World Traders Association ripoff - maybe? what training? -What help?- still looking - outlandish ripoff Sylmar California
*Consumer Comment: Ron you are tatally correct. WTA is a BIG ripoff. COUNT ON ME TO FIGHT BACK.
*Consumer Suggestion: Dear "Ron in Green Bay"
I hope I am mistaken - I still have faith. (or I am incredibly naive). Before I signed up with WTA and paid out the $6,990.00 (I understand the fee is now $8,450.00) WTA gave me a phone number list of 11 "associates" to contact so I could get a first hand account of their experiences dealing with WTA and how they where doing in business now that they are "trained."
I heard all good to great comments & stories of success. Of course I didn't think I would get a list of unhappy former associates and I considered that as I listened and discussed their experiences.
I also contacted "score" for some mentoring advise on joining and was told that they had some reservations (especially with the WTA contract) but, I thought I did a good job of investigating prior to joining and was doing the right thing.
Since part of the advertising supplied by WTA included an endorsement and positive review from entrepreneur magazine. (star burst - "The world is your oyster" - average member income $103,000.00)- I also have many years of experience in retail sales so I thought - great -I should do very well (with WTA help & my hard work).
Bottom line - Training (poor) help (some) success (none)! Oh and WTA support the past 8 months --(please) Where did I go wrong? I wish I had my money back.
If WTA is for real - I must have personally talked to ALL the successful associates they have, when I got the 11 member call list.
I hope I am wrong. WTA if you are interested in replying or HELPING please speak up. I have not given up YET, but Right now I don't think you would want me on your "member call list".
