Home Income Profit System (Home Income Wealth System)
Reviews – Legit or Scam?

 

The Home Income Profit System (recently renamed The Home Income Wealth System) is a now notorious internet scheme that claims to help you make money from home. Their make money kit is often promoted through the use of fake newspaper articles and other unscrupulous means.

You may have seen “news articles” talking about a Kelly Richards (who incidentally lives in your area) and how much money she made working online. If you look at the article more carefully you’ll see that it’s nothing but a farce, closely resembling what real news sites commonly look like.

It comes as no surprise to me that Home Income Wealth System is almost a direct copy of previous make money online scams called Home Income Profit System, Home Income Black, and BlackBelt Profit System among others. This sort of tactic is often used by experienced online scammers…

When the customer complaints start piling up they simply give it a new name, move some graphics around, and start over fresh.  This process goes on and on while they continue to generate hundreds of thousands of dollars from unsuspecting customers.

If this seems hard to believe just take a look at the two screen shots from BlackBelt Profit Systems and The Home Income Profit System.

Update 09/28/10: The Home Income Profit Kit is now also sold as the “Home Income Wealth System”

Home Income Wealth System

The reason why there’re so many complaints against these types of kits is because the companies running them use very shady billing practices.  They offer the program as a Free Trial, charging you only several dollars for S&H, but as soon as they get your credit card details they quickly hit you with a much larger charge.

Take a look at their terms and conditions:

When you submit your order, you agree to pay the shipping and handling fee of $2.97 for your Road Map to Success; please allow up to two weeks for delivery.   After your 3-day trial period, you will be charged a ONE TIME fee of $139.95 for the product that will not be billed again for access to all of the features above. Thereafter, a $4.95 fee will serve as a monthly website hosting and maintenance fee until canceled.

They say that it can take up to two weeks to receive your materials, yet they charge you after just 3 days!  So basically there’s no chance of you having enough time to review the materials and decide if it’s worth the $139.95 + $4.95 a month. Some people have even reported being charged the $139.95 fee the same day as their order.

The other problem with this type of billing is that many people don’t even read the terms and only find out about the true costs when it’s already too late. In addition, lots of people have reported difficulties reaching customer support in order to cancel the trial or get a refund.

So what do you get with the Home Income Wealth System, and can you really make money using it?

Well what you get is several website templates and instructions telling you to promote products from your website. While some marketers do make money promoting products online, you’ll never succeed with the Home Income Profit/Wealth System and here’s why…

They don’t actually teach you how to do it.  The course materials are purposefully incomplete to make it easier for their telemarketers to up-sell you costly coaching and mentoring programs. Moreover, they don’t tell you upfront that you’ll need to spend money on advertising for your website, a tactic that doesn’t always pay for itself and can lead to losses, especially when you’re just learning internet marketing.

This, coupled with the fact that you’re already out over $140 in unexpected charges can be a real blow to most folks.

If these guys really did have a product that could teach you how to make money online then they wouldn’t have to use deceptive billing and false advertising to get customers.  A high value product would make them enough money on its own merit and they wouldn’t have to keep changing the name, not to mention they might actually generate testimonials instead of complaints.

    I feel sorry for those of you who have fallen for these scams. I really do. You are NOT stupid or gullible. You are just honest people, like me, who NORMALLY would spot an obvious scam right off. But these tricksters have spent a long time honing their methods and know just how to trick honest, hard-working people.

    TWO tricks I have noticed these sites use to immediately grasp our attention, which I will call ‘HOOKS’ –
    (1) You are immediately drawn in by a photo of a nice, young mother who (WOW!) lives in your own hometown, nice smile, nice baby. If she can do it, so can you. She could be your next-door-neighbour. She wouldn’t trick you surely!!

    (2) This amazing offer is available to you for just 1.95 USD but expires…not in a month, 3 weeks…no…TONIGHT…oh, 45 minutes from now. Better fill this form in quick, get those credit card details in fast before you miss out.

    FAKE, FAKE, FAKE.

    I was thankfully never going to buy into these schemes, but I did want to see how they work, and what they do to get people to believe them and give them money. I know someone who was supposed to get paid to be a “secret shopper” and that never came to fruition either. I know desperate times call for desperate measures, and a lot of the times they make these websites and testimonials very convincing. However, the rule of “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Stop and take a second and consider someone who might actually make the money they “guarantee you”, and you will hopefully realize that whatever they have you doing on the computer can’t compare to a nurse (on the lower end making 5-6k), and a dr or possibly a computer programmer (both who can make 15-20k a month). The list goes on. This is 100% buyer beware and if it looks too good to be true it probably is). Hopefully people keep sharing their real stories and word gets out about these websites. My question is, what can we do to make sure these websites are shut down and stop targeting people.

    If the government really wanted to catch these people, they could. They can catch pedophiles and people who hack bank accounts,so why not these crooks? These crooks deserved to be stripped naked and horsewhipped in public.

    Thank you for this story and the screen shots were very enlightening. I was just looking at a site called “Securing Net Income”which displayed all the aforementioned symptoms. There are always 2 rules I encourage everyone to follow. 1: If it’s too good to be true, it probably isn’t. 2: If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. So I did a quick search, found this website and those screen shots of “Blackbelt” and etc. were practical replicas of this “Securing Net Income”. Please keep adding more screenshots whenever you can and I request if you could also add a screen shot of this “Securing Net Income” site too.

    Thanks again.

    Me too. I almost signed up for “SecuringNetIncome”. What a coincidence, this US company website had it’s main photo and testimonial of “Melissa Johnson” living in MY OWN HOMETOWN on the other side of the world. Yeah, right!! Followed by all of these too-good-to-be-true personal success stories. What it doesn’t tell you straight up is that for ONLY 1.95 USD you can start earning straight away – oh but, wait…they will take 39.95 USD out of your account every month. There are no hidden fees and no long-term contracts. There is a phone number you can call to cancel but I wonder how well that works. Thank goodness I read the T&Cs before submitting my credit card details. The domain has only been active for about a month, but the testimonials say these people have been earning from this for longer!! Thanks for the warning.

    Interesting… I just read the information posted here and realized how lucky some of you have actually received some type of info.

    I’ve received absolutely nothing. No info. No active website. No actual contact info…nothing whatsoever.

    Initially, there was a website that could be set up. I imagine it was onlt to get you interested enough to want to actually want to try to make this work, however that lasted approximately 2days. Just long enough to process my credit card for 3 separate payments. $97.00 + $29.97 + $9.97…

    I never received anything in the mail. I received no more information from anyone. I even purchased an upgrade to their program and when the upgrade failed to activate, I submitted a ticked requesting their assistance. Well we all know how well that worked.scam
    Today the website doesn’t even exist anymore. So, with all that said and done, I hope everyone else out there has learned something from this. Learn from those of us who were trusting enough to buy into this program and lose. All we wanted was a way to be able to make some extra money and we paid the price for that trust.

    I hope you also learned something from this as well. I hope you learned that you cannot trust anyone regardless of who they are or what they say. You MUST check out everything and for the most part it’s still probably still a scam.

    They’re smart. They’re good at what they do and if they put this much effort into a legitimate business, they would do amazingly well and that is the scarry part. They are masters at what they do and for those of us who are desperately trying to find a way to make a little extra money the honest way, we are prime targets.

    So, pay attention and learn from our mistakes and maybe, just maybe you can avoid being taken advantage by those who care about no one but themselves.

    Good luck.

    ANYTHING that appears too easy is a scam. Never give out personal information on bank account, social security number or anything that identifies you. It allows people to open credit in your name.

    Paying money as a start up appears to be a scam. Most employment opportunities creates money for the company. WHY, pay a company for you to work? Seeking employment is based on YOU needing money.

    i was surfing the internet when i came across this ad about making money from home and how much you can make part time,it was the lady that lost her job and started making alot of money at home spending time with her kids. it sounded good but when i tried to get on the websight, my security said it was a websight they didnt regonize and wouldnt let me in so i typed in the webpage and a bunch of websights came out including this one,so i clicked on it an read all the reviews, thanks everyone for the heads up, my advice to everyone, research before signing up for anything, if it looks to good to be true it probably is, making that kind of money part time more than a hard working person full time doesn’t sound right, it reminds me of a friend i had in the navy, she signed up to be a mystery shopper, and she did not research, her bank account was empty before she knew it, so my advice to people is please do your home work, there are no get rich quick jobs out there that are legitimate, hope this helps

I’m calling to report them to Attorney General in FL & google as it is a google subscriber.. I’m going to keep researching but even if they were not scammers.. Which clearly they are.. Why the hell would I work for a company that calls me 40x a day… I’m so upset & annoyed.. This company wanted 97.00 that’s when I realized it was a scam & tried to dump the site but they still captured mine & it sounds like alot of you folks information..

    yes I fell for the scam, the “Secure Home Income kit” the internet ad said it was a young mother right from my home town, or so it said she was. My c.c. was charged but I never received the kit, I tried to connect with the company, by phone and internet but kept getting the run around. So I found the site that reported that it was all a scam. I’ve always heard that it sounds to good to be true, it’s not. Believe me I will never fall for it again. I called my c.c. rep. and was able to get a credit for the amount I was charged and put a BLOCK so the company can never charge my c.c. again, I also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, which anyone who has been taken by this ad should do. Now just this morning I have received 6 phone calls within 30 minutes, I know it’s from someone from this scam so I don’t answer the phone. I will file another complaint with F.T.C. if the phone calls continue.

