Espresso Italia and it's so called staff are all working together. After joining their team in Arizona, we have experienced no leads since June 28th 2004, they will not return phone calls as promised or not return them at all.

They say they will put additional staff on to get you more locations, that has not happened. They take that person off and just put another in his/her place.
They told us there were no other Espresso Italia dealers in Phoenix.
They also stated that they needed us in place here and up and running because they were making tv commercials for the company and also wanted to use us as a referral and pay us for the contacts. That has not happened.
We have provided them with additional business leads, only not to get a lead from that list.

I have contacted the US Dept of Justice and we are waiting for a reply from them. If need be we are going to take them to court and file a suit to collect for expenses incurred. Both our relocation and investment.
Be very cautious with this company.

They are good at ripping you off. It is a high pressure sales business and a lot of the contacts don't even want to be bothered so they set up the appointment and at times are not even there when you arrive. Confirmation of appointment doesn't even matter in certain aspects.

#1 Author of original report

Get a hold of the FTC and let them know!!!!

AUTHOR: Duane and greg - (U.S.A.)

Since writing our original report, nothing new has happened. We did recieve a letter from Patrick Albright of Espresso Italia, but it was in response to the one we sent to the National Business Opportunity Bureau in Norcross Georgia. Michael has also contacted us and we agree with him. They need to stop lying and deceiving people.

I have been in touch with the FTC (Federal Trade Commission). I have filed a report with the FTC and they are going to look into it. We as a group need to do the same thing. Go to their web site and file a complaint. The web site is (www.ftc.gov), go to the consumer complaint section and fill out the report.

I feel enraged that Espresso Italia feels it is our problem, they said retrain yourself. Training has nothing to do with them ripping us off.
Patrick Albright of Espresso Italia also stated they placed machines in the locations we couldn't. I still have the contact information and I contacted 6 of the 19 locations, they have not placed a machine in those six that I contacted. Patrick all out lied and I can prove it.

I guess we will have to wait and see what the FTC does or finds. But I strongly suggest at least filing a complaint and also contact the National Business Opportunity Bureau in Norcross Georgia.
