Need Money Scam: Blackbelt Profit System

Looking for details on the Home Income Profit System? See the real story here! 

June 8th update! Blackbelt Profit System is being remarketed under the name Home Income Black! Same product, new name!

The Blackbelt Profit System has been floating under the radar and has surfaced. Read the fine print before you buy into this one!

The Blackbelt Profit System claims that thousands have used their system and are working from the comfort of their home. Yet, they give little information about "how" thousands are making money and "what" they do to earn it. There are a number of ads running featuring Nicole Johnson or Marie Thompson.

With a little research, we find that the Blackbelt Profit System shows buyers they can buy ads with Google AdWords, direct buyers to websites selling affiliate marketing products and make thousands of dollars a month.

The catch they don't tell you is that using pay per click to advertise affiliate marketing products is one of the most competitive money making fields out there. What's more, the example given of a sample campaign is optimistic at best. Most campaigns (using Adwords to advertise products) cost more money than they make.

The cost of running an ad campaign with Google to advertise products can run $100, 200.00, even 400.00 a day.

Let's read the Terms and Conditions for Blackbelt Proft and find out "how much" it really costs! Those free trials do cost something.

When you sign up, you have to give a credit card for an activation fee:

When you enroll in our membership program we will charge the card the card you provide an activation fee specified on the order checkout page.

Then comes the big time charge:

on the following business day, we will charge the same card you provided at enrollment the non-refundable one-year membership fee of $149.95.


Then, buyers pay every month for the Blackbelt Profit System:


we charge the Membership Fee to your card and every thirty (30) days thereafter, we will charge your card $4.97 for as long as choose to remain in the Program.

Those fees are not refundable:

The annual Membership Fee not refundable. Each Monthly Charge is not refundable.

To cancel the Blackbelt Profit System, you must call this number:

866-445-4241

These products, like the Blackbelt Profit System are all over the Internet. Before buying, always read the fine print hidden on the sales pages for more information.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I was in the middle of placing an order for this program when something STOPPED me. I googled it and found YOUR blog. I wish I could hug you. I canceled the order before I even placed it - Thank God.

All the best,
Stacy

John said...

Stacy, Thank you for your kind words and very happy to help. I don't know if this system works or not or if it is good or not. All I know is 150.00 up front and non-refundable is worth knowing before buying the product. Best of luck to you. Thank you for reading and your comment.

scott said...

If you try to cancel theirs no way to contact them.the phone number they provide is not in service, and they do not respond by email.Enter at your own risk.

Lashunda said...

I was in the middle of the order and I did in fact read that fine print and cancelled. $149.95 is quite a bit especially if the system doesn't work for you. What works for one person, doesn't necessarily mean that it will work for the next.

John said...

Lashunda, Yes, that is a bit of money. Thanks for reading and taking the time to leave a comment.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Happy to be of service. Thank you for reading and leaving a comment.

I wish I have of looked this site up first. I saw an new article tell you how this guy lost his job and now make $6000+ a month. It said all he had to do was list links on the internet. The company name was suppose to be "The internet home income". When I clicked on the link it routed me to blackbeltprofits. I entered my information and paid for the 14 day trial. They email me this link to open and it was how to run a business or start one up and market to businesses in the area to advertise their business. I called to cancel and apparently they were closed. So I hope I'm not doomed. I'll call tomorrow. But then I went back to this so called news article sponsered my news9tonight.com and pulled the same article up and clicked the link again and this time it sent me to a different site. I found this to be even more strange. So I would click anything on that page and it would take me to the same site again. Even if you clicked on the persons picture. Weird. I wish I knew this information before hand. I'm out of work and when I read this article and saw that big name companies so called sponsered this article, I thought, well this has to be an ok site because why would AOL, CNN, MSNBC,FOX, USA TODAY, advertise a scam? Well apparently that too was a fake. When you click on the names, it would take you to the same web site. Not only would it take you to a website to get your money, but if you tried to leave the site by clicking the x (close browser) button, it would display another page asking if you are sure you want to navigate from this money making website. But by then it was too late because I had already paid for my "trail period". Please.. beware and I hope that I can get out of this before it becomes more of a problem as it is already that I'm out of work. I guess when you're desprate, you're willing to try anything to be big money fast. But like my parents always told us, "If its to good to be true, then its too goof to be true". Not only that but now that I think about it, if people are making big money with little or no effort, then how come this isnt something that everyone knows about. It doesn;t make any sense. I wish I had of done more research before this. This is unlike me too. I usually do my home work before I spend my money. Even when I'm food shopping, I'll go to 3 stores if I can save money. But this time I didn't, I just hope I did not open a can of worms for myself. Anyone with any advice please email me, alrgaines@hotmail.com. Thank you in advance. But stay away.

