Home Wealth Formula Reviews – Legit or Scam?

Home Wealth Formula


Home Wealth Formula, by Mark Starr, is a new work at home business promoting a link posting opportunity. According to their site, you will be paid an average of $15 per link you post for a major corporation. Their math shows that you can earn almost $60,000 a year posting links for just one hour a day.

Unfortunately, this is incredibly misleading. Home Wealth Formula has purposefully left out many of the details involved in link posting to make it seem like an easier, more profitable opportunity.

Link posting is actually a form of affiliate marketing. You are posting links for other companies, however, you must pay to post these links. And after you have paid money to post these links, you will only be paid after someone not only clicks the link, but the purchases the product that link is promoting.

So, not only do you not get paid to post a link (but rather earn a commission when a product is purchased) you also must pay your own money to post that link.  This means you actually have a chance to lose money on this opportunity, which is not mentioned anywhere on the Home Wealth Formula website.

Link Posting Certification

Over the past six months to a year, the “link posting certification” class has become one of the biggest markers of a scam.  First of all, you need no certification to post links.  Anyone can do it at any time, and all they have to do is join up with Google AdWords.  In fact, the Google AdWords program will give you pretty much all the knowledge you need to use their program for free.

In addition, link posting has been around so long and is such a cornerstone of affiliate marketing at this point, you can head to almost any online forum searching for info on link posting and likely find much more sophisticated and helpful information from real world affiliate marketers then you will find in this “link posting certification” class.

Second, every company claims that they have “the only certified program in the world,” when, in fact, tons of companies are offering this worthless certification.  These companies have to find a reason to make you pay them for information that you could easily find for free, so they have created this program. Fortunately for us, this program has become a clear sign that potential customers should just walk away.

Other Red Flags

Another red flag against Home Wealth Formula is that the website is being advertised by a multitude of fake news sites. Fake news sites are promotional advertisements made to look like online newspapers.  This is intended to trick people into believing that advertising claims and slogans should be taken as fact. Companies that entice customers through the use of fake news sites are nearly always scams.

Yet another red flag for Home Wealth Formula is that their payment page security verification tags are simply photos, cut and pasted from another website.  If they were legitimate, they would act as links taking you to another page which explained the security verification process.

    What a joke!!!!! DON’T DO IT…..DON’T DO IT!! I actually thought about it and before I did I called my brother and asked him if he thought this crap was for real and he said he never sent me the email. I somehow knew in my gut that it wasn’t for real because my brother isn’t a real big email fan.
    I can’t believe these scam artists and unfortunately people still fall for it.

    Thank you, just started my research and negative reviews all over internet about this work at home, although sounds too good to be true. Actually in China i think those scammers would not last long, they hang them there for being a parasite.Totally useless, totally useless for the economy etc.Those people have to be punished for their scam. Arrest and send them to jail, they belong there.

    I just got taken in by this scam. I got an email from a contact that looked like it was from a family member. It looked real, and trustworthy. After signing up, I called my family member to say thanks for the info, but I was told that he didn’t send it to me. Upon closer inspection, one letter in the email address was capitalized instead of being all lower case. I didn’t catch that at first. Needless to say, I feel like an idiot, and hope Jesus will help me recover my money.

    Can’t believe I fell for this too and went against my better judgment and signed up for this! I too had received the link from a friend who I later found out did not send the email. Very quickly came to my senses and did some research and came across this website. Thank you all for your comments and advice. Just to say I rang the number on my statement and asked for a full refund based on the 60 day full refund guarantee as I no longer felt it was suitable fro me to continue with the program. I was given another customer services number 00-1-866-999-2912 (call after 7pm from the UK due to time difference and its cheaper too and have your order ID number to hand) where the lady asked if I would like the membership at half price! I declined obviously and she cancelled the membership there and then. I received a confirmation of cancellation e mail within 2 hours and have just received a full refund back into my account 5 days later. I guess you learn by your mistakes and by reading websites like this one!

    even if you dont sign up for em… just go to the actual sign up page and try to change the site to a diff page… you will get a pop up window that tells you are you sure blah blah blah then they reduce the 97$ fee down to 77$ then if you do it once again they reduce it again from 77$ to 47$ hahaha… so yep this is a pretty big scam

    This website is a total scam!! My mother sent 100 dollars to Greg (She did not read the reviews first) because an email was sent to her about it, but when she called the sender she said that she never sent the email!! My mother told me and I told her to always research before sending ANY money to an internet organization that you have not used before. So we looked up reviews, and now she knows why. She gave Greg her credit card number, and now she is terrified that he will do something and spend her money! This entire organization is a gigantic scam and no one should EVER use this site unless they want to LOSE money!!!!!!

