Worldwide Media Group Online Marketing Review from Detroit, Michigan
This company is a scam. Do not use them. Their promo is simply a way to get your cc number so they can automatically charge your account. The 14 days notice to cancel is also a scam as the product arrives later than that window. They don't charge the $4.95 ship handling only as indicated. The charge $89 for the product. And if you don't pay attention you will be stuck to pay it. These folks are a scam. I'm making a complaint also Amazon.
Reason of review
Problems with payment
Worldwide Media Group - Cancel and they will offer additional services to sweetened the deal...and then set up a trap.
I cancelled at end of introductory offer but their sales expert will convince you to extend with additional services. They then tell you that you can cancel before a specific date. If you are not paying attention on the expiration date offer it will likely be first day of the work week and you can't cancel during the weekends and end result will be a charge for another month. For 5 weeks we did not get any single inquiry by phone or website registration at all...STAY AWAY FROM THIS GROUP...THEY WILL MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO CANCEL...NOW I HAVE TO CHANGE MY CREDIT CARD. WHAT A HEAD ACHE.
Worldwide Media Group in Acres Green, Colorado - I tried to cancel my service
I tried to cancel my service with WMG, and was not allowed to do so, they told me the incorrect billing date and I had to keep paying. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of WMG. They will tell you one thing, and when you go to resolve an issue or file a complaint, it will not be considered. If I had it to do all over again, I would have hung up the phone as soon as they called and saved myself a lot of time and hassle. I would never deal with them again. Screw them. They are terrible.
Worldwide Media Group in Palm Springs, California - Cancellation difficulties
Worldwide Media Group is a complete scam. After assuring me that I could cancel at anytime they would not take calls or accept my emails that I wanted to cancel my service (due to zero leads the first month). I had to cancel my credit card in order to stop billing and then they proceeded to harass me for the following months charges. They are rude and unprofessional. Especially a person who identifies himself as "Bill" (no last names, of course). I was hung up on twice by a person named, "Drew" after being on hold for 20 minutes. I have contacted my attorney and he will talk to anyone else who has had these issues.
Worldwide Media Group in Green Bay, Wisconsin - 17 minutes of pleading in order to cancel my service...
It took 17 minutes of pleading to cancel my service. I had three services totaling $267.00 a month that got me search phrases on Google. The service did work but, not every time. When I would search the phrase, it would only link to my name every 10th time or so. The gentleman who claimed to be the account manager said he could discontinue my service. He then proceeded to harass me about keeping the account. He told me that the service WWMG provided had provided 471 people the opportunity to see our name over 3 months. I told him that for $801.00 I could take out a radio commercial for an entire month and reach 60k people a day. I told him I couldn't justify the cost of this service and please cancel it. He insisted I just wasn't seeing the value, and I wasn't. He went on and on about tailoring my service to fit my needs. I continued to tell him I was not interested, please, cancel my account I would say. It took 20 minutes of pleading and begging him to please discontinue my service. It wasn't until I told him "Look, I'm going to hang up now, if I receive another bill for this I will be calling my attorney." Suddenly the persistent little *** saw his defeat and bid me a nice day. To which I replied, "you have a *** day." What a little ***!!
Worldwide Media Group in Dallas, Texas - World Wide Media Scam
I was told they had a special for $20 per month so I signed up to give them a try, then they said "We will set up a website for you for total of $59", again I said no problem. 25 days passed, I did not get any LEADS so I called to cancel and the guy would not stop with his sales pitch of asking me to stay for an additional 10 days at no cost. On the 9th day I called to cancel and was on hold for 20 minutes, called again and was on hold for another 15, so I decided to call Saturday but they were closed and I also got charged $270 the next day. Yes, they tell you if you decide to continue services they will charge you but good luck getting a hold of them and when you do you get some *** that will not stop at anything to keep you so you miss your deadline. Karma is a ***.
Worldwide Media Group in Orland Park, Illinois - WMG World Wide Media is a scam
This company is a rip off and they don't answer the phone so you can't discontinue the service. I have been trying for several days to call and the company phone answers that their having technical difficulty and call back in half hour.....they dont answer all day, but on the weekends, the voicemail says they are closed till monday, call back then.... and guess what, they dont answer on Monday either. I have tried to cancel for three months, and keep getting the same bs.... just give us one more chance.... and nothing... now I can't cancel because they aren't answering the phone. they promised to put my ad up front... I always found my ad on the side bar, several ads down.... only when I called to cancel was my ad moved up to the front and top..and then only for a few hours before it moved back to the bottom again. When I signed up, I asked to speak to other satisfied consumers and was told that for privacy reasons we can't call them....well, now I know why.... I called some other consumers...they aren't happy either and cant discontinue the service either!!
