Zoom Benefits advertised with Referral Cars.com in this manner: Referral Cars sends you a decal (for the base cost of $6.95) for you to place on the rear window of your car. There are various upgrades offered, i.e. $2.00 more for a "memorable" number, and so forth. The decal would be an advertisement for Zoom Benefits, an on-line company offering reduced rates on anything from phone bills to travel. Members of Zoom Benefits pay a monthly fee. In theory, when someone sees the decal on your car and texts the code (individual to you) to the number provided and then joins Zoom Benefits, you get a commission on that monthly fee. One needs to register their "code" with Referral Cars upon receipt of the decal so they will know which person gets the commission. I received my decal...approximately 2 feet long x 1 foot wide. The phone number was (701)Kar-Wrap and above that was my code. I registered my code, waited 24 hours, as instructed, and then tested the code by texting my code to the Kar-Wrap number. I tried this a few times and absolutely nothing happened. I waited a day for a response to my "inquiry", but no response. I saw that this happened to others and supposedly the system was "down" and the problem was resolved in late November 2017. It is now December 2017 and the same thing is happening. I suppose we will be told the system went down yet again. So if we have this decal on our cars and people actually want to sign up for Zoom Benefits...how can they do that when they text and they get no response. I believe this whole thing is just a scam to get the money sent in to purchase the decal.

Chana J is still at it!

Well nothing has changed since this post started over a year ago. Still a scam using Zoom Benefits. She had to check with her manager to see if she could get me included with th campaign that had just filled up. Blah, blah, blah! Didn’t go through with it and glad I didn’t! Q

Awful

I signed up 6 months ago with them. I really wish I would have read the reviews. First off I was told that if you didn’t get anyone signed up you would receive a &100 amazon gift card. I have made no sales and contacted the company because they probably hope you would forget. They said that nowhere did it state you would receive an amazon gift card and they would like me to send them a screenshot where it said that. Of course I cannot get a screen shot because it was during the sign up process. They sent me their terms and conditions saying the only thing they will give me is a $100 reasturant.com gift card. I proceeded to tell them how frustrated I was and asked for a refund. Of course no refund after 30 days. I had signed up to get the extra stuff which was another 20 dollars. Sucky part is one of my family members signed up too and was told the same thing about the amazon gift card. And the stickers do not just peel off. You have to go through this process of heating up your car to get it off. Took me an hour to scrape it off.

my account got hacked

My account got nipped for 2,495.00. I don't know why but thankful my credit union blocked the withdrawal.

I then got scammed from a loan online company that was out of Kansas. That one was successful in cleaning my account out.

All around the same time I signed up and paid out 30.00 for all the add ons.

I have not received my upgraded banner.

REFERRALCARS RESPONSE

We are so sorry that you had a poor experience with out text code responses not working. That is 100% our fault and we are quite embarrassed that the core feature of this campaign didn't work for you. To provide some background and what we've done since the problem...We were made aware of the issue by the software company we used to handle all of the sms responses and and while there wasn't much we could have done at the time to fix the issue since it was upstream with our software provider we take full responsibility for the number of text codes not working during November and even into December. At the time we posted a large red banner on the login screen for ALL affected drivers stating the exact issue and what we were doing to resolve the issue.

Regardless of the issue, we are so sorry this happened and are offering full refunds for anyone that had an issue or even is they were worried about the issue happening to them. We want to be fully transparent and work with our drivers for their success. Please get in touch with us so we can provide a full refund and make this right with you.

We have since stopped working with that software provider and have invested a huge chunk of our resources into custom building our own software system. This system has been operational since January and has been a much better experience overall now that we control the software 100%.

Scam all the way

Their address says on google maps it's a grocery market. And no suite number. Definitely a scam. Or the supermarket is also a scam. Address they use is 3450 N Triumph Blvd, Lehi, UT 84043, which google maps shows is Harmon's market. Here's the supermarket website: harmonsgrocery.com

Looks like a scam to me, they don't even have a legit address. Reporting them to FCC for false advertising.

