Nationwide Cyber Systems Another victim of Nationwide Cyber Systems' Ripoff Hollywood Florida
*Consumer Suggestion: As a truck driver, I saw the machines all the time in truck stops. Of course, people rarely, if ever, used them.
*Consumer Suggestion: Lawsuit - Everything was misrepresented, and the "Happy customers," given for positive feedback, were all paid shills.
*Consumer Suggestion: Spend first, think last? One wonders how the victims are able to raise the capital in the first place.
After receiving the highly overpriced machines it took 6 months to get the 1st one located, but not without a lot of badgering of the same characters Kim mentioned. The $800-1300/month internet access income stated to us by Rick Osario during a phone conversation proved to be a real joke and gross misrepresentation, let alone the absense of any income or help in advertising. We were usually able to break even on expenses on one machine but the other machine NCS found a location for us is on par with other victim' experiences,--- a low rate, seedy hotel in the Baltimore area that has produced $9.00 of income in last 2 months. Both were located over 90 miles from our residence and anytime some problem as simple as a modem reset happens it's a long trip to figure out what's wrong. NCS is not there to provide any technical support. Other "out in the sticks" locations provided to us did not have DSL or ADSL availability and to bring broadband in via systems like DIRECTWAY are cost prohibative
The hotel management where the "best" machine WAS located requested it be removed as free internet service was being provided to all their customers in the rooms and via a free access terminal in the lobby. (Try to find a hotel/motel that doesn't provide internet access for customers. Mid level and above provide the service. That leaves only the low rent variety for these manchines.)
Now that machine sits in the garage and Nationwide Cyber Systems' phone is disconnected. Based on recent TV ads, it appears NCS has reincarnated itself as Transnet Wireless. I wonder what sort of laudatory Federal Trade Commission, Better Business Bureau, and financial statements Transnet Wireless provides. Bet it looks a lot like what NCS provided to prospective victims.
The best I'll probably be able to do is depreciate both machines quickly and/or MAYBE sell them to someone who wants to pay me 10% of what they cost. At least I might get something of a tax write-off.
