My husband and I attended a "seminar" for Anthony Morrison's conference training program "Secrets of a Self-Made Internet Millionaire.  His advertisement was misleading.  Free dinner, get in 30 minutes early, will start at 6:00 p.m., Free tablet computer to the first 50 to call give me a brake, relaxed and informative 90 minute conference that will change your financial outlook forever.  Plus!!!! I'll give you the top 10 companies plus the 6 products that help keep me rich.  All you have to do is attend my FREE conference coming to your area." I brought two extra people with us for the $20.00 fee . They did not give me a cent. i was  p***ed off.

We attended, and found that none of the above was provided.  We had to stand in a area for almost 30 minutes past the time they said we would be seated.  The event didn't start at 6:00 p.m. It was neither informative, fun, or relaxed.  We had a cold sandwich, chips and water at the Marriott no less.  The presenter was very rude !  And, when asked about the 50 tablet computers he said yes that 50 of us would receive them, but that we had to call the number we had previously called to register for the "conference" to receive a list of winners.  Also the time was definitely not 90 minutes, it drug on for over 2 hours.

After we told one of the "salesmen" that we weren't interested in paying them $3000.00 immediately to attend a 3 day class, we were treated like the plege and were not allowed to ask any questions, it was as if we were invisible to any of them. We really didn't think this was a "for real" opportunity, and once we arrived and were able to see the employees, who didn't appear to be "self-made millionaires" just by their appearance, we knew this was just another steal your money scheme.

Definitely the advertising was deceitful, and misleading.  I really felt sorry for a few of the people, that we could see,  looking for a way out of their troubles.  They were being lead down a path that was going to cost them money they didn't have, and then end no closer to a solution to their money worries.  All of this dishonesty, and then a pitiful meal to go along with it. 

I was able to see immediately that these "employees" wouldn't be in this line of work, if his plan really worked.  They would be millionaires, having fun, traveling, not trying to sell a lame program to people who were trusting them to provide a way out of their struggles.  How mean, and cruel is that Mr. Morrison for preying on defenseless, struggling people especially in this time of financial ruin for many!!!

Huge Ripoff..Avoid Anthony Morrison at ALL costs!

AUTHOR: GaleStewart - (United States of America)

I relate to what you're saying. I, unfortunately, did buy into all the BS Anthony Morrison was spouting off. I was instructed that when I attended the "workshop" that I would be given the tools and information to have a successful business. I paid the initial fee of ($4500), which was hard to come by as it is as a single mother. However, I had a feeling of...okay, now I'm on my way. I think I even started to hum the theme song from The Jeffersons "Moving on up" :)

Shortly after that initial fee I started to get bombarded with calls from them wanting more and more money. Saying I NEEDED money for all these services in order for me to have a successful business. Everything from Web Development to payroll to bookkeeping. I did not need many of these services as its just me. However again, I paid the money. After each time a different company name was on my credit card statement. Never the same one twice. Why did they charge me under different names? A legitimate company, one that provides the services that it claims to, charges under the same name. For all I know Billy Joe Bob in Tumbleweed, Arkansas is getting my money. Ive called them on numerous occasions and every time getting a different answer. I have been told that Anthony Morrison or Adrian Morrison would contact me and I have yet to hear from him. Im starting to think they dont even exist. Who does business like this? 
You're very fortunate on having not fell into Anthony Morrison's trap. I wish I would've NEVER done it. I mean...
($17,400) later, I am now on food stamps, facing a potential bankruptcy and God knows what else all because I trusted these people and they didnt hold true to their word. Online Strategies, whatever they want to call themselves, hasnt done anything but take food from my childrens mouths. I cant feed them with empty promises! The worst business decision I have ever made was to get into bed with these crooks. I was struggling then and now Im worse!! Ive had to change my number several times because creditors keep calling for money and thanks to PMI, I CANT PAY THEM! I thought the feeling of being ripped off from Anthony Morrison was bad. Try having to send your children to school with clothes too small because you did not have the money to buy them new school clothes. Or the pressure of making the little bit of money I get from food stamps stretch all month so my kids dont go hungry. This is no way to live. I mean I wanted to start a business so I would not have the worries and stressors of making ends meet. 

I had to contact an attorney on the steps that I needed to take in order to get my money reimbursed and he referred me to another law firm that better deals with companies like PMI, whose sole purpose seems to be to bankrupt unsuspecting people like myself. I spoke with Richard at 302-300-3757. He was really helpful and considerate of my situation, which is a lot more than I received from the consultants at PMI. I did not have to pay anything upfront like PMI or Online
Strategies, which gave me peace of mind. I could not afford to get ripped off again. I was required to follow up with him a lot more than I had hoped for but all and all, it has been a success. I got my money and Im just going to do the steps of opening my business the BEST wayand thats WITHOUT Anthony Morrisons help or the help of PMIWHOOPS! Online Strategies. Whatever THEY want to call themselves, Im just going to stick to calling them SCAM ARTISTS!!!

So, to sum up everything...

Feeling like you cant provide for
your childrenCHECK

After speaking to Richard, I got
something a lot more valuable than I thought I wouldSatisfaction!!

Getting my money back and sticking it to Anthony Morrison .PRICELESS!
