UWCCorp at it again – Bogus News Site 2014

Universal Web Consulting (UWCCorp) have launched another bogus news page, the “Online Career Journal” featuring a bogus article about a jobless mum from Manchester, Melissa Johnson, making £4,000 – £5,000 a month “working” from home (sound familiar?).

I was redirected to the website after I typed in the domain homewealthsolution.com, which I got from another blog, into the server.

Notice where it says “WARNING – Offer Expires On 29 April 2014” highlighted in yellow. That “expiry date” will simply be updated the next day you visit the bogus site.

The “expiry date” shown again. The link listed under “Associated Link” will take you to the registration page, just like anywhere else you click on the webpage (Do NOT click anywhere on the page).

The Terms & Conditions of the program, unusual to be featured on the webpage of any genuine news site.

Anyone who decides to buy any program about making money will not necessarily make money simply by purchasing the program. People who think “I bought these materials so I’m going to automatically make money” are wrong. As any type of education has so many variables, it is impossible to accurately state what you may expect to achieve, however, people who bought the program not only bought the program, but also undertook additional training and education, applied the principles to an area of the market that was growing, kept their commitments and continued to learn. If you do what the individuals depicted did, you may generally expect to achieve a great education in the area of your choice, but you should not expect to earn any specific amount of money. Typical users of the starter materials that don’t enroll in coaching, don’t keep their commitments and don’t implement what they learn, generally make no money.

You should not expect to make a penny at all by signing up to this scam. Notice the sentence, “people who bought the program not only bought the program, but also undertook additional training and education,”. The additional “training and education” are not purchased together with the program, they are sold seperately as a package “plan” by a representative who would later contact you to hard sell the additional package, usually for thousands of dollars (or hundreds if you negotiate hard enough). UWCCorp are lying through their teeth!

Consistent with the advertorial concept, the comments posted in the comment section are also representative of typical comments and experiences which have been compiled into a comment format to illustrate a dialogue, however, the comments are not actual posts to this webpage and have been compiled or generated for illustrative purposes only.

There you have it. UWCCorp have admitted the Comments on the webpage are all bogus.

bogusofferexpires

You will see the above page as you try to exit the webpage. It mentions the expiry date is “tomorrow”, however you will get the same message when you visit the next day, day after or the next week. It also mentions a “365 day money back guarantee”. That is a total lie, there is no money back guarantee.

UWCCorp will capture your IP number in order to make their bogus news seem local. This is illustrated by the comments on the blog, Money Making Sites Reviews

On my server I have the additional “/UK7SS/” after the domain name, limitedtimeopportunity.com, as you can see on the screen copies posted here. As sneaky as UWCCorp are, I am directed to the page, shown below, whenever I delete the additional code from the domain name and hit Enter-

limitedtimeopportunity

In order to visit the bogus news page, you will need to type in homewealthsolution.com onto your server, from where you would be redirected to the site. You will get your own encrypted code after the domain name, and Melissa Johnson (or what ever other alias she uses) will suddenly be from a town or city near you, which I would highly appreciate if you could share in the Comments section below.

P.S. Here is another weblink I got from another blog

http://betterlivinginsider.com/biz/NZ/

Visit the site again, but with the URL shortened to http://betterlivinginsider.com/biz/

And then, once again, visit this further shortened URL http://betterlivinginsider.com/

Notice how you’re taken to a different webpage each time? Strange, isn’t it?

UWC Corp attempts to quash Scam “Myth”

