    Hi, All of the information above are accurate.
    Earlier this year I worked to this company as an SEO.
    Yup, We have a lot of works there but as I observe, not all of the telemarketers are great in speaking English.

    But when I found out their fishy business in the company, I decided to resign.
    People should take the right actions right now.
    If you were to file a case then file it.
    Just send me an email, I can help even in a small way.

    Great I.T. People don't deserve this company.

    Note: The company is not really based on the America, it is in the philippines.
    As of now, the business is as usual.
    TIP: Right now they changed their company name to "One Contact".
    Location: Julia Vargas St., Ortigas, Metro Manila
    Building: Global Antel Building...

    For more info: email me to g_circo@yahoo.com

    To Whom It May Concern:
    I was a victim of Fruit Engine scam. I sign up with Fruit Engine after crazy amounts of telemarketing calls. It was literally 5-10 time per day for a month. I finally talk with them and I’ll tell you, they were very aggressive; so aggressive that it turned me off the first time we spoke. The same lady I spoke with called more and because they where so persistent I finally said let me see what they offer.

    O My, All the lies that lady told me. She told me everything I wanted to hear to take my money. She told me that they already did a analysis on my website and that I am guaranteed to be on GOOGLE first page within 2-3 weeks and if I am in anyway unsatisfied with their services I will get my 100% MONEY BACK guaranteed, so please give them a try. They begged me. I should have known that if its sounds to good to be true then it’s not true.

    I finally signed up and because my contract sent by email stated that I will get a refund, I went on with it.

    Since day 1 after paying, I have been facing so many obstacles with Fruit Engine that cost me more money then I planned. I felt like all of these obstacles that I’ve faced should have been addressed before Fruit Engine took any money from me. Fruit Engine told me that my SEO work and everything was done through via email. They have big game to milk all your money until you find out they are a FRAUD.

    The fake sales lady view my website from the beginning and told me nothing about the horrors that comes next. I finally called them about a update. Of coarse I can’t reach them on their bogus California number because in actuality they are located in Manila, Philippine misdirects customers and pretends that they are in the US. The real companies, staff, are located overseas and just do telemarketing with US telephone numbers. They called so much in the beginning before I signed up, what is going on now since they have a hold of my credit card..

    Finally a month later, they sent me and email (no phone call), with some craziness about my website that should have been told to me before I paid my money. Plus I was under the impression that SEO stage was completed. These are the chain of events. They bought a new domain name without my consent, they said they will need to charge my card a monthly hosting fee for that domain, I was told that I need to redesign my company entire website which I needed to pay more money plus pay a ridiculous monthly fee for hosting. Ok, I now I am being bamboozled by Fruit Engine out of more money. All these charges were taking out of my account unauthorized. They basically paid for all of the above using my credit card information without me knowing. I cancelled my account with Fruit Engine and attempt to receive a refund of all funds paid to them for no work that was done. They also said in order to start SEO all of these things will need to be done. But I received a email that SEO is complete. FRAUDS, they don’t even remember the scams they are playing. They are now avoiding me, plus have charge me twice more since I’d cancelled my account.

    I called and emailed a writing cancellation Stating:

    “Reason for cancelling is because I am not comfortable that Fruit Engine even knows what they are doing. I feel like I have been hustled out of my money. In the last couple of weeks I have paid this company $1, 100 and no results yet just issues that keep costing me more money while you all are charging my card unauthorized charges for service I never wanted. I have been calling to resolve this issue and no answer and no phone call back. Please let me know what is going to be done about this situation.”

    This is a fraud company and many have been victim of this fake company in the Philippine who claims they are located in California. I received two phone calls from people in the Philippine that have work with this company and stated the reason why they stop working with this company is because they did not like the way they are scamming people. I also have a recorded conversation with one of their ex employees stating that they are a fraud and that they will help me, plus the many others get their money back and take further action so that no other vulnerable people that knows nothing about the internet scams fall victim to this horrific company.

    Your help and response will be greatly appreciated.

    This SEO company failed at every step of the SEO process. The keywords unprofessional !! Low level development team !! Horrible customer service !!
    Absolutely HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!. Horrible experience. Cannot be trusted at all. They are liars and thieves!!! They will take your money and never deliver what they promised. on our busy season of year, My prospective customers cannot find me because Fruit Engine is unable to consistently keep my site up. our website down from February last week until May 8. I call over 20 time and emailed to Tracy & Bianca, no one called back and follow up. They try to be all nice from beginning when they are trying to sell their service but once you sign their electronic or any form of contract your in deep... Do not use them since they are not honoring their own contact. I have not seen any improvements on my site traffic. if you are a victim, you need to . 1. Cancel your credit card 2. if you can able to take picture all of your keyword on Google & Yahoo, that is good evidence, also keep all your via email. 3. File a complaints to
    1.Federal Trade commission WWW.ftc.gov
    2. protecting consumer WW.oag.ca.gov/consumers .

