What were they so upset over? This upset was for several reasons. First off I had placed a complaint on Rip-Off and sent photo copies of EVERY expenditure I had encored regarding the purchase of my six storefronts along with the extra training of PMI.
First I sent these copies to the State Of Oregon Department of Justice, 1162 Court Street N.E., Salem, Oregon. 97301-4096. They in turn sent a copy to the Utah Division of Consumer Protection, Box 146704, Salt Lake City, UT 84114-6704.
From what I had gathered the Utah division contacted them informing them there is an official complaint. This is when they quickly had Mr. Brian Bills on the phone with me.
First off he insisted his company has the upmost in integrity, honesty and is welcomed in every state in the Union. The only complaints made against them are from those who had wanted a fortune without working the plan. He insisted if a person follows every step they have in their manual, and told to them on the Internet, they will make sales.
I came back with how I had followed everything I had been told by my PMI instructor. But unless I could prove it in a hard copy he wasn't going to buy it.
Every time I went to defend myself he would come back with how the only thing I was wanting is a full refund and if I didn't receive this I was going to black mail them, and their good name.
He added how I had successfully placed three websites, and because of this they had fulfilled their part, and therefor I was not entitled to a full refund.
Out of curiosity I asked him how much he did feel I was entitled to? He came back on how I deserved a 0' amount, and nothing more. After all I could not prove to him that I was entitled to anything more.
If we want to get them to stop taking people for all they are worth, then we must take the extra steps in contacting the Division of Consumer Protection in the state we reside in. If they do not send it on to Utah, then take the extra efforts to do it yourself.
IF Mr. Brian Bills contacts you be sure to take notes and post them on this site for others to read.
For myself, I did all that was required of me by my instructor at PMI. To me he was the expert, and with the hefty price I was paying, it is his advice I was to be relying on and doing, and I did!
Here are the notes I took during the conversation of Sept. 17, 2004 with Mr. Brian Bills.
He is to be sending me, through e-mail, everything he had promised me over the phone if I would just work with them. After all, they do not feel any obligations whatsoever in refunding any part of my investment. And when it comes to what I had spent on advertising that's lost and they had nothing to do with it.
He also made sure to tell me that when I accepted the check for $600 from PMI, that's between me and them. To him it looks like they had fulfilled their obligations.
Brian Bills...... E-Mail email@example.com (801) 227-0004 Ext 4583
Sept. 16, 2004......Willing to help out on placing the websites, how to promote and willing to help me with effective marketing, but nothing more.
They are not guaranteeing anything. They will tell me what to do, but if nothing comes of it that's not their fault.
He will furnish me a list of all the steps he felt I did not do.
His web business is selling dress up clothing for kids. Costumes. Little Dress up shop. Com. So far he isn't spending anything for click' and has sold three dresses, which he was surprised in being he hasn't advertised. He has only followed their directions of links' to other sites. He feels this is WHY I didn't do well with my sites.
www.littledressupshop.com Yet if you look it up on the Internet it's not with any search engines. You have to go through and type in littledressupshop.com in the normal search...then you might find it.
Next is a website he wants me to go to so I can read all kinds of wonderful testimonials regarding Stores Online. These ought to be good. I wonder how much they were paid?
www.imergentinc.com This is the cooperate website. Look for the right hand side will show what the customers are saying about Stores Online. They will give testimonials and links to go to their website. Bills is telling me how grateful these people are for Stores Online and PMI, how if it were not for them they could not have succeeded. (Sure)
It's now closing time in Utah, and Mr. Brian Bills never did send me the e-mail he had premised. But does that surprise anyone?
When PMI sold me their course they assured me if I couldn't make the monthly payment to let them know. They would happily check to cut me a check to pay that month's Visa payment. In fact even my instructor confirmed this to me. When the month came up and I didn't have the funds I let them know.
Sure enough I received a check for the sum of $600. But there was also a NEW contract for me to sign stating if I accepted the check this canceled their existing contract with me and they no longer owed me anything, not even training.
I called the man who sold me the contract telling him how I couldn't sign such a contract. He laughed and assured me that all I had to do is to write a short note at the end of the form saying how the acceptance of the check did NOT cancel out our contract. Once they received it they would promptly sign and return a copy to me. Well, I never received that one either.
Stores Online and PMI Training are poison ivy big time, and no amount of lotion will take away the sting.
