MY ONLINE FRAUD STORY- Part Two

The Course

What I discovered that instead of a high quality content course this company offered:

  • Very sketchy video material some of which was out of date
  • A support line staffed with students with questionable knowledge
  • Conflicting advice and no continuity
  • An expensive monthly hosting and site building program
  • The support line had no knowledge of the technical side
  • A locked in supply system with a monthly charge
  • Phone support such as it was ended and the email support gave completely different directions. This necessitated me spending more money to have my header redesigned.
  • The inability for the web host to accommodate more than a limited number of merchant accounts that could clear credit cards.
  • The inability for the site builder to pull the images from the supplier on to the site in the correct size.
  • Constant phone calls from SEO companies telling the site was all wrong and wanting to sell me expensive SEO services. This was extremely strange as I have several other sites and never get calls about them.

I took me far too long to realize that the whole thing was a fraud. All of the knowledge that was being offered can be found on the Internet for free. The web site building program could be had for a one time charge at less than the monthly plan or possibly for free and the hosting could also be found for less. At the time I was approached I did not have enough knowledge to ask the right questions. I was so anxious to find a comprehensive source from which to learn that I was blind to what was being offered and how it was being offered.

If you are approached be cautious. Don’t let anyone talk you into giving your financial information. Don’t let anyone talk you into signing a contract without researching them. If they are truly legitimate the offer will stand until you have checked them out. Be careful at giving out your phone number.
