I Don’t Know Why I keep Doing This To Myself
This little gem popped up in my email a couple of weeks ago, so I thought I would look into it. It had that really cool word FREE attached to it, and hey, I am always up for something free. <siggghhhhhh> When will I ever learn? I clicked on it and fell down the rabbit hole into the 12 minute payday scam. Yes folks, another misadventure into the scam zone.
What was my first clue? Well I gotta tell ya, it was one of those websites that is nothing but a long boring video, that talked about how I could make thousands of dollars for free. Of course, they have regular people like me and you who have applied this “system” talk about how great it is and how much money they made in a short amount of time. That’s right, for free.
This word free always intrigues me. I know I shouldn’t believe it and I sure as hell shouldn’t put any money into it. But they said it was free so I watched the video. At this point I know it’s a scam and I’m watching for entertainment purposes. ( These guys are all the same )
How Justin James Made 2,5 Million $$$$
Justin James (that’s his name ) tells his story about how he was working for this guy that had this system. ( Doesn’t tell what it is ) He was paid minimum wage while his buddy went off and lived his life. Meanwhile, back at the ranch ol’ Justin stayed home and made this dude a millionaire.
To hear him tell it, He didn’t put up with that for very long and took off to copy this guy’s system. Needless to say, He was fired. That did not matter to Justin because he was on his way to making his own millions.
Now Justin has made his millions and being the stand up guy that he is, wants to help other people for free. ( Can you feel me rolling my eyes? ) He’s just gonna give his system away, ( Unlike the other fella who was keeping it a secret ) That’s how Justin rolls.
How Much Do I Have To Pay For This “Free” System?
$47 or $37 or finally $9 or something like that. Depending on how many times you try to leave the stupid page. Now this is not money paying for the system, no no no no no.( because that is free remember? ) This money pays for the hosting for your “website” which is merely a landing page by the way. A squeeze page at that.
A squeeze page is a landing page created to solicit opt-in email addresses from prospective subscribers. Definition compliments of Google
I can’t stand crap like this. Doesn’t it bother you?
$47 will get you 15 websites
$37 will get you 10 websites
$9 gets you one website
So just for fun, I went with the $9 option. ( He does guarantee your money back ) I’m not going to waste $47 on something I know right off to be a scam. I was curious what can I say. Here is where I landed.This set up is eerily similar to the Work at home institute set up. The way it looks with the video player and the names of the videos lined up the side. The first thing that happened was I had to sit through two more boring videos. Of course these videos were to “help” me. ( spend my money ) They tried to talk me into buying 10 more websites to increase my profits. When that was unsuccessful, They tried to get me to spend money on what they called a “traffic pool” however that was only for the members who had purchased more than one website. As it turns out the $9 option only gets you one round with the program. ( 24 hrs is my guess )
Traveling through these videos I was assured that The only money I had to spend was $1 for registration with a company called GVO or Global Virtual Opportunities. This is the hosting platform for your websites. The $1 is good for 7 days. After that it is $10 dollars a month.
I did some digging into this company and here is what Warrior Forum had to say about GVO
Notice the highlighted phrase? Ahhhh Haaaaa. Justin and Steven James are already making money off of you. Hey in return you get to do the same thing to someone else.
Next on the list is signing up with Clicksure. These guys wanted me to upload a picture of my I.D. and a picture of a bill to prove I was allowed to work in this country. I didn’t like that at all. Other affiliate programs I am involved with never made me do that. I do believe it is a bit questionable, but then everything about them is questionable.
Then there’s something else you have to pay for that costs $29. You know how you get an email and you spam it. but that sucker keeps coming back no matter how many times you spam it? That is what this service is for. To keep the address of the emails changing so they can keep getting into your mailbox. This kind of underhanded sneaky type of email marketing is aggravating. I’m sure you’ve had this happen a time or two? Do you like it? Can you do it to somebody else? I can’t.
Still waiting for the part where it’s free
Totally gets on my last nerve, And by the way I want to know HOW THIS IS A FREE PROGRAM? Didn’t he just finish telling me that $1 was all I would have to spend??? PTHBBBBTHTHTH! ( That is how I imagine you would spell the sound of sticking your tongue out and blowing a big fat raspberry.)
At this point I had enough. I decided to ask for my money back. They tried to talk me out of it. I was adamant. It only took me two tries. Kudos for that Justin James.
No Recommendation here folks.
This is another sad attempt at extorting money from people trying to earn an honest living on the internet by using a twisted version of affiliate marketing You will get your money back. Only the initial investment for the “free” program Justin and Steve have “given ” you from the bottom of their altruistic hearts.
What you will not get back is the time and effort you wasted trying to make this program work. Please, don’t waste your time or your hard earned cash on this program. They don’t want to help you they only want your money.
