Feds raided this jerk and his companies!!! Consumers: Stay away from this!

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

1st I want to say I noted the date you submitted this report.  I'm very happy that you contacted the BBB.  I know someone who was an ultimate victim of Don Lapre and his Amazing Products...via the World's Greatest Vitamin.  This idea was surely original.  Something that worked for some but failed and scammed many. 

 

Here's what I can tell you.  I was asked to help initiate communications and come up with questions for someone who was really interested in this program.  Informercial was called.  Doubted for some time.  Finally, calls were initiated to start the process.  Signed up on a Saturday.  Told computers were down so would need to call back on Tuesday (that Monday was a Holiday).  Called Tuesday only to find all numbers were disconnected or just rang and rang without an contact reciprocated.  Called the Company that hosts the sites for you...says they never heard of the company and didn't know what was being talked about.  Finally decided to do a Google Search and found some other numbers...WGV LLC was the contact info in Van Nuys California.  So they were called.  Talked to a Receptionist named Lisa who said she had just started there but they had had a special meeting the day before about this company.  Knew nothing except to "say they were un-associated".  Talk about back pedalling.  This girl- I felt so bad for her.  Trying to do her job but felt so guilty that she called me back when she was off-shift.  Swore that they entered into a contract to buy out the company, started "shifting operations" away from the old owners and after "misdealings were uncovered and terms of their contract were breached, they backed out of the deal."  says that the Big Bosses instructed everyone to Swear they never had anything to do with these people, but I found images online that show this company cut the "pay-out checks" to many unsuspecting people. She didn't want to be part of a cover up. Finally decided after 2 days of no responses to call a number on one of the random papers sent through the mail.  And you would never believe what I found out! 

They wanted their money back so I jumped on board to help again.

Called the BBB.  According the BBB, they had so many compaints on this company that they forwarded compaints to the Feds.  Postmaster General was involved. I was told to call the Arizona State Attorney's office.  Secretary told us to call Attorney General's office.  Being shifted back from one office to another, finally I got so angry I called the Feds myself.  I called the US Attorney's LIASON office located in AZ only to find out that a huge FED STING OPERATION had uncovered mail fraud, scams, tax evasion, check fraud, amongst so many other things going on.  We were told that we needed to call a specific person at the State Attorney's office so we did.  FINALLY!  Someone who was willing to talk. They were Raided.  Apparently we had been given different addresses they were not aware existed as affiliated with them...so I got forwarded to their team leader who was still on one of the search sites.  I had to give them all the addresses I found in various letters, in emails shared in google searches, etc.  Oh My Goodness!  They told me it was like receiving the Fort Knox of information in their hot littles hands.  They were going to go over to those addresses.  NO ONE AT THE COMPANIES BOTHERED TO CALL.  Turns out, they were all raided on Monday, the Holiday.  Found people destroying records before the work-shifts even started.  Piles of papers and records practically in their faces.  Plain sight led to other things found.  WOO h*o!  Gold Mine!  Just had the motive for filing immediate charge-back reversals with all credit cards and checks already made payable to them.  It took over 6 months to get it all back from the banks and credit cards.  All but $35 was paid back.  So victim loss total was $35 and unsurmountable time spent on trying to contact the necessary people.  Glad we contacted the Feds.  Postmaster General's office apparently headed the sting.  Busted these creeps doing things so dirty, that it wouldn't be worth even wanted to do the laundry with.  Don't do anything with anyone claiming to be Don Lapre.

Found out this guy Kevin that once worked with him...that Debt Cures person...well he got away from this creep because he felt it was dirty-dealings.  Decided he wanted to be honest and not apart of something that screwed thousands of people out of things they've worked hard for.  That's why he went on to write about Debt Cures and the Natural Cures books.   

 

This was the Summer of 2007.  This went so big- bigger than I think they thought it would.  Don Lapre screwed up.  By involving Television and the Mail Service with his telemarketing, he screwed himself.  Feds posed as new applicant employees and caught them red-handed.  People who were simply doing their job per policy got off.  They should.  But the Head-honchos given the instruction should have responsibility.

 

This other person previously signed up for that money making scheme in the 90's.  Didn't know they were the same person.  That was a joke too.  DON'T EVER DO ANYTHING WITH THESE SCAMMERS!  Consumers beware of companies like this.  To this person who posted this Report...Call the Arizona State Attorney's office, the Postmaster General, etc. to find out what came of it all if you still haven't got your money back.  Go get this scammer!  most importantly...go get your money!  Money isn't the only thing these people victimized.  Your effort, time and troubles ARE WORTH SOMETHING.  This creep victimizes the gullible and trusting.Filing a consumer complaint isn't your only avenue of justice. 

 

Wish you well but figured you should know this just in case you still have interests in this matter.  Good luck to anyone else who deals with these people.
