Don’t fall for the convincing sales tactics at Joshmadecash.com. It’s just one more template-based sales page in the same category as Coreyhasmoney, Jordangetsgreen.com and others.
What happens is, once you give up your credit card info ($1.97 for shipping is no biggie, right?), you are signed up for a paid monthly membership. On the other hand, why do they need to charge a shipping fee for an electronic product? Rose tells the sad story:
I signed up for the free kit. No big loss @ only 1.97. I never had an opportunity to view the treasure chest information as some have explained above. I waited, and waited and…you guessed it waited some more. I finally opened an account online to view my credit card statement and saw the charges of the 1.97 plus the first charge of 70+ dollars. I filed a dispute with the credit card company and said I was responsible for the first charge. They may be able to get the refund for the second charge. I cancelled my card so I know it will stop. As far as calling the number for the refund, I get nowhere! To all who want to be self employed, this is not a way to get employment. Stay away from these schemes, they are not good for your emotional health! If there is any advice from anyone, I am willing to hear it!!
Pages like Joshmadecash and Coreyhasmoney are just funneling sites. That means when you click on whatever it is you have to click on to learn more, you are sent to the sales page of some flashy make money online program. In the case of Joshmadecash, you’re sent to buy Google Treasure Chest, one of the scammiest things we’ve seen in a while.
Here’s Carol’s story:
Initially this site came up and stupidly after reading this guys statement about how this was 100% trusted and guarenteed and totally risk and scam free, I entered my details. I was then connected to a video presentation about setting up a merchant bank account. An application form for IMAX Bancard Network then followed. At this point I became very suspicious and did not fill it in. However the next minute yet another link appeared re GoogleTreasureChest. It was at this point that the terms and conditions were made available for reading. I haven’t set up any password or acknowledged any membership number but I assume that because I had entered my card details re the shipping cost of $1.97 this could mean they are able to charge my card. I contacted Barclaycard who have blocked my card. This now means that nothing can be taken by anyone. Just tried to ring the 001-888-705-1275-001 but got no answer. Can anyone advise me if I need to do anything else or will what I have done suffice. Can’t believe I’ve been so stupid.
If you want all the dirty details on how these types of sites operate, read Battle of the Putzes. Reading the terms and conditions would be a good idea, too. But even if you do that, these jerks make it almost impossible to cancel. You’re much better of just staying away from them entirely.
