This Fortune Agency Online review of red flags covers numerous parts of the sales process that you should know about.
Fortune Agency Online Is Using A Conditional Refund Policy
It’s critical that you read and UNDERSTAND precisely how the the Fortune Agency Online refund policy works. Their refund policy states:
“REFUND POLICY and IRON CLAD 30-DAY GUARANTEE
Customers who feel that the Fortune Agency Online is not for them may cancel at anytime. In order to be eligible for the IRON CLAD 30-Day GUARANTEE the customer must have logged into the system, and attempted the program for at least 20 days. If they have not achieved their desired results after trying the program for 20 days they may contact customer support to request their refund. Failure to try the program for the minimum time frame may result in forfeiture of guarantee.
By joining today you will also gain immediately access to a free 30 minute professional business consultation to gain an accurate assessment of your business needs. This bonus gift is itself valued at $199.00, and it’s yours today for FREE as a fast-action bonus! This offer is only available for 72 hours from the time that you complete your initial purchase.”
That’s called a conditional refund guarantee and you should stay FAR, FAR away from any company that offers one. Why, because you have no idea what they mean by “attempted the program” and they don’t define it and questionable companies use weasel-wording in conditional refund guarantees to get out paying refunds.
Fortune Agency Online Offers A “Free” Consultation
Although a free consultation might sound great, it’s potentially the most financially dangerous aspect of the Fortune Agency Online product.
I’ve often heard a huge number of horror stories from people being high-pressured to “invest” thousands of dollars after getting a so-called “free coaching call” or “business consultatino” – usually trying to get them to buy very bad training or worthless traffic, so it’s a BIG, BIG concern anytime I see wording that suggests they might be contacted by phone by some sort of “coach” to allegedly “help” them.
Summary Of Other Fortune Agency Online Red Flags
Fortune Agency Online Red Flag #1) “Work At Home Opportunities Have Been Featured On” claim
Fortune Agency Online uses the claim “Work At Home Opportunities Have Been Featured On” on the first page and then lists these logos:
- Fox News Channel
The phrase “Work At Home Opportunities Have Been Featured On” Fortune Agency Online is meaningless. While OTHER Work At Home Opportunities have been featured on those news channels, that has NOTHING to do with Fortune Agency Online.
Fortune Agency Online Red Flag #2) Security Seals Are NOT Clickable To A 3rd Party Site
Security seals should be click out to a 3rd party verification site – otherwise they are meaningless. Internet Income Wealth Kit uses the following seals that do NOT click out to a 3rd party verification site:
- Verisign Secured
- McAfee Secure
- TRUSTe EU Safe Harbor
You can see that in the video below:
Fortune Agency Online Red Flag #3) Headline #1 Used By Questionable Sites
The headline of the first page of Fortune Agency Online makes the claim:
“Make money and change your life NOW! Within 5 minutes you could be making up to $87 an hour and work from the comfort of your own home!”
Variations of that type of headline have been used by hundreds of questionable sites that all look extremely similar to Fortune Agency Online.
Fortune Agency Online Red Flag #4) Headline #2 Used By Questionable Sites
The headline of the second page of Fortune Agency Online makes the claim:
“If You Can Spare 60 Minutes A Day, We Can Offer You A Certified, Proven Work From Home Opportunity To Make Up To $379 Per Day!”
In this, case that EXACT claim has been used by hundreds of questionable sites that all look extremely similar to Fortune Agency Online.
Fortune Agency Online Red Flag #5) Bogus Income Projection Table
Fortune Agency Online displays a table so that you can imagine all the money you can make by posting links. The problem is tables like these aren’t based in any sort of reality. You see, the only way you get paid in a program like Fortune Agency Online is if someone finds your link, clicks on your link, then takes an action such as buying product, filling out a form (such as filling out a detailed insurance quote form that will allow an insurance company to follow up with them).
In other words, just because you PLACE an ad containing a link, does NOT mean you’ll get paid from doing so. In fact, most of the time you WON’T.
Fortune Agency Online Red Flag #6) Bogus Karl Goodard Story
The exact same Karl Goodard Story has been used across numerous questionable websites. The only difference is the fake name of the person the story is about. I’ve made a small sampling of that in this video for another site just like Fortune Agency Online:
Fortune Agency Online Red Flag #7) Testimonials That Potentially Violate The FTC’s No Safe Harbor Guidelines
On the second page of Fortune Agency Online there are testimonials about income earned:
- “Ernest T.” claims, “Within 1 month I was making over $300 a day and now 2 months later I’m making an average of $450 a day and I’m still keeping my day job.”
- “Sarah & Luke Delfino” claim they made $2,000 in their first 3 weeks
These At Home Cash Money testimonials potentially violate the FTC’s recent No Safe Harbor Guidelines concerning the use of testimonials. Those guidelines state:
“…the use of a disclaimer such as “results not typical” is no longer a safe harbor for the claims made in testimonials. Third, while you may use atypical or best-case testimonials, if you do, you should clearly and conspicuously disclose the generally expected results consumers can expect in the depicted circumstances. Of course, the best practice, and the less risky practice, is to use testimonials that actually reflect what your product or services is likely to deliver. In other words, rather than run ads that give with one hand but take away with the other, it would be better for your ads to give a clear picture of the results a consumer will actually get.”