Here is their article posted on talkbiznow.com

With countless testimonials from satisfied students, the UWCCorp Scam has been proven to be a myth. This company offers world-class solutions for online marketing. In today’s world of technology, it is imperative for businesses to have a strong line presence. The Internet gives businesses many platforms to capture a new audience and gain market share. The company’s web-based training gives businesses the knowledge and skills needed to develop effective websites and strategic marketing campaigns. UWC has become the premier name in digital marketing training. Because many college classes lack the up-to-date and practical knowledge needed for internet marketing, many business owners are turning to UWC to master the skills of internet marketing. From the comfort of their homes, business owners can take the company’s online training at their convenience. The bottom line is that the web-based training program at UWC is easy, effective and engaging. The Training at UWC UWC is a trusted name in the industry with an excellent training program. Here is a list of some of the features and highlights of the training program: -Professional: UWC is an authoritative company with a professional staff. The training program was developed from online experts who have years of hands-on experience. These experienced experts know all the online strategies that work. Students are given all the effective strategies for the latest online marketing trends, such as mobile marketing and Google+. -Business Oriented: The training program at UWC is geared specifically for businesses. Specific instruction is given on how businesses can develop brand and develop a customer base. Each venue of marketing is covered in detail, such as the creation of a Facebook business page. The program only presents strategies that have been proven to be effective for businesses. -Easy: The training program is comprised of a large learning collection of engaging videos. With audio and animation, the program is easy to follow. Students can quickly learn through step-by-step video instead of having to read long text. -Comprehensive: Every topic related to online marketing and website creation is covered. In addition, each topic details its relationship to business online subjects. Students learn how to effectively social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Pay-per-click advertising, search engine optimization and Google Ads are also covered. The UWCCorp Scam has been debunked. Businesses have come to realize that the UWCCorp Scam was just a tall tale and recognize the incredible value of the company’s training program.

Another similar article was posted on linkedin.com which you can read by clicking here. The article begins with the two sentences, “Word about the UWCCorp Scam has experienced a quick death. With so many rave reviews from students, it is clear that the web-based education training program at UWC is professional and effective.”

So then answer us this question, UWC; where can we see those “rave” reviews or those “countless” testimonials? You can search for those non-existent reviews on your search engine; type in “uwc corp reviews” or “uwc corp testimonials”, you will not get any luck. Instead, you will come across articles by some financial reporting websites, evidently paid by UWC Corp to post them, and on UWC’s own blogger site, UWCCorp Reviews, all promoting social media marketing as the next best thing; fitting too, since we are on the subject of “myths”!

Social media marketing doesn’t work. Users ignore the advertising put up on them, the same way as you vaguely close the banners on the Youtube video you are trying to watch, or skip the ads. Social media marketing benefits big companies because they pay social networking sites a fortune to promote them. For small businesses, social media marketing isn’t any better than Google adwords.
I did manage to find ONE positive review on UWC’s own weebly account

Q. What were you looking for before you signed up with Universal Web Consulting?
A. As a recent college graduate, I was excited to put my marketing skills to use in the real world. While I knew much about print and television advertising, I quickly realized that today’s marketing platform is all about the Internet, a medium I lacked comprehensive knowledge in. I needed a program that could teach me everything about online marketing from start to finish.

Q. As someone who completed the Universal Web Consulting training program, what would you say you gained?
A. Universal Web Consulting really helped me to learn the concrete skills necessary to handle online marketing from every angle. Knowing general marketing theory is great, but if you don’t have the know-how or the necessary tools to put them into action, that knowledge is of little use.

Q. As a student of the program, did you receive enough support?
A. Absolutely. Representatives were always available to help and willing to work through my issues as they arose. I felt that the entire team at Universal Web Consulting wanted me to succeed, so they did everything in their power to help me reach my goals.

Q. Specifically, what were some of the skills you acquired throughout the program?
A. One of my biggest fears was html code. Before I enrolled in the program, the thought of html was completely intimidating. However, after the first few sessions, I realized I had nothing to worry about. The program went at my pace and explained everything very well. Every question I had was answered and my fears were soon dissolved.

Who did they interview? Is it a real person? UWC Corp are no strangers to bogus comments when it comes to promoting their own business. Here are some of them posted on whocallsme.com

I only posted the comments from the first two pages; in total, they have swamped the first three pages in an almost chain pattern. Notice what these comments have in common? Most of them have been written in block capitals, others display a poor level of grammar, most notably where the pronoun “I” is written in lower case. Incidently, jewelries.com is NOT a UWC website, nice try to the commentator who mentioned the domain.
So, UWC Corp, how about some positive reviews from REAL people?
