Summary: A website created on October 2015 by a team of known scammers operating somewhere out of Panama. This version is being presented by a fake alias known as ‘Emily Young’. I do not recommend this and as I explain in this review, there’s some very real risks in signing up despite the low price.
Price: $1- $10,000’s
What Is Income From Home Academy?
This is a website designed for three reasons:
- Make a quick buck out of unsuspecting people
- Immediately up sell people into much higher ticket items, followed by an aggressive telemarketing campaign
- Rent and/ or sell a persons information to whoever’s buying
As you can see, none of these are about helping you make an income online.
I’ve reviewed tons of these websites and they all have these three things in common as well as using some of the sleaziest marketing tactics in the book.
For example, a review I published about 3 months ago links to another version of this same program known as the Earn at Home Club that is also associated with Emily. In the above review you’ll also see how I was able to prove they were using stock photos in these testimonials and the name ‘Rachel Heinz’ was also used- just like it is below only using a different picture.
The point is, nothing these people are telling you is real. Everything is scripted.
Another trick they use is pretending to be affiliated with news networks and using news videos that really have nothing at all to do with this business:
This is just a marketing tactic used to reduce your level of perceived risk and trust them enough to hand over your details and fork out a few dollars.
They have zero affiliation with any kind of reputable third party I can assure you, if you scroll down to the bottom of the sales page you’ll find that they reveal this in the fine print for legal reasons.
The Real Cost Involved
The website initially states the cost for this program is $4.95, but after clicking away a few times they offer it to you for $1. This in itself is a dead giveaway you’re looking at a steaming pile of you know what, but that’s not the half of it…
Cost upon purchasing: $1
Cost after 3 days: $39
Cost every month thereafter: $39
Automatic hidden charge for a separate program: $1 per month until cancelled
As you can see, the real price is hidden amongst a very deceptive pricing strategy which a lot of people do not read.
One of the reasons for this is the small print of course, but the timer they use (along with the hype) increases a person’s sense of urgency and encourages them to purchase the program without looking at all the facts in the fine print.
Now, the price in itself isn’t bad IF you were actually getting access to a legitimate product, but this product is just like the last 1000 websites these guys have put up. That is, some very generic training you could find online for free (better quality too I might add) that promotes a host of other programs they are currently affiliated with.
How Safe Is Your Information?
In my opinion, not very.
After these guys make a front end sale off people their main priority is convincing you to purchase much higher ticket products including ‘coaching’ programs costing well into the $1000’s. They primarily accomplish this by calling you with a bunch of telemarketing offers, followed by spam emails and text messages.
Unfortunately, it’s worse than just annoyingly pushy sales people.
Not only will your name, email, address and phone number be used by these people, but they absolutely will rent and sell your information to the highest bidder. This is big business in the online world and they are clearly in this to make as much as they can off people.
So you’ll have one bunch of anonymous people operating somewhere out of Panama with your personal info, who will then sell it onto other anonymous folks with no way of knowing what they will do with it…
Not very cool to say the least.
What I Liked
I can honestly say there is nothing I like about this.
What I Didn’t Like
- Deceptive marketing hype
- Fake testimonials and alias’s
- Bogus income screenshots used over and over again on many of their websites
- Program holds very little value and after considering the risks is not even worth $1 in my opinion
- Your personal information is not safe despite telling people in some sections of their policy that it is
- I cannot stand pushy telemarketers
Programs like this are all about taking advantage of unsuspecting people and rushing them into making a buying decision before doing their research. The whole ‘limited spots available’ thing and the time limit on receiving your ‘special offer’ is all fake, much like everything else on their website.
It is possible to make money on the internet but buying ‘push button’ programs like this won’t help you achieve success I can assure you.
Instead, they will send you from one ‘amazing’ product to the next, to the next hoping to find an answer. The only people making money out of this is the gurus behind it. No one achieves success online overnight and programs like this are designed to sell people false hope rather than a real solution.
I do not recommend this to anyone. It is a straight up scam.
