The Warrior Forum’s resident article marketing/article syndication guru, Alexa Smith, is a total fraud.
If you are prepared to place your trust in someone who is a complete fake because you believe that person is convincing in their arguments…
...if you are prepared to overlook stolen photos and fake identities…
...if you are happy to build your business based on the advice of someone who operates, and has operated for many years, a string of fake sock puppet accounts on various mlm and internet marketing forums…
...if you are happy to rely on someone who has posed on many chat room boards as a medical doctor…
...if you are satisfied to overlook breaches of copyright and image rights…
...then click away now-this page will be of no interest to you.
However if you are on the fence about trying to make a business online and are not quite sure who to believe, and if you find what the Alexa Smith character has to say on the Warrior Forum credible...
...and you are considering pouring your heart and soul into the advice he/she/it dispenses with monotonous and chilling regularity...
...this page may be of interest in helping you make up your mind about the best way to proceed.
Alexa Smith’s Multiple Identities
Before Alexa Smith set up shop on the Warrior Forum she had a colourful past.
Set out below you will see that she/he/it had many pen names/identities.
What you will find below is extracts from a number of “how to make money” forums-places like www.mlm.com and www.scam.com. You will find that many different members of these forums, at different times and completely independently, discovered that Yuliya, Jana, Alexaherself, and a new one Marko1 were the same person.
You will discover that all of these accounts were being operated from one single ip address.
And you will find that Jana and Marko1, and later Timothy Nagley, were claiming to be doctors, specifically neurophysiologists. Yes, all of them were making this claim at one time or another.
When you have read carefully through the extracts from the archives from these forums you will really only be able to conclude that the statistical probability of there being more than one person behind the accounts of Jana, Yuliya Miranova, alexaherself, and Erneston is so small as to be statistically insigficant.
In addition if you read closely the writing style of Marko1, Yuliya Miranova, alexaherself, Alexa Smith, and Jana it is clear that the same person is behind all of these accounts.
And when you see that the administrators of the failed network marketing forum, http://www.thenetworkmarketingforum.com included Yuliya, Jana, and Tim with alexa as a “member” trying to drum up interest you will see what a tangled web of lies was woven.
In addition you will see that alexaherself had a signature link on her MLM.com account which led to this address …you will also see that Jana raised quite a few eyebrows with her avatars which subsequently were discovered to be stolen from Eastern European dating sites, a la Alexa Smith.
And you will also discover that Jana had a “thing” for shoes and images of sexy shoes.
The probability of all of these threads and links and coincidences can lead you to only one rational conclusion within the bounds of any definition of certainty:Alexa Smith was Yuliya Miranova and Jana Serg and Tim Nagley and Erneston and Marko1.
Lets take a look at the evidence:
In this post RhondaD says:
"Ok, I just saw this exact post on another board and being quoted as being from doctor who's a medical school professor. So are you a doctor Marko, or was that a quote from somewhere else because I don't recall seeing a post stating you were a doctor. I do believe that Jana perhaps mentioned credentials like this, so are there 2 doctors here? Did you get this info elsewhere? Or do you and Jana share the same body? lol
Not trying to start anything. Just curious."
Marko1, another Alexa Smith/Jana/Erneston sock puppet account, replies:
"Yes, I am. I teach at a medical school in London which is affiliated to London University and to a teaching hospital which is part of our National Health Service.
I do believe that Jana perhaps mentioned credentials like this
Jana is mostly a neurologist."
So Marko1 is a doctor teaching at a medical school in London, Jana is a neurologist, Timothy Nagley is a neurologist...
Then who shows up but Jana to clear matters up about the double posting of the same post on two different forums:
"I can answer that, Marko, because the culprit just called me to ask me to explain/apologise to you, she doesn't have your email address. It was my friend Yuliya, you know her father, I think?
Apparently she saw a discussion very similar to this one in a "Work At Home Mums" forum (!) and was concerned that people there might also wrongly imagine that the fact that the vitamins were synthetic was being blamed as the cause of the problem, and she was sensible enough to want to do something about that. Having no way of contacting you, she quoted there from your post (excerpts only, not the whole post!) and attributed it simply as "something a doctor had said in another forum".
