Anonymous: Anonyupload May Be A Scam

By: Zach Walton - January 24, 2012

You may remember we reported yesterday the launch of Anonyupload, the Anonymous alternative to MegaUpload. The site appears to be a scam.

In a post today on their twitter, Anonymous has said that Anonyupload has no affiliation with the site and they flagged it as a scam.

FYI – We have NO affiliation with this site, and by the looks of it, this is a SCAM – 6 hours ago via TweetDeck · powered by @socialditto

For those unaware, the site promised free file sharing among users and looked official. Only problem is that it’s hard to tell what’s official with Anonymous. They were asking for donations via PayPal to help buy server space and support the Web site proper.

Once again, it seems that people are using the Anonymous name to either make a quick buck or force innocent users to do their dirty work. Of course, we don’t know if Anonyupload is legit or not, but I wouldn’t take any chances until the site supposedly launches on January 28.

@YourAnonNews and @AnonyOps are generally good indicators of what is currently going on in the world of Anonymous. You would be wise to follow them for any official updates on this and other matters during their current operations.

    …aside it’s FAKEness…anonyupload sucks!! lol it doesn’t even have an upload area 😛 …besides, there is noway that it’s owned by Anonymous….if anonymous were to start a file hosting website with their enourmous resources, it’d be waaaaayyyyy better than that cheap/cheezy website.

    personally, I used to have all my files on megaupload, and omg I can’t believe what I have all my files on:

    …decent sized allowance, and it gives my users direct-links…which they love….so far, it’s been better than sonic, MU and HF COMBINED!!!

    P.S. GO ANONYMOUS!!!!!