    I don't know what are these people saying, only one person is doing these reviews. My experience with Fruit Engine is totally different from these.

    As a business owner myself, I could say that Fruit Engine hold their promises of helping small business owners like me succeed. Everyone at Fruit Engine has been very helpful and efficient. My project leader, Jeff together with other consultants helped me throughout the SEO process— explaining what the processes to be done are and about keyword research for my business. Since, I’m running an interior design business, our website online visibility is very important to me. I came across this SEO and skeptic at first, but I tried and now I could say that made the right thing by trusting Fruit Engine for my marketing needs. After some time, about 3-4 months, I got the result I wanted –a position in 1st Google page.

    One thing comes in my mind when I see these complaints – they are just ranting designed to discredit Fruit Engine. Including myself, Fruit Engine helped countless websites go out from unseen corner of search engine into spotlight that Google algorithm will recognize. I can’t believe why these reviews were appearing. Surely, they were individuals who have no understanding of SEO operating procedure. SEO companies were not fast food companies who have crews ready to deliver you a hotcake right in front of your table. Nor they are not drive thru restaurants wherein you can pick your Mcdonald fries. You have to wait to get results. It takes months before your site gets its right place in Bing, Google, yahoo, ask.com. As for these dudes making their rants, stop it, it won’t help you. Come on guys, SEO isn’t Ronald Mcdonald! Grow up!

    I worked their before and had been out of work now because of studies. The individual who posted these biased or misleading reviews had been reprimanded several times and not doing his/her work. Clearly biased comments to fool readers. Think twice before reading his/her review. Stop making lies and be mature enough to tell the truth.

    If there is any analogy I would describe FE, I compare FE into a “turbo” for every feature that a website or computer has. Their SEOnization process time is much faster than other companies offering the same services. Other SEO companies go for a length of 8 months while FE provides result within 3 to 4 months, and that’s a huge difference. And that, I speak from my experience when I had my 5 paged website optimized

    I and my husband Eddie are surprised to see these negative comments about Fruit Engine. In our own experience, I could say and confidently say that we are satisfied so far with the services offered by the company. Our project leader is such a sweetie and always makes sure that our needs and request are accommodated. I am also grateful that these guys educated me about SEO and the process which I was not aware of at first.

    The subject about SEO really amazed me. The fact that the process is so complicated and amazing at the same time gave me the reason to search more about SEO. I learned a lot and I found out that SEO processes does not work like magic! Making your website viewable to the global populace won’t happen overnight. Building links takes a lot of hard work. Learning the process with the help of my PL and online articles gave me the understanding of how the works are done. Waiting and patience are also very important. After 3-4 months propagation after our site was launched after all the changes and troubleshooting, we surprisingly got the first result of our visibility and GUESS WHAT, our site can now be seen on the top page of Google.

    I hope my review would help FE to get the review it deserves. And I hope that our relation will last for a long time. Thank you and have a nice day to all.

    As a satisfied customer for Fruit Engine and who used their website design services, I can say that this company gives you results you want. I got a fully and beautifully made website by the talented hands of FE web design artists. More than that, their search engine optimization team helped my page land in the premium Google rankings. I can’t say more but satisfied results. More than that, I shout my praise to this company for that successful outcome I always wanted.

    Witty and clever name Fruit Engine, and also they are clever in making websites and optimizations. It’s no wonder they successfully ranked our sub-pages starting from contact page into services page. Love their color, GIF animations, and the overall page layout. And there are social media links to facebook and twitter and the flawless grammar of their content writing. Willingly will recommend them or use their services again.

    Such surprising that this review board have complaints, can’t believe that. I bet these people who had written these nonsense mumbo-jumbos didn’t cooperate with optimization service or simply ignorant about the process. For me FE has done a tremendous change—positive change to my business. From website design to SEO optimization, I could say that FE has been excellent to me. I’m speaking from my own personal experience. #homeinspection

    Fruit engine helped us optimize every of our pages. The results came in effect much more faster compared to other competing SE optimizers. And what is great with them is their package- much affordable and high quality. Wanna recommend or use them in the near future.

    Two thumbs for Fruit Engine, this company deserves an A grade for fantastic work. Among the seo companies, I rate them high because of their professional written contents and website. Their finished website looks very elegant and colorful just for an affordable price. I enjoyed just how they made my personal business page exactly conforming to what I am expecting.

    Working with Fruit Engine is full of pleasure. They work with passion and very good at web designing and content writing. Unlike other companies, FE does not utilize high sales technique, just only those needed to make the job done. I got results with FE.

    Those are laughable negative comments for FE, when they can make your search engine ranking increase in rankings. From my experience, they deliver their promise on time and always complete. Nothing to say more about FE, they helped me in SEO. I just love the way they optimized my site.