The mystery is resolved. No harm done, I think? [:)]"
So now Jana owns up to Marko1 aka Jana that Yuliya aka Jana copied the same post and posted it on WAHM.com
What happened here is pretty obvious: somebody noticed that Yuliya aka Jana aka Marko1 was spamming the WAHM.com site with the same drivel.
In this thread another member of MLM.com, Davidlee38 also notices the synchronicity of posting between Yuliya, Jana, and Marko1 and even goes so far as to describe Marko1 as Jana's mentor!
In this thread Marko1 describes Jana as
"David, Jana is a highly respected specialist physician on the staff of a teaching hospital in London and has lectured at postgraduate medical courses in many other countries too. I think you owe her something of an apology, don't you?"
In this thread Gery_D notes:
"Yeah Jana had some great avatars. Along that same line we had her counterpart, Yulia, and then there was Jamie22 who got heavy into internet marketing SEO and the like that also transferred to Jana's new sandbox. That forum is totally gone after being in disrepair for quite some time."
Jamie22 referred to above is Jamie Holt...more about him anon as he pops up on the Warrior Forum as jayextreme and is cited by Alexa Smith as a good friend/mentor/advisor.
Interestingly if you do a search now for "jayxtreme" on the Warrior Forum you will find that the 1st 4 results containing his name are results in which "Alexa Smith" extol his virtues and recommend him as a great mentor/guru.
This same jayxtreme has disappeared and his affiliate product, AffiliateExtreme, has gone the same way.
Strange for such a successful internet marketer...
Jayxtreme was also heavily involved in "article marketing" but it's interesting that his roots go back to MLM.com and running a sock puppet/multiple identity racket with Jana/Alexa/Yuliya.
In this thread we learn that Jamie, Jana, Yuliya, Erneston et al were rumbled and banned from MLM.com
"I wouldn't say it's typical however there are a few here on MLM.com who have always attempted to be "know it alls". (Some of them are now banned...aka Jana/Yulia/Erneston/Corey55 and Jamie and a few others I'm sure.)"
In fact, it is interesting to note that these small time scammers posing unlawfully as medical doctors have been banned from MLM.com, WAHM.com and SCAM.com.
Yet "alexa smith/jana/yuliya" continues to thrive on the Warrior Forum.
In this thread RickyB reports that
"Jana's avatar was the exact same pic posted on a Russian Bride website
I called he on it and posted the links after they were emailed to me by someone from this board who was checking out the Russian bride website and found Jana's Pic
She said they were hers and they were stolen and used on the websites
I was also accused of making the website and posting her pics
The stolen photos from Russian bride sites were of course given a new lease of life by "Alexa" when he first appeared on the Warrior Forum. (you can read more about this on this site; just search for "stolen pics")
And the stolen pics and the claim to be a neurophysiologist and the shoe fetish you will have read about before in relation to ....Alexa!
Take a look at this thread
"That's about the funniest thing I have heard all year
Tony Rush Let the Forum Because of Ricky Brandino
Several members left?
You must mean when your Girl Jana/yuliya left…………….
Because she was exposed for using fake pics and then got into it with Brenda and was banned
That Time Tony?"
And in this thread you will see Kim_Ward reporting of the link between Alexa and Yuliya..
I'm not the only one though, and it was several people
who have put the pieces of the puzzle together, but
I personally have info that nobody else does that makes
me confident in stating all this.
But if I told you what it was, I'd have to kill you... lol
Not with Alexa though, that was just my own guess.
But she gave it away for me when I clicked on her link
to Yulia's blog.
And in this thread Kim_Ward has Alexa/Yuliya rumbled...
"And all of these personalities that use a pic, is of
a sexy young lady with no contact info or company
website that would identify a real person, like your
I think there may be one personality with a pic
that is a guy though.
Kim above describes the same modus operandi as Alexa/Jana/Yuliya used on the Warrior Forum..sexy pics of a young girl, stolen from Eastern European dating sites.
Interestingly one guy, a Warrior Forum member and "successful" MLM guy, Terry Snyder comes to his/her defence saying that the writing styles of Alexa and Jana are different.
No, they are not. They have the same turgid, pedantice, over punctuated, arrogant, patronising, condescending style...
Snyder knows that they are the same and Kim is not buying it. But in all my research the same TSnyder comes up again and again on numerous forums that Yuliya/Jana/Erneston/Alexa Smith have featured on so he is worth taking a look at..
