In May, 2002, I attended a seminar/workshop that Storesonline promoted. There were several misleading and untruthful statements that were made by the Storesonline representatives during this seminar/workshop. The representatives boasted about how you didn't even need a computer or need any computer knowledge to have a successful business on line with them. They said they would help everyone every step of the way. This was not true.
Another point--How can anyone read and understand any of the policies or guarantees before making a purchase if they are not given this information before they purchase? We were not given any kind of packet of information regarding Storesonline policies, guarantee or contract until after we had purchased their product. They wanted the money up front.
During the seminar/workshop, the representatives never mentioned anything about a "no refund" policy. How can anyone know what kind of "scam" they are getting themselves into until it is too late. They purposely withheld important information so as to make sales to Storesonline's benefit. They preyed upon uniformed, average people to make their money.
We were also not informed about (PMI) Professional Marketing International. When Storesonline representatives discussed the purchasing of storefronts, we were told that it was a complete package deal. They forget to tell you that there will be additional money needed for marketing. An outright lie.
It was found that the State of Washington belief that Imergent, Inc, Storesonline, John J. Poelman, Brandon Lewis, Donald Danks, Charles Andrews, their agents and employees have violated the Business Opportunity FRAUD Act if Washington. It seems as though they have committed FRAUD in other states also, namely California.
I am a single person that does not make a lot of money, I had hoped that Storesonline would have helped me to earn more to make my life a little easier. Instead, they have "ripped me off" for approximately $12,000 and have made my life quite miserable as I will be paying for this with not even one penny in earnings from their "scam". I did everything the way that I was supposed to and got nothing in return other than a lot of headaches. I was even told verbally by Jim Tilton and Boyd Dennison from Storesonline that they guaranteed that I would make my money back within six months or they would refund my money. That has never happened. When I asked for a refund, I was told I could not do that. What happened to their guarantee?
I have written emails to Storesonline and Donald Danks, and the Director of Customer Relations at Imergent, Inc., requesting that all of my investment of $12,000 be refunded, due to the FRAUD that was committed by Storesonline. But to no avail, I have heard nothing from them.
It would be great if you could help me out with this. These companies and individuals should not be allowed to "rip off" any more people.
