Work at Home Institute Reviews – Legit or Scam?
from 10 reviews Review It


The Work at Home Institute, found online at, is a work at home opportunity from “the #1 job consultant in America,” Bobbie Robinson, which promises anyone can earn money from home.

Like an extremely high percentage of other work at home opportunities out there, Work at Home Institute claims to teach people how to post links online to make a large amount of money from home with little time and effort.

This program is currently discounted to $97 and comes with a two month money back guarantee if you try it and determine you are not making money and are not satisfied with the product you have received.

Signs of a Scam

The Work at Home Institute exhibits many of the classic red flags that are associated with unethical work at home opportunities. It is important to remember that these work at home opportunities are actually independent business opportunities.

As an independent business opportunity, it is misleading to make earning statements, since there are too many factors which will determine an individual’s income.

In addition, the sales page makes statements about certifications and “guarantees” of a position as a “Search Engine Agent.” Link posting and affiliate marketing require no forms of certification and the only people who use the term “Search Engine Agent” are companies trying to sell you training programs for this fabricated job.

The Reality

What Work at Home Institute calls a “Search Engine Agent” is actually an affiliate marketer, which is a legitimate independent business, though unfortunately one which takes far more time, effort, and money than is described on their sales page.

Also, historically speaking, these types of training programs usually don’t provide much more information than what you can find for free online, the one benefit being that it is usually organized in an efficient manner.

The website does mention a two month money back guarantee, but this refund is not well detailed in their Terms & Conditions or their Policy outline, stating that “if you are not making and are not satisfied” you can ask for a refund of your membership fee.

Similar companies usually use these types of policies to say that if you make even a dollar from their program you are no longer eligible for their refund. Or, immediately after you sign up for the program you are asked to invest larger sums of money which are then not eligible for refund.

If you decide to take a chance on any affiliate marketing training programs, be careful about the amount of money you are investing, and never invest more than you are comfortable losing.

As an extra precaution, most online purchases should be made with a major credit card, so if you have issues with fraudulent charges, the credit card company can help you get your money back.

    Please know that education alone will not protect you from scam artist. I typically do my research before spending money on amazing claims, but this time I took a chance. $97 dollars is a reasonable amount of money to learn a valuable lesson about scam artist. Many of these folk phish for those of use wanting more or just wanting to do better. Our desire for fast money and mindless earnings blind us to the truth that high earnings comes from hardwork and skills. So I accept my butt being spanked because of my greed. Don’t let it happen to you. Look for legitimate ways to earn and never forget ” if it sound to good to be true, it probably is”. Blessings

    WAH Institute or WAHI or Work at Home Institute, Houston, TX is the doorway into spending more money via an Education program that gives you individual training on the phone in addition to the course. Very expensive and one cost continues to another cost, website, hosting, accounting/taxes. It cost me $97 for WAH Institute and $4,000 for Advanced Education and I won’t do the course because they have scammed me via bait and switch scam. So I have lost $4,000 unless I can get my credit card companies to listen to me. Steer clear of Work at Home Institute in Houston, TX or Advantage Education in Lehi, Utah.

    Don’t fall for this. I’m so angry that I signed up and gave them my credit card info. I changed my mind about the program, and when I called to get a refund, I was told I would have to use the program for 30 days. That is nowhere on the website under terms and conditions. On the website it tells you there is a “money back guarantee”. I’m now at the point where after calling the “Support Team” several times, and being told I’m not eligible for a refund am going to try to contact the Better Business Bureau for help.

    Do Not fall for this. This is a big scamming company and the person who identified himself as “The Manager Matt” would not allow me to speak with anyone else however he answered the phone line for the support@my help agent number. The reading appear legit and will lead you to pay your money. You are given a number to call insisting that you speak with a “Startup Specialist. Be mindful that they already have your money and this person start speaking information totally different then that which you read and believed you are about to become employed with. After he question you regarding your financial status, You are told that you must be approved.
    Thinking it all over now, The Startup Specialist and The Manager Mike sound as if it was the same person.

    Yes…I was stupid and fell for it, DON’T DO IT!
