Consumer Alerts Regarding Penguin Method

With the release of Penguin Method online, I’ve seen a large increase in the number of websites offering up fake reviews, fake discounts (or claiming free downloads), and doing other shady things to bring you to their sites.  Usually these sites are pretty easy to identify if you know what to look for.  Here’s how you can protect yourself.

1.) The Fake Scam Alert:

This is indicative of sites that usually use a title to their page that says something like, “Penguin Method SCAM!” or “Penguin Method: A Samantha Sanderson SCAM!” or something of that nature.  In other words, when you search for Penguin Method in Google or another search engine, these sites show up with those types of titles in the listings.

Sometimes these sites will also use what I call the “Fear Factor” in their headlines which is something like, “Penguin Method: OMG Just Awful!”.  This is often nothing more than an attempt to draw you into their site by making you think they used the product and had a really bad experience with it.

How do I know these are fake and not real scam alerts or legitimate complaints?  Because the title cries SCAM!!!!! or a really horrible experience, but then you go to the page and read the review and it’s always an extremely positive, glowing review about how great Penguin Method is, how much they love it, etc. etc.

In these instances, they only use the word SCAM to draw you into their site and not because they actually think the program is a scam or because they had a bad experience with it.  It’s simply a way to get you to click on their site because they know if they say something is a scam or a terrible program, you’ll probably click on their link to find out more about it, so you don’t get duped, right?

Honestly, it’s kind of tragic because a lot of really good programs get an immediate bad reputation when the first thing people see on Google is a bunch of listings that have the word “SCAM” in them…and for no other reason than some unscrupulous person trying to get a few more visitors to their own site.

A legitimate bad experience or a real scam alert to help protect consumers is one thing, but don’t fall for this type of trickery and trust your gut when the headline/page title and review don’t match.  These people don’t have your best interest at heart because no real Penguin Method review will cry SCAM or claim it’s a terrible program in the title only to offer up a review that says the complete opposite.

2.) The “Extra Special, Super Expensive” Bonus Package Alert:

With this nonsense, people who have no knowledge of the program offer up some sort of extra special bonus package if you purchase the product through their site.  Usually they mark it as something super valuable like $297 or $497 or something like that, but in reality it’s just a bunch of useless ebooks or Private Label Rights (PLR) that you can find online for free if you search for them.

Usually they aren’t even related to the actual product.  For example, they’ll be something like “Buy Penguin Method through the link below and I’ll send you “How To Build A Birdhouse” and these 10 other useless, unrelated, and free books that I’ve put a fake value of $497 on.”  Really? What does building a birdhouse have to do with building attraction and desire in your man?  That’s right, NOTHING!

To claim your bonus, they usually want you to email your purchase receipt to them so they can verify you bought from their site.  But then, guess what?  Now they have your email (not to mention your order details), and can start sending you a bunch of spam or even access the product using your information!  Stay away.

3.) The Fake Review:

This one is pretty common.  Anytime a product like Penguin Method gets popular online and people start to buy it, the fake reviews start coming out of the woodwork.  Here are some good ways to spot fake reviews.

*Poorly Written Content:

This is usually the result of people using software and “spinning tools” which auto-generate content or take previously written content and “spin it” by replacing some words with related synonyms.  Luckily for us, auto-generated content is pretty easy to spot so if you find yourself reading something that has really horrible grammar or makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, then don’t click on any links, hit your back button, and get out of there.  If you find yourself saying, “WTF did I just read?”, then it’s probably fake.

*Very Generic Content:

Fake reviews usually have very generic content and rarely provide any real details beyond what might be found on the product’s sales page.  Obviously, it’s hard to write any review without some generic statements, but if you’re getting the gut feeling they are being very vague and seem to be “skirting around the bush”, it’s probably because they have no idea what’s really inside the program.

*Keyword/Product Name Stuffing:

Fake reviews will often have the title of the program repeated over and over again and “forced” or “stuffed” into sentences.  For example, it might have sentences that say something like, “Penguin Method is a really awesome program so read this Penguin Method review and get the Penguin Method PDF by going here to download Penguin Method.”  People do this to try and rank their sites higher in Google, but if you see this sort of thing stay away!  Google usually does a pretty good job of filtering out these types of sites, but not always.

*More Things To Look For:

Other things to look for are an over-reliance on or excessively large buy now, download, and other types of buttons.  Sure, 1 or 2 buttons may be necessary to direct you where to get the program, but when they become the focal point of the page instead of the content and review itself, then it raises a red flag with me and I know that person doesn’t have my best interest at heart.

