UWC Corp SOLD WEBSITE BUSINESS AT HIGH COST WITH NO RETURNS IN 3 YEARS Phoenix Arizona

Source-http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/UWC-Corp/Phoenix-Arizona-AZ85027/UWC-Corp-SOLD-WEBSITE-BUSINESS-AT-HIGH-COST-WITH-NO-RETURNS-IN-3-YEARS-Phoenix-Arizona-1253721

I responded to an article on Yahoo, Claiming a full time income could be earned by working from home on-line

I was called at 9.00pm (GMT)by a skilled salesperson who pushed extremely hard to sell me a package costing approximately US$1200, when I hesitated, he tried to reduce the price which eventually became US$1000

Now looking at my account I have paid $1000 +$700 +$995 all for one thing, “Training package” $2695 seems excessive! when so many ‘free’ packages exist

I did receive Live traing over the telephone but that merely followed the on-line package provided; other included items were ‘Traffic (5000) and ebay super seller, neither of which has had any impact

My total expenditure is now $28140, with zero income after 3 years, UWC  have now stopped billing me for hosting fees ($29.95?month) as a gesture but I am still $28140 out of pocket with no prospect of retrieving any of my outlay.

I cannot even sell the website. nobody will buy a site with zero income

Promises of a regular reliable income have only put more money into the account of UWC

UWC’s Fraudulent Ads featured in Pop-ups

Alert: International Business Times promoting scam advertising – Theresa Andrews, Melissa Johnson.

In May I mentioned the Work At Home scam advertising. Today I was opened an article on International Business Times and as usual two windows pop up. A Facebook like page which is simply annoying. I accept annoying because I’m receiving a free service. There are advertising links all through the pages which again is all part of receiving something for free. However what caught my attention was the pop-up which appears in the background.

Yes it is the same photo of a mother and child I recognised from the previous work-at-home scams. The trouble however is the media site International Business Times is being used as a vehicle to spread scams and that could easily trick some people. In the past I’ve seen many people have their browser hijacked by clicking on ads even in Google, but now the scammers are getting their material promoted on media sites which is a worry.

If you see an unexpected pop-up even on a legitimate site, you now need to treat them with suspicion.

UWC Corp’s fraudulent newspaper articles

Source- http://www.websitebabble.com/general-money-making-topics/25129-anyone-heard-uwccorp.html

because I read an article in the paper that advertised a woman who makes quite a bit of money from hm working only about 10hrs a wk using an affiliate site and I guess posting the url anywhere else she could, I thought I would join up and give it a try. UWCcorp home page didnt give a lot of information before you actually joined up (did give a free trial for about 5 days though) however that didnt really give me a lot of time to figure out that they only give you very basic info to start with, and then start to try and get you to buy one on one training, and purchase access to their resource library and tracking resources and a few other things getting quite pricey with different packages ranging from $300 to about $3,800. The website hosting itself is already $39.95 p/mth. So I created a very basic affiliate site thinking it would take off right away (yes I am a complete novice when it comes to this) and have not signed up for any training packages. I dont think my site has had any traffic and its made no money in the couple of weeks its been live, so I have been doing research on the net and getting some quite good information (for free I might add). I have realised that SBI seems to offer quite a bit of what UWC is trying to sell me on top of the website hosting and SBI charge less?!! Has anyone heard of UWC before? Is it a scam? lol
I didnt even realise when I started that unless I had a great idea for a niche market and some good content, it was unlikely the site would take off! So I started out with cosmetics as every girl loves that right so its got to be popular?! yeah but I think maybe too popular?!!! so Im actually thinking of shutting down the website until/if I actually get a great idea of something to write about and sell lol
Thank you Lisa to some really good basic info that may have saved me a headache and a lot of time wasted!

Lisa’s reply-

It makes my blood boil when I see companies fooling people into thinking you just post a link everywhere and you’ll make money. If you want to have any kind of success online today it’s about building a following of people who trust you.

What the company failed to explain is that you need to learn the fundamentals of marketing a website and you need to give people a reason to trust and value your content. So there’s no way to do that if you’re just posting links and not building up credibility.

Either that woman who supposedly succeeded is made up or she’s not telling the entire story. There are many ways to make money online but no matter what you’re doing, it starts with providing useful content (or a product) to a specific niche/audience. Build up trust by helping and providing info that is relevant/useful to them. Then monetize that traffic by selling products that relate to what they need.

It’s a much more transparent model and you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on training.

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?

How over-inflated are UWC fees?

Below is a report submitted on Ripoff Report on 05 October 2013-

I was trapped by UWC Consulting with the false promise that I could make money online by subscribing for the website for only US $ 1.95 No one bothered to inform me that there is also training cost involved.

On the very second day, marketing consultant Fran Thomas called me that I have to pay 500 US Dollars for imparting me training. However, when I declined to make this payment in Lump sum, she offered me 250 US Dollars that would be a one time fee but did not disclose the same information on their invoice that did not mentioned that this is a one time payment.

She ecouraged me to get started from today i.e. Saturday, October 5, 2013. I was so naive that I made the payment from my credit card and she entered my credit card verification number that was on the back of my card.

She also committed to impart excellent training but once I made the payment, she just asked me to review the training material and customer support would be provided to me online.

