My husband and I attended a "seminar" for Anthony Morrison's conference training program "Secrets of a Self-Made Internet Millionaire.  His advertisement was misleading.  Free dinner, get in 30 minutes early, will start at 6:00 p.m., Free tablet computer to the first 50 to call, register and attend the event.  He guaranteed a fun, relaxed and informative 90 minute conference that will change your financial outlook forever.  Plus!!!! I'll give you the top 10 companies plus the 6 products that help keep me rich.  All you have to do is attend my FREE conference coming to your area."

We attended, and found that none of the above was provided.  We had to stand in a area for almost 30 minutes past the time they said we would be seated.  The event didn't start at 6:00 p.m. It was neither informative, fun, or relaxed.  There was no DINNER, only a cold sandwich, chips and water.  The presenter was rude, and refused to answer questions.  And, when asked about the 50 tablet computers he said yes that 50 of us would receive them, but that we had to call the number we had previously called to register for the "conference" to receive a list of winners.  Also the time was definitely not 90 minutes, it drug on for over 2 hours and 45 minutes.

After we told one of the "salesmen" that we weren't interested in paying them $3000.00 immediately to attend a 3 day class, we were shunned, and were not allowed to ask any questions, it was as if we were not visible to any of them. We really didn't think this was a "for real" opportunity, and once we arrived and were able to see the employees, who didn't appear to be "self-made millionaires" just by their appearance, we knew this was just another steal your money scheme.

Definitely the advertising was deceitful, and misleading.  I really felt sorry for a few of the people, that we could see, were struggling financially, and looking for a way out of their troubles.  They were being lead down a path that was going to cost them money they didn't have, and then end no closer to a solution to their money worries.  All of this dishonesty, and then a pitiful meal to go along with it. 

I was able to see immediately that these "employees" wouldn't be in this line of work, if his plan really worked.  They would be millionaires, having fun, traveling, not trying to sell a lame program to people who were trusting them to provide a way out of their struggles.  How mean, and cruel is that Mr. Morrison for preying on defenseless, struggling people especially in this time of financial ruin for many!!!

Ponzi Scheme between Anthony and his suggested companies to usecompanies

AUTHOR: Mark - (United States of America)

The Anthony Morrison web marketing is nothing but a "ponzi scam" between Anthony Morrison ($19.00), Aweber ($19.00 recurring monthly), Hostzilla ($149.00 recurring every 3 months)and Progress,(a help site for Aweber that wanted to charge me $300.00 for assistance connecting up all my sites and get things going).

This all started back in August and now I have officially cancelled all my memberships. I had signed up for the simple Anthony $19.00 "do it yourself option" and not the $400.00 "they set everything up for you option" that they push for a reason and now I know why. Plus all his books and CD crap he pushes for more money.

After all, I have a BS in Business, (I know I should have know better) and plenty experience with the web. How hard could it be to get this going? Well, after listening to the webinars and setting up Hostzilla, Clickbank and then started on Aweber. I was 92% complete on setup but for some reason I kept running into problems on Aweber. So, I called Aweber and they directed me to Progress for help and after hearing they wanted $300.00... I lost it and cancelled everything cause it seemed they were all in on this together.

Lesson learned the hard way...

Beware if you choose to follow this Web Marketing scam and if you do and have the money, choose the 400-500 dollar "they set everything up for you option". But my bet is that it will still wind up costing you more as well.

Huge Ripoff..Avoid Anthony Morrison at ALL costs!

AUTHOR: GaleStewart - (United States of America)

I relate to what you're saying. I, unfortunately, did buy into all the BS Anthony Morrison was spouting off. I was instructed that when I attended the "workshop" that I would be given the tools and information to have a successful business. I paid the initial fee of ($4500), which was hard to come by as it is as a single mother. However, I had a feeling of...okay, now I'm on my way. I think I even started to hum the theme song from The Jeffersons "Moving on up" :)

Shortly after that initial fee I started to get bombarded with calls from them wanting more and more money. Saying I NEEDED money for all these services in order for me to have a successful business. Everything from Web Development to payroll to bookkeeping. I did not need many of these services as its just me. However again, I paid the money. After each time a different company name was on my credit card statement. Never the same one twice. Why did they charge me under different names? A legitimate company, one that provides the services that it claims to, charges under the same name. For all I know Billy Joe Bob in Tumbleweed, Arkansas is getting my money. Ive called them on numerous occasions and every time getting a different answer. I have been told that Anthony Morrison or Adrian Morrison would contact me and I have yet to hear from him. Im starting to think they dont even exist. Who does business like this? 

You're very fortunate on having not fell into Anthony Morrison's trap. I wish I would've NEVER done it. I mean...

($17,400) later, I am now on food stamps, facing a potential bankruptcy and God knows what else all because I trusted these people and they didnt hold true to their word. Online Strategies, whatever they want to call themselves, hasnt done anything but take food from my childrens
mouths. I cant feed them with empty promises! The worst business decision I have ever made was to get into bed with these crooks. I was struggling then and now Im worse!! Ive had to change my number several times because creditors keep calling for money and thanks to PMI, I CANT PAY THEM! I thought the feeling of being ripped off from Anthony Morrison was bad. Try having to send your children to school with clothes too small because you did not have the money to buy them new school clothes. Or the pressure of making the little bit of money I get from food stamps stretch all month so my kids dont go hungry. This is no way to live. I mean I wanted to start a business so I would not have the worries and stressors of making ends meet. 

I had to contact an attorney on the steps that I needed to take in order to get my money reimbursed and he referred me to another law firm that better deals with companies like PMI, whose sole purpose seems to be to bankrupt unsuspecting people like myself. I spoke with Richard at 302-300-3757. He was really helpful and considerate of my situation, which is a lot more than I received from the consultants at PMI. I did not have to pay anything upfront like PMI or Online

Strategies, which gave me peace of mind. I could not afford to get ripped off again. I was required to follow up with him a lot more than Ihad hoped for but all and all, it has been a success. I got my money and Im just going to do the steps of opening my business the BEST wayand thats WITHOUT Anthony Morrisons help or the help of PMIWHOOPS! Online Strategies. Whatever THEY want to call themselves, Im just going to stick to calling them SCAM ARTISTS!!!

So, to sum up everything...




Government AssistanceYUP

Feeling like you cant provide for your childrenCHECK

All thanks to the one and only Anthony Morrison and this outfit that hes running.

After speaking to Richard, I got something a lot more valuable than I thought I wouldSatisfaction!!

Getting my money back and sticking it to Anthony Morrison .PRICELESS!
