I am order #0668460

I was up One night and saw Dave Espino's Auctions for Income Infomercial and thought that it was a great idea seeing as how usage on the internet is rising ever second that investing my time in this would be benificial to me.

I was wrong. After i ordered the packet containing 5 booklets of detailed information and just like clockwork, after i read the last page of the last book, I recieved a call from PMI Direct by one of their representatives stating that, "...with the success team you will have a better chance of becoming on your way to building and running your own on-line home based business".

But all the service was for was to lure individuals who wanted to cut through the mistakes of starting this home-based business on their own and better understand the process by professionals who are already making money through this program for a fee.

My coach that "assisted me" was Jason Dial and we were to meet over the phone every Monday in the afternoon to discuss tasks that i were complete before our next meeting.

I wish i never did but for this help the cost was going to be $1500.00. I should have figured something was up when i told them i only had $1300.00 and they took it. But before i gave them my credit card # I asked them what is the percentage of those that this service has worked for and they said, "...90% if they do everthing that we tell them." Well, i did do everthing to the tee and if i were living the life that i thought Auctions For Income was going to give me i wouldn't be making this report.

I would like my $1300.00 refunded to me as well as the $39.95 it took me to get Dave Espino's Auctions For Income Box Packet. I'll kindly return it to him in it's original packaging as it was delivered to me if they would like.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Research PMI Direct !

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

Hi Romeo,
Thanks for filing your report.

When I got that back door phone call from "Auctions for Income Success Team", I didn't know at the time that it was NOT a call from Auctions for Income. After I invested and things started to fall apart I had to call the numbers given to me and ask: Who are you, what is your business name and how are you connected to AFI ???? to find that it was The Summit Group that called and qualified us for their special offer. PMI coach had no authority to make refund, I had to go back to the sales group which was a nightmare, I went directly to IDI because their name was on my credit card statement & IDI did make a complete refund. Some reports seem to indicate that PMI made the sale and at times they also refunded.

Your challenge is to determine who actually made the sale, what name is on your credit card statement? In my situation The Summit Group made the sale, IDI name was on credit card statement. At time of sale they told me they were the "Auctions for Income Success Team", when I called to find out who they were, they told me "The Summit Group". After researching, I found: no yellow page or bbb report for "The Summit Group" but their address & phone number search showed up as Summit Consulting = unsatisfactory rating. Update your report with all the business names, addresses, web addresses and phone numbers they provided to you, as well as product titles they sold you. This helps others when writing & reading reports. Many of the older reports show PMI or PMI coaching where yours reads PMI Direct. Where is PMI Direct located? what is their business address & phone number?

Good luck to you!
