North Point Web Mall Fraud, Scam, Total Rip Off. Internet, Phoenix Arizona
I first got a call from someone called Dean Carlson from "North Point Web Mall" who said I could earn extra money from the web. They would set up a web site for me for $99.00 and I would get a mentor to help get things started and explain how things worked. I said I didn't have anything to sell, but that was ok, they would take care of that for me, all would be explained. I could get my money back if I wasn't happly, if it wasn't working out, after 30 days. At any rate, I would get the $99 back once I made $2500 from my web site. The transaction was handled by Ammie.
The next call several days later was from Stacey who was an account specialist who asked me several questions about my income.
Then Steve Turner called on April 25, 2013 and we talked for over an hour. He even told me how to get to my very own web site. Several companies all doing on-line business were listed...i.e. Macy's, Amazon.com, Babys R Us, etc. Once he had me reeled in, he offered three different options. For $5K he would gaurantee 30,000 targeted visitors to my site and I would get $1397.13 per month in return; for $10K, there would be 60,000 targeted visitors and $2789.67 per month return; for $15K there would be 90,000 targeted visitors and $4895.12 return per month. No mention of what that percentage represented. I bit. I said I'd go with $5K. He then tried to talk me into the next level. After talking to his "supervisor" he came back with an offer of $7,500 for the 60,000 targeted visitors. So, there I was. Thinking I was joinging the bit business with a little return. Steve told me I was his 80th account. Again Ammie handled the transaction.
Some days later I received 4 chashiers checks totaling $514. As soon as I got those checks I got a call from Greg Samuels. He tried to sell me something more. I could enter a new program forBusiness Referrals and be over a section of agents. Option one for $99.00; Option two $299.00; Option three $499. I would receive 25 % from each agent to each sales they made. According to Greg, the agents made many many sales per month. I told him I wasn't interested. That is when he said that this money would be in addition to the 30% I "now make for every sale from the web." Finally I got smart. There was no way these companies were going to give me 30% of anything.
Upon further investigation I found that my web site indeed had links to those businesses but there was no connection to my web site. There was nothing to my web site except that it existed. I called my credit card company right away and reported the fraud. It seems that the credit card company could not get in touch with anyone at North Point Web Mall. I got an answer from a message I left at the "mentor's" phone number when I called and left a message that I knew someone else who might be interested in the company. I told "Greg" that she didn't want to talk to them until she knew what I was receiving next. He said he would have to talk to Accounting. That is all I heard.
The phone numbers they gave me are 1-888-723-4963 for members; 1-855-270-3623 for mentors. I have caller ID on my phone and it showed 1-602-265-1165, someone in Tenn.; 1-602-841-1722, Phonex, Bruce Timsen; 1-602-265-1127, Bertha Ladin, Phonex; 1-602-242-4046, Karen & Robert Bowers, Phonex (this is the number I saw when Steve Turner called). When I tried the various numbers I got no answer. It seems that the business transactions are processed through Panama!!! So who knows where they really are. Stop these people before they change their name.
