Breaking News: The Google Internet Scam of The Millennium

We’ve been cloned on Google, Have You?

I’ve discovered what appears to be a cloned website with some of my company information posted on it. And of all places, wouldn’t you know it, right in plain site in the #1 slot on the Google search engine; And what appears be and may be the internet scam of the millennium.

To all our faithful members, customers, and visitors:
PLEASE NOTE: “Bradford LifeStyles” [.com], IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH, NOR ARE WE PARTNERED IN ANY WAY WITH ANY OF THE FOLLOWING COMPANIES:

“CASUAL LIVING” or “Progressive Business Media” of Greensboro, North Carolina, nor any of Progressive Business Media’s other subsidy’s (Designer Today, Furniture Today, Gifts and Decorative Accessories, HFN, Home Accents Today, Home Textiles Today, and Kids Today).

The screen shot below shows this “Casual Living” website, located at the top of the Google search engine, and appears to be a legitimate website of a Canadian business with the same name Bradford Lifestyles and a domain name and URL of “Casual Living [.com]” (note the lowercase “s” in Casual Livings Bradford Lifestyles is different than ours “Bradford LifeStyles” and our domain name and URL is bradfordlifestyles.com. The Email address shown; “info@bradfordlifestyles.com” does belong to me, and is an email of the domain BradfordLifeStyles.com; My Company: “Bradford LifeStyles”.

It is unclear to me at this time as to the how and why this happened or to what extent Google has been compromised and how many websites and or businesses have been effected, infected, and/or cloned. I’m putting this notice out as a public service notice and warning. My information is limited and sketchy, but it appears this site listed at the top of the Google search engine is a cloned site of Progressive Business Media’s subsidy Casual Living; or how this slipped under the radar of Google.

 

Obviously a scam of some sort by hackers, most likely an attempt to obtain personal and financial information from visitors to that url. When I examined the site coding with the google developer tools, the coding of this web page is embedded with hashchange code and a bunch of other geek gibberish javascript ect. which I don’t know and or understand. But anyway…My research results show a company by the name of “Global Shoe Connection” is located at the address listed in the shown google screenshot above.

This screen shot of Global Shoe Connection’s footer shows a different phone number than the one listed in the google search results above but the same address

 

I have notified the proper cyber crimes authorities in both the US and Canada and are awaiting their response.

To be safe and lean on the the side of caution; until further notice; I will ONLY be taking and filling orders by phone. Please use my contact page HERE to schedule a return phone call from me to place an order or request more information..

So…Ya, that’s it! Payment gateways are closed until further notice. But if you like anything here I offer on “Bradford LifeStyles”; Use the contact form and we’ll make a deal and I’ll hook you up.

Also please note; and rest assure; that our directory of U.S. Merchants and the url links are direct links to the merchants and businesses we have posted here on the Bradford LifeStyles web site and are perfectly safe and legitimate, and all are US Merchants and businesses.

Denim, Love, Romance & Global Travel

Denim, Love, Romance & Global Travel

It’s the stuff dreams are made of.

We have a unique young couple and story we’d like to share with everyone in this newsletter publication. It’s our pleasure sharing this wonderful story of love, romance, global travel, and Entrepreneurship. This story began for us months back when we received a new like on one of our newsletter publications by a cute and lovely young couple named Kelsey and Gavin Schmitt who at the time happened to be traveling the globe chronicling and sharing their travels with the world on their blog. Intrigued, we in turn began following Kelsey’s blog and the newlywed couple’s online journal as they traveled the globe highlighting and sharing their wonderful experiences and photography in each new publication of their newsletter. You can read about their travels, romances, and adventures by clicking their site Logo above.

Now stateside once again and living in sunny southern California, this young lovely couple continues to share their story with the world. We received some wonderful and exciting news in our inbox from them the other day and felt compelled to share it with our readers, and site members. The birth of their new born American Business. Below is an except from that email notification:

“Hi everyone, this past Sunday I launched my first official business! Pacific Denim Co. is a customizable denim jacket company. I have a passion for denim and wanted to give people the opportunity to create something that shows their own personal style or pick from one of our own designs!…and thank you so much for following my journey this far 🙂
GO TO PACIFIC DENIM CO.

We instantly fell in love with the new site Pacific Denim, it’s a simple, yet eloquent layout and design and has a great look and feel to it. The Navigation throughout the site’s a breeze, and the color coordination and imagery; makes for a nice comfortable, browsing and shopping experience, just like their travel blog. We think they did a fantastic job on this new website. But it gets even better than that: this young talented couple did all their own modeling and photography for the site and we’re sure there is lots more to come and we’re looking forward to their future newsletter publications and updates.

Bradford LifeStyles is happy to share and help introduce Pacific Denim to the world and extend our well wishes to these two young and talented entrepreneurs and wish this lovely young couple the best of luck and prosperity in their new business venture.

Their story is inspiring, it’s the kind of stuff dreams are made of, loving and living life to its fullest and working hard building those dreams. We’re proud to do our part to help make those dreams materialize and come true for this couple. They’ve done a fantastic job chronicling and sharing their travels around the globe and we’re sure they will be outstanding and successful business owners. We hope you’ll love them and will be as inspired as we here at Bradford LifeStyles are, and hope you also will share their story with the world on your social media platforms and help them build their dreams.

They are off to a great start as right out of the gate they are networking with other businesses and offering great deals for their visitors and customers.  e.g. Here’s another excerpt from the Kelsey Schmitt blog.
