc. whether or not they do.

    This ad shows my name in Winnipeg, MB, Canada. There is only one other Kelly Richards and is a man, his real name is Kelvin and he uses the nickname Kelly. I on the other hand have no contact or association with this company. Yet is says Kelly Richards of Winnipeg, MB. I only wish I made that kind of money. I certainly don’t make $217.00 part-time like they say I do. THIS IS A SCAM.

    This one’s circulating Facebook like crazy!! It’s posting under the I Love My Husband page. I think they may have something to do with it cuz when u go to their profileS (plural), there’s 100s or even 1000s of “likes”, but only one post and 2 comments!
    It tells of a work at home job offer with only 30-some positions left and urges u to hurry! Then, when u click on the link, u get the fake newspaper “NewsDaily 7″ featuring Kelly Richards just as u mention. “as seen on MSNBC, USA Today, BBC, CNN etc. Also features “HOME INCOME SYSTEM” click heres to find out (learn more), It’s the example u show here on this site..maybe exactly…wasn’t local tho. Then, when u click, it gives u no price/terms…unless u give ur name, email, and phone #. SCAM, SCAM,SCAM!!!! Thank GOD I knew not to go even that far![_extra_org]0/_extra_org]

    I almost fell for this, it even has people with pictures of paycheques, I mean what the hell?

    I read the fine print that states you’ll be charged 65.99 at the end of the trial and every month after that.That was my only indication, because the rest is just so bloody convincing.

    I was shocked to see my local newspaper had her in it as we are a very small country (New Zealand).

    Thank GOD for people like you.

    SCAM for sure. Enough to check the “comments” of all happy participants – names, posts, texts are all the same, even the order of postings is the same. And if you bother yourself to open the add link twice in 24 hours, you’ll see another interesting detail – all dates changed, BUT the hours, plus all above mentioned remain the same, which simply is not possible to a real comments’ board.

    So, bottom line – if you have a spare $20, better buy some beer:)

    Or – donate to the Red Cross,

    imho!

    Thanks,

    I saw on one of the Kelly Richards sites that, supposedly, the kit you have to buy to become rich is going to be sold out REAL SOON, so you have to hurry and buy it before Feb. 21……2011.
    Yep. 2011.

    You’re absolutely right. Moreover, when I accidentally clicked on a link to a “Kelly Richards” advertisement (it’s on Careerbuilder, by the way, disguised as a “Data Entry” job), I saw the “comments” which I have already seen – AND there was one funny thing which I noticed: there is a time/date mark in each “comment” indicating when it was “posted”. Well, while they all showed today’s date (which is already very singular), the times were for some reason indicated AHEAD of real time! For example, I saw “2/18/2012, 8.30 a.m.” when the actual time was only 0.30 a.m.! Looks like Kelly Richards gets comments from the future… Well, to be serious, it’s another proof that it’s indeed just a fake page.
