#1 UPDATE Employee

TAFERGO is not scam. I receive a check!

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

TAFERGO and to Premier Solutions are different.

I sent $79.00 to Premier Solutions, I got package of 60 flyers, labels & envelopes to be stuffed and mailed out and I did it as instructed ... But the deal was: that I will be receiving some commissions in my return mailings in 10 days I did not receive anything in 4 month. Then I'll make an order myself, and still I got nothing?! I supposed to get $10.00 commissions, where is it? So I sent 2 letters for refund got no response!

For the same job from TAFERGO, I start receiving CHECKS! I will report to TAFERGO about this UNFAIR posting.

The Associated Press

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Two companies in Arkansas and Washington state, along with their operator, have been fined nearly $1.3 million by a judge who ruled that they scammed consumers with false promises of money for stuffing envelopes.

Pulaski County Circuit Judge Timothy Fox ruled Wednesday that Sharon Jeanette Henningsen, 63, of Van Buren, the now-defunct Home Business Systems Inc., and Trail Head Options of Spanaway, Wash., violated the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act 1,262 times.

The judge also ordered Henningsen and the two businesses to pay $156,183 in restitution and $20,000 in attorney fees.

The state attorney general's office filed the lawsuit in 2005 and is to establish a plan to reimburse customers harmed by the businesses, although Deputy Attorney General James DePriest told the judge in a hearing Tuesday he was not sure the state would be able to collect the restitution.

In its lawsuit, the state alleged Henningsen and the businesses said clients would be paid for stuffing and mailing envelopes at $10 per letter. The letters solicited buyers for a 30-page book entitled "How to Make Money Mailing Letters." Clients were told to first pay application fees of $59, $79, $99 or $149 for the work at home stuffing envelopes.

Clients were promised earnings of $2,900 to $5,000 weekly, but no one earned even the minimum $590 a week that was promised, the lawsuit said. They went unpaid for stuffing envelopes and made money only according to sales of book, nor did clients receive refunds of their fees as promised, the suit said.

The judge previously threw out Henningsen's challenge to the lawsuit and her effort to countersue after she refused to comply with court orders to turn over documentation about Home Business Systems in Van Buren.

In her countersuit, she claimed the state and the Fort Smith lawyer who initially represented her conspired to unlawfully seize her property. She said she was due punitive damages of 107,500 ounces of fine gold.

Henningsen could not be reached for comment. She has been acting as her own attorney. After the hearing Tuesday, she said the state had wrongly attributed complaints about other companies to her and had misrepresented how her business operated.

Henningsen was the president, vice president, secretary and treasurer of Home Business Systems, when the suit was filed. She was listed as executive trustee of Trail Head in the company's most recent filing, in August, with the Washington secretary of state.
