On Aug 1, 2007 a person named DAVID TRENT call me at my home phone and introduced himself as from EBAY. He explained Internet Logistics "does police work for EBAY and he noticed that I have internet activities"
To make the story short..he convinced me and I paid $9000 using my VISA. The following I called and the receptionist said "CORPORATE OFFICE, MAY I HELP YOU? . I asked her if I am calling EBAY and if David Trent works for EBAY and the answer was YES. As I go through their training materials I found out that I can open and EBAY store for a lot lesser money and the hosting is only $15 per month theirs is $29.99 per month.
Realizing I was scammed, I politely requested refund telling them that my health situation will not allow me to continue with my business. THEY REFUSED.
My credit card company made out the check to INTERNET LOGISTICs but I never signed a contract with them. What I signed was a hosting agreement with Brightbuilders for $29.99 a month. When I asked for guarantee of service for the $9,000 I paid, I was told , it is NOWHERE HERE nor THERE and that I should just continue my lessons.
These two companies are now giving me a round around.
I continue to communicate with Internet Logistics/Michael Adamson. I told them I am filing a complaint againts their company if they do not refund my money. They said they are ready to forward their evidence, recorded conversations, compliance etc.
In their emails, it is very clear that THEY plan to MAKE IT appear that I contacted them first which is a LIE.
Mike Adamson is my contact person, although the person who initially called me is a DAVID TRENT. I sent David Trent emails but he never responded.
In Mike's recent emails, they told me that they NEVER sell business opportunities and that they only sell product and services on existing businesses. THIS IS A BLATANT LIE. They said that they "received my information and that I have an established relationship with dropshipper before they called me. THIS IS A BLATANT LIE. I never had an internet business. They thought I have because I have a website as an agent for a company.
There training materials advises their students like me to sign up as a member with ONESOURCE for $300 in order to get connected to a drop shipper or wholesaler such as WORLDWIDE BRANDS. They probably will connive with a drop shipper that they know to make it appear that I have a connection with a drop shipper before Aug 1, 2007. I DO NOT HAVE A SALES TAX ID and therefore cannot establish a relationship with a wholesaler.
I have all the PROOF that they are in the business of SELLING BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES. Also, check their BBB reports for numerous complaints.
On one of the lessons, it states:
Lesson 2: Creating and Building Your EBusiness:
" Learning to create and run a successful business is the main principle of being in control of your business and life. BECAUSE MANY OF OUR STUDENTS HAVE NEVER OWNED BUSINESS BEFORE, making decisions about their company can be like charting unfamiliar territory. THey have never been taught how to make methodical, reasoned, and weighed decisions which they can clearly justify in writing. ( This is part of the process of documenting a business)
They are NOW lying and trying to protect themselves.
I know that they have victimized numerous people including myself.
My research shows that they clearly violated the FTC law by making me pay the very day they called me (Aug 1, 2007). Although they recorded my consent to pay by credit card that very night, it was because they made me believe that they are employees of EBAY.
This people CLEARLY needs to be investigated. THEY ARE EXPERTS in scamming people.
Try their website:
https://bright.securesites.com/ THIS IS A BOGUS front website.
They give me a website to access their training but it needs account number and a password: try this
I AM sure that they have victimized numerous consumers.
SCARED for my LIFE
