Thanks for sharing this information on textlinkbrokerage.com
I am among those who have considered this company, and I had no idea of these unethical practices and the fact that the product may not even be delivered.
I also checked out text-link-ads.com and one thing that immediately stood out to me was the BBBOnLine Reliability seal. However, when I clicked it, it was for a company named "Positioned 1" - does anyone know if this is another site from the owners of text-link-ads.com? (Either way, as an unknowing consumer, I certainly get sceptical when the name on the BBB report does not match the name of the site I clicked through from. I'm guessing there is a natural explanation to this, but I can imagine how some potential customers might shy away once they realize this...)
