Home Revenue System review and analysis of sales page (AVOID)

This Home Revenue System review and analysis of the sales page covers a few items you may want to really think about if you’re considering purchasing Home Revenue System. Based on the red flags I’m seeing I would recommend you avoid Home Revenue System from Brian Bailey.

Here are some of the red flags:

Red Flag #1: Home Revenue System claims that it has been “Voted #1 Work From Home Opportunity Online”

Reasons why this is a red flag.

  • Home Revenue System doesn’t say “what organization” voted them the “#1 Work From Opportunity.
  • Historically, sales pages that make this type of claim have a poor reputation.

Red Flag #2: Home Revenue System uses stock photos for testimonials.

One of the HUGE red flags these days that you can find on websites is the following disclaimer at the bottom of many sales pages:

“The testimonials on this site have been remunerated and stock images have been used to protect the privacy of these individuals.”

One very significant reason that these types of disclaimers started being used is because it has become incredibly easy to identify fake testimonials by establishing that a site was using stock photos. Hence, to solve this potential problem of getting caught using fake testimonials, some websites began using that disclaimer.

Now here’s where it gets interesting and troubling from a consumer’s perspective. The only way that law enforcement can establish if the testimonials used with stock photos are actually real or fake is to file litigation against the company in question. However, having worked with the FTC on a case in which they were hunting down various fake testimonials it would be shocking to me if they thought the placement of the “substitute photo” disclaimer would be considered sufficiently clear and conspicuous enough to make sure that consumers FULLY understand that the photos are stock photos.

Now, that doesn’t mean that the testimonials on a site that makes use of stock photos are always bogs, however, it should definitely be considered a HUGE red flag when you run across these types of testimonials, because such a LARGE AMOUNT of questionable sites are doing this and have done this over the past few years.

If your’e interested in checking out some of the stock photos that HomeRevenueSystem is using, you can take a look at the links below.

Red Flag #3: Home Revenue System has placed it’s “paid testimonials” at the very end portion of the sales page.

If you look at the very bottom of the HomeRevenueSystem.com sales page you will notice that there is a disclaimer at the bottom that states:

“The testimonials on this site have been remunerated”

Once again the problem here has to do with the actual placement of the “paid testimonial” disclaimer itself. The Federal Trade Commission’s guidelines state that important disclaimers of this type need to  be clear and conspicous – in other words consumers should NOT have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to identify this type of disclaimer.

Red Flag #4: Home Revenue System makes use of testimonials that potentially violate the Federal Trade Commission’s “No Safe Harbor” rule.

This could very well just be a case of legal sloppiness. The problem is that the FTC recently implemented the “No Safe Harbor” rule for testimonials which David C. Vladeck – Director, FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection describes as follows:

“…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.”

In other words the disclaimer made by HomeRevenueSystem.com at the bottom which states, “Testimonials are not typical of most results” could indicate a potential violation of the new FTC “no safe harbor” guidelines – especially since it display a BIG BOX with a testimonial from “Holly R.” which states:

“Before I started this program I was a wife, mother, and the owner of a child care company.  I was making about $1500.00/mo with that company.  Since beginning with HRS, I have been able to make $5130.77 and counting, so my income has gone way up!!!”

Red Flag #5: Home Revenue System disclaims associations with entities it never even mentions in its sales letter.

“Home Revenue System is not affiliated with, endorsed by or in any way associated with Forbes, Entrepreneur, Profit. Home Revenue System does not have the express permission of Forbes, Entrepreneur, Profit logo.”

None of these organizations are mentioned anywhere on the sales page

Red Flag #6: HomeRevenueSystem.com is being promoted by fake news sites (advertorials). There has been a growing number of fake news sites flooding the internet in recent years.  Since historically a large number of these fake news sites have led to questionable business opportunities I recommend you consider promotion by fake news sites or fake blogs a red flag.

    I was just considering paying for Home Revenue System(HRS) the full amount. Then I thought let me check some negative points about HRS and I tried to move away from the page. Then all of a sudden, the HRS page offered me a discount of 45%. Then I still continued to exit, then it offered me a discount of 60%. After reading this article, I noticed the ‘disclaimer’ about paid testimonials right at the end of the page and I decided not to go for it. Thank you.

