I have been researching all companies connected to wealth power systems, based in UTAH, in the town of SANDY ever since I realized they had DEFRAUDED ME IN THE AMOUNT OF $5,950. charged to three of my credit cards.
NOW, having read every piece of research on the above that I could find, sad to say, I am not the only person who was defrauded by this "string of connected companies. My loss was significant to me, but I've learned during the last 4 months (come the first week of April, 20ll) of digging anywhere & everywhere for any tidbits of information about all companies connected with wealth power systems, (who began their own business in 2007), who appear to be in charge of all the rest of their smaller companies. Some of the victims have been defrauded in amounts of nearly $20,000!! Others were hit for much less, even less than the amount of my own loss, but were sendor citizens kuvubg tigetger ub irder ti sgare exoebsesm abd sine were dusabkedm beedubg Government Grants for living expenses, and so on.
I checked out both on-line Better Business Bureau, and Ripoffreport.com Online BBB has 100 complaints from other victims from the past 3 years!!! Wealth Power Systems has has returned a feew people's losses to their credit cards from which it came. However, the Big Ones regarding Real estate, and other Financial offerings, were the Nearly $20,000. ones. Apparently none of them have been resolved. Several of those have been waiting since 2009. I could have missed others that were done prior to 2009.
Its a sad thing that our country has been over-run by liars, cheats, and thieves (which several complaints on ripoffreport.com has stated) Many of them could be, no doubt illegal aliens. Not long ago, I received two Postal Money Orders from a Mexican asking me to take $500. for myself and WIRE the remainder to their office in LONDON. Our Country obviously HAS lost much of its morals and business ethics during the past 30 years. If one doesn't want to believe that, just stop and THINK! Many of our country's politicians are responsible for the mess our Great Country is in right now!! Wasteful spending and continuous raids on our so-called Social Security TRUST FUND TO FUND ONE OF THEIR STATE PROJECTS AND GET THEMSELVES RE-ELECTED! (WE CERTAINLY CAN'T TRUST OOUR POLITICIANS TO KEEP THEIR FILTHY HANDS OUT OF IT, NOW CAN WE)? Our Government is transparent enough, even now, that it's easy to uderstand why we're in this mess NATIONALLY. Our younger generations learned it from our politicians! Now, many of thes SCAMS AND FRAUDS, COULD BE OPERATED BY FOLKS FROM OUR YOUNGER GENERATIONS WHO ALSO LEARNED FROM FROM SOME OF THEIR ELDERS THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE A FREE LIVING PAID FOR BY WE TAX-PAYERS. iF THEY CAN'T QUALIFY FOR THOSE FUNDS, THEN, iI suppose, they have to be busy copying our policicians who taught them to lie, cheat, and steal!!!
With WEALTH POWER SYSTEMS, MY FUNDING RESOURES, AND A LENGTHY LIST OF OTHER CONNECTED COMPANIES, WE VICTIMS ALL SEEM TO HAVE THE SAME COMPLAINTS. cOMPANIES WHO LIE, CHEAT, AND STEAL FROM WHOMEVER, THEY CAN "SUCKER IN" WITH THEIR HIGH PRESSURE SALES PITCHES, AND PROMISES OF HUGE GOVERNMENT GRANTS! Having developed a 20 year career in the Insurance Industry (to support my two sons, and myself following my Korean War Vet's death, I should have recognized the high pressure sales tactics, and hung up the phone on ANDY SORENSON WHO CALLED ME FROM MY FUNDING RESOURCES! But, ike most of the other victims, $150,000. Government Grant for HOME REPAIRS on my old home SOUNDED LIKE A GIFT FROM GOD, HIMSELF!
I agreed to sign up for that GOVERNMENT GRANT to make SAFETY REPAIRS ON MY OLD HOME, SINCE JUST TWO OR THREE MONTHS EARLIER, i'D HAD AN ELECTRICAL SHORT in the light fixture in my tiny office. I live alone, and was very lucky to manage to put that fire out before it inflamed the entire attic.
The first thing I had to do ALMOST IMMEDIATELY after purcchasing this home in 2006 was to put a new roof on it when the first wind storm hit in the fall when the old shingles began blowing off the entire house. (COST, $5,000. FOR 1000 SQUARE FT) Many other repairs were necessary as time went on.. A neighbor from across the street wandered over a few days after the shingles were laying all around to tell me, "...it happens EVERY YEAR!" I could go on and on with the many home repairs I've had to make since SEPTEMBER, 2006, but I'd rather mention, once again liars, cheats, and theives in our younger generations.