    I was about to sign up for this opportunity because I could use the money, especially with X-mas around the corner. The last time I came across it, I didn’t have the funds. They kept reducing the price every time I tried to get off the site.
    I recently received an email forwarded from a family member, and thought it may just be legit.I read some of the reviews on their site, which were all in their favor. I thought it to be suspicious, so I Googled it for more information. Whala! I’m here. I am so glad I researched it before I bought into it. I was hoping this would be the real thing, but I am grateful for all the warnings I found here. I thank God and all of you for sharing your experiences here. Pay attention to the warnings going off in your head when you come across things like this. It’s true when people say “if it sounds too good to be true,it probably is.”

    Hi I just received this email stating how good this opportunity was and any one with a computer can make $350 a day for 60 minuets work a day. It stank of a scam, so I Googled “Online Income Solution” Then I got several listings showing that this was a SCAM, your site is great for listings these SCAM’s. After reading a few of the complaints it was obvious that this Online Income Solution was another internet SCAM.

    Hello all–well since this was sent from a friend, I decided to try it out even though it has SCAM written all over it. I initially got overcharged (97 instead of 50). Then when I proceeded anyway, they wanted $15 to build your website and then it says they bill you every 24 mos for the monthly web site fee. Well it’s very misleading that they don’t tell you when you submit they will charge this monthly fee up front so the total ends up being over $200! They don’t even have a page to confirm the amount before you submit your payment! Total scam. Anyway I called the 800 number and it was supposedly easy enough to get my money back (the 97). Since I used a difft card for the $200 that might be more of a headache but I contacted the web site company and they said all would be refunded minus the $15 fee for website which is ridiculous. So hopefully only out $15 for my stupidity. We shall see.

    After going through the comments, I tried payment by giving wrong Credit card Number. The site claims that payments are handled through SSL (on secured socket layer) which uses HTTPS protocol. However, when you enter your credit card number and click on “Process Order” button, the protocol remains same as HTTP. The payment is not secure.

    I got an e-mail from a friend from church who had recently lost his job. He has 8 years of college, and teaches. The message stated that this had gotten him back on his feet when he thought all was lost, and this is no joke. I was a bit suspicious due to the fact that the message had no capitals or punctuation.

    As I tried to get off of the web page, the price kept coming down. When it got to $49.95, I bit. The next day they charged me the original $97. I called the 866-876-0083 number on my bank statement, and was told that they were a third party company that billed for Home Wealth Formula. When I told her that I had been overcharged, and the amount, she said “no problem, the company has a 60 day money back guarantee”. I then said “well, then, give it all back”. This was on 11-08-2011. I got the full $97 back on 11-14. I was shocked, I figured that it was my dues for stupidity.

    By this time, I had seen my friend, and of course he didn’t send it. He has since changed his e-mail address. I wonder that, by clicking on the link, whether I now have the virus that send this fake e-mail to everyone in his address book? Time will tell.

    The computer goes in to get de-bugged next week. I can’t believe that I bought Loral Langemeier’s book and fell for this in the same year. Must be getting soft in the head.

    Hi, I got my money back. i told them that it was way too complex and it was false advertising and i wanted my money back and they gave it to me.

    The link was given to me by my friend, when I contacted her she said she never send it at all and that someone must have hacked into her g mail account.

    i hope this helps you.

    I was stupid enough for not listening to my husband and signed up for this SCAM. Till the last step, there was some problem with the cookies/ java issue that my payment did not go through, for which I’m only too glad. I immediately called the card company and blocked all transactions if there was any.

    Another Red Flag that Home Wealth Formula System must be a scam of some kind is that in order to try to solicit people to join, someone hacked into my friends email and sent everyone in her address book an email including me saying it was so easy and to try it. Making it look like your friend had sent you the email with a link to their site. If a product is truly a good and legitimate, why would one resort to such an underhanded and sneaky way to try to sell it…tricking people into thinking the site was being recommended and the link to the site sent to them from a friend!

