This was a letter I recieved Aug 8th ,2001. I ordered an information package that took forever to recieve. Tiran Zaken expressed how sorry he was for the delay. They were relocating from New York to California . Unfortunately, my order came in when the operation and equipment were on the road, packed in trucks. I figured it was just a mailing error or something.
I was told in the the information package how important it was to have stationary and business cards. I got out my check book and wrote a check for $169.00 dated Sept 5th,2001. It seemed like several months went by and I hadn't recieved anything nor had my check cleared the bank. I remember calling and speaking with someone about my order. when I called she had no record of my order. I figured that maybe my check was lost!!! I placed another order over the phone and mailed another check in the amount of $169. 00 I called my bank and said I wanted to cancel the previous check. The new check was cashed (they stamped it pay to the order of bank of america chatworth, ca )
July 27th,2002 I signed the $250 money back guarantee since I hadn't made any money in almost 1year!!!!! On Aug 8th, 2002 I recieved a letter from Tiran Zaken stating that my check drawn on union planters bank in the amount of $169, had been returned to them with an indication to the effect that there were insufficient funds. I called my bank immediatley and had them fax a copy of my check that they deposited. Then I called 818-998-6697 I spoke with a lady who said that it was illegal for me to stop payment on a check if I recieved my purchase. I only stopped payment because I never recieved my product. I did issue them another check and place a new order. They did cash it!!! So they have the 1st check of mine in the amount of 169.00 that they can deposit at any time even if I put a stop payment on that one check because of a time limit or something the bank said. Ever since then I've only left $1.04 in that account. I recently closed it.
I've lost hundreds of dollars and time spent with my family trying to make this business work! To top it off I was denied the 2 year money-back guarantee that they promised.
