I was approached by Mike Saul to be a member of his RYO club.
He came into my store and started inquiring about how much trouble the
government was about to give people who owned RYO stores. After talking
for a few days and being drawn into his deceptive con I decided to
become a member and paid him over $2,200.
I soon became the target of the local ATF and IRS here in Niceville, FL
due to the nature of my ryo store. I tried to contact Mr. Saul to obtain
contact information for the legal representation that his club members
are supposedly retaining but have been unsuccessful. In 4 months time I
have yet to receive so much as an email from Mike Saul or RYOclubs.com.
It seems like once he knew I had trouble he wanted no part of
fulfilling his promises.
I believe I was originally looked at by the ATF and IRS because of my
dealings with Mike Saul. As soon as I met this person my business
basically fell apart. He took the money and ran the other way leaving me
to fend for myself once the money had changed hands.
I felt like I was basically thrown under the bus once he had my money in
hand and I needed his help. I seriously doubt there are any benefits to
this "club" other than some very useless consultation. Half of which I
already knew or could have figured out myself.
Stay away from RyoClubs.com, Mike Saul or anyone associated with him. He
is just out to get money from people he has no intention of helping or
Live and learn...... I will definitely check up on anyone I give money
to for "consultation". If I had done this with yoClubs.com and Mike
Saul I would have noticed that he may or may not have served time for
illegal online gambling operations. Or if I would have contacted his
past business associates I would have learned he burns every bridge he
ever crosses. I'll never deal with this slime again.
