I have started with UWC Corp. W ith everyone saying I’ll start selling right away and then kept getting phone calls to help up date my web site for a fee and training which I have been receiving. Have not made a cent and was promised that Christmas would be good. I fell for this, how stupid was that. It is selling for different companies for a %. That would be okay if hadn’t gone into debt thinking I would start paying that down within a couple of weeks. I write the company I said I was dissatisfied and thought it was a scam. I did get a call right away but much was not done except drop my monthly fee of 30.00 for 6 months. Started training to but high products on my site. I still fell like I have been scammed. I am in debt at the tune of $ 8000.00 over this. Can I do anything. Thank you

stevewlaw : Hi [USERNAME], my name is XXXXX XXX I will do the best to help you. My advice is general only and does not create an attorney-client relationship. I just did some quick online research on UWC Corp., or Universal Web Consulting. There are many reports that this is a scam and a ripoff. I see they are located in Phoenix, in the State of Arizona. I don’t know what the contracts or agreements look like that you signed with them. I presumed you signed something before you gave them $8000. I would let them know that you want a refund and will return everything to them that they provided to you, but that you want out of your agreement. You need to let them know that the statements and “guarantees” that they made to you were blatantly false, and that the services they provided to you were not worth anything near the $8000 that you have paid. In order to establish fraud or misrepresentation, you need to establish that they made false or misleading statements to you in order to induce you to do something, i.e., spend $8000. You need to establish that you relied on their false statements, and that you have been damaged because of that.
stevewlaw : If they do not willingly refund all or a significant part of your money, I suggest that you report them to the office of the Arizona Attorney General. They don’t take kindly to con men who pray on those on a fixed income looking to make an easy return on their money. I believe that the AZ Attorney General would take a serious look at UWC. That is the best way for you to start. You may very well have to file a justice court complaint against UWC in order to get your money back. You may be able to find a lawyer to take the case on a contingent fee basis, meaning that you pay nothing until you get a recovery. You can look up the Maricopa County Bar Association referral service to find an attorney who might be able to help you.
stevewlaw : I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I was speaking with a woman last night in a similar situation, who became very leery of the business when they asked her for $5000 and said they would give her the documents after she sent them her money. This was, of course, after taking her for $1200 already. I feel your pain. Companies like this should be shut down for good.
