Warning - www.numberonemusic.com is a big scam !

Some independent musicians may know this music site www.numberonemusic.com
that sells promotion packs to get exposure.
I have tried this site for two of my projects. For Digital Beat and Finnlux Tuna.

I sent a threatening comment for numberonemusic.com last week in a style "Your site is a scam". Short time after that my page http://www.numberonemusic.com/digitalbeat was deleted. Can you see the problem? No artist page no evidence.
Also other things that I noticed:
- The forum is removed from the site.
- If you don´t pay artist page your plays stays zero

At the time I paid for example for Finnlux Tuna there was many plays on the artist page. I cannot be fooled because I have seen several mp3 sites since mp3.com days and there are always even some plays on artist stats. It´s very rare that artist has got zero daily plays on long period of time.
I have a strong doubt that they drive some bots or other traffic on artist page when the payment is on the file and then if you don´t pay then no daily plays on artist stats. You can see the difference?

How it works?
There is a mailing list signup option on artist page where fans can signup and get
e-mail from artist. For example about new music and album releases.

I got several hundreds of mailing list signups. There´s about 700 e-mail addresses on a single artist mailing list. Sounds good? Are you still convinced that these are real fans? When I paid for artist account I sent e-mails for these "fans" and got some very brief answers that were like "Keep doing your thang". "Cool Stuff"
But album sales still almost zero. Wonder why?

This is a real e-mail sent from my Finnlux Tuna e-mail account with header with sending date and time.

Hi

Can you reply "yes keep me in mailing list" to
ensure you are a human not a bot.
I am also very suspicious about numberonemusic.com
because my album sales are very low
even with hundreds of fans and positive
feedback.


Thanks

Finnlux Tuna

My artist page is here with zero daily plays:

http://www.numberonemusic.com/finnluxtuna/


After I have sent several hundreds of e-mails I got this:



Still today after 5 days of sending I have not single reply for my e-mail I sent on 3rd of february. This is fishy and very weird.

I have to try to send a second e-mailing and see the result. Still if I don´t get any replies then this is really a scam.

My Finnlux Tuna artist page was deleted.

I was refunded for Digital Beat page deletion after I told them and was threatening with court and lawsuit.
