We have found that no matter how carefully we explain risks to people, nothing speaks louder than personal experience.
So here is a partial list of the “I was scammed” experiences we have collected over the past week from comments and e-mail. If you would like to speak up, share your experience in the comments section. You could very well help someone from making the same mistake(s) you made.
Herbalife and Partnerwithpaul.com
I’m worse….I did sign up for herbalife and got screwed! So let’s count…..
$9.95 – package, 39.95 to keep it, $149 to sign up, $88 in product, $118 in product ordered that I did not request (this is full price by the way), $20 for the on line traning………So that’s about $425 that I didn’t have in the 1st place. My husband was laid off in Jan 2009 – still not working, I was laid off in June 2009. So obviously I didn’t have a lot of money to throw at this thing. Once my sponsor found that out I shoved to the back corner. Also, I tried taking the products – I can’t handle them….I have a heart condition and they affect my heart. I tried to explain this to my sponsor and she gets all rude. I asked to return the products and shes mouthing off to me how I’m negative and if I REALLY have a heart problem I should take them. Honestly! Like I don’t know how to take care of my condition! On top of all that – my mail was stolen from my mailbox which had my completed application in it – no according to herbalife I don’t exist as a distributor because they don’t have a hard copy – and to get another app is another $50!
So Yes, stay away! Anytime you head the word ‘Parner with Paul, or Herbalife’ run the other way – hang up the phone, delete the email, etc.
This company’s parent company is Plimus.com
If you paid through Paypal, look at the receipt and it will tell you where the money was sent. I am also one of the people duped by this site. I fully intend to allot a certain amount of money to advertise against this company. I am disabled and am in the middle of getting my disability and can’t afford to be scammed but it happened. These people have no conscience nor heart. I plan to post negative threads(the truth) about this company whenever the opportunity presents itself.
I was looking for a mystery shopper job and I applied for this company called AboutFacecorp. com and well this site is a scam and what they did was copy the companies exact site so when you sign up it goes to them and not the campany. They would want you to shop a western union and rate it. They would send you checks that look real but indeed they are fake checks. Would just like to share that info with you. I also let the company know that this is going on and she relpied and said thank you and check the email that is comes from and she said no company will have live, yahoo, or hotmail as their email address. Just would like to share that info.
Fake Checks from LightSpeed Panel
I called because I was sent two checks in the mail saying I won for taking a moneygram survey, when I asked the man who I called what to do he told me to go to my bank cash it and then call him, I then asked him if I could read off the internet about this lightspeed panel and quoted that the checks were fraudulant and from canada and another man was told to contact fraud department and he instantly hung up on me. Once I said your are a fraud he hung up. I gave him the wrong bank and everything. No personal info. This shit is a scam. They will screw you over. Do not take the bait! I personally find it quite cruel to offer money to people saying they won money when they are very poor and cant even buy groceries. Its like hope and then its smashed. These con artists should go to jail. Dont respond to a man called Mike Daddy.
