Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I purchased an ebay exposed "online business" promising I would make thousands for only $29. Soon after I was contacted by a slick salesman who told me they were looking for a few people to make successful and work with one on one.

They promised me I would make $100,000 off my $8500 dollar investment into their program. All lies! The first interview I had, supposedly a screening process to see if I qualified was only to find out how much I had available on my credit card. WARNING: if they ask about your credit situation, they only want to know how much they can scam you for. I was promised a coach to walk me step by step but never happend.

I-works is a fraudulent company, beware of their tactics. The company is owned by a fraudulent individual named Jeremy Johnson. Just type in "Jeremy Johnson Fraud" in google, and you will see what I mean. He already has a much tarnished record! If you have been scammed by them, please report it. We need to form an alliance and put these online rip-offs to an end.

So Tired Of This Crap

AUTHOR: ExposeTheFraud - (United States of America)

I am so tired of consumers getting ripped off by these "Internet Marketers" that pose as guru's! They are 100% con artists that use the slumping economy to dig into the pockets of everyone! Typically I try to express my knowledge without emotion but the Argall brothers are a bunch of pu**ies.  All these guys are legitimate pussies that hide behind the Internet.  "The syndicate" group is a pure example of this, which is comprised of the most NOTORIIUS fraudsters, that include but are not limited to Kyle Kimora, Michael Filsaime, Frank Kern, Andy Jenkins, Anthony Morrison, Jeremy Johnson and John Paul Raygoza!! They ALL violate the RICO statute and conspire to defraud consumers out of hundreds of millions of dollars!  They have thousands of people who act as affiliates for them that endorse their bogus products and will leave comments on forums that oppose anyone who tries to exploit their HIGHLY illegal and unethical tactics to scam consumers. These fraudsters try to control the Internet through thousands of websites and all sell products, including but not limited to "Work from Home", "E-bay online biz", Debt Settlement Products etc.  Consumers need to be more aware of this and think about this:  Do you ever see big companies like Coca Cola tell consumers exactly how to make Coke???  Why would anyone who is successful tell the public their "secrets"?  They wouldn't!!!  Stop buying into this Biz Op crap!!!  
Think this is a pile of crap???

See below conversations that were recorded!! Even "legit" guys like Tony Robbins are included in this scam!!

Urindanger is also, in fact, an idiot.

AUTHOR: Eventide - (United States of America)

In reply to Urindanger:
Yes, Transiac (until if folded months ago) was in fact located at Tabernacle Towers.  As were, at last count, twelve other businesses. So apparently, all of THEM are just "iWorks shells" too, right? Funny how you put so much time into stalking the people who tried (unsuccessfully) to make Transiac work, but couldn't even be bothered to spend ten seconds to actually verify your claims.  But I guess that's not as fun as just blindly attacking people and trying to ruin their lives.

The problem with people like you is the damage you do to the reputations of normal people.  You hide behind the Screen Names on the Internet, spouting attacks and lies on other human beings, because you don't have the courage to do it to their faces.  My guess is that you ARE "Chopper Ryan", and that you're an ex-employee of iWorks yourself.  But instead of just moving on, you're here posting lies and deceit in an attempt to make your own life mean something by destroying and slandering others. Right Sarah?  (Oh, gee, was I supposed to pretend I didn't know it's you that's posting all this nonsense?)

I think it's interesting that you repeatedly came into the Transiac offices, pretending to be buddy-buddy with everyone, KNOWING that Transiac had nothing to do with iWorks, for no other reason than so you could go online and post your ridiculous lies.  Lies you KNOW are lies.  Even when you worked at iWorks you were nothing but a bitter, angry person who did nothing but backbite and gossip.

So assuming you are correct and this Ryan character has a vendetta against a company that stole over 275m. Lets just assume you are correct.

So Transiac has no affiliation with iworks?

In fact a quick Google search will show you that transiac is located in the exact same address as iworks is/was located?

I will show you a example:

iworks + 60+ shell companies
249 E Tabernacle St
St George,
UT 84770-2978

Moving forward and assuming you are still correct. Assuming that by some wild coincidence that your office of the 5 volunteers that havent received a dime for your banking software isnt related to iworks, Jeremy Johnson ext, how on earth do you explain the correlation between the two?

It even shows in another Google search that Kyle Maxwell, one of the great con men behind the iWorks enterprise showcasing his art of ripoff on his site.

Grant A Day?  Make money with GOOGLE?  Fortune compass? Hot Internet deals? Big savings united? CPA upsell?

All of which are directly linked to the FTCs complaint for scamming millions and millions. What a portfolio to show case!  * FTC

 An internet search according to Forbes longest prison sentencing does show Kyle Kimoto is still in jail.  Looks like that poster didnt get that right, however look at the overwhelming facts of whom you are and whom you are doing business with. It is interesting that you mentioned, Havent received a dime. This notion is put in place only because you have had recent interaction with the FTC and the reporting you are providing them on transiac.  You cant make a dime from a Jeremy Johnson company.  

