The Seminar Solution, LLC 123Employee.com Daven Michaels Totally Deceptive Webinars By Daven Michaels $6000.00 To Build Business Scam Rancho Cucamonga California

I contacted 123 Employee for outsourcing building an online business that I had been working on and after watching a webinar promoting all of the benefits of having a Virtual Assistant who would work for me at a very low hourly cost from the Philipines that had been trained to do the type of work I needed help with and spoke and wrote English.

What I received for my first $3000.00 payment turned out to be a 12 week webinar course of which I listened to two webinars and each one ended up promoting a Good Friend of Daven's $1000.00 Super Promo Product which would make me more money than I could ever dream of! Another $1000.00 each...

I called the phone number I was given supposedly for 123 Employee but from the area code is located in Tampa, FL. The saleswoman who told me what I had purchased was the 12 seminars and the Press Release program.

I informed the saleswoman I was disabled and did not have 12 weeks at an extra $1000.00 each time to buy these additional products and was told I needed to join the Tribe Building Program where I was sent a very well built webinar which promised to completely build a business webpage with content, marketing, press releases, content rich Facebook page with engaging content leading to a customer funnel basically a working business in a box which would be worth the $6000.00 I paid the Parent company Seminar Solutions, LLC. who I never new existed until I received a receipt which I  insisted on receiving after multiple attempts.

I waited 2 1/2 months and many emails and phone calls to get started on my business I received a Template with my chosen business name as the header and several ordinary sub headers all with content in a foreign language or alien I am not sure.

123 Employee (The Seminar Solution) then told me I had to write all of the content, provide high resolution pictures,obtain a Domain name from their vendor, acquire 3 years of hosting and I also started a Limited Liability Company to DBA my company through.

I then calle and told them their work was unacceptable and $6000.00 was entirely too much money for a website template and wanted my money refunded and was told they had done so much work for me creating this template and the time for talking to me about what I wanted that I would not get any money back.

AUTHOR: DoyleW - ()

Daven Michaels can twist the truth around better than most Politicians! Watch this propoganda and see if you think he is offering a lot of help building a business: 123Employee.com Tribe Building Webinar. I can not provide link for legal reasons, but you can go there to see it.

Now I am broke confused and do not know where to turn for help. Disgusted!