    I got an email from a trusted friend and clicked on the link. It talked about a local Louisville, KY woman who found this incredible online gig. I was skeptical, but read through all the mumbo jumbo to see what it was all about. I’m so tired of “working for the man”, and everything I read was what I wanted in a job. I did notice some typos and discrepancies throughout the schpeal, but saw all the news logos & such, & it came from a friend, so I started going through the process. In the mean time, I emailed my friend asking where he found the link/website/article. It wasn’t until I was entering my info and hitting the “process” button thatI noticed the page read that it was secured, but there was no little padlock icon depicting that it was an actual secured site… THANK GOD I was trying to sign up from my phone instead of an actual computer because the transaction couldn’t process because of java and cookie issues. My friend emailed back saying someone hacked his gmail account. I’m sure glad my phone made me listen to my original skepticism :)

    I am sure glad that I recently started googling things I am not too sure about. I get an e mail from a friend and the funny thing is we recently met and we’ve only emailed a few time and after that I don’t hear from her in a few weeks. And when I do its a link saying check this out so I click on the link andits about a single mother struggling to pay her bills and so on and how she found a money making gig that got her now living the american dream for only a few hours a day. And how it was all on the news and crap. So then she reveals how she got her financial freedom. Theirs already a link on there for out and I click on it and read the whole thing and basically its a %100 guarantee your going to make hundreds of thousands of dollars all from the comfort of your home it sounds too good to be true. So I’m overall convinced its legit so I go on you tube and search it and I couldn’t find 1 person talking about how this program changed their lives and all. So I google it and thats where I find out its a SCAM and I almost fell for it. And for those of you who did fall for it I feel sorry for you and I hope you can get your money back…

    I think a one-star is too high a rank for this company. If there was a choice for negative rankings, I would so mark it.

    I wished I had found out about this site earlier. I spent the $126 last night. Unfortunately, it’s Sunday and I can’t call my credit card to cancel/block the payment and when I try to call Home Wealth Formula, of course, I can’t get a hold of them.

    At first, I got an e-mail from a trusted friend, thinking that it was her sending the information (this was about a week ago). I checked the link in the e-mail and was taken to the website. I admit, I was skeptical at first so I didn’t sign up right away. I was waiting on another e-mail from my friend because I emailed her back, asking if the site was really legit. I got an e-mail from her e-mail address a few days later stating that it was legit and that it was the best decision of her life so that word was as good as gold for me (I had also re-read the website but am ashamed to admit that I still didn’t see anything wrong with it).

    Long story short. I got scammed almost $127. For those who are thinking to sign up with this company, SAVE YOUR MONEY. You’ll thank yourself later.

I’d love to know what they actually send you. Judging from all the feedback, everyone’s asked for a refund. Is it because they just ‘take the money and run’, or just lead you along until you give up. Would be interesting to know.

Apparently, my bro who is a techie wiz, says if its so blatantly “secure”, then its not. And that there is probably another computer tracking and storing all the sensitive data you input, for someone to misuse it later.

    It appears that Home Wealth Formula is using peoples outlook address books or something similar to send unsolicited emails to people.

    Using my son’s email address to send me an email and link he did not send is actually fraudulent- It makes it look like he sent me the email, when he did not send it and it does that so that I will open it. Creating what appears to be a fictitous newspaper to add “legitimacy” is highly deceptive.

    Dear Readers,

    I don’t know why everyone is upset with this. I’ve actually taken the home wealth formula system and worked with one of their experts and I’ve made a good return on my money. I don’t understand why everyone thinks that you can start a business without having to put any extra time,energy or money into building it. I’ve had multiple businesses, over the years, and they all require “4” commitments to succeed with them.

    1. Time
    2. A willingness to learn how to do whatever processes and methods there are to run the business.
    3. Money…I don’t care who you are or what kind of business you have, it “TAKES MONEY TO MAKE MONEY”. Don’t kid yourself on this one people.
    4. Being a good decision maker/action taker. If facts and figures make sense, move on them and don’t let your emotions get involved.

    If you can’t put these things into a business, DON’T TRY TO START ONE. It’s pretty simple people. Quit wanting something for nothing.

    Another thing, if you look at all these websites that blast another company or say they’re a scam, look closer. That website is telling you that that particular company is a scam but hey, here’s my recommendation on how to make money online. Who do you think owns these other websites or programs? Think about it, let’s trash one company and say they’re a scam so we can sell our product to this client instead. Hmmmm…I wonder who the real scam artists are here.


    Tim says:

    It’s very simple “Mark”. A legitimate company is going to list thier street addy & a telephone number where you can talk to thier ACTUAL employees (not a 3rd party number). The BBB has never heard of them, but they have heard of Prosper Inc.. Home Wealth Formula claims to have a BBB rating of an A but the BBBs’ search doesn’t even have them on record. Further more “Mark”, there is NO Nicole Williams in Mount Ayr Iowa. I know because I live there & I checked. Mount Ayr is a very small town.

