I saw this post when trying to get this "company" to stop charging my credit card and spent the whole day trying to get through to this scam. As a web developer I never thought in a million years that I could be scammed but I was! Upon some more research and looking at the code on their website, they are in fact a plagiarized copy of another company. They didnt even take off some of the other companys information from their code. This really is a website that was cut and pasted and I now believe based on how they conveniently told me that I could pay later to access their fantastic program by simply inputting my credit card. Well thats when the trouble started, first the login information must have also been a copy because there was nothing I didnt already know and couldnt believe anyone would pay $10 much less le them keep charging for $600. Well after 2 charges and going to my bank to get them to stop they charged a different amount so my bank could not stop it I guess. [continued below]....

..... I could never get through to anyone. SO I finally had to get a new debit card. I hope that my bank believes me that this was a phishing fraud because Im not sure they understand how many really good scams are out there now. Its only two payments of $60 but I have never been scammed online before and I really hope others dont also. If I were the original company that this scam copied to steal my information I would be pretty upset to and would get them shut down. Please dont make the mistake I did, I dont even know if business credit is real but all I know is so far I was totally scammed for nothing. All this site said to do was buy from places Reliable office supplies and they declined me what a joke. If there are any others out there that have really built business credit and know of a real company please let me know. I know what site these scammers copied but now I am a little hesitant to join any service. This wasted SO much of my time and Im not a little old lady Im a real web engineer and fell for a fraudulent scam to get my credit card. It just goes to show that criminals get smarter all the time.

Business Builders Enterprises *TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY SCAM*

AUTHOR: Cookie - (United States of America)

One year and $600 to business builders and $300 buying form vendors and I have nothing! When I call they just try to sell me more nonsense and they are total babbling idiots, every one of them. I read online and appreciate that Mark the attorney got sick and tired of this scam also and hopefully he will do something so scam artists like these people dont keep taking money from people like me. I just want all my money back, this was the biggest waste of time I have ever done. I have never posted anything bad online before but trust me these people are complete idiots and I wasted all my money.

These scammers obviously put the post above on themselves because they never got me $20 in real credit much les $100k what an outright LIE. Definitely a SCAM

BEWARE!

5 Reasons I was SCAMMED outright by this Business Builder

AUTHOR: Mark, Esq. - (United States of America)

5 Reasons I was SCAMMED outright by this Business Builder Enterprises and Extreme Business Credit Makeover Program.

I own a very small firm with myself and one other attorney and didnt want to spend time building business credit for my law firm and corporation; you would think that after all of my education I would have done at least a little more due diligence. I can report to you that after wasting 9 months, several thousand dollars on products I absolutely dont need, and countless valuable hours my firms corporation had its business credit ruined by this SCAM Extreme Business Credit Makeover Program.

I would like this scam shut down permanently and will follow several other means to do so. I have done a lot of research on
this and now do have good business credit after undoing this bologna and doing it myself. I would like to give you 5 reasons you should not only get your money back that these criminals have stolen from you with nonsense and lies, but additionally procure every single dime on any and all purchases you made from these vendors as I have. I paid the $399 up front and made about $1250 worth of worthless purchases only to have my firms files flagged by DNB and my Experian Business Scores ruined. All of this money you, if you have done the same, I will instruct on how to get back in addition to helping me shut this scam down.

1.     

When I do some due diligence on a company I take into account mainly what others say about the company and any testimonials. There were several hundred of these with a 5 star rating and although I thought it suspicious that they were all so short and very indirect, I thought that no company could have actually faked hundreds and hundreds of them. Upon looking into it further, of course after several months of wasted money and time, I became suspicious. The ratings this company gives itself are flat out lies and fake. You can see for yourself if you read them, things like Excellent
Phone Company!! I have since found out these are very easy to fake and pay for and trick the system by using companies based in India. On further investigation not one of the 895 testimonials as of this writing could I find that were real,
but rather either fake or a ploy during the sign up process I presume. I would never give a company a 5 star rating if I had no idea if they deserved it. Needless to say I do a LOT more looking at testimonials now. SO thats 1, hundreds of fake testimonials, it is why and how I was conned into this.

2.     

Pitney Bowes, Key Bank, Home Depot MasterCard, and all of the supposed No PG credit grantors do not exist. The Pitney Bowes part was the most frustrating part; they do not offer any credit card anymore whatsoever and have not for over 5 years. It was a TOTAL waste of time and money with this stupid machine in my office for all of those months.

3.     