    THANK YOU TO ALL!! I was going to sign up after seeing this ad again.
    Home Profit System.
    The news Gal, ‘Traci’ in video is a weather lady in Philadelphia. Hey if she’s still recommending this place well maybe I SHOULD do it.

    BUT, I’m older and been stung so I began to browse BBB and a few sites all complaints. Then I found you guys and that was it for me. They are offering 3 positions in my area and instead of $297.00 for the Kit, Angela and Kelly are offering it for $97.00. And like I read here, I forget which one but she lives in Pa.

    Thanks again people. $97.00 would have caused me a major problem.

    I have not logged out of site yet, but I’m sure I’ll get the “WAIT” option. Of course they have my phone number but I do not answer any # I don’t know anyway.

    I have been scammed by Profit Masters Academy, or whatever the name now used.

    Joined December 26, 2012 and the only help I have gotten since January 2013 is everyone passing me from number to number and giving me different information. I was suppose to have a “Coach” since the last time I talked with someone, January 9th. Haven’t heard from a soul! New products not added as they stated would happen in a month. Of course, they advertise you just “post” links. . . . . untrue! Unless someone clicks and “buys” you don’t get a thing. Their summary page showing you what you can make for each amount you “post”, not true. No way did I think you could get rich quick, that it would take time, but I am very disgusted and out of the money sacrificed to make money. To this day, no response from a letter I wrote last month. Live and learn. . . .the hard way!

    Using Angela Bussio (CNN, Fox News, ABC, USA Today, MSNBC) Author, Motivational Speaker,
    Stress Expert and Adviser/Financial, who works with Katie Smith, was a sure magnet for people. I’d like to talk with her about how stressed I am right now and advise me on how to get my money back!

That make someone want to act fast before they miss out on the deal.

    A lot of these scammers try tactics that enrich urgency in the visitor so they’ll act without thinking, and that’s how they nab ya. The internet seems to be riddled with these “fake” opportunities. Such a shame.

    I would use my middle initial and put a picture on all my websites. If need be put that you are in no way the Kelly Richards associated with Home Income Profit System Scam.

    When I was growing up guys at my High school would approach me based on my name Cassandra Holmes and ask me if I was the one in these porn movies and ask me to come to their house. I was disgusted and angry & after telling the immature guys off I decided to do research on this person and although I had no interest in seeing what she looked like, but in researching found out our Middle Name (Initial) was different. I basically did what I told you to do at the top and since then I have not had any issues. You are doing the right thing to distance yourself period from this Kelly Richards and just like my name there are probably alot of Kelly Richards in different areas so just make known who you are.

    GOD Bless!

    Why cant these people be found and prosecuted? Are they that good that they can not be located? Surely with the technoligy that is available today with Homeland Security that someone would be able to find them and lock em up and throw away the key!

    It is absolutely pathetic that they can continue to scam people out of their hard earned money!

    They don’t even make an attempt to tell you what they are trying to get you to do, to make money, What does the information pack look like? (if it does arrive) do they ask you to make your own website?

    On Saturday, 3-17-2012 I spoke with a Jake Baldwin at 1510 North Technology Way Building D, Orem, UT 84097. His direct phone, supposedly, is 801-477-9314. He said that we would be using Ebay and then proceed to build our “own website” based on something we were passionate about. They took us through an extensive interview process to make sure we were a good fit to be their “next big testimonial” that they could use on national news. I spoke with a guy named “Glen” who had a “manager” that “had very little time.” Glen then said, “I guess someone is watching down on you because Jake Baldwin happens to have time to talk to you right now.” First, we would have to sign up for “coaching.” He said that the money it’s going to cost usually scares people. He then proposed that it would be $4,000 to $12,000 and this would be for “coaching.” At the end of the 2 hour conversation we heard some children in the background and later he said that his kids were driving him crazy and he had to go. All we paid so far was $47 because, like mentioned in a previous posting, we tried to exit the site and the amount to pay kept decreasing to “special offers.” When we first signed up and paid the $47 it led us through a convoluted series of screens and then to some site for some company we had never heard of, “Home Income System.” We couldn’t even proceed until we called and scheduled a coaching session. We watched a video of inspirational stories and saw a series of training videos noted in the heading of the site, we could watch to get educated about the business.

    STAY AWAY! DON’T EVEN PAY THE $47. Now we have to try to get it back. Oh bother.

    It’s a scam. Once you purchase the material and pay for it with credit card… kiss your money goodbye. They will drain your credit card and it is overseas. Since your are signing up and agreeing, your bank will make no effort to do a chargeback since you should have know this was a scam. Not only that, but you are fully responsible for the loss because you entered your credit card on a website without security or SSL.

    Even Google has information on their website telling people this is a scam and you will not recieve a check for purchasing this scam and putting Google Ads on a hundred websites. These ads only pay for legitimate websites with an affiliation with Google and other advertisers.

    Whats funny is MSN ran an article on these scammers and on the same web page as the article, they had paid advertising for this scam! MSN, NBC, CSS, and others are just as guilty as the scammers. They know is a scam but sell the advertising space because it is all about money.

    They have hundreds of websites and all the names of the people are fake — aliases that purportedly run this so-called business. Other websites these scammers use:

    onlinehomeprofitcenter.com
    businessshuttles.com
    superaffiliatehandbook.com

    There are a lot of red flags to watch out for. First off, a legitimate entity would not make it almost impossible to get out of their page by lowering the price of their product. Second, if you notice the reviews of ALL those people getting fat paychecks, you’ll notice that most of the reviews are current. I went there today and saw that all reviews were posted within the last 48 hours. Obviously, those reviews appear to be seriously distorted. If something this good was real, it wouldn’t last very long. Keep your money.

    I too, fell into this trap but got out before it was too late.
    You have to go to your bank statement either online( easiest ) and copy the number next to the charge for the “$2.97″ charge for shipping. Then call and cancel. I got a customer service representitive within 1 minute and he cancelled order and membership within a few minutes. Make sure you get a confirmation number for the cancellation so they don’t have anything against you. Also, try to get the persons name.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey everyone
    I got in, paid the 97$ then the webhosting… my password and login info work…. i then was expecting to have my site ready within 2 days like they say, but instead I got contacted by their management for like 2 hours interview….

    I got selected to work with them, and the gentlemen admitted that they get more than 4000 applying per week, but they only contact back about 20 as they see who is potential and serious…
    Then through the interview they come to decide if you are really worth it (being trained and taught or not) etc… and they ask you to put between 10 and 20 hours a week!
    Did anybody get this far with this T.O.P.S.!

    Cos they then asked me for the major main purchase (the course, business expense refundable) to start the business and it cost 4995$! Paid it although i did not have the money (borrowed it from my son, and I am scheduled to start my first training lesson on Monday morning and I was promised to make money with 8 weeks, worth 2000$ per month as a start on average!
    So any thoughts?

    Also, I just reported them to the BBB of Utah. The street address I had was 175 S. Main Street #500, Salt Lake City, UT 84111, under name Home Proft Web/ ADM, Inc. The contact names (from California area code 850) are Joel Downing, Spencer Barton, and secretary McKell Johnson. The number I had for them was 877.461.0638 x1022 (Joel) and x1013 (Spencer).

    In my email from top home profit system, it said kim adams from reynoldsburg, ohio made $8000. I wonder if the 2 kims are related?
    Also, reynoldsburg ohio is 10 minutes from where I live. What a coincidence.

    Good to have clarification, even though i was very skeptical, its great to read, as when you have health problems and cant be the professional you were things like this prey on people in greatest need for money. I didnt know if id be well enough to do it , and its interesting to now see others, with health problems and other issues too had looked at this, as they prey on the vulnerable. They have listed this home income thing on an employment site in Australia, only stating its a job vacancy, and then people click on a link to a thing called Australian Daily and as in your article it presents like its from some newspaper.They too use the name Kelly Richards.

    Kim Adams of Montgomery TX making $7k-$8,000.00 a month. I looked her up in the white pages; she was listed. I called her. Shocked and not happy that these scammers used her name (polite to me).

    They got me one night in my desperation to find a way to work from home. I had a stroke in January and am not very mobile but still need to be able to provide for myself. It was so complicated and frustrating getting through the video training I gave up. I received a call and they wanted to know about my credit card debt. I told them I didn’t have the information handy and he told me when I had it to call him back. I did call to see if the number was legit and the guy who said he worked there did but I couldn’t get to him. I never received a call back and I have tried to login and can’t. The company was listed as Tops Academy.

    I filled out all the info, got my personal site and have been waiting for my kit…..it’s been over a week an no kit has arrived yet…..

    However, I got a call from a smooth chracter by the name of Brandon from Salt Lake City…..

    He asked me a lot of questions about my current debt and the worth of my credit…..as we went along he also explained how he wanted to use me as an advertisement for their site as a success story but that would have to be approved by his boss for me to qualify…..

    He also went on to explain how I could invest x amount of money using my credit card and would use these banks credit cards value to make money for me over several weeks that would not only pay off my debt but also having making me money……

    I was a little dubious at first but agreed to receive a call from his boss this afternoon…..aftr reading these I’m going to cancel the call as well as my debit card…

    Guess the old saying is true…..if it’s too good to be true, it probably is…

    I ordered the Home Income Profit Kit and much to my surprise they took that $139.95 fee out of my checking account and I do believe that that cost was hidden very well. They did refund the $139.95 after I had to get very nasty with them. I was going to the bank and reverse it and had filled out the paper work with the bank and they refunded it before the bank could do it. I did not get the kit that I was promised for the $20.94 and I cannot seem to find the right web site to find a phone number to call and get the $20.94 back. I think it is a scam.