Ummmm, no thanks

I, too, was approached by Chana to promote ZoomBenefits. After reading all these reviews, I have decided to pass. Not one of these reviews were positive. That says something about ReferralCars and ZoomBenefits. It sounds like there is only 1 rep working for ReferralCars. Chana told me that I was accepted by the highest paying company for the company. She claimed that I was "accepted" by the campaign. Seems to me that there is no other "campaign". It concerns me that a SS was required, a CC # was required, etc. That smells of a scam to me. I have a cat with serious cardiac issues and cannot afford to be scammed. So on that note, I will not pursue this "opportunity". I will be unsubscribing from Chana and her emails. I will also be spamming her emails.

Hmmm..

Slightly impressed with how articulate you sound over the internet.

Real customer service agents provide a CUSTOMER SERVICE PHONE NUMBER when replying to any complaint.. not a “message us on Facebook” let me guess, is Chana in charge of responding to these bad reviews too? Wow.. multitasking at its finest, she deserves a virtual pat on her robotic back and fake email sign off picture.

If it wasn’t for the good quality video advertisements, I wouldn’t have been interested. I pressed the submit info button and whew thank God it just didn’t go through, for a reason! Usually read reviews before signing up for stuff and regret almost making an exception.

They ask what contact method works best for you and I selected, phone call.

They immediately contacted me every way except by phone call.

Dude has some guts to show his face and advertise, then again no offense most Asians look alike so they’ll probably never find him or anyone in charge of this.

So many red flags guys, pay attention and follow your gut.

Too bad this isn’t true, they would have made good money from people like us, more than this scam money income.

Here’s a copy of the email I received,

If you receive this or anything similar, please dodge the bullet.

“Great news!

I just heard back from my boss and you've been accepted to that campaign! You're going to be very happy with this campaign. :)

Now...you still need to go through the campaign setup so after reading everything below click this link and follow the steps.

^^^ That link is important! ^^^

The first page you'll see after clicking that link is a page that says, "1 Campaign Available" so just confirm your name and email there and follow the steps. You'll be advertising for a really awesome company called ZoomBenefits. They are a corporate benefits program that is now open to the general public so anyone can basically signup with them and get all the same perks that employee's of large companies.

Like I said in my last email, ZoomBenefits is the highest paying campaign that we have (across all locations) and you'll be really really happy with it, I promise.

Also, I've been told that if you wait to apply you may lose your spot so don't wait! I don't have another campaign available so it will likely be a pretty long wait before the next one comes around.

Cheers!

Chan

TEXT received: “Hey it's Chana, your ReferralCars account manager. Good news! I got you accepted to that campaign and sent all the details to your email. Congrats!”

I signed up about 3 months ago. Paid a little over $25 for the decal and to have a memorable number for people to text. I got the decal as promised. Have had it on my windshield and I do lots of driving in heavy traffic areas throughout NYC and the surrounding suburbs. No one has signed up for this since I began. They did something to their website, where I am no longer able to even access the login page to check my login account. I never got the $100 gift card they promised if you didn't make any money. Its been 90 days and I'm done with them. Glad I'm only out of $25 and not more money.

no contact except email and as soon as I asked for the $100 gift card suddenly no response at all. reporting to the BBB and really sad that I signed up. Aren't they going to try and charge us for the yearly "fee" eventually? I remember that somehow.

Company info scam

HI I recently saw an add for this company and looked into it before buying and I just finished up talking to a customer support person about the company at this number ‭(888) 789-8424‬. She said that if the codes on the decale add is registered properly then it should work. She also said that zoom benefits is the only company they have a deal with. I was also told that the text chat chine or someone is a default program to help users but that admins go over the chats and help if needed. And I was told that if your code isn’t working then you should call them. This is what I got from the call I just made and it sounded like the women I was talking to was Indian idk if that’s important but the numbe I called is ‭(888) 789-8424‬ and it only took like 30 seconds to speak to someone.

I saw an ad on Facebook. It said make money just by driving around with their decal on the back of my car. They said just pay the shipping on the decal to get started. The shipping was listed as $6.95. When I started to pay it they offered other options like a second decal for my husbands truck for an additional $5.00, a tracking number for the decals during shipment for an additional $2.00 and an upgrade to your commission payout amount for even more money.

After you finally get through the checkout process they start emailing you to set up your page to track your commissions. Then another email asking you to sign up for the benefits company that will be on your decal at a substantial discount. They tell you that not only will you get that discount but you’ll be able to use your text code on your decal to get a commission off of your own purchase. That’s where it starts to get really sketchy.

