    Bizbiz.mobi, Ubiz app, ANOTHER mobile marketing scam?

    Don't these network marketers have any original ideas? Good grief.

    I saw it was being pimped by a former Flexkom scam affiliate and a thread was started on Talkgold a few days ago. Plenty of videos on YouTube already too.

    Can't help but wonder if the bizbuzz aka buzzirk, aka global verge, phone scam guy is involved given the similar sounding name?

    Here's a slideshare overview:

    Ubiz Mobile App | Biz Biz Business Opportunity | Ubiz Mobile App Oppo

    *Download app for free or,

    *Merchants can upgrade for $30 to access to extra features or,

    *Anyone can pay $145 to recruit and "make money". With that, you will receive 10 -$30 apps valued at $300 aka the pseudo product.


    I can hear it now (again!!):

    Why pay $30 when for only $115 more you can be part of the comp plan and make gazillions as we are now in a paradigm shift and mobile apps are revolutionizing the world. This is set to be the biggest launch in MLM history. Our technology is the best there is in the mobile app market and we are taking the world by storm. Get in early! Don't you wish you did that with companies like Apple and Microsoft? Do miss out on this one and set yourself up for life.

Petschel is still in the MLM game even after the scam of Global Verge pimping some coffee berry crap. He even lists Global Verge on his bio. MLM/NWM sure is a screwed up set of people. It's a bit like saying, hey I've scammed many times in the past so you can be sure I will do an excellent job at scamming you given my experience.

    Re: Bizbiz.mobi, Ubiz app, ANOTHER mobile marketing scam?

    So............ some of you guys were taken by a network marketer in another business not called UBIZ, so you post that UBIZ is a scam? So..... if I'm understanding this correctly: this person now is a representative, not an owner of UBIZ, correct? So you then blast a whole company because it may have a person in it you don't like from a previous "life"? Probably not fair to people like me who are out there representing UBIZ like thousands of others, and making an honest go of a concept and product that works. My wife and I have been doing this for just a short time. We invested $435 and bought 50 start-up codes for merchants to use and participate in the app and promoting their businesses. The app works. The merchants are adverting their news and/or offers and the proximity technology works well. The app basically is as good as the merchants and their offers. My wife and I have marketed this app along with our core merchant services business to businesses as a great "door-opener". We sell the $30 yearly subscription to businesses to advertise on the app. We also help them set up the ad initially and charge a one-time set-up fee of anywhere from $75-$150 depending if they are bundled or not with our other services or belong to our local chamber with us. The community of people around our participating merchants are downloading the app and using it at the participating stores. We gave the participating stores signage to help them promote the downloading of the app. Bottom line is we made our money back from investment quickly and easily and have turned a good profit. We have not yet started to recruit others into the business, as we are doing everything we can to learn about it so that we can later train others with integrity to protect their investment, if they decide to invest. But I also plan to recruit people to straight sell the codes we own, so that there is no investment needed until these recruits see that it's worth it from an economic standpoint, to buy their own inventory of codes. They can sell my codes and access to the app forever. They don't ever have to invest if they don't want to. So I ask you: if my merchants are happy, and I turned a profit within a month of my initial investment, and the app works...............where is the scam? There is no scam because the product can be sold on its own. No one needs to care about the MLM piece. If the MLM piece works, then great......maybe there will be more profit for me & mine, later when I try the MLM piece. I will let you know.............. Do me a favor, though: don't tear apart a company because you don't like the MLM concept (even though plenty of legit companies like Amway, Mary Kay, etc are thriving) or a person you met before. Or because you got involved in something whereby you were promised something that didn't come true for you. I'm sorry about that - I really am. But that doesn't mean that every person in MLM marketing is bad, nor does it mean every MLM company is bad. I mean, what does it say to you that thousands of UBIZ reps are out there with thousands of companies participating in its benefits, and yet this website is one of the only sites with posts that talk negatively about UBIZ? 6 bad posts out thousands possible. Doesn't say much, does it? Heck: companies like APPLE have more complaints and posts in one day than this company does during its whole life so far! Have a good one.
