    AchieveSucessToday.ca - vague

    Hello All!

    Registered to get some opinions on Achieve Success Today, who have little to no information on their site for a work from home job, promising to transform your life and financial independence.

    This job listing appeared on jobs.ie which is possibly the most popular job listing site, for regular jobs under 35k in Ireland.


    https://www.jobs.ie/ApplyForJob.aspx?Id=1651743


    Multiple red flags from the vagueness of the listing and how it tells you exactly what it is not:


    Points to note about this business:



    NOT MLM (Multi Level Marketing)
    No Cold Calling
    No Home parties or hassling friends
    No storing of inventory
    No spamming we do not send unsolicited emails
    But.... it doesn't say what they actually do, or what they sell, or what they plan to possibly sell.


    The active links on the page: achievesuccesstoday.ca include a FB page with the typical generic motivational images and links to private LinkedIn and Twitter pages for a one Breda Pickering.


    There's nothing on google showing up and the nearest match was for the Achieve Community, which is how I actually found this site

    Had a look through that thread and the name Breda Pickering, doesn't appear once so it might be total coincidence.

    The only other thing on the site is SoYouWantSuccess with an 11min video, full of positivity and vagueness for the two founders Shane & Rachael and 'the product', which is never explained.



    I'd be interested to see if anyone has heard of this exact company or model and what they're trying to sign people up for.

    Thankfully the traditional MLM type models have all but died out in Ireland, with the advent of social media and the ones based off of the DS-Max MLM all had to go legit, with the reputation they earned.

    The likes of HerbaLife and detox teas never caught on and there's only a handful of Avon ladies still about.

    But I do remember vagueness, constant name and location changes being a very common pattern, along with lots of red-herrings on google to try and prevent people from looking them up.

    The domain name is registered with GoDaddy Canada:

    Domain Information

    Domain: achievesuccesstoday.ca

    Registrar: Go Daddy Domains Canada, Inc

    Registration Date: 2015-05-01

    Expiration Date: 2019-05-01

    Updated Date: 2017-04-15

    Status: registered

    Name Servers:

    ns1.bluehost.com
    ns2.bluehost.com

    To find out if the contact information is open or private a search of Whois Canada would be needed. My bet is on the information being set to private and only a paid service is used for contact information.

    Their website is all fluff using stock photo's in their testimonials. You can click on their products and all you get is a lot more fluff with no real substance but plenty of hype. I am sure the products deal with personal development just based on how they word things. Nothing of substance, but the lure of making you want to know more so they can call you to get their hooks in you. Your only contact is either email or calling them. No information about the people behind this company, no bios, and they promise to call you within 48 hours of your inquiry wanting to know more via email. I'm sure if you call them, you will get the pitch immediately, unless you have to leave your number for them to call you back.

    When a company does not disclose who they are, who are the leaders, specifically state what their products are, have an address, tell you where they are registered to do business, and if required licensing, stay away. It is a con designed to separate you from your money with nothing to show for it when you finally give up.

    It's only going to cost you $997 to find out, with all the money you'll be making that's a drop in the bucket. I watched the YouTube video which was uploaded four years before the website came on line, if that isn't convincing what is? The whole 6 minutes was gushing from folks hand selected from Fiver about how they're losers no more.

    The description below makes me think of this woo from way back.

    I got the impression that this is her website to recruit people so she could get back her investment and not the parties behind this program.

    By the way, remember Kevin Trudeau's Nouveau Tech Society? Well, it's back but now going by the name "The Society." It is a word-for-word copy of Kevin's scam back years ago. Got the letter in the mail yesterday. Sadly there will be a lot of people who fall for this because they weren't around when Kevin did it the first time. Still got a good chuckle out of reading the letter and how I am so special with all these important people, unnamed of course, who have been watching me.

    Well, after amassing more than 13 million Euros in Microsoft Stock, I hope she's not hurting for money.

    It looks like working for MS drove her over the edge in the end.. https://www.irishtimes.com/news/dama...soft-1.1287908

    Hard to tell with the typical vagueness of scam promoters, but it looks like it might be promoting another version of Liberty League/Polaris Global.