You get your decal in no time.

I think it was two days to get mine. It says to register your text code on the site that tracks your commissions. So I did and it says it will take up to 24hrs to be active. So I waited 24hrs and tried to use my text code so I could get the double discount. But my text code doesn’t work. So I thought maybe it’s because it’s coming from my phone number. So I tried another phone and it didn’t work for that one either. I think they are just scamming the drivers by charging them for all of these things and then never paying out the commissions.

Upgrade

I recently signed up. I've been seeing a disclaimer that something was wrong with her site. I went to hello@referralcars.com and these reviews came up instead of their site period that raise the red flag. I should have researched before signing up, but I was excited like everybody else. I then called the number for customer service that was reflected on my bank statement, first of all they sounded like they were outsourced to India, second of all they kept saying my account was not active they couldn't find any information, but every time I gave them my information to kept repeating it back in correctly so I'm assuming they were putting the information in the computer on every single time, that to me is another red flag if you cannot understand or frankly sound like you don't care then you shouldn't be doing anything in customer service or this is truly a scam because the people that were doing the customer service sounded lazy and unfriendly. The lady said it was going to be 7 to 10 days for my refund. I'll come back on here and let you know if I got the refund, because my confidence in this company is 0% at this point. And now I'm worried in addition, even though they said they cancelled my account, I had all my personal information on their "dashboard". I really hope my information is not misused or this is going to go even further than this blog.

Agree

I literally just signed up after seeing it pop up in my Facebook feed. After that, I started reading reviews( for future reference I will do that before signing up) and didn’t see any positive ones either. I don’t plan on going any further with it....I don’t even like the idea of having to pay shipping for a decal. Any legitimate company looking to pay people to advertise, isn’t going to charge for the advertisement to be sent...they should cover the shipping themselves? Plus it looks like they don’t actually pay you just to put the ad on and drive like normal.....any pay is dependent on people responding to the ad........so it looks like if no one responds, you don’t make any money. I’m out....I’m not going to cover my back window without a guarantee of some compensation.

Hello,

We've seen your review about being charged $100 for your purchase of $6.95 for shipping the decal to your home. To put it simply, we DO NOT AND NEVER WILL charge anyone any amount other than what is stated on the checkout form, let alone something for $100 or even close to it. Please get a hold of us at hello@referralcars.com so that we can resolve this issue. We'd love to have you show us your bank statement so that we can prove that we do not and have never done this. It goes against our core belief as a company and is totally dishonest. Please reach out so we can resolve.

After being asked to pay for the decal, I did a lot of Internet research and I actually can't find a single person that has made any money doing referrals this way. Actually quite the opposite. I found a lot of people that said that they paid for the decal and have never received compensation of any kind. So at this point I think I'm going to pass and go with my gut on this and I appreciate your time. Have a good day. I received no further communication from the company once I sent that text message back to them regarding why I wouldn’t be signing up. Buyer beware if you spend your money it’s your business but keep in mind that I haven’t found a single person that has made any money doing this.

My red flag was they didnt take paypal to sign up yet one the the questions they ask is if you do have a paypal account, but to pay the shipping fees they take credit cards but paypal is not an option...hmmm so if its so important to have a paypal account why dont you accept paypal as a shipping payment, well let me tell you why, they cant hit paypal with recurring payments, but credit cards they can hit it as much as they want.

I applied with Referralcars.com to place a decal on the back window of my car and to get paid by commission based off this “passive income”. The only charge upfront was to pay $6.95 for shipping of the decal. While others had posted in a blog they received a decal in the mail, no money was ever earned. After trying to contact the initial person, Chana, no reply has ever been received other than to hurry up and apply before the offer ends. For an additional $15, you could also select to receive 80% commission rather than the original 60%.

