I responded to a PBR invitation posted on a message board to an association for which I am a dues-paying member. The invitation promoted a NO COST event where a successful and well acclaimed professional in our industry would be speaking about wealth building and how those in our industry can capitalize on an untapped market in 2010 to create loads of extra income this year and for years to come. He said the invitation went out to thousands in our industry but only the first 100 to RSVP would have the opportunity to attend. The event would offer opportunity for NETWORKING 30 minutes prior with SNACKS being served.
To be honest, I was expected to be pitched a course or seminar relating to our industry. My bad for not inquiring further to make sure I would have any interest but you know how that goes with those trained to dumb things down and not make the invitation the presentation. With the right product and the right ethics, (yes, I'm well-versed in old school napkin presentations) I wouldn't have any problems with network marketing.
I signed up. Quickly searched for and found the cancellation policy on the agreement I signed and also took a blank agreement home with me. Thank goodness I did. I found out I had to do my research on the company quickly because if I wanted to cancel they needed notice within 10 days. On the eighth day, that company received my express mailed notice of cancellation and request for full refund without penalty quoting the clause in the agreement I had signed.
Long story short, I googled, I read the complaints on various forums, found the Ripoff Report, read claims here and made a no-brainer decision. If you google a company and the first hit that comes up is SCAM, well, probably not a very good thing.
There's enough already written about their compensation plan that I don't feel I have to regurgitate what you'll readily see and hopefully understand. The service appears to have a bad reputation, you won't make money until you qualify and those below won't make any money until they qualify and on and on. When you run the numbers you'll see the company is the one making the money. If I knew only 3% of those I was bringing into a business were going to enjoy some success and 97% would be spending money they would potentially regret spending, it would be all I needed to know to say thanks, but no thanks.
BTW, I asked my wannabe sponsor if anyone in his upline had their company website and I never got a response. I didn't push the issue.
Do your research. You only have 10 days by their agreement to get your money back without penalty. Yes, they did refund me promptly, with a few days of receiving my notice, not even a week. Good luck.