    Home Wealth Formula doesn’t even give ALL of the information needed to make a secure decision. Why don’t you give all of us your contact information so that we can question you personally?

    This is a pretty good looking scam at first, but I’ve been scammed before so I’m very skeptical and I ALWAYS do my research first! I found out about this when I was emailed by someone who I wasn’t sure if knew from somewhere. The email address displayed a name and the subject was labeled “yo”. OKAAAAAAY… the content was one sentence that mentioned a woman who works from home in Orange, CA – which is what I do through a local, legitimate surgical instruments company. I thought it might be good reading material relating to my current job so I opened it. THIS IS THE LINK I WAS SENT: http://www2.news7idaily.com/ and it looks like you’re on Channel 7’s ABC news page reading a legitimate article.

    However, if you look closely… you’ll notice, when you click on the channel 7 logo in the top left corner… it redirects you to their advertising “HOME WEALTH FORMULA”. Plus, when you click in the search bar without even imputing anything then press enter it ALSO takes you to the same page. Hmmmm, something’s not right. So naturally, I went to Google and looked up Channel 7 ABC web address and found it: http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/index – when you compare the two, you can tell that the first link is a a big fat FAKE! HELL NO, I’m NOT interested!

    I marked the email as spam and I won’t be bothered by this nonsense again. Readers BEWARE and BE AWARE before you make purchases! Sadly, this information won’t reach anyone that isn’t already skeptical and doing a scam search, but if you found THIS page, I’m sure you’ll be fine!

    Helpful hint #1. Pay no attention about how many packages are “Still Available”. That is just a ploy to pressure you to act fast…It’s all BS–This is true with any program sales letter you come across.

    Helpful hint #2: If you really feel that you HAVE TO get involved with this particular program, here is a way to save about $40!! “X” out of the page. A pop-up window will make you an offer if you press “cancel”…do so, they will offer the program at $49.99. DON’T Buy Yet!! Now, repeat the process and the final offer is only $29.99!!!

You have to have a top 10 website to do that. They all say Affiliate Marketing and Freebie Trading are easy ways to make cash on the Internet is a wives tale. It’s hard and expensive.

    That payment screen is very fishy… as pointed out already, the security logos are fake, and the page is NOT secured/encrypted (no https// address beginning), despite its laughable claim “Secure Payments… the internet’s most secure payment processing website”. Also, your JavaScripts must be enabled, according to it, or it will not allow you to proceed. I’ve NEVER been required to have that enabled, and I do a LOT of on-line payments. Looks like they’re trying to download a dirty payload onto your computer on top of the thievery of $100 for this worthless junk.

    This is a scam the one part in the write up as david said refers to mark as a man and a women, if this is so great then why is there so much unemployment in this country.

    SCAM! I joined up. I believed in what I wanted to do! Make more money and to be financially secure. Who doesn’t? After a couple of phone calls they wanted $6200.00 start up fee which they said I could get back in 90 days. What if that does not happen? Do you have $6200.00 to lay out to find that out!! Hell no! BEWARE! save your money!!!

    Hi everybody I don’t really know about this web site.
    It’s one more that adds up to all the other ones. What i would like to know is if someone had tried this system for real because for 29.95 the risk is not on hight alert anyway. Another thing do not count on FBI or IC3 to do anything about these scams sites they don’t give a damn about all this.

    Update: This is awsome! I had my first coaching phone call and just have to say Im excited! They’re organized and they know what they’re doing. You do have to pay more money but this is real, not a scam.

    I paid a couple thousand for a specialist and so far everything seems legit so I hope I made the right decision. I didnt see this until after I signed up. Like everything else in life, when you want to go to school, you have to pay a huge tuition and in the end, you still might not find a good paying job.. everything invloves risk. Hope I made the right decision.

    I was hoping that this was not a scam. I received an email from a friend about this web site. My husband is an injured veteran who fought in Vietnam and Iraq. The government does not pay us enough to live on and we were looking for something to help us stay off the street. I guess it was not here. I hope you are as good as you say you are at reporting this rip off artist so more people won’t be robbed by them. Thanks. Diane

    Yeah Home Wealth Formula is a scam … but they don’t know who they messed with this time… I will report them all over the internet and the Fraud Aid and the FBI .. I have had to do this quite a few times so I am pretty good at it!
