*Author of original report: Getting Money Back
First of all they called me claiming to be a "Christian Company" and they only take it a very few select people to help them set up a home business and make unlimited income. They told me that there were only 5 spots left and if I didn't hurry and sign the papers that the 5 positions will be gone. I asked what they do and why was this. A man named Scot Woods replied that they are a credit card company and they don't make money if I don't make money so they make sure that they hold my hand and teach me every step of the way. That they make 3 Cents to every Dollar that I make and that is how they make their money but they were only allowed to take a very few people because of all the time it takes to "hold their hands" and teach them the internet business. He also said that everyone that he had signed up in the past always added more websites because they made so much money and that many of them had become millionaires through the web that the web was the future. He checked my credit and said that there were several people that had signed others up and that if I didn't do it now that there would be no more slots and I have just missed out on a life changing opportunity. He said that I didn't have time to read a contract nor check them out but assured me that they were A OK with the BBB.
In making it sound like they were a teaching GURU that could help me change my life who only had time and money to teach only a few, I was studid enough to hurry and do it. I had recently been divorced in which I was screwed out of any money because it was hidden from me. So I was running on bare necessities as it was trying to raise a child and had to move out of state because he was trying to kill me. Since he said they were a Christian based company, I took it as a sign from God that this is how he is going to help me since my X hid all of our money and I came out with nothing and had to leave my home for my life. He told me that we would talk every day and he was going to set me up with all these people and promised to have my website on the top of all the major search engines. I assumed since this was a Christian based company that I would be fine. Surely God had not allowed me to be screwed big time and then turn around and let me so totally screwed again. Boy was I wrong!
$125 was taken out of a checking account every month. Money that I did not have and that my son did without school lunches just to pay most of the time because I had faith that it was going to work and I would soon make money. Well..... WRONG! I took all the little tests from start up essentials which did me NO good what-so-ever. All the places that they told me to go for products to sell was either no longer in service or wouldn't drop ship like the lessons told me that I had to do.
Some of them wasn't even a place to order products from: they were more of informational site like "how to sell books". (Weird!) So I had to find my own product myself. There were no wholesale products so if I purchased frome them I would have to sell higher than they do so why would someone buy from me instead of them?
Then.... I could never get on top of the search engines. The only way anyone could find me was to type in the exact URL.
Next, I was promised to have it up and running in 72 hours after I received my credit card machine. It took them 2 weeks to help me set that up. Finally It was up and running but took me 1 month to get the stuff on there. Then it wasn't at the top of the search engines. They gave me yr subscription to a company that was supposed to get it on the top. They couldn't do it and couldn't or wouldn't tell me what to do. All they said is that I have to do it myself. Told me a few rules which I did and nothing happened. I followed everything to a T and never ANYTHING. But the $125 kept coming
