Essential PTR — fraud site
Essential PTR is a scam.
1. Payout via Liberty Reserve was apparently made on the 14th of April, 2009. Pay attention to details and you will acknowledge that the site did not even launch until the 15th of April, 2009, which is one day later of the "payment" date.
2. Payout via Paypal takes 7 days (one week) to complete, but again, a payout was made within 3 days of the site launch. How is this possible?
3. The so-called company premise does not exist. Look on satellite viewing on the Internet, through Google Maps. An entire different building is situated in it's place; therefore, Photoshop was used to put the Essential PTR lettering on that picture of the building.
4. When you sign up you get $1, 000.00. Where does this "money" come from? It doesn't exist.
5. $200.00 per click on ads? Wow, we could all be extremely rich without working! There would also be no homeless people anymore.
6. It claims to have Live Support, Chat, and Phone Support when you upgrade. Once you are upgraded, there is no such support. Also, you will not hear back from the "support" team once upgraded, but they sure will contact you within 24 hours when you are a free member. This is to deceive members thinking they have nothing to lose if something goes wrong when they upgrade.
7. When upgraded, you will NOT be able to do Instant Payout via Liberty Reserve. It says "ERROR" you must be an upgraded member, click here. (Excuse me? I am upgraded) It says Membership: Gold. - This is on your profile page.
8. So, I continued to earn and made it past the free member payout of $100, 000.00 minimum, since I could not Request Payout, as even though I was an upgraded member and spent $349.00 USD ($408.30 CDN) via Paypal, it still said "You don't have the minium of payout". (Yes, they cannot spell "minimum correctly")
9. It says 30-day money back guarantee. You will not get your money back. Fortunately for me, I did an esculated disputed claim with Paypal and got every penny back from that fraudulent website. This was one month after I continuously e-mailed the support team asking for a refund.
10. They claim to be professionals in a professional business, yet they cannot spell and conduct proper grammar on the website.
Ten things WRONG with this picture (website) and this list just keeps continuing...
11. When you pay by Paypal and see your receipt, there is no Essential PTR registered company, there is just a first and last name of a so-called individual, with a Yahoo! account. When you e-mail that person, you will not get a response. I tried twice.
12. The "Payout" keeps rising and rising... yet no one is being paid.
13. As a free member, when you contact the support team, you will get very unprofessional e-mails back. There is no introductory part of the email or ending. There is no person with a company position nor any signature. I have never heard of a company that sends emails like this: hello you are now a gold member. send us your free ad at (placed link). you will get free referrals soon. Yes, that was all that had been typed.
14. In the advertisements, they are the same, over and over and over, primarily to suck you into upgrading to get paid because there is no minimum payout. Great scam marketing strategy, don't you think?
15. In one ad, there are two so-called women who have been paid. I tried contacting one by the e-mail provided and, of course, I got nothing. Another individual I know had tried to contact the woman and he received nothing in response. The e-mails were inquiries about the upgrading errors.
16. You are told you will get about 50 free referrals monthly. I got about 12 referrals.
WE ALL NEED TO MAKE AWARENESS OF THIS SCAM, TO PROTECT OURSELVES, OUR FRIENDS, OUR LOVED ONES, AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
IF YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT WITH ESSENTIAL PTR, TERMINATE IT.
IF YOU ARE THINKING OF JOINING THIS WEBSITE AFTER READING THIS REVIEW BASED ON MY ACTUAL EXPERIENCE, THAT IS EXTREMELY UNFORTUNATE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO PUT YOURSELF IN THAT SORT OF SITUATION.