Referralcars rc) makes some big claims, and follows through despicably poorly. They advertise making hundreds of dollars of passive income monthly, with 3-5 new subscribers per month. Then they claim they'll give you a $100 gift card if you don't receive subscribers in the first 90 days. I did not receive my decal for 51 days, and had to contact them after 25 days to request a resend. The decal began peeling immediately after application. 40 days later, no subscribers. Zero. Then i received a request for a payment to "renew my annual account," announced 280 days before a year had been completed, but "pro-rated" for being "much sooner than originally scheduled." at my complaint, rc issued the $100 gift card and terminated my account. Turns out, the "gift card" is $100 credit to restaurant.com, where you have to spend, for example, $75 of your own money to be discounted $25 of the "gift card" amount. Nothing can be taken at face value, and on the whole, rc has been disappointing and deplorable. I am humiliated that i was duped by this in the first place.

So, I started sign up today because I was born with a disease that keeps me from ever keeping a job longer than a year and I thought I could make money this way. I finally got to the setup screen where you pay for your decal. As soon as I saw those "upgrades" I felt uneasy. So I came here and I'm so glad I did, this has scam written all over it. And my "account manager" Chan, literally emailed me 5 times over a period of a few hours. So sketchy. This is painfully obvious and I'm so happy I looked here first.

Awesome review!

I too was born with that disease of not being able to keep a job longer than a length of time. Mine hovers around 2 years. I have a very low tolerance for jobs I dont like AND a very short temperament for when things at jobs go poorly. Which is why this seemed like a great opportunity. Drive my car like normal, make a little money passively without having to do much. No boss or corporate BS to deal with. If it WERE real, I probably would have gotten a lot of attention in my flashy beautiful (older) BMW.

So I decided to give this a try thinking at most I would lose $7. I didn't expect much but was just hoping it wasn't completely bogus. Received emails from Chana J. (like EVERYONE else on here) and was about to pull the trigger on this scam and I'm REALLY glad I didn't. Thanks to everyone for the reviews PARTICULARLY the guy above this review who said he ACTUALLY RECEIVED the $100 GIFT CARD. Too bad it was for restaurants.com and not something legit like Amazon or MC. At worst I would have gotten a gift card for my troubles... but NOPE.

I'm a hard pass on this.

1099

They ask for your SSN if you make more than $600. They are required by law to send a 1099 MISC form if you make over $600.00

I'm just getting started as well, everything seems legit. I will test my code when I get it.

They (Chana J.) tried to swindle me. When it seems too good to be true (I'm so lucky I was accepted into the ONLY Campaign available in my area)... Take a moment to do some research. These jokers are located on TRIUMP Blvd because they are triumphing over our hard earned money ????

Much more than a scam for sticker

Here is the scam start to finish. Chana J is the registered owner of both refferalcars and Zoombenefits. She gets you to pay 6.95 for shipping and handling on the sticker. The cost to her is around .68 cents. She then tried to get you to upgrade with the promise of higher commission or moving you to the top of the list for the next base pay campaign. The problem here is there are no commission s and there are no other campaigns. Now that she has you signed up she trys to get you to sign up your friends and family and yourself in zoombenefits which she also owns. If you do get them signed up you will get a small commission like 2 dollars. So she has gotten thousands of people to pay her to work for her. And to make matters worse zoombenefits is nothing more than a compilation of discounts that anyone can get for free on the web. So that is the scam. Now the final note is the $100 gift card. The gift card is to restaurants.com and basically it's like if you spend $100 you get $25 dollars off so even the gift card is a scam.

ReferralCars

We are a relatively new company and we are growing very quickly due to the response from drivers and media alike. On this page there are a couple drivers who have reviewed us poorly due to the fact that their text codes haven't been working. We offer full refunds to all those drivers and have been very transparent about the issue that affected a small number of our drivers. We even offer refunds to any driver who is/was even worried about the issue or really any other issue. We only want to work with drivers that are excited about our program and trust that we have their best interest in mind.

That being said, if you have any questions about your account, please reach out to your account manager if you're already a driver or if you're exploring signing up, just shoot us an email or message us on our Facebook page and we'd be happy to help you through our program. Thanks!

If Referral Cars isn’t scam, Zoom Benefits screams it

I did this and took the decals of different after a month of no revenue. I got a decal for both myself and my husband as we live in seattle. Going to the Zoom benefits website there is NOTHING that gives info on the discounts you get. When I asked ReferralCars about it they said I’d have to sign up first to see the deals. Uh, I’m not giving a company $30 to see what discounts may work for me. If ReferralCars can’t even tell me what I’m trying to sell on the back of my personal vehicles? No thank you.

still unsure....