    I got suckered into it by receiving an e-mail from a know source that the person had made $800 in 3 days. The e-mail seemed conspicuous as it was different than the normal one received from this person who is a friend. However, I clicked on to the web site and got suckered into paying $97 for the program which I do not have. There is no confirmation of my payment or any of the program features that I supposedly bought i n order to make money from home. This is a scam and don’t know how to get my money back.
    Yes, I’m tired of getting scammed.

    I viewed the “news” page and it stated that a woman living in a town next to mine tried it out. A friend of mine in Canada said the same woman was stated to live in HIS town. Our two URLs were identical.

  4. This is definitely a scam. This company hijacked my Gmail account and sent the sales page to my entire list of friends. The following URL http://cnbc7.com/ wants you to believe it’s a news channel like CNBC and it is fake and registered by a Russian company. And the sales page domain is registered to a company in China. HUGE RED FLAGS!!!!!! THIS IS A SCAM!!!!!!!!!

  5. I received a [hijacked] email from a friend. I realized it was a scam from the get-go, but I like to investigate scams! In it’s advertorial it claims that it has received an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. I checked this out for myself and they do not possess ANY kind of rating at all. That’s a big red flag too.

  6. I just applied and paid for this work at home site. I can’t even call the PHONE NUMBER on this site, it keeps hanging up on me, getting disconnected every time I call. Is this a SCAM? I fell this is a SCAM, I want my grand total of 126.95 USD credit back to my card ASAP, they even advertise that the amount to be paid was 97.00 USD and it came to a grand total of 126.95 USD. Now I have to wait 15 days. Can’t even do anything on this site. First thing to do was call PHONE NUMBER 1-(877)-208-6798 is NOT WORKING.

  7. After watching ‘The Balancing Act’ on TV, the guest promised free access to her training materials to viewers for 48 hours. For one week, the URL did not work. When finally it did, the screen claimed to be her letter requesting any donation to a charity to save the life of ‘Ida’. As soon as providing payment, a video played demanding another $1979. I closed it then and am disputing the $5 donation with my cc company.

  8. I would like details of the MANICURE SERVICE offered on my mobile….thank you….

  9. It happened to me I got an e-mail from my niece in USA with Home revenue e-mail address to click on. She wrote that it is for you don’t tell any body. I trusted what my niece wrote to me and joined the scam company which advertise USD 97 but end paying USD 126.95. After reading this I send an e-mail to them asking for money back but the e-mail was returned saying DEMON . Does any body w? hom I should contact to recover my money this Scam ? The phone number mentioned does not connect also

    • If you paid with a credit card, file a fraud dispute with your credit card company. Dispute procedures are usually on the back of your billing statement. If you paid with a debit card, you’ll need to talk to your bank.

      You should probably CANCEL your card and have a new one reissued, because it’s possible that you got hit with one of the groups using the Home Revenue System name to steal financial information.

  10. So glad that I decided to check this out before I gave them my credit card information. When I first looked at the site, it was $9.95 for the kit. I left the page up for several hours and when I came back to it, the kit was free. It’s so sad that these people prey on those of us who can least afford to loose money on a deal like this.

  11. This definitely is a scam. I recieved an email from a friend with a link to to this “cnbc” site which looked legit. Then I followed a link into the Home Revenue Site and read their way to good to be true speil. So part of me knew better but I still gave them my email when they asked for it and my name. Then I decided to research it before going farther and left it alone even after numerous reductions in price when I tried to exit the site. Low and behold the next day I open my email and it had somehow sent the same link that I got in the first place to all my contacts. And even to some people I didn’t even know. Now here it is about 4 days later and someone claiming to be with Home Revenue System called me and tried to sign me over the phone. So I told him how my email had been hacked, how I never gave my phone number out, and that I thought this was a scam and he couldn’t have been more eager to get off the phone. If nothing else did that says it to me. Home Revenue System:SCAM do not fall for it!!!

  12. hey i got home revenue system page from face book and it was a fake ………i gave them my personal details coz that site gave me a job oportunity so i gave them my details and they withdrawn 5000 frm my account so dont trust on that type of page plz
