Is Worldprofit Accredited by the Better Business Bureau?

I recently posted a couple of articles concerning my investigation and review of Worldprofit and Dr. Jeffrey Lant. I received several comments in reply and a few email messages as well. Most of the comments centered on two facts concerning Worldprofit; the first is that the company has been online since 1994 and secondly, that Worldprofit has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau for 10 years. The later point typically has included the phrase “Is Worldprofit really Accredited by the Better Business Bureau.”

I thought it would be helpful to provide a little more detail about Worldprofit’s status with the Better Business Bureau and provide you with a link to the Edmonton BBB so that you can see Worldprofit’s reliability report and the details concerning their rating.

When evaluating Worldprofit or any business opportunity, it is critical that you do not accept reviews at face value and that you seek out documented facts and fewer opinions. I advise this course of action for one simple reason, when it comes to the success of any Internet business the quality of the program as well as the commitment of the buyer (you) are vitally important. There are times when “the business” fails because of the buyer didn’t take appropriate actions, work hard enough, or give the program enough time to produce results. It may have nothing to do with the company.

If you read reviews that focus more on personalities and less on facts, beware… the reviewer likely has an axe to grind. If the review is written by someone who has never actually participated in the business or has not conducted enough research to present a balanced review, beware … the reviewer likely has an axe to grind.

Here are the key portions of the report taken from the Edmonton BBB website. I trust that this information will be helpful in your evaluation of Worldprofit.

    I don’t believe these story at all. Many people who were scammed by Worldprofit didn’t file any complaints. Go to Yahoo.com and do a search on Worldprofit. Automatically, the word scam comes up.

    Jeff – Fist of all thank you for visiting my blog and posting a comment. I for one believe that blogs are a place for a healthy duologue on differing opinions.

    All that I can tell you is that I completed extensive due diligence on Worldprofit and ALL of the third party resources I used are noted on my blog posts with links to the actual resource. In addition, I have been in profit using Worldprofit’s back office systems and automated SEO and Promo tools since my third day as a paying member.

    On another note. Google, Yahoo and Bing all use “Predictive Search” technology and if you begin typing ANY popular “business opportunity” company name (Direct Sales, Network Marketing, Affiliate Marketing) into the search engine you will come up with the phrase “Scam” as a auto predicted search phrase. Try it… pick your favorite business opportunity or for that matter marketer and you may be surprised. It doesn’t mean anything more than the algorithm has predicted what you are looking for … nothing more, nothing less.