She also told me that $ 29.95 would be automatically deducted from my credit card every month by webhosting services and it has nothing to do with the UWC company.

When I tried to contact the customer support department, voice mail message informed me that they are open through Monday to Friday between 9 am to 5 pm. When I discussed with my wife, I was fortunate that she searched on internet and shared with me all the Ripoff Reports indicating that this organization is a big fraud.

I would request you to get back my hard earned US 251.95 dollars that is equivalent to Canadian 268 dollars. I am a new immigrant and every penny is important for me.  I would also request you to impose heavy fines on these fraudulent companies and abolish them from the scene as it is creating a very bad image of US and Canadian companies.

The author of this report brillianly illustrates the common tactic used by the rogue salesmen/women at Universal Web Consulting to trap you and your hard earned money by supposedly reducing for you the exorbitant fees for their “plan” packages, making out that they’re offering you a deal you can’t miss. As I recall, the “plans”, which include guaranteed traffic, search engine blast and training, were the “Standard Plan”, “Advanced Plan” and the “Deluxe Plan”. The representative also mentioned an “Economic Plan” when I queried if there was a cheaper plan than the “Standard Plan”. I don’t know if she made up those “plans” from the top of her head.

I and many others and probably you were conned out of thousands of dollars, some even TENS of thousands. Evident of the above report, they’re also happy to accept payment in hundreds of dollars, which begs the question; just how over-inflated are the fees they normally charge?

Update – Below is a comment posted on the forum site whocallsme.com on 24 November 2010-

Hi guys just wanted to say i Think I did see the advertisement on facebook and was interested in work at home I registred but then I lost interest, it would be like 5 days ago and then I got phone call today so I agreed to pay 2 dolllars to se what this is about then i was trying to set up the website then i had phone call again and the person asked me to how am I doing, i was offered training for like 2400 $ basic package, I was in complete shock as I cannot to afford to pay such a money then the person lowered money to 695 for some budget package I still couldn’t take it, then the money was lowered as low as 150 $ but I wasnt happy about it and as much as I did read already here I have a bad feelings about this and I thik it is a really SCAM, feel sorry for all people who did pay some money to them, I made similar mistake when I was Younger, good luck to get Your money back.

UWC “Training” a waste of time

Source- http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Universal-Web-Consulting/Phoenix-Arizona-AZ-850/Universal-Web-Consulting-Not-a-good-company-to-get-involved-with-Training-substandard-F-943951

From my own personal experience, I was originally looking for work and stupidly excepted the promises of this company, they stated that they would get me earning money. “That on hindsight was the wrong thing to believe” after a period of working on this website they sold me which incidentally was full of banners from affiliate links from Amazon, Sony etc being a complete newbie to the web I knew no better, but quickly learned this was not going to work. I phoned the sales rep who assured me that all I had to do was follow the training in the back office this I did and it got me nowhere so I phoned again with the sole intention of stopping the subscription but gullible me listened to them.

The next thing they threw at me was if I expected to start earning any money I would be advised to take there one to one training package which would put me on the right road and I would then start to see commissions the one on one training consisted of one session 15 minutes long per month and the excuse I received was they had a shortage of trainers and lots of people to train I queried them and stated that that was not my problem as I had paid them good money on the promises they made and requested a refund.

An hour later I had someone on the end of the phone stating that he was one of the upper management offering me a renewal on my domain name free of charge and he would stop the monthly payments until I began earning which they would ensure happens.

I went along with that but on thinking about it if they were doing this to everyone else the amount of money they were getting under I deem as false pretences, then this would not be a short fall to them.

I haven’t heard anything from them since and the very last time I spoke to them they said they had no recourse in refunding me because of what they had given me. that to me was just a way of pacifying me by doing what they did they where actually admitting liability.

I since have read of other people getting short changed by them, so I would suggest that anyone thinking of going with this company to think again and leave them well alone!

Because I am UK based I can’t use the BBB as their form does not accept English post codes, Telephone numbers, or state so other than venting my frustrations out here I am stuck! And they must have laughed all the way to the bank. some other smuck ripped off.  

*The complainant posts a further statement to his original report-

As I stated in the original report I have tried to get my money back from this company and they have responded negatively, after spending money I did not really have and having to borrow most of it to the tune of nearly a $1000 on the product web hosting, domain name, website, and rubbish training that they had the audacity to charge for.

I being green and believing them to be a genuine company who stated that they would not risk their companies reputation by not giving me a good service and guidance in making a success of the so called business they had sold me into They are very good at taking your money and leaving you to your own devices.

Their training consisted of telling you to search the internet for other peoples reports on marketing, showing sites that they claim where making good money that actually had broken links to the products that where supposed to be making the sales. stating that the website I had created was excellent by buttering me up this way they must have thought I would leave them alone, if they had only given some constructive criticism and proper guidance, proper training and a more honest approach not B.S their reputation would not get a kicking as it has, dishonesty seems to be their rule.

I am only stating the above to make others aware.

I really would like to get My money refunded but not being a US citizen I am finding it really difficult to find an organisation that would have the knowledge and representation to approach them on my behalf, the better business bureau are unreachable unless you reside in the United states and I now feel that the company has had my money B.S’d me on what they had given me.
