A previous person made an almost exact report but I have a few twists. This is exactly what happened to me, don't fall for it yourself!!
I was contacted by "Steve" from North Point Web Mall who gave me a very convincing pitch regarding an online business that was basically set up completely for me. He told me that he would do all the work, North Point Web Mall was a reputable company that has been in business for over 10 years and has very happy customers making lots of money with no time or effort involved. In order to set up this business I was told I needed to make a one time "Setup fee" of $99.00 and I did not need to do anything else. I would receive a refund after 30 days if I wasn't happy with the program. Also, after the first $2500.00 that I made I would get my "Setup fee" back. I agreed to do this and was then transferred to Patricia. She then gave me a confirmation number and verified that I would receive an email to confirm. She also gave me a toll free customer service number that I could call "anytime to ask questions" which of course is never answered! She set up an appointment for me to speak with a mentor and told me that I would be speaking with Gregory Samuels who would answer all my questions and explain how the whole thing worked.
On the day of my appointment, I spent about 45 minutes on the phone answering HIS questions, mostly about my economic situation...personal details about how much I have in investments (I mostly lied because I was starting to get suspicious) whether I own my home, how much I have in credit card debt and availability etc. He then told me that he had an offer to make that would create a website, start a marketing campaign which would run from 4/25/13 to 4/27/14 and would guarantee 30 thousand targeted visitors to my web site and I would get 30% commission from these sales. I was told I would make $1397.00 per month, and up to $16,765.00 per year. I was then given a lesson in wise business investing that was a waste of time. Of course the only way I could have all this set up and earning while I did nothing was to send North Point Web Mall an additional $4750.00 which I told him I did not have. He told me that I should pull this from my IRA since I have substantial investments there and the stock exchange would not get me anywhere near the return on my investment that his company could generate. He assured me "It's your money you can do whatever you want with it, you can write off the amount at the end of the year as a business expense." There were other promises too which put me at ease that I was making the right choice. Since I have not been happy with my IRA I decided to do this, so I got wire instructions to send them the money including the routing number for North Lake Consulting LLC. I was to wire this amount to them through a Wells Fargo bank account (funny how that bank seems to come up a lot with these scams.....?) I spoke with Amy the next day to let her know I had started the process and would be sending a Wire Transfer of the funds the next day. I insisted that she send me an email stating exactly what I would be paying for which, amazingly, she did. This step convinced me that I had something legitamate.
A few days later I got my check from my IRA and attempted to wire the funds to them. My credit union contacted me to say that the routing number was not correct. I called North Point Web Mall, after several attempts, I finally reached the infamous Amy in customer service. I told her that the routing number was incorrect, she made a couple snide comments to me "When I spoke to you before I told you the routing number had changed, don't you remember that?" of course I believe she had her clients confused because that conversation never occurred. I got the correct number and sent the funds believing that it was just a bad day for her.
On May 6th I recieved 3 checks totalling $524.99 and thought I was really onto something here. Of course 2 days later I got the infamous call from Gregory Samuels asking for the remaining $7500.00 which would then put me in the "Elite Category" and result in an opportunity to make far more money than my other campaign. When I told him I wanted to think on it a day he agreed to call me back the next day, we set up an appointment time, which he missed. I started the process again but then I thought about how much I would be losing if I didn't make more than the original 3 checks and I stopped buying into it.
When I have attempted to contact this company they NEVER return phone calls or emails. That to me is a HUGE red flag. I have been waiting for a response to some simple questions for over a week now and that got me interested in investigating further. Now I see these people are doing this to a lot of other people, perhaps its time we fight back huh? I will be pursuing this to the best of my abilities, I don't have 4K to lose and I doubt anyone else does either.
NORTH POINT WEB MALL IS A HUGE FRAUD, DON'T BELIEVE THE PROMISES, THEY LIE!!!!