Why is it that i am required to give my SSN in order to create my page? I don't feel it is necessary and gives off the vibe that this is indeed a scam to those who have inquired and are interested. Then when I have tried to call and receive more information about the company and expectations, etc. The number given is disconnected. These are just a few of the red flags involved, and now I'm stuck in limbo because without answers, I will NOT be giving my SSN, but my CC was already charged the fee. IF you truly care about your company, its drivers, and your reputation, please be diligent in your responses and give people answers. AND if anyone else on this thread that has complained and referralcars has actually reached out to rectify the situation, please respond as well so that I may know they're not just full of it.

The material may say 90 days but in the videos the guy says 1 month, or don't you think it's a coincidence that everybody keeps responding that they didn't get the gift card after 1 MONTH. If you are a legitimate company you need to get your act together and find some new customer service Representatives because they're rude and they suck!!!

After research I made my decision

So I just got off the phone with referral cars 20 mins ago, after contacting me about Zoom benefits. They explained to me basically the same thing everyone is caring. But I felt uneasy continuing with the process. The person talking to me felt everything was script. I told her that I would have to call back after I get confirmation from a friend since we share the same car as an excuse to call me back 2 hours later. During that time I made my research and good thing I did.

Probably a scam

I had signed up for this and then immediately regretted it. I had paid for the shipping and $2 decal upgrade. I immediately called the phone number I found on their webpage. I talked to a real person after being on hold for quite some time and politely asked for a refund/cancellation. The person on the phone seemed annoyed but was overall friendly. Within 20 minutes I saw a refund pending on my credit card. So I’m hoping that I don’t see any additional charges.

This is a scam dont fall for their bs. I saw the ad on facebook for this website where and advertising company will pay you for however many people sign up through the decal on the rear window of your car, calling it “passive income.” definitely doing my research next time before jumping in and signing up especially after reading all the negative reviews here made me realize i should have done that in that first place. They made me pay $25 for the advertising sticker Decal) and cover the cost of shipping. You get your decal in the mail and absolutely nobody signs up through your text code. Not to mention the company is making bank by charging you for these decals to promise you money you will never make and to damage the rear window on your car. I’m writing this update in april of 2018 and this company is a joke. Don’t do it

Referral cars is working for me!

I signed up for referral cars about 2 weeks ago. I received my decal last Friday, April 27th. I put it on my truck April 28th and it was activated by the 29th. Its not much, but I have made $16.38 in the past week. I have also posted facebook jobs and ads on job sites to promote the decal, AND to promote referral cars. I am making commission. I signed up because a friend of mine signed up 4 months ago and just surpassed the $800 mark in one month. April she made $801.76. Lifetime earnings in these 4 months total $1724. She has been paid. You can choose to be paid via paypal or a check. I signed up to receive checks. As long as you promote, NOT just the decal, but post your referral links, you will make money! It's not a scam. I was skeptical at first. Well see how this goes!

To those who said you were charged $100 instead of $6.95, they are simply trolls! You only pay $6.95 if you want. I did pay more, but I upgraded my decal and my commissions. This was my choice, and i was only charged for what i agreed too. Look at the checkout page before you submit your credit card, it will give you the EXACT TOTAL!!

As I said, most of these bad reviews, I feel are very hyped up, and not completely true.

Mr. Cahoon was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. He expressed that in recent months his company had some technical difficulties which led to confusion for his clients, "we were using a company a third-party software company to manage the text inquiries and the automatic responses to be able to track and report sales back to our drivers. And this company had several outages that affected some and in one case all of our drivers at one point for a short amount of time, but it was a nightmare, to be honest working with them. They were dealing with a lot of issues themselves they were a smaller company based out of California and it really hurt us and that is what the reviews have shown." In order to remedy this, they have been working closely with the third party and their developers to fix the issue.

He proceeded to explain their resolution to this issue, "what we did in response is we built a custom in-house solution and essentially solved all of those issues that drivers had been experiencing and we ported over all of those keywords that had been registered on the old software program from the 3rd party software provider to our new in-house solution and since then we have had 0 issues. We feel like we have solved the problem and we have reached out to the drivers who were not happy and offered full refunds and you know anything else that we could do to make the situation better. "Additionally, ReferralCars has an A rating with the Better Business Bureau.