I found online that this site was actually a copy of another site by a marketing company that specialized in online branding
and reputation. So here was the key to it all, thats how this basic e-book was able to get me to shell out $400 and waste 9 months and another $1200 for things I did not need. They were experts at taking anything and no matter how
shady and making it look real. Upon further investigation I actually did find this company they copied (I in no way represent or recommend them these are just facts) and did find the proof in black and white; that yes they had indeed downloaded their site in 2008 along with their member site. This marketing scam created Creditmakeover.biz and actually knew nothing whatsoever about building business credit and was a marketing scam company that even stole their content.

The company they stole their content from went on to tell me that the information was so hideously outdated, aforementioned cards, and just about everything else about this makeover program was now useless and has been since 2008.

4.     

Business Builder Enterprises is a scam period. It does not work more than anything but a gas card. No matter how you look at it if you are reading this and you have joined this program your heart rate is up now because you know as well as I do that you have wasted a TON of money and time on this and it got and/or will get nowhere. Just pure and simple its a scam
that you and I bought into.  There is not a single REAL client I am convinced that after 6-12 months would say ANYTHING
otherwise. These guys even put fake testimonials on these ROR threads. I am calling them out point blank. As a purchaser of this product or program and as an attorney my personal opinion is that without any question whatsoever Extreme
Business Credit Makeover and Business Builder Enterprises has thousands of very, very angry people with a Pitney Bowes machine and no business credit cards. Thats right I challenge that not even one single Visa or MasterCard or anything
more than these Uline accounts, we have all wasted hundreds of thousands on.

5.     

Lastly, the second I said this was a scam to them, that there were no aforementioned NO-Personal Guarantee credit cards, that I had spoken with the company they had copied their site from, that it was outdated and irrelevant, that they were just a marketing company that sold an old e-book they IMMIEDIATLY not only offered to give me my money back I paid
them BUT ALL of my vendor purchases equaling the $1200. Trust me I really do not care about that, what I do care about is that my Experian Business Credit was ruined with inquiries, and I had to pay my CPA $7500 to submit the proper
financials and almost file a lawsuit with DNB to take me out of being red flagged as a frivolous credit builder because I followed the advise of this scam.

The bottom line is this; if you joined Business Builder Enterprises Scam get your money back ASAP exactly as I have, how? Post here and let them know you will do it again, just like Mark did and trust me you will get every dime back, but do it now. It is my sincere goal as a class action specialist and attorney, as I have spent my entire life taking down scams and entities
that hurt and kill people, that this can be done without litigation and the old fashion way. Simply get the word out... Extreme Business Credit Makeover, Business Builder Enterprises, and Creditmakeover.biz is a SCAM and a Rip-Off and each
and every testimonial is a fraud and simply not real.  Lastly I am still completely confused as to how this scam got an A+ BBB but knowing this is a marketing company that specializes in online reputation and fake con programs like this; I suspect they did something very shady there also. Either way I will look a lot deeper than the BBB (And their fake testimonials!) next time (maybe they are not to blame, BBB that is, as they cant know of every scam that is out there.

Business Builder Enterprises and The Extreme Business Makeover Program is a SCAM! They cost me Thousands and need to be shut down before they SCAM anyone else!

Tell them Mark said they were a scam and if they dont like my personal opinion here and elsewhere and yours they can sue meJ I would love to get paid to shut them down after wasting my time and money. Get your money back you ASAP, I suspect there are thousands of us out there, dont feel dumb get even. You dont have a Visa/MC Credit card for your business because they dont exist so shut this SCAM DOWN with me.

Business Builder Enterprises, Inc.s Rebuttal to False, Libelous Claims

AUTHOR: Business Builder Enterprises, Inc. - (United States of America)

Dear Reader:

    I am a representative of Business Builder Enterprises, Inc., an active corporation in good standing, organized and existing in California since 2003.  We offer valuable services and have many satisfied clients.  We are most certainly a real business.

    All of the highly defamatory claims of Clancy Morgan, including that we are a scam, and a  phishing fraud, are wholly false.  Clancy Morgan was never a client of Business Builder Enterprises, and in fact, is not even a real person.

    Business Builder Enterprises was recently a victim of libel by a competitor who was defaming us in forums such as this, and elsewhere, with blatantly false accusations about our company.  We filed a lawsuit against that competitor, and were able to resolve our issues with them in a confidential settlement, and both parties have gone on with their respective businesses in peace.

    The truth is that we deliver an excellent service.  We have an excellent rating with the Better Business Bureau.  We do not rip people off.  It is both illegal and bad for business. We do allow people 30 days of using the program before we run the first payment.  We have thousands of satisfied customers.  If you are a potential customer, we look forward to helping you, too.  Please feel free to call us at 800-508-6148 and press 1 for Sales.