Worldwide Media Group in Jacksonville, Florida - Scammed
Complaint against Linktech-Worldwide Media Group-Premier Global Media WMG PO Box 3814 Beverly Hills, CA 90212 Ph: 800-730-8801 Fax: 310-601-4240 www.wwmediaagent.com This is a scamming company. History: I received a call on November 30, 2011 from a salesperson promising to have my website listed on the first (1st) page of Google's Search Engine. It sounded too good to be true and it was. Their employee informed me someone would call me the next day to set-up my customized website. I did not hear back from them. The registration fee was $29.99 and I would be able to cancel the trial period before 12/30/2011. When I called and tried to cancel more than three times before 12/30/11 it took about five minutes to be connected with a human being. Once I told them I wanted to cancel they informed me I had the wrong department and they would transfer me to the correct department. An automatic voice informed me the wait would be 29 minutes (each and every time). About 20 minutes into the conversation the phone was disconnected. The company charged me $158.88 on 12/30/11 and I called them and told them I wanted a refund and they pleaded to give them another chance. When they told me my website address I immediately went to it and it had the wrong person (not me) and a phone number for a real estate agent in CA. They said they would change it. I told them I wanted a refund and was informed they had a recording that stated I did say I wanted to continue their service and I would be billed 12/30/11. I explained to them I had been disconnected 3 times and they apologized. I informed them the wrong person and phone number was on "my" website and they apologize and said they would correct it. I again reiterated I wanted a refund and they said they would review the recording. After I ended the phone call I telephoned the person on "my" website and the lady answered and said she had received an invoice from Linktech and she had never talk to the company and she could not get anyone at the company to give her information and was repeatedly disconnected. The next day they called me and admitted there was some confusion and yes they were suppose to call me on 12/1/11 and set-up my customized website. Once again they apologized and said they would Not refund my money and would I like to set an appointment so they could call me back and set-up my customize my website. After that conversation I went to the internet and read many reports about this being a scamming company. Here are some of the website addresses that noted this company is a scam: http://www.ripoffreport.com/search-engine-optimization/worldwide-media-grou/worldwide-media-group-link-tec-6d1d5.htm, http://www.hartventures.net/2012/01/champion-global-medias-robert-smith-is-a-scam-and-a-fraud/, , http://www.ripoffreport.com/directory/worldwide-media-group.aspx, http://www.dnforum.com/f26/world-media-group-criminals-thread-400645.html. I again told them I would prefer a refund and they said no. We agreed on a time and they did Not call me at the specified time but another time that was inconvenient for me and we reset another time. Once again they did Not call me at the agreed upon time but a day late. On 1/5/12 they issued me a credit for an additional month because of their confusion. We discussed the website and they said give them a couple of days and I would have a new website. The appointed day came and I did not receive any phone call. I called two days later and the person once again apologized and said they had been sick and they would begin working on it. The above situation has continued through today. I called them on 1/30/12 and informed them I wanted to cancel my account and, you guessed it, they said I was at the wrong department and they would transfer me to the correct department. An automatic voice informed me the wait would be 29 minutes (each and every time). About 20 minutes into the conversation the phone was disconnected. At that point I began researching the Better Business Bureau websites and found more problems: http://www.la.bbb.org/business-reviews/Advertising-Agencies/Linktech-in-Beverly-hills-CA-100109506, http://www.la.bbb.org/business-reviews/Search-Engine-Marketing/Premier-Global-Media-in-Beverly-Hills-CA-100108895. This is a company that rips people off by a low introductory offer and when you try to cancel via phone they disconnect you. They do Not accept emails but are happy to send them. This letter is going: 1. Linktech's corporate headquarters, if one exists. 2. Better Business Bureau of Beverly Hills, CA 3. The United States Better Business Bureau 4. The Attorney General of CA 5. The United States Justice Department 6. My credit card company to register a dispute. I believe this company will try and charge my credit card again. I have changed credit card number and have informed my credit card company not to approve any more charges from their numerous affiliates. I deserve a full refund and will use every legal recourse to receive my full refund. Michael Thomas 904-866-6777 email@example.com 3924 Dupont circle Jacksonville, FL 32205
