File Sharing Scams

Services such as RapidShare, FileSonic etc. - should be boycotted.

The rub here is evidenced by the fact that there is a reseller program.

It doesn't matter if you have files and stuff that people want to download. Just say that you have and set up a billing system to sucker people in and then, after they have paid, they find out that you don't have what they are looking for. You may have suckered them in by giving a file that they were looking for and hopefully you have convinced them that you have a lot more of the same thing.

Once you have a "punter" signed up they have little chance of getting their money back.


  • Filesonic website - a list of resellers
  • Rapidshare reviewed on this blog
  • Alternative file sharing services (to P2P that is)
  • The SideReel Scam - a service that claims to have an archive of all TV shows, but doesn't
