The Results Group scammed me!!!! I was first contacted by Susan Slater who told me I could start my own internet business for $299 that would cover setting up the webpage and business expense. I was then contacted by Brandon (gave no last name but was supposedly only going to verify the transaction) he then told me my webpage would not make any money if I did not add the voice enhancements to it for an additional amount that he was supposedly cutting me slack on by giving it to me for his price. This all came to a total of $149, per site for a grand total of $448.
They both stated that they only had two sites available at the time one for AMAZON.COM and the other for a gambling site Windowscasino.com. They explained that they had just ran out of EBAY sites, but they would be getting more and that I would get the third company within a month or so. I was then told I would make $400 a week by doing this, but if I wanted to make more money, I could purchase individual ads ranging from $1-$10.
They both insisted that I could cancel if I was not satisfied during this six month trial.
The next day I was contacted by my advertising consultant, Rebecca Anderson, who told me the only way to make money was to purchase their Platinum ad package, where they would send out 30,000 ads to people who specifically requested information about my types of companies. The Platinum package for 30,000 contacts was $3900 I asked if there were any others and she stated that there were not, and that this was the best way to be aggressive with the business and to be guaranteed to make money.
She guaranteed me to receive $5000/wk if I did this, and up to $10,000/wk if I continued to write and post my own free ads. (She told me that I had misunderstood both Susan and Brandon when they said that ads could be bought for $1-$10, that only meant that this package deal averaged out to that.) She smooth talked me out of $1500 instead of the original $3900 saying that I really should do it because it was at least half of the Platinum package, all the while telling me that I was missing out on a good thing and that I was about to shoot myself in the foot and that I was not giving myself a fair chance at the business She also stated that instead of having the 30,000 contact that all she could guarantee me was 15,000 for both stores, but that I could come back and purchase the other half of the platinum package after I had made the money.
Being a new mother who could not afford day care, and dreaded the thought of leaving her son with anyone anyways, I needed some type of way that I could work from home.
I looked at all the information that they sent to me which consisted of a certificate (which did not even look remotely authentic I could have printed the same thing out and payed a lot less for it) A letter welcoming me and telling me to get excited over this because when I make money they make money (I haven't seen any money yet except for that which I paid out to them).
I know I should have been skeptical from the beginning but unfortunately I was not. I called the customer service number and spoke with Erica, I told her that I wanted to cancel, when she asked me why I told her that I was now skeptical about the whole situation and that I didn't like it at all and I just wanted my money back. She placed me on hold and a man by the name of Roy Smith came on the line and told me that I could not cancel until six months had passed and I hadn't seen any money from the sites. I told him that I just wanted to get my money back and he stated that he cannot do that because these so called websites had already been set up. (What the difference between now and six months the sites will still be setup at that time also). He then told me that I would need to contact them after the six months had passed and hung up the phone.
I have left numerous messages for Roy Smith, and Rebecca Anderson or her supervisor to contact me and they have not. If I DO NOT hear from them and get this settled today I will be contacting the FBI, Attorney General, FTC, BBB, my attorney, and all the media I can get in contact with. I will be contacting my bank to reverse the charges, and I hope that this NEVER EVER happens to anyone again. I think that they should be ashamed of themselves and that they should be SHUT DOWN! I will never make this kind of mistake again I can assure you of that.