Oh, I forgot about craigslist. Cant you just click on a little button called flag, that removes any post almost immediately?  Did you really contact them and than they removed the wild posts?

You have to give it to C.Ryan for nailing the 5 people that run transiac. So He/She was wrong on one name? Whos to say he isnt still working with you?

#4 UPDATE Employee

"Chopper Ryan" is, in fact, and idiot.

AUTHOR: Mavent - (United States of America)

I have no idea who "Chopper Ryan" is, or why he/she/it is pursuing his insane vendetta against iWorks, but I do know this: Transiac has nothing to do with iWorks, Jeremy Johnson, or any of the other people mentioned.  In fact, a quick Google search shows that at least one of the people that "Chopper Ryan" claims is involved with Transiac is in prison in a completely different State.

Transiac is a small start-up venture that hopes to provide software solutions for the banking industry.  It has no actual employees.  We're basically five people who are devoting our time to trying to build something that we hope might one day turn in to a profitable business venture.  To date, neither I nor any of the other people who have been volunteering their efforts to building Transiac have received a single dime in payment.  Thus, it rather bothers me to see some uninformed half-wit trying to drag us in to his one-moron crusade against a completely different company.

BTW, "Chopper Ryan" has been posting the exact same lies to every message board that will allow him to do so.  The funny thing is, even the local Craigs List banned him and removed his posts, after I contacted them and explained what the guy was doing.  The only place on the Internet that still allows his easily disprovable libel to remain is the Ripoff Report.  It's a fairly sad statement on the quality of this site that they allow such blatant lies to remain uncontested, when even the "rants" board on Craigs List won't permit them to remain.

Youll Never belive this mess! ..Utah is the Internet fraud capital of the world there are so many s-bag companies in this state it baffles the mind.

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

My name is Kent from Sandy Utah
I am Completely convinced Utah is the Internet fraud capital of the world there are so many scumbag companies in this state it baffles the mind.I am the Webmaster of a Utah Scam Board and try to share all I can with the you will see my replies to many Utah posts on this site as well as investigation work ( Done For My own Site) when I see a new Utah company listed I immediately kick in to gear and try to find all the dirt I can. When a post turns out to be crap I almost feel cheated. such was the case concerning Iworks I neither support or condemn this company but the out come was so unbelievable it belongs in the Tupperware New York Section, so at the time I decided not to reply.

I called Iworks Posing as a client concerning Ebay Exposed. And unfortunately they were to open about the deal and explained how much money was involved for different levels and that the return would depend on how much time and effort I put forth it seemed they were a little to anxious to get me to sign up but that's the life of sales. I confirmed the owner of Iworks to be Jeremy Johnson and informed them I would get back to them. Next on to Google search there are 75 pages concerning JOHNSON , Jeremy & Fraud However I did Find the Information I was looking for however it was very brief so I was forced to dive into Newspaper Archives to get the rest of the story The Case Was concerning a company Named a company who researches stock rumors, however Jeremy Johnson was not the owner he was an employee the owner fled to the UK and his partner Committed suicide! Leaving Jeremy Johnson Holding the bag.

Thanks to the SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION He Is now under the Spot light of the fedral Goverment.

At this point I called Mr johnson, and explained who I was and what I was doing and he agreed to talk with me! Thanks to the writer of the original post he must have thought I was a complete idiot and to say more I felt like one as it knocked the cockiness out of me seeing how, the only sale they had in Missouri was in in Branson and to no one named Barry. During our conversation I discover Mr johnson was a returned LDS Missionary who had served in a state I once lived in this put us on some common ground and I later discoverd He was the boy scout leader of his church group.

(Are you begining to see Why I didnt Want to reply to the post!) It sounds to made up and to much like a company shrill. But it gets better Mr Johnson Has a branch office in Provo Utah right next to a real scumbag company, Treehouse Marketing AKA Thompson & Turley. At the time of the original post Mr turKey Was Threating to sue Mr Johnson for hiring people who used to work for Treehouse Marketing, (obviously some who still had morals). As we all know mr turley is very familiar with the Now im not saying mr turley or one of his employees posted this but. Coinsidence I dont know but it does smell fishy however Barry from Ladue missiouri,
Mr Johnson Assured me if you contact him he will refund your money however they dont know who or where you really are and if and when they do refund money to you donate some to the This took a lot of leg work and phone calls. no decent company whats bad press And Mr johnson Ashured me once again he would make this right!

*sigh* ..First, if you think you are going to make thousands off of a $29 package you are insane!

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

Second, NOTHING is ever promised... The phone calls made from within IWorks and the phone calls made to IWorks are MONITORED AND RECORDED. That means that the FTC is watching IWorks regularly, and it is ILLEGAL to promise any type of income. If someone said the word "Promise" or even included an exact figure such as "100k", that person would immediately be fired and never re-hired.

Third, you also use the word scam simply because you didn't do what it takes to make that business that you purchased, a successful one. There are MANY people that have been successful with the business they purchased through IWorks, so before you come here to whine about how you didn't make money, perhaps you should have some legitimate reasons....
