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.
