Help report the scam "flight simulator plus"

Postby Domarius » Mon Feb 06, 2012 11:06 pm

Sorry if there is a more appropriate forum, but I signed up specifically to try and get people to mass-report the guys selling FlightGear as their own product re-branded.

I thought they'd been stopped but I just today saw another one of their ads on Facebook.

You can quickly mass-report a lot of their videos by going to vimeo.com and searching for "flight simulator" - their videos are recognisable as a random man's face staring into the camera, or a FlightGear gameplay video (with proflightsimulator.org branded on it, or somesuch). Report them as "Money making" or "Gameplay" as appropriate. Helpfully, once you find one, you can find a lot of the others in the "related videos" panel. The report link is down the bottom left, but after I'd logged in, I had to go to "Tools" up the top menu to report videos.

Also here are a bunch of Facebook groups you can report as a scam, which I found just by searching "flight simulator plus" in Facebook.

You can do the same on YouTube. Actually I just Googled "flight simulator plus video" and found lots of their videos that way.

On YouTube, click the flag icon below the video, then give "scam" as the reason.