IN this thread there is a couple of useful links to Scam.com where Jana/Yuliya were up to the same tricks again..
..masquerading as doctors and operating multiple accounts and identities.
And with the same result: scam.com banned him/her/it.
In this thread RickyB and Wendy both call out Jana/Alexa/Yuliya and
In this thread, which has been deleted but can be accessed via wayback machine here Jana is asked straight out if she is Yulia on the WAHM.com board.
This is February, 2008.
It is a long time to be operating multiple identities and scamming forum boards.
Interestingly Jana tells us she is 29 and has a fetish for shoes like all Russian girls!
In this thread the questions about Jana/Yuliya come up again and again. Because anyone who can read know that they are the same person..
In the same thread you will see Jamie22, aka jayxtreme aka Jamie Holt, big time affiliate marketer coming in to defend her!
In this thread you will see that Yulia, Jana, and Erneston have the same ip address.
"But, for the record, you really should be aware that Yulia,
Jana and Erneston all have the same IP addy.
Don't shoot the messenger Brian!
And, if you have proof she is a MD, I'd really love to
see that. Don't think it matters now though, that
personality does not seem to be online anymore.
In this thread from Scam.com this time you will see Jana/Yuliya/Alexa posing as Erneston..
"I was just reading your very similar posts over on wahm.com under your other personality called Yuliya, LOL"
Over on WAHM.com you could find Yuliya Miranova telling anyone who would listen that Jana was a neurophysiologist:
01-10-2008, 12:57 PM
Do you sleep that way by choice or because of other constraints? How did you adjust?
Sorry in advance if my replying takes your thread briefly off-topic, but I'll risk it since you asked! I tried this absolutely from choice, no constraints at all, and with some support and plenty of information (I think you know Jana is a neurophysiologist? She has studied and researched this extensively, used to work in a sleep research laboratory and so on). I wanted to try to improve and regularise my sleeping pattern and gain an extra 2 or 3 hours in every 24. I started it off around the time I left the UK last summer on the "try an upheaval at a time when you have another upheaval anyway" theory. I acclimatised very slowly and now entirely successfully. It takes months, not just weeks, to change sleeping patterns. I have never slept less or better, never felt less tired, never lived to such a suitable timetable (I don't do it exactly as described on that website: I now have one four-hour chunk of sleep at almost exactly the same time every night/morning and either 3 or 4 other half-hour sleeps at roughly equal intervals throughout the rest of the "day". It's all about balancing "REM sleep" and "non-REM sleep" (ask Jana!). It would not suit most people, of course, but for me, it has been brilliantly successful."
And on this one you will see that Jana, Jen_Sto, Yulia, Alexaherself, amongst others has been outed before by many different people on many different forums including wahm.com, scam.com, talkgold.com, and mlm.com
Alexa Smith's Boyfriend
Here is where you can check out Alexa Smith's boyfriend
You will see a full album of "Alexa Smith" photos here.
And we know it is Alexa Smith because she tells us on her site and on this site endorsing ebookprofitsunleashed!
But wait. Is this not Anitka88? http://www.sobotnianoc.pl/klubowicze/zdjecia/417538902/
Here is an interesting one...stopfakebitch.com!
Somebody was here before me on Alexa's trail..
Who is Jenna Cecile and why is she stealing Alexa Smith's photos? http://www.myspace.com/558645563/photos/albums/album/612997
and why is Jane from Wrocaw in Poland stealing Alexa's photos?
And now someone on bebo.com, Sweden Girl, is robbing Alexa's pictures.. http://www.bebo.com/c/photos/view?MemberId=1304168340&PhotoNbr=1&PhotoAlbumId=1304171345#photoId=1304185531
Jillian Antoinette on MySpace.com is getting in on the act too.. http://www.myspace.com/jillianmuthafukkinprinces
But maybe, just maybe, Alexa is really Lydmila from the Ukraine http://www.mygorgeouslady.com/user_Topgun58.shtml
The Warrior Forum Scam
If you are trying to set up your own online business you will have probably found the Warrior Forum.
And you may well be tempted to follow the advice of Alexa Smith in relation to article syndication.
Well, good luck with that.
It is your choice to overlook the huge element of trust required to commit to a strategy, a plan of action, as advised by a…scammer and fraud.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
- How credible are Smith’s claims?
- Can you believe her/him/it?
