You think you have been around the block a while, you could smell a scam a mile away. Well that is what I thought! I had my meeting with MY VP and my head was so big when I left I could barely get out the door.

They tell you about the very very exclusive cliental they have ($130,000+ more min., etc). And how they are going to have to review my profile to see if I am a good candidate -- even though I made over double that.

Every single "story" that all of you have posted I was fed, too. Thw whole bring your girlfriend, we would like to talk to her, thing was a little suspicious. But I went along and so did she. They asked her 2 questions and spent the next 2 hours with the heavy sales pitch.

It sounds like I am the master idiot on this forum, my contract was for $17,000! I put $1,000 down on my credit card -- and was promissed I would get it back if I request it before the next "Stratagy" meeting. Well that night my girlfriend did some research on the net and found your site and threw a flag on the play! After reading all your reports and reading several newspaper articles about several lawsuits in OK and CA, I decided no way!

I tried today to call MY VP and cancel the contract. He returned my call and left a message on my machine stating not a problem, but he would like to talk to me. I am sure I am going to get the whole, re-sell pitch, but the only thing thing that would make me go with BHA is the words, "FREE"!

One thing you have to admit, they give a hell of a sales pitch!

Thanks again to everyone (and my girlfriend) who has reported them, you just saved me $17K!

I will update my report on whether they return my money. If they give me crap, I will just put the charge in dispute with VISA.

At least I got my money back

AUTHOR: - ()

Hi There,

I just wanted to update you all on my situation. BHA did return my $1000 deposit (10 days after the request) -- MY VP, tried to sway me back, but I told him I already had an offer just to get him off my back. I wanted to tell him why I really canceled, but I really did not care do deal with his excuses.

In light of this impending bad economy I hope the tables will turn some day and they are out on the street and someone takes advantage of their vulnerabilities so they can see how they are messing with people's lives.
