OK!! Your comments are NOT needed here! Seems that you are mad because you were fired from your fast food job. I bet it was because you were too stupid to figure out how to clock in. This forum deals with scams. Not ignorant comments like yours. If you can not figure that out on your own, maybe you should shut your computer down before you break it. I am surprised that you figured out how to even turn it on!! Figured it out by accident didn't you??



To the user from the U.K. : Make sure it was Google Money Tree that you purchased. If so, send a private message to ItsEasyTooFixThis. Keep in mind, I am not sure if Google Money Tree makes sales outside of the United States. When you PM ItsEasyTooFixThis, ask them to clarify if they do or not. They may be able to tell you what you need to do to fix your situation. Sorry about the moronic comment from Shiggity. Not every American is that stupid. Hope you can resolve your issue.

If GMT has nothing to do with eM, how do you explain:
1) Almost exactly the same content (large chunks of verbatim text)
2) Exactly the same names and personal details (in particular the "About me" section)
3) Excellent plastic surgery in the photos. Wow, he looks like a completely different person! And so does his wife!

From what I gather on this forum, GMT provides nothing more than information on Google Adwords and Adsense; information that can be retrieved free-of-charge from the internet.

I'm here because someone sent me a link to dangetsgreen.com, asking my opinion. I replied with:

1) Too much useless information. Makes it look like an Amway-style success story. "You can do it too! (But you have to pay us money to do it)"
2) Grammar is generally pathetic, making it look like either a business set up by someone who's grasp of English is Google Translate, or by a scammer.
3) You pay for the information pack from GMT/eM whoever, but then Google is the one that pays you. Why not go straight to Google?
And of course, the real show-stopper:
4) Top hit in a Google search for "dan gets green" is at scam.com.

Fortunately for my friend, I am a cynical sceptic. I was able to identify it as a scam at a first glance, then did research to confirm it.

Also, that GMT representative makes me laugh. The point has been made that he's so willing to help with refunds here even though their customer relations are non-existent. Why? Because if he doesn't offer refunds, he'll get a bunch of law suits on his hands. In particular from the people who receive their information packs after being charged their first monthly fee, or people who get f***ed around with the refund system.

Seriously, if you've been successfully scammed, go to the authorities. A refund might sound nice, but people like GMT deserve to be shut down and imprisoned. Google certainly wouldn't be happy about them using the company name to promote their lack of product either.

Re: BEWARE of Google Money Tree

To Mr. Torrey: Have you tried contacting Emillionaire via email? Try sending your request for a refund to support@emillionaire.com. You are right, the phone numbers for emillionaire are either invalid or the people have NO intention on helping anyone unless you want to buy into their "product". I'm not sure on how to file complaints on companies in the U.K. but contact your bank and let them in on your troubles. They may be able to reverse the charges. There have been claims that by doing so constitutes theft but if you were not informed of the monthly charges until they showed up on your credit card I don't feel it is theft. Also, if you contact your bank to get the charges reversed and you did/do receive their "product" make sure to return it to them. If you keep it it can be considered theft. I wish I had more info to help you but at this moment I do not. I am going to send you a link to a place that may be able to help you further. Check your private messages.

Probably won't find the actual owner/creator of Emillionaire because they use unethical buisness practices. They hide and hope they can get as many people as possible to buy their so called "product". Any real buisness owner will make themselves known.

Re: BEWARE of Google Money Tree

In response to your commentary...B.S. They are very deceptive. You do not receive any kit, and when one signs up at the worst time 12/21 and they were closed 12/24 and when you try to call on 12/25 they keep you on hold forever! Thinking that one has seven business days to cancel I called back on Monday only to find out I had already been charged the 72.21.. They stated that it was 7 days even though they were closed for 4 of those days! Thank God my credit card company reversed the charges, as not only do you not receive a kit, they deceive you in the initial email into thinking they are affiliated with Google when they are clearly not! So, you saying we are lazy...not true. We are unfortunately too trusting. Thank God also, there is order in the credit court.

Re: BEWARE of Google Money Tree

Registrant:
eMillionaire
4644 West Gandy
Tampa, Florida 33611
United States


The problem with that address is that it has been registered to MANY different companies by many different owners, with many different websites. It is a strip mall type of complex.

http://www.whitepages.com/search/Rev...caltime=survey

The "creator" of Emillionaire is still hiding. If not, he would have contact info availible to contact him directly. There is not any way to contact "him". Just ways to contact companies that he has been involved with.

http://www.whitepages.com/search/Fin...caltime=survey

The only listing for Cali Kellywood is no where near Florida.

Cali Kellywood
6827 Valley Maple Dr
West Jordan, UT 84081-3378

The only buisness registered is registered to her husband Franklin.:
"Xyrix Tech Controls" Their buisness consists of:
Contracts and Grants, Electronic control systems.
They make sure that you can not trace them down to an exact location. You would need a court order to locate their exact location because they do not have it listed anywhere.

Re: BEWARE of Google Money Tree

Don't even LOOK. I am NOT Kidding!
Hereís my experience, judge for yourself.
I saw this ad and went to have a look, thought, "Hmmm... maybe." I filled in the first page of the form (including phone number BIG MISTAKE) went to the next page and when money was mentioned, I searched to see what the deal was with this outfit and Google,( which turns out to be NONE ). I ended up on this site and after reading the posts, proceeded no further with this junk, closing the window and forgetting about it.
Since then, I have had countless phone calls, starting at before 8am and continuing to near 6pm. The first one, I politely told them I no longer was interested and hung up. Thereafter I said there was no one of my name at this number, but STILL they keep on calling. I can tell you that two of the numbers I have are cell numbers;
1 -201 - 918 - 3074

1 -201 - 918 - 4824

(and through some, shall we say, 'Friends" of mine, I know that they are registered in New Jersey, but not being used from there). Now hereís a piece of advice for anyone who gets these calls and wants to fight back:
The cell call will not end until YOU hang up. So, if you have mute on your phone and don't mind tying up your line for a few hours, simply mute the call and leave the handset off the hook. All the time you do this, their line will be tied up and they are paying, not only for a cell phone call, BUT roaming charges too. Believe me it's not hard to run up several hundred dollars worth of calls in a day by doing this!

But AGAIN I EMPHASISE THIS -
AVOID
GOOGLEMONEYTREE
LIKE THE PLAGUE

I too received numerous calls from them. I couldn't tie my phone up like that but when I informed them that the calls were being recorded as evidence for a lawsuit, the calls magically stopped. Never got another call from them. Since they did stop calling, I destroyed the recordings and did not continue with the lawsuit. No need to sue them when all I wanted were the calls to stop. I do have a question for anyone that wants to answer it: First, set all of your emotions about GMT aside for a moment then read the following question. If when you were filling out the billing info on GMT's site, and three words were displayed next to the "send my kit" button that stated "monthly charges apply", would that not be all that was needed to inform you of the charges so many people are surprised and unhappy about? I know that if those words were there, I for one would never have made comments here about a "scam". Please read the question well before you respond. It is not an attempt to anger anyone. I am just curious if those words would have been sufficient enough to alert people to those charges. It would be nice to see those words added to their site.

Re: BEWARE of Google Money Tree

I got all of my money refunded to me thanks to "ItsEasyToFixThis." All I did was give him my full name and my city and state and he took care of everything. It really is that easy to fix. I was charged 72.21 twice and I just checked my bank account and it was all refunded back to me. Even the 3.99 for the shipping and handling or whatever.
