Just got off the phone from an individual from Success Story from Utah and was told he can help me make $1000.00 per month with his "program" He will be calling again sometime tomorrow from his office. His name is XXXXX XXXXX the phone number is XXXXX Ext 530. Sounds tooo good to be true. Something to do with EBay Powersellers. Has not mentioned anything about money as yet. In reading over these blogs, I am in fear of this opportunity and am looking for counsel. XXXXX XXXXXsen from XXXXXXX.XXX@XXXXXX.XXX
I have only listened to his pitch. Like I said he warns me not to fall for other pitchmens' offers, only his which really makes it sound fishy. He claims all the others only want "my money", not him.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My goal is to answer your question completely and thoroughly and to provide excellent service. Just Answer has built a privacy mechanism into the site that automatically blocks phone numbers typed in the standard fashion. To avoid this censor, please put slashes between each digit when you type the number, like this: 5/5/5/3/4/5/2/5/4/2/I realize it looks strange, but but if you type the number like this, I'll be sure to get it. I very much look forward to assisting you regarding this matter.
The phone number was 8/7/7/8/2/6/7/8/8/9/ Ext 5/3/0/ and his name was Park.
Thank you very much for this additional information.First, you should know that a tremendous number of work-from-home business scams originate from Utah, so the fact that this business claims to be located there is already a red flag.This general concern in mind, Success Story (which actually appears to go by the name "Success Institute") appears to be extremely new, as the Better Business Bureau has only been keeping a file on them for about 40 days. See here: http://www.bbb.org/utah/business-reviews/training-programs/success-institute-in-provo-ut-22314288 This is clearly the same company that contacted you because the phone number is XXXXX same. The BBB has not yet received any scam reports, but very often those take several weeks to come in, since scammers will delay and make excuses and most people don't realize they've truly been had until months down the road.A search of the domain registry for the website reveals it has been registered through a domain proxy, which conceals the true identity of the website owner. While there are sometimes legitimate reasons for registering one's site through a proxy service, this is also the sign of a scam whose perpetrator does not want to be tracked down. A search of the phone number from which Success Institute contacted you reveals that it has previously been associated with advance fee "grant" scams, in which a caller from that number falsely promised to assist consumers obtain "grants." See here for some of the reports: http://mrnumber.com/1-877-826?page=3 and http://mrnumber.com/1-877-826-7889Further, a search of the address that Success Institute claims as its own is connected with a similar company by the name of Accuprofit Business (though the suite number is XXXXX off). The BBB has heard of Accuprofit and has given them an "F" rating. See here: http://www.bbb.org/utah/business-reviews/loans/accuprofit-in-provo-ut-22246622In general, these home business companies sell overpriced, readily available information on how to start your own home business. They rope you in with promises of high income and then force you to purchase unnecessary services and products, resulting in a drain on your bank account--not a profit.If you are truly interested in making money at home, the following sources of information will be much more affordable and useful to you:http://www.amazon.com/Make-Money-Online-Yahoo-Google/dp/0072262613/ref=cm_lmf_tit_5http://www.amazon.com/Internet-Riches-Money-making-Secrets-Millionaires/dp/0814473563/ref=cm_lmf_tit_7http://www.amazon.com/Get-Rich-Click-Ultimate-Internet/dp/0982769601/ref=pd_sim_b_4 If it were me, I would absolutely avoid the "Success Institute," as they appear to be extremely new, are taking measures to obscure who they are by registered their site through a proxy, are operating from Utah which is the nation's capital for this sort of scam, and the phone number they called you with is associated with other scams.I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX this information helps you and I wish you the best.If you do not have any further concerns, I would be very grateful if you would give my answer a positive rating and click submit, as this is the only way I will receive credit for assisting you.
