I want to let everyone know about the scam that UNIMweb has put together in collaboration with Irvine Web Works, Axin Finacial services and Innovative Merchant solutions.
The first thing UNIMweb does offer a convention as adverstised on TV, where they get you all excited to sell their product because it is supposed to help the poor working class of this world become "rich". We should have known better than to trust a "get rich quick idea", but as we put it then, it was only $129.99, this seemed like a fair share of money but not if you were looking at all the money it was supposed to make us. The next part of our story is similar to a lot of the other complaints about UNIMweb, so I will not go into detail but the short of it is they promised we would make a lot of money with this investment.
Shortly after the seminar we were contacted by someone at UNIMWeb, who wanted us to really make an investment, as we were told that they would show us how to sell websites for $800-$900 each and they promised they would help us sell enough sites that we would be able to pay back the amount of money that we invested in a year. We were told to max out our credit cards and then transfer them to a 0% card until the first year was up, within which we should have paid back that initial investment of $4500. Well we should have known that was too good to be true, but we were hoping that this was our chance for finacial freedom.
Ha! More like finacial woe, with all the fees that it took us to get the site up and running it has now cost us well over $6000 dollars, there have been many fees that they did not tell us about then,(hosting, merchant accounts, search engine submittal, dropshippers fees, etc.)and setting up the site was not easy at all. The people at UNIMweb and Irvine Web Works thrive off of people who really do not know that much about the internet or computors. As we recently found out we could have contacted a professional to set this all up(EVERYTHING!!!)for less than $1000 dollars.
Well, it has been 7 months and we had our first sale last month,but we still are no where close to breaking even. We are not selling web sites, we never recieved any training on how to sell sites, instead we developed a site selling gifts and collectables. We went through 12 training sessions with our coach, who ran us through how to work with the impossible software for 12 weeks.
After these sessions were up, we asked when we were supposed to get the training to sell websites, to really start making money. He informed us that he never recieved any information that we were to be trained on selling sites and to contact Chad Hudson at UNIMweb to figure this out.
Well, we called him over and over, first his wife had a baby and he was out for 2 weeks, then he moved offices, and we had the wrong extension, then he was busy every time we called for the next two weeks,so we left endless voicemails. We never recieved a call back from him, we did not know what to do next.
It is hard for us to admit that we made a mistake, but it is even harder to know that we will be in debt for a long time because of our mistake unless something changes dramatically.
Please do not let them continue this, they are making a ton of money off of many hard working people, while all they offer are empty promises.
Also whatever you do, do not sign with Axim Financial Services, they will continue to charge you the $89.90 per month even if you die.(As per the contract!!!)
If anyone is planning on filing let us know and we will definately join you. If we decide to we will let you know.
