Platinum Institute 975 E Wood oak Lane, Ste#110 Murray, UT 84117 (888) 747-1143 ext 111. A caller Kyle harassed me on calling on the phone to eliminate credit card bills, buy a home, new car and get wealthy starting in a month. I told to stop calling but still called three more times. Finally I gave in and joined. I used my credit card (out of the pocket expence) to pay $6,835.00 for an investement into their company ebay which they did not own. It was only their college page. Platinum Institute would not give me my money back after one business day nor would they show me my contract and sent only a receipt for my payment and said that that was my contract. Warren Jones on the phone only would give me a $2,000.00 refund and to lose benefits. So I then accepted that. My lawyer said it was fraud way for Platinum Institute to advertise like the way they did. Credit card bank would not do a chargeback because I agreed to accept the $2,000.00 refund. They also tricked me because Warren Jones told me the $2,000.00 was for me and to maybe to take out a women to dine. I used it to pay my credit card. Later their coaches would call and they never helped at all and told me to get high speed internet and a new computer. Later Warren Jones gave me two more 1,000.00 refunds plus $250.00 and closed my account with them and off their books. I never knew until later that Platinum Institute was also going to take 50% of my profits that I made at ebay sales besides the $6,835.00 that I paid up front. I tried to sue in a civil suit with no lawyer from their main office and one to their branch Platinum Institute but both times I received a post card saying "UNKNOWN ADDRESSEE". Later their office consultant Catie Weaver got kind of nasty saying that I should not get any refunds and I needed to have a lawyer speak to her about a civil suit case so I would have to pay a lawyer but they don't need their lawyer and did not want to pay their lawyer to come to a case by me in New Jersey. They also wanted beside the $6,835.00 they would have wanted 50% of all my profits made while I pay for advertiseing which a Jarod White told me was included from the start and before any refunds. At the end they refunded me a total of $4,250.00 out of the $6,835.00. Warren Jones also told me that I would receive the rest of my money during income tax refund. When I did my income tax my agent told me that I was scammed because Platinum Istitute was not a real college place. He did not like the idea of me claiming this but did a way to claim some of the money. I only received $1000.00 refund out of the $2,585.00 they kept. So I still lose 1,585.00 and the company gave nothing for this money. Warren Jones even told me that I may have stole their college page which I did not. I can't even afford to advertise. I'm now in more debt with the credit credit card I used charging me interest of over $435.00 every month. I even used that card to buy food for my 93 year old mother. While now their office women Catie Weaver receiving their phone calls and email firstname.lastname@example.org has called their police and also my local police and a local detective against me for harassing email and phone calls to her. The calls really were for her company and not personally her. I guess it was guilt on her part for her company with fraud advertisements and misleading me. Thier number is 888-222-1143 ext. 111 for Warren Jones. Their address is also located in in Murray, Utah on their receipt and not Salt Lake City, Utah where their main office is. Also Warren Jones told me on the phone several ways that Platinum.com can sue me if I try to sue them and if I keep on complaining about scams with The Better Business Bureau and Consumers Affair which is my rights. This company makes up their own laws, take away my rights, they tell me how to go to court and need to pay a lawyer. They are nasty and stick their nose in my personal life and the try to controll you. They know how to get away with it and to put it over on you.
