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 Corp EXPOSED

Source- http://www.justanswer.com/consumer-protection-law/7k9qy-started-uwc-corp-ith-everyone-saying-i-ll-start.html

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.

stevewlaw : I hope this information is helpful to you. Please let me know how things turn out. Please don’t forget to provide me with your positive feedback. Steve

stevewlaw : I just found this on Just Answer as well. Please read. I am sorry and wish I had better news for you.

stevewlaw : another blog you should check out…. http://whocallsme.com/Phone-Number.aspx/118882109380/7

stevewlaw : Have you been able to check out those sites? I wanted to follow up with you. And please don’t forget to provide me with your positive rating so that I may be compensated for my time. Thank you so much.

stevewlaw : I would appreciate your positive feedback for my efforts to help you.

stevewlaw : How did things turn out? I would appreciate your positive feedback.

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

IVE BEEN DOIN THIS BUSSINESS FOR ALMOST 8MTHS @ REALLY HELP ME FOR MY FINANCIAL NEEDS…GIRL PROVIDED HER PERSONAL INFO..I HAVE HER COMPANY ID # CUSTOMER SERVICES..THANX UWC….

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?

Beware of UWC’s Phishing Scam

Source- http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/UWC-Universal-Web-Consulting/Phoenix-Arizona-85085/UWC-Universal-Web-Consulting-they-used-my-friends-emails-to-sell-me-websites-and-SEO-serv-884306

Im writing you because all attempts to talk to Amex customer service, dispute department, as well as complaint department were exhausted. This letter regards a charge that I disputed on October 10th 2011 value of $2,667.09
October 4, 2011-Everything started when I received e-mails from my friend Suzanne Chan (see attached copies), with whom I exchange e-mails since 2008. In these e-mails I received, (she?) was inviting me to buy a business website and try, because she already tried it and she is very successful and happy with the money and the cheques she receives every month.

October 4, 2011-At first I was indifferent for (her?) invitation, but when I received the second e-mail from her, because of her persistence, and I know very well that my friend Suzanne is very careful and calculating person when it comes to making money. I decided to give it a shot, and I clicked on the link included in the e-mails (nowadays these links direct you to inexistent websites). And I signed up with UWC Universal Web Consulting to buy a website which was charged to my Canadian Tire VISA Card (see attached statement).

October 5th 2011-The next day, I have received a call from UWC offering me a SEO (Search Engine Optimization) service to promote the purchased website, which I agreed on and I was charged on my Amex Card (see attached statement).
October 4th & 5th 2011-Meanwhile, I kept received emails from my friend Suzanne inviting me to try the website, although I sent her an e-mail thanking her for her referral and asking her for some tips. It strikes me then. I knew that something is wrong. I send her an email asking her if she sent me all these invitations for this website, she answered me saying that her email address was compromised and someone hacked into her email and contacts is sending all these invitations. She apologized and  was obliged to change her email address.

October 5th 2011-Soon I found out that was a scam, I called UWC and I cancelled their services. They accepted and they refund me the website cost and other charges attached to it (see attached statements from Canadian Tire VISA), except the SEO charges, which I disputed with Amex October 10th. In return, Amex sent me a letter informing me that within 6-8 weeks I will be receiving a letter with the outcome of the inquiry. To my total surprise, until now this letter is not received yet, and someone from Amex Dispute Dept informed me that the suspended amount was released to UWC, a verdict that I rejected and I wanted badly to provide my facts to counter and reverse Amex decision.
December 6th 2011-I called Amex in following up on the outcome of the inquiry. Amex email me back saying the case was closed and documents of the investigation were sent on Dec 1st, which I never received. I called in many times December 2011 and January 2012 and the letter still not received. Although everyone I talked to, in Customer Service Department and the Dispute Department promised they will send these documents ASAP. Im outraged, and asking for your help.

The dilemma Im facing now is that with all this delay in receiving the outcome of the inquiry, I have to pay the charge, and I lost the opportunity to re-open the file and dispute the charges again based on facts that I possess: e-mails credit card statements showing the refund, proving that UWC should refund the SEO charges as they did to the original website.

The question is obvious, how can you promote a website which is no longer belongs to me?
In their letter addressed to Amex, UWC did not mention that the website was cancelled and refunded to me.

Don’t give UWC Corp your Details!

Source- http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Universal-web-consulting/internet/Universal-web-consulting-Scam-Bugs-Internet-Internet-829875

Found a very appealing invitation on internet a couple of months ago saying if you want to earn a profitable business online. So I sign up, but when they ask for my credit card or debit card details, I cancel the registration not knowing they have saved my details. A few minutes later someone phone me about it from Phoenix persuading me to try it with only $1.95 for the whole month. With all the promising videos and talks on the phone I gave up and fell into the trap. I developed my websites and promote stuffs for Amazon.com like a merchandiser with them telling me how to do it. My websites looksamazing and very professional. I was then anticipating my earning like what they show in the videos: Once you’re online you’re website will start earning! Well then I was full of anticipation, hoping that this will work and I can earn money from home.

Unfortunately, day after day I check my website’s earning and to my dismay it’s $0.00! Every night I have received a phone call almost from different agent telling me to improve the website. And to improve it I have to pay this and that. They are asking me how my financial situation is and I told them I got no job and I need an income especially towards Christmas. They take advantage of my situation telling me if I invest time and money to my website they will be helping me to reach my goal and dreams, (which all a sweet words from scam bugs of course)! I was so naive to believe those people, and pay almost 400 for an online course to improve my website and providing the guaranteed 2,500 visitors to my website in 6 months. And every night they still phoned me and telling me to give them more money so my website will start earning! I was frustrated of listening to them after a while and I realized I’ve been scammed! Phoned my bank to cancel my card. I don’t know how long they closed my website because it is now inactive!
