You may have heard about the Free Give Aways that some companies are doing. Basically they set you up an account where you refer others to sign up for offers. Once you get an X amount of offers, they supposidly send you a free item. Xbox 360 elite systems, Ipods, Flat Screens, PS3, Wii, and more are supposed to be up for grabs.
Well, I am here to share my story of getting riped off. I worked with Trainn, aka Transcendent Innovations, Inc. I spent a lot of money advertising thier site to get others to do "offers." After two months and money spent I finally got to 9/9 referrals. I submitted my account for "approval" but I already new I had 9/9 referrals. There site listed a green checkmark next to them all. After all, it wouldn't be a good referral if it didn't have a green check right?
Wrong, my account came back, now it was 7/9. The company offered NO explanations with their review. I repeatedly tried to contact with very sub par responses. They gave poor explanations, and didn't answer all my questions. The customer support is horrible. There is no address to write to, there is no phone number listed anywhere on their site. After, complaining through their "contact form" my account mysteriously went from 7/9 to 6/9 again with no explanation. No more red X's, just the fact that one of my green check mark lines disappeared.
In conclusion, I recommend you save yourself a lot of headache, and stay away from Trainn. Transcendent Innovations, Inc. is in business to scam people. They mess with your referrals because they can. Who is to tell them what a good referral is. Referrals just disappear and how can you prove it? They are in business to make the money on the offers through there partners. They will not give you your prize unless they made so much off of your referrals. That is what makes Trainn a ripoff. Transcendent Innovations, Inc. will no longer get my business.
If this company does end up taking care of these problems I will remove this. So far, bad communication.
