Consumersoft – The hard truth

Dansk version I bunden!

Have you ever got a call from a company telling you that, your pc got a virus or that your pc is sending them errors? Yeah, those annoying ppl. Now, would you believe me if I told you, that a Microsoft Certified Partner is doing just that?

Say hello to Consumersoft.com, a US company that does just that, use phone scammers for their support and own multiple (sketchy) websites, makes fake/malware rated software.

Their Microsoft page showing them as a partner: Here.

Recently, I have done some research on this company and have found some very disturbing things and I’m gonna show to you, the hard facts about this company.
Let’s get started.

The company owns the following domains:

The best advice is, to avoid these domains, this company and anything related to these people.

Consumersoft made some software to clean your computer and make it faster ( NOT ). It’s named: My Faster PC. It’s telling wrong information and is marked as malware by multiple anti-virus vendors. Proof: Here
They also made other software like, MyBackupdrive.com that have some REALLY bad security, showing the password you type.

They also seem to be targeting scambaiters, thinking they can take them to court: Youtube video! If you are not familiar with the term “Scambaiting”, its when you lure scammers into a trap so you can expose them.
Consumersoft was rewarded with “one of the fastest growing tech companies in 2012” by Inc 500.
He says he runs the company legit and they never scam, but there are so much proof that they are malware.
No one should trust a company that can’t answer, that you have to pay to get your things cleaned for you.
You might be thinking wait, how can a Microsoft Partner be doing this without being shutdown/busted? That’s anyone’s guess but, its time the hard truth comes out!

Quick things to note:

Their website looks like absolute SHIT.
Their software looks so sketchy and looks like other malware filled software out there.
They are partners with Microsoft, but their software is not trusted by SmartScreen and Windows defender, in fact, multiple software vendors report it as a potentially unwanted program (pup):

Last words:

This is too ‘out there’ for the CEO not being able to see they got a serious trust issue on their hands and they gotta stop and figure out how they can gain that needed trust back, if possible.

This post can and will be updated, so stay tuned for updates!

Har du nogensinde fået et opkald fra et firma, der fortæller dig, at din pc har en virus eller at din pc sender fejl til et deres servere? Ja, de opkald der kommer fra Indisk talende personer? Vil du tro på mig, hvis jeg fortalte dig, at en Microsoft Certified Partner gør netop det?

Sig goddag til Consumersoft.com, et amerikansk firma, der bruger telefonsvindlere til at lave support og ejer flere sketchy hjemmesider, giver falsk support og laver programmer der indeholder malware/spyware.

Deres Microsoft-side viser dem som en partner: Her.

For nylig har jeg lavet nogle undersøgelser på dette firma og har fundet nogle skræmmende ting, og jeg vil vise dig beviser på dette firma er et svindel firma.
Lad os komme igang.

Virksomheden ejer følgende domæner:

Det bedste råd er, for at undgå disse domæner, dette selskab og alt relateret til disse mennesker.

Consumersoft lavede et par programmer til at rense din computer og gøre det hurtigere (NOT). Det hedder: My Fatser PC. Det fortæller forkerte oplysninger og er markeret som malware af flere anitvirusleverandører inklusiv Microsoft’s egen Windows defender. Bevis: Her
De lavede også anden software som MyBackupdrive.com, der har nogle virkelig dårlig sikkerhed, viser den adgangskode, du skriver.

De prøver også på at gå målrettet mod scambaitere, idet de tror at de kan gå rettens vej: Youtube video! Hvis du ikke er bekendt med udtrykket “scambaiting”, så er det når du lokker svindlere i en fælde, så du kan afsløre dem.
Consumersoft blev belønnet med “One of the fastest growing tech companies in 2012” (“En af de hurtigste voksende tech firmaer i 2012”) af Inc 500.
Ejeren siger at han driver firmaet legitimt og de aldrig svindler, men der er så mange beviser for at de er et svindel firma.
Ingen bør stole på et firma, der bruger kendte Indiske telefon svindlere og har forbindelser til malware udvikling.
Du tænker måske “Jamen vent”, hvordan kan en Microsoft-partner gøre det uden at blive opdaget? Det er et godt spørgsmål, men det er tid sandheden kommer ud!

Et par ting at nottere sig omkring det her firma:
Deres hjemmesider er dårlig designede.
Deres programmer ligner andre skadelige programmer.

De er partnere med Microsoft, men deres software er ikke betroet af SmartScreen og Windows Defender. Faktisk rapporterer flere softwareleverandører det som potentielt uønsket program (pup) og direkte malware:

Sidste ord:

Jeg forstår ikke den administrerende direktør ikke er i stand til at se, at de har et seriøst tillidsproblem i deres firma og de kan ikke genvinde deres tillid uden seriøse ændringer.
