A young lady came to my house last night, 10/21/02,by the name of "Vikki Law" saying she was selling magazines to win a trip to Cancun. I thought she was from my neighborhood because it's that time of year for fundraisers.

She said she only needed 1000 more points to win the trip and she did me as she did the others using high pressure tactics. Believe me, she could sell oil to the Arabs! I proceeded to buy the magazine (at a higher price mind you) and off she went.

She was a very pleasant and charming young girl. I had a few doubts but I ordered anyway. Then she told me they were off to Raleigh today and Charlotte tomorrow. So this morning I decided to check the company out on the web and low and behold there were a ton of ripoff reports!

I called my bank and explained what had happened. They were so understanding that they waived the $31 stop pymt fee. I faxed a nasty gram along with the receipt and the reverse side of it that said I could cancel within 3 days letting them know how pathetic they were and they were NOT getting my money. To my knowledge it accepted my fax and won't they be surprised they won't be getting my money either! Maybe the trip they need to take is to jail for scamming honest consumers. I hope you can help put a stop to them!!

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Decembria, you're lying to yourself ..sit down and really think about what you are saying insulting other people who have been ripped off by the company that you work under

AUTHOR: Elizabeth - (U.S.A.)

I too worked for PMI (Crew # 046 Darst sales), just a little under two years. Let me tell you something sweetie, you are BRAINWASHED!!! Let me ask you something, how much of that "$23,000" did you actually see? It's probably on your "books" right? Guess what, your books are a figment of your imagination. If and when you ever decide to leave, you won't see a dime-I never did. So you say after 3 years you look forward to promotion? How many jobs have you had that you have to wait that long to get promoted? What do you have to show for the thousands of miles you've walked, the doors you've knocked on and had slammed in your face? Do you own your own house or car yet? I doubt it. I'm sure it's wonderful now, because you don't have any bills to pay! You have transportation to and from work every day! What other job could you possibly have and be able to say those things?

A little advice, sit down and really think about what you are saying insulting other people who have been ripped off by the company that you work under. (First of all you can't even spell!!) I wouldn't be so quick to defend this company, because when push comes to shove you don't even work for them you're an "independent contractor". How many independent contractors do you know that have been held against their will, told what time to wake up in the morning, what time you have to work until, and how many sales you have to make in a day? Independent contractors don't have to meet a quota.

I too felt the same way you did 6 years ago when I left. I still felt that way for awhile after I left. It took me about a year and a half to feel normal after I got home. When you do something for so long and it's just about the only thing you know how to do, it takes a long time to feel right anywhere else. But, after 6 years, I own my own home, my own car, I pay my own bills I decide what time I want to go to bed and wake up in the morning, I can cook my own meals on my own stove (not have to eat a McDonald's breakfast as punishment for having a bad day)and I work 5 days a week 8 hours a day, I know how much money I'll get paid every week. No one yells at me and calls me a weak a*s or throws things at my head during check in. If i'm sick I stay home from work and get paid for a personal day. I also get to go to the doctor if I need to not an emergency room in whatever state I happened to be in at the time. Nobody steals my belongings or uses my shampoo without asking, I don't have to lock up my personal belongings. I get to do what I want, when I want because I'm not an "independent contractor".

I wish you all the best of luck, and hope that someday you'll realize what's really going on. But until then, don't insult someone because they are voicing their frustration. People work hard for their money and don't really like to have it stolen. After all, how long does it take you to make $70.00? C'mon now be honest after your "rent"and draw and don't forget your "cancelations" it takes about 4 months to make the money that PMI just had you steal from someone.

So go ahead Decembria, just keep on lying to yourself, whatever helps you sleep at night.
