Modern Marketing Systems Business Group USA Jim Ford Fake Websites that generate no income Scam! Phoenix Arizona
*Consumer Suggestion: ALWAYS Check here first!
We put a down payment of $2995 and paid the other $2995 six months later. We have a written guarantee that says that if we don't make at least our six thousand back in the first year that we will receive a 100% refund. It's now been a year and we have received about five dollars in assorted small amounts from Google.
I've talked to Jim Ford a couple of times but he is a completely unreasonable person to try to talk to. Everytime I've called he's blamed it on us! The last time I talked to him I asked him for a refund and he just said 'No!'. Since they were supposed to do all the work and we paid everything we were told to, when we were told to, how can it possibly be our fault if it didn't work??
When I contacted them at six months, when I was considering cancelling the second payment, he said that the reason we hadn't made any money was because the second payment was for advertising and our sites hadn't even been advertised at all yet! This makes no sense whatsoever if they really expected us to make back all of our money in the twelve months allowed. But he reminded me about the refund and we believed that they only way we would get any of it back was to fulfill our end of the deal. So we did.
Now, I'm receiving emails from the company that they are upgrading our websites!! Oh goody! Which, considering the timing, seems rather shady!
They also seem to have done business before under the name Business Group USA and ripped other people off, using the same scam.
Anyway, for us, they've made a bad situation much worse.
Please don't give these people any of your money!
