Finding that one program that allows you the freedom to make money from home is a dream for many. There are so many programs out there that advertise you can do just that, and at the same time claim it takes very little work. Unfortunately, while it may seem legit with its glowing recommendations from well known companies and news sources, Work At Home EDU is just another copycat link posting scam.
How am I sure Work at Home EDU is really a scam? Have I tried it?
While I haven’t personally bought this particular program, I don’t have to. I can spot these fraudulent programs from a mile away.
Initially, I found out about WAH EDU from a previous review I did on a similar program, Work At Home University. A visit to their website redirected me to this new site – wahedu.com.
Here are a few comments within my WAH University review (from people who actually invested money into it):
“Thanks for all this info. I did purchase the WAHU system for $97 and proceeded to work it. I was told to immediately call a specialist to get me started for only $4000. Do I feel foolish. I’ve been trying to work the program without enlisting a specialist…..but no go! Disappointment I would like to work at home on computer related projects and am willing to put in the time and effort it takes to make it successful.”
“Just signed up for $77- and watched one video and tried to get started by updating my profile. Then it said to call the Start up Specialist first. Wow; talk about misinformation; These guys have scamming down to an art.”
Considering Work At Home University is now redirecting to Work at Home EDU, I’d be willing to bet the product is identical.
Now, if you go to the direct wahedu.com site (or if you found it from that URL), you won’t get the usual sales page. The marketing angle given on that particular URL is much more down to earth and to the point. They don’t spend the entire sales page sharing the same old single mom story of Michelle Robinson, Bobbie Robinson, Michelle Withrow, etc..(she is given many different names), nor do they boast about how you do virtually no work and make tons of money.
Instead, they actually get to the point and tell you what it is you’ll be doing. They talk about how you’ll learn how to create a website, market products, find affiliates, get traffic among other things, instead of the usual and vague “post links and get tons of money” advertising approach.
Nevertheless, the sneaky company still has the same scummy sales page hidden within different varying URLs…basically an exact copy of Work At Home University and all the others.
While they may try to make it seem legit with a new approach, it doesn’t make the product any better.
Is it really endorsed by Fox News, MSNBC, ABC, CNN, and USA Today?
No! This program was never featured on any of these news networks.. It’s just a marketing ploy to make you think it’s legit. How do they get away with this? Considering each and every program like this comes and goes so quick, they seem to be able to get away doing almost anything.
What about the NBC news segment? Is that real?
The featured news segment, supposedly from a story by NBC news, is completely fake. It’s called an advertorial – which is a news story that is meant to look real but is really just an advertisement.
Also, if you actually watch you’ll notice they never tell you the programs name these people are working for. They just keep repeating “found a way to work from home” “is now working from home” and so on. It’s kind of generic, and they use it on the majority of these link posting scams sales pages.
Who is Michelle Robinson?
She’s just a made up identity. Every single of one these programs uses the same story with a different name. Sometimes the name gets reused but often times it’s changed. The photos are all stock photos, even down to the testimonials.
Okay, so what about the actual training?
While it appears you do get some training when you sign up for Work At Home EDU, it isn’t any type of quality education. Often times you’ll get training that is a bit too generalized and unfocused for someone with no experience to take and put into action. Most people need step by step guidance and a clear path of action to see results.
Simply put, the training they give you isn’t going to be enough to take you from a complete newbie to creating a successful business online.
They charge $97 for the program. They claim it’s a one time fee, but it only gets you access for 3 months (or maybe 6 months, as claimed on their alternate sales page). They sometimes offer it for as low as $47.
They’ll also upsell you once you join. The “24/7” support they claim to have bogus, and code for “our sales team will call you 24/7 and try to upsell you on overpriced services you don’t really need”.
The help, support, extra training, tools, etc. that you’ll need are all going to be offered to you at ridiculously high prices.
Work at Home EDU lacks what is needed to be successful with online business
If you want to be successful online, the first thing you need is a realistic mindset. People who start out thinking it’s going to be easy, painless and produce instant monetary gratification are always the first ones to give up when they realize it isn’t possible.
Not only do you need to have the right mindset going in, you need to have quality, focused training, good tools and proper help.
The only thing you get with WAH EDU is mediocre training and scummy sales people who try to get you to buy into ridiculous services for lots of money.