    But i don’t even know how to get a hold of them to cancel the bs. so i cancelled the entire card instead. Waiting on my call from the company now… we’ll see how this goes

    I signed up for this BS with home biz in Cape Corral Florida, looks legit has an adress and suite number, which I found out is a p.o. box number. Got charged the 2.99 like everyone else, then I checked my statement on line and was charged 139.99 from Cash Offers. I paid the initial 2.99 with a debit card, called number to Cash Offers to get a refund.

    First they said they would refund 59.00, I said no, that I was filing a complaint with the BBB and getting in contact with my bank. They said they would issue me a complete refund, in 10 to 15 days, even gave me a cancellation#. I called my bank and had them talk to them, and they told the bank the same thing. Don’t know if money is coming back, but we’ll see in a couple weeks.

    The point is be firm on your demands, get your bank to call them, it puts more pressure on them to refund money. Also the bank said they would call them back in 7 days if the money hasn’t been returned yet. They have been scamming from that site for at least three months, that’s how long the po box has been opened. Hopefully others read this. If you’ve been scammed by this company or others, maybe you can get a refund. I’ll update in a week or two if I get a refund, also, I found their phone number online in their ad and on my bank statement. Good luck to others in my position

He said I had ten days to cancel and then I said the bill shows 5 days they billed my card. He then said I didnt tell you 10 days I told you five days. This is a bunch of scam. People beware what you sign up for on line., This is not the first time this has happened. It says the site is from Florida but I talked to someone in California. Two charges on my bill one from Netbiz and the other one from Homebiz. Fixing to turn them in and you all should too. Tired of this.

    No more credit card purchases on the internet for a phony report I do not care what channel it was on tv. That could be all fake too. Just sharing some information with you all.

Think about ANY websites alike simply as a SCAM right off the bat, don’t trust anything on the internet. Want to start your own business?? then take a business course at your local community college, don’t have time to go to class, then take an online classes. Do not rely on the internet to solve your problems and make instant money for you. HOW TO GET YOUR MONEY BACK YOU ASK?? Just simply THREATEN TO DISPUTE THE CHARGES WITH YOUR BANK/CREDIT CARD COMPANY or actually DISPUTE it. Finally whether you like it or not YOU guys are RESPONSIBLE for falling into their trap, to prevent it like the article says above it takes just READING.

    In the words of Smokey Robinson…”Everybody plays the fool sometimes”

    I was looking for a way to start up a eCommerce website and saw the Home Income Profit Kit advertized online. After reading what appeared to be valid commercial TV research reports, I gave in and submitted my order using my debit card. The initial charge was $2.99. After reviewing the SUPER CHEESY fake @ss websites that they claim will earn money by selling .pdf copies of crappy books, I decided to cancel my account. I sent email messages to the support website requesting cancellation. The tech support rep kept trying to convince me to stay on longer and assured me that I would start making money soon. I just kept replying with “CANCEL my account NOW…..When should I received my refund?” He finally sent me a confirmation that all my Websites and my account was canceled and that I would no longer receive charges.

    After two days, I received a charge on my account for $139.99 plus an additional $4.99 for an international transaction charge. I called the Home Income Profit Support number and explained that I canceled the account and I even read the emails to the rep. The rep said that because I did not call the certain phone number that my cancellation was not valid.

    Needless to say, I freaking lost it on that dude. I told him that if he didn’t refund my money this instant that I would sue and own that cheap @ss company and I said a few other things. I didn’t curse though, I’m proud of myself for that.

    I them contacted my Bank and canceled my card and reported the charges as fraud, except for the $2.99. The Bank then told me that the charges originate from some place off the coast of Africa. That’s why I received a $4.99 international transaction fee. Freaking crooks man.

    Anyway, I’ve learned my lesson. Stay away from any system that promises an easier way to make money. Making money is hard work, even for the wealthy folks. They’ve just got a better knack at it then most of us. I’m still trying to start up a profitable eCommerce website but I will build it from the ground up with plenty of security and using legitimate web hosting companies and tools.

    Thanks for reading,

    Hi folks,
    this is obviously a scam I applied for a job there posted on Craigslist (which did not mention their name) and obviously I read the reviews I would dread working for a company with such low ethics & moral standards. For your information I did get a response from a certain JULIEN WATKINS & the office is MONTREAL BASED. I believe these info to be accurate as they abviously do need me to contact the proper person if I want the job….Montreal is by the way notorious for telemarketing scams…

    Enjoyed your review. I did try something similar last year, which was supposed to be typing in links, but was really about setting up some website with a garbage report being sold for $35.00.It wasn’t worth $3.00 and the info was free on the internet, anyway. I did get my money back on that one.

    Last week there was a news item on the radio about a 24 year old in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada named Jesse Wilms?, I believe who was under investigation for ripping Americans and Canadians off for $470,000,000 – Yes, that’s 470 Million Dollars! He is under investigation by the FTC (States) and Consumer Affairs (Canada) for exactly the same thing most people are complaining of here – giving a low cost trial, and hiding the fact that the consumer would be charged an additional large amount once the trial period ended, or even before it did end.

    It sounds like this could be one of his companies or scams. I think the irony is that I believe he is still in business, and the fine from the Canadian side is only about $200,000-which is the real joke! I feel sorry for all the people who have been ripped off, and yes, it has happened to me, too.

    However, the reality is that it is possible to legitimately make money online or off, but those who rip people off rarely get their comeuppance, and I know in Canada, and especially in Alberta, Scammers hardly get a slap on the wrist! Sadly it seems crime does pay!

    I too found the Home Income Profits article. You are all wrong. Kelly Richards lives in Dallas, TX(HAHAHA)! I can’t believe I nearly fell for this. I have been unemployed for several years now and when I read the article (seems legit since it says “as seen on MSNBC, ABC, USA TODAY, BBC, CNN) and was very tempted. I waited several months so I could think about it. Fortunately, I lost the name of the website so I just googled Home Income Profits and this website was one of the many that came up. I am so glad I saw this first. The article about this is going in the trash immediately. This scam should be reported to the attorney general and FBI office in whatever state you live in. I am also reporting this to the Better Business Bureau! Thanks so much for this website and all of these messages.

    Thanks for the article. Websites like these prove that there is more good than evil. Don’t fall for any get rich quick scheme, 99.9999 percent of the time you’re being fooled. I got into a franchise and they scammed me and I got into a direct marketing company and they’re full of it. Hard work and smart decisions are going to make me succeed in life. Good luck you all out there, believe in yourselves and tell yourselves that you are smart enough to do it on your own.

    Please do not fall for this. They are total scammers. I fell for the $2.97 after carefully reading all the information posted. Two days after they charged the $2.97 they charged my Master Card $99.95. I called within 10 days only to be told I would be refunded the money. After the next month came and I got my statement, the credit had not been issued, I called them again and was told I did not cancel within their time period. I have never in my life dealt with people like this and I am 61 years old and live on social security. No wonder this world and economy suck…everyone is out to make a buck legally or illegally. If they refunded all the money they stole from people, they couldn’t afford to be in business.

I fell for a scam before, so I googled it and found this lovely site! Thanks so much for making my suspicions true!

    I received notice from the prevention department of my credit card company that there were charges made against my account that were out of line with what I normally charge. They tried twice to charge the bulk payment. I was so shocked and ticked off. I paid the $2.97 for the kit and never received it. I don’t know how to contact them but if they ever contact me again, I’m going to report them to the Attorney General of Pennsylvania, not to mention my Representative. I was looking for work because my company closed its doors and I need to make extra money to help out at home. These kind of people should be strung up or run out of town on a rail! This is a lousy dirty trick to play on people who really need work, not to mention need the money.

    God Bless the Internet & good people like you -
    - I got drawn into this time-waster from freaking “WeatherBug” thanks alot Bug!!!

    “Kelly Richards has moved to Colorado “making 6k a month” whats that -like 72k a year to sit on your thumb at home!!! I came close to falling for the same (scam-group) about a month ago, mainly because I recently got laid off & I am also going through a divorce “so I haven’t been thinking straight.” Almost Believing this garbage is proof of that.
    - This is like one of those forwarded emails you get that says you can make $$$$ if you forward to 10 people you know – Just a more advanced version of the same stuff.

    ** Thanks everyone for your reviews, because I was not 100% sure it was a scam until now ***

    Besides, if something like this actually did go onto the local news channel-or even National News – then it would no longer make money$$ since too many people would be doing the exact same thing (LOL) Oh right & not to mention – the News Website Channel 8 doesn’t even exist. If you look up “News Reports 8″ this is the only headline it brings up.

    Something else funny – I noticed 2 “Satisfied Client reviews” that said the exact same thing from Mark & Mike (( Mark :Comment Left on: 1/18/2011 @ 6:30am- The timing of this couldn’t be better, my wife and I are struggling too and this could be our answer ))

    This whole website is designed for people that don’t like to scroll all the way to the bottom -IN FACT – I bet they have made a $$ Killing just on all the people who have clicked on the “links”(including me) just using the click- software ads. I guess I’m just repeating what many have already said – but its really refreshing to see so many people getting smarter then the scammerzz – More website like this will continue to educate people..

    LOL. Okay this is the worst scam. First off the website is named “cnbc18.org”. CNBC is a “.com” website and doesnt have an 18 in there. Second all the comments on the website look fake. Thirdly, all the links on the fake website take you to the website “homeincomeprofitkit.com”. Thirdly, who on earth pays people that much money to post some links. What makes it ever worse is that they dont even tell you what your buying and how it works. Then I go to the terms and conditions and sure enough they state that they give you ten days from the day they charge you $2 and some change for a trail then they will charge your card 140 smackers. and 50 bucks monthly after that. A legit company would atleast give you a 30 day trial risk free and would definitly have many more testimonials (even videos for more convincing). Damn I wish I could find these scammers.

