It seems like an easy way to make money online.
But is this program really what it claims to be? Well, it’s a good thing you’re doing your homework because it turns out things aren’t quite as they appear.
In this review, I’ll show you what I found to help you decide if this program is legit.
Home Wealth Remedy Review
The domain for this website (homewealthremedy.com) was registered in September 2016 by a company called “SecureForm LLC”. The address listed is based in Hawaii which appears to be part of the ‘Makaha Market Place’, a shopping mall.
The person that originally claimed ownership of Home Wealth Remedy (HWR) is supposedly named “Bree Johnson”. However, this has since changed to a guy named “A.B Anderson” which likely has to do with the number of reviews I found exposing Bree as a fake persona, and a stock photo.
Oddly, almost every word on the sales page was left untouched, except the name of the person telling the story and their picture. Makes the whole ‘rags to riches’ story pretty hard to believe right? Yep.
Not only this, but that same story has been used time and time again throughout many similar sites to this that I have reviewed here on this site.
To show you what I mean, almost a year ago I reviewed the Cash From Home system which was apparently created by “Mary Rogers”.
They’ve since changed this to”Cynthia Sprinter” as you can see below:
Note the similarities on the HWR sales page below:
In other words, the entire story is fake. It’s just a rehashed lot of rubbish they’ve been using for years across multiple websites.
But that’s really just the tip of the iceberg.
Fake Reviews, News Stories and Endorsements
As I’m about to show you, pretty much everything you can see on the pages associated with this is fake. I am not kidding when I say this is an elaborate scheme designed to suck as many people in as possible.
In addition to the main website, there are also two ‘review’ websites that note HWR as an amazing opportunity to make money quickly and easily.
Fake review sites:
Unfortunately, those sites are run by the same person behind HWR, and there is nothing legitimate about them. They link to fake news stories as I will now explain.
Fake News Stories
Both of the above two ‘review’ sites link to the same fake news story they are currently using to deceive people. I say currently because this changes very often. According to who.is data, the same company that owns HWR owns the “5newsdaily.us” domain:
Here is the URL for the fake news story I am referring to:
This page poses as the real ‘Fox Business’ and pretends like billionaire investor Elon Musk has recommended and is endorsing this program. The screenshot below was taken directly from this fake news story:
The whole “story” is supposedly written by Elon where he is supposedly endorsing the HWR system, he’s not. Like pretty much everything else attached to HWR, it’s also fake.
If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, it confesses that this is nothing more than a fictitious story in the sites legal disclaimer.
Funny enough, the people behind this haven’t updated the page, it still lists “Bree Johnson” as the creator of the program which completely contradicts the sales page where Anderson is claiming to be the person behind HWR.
They’ve used many other fake news stories to promote this including stories supposedly from Mark Cuban, Donal Trump, Hilary Clinton and other trusted public figures.
They use this very same tactic on the sales page also, leading with a real news video discussing home based business and displaying news logos. There’s only one problem, that is a compilation of old news videos that have been getting used among these scam sites for years now. The news video itself is real, but in no way does it reflect or have anything to do with HWR.
As you can see, they have to place a legal disclaimer at the bottom of the page which clearly shows that the page is BS. It also clearly states that this is not some kind of ‘certification program’ as they lead people to believe in the more obvious sales material.
What about the testimonials, surely they can’t be fake right?
Here’s a screenshot from one of their so called testimonials:
Now here’s the very same image from a stock photo website:
As you can see, pretty much every form of endorsement from the news stories, the review pages, to the testimonials from “people just like you” are fake. This has all been designed to gain your trust, so you buy this program.
Is This a Real “Certified Link Agent” Job?
As someone who actually does make money on the internet, this is so obviously rubbish I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
For real. This is absolutely ridiculous when you know how online business works.
There is absolutely no such thing as a link posting agent, or job. That is a fact.
Not only is this a completely made up job/ business, but there is no way known people are getting paid “$500 per day” as the sale material suggests. This is a blatant lie.
In the very technical sense, you can make money when people buy products through your affiliate links or product links online, yes. But by no means is this a ‘job’ and there is much more to the story than the page lets on.
At best, this is a deliberate and gross over simplification of the process of making money online.
A Webinar With A.B Anderson
I did some digging and found a pre-recorded webinar by Anderson, who explains the business model in more detail.
The presentation starts out with Anderson supposedly chilling on his patio in Hawaii. He seems like a pretty likeable character in some respects and (surprisingly) does offer some useful, but very general, tips on online business.