This house belonged to the Mother of the Realtor who solded it to me. Even though our State (Idaho), has a law that requires that anything wrong with the property MUST be acknowledged by the LISTING/SELLING REALTOR, if known by him/her to the BUYER. The SELLING REALTOR NEVER MENTIONED ANYTHING TO ME, OR, MY REALTOR QBOUT THE CONDITION OF THIS HOUSE! Come to find out HE WAS THE GENERAL CONTRACTOR WHO BUILT THIS HOUSE 10 YEARS PRIOR TO MY PURCHASE OF IT. NO ONE WILL EVER CONVINCE ME THAT HE DIDN'T KNOW THAT THE HEATING SYSTEM HAD BEEN GIVING HIS MOTHER PROBLEMS. Mothers, widowed or just living alone, ALWAYS call their Sons, first, when something is going wrong in their own home! Just another example of liars, cheats, and thieves in our younger generations!
THAT REALTOR WOULD PROBABLY HAVE BEEN IN ONE OF THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS THAT MANY OF THE MY FUNDING RESOURCES AKA WEALTH POWER SYSTEMS, AND EMPOWER DIRECT AKA WEALTH POWER SYSTEMS ARE IN. I know that, at least, one MFR Department Manager is 27. Same Generation as the Realtor!
Several of the complaints filed against MY FUNDING RESOURCES AKA WEALTH POWER SYSTEMS ARE VERY NEARLY IDENTICAL TO MINE!
1. MY FUNDING RESOURCES AKA WEALTH POWER SYSTEMS, CALLED ME! I'd never heard of them, so I couldln't have called THEM! I spoke with 4 different representatives of MFR and noted Ph #'s and Extension #'s along with the most important statements regarding Government Grants they were claiming they "Placed for our Government", and had "QUALIFIED ME" FOR $150,000. G. GRANT
FOR HOME REPAIRS! Come to find out, too late, THEY HAVE NO CONNECTION WITH OUR GOVERNMENT WHATSOEVER! LIARS!
2. A couple of weeks later, haaving not heard a word from ANYBODY I decided to call the Representatives WHO'S PH #'S & EXTENSIONS I'd noted, and ask, "When is the Research I'm supposed to get going to get here?" Not one of the 4 Representatives returned my call! I called each one several more times. SAME RESULTS. By then, 3 - 4 weeks had passed, with no research in my mail box. Then, I was fairly certain I'd been scammed. Once MFR AKA WPS GOT THE MONEY FROMMY CREDIT CRDS, THEY REFUSED TO TALK WITH ME WHEN I DALLED FOR MORE INFO, BUT BEGAN SNOW-BALLING me with "Invitations from MEL FELLOR TO JOIN HIS ON-LINE CLASSES ON GRANT WRITING! HOWEVER, IT WAS MADE VERY CLEAR THAT HIS ORGANIZATION CALLED DIM DIM WAS NOT A PART OF THE WEALTH POWER SYSTEMS. IT WAS ALSO CLEAR, TO ME, THAT HIS ORGINAZATION IS TRAINING NEW PEOPLE JOIN HIS OWN PEOPLE IN THEIR POSSIBLE ........................ BIT DIFFERENT TYPE OF SCAM TRAINING.
A little later on, a Local Retired Sheriff's Deputy explained the difference between a SCAM and a FRAUD TO ME. Turns out I had been DEFRAUDED, rather than SCAMMED!! MUCH WORSE, SINCE THOSE BUSINESSES WERE REAL BUSINESSES! According to the FORMER LOCAL DEPUTY, CONSTITUTES FRAUD ANY TIME A REAL BUSINESS DOES ANYTHING INTENTIONALLY THAT THEY KNOW WILL HURT THEIR CLIENT! SCAMS ARE DONE INTENTIONALLY BY PEOPLE WHO AREN'T IN BUSINESS AT ALL! They Scam by the use of letters, phone calls, emails, and other ways that does'nt force themthem to FACE THE PERSON they're trying to SCAM.
3. The promised "RESEARCH" papers didn't show up in my mail box for approximately 3 or 4 days beyond 2 months time since the SALES PITCH had been made to me over my residential phone. In the meantime, I'd learned, through my own research on theis string of lying, cheating, companies, that, according to law, it should have been in my mail box INSIDE OF 30 DAYS!!! When it did finally arrive, there was NOTHING IN THEIR RESEARCH THAT WAS OF ANY WORTH TO ME! There was not even one GOVERNMENT GRANT MENTIONED IN IT ANYWHERE!! As mentioned by several other complaints on ripoffreport.com, their research consisted of very small foundations, and other NON-PROFIT CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS, NONE OF WHICH APPLIED TO ME. MFR'S Research GAVE LOTS OF THINGS I COULD DO TO MY OLD HOME THAT WOULD GET ME INDIVIDUAL TAX CREDITS. My problem being that my income is SOCIAL SECURITY, AND A SMALL VA BENEFIT FOR THE DEATH OF MY HUSBAND DUE TO THE KOREAN WAR IN THE '50'S MY TOTAL INCOME IS NOT TAXABLE, AND SO SMALL THAT IT PUTS ME IN THE POVERTY LEVEL! TAX CREDITS DON'T WORK FOR ME!!!
