Fast Commissions Scam Review

This scheme was reportedly released only recently and what drew my attention was that it was sent to me by a renowned Scam peddler, Mack Michaels. What also raised "red flags" for me was that it is supposedly by guys named Andrew X and Winter Valko, who already have established themselves as known Scam artists and peddlers. The headline reads "Get paid $ 100 in Commissions before Xmas" while the video in the very beginning asks "How would you like to get your hands on MILLIONS of dollars worth of commissions for FREE?". Not very good marketing from the start! And if you take a look at the affiliate program, you will see that this scheme not only costs $ 39.- but is actually packed with numerous up- and downsells! Looks to me like deception at it's best!

Let's have a review of the rather lengthy video/presentation and at the statements/claims made:

- A guy named Matthew feels compelled to read the video presentation to you,
   which to me indicates that the target audience are either the hearing impaired
   and/or illiterates.
- "It is 100 % free"
- You are offered to get the power to "instantly launch an endless stream of free
   traffic and commissions",
- This power will "funnel massive amounts of targeted traffic to any website or
   affiliate link you like without ever paying a dime",
- Matthew will "reveal exactly how you can go out and get millions of dollars in
   traffic for free...",
- Unsubstantiated ClickBank and other income statements are shown time and again,
- Nobody has to buy anything for Matthew to get paid,
- This incredibly powerful strategy "boils down to you getting unlimited traffic and
   commissions for free",
- Then comes the usual "rags-to-riches" story,
- Matthew has a "proven 3 Step System that NEVER fails to deliver an endless
   supply of high quality free traffic for free",
- Anyone can do this,
- Matthew let's you know that his system is a "genuine set-and-forget free money
   making" system,
- You can potentially make 10 million $ a year,
- "There's NO secret or hidden costs..."
- Matthew personally does give you an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee.

As I mentioned, the video is way too long and repetitive. Let's have a look at the facts and try to reconcile just some with the (various) disclaimers:

1. It obviously is not free and comes with numerous up- and downsells,
2. Matthew never reveals exactly how you can go out and get millions of dollars,
3. Given the fact that there are up- and downsells there obviously are hidden costs,
4. We don't know if Matthew is "real" or if he is an actor used,
5. Disclaimer: "As this is a new system, there are no typical results. This product does not guarantee
    income or success, and examples of the product owner's and other person's results do not represent
    an indication of future success or earnings". Try to correlate that to the claims made?
6. Disclaimer: "You recognize any business endeavour has inherent risk for loss of capital". That can only
    lead you to the conclusion that Matthew's money-back guarantee is worthless!

I would think that at this point we can conclude that more likely than not, you are not going to get what you think you will get, except scammed out of $ 39.-

  1. This program is a scam. I purchased it at the downsell of $20. I downloaded it and opened it immediately and was quickly discouraged. It was nothing more than what I was doing. It requires you to purchase a domain name, hosting, sign up to aweber, clickbank and download a software pkg. that does automatic post. This is standard stuff and he thinks it is a big deal. Traffic is by solo ads and ad swaps. Also no big deal. I requested a refund immediately and I received the following:

    Hi,

    It's a shame you want to quit, it really is. There is ZERO scam involved. it's fortunate for YOU that you already know how to create capture pages, how to drive limitless amounts of traffic to those pages, how to build your own list, and create sales by promoting affiliate products!

    This product is NOT FOR YOU then, this product is for someone who has little to NO experience online, who is just starting out, and can use help in creating their capture pages, and driving traffic to those.

    Honestly from what your saying, I dont know why you would purchase this product, as it sounds like you have all the online success you need!!

    Please read the below from my legal team and reply before we can process your refund:

    ******

    Dear Customer,

    It has come to our attention that you would like to request a refund and terminate your membership.

    Before we process your refund, I, as a member of our legal department, request you read the below and reply confirming your compliance with our refund policy.

    PLEASE note that if you want a refund you MUST delete any and all files associated with the Fast Commissions System and the Fast Commissions software from your hosting company and your computer, and must confirm that you have done this in writing via email.

    Furthermore, please reply with a list of domains that you have use the system on for verification purposes.

    Our legal department then files your email, as we must keep records to protect our current members from refunded customers illegally using the files.

    Once we have your email we then do as per your request. We must get this reply before the end of your guarantee period.

    It would be a shame to give up on this program, so I'd urge you to reconsider your refunding of this product. I hope you can find the time to take advantage of this opportunity, and let us know how we can assist you in using it to its full potential.

    But, if you still want a refund please reply and confirm that all the website files you have gained from Fast Commissions have been deleted from your computer and your hosting account.

    Again, we must receive this confirmation before the end of your 30 day refund guarantee period. Once we receive this, your refund will be processed.

    In order to protect our existing members, if you breach the above conditions our Company will not hesitate to pursue your violation of our licensing and membership agreement.

    I reminded him of the video guarantee:
    Let me remind you said in the video--AND IF YOU'RE UNHAPPY FOR ANY REASON AT ALL IN THOSE 30 DAYS, LET ME KNOW AND I'LL PERSONALLY ARRANGE FOR AN INSTANT REFUND FOR YOU, NO ARGUMENT.

    I have contacted my credit card and it will not be paid.

  2. Howdy,
    I'm in the same situation and got the same replies from Fast Commissions.
    Any advice on how do we take legal action AGAINST this company? Simply would not like to see more victims.
    They behave like thieves. What they are doing is outright shameless. Thanks for the posts.
