BEWARE when/if you contact this company regarding their very lucrative home-based business opportunity.
Here's my story (the first on ripoff report; however, there are others on-line you just have to search). I was flying if from a business trip and saw an ad in the USA Today touting a home-based business involving prescription discount cards. (They don't advertise on USA Today anymore, probably because of the scam involved and a reputable paper didn't want to associate itself with this company). I called the number (no answer) and left a message. About 5 minutes later someone named Gary called me back and said he was returning my call. I told Gary I wanted to learn more about this very lucrative business opp. Gary went on to explain the nature of the opp and how I could earn commissions (lots of commissions) by distributing free prescription discount cards. So far so good. What's the catch I asked myself. I asked Gary how the program worked. Gary explained that I could buy 100,000 (minimum) cards for $3,000 (i.e. 3 cents per card investment) and they (Benefit Alliance) would then hire "Sub-reps" to help distribute the cards for me. In other words they would do all the work. Sounded fishy but I kept asking more questions. Gary then said they would also send me a list of clinics, hospitals, and other places that were "dying" to have these cards placed in their facilities because there were a lot of patients needing medications but didn't have health insurance. Heck Gary even brought up the fact that ObamaCare was working and people needed an alternative to ObamaCare and that the Rx Advantage Plus was that alternative.
I still wasn't buying in so Gary concocted (i.e. led me to believe) up some imaginary distributors I could call to interview myself and let them tell me how successful they were. Well, this was the smoking gun. I called the two individuals (not knowing if they were sitting next to Gary or not or if they were Gary's family/friends working inn concert to scam people. Guess what both indivduals I called gave the program rave reviews and explained to me their great success. After speaking to both of these individuals Gary called me back a few minutes later (that's why I strongly believe these individuals were sitting next to Gary since how would Gary know that I had just finished talking to these two guys a few minutes earlier, umm?)
Well anyway, I told Gary that I was interested. The next day a Juliexxxx called me requesting my credit card # for the $3000 payment and stated she would be my mentor through the whole process. I gave her my credit card # and didn't hear from Julie or Gary for the next two weeks and I waited, and I waited, and I waited. Finally, out of nowhere five boxes full of cards (around 25,000 cards) arrived at my house with no instructions or the listing of these desparate clinics and hospitals where I could take them.
FOUR MONTHS LATER.
Juliexxxx texted me (she didn't call by the way) requesting another $3,000 for an additional 100,000 cards. WHAT! I emailed her back asking her about the remaining 75,000 cards. She emailed me back and stated that they had all been distributed by these phantom "Sub-reps" they had hired to distribute my cards. I asked Juliexxx if I could have a list of the places where these 75,000 cards had been placed so that I could verify that they actually existed and I was told that it was confidential that I couldn't know where they were and that I couldn't know who my "co-workers" (i.e. phantom sub-reps) were. I asked Juliexxx for any results from these 75,000 cards being distibuted. I wanted to know how successful my effortless work had been. Juliexxx went on and told me that I would be receiving a commission report a month later showing all the commissions I earned.
3 months later.
I'm still waiting for my commission report and both Gary and Julie some how fell off the face of the earth or they're ignoring my numerous emails.
So bottom line is be smart and stay away from Benefit Alliance, Rx Plus Advantage, or Benefit Alternative (Same company different names). If you do decide to jump into this hell hole be sure to verify, verify, and verify. Ask for evidence. Be sure to make the two/three people Gary puts in touch with give you copies of their commission reports. JUST VERIFY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO BE SUCKERED INTO FORKING OVER $3,000.
