|Don't do business with this company. They made promises and didn't deliver and charged my credit card after I cancelled the service. The worst online company I have every dealt with. They have no email address or physical address only a phone number to be put on hold and jerked aroung for hours. I got ripped off...beware.|
|We spent hours on the phone trying to cancel our account as well. We finally called the credit card company and told them to refuse all future charges. They called and told us we still needed to call and talk to an account rep to formally cancel. I told them we took care of it, we have no written contract and we are not paying you anymore. Stay away from these jerks.|
|I spent 40 minutes on the phone asking to cancel and repeated telling them I wasn't prepared to use this service at this time and I just wanted to cancel. They don't take no for an answer very well and was very frustrating to have wasted that long on the phone simply to cancel the service.|
|Thank you for your advice, I have cancelled my credti card before they can charge it again. I have advertised with them through facebook, I haven't seen the advertisement yet, they just do not deliver the service which they promise to deliver|
|The company is a SCAM...It was once LinkTech Solutions, LinkTech International, and now LinkTech Worldwide. They are an SEP internet company who prey on Real Estate Agents and Realtors nationwide. They also have several DBA's Worldwide Media Group and Premier Global Media are the two current ones. The other DBA associated with this SCAM are GMR (Global Media can't remember the R), IMX (Interglobal Media Experts) and IGM (Interglobal Media). If they call you immediately hang up. |
They claim to be licensed contractors for Google, but they are not. They retrieve your information from an outside leads source (not even associated with Google) and convince you Google has researched you specifically in your area. If you call Google, they will inform you they are not a licensee or partner with this company (or any of its associated DBAs). LinkTech Worldwide just pays for ad space. It is not a guaranteed first page/top position either.
They charge you a set up fee for $14.95, first month free with a monthly charge of $79(thereafter). The pricing has changed from DBA to DBA(varying from $25 to $249 a month). You are paying for a phrase, that if not typed in exactly verbatim word for word as it was set up potential clients/contacts will NEVER find you.
If you attempt to call in, the CS department has been trained to place you on hold for lengths at a time, send you to a dead line, or convince you in keeping the service (by offering credits, holds, or fictious click reports to show you the product is working). You may even experience repeated charges once you have asked to be canceled.
The owners thrive off of you not paying attention to your finances and forgetting that you have signed up for a service that will never give you the results you were promised. If you have been scammed into believing this is a legitimate company cancel the credit card that they have ASAP.
The companies are based out of Beverly Hills, CA and Beaverton, OR...RUN RUN RUN and save yourself the headache and grief.
|I just was scammed by them i think. I just set up the account with them and i had a bad feeling the whole time (always go with your gut.) Once i got off the phone i Googled them and found all these scam forums. I called the bank and cancelled my card immediately, but they still got away with $29. Learned my lesson!!!|
|I did not receive the results promised by these jerks and they are making it extremely difficult to cancel my account. I have been on the telephone for 15 minutes and still not answer from them. I advise all who have complaints with them to contact your:|
STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE AND FILE A COMPLAINT AND ASK FOR A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT TO BE INITIATED AGAINST THEM.
Keep pushing and get these people out of business
