Are You Being Followed Back?

Last Update: April 04, 2018

Hello Fellow Members.

I normally do not communicate a lot in WA community. My apologies for not doing so. I’m extremely busy running other businesses as well. It’s not meant to be used as an excuse. We are all busy in life.

I contribute in other ways that won’t necessarily reflect in the WA community. Those who follow me know I will continue to support them. If they need something, I will help them in any way possible. I try my hardest to reciprocate for everyone. I believe this is why WA exists, to help each other build trust and success together.

I had another situation just occur where a fellow member unfollowed all my social sites. It’s a high ranking member by the way. I have to use tracking applications to monitor the activities of my sites and social media. Unfortunately, there are many individuals outside of WA who will use you for follows, then immediately unfollow you.

I chose not to ask this particular member’s intention because I shouldn’t have to. I took personal time to help this fellow member out. In return, this member chose to use me. For that, I will no longer support this member again. Unless this member takes ownership for their misgivings, then I will reconsider.

I wrote this not to generate a windstorm of negativity. I want fellow members to be aware of this kind of activities that will occur even in WA. Please do not PM me to name these unscrupulous members. It will serve no purpose since members like these don’t matter. Sadly, there will always be individuals in any business where they will look out for themselves only.

Thanks for listening. I hope this will help you in some way. Take care.
James

I had business associates, friends really, screw me over, just for financial greed - I am well aware of what people are capable of, whether we choose to believe it or not.

I don’t understand any of the little games people play yet but why would they use you for a follow? What are their gains? Is it all part of the game?

Thank you for sharing, I m sorry you had to experience whatever they did. If it’s against the etiquette and ethics of the business, why are you not shaming them - or is that not ethical to? Underhanded business - put them out in the open!

Let us know who they are. The problem is we may know them and they may be friends as well?

Hi Wayne,

I've been self-employed for years and had bad experiences.

I'm not naive to the fact bad people like these exist. I wanted newbies and others to be aware of this kind conduct occurs in WA.

Thanks for your feedback.

It’s good to point it out to us newbies but the point is do we want these people around us, especially if we know who they are!

Enough has been said on the platform about scams and ethics, so we are aware that someone is not playing the game properly and we do nothing?

There isn’t a day that goes past where there isn’t one of us that praises the Wealty Affiliate Platform and there are people sitting on the sidelines trying to work a number on us.

They are not wanted here I say.

What would be good, is for someone to list the potential scams and angles that people have worked on others - so us newbies see the bigger picture. It will make us a little more street wise.

I do not condone underhanded tactics in any way, it questions the integrity of the team ethics and levels of trust!

James I apologise if I have made a big issue out of your short message and I state with no full understanding of the system or the implications but my ethics are in tact and they will remain that way.

The platform has been developed on passion and ethics and to continue with this level of integrity is a sure way to continue the expansion of Wealthy Affiliate.

Many of us are promoting the integrity of WA, so we want to be sure that we are bringing members to a secure environment.

Wasting time worrying about these kind of people and how they've taken you for a ride is counter-productive. They're not worth any angry feelings they may engender. Just take a deep breath, forget about them and move on, and continue helping people who value your insights and knowledge.

Unfortunately, this is so true. Not only in WA and social media but in life itself. To you I would say to just let it go and be successful in your own right. Whomever the individuals are will someday realize the error of their ways. Stay focused my brother.
