World Traders Assocation know as WTA and International Merchandise Group known as IMG are both the same company operating in different states. They pretend to provide home based business to individuals with dummy showcases of products and resources (at www.wtaaffiliates.org) and after taking your money they will turn their back on you. I came to know from many business partners and friends who have been ripoff by the World Traders Association and International Merchandise Group.
On May 27, 2003, after numerous complaints filed against WTA, the California Attorney General Issued the following statement
"We verified that World Traders Association is not registered with the California Attorney General as a Seller Assisted Marketing Plan. The company's registration was revoked for allegedly violating the SAMP Act. To verify current registration, or obtain additional information relating to seller assisted marketing plans contact the Attorney General by calling (916) 322-3360"

After WTA registration was revoked in CA on May 2003, they formed a new website and a company called International Merchandise Group on July 3, 2003. Check their new website www.imgresults.com. Both IMG and WTA share the same DNS server NS1.choiceinternet.com and NS2.choiceinternet.com
IMG is now operating in Colorado instead by moving slightly away from the banned territory in California so their network can continue to operate within close range. Their office in Las Vegas, Navada and Sylmar CA still exist and the Denver, Colorado office acting as a store front to attract new customers to swindle a sum of $8000 from anyone who they can trap in their lucrative scam business.
More than 500 affiliates who invested for WTA home based business lost their investment money between $6995 to $7995.
Finally to comply with the attorney general ruling, WTA took down their website www.wtraders.com but the other website, wtaaffiliates.org, which display the phony products still exist. Now they re-emerge as a new company, International Merchandise Group, and has new websitea IMGRESULTS.COM and IMGROUPONLINE.COM
However, they still never learn their lesson because nobody in the company were arrested and prosecuted.
Now IMG and WTA are still continuing to operate in different states in CO, NV and CA and they will continue to ripoff hundreds and thousands of people in years to come. If they are not stop now, more people will lose their life time savings from them. It is time to call it an end to the scam. Let the attorney general office in CO, CA and NV investigate this matter. Let us all affiliates who have been ripoff by WTA and IMG come forward and file a complain. Call the attorney general office in Navada, CA to file complain against World Traders Assocation, Call. 909-825-7280. Call Colorado Attorney General to complain against International Merchandise Group.
Some of the people I know who were ripoff by WTA are looking to file a lawsuit, anybody else who want to file a lawsuit against WTA are welcome
