I was scammed by Traffic Phoenix
by Sally Royce
My story is about the same as I read in the review. I listened to Charlie's webinar and got sucked into the story and the demonstration of how the software works and how you will make money.
I purchased the Traffic Phoenix software with the promise of the bonus Affiliate Snipper and the 50 website templates for a total of $1262.46 billed through SWREG Digital River, INC.
The training videos were short and left me confused on many parts of the set up process. I asked for help and clarification but never received an answer. The affiliate snipper would not open so I sent another support ticket but did not receive help. I sent several support tickets about questions with the software but no help. I sent a support ticket about the additional training that was supposedly coming that never came.
I continued to try on my own since I paid so much money I didn't want to just quit. I ran into problems with the You Tube videos. The advertisement said the software would automatically collect videos that were not "Official" but it continued to collect and send request to "Official videos" owners about putting a link in their description. The software sent 5 messages to the same channel owner Lady Gaga Vevo. My understanding was it would only send one message to a channel owner. When that happened it made me look stupid. I sent a support ticket asking for guidance and asked it there could be a "bug" in the program. They did not respond again.
The campaign I tried to run using media hijacker did not create the website correctly. The amazon, clickbank, and adsense did not work. But now I am very upset because we had to give them my Clickbank ID and password to earn commissions. I also had to enter
my You Tube developer key and my Bitly API key.
I just learned of this possible scam today by accident. I tried to send another message to support@trafficphoenix and found out that they are not available any longer. So I Googled them and found this review site. Now I see why I've had so many problems.
As of today I have not made one penny with Traffic Phoenix.
Thinking over the last few months I wondered why I have not had any earnings or clicks on my clickbank account.
In fact yesterday I could not login.
I sent SWREG a refund request today because I feel that the product did not perform as advertised.
I purchased this in September of 2011 but I would appreciate any help I can get with this refund.
Hi Sally I am more than sorry this happened to you but the best thing you can do is continue to contact SWREG and tell them you are now working with this website in order for you to get a refund explain to them that the FTC has ruled that this product is 100% a scam and that anyone who buys it has been scammed and that SWREG has been ordered either to stop selling the product or give anyone who buys it a 100% refund! If they do not get a refund then the FBT will get involved.
Send something along that to them and you may get your refund. Tell them also you have proof that they have given a refund to others and that is another reason they must give you one too! SWREG knows that they have to give you a refund so see if that helps you get one and if it does come back here please and report what happened.
Thanks Linda the admin here
