Avoid the scams, find out which Business Opportunities actually work

Quick warning if you were thinking of spending a dollar on Keith Wellman’s latest offering.

Read through the Terms and Conditions thoroughly.

Along with Gary Ambrose, Keith has released a special offer for footage of a “$5,000” seminar for just $1.

For this product it is very apparent that┬áKeith has made sure to cover his back after receiving a lot of flack during his “AutoPilotFX” launch a few months ago. The main complaints were about extremely poor customer service.

You can read more about that at the following blog:

[Edit: Apologies folks, the author of the blog has decided to remove all of the posts he made]

By signing your initials on the order form, you are agreeing to join a $40 per month forced continuity program. You are also agreeing to be charged $150 if you chargeback any month from Keith’s company. I’m not sure if it would stand up in court but that’s what’s in the small print:

By purchasing the Breakthrough Profit Creation product for $1 you agree to also sign up to the free 30 day trial of the Masters of the Month program. After 30 day we will automatically bill your card for $39.95 and each month after… There are no refunds on the Masters of the Month DVD. If we at FX Marketing Inc get a chargeback from any purchase or monthly billing we may excecute the right to charge you for the cost of the chargeback as well as a $150 processing fee. If the customer wins the chargeback, the debt is still valid and we may attempt to collect that debt via a 3rd pary collection agency.

Unfortunately I don’t trust Mr Wellman after a bad experience buying a product through his link in 2007. Therefore, I wouldn’t use a normal credit card to buy this from him.

To avoid the forced continuity trap I would use a temporary credit card with a very low balance so any attempt to rebill me would fail.

But, that’s just my opinion.

Read more about that tactic here:

Avoiding the Internet Marketing Forced Continuity Trap

You may well wish to receive the “Masters of the Month” DVDs and so you will need to make sure to use a credit card that can be rebilled at a rate of $40 a month.

I just wanted to make sure that you didn’t miss the part in the sales video which tells you that you will be signing up for a continuity program – whether you like it or not.

  1. Hi,

    I’ve just been reading your review on this Keith Wellman what a [censored] he is.

    You must always read the small print and if you are asked for any money don’t reach for your credit card until you’ve checked out the guy.
    Hopes this helps somebody,
    I’ve been scammed but not as bad as this guy is doing, there should be a law against these sort of websites, get intouch with your local trading standards, I got my money back,the guy was wanted in his home town, I had to send copies of everything to prove it was just rubbish but I got my money in the end.
