Was solicited by mail as I was a member of the Natural Cures which I think is really good quality information an in addition I read Kevin Trudeaus other books and those were also good information.  I received a mail regarding the Your Wish is Your Command CDROM which was sold as quality information and I did get good information from that CD too.  After that came the mail for the "Global Information Network" which they sold as information content from all over the world not available anywhere else in categories such as: Loans/Credit/Financing, Save Money, Health etc. They took payment of $1000 and $150 per month for membership fees, only problem was there was no information. 

It took months after the first payment to even get a login and once logged in there was no content in any of the categories they said the website would contain. Each month I asked for a full refund was told the information was coming, eight months later and so far I have spent $2049 and received nothing to show for it. [continued below]....
.....  The company said there is no refund and it is illegal to take payment and say there is no refund for a product you knew did not exist and that was "under construction"  or "coming in the next few months" consumers are not the bank. I have tried to get the the money back without luck and so far I have nothing to show for what I paid so the government need to step in and put a stop to this as this is the early stages ... more horror stories may be coming soon.

Here is the Proof Global Information Network is a fraud

AUTHOR: tiredofit - (United States of America)

I signed up in August 2009, and January 2010 note closely the date on the bottom when printed this is what the site said and I paid for information, still this matter will be going to court. If I had received what I paid for I doubt I would be complaining!

AUTHOR: T. ONeal - (United States of America)

I am a member of the Global Information Network & can tell you that it is one of the best membership club & money making opportunity of all time. The membership fee & monthly dues are nothing compared to the benefits you get as a member.

I became a member in November of 2009 & immediately received my login info which gave me immediate access to all the information on the website. The information available on the website if phenomenal. Audio, video & written information available in a wide range of topics. In addition to the above we also have live seminars all over the world for free as a member. The seminar speakers are some of the best in the world such as Ron Ball, Mary Miller, Dr Coldwell & Kevin Trudeau, just to name a few. If you are unable to attend the live seminars they are recorded & available for you on the website.

I can name just a small sample of the type of information available on the website: Multiple sources for personal development, ways to make money, business & mental skills. In addition, you also have access to the Oxford University Library resources.

As a member, you also have a lifetime membership in Natural Cures which is worth over $2,000.

The combined information found on the Global Information Network website will motivate you for success by helping you create the life you want.

You can also participate in the Global Information Network Affiliate Program. The Affiliate Program can provide you a lifelong income stream of hundreds & even thousands of dollars a month.

The person writing the complaint states, "it is illegal to take payment for a product you knew did not exist". This is absolutely a false statement because the information available does exist.

And you can cancel your membership at any time. 

The person writing the complaint also states, "so far have nothing to show for what I paid" then it is his own fault for not taking advantage of everything membership offers. I have benefited greatly both personally & financially with the information available from the Global Information Network. In addition to myself, there are hundreds of other people associated with this organization that are benefiting too.

As with anything, some people just use the "poke it with a stick method" and immediately say it's a scam. In my opinion the Global Information Network will be a household name in a short time with nothing but words of praise for this organization and their members.

The only "horror stories" would be someone having been fortunate enough to have been a member of this fine organization & not have the capacity to understand the immense usefulness of all the resources/benefits available to them as a member.

Again, I would like to point out that I have mentioned only the tip of the iceberg of all the information available to you as a member of the Global Information Network.
