Upon purchasing the coaching services of Global Mentoring, we spoke with Tyler Roberts. He told us that we could qualify to be candidates for a special program and obtain training and a discount. He started by asking us how much money we had available and how much we could get to start up a business. We told him that we did not have much money or any savings and that we only had the Capital One card credit line. He asked how much was available and I gave him a ballpark figure. He left us on the line and came back with a figure of $6800.00 for the mentorship program which was pretty close to what we had on our card. He told us that within a few months he was confident that we would be bringing in a profit if we followed what his coaching mentors told us to do.
He also went on to tell us all about the success stories of all his clientele in the past had made and that they had productive businesses. He mentioned that if we had not seen a profit, to call him back and he would help us out by having another coach help us and if still no profit that they would reimburse the difference from profits of the amount of money that we lost. He told us that everything we needed to start a business would be in the package that we bought and that it would include 9 weeks of Coaching mentorship, they were going to help us build a Ecommerce Website, account mentor package, a list of dropshippers and Ebay Research Software.
Our first coach given to us was David Smith. We were wanting them to first start with making us our Ecommerce Website so that we could list our own products with dropshippers at a lower price but they wanted us to sell on Ebay first. We were instructed to begin selling items on EBay first and continue to learn the process of selling and calculating taxes and shipping because this would make us money the quickest while our website was being built. Each week the Coaching was simplistic in showing us tools we can use to obtain knowledge in how to gain income through sales. We were doing everything they requested they even checked out our listings and said that they looked good. We only sold one item and went into the red!
At about 3 weeks into the process, we were called by DAEUS Financial, they told us that they were working with Global Mentorship and were asked to call us to get our EIN number and set up our LLC. This surprised us because we were under the impression that everything that we needed would be included in the package to start our home business. I knew that we were going to need our EIN number because they had told us we would be needing one but was concerned because we did not have the funds to pay for this and he was telling us we had to have it for our protection.
We were upset and asked him if there were going to be any more financial surprises with them asking us for more money and he assured us that everything in the Global mentoring package was everything we needed and that they should had told us about the LLC. We worked out a deal where we would pay $645.00 through the credit card and then he would finance $1500.00 for 12 months. I did not know they were going to be taking it out on the credit card that was not mentioned. I called in July and asked when our EIN # would come in and he said that it should come in, in August. We still have not received it!
Then about a week and a half to two weeks went by, and the Supplier Source called us and they told us that David Smith from Global Mentoring called to help us set up for our Dropshipping part of our company. We were excited at first until after over an hour worth of success stories of why it was so important to set up our business with a Dropshipper, he finally came to the punchline. They wanted more money! We were not happy about this and I told him that we were told that there would not be any more money requested from us because when we paid for our global mentorship it included everything we needed to start a business. He said except dropshipping and he said without a dropshipper we did not have a business. We told him we needed time to think about it and he began to try to pressure sale us again.
My husband was upset and left the room and he noticed that my husband was not on the line so he said he would give us time to talk and he would call us back at a set time. We talked but we felt like we had to try someway and get the money because if we did not then we would be stuck with a business that had no supply for our Ecommerce business. When he called we agreed to go ahead and try and find a money source to pay for it. So we finally pulled some financing together from our retirement it was around the 4th of July so it was a holiday so we could not complete it until the holiday was over. The time over the holiday gave us time to think about everything. After talking and looking over our contract we realized in said it included dropshipping so when he called us back we cancelled the contract which would had been $7400.00.
AT this point, we contacted David Smith and told him that we had doubts about the Ecommerce business and that we felt we were being scammed or at the least strung along because then they started putting their high pressure sales people on to talk with us. They would not take no for an answer. We felt like they were not completely honest with the upfront expenses and that they were not being truthful with us. We asked to speak with Tyler Roberts the first person we spoke with who told us to call him if we were not completely satisfied and that he would work with us. I was told that I could not speak with him. They gave us a new sales representative and I told that person that I spoke with that we felt that had they we had been lied to and that they were not truthful in the beginning about all the expenses that we would occur and had we known them we would not had signed up for the package, because then we would have known that we could not afford it and that we wanted our money back.
