“World Profit”, by George Kosch, Sandi Hunter, and Jeffrey Lant and found at worldprofit.com, is an infamous internet affiliate marketing company that is loaded with endless complaints from a lot of very unhappy people.
We usually run into a moderate amount of registered grievances on many of the business opportunities when first researching for review, however, it is rare to see such an enormous amount like were found against World Profit.
We even have registered complaints here in our comment section below, and that was before we got to change this from a business submission into a review.
Most scam “biz opps” use a reputation cleaning method known as scrubbing to get rid of bad or negative internet presence by filling the search pagers with nonsense and fake reviews to push the real info way down.
So far down that most people won’t go as far as 40 or 50 pages of search material. The majority of people “googling” only go as far as page 2 maybe even 3.
World Profit has such a bad reputation that it looks like it would be a waste of money for them to try to suppress it all. That said, we will now look into why World Profit is so awful.
At a hundred a month, it’s inconceivable that a company like World Profit would rip people off, or so everyone would assume. Yet here we are.
They present a 20 minute video full of hype over substance with the standard scam hype that only a few positions are left, hurry, etc.
Their affiliate program works mostly in favor of the company and not the affiliate, as World Profit is in the business of making money from their affiliates driving traffic to the company, not so much the affiliate’s business.
Sure, World Profit has tools and training that shows you how to drive visitors to one’s site, sell traffic exchanges and “safelists”. However, the traffic they get you to bring in is a low quality waste of time and money.
The reason is that most of the visitors will be redirected to World Profit’s sales pages, and that traffic is also your competition so it’s like the dog chasing its tail.
If by some chance some one actually buys something off the World Profit affiliate ID links you post and advertise you would get some commission, which they aren’t very clear about what it is you would really make.
However, World Profit engages in false promises with their claim that millions of people will visit your website, when in truth it is not actually your website, nor millions going through your link.
Getting people to sing up to World Profit under you is no easy feat, as most of the visitors either are already signed up or the traffic has little to no interest in your link therefore little to no value to you because they are doing the same thing you are.
At the very least I can’t deem World Profit a scam per se, because they do provide lots of training information, but it’s mostly on how to help them profit more than you would.
Although there is information to look over, the World Profit sales page designs and much of the info are quite outdated and pretty much obsolete.
The amount of time it takes to not only learn but to go around trying to get others to buy from or sign up under you at World Profit is vast and mostly unproductive.
Many complaints I’ve viewed are against the owners, in particular, Lant. Just about every one of them claims he is rude, belittling and arrogant to put it nicely here. This is a family show, after all.
A significant amount of complaints go to members who are unable to cash their World Profit checks due to irregular routing numbers.
World Profit operates out of Canada and if they ever answer your support ticket complaint they claim that the banking system is different there, but that is hogwash.
Canadian banking has the same 9 digit figure as all other banks, but in some cases you would need SWIFT codes. None of that information is provided by World Profit.
World Profit also does not tell you there is a 3 day cancellation policy right upfront. Though their phone reps tell you outright to not expect any earnings for at least 90 days, they fail to mention the 3 day policy.
World Profit deals in way too many deceptive business practices for our taste, and the endless list of complaints I’ve found against them are too numerous to list here.
We cannot in good conscience ever recommend World Profit to anyone at all. Avoid it at all costs.
Thanks for reading…