    This spoke of a single-mom of 2 in my town who’s attending the same college as me. I thought it was fishy that this “news article” popped up after closing my school’s web-site b/c it’s never had a pop up like that before. I clicked on the page to sign up. Once I got to the credit card page, I read:

    “When you click the “Rush My Order” button your credit card will be charged the $2.95 activation fee for your 7-Day Trial, and you’ll instantly be directed to the online New Member Portal. You have 7 days to get comfortable with the program. Afterwards, your membership will remain active with a monthly charge on the credit card provided of $59.95, charged automatically on the monthly anniversary of the first payment. You may cancel during the 7-day Trial, or at any time during your membership, by calling SMC Member Services at 1-877-523-9088 or going to smcsupport.smcorp.com and using the email template, and no further monthly charges will be made. During your Trial and membership you, like all SMC members, are subject to the SMC Standard Membership Rules (at www.smcorp.com)”

    Not only is there NO word on what they’re actually shipping me, but a 7-day trial seems a bit ridiculous… most legitimate programs have 30+. Glad I researched this program prior to. On top of all of it, when I read the posts on Kelly’s story, I realized it said “sorry, posts are temporarily closed” which was a good indication that the maker was closely monitoring, or cheating (posting his/her own comments posing as others), the thread!

    Word of advice – THERE ARE NO “GET RICH QUICK” THINGS THAT ARE NOT SCAMS. Gotta work hard for your money! Especially a full-time student & single mother of 2, working 2 jobs and still struggling!

I am a full time student and my husband is working now, but we are nowhere near where we were financially when we were both working. I thought for $2.99 I would try it. I would NEVER pay $139.99 for this ridiculous thing. Please DO NOT let these people scam you. I called them and they did tell me that they would reimburse me 40%, but anything less than the 100% is NOT enough!!!!

    I (in retrospect) received a scam email. someone obtained the email address book of a friend and sent an email entitled “Let’s make money together”. There was a link which provided a kit for $2.99 (not bad). It is called the “Home Income Profit Kit”. I did not read all the fine print, and a week later my debt card was billed $139.99 (At 10:06 PM on Thanksgiving night!). I have tried to contact them through the phone number listed on the transaction, but there is no answer/call back as of this posting. I filed a claim with Wells Fargo for reimbursement (It is pending), and I cancelled my ATM card and had a new number issued (so they can not bill me anymore). If they want to complain about that, I would be happy to talk with them, and no doubt so would Wells Fargo and the Better Business Bureau)! If the email had not come from a trusted friends address I never would have even opened it, and I’m sorry I did now. Beware!

So I googled and decided to find out what was being said about this site. I wasn’t going to go for it but I just wanted to read about the scam. In this day and age please look before you leap. Most people can afford $2.97 but not $140 + monthly fees. If it doesn’t tell you what you’re selling stay away. Send it to your spam file. Oh and I have found for internet purchase’s I have a loadable debit visa or mc. I use it all the time and only keep a certain amount on it. That way if I don’t get scammed because they can only take out the amount that is in there and it’s not related to my personal accounts. I keep less then $100. Try it, there’s peace of mind in the loadable cards compaired to your personal ones.

    This system set off red flags from the get go. I have been scammed before (and fortunately, got my money back), but there are many out there. The key is to investigate and research on your own before buying into it, reading all the terms and conditions, monthly payments, and so on. In addition, checking with the BBB helps as well. I found it amusing how many places Kelly Richards is from, including CA, Ala, NJ, and when I looked it up-WOW-she was living right in my town in MA. She obviously gets around a lot, but seriously, she is just a face for them to promote their product and is not who she says she is. Another word of caution, and I think we all know this, if it sounds too good to be true, then it is more likely than not to be a scam. Don’t throw away your hard-earned money!!

Regarding Kimberly Anne’s comment: If you read all the comments on this page, some people were ripped off trying to cancel the first day even! Since you work there you know that all of you are scum and you rip people off. You may not want to make comments on sites like this. I am pretty sure most these people would not spit on you if you were on fire.

I put in my name, email, and number…I took a nap and woke up to find they called me 10 times!!!! 10 times, seriously? So, I was in the middle of dinner and they called again…I was ready to rip them a new one, but for some reason I got suckered in again. I actually eneded up giving them my CC info and made it half way through before I kept thinking, “No way, this has got to be a scam, no way, this can’t be true.”

    I hung up the phone, and actually had to disconnect my phone bc they wouldn’t stop calling. Should I cancel my credit card even though I gave no permission to charge?? Do you think I will get charged for other outrageous charges even though I have not given permission??? What if I just cancel my CC, will that stop everything?? Or will my bank still continue to pound me for money?? Either way, please don’t fall for this. It is a MAJOR scam!! It seems good at first, but then it hits you….DON’T DO IT!!! I went too far and actually gave my CC number before I realized I went too far. So far, I haven’t been charged, but I was just wondering if I should cancel my CC before I even do get charged. Please help me w/what I should do….

    Yep another SUCKER sucked in because I figured if it were being advertised and an article written in a local paper that it was legit.. NOT after paying the stupid $2.97 and being taken to another screen where it wanted you to “Build Your Own Website” I knew it was BAD NEWS so I tried to cancel and eat the $2.97 HOWEVER it obviously didn’t cancel as YES they charged me another 3.02 and then a whopping $70. + just 7 days later AFTER I already cancelled. THEN I actually called the number on my bank charges and put my phone on speaker and sat there for almost an HOUR!! with YEP you got it NO ANSWER. So I emailed the parties that sent me an email that same evening and told them what I thought and what I was going to do about it. Then I went to may bank and filed fraud charges which are now pending and I closed out my account.
    I hope they get caught and sued the JERKS

    This is a horrible scam. You pay the $2.97 and get access to some “Commerce Academy” site that offers the famous”kit” for $136. I stopped there, didn’t confirm wanting it, didn’t click on “yes” but after 1 week I got charged the amount. They refund only half of the amount, that’s how they make their money.Now I have to cancel my CC.DON”T GET SUCKED INTO IT!!!!If it’s within 5 days of your first charge CALL AND CANCEL.

    I actually considered the site because I found the article in my local newspaper about Kelly and blah, blah, blah. I tried the site and it stated 2.97 for a 5 day trial then, I clicked away from the site and a window pops up stating, only .99 special discount ends 11-6-10. Wow how ridiculous is that. It’s so sad that there are people that don’t care of taking advantage of vulnerable beings. Stuff like this is what makes us all not trust anything, or anyone.

    Kelly Richards also resides in Forest Park,GA.Sadly, I fell for this stupid scam about 10 minutes ago. To make a long story short, I called the bank to have them send me a new credit card with alternate numbers. Then I will file a claim with the bank so they can get my $2.97 back.Yes,it’s that serious. At least they won’t be able to charge my card anymore than they did. I wish I saw this article before I saw Kelly Richards.

    I just happened to be on the net looking at various news article and the Home Income Profit Kit information popped up as one of the headlines under the business section stating that this product was aired on our local Channel 7 abc news (I never saw it).

    What caught my attention is that Kelly Richards who is supposed to be a single mom living in Oakland,Ca made over $6,000 a month. Since I work in Oakland and use to live there I thought “wow”, If she is making money like that in California where the economy also hit us very hard maybe this will work for me. I went to the Home Income Profit Kit website and was so excited at first.

    Once I was there I gave them my information but, not my credit card information. It stated that I had to agree to the terms and conditions of the 30 day trial period and pay $2.97 for the kit to be sent to me. I was unable to get any further than that page and was never able to read any terms and conditions. That is when I clicked off of the page but, not before a message popped up basically begging me not to leave the site without paying and joining their membership.

    I knew it was a scam and didn’t pay them a dime. Right after that I received an email from some guy named Dr. Jay Schrader congratulating me on visiting the Home Income Profit Kit website and begged me to come back to complete the payment transaction and membership. This was on 10-29-10 and I’ve received several emails from this Dr. Schrader advertising a load of other work at home websites.

    I finally clicked on the “unsubscribe me to receive these emails” button in hopes that he doesn’t send me anymore emails. Don’t fall for this scam. If you did, try reporting them to the Better Business Bureau and reporting them to your local police department or for those of you who can afford a lawyer seek one if you get scammed by these scam artists. This will put a some heat on them and hopefully they will think twice about scamming someone else.

    I saw this scam on “channel 7 news,” and no…Kelly Richards lives in Hillside, NJ. I felt it was a scam immediately because they never tell you what the job entails, want information for you to get anywhere on their site, and give no info but ask for a credit card # right away. When I saw the credit card thing, tried to navigate away from the site and got a pop-up urging me not to leave the site. I was nearly scammed by an ad in the paper; sent in a resume and all that stuff (they made it appear to be office work) and then was contacted several months later with a “work from home” offer involving receiving money orders in the mail and cashing them. I didn’t bother, but if I had I could’ve ended up in a big mess. They need to do more about stopping scammers. Unfortunately, the scammers seem to always be a step ahead.

    I saw this site and I seen it several times before, and i just didn’t trust it and never really taken it seriously. So, it popped up again on me today, and I find it to be a VERY good habit to look things up especially when it comes to giving away your own money, and I came across this site. After reading several of the comments, I went back to the page, and reread it. There are alot of grammatical errors, this Kelly Richards just happens to live in my same area (I had first seen this ad in Charleston,SC then i moved and she coincidentally moved with me to Philly), and I read the bottom of the website which I copied below for your entertainment.

