I bought into SMC believing it to be a money-making business. As I have read from others, they are all but that. I bought the 'gold membership' to avoid monthly payments. I received my business kit and set up my website. I was told the first month was free for the website. The first of what was a lie. Days later I had $29.95 taken out of my checking account. I called three different times and left a message every time. I never received a call back. This put up red flags for me.
I finally got with someone, and got my $29.95 refunded. Then, I made a couple orders. Only to find out I wasn't doing them correctly. I had called my coach for help which he wouldn't return my calls. By this time it was about three weeks into my membership. I decided to cancel it before things really got bad. I followed ALL the things required to receive my refund except for insuring the kit for $100. I refused to do that because it was not worth that much money. I work part-time for the post office so I have a clue about different things needed. I sent it with a delivery conformation only. I'm sure a lot of people are insuring and therefore SMC is claiming not receiving to collect all those $100 insurance claims. Therefore, they can't prove they sent them.
I did not receive the full refund, only $199.95 instead of the $299.95 because the $100 "gift" the gave me for signing up as a gold member. I never knew you had to pay for your free "gift". I can't believe Tom Bosley would advertise for this fraudulent company. I'm sure if an insurance lawyer was to do some checking into the business kit returns, they would find big fraud there.
I have learned my lesson to never trust money-making plans. This lesson has even made me doubt all commercials I see on tv.