One of the Private Foundations's GRANT that I might have qualified for was limited to $500. Another was $300-2,000. but limited to "little 'ole Ladies, here in the GREAT NORTHWEST, who are are/were suffering (Physically). That's not ME either. Although I'm a 73 year old Vet's Widow, I'm still reasonably strong and healthy. I still take care of myself after taking care of my Mother for 16 years watching her, die by degrees, of ALZHEIMERS DISEASE. ANOTHER, esd $300. to $6.000. but, limited to persons who had no family or friends who would help them. That's not me either. I have two gown Sons, two grown Gransdons, and numerous friends who are johnny on the spot when I need help, as they all are for other elderly folks, too. In a nut-shell, none of the Research sent to me, could I qualify for due to their own limitations. And, in my opinion, it would have been a waste of time to complete applications and requests, SINCE THEIR OWN LIMITATIONS WERE SOOO CLEAR! I forgot to mention that many of the so-called Research items sent to me, were all kinds of home and home repair LOANS available! Again I had applied for a GOVERNMENT GRANT!
If I could have afforded payments on LOANS, I would have gotten one back in 2006 when I learned that my home was literally falling apart around me, and DEFINITELY UNSAFE TO LIVE IN!!! THAT'S WHY I NEEDED A GOVERNMENT GRANT THAT I KNEW WERE AVAILABLE (According to national news), and believed I could qualify for right away! They're still available. As soon as I get ALL MYCOMPLAINTS FILED, I willI will go to our local college, (8 miles from my old house), enroll in classes for GRANT WRITING, AND APPLICATION FORM COMPLETION. I HAVE NO DESIRE TO WORK WITH A A BUNCH OF LIARS, CHEATS, AND THIEVES. This string of companies are of the worst kind! I've spoken to numerous Customer Service employees and other Representatives, and have found ONLY TWO, who from their conversation wording suggests to me that they don't totally support what their companies are doing!
Another example of LIARS is within this string oc companies, as well. When they created MY PROFILE in the MY FUNDING RESOURCES paper-work which came to me in THEIR RESEARCH PACKET, ONE PAGE WAS AN ENTIRE LIE. sTATING THAT Sharon Kelly was looking for SEED MONEY to start a Veteran's Charitable Organization so that SHE could give back to our Vet's. Never in my life have I even thought of such a thing. I'm far too impatient fot run such an operation. A second
page stated, flatly, that I have an ANNUAL INCOME OF $57,000. IF THAT WERE TRUE, I WOULDN'T BE NEEDING A GOVERNMENT GRANT, NOW WOULD I? NOR WOULD I WASTE MY TIME APPLYING FOR SUCH, SINCE THAT WOULD BE LYING!! I DON'T LIE!
5. MY FUNDING RESOURCES (ANDY SORENSON) told me that they got my personal in formation KEVIN TRUDEAU, THE AUTHOF OD A BOOK I HAD PURCHASED CALLED DEBT CURE. NOT THAT I WAS DEEPLY IN DEBT, BUT BECAUSE I WANTED TO KNOW HOW OUR BANKING AND CREDIT CARD INSTITUTIONS REALLY OPERATED. I HAD JUST FINISHED A TWO YEAR BATTLE WITH BANK OF AMERICA WHO DOUBLE BILLED ME FOR A PURCHASE OF $1,059.95. BECAUSE BANK OF AMERICA WOULD NOT ADMIT THAT THEY HAD CHARGED ME TWICE FOR THE SAME PURCHASE, IT TOOK A LONG TIME TO GET THROUGHTO THEM, BUT I FINALLY WON THE BATTLE IN 2008, AS I REMEMBER. IN ORDER TO WIN, I HAD GONE THROUGH 2 FULL YEARS OF BANK OF AMERICA STATEMENTS, FOUND THE TWO DOUBLE CHARGES, AND SENT COPIES OF THOSE STATEMENTS TO THE C.E.O. AND FINALLY GOT RID OF THAT PROBLEM!
