Computer Activity Review
Computer Activity is a work from home link posting job scam and is from the fictitious Amy Ross or other fake name.
This scam is found at computer-activity.com-2023-start.info and is one of the most pervasive on the internet.
The page is titled “Computer Activity, #1 Choice for Success Online”.
The listed owner of this scam is Digital Resources, LLC System.
Digital Resources has an F rating with the BBB.
The site shows the full scam name to be “The Computer Activity System”.
Scams such as these stem from the website topjobsreviewed.com with the title of Top 3 Work At Home Jobs Reviewed and a fictitious author named Sarah Johnson.
All content, including the testimonials, on Top Jobs Reviewed, is also completely fake.

The actual domain name of this scam is com-2023-start.info with a leading subdomain of computer-activity.
The scammers want visitors to think the site’s domain name is computer-activity.com or computeractivity.com.
The actual computer-activity.com domain resolves to absolutely nothing.
com-2022-start.info is simply a domain hack of a .info domain with a leading “com-“.
I mention this because they use similar domains with their other scam sites and it’s an easy way to spot them.
In the future when they come out with the next variation of this scam it’ll be tougher for them to appear different knowing this.
Specifically, anything from “com-2023.info”, “com-trends-2023.info”, “com-2023-start.info”, or anything else starting with a “com-” and ending with a “.info” domain extension is one of their scams.
It seems that they use the “.info” domain extension instead of a “.com” extension because most people don’t understand that there are hundreds of other domain name extensions beyond the most well-known “.com, “.net” and “.org” domain name extensions.
They do this because when one of their scam pages is exposed on a wide enough scale and their rip-off isn’t making them as much money as when it started…
They simply delete that and just start up a new sub-domain all while keeping the same .info domain itself.
Yeah, they really are that cheap.
Years ago they went through a lot of domain names as reporting sites such as this were constantly exposing them forcing them to a new domain almost every week.
Now they can simply keep the same domain name and easily move on to the next sub-domain at a whim without the hassle of adding a new website or domain name.
The “Working From Home Has Been Featured On” image at the top of the page is one of the most ridiculous things on there.
It’s a 100% generic blanket statement that has absolutely nothing to do with this specific business (scam).
Of course, “working from home businesses” have been featured on those news channels, but Computer Activity never has and never will be.
For those that are not paying attention, which they are counting on, it will seem as though this business has been featured on those news stations instead.
The “there are currently spots available” spiel at the top of the page is simply an attempt to fool unsuspecting people into believing that this opportunity is limited and real.
Therefore encouraging immediate action to purchase this income opportunity right now.
The Computer Activity sales letter goes into how great it would be to work from home.
They give you a fake sob story about how Amy Ross was down on her luck until she came across this super-duper system that changed everything for her.
Amy Ross is just a pen name?
More like a fake name.
My name is Amy Ross (it’s my pen name, I don’t use my real name anymore because the Internet can be a crazy place).
Everything on this page is the same old, same old worn-out tired story they’ve been using for years without much variation.
All of the “what other people have to say” blurbs are completely fake and try to sell you from there as well.
After some more lies, they go into how much you can potentially make with this supposed work at home opportunity.
These people made up this fictitious “link posting” thing.
There is no such job or position in reality.
They go into saying that you could earn $225 an hour by simply doing these easy “4-minute link posts”.
That works out to be $1,125 a week, $4,500 per month, and $58,500 per year working just 1 hour per day 5 days per week.
Wow!… where do I sign up for that?
They fake try to curb your enthusiasm by telling you that these figures are for example purposes only.
But the seed is already planted in your head that you can make this life-changing money for very little work.
How could I resist?
After all, it’s only $47.
You get the Computer Activity “Training – Education Development Center” that teaches you how to post links from home.
And they have a 100% 60 Day Money Back Guarantee… right?
This just has to be a legitimate work at home job.
If it doesn’t work out, I could just give them a call and get all my money back…
You can call and call and call some more and you will never get ahold of anyone that can help you get your money back.
This is by design.
This leaves you with 2 options.
Accept your losses or do a chargeback on your credit card.
Save yourself the hassle and have nothing to do with these ComputerActivity scammers!
Thanks for reading our work at home Computer Activity review.

I fell for this scam. They are currently calling this Your Computer. I bought a $37 kit. The next day I was bombarded with Scam calls and texts. I finally called one of the ‘Advanced Team members’ back. He was asking some very invasive personal questions. I became suspicious, told him I believed this to be a scam, and hung up. Now I am very nervous of what damage this company will do with what little info I gave them.
Hi Mary, This is a well-known scam that has been around for at least 5 years. Today it’s called “Your Computer” and tomorrow they will call it “My Computer” or something else with the word “Computer” in it. Request a refund at that $37 if they haven’t refunded it yet. If they refuse, just get with your credit card bank and tell them that you need to do a chargeback on this citing fraud. Once they understand that you know that it’s a scam they will likely not contact you again nor do anything else with your info as there is no money to get out of you from this point forward. They are spending their time trying to scam others that haven’t figured out that it’s a scam yet. – David
Thanks so much I wish I had read your review earlier. Before I fell for this scam. Oh well, I’m pissed off at myself but I learned a lesson.
