ProfitMaximizer.co – Spread

The ProfitMaximizer.co website could be spread throughout various sources. An adware application exists, which comes together with installer setups of freeware and bundled programs. These installations can push additional components inside your personal computer, without you knowing about it. Such setups are set by default to do that. Avoiding any similar installations that can get you unwanted components, is doable if you find a Custom or an Advanced options menu in the setup to deselect them.

ProfitMaximizer.co could also be spread with the help of redirects and advertisements that are hosted on similar scam web pages. One of the main redirects is ProfitMaximizer.net and it will land you back on the .co domain. Pop-ups, pop-unders, banners and full-page adverts might also have the ability to redirect you. The adware is very intrusive and can be injected into your computer machine from different places. Browsers which could be affected are: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari.

ProfitMaximizer.co – Information

ProfitMaximizer.co is website that is trying to scam people. The website seems to have a mirror domain, which is found under the name “ProfitMaximizer.net.” The site pushes all sorts of advertisements. Thus, it is considered as an adware. It seems like a copy of the Russian scam hosted by Chain-reaction-pro.co website.

Here you can view how the main page of the scamming website looks:

The ProfitMaximizer.co website is an obvious scam, although it might not seem exactly so, to people inexperienced with such schemes. Redirects and advertisement content like the endlessly appearing pop-up messages all work in making the scam look like a legitimate money-making strategy. The scam video on the site cleverly tries to imply that is not a scam like the ones promoting to net you 1000 US dollars to your wallet. The irony here is that the website is exactly like those other such schemes – it promotes ways to get you 1219 US dollars for a single day without working or spending other money.

This is how the main page of the website looks like:

stf-profitmaximizer-co-profit-maximizer-scam-ads-adware-pop-up

The advertisement pop-up shown above is translated to the language you have set as preferred on your computer system, so that means that the website gathers information about you and your computer configuration.

Here is what that advert reads in English:

WARNING!

ProfitMaximizer.co can generate redirects, which can land you onto outbound websites many of which might be blocked by Antivirus and security software. Do not believe that the site is a 100% safe site from the “certificates” found on its main page – they are fake. You shouldn’t trust the pop-ups and message boxes that support the scam either. Refrain from clicking on anything which shows up in a separate window, link and message. Some of these adverts and message boxes could have text inside them.

Advertisements can display one of the following texts:

  • Ads by ProfitMaximizer.co
  • Advertisement by ProfitMaximizer.co
  • Ad by ProfitMaximizer.co
  • Advert from ProfitMaximizer.co
  • Powered by ProfitMaximizer.co
  • Brought to you by ProfitMaximizer.co
  • Ads by ProfitMaximizer.net
  • Advertisement by ProfitMaximizer.net
  • Ad by ProfitMaximizer.net
  • Advert from ProfitMaximizer.net
  • Powered by ProfitMaximizer.net
  • Brought to you by ProfitMaximizer.net

All of the redirects have another purpose than just supporting the scam – that is to make additional money for the website owners. That is possible via a pay-per-click scheme. Advertisements like pop-ups might be connected to various affiliates of the adware creators. Adverts associated with ProfitMaximizer.co could display in your browsers at random times in different forms. The most common shapes that the ads take is as pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, and full-page ads, but interstitial, transitional and slider ad types are not excluded from showing, too.