So, we are looking at improving our social media presence primarily with Facebook so that our drivers can see all the new campaigns that are being launched. They can, kind of communicate with one another and get their questions answered by other drivers, which is probably a better experience in some cases than calling us because it is one of their peers and it is something that they can kind of get organically. I think that our continued push towards a stronger social media presence is one of our biggest differences."

It also allows our drivers an opportunity to get a hold of us if they are not active on social media or forget our email address. I think it is another avenue for people to get a hold of us."

Still Waiting on My Refund

The one time that I don't research before committing is the one time that I am screwed over. First started off with accidentally clicking the "boost your commissions" button and not realizing that it charged my card an extra $15. At first I didn't sweat it, just emailed them explaining the situation. They sent me a receipt saying it's been refunded and to wait 3-5 business days. It's been 5 business days and still no refund. In between this time I keep getting the same damn automated email from Chana saying that I haven't finished signing up for the campaign and that I need to hurry before I lose my spot. Funny, because I had already received the email saying my decal was shipped. I emailed them THREE times, each time explaining to them that I had already signed up. On the last time, I threatened to cancel my account and (shocker) finally got a response from someone saying that it was a glitch in the system. Well, today, I got yet ANOTHER email from "Chana". That was the final straw. How can I trust someone to send me my commissions if they can't even get their system in order? Called their customer service number, was literally told to hang up and go to their site to speak with a rep. Went to the site, typed in the chat box, and then was told I wouldn't get a response for another couple of hours. Fuck that. Called their number again, got a rep immediately (imagine that), and told them exactly why I was cancelling. The moment I started explaining why, the rep got short with me and got me off the phone as quickly as she could.

I will be keeping everyone updated on whether or not I actually got my refund of the $15.

Charging yearly renewal fee less than 90 days into it!

I started with referralcars less than 90 days ago. I just received an email “This is an important update regarding your annual renewal fee for ReferralCars. Your annual renewal fee is scheduled to be billed on 03/31/2018. We know that this is much sooner than originally scheduled so we are pro-rating the total charge. Instead of billing you $35 we will be processing the pro-rated amount of $8.76. This pro-rated amount will allow us to keep the tracking phone number on your decal active for the next 12 months.

If you would like to cancel this transaction from processing please let us know by emailing us (hello@referralcars.com) or by calling us at 888.789.8424. There is no early cancellation fee attached to your campaign. We are sorry about this accelerated schedule and are more than happy to help you in any way we can.”

Of course I refused to pay the renewal fee. So, they automatically closed my account. I asked for it to be reopened but they said it would charge me and they would reimburse me. I don’t trust that to happen. I want the $100 gift card promised and they said they would make an exception for me even though the 90 days is after my new renewal date... “Your gift card eligibility date (90 days after you activated your account) is actually past your renewal date. This is very rare! I am so sorry for the timing. Normally, we wouldn't be able to send a gift card if you cancel your account, but I am going to make an exception for you. Can you send me a picture of the decal on your vehicle for verification? Once I get that picture, I can send you the gift card :)” I sent a picture from the inside since that’s all I had on my phone at the time and that wasn’t acceptable to them. I have to retake from the outside but I doubt I’ll ever see the $100. I still have a few bucks unpaid to me from Craigslist ads I placed too that I doubt I’ll ever receive.

Referralcars is a us based, and provides the highest quality and service of any other vehicle advertising program. We are the logical program to make money by driving your car with an advertisement. We are dedicated to matching the highest number of drivers of any other company and paying our drivers more than any other program.

After you apply, you will be assigned an account manager who will work with you to place you with an available campaign. You can sit back, relax and wait But not too long) for us to match you with the highest paying campaign available.

Referralcars unlike their competitors never outsources the work. We assign each driver applicant to an account manager who will answer questions, work on your behalf and ultimately get you placed with a campaign. Our competitors match less than 1% of their applicants and we match 95%. This is because of our dedication to details like assigning each driver an account manager but also because of the types of campaigns we offer. We are not limited to the types of campaigns like other companies.
