In good conscience, I decided after a thorough review of the information posted on the Never Cold Call Again Website, that the material showcased would be of benefit to me since I am in sales. I will say that I read everything as carefully as humanly possible and this is what the ad states before you ‘hit’ the start button it appears as follows: (see below)
"By pressing the order button above, I agree to FJR Advisors Inc.'s terms under this 30-day free trial offer and agree that I am responsible for payment of $97 if I do not return this program within 30 days."
And here’s another section similar:
Yes! Please rush your breakthrough Never Cold Call Again system direct to my door, the complete package including the book, CDs, and over $300 in bonus downloads, right now! I will pay nothing today except the shipping, and will have a full 30 days to decide if I want to keep it, or I can simply send it back and never even be billed - no questions asked!
United States - $9.25
Canada UPS - $19.00
Int'l Air - $19.00
I as the consumer say, that, yes, you’ve just read the amount to be $97 which is to include the book and sales training DVD’s and an upfront $9.25 mailing fee. Well, the materials had arrived to my address on record but not entirely what was promised. Something was off. I reviewed the copy that the owner professed would be included and the workbook was not there which is supposed to be a component to guide you if you follow this system. Sadly, when I reviewed my credit card bill the mailing fees were $9.25 and $6.00. Simple, math denotes a total that it is no longer $9.25. I expected to see the $97 billing but certainly not (on the same date) another charge of $47 ─ which was not something I had authorized nor knew of. Being upset, I called my credit card company and the associate offered to conference call the number appearing on the credit card statement and it turns out that we learned the number was a ‘messaging’ service and the woman said that she would relay a message to have someone call me the next day. Well, it dragged on day after day for three days and no one called me back. Even when I had called the number during normal business hours, I kept getting live persons and though human, sounded virtually lifeless and one had given me a number of 210.338.8630.
So, today, (8/13/13) I left a voicemail and shortly afterwards I received a text from a person who said they weren’t sure who I was trying to get a hold of but that I had the wrong number and that the fact that I kept calling their Google voice number would not resolve my issue because I had the wrong number. This person continued writing that I was not the only one who had this issue. They said that they receive calls like this all the time… it then ensued that this person said “I am not the business owner…” I am an engineer and the scam artist gave you the wrong contact info. As several further text’s continued this person also stated in exact words: “The office address is a fake as well. It is a real office address but it is available for rent. No one is currently in it and it is managed by Boxer properties and the phone number is 214 651 7368”. Then this person referred me to look at the Rip off reports; this is how I learned of this site. I am now in the process of dealing with my credit card company and must follow the proper return procedures and when I mail it back I can have the post office do a tracking method. But honestly, I am not feeling so reassured about the return resulting in a positive credit as I read that one consumer who got scammed like me followed protocol and it has now been six months. The sad thing is that there could be additional billings on a monthly basis because this ‘Scammer’ can use the original credit card authorization for additional charges. Moreover, I was told that even if I cancel my credit card number and get reassigned a new one, the charges can still go through. It is only after such, I would refer back to the dispute area AND TRY to get a refund but the fraud coordinator said that there is no guarantee. I am not a stupid person and rarely did I ever order online but when I did, I always dealt with reputable and upstanding businesses. This one is not and it sickens me that another victim is out there as the next in line for this revolving scam. I think all the testimonials are fake too and this guy really a scam artist and needs to be shut down and face several counts of criminal charges.
