This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any concerns. Online Auction Learning Center listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

..... As a successful businessman, Mr. Bowser feels it is critical to listen to his clients and respond properly. By always putting his customers first, Mr. Bowser hopes to maintain FBA Stores as a successful enterprise both now and for many years to come. Another top executive, CEO John Beane told us that Mr. Bowser's personal business philosophy is based on the premise that "strives to add value in service, understanding that a successful business model is based on value-added services, and client care". FBA Stores' John Beane says this, "We are one of the Amazon training companies for helping small businesses, individuals or organizations profit with Amazon."

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Chris Bowser during an onsite inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases towards Online Auction Learning Center.

Online Auction Learning is a company that teaches their students how to build Online businesses. These Online businesses often include selling on amazon, eBay, or anywhere on the Internet. Chris Bowser stated the following about his company, "the vision is to build, continue to educate, and provide the latest information of how to be successful selling online."

Leads for Online Auction Learning are primarily obtained through Facebook, radio advertisement, as well as people searching 'how to sell' on amazon. Potential customers are offered different levels of education, "depending on how much hand holding, and how much training they need. We offer products as low as $27.00, CD's or DVD's they can buy, and then as high as $35,000 for yearly mentor ship weekly coaching calls, and fulfillment to get their amazon business up and running."



CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – ONLINE AUCTION LEARNING CENTER

During the onsite interview Mr. Bowser was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Mr. Coral expressed that a student joined their services an expected to immediately start selling items on their amazon store. Mr. Bowser further explained, "[she] wanted us to run their business for them. We're an educational company, and we teach people all the information on how to sell, but were not going to do it for them. So some students expect us to run their store for them and expect us to pretty much do all the work to run their business." When situations like this arise Online Auction Learning is always willing to further explain their services, and if there was an initial miscommunication they are willing to refund the consumers money.

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mr. Bowser stated the following, "we fulfill products to amazon, and with products going to amazon’s warehouses, and then going to the end consumer. There’s situations that occur where a product gets damaged or is defective and sometimes brand new business owners expect no problems to ever come about, and some of them have put the blame on us as far as products wise." In order to remedy these situations, "if the products were defective when we sent them down which is never the case, but we’ve always refunded them, and even bought the products back from them. So those are a couple of the instances that came up and frankly anyone else that had complained was just looking to get out of the business and we’ve always refunded them when they’ve asked for their money back."

When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to make things right with the consumer per the request of Ripoff Report, Mr. Bowser stated, "as we’ve grown we’ve tripled our employees in size. We now have over 40 employees. We’ve increased our customer service to where they have numerous phone lines that they can call in and get support. Anyone that invests in our company has over 40 people on their side helping them grow their business."

Online Auction Learning is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, "customer satisfaction is our number one priority here. If our students aren’t successful, our company is never successful, and this day and age with the Internet if you don’t provide a good product then people will hear about you. So over the last two years we’ve done a very good job as far as customer service, and keeping our clients happy. Where we haven’t had really any complaints, and I think we’ve only had one person over the last two years ask for their money back, and we’ve provided them with that."

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED


---------------------------------------------------------------------


Chris Bowser is a scam artist and fraud.  I know those are harsh words, but let me explain as I feel obligated to help others not make the same mistake I did.

Recently I attended a seminar where Chris Bowser was a speaker.  He was supposed to provide lots of information on how to use eBay.  I was excited.  I've sold a few things on eBay without much success so I really wanted to learn more.

The disappointment came when I realized that Chris Bowser was there with the sole purpose of selling his eBay course.  Even with those feelings, I was compelled and motivated to buy his course.  His presentation was, in fact, quite compelling even with the lack of educational content in it.

I should mention that the thing that put me over the top to buy was his offer of a free laptop. What a joke - more on that later.

I spend several weeks doing my best to understand the materials.  Then, I attended his eBay Accademy training.  What waste of time.  The entire focus of the workshop was to sell me more stuff when I hadn't seen any results from the first part of the program.

After attending this workshop, which provided little value, I immediately asked for a refund.  I was told that I wasn't entitled to one, since I had attended the workshop and used the program for longer than the 3 day cancellation period.

As a business person, I can accept as a response.  However, I still can't help from feeling misled.  So, I decided to do some research on Chris Bowser.  It was these findings that let me to the conclusion that Chris Browser is a scam artist and a fraud.

Here are my findings:

#1)  Chris states in his offer that I am to receive this software with my purchase:

http://www.auctionprofitgenerator.com/

He states this is a $2995 Value.  HOWEVER, I can get the exact same software for free here:

(((link redacted)))

Even this is simply an affiliate program for Terapeak.  ANYONE IN THE WORLD can get this software for a few dollars a month.

#2) I've learned that Chris Bowser has NEVER sold his eBay Academy for $2995.  How can this be the value of this event?

#3) Chris Bowser claims that at one point he was listing (after just a few months) 500 to 1000 auctions every week.  This would make him one of the top powersellers on eBay.  Do a search for top powersellers and he is no where to be found.

#4) 7 years ago, there was automated eBay listing tools.  Therefore Chris Bowser had to list 1000 items per week manually.  That's about impossible for anyone...

#4) If Chris Bowser was really listing 4000 items/month as he claims after just a few months, why did it take him 3 1/2 years before he had a positive cash flow of $15000.  It just doesn't add up.  Let's conclude that 3 1/2 years later he was still listing only 4000 items per month.  That means that Chris averaged $3.50 per item sold. 

I asked around and nobody seems to be able to find Chris Bowsers eBay ID.  If he can show his ID it would solve everything.  Let me tell you what you should look for:

7 years of selling on eBay and 1000 items per week is 52000 items listed per year or 350,000 items listed on eBay in the last 7 years.  If 50% of the people buy, he would have 175000 successful transactions and more than 150,000 feedback.  There are not very eBay sellers recognized with this type of volume that I've found in my research and Chris Bowser definitely isn't one of them.

In conclusion, don't waste your money on this scam and rip off artist unless he shows you his eBay ID before you buy his program.  His program doesn't work.  His inflated values of his program don't work.  The laptop isn't work the hardware it's made with.  His workshop is a complete waste of time.  AVOID CHRIS BOWSER!
