Complaint / review / scam report
Not delivering what was promised
I signed up with Thrive to build a web site two years ago and they made many promises to me. I have very limited computer skills and they said if I followed what the coaches told me to do I would be successful. I gave them $9500 on my credit card and another $2000 to The Tax Club - The tax club knows ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT TAXES IN CANADA AND ONLINE BUSINESSES but they also made me a lot of promises which did not come to fruition. I was told by Thrive that a 92 year old lady made $3500 a month with her online business with thrive support...I would love to know who she is because I do not believe it. I was told that I would have a coach call every Tuesday at 10 am. Nate called once and that was it! I received some calls here and there but none were scheduled and I was not really sure how to proceed . Many times when I called I was left waiting for the chat line for up to an hour and a half - so guess what happened?? My regular business suffered because I was spending 6 hours a day trying to get my online business going instead of the 2 hours a day I was told all I would need. So with maybe 4 sales a year and credit card at 20% I am almost broke- I did sell my house last year. I have a disability and cannot live on the street but I am close...Thrive did not tell me anything about Merchant Accounts and when one was going to sue me because I did not want to deal with their unkept promises they just told me that that was the cost of doing business. Too bad so sad! I finally ended up with Paypal - another company with promises and no delivery. Their hidden fees in really high. And you can never get through. Same with Google Adwords - no wonder Google is so profitable, They set up adwords without telling me and are charging my credit card and I can't find anyone there to straighten it out. Apparently there is a $37 charge for them to look at the file...and no promise that it will be dealt with. Thrive set me up with a company to look for products - so after loading 128 products I discovered that that supplier also had a website...so I am in competition with the wholesaler and its company! The people at Lightwave Builder save one person are not good to deal with - most are sarcastic and nasty when you phone. Somehow Thrive gave my name to a number of other suppliers - I was talked into setting up other things on the site - turns out they were frauds - So out of the $1600 charged fraudulently to my credit card I recovered some but still had to pay $250. Dealing with Thrive has been a terrible experience - I should just have declared bankruptcy year ago I could go on for 10 pages on what happened with this terrible company. I will never trust another company again
