Data Entry Job Platform
Are Smarttechtyping & Infobloxtyping Fake or Real?
Why are Smarttechtyping & Infobloxtyping Fake?
Smarttechtyping & Infobloxtyping are websites that claim to help workers earn money through data entry work. I am grouping the websites together as they are both identical and even have the same content. For the purpose of this review, I will be looking mainly at Smarttechtyping.
The most obvious sign that these sites are scams is that they are asking users to pay a fee for purchasing ‘packages’ before they can start earning. No legitimate company will ever ask workers to pay them for any reason as fees are deducted from the payment itself.
Domain name lookups of the website show that both the sites were registered just days apart, suggesting that they may be operated by the same owners. Infobloxtyping was registered on 12th February 2020 and Smarttechtyping was registered on 15th February 2020.
Infobloxtyping has apparently been registered by someone named ‘Amir Rafeeq’ in Pakistan while the registration information of Smarttechtyping has been hidden using a paid service. Therefore, these are new websites and one of them has been registered anonymously.
Even though it is clear that Infobloxtyping did not exist before February 2020, the website falsely claims that the company is active since 2009. The footer of the website also contains a lie that the site has been active since 2016. There is no evidence to suggest that any of this is true.
The overall quality of the websites is quite poor as there are several language errors in the text. Therefore, it does not look like that the websites are operated by genuine professionals. Smarttechtyping’s website isn’t even complete as the About Us section contains dummy text.
Like most fake data entry job sites, Smarttechtyping and Infobloxtyping try to show ‘proof’ that they actually pay users who register on the platforms. However, this proof is fake as both sites carry the same image.
Even though Smarttechtyping’s website contains social media links, these are fake as they lead nowhere. I could not find any social media pages for Smarttechtyping or Infobloxtyping.
The websites include absolutely no information about the company or the people running it. Smarttechtyping’s contact details only include an email ID and two WhatsApp numbers. There is also an address section but no real address has been provided. The phone numbers are being operated anonymously as they display no profile picture or username on WhatsApp.
I could not find any reviews for Infobloxtyping online. However, there are quite a few reviews for Smarttechtyping which clearly show that it is a scam. Users have stated that they were blocked as soon as they paid to purchase the company’s ‘packages’.
It is quite obvious that Smarttechtyping and Infobloxtyping are data entry job scams. The websites have been created just days apart in February 2020. They are run anonymously as they do not contain any information about the company and its management team. There is no reason to believe that these are genuine companies as they are asking users to purchase ‘packages’ in advance. No real company asks workers to pay them before they can earn.
The About Us page and website footer of Infobloxtyping falsely mention that the company has been active from 2009 and 2016. There is no evidence that Infobloxtyping existed before February 2020. Smarttechtyping’s website has not even completed as the About Us section still contains dummy text, nearly two years after the site was created.
The payment proof given on the website is fake and the social media links do not work. The only real way to contact Smarttechtyping and Infobloxtyping is through WhatsApp. The WhatsApp numbers are being operated anonymously too as they don’t even have a profile picture or username.
While no reviews for Infobloxtyping could be found, reviews for Smarttechtyping mention that it is an Advance Fee Scam that asks workers to purchase ‘packages’ before they can start working and earning on the platform. Once the fee has been paid, the scammers behind Smarttechtyping block the users.
It is advisable to avoid signing up with Smarttechtyping and Infobloxtyping as there are no reasons to believe that they are genuine data entry job providers. Legitimate companies will never ask you to pay them for any reason. If you have been scammed by these sites, you can file a police complaint and request your bank to reverse the transaction.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
