Complaint Review: Pacific Web Works Aka Tradeworks Marketing Aka Epenzio, Bring It Home
Pacific Web Works Aka Tradeworks Marketing Aka Epenzio, Bring It HomeSalt Lake City, Utah U.S.A.
TradeWorks Marketing Aka Pacific Web Works Aka Epenzio, Bring It Home ripoff, con, scam, misleading. The only thing they should receive credit for is putting together a well-orchestrated SCAM Seminar! Salt Lake City Utah
*Consumer Suggestion: Who to contact to possibly get your money back
Robb Mulford, their speaker, is a pro at delivering their hype! The silver-tongued devil must have made a fortune for them that day! We ended up investing a total of $1,839.00 and we didn't even buy the entire package that they were trying to sell.
They offer you a Website, which they tell you, can be built and, up and operating within a matter of hours! Three months later, I was still asking for Tech Support and I have built 2 of my own Dynamic sites previously without nearly half the problems. Tech Support was RUDE, RUDE, RUDE and rarely ever helpful.
You are also given a years subscription to the TradeWorks Product Club where you find discounted products to sell on your website or on EBay. Discounted? Hardly! The identical products are already listed on EBay and most of the "Buy Now" prices are far lower than the prices that TW Product Club offers. What a Joke!
Also included in our package was a Merchant Account which allows you to take credit cards on your site and they take care of the processing! We were told that this part of the package came to about $1,000.00. I've since cancelled ALL dealings with them and obviously at a big loss. We'd paid the $1,839.00 up front with a credit card yet, but mind you, there was still an ongoing service charge of $29.95 a Month for Merchant Account.
As I said, they told us that the Merchant Account was $1,000.00 of the $1,839.00 package. Yet, today I received a promo from Intellipay (the Merchant Acct people) offering me $100.00 for each friend I'd refer to their company. AND my friends, would pay no set-up fees, no application fees and no service fees for 2 months which, they also say, is a $95.00 value! $95.00 value???? @#%^&I*@*$@!!! What about the $1,000.00 we paid? This Promo was like adding the Ultimate Insult to my already painful Injury! I couldn't believe it! I wouldn't suggest them to my worst enemy let alone, a friend!!
I also mentioned previously that we didn't even purchase the entire package that they were offering. I think that would have brought the total to somewhere around $3,800.00.
Oh yes, and shortly after I got my site up and running, they called me and wanted to offer me, (and just maybe 3 other people who showed such promise) a chance at their Mentor Program. I would be assigned my own Private Mentor. After asking many, many, and many more questions, I found that this private mentor only sang his guidance to the tune of another $6,000 to $8,000 investment!
I do hope this will help other unsuspecting people, like ourselves, to steer clear of any involvement with these people and their empty promises! Stay away from their Seminars! What they do to people, is wrong! The majority of the age group attending the Seminar was either very young or, Senior Citizens. Not many in between. You knew that these young people were trying to make a career for themselves, while the older people, like us, were trying to supplement their pensions. It's all very sad! Just immoral!
So believe me when I tell you, they know how to work it! Beware! Stay AWAY!
