Complaint Review: The Women's Information Network - Saratoga Select State/Province
The Women's Information Network The WIN Paula Fellingham The Women's Information Network (The WIN) manipulates, misrepresents, and scams employees and investors Saratoga Springs Utah
Paula Fellingham, CEO and founder of The Women's Information Network ("The WIN") represented her company as haviing a mission: to elevate the women of the world through several different programs designed to improve women physically, financially, spiritually, etc. The programs would include humanitarian projects in third world countries. I joined dozens and perhaps hundreds of other women in buying a membership and promoting The WIN and its programs, which were to include hundreds of teleseminars every week in seven different areas of personal and financial development.
Paula continually promised that investors were lining up to invest in The WIN, that funds would be arriving shortly to pay employees who had put in hundreds and even thousand of hours building and promiting the company, including outside vendors. She boasted of having put on hundreds of global women summits involving hundreds of thousands of attendees, and committed to putting on 175 future summits in the next year. She claimed the company website was receiving a million unique visitors.
The truth was far less than the claims. There were no investors except a handful of people she persuaded to purchase "stock" in her worthless company. Most of them have joined a lawsuit against Paula, along with many employees who were never paid, and vendors who were not paid. She attended some global womens summits where she talked about her own programs and books and touted The WIN. These were attended by at most 50-100 women - not hundreds of thousands. The hits on The WIN website turned out to be fake - she had hired a company to artificially create the hits. I understand she has not paid them either.
What little money came into The WIN through membership and program sales was used by Paula to travel to other parts of the world to tout her own programs and books, or to solicit "investors" with promises of future remuneration. This included several expensive trips to Las Vegas, California, India, and other countries. She continues to "hire" (but not pay) new vendors and employees to replace those who have quit in disgust and/or frustration. Her allegedly new and improved website is the "Paula Fellingham Show," full of photos and videos of Paula - many of them years old.
In short, The WIN dream has turned into a nightmare for many, many people who placed their trust and their time and money with a woman who used them to promote only herself. I strongly urge people to avoid this company.
