  • Is Social Lead Freak Review a Scam?

1. What Is Social Lead Freak?


Social Lead Freak is a piece of (expensive) adobe air software that claims to help and ease an internet marketer’s search for people, more specifically leads, to sell their specific products or services to.

Social Lead Freak Scam

The social lead freak software works by using keywords that go out and search Facebook and Google Plus, finding people who have mentioned the keyword you used. 

For example, say you were an internet marketer who’s been promoting a certain brand of clothes on your website. Well what Social Lead Freak will supposedly allow you to do, is type in that certain brand of clothing, and search for people who have merely mentioned this item in Facebook.

(For example, a person mentions “Golf”, as the keyword, and it will download that users ID for you to e-mail, or attempt to gain their information by sending them a link to your website)


2. How Does Social Lead Freak Scam Work?


Social Lead Freak works by obtaining the user ID’s of all the people it scans through Facebook pages, groups, and profiles.

This invasion and inhumane method of attaining “leads,” does not only seem wrong, but nearly worthless to the internet marketing user.

Why Social Lead Freak Won’t Help You Attain Proper Leads?

There is no reason to think just because a certain person types in a related buyer’s keyword that by simply e-mailing that person on Facebook, or following him or her on Google +, will give that person any reason to purchase whatever it is your selling.

It is in my unbiased opinion that in order to be a highly-effective internet marketer, you must have the ability to connect with your audiences or target on a more communicative level.

By simply attaining and extracting a list of Facebook User Id’s who’ve say for example, typed in the keyword “Nike Clothing,” that it’s going to do you any good by chasing after those people, promoting your product through e-mail marketing tactics.

The way Social Lead Freak works is by attaining these user ID’s and converting them into “corresponding Facebook e-mails” using the address

Social Lead Freak additionally claims that not all user ID’s will have any associated corresponding Facebook address, which in that case causes Social Lead Freak to eliminate the user ID since it has now become essentially useless to the user.

3. Social Lead Freak Scam Overview

Nonetheless, Social Lead Freak is no different than a black-hat marketing e-mail scraper technique. 

By utilizing this technique, the internet marketer is essentially going against all can-spam law by illegally attaining and contacting e-mails he or she were never given permission to in the first place!

    Ok, since SIF is a scam, can anybody recommend something that DOES work please?

    Thank you!

  2. Abraham. O

    I find your review very helful. I was happy I read your review about this scam. I’m a newbie in online affiliate marketing, what are the best ways of making a huge lead and creating a niche for your products. For example i promote a course that help struggling business owners (whether they’re just starting up or have been in business for years) to hire, plan, strategise and make a huge return in their business . Thank you

      Good luck with the course Abraham. The way I see it, there are a couple techniques you can use to build a list. The first is start a website or blog, where you can create content that you can either rank with SEO or promote on social media.

      You’d have to set up a capture e-mail and list to begin gathering e-mails and sending out messages. One other possible way is heading straight to Facebook or LinkedIn and networking with other marketers who could be interested in your service. Preferably, I like the first option better :)

    Thank you for giving me a different perspective on this software, I guess i didn’t really think about how overly broad and spam-ie it is.
    I’m really glad I found your review and i’ll be back, keep up the good work!

    1. Peter G. Post author

      No problem Greg. Glad you found this review. If there is one thing I learned, it’s that automation and softwares never tend to work in the online marketing world. But I am glad to have provided you with a different angle and perception of how Social Lead Freak really works.

  4. Paul

    I bought this software and can agree it does not work, support requests are ignored and refund requests are ignored. Unfortunately i paid with fund in my paypal account so can’t get a refund through paypal as digital products are exempt when you pay with funds. Will never do that again thats for sure.

    1. Peter G. Post author

      That’s unfortunate Paul and I’m really sorry to hear that. At least you know now though that all these kinds of software are totally bogus. The best way of going about it, whether you’re trying to get more traffic through social media or blogging is to just do it consistently. Of course it’s not going to happen overnight, but it will always grow. Whether you focus on creating keyword rich content or getting comments, these will only help.

    I completely agree with Ryan! I also purchased the software and it does not work as advertised. The owner also does not abide by his 30 day money back guaranteed. The owner (Ali G) also disabled my software key (because I filed a paypal dispute) and now Im out $97 without ANY software.


    1. Peter G. Post author

      Not cool. This just shows, softwares like these rarely ever work like they say. Great job however, filing a PayPal dispute. I just learned actually that PayPal will take these types of complaints seriously, and in many cases will refund you the money. Especially with schemes like Social Lead Freak. My recommendation is to keep up with the dispute and see what’s going on there. Good luck John.

  6. Ryan Hidajat

    I bought their software couple months ago, for 1-2 months its working fine, but after facebook update, they don’t work properly anymore, I try to get my refund because their software is not working, but still… like other people said, you won’t get your money back.

    and becarefull with similar software that said Grabs UID, it wont be working properly once facebook makes updates.

    1. Peter G. Post author

      That is good to know Ryan and very helpful for information for a lot of people out there. Thank you for sharing your personal experience and sorry to hear about the poor customer service you had with these people behind Social Lead Freak.

  7. David T

    Ali G & co are happy to take your money but they DON’T refund!
    DON’T buy from them.
    I have asked 10 times for a refund, they fluffed around the first request and then they have ignored all the rest.
    They hide behind their ‘help desk’ system which is just a way for them to filter emails out.
    I have complained to PayPal but I doubt anything will be done.
    I am surprised PayPal are happy to have businesses that offer scammy products/services like this.

    1. Peter G. Post author

      Hi David,

      Thank you so much for offering your input and experience with this.. I’ve actually been asked this a number of times, so this better helps us understand Social Lead Freaks customer support.

      Too many online products don’t offer the proper support nowadays, especially online scams. A product without support, is honestly, nothing but a worthless product!

      How can you even begin to trust these guys..? And the fact they won’t even honor your refund, is outright ridiculous. You can really tell a lot by the support a company offers, and in this case, it does not make Social Lead Freak look any better than it already does.

      Thank you,

    I have the product but did not purchase it. PHew, thank God for that. Now… What would be your way of getting leads to affiliate offer.
    I’m already aware of setting up campaigns and such I am just curious of your ways of getting leads that actually convert for free. Is your recommendation downloadable for me to look into?

    1. Peter G. Post author

      Hi Dame,

      Glad to see the review helped you from making a non-worthwhile purchase decision. Seeing you have some experience in setting up marketing campaigns, my online recommendation is not something you download. It’s an all-in-one affiliate marketing platform, allowing you to create a website on any niche (passion, interest, or topic) you’d like, allowing you to drive traffic to your website by creation of content, media and such. You’ll also be learning how to connect your website with the right social media platforms and audience, and getting your own website ranked on the top of Google, allowing your website to (fingers-crossed!) earn you an income for a long-time to come.

      As a free starter member you get two free websites and the first training course module.

      If you happen to like it you can go Premium for $19, giving you Unlimited Hosting, one-on-one mentorship and help, along with a whole community to help you, live chat and support, and most-importantly, a step-by-step task based training.

      Hope this answers your question :)

    Awesome post!

    You saved me a lot of money and time looking into this program.
    I have everything to thank you for.

    Your post and website overall shows nothing but true honesty.
    Rather than utilizing this information to your monetary advantage,
    you decide to write an extremely honest review.

    I can’t thank you enough for it. This is the only legitimate review
    I could find on Social Lead Freak.

    Very happy to have come across this.


    p.s. I plan on looking more into joining your Wealthy Affiliate program because of your honesty.
