Home Income Profit System (Home Income Wealth System)
Reviews – Legit or Scam?

The Home Income Profit System (recently renamed The Home Income Wealth System) is a now notorious internet scheme that claims to help you make money from home. Their make money kit is often promoted through the use of fake newspaper articles and other unscrupulous means.

You may have seen “news articles” talking about a Kelly Richards (who incidentally lives in your area) and how much money she made working online. If you look at the article more carefully you’ll see that it’s nothing but a farce, closely resembling what real news sites commonly look like.

It comes as no surprise to me that Home Income Wealth System is almost a direct copy of previous make money online scams called Home Income Profit System, Home Income Black, and BlackBelt Profit System among others. This sort of tactic is often used by experienced online scammers…

When the customer complaints start piling up they simply give it a new name, move some graphics around, and start over fresh.  This process goes on and on while they continue to generate hundreds of thousands of dollars from unsuspecting customers.

If this seems hard to believe just take a look at the two screen shots from BlackBelt Profit Systems and The Home Income Profit System.

Update 09/28/10: The Home Income Profit Kit is now also sold as the “Home Income Wealth System”

The reason why there’re so many complaints against these types of kits is because the companies running them use very shady billing practices.  They offer the program as a Free Trial, charging you only several dollars for S&H, but as soon as they get your credit card details they quickly hit you with a much larger charge.

Take a look at their terms and conditions:

When you submit your order, you agree to pay the shipping and handling fee of $2.97 for your Road Map to Success; please allow up to two weeks for delivery.   After your 3-day trial period, you will be charged a ONE TIME fee of $139.95 for the product that will not be billed again for access to all of the features above. Thereafter, a $4.95 fee will serve as a monthly website hosting and maintenance fee until canceled.

They say that it can take up to two weeks to receive your materials, yet they charge you after just 3 days!  So basically there’s no chance of you having enough time to review the materials and decide if it’s worth the $139.95 + $4.95 a month. Some people have even reported being charged the $139.95 fee the same day as their order.

The other problem with this type of billing is that many people don’t even read the terms and only find out about the true costs when it’s already too late. In addition, lots of people have reported difficulties reaching customer support in order to cancel the trial or get a refund.

So what do you get with the Home Income Wealth System, and can you really make money using it?

Well what you get is several website templates and instructions telling you to promote products from your website. While some marketers do make money promoting products online, you’ll never succeed with the Home Income Profit/Wealth System and here’s why…

They don’t actually teach you how to do it.  The course materials are purposefully incomplete to make it easier for their telemarketers to up-sell you costly coaching and mentoring programs. Moreover, they don’t tell you upfront that you’ll need to spend money on advertising for your website, a tactic that doesn’t always pay for itself and can lead to losses, especially when you’re just learning internet marketing.

This, coupled with the fact that you’re already out over $140 in unexpected charges can be a real blow to most folks.

If these guys really did have a product that could teach you how to make money online then they wouldn’t have to use deceptive billing and false advertising to get customers.  A high value product would make them enough money on its own merit and they wouldn’t have to keep changing the name, not to mention they might actually generate testimonials instead of complaints.

  • I find it absolutely disgusting that web scams like this grace the Internet preying on people to click sign up and be at the bitter end of paying for something they thought there could be a gain from.
  • I feel sorry for those of you who have fallen for these scams. I really do. You are NOT stupid or gullible. You are just honest people, like me, who NORMALLY would spot an obvious scam right off. But these tricksters have spent a long time honing their methods and know just how to trick honest, hard-working people.

    TWO tricks I have noticed these sites use to immediately grasp our attention, which I will call 'HOOKS' - (1) You are immediately drawn in by a photo of a nice, young mother who (WOW!) lives in your own hometown, nice smile, nice baby. If she can do it, so can you. She could be your next-door-neighbour. She wouldn't trick you surely!!

    (2) This amazing offer is available to you for just 1.95 USD but expires...not in a month, 3 weeks...no...TONIGHT...oh, 45 minutes from now. Better fill this form in quick, get those credit card details in fast before you miss out.

