Watch Out ... the Truth about TreasureBug!
MORE LIKE TAKING YOUR CASH
I was told that Dan and Nate were offering TREASUREBUG as a business opportunity.
Just go to the TREASUREBUG web site and see the kinds of prizes you can win by hiding and hunting for treasure. WHAT THEY DO NOT TELL YOU IS YOU CAN WIN THESE PRIZES WORTH 100,000 GOLD BUG points - well at 230 gold bugs per prize you will need to find 434 prizes to claim these! WE WERE ALLOWED TWO PRIZES PER COUNTY PER MONTH - THATS 36 YEARS TO WIN THAT PRIZE!
Oh guess what? Their web site IS DOWN it now says: Due to recent regulatory changes, the TREASUREBUG model must be restructured. Until such changes are made the site will be inactive. Please check back at a later date. Regulation has nothing to do with the changes taking place!
Well the facts are we paid TREASUREBUG nearly $50 a month and won prizes totaling as much as $2.30. And WE COULD NOT BELIVE THAT TREASUREBUG TOLD US the best part was that it EVENTUALLY BECAME more like 230 airline miles credits only redeemable in "TREASUREBUG's catalog." Then after 2 months of collecting these insignificant TREASUREBUG amounts to approximately $30 worth of prize value when we tried to cash it it we were told what we won but have still not received the "prize" from TREASUREBUG.
You want the truth. These guys at TREASUREBUG have no idea of what they are doing. They are doing it with your money and then they with sad eyes say - "Oh TREASUREBUG is a start up company and there will be some bumps just stick with us." Then after taking your money and no more than a total of 7 months they turn out the lights and keep your money! Start up is a lie TREASUREBUG was in developmentfor nearly 2 years and in 7 months after launch the entire business model changes. I am not the only one there are at least 60 - 70 people who were told to "kick in" and win and we are out our investment.
The key is we were told to pay an extra $100 and join the Founder's Club and earn a percentage of every enrollment as a hard working founder of the opportunity. We paid. TREASUREBUG CHANGED THE BUSNIESS PLAN we no longer get a piece. NO REFUNDS!
Look to the right
YEAH... IF YOU ARE ASKING SO WERE WE . JUST WHAT ARE GOLD BUGS AND WHY DID THEY SUDEDENLY START SHOWING UP WHEN WE WERE TOLD WE WOULD BE EARINGING AMAZON GIFT CARD CREDITS TO PICK THINGS WE COULD BUY IF WE DID NOT WANT EXCITING PRIZES LIKE A SWISS TECH TOOL?
Again something that was different than what was promised. A slight of hand trick. And while you were at it we were finally told after several attempt to get a straight answer a GoldBug is equal to $0.01 so that valuable prize of 230 GoldBugs was worth $2.30!
I paid $300 to join and then
You do the math TREASUREBUG promised we could win bicycles, iPads and the real big lie was a vacation for two to the Caribbean (WHICH NO ONE HAS WON IN 3 MONTHS) BUT WHAT DID WE ACTUALLY WIN..... WELL I NEVER WON ANYTHING WITH A VALUE OF MORE THAN $20.
Then we were told if we hid the bugs we could bring more people to the TREASUREBUG opportunity! They gave us 6 bugs to hide. After 60 days of asking when we would get our next shipment we were told we would get (due to a complex formula) 2 a month to hide but could PAY to buy more to hide for them! Hmmmm put more in to bring them more money!
YES, I AM AN IDIOT. GIVE TREASUREBUG $50 AND GET $2.30 YOU WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ME INVEST IN YOUR COMPANY!
The real TREASUREBUG lie was that as we complained and explained that you cannot bring people to this adventure by giving CRAP as prizes their answer was things would improve if we brought in more people. SERIOUSLY? They told us it was all about the adventure and fun of the hunt! It was appplying our entertainment dollar for fun! Sorry fols I woul drather pay $50 a month and play a round of golf and enjoy myself! At least I get something of value for my money!
They even had the audacity to tell us we could make more money if we would just bring in more people we could easily cover our costs with bringing friends.
THIS HAS BEEN POSTED TO WARN YOU.
THEY NOW TELL US THERE IS A NEW BUSINESS MODEL! VIRTUAL HUNTS AND LOTS OF OTHER FUN GEOCACHING OPPORTUNITIES.
DON'T BE FOOLED!
RUN...RUN...RUN WHAT THEY WILL TELL YOU TODAY WILL CHANGE TOMORROW.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
TREASUREBUG WILL TELL YOU ONE THING AND THEN DO SOMETHING ELSE.
Here are the fabulous prizes I won in 5 months of hunting and hiding!
IF YOU ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT $0.01 PER GOLD BUG THE ABOVE LIST ACTUAL PRIZES WON TOTAL OF $151.50 AND STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE LAST $31.05 SO IT IS ACTUALLY $120.45.
$550 IN $120 OUT - YEAH I AM A FOOL . DON'T YOU BE A FOOL DO NOT ASSOCIATE WITH THESE GUYS OR TREASUREBUG. THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE DOING.
SADLY MANY OF THE PEOPLE WHO SAW THE POTENITAL OF THE TREASUREBUG OPPORTUNITY THROUGH THE 7 MONTH PROCESS ACTUALLY SPENT TIME TRYING TO SUGGEST WAYS TO IMPROVE THE TREASUREBUG PROCESS AND MAKE THE TREASUREBUG OPPORTUNITY VIABLE. WHAT WE KNOW NOW IS WE WERE BEING PATRONIZED BY TREASUREBUG AS WE SUBSIDIZED LACK OF DIRECTION.
I CANNOT GET BACK THE TWO HOURS A WEEK IN LONG WINDED SELF-SERVING DISORGANIZED TREASUREBUG SO-CALLED TRAINING AND OPPORTUNITY CONFERENCE CALLS CONDUCTED BY THE SO-CALLED TREASUREBUG LEADERSHIP. I CANNOT GET BACK ANY OF THE TIME I PUT INTO MAKING SUGGESTIONS OR EVEN TALKING TO MY FIRENDS AND POTENITALLY AFFECTING MY OWN CREDIBILITY WITH SOME WHO I CONVINCED TO BECOME INVOLVED IN TREASUREBUG.
ALL I CAN DO IS WARN YOU IN NO MATTER WHAT FORM TREASUREBUG TAKES TO STAY AWAY. FIND ANOTHER WAY TO INVEST YOUR TIME AND ENERGY. USE YOUR HARD EARNED DISPOSABLE INCOME ON SOMETHING YOU WOULD ENJOY AND NOT BE DUPED INTO SOMETHING THAT IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS TO BE.
