Tuo Shelf is a scam

I have had since I signed with nothing but bad things happen to me since I signed with Top Shelf to build me a web site so I could earn extra money to retire on. I have had the same experiences as most people have had with them. I have lost $11,000.00 with them and another $10,000 to help me build a web site out of the crap Top Shelf sold me, Now Top shelf has shut my web site and from what I have read many others also. Top Shelf should be held responsible for what they have done many people. I am very pissed off also.

Charging way to much for website setup.

My site has been up for 5 months and absolutely no sales. All they tell you is to keep posting on social media. 4200.00 for this? And then shortly after I signed up, they wanted another 7000.00!!!!! For what I can tell, to get in better with Google I think. Thank goodness I didn't do that!!! What a joke! DON'T fall for this or you will lose a lot of money!! Can't believe I fell for this, all this money to set up a simple site thru Word Press. OMG! I have tried to get them to respond thru email because I want everything in writing and all they do is call you back and ask you to call them. Terrible customer service, always taking the site down without notification and way too expensive for what they do. Then they just now tell me that they are using THEIR supplier for this drop ship site when I told them in the beginning that I had my own supplier. Please be wary...

Top Shelf Marketing - Internet Marketing Service Review

Everything reviewers said is right on. Exactly what happened to us. We lost $16,000. Had conversations with Bob Johnston, President of company. When I called asking for him I was put on hold, not for Bob but so they could pull up my info. B-U-T I did use my real name for that very reason. There is no Bob Johnston. They are a *** bag rip-off. After you sign with Top Shelf, Position Gurus called with more promises of course more money involved. We have been burned very badly with additional companies. They pass your file around once they know you are an easy mark. BEWARE AND DO NOT AGREE TO ANYTHING! They come across so creamy smooth but underneath are poison darts.

Top Shelf E-commerce social Media / internet marketing Gimmicks scam .

This companies uses hi pressure unethical sales methods to *** you into paying thousands of dollars of Social Media marketing gimmicks. They verbally promised that with-in 3 months of signing a contract with them I would see a significant increase in traffic to my web site and increase of sales. After 6 month I received zero "0" traffic to my site and therefore "0" income for which I have now been forced to look at bankruptcy do to the fact "0" incomes means "0" money to pay my CC charges in the thousands of dollars created by Top Shelf e-Commerce "*** artist". Yes, I made the mistake of signing or initialing there contract with the intent I could cancel with-in 3 days if I didn't agree. To my demise "3" days is nowhere enough time to review the contract especially if you intend to run it by your attorney. For which I adamantly recommend. When they send it to you to sign first print off a copy, do not sign or initial, and take it to an attorney to go over with you. The attorney fee is minor to the money Top Shelf and many other marketing cons artist will rob you of. Were talking thousands of dollars. There contracts are a boiler plate document that contains a list of there social media and internet marketing gimmicks that do not provide any return on your so called investment. They check the box for the gimmick you purchased and the other 9 pages are legal mumble jumble on how you will never get your money back. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this company or any of there affiliates as if it were the black plague.

Top Shelf's Server is Down for at least one week now.

I bought a website from Top Shelf and they said they would train me on Marketing my website. First of all, they do not know google analytics so I never would show up on google. I never received one customer from my website because all they do is show you how to post ads about your website on social media. Rip off training as well. Now my sight has been down at least a week. No phone call from them letting me know what is going on. I would like to get my money back from this BOGUS COMPANY! When they called me to offer their services, they said "You should be making money within three months" I have not earned one penny and had to take on a part time job to pay off the credit cards that I charged for their *** Website"

Wow I have the same issue

#1274153

I suggest you google or yahoo search on the words: Top Shelf Marketing FTC. If this is the same one, they have had legal action against them. I don't know if it's the same company or not.

@PissedConsumer1274153

It is the same company! Just read another letter here from October, that person received correspondence from the FTC about this company. I suggest you go to that complaint and read the letter from the FTC and perhaps file a complaint with them as well.

Top Shelf Marketing Customer Care Review

They stall on teaching. They give me homeworks and every question I have takes them weeks to respond. One of their excuses are that they are still in training. My site is down for days and they told me that it was due to a major security breach..they also tried to take more money out me, $2,000, promising me better results to advertise my site. Every single person who calls me are very aggressive.

Top Shelf Marketing - Ftc just sent me a letter
They are taking them down. See the attached letter, they are sending these out. Finally there seems to be a little justice. I had pretty much made it a hobby to get some response and this might be of some encouragement to others. Do not just let this kind of thing slide. ***If you have an issue with these guys it may be worth your while to look at what I copied for you. The letter pretty much says it all, but do not depend on getting things like this in other cases, check out the background first, like you are probably doing by coming here. All of the very Best to you. Green Dog Best Victor

Would you please post the letter from the FTC. I can not get my credit card company to reverse the charges I made to Top Shelf. If I could show them the letter, maybe they would then believe me.

I will be looking into this, I seem to be getting no where with these guys. Thanks

Scammed Services for $7,800

http://www.top-shelf-marketing.com/ scammed me for my last penny! I dont know why i even bothered to sign up with them. I had a website and a salesman from there called me to sign me up for SEO Marketing 2.0! HA what a joke. Its been close to 5 months and no sales or traffic. DO NOT TRUST THIS SITE!!When I complained about this, they asked for another $5k to complete the process for me! By then, I had realized that the money spent had been wasted and have filed complaints with the BBB and the FTC. Keep in mind they are also known as The Tax Club and Success Planning!

This company is a joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spend your money with them at your own peril.

They are the old tax club which by connection, they should all be in jail.

A bunch of f*$%king loosers.......

#791800

They are now going by Reliable Business Consultants, diff name same scummy people operating the scam. They are also known as Executive Business concepts as the owner is a complete *** and had his linkedin as that name. What complete dirt.

#704826

If anyone believes that these companies offer legit services for that amount of money then you may want to get an hourly job you are not a business owner and are chasing get rich quick schemes. These rooms open up quickly and then their merchants shut down until they put it in someone elses name.

Don't believe any of these Biz Opp, Coaching, SEO, MLM, and whatever you want to call it next week. Call the Attorney General Office and get your 7800 back!!!!!

#701787

I've been working with them for about 3 months now and they have been great. Whenever I call in for advice they go above and beyond to help me resolve

My issues. And when the original poster made this complaint they were not even in business for that long as long as he stated according to state records, you

Shouldn't slander a company because you're a miserable ***.

Are you still working with them, and now what has been your experience?

#676613

They are the same people who worked for the tax club just a diff name. Same scam different title

#669912

Just another boiler room scam.. They called me and tried to rack up my credit card.

Got it all recorded though and sent it in to the FTC.. Only time until they crumble...

#668084

The whole company is a scam... They were the tax club..

Google "FTC tax club law suit". FTC has been informed and already knows...

#625095

Just looked them up in state records and they haven't even been open for 5 months. You're a liar.
