After a few well worded statements, they basically said that I was the candidate that they were looking for. They said that they were an internet based business that pretty much sold everything, and that they had a staff of professional marketers that were there to get me up and running in no time at all.
They went on to say that they made thier money from processing credit card invoices from my sales through a sister company called USA Card Services.
They went on to tell me that they were going to send me a laptop computer to work off of. And all I had to do was sign a lease for four to eight months, depending on the contract I chose.
Right. Try 48 months. At $136.24 per month on a non-cancelable lease. After1 year, I have paid more that $1600.00 for a $500.00 laptop. I still owe 3 more years. Then I have to send it back and pay them to re-condition it.
Out of the blue, I start getting e-mail from Lease-Breaker.Org telling me that I can legally break my lease. And, that all three of the companies previously mentioned have been sued.
First, how did they get my e-mail address? Second, why did they just dissappear? Are they part of the same scam group?
