I was contacted by Lauren Evans with USA Card Services after answering a ad from a Parents magazine for working at home opportunities. He stated that he had a great opportunity for a very limited time. He told me it was for starting a web site store that they would talk me thru the set up and get me on the top page of the major search engines within a few days after launching my site.
This was on 4/26/06. He did the credit check and approved me then I interviewed with some man to see if I was right for the "job" I was approved. I then was presented with all the info on the set up and not given a chance to think it thru. They played on my desire to work from home while raising my small children. I agreed against my better judgement.
I was told that I would receive a lap top computer ready for business. I already had a home computer plus a lap top, but "the lap top comes with the opportunity". I then was faxed a lease and rushed thru the initials and signing without a chance to really review it. I know it is my fault for not insisting on a chance to review and think, but they gauranteed a great business, but did not gaurantee the income. I then was locked into a 48mo non cancellable lease thru A-1 Leasing Co.
I received my stuff and started to set up a web store. I did not receive the assistance that they promised. It took them months to get everything set up to launch my site even after me contacting them repeatedly and threating them if they did not get my site launched.
It was finally launched in late August. I was never on the search engines unless I specifically typed in my web site name. In 6 mo only had 3 sales. It cost me $130.09/mo to A-1 Leasing and another $firstname.lastname@example.org to the Ipayment and authorize.net for credit card processing. I closed my web store on Oct. 31, 2006 and closed my business account.
Good Luck with your battles!