If you’re trying to be helpful by telling me about the program instead of just wanting my money, do I really need a huge red arrow from every corner of the page pointing at the download or buy button or the button repeated 25 times throughout the page?  I’m not blind.  I see it!  Really, I do.

I also always look to see if a review provides any specifics about the program.  Does it mention the number of pages in the ebook?  Does it list a table of contents or discuss what’s found in specific chapters?  Does it quote anything directly from the book?  Small details like this can be a big indicator of whether or not the reviewer has intimate inside knowledge of the program or if they are just making general statements based on what they may have seen on the sales page.

Some Thoughts On Testimonials:

Some of you have also asked me about my thoughts on Penguin Methodtestimonials, and personally I never try to let them influence me one way or another.  It’s kind of a love/hate relationship.  I love hearing other people’s success stories.  Some of them are truly inspiring.

But at the same time, testimonials online are easy to fake, almost impossible to verify, and I personally don’t like basing my decisions on the results someone else may or may not have achieved with a given program.

So I guess what I’m saying is always take testimonials with a grain of salt and realize that with any program, there’s going to be people who like it and who are successful and people who don’t like it or who aren’t successful for one reason or another.  I’m a big believer in trying something for myself if I want to determine whether it works or not.

And when programs like Penguin Method offer a 60-day, no questions asked money back guarantee, there’s really no harm in taking it for a test drive.  If using the techniques from the Penguin Method doesn’t help you create an amazing connection with the man you want, or if you find that you just aren’t able to successfully implement them for whatever reason, ask for your money back.  No harm.  No foul.

The only testimonials I tend to put a little more trust in are those that come from WITHIN a particular program.  For example, programs that offer members only forums and things like that.  These people have actually paid for the product (otherwise they wouldn’t have access to the forum), so that’s a much more reliable resource than some testimonial on a sales page or on another random site that could easily be faked.

I try to use my own access as a paying member to pull out some of these types of testimonials to share with my readers whenever I can.  I’ll do the same forPenguin Method.

4.) The Free Download Alert:

Just like the Fake Scam Alert, some sites will try to draw you in by claiming you can download Samantha Sanderson’s Penguin Method for free. Their page titles might be something like, “Penguin Method Free Download”.  Then, you get to the site, and they try to justify it by saying it’s “risk-free” and then point you to the website where it’s $47.  Well, to me risk-free and FREE aren’t the same thing!

While you can technically try Penguin Method risk-free because of the 60-day money back guarantee, you still need the money up front to buy it in the first place so it isn’t free.  Penguin Method is not a free program and any site claiming a free download is either not being totally honest with you or is providing illegal copies, neither of which is good.  Again, stay away.  It’s not worth the legal trouble.

The Penguin Method and Scams

Another version of this same thing is the fake discount. “Buy through this link for 50% off”.  Guess what, when you click the link, you go to the website where it’s $47, just like it normally is.

I actually first noticed this one on YouTube where people were making short 30 second videos claiming they found discount links to Penguin Method.  They usually have a page title that’s something like “Penguin Method Review And Discount Offer!”  However, every time I checked one out, it was a huge disappointment and offered no discount at all.

YouTube is becoming a real hot bed for this sort of thing.  It’s getting to the point where there are very few product related YouTube videos that I even trust anymore.  Most of these fake ones are pretty easy to spot though because the video usually won’t mention the product name.

Instead, it will be very generic so that the same video can be uploaded over and over again for different products.  For example, in the video they often won’t say, “I found a Penguin Method discount…”  Instead, they’ll say something a lot more generic like, “I was looking online for this product and if you also want a discount for this product, click the link below…”

These YouTube videos and discounts are fake 99.9% of the time.  I’ve never claimed to be a super genius when it comes to math, but something about the numbers just stinks…let’s see…$47 minus 50% discount through your link = $47!  Don’t fall for these fake discount claims.  I hope Google catches on at some point and starts cleaning up some of these videos.

One last thing I’ve seen in regards to this is that sometimes people will try to inflate the value of the program on their own site to make it appear like they are giving you a discount.  For example, they’ll say something like “Penguin Method is normally $197, but buy through my link for $47, a savings of 75%!”

Just another lie you should watch out for.  The price will always be $47 unless Samantha Sanderson decides to change it herself.  If she does, I’ll be sure to let everyone know!

But it becomes drop-dead simple once you learn this  weird little secret about penguins (it works no matter  your age, what your dress size is, or how your luck  with men has been going lately):
