Ran across this in my travels today. For $27, marked down from 99.95, you can join this place and get unlimited uploads. Not sure where you upload to. Somewhere I read that they provide you a list of places to upload to (like we can't find that out ourselves for free).

I am particularly impressed by the fact that the word Photography is misspelled in the logo at the top left.

Just curious.

Looks like a typical "Work At Home and Make $$$" scam.

What do you mean? I can make $10,000 a month from the comfort of my home? Plus huge bonuses never before seen?

If she can do, why can't I? Where do I sign up?

Yeah, pretty much. I am always interested in companies whereby I am trying to earn money and make a living, but I have to pay them to do it.

And to think that it's possible to sell ALL my images everyday! How cool is that?

I'm pulling all my images from IS, SS, DT, and FT right now to get in on this fabulous opportunity. And they're only charging $27?? How can they do it so cheaply? I hope they have an exclusivity feature!

   And I'm putting my Canon Mark III and all my lenses on ebay tonight!!!

   Hey, anyone know where I can buy some Lehman Brothers bonds?

We should find some way to market this on all those microstock blogs - divert the happy snappers to this much more lucrative opportunity and away from the thankless task of uploading to micros ;)

Scam site developer. You may find connections with louie pixelwise, pixelwise Inc., Boxingcollection.com, GamingJobsOnline.com, and who knows how many others like this. The subject site is [email protected], contact on the whois record of 5 domains, - Pixelwise Incorporated. You can start to see the web and connections from this...  [email protected] is associated with about 21 domains

Fake phone numbers are the same on these sites, but the fake address moves around, Philippines on one, CA on another.

Here's one of his sites exposed:

It actually looks like that the SLR was photoshopped into that image. It appears the guy was using a P&S camera.

Cracks me up:

... After 1 year and over 900 pictures submitted I was making over $23,000 a month from my pictures...

People obviously believe anything.

LOL I tried to search the images on that page with tineye...

The "Scott Paterson" guy is really Nigel Brennan http://www.smh.com.au/world/kidnapped-journalists-15-months-of-hell-is-over-20091126-js52.html

and "Ramy Johnson" is really Owen Thomas http://www.mediabistro.com/fishbowlny/revolving_door/owen_thomas_joins_venturebeat_as_executive_editor_156147.asp

After clicking "click here to join":

"Henry Williams" -> Guy in Nikon user guide http://www.photo-i.co.uk/DVD/Nikon/Nikon%20D40X.html

"Emma Johnson" -> Some girl with camera http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=4351833

The last gullible Americans were the turkeys on the beach that thought the Pilgrim Fathers were going to feed them.

Please specify that you are referring to USAr's.  We Brazilians, and many others, are Americans too.

Geographically but certainly not as a people. No,  Americans are USAers.

USArs may be called Americans, but being American doesn't necessarily mean being a USArs.  I am American too.  America is not the USA.  I am a Latin American, but I am not a "Latino" in the racial/ethnical sense the word has (which I consider inappropriate exactly because Latin America is a cauldron of races).

(sorry for totally diverting from the original thread!)

Well, I'm from New Zealand, so we refer to most people from other places by the same title most Americans use for us: 'Where?'