    The home income wealth system is a complete scam, they seemed legitimate because they had shown CNN, MSNBC, Time and many well known companies advertising for them but they are a HUGE SCAM! I went on the website that states “Pay only $2.97″ and they charged me $2.97 AND $139.95 THE SAME DAY. I called when I received my credit card statement conveniently 30 days later and they said it was too late to get a refund. I argued and finally had to get the credit card company to call them to fight this battle. You could tell they were completely on the defense when I called, no legitimate company would react this way instantly. Do not use them and please report them to all agencies that can stop these scam artist.

    Call their base of operations here in the USA. Demand your money back and if they don’t refund it, threaten to call your card provider (for me it was VISA) and they will credit the money back to your account.

    FYI you ALWAYS have 30 days to dispute ANY charges on your card (as long as it’s a VISA/MC/AMEX/DISC) … especially if they don’t give you all the details. If it comes to calling your card company tell them that you were mislead on what the amount to be taken from your card was and you didn’t authorize any charges other than 2.97. They should have a voice recording (I ordered via telephone) asking you to authorize the charge of 2.97. If they don’t you get your money back in 24-48 hours.

    For those of you that ordered via the internet I don’t know what rules apply, but I’m sure your card company will be more than happy to help you get your money back. The number to call if you have to contact your card company is the 800 number printed on the back whatever card you signed up with. Just let them know they misrepresented what you would be receiving and how much they would be charging you.

    I fell victim to this scam yesterday. I’m usually pretty good with spotting scams like this and I usually do research first but with everything going on in my life I had a weak moment and wanted to believe that something like this could be real. Reality is, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Especially if you find it online.

    So I paid the 2.97 and got the username and password. They try to get you to sign up for some VIP thing where you get additional tutorials that claim will give you the tools to help you make more money. I signed into the account and there was like a 12 week tutorial. They only allow you the first week tutorials on their so called trial. And they “unlock” the tutorials by the week claiming that they don’t want you to get too far ahead and a week by week training is a better method to learning how to do what they claim is to make lots of money.

    I looked at the first week tutorials and they are ridiculous. They really don’t teach you anything of value whatsoever. They dance around ideas that make you think you are getting some information out of it but the information they give out is stuff you can easily find out on your own.

    Meanwhile there are a ton of additional products that they try to up sell to make money. So they are really trying to get you to spend more money.

    Then I did the research and found it was nothing but a scam.
    I called the customer support number and it was a botched recording. First of all in the email their support is M-F 9am-6pm. I called on a Sunday and they said that “all their representatives were on call and to leave a message or hold for the next available representative.” Then the voice kept skipping…so at this point after reading all these posts about additional charges I began to panic.

    I looked at my credit card account online and the charge wasn’t posted yet. I called my credit card company and told them I fell victim to an internet scam. They saw the charge was pending and what they did was issue me another credit card number and they closed the account as well as unauthorized the charge and issued me a new account. I felt so relieved.

    I’m so glad I called immediately and that the worst thing that happened was that I have to cut up my current card and wait for my new card with my new account number to come in, phew!

    Again, I can’t reiterate enough that if something sounds too good to be true on the internet, or even anything that says make money FAST, its a scam. If money was that easy to make we would all be millionaires. Buyer beware, these types of scams are all over the internet and they really need to stop!!! Especially when people feel vulnerable during these hard economic times…Those scammers have no shame to what they are doing to innocent people…It enrages me…

    I regret to say that I believed this website was legitimate, so I purchased it. After reviewing the site I knew that something just wasn’t right about it, so i canceled my membership and when I did I had to listen to a representative for 20 minuets before he would even consider me canceling my membership. After I canceled I started watching the site more and I realized they changed the city to fit your area, and also notice that the place to leave a comment is closed due to spam (It’s like they know that they’re lying) Save the $3.00 and find something more useful to spend it on!

    It’s a huge scam. It’s fun to take it apart though when you look closely. It’s pretty convincing and well-constructed. Some interesting things to note:

    I live at the other of the world – Malaysia, to be precise. Despite our differences in cultures and beliefs, we share a common need – money. Money to survive, pay our bills and feed our families. Kelly Richards’ (btw, she has now migrated to Oslo) story was too good and inviting to pass. Moreover, I had found the link on Channel 6 (through Google News) which seemed like a legit and respectable portal that would probably not host a link to a scam. I clicked on the link provided to access Home Income Profit System but found that the site had been removed. I then Googled the company and stumbled upon your website. I’m so grateful and relieved that I did after reading all of your experiences with this scam.

    Although I pride myself in not easily falling for online scams, this particular proposal to make money from home with minimal start-up funds seemed too attractive to let go. I’m a homemaker who had left my job to spend more time with my kids. Working from home would have been ideal to supplement the family’s income and regain some financial freedom.

    I guess I’ve learnt my lesson today – that if something appears too good to be true, then it probably is untrue. Thanks for alerting me and thanks for all your posts on this issue.

    While searching the web, came across site; Home Income Profit System. It sounded factual so asked for more info, and somehow found myself buying the program. Had a person by the name of Micah Telletier first talk to me, asking if I was serious about making money on-line. Told I’d have teachers to talk to (1 on 1) show me how to advance my business once established, which could be in a couple of days, I’d be up & running. This Micah turned me over to his supervisor and owner of the company a Mr.Garrad Carolan. After he explained to me how I’d make money, I was skeptical of the process & decided it was not for me. The day I first inquired for info, I was charged the $2.97 + $39.00.

    When I called back to cancel the program, the recording gave me options like #1 to order, #2 when shipped, #3 inquire, #4 talk to teacher, #5 cancel/refund. So when I called, and touched #5 Refund recording stated,”this number not recognized!” That’s when it hit me, it’s a scam! Called bank and canceled card.

    I just wanted to point out that not only will you get charged the $139.95, you will also get charged $39.99 every month after that. Also, it states that by purchasing the product you are given access to online material but nothing will physically be sent to you. They also pretty much tell you that you will not make money from this program. This was forwarded to me by a friend today because she thought it was cool that Kelly Richards was from Jackson, Michigan, lol. Maybe I’m a skeptic but I know better than to give away my credit card info without doing a little research first!

    Noooo! Kelly Richards lives here in San Diego, CA! At least that’s what the scam’s newspaper article (that my idiot friend linked me to) said.

    I found this site because I was looking for a review exposing this scam. I sent you’re review to my idiot friend and told him to send your review to all the people on his mailing list.

    The very first tipoff was that this goldmine offer falls under the category: IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS. Of course, I always leave the PROBABLY out of this old adage.

    Thank you for exposing this, and thank you to all the people taking this crooked enterprise to court. Best wishes to all the good folks, who, because of hard times got bamboozled. I hope you all get your $ back!

    I fell for a prior internet work at home business that was promoted by an Angel Stevens which as we all know now was a scam. After buying the program offered, contracting for a required webhosting svc, I was charged $7K for coaching & mentoring services which ultimately did not assist me through a single transaction that made me any money. In the end, I was out approximately $9K, alot of my time, and was not able to earn one cent!! I learned!!

    These are all scams. The offer of the software is cheap enough to suck you in, but the real money these scammers get is from the coaching, mentoring, secret private databases, monthly access fees, and the like. And by the way, once you buy the software, you will be receiving one to two call a day from these mentors trying to convince you that you need this service to be successful. Just buyer beware! These people do not care about your financial situation. They just care about your credit card limit and your available credit. If you look at it logically, you have to ask yourself, “If these people made so much money, and there are millions yet to be made, why offer it to the public? Are strangers really that generous? NOT!!!”

Scary thing is all i did was type in my information including my phone number…but i didn’t click the button to complete the last step, i backspaced all my information and exited the page once i finished reading this article. And 5 minutes later someone calls me about the system from “the company” trying to get me to sign up…i hung up and the same guy called me back 2 minutes later asking me why i changed my mind, and he even raised his voice at me and said “I just want to know WHY YOU DIDN’T COMPLETE THE PROCESS?!?” I replied, “You’re just a scam! don’t call me back again!” O_O creepy. i just typed it and they got my information! thankfully nothing on my credit card account got charged. THANK GOODNESS I DIDN’T REALLY DO IT! Don’t be fooled! ITS A SCAM!! As for the Project Payday… i don’t know. I need to do more research… but for now, I will have to continue with the struggle. =/ But the struggle is better then almost losing your money to a scam!

    I was closing the Jobs.com web page, which also seems to be a scam. It popped up when I was assisting my husband with completing an application for a job online. When we weren’t getting anywhere with the Jobs.com websearch, we closed it and instantly got the News6 Insider Story with Kelly Richards giving an “interview”. My family is desperate for my husband to have a job and so we of course was very interested in this. Although my husband doesn’t have the computer skills, I thought that I could do it in the evenings after my work day part time to make the extra money my family needs. I almost did it but decided to Google “Kelly Richards from Tampa, FL” first and found this information. THANK YOU, THANK You, Thank you!!! You kept us from making a very bad mistake. We are already struggling. This is sad that $$$ is taken from people who most desperately need it to survive!!!

Something seemed weird so I decided to google Home Income Profit System. To my surprise, I found this page and I am horrified! I fell for it… but what saved me was not having enough in my account for them to charge the $139! I’m disgusted at these people! Thank you to whoever created this page.

    What they also don’t mention is that you only have 3 days to review it for free (except for a small shipping fee), then you have to pay $139.95 for the program. After that you pay $39.95 each month for as long as you use their program.

