Beware Of Resteeming Services!

Hi Steemians! Just a quick public service announcement concerning smart use of your investment monies on steemit.

I've noticed in my wallet lately a bunch of new "services" sending a 0.0001 steem or sbd to entice you to go to their blog page.

Their tagline is offering to resteem your content to their massive follower list like a bot in return for 0.7 sbd/steem.

Now, their profiles definitely do have those followers, but I did a little digging because it just seemed fishy that so many are popping up!

I looked up for example @sharenow on steemd just to see their real reputation, age etc.

It turns out that this particular user is only 62 days old, and at a reputation of 25. This doesn't reflect a user who truly has 12000+ followers.

Likely, they are just making dummy accounts and then following their main "money maker" account to make it look like your content will go out to 12000+ users, but in reality it's landing in dead accounts and you will be throwing away 0.7sbd each time you do it.

I do see the value in legitimate voting bots and authentic users with large networks resteeming your content as a way to "climb the ladder" as it were, but these new crafty people are scamming in a big way!

Our communities on steemit are built on trust and integrity and this kind of behaviour violates what we all stand for.

Be careful out there and make sure you do your due diligence before wasting a bunch of hard earned SBD on fakes!

That's all for now, have a great day!

Cheers,

Chris

@bycoleman I feel this article pertains especially to new people who are the most vulnerable and who are posting in this tag, it is not used to gain votes, more to provide more awareness

Thanks for the reply.

A very large percentage of the articles posted by Stemians apply to themselves or newbies, yet there is only one time each us needs to introduce ourselves . There are many other tags that will work very well for your post, please consider them.

Thanks for helping making Steemit relevant.

Lol thanks ok will do

You are welcome

I have had these as well, very annoying clogging up my wallet with their spammy messages. Personally I use @resteembot which requires a payment equivalent to your reputation ie I have to send 0.063 with my page link in the memo. To be honest I don't know if resteem services help you get seen more - but more resteems do help a post trend a little higher - amongst all the other factors that affect that.

Yep there definitely are some legit resteem bots, the likelihood of getting many more votes for doing it are negligible from what I've seen so far, it's like the Twitter feed idiocy where they resteem so many posts that yours is kicked down the page and out of sight in a matter of a few minutes so did it really help? I don't reckon so

Couldn't agree more. I am seeing more and more of these. I can say its only a shame they dont send more SBD LOL.

Yes, I have noticed the same thing and you beat me to writing about it! all of them are of very low reputation and just about no followers, I was wondering how they would pull it off?

·

Well i mean the ones I saw did have rather large followers but there's no way they are real followers like you and I get. They have to be dummy accounts or bot created.

·
·

I agree with you, and I actually just ignore them, the same goes for those that appear in my comments.

·
·
·

I have actually seen a couple that are worth the time, but I just shy away from them now, the payoff is hard to justify the cost

at the moment it seems the safer option especially with all the scammers around!