At this point, I believe its entirely possible that kevin trudeau could be the owner, or one of the partners, in the ownership of wealth power systems, and all the smaller companies. One of the ripoffreport.com complaints states that a man by the name of JASON PALMER IS ONE OF THEIR HIGH-UP EMPLOYEES, AND IS A CONVICTED FELON IN UTAH! Interestingly enough , the FTC makes a similar report on kevin trudeau, plus having had him in court, and TRUDEAU IS NOW (PERHAPS FINISHED NOW), PAYING OFF $500,000. IN FINES AND RESTITUTIONS TO ALL THE CONSUMERS WHO BOUGHT HIS BOOKS, AND THEN THE NATURAL PRODUCTS HE PROMOTED IN HIS BOOK, AND MANY INFOMERCIALS!! COULD KEVIN TRUDEAU NOW HAVE THE ALIAS F JASON PALMER??
6. MY FUNDING RESOURCES FOLLOWED KEVIN TRUDEAU'S LEAD, AND PASSED MY PERSONAL INFORMATION INCLUDING MY THREE CREDIT CARD NUMBERS ON TO ANOTHER ONE OF THEIR COMPANIES CALLED EMPOWER DIRECT WHOM I'D NEVER HEARD OF, AND FMR DID NOT CONTACT ME FOR PERMISSION TO PASS MY PERSONAL INFORMATION ON TO A COMPANY I'D NEVER HEARD OF! To make matters worse, when I filed a complaint with the AMERICAN EXPRESS DISPUTE DEPARTMENT, AND USAA'S, I was told that I had given my c/c numbers to MY FUNDING RESOURCES AKA WEALTH POWER SYSTEMS, THEREFORE, THEY THEY HAD EVERY RIGHT TO PASS IT ON TO ANYONE THAT THEY CHOOSE! After numerous letters both dispute departments, AMERICAN EXPRESS IS BEGINNING TO SEE IT MY WAY. NOT USAA, THOUGH, SO I SEE ANOTHER TWO YEAR BATTLE COMING MY WAY.
7. EMPOWER DIRECT (ACCORDING TO AMRICAN EXPRESS' MANUFACTURER OF SPEED PASSES) Explained to me, A SPEED PASS IS A GADGET MANUFACTURED FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE OF TAKING MONEY OFF CREDIT CARDS! AMERICAN EXPRESS HAD TOLD ME: ACCORDING TO OUR RECORDS, YOU GAVE YOUR C/C NUMBER TO EMPOWER DIRECT, SO WE CAN'T HANDLE IT AS A FRAUD." I think I finally convinced their V.P. of RESOLUTION DEPT. that I couldn't have given MY credit card information to THEM, since I'd never heard of them, Nor, spoken to them, and THEY NEVER CONTACTED ME!
I certainly didn't mail it to them. I may be gullible, but i'm not stupid!!!! Its very apparent to me, howerever, that someone at EMPOWER DIRECT AKA WEALTH POWER SYSTEMS, KNOWS HOW TO MAKE OR ALTER THEIR OWN SPEED PASS. i'VE NEVER SEEN, HEARD OF, OR OWNED A SPEED PASS, THEREFORE, THEY COULDN'T HAVE BEEN USING MINE!! NEITHER DID EMPOWER DIRECT HAVE MY PERMISSION TO USE MY CREDIT CARDS TO CHARGE $5,950.00 ON. NOR, DID FMR HAVE MY PERMISSION TO PASS MY INFORMATION ON TO EMPOWER DIRECT!
THIS WAS A WELL PLANNED FRAUD FROM THE MOMENT i PICKED UP THE PHONE, AND SAID HELLO TO AN FMR REPRESENTATIVE!! Not only that, but it's easy to see and understand that this string of companies, according to the 100 plus complaints in 3 years time filed with BBB, not to mention all the many complaints filed with ripoffreport. com. that this string of companies earn their business profits by defrauding unsuspecting persons, by waving large sums of money through GOVERNMENT GRANTS, (Which they do not place, as they claim) in the faces (or ears) of we unsuspecting targets! I was naive enough to think that, "IF THEY'RE PLACING THEM FOR OUR GOVERNMENT, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO TRUST THEM!!! AND, I ALREADY KNEW ABOUT THE RECORDS OF SO MANY OF OUR POLITICIANS!!
AFTER THIS FRAUD, and watching our politicians, I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO TRUST ANYONE IN THE FUTURE, WHO OFFERS ME ANYTHING!!! I will know in the future, thanks to the IDAHO ATTORNEY GENERAL'S CONSUMER PROTECTION DEPT., ANY TIME AN UPFRONT CHRGE IS DEMANDED, IT, MOST LIKELY IS A FRAUD OR SCAM!!!!!!!! DON'T GIVE IT TO THEM; HANG UP THE PHONE, OR HANG UP THE PHONE; OR DESTROY THE LETTER, , EMAIL; ETC. DO NOT RESPOND!
I was smart enough to avoid many international lotteries in which I had won millions, repeatedly, and a few other scams!!! ifitsoundstoogoodtobetrueit probably is.com.