- Do you even know who he/she is?
- Is operating fake identities acceptable?
- Is stealing photos for use as avatars a confidence builder?
- Is there a plausible explanation for masquerading as a doctor on multiple forums under multiple user names?
I am sure you can think of some questions yourself. Hopefully you can.
Because spending a lot of time and money pursuing a strategy that one person espouses under fake names and fake avatars with 19,000+ posts on a spammy internet marketing forum might not be your smartest strategy.
And as I write this here is further evidence of the type of cant and lies that he/she/it peddles:
Google fully understands and endorses syndicated content, respects it (and goes to great lengths to say so!), and doesn't think that at all. Submitting unique (i.e. previously unpublished) content to an article directory is a significantly mistaken approach, and based only on a misperception.
Alexa Smith, March 1st 2013 Warrior Forum.
Now, take a look at the video below:
Alexa Smith Avatars
Compare and contrast some of the stolen photos above with Alexa Smith avatars..
Warrior Forum Gurus
I set out at the beginning of this piece to raise legitimate questions about the credibility and trust of someone who has, cunningly and with great planning and skill, set themselves up as a guru of article marketing/article syndication on the Warrior Forum.
Questions remain however..
The person behind the Alexa Smith persona has been thrown off at least 4 internet marketing/make money online forums: mlm.com, scam.com, wahm.com, and talkgold.com.
Yet he/she has not just been tolerated on the Warrior Forum but has enjoyed a significant degree of protection.
The number of people who have had posts deleted which questioned Smith continues to rise.
The number of people who have been banned from the Warrior Forum for challenging Smith has risen.
With over 19,000 posts and rising since signing up to the Warrior Forum in late 2008 Smith is averaging nearly 20 posts per day.
And these posts are not one liners-they are lengthy, tedious, verbose posts which take a considerable amount of time to compose.
Notably many of these posts link to other posts on the Warrior Forum, and nowhere else.
This raises the question: is Alexa Smith being paid to post full time on the Warrior Forum?
And to spread around internal link juice with many, many posts linking to other Warrior Forum posts?
To continue to create the illusion of success for bright eyed newbies by offering a simple, low cost way of succeeding online: article marketing?
Many people, because of their investment in the promised success of article marketing, have a vested interest in maintaining this illusion.
People like moderators Paul Myers and Ken Strong have built their entire online “success” on the back of “content” creation and promotion.
Myers has his own products which are entirely built around content syndication; Strong supplies private label rights material in various WSOs (check out this post on theantiwarrior.com) (Strong’s cat food PLR is an outstanding example of it’s genre I understand from the many satisfied purchasers!)
In conclusion, if you are thinking about attributing any credibility to Alexa Smith and his/her many “masters” on the Warrior Forum, take a deep breath and consider the evidence.
Working your butt off to start a small online business while pursuing a deluded strategy peddled by sock puppet gurus on the Warrior Forum that is bound to end in failure could be an expensive and frustrating mistake.
All I suggest is you consider this carefully…if you choose to ignore what you find on these pages that is fine.
But take a look at the diametrically opposed advice about article marketing and syndication which Google gives you in the videos above.
And note well that the 2nd video above is titled “Web Spam Violations” and mentions article syndication as the number 1 example of web spam…and the 1st video has Matt Cutts stating quite clearly, despite the lies peddled on the Warrior Forum by Smith and others, that article marketing is “not a good idea”.
It’s your business, your time, your money, your choice.
Who do you choose?
UPDATE MARCH 3rd 2013
Warrior Forum Censorship
Once this post was published here a Warrior Forum member posted a link to it when he, quite understandably, wanted to bring it to the attention of Alexa Smith in this thread.
Of course the Warrior Forum doesn’t like people to discover what is really going on and is determined to maintain the illusion of success from certain members such as Alexa Smith.
And they promptly deleted Michael_le's comment.
And banned him.
Nobody disputes the Warrior Forum’s right to delete posts-as so many Muppets are prepared to accept it is a private forum.
However the question arises: why?
Why continue to protect Alexa Smith and other scammers and frauds with such alacrity and enthusiasm?
Are they too valuable in sucking in newcomers to internet marketing and article marketing in particular?
Are they too useful in maintaining the illusion that within days you can make a fortune…and it will only cost you the Warrior Forum membership and a $7 ebook?