He told me we just didn’t have the money right now. They wanted $2.97 today; $99.95 billed in 5 days; & $49.95 monthly membership. After I got off the phone with my husband I googled Home Income Profit System and that is where I found this article.

I, however, was fortunate enough to be able to get a kind person on the phone who said she cancelled my membership just now. (I unwisely signed up yesterday without reading these comments first.) She did offer me the “3 easy monthly payments of $39.99″ first, & then a “$69.99 one-time only fee” if I would stay. She assured me no payments would be taken from my bank. You can be sure I’ll let you know if this turns out to also be untrue. Hopefully I’m only out a few dollars.

    I did fall for this, and am pissed off. I am usually very careful with my money. I read and read again, and thought about it again and again before deciding to give my credit card # for $2.97 for the kit they promise (which I never even got that). Then find out several weeks later (when receiving my credit card bill) that I’d been billed for $79 for a membership I had no idea I had signed up for. All my old links I had used several weeks before no longer work. I was told thru the company I could have refunded after 30 days of signing up, but being I never knew I was signing up for anything, the 30 day mark is well past. I got some advice from one comment on another website that I forgot about and should have heeded. If you want to earn money with a legitimate “job”, you should not have to pay ANYTHING to do it, therefore anyone who asks for money up front for ANYTHING is not on the up and up. Thanks for posting this news for other people to learn.

    The Kelly Richards in my article was from Springfield, IL, which makes sense since the article was linked to a careerbuilder.com job posting page. The first red flag is the fact that halfway down the article, they referred to her as Marie, so they obviously just change names and did a poor job of it. I went to another posting page for the same company but in a different city to see if the article (supposedly on la-sentinel.com)would have a different city. Interesting how on BOTH articles the comment section was disabled and all the posters were ever so positive.

    I also googled the “Home Profit System” or whatever it’s called and I found the same article with a different woman’s name and city, but otherwise the SAME article, and I also found this site. Some people are just dirtbags.

    Absolute scam! The list of lies I was told is so long, I won’t even bother writing about them. It should say that most of my experiences are already documented in comments above. But here is a new one. They cannot even send a confirmation of an account cancellation in an email or fax. At first they claimed they had sent it. Then different agents, supervisors and managers mentioned different URLs from which I should have received like www.theinternetprofittreasurechest.com and www.theinternetprofithouse.com etc none of which were from the URL where I received the confirmation of my $2.97 payment. When I explained these are not email IDs, I was told the email ID is theinternetprofittreasure@yahoo.com I asked them if they do not have an official business email and they said this is the email with which they do business. Incidentally a test email to this Id has also bounced!!

    I usually get suckered into stupid things like this and spend weeks trying to get my bank account sorted out, however this time I was smart enough to read the terms and conditions so I knew about the 3 day trial. Within in an hour of signing up and reading some of the material on the “members website” I started trying to call the number that was included in my welcome email, however there was no answer. So I then preceded to send out several emails none of which were answered until the following Monday telling me they were canceling my membership but this morning I checked my bank account and sure enough I have a charge pending for $139.95 I then sent out another email and tried calling for over a half hour before I finally someone answered. The woman who answered the phone informed me I would be getting a refund but it could 5 to 7 business days, I explained I was trying to avoid being charged at all and canceled well within the 3 day trial and was told that I left a message after business hours, I told her I had sent my email well within business hours and I should not be charged at but she continued to argue with me! Unbelievable!! This is a scam!!!!! Don’t do it!!! If is sounds to good to be true it is!!!!

    I’m so sorry to see how many folks actually fell for this. It did sound like such a good deal, but as I was reading, I thought, wow…this sounds like a catch page, not an article. I then tried clicking on some of the other links on the page and guess what…they are all inactive, I then checked the parent directory of the site and found that there are several versions of the same page and that’s it. But, within minutes, I must say, I began thinking that this was actually a brilliant method of marketing, hopefully some of you that got scammed will be able to look at what they did and use it in a positive way to build your online marketing endeavors. Good luck all and ALWAYS do your research.

    First off, yes this is a scam but before you go flying off the handle about the sites advertising them and the persons listed as having “profited off of it” not living where they claim, and other companies they try to associate with, their advertising isn’t illegal.

    1) The ad, they clearly stipulate multiple things in these ads. First this has been advertised on such site/channels/Companies as CNN, MSN, Time, People, etc. they can’t say as seen on unless these groups actually talk about them. Second the ad clearly states that the story isn’t real, this is stupid fine print for you. They also state, your results will vary, like you won’t have any results like advertised. The pictures on the sites are not actual users. They have to state this because if they don’t they could be sued for false advertising and it would be easy for their “marks” to get their money back, the way it is now you have to fight and piss and moan to get it, and then you probably still won’t.

    2) The companies they are advertising on aren’t to blame, these companies have advertising departments and policies and when it comes down to it anybody with the cash can advertise on/in any of these sites/channels/magazines, these companies get so many potential advertisers per day that they don’t have time to verify that its a scam, and even if they did by the time they discovered it the scam name would have changed and would be trying to buy another ad under the new name.

    3) The security companies like VeriSign, GeoTrust, and TrustE are not part of this scam. These companies provide security encryptions for websites and transfers. They don’t pick and choose who they run encryptions for because of the fact that all web sites transferring information and data need securities, and that’s what these companies provide, they don’t do research on the companies they just protect the information transfer, any site using all 3 of these companies though are probably using the lowest functionality, and cheapest services, just so they can use them on their site to make people feel more secure. These security sites are not the BBB and just having their logo on the site doesn’t make a company legit, it just means they are secured.

    Second, many wonder why these scams don’t get shut down. that’s simple though, they’re not breaking any laws. These a-holes have researched the laws and they know how to protect themselves from fraudulent advertising charges and get themselves associated with legitimate companies without those companies approvals, and they love the fine print. On the other end of the ad, the transaction end as it is, they do provide the service they are promising, ignoring the fact that its less than you get from a book for $50 on how to make money on the web, but there is no law against over charging for lack luster information, and then charging for further information, probably gotten from that $50 book. Also, thought the 2-3 day trial period is shady again they did give it to you, they don’t specify that you have the materials during that period, this would be the easiest part of the transaction to get back your money but most likely the most you’ll get back in this claim is the S&H because it was to blame for you not having the resources to review. Good luck on getting your money back, these people may be more underhanded than the mafia, but they are breaking far fewer laws.

    So in conclusion, yes it is a scam, but no its not illegal.

    Here is their current contact information from their terms and conditions provided through a link at the bottom of the ad page, who knows how accurate it is.

    I’m thinking about starting a business in fraud detection. A quick perusal of the Kelly Whatsherbucket article shows it to be bogus quickly. The writer of the article has trouble with the basics of English grammar. The first time he quotes Ms. Whatsherbucket he forgets to close the quotation–not to mention the grammatical impossibility of the final sentence of the quotation. Click on the Facebook link, and it takes you to the systems home page rather than to Facebook. Legit businesses have sites that work and employ people called editors to make sure the text is correct. If you’ve ever been duped by this type of thing, I can only say that you should have paid more attention in school. I did pay attention, and I can spot the frauds instantly. It’s so easy. If you fell for this, you deserve what happened.

    I have been scammed! I am a mother of two and a student. This website popped up while I was checking my email. It sounded so good because I needed only to pay $2.97 for the Tool Kit and if I like the info, I would pay $79.86. I checked my email the following day, but received no receipt- customer courtesy- I waited for email or even the mail. Nothing came. I went to the website to get thier customer service number; it was not available. Checked my bank account and saw I had been billed both the $2.86 and the $79.86. It was pending on my account, Called my bank to get thier number and my bank did not have it available but, said they had noted the complaint. When I checked my account the following day, the amount was not there anymore and I assumed it was resolved and went ahead studying for my exams. Only for me to discover on tuesday 6/9/2010 that the same company “School Dot” as it appears on my account charged me $79.86 again. The bulb lit up at this point and I checked my last billing, my bank paid them the initial $79.86.

    Therefore, all talk and no action will not stop these crooks from scamming other people. Please lets all file our complaints to the “Better Business Bureau” and also to the “State Attorney General’s Office”. Even if you lost nothing or $2.98; we can all get our money back. I would not mind spending 5years or more on this issue because it always works for me. All we need is take this seriously and report to these agencies and I bet you! Very soon you will receive news that they have been caught. Please dont just come to this site and complain and then leave. Take action! The economy is so bad….Yet there are bastards out there taking advantage of our plight!!! Say no to scam and lets fight back! Just one scape goat will teach others a big lesson.

The only way I could take care of them not charging me anymore was to call my bank AND CANCEL MY CARD WHICH I JUST DID- YOU GOT ME FOR $2.95 BUT I WONT BE A SUCKER AGAIN NO WAY- D O N O T G I V E T H E M O N E R E D C E N T!!!!!!!!!!

    I checked whitepages.com for a Kelly Richards in Folsom. Surprise, surprise, no Kelly Richards in my area. Then I clicked on the link to the Home Income Profit System webpage a few times to see if it looked legit. The funny thing is, every time I went back to that site the domain name would change. A reputable site wouldn’t keep changing their domain name. NOTE TO ALL: Do some research before you decide to give an unknown company your credit card number. If it’s too late and you’ve already given them your money, dispute it with your Bank or Credit Card Company. YOU CAN GET YOUR MONEY BACK.

