I also have a near-transaction with this company but I did my 'due diligence' before forking up the fee of 8500 dollars.
A guy named Cary Grossman sent me information on the broker certification in response to the inquiry I made on their site. I was looking for an import broker for my own business when I came across their offer. It seemed like a good opportunity and offer since they say the training fee is reimbursable after a certain number of transactions you make as a certified broker once you have completed their training. They even offered to train my husband for free.
I did some research on this company including reverse phone look-up and whois database and a connection between GSS and GSW turned up on BBB. I looked up Global Services Worldwide (GSW Imex) on Rip-off Report and nothing turned up on the company but something did on Global Secure Services (GSS). Same story, just a different company name. They claim to get you certified as a broker and help you set up your own export import business to the tune of USD 8500 and a monthly fee thereafter.
I am thankful that I did some research otherwise I likely would have ended up with the 8500 setback. I called an office in the same building that GSW says they hold office in and the operator said that she sees employees going to work in the said office but never really spoke to any of them. She said they could be legit but personally, I am not taking any chances. I also called the office of the Nevada Economic Development to verify them but no one has called me back yet.
I spoke to a recognized authority in the export industry and he confirmed that this company keeps changing their name to avoid getting pinned down. And yes, the certification is a worthless piece of paper. Entirely unnecessary, especially at the said cost.
GSW has paid ads everywhere on the internet and that is about all that turns up if you do a search for reviews on the company. Hence, I am writing this comment about GSW Imex and I hope google picks it up for those who will search for feedback on this company next time.
My unsolicited advice to everyone looking for a business is to always perform due diligence before parting with your hard earned money. The sad truth is there are many vultures out there that will take advantage of us if we are not careful.
