Once again I will go back to the old me and not be sweet talked by these door to door sales. As most others reported I had someone come to my door selling magazine subscriptions to aid in their betterment. After letting him know I was aware of the scams with this type of sales and that I do not order from such people he gave me a sob story about the economy and that he was going to use it to open his own business to become self supporting and less reliant on his parents. I too have received the late notice regarding lack of payment. I have decided not to fulfill the sending in of even more money considering that I have not as of yet received the first magazine. The first check I wrote has been cashed and considering that there is no way of getting hold of this company except through a PO box I will take the chance of them reporting me to the credit agency at which time I will dispute it in court. At least that way someone has to show up in person. I do have a copy of his authorization with his picture on it which did not seem to disuade him from carrying out this ruse. I thought if this was a scam he would bak out then. Next time I will ask for a Florida driver license to compare the ID to as well.

Here is how it really works

AUTHOR: exRR15 - (United States of America)

First off, I want to let you know that anyone who complains on this company is entitled to their own opinion.  But the way it works is:  You have the opportunity to pay half first and mail the other half in, of course you are not going to receive your first magazine until you mail in the balance because who gets a product they didn't fully pay for.  The half-half system is so you know you are dealing w/ a company, you pay upfront part, this will naturally go to living expenses; these crews have to pay for gas, food, rent.. Then you mail the other half to the company and then you get your product.. If you choose to pay in full your part that pays for the books gets mailed to the company, and they still have the money to pay for traveling expenses.. if you make your check to the company it is mailed to the office, they then send money to the manager crews accounts.. Your books paid for of course and these young adults can survive..

flord Agency, at least when I traveled with them, we were not a rip off crew. But you want to be so negative and think to yourself: "these people aren't possibly doing a good thing."  Why can you not realize that we were able to learn great work and business ethic, learn how important a positive attitude is and also if you can go to a complete strangers house, sell them something they really don't want, and the customer thanks the agent when leaving...  Imagine how well we are now able to do in our current professions... I am a debt collector now, you hate me; and my profession too.  But my clients who are major medical providers prob hate your for not paying your bills that you legitimately owe to them.. If you cannot even mail your balance off to pay for magazines, how are you with your other debts, please stop focusing on how bad you think these people are and look in the mirror.. 

Lastly, how can you think this is something that could effect your credit, do you even know how FCR works?

As for you saying you are :going back to the old me", the only people who say that are people who have never changed and are afraid of change because they aren't strong enough to do it.   It did better me, and I also got to live an amazing life.. Have you ever stayed in a multi million dollar house in the keys?  I have 3 times, have you ever spent Thanksgiving in Lake Tahoe CA, then Christmas in Palm Springs CA, then New Years in Las Vegas NV ??? I have  !! Thank you for your time

You have to be about half retarded to think that you only have to pay for PART of a product before you get it! Do you get to go to WalMart, and only partially pay for a product, take it home, then pay them the rest later??? NO! you have to pay for something before you get it, moron.
