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

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

UK to tighten law on Cold Calling (and what this means for UWC Corp)

Companies that make unsolicited calls to consumers are to be hit with heavy fines under new laws in the United Kingdom. (click here to read the article)

The proposals will focus on companies which offer financial products and utility companies which use third party lists to target consumers, says the Government.

Powers to impose hefty fines will be granted. Nuisance callers such as PPI firms which gather information from unsolicited calls or texts and make spurious claims over payment protection insurance face fines up to 20 per cent of turnover.

The Nuisance Calls Action Plan, launched by the Department of Culture, has been developed with the help of the Information Commissioner’s office, Ofcom and consumer rights champion Which?

 

Culture Secretary Maria Miller said last night: “Nuisance calls must stop. At best they are an irritation and an unwanted intrusion. At worst they cause real distress and fear, particularly to the elderly or housebound. People need to feel safe and secure in their homes. The rules are clear; people have the right to choose not to receive unsolicited marketing calls.”

Also if you’re in the US and you’ve registered under the National Do Not Call Registry, then UWC Corp are breaching certain laws by calling you. If that is the case, you can file a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission.

But, chances are, you HAVE tried to get that refund, and UWC Corp have refused it. By law, UWC Corp MUST honour their guarantee, however they would make up all sorts of excuses not to honour it, like how you didn’t follow up on their training or you never really gave them a chance.

More likely then not, they will claim the website through which you register is NOT owned by them and is a third-party entity, in which case they are admitting liability for breaching rules against cold calling.

Either way, file your complaint to the Financial Trade Commission. Or if you reside in the UK, complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office.

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

He was asking for $1.95 for the set up and i asked him to cll me back coz a friend of mine just started the same business but not sure if it was with the same company.

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?

UWC Corp charges your Credit card without your consent

Source- http://www.scamexposure.com/scam-report/universal-web-consulting-sold-me-for-1-95-a-three-day-c83819.html

Universal Web Consulting sold me for 1.95 a three-day period. After that, they creative web consulting team, extended all without my consent and began withdraw money($89.85) from my credit card without my consent too.
I canceled my credit card and asked refund my money back. I never give at Universal Web Consulting my credit card number again.

UWC uses fraudulent tactics

Source- http://www.scamexposure.com/scam-report/universal-web-consulting-universal-web-consulting-inc-universal-web-consulting-c48481.html

The company Universal Web Consulting does not deliver what is promised. After paying the $1.95 and then the 89.95 for other “perks” to enhance the services to make money they call and offer you programs ranging from 1700-7000. These programs are for one-on-one assistance and “guarantee” thousands of customers/traffic to increase sales on a retail website they say they will help you set up. They do not unless you buy the programs. Within a week they charged 29.95 for the next month’s web hosting which I was not told I was purchasing. They have widgets for Amazon. However, they are NOT affiliates of Amazon and are only third-party link associated. Also, upon further investigation I found that the link to their site was from a fake news release and fake person claiming to make thousands. Just Google “Kelly Richards home business” and you will see it is a scam. They customize the “news” to be local by capturing your IP address and putting it in the “article.” Then the link to Universal Web Consulting is embedded. Further searching shows multiple reports of fraud by this “Kelly Richards” and her aliases and Universal Web Counsulting out of Phoenix, AZ. Please warn others that this is not to sign up with Universal Web Consulting or else they will be paying for information on how they make money…..not how you, the consumer, can make money. Research on your own and open your own website. It may take more work but it is your money and not theirs!!

How does UWC take your money?

Source- http://www.scamradar.com/reports/2702/universal-web-consulting-scam.html

Universal web consulting is a scam company that take your money and give you very little in return. Universal web consulting will suck you in with claims of earning money and lots of it. They will tell you that they will help you every step of the way with one on one consultation. The truth is you get one hour a month of one on one consultation. The fact is they are too busy to care about who you are or whether your online business will work for you. Universal web consulting sales people become uncontactable soon after they have your money. I was told I can replace my income and pay off my debts with this business. They tell you they are selling you a training package however you get little training and little direction. I spent a fortune and would like to warn you of their tricks. They offer a website with templates and Amazon commission affiliate account. This makes you no money because why would anyone buy from you on your amateur estore. Just as realise you are not selling anything and something needs to be done. Another sales person phones you they have a solution for you and that is to give them more money and they will sent you up with drop shipping suppliers and high profit selling. Universal web consulting make it sound so good and so easy the light bulb goes off and you think thats it I need this to succeed. Then you realize they do not have enough trainers to train you so you get people who read off training cards and give you a couple of suppliers at a time. The problem is most of these suppliers are not very good and you will be lucky to sell anything. Once again UWC is not to be found. The only way you will learn is to teach yourself by research and reading. Their training packages start at $2500 and go up to $5000 for 12 months unlimited one on one consultation. This is a blatant lie Universal web consulting will not make you money they will show you how they make money. Please be warned.
