I have been  scammed for $8,500 by Apply Knowledge Institute closely associated with eVertex Solutions (its innocent cover) and 6-Figure Consulting (its billing service that takes the bad rap for all of them).  I was lucky to get out as soon as I did.

This organization also coordinates its business with Google Business Kit, WholesaleMatch.com, and The Tax Club.  All of these are scams that dont deliver anything that they promise.

Let me know if anyone wants to take legal action on these organizations.


ApplyKI has a great rating with the Better Business Bureau because its so new and 6-Figure Consulting does all of the dirty work for them. These businessmen probably create a new corporation every year to preserve their Better Business Bureau rating.

Meanwhile the owner, Ken Sonnenberg, maintains the harmless, yet worthless eVertex Solutions, which sells elementary Excel business spreadsheets. Thus, they can claim that theyve been in business since 2001. But ApplyKI just formed in March 2009.

6-Figure Consulting has probably taken the fall for them everytime.  This organization makes their contracts at the last moment as youre buying in and has a massive back-log of complaints along with a D+ rating with the BBB.

The complaints and reports on them are unfortunately all true.  Their testimonials are fake--I have plenty of proof if you need it.
Just google the name on their main testimonial: Randy C., Beaufort, SC. His name's been used for these testimonials before.
Check out other reports and the testimonials that this 6-Figure Consulting guy tried to claim--they're all fake: http://www.ripoffreport.com/JOSH-LINDSAY-SIX-FIGURE-CONSULTING-SIX-F/Tutoring/JOSH-LINDSAY-SIX-FIGURE-CONS-223AY.htm

Of course, they're tricky and hard to catch. They never tell you the name 6-Figure Consulting. They just send you to their website at the last second for the billing and contract procedure, so you can't look them up beforehand. By then, they've won you over.

#1 Consumer Comment

Another dodgy part of eVertex

AUTHOR: VH - (United Kingdom)

Over in the UK our little company just got an email from evertex telling us that we weren't getting the right google page positions for our website, weren't scoring AT ALL with Google they said. What a load of rip off nonsense - we've did revamp of website 3 months ago, we're 1/2/3 position on google first page depending on geographic area, have full optimisation stats etc etc . Looked like a scam fraud email to me and was from the eVertex group. I guess anything allied to it will be a rip off too.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Refunds being issued

AUTHOR: Josh22 - (U.S.A.)

I worked at Six Figure for almost 2 years. I can honestly say it was a great company to work for and they helped over 2000 students build a home base business. I personally keep in contact with every one of my students. I have 15 right now making more than $5000 a month with their business? As far as Randy Beaufort he is real, in fact i have had my students call him for a live testimonial.
Unfortunately due to the economy Six Figure is out of business, They sold their assets, and refunded over $500,000 to clients enrolled. The key was to communicate directly with Six Figure for the refund, they would work out a fair compromise anywhere from 50%-100% refund in most cases. I do know that they had little tolerance for slander online as it can never be removed, therefore the damage is done. This damage costs them thousands in PR. I know that if you would have contacted them directly before your slander you would have received your refund.
As far as Apply,they create success stories daily, i know this because some of them are mine. I like knowing that i helped someone make $1200 so they can now afford their wife's medication, or $2200 to start saving for their only sons college education. out of 2000 + clients yes 5-10 will not be happy, but complaining online is futile. Express your concern to the company, settle on a refund and move forward. Both parties win?

I wish you the best of luck ......