Kristen said...

OMG I am so happy I googled this blog before I stupidly purchased this "money-making scam". I never usually buy into this crap but for some reason was starting to really believe it. Then looked it up before I did anything I might regret like try it out! I'm so sick of so many people in our world taking advance of everyone else, it feels like everything is a scam anymore for someone else to make a huge profit the problem is it's never us regular Americans! Thank you so much for being an honest person and letting people know what they don't want us to see

Lynt said...

wow, i knew there was a catch, and there was hardly any info, they see it on tv so its safe, I too was in the miidle of signing up but thought why if we are making money then why are we paying for the service. thank man.

Anonymous said...

I am also in the same class as 'Anonymous', when I saw that CNN and other well-known accredited organizations promoted this product, I immediately became very interested. I checked the Better Business Bureau site for their rating and additional information, however, the BBB did not offer anything. So I thought, what the heck, it's only going to cost me $.99.
I only became aware of the $149.95 non-refundable membership fee after reading your blog. That small print totally escaped me.

Wish me luck in recouping my money and thank you for providing this information.

I was about to purchase this scam money making plan. When whiler reading the testimonials I realized that the same exact testimony was made, but under two different names. The red flag went up and I googled and found out the company was under the name "Blackbelt Profit System". I continued to google and found this wonderful site that I am greatful for. Thank God for people who care to reach out to others to keep them from making what could be one of the biggest mistakes of their lives. "Warning this is a Waste of Time and Money!"

Beware of the Marie Thompson article, I live in New Market, IA and I have never heard of this person or about her making thousands of dollars working from home. I have also never seen this person anywhere around here.

Jenny Koenig said...

John thank you so much for this blog! I already work from home as a Tastefully Simple Consultant but thought why not try another home based business.I saw an ad on this and thought I should google it since alot of times these are scams. I don't like giving my info online because you never know who it is going to. So thankful for your info on this and glad I didn't go any further with it. I think I will stick with my website through tastefullysimple.com/web/jkoenig! THANKS AGAIN!!!!

rafael said...

Hello Everybody,
I did purchased this money scam,mistakenly, I didn't notice they would charge me USD 149.50 eventually (My Bad),I just called them to cancel this "scam membership" plus sent them an e-mail asking for my refund.

Do you think I will ever get my money back? Is there any place we can go lawsuit this people?

Anonymous said...

Wow. Thanks so much for this blog. I just saw the ad on a "newsonline6.com" ???and it does have the cnn, abc,bbc etc banner too, this is for a Kelly Richards of Cary, NC. I live in Cary and I'll really try to find if this is true. Anyway, I tried to find something else on this and found your blog. If it seems to good to be truth... good luck to all the ones already in. I'll keep you posted.
John I should send you the .99 they wanted for shipping of something> I am thinking... if you can find one million persons to give you .99, well that's already 1 million dollars, and in the internet age... Thanks again

Like some of you, I was so close to giving this a try because I am to the point of desperate, but I was uncomfortable with the annual membership fee without even knowing what the job entailed, so I stopped and googled Blackbelt Profit System to learn more. Thank goodness I found this blog! After reading the misfortune of Anonymous, I tried to call the 866 number given to speak with customer service. It directed to me to a voice mail at extension 0000. Shouldn't the FBI be notified about scams like this? So sorry for those of you who gave a credit card number to this. I would contact them to dispute the charge and lower your limit or cancel the card. Best wishes.

John said...

I don't know about any lawsuits. They are hard to prove and class action lawsuits take a great deal of time and money and these companies close up shop too quickly.

The FTC does get involved in these cases in the US, but again it takes time and money. A similar product called Google Money Tree was ordered shutdown by the FTC and advertising stopped immediately.

Send me .99? Yes, that would add up! But I am happy just getting the word out on these scam products and keeping people from wasting their money.

Thanks for reading and taking the time to post all.

DO NOT fall for this scam!! They're aren't even very creative...they use the same name "Kelly Richards" for every town. I live in Boise, ID and apparently she does too. Cha right. Thank you for this amazing blog. I almost fell for it myself, but as I was putting in the "promo" code to get the 99 cents deal, I accidentally misspelled the word "CASH" as "CASG". And it still gave me the discount? Hmm.... So I tried again with a new word, "SCAM". Yep, they still gave me the discount. Don't waste your time or money on this ridiculous scam!

Anonymous said...