    First clue…if you make it all the way to the payment page, click the back button in your browser. Any good scam will pop up a window with “Wait! Don’t leave now, you’ll miss out! We’ve added additional discounts to your order.” or something similar. Legit programs have no reason to pester you with such bogus pop ups. Additionally, if the initial story you’re reading has CNN all over it but the web address is something like “www.newschannel7.com” or “dailynews9.com” just get away from it.

    I am a security analyst in IT. These type of sites are all over the net. The majority of Americans are hurting for money, so what better way to scam them than by telling them that they’ll show you how to start making 150,000 a year doing almost nothing?

    Start like any good security plan. Nothing gets in, nothing gets out. From there, research what needs to be open, and if it truly does, open it. Don’t trust anybody.

Fortunately, so far, I have only been charged $2.97, but nowhere on the information I found that it was a 3-day trial or any days trial. Since I had a bad feeling about it, there was no customer service number, I started to look for a phone number to call to cancel and I found your website. Thank you for all this information. Lucky for me, I closed that bank account yesterday, so they will not be successful.

    Sooo glad I researched this program but I paid $9.99 for my first package and followed directions and watched cd and then listen to the 800 audio and then set my phone appt. After talking to my personal coach (Gary Bailey)888-672-4943 and him asking me if i would like to pay the $149 for the next packet a light went off and I asked if in the future I would be required to purchase more packets, he basically said YES!!! Now get this OMG Mr. Bailey said they work with Herba Life this is the wellness program and after paying the $149 then my packet would arrive and I could get started and plug into the i-office and be set up to make money. O and on top of this the shipping was $9.99 and then I had 14 days and would be billed $39.95 for lifetime member ship, so when the $149 came up I knew this was not right and I question him on this and he tried to turn it around and wanted to sell me the product HerbaLife so I wonder if HerbaLife knows they are using there name and he even brought up a Micheal O Johson / CEO of Disney!!!!! Well say the lease I have to make a trip to the bank and make sure my account is ok and request a new bank card!!
    I think when scams like these are taking place and the NEWS puts it out in the public without investigation on the company they are airing should be accountable and these scams should not use BIG names to continue scaming people. O and this system use to be called the Black Belt system. I saw 2 ads with two ladies from Morgan Hill, California named Tanya Davis & Kim Barnes and can’t find them living in Morgan Hill so I notice they use the same post but change the names, so people yes BIG SCAM “STAY AWAY SAVE UR MONEY”

You can cancel at www.icm.cancel if you have not passed your 3 days. However, I am still concerned about the second page that asks you to apply to accept credit cards. It denied that information three times and that was suppose to be 29.99 a month. That is the page that asks for checking account number. I am not sure if canceling the 2.97 a few hours later will take that away or not. I did not post any pages but still…

I quickly canceled it and I got a confirmation. I really hope hope they won’t charge me the $149.00. Lesson learned. If it is too good to be true it is too good to be true!!

Hopefully, they’ll refund my $2.97, but if not, at least I’m not out $150.00 (according to Terms & Conditions). Thanks for all your help.

    There are so many well known news logos on the page, such as, MSNBC, abc, and ustoday. I thought, wow, it must be good. As I was filling out my information, I noticed that there was no information about the product. Rule 1, if there is no information about the product and how it would work, then turn away! Do not buy! Why are they supported by MSNBC? The little logo states that it was “as seen on: MSNBC…” Is this legal?

    On “Online 6 news”, I first saw an add for a cheap 2 product teeth whitening system. I was unable to find any information on 1 product and a scam report on the 2nd. So I decided to look at this “Home Income” add. A web check of “Home Income Products System” brought me to your site. My add’s “Kelly Richards” is supposed to be from Paducah, KY; even though the teaser describes her as “Unemployed Smyrna Mom”. FYI: Smyrna is in Tennessee.

I also called their customer service and the guy said he’s never heard of Home Income Black and that they’re a web mall online; he also stated that this was interesting and he was going to tell someone else at the company that somehow Home Income Black’s credit card/payment form is being routed to their web site (this is what I thought was happening by mistake somehow, but after reading all these comments I now know it really is home income black and it’s a huge scam!!!!)

Excellent scam,just perfect. Actually, it may be not a scam. At the bottom it says that this online business is for Herbalife. it’s old and well-known MLM company. You indeed can earn something participating, but you need like many years of working and investing BEFORE you earn something, may be. 99% don’t earn anything in MLM. It’s very hard and expensive. That’s the sad truth. But the presentation is terrific.I am wondering:HOW MANY POOR AND DESPERATE SCHMUCKS FELL FOR IT???

    I checked this out from an email I received. But I am in a habit of googling EVERYTHING ! for research. These ppl will not stop at anything at all to rip off unsuspecting people, many out of work, desperate for money. These shysters prey on that and should be shot for it !

    One tip I have for everyone, minimal as it may sound:

    If a company does not accept a PAY PAL payment for the “only $2.97 shipping charge” (very few if any do), than you can bet that they “play cards” with your credit card, ie., they will charge YOUR credit card and getting your money back is tuff if not entirely impossible.

    BUYER BEWARE!!!! Having been out of work for over a year now, I stumbled upon the Home Income Profit website. My intuition kept telling me NOT to proceed with the offer; but I did. Once the transaction was completed, I researched the company only to find that Home Income Profit is nothing but a scam. I immediately canceled the transaction, and received a confirmation email from the company. Next, I called my credit card company to see what steps I could take to insure that no other charges were made. The initial $2.97 had already been charged, but no other charges had be assessed at that time. I was advised that I could cancel my credit card, and be issued a new one to avoid further charges to my card, or I could wait to see if I was charged any other fees and dispute those charges. I’m still deciding what to do. My credit card company also gave me a number for Home Income Profit, so that I could call them to confirm my email cancellation. I have spent a lot of time on something that could have been avoided had I only followed my gut. The moral of the story is: “If it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck: it’s a duck.” In addition, don’t be lured in by slick salespeople whether in person, or on the internet!

    whenever have you ever heard somebody wants to give you anything for free. Like the dude above said, things that looks to good are often to good to be true. Money can be earned 2 ways, criminality or hard labor work. Im running a company and i getting offers like this daily basis, people who want to sell me stuff and buy this and buy that, you will never be needed to work again and etc. if this system worked why the hell would he / her share it for so low amount of cash? and why not make a outstanding business standalone. Use the logical thinking, when you see something like this. If somebody tells you this will make you’re life complete, and you will never need anything again. You can buy it for only 10 dollars? then i would wonder, why would he give me something that precious for 10 dollar worth? if its worth so little that means he maybe trying to scam me… nobody gives anything for free, especially not money.

    For those of you that made the grave mistake of falling for this crap, my heart hurts for you and I just hope that in the future that when you receive lies such as the one in the article, that you immediately delete the page.

    With the mess that this country is in you would think that people would be more compassionate towards one another. It is obvious that is not the case what so ever and it is so very sad. I wish the best of luck to each one of you that got robbed and I hope that you get your money back at some point.

    Ciao!!!

    Come on people- stop falling for this BS. There is no easy, one-step way to get rich- especially if you have to buy someone else’s program. The only way to get rich is to get up and go to work- just like your grand parents did. Start your own business or something and stop working for other people. I sell insurance door-to-door and am able to take care of my family at a comfortable level. Sexy? No but my kids and wife are taken care of.

    WoW, apparently Kelly Richards has cloned herself several hundred times, because the ad I read says that she is from Pontiac Michigan (That’s where I live) what a bleepin shame that people have to result to this type of deception to make some money.

    Well, I fell for it too! Kicking myself in the ARSE! I ordered before doing my homework (like reading this thread first), so I’m the dumb-arse! I ordered it 5/2/10, and both the shipping charge of $2.97 AND the $139.95 were already marked as “pending” on my debit card when I looked at my account only 10 minutes later. I’m calling my bank 1st thing Monday morning to explain this and beg them to stop this fraudulent transaction. I’d like to see scammers like these go to “Alcatraz”, which is closed, which means no food….no water…..no nothing. And if they tried to escape by swimming, they would be shot immediately! That might help stop all these damn internet scams that they make look “so real”.

    Wow, am I thankful I did a Google search on this product after reading an article about it on news6alerts.com. I am from CT and read about a woman in New Britain (CT) who bought this program because she was laid off, yada, yada, yada. She swears by this kit, saying she only works 10-13 hours a day and gets to stay home with her 3 kids, making $8795 a month. My initial thought was hey, I could use money like that! I’m trying to raise a 2 year old by myself and work part time making barely enough. The article never said anything about the $139 charge after the 3 day trial which is up before you even get the product. Yet another work from home ploy that sounds too good to be true. A word of advice, if you have to pay someone to work for them, even in s&h fees, then it’s definitely a scam. You are supposed to GET paid, NOT pay someone to work for them.

    Looks like Kelly Richards also lives in Waterville, ME. RE: Home Income Profit Systems.
    I got my credit card bill and called the co. but didn’t get through. I then called my visa card co. and they explained that the $2.97 was trial only and after 3 days if not canceled, I would be charged 139. which I did not authorize, however they did read me the terms and agreements from the web site & told me to call
    the co. and make sure the “account” was canceled. I did leave a msg for the rep who had called me telling him to cancel ASAP. I did see at the bottom of the initial registration page that the co is part of SCM and membership can be canceled w/30 days which may help. Looking up on the BBB website shows the company w/an “F” rating.
    I’ll keep trying……you do so also. My credit card was charged by ICM Websites 877-863-3088 in California.

    I fell for it. But my credit card notified me that I had an unknown charges. Called the merchant’s phone number and the call was wired to California. The rep was trying to convince me to stay by offering me a lower one-time fee of $49.99. I told her that it is very deceptive for not telling consumers the upfront charges.

