Cash Flow Direct Website Scam, Home Base Business Scam, Guarantees that you never receive Ripoff Phoenix Arizona
*UPDATE Employee: Wrong Company
I received a phone call from them w/ this offer that would last for 10 months. They told me I would make a % off of every sale that was made and they also made a %, so if I make money then they make money. That is why they want me to succeed.
They offer personal one-on-one coaching that was not limited. They also offered a guarantee. If I didn't make back the money I put in for the websites, all I had to do is prove that I advertised once a month, for the 10 months, I would receive a refund.
A couple of weeks after signing up for the websites, I received a call from Ralph and he said he was the head coach and he would be MY personal coach. We talked about advertising and he told me they offer guaranteed traffic. There were different packages to choose from and I was very hesitant. He told me of the 80 year old woman that doesn't even have a computer and she calls him daily just to check on her websites. Tactics that make you think you can trust them!
Ralph told me they guarantee if I didn't make back the money I spent on advertising, in the 10 months, they would give me a year of free advertising. He stated they have never had to do this.
I told him that I was concerned, if that 1st month I didn't make any money, I would still have to make a payment on my credit card and we were already stretched thin. He told me that as my coach we would work together on the money and teach me how to consolidate my bills w/ the money I make off of the websites.
He said he did have to be careful w/ his words because of the FTC, but he would guarantee I would make a return on my investment within 30 to 45 days.
I paid $3900.00 for advertising and he told me that people that go this agressive in advertising are easily making $2000 to $3000 a month and since I was doing this at Thanksgiving, I would see very nice checks from Amazon.
He was also going to give me a free domain name and for me to call the next week and give them the new name and we would then set up a time for my weekly coaching.
I call the next week and talk w/ someone about my domain name and she said I need to send it through e-mail. I sent it through e-mail and to this day it has not been changed.
A few days later, I called to speak to Ralph. The 1st person I spoke w/ didn't know him. The 2nd person said he sounded familiar. The 3rd person asked why I would want to speak to Ralph because all he would do is try to get even more money from me, since his degree is in marketing.
I told her someone was suppose to call me to go over the websites and walk me through them and Ralph was my personal coach. She said he couldn't help anymore than the customer service reps could, so I can just talk w/ them. She set up a time to call me back so we could go over the sites. She never called back.
I never received the free domain name! I asked them 3 times to fix a problem w/ one of the sites and it was never corrected! I have not received my one-on-one free coaching w/ my personal coach, Ralph! I have not made a return on my investment in the first 30 to 45 days!! The percentage they told me was more than what I actually would be getting if I made a sell. I would get 4% and they would get 5% and I never would have agreed to that!! I asked for the guarantee in writing, so I would have it for my records and have not ever received a response to that.
I have not made a single dollar, much less 2 to 3 thousand a month. This company is unprofessional and deceave in many ways. They do not follow through w/ what they claim and I warn everyone to stay away from this company!!!
