After filling a complaint against Image Incentives aka Smart Advertising Solutions Tempe,AZ who are now changing their company name to just Image Incentives Responded to AZBBB about my complaint that they claim I signed a form with their company to get a home business(WHICH I NEVER DID) from them was FALSE. They stated in their response to the AZBBB about my complaint now that they actually bought my personal information from Cutting Edge , which I could not find until searching on Ripoff Report and finding out the whole company name is Cutting Edge Media Inc.

On the PABBB their actual whole company name is Cutting Edge Media Inc. / True Wealth Magazine who has a good report because companies won't give out where they got/bought peoples info from and that's when I decided to use the AZBBB to get a response for me. These guys are as bad as scam artists unscrupulously getting peoples information and selling it to telemarketers who cold call people and claim they do not cold call as well as lie about us filling out a form with their company to get info about their company.

Hopefully this will help some people undertsand how Image Incentives got our information and maybe other spam/scam emails/calls we are getiing too.

Image Incentives is 110% LEGIT ! GOOD COMPANY

AUTHOR: DONTRUMP - (USA)

Image Incentives is legit, I don't know where the negative stuff is coming from.  I love my website, I love the customer service and I always get my emails and calls returned the same day. BTW...they have also had the same business name (Image Incentives) at the same location since their beginning and that is hard to find in home based business land."

Hey Brandon learn to spell Japanese and check with the Arizona Attorney Generals Office about your so-called legit company/owner buddy

AUTHOR: JJ - (U.S.A.)

Brandon you might want to learn to spell words correctly before using them and the Arizona Attorney Generals Office has other things to say about your buddy/owner of Image Incentives/Smart Advertising/or whatever their calling themselves nowadays. Good one used to work for them now I'm too far.
This good company that states people signed up for their offer but is actually a LIE because they bought peoples info from a broker list that Cutting Edge Media Inc is selling, is that a good company that uses a LIE when calling people? Especially when people never signed up for any such offer or wanted to be put on a broker list sold by an unscrupulous company like Cutting Edge Media Inc.
They lied about how they get peoples info then what else would they be willing to lie about to get unsuspecting people to buy into their offer?
Just sounds like another telemarketer selling a telemarketing scheme.

CONFLICTING RESPONSES

AUTHOR: JSHEESH - (U.S.A.)

Why does one of your responses say same owner,same location, same company and the next response says new owners, new mgmt., new employees and Image Incentives has no affiliation to SAS business wise? But has the same address also?
SO which is it?

And your company has no complaints against it because the name Image Incentives was just started in August 2008 but was making calls in 2007 using Image Incentives thats why there's no complaints and nobody could find out where to file complaints because that's the name your employee John Strummer uses, but again thought you stated new employees in your response and then say to call John Strummer?
Why do you put the number down 405829 when it should be L14689350?
Why isn't your company registered with the City it operates in?

YEAH PROOF THAT YOUR BUYING PEOPLES INFO INSTEAD OF YOUR CLAIMS WE SIGNED UP WITH YOUR COMPANY

AUTHOR: JSHEESH - (U.S.A.)

Anybody can check this information out for themselves and they will find what is posted here to be the truth unlike what the responses claim.

Why does your salespeople say we signed up for something from your company if you bought peoples information from a companies broker list that we didn't sign up for?

Why is Image Incentives using Smart Advertising Solutions address if you are not affiliated?

If your an up and up company why can't the Arizona Attorney Generals Office find any such company or Arizona BBB have Image Incentives as a company name when we search on their site like you claim?

Why does Arizona Attorney Generals Office have a file on Smart Advertising Solutions for a postcard fraud when asked what kind of company you are and nothing else?

Why does the number 480-588-0703 or 800-878-0936 never show up for Image Incentives , but go straight to websites like 800notes, who's calling me , etc. that have hundreds of people complaining about cold calls from Image Incentives?

NO I would never use a postcard fraud telemarketing company that has to buy peoples information from a broker list that they never signed up for and is on the DNC list as well. My company doesn't depend on buying peoples information from a list that took peoples info unscrupulously and cold calls them without checking if they are on a DNC list, it does just fine with the work proven, word of mouth from customers.

Go back and read your conflicting responses you made about Image Incentives it just proves right who is giving out false information. First it's a program now it's a legit business not affliated with SAS but is using SAS' address. Doesn't cold call people and claims we signed up for something from your company , but actually buys peoples information from a list that we never signed up for but was taken suspiciously from somewhere and now is finding out most people on that list are on the DNC list. Or when searching the phone number that your employees leave at homes,peoples work and cell phones(who again actually never signed up for any information from your company) for people that are now on websites complaining about the numerous calls their getting.

Just posting information that can be found with just entering 480-588-0703 on websearch , searching for Image Incentives business name on AZBBB ,receiving letters/emails from Arizona Attorney Generals Office and City Hall of Tempe,AZ (which should have information on a legitimate buisness operating in their city/state) that anyone wanting to really check this out could find easily , but I guess their the ones giving out false information?

Why would I even consider doing business with a company that replies back to AZBBB as Smart Advertising Solutions and not Image Incentives?
Why can't the city you operate in find any information on your legitimate company?
Why can't we find Image Incentives on AZBBB site?
Has to resort to buying peoples INFO off of a list if it's such a legit and good company , Why would you have to do that?
And yes it's also your fault when you buy peoples info and call them when they are on the DNC list without checking first.

#7 UPDATE Employee

Finally some proof...

AUTHOR: Drummer - (U.S.A.)

Finally some proof that we are who we say we are. I love it when someone who complains actually helps build our credibility even more. Image Inccentives sells a legitimate opportunity to our clients. If using leads from companies that sell information legally bothers you, then obviously getting a home business started might not be the best option for you.

When individuals search both online and off line for a good business opportunity, they are bombarded with sales calls from many different companies. Is this our fault. Of course not. The person companing here could have already had orders through their website, generating a residual income from businesses that want to save money on their promotional products. Instead they waste their time attempting to make futile attempts to dis-credit an honest company.

It is up to the consumer to make the best choice for them after doing their research in order to make sure the company is on the up an up. As in a previous rebuttal, I will repost our report with the Arizona Secretary of State just to clear up any mis information.