Just want to confirm that I saw this article in News Channel 9 and put in my article and something told me to Google it....and low and behold...it is a scam. You only pay 99 cents to start and they will charge your care $149 in 14 days. I used a credit card and not a debit card just in case. Kudos to Chase credit card they took care of the situation right away. I lost 99 cents...but it could have been a lot worse...I am just like everyone else and need to make extra money....so if you have purchased...this thing...call your credit card company right away and let them know so they can help you from being further ripped off.

Thank You - for the word of advised you just helped a 6 or more people because of this blog- it almost made me loose my last remaining money.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for posting this. I totally stumbled across your blog! I did not read the fine prints when I put the order for the $0.99 cent trial (so unlike me but I needed/still need another source of income). As soon as I read your blog, I called the 1-866-445-4241 number they provided right by the fine prints and cancelled the order right away. They even gave me a cancellation number.

Again thank you so much for taking the time to warn people like me :)

I was so close to placing this order but i too had a feeling to stop and do some more research. I was just looking to find a second job online and thought this "blackbelt profit system" was perfect! But unfortunatlly it is JUST A SCAM!!! I was reading all the other comments and saw that there was a guy that said there was a lady named Kelly Richards from NC that made $6000 a mth, i saw the same name but she was from where I live FT.Campbell Ky. How funny is that!!!

Suzy said...

I saw two ads for this scam featuring two different moms who made money using it, so they say. I was curious to see what kind it was all about and clicked on each of the ads to compare. They were almost identical!! One of the pics of this 'mom' shown was the same for both ads for what were said to be two different people. Even the FAKE comments below the story (just two months difference) were EXACTLY the same!!

Joy said...

I wish I had found this site before I sent my card info and $3.95. The very next day they took $59.00 and two days later they took $149.00! And get this I didn't get any information just all withdrawer out of my account!I have called, emailed them, the local news, newspapers and now you all! I DEMAND MY MONEY BACK!! HELP!

I thought I was getting a great deal. Who wouldn't? I called the number at first I got a voicemail then finally I got someone on the phone. Anyways I asked why I had not gotten my package on the 9th like it said. He told me he would reset my password. PASSWORD!! What was he talking about. He told me that I would be emailed a link to get to my order. I paid $3.95 for shipping. Wow, it cost to send emails now. THIS IS A SCAM! Hands down! I was surfing the net this morning guess what I seen. The Gadsden mom Kelly Richards is now Melissa Johnson from a local town near me. I clicked on the site (curious) and it took me to Robert Allen's get rich quick scam. These people need to be stopped! There is limited info on these sites. the post that are on the sites claiming they are happy and making money are closed. they don't want anyone posting blogs like this.
Thank God I canceled my card.

karen said...

This online order was not completed, and the "decline" option was clicked when I saw the amount to be charged, and I still was charged. Non working phone numbers, no response phony "ticket" numbers, and then my "account" disappeared and they said there was nothing they can do and they hung up on me. I called back to cancel. They said their system was having a problem so call back. I did and they said I cannot be refunded and hung up. The order was never finalized! They took my card and that was that. I have cancelled my credit card account and blocked this merchant, and that is the only way I can stop them. They have an "F" rating with the BBB. FTC is aware of them and is in a "process", I have sent a letter to the FLorida Attorney General, but hard to catch them as they keep changing companies. BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY!! Many headaches and frustration.

Becky said...

I always check these sites out. I have never found one that is legit. Is there one? I've looked on websites that research "work at home" internet companies and they have suggested surveys. I joined a bunch of survey sites and never once have I qualified so that was a bust. If anyone knows how to make money on the internet, I'd like to hear about it.

Anonymous said...

I spent all day trying to call for a refund. I finally got a "supervisor" to give me the physical address, which was in Cypress!!! I can't even get my Credit Card company (Chase--thanks for the help) to dispute this charge. Wonder if they got the Nigerian Prince working for them???

John said...

If anyone knows how to make money on the internet, I'd like to hear about it.

Set up websites using free blog sites like blogger. Write about a topic a) you are interested in, b) you have some knowledge about and c) has the potential to make money.

Example: I created a blog about a certain type of food which is predominantly sold on the internet only. I joined the affilate program from one of the manufacturers, added their advertisement links on my blog and started posting articles about this type of food. I generally make about 1-3 sales a month and the average commission is anywhere from $60.00 to 175.00 each. I also put some Adsense and Kontera ads and make a few dollars from those programs as well. Total cost? Time, no money.

