I was first contacted on 02-23-07 by adnet marketing solutions sales representative Moses Massaro. He advised me of the ability to use Adnet to make money at home through their affiliate services. I was eager to try out this program that was outlined to me as an affiliate program with Ebay, and Amazon.com. It was said that if Adnet furnished the websites and I provided the advertising that I could make enough residual income to more than pay for my enrollment into the program.
I bought into the program and paid $299.00 for the affiliate websites and another $75 for voice enhancements for my sites. Here was the guarantee:
We guarantee that as long as you advertise your business, if you have not at least made the money you invested for your website start up, you have 30 days from your 6th month to call our office for a refund of the difference of your profits and your website start up cost.
This leads me into the 2nd part and more serious of my complaint. The website was not functional until I contacted the office on 03-22-07. While I was waiting on the web site to become active I was contacted by another sales representative, Charlie Rucci, who told me that they also had a sales campaign that I could buy into and they would handle all aspects of my advertising for the affiliate sites that I had already purchased from them.
After coming to an agreement on the price of $3500.00 I was guaranteed 30,000 hits (Consumer contacts that were already looking to buy products from Ebay and Amazon.com). Charlie Rucci specifically stated that this advertising campaign would deliver at least 30,000 visitors/consumers to my sites that were already in the market for the products for which I had bought the web sites for, and I would in return earn a percentage of the amount that these consumers spent.
The problem that I see now after being able to locate information on this elaborate deception is that the advertising campaign is non existent. The 30,000 hits to my site are or will be computer generated or sent to a pay-per-click service and will never produce a sell for which I would have received a percentage from my affiliate programs. The guarantee under the purchase is as follows:
Customer must earn back a minimum of their advertising investment within 12 months or Adnet Marketing Solutions LLC will repeat the advertising campaign for the next 12 months at no additional charge.
This should be null and void if the advertising campaign is not an actual active component. If all it is doing is sending computer hits to my purchased sites and not generating any revenue, then how is the guarantor really going to make any type of profit?
Furthermore, how is the guarantor going to make profit from the same computer generated hits from a 2nd years worth of advertising. I feel that I have been scammed out of a total of $3874.00 from Adnet Marketing Solutions LLC.
This company is running the same type of scheme that The Results Group has been accused. I also think that this company may be associated with several companies running the same scam from Phoenix Arizona. These companies are Marketing Solutions LLC, TRG (The results group) along with capbizgroup.com.
Here are a few sites that tell exactly whats going on with these types of companies:
