Everyone wants to be rich and successful, but how do people do it?
It's really not that difficult. It simply requires a bit of commitment, a dash of determination and some knowledge about how it's done. http://www.worldwidememberships.com

The above link would be yet another one of those scams that I was talking about in the other thread on this topic.

Red Flags include:

You have to join/sign up . . . the word membership is right in the email address!

The site goes on for a page, but can anyone tell me what I would be doing for this business/job?

Promises of being rich and successful

I was shocked and dismayed to read that you condemned WorldWideMemberships.com as a scam.The meaning of the word 'scam'
is a ploy by a shyster to raise money, or a fraudulent business scheme or a swindle.
I am a director of this company, I find it very disturbing that you can so easily condemn a website as a scam before even reading the full content.
My partner and I are both professional people, if you checked the "about us” you
would have found all the relevant details about our professional history. We have never been involved with a scam and don't intend to start now.
If you had requested the report, this would have told you in greater detail the monthly benefits of the club.
I have paid $1000's in order to get the members their monthly products.
I realize that you are doing a great job in warning people about various scams,
I myself have been a victim many times. I would ask you to please read the report at
http://www.worldwidememberships.com/introduction
This will give you the full report on the membership.I can assure you that this is not a scam.

Strange - a very U.S oriented website, but run from Camarthen in Wales, by a company that appears to have existed since December 2006.

In response to - maninthestreet:
Strange - a very U.S oriented website, but run from Camarthen in Wales, by a company that appears to have existed since December 2006. So...........does this penalize us for not running a business from the USA? Companies have to start somewhere, does this make it a scam? The company is a UK Limited Company, registered with Company House,London.
I understood that the www. means World Wide Web, allowing people from anywhere in the world to run an Internet business.

In response to you Shaun:
You have to join/sign up . . . the word membership is right in the email address! --- Does this mean that ALL membership sites are scams or illegal?
The site goes on for a page, but can anyone tell me what I would be doing for this business/job? ---It is not a business or a job, If you had bothered to read my last replyand If you visit http://www.worldwidememberships.com/introduction this will give you the full facts, this is the page that people access after completing their e-mail address.
Promises of being rich and successful?--- I can assure you we promise nothing. For $1 members get full access along with all the free bonuses, plus the first months products, if they don't like what they see, they can cancel and even ask for their $1 to be refunded, keeping all the products.
Once again I must stress that websites like yours are needed to expose scams, I have always supported them, however, please don't condemn until you know the full facts, and proof that the company or website is a scam.

I have to interject here...

This site may "not" be a scam BUT:

The way this site is set up, it does looks like one.

The first page is extremely long and at the bottom of it you see the usual Paypal, MC, Visa logo's. This right here makes it look just like the "thousands" of sites out there that really are scam sites.

The SCREAMING is nothing more than a "sales" tactic to pressure a person to react quickly. This is another sign of a scam site as they want you to react as fast as possible.

Anyone can throw pictures up that they get off the internet and just about anyone can build these kinds of sites, they are what's called "templates".

Any fees involving this membership should be mentioned in the Terms of Service and I didn't find anything there regarding a membership fee.

The overall impression this site gives me is that it's very poorly built and cheap looking. That by itself makes the site look suspicious.

I would recommend building an new site. The way it looks at this moment, I would think it is a scam site too. I wouldn't even bother to read it just because of the way it's presented. If you want people to perceive you as a professional company then you need to "look" the part with the website. A more professional looking site will also help it to not be targeted as a possible scam site.

"Hey, I know about this site, and have been through it's information, it's far from being a scam, I don't know what's happened here, or who posted this, but I got a lot out of the information when I was a member, not a scam guys'

'This site doesn't look to be a scam, I am reviewing scams for a project of mine, and am checking membership site, and all the content is there that said would be there, there is no problem, obviously another jealous competitor posting their rivals links up again... "

FYI to all . . .

Moses_p, aannee and georgeh are either the same person, roommates, friends or just happen to use the same computer because they ALL share the same IP address.

I must admit I don't know who Moses_p, aannee and georgeh are either.

I read the moderators comments:
This site may "not" be a scam BUT:

The first page is extremely long.
I would recommend building an new site.

I appreciate positive criticism.

I take on board what you have said and intend to have the site re-written. We bought this site for several $1000's.The major cost was the products and the software to run the business. The hype, I agree is not necessary and this will be changed. The terms of service are now having the cost of membership added. The Paypal logo will also be removed. Obviously this cannot happen overnight , I would hope to have this completed within the next 2-3 weeks.
I am a retired nurse/midwife and Liz Parsons my partner is a retired teacher of mentally handicapped children. We have been in the caring profession for over 40 years and to have our business classed as a scam is devastating to us both.
We enjoy working on the internet and building our online business.
I would like to appeal to your company to remove the threads. If these are not removed then search engines will class our website as a scam.

I just thougt it was "odd" that the three people who are singing the praises of your site appear to be the same person.

I guess to me, you have not really proven that it is not a scam. What is the site about? I don't have time to read the pages of boring "sales pitch" info . . . if you can sum it up in a post on here, and tell us all about it then we will have the information we need to make a decision about if the thread stays or not.

I have tried to condense the benefits of membership to World Wide Memberships.
It is a membership site whereby members pay their monthly subscription of $29.99.

Benefits of being a member are:

1. Monthly Interview by Millionaire experts sharing their techniques and strategies on their success. This can be downloaded on to MP3 files and listen to them at leisure, or even read the complete transcripts of the interviews.

2. The Monthly newsletter is the best way to keep members informed, updated and aware of all the newest, latest breakthrough strategies and tools.

3. Each month members will receive new software, audio, video or ebook product that will help them in their business. Plus, they will have the rights to resell that product to other people. Should they decide to sell that product, they get to keep 100% of the sales they make.

4.During the first month of membership,(as long as they remain a member of WWM), members will receive free monthly subscription to The Submission Zone,(value $18.95 a month), which is a simple to use program that will allow members to, submit as many websites, as often as they would like to all the major search engines, create quality meta tags for all of their sites, check their sites for meta tag optimization, spider checker to check their website for Meta tags and page title. Use the advanced traffic tracking software to track all traffic to their website. They will have access to a massive download area full of online marketing books and manuals. The keyword density report which scans a user’s site and generates a keyword string based on the contents of a users website.

I have tried extremely hard to prove that our website is anything but a scam. I only hope that this will convince you. Because of your commitment to keeping the Internet scam free and safe for users, I would also hope that you would not like to be seen as unjust but a fair minded individual who researches the scam sites he writes about and if wrong will not condemn the innocent.
