*Author of original report: Bank Card Empire Scam
After about a month wait now I have yet to get this business off the ground because what they didn't tell me was that in order to get this business to work you have to purchase very high priced advertising packages which consist of what they refer to as Call Blasts. A representative with Bankcard Empire called me and tried to persuade me to buy 6,000 call blasts at $2.00 each. Oh yeah I'm sure I am going to shell out $12,000 so this company can bombard people with unsolicited calls that most people hang up on when receiving anyway!
Their next attempt at trying to scam me was trying to get me to shell out $400.00 for a list of new businesses that their so called experts had researched. I tried to explain to the people that were calling me that I was going to try and get this going on my own. I requested some sales materials and guides to use and that I could not afford these high priced advertising programs, well I have never received anything! I communicated with them via email explaining my situation and requested a refund of my original $95.00 investment.
Today I received a call and the guy said you are not getting your money back! I tried my best to persuade him but the arrogant Quality Control Man just ended up hanging up on me! Real Stand Up Guy! Hopefully by my reporting this here I can help some other honest person trying to make some money avoid being scammed like I was.
