Beware of "Worldwide Association of Notable Alumni" Scam

The website: "www.wwana.com" and others like it, which claim to belong to an organization that calls itself "Worldwide Association of Notable Alumni" that are advertised by unsolicited emails, is a scam. The websites, which claim that they are dedicated to empowering their clients with effective branding tools to help them achieve success, is another trick used by scammers to collect personal information. Once the scammers have collected their potential victims' information, they will contact them in order to trick them into paying for bogus or fake membership service that cost hundreds of dollars. Therefore, online users should not visit the websites "www.wwana.com," "www.thewana.com" and others like it, which claim they should register to the join the so-called "Worldwide Network of Notable Alumni Network."

Online users who have already made payment to the fraudulent organization created by scammers, should contact their banks or credit card companies and let them know that they have unknowingly used their credit cards on a fraudulent website.

    There are pushy American accented sales people. They misrepresented themselves as being related to the Stanford AlumnI which did make sense based on my history. Hard core sales tactics ranging from super nice to aggressive when super nice doesn't work.

    This is definitely a scam. They get you, and start to create bogus charges. As soon as I was signed in, I became the World Alumnus of the Year, which of course, had a cost. The person that signed e-mails to me was Mathew Stern, who probably doesn´t exist. The phone numbers they post are of an answering service. They don´t have an office. Charges are made by "Professional Networking".

    How can these people be taken out of business and into jail?

    They asked me a whole questionnaire of nice questions about my profession, my skills, and then the girl repeated me "the talk" that you wrote in the article, the definition of who they are, in a very robotic way. Then asked me to pay.

    Just had a call with a very "nice"conversation.
    The man calling offered some sort of lifetime membership for 599 USD or 5 years for 499.
    Then I said I wanted to think about it, he offered 199 for a year and when I said I would think about it he basically hang up....
    Serious scam. They have no website that is functioning.

    "Dear Sir/Madam,

    Unfortunately, WANA scam is also sponsored in Facebook.

    I made the relevant application recently and today I received a call from one lady of their staff asking me official-like questions about my professional experience and after 10 minutes of discussion on my mobile phone, they told me that I am accepted to their network, and I had to choose between a 5-year subscription for something less than 500 dollars or a life-long subscription for I cannot remember the price.

    Until that point, I thought all right, but then I was asked about my mastercard details and the 3-digit safety code of my card; after that I understood that this is probably a fraud, so I told them that I will call them tomorrow. They told me that they would send me an e-mail with a welcome package, and they also asked me for a photo...

    Thanks for having posted the relevant article in your site about this fraud.

    Best regards,
    G. Chr."

    I received a call today from a well spoken lady with the name given as Geraldine Stephens. She asked several questions, showered congratulatory praises and then asked to add me to their online registry either as a lifetime member or for five years, with the cost of $589 and $489 U.S., respectively.

    After resisting on two occasions indicating that I wanted to think about it, she made offers of a 1 year trial for $189 and then $99. I still resisted and she sounded very hasty even bullying to some extent. I asked if she can e-mail me the information, her final words were "we are not an advertising agency."

    Well no professional organization operates like that. Definitely a scam and people should be aware. She called from the number (929)302-3420.

    This is definitely a scam. How do I know - because I worked (unknowingly) briefly for a similar dubious publication. A well-spoken young lady called me once with a well rehearsed, well polished script and was full of effusive praises for me and my achievements. She made it sound like she was calling from the university itself.

    I twigged when she hit me for the payment, a full option and a lesser option.

    Fortunately I was driving at the time. then when I said I would have to think about it she low balled me with a conciliatory membership. If they call hang up and report them to your university like I did.

  • Posted: Apr 30, 2017 at 9:21 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Manama, Bahrain

    I got the call last week and since the representative was seemed so knowledgeable about where I went to college and where I currently work. She was very professional, friendly, complimentary, and supportive.
    Until she asked me to pay for membership.

    I asked for paperwork, the website while so I could check it while still on the phone, and also her information:
    Lashelle Morton
    929-3023420
    ext:X265

    She would be my account director
    homepage: ww assoc, notable alumni
    wana.com
    online registry $99
    lifetime membership $500

    After offering me the lifetime membership first, she became desperate quick by asking for $99 trial, etc.
    This is when I figured it was all a scam. She even said she would send me an email to join later, which I still haven't received.

    Such a terrible scam! I am so disgusted that I gave up 30 minutes of conversation only to find out that it is part of this fraudulent scheme.

    I have initially received an invitation to WANA on Facebook, I have click on LIKE the page as it actually sounded interesting. Soon after I received calls from a New York number (929) 302-3420. Finally today I answered the call and a lady called "Octavia" told me she was calling from WANA, so sounded actually very professional asked me some questions about my previous professional and educational experience which I answered very general, all with the purpose to complete the process and verify if I can qualify to belong to the association.

    After answering all questions she confirmed I was admitted and finally mentioned there was a price for a 5 year membership of $389 or lifetime membership of $489 that she actually expected to pay at the time of the call. This is when started to sound suspicious for me, cause no professional association demands such thing. Then I told her I cant pay right away, as I was at work and we will have to discuss this later. This is when I decided to investigate more about the site, and for good looks like is a well set up scam. Thankfully I did not provide any credit card information, I wont discuss any further.

    I have just held a phone conversation with someone¨named¨ Natasha Williams, an "interviewer". The representative (1929-3023420) accepted my application. She requested a credit card payment of $489 (Lifetime) and $389 (5-year). I refused to give her any credit card information and asked her to send me an email with information to make a decision. Then I researched the organization and found this scam info.

    I received a message from The Wana today. They've asked for information that's common knowledge about me. As yet nothing about cash, but I'll watch out for it.

    Just spoke with a representative and got the same offer: 5-year membership for $389 and lifetime for $489. Luckily I didn't give them any credit card information and simply hung up on them to do my research.

    Received via email:

    "I have just completed a phone conversation with NAWA and went through their "interview". The representative, Laura Wright (844-217-4725) had a very convincing "process" and at the end accepted my application. She then requested the "fee" - $489 (Lifetime), $389 (5-year), $189 (1-year). I refused to give her any credit card information and told her I would review the information she is sending me and get back to her. Then I researched the organization! SCAM!! Be careful out there and do your research."

      The same happened to me today. The telephone number used this time was a New York number: 1 (929) 302-3420. Same scam. Didn't fall for it in the end, luckily.

        I had a call from a guy named Mathew. Same "interview", which he subsequently told me I had "passed", congratulating me! I'm not sure it's a scam, but I am pretty sure that in my case at least it would be a waste of money.
