Global Cash Flow — Fraud and cheating!
I had seen the Global Certified Network Specialist thing. And it really looked good because it was recommended from a secondary link from here. One of two businesses that worked, as the poster said it in their posting for no rip off scams.
I signed up for the program, and seen the 'special-once-in-a-lifetime-chance-to-apply-or-you-lose-your-chance-at-more-cash-with -us-than-you-will-on-the (heh) 'standard' (COUGH BULLS%@!)- and-BROKE-applicants splash page, and about 19 clicky links, REALLY pouring on the sell of the lifetime. Man with this program, you can BUY the internet, and get the google CEO's to paint your house too for free.
Well I SHOULD Googled them, but the dollar signs were affecting rational means of thought, and I applied for the VIP program.Halfway through the special offer page, I clicked 'Cancel' and voided the sale, or so I 'thought' happened.
About 30-45 minutes later, one of their sales specialists... (Ya know who he is, John Smith from the Matrix. Number #211) calls me and starts the very well crafted 'sales-pitch' (Cough _HORSE$#!T !!) Not 'REALLY' John Smith, I'm protecting them from ridicule here if I used their real names.
Man I gotta get some tea, i am coughing a LOT Here. After the 45 minute pitch, and including Mr Smith oh-so-kindly-cutting-the-price-to-get-you-and-your-account-## signed up. He had me.
I initially told him I canceled it, but he said he could pull some strings, and try to get me on a scholarship or some #@%! After a try or two, he said 10 minutes later I was declined. I said it was no biggie, and I'll sign up again when time came.
It turns out that the John Smith #211, and everyone else surrounding his cube, ran my credit card through the system 2xs, and APPROVED each time @ $199.00 and change. For a Total of over $400.00 from my account. And the third time was not the charm, as my account had been bled dry 10 minutes later. When John Smith realized my card was empty, I guess he couldn't buy lunch for every one there. Thats when he called me back and said I was declined.
Pretty slick. Until my wife checked the card later and seen my account overdrawn $429.00. After sleeping on top of the doghouse that night and work the next day, I called my bank Wachovia, and needed fraud help with this.
After 6 tries, and after John Smith#211 swearing if I was approved, i'd be working with them. He had no way to the cash. After speaking to the Senior Account Manager, John Smith 148, he assured me he'd reverse the charges AFTER I notified him I tracked the times my card was swiped for 2 approvals, and one decline.
I 3 way'ed the next call with my Wachovia Bank supervisor, and talked to a VERY kind and professional lady there, named Jessica Rabbit. I told her my bank guy was on phone with me, and explained the fragrant OVERCHARGES and timestamps on my account. She Promptly returned every dime to mt account, with my bank guy over her shoulder watching her re-key my cash in my account.
Sure enough, my bank guy says everything is returned, and Miss Rabbit emailed me copies of ALL the transactions, and I'll also be refunded any fees that pop up like processing, and such.
Please be careful with this company, as I didn't get COMPLETELY boned in the @$$ by what happened. Jessica Rabbit, to her Credit, was VERY helpful, and returned what was stolen by John Smith #221. Mebee even fired him.
I can only hope.
