*Author of original report: FORGOT ABOUT "MAILING LISTS"
Has anyone noticed the "the only authorized company to set up the SMC websites" are at the SAME ADDRESS as SMC Corporation is at? Hummmmm, more money they make off of schmoes like me. They are literally LYING and DECEIVING people into thinking they are 2 different companies, when they are actually one. Seems like shady practices to me. Then your so called "coach" and I use the word loosely, I had Nia, decides I am being hostile when I tell her I can't afford to give them $2,000 - $3,000 to start a business that I was supposed to own when I paid the money up front. And guess what? NO $100 gift certificate as promised!! THEN the member services tells me they can let me have it - but I have to use it RIGHT THEN! Not good for the "full coaching period" as stated in the paperwork.
Gee, am I wrong here, or is the way they make all of their money off of us idiots who actually think this would work. I knew I would have to pay for merchandise up front to take out and sell - I understood that - but unless you have a few thousand dollars to hand over to their 2 companies - you are screwed!!!
I am calling corporate Monday - not that it would do any good - but bring up their deceptive practices. Maybe I will file my own lawsuit for their deceptive business practices. I am a Paralegal in a small southern town. It would hit the media like crazy!! "Paralegal files lawsuit against big corporate ripoff company SMC - Specialty Merchandising Corp. for deceptive practices!" I wouldn't need an attorney. Maybe I will file a lawsuit - unless their is an attorney with the kahauna's out there wanting media attention with a class action lawsuit for something other than "prescription drugs gone wrong". We would win AND EXPOSE them for the rip offs they truly are! Deceptive practices are morally wrong, and somewhere, and I will find it - legally wrong.
