How To Cancel Communikate



I get dozens of people show up at this blog after Googling “how to cancel Communikate” or how they can communicate (ha ha! Get it?) with someone at Communikate.

They end up at the post Communikate Makes IBO’s Superior Over Other IBO’s  where a reader put in the toll free number to Communikate 1-866-333-3204. I have not tried to phone that number. For all I know it goes to a sex chat line so phone at your own risk!

Here I want to say that one of the dumbest thing we used to hear from the assholes in our upline when they wanted us to sign up for Communikate and make the Amway cult leaders richer was that they called it a “personal assistant”. Now when I think of personal assistant this is usually someone who tags around with the person paying their salary and helping them keep their life organized. This could be a whole bunch of things - grocery shopping, picking up the kids from school, walking the dog, running errands, meal planning, keeping the house tidy and organized (not necessarily as a housecleaner), running to Starbucks to pick up snacks, or whatever tasks they’ve agreed upon. A woman I worked with over 20 years ago quit and took a job as the personal assistant to a president of a big company. Now some might think that was working in the office in a clerical type of role, but no it was more keeping his homelife organized. One of her first tasks when she was hired was to take the kids on vacation to Hawaii because the old man had promised them a trip there but was too busy to take them.

So those are the things I think of that a personal assistant does.

What does an Amway ambot think a personal assistant does? They think a personal assistant is renting a toll free phone number that takes messages, call forwards a phone call, and does conference calls.

What the fuck? What kind of fucking moron thinks a personal assistant is an automated phone system? A fucking brainwashed Amway ambot! Those brainwashed fools don’t realize they are being scammed and their beloved cult leaders are raking in the dough if they’re foolish enough to sign up for Communikate aka “kate” aka personal assistant.

The majority of people who sign up with Amway usually quit within a year. They now have the problem of cancelling this voice mail system that isn’t worth the $36.95/month or however much the ambots are paying into it these days. Like anything else to do with Amway signing up is easy but trying to quit or get your money back pretty much means promising your first born.

Here’s a former employee with his views on Communikate.

I worked for Webley (company that owns communikate) and yes, it is a scam, the uplines get kickbacks, that's why they push it. They make it super hard to cancel now, you can no longer call to cancel, too many were canceling! They now have chat support, but you cannot cancel by chat, we're supposed to call them and pressure the Amwayers to keep using Communikate. Free tip: Accounts NEVER go to collections, just change your payment method to something incorrect and the account will close itself in a few months. Got questions, ask away?

The amount the uplines receive differs according to the specific deal they have with the respective group, BRITT, WWG, etc. It ranges from $5 to $10 per sign up. "Diamond" level people get special treatment. Another fun tip: Due to Webley's ridiculous billing practice we have gotten many of our clients Debit cards cancelled, it's true! We bill monthly for the service (36.95) but we ALSO bill separately for usage, which usually runs between .25 to .75 cent for most users. These tiny, stupid charges are tagged as "potential fraud" charges by 99% of banks and they "lock" the cards. Lots of people have had important charges for other recurring services bounce back thanks to Webley's stupidity and refusal to make even a tiny good faith effort to better serve their customers. Now you know!

So there you have it. A bit of inside scoop on the deals the Amway cult leaders make with Communikate to get their piece of the pie. Just for those doubting ambots who don’t believe the Amway tool scam.

From the sound of things I would suggest that if you want to cancel Communikate the easiest option might be to call your bank and say you lost your credit card and get a new one issued. The next time Communikate tries to charge the old credit card number, bouncey, bouncey!

And less money in some Diamonds pockets the next month! Oh wouldn’t you like to be in the room when the Diamonds are fighting over how they’ll split up the Communikate profits!

Or listening in on the telephone when the Diamond phones the Platinum to give him shit that someone in his downline just cancelled Communikate!

  1. Hi Anna:
    Reading this blog post of yours reminded me of when I cancelled "Kate" eight years ago. That was when you could still cancel by phone. I think I was just past the deadline where I could get a refund for the month and was told they couldn't refund the payment that had been charged. I really didn't put up too much of an argument, but kept a sharp eye out for future charges for Communikate. There were no further charges.
    The reason I'm telling you this is that while I was an Ambot, there were so many stupid messages left on my Communikate. The messages just piled up. I would listen to some of them to help clear the inbox, but was never really regular at listening to the nuggets of wisdom left on Kate by my upline. It wasn't until I cancelled Kate that I regularly listened to the messages. I first listened to the ones still in the inbox to clear it. I then would check my Kate messages multiple times a day and listen to them, all the while rolling my eyes and mocking my former upline. I think it was worth not getting a refund for that last month, with all the fun I had.
    I guess that is a reason I failed as an Ambot. I wasn't "Core". I didn't listen to my Kate messages with regularity! ;)

    1. Hi David. Thanks for stopping by with your story. And LOL on the "nuggets of wisdom" can't tell you how many times I heard that bullshit. That was the carrot dangling over Ambots heads to make sure they went to the next Scamway meeting or listened to Kate. That fear that they might miss that one nugget of wisdom. And there never was any. Just more bullshit Amspeak.

  2. CommuniKate is one of the prime ways in which Amway rips off its IBOs. Forty bucks a month to get stupid little fortune-cookie messages? It's a huge waste of money.

    I have been told by a higher-up in Amway that when an IBO cancels CommuniKate, it's almost always the first step in his dropping out of the business totally. That's why the company has made it harder and harder to cancel the service. They try desperately to get you to keep CommuniKate.

    Simply change your credit card number. And when your up-line calls to complain, just tell him to fuck off.

    1. Anonymous - Amway's owners were involved in the set up of the company Comunikate or Webley I'm foggy on their involvement. They were either silent partners, investors, or provided financing. So that is why the big push was/is on for Ambots to sign up for this useless program. Anyone with a Smartphone gets all the same type features depending on the plan. It's all about ripping off the Ambots.

Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
