Steve Bedrosian, Website Hoaxer
I've listed the hoax website buydehydratedwater.com
on this site before. But here are a few other sites to consider:
- Vend-a-Temp: a new solution to HR management. "With the placement of a Vend-A-Temp machine in your establishment, you will have a constant supply of competent, ready-to-work temporary employees whenever and where ever you need them."
- A New Identity: Just tell this company who you would like to become in the future, and they'll help you create a whole new identity for yourself.
- Carbon Free Diamonds: A diamond manufacturer dedicated to the production of only "100% pure, carbon-free diamonds."
- Grow Your Own Florist: Stop getting gouged by florists. Grow your own florist instead.
- University of Nigeria: "creators of the advanced fee methodology and related business technologies."
The reason I've listed these all together is that according to their registration info they're all created by the same guy: Steve Bedrosian, a resident of Alhambra, CA. Their production value is pretty high, so Steve must have spent a good amount of time on them. But I'm really not sure what Steve's motive is. Why this entire little alternative web universe? Is it all just a joke? Is he advertising his web design skills? He created buydehydratedwater.com back in 2000, but his other websites appear to be of much more recent vintage (March, 2004). I've emailed Steve, so hopefully he'll let me know what the story is behind these sites.
