[the post have been updated 16/12 2011, see end of post] oooh..! Wait a minute, I don’t want to buy free coins! Do you? :lol: But I am really wondering what there might be in those files that claims to give you hearts, energy, unlimited life and humongous amounts of in-game coins, that up loaders try to sell to people through Youtube videos. I found many users on Youtube that have uploaded guides on what their programs supposedly do. They all have the same in common, they doesn’t show any proof that something actually would be added. I.e because they do not have enough video editing skills to add the proof, I suppose. The videos are maybe stolen or shared, the same video accursed many times, you see.
This people links in the videos or in the descriptions to download places on different locations on the Interweeebz, the one thing the download sites seem to have in common is… Surveys!!! You get an announcement to take a survey, where you probably end up e-mail-spammed as hell or loosing money on sending messages with your phone. Yes of course, you get those zillions of facebook coins, game energy, a boyfriend, eternal life for free, I almost forgot. ;-)
I added a few example videos in the end of the post, they are all the same genre, promising a lot, proof of nothing. I added so many videos, because I think they are going to be removed from Youtube ASAP. At least I hope so. There are very many videos like this on Youtube right now, I flagged a few, but clicking and flagging hundreds of videos doesn’t seem that good idea. :P
I read the description on one of these sites that offers the paid download surveys:
ShareCash is a revolutionary, next-generation upload site, where you get paid CASH for every download you get! We offer the highest payouts per download, as well as a set of great tools, tutorials, and support to get you earning in no time. Simply register, upload files, and let the cash start rolling in!
So in the end there is probably some non-working java-apps to download and no risk to get juicy viruses. If you get really unlucky you don’t even get anything that looks like a program to hack Bubble Witch Saga, they might just let you download their failed mathematics tests.
Try to swim safe, my fellow bubblers, you actually just have to remember one single thing:
If it seems to good to be true, it probably is to good to be true!
[update 16/12 2011] I got a comment in my inbox on Facebook, that tipsed me that there actually are people that have tried to use cheats like this. Someone have got even a login-success with facebook actually, witch suprises me greatly. But none of the five angry feedbacks have got extra life’s as promised. One ended up with 18£ phone bill. Oh my God, he/she could have bought so many in-game goodies for that money, poor bastard. You can read the comments yourself.
[25/12 2011] I found this on vimeo as well, same bullshit as fpund on youtube I think?
