Bank Card Empire knows how to pick its employees. Many of their employees have a marketing background and know just how to draw a person in, take advantage and then leave a person hanging. Almost literally! They prey on unsuspecting, disabled, low-income people, who are desperate to find a way to make some money from home. They are cold and ruthless, and warm and cunning at the same time. These people should be ashamed of themselves, but instead they are laughing all the way to the bank!
They use high pressure tactics to get you to commit, and give you no time to think about your decision. If you question or doubt anything, they have an answer and a way to talk you out of your halting feeling. They lead you to believe that you are getting such a good "one-time" deal, and even go down on their prices to really make you think you're getting treated right. In actuality they are putting the "screws" to you, and they're so nice about it you don't even know it until it's already done.
Immediately upon giving them the information requested, I felt a sinking feeling that I had been "had". I went online, googled the company, read the ripoff reports and just felt like an idiot. I had the most severe panic attack of my adult life at that moment.
I have explained my situation to several people in the company, in an attempt to receive compassion from someone, but no one really cared. They supposedly documented what I told them concerning the situation, but their real concern is to keep your money any way they can.
They have gotten $2,149.99 of my money. In the beginning, I was told that I could get out at ANY time I wanted with a full refund. LIES! You're locked in for at least 12 months, with all kinds of requirements to fulfill, meaning more money, more money. Only at the end of the 12 month period, fulfillment of all requirements, and not making your $149.99 back in this period of time can a refund of only the $149.99 be had. The remaining $2,000 is supposedly used for "advertising", although there is no tangible evidence to prove this.
Even though I have fully explained the situation and requested my money back, I was told that they were, "not in business to refund money, they were in business to make money". Obviously they're making money, at the expense of people who didn't know any better than to believe in the proverbial "too good to be true" scenario.
Once again, ladies and gentleman, just like your mama told you, "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is!"
