Mack Michaels Scam (Oh yeah)
I’ve had a number of comments from people saying that the whole Maverick Money Makers opportunity by Mack Michaels is a scam (only to go on and either link their signature to a Mack Michaels affiliate account, or some other affiliate product).
This can be very confusing for anyone starting out in Internet Marketing or Affiliate Marketing – as one of the simplest ways to create traffic is to come up with a dramatic headline usually involving SCAM or CON – because at the end of the day it’s what people seem to read – just think National Enquirer…
So how do you know that the educational product or business opportunity you are interested in is for real or not? Clearly typing in “Mack Michaels Scam” (or whatever product it is that you are investigating) is only going to bring up all these fake reviews that start with a dramatic headline only to go on and try to sell you the product (it’s called Bait and Switch by the way)
First up realise that there is very little on the internet you can trust. If there is a link ANYWHERE in an article or blog to a product – take EVERYTHING written with a large pinch of salt.
So where can you trust?
If you are in the US, check with the state Attorney General’s office, consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau in your area and the area where the promoter is based to learn whether there are any unresolved complaints about the business opportunity or the promoter. (In the UK, try your local Trading Standards office, or Citizens Advice Bureau). While complaints may alert you to problems, the absence of complaints does not necessarily mean the company is legitimate. Unscrupulous companies may settle complaints, change their names or move to hide a history of complaints
If you DO join a program having researched it and then find out that the advertising that led you to make a purchase has been misleading, or that the product itself is not what you were looking for or expected, file a dispute with the company concerned.
If you can’t resolve the dispute with the company, file a complaint with:
- the Federal Trade Commission. Call 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or log on to www.ftc.gov.
- the Attorney General’s office in your state or in the state where the company is located. The office will be able to tell you whether you’re protected by any state law to regulate work-at-home programs.
- your local consumer protection offices.
- your local Better Business Bureau.
- your local postmaster. The U.S. Postal Service investigates fraudulent mail practices.
- the advertising manager of the publication that ran the ad. The manager may be interested to learn about the problems you’ve had.
The FTC works for the consumer to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop, and avoid them. To file a complaint or to get free information on consumer issues, visit ftc.gov or call toll-free, 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357); TTY: 1-866-653-4261. The FTC enters consumer complaints into the Consumer Sentinel Network, a secure online database and investigative tool used by hundreds of civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad.
Me and Mack Michaels: a final note
On a final note – I can say in all honesty that I’ve never had a problem with the Mack Michaels MMM course and that it has genuinely changed my financial situation for the better – but – and here’s the BIG but, I worked at it and worked at it for months before I began to see anything like half decent results.
There were days when I made nothing and I felt like it was all a big con – but I kept going because I actually knew some other guys who were making big bucks. If I hadn’t and I’d have asked for my money back firstly I’m sure I’d have had no problem, but secondly I’d have never got to where I am now.
If you expect to make instant megabucks – Mack Michaels probably isn’t for you.
