Everyone - Beware. This company tells you everything you need to make lots of money on the internet. They target people who are older or have lost their jobs. They tell you they want to make you their "success story" but don't believe them. They only want your money. They charge different prices for different people based on how much credit you have available. They will tell you that you are very teachable and make you feel like you can be successful, but the program is confusing and difficult. They also go by the name of Fortune Learning systems, ICI Success, and the newest one which is Apply Knowledge Institute. Believe me when I tell you this is not a program you will want to do. Take a look at all the complaints on the Complaint Board.
I received a phone call from ICI because I had inquired with someone else about working from home. They are VERY persuasive! First, they find out what your credit limits are on your credit cards and then, you speak with the first man (Paul)'s boss, Michael Boss (strange that his last name would be Boss). Michael then sells you on the program by promising that you will not lose any money -- if you do not make it back in 3 months then it will be returned to you. We were told that we could invest at an Aggressive rate of $6, 075; Moderate rate of $5, 015; or Conservative rate of $4, 060. We decided that we would go with the Conservative rate which Michael agreed with completely. I was then connected with Teresa in Compliance who read the sales agreement to me stating that we had three days to change our minds. Then she sent this agreement to Yozons Technology for me to read and sign. I had a problem that I was the only one signing the agreement and questioned it. When Teresa could not satisfy my questions, I was once again connected with Michael. He did not answer my questions. Before I spoke to Teresa, Michael made an appointment with me for my coach and he to call me on Monday, February 15, at 1:00 PM EST. After thinking about this all night, on Sunday, February 14, I felt like this was "too good to be true" and so it probably was not true and decided that I needed to cancel. I went online and checked my bank and my credit card I saw that there was a hold on my account until February 19, which with the banks being closed on Monday, February 15, would be the 3 days. According to my contract, I had to notify them in writing at their Las Vegas office. I sent a letter overnight delivery which they will receive today; however, when I checked my bank and credit card today, ICI has already submitted for payment on both accounts. The credit card company is going to help me dispute this charge, so we will see what will happen. I feel so foolish for being taken in by these guys. It is sad that individuals in these hard times would make their living by taking advantage of people in their time of need! If this gets resolved, I will print a retraction of this complaint. Thanks!!
I had a phone call today 3:00 pm from Mr.John Boss who convinced me to buy the online start your own business for $4, 730.00 usfunds. I remembered hearing that on the recorded telephone conversation that I had 3 days to cancell. I must have contacted 9 people via phone and email (from 5:00pm - 7:30pm) to cancell or at least find out the steps to go about cancelling. After all that I finally got a phone call back from Mr.Boss he argued and flat out told me NO NO I WILL NOT CANCELL YOUR CONTRACT! something must have happened to change your, mind, your scared. I must have told him over 25 time no word of a lie over 25 times "I WANT TO CANCELL". He just said NO! I asked to speak to his supervisor, he said he was the supervisor and that he will call me back tomorrow to see if I am OK, and talk some more.
I was not satified with this so I called the 888# back and talked to yet another person, not expecting to get anywhere of course, but the gentlman I spoke to was very helpfull, he said that he could see that I had called and emailed a number of times and doesnt know why noone got back to me. He cancelled my contract and game me a confirmation# and said that it would take 7-10 business days for the refund to show up on my creditcard.
Should I beleive them about the cancellation, what should I do next? If I wait the 7-10 days (that past the cancellation period)what then if it doesnt refund back on my card. Does anybody have any advice for me?
Any help you could provide would be appreciated.

Thank you internet! After reading all of the complaints against this company we realized we may have saved ourselves over $12, 000 today. The comments by the other posters with complaints against this company "Ivy Capital" and its associated sites (myprofitsite, com; webcentre.com; clickbank.com; surveyclub.com; MediaHub) almost perfectly describe the exact sequence of events we went through. After "George" made sure we "qualified" for the program for over an hour and a half and collected our info, he got his "manager, Chad" to call us back for the real sales job. After another couple of hours wearing us down, my husband starting to research the company while we were on the phone and a few well worded questions about the complaints against his company started to make him squirm. We asked him to phone back tomorrow after we had a chance to discuss. We are lucky to only be out a few hundred (US$) and are now disputing all charges and fees we have incurred. We'll see.
I'm sorry to say we actually almost fell for this scam and see how people who appear to be in difficult situations can get sucked in too. Shame on people who take advantage of others.
AFTER PROMISING A LUCRATIVE BUSINESS THEY SOAKED ME FOR 6880.00. THEY PROMISE TO GIVE YOU A WEB SITE THEN COME TO FIND OUT YOU HAVE TO DESIGN IT YOURSELF WITH THE HELP OF A PROGRAM, THEN THEY SAY YOU GET 6 MONTHS OF TRAINING AND ACTUALLY YOU GET 4(SOMETIMES) 1 HOUR SESSIONS. AND THATS ONLY AFTER YOU WATCH 4 WEB VIDEOS... SO I DID A LITTLE INVESTIGATION ON THIS COMPANY anD THE SO CALLED SENIOR BUSINESS DIRECTOR DANIEL BILLS... it seems that DANIEL BILLS is actually named Jeremy CHENY GOOGLE HIM AND SEE WHAT YOU read about him this man and this company are both liars and scam artists... This company employs him to take your money and then avoid your calls for 72 hours so that you cant cancel your deal just call your credit card company and tell them you are not getting your promised results and start a procedure called a charge back Stay away from IVY CAPITOL OR THE INTERNET SUCCESS TEAM OR YOU TOO COULD BE A VICTIM