According to Anderson:
You guys are going to posting links to sell other people’s products, it’s called drop shipping
More specifically, this is about drop shipping via eBay. Apparently they give you the ‘links’ of wholesale products you can advertize with on eBay and there’s a number of training videos inside the members area.
As a drop shipper, you never stock anything yourself. When a customer places an order, you simply process that order and have it dispatched from the wholesaler. Kind of like a middleman.
This is a legitimate business model and something you can totally profit from.
But the whole idea of ‘posting links’ is a gross oversimplification. It is also quite misleading when you compare what the sales page has talked about, and what you are actually being taught within the program.
As one recent customer posted on RipOffReport.com puts it:
I called the customer service number and someone actually answered the phone after about 6 tries. He I didn’t get a name explained that this has to do with posting products on eBay going to a wholesale secret web site marking the product up and getting paid the difference. There is nothing mentioned about this on their web page. This is commonly referred to as false advertising.
This outlines the massive discrepancy in what you ‘think’ you are buying, and what you are actually buying.
While drop shipping is simpler than selling products you own, it is absolutely not as simple as posting links. Not even close.
To be fair, there may very well be some good information inside this program.
However, given the sheer number of near identical scam sites this program is associated with, it may very well be a bunch of general, re-hashed information you could find anywhere online for free. There may be a lot of information, but it’s the quality of that information that counts.
From what I could see in the webinar, the members area contains a lot of different training on a lot of different topics, and is set out in a rather confusing manner. It’d be easy for beginners to get lost with this and not know where to turn, which is probably why you are encouraged to contact your ‘coach’.
As I’m about to explain, these ‘coaches’ may not be there to help you.
The Website Builder 101
Part of the steps also includes building a website though his recommended website building platform, called “Builder 101”. This is a website package I had not heard of until now, so I can’t say how good it is.
These ‘website packages’ are available for purchase for $97 a piece through these sites:
Depending on which link you click on out of the above, you are taken to a different page for this with a different logo.
I’m not sure if this is an addittional cost or if it’s included in the price.
What I do know, is that there are much more reputable, lower cost and proven ways to build a profitable website when it comes to ecommerce, or any form of online marketing for that matter. Shopify and WordPress are among the best options.
Anderson says once you have your site setup, you contact family and friends to get them to buy from you, and invite them to keep coming back to buy. That’s fine and all, but you will need to do WAY more than this if you are to be successful.
In order to get visitors to your website, you need to understand the fundamental principals of how website marketing works.
Quite often with these sites, I find hidden charges. So I was keen to dig into their T’s & C’s to see if there were in fact any hidden charges, and it turns out there were.
There’s a hidden $4.95 charge that is placed on your credit card each month:
Nowhere on the sales page, or the order form is this hidden charge mentioned.
There is also a 15% fee if you cancel your account within 7 days:
Terms page: https://secureform.us/terms-conditions-bldc
That works out to about a $14.69 loss should you decide to cancel and ask for your money back within a 7 day period. I’m not sure why they have to include these hidden costs and fees? In my experience, this is not a good sign.
One-On-One Consultation or Sneaky Telemarketing?
One of the other common threads with these programs is how you are told you get a ‘coach’ when in reality, this is a telemarketing team tasked with getting you to upgrade to more and more products.
Many people have reported being upsold into the $1000’s by the people behind near identical sites, and from what I have seen, this is very likely what they intend on doing to you. There’s nothing wrong with upsells as such, but if you need to pay more to achieve what was already promised, there is.
Either way, I recommend being extremely careful when purchasing addittional products over the phone, this is one of the surest ways to never see your money again. Since there is no proof and no agreement in writing.
The Privacy Risk
The last point I wanted to mention is how they admit to sharing your personal information with other marketers and unknown third parties. This includes your name, address, email and phone number among other things.
Not only do they intend on making as much money from each person as possible, but they profit from selling/ sharing your personal information to other marketers who do the same. Once your details are on a list, it becomes very difficult to get away from it.
There are a lot of red flags with this program across the board.
While Anderson (or whoever the guy in the video was) may seem like a reasonable guy, it’s strange that he would choose the marketing tactics he has. If he really is legitimately trying to help people with genuine products, why all the fake stories and sketchy marketing?
Either way, this is not a link posting job. This is drop shipping and advertizing on eBay, along with building a website through an unknown platform. Oh.. and probably being convinced to buy high ticket coaching at some point.
As a result of what I found, I decided not to purchase this product. I don’t believe it’s worthwhile. There may be some good information, but it’s hard to believe a legitimate company would operate in this manner.
Whether you choose to buy or not, hopefully this review has given you some worthwhile insights to make your decision a little easier.