  • I was thankfully never going to buy into these schemes, but I did want to see how they work, and what they do to get people to believe them and give them money. I know someone who was supposed to get paid to be a "secret shopper" and that never came to fruition either. I know desperate times call for desperate measures, and a lot of the times they make these websites and testimonials very convincing. However, the rule of "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Stop and take a second and consider someone who might actually make the money they "guarantee you", and you will hopefully realize that whatever they have you doing on the computer can't compare to a nurse (on the lower end making 5-6k), and a dr or possibly a computer programmer (both who can make 15-20k a month). The list goes on. This is 100% buyer beware and if it looks too good to be true it probably is). Hopefully people keep sharing their real stories and word gets out about these websites. My question is, what can we do to make sure these websites are shut down and stop targeting people.
    • I have OFTEN looked at but only twice purchased garbage like this! I must have been living a charmed life at the time or something, because I have never NOT gotten my money back when I asked for it ( those 2 times), and I have been super-cautious since then. Where can I find a truely legitimate place to make money online? DO THEY ACTUALLY EXIST? I sorta agree with you about the fact that these scammers need to be punished for taking advantage of the needy & economically desparate but just like the fact that a dead murderer never kills again, a dead thief NEVER STEALS AGAIN! Let's put all of them in their own personal electric chair! I'D PULL THE FREAKIN' SWITCH MYSELF!!!!! PLEASE, BE CAREFUL, FOLKS!!!!!
    • If the government really wanted to catch these people, they could. They can catch pedophiles and people who hack bank accounts,so why not these crooks? These crooks deserved to be stripped naked and horsewhipped in public.
  • Thank you for this story and the screen shots were very enlightening. I was just looking at a site called "Securing Net Income"which displayed all the aforementioned symptoms. There are always 2 rules I encourage everyone to follow. 1: If it's too good to be true, it probably isn't. 2: If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. So I did a quick search, found this website and those screen shots of "Blackbelt" and etc. were practical replicas of this "Securing Net Income". Please keep adding more screenshots whenever you can and I request if you could also add a screen shot of this "Securing Net Income" site too.

    Thanks again.
    • Me too. I almost signed up for "SecuringNetIncome". What a coincidence, this US company website had it's main photo and testimonial of "Melissa Johnson" living in MY OWN HOMETOWN on the other side of the world. Yeah, right!! Followed by all of these too-good-to-be-true personal success stories. What it doesn't tell you straight up is that for ONLY 1.95 USD you can start earning straight away - oh but, wait...they will take 39.95 USD out of your account every month. There are no hidden fees and no long-term contracts. There is a phone number you can call to cancel but I wonder how well that works. Thank goodness I read the T&Cs before submitting my credit card details. The domain has only been active for about a month, but the testimonials say these people have been earning from this for longer!! Thanks for the warning.
  • Thank you to all who generously posted your experiences. My practice is to always search "user comments" when considering employment on any named company. Taking the time to relay your experience greatly helps others. Good luck to you all and please do go back to post any positive examples you may run across! Peace.
  • Interesting... I just read the information posted here and realized how lucky some of you have actually received some type of info.

    I've received absolutely nothing. No info. No active website. No actual contact info...nothing whatsoever.

    Initially, there was a website that could be set up. I imagine it was onlt to get you interested enough to want to actually want to try to make this work, however that lasted approximately 2days. Just long enough to process my credit card for 3 separate payments. $97.00 + $29.97 + $9.97...

    I never received anything in the mail. I received no more information from anyone. I even purchased an upgrade to their program and when the upgrade failed to activate, I submitted a ticked requesting their assistance. Well we all know how well that worked.scam

    Today the website doesn't even exist anymore. So, with all that said and done, I hope everyone else out there has learned something from this. Learn from those of us who were trusting enough to buy into this program and lose. All we wanted was a way to be able to make some extra money and we paid the price for that trust.

    I hope you also learned something from this as well. I hope you learned that you cannot trust anyone regardless of who they are or what they say. You MUST check out everything and for the most part it's still probably still a scam.

    They're smart. They're good at what they do and if they put this much effort into a legitimate business, they would do amazingly well and that is the scarry part. They are masters at what they do and for those of us who are desperately trying to find a way to make a little extra money the honest way, we are prime targets.

    So, pay attention and learn from our mistakes and maybe, just maybe you can avoid being taken advantage by those who care about no one but themselves.

    Good luck.
  • ANYTHING that appears too easy is a scam. Never give out personal information on bank account, social security number or anything that identifies you. It allows people to open credit in your name.

    Paying money as a start up appears to be a scam. Most employment opportunities creates money for the company. WHY, pay a company for you to work? Seeking employment is based on YOU needing money.
  • Ok so can any of you guys tell us some real honest home income sites?
  • Well I was hustled about this fantastic money maker and almost signed up for it but decided to check CNN news that this money maker had stated was supported by.

    Well lord and behold CNN was just saying the opposite in that this company was no more than a scam that changed their name frequently to stay ahead of the Laws.

    But if you want to tip the dancing bear, go ahead.

  • i was surfing the internet when i came across this ad about making money from home and how much you can make part time,it was the lady that lost her job and started making alot of money at home spending time with her kids. it sounded good but when i tried to get on the websight, my security said it was a websight they didnt regonize and wouldnt let me in so i typed in the webpage and a bunch of websights came out including this one,so i clicked on it an read all the reviews, thanks everyone for the heads up, my advice to everyone, research before signing up for anything, if it looks to good to be true it probably is, making that kind of money part time more than a hard working person full time doesn't sound right, it reminds me of a friend i had in the navy, she signed up to be a mystery shopper, and she did not research, her bank account was empty before she knew it, so my advice to people is please do your home work, there are no get rich quick jobs out there that are legitimate, hope this helps