I signed up for the 99 cent shipping option to receive information and watched my mail but never received anything at all. I forgot about it cause it was just 99 cents, but then thought I might contact them just cause I really did want to see the information. They told me they had sent me an email with my login and password which I NEVER received. I had assumed it would be regular mail since I was paying shipping and handling. I checked my inbox, trash, and spam and nothing was there. They told me the 14 day period was up and the $149 charge could not be refunded. I took it up with my credit card company, Capital One, and they are currently disputing the charges for me.

Please do not use Blackbelt profits. It is awful.

Benjamin said...

STAY AWAY. First, I never remember sigining up with this company. I had no idea why I was charged 149.99 until I saw my CC statement. I called the company and after challenging them boldly, I was told I was going to get a refund. Never happened. I am now dealing with Wells Fargo dispute department to try and get credited the amount. I never received, logged in, or used any benefits from Black Belt Profits. I think this company should be shut down. They may as well have held a gun to my back and robbed me in an alley. Do not do business with them ever. Bad business with bad morals and no code of ethics. I believe all of the blogs here to be accurate. Nothing but a head ache for me and 149.99 was taken from me to which I never even received so much as a password to the website. Don't buy or think about using this service. STAY AWAY.

I desparately needed to earn some extra money to help pay off my student loans and credit card debt when I came across the black belt news article. I usually don't fall for scams but I thought 99 cents that won't hurt much. That was a month ago. I just checked my bank account and I discovered a charge for 69.95. I immediately called(1-877-330-3684) and cancelled the membership. I wish i'd read this before I purchased this crap. Oh well another lesson learned. Does anyone have any advice on how to get my money back?

I had put in half of the numbers on my debit card, when I thought..WAIT... I googled, and came across this blog, THANK YOU!! And yes, the girl in the advertisement, same photo is also from my hometown.. a really rural town here in middle Georgia. They were charging me $2.97, I almost did it.... I get scared thinking about it after reading these post about the poor people who did do it. I am recebtly disabled, but I have worked hard labor all my life, and now down to Social Security Disability.. wanted to try an make a little extra. If I had went through with this and had been debited that extra money, my finances would have very soon been in complete shambles. I am on a very strict budget.. thank you so much for this information, God Bless those of you in struggle to re-coop your money, I will say a prayer.

My aunt printed an article that she saw on a webpage regarding that scam and gave it to me.Good thing I tend to do research before engaging myself in any kind of deal like this one.I am very skeptical about this kind of advertisement and giving my personal information online.So I want to thank you , for putting such a valuable information out there and alert people about this unfortunate thing.

About a week ago, I came across a scam and fell for it. Since I paid my $4.77 shipping, all I was given was a list of products to promote. I have not received my kit in the mail yet either. I have been trying to figure out ways to promote this stuff and trying to make it work. This is not what I was supposed to be doing either. I called to cancel but they are not answering, and they are going to charge me another $84 in two days.

I Just want to thank everyone for posting this blog.I was in the middle of putting my credit card number in when something told me to look this up...Thanks so much everybody.

The same manner in which weather sites provide you local weather (via IP address ranging), is the way that this scam site shows a seemingly real person living near you. Others in other areas of the country will see the same story (although different photo & name) to give the illusion that it is someone in your neck of the woods. Mowing your neighbor's lawn, raking leaves or power washing houses for $25-$100 is a more-realistic approach to some cashflow... Be sure to file your 1099 tax forms if it makes too much in a given tax year! :~)

I Just want to thank everyone for posting this blog.I was in the middle of putting IN my info when something told me to look this up...Thanks so much everybody.I was reading alot of the cmments and see that "Kelly Richards" live in multiple states. An ad came up for where i live and it said she also lived there and she was a single mother of two and her first check was $6000 and she decided to quite both of her jobs because she made better money from doing basically nothing.Let me be the one to tell you this. This so-called program is tied into like 10 to 20 different scam sites that all say the say. learn how to make X amount of $$$ from how everyday or if you know how to type you can work for companies like CNN,MNSBC,CBS.and yeah the new one is working for companies like Home Dept,Target,walmart,Bed Bath and Beyond just to name a few. I was awhole lot younger when I first read into one of these programs I got scammed. My bank account was charged $3.97 for the free trial then two days later I got charged $149 and then another two days after that I was charged $39.95. I tried to call and cancel the whole thing and the person i spoke with said they didn't know what company I was talking about. I called the bank and gave them the dates and the amounts that were so-called approved by me and told them to cancel them or send me something so i could dispute all these false charges.Please be careful when you sign-up for programs on the internet please.....Its bad enough we are all in a recession ,but now they have have folks who don't care about that and will rob you of close to $200 just to make a living while you suffer and try to fix their misleading mistakes.....
