I'll never pay for Mentoring Again...

Before returning to wealthy affiliate, I purchased a WSO from Warrior Forum that seemed to be very profitable, according to the members there. I procrastinated on implementing it and then gave up when I attempted to market it and someone asked me for a free copy. They said that an honest review would help me out with sales. I didn't know what to do and contacted the original member that sold it to me. He was very prompt with his response and assured me that I could still benefit from it.
Later on I remained on his mailing list and received different emails about different opportunities. There came a time when he offered mentoring. The terms were 1 hour per week for a month of mentoring and upon completion, access to his subscriber list to market my products. However over time he became too busy and I only received two coaching sessions and no refund and no opportunity to market anything.
I never heard back from him again but of course, I see my email is still on his lead list. He has never contacted me again personally to continue the coaching sessions. I have contacted him on several occasions to set up times to finish my sessions but he failed to show each time we set up for. True he was located out of the US (Canada) but that made no difference to me. Good business is good business. I trusted him up until that point but that trust is gone along with his word.
Not only did I lose $200 but I also lost my trust in an online marketer that never failed at offering quality products. My only other complaint was that the techniques being taught to me were Black Hat Seo and that's something I could have learned on my own. Not to mention, would be a quick road to failure in the long run. I should have known that someone who says they only want to work 15 minutes a day, sleep late, take shortcuts and procrastinate would not be the ideal coach. Lol
You burn me once, shame on me. You burn me twice, shame on me. Never again.

Honestly, everything you can ever need is right here in WA. I used to buy into all that crap and have spent so much money on everything. All you need is to come on here.

They really should change the meaning of WSO from Warrior Special Offer to "Warrior Scam Offer". I used to be on their list, and think...wow, what great things they're offering. After a couple a weeks, i realized it's more of like 'the scam of the week'.

It's an expensive lesson, but it's better than dropping 5 grand on mentoring like some others have!

Thanks for sharing your story.

Lol I like that "scam of the week". Lol I only tried the one wso so I didn't get to see the others. But I'm glad to know now that it's not the best site to use for things like that. Thank you.

Well said. here at WA yucan learn a lot of new things every day. =)

Scam artist using paid advertising to get leads. That's all that is. There are no shortcuts in the I.M. world. lol. You build your website, then you advertise products. Then you get traffic to your website. About as simple as that.
