"4X Made Easy" Comes To Alberta
Alberta newspapers have been hit this weekend with almost full page ads promoting a "free educational workshop" by an Addison, Texas outfit.
The company, Global Tec Solutions, is sponsoring workshops Monday and Tuesday (June 12 and 13th 2006 respectively) in Edmonton (4 workshops), and one in Calgary (Wednesday June 14th, 2006). The company must know Rainbow Investigations is in Calgary, so they are being considerably more cautious here!
The company will provide a workshop where they will try to sell attendees a software program known as "4X Made Easy". Forex is an acronym for the foreign exchange market, and the idea is that the software will be able to assist people to be able to make money by trading one country's currency against another.
Apparently, the software costs a little less than $4,000 (at least that is what U.S. consumers have paid). As well, the company collects another $100 a month. Exactly what someone recieves for this monthly charge is not clear.
Many consumers have complained to The Rip Off Report, a U.S. based consumer sound board located at www.ripoffreport.com, that the software does not work, and that there is little if any customer support. Furthermore, many consumers have tried to get refunds on the products, only to be told that refunds are only available if the purchaser is hospitalized. To access these reports, go to www.ripoffreort.com, and search for "4X Made Easy".
A respected business reviewer gives a good evaluation of the "4X Made Easy" concept, located at this link - click here.
While Rainbow Investigations is not planning on attending the workshop, this looks like the old story...if it looks too good to be true, it probably is!
