Ill start with the first scam. On may 20, 2008 a girl (Kristn Powell and once again her trainee) basically invited themselves into my home and made themselves comfortable on my chairs. They talked me into purchasing a subscription for my 2 year old daughter. She too was getting points for a trip. So, i fell for it and purchased the magazine for $38.00. Yep, you guessed it.....n nothing! They were from Texas with CRS/Lone Star Subscriptions) So I figured, well yea I am out $38 bucks to scam artists. I still have my pride and dignity and all they got was $38 (and I know thousands of people got scammed for more) So i thought of it as a lesson learned!!! Well people my story continues.

Today is 08/08/08 and while finishing the dishes another knock at my door. Nick Stuckey (From Success Express Sales - PCCS) started babbling about figuring out what he wnts to be when he grows up. You guys know the usual winning points for a trip bla bla bla. In his babbling, he mentioned he was 20, and usually is the top sales man, however he ran into alot of people like me, that got scammed by the last group. Oh, but dont worry he was not a scam and has all these permits for all sorts of town in Montana. He even offered to buy me dinner. Should have taken the dinner. He even said that the last people had fake reciepts, and what I should look for in the future.
But insted, I bought into his lies and got dooped again.

Ok, so after he left I googled that company and found out they were frauds too. So immediately I contacted my credit card company and I am disputing the charges!!!! I told the CC Company about the situation and lets all hope that this time I win!! And ok really this time, I really learned my lesson!!!!!!

---Misuse of this website again by an irresponsible consumer
---First we have nothing to do with Lone Star Subscriptions.  I have been in this industry for over 16 years and have never heard of them. 
---As we have all seen there have been outrageous situations where a police officer beats an individual and it gets publicity.  Does that make all the police officers bad?  There is good & bad in many different aspects of life.                                                                                        ---She even says that Nick Stuckey had permits from all over Montana and informed her of  what to look for from bad companies.  

---Once this website came to my attention I felt compelled to give some FACTUAL INFORMATION to consumers who visit the Rip Off Report website.   I have read all 10 complaints regarding SUCCESS EXPRESS SALES, INC & PACIFIC COAST CLEARING SERVICES, INC on this website.
---Unfortunately all these reports are based solely on assumptions and hear say.  Every one of them have been filed by irresponsible consumers.  It is this kind of irresponsible consumer reporting that slanders good companies based on assumptions and hear say. Please get facts and both sides of the story before you just jump online and do damage in our case to young adults doing something positive and improving their futures.                                                                   ---We would have liked the opportunity to address these situations in a professional business manner.   These consumer should have contacted us through our telephone number (1-253-851-8414 customer service) or mailing address (5775 Soundview Dr. #103-C Gig Harbor, WA 98335), provided on our receipts. or through our website(sesales.info).  We could have appropriately addressed these situations and presented the FACTS.                                  ---This is a positive and constructive goal orientated program for young adults, over 18 years old, to  travel the country developing inter personal communication skills, gaining an education in direct sales and brightening the future of the youth of America. 
---Our representatives are in a contest selling magazines subscriptions to collect points to win a trip to Europe, a Carribean Cruise, or a trip to Australia and cash awards up to $5000.  The top two individuals in the contest every six months win the trip.  The cash awards are awarded in a separate contest in $500 increments.                                                                                ---Our business group, Success Express Sales, Inc., has been participating in these contests for over 20 years.  We adhere to a strict code of ethics and moral standards.  Our magazine subscriptions are cleared through the premier magazine subscription clearinghouse & customer service center in the United States, Pacific Coast Clearing Services, Inc.                                    ---In regard to the other issue in these reports filed:
1) These are young individuals who are working on their futures.  They are going to be inquisitive on your career, interest, etc.  They are trying to find their path in life and improve their futures. 
2) The magazine term and cost are dictated by the publishers of the magazines. On any particular magazine it could be just a 1yr, 2yr or 3yr subscription that we are required to offer.
3) There is a $15 process & handling fee for each customer regardless of how many magazines are purchased.                                                                                                                        4) If more than one magazine is purchased the customer can choose a magazine off of a list that Success Express Sales, Inc. will pay for.                                                                                     5) If magazines ordered are paid for in cash they do receive bonus points.                                   6) All contestants are instructed to obey signs posted and to represent our contest appropriately. ---Success Express Sales, Inc. does its best to give this opportunity to good young adults searching for an avenue or a path to success.  We conduct general back ground checks and are very selective.  Occasionally an individual may slip through who is not up to our standards and these individuals are released immediately from the contest.                                                         ---For any inquiries questions or concerns pertaining to this opportunity please contact us through the website: sesales.info, email: mike@sesales.info or 1-877-646-5050.   
---I believe this could be a fantastic information tool for consumers if used in a responsible