He told us that would not be possible and he told us that we would be getting a new mentor and his name was Trevor Shipp. That the reason we were not making any money was because we needed a mentor who specialized in Ebay sales. So we agreed to work with him because they gave us no choice! He called us and we began working with him doing everything he said. He told us that if we did everything he said we would make a profit. He also told us that he would help us create our own Ecommerce Website! So I began doing what he said and we did not sale anything. We were to go to other websites like Khols, Sears, etc and relist their products for a higher price. I told him I did not think it would work because when I shopped I always price shopped. I did not just buy the first thing that I came across. Also, most people go to Ebay to get a bargain! But, I did everything that he said and I did not sale anything but I continued trying anyways.
He was looking at my listings and telling me they looked great. He sent me a list of dropshippers for free! Surprise Surprise! Out of the blue they finally have dropshippers although they were trying to get me to buy some from another company. We worked with him for 2 weeks and then he asked me to go to the State and Tax revenue office to get my state tax id number so that we could set up my Ecommerce Websight. I went down to the New Mexico State Tax Revenue office and the lady told me that I could not do it until I had my EIN number, which I could not apply for because when I signed up for the LLC to get my EIN through DAEUS Financial, because Global Mentors had them call me to set it up. I was told that I could not apply for my EIN number twice. She told me that I could had came to the tax office and applied for my EIN number and gotten it in 10 minutes for me free.
She also told me that I did not actually need the LLC for the type business that we were starting. I was furious because this was more lies and pressure sales by all these companies that are connected in some way! He called me back and I told him that I was done with them and their lies. I told him what she said and that we wanted our money back. I told him had they been honest in the beginning we would not have signed the contract. He said that was not going to happen! I told him that I turned them over to the New Mexico Fraud Dept and that they told me they wanted to see the contracts so their lawyers could look at them and that I had sent them to them. He said that was fine because they had Lawyers too! I have not heard back from the fraud dept and this was about a month ago. I have called and left messages and they have not returned my calls. I have not heard back from Global Mentors as well.
I started to let this all go and just pay it back because I am tired of all the garbage, but then I received a bill from Trevor Shipp for his mentorship services and I realized that the DAEUS company (LLC) was taking out $125.00 a month from my credit card and that they are still taking from me and I am just angry because they are still stealing from me and so I want my money back. It’s not right that they can do people this way and steal from them. Just recently Trevor Shipp, the last mentor billed me $39.95 on 8/19/13 for his mentorship services under E Business Highland without my permission. He was supposedly working for Global Mentoring and that was supposed to be included in our coaching mentorship. I confronted them on this and they returned the funds from E Business Highland for $39.95. That is the reason I have been talking with Shawn from Capital One in order to hopefully get back my money from Global Mentorship and put a stop to DAEUS Financial from withdrawing anymore money from my account.
Shawn from Capital One called with me on the line to talk to Global Mentors about the issue but the phone number they gave Capital One was the wrong phone number. So I looked on my contract and we called the phone number that was on it and they said that was the wrong phone number and they gave us a phone number to the one that was supposed to be the right phone number. The people at that place said that they could not get into my account that it was blocked and that they were told that they could not give me or Capital One the phone number to talk to Global Mentor supervisors. They said that they would send an email and that they would call me back and add Capital One to the conversation so that we could discuss the matter. This was 2 weeks ago and they still have not returned a call to me or to Capital One. I feel that 3 days is not enough time to think about these types of decisions not to mention that they were not upfront about all the other expenses included in the business.
I would like to say the reason I signed with this company was because I thought that a Coaching mentor would keep us from making financial mistakes and since they were including a financial package that included everything to get started then what did we have to lose. No, I don’t feel that they kept their part of the contract. Because to me that included them mentoring me to make good financial decisions, honoring their contract to include the finished website, dropshippers, LLC if they felt it needed it and anything else. I should not have had to purchase other items to complete my package. James Ryan told me when he was trying to sell me the dropshipping and web package that I did not have a business without buying the extra package. He works for the Global Mentors.
You can see that in the Customer notes. The Merchant Global Mentors may say that their clients are wanting to dupe them and plagiarize their software but that is not the case. You will see this through the complaints filed on the Ripoff Report. The case is that their clients have been duped by them believing that they were going to be an honest company who takes pride in helping their client be successful but this is not true. They obviously are out for the money and not interested in customer service or I would not have to be going through this. I don’t want anything else to do with them because they are not looking out for what is best for me or my family.
