SMC called me on the phone and I signed up and they promised me my own website for $479.40 a year.
In their literature they state you can have your own website. However, if you want your own website, they charge $479.40. If that isn't bad enough, when you talk to your "personal Business Coach" you are told you have to sell five $20 gift cards in order to get your own website. I thought that was what the $479.40 per year was for. It ends up costing you $39.95 per month for a year. What do you end up getting for your $479.40 - a catalog. Pretty expensive catalog, don't you think.
I have now been turned over to OSI Collection Services, PO Box 983, Brookfield IL 53008-0983. The first statement said I owed SMC $359.55. I wrote a note and told them this was a very expensive catalog. I offered to send the catalog back. Now SMC is willing to settle for $287.64. Guess I'll send in a copy of the application I was sent and write them a letter about the website I was suppose to get.
I have paid SMC $119.85. That is more than the one year trial offer cost.
