A Little Bit More About VegasChris of MoneyMakerDiscussion.com

On MMD there is a thread titled Hello! started by OnlineMom to introduce herself to the forum. VegasChris, being the polite man that he is, welcomes her and tells her a little about himself.

Welcome Online Mom. I as the VP of a national Mortgage company. Now I work from home as a full time IM’er (Internet marketer)

Our friend Chris Lawell was also once the Vice President of a mortgage company, Ace Mortgage Funding. (Click the image to enlarge it.)

In a previous post I showed you a screen shot of a past version of VegasChris’ profile where he used the name AnitaJohnson. In that profile he used his posting signature to promote the company InCorp of Henderson, Nevada. Look again at the URL for the link to InCorp which you can see in the browser status bar:

The URL that MMD redirects you to when you click the InCorp link is

http%3A%2F%2Fwww.InCorp.com%2Fdefault.aspx%3Freferredbyaccountid%3D65123

which gets decoded to

http://www.incorp.com/default.aspx?referredbyaccountid=65123

See that portion of the URL after the question mark? That tells us the the account ID of the affiliate who is directing Web traffic to InCorp’s website. Using that ID, InCorp could tell us exactly who this VegasChris, the man who hires people to spam Craigslist with fake dating ads to promote porn sites, really is.

VegasChris of CLI in Henderson

Christopher Lawell said in his explanation that he has “not posted on Craigslist more than 1 ad per month (probably longer) in years.” Could this be because he hires others to post for him? On the site Freelancer.co.nz there is a user who goes by the name of VegasChris. His profile states that he is with the company CLI in Henderson. He has posted some interesting ads.

On 1/14/2010, he posted an ad looking for a CL, BP and other classified sites poster.

Want an experienced poster for Backpage and Craigslist. MUST be experienced and able to successfully post on both sites.

Will compensate based off responses. Starting at $75 per 1k, will pay more based off the quality of conversions.

Posts are for NSA (W4M) ad category. You must provide ad content and forward replies to specific email address I provide in real time.

Will test work with a daily payout. Would like to escalate to a regular weekly order with successful traffic.

Being able to drive traffic from additional classified sites a plus.

He later posted a similar ad on 1/19/2010. Earlier, he was looking to buy 5000 Hotmail accounts, and the last ad he posted was for a ghost writer for articles about iGaming, the industry in which Chris Lawell says he does his internet marketing business.

There’s another VegasChris on the web who places ads for Craigslist posters, VegasChris of MoneyMakerDisscusion.com. He used to use the name AnitaJohnson. This old version of his MMD profile is still in Google’s cache. To see that this is an old version of VegasChris’ profile, hover over the link labelled Find All Posts and look at the browser status bar. You’ll see that the userid for the profile is 61348, the same as the userid for VegasChris. (Click the image to enlarge it.)

When you click on the link to InCorp Entity Structuring in the cached profile’s signature, you are taken to InCorp.com, a company in Henderson, Nevada.

So this VegasChris also has a Henderson, Nevada connection and could very well be the same person as the other one.

On 4/26/2010, the MMD VegasChris posted the thread Looking for a craigslist poster.

I am looking to buy CL posting service or W4M lead provider in real time and exclusive.

Contact me via pm.

On 11/16/2009, he posted Looking for a CL poster.

Need a poster for adult content on CL.

Let me know what you charge. Would be willing to spend $200 a day (or more) for the right traffic.

Will start immediately.

On 11/3/2009, he posted Looking for a reliable poster on CL.

I am looking to hire a regular CL poster.

Can be creative when it comes to compensation. Would consider pay per post or JV per sale.

dating in W4M section. Possibly other areas.

Please pm me for discussion.

What both of these guys (and they’re probably the same person) are doing here is hiring people to spam the dating sections of Craigslist with fake ads. This is done to promote real dating sites, or to promote fake dating sites used to trick people into signing up for porn sites, and sometimes to promote just plain upfront porn sites.
