I talked to him on the phone for a long time before investing, seemed all good. He promised a business plan and training. Invested $1500.00 for a web store, advertising materials and "training". His "training" was one sheet of paper telling me to go hire other people to sell towels for me and take a commission.
I ordered postcards from him which turned out to be snapshots of towels on the shelves a cheesy looking store somewhere. Hideous- looking. I ordered a $100.00 sample box from his supplier, which was made up of the lowest quality products you have ever seen. Towels so thin you could see through them!
The website never worked, and his support guy did not return my calls for 3 months, nor did he. Once I demanded a refund via email and he informed me that his web guy had a new address and try again...and said he tried the site and it was fine. It wasn't.
I had to pay for a company to take credit cards online and they were billing me like crazy and no money was coming in because the site DID NOT WORK!!!! As soon as he got my money his "support" ended immediately and he was all about trying to get me to order more materials. I continued to demand a refund and he got all defensive, and stopped returning my calls and emails. He has his rap down and he just repeats it over and over, just like he did here.
Howard, you owe us our money back. If you have so many success stories. WHERE ARE THEY Name ONE, get ONE of your happy students to write you a glowing reccomendation. I will report you to EVERY agency in this country until I get my money back. I will NEVER STOP. If you are not a crook then PAY US BACK. That's what honorable business people do.
If Gary and I are truly the ONLY two that have had a bad experience with you , I'd think it would be worth it to you to clear your company's name. I won't hold my breath. But you aren't going to get away with it, I assure you.
