NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

Auctions For Income, Professional Marketing International ripoff, pressure salesmen, taking advantage of people in desperate financial situations Lindon Utah

I am doing now, early in the morning, what I should have done in the beginning: namely researching the product BEFORE I buy it! I can't sleep because of the stupid decision I allowed PMI to talk me into.

I am 67, retired, and existing on SS and a very small pension. To make ends meet, I recently took a patt-time cashiers job in a department store. I too was looking for a way to add income and "Auctions for Income" looked like a good deal. I like the internet and have sold some items on eBay, it sounded good.

"Auctons" actually delivered their merchandise; I mention them because that led directly to PMI calling me.
PMI called to see if I "qualified for their super seller program" where, if successful, I could be featured in their "Auctions for Income" promotional ads on TV. Believe it or not, I am not TOTALLY STUPID, but the salesman was VERY PERSUASIVE.

He asked me financial questions that allowed him to zero in on just how much credit card debt I could incurr. Then I was handed off to a second person for the "closing". (I remember thinking that it was just like the old days of buying a car where they two-teamed you with the salesman going back and forth to "consult with his boss" and get a better deal for YOU")

You CAN get all the information PMI offers FOR FREE from eBay! Wish I had known that sooner. THIS IS DEFINATELY A SCAM!. The entire object is to find out what you can pay and then get you to commit. In my case it is $4975. What did you agree to pay?????

Dave's favorite web-site of Products (Premier Products) do not have much variety of products and they definately DO NOT SELL ON EBAY!!!

I can't sleep, I am in terrible debt on a fixed income, I need out!!!!! I'm ashamed to let my children know how very stupid their Mother was as they already worry about me. Has anyone successfully got out from under this committment????

Don't Be Ashamed, Beverly!!!

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

Dear Beverly, my heart soooo goes out to you!!! While I have not been involved in this venture, I EASILY COULD HAVE BEEN, if not for this wonderful site!



Please do not be ashamed to tell your children what happened! We all make mistakes, and wow, when it comes to wanting to be financially independent, even easier to make mistakes. I am so sorry this happened to you, as I am for all the people who post that have been unfairly taken advantage of, and I do not feel anyone should be ashamed for wanting a better way of life, and not knowing in advance they are being deceived.



Obviously, I do not know your children, but I sure hope that if such a situation befell my parents or inlaws, that if they needed my help either because of the financial issues, or in maybe being able to help them get their money back, I WOULD WANT THEM TO TELL ME.



Being that you have ebay experience, yeah, I would be inclined myself to think that I would have an idea of what is possible on the internet. But if nothing else, at least you now know to check out any venture really thoroughly before contacting the business. And STILL you may be deceived, new ones are popping up all the time, but at least you would feel more confident before risking your hard-earned money again.



I am truly so sorry this happened to you. I expect to have a future similarly situated, most likely, of living off only what I can earn in a "normal" lifetime that doesn't include large salaries or "golden parachute" positions. The desire to increase a limited income is so understandable, and I sure hope your children will be of comfort and understanding, Beverly.



Wishing you all the best.
