Exactly! I tried to contact them. Only way to do so is by email. I've sent 4 email requesting to cancel and only got one very pre canned reply. If you want your money back just call your bank and charge back.

Lol I got Carlie and Carleigh.

Email came from here: 

knezevich73138@gmail.com

Such a scam. Yeah you get traffic, but then what? It's probably just a bot network.

Hi All

I got an e-mail from abington84017@gmail.com and guess what, the e-mail does not work when I replied.

SCAM, stay away.

If something is too good to be true, it most probably always is.

Also could not find any info elsewhere about them and that always is a red flag for me to investigate further.

I've had sales from FB ads before and This is the answer they give you when the bots do not convert to sales: 

Thanks for reaching out! Just finished checking your campaign. Our job is to deliver the traffic, your site's job or your job more exactly is to convert the visitors into buyers. While I can suggest an improvement or two, I'm not a CRO (Conversion rate optimization expert) so would not be able to give extended advice in that direction.

Please note that we're doing our best to target your niche, as per the requirements you provided during checkout. In 99.9% of the cases, you need to test your website over an extended period of time like weeks or even months before reaching to a conclusion.

Depending on how well is the website optimized for conversions, sales can be expected but not guaranteed since a lot of factors that contribute to conversions are not under our control. Some factors worth taking into consideration are:

- a slowly loading website. No one will wait a few seconds for the website to load
- poor copywriting that does not motivate the visitor to take action
- annoying popups that show up too early
- poor design style
- not enough call to action elements
etc etc

We're always doing our best to drive the traffic but ultimately it's your website that must do the sale. Most often than not, the reason why the visitors don't navigate further or take any kind of action and leave the website as soon as possible is a saturated landing page and one or more of the above reasons I just mentioned.

I have some customers that had xx.xxx number of visitors that went to their landing pages and not even one single interaction and I have some that get an interaction/sale per 50 visitors (more or less) which is very, very good. When there are no interactions, it means you need to do certain tests, split tests, A/B tests and so on in order to improve the conversion rate optimization as that plays a huge role in how the visitors interact with the landing page.

There are a lot of factors that come into play and you never know until you test each one of them individually as they range from page load time (That's right, it's a huge difference for the website to load in 3 seconds compared to 1 second) to call to action placements, copy quality, UI and UX and many other factors that at first might seem not that important but in fact they're vital.

If the landing page is not properly optimized and even worse than that, is saturated, no one will do anything on the website and usually 99% of the visitors will leave the website.

That's why you can see big websites like Facebook making different tweaks, changing the color of the buttons, the placement of the buttons, the color of the background etc for the same exact reason, to find the best conversions point that's aligned with the visitor's best interests so that they are able to retain them as much as possible on Facebook and make the visitors continue to use their services.

You can do a test with super high converting traffic from Facebook and you'll get the same results. Simply test and you'll see that I was right. I'm telling all this from experience as I have a lot of customers that I manage Facebook Ads campaigns for and on most cases, the first few thousand dollars spent are not yielding significant results unless they have a unique and/or out of the ordinary product that nobody else promoted before.

Kindly remember that I handle only the traffic part, I help you get the traffic, but in the end, your website must convince visitors to stay or interact with your website. This doesn't mean at all that the traffic is bad. It's always easy to blame it on others but remember that change always comes from within. Making no changes will result in visitors leaving your website as soon as possible and leaving you wondering what you're doing wrong and what the website is not converting as you'd want.

Got an email from them now. I wrote back and told them the reason i would never use them is because they write from a gmail account. They also have a buttload of numbers in the email address. How stupid are these guys? Why don't they at least try to look legit and use their own url in their emails? I mean, they HAVE the domain....if i can do it, why can't they? They're so daft. I hope they read this.

Anyway, the email they gave me in their email is attached. They must read these comments as they fixed the Carley issue and the name is spelt the same in their email throughout. 

These guys are idiots. They're scum and they need to be taken down. They're a WP site....I wonder if we all sign a petition, can we have them taken down?

They're a WP site....I wonder if we all sign a petition, can we have them taken down?

Petitions in general are inneffecitve wastes of time without a massive amount of people involved, even with a handful of signatures who would you even send it to? and why would they care?

If you have an actual legal grievance get a lawyer.

In other news anyone who does 1 second of research for that company will probably end up in this thread or similar.

Of course suspect businesses thrive on merchants that don't vet vendors /shrug.

True they are scam.

if you google influx nova reviews and move to trustpilot you’ll find only positive reviews BUT influx nova is another company legit...in other words they are trying to steal customers and scam them by confusing visitors. 

I’m 110% sure that these type of info got leaked either from Shopify or their Shopify experts and probably this is one of their Shopify stores with 100K orders per month claiming gurus that know how to make money. 

I took the decision to report this website - group to the official website of influxnova.co.uk because eventually not only it’s bad reputation for them but to save people from spending their money on scams. 

join the cause!

This is indeed a scam. Had the same email, but with the names Hailey, Hayley and Haylee. 

Avoid this and Shopify look into it.

Definitely spam. The emails usernames are completely random. I own/manage over 30 stores and every single one of them got an email from this company using a different random gmail account.
