This company has a pretty impressive website. They tried to get me to give them $8,500.00 dollars upfront, then they would train me in international trade. I have found out through this website that they are rip off artist. Do not do business with this company

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Research Suggestions

AUTHOR: Haiyan - (Canada)

Some friendly suggestions for you to consider before taking out a 2nd mortgage to buy into this or any similar expensive program.

1. Make direct contact with at least 5 or 6 people who have purchased this program and ask them if they feel they got their money's worth?

Here is how you can find them:

Perform a google search on the following keyword phrase: (be sure to use the quotation marks at the beginning and end of the phrase) -
"World Wide Cooperative of Certified Trade Brokers" - this will provide you with a list of many of the web sites for people who have purchased this company's program and who have now been sold a backend product of a template
web site which basically has the same info on all the sites except for a few bits of personalized contact details.

Because these are template sites, you will find the phrase "World Wide Cooperative of Certified Trade Brokers" on all of them. You will also see that some of the google findings are advertisements that have this phrase in them (from the company and/or program buyers) - just skip them and find the web sites - they are very easy to spot once you visit a couple. Look for
the common graphics and text content.


2. If your conversations are positive, great, but before you commit to a 2nd mortgage on your home, do a google search on the street address listed for this company but be sure to put "quotation" marks around it - like this "45
Street Name" - this targets just that address.

Now look at all of the results that show up with that address - see all the different names and if you do a little more searching (which you should considering you may be spending $8,500) you will find that it appears this is an address occupied by a firm that provides Nevada incorporations to many, many businesses.

Nothing bad about that since many companies do incorporate in Nevada for tax reasons - if I were you however, I would want to know the 'exact" physical location of the offices of the company you are considering doing business
with. Remember that voicemail phone systems can forward to any number of locations.

3. If you then do a cross check google search on the telephone number 000-000-0000 you will find that the top listing is the Secretary of the State of Nevada and they have the company listed at the street address you will find
this company listed at as being a Registered Resident Agent which confirms the information alluded to in number 3 above.

The last time I checked it took a lot of hard work and time to get $8,500 together and if you are unwilling to do the above research, you probably should reconsider going into any business for yourself.

Global Secure Services

I have spoken via the phone and email on an ongoing basis over the past 2years with an agent of GSS. He is professional and non-pushy. However that does not mean what you have states GSS is a ripoff company is not true. In short, I would like an update or any additional information regarding this company, before I invest my money. I have very strong contacts in the Asian markets, so before I go an destroy my contact I would like some additional information.

Proof of Inconsistent Facts for GSS

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

OK - while you get your "tangible evidence", you may want to ask your GSS contact to explain why Global Secure Services has only been listed with the Nevada Secretary of State since 2004, yet in their advertisement on another site they claim to be in business since 1984!

Manny's latest info. regarding GSS

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

A representative from Global Secure Services has just contacted me, and advised me that I was incorrect in regard to my last posting. This gentleman was very professional, as well as very convincing. He has offered to provide me with "tangible" evidence that Global Secure Services is a legitimate company. As I mentioned to him...GSS sells what appears to be an awsome product that I am very interested in. My only concern is that with so many dishonest claims on the internet, I am really looking forward to being proven wrong here. GSS has taken a major step today towards accomplishing that in my eyes. Please stay tuned...as soon as I have "tangible" evidence that this company is 100% legitamate. I will update this advise accordingly.
