Do Not Use or Follow TEXT ADS From Them!

Do Not Use or Follow TEXT ADS From Them!  – Hackers!  Publisher’s of Adware!  You should not Join their site, buy their advertising  or click on their text ads.

When you purchase advertising and put your ads on a site or blog you are doing business with them.  When you put those ads on a web site or in a blog with out the permission of the publisher you are stealing from them.  Plan and simple.  That is what did on today. had their text advertisements on the PortalTaxi network without  our permission.  system works by an advertiser placing an ad with Text Enhance .com and then TextEnhance publishs that ads with one of the Text Enhance publishers.  The problem is PortalTaxi is not one of the publishers.  So how did their ads get on  News Network?  It is likely one of our members, a person commenting on a post or themselves placed a code on our site.  It could have been a code added to a post or a comment that would ad the advertising.

We normally would not accuse a platform developer of a shady act like this, that would normally be done by someone using their system.  Most ad platforms like this are legit and would help you out if you have an issue with their system.  We understand that you get bad users on every platform.  We get them on Portal Taxi.  That is why we contact directly via email there at  The thing is never responded back to us directly.  We sent them like 10 emails and only go auto generated email massages back.  That is an obvious sign of someone you do not want to do business with on the internet.  At that point we started to get worried because their automated emails mention what to do to remove the adware and make statements like you have not been hacked.  Obviously this is something they always do when they send out an email like that.  We then did a google search and found a lot of negitive comments all over the web about there hacking and adware practices.  We will share links to some of what we found at the end of this post.

If you’re having this issue on your computer or web site I suggest you go the advertiser and complain.. Charge them for the space like we plan to do.  We tried contacting the advertising platform and that was useless.

We do not know who is and we have never heard of them or done business with them.  We urge that if you are doing business with to Please Stop!  Because if you’re advertisments are showing up on our site without our permission then you also are stealing ad space from us.  You do not have permission to have your ads here.  I am sure your ads are also showing up on other sites like this. / will invoice advertisers we find on our platform that are generated from platform.  We will contact the advertiser directly and bill them for the ad space.  They will be billed a flat advertising rate of $250 for each ad that was place on our site with out’s  permission.  If done want to pay our fee for having your ad here then I suggest you go after for our cost.
