Hi. Today, I'm reporting Empower Network. When you go to their site, they claim to sell a "value totalling over $1,000". $25 For a blog service that's supposed to make you money like crazy. Plus they say you'll join their affiliate program (re selling their crap) and earn 100% commission. The blog is just part of the pitch.

The only real way to make money with them is the program. Which costs $300 a month. And you earn much less than 100% commission, and only on every other sale. The blog is just so they have a product. If you just want a blog, use Blogger.

They know that, and they would be bankrupt if what they cared about was the blog. So my hands were tied and I just did the affiliate program.

Well, it went on fine. But since I tried to have a more personal and social connection to customers, many complained right to my email that I had promised them work at home success by purchasing the blog, and then saw what it really costs.

I immediately became outraged at Empower and their ethics, and refunded all my customers their 25 dollars.

These guys not only suck you dry, they make you decieve. How many people would buy their crap if they told them their real intent? If you want to make money with Empower, you better be a good liar.

If you really want to file a complaint to keep this from happening to other people, you need to file with the Attorney General.

Ugly?

AUTHOR: leb32 - (United States of America)

I used the same words you used. So, if my words are ugly you used them first. And what does my mother have to do with this? And it has gotten me far already. The training is worth every penny even without making any money. I will come back and report my progress here. I have taken a break from promoting Empower Network to build my list so that I can build an army of brainwashed successful people!!

OKAY BRAINWASH!!!!!!

AUTHOR: Peace137 - (United States of America)

If you choose to be "BRAINWASH" so be it.  Some of us are smart enough to see "MESS" ahide of time before wasting & keep investing money.  So all your name calling reflects who you really are  and your "UGLY" mother lol.   Stay brainwash and see how far that gets you.

Back At Ya!

AUTHOR: leb32 - (United States of America)

The pass up system is disclosed in the video that you watch before setting up your merchant account. Everyone who want to make money with Empower Network has to be an Affiliate before they can make money with the system.
So, if you signed up to make money and you go to setup your merchant account then you were told about the pass up system. If at that point you decide that you do not want to participate in that system, then you dont have to. But you
cant say no one told you. Everyone who is joins Empower Network is encouraged to watch and pay attention to ALL the training videos. Plus, the compensation plan is clearly laid out in the Boot Camp Training series which everyone has access
to.

And upselling is used throughout the sales industry. Everyone upsells! Last year I bought my son a bicycle and they sold me a 2-yr protection plan for it. I used to sell cars and people get upsold bigtime when they buy a car! And almost every program online uses upsells. So, there is nothing shady about upselling. Everyone does it.

And nowhere in any of the videos are you told that you have to go join other sites.  Since I have been in Empower Network I have not received one e-mail to join anything else.

So, none of you claims are true. But what is disgraceful and misleading is claiming that someone mislead you or did not disclose something to you when you had access to all the same information everybody else has access to. Bad mouthing a company because you did not watch or pay attention to the training videos that everyone is encouraged to watch is disgraceful. Remember the condition you were told before you opted in? NO WUSSIES ALLOWED!! Whats a wussie? They introductory says, (I know, I paid attention) a wussie is someone who blames everyone else for their failure, someone who sits back and expects everyone else to do everything for them, a whiner, a griper, a complainer.

Empower Network was designed to empower people to take control of their own financial destiny! And a take control person is going to fully educate themselves with the information they need to change their destiny and then take action based on that information! And the system works! It is working for 1,000s of people who are ready to do something different to finally get
ahead and have true freedom! This program is not for everybody but those that take action and follow directions get results! And youre right, we are brainwashed to succeed! No other business has ever truly given the power to the people like this business does! The system is very effective in separating the whiners from the winners, and since you have decided to take yourself out, then we know which group you are in. And that is totally fine. If you dont like Empower Network, get out! No one is forcing you to stay. But dont lie and mislead people because you didnt apply yourself to follow the instructions.  leb32@usa.com

Huh!!!!! Right Back at Ya!!!

AUTHOR: Peace137 - (United States of America)

You are correct about the $300.00 or more once they finished up selling you. I had no ideal about the 2nd 4th 6th etc levels until now.  Not once did i read that  in my disclosures (i guess the writing must  be mighty small lol)  This company is very misleading & very disgraceful to the public.  I just join 2 days ago and I will be requesting my money back.  No one told me that i had to pass my money up at any time.  Nor of those videos i watch stated that.  (What a Joke).  What's so sad about it once you join the site they are constantly up selling you (My Red Flag when up Then) sending you other videos to join other sites just to make more money off of you,  that is not fair to new people that's trying to established themselves.  To me that's greed & very misleading they need to be upfront with people, so they know what to expect.  I hope that that this company will be shut down.  If you want to continue to be brainwash then so be it.

AUTHOR: leb32 - (United States of America)

Before you go reporting something as a scam you really should get your facts straight. There is nothing in Empower Network that costs $300 a month. And you are paid 100% commissions (minus merchant fees) except on your 2nd, 4th, and ever 6th sale which are passed up to your sponsor. So, it is NOT every other one as you claimed. It seems like the only one who is lying is you!
