On the 23 may 2011, i receive an email from a friend, tell me about the online business, where u can stay home and make some extra money.Normally i would just delete such mails. This email was  supposedly sent from a trusted friend that i knew was involved in online business,.I really taught the mail was sent by him.Discovered later to my detriment that this was not so.

I click on the link that was sent ,this brought me to the Homebuilder web site.I was then showed some video about how easy and great it was to build your own site along with many supposed testimonals to the many success story.Bwouy was i sold.

.In order to build my web site i had to purchase an E-book that would cost me us9.92, i taught fine only us 10.00 it would cost.So i proceeded to fill in the necessary information.I gave them them information from my credit card.I was then taken to a site where i was given instruction to begin to create the website,As i progress to follow the instuction ,i was asked to upgrade to Vip status that would cost me us$o0-50:00 i decline.iwas then prompt to upgrade to the PRO status on a trial basis in order for me to proceed to the next stage of the website building.I was told that my creditcard details was necessary but i would be billed.That was a lie ,i was charged  us$19.92.

The alarm went off in my head,as i realized i was Mislead to beleive that the actual cost to build my web with the E-book was just us$9.92.So i decided to contact my friend to ask why he would forward me such a Rip Off link. When he told me he did not send me the emails.Almost everyone one in his contact have received the mails and was calling him about it. I knew then i was in deep trouble.

HomewebsiteBuilder then sent me to an affiliate company named Bidvertiser Advertiser,this site was to help me to get traffic to my supposedly website,and to set up an clickbank a/c where i would start getting revenue. .Suffice it to say i did log on to Bidvertiser on a trial based first pending approval from them that the accepted my Ad.They too had my creditcard information.

The good thing is Bidvertiser actually sent me a confirmation email and also an activation link when my ad was approved, That was my saving grace where bidvertiser was concern .I was able to cancelled the subscription before they actually start billing me.

I didnt received the E-book,nor any confirmation letter,nor activation letter from Homewebsitebuilder so i taught i would only lose the us$30, that they had initicially charged me. I received my credit card statement with us$9.92 from PLIMUS.check there Website found they have 3orders # from me with my card info.,Tried to cancel my subscription,thats not going through,tried to tell tell they have duplicated my bill without success.

Went online to do some investigation,only to discover that my worst Nightmare was true ,Homewebsitebuilders was a scam others have fallen victim too. Last night i could find evidence of my credit info on PLIMUS website along with their address ,the supposedly orders that was done with my card.When i inputted the last 4digits of my card along with my email address.

Since i read your report the Ripoff Report  i  try to go back on PLIMUS website  and key  in the last 4 digit and email address ,only now to be told that no record of any order any longer exist,very strange when they had 3 good thing i had the forsight to write them down last night.

Order#42341959 from Inet cubed ltd billed us$9.92
A/c ID36705774,reference#59209124 billed us$19.97
A/cID36704504  reference #59208892(home Wealth Solution777594 limited Half Price 2981396 cost Us$19.97
I truly feel violated,scared to do legitimate  business online that i must to to moved forward. I feel like homewebsitebuilder and PlIMUS have done severe damage to my confidience.I have to go in to my bank to see how much Damage was done .And probably have to cancelled by credit Card dont have much confidience using the same card again.I real need justice.SO Buyers BEWARE.

Clarifying some statement from PLimus

AUTHOR: Audrey - (Jamaica)

I wasnt aware of plimus exisistence until the 28 June 2011, when i received my credit card statement.And found a transaction for JA.$862.00.Which i didnt authorised.I had to look the company up on the internet.I see in theiir rebuttal that they had refunded me  as per my request.
How could that be when i knew nothing about this company,and nowhere in my interaction with Homewealth solutions was Plimus mentioned.

I am asking the question ?Refunded me what ? my money ?to whom was it sent?.Who sent the request.I tried to cancel the subscription on the 28 june 2011 but wasnt successful.If they had refunded me my funds,wouldnt i have received an e-mail.Where have they sent the refund,Would really love to know..My bank will be trying to recover the above sum that i had not authorised.The previous transaction that i did when i submitted my credit card i dont care about .I told my bank to let it be i paid to learn a lesson,i wont be caught in the same trap twice.Their is a stop order on my card so nomore funds can be taken without my knowledge.
If PLIMUS is a reputable company, why have they billed me ,for a one time transaction that i did on the 23 may ,2011 with Homewealth solution,that i have already paid for.
How can they claim they have refunded me ?Did the money go to my bank?
What is Plimus connection with homewealth Solution/homewebsitebuilders

 The Real Cost of this saga is not the Us$46.34 that i lost,But it is the inconviencience doing without a credit card while the bank does an investigation inorder to re-issue me a replacement one.
The real damage is the loss of confidience in doing legitimate online business.No amount of money nor redress can make that return. So buyers BEWARE.

AUTHOR: Plimus - (United States of America)

We just wanted to let you know that all of the transactions you noted are, in fact, in our (Plimus) system.  They absolutely exist, so we are unsure how you received an error message to the contrary. Our records reflect the following transactions:

And all of those transactions were refunded on 6/28/11 at 1:36pm PDT per your request.

We processed the credit card transactions for the products/services you purchased, and, upon request, we refunded them - that is our role as the payment processor/merchant of record. If you have issues with the products or services that were purchased, please take those issues up with the vendor directly (in these cases - Homewebsitebuilder.com and iNet Squared Ltd).