    When the consumer goes to the website it says you only pay $2.97 and the $39.99 is scratched out to $0.00. I had to drag the costs out of her. She also told me that I will be billed monthly $4.95 and in order for me to recuperate my fees I had to sell stuff on-line. For all those fees you are paying initially, you get ten single websites and you can only post one product per site.

    They also have a Webmall which you could post as many items they have. She promised to send me an email to list what kinds of products they have. Guess what? Never got that email and plus the one-time fee was still charged at $139.95. When you click on the link that they sent you, they ask you for your bank account information, driver’s license number, birthday, etc…

    Those are too personal information to be handed out. After further investigation I came across this website and see that you all have posted something about this company (that I have a trial period of 3-days). I called the merchant the second time and this time the call was wired to Florida. The rep says that my account is voided and will not be billed for any other charges. The only thing that I lost is the $2.97 shipping fee. That is non-refundable. DO NOT FALL FOR IT (lessons learned)!!!!!!

    This is a call from God. I thank you for posting this. I saw this ad as I was getting ready to purchase the kit on a search engine. The Kelly Richards in my ad was from York city Pa. That is such a shame. Since I have been reading ads like yours I came across some other peoples who have been scammed. Those same people swore by “The Home Based Business” and “Paid Surveys and more”. They said that these two online jobs are not only safe but reliable. Combined, you can make the profit (HOME PROFIT INCOME SYSTEM) claims you can make from them. That will be another experiment for me.

THERE HAS BEEN NUMEROUS TIMES IT HAS BEEN SAID DON’T GIVE OUT YOUR PERSONAL INFO OVER THE PHONE OR INTERNET BUT PEOPLE STILL DO IT. YOU’RE HEADING FOR A CLIFF. YOU ARE DEFINITELY GOING TO FALL BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT READING THE WARNING SIGNS.

YOU LAUGH, YOU LIKE THE CONVERSATION AND JUST LIKE A FISH TO BATE THEY REEL YOU AND THROW YOU IN WITH THE REST OF THE FISH. THERE YOU ARE STRUGGLING AND GASPING FOR BREATH, OTHER WORDS YOU’VE PASSED THE TRIAL DAY PERIOD AND THERE IS NO REFUND, NOW YOU HAVE TO CALL YOUR MERCHANT AND FLAG YOUR CREDIT CARD OR HAVE THE CHARGES DISPUTED ETC…… THEY CAN CARE LESS ABOUT YOU ONCE YOU’VE TAKEN THE BATE.

Once I got to the activate account page (step 2) the system requested too much personal information which is why I was leery and decided to do more research. I’m glad I did. I called the number listed on the first page and naturally they are closed for the day. I will be calling them in the morning to cancel along with requesting a copy of cancellation to be emailed to me. I usually don’t fall or do things like this but when I noticed this Kelly Richards was from Georgia I thought this could be ok. I am now noticing after reading all of your comments that their website reads the IP address from your computer which explains why it states she resides in so many different areas.

    This new one is worse! All I was aware of spending was the $2.98 but I was billed by 3 or 4 different companies $30 to 40+ on a monthly basis unaware. I backed out immediately when I realized the scam, they want you to pay for the ads you place and hope you make more money that it costs; you’d need at least $2000 and they expect you to lose it. They told me on the phone it’s a learning curve. Google has to be in on it I think! I will never trust them again!

    Thank God, I did my homework and a little investigation on this ‘BIG SCAM WEBSITE’ I thought it was too good to be true. I can’t believe such person or people would take innocent people’s money. Like they say what goes around comes around and they will pay when they do get caught. :(

    I did it, then found this. I’m a mom of two and REALLY needed the extra cash. I can’t wait to see my overdraft fee and start the dispute. This is just what I was afraid of. They ruin it for everyone. Like my mom says, “If it seems too good to be true, IT IS” :(

    News 6 apparently claims Kelly Richards is from Beaver Dam, Wi! She must be a busy lady in so many places at one time, especially with those 2 kids of hers. Oregon, Louisiana, Washington, Massachusetts & Texas, WOW? Where is the real Kelly, that’s what i wanna know! What a joke!

    There is hope! After i seen that the 2.97 and the 139.97 was taken from my checking account, and that was right after hitting the submit button. I called my bank and filed a claim. The next day i called to check on the progress of the claim the banker said she had a number for that sight and she connected them to me and i canceled the membership except for the 2.97 because the info packet was already mailed so he said. I am still waiting to see the reversal of the charges to my account.

    It is so good of every one to post there concerns on this page. Linda, after I read your post I wanted to post and validate what you are saying. I also agree that the comments on the news channel 6 pg were fabricated. Oh by the way, Kelly Richards is from Oregon. ( LOL ) I think somebody got paid to make a copy of a news channel and story. Sorry guys for all those who got money taken from them. I think there should be a law against this kind of thing.

    This really is a scam. And it was a definite giveaway when I went to close out of the page and the familiar message popped up saying “Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page? If you do you are choosing not to participate in the FREE trial!” which I have seen on multiple other scam pages. The comments left on the news website are fabricated otherwise why would it say the article was posted today but the comments were from the 1st and (surprise!) no more comments are being accepted. That is just an obvious scam there.

    I have spoke with the United States Attorney General’s Office,they cannot keep robbing people.This is not a turn key program,every step of the way say’s if you are unable to do this you can hire someone to do it for you or for more money we will do it for you.I’m unable to download any thing from the website.Half of the program is to download items off of the site,well the site won’t let you download anything,there staff say’s it’s my computer and my computer is in fine working order.The staff is suppose to be there to help you,when the individual realizes that you’re fed up with the nonsense of the program they put you on hold,you call back the same person answered the gentleman’s name was David lied to me and said to me he never spoke to me I asked him his name he said it was David,I said it was you I was talking to he denies it and starts to to talk over me so nothing can be accomplished on the call.Each time I call there consultants they try to get more money out of you,and then they become quite argumentative. Even my very first consultation was like that,this program is not for newbies with no computer skills as they claim it is,it does nothing but to tell you if you can’t accomplish one of there claims to hire someone who can or pay them more to do it.This Is Not A Turn Key Program…..Rich

    The article I read on the internet was from Online News 6. It said Kelly Richards was from Denham Springs, Louisiana. I live very close to Denham Springs. I looked in the Baton Rouge phone book, which list all of the Denham Springs phone numbers along with the Baton Rouge residents, and found only three people with the last name of Richards. Two of the numbers were no longer in service. I called the remaining number and was told that there was no Kelly Richards from that residence. Is her number unlisted, or do they use a phony name and so called news story and change the location to make you feel like it is someone you almost know?

    I’m glad I read your reviews. I was just about to give them my credit card information.

    THIS IS DEFINITELY A SCAM…DON’T FALL FOR IT!!! They hook you in with the $2.97 and then slam you right away for the $139.95 that according to their billing department if NON-REFUNDABLE..even if you do not activate your membership on the website.

    Unfortunate as it is, I fell for this $2.97 crap. But being kind of suspicious, soon after giving them my Visa Debit Card nbr, I went and checked my account. Sure enough, there was an additional $139.95 charged. I immediately contacted my bank, who gave me the number to file a complaint and get payment suspended.

    Oh well, live and learn, I guess.

    Spoke to Daniel and he will reimburse me in a few days
    Bank of America will investigate a potential scam here
    and will pay me the $139.00 they withdrew from my account.
    Their legal department will then seek reimbursement in 4-5
    days via help from the California State Attorney office
    if the company doesn’t respond. Bank of America is very
    helpful in these scams and I highly recommend them as a
    bank to do business.

I have had previous experience with scams and in this case I know all the players including the ones providing the bogus certs ie VeriSign, GeoTrust and Truste all of whom will be held accountable in a pending lawsuit. I know all the players in the scam even the previous company. I personally shut down six allied companies so far, but via individual States Attorney Generals and it really worked and I was refunded all my monies!!

    Their website popped up while I was surfing the net. I was almost scammed by Jeff’s Internet Millions, and this sounded like the same type of scam. Basically, the scam involves up-selling and selling you more “products” to get your business going. With Jeff’s Internet Millions, people had spent from $800 to $1000 and have not made any profit. This Home Internet Profit System sounded too good to be true, and I’m glad I did my research before ordering the kit.

    I was expecting the introductory rate of $1.99 being charged on my visa, instead I was charged $179.00. I called and found out that they automatically charge the account unless I cancelled it. I told Holly Hutchens to cancel it immediately and demanded a refund. She assured me it was cancelled and a refund check would arrive in the mail in 2 to 3 wks. I asked her to send me an email confirmation of the cancellation. She did. However, I never saw the check and when I tried to call their number 1-877-650-4678, I could never get past the prerecorded msg saying the mail box was full and will not take any msgs. I tried to send them an email, no response there either. How can I get my money back?

    Yes, this is definitely a scam. I really was going to try this product out(HOME INCOME PROFIT KIT). But, I wanted some answers first before purchasing the product. Thank GOD I called. I wanted to know how long was the trial offer. When I called a representative informed me it was a 3day trial offer. Right away I disputed the length of the trail offer. This representative kept giving me the run around. Then, told me that he could transfer me to the coaching department once I have purchased their product(for further assistance)!!!LOL This company is nothing but a JOKE in my eyes….

    Call your credit card company and start a “dispute” Do this ASAP. I don’t know how long you have to do this…maybe 90 days.
    But don’t just sit back and think you’ve lost your money. I have done this several times with online scammers. The CC company takes it from there, investigates and 9 times out of 10 you will win.
