I found out about the Exclusive Training Profits scam from somebody who had their email account hacked and sent me a message saying, “Nice Opportunity! Ways to Earn Extra Money Online.” The site has all of the usual warning signs of scams like this.
I hunted around for contact details for the company behind this scam when doing warnings about other scams they ran. I don’t know if any of these are still good, but here are phone numbers they have used in the past:
- ENGLISH +1.3057227658
- +1.8888861034 (Toll Free)
- SPANISH +56.22459992
- FRENCH +33.975178827
- PORTUGUESE +55.1130135429
- FAX +1.3056752956
Note: The company itself seems to operate out of Panama as you can see in the image below.
Note: ExclusiveTrainingProfits.com appears to be related to several other sites I’ve put out warnings about that have generated numerous complaints, including the following:
Exclusive Training Profits Warning Signs
Note: The site uses a disclaimer that is WAY at the bottom of the page and hard to find
Warning Sign #1) Promoted by Fake News Sites
Currently, Exclusive Training Profits is being promoted by the following scam news sites:
- 11 Job Revolution
- News Daily 7
These are all being redirected to from a page off of the German Site: motorenwerkstatt-augustin.de
In fact the FTC is continually shutting down fake news sites promoting scams. As you can see below:
Warning Sign #2) Fake Person Leanee Gibbs
Sites like the Exlusive Training Profits scam, typically use fake “spokespeople” claiming to be one of the following:
- “The #1 Home Opportunity Consultant in America”
- “The #1 Work At Home Consultant In America”
- “The #1 Home Job Consultant In America”
These types of claims go baack a couple years to sites that the FTC shut down in case 2:09-cv-04579-PA-VBK as you can see below:
Warning Sign #3) Headline Used By Hundreds Of Scams
“If You Can Spare 60 Minutes A Day, We Can Offer You A Certified, Proven Work From Home Educational Opportunity To Make Up To $377.95 Per Day!”
Again, this type of headline is taken directly from the “Penbrook Productions scam playbook” as detailed by lawsuit FTC vs. Penbrook Productions referenced above:
The “per day claim” varies – often $379, or $87, but the basic headline is exactly the same and one of the items that the FTC noted on their fraud complaint against Penbrook Productions.
Warning Sign #4) DANGEROUS “Free Consultation”
ExclusiveTrainingProfits.com boasts that you’ll get “A Free Consultation With A Search Engine Agent Success Advisor!”
Whenever you see that phrase, RUN AWAY FAST. Once you get on your so-called “free consultation” you will talk to a high-pressure sales person who will try to figure out how much money and credit you have, and then will try to sell you “coaching” for as much as possible. They’ll often even try to tell you that they are looking for people to use for “success stories”.
There are plenty of other warning signs, including:
- Bogus use of NBC News video.
- Fake claims about value
- Bogus “story” using the name Mike Wright, Karl Goodard, or Robert West
- Bogus countdowns like the ones below:
You’ll find those doozies across hundreds of ridiculous scam websites
Here’s The Exclusive Training Profits Telltale Scam Sign:
These types of bogus income projection tables are used by all kinds of scams, including:
- Envelope Stuffing Scams
- Mailing Circulars Scams
- eMail Processing Scams
- Rebate Processing Scams
Again, the bogus “income projection” table used by Exclusive Training Profits was a centerpiece of the FTC Vs. Penbrook Productions.. Here’s an image-grab of that nonsense from that complaint:
