Advanced Media Group, LLC The Advanced Media Group ADVANCED MEDIA GROUP SCAMMING PEOPLE FOR YEARS!!!!! Phoenix, Arizona
As I have read some of the latest comments and complaints about Advanced Media Group LLC, I must first say that I apologize to some of the people who have posted reports within the past few years. I wish I had come forward sooner and posted a ripoff report which may have prevented others from becoming a victim of this scam company. I am confident that there are probably hundreds, if not thousands of individuals who have probably been scammed by Advanced Media Group.While my report will be dated February 2012, I had an incident of being ripped off by Advanced Media Group that dates back to September 2008. From the reading of other posts, it is the classic call you receive from someone at Advanced Media Group wanting to sell you your own website for $98.95. The website was selling satellite dish system packages which were becoming very popular in 2008 as an alternative to high priced cable packages. I I told the guy the first time he called me on my cell phone that it was not a good time to talk. I was at work, but on break at the time. A few days later, the same guy called back and left his name and cell phone number on my voicemail. About a week later, I heard from the same guy leaving another voicemail on my cell phone about his offer to set me up with my very own website for just $98.95 and nothing else to buy. The very next day, the same guy called my cell phone during evening hours when I was usually at home after work. The guy and I finally got a chance to talk as he explained that for every sale of having someone purchase a satellite dish system package from my website, I would receive $50.00. Two sales would pay for the cost of the website. As a skilled salesperson apparently, he knew exactly how to make the offer of my very own website the greatest thing since the dot.com explosion in the late 1990s. While we were talking, the guy had asked for my email address so he could send me more promotional offers to consider in the future. He stated that Advanced Media Group offered the best in advertising for any campaign ranging from 100 to 10 million guaranteed visitors. The sky was the limit. I told the guy thank you for setting up my website and if I needed any more assistance, I would contact him or another representative from Advanced Media Group. A few months passed and it was in January 2009 when I received a call from Advanced Media Group. This time it was a different representative. This new guy was just following up with me about my website. He wanted to know if I had made any sales and was I pleased with the website. I told the guy I had not been able to spend a lot of time with the website due to my working schedule. The sales pitch started. The guy explained about promotional campaigns that Advanced Media Group had to offer. While during this phone conversation, the guy had placed me on hold for a few seconds, when he returned to the phone, he had what I guess was a co-worker, a woman apparently, joining us on the phone call. They both sounded very professional as they explained about promoting my website. The two of them ganged up on me. They said that for $2400.00, they had a campaign that would guarantee me 10,000 visitors to my website within a year. They also said that my website address would be advertised with 2000 search engines. In addition, they said that I would be able to get with them about having a 20 word ad promoting my website placed in three newspapers of my choice. The ad was to run in the newspapers for 6 weeks. At this point, I fell for this scam. After receiving my money, the tone on the phone changed. One problem was that when I got ready to have the ad placed in three newspapers, a different person from Advanced Media Group told me that someone made a mistake in telling me I got to choose the newspapers where the ads are to run. They stated that they are in charge of making sure the ad will run in the newspapers in which they have a business relationship. I asked where is the ad going run and what are the names of the three different newspaper companies. They sent me an email with the information stating the ad will run in three newspapers in the state of North Dakota. I live on East Coast. How was I able to verify that?Just like everyone whom I read their posts, I did not make one sale from my website. I know this letter is rather lengthy, but I just want people from this point not to trust Advanced Media Group. My experience dates back to 2008 and they are not going to change. They are scam artists. I hope with enough people posting and coming forward that perhaps a class action lawsuit can be filed against these crooks. Hopefully with enough people speaking out, the news media will put the spotlight on Advanced Media Group!!!!!
