They promise that each terminal will deliver a net commission of$5.00 per day ($150.00 per month). This is Ameripos's definition of a "below average terminal".

My first commission check was for $8.93.

If anyone is considering investing in this company, please call me. I will provide you with the company's sales literature and pro-forma AND my actual results. You may then draw your own conclusions. Contact me through the rebuttal key.

AmeriPOS is not what it's cracked up to be

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

To the guy who wants to Invest in AmeriPOS, Beware! Save your money!

I can't stress it enough. I made the plunge and I wish that I never was affiliated with such an organization.

The ONLY thing that they were genuinely concerned about was getting my money. Their literature is WAY OFF just like the complaints say.

I wish that anyone who knows anyone else who is thinking about investing to take a good hard look. These complaints are all too common about this company.

As one prospective site owner told me (when I went there), I would never have anything to do with a Florida investment.

My first commission check took 2 months to receive. It was a big joke...four dollars and some odd cents.

Need Help

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

Can someone please help me or guide me on how I should get my money back from Ameripos?

I bought 5 terminals and was told that there would be no selling involved on my part and that they allready have 20 of the top locations chosen for me and that these locations are waiting for me to go and sign the paper work and install the terminal. But that was a complete LIE. They didnt have these 20 locations allready selected and waiting for me, all their locators do is cold call these locations and set appointments. When I went there I had to do all the selling and convincing my self, and that took ALOT of my time.. I went to 20 locations before i placed 5.

Now that I have placed them, none of them are making any money. I was told that i will recover my cost in about 10 months, but that is a complete LIE also. Most of the money is apparently made through sales of the long distance phone cards, but the radiant cards are not competetive enough and thats why no one buys them. and i'm supposedly in the best market which is the los angeles area.

I spent all my savings on this, plus the time and extra money to do business.

I would be very gratefull if someone can post below and tell me and others that come to this website on how to get their money back.

Can't thank you all enough for supplying these alarming insights into this company.

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

I was just days away from going forth with the deal with ameripos. Can't thank you all enough for supplying these alarming insights into this company. I too went down that road with Arthur and his persuasive inviting sales pitch. Spoke with their reference, Mike Chiello, who was also very convincing. I am very interested in obtaining Paul from Lakeville's literature and further details of "horror stories".

Thank you,

Ameripos follow-up

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

Ameripos states that an average terminal will produce $340 per month. I have had two terminals out for almost three months, another two for 6 weeks, and I have made only $65.00 in commissions.

I had a fifth terminal installed for two months, and they did only $12.00 in sales. I pulled that terminal out of the store.

I purchased 8 terminals and now have only five
located. I needed to recoup my intitial investment in 12 - 18 months max. Obviously it won't happen.

With another company, my $18,980 investment would have produced sixty (60) locations, considerably more than the eight (8) I have with Ameripos.
Would I invest with Ameripos again ??? The answer has to be obvious.

Additional Information

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

To the Washington D.C., prospective investor:

If you go to Google.com and do a search for
Ameripos, you will one or two other sites with
even more complaints about Ameripos.

There are three issues:

1. Their misleading information as to the
performance of an "Average terminal", which
is a net commission of $340 per month.

2. Getting the terminals placed. After almost
three months, I still have two unplaced
terminals.

3. Their initial pricing is too high.
Ameripos's five terminal package is $12,980.
With another company, I can secure forty
locations, for the same money !!
