Essential PTRfraud site

1
S Review updated:

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.

    Hi There shopbox,
    Like you, I too Upgraded and am having the same problems you have had, but suprisingly, I cannot seem to find any negative reports on www.scam.org or other scam websites, very odd.

    Hi Friends

    I had Upgrade My account Essentialptr.com on 03-Jul-2009 is (Unique Transaction ID #2K010608X166xxxxxx) But They have Not Upgrade My account till 2/8/2009

    As they have said on your web page on FAQ about (Account are updating to upgrade usually 14-24 hours after made payment, ) (If you make payment using PayPal or Money Bookers we always send confirmation e-mail after upgrading your account.)

    Type of upgrade: to Gold membership
    Payment Method:"PAYPAL
    Paid to : *PASALB25AA".

    Name:
    Pascal Albisser (The recipient of this payment is Non-U.S. - Verified)
    Email:
    [protected]@yahoo.com

    Can anyone tell me what should I do now?

    Pascal Albisser (The recipient of this payment is Non-U.S. - Verified)
    Email: [protected]@yahoo.com

    When I upgraded, the email was some boycot yahoo account. Notice they use free accounts, much like all scammers use? Well, now it seems they are using a new email to collect money from victims.

    Paypal put a block on that email and so this is why they keep changing emails. You must contact Paypal and do an escalated dispute to get your money back because they will not refund you. Paypal will block their email yet again because my dispute with Essential PTR will, or should, be on file.

    Another reason this is a scam I must add:
    That laptop 50% chance of winning. There is no upgrade prize! No one has won anything. This sucks people into upgrading.

    There is a lot of money generated to keep this sick business going and it only continues because we choose to ignore it. Post all over the internet and help others avoid the costly mistakes they may be about to make.

    The scam site should have gone bankrupt and shut down already.
    Why are people NOT googling before they sign up to something or send money?

    When I googled, upon joining, there was just the one fake testimonial and fake paypal payment, so I joined and upgraded but lucky for me, Paypal had my back and gave me a refund of $349.00USD.
