This company is using deceptive practices in every way possible. They are scamming Entrepreneurs , fund raising groups including schools, church's, & Youth Groups and customers who support the fundraisers.
First they convince people to buy a franchise ( Territory Owner ) in different cites and they claim to have 60,000 national offers included with an online coupon book. They convince you to sell advertising to businesses and then sell the offer through the fund raising groups. They have not closed a deal with the other company for all those national offers.
They have already been sued and lost from someone who bought in to this program. Many other people who also bought in to this program are looking to file a class action suit against this company as well. They do not feel they were told the truth when they bought in to this company. If anyone of the territory owners are selling this online book through the fund raising groups then they have deceived those groups in to believing they are entitled to all the offers and again they do not have a signed agreement with the company that offers those national offers. This means that anyone who bought a subscription through a group or direct from the company has been mislead and lied to. They have an ad placed on Entrepreneur.com claiming to have 10 employee's in the office. Call the number and see if you get an answer. Google the address and look at Google maps and see if it's an office.
The website does not function the way it is supposed to for the territory owners.They have also made false claims that fund raising groups have used them and have made as much as $250,000. Then they convinced territory owners it was true and had them add this information to they're own fund raising pages. This is false information to convince groups to use them.
Many people have bought in to this and then walked away when they realized the truth and did not want to deceive the public.
Territory owners were told that they had many more customers already then what they really have to convince them that this program was growing leaps and bounds. In my opinion, anyone every contacted by Dine and Discounts SHOULD RUN TO THE NEAREST EXIT.
