I was contacted by this company to do work from home on the internet.  I paid $259.00 via AMEX to get into the program.  On 7/19 Bob Scott called and said he could set up a website to advertise my pharmacy for $4900 (which I did).  He guaranteed 100,000 visitors the first year.  I discovered later that his program was fixed to automatically put in 274 visitors per day. 

When I told him I thought the program was fixed, he said he would put the website on facebook, twitter and utube for another $5000.  I did that, then he called to set me up a corporation so I wouldn't have to pay so much tax on all the money I was going to make.  That costs $2300.  The entire scam cost me $12,459.00.  I want this company shut down, but would also love to get my money back.  Thank you.

You Missed The BIG RED FLAG

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

Sorry about your loss but a simple tactic would have saved your money. Do a reverse lookup (Google search) on the street address, minus the 'Suite ####'. It will show you it is the address of a UPS Store. The scammers used a rented mailbox as their company address.

This is such a common ploy. Always verify the company has a REAL street address and not a rented mailbox or 'virtual office'. Cancel the charges with Amex. The scammers will have to reveal their real names and locations to fight the reversal. They won't.
