I ordered some books and tapes from Anthony Morrison titled Advertising Profits from Home which teaches affiliate marketing. Several weeks after I received the books I received a soliciting phone call from Wealth information Network claiming to be the on line coaching for Anthony Morrison. I was promised I would make back my investment of $5,000 with in six months. I am a senior who never used a computer before. I asked Wealth Information if this would be a problem. I was told not at all they would easily teach me.
I paid $5,000 and was read a verbal contract on the phone. I asked for a copy of the contract to be sent. I never received a contract at all. I never signed anything.
I started talkng with a coach once a week. It was very difficult and not easy at all to access the web site and try and understand the coach. I was told not to read the books by Anthony Morrison just listen to the coaches.I now know this was so I would not figure out I was not learning affiliate marketing at all as promised.
Several weeks after the online training began I got more soliciting calls from the Tax Club who said they were with this same coaching group.O was told that I needed the Tax Club to figure out the business of this online teaching and I would not move ahead unless I had this service too. I signed up with very high pressure sales from The Tax Club. Reluctantly I signed up. By now I had invested over $16,000. As the lessons progressed I never had a mention of affiliate marketing. I asked the coaches and I was told that I was not learning affiliate marketing since there was no money in it. I was being taught drop shipping which was not affiliate marketing.Drop shipping requires you to sell product and collect money and ship products. Affiliate marketing simply has you list products on a web site and you simply make a small commission on referrals.About this same time The Tax Club called and tried to get more money from me saying that to be really successful some people spent as much as $50,000.I was told I had only gotten the basic program. I was freightened so I called the Wealth information group PMI was the name of the coaching group. I asked i Wealth Information and PMI were associated with Anthony Morrison as I had been told.I was told no they were not at all.I then called The Tax Club and was told that they were not with Anthony Morrison at all that Wealth Information gave them my name . I was angry and scared. I am a senior lady I guess I was raised to trust that what people say is true.I called Wealth Information and cancelled do to the fact I was not receiving training in what I paid for. I was told I would get a call back, no one ever called me back.I cancelled The Tax Club due to dishonest solicitations and false affiliations. I never got a call back from The Tax Club at all either. THis is such a dishonest group who thrive on dishonestly and misrepresentations of goods and services. I disputed all these charges and was able to get back $11.000 from the Tax Club. My Chase Visa backed me up and agreed I did not get what I paid for. The Discover Company was not at all helpful even though I sent documentation to show I did not get what I paid for, affiliate marketing.I never got a copy of the contract from Wealth Information till I filed a dispute with Discover card. The crazy thing is the contract was titled Advertising Profits From Home which is the title of Anthony Morrison's book on affiliate marketing. I told Discover Card I did not receive what I paid for. Discover Card said it did not matter that I never got a contract, all that mattered was I gave them my card number.Todd Stowe of Wealth Information said I was not due a refund because Wealth Information and PmI coaches had given me all this information and I could not give it back.Todd also said I was not forced to access the web site. There was no mention of the fact I never got training in affiliate marketing as promised when I gave my credit card.Wealth information wasted my time training me in drop shipping which I did not want at all. It took several weeks to realize that I was not receiving training in affiliate marketing. Wealth Information only gives a three day cancellation period, it takes more than three days to realize you are not getting what you paid for.I am still confident I will get back the $5,000 I paid to Wealth Information do to deceptive business practices. I was induced to sign up based on false affiliations and I was promised to receive affiliate marketing like the books I bought by Anthony Morrison. I accepted in good faith and I was taken advantage of and lied to.I would caution anyone from doing business with Wealth Information Network.They should be called Wealth Deception network.I feel this also is senior abuse,I did not clearly understand the terms and policies and I never got anything in writing if I had wanted to cancel.I had no phone number or contact information.
