We received a call back from a representative named Brian Mclane, who was in Florida and Leads Online, Inc is also a registered business in Florida as well. Having purchased leads for the last 10 years, everything sounded fine and an insertion order was placed on 5/8/09 for 100 Live Transfer calls and the amount of $4,000.00. The invoice was issued from a company called Self Made Man.whose registered agent in Florida was the same attorney...J. Matthew Marquardt. We researched Leads Online and saw on their website that they were affiliated with Aggressive Marketing and Management and Mr. McLane's email address was firstname.lastname@example.org all appeared to check out.
Typical of a Lead Company they required payment up front from the client so a Cashier's Check (Bank of America # 7064780) was Fedex'd (track # 8673-3939-9703) on 5/12/09.Mr. Mclane confirmed confirmation on 5/13/09 and the Cashier's check was confirmed cashed that same day.
The leads were never delivered. Mr. Mclane would not refund the money The invoice for SELFMADEMAN, INC was date 5/8/09 and the invoice # is 50809a. Mr. McLane did send a check for $700.00 but that was it.bringing the refund due to $3.300.00.
Mr. Mclane claims he paid a vendor with our money and the vendor took off. Even after repeated questioning Mr. Mclane would not give the name of the vendor.....who had run off with his and his other clients money...very fishy.
And the websites continue to operate and sales presentations go on....every time you ask for the money, Mr. Mclane cries the blues and says he will do what he can(take people's money) and if pressed simply says get an attorney and a judgement.....it appears that $4,000 is the perfect amount of money.....not quite enough to leave small claims court, and cost prohibitve for hiring an attorney as the laws of diminishing returns take effect......an almost perfect con.BUYER BEWARE
