If you are unfamiliar with this scam, search for “teds woodworking” with the LJ search.

Just wondering…

Has anyone here ever actually Bought his plans and know, first-hand about it?

I’ll bet he’s making a good living off the suckers that bite at least once!

It looks like someone in charge here, perhaps Cricket, has taken care of this user. His posts are gone and his profile has been suitably updated.

Thanks for the quick action!

My wife and all these women in our valley have had a forum for about ten years. Unless you are a woman of the valley or a woman friend of the valley no one else can be a member of it. No one can even read their forum unless they’re a member.

I set the forum up for them and it’s all about cooking, recipes, gardening, flowers, sewing, knitting, their pets, horses etc. When a lady joins their forum, by invitation only, the lady’s first three post have to be approved by one of them. This is how they stop spam bots from making post and spamming their forum. They also have forum on their community that says arts and crafts and that’s what Ted’s spam bots are reading.

Ole Ted has hit their forum several times so that would tell me Ted is a spam bot trying to do the spam and scam thing, A bot is a computer program that someone has written, and in ole Ted’s case, to send spam to forums and email addresses.

If you notice when Ted, and anyone like him, makes a spam link on a forum you will see 99% of the time the poster has made only one post. If they’ve made several post before the link to old Ted websites show up then most likely they’re a paid affiliate of the Ted spam group to make post on forums, especially anything to do with woodworking.

Probably 99% of the spam you see in your email spam folder is a spam bot.

There are 100’s of different BBB offices that have closed 1000’s of complaints against Ted’s Woodworking because they couldn’t find the business.
