Advanced vending is just an awfull company from head to toe. They are all liars and thieves. They promise you that they have all these locations ready and waiting for you in your area, with anywhere from 80 to 200 employees at these locations. These locations are being provided by an outside location guy who I spoke with promising me these locations. Once I paid for and received these machines the locations that were locked up for me all went away. The locator I spoke with, Steve Forman, said that he has lost his locator for my area and no longer has these accounts on board with him. After contacting Advanced Vending about this they advised me to use another locationg company. They hooked me up with another thief named Matt Dillion who took all my money and did maybe one quarter of the work. Adavnced Vending once again wanted me to use another locator at more of an expense to me as well. Enough is enough already. I asked for a refund and of course that was not an option. I have since filed with the BBB and the Arkansas attorney generals office. Advanced Vending no longer returns my calls and has responded to the BBB's request with nothing but lies. I have also learned through the BBB that another case involving the same company was filed a week after mine. I have spoken with this other person numerous times and compared stories. He tells me the same chain of events that has happened to me, has also happened to him. The same people, told him the same thing, and once his machines were paid for and delivered, the same locator, Steve Foreman, lost his locator for his area in Virginia. This happened about a month after it happened to me. Obviously Advanced Vending, and the locator Steve Foreman, are louring people in with their guarantees, and promises of income, and not delivering a stitch. The few locations that this other shady locator found for me were all in Black beauty salons, in the worst towns possible. Far from the 80 to 200 employee buildings that I was lead to believe I was going to get. Dont waist any time getting loured into a vending machine business. You will sleep alot better.

In response to Advanced Vendings response

AUTHOR: Sparky - (U.S.A.)

In response to Advanced Vendings response. I have not refused any locations at all. Actaully it was quite the opposite, I took some locations in the worst areas that I would never step foot into just to get the machines out of my garage.

No locating money has ever been refunded to me so I dont know where they are coming up with that one at all. The several attempts at finding locations for me always included more money and having no one to place and set up these machines like what was promised to me. If Mr. Cunningham ever returned my calls, and I have called plenty, maybe he could understand the extent of the situation and the financial burden this has placed on my family and I.

A week after I was told that Mr. Foremans locations were no longer available a friend of mine inquired to Advanced Vending and was given the same information, and to contact Mr. Foreman. He was told at that time that there were 37 locations locked up and ready to go in his area, just like I was told, which was only 10 miles away from my initial area. After hearing this I tried to contact Mr. Foreman in order to hopefully get some of these locations for me but was never contacted back. You draw your own conclusions.

#2 UPDATE Employee

Advanced Vending's Position.

AUTHOR: Joe Cunningham - (U.S.A.)

Firstly, although Sparky does not wish to give either his name, or the name of the other party in Virginia, we know their identities as they are currently the only two complaints we have on record! As to "Sparky's" grievance:
1. Several attempts to provide locations for his machines have been made.
2. Sparky has refused every location that was provided to him.
3. After Sparky's refusal of locations, and several attempts to provide locations for his machines, his money for the location fees was refunded to him.
4. Advanced Vending has done everything, and more, required of us.

Further, both Advanced Vending Inc and Mr.Steve Foreman, resent the implication that the unhappy circumstances that caused these problems were a contrivance. They were not. Other areas and other customers were also affected by what can best be described as a business betrayal.
Mr. Foreman has been severely hurt financially by this, and, in consequence, can no longer operate his business.
