I hired Internet Advancement in Mar 06 to enhance SEO my new startup site. I paid the about $1800 and never got quality service nor refund. They created 5 portals to help me and never had intention to remove them and their control from my sites. Prevented me from realizing a potential of $100,000 or more in income. Piroted and diverted all worldwide Google Yahoo Alexa and 50 other search engine traffic. My site at www.carcommtelecom.com and www.carcommonlioneshopping.com and www.acartelli.com have been in a continuous stage of Hi Jack with my not knowing how to deal with the situation. All four of sites named are all on the Internet Advancement server and use the same address and IP location. This controlling company officially would not disengage at the agreement letters of termination I requested in Aug 06 until May 07. But did not disdengage. I have to dig all out of my temp files every day and put into quarantine. They re surface the next day in spite I have 3 of the finest security programs made. The ATDMT trojan is a controlling one which has dominated the sites. They have replicated my Home pages thru the Temp internet files cookies and as I operate as an Affiliate Merchant advertiser with tedious contracts to each merchant and with a $100 commission tied to each of the est 100 banners involved.

This company was indicted in 2005 by Washington state for fraud and larceny plus plus. They need to be p[ut out of business. I have a full report filed now with all law authorities and the Texas Attorney General

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

First Truth Bomb of Many

AUTHOR: Sem Do-gooder - (U.S.A.)

Many statements made by Matt (a young Captures salesman) are false. This one in particular....

"Captures and WMS are in no way affiliated with IA. There have been individuals who have worked here who also used to be employed by IA (not in upper management)"

The fact is the two of Captures and WMS "upper management" are made up of ex-Internet Advancement employees. 1) Gill Walker (the owner) started off as a salesman for Internet Advancement, he saved his pennies while working for them until he was able to pay one of Internet Advancements own programmers to make him some sort of lead generation database and start his own company. 2) Brad Bartolone who is the President of Sales is also an ex-Internet Advancement salesperson, he is also one of Gill's closest friends, they have lived as roommates for a long time. So as you can see Matt is trying to put a friendly spin on his company and if you question me as a source, let me give you a little background on myself.

I am an Interactive Marketing Executive who works in Seattle. I run and operate corporate blogs, I have personally planned and implemented the SEO of many large companies, but the truth is I have a dark beginning. When I started in this industry I started as an employee of either Captures or Internet Advancement (to protect my own career and family I am not going to specifically tell you which one because it would be a great hint as to who I am). I worked as a sales associate and I had no real education of how online marketing worked, all I knew was what my company told me, "you need to sell these people, if you don't they will never be successful and you wont get paid" I knew it was wrong they way I would pressure unsuspecting website owners into giving me what money they had.

At one time Brad Bartolone gave me this little gem of advice, "...find out if they have a credit card. If they do find out what the limit is, and if it is too low then tell them you can help them get a credit extension..." he went further to say "..not only will this get you the biggest sale possible but they will love you for helping them get more credit.."

I have since received a great education, maintained a great passion for Online Marketing (the real kind) and developed my own career. Until now I have never told anyone where my career truly began, but I am sick of seeing the SEO name get dragged through the mud because of irresponsible ownership. This will be the first of many posts, I plan on going through all of the entries on this site and others so that I can chime in with a thread of honesty.

Internet Advancement Fraud Technicques in Website Stealing

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

Internet Advancement utilizes high tech processes utilizing their own company connections og 4 GreatBuys, Atlas Solutions and ATDMT known as a severe risk TROJAN which enters sites obtrusively, exploits security flaws, tracks browsing activities with installed applications, installs without consent and disables programs and systems. Uses add ons and followups to steal your domain name and then re directs your traffic to their own servers to complete the grand larceny and fraud. Find it at ATDMT. Over many months it has been observed the taking and copying of web sites thru the temp files and controlled in the Int Explorer browser, in spite of three top security systems. An official report is now on file with the Washington state Attorney Generals office. They have informed us that new charges and investigations are under way now since Dec 07. I will fight these thieves until I die. They will learn that it is not nice to mess with retired military men their business and their incomes. Later report to list all involved in this fraud.
