iJango Scam = Failed AGLOCO Toolbar?


iJango appears to be some sort of toolbar that will allow you to monetize the web, right?

Sorry to report that it's been tried before, twice.

Read this TechCrunch article from 2007.  it will shed a lot of light on iJango:

If it was a bad idea the first time around, it’s probably a bad idea the second time around too. Mike was harsh on AGLOCO, a variation of the failed AllAdvantage pyramid scheme from a few years ago, when he wrote about their launch. He was right to question the business – they’re closing down. The following email was sent to at least some AGLOCO members:

We would like to update you on the status of AGLOCO’s operations. We continue to believe in the AGLOCO concept, but our revenue is currently not sufficient to give Members a meaningful distribution. And though there are increases in membership, the resulting revenue is not enough to support operating costs. As a development team we are unable to continue to use our savings to fund the operations. If any Member would like to pursue continuing the operations of AGLOCO, you may contact us at agloco1@live.com .

We would like to thank every Member for supporting our effort to bring a piece of the Internet directly to the user. We hope that we can find a way to keep the operations going.

AGLOCO is the reincarnation of AllAdvantage (complete with some of the same founders), a Web 1.0 company that paid users for viewing advertising through a toolbar. The founders, who blamed the stock crash in 2000 for the AllAdvantage faiure, claimed they’d get it right this time around. In particular, the ability to highly target advertising would allow them to generate enough revenue for a sustainable business.

Apparently they were wrong. AGLOCO joins the TechCrunch Deadpool.

  1. I know that Agloco was free. Wasn't AllAdvantage also free? How can this author say that these programs that cost the users no money are "pyramid schemes"? I'm so sick of that term. There was no "scam" here. They just could not get enough advertisers on board.

  2. Everthing written on the web is true isn't it? Does this author have a personal dislike of the network marketing profession. Or a possible financial interest in a competing company. Google just launched its new Chrome OS. Is that a scam. People should evaluate all the options. Investigate the companies and make their own decisions. Thanks for the info though.

  3. Funny.See you Guys at the Top. When Your enjoying the uses of Ijango refer back to this page that is full of nothing but advertisments of MLM. Thanx

  4. iJango is not a toolbar. It is more like yahoo or msn that encompasses essentialy everything a surfer may want. Plus it has functionality like i-google that will knock your socks off. You can twitter and facebook and youtube all from your home page so you don't have to navigate around the net, plus much more. It's also free to use. To earn commissions from your friends and family using the portal, you do have to signup as a distributor. But it's a way to earn your portion of the $300 Billion in web advertising.

  5. Richard Johnson: why not just use iGoogle and skip the middleman?

    My mother-in-law was approached about signing up for this and asked my opinion. I did some research on this guy Cameron Barrett Sharpe — he's the jerk in the video on the iJango site. I love how he says absolutely nothing of content for six minutes straight.

    Anyway, his history seems to be nothing but a stream of BBB complaints, employee complaints, bankruptcy court, and even an arrest of his business partner for marijuana possession.

    Seems like a rotten group of people at the top.


  6. Scamz,

    I guess all business start off free. No capital, just look at GM that was the scam of all scams and we will all pay for it and your childrens children. So if you are going to inform me about Ijango come prepared. Don't you think that Steve Smith, all the partnered companies that are involved might want to be in on what you claim to know. It is apparent that you don't know much. Cameron, is not in financial control and or decision making in this company. It was an idea, he had. But I'll grant his past is not greatest either. How many of us have done things we are not proud of. If Smith can forgive him since he took for a couple million. I think the rest of us can move on. Oh if you got all the facts come with it and by the way use your name.

  7. I had signed up for this and quickly backed out. They ran my credit card under "Ultimate Choice Travel" – which is one of Cameron's prior companys/scams. Mastercard/Visa has not backed them, so why should I? Their launch is supposed to be Aug 1 – i'd bet that same $150 that it gets pushed back, and back, and back, that is, if they don't take all the money they've earned already and bounce. Good luck!!!
