Usight Ripoff, Taking advantage of the people wanting to supplement their income Orem Utah
I Received in the mail a notice for a Seminar for USight for August 27, 2003. They said it was free. The Seminar was at The Sheraton suites, 555 N.W. 62nd St. I am on a fixed income, and I needed a supplement for my income. This all sounded very good, for there are a lot of people making money on the internet.
They talked about having your own website, and being able to sell more webites. They said that with the website, you must have traffic, something to sell, and E-Commerce. You would need a Merchant Account, and a host. They said the overhead would be a little over 150.00 per month. They said if you bought the plan that, you would be submitted to 1500 Search Engines. The next day was the training, and I am not sure at which one I purchased all of this baloney.
Since I was all excited about this, I was roped into it. They presented a memory course which I purchased through auctioning. I I paid fifty dollars for that. Then they offered a utravel thing. They told us we could go on a trip. I bought that for 50.00. Then they told us we could get four of them for 20.00. Before we left they were one hundred for 40.00. They made it sound like they were going to be out of them if you did not get them at that time, and that time only.
I found they are worth no more than the cardboard they were printed on. I get better things every day from various travel places. They also indicated we could become an event manager, and stay in hotels, and take cruises and flights free. If you book 20 people to any destination the airline will give you 2 free tickets to the same destination.
They told us we should not put all our eggs in one basket so they roped us into vending machines. They said we would have access to distressed merchandise.
Then I was talked into buying a personal website for 299.00, then a one time search engine submission for 79.00. That was 398.00. Then we had to have a Merchant account, and we could activate that for 89.95. Sid Sperry gave us the name of his website that we could pull up, and that was an example of what we could have. The sight is www/extremeadrenalinerush.com. It was very impressive.
Then they said that 5 people out of the over hundred people would be selected to get special treatment, one on one. There was quite a shuffle of the people for them to select their five. I happened to be one of the suckers.
They also told us we could lease the websites and make more money by the client paying one time per month.
Then they presented a platinum package for 3,9995.00. This would entitle you to unlimited websites to sell, and unlimited merchant accounts. In order to do that I had to go into Bank America and draw out 2000.00 and Providian for 1, 995.00.
I was so desperate at that time, and they told us we would be making money in less than 1 week. I thought that was wonderful. It gets better.
The next day I get a call from some of their gurus, and they told me that I was selected for their special team, and they would work with me, and train me, and make sure that I would start making money. They wanted me to make a lot of money so I could present a wonderful testimony on how I made millions. I was still on cloud nine and had visions of grandeur. Chris Jensen called and told me I was selected to be on the special success team, but first they had to ask me questions to see if I was the one they wanted. They could not have very many in each area. He would interview me first, and then he would not tell the other person about me or his decision.
Next I was turned over to someone else for an interview. They said I would not know about my acceptance until the last interview. Steve Davidson told me to write a letter and send it to him stating what I expected usight to do for me, and then what I do for Usight. I sent that to him, and he never returned my letter, nor responded. His phone is 1-800-901-3794. They told me if I had not recovered my investment within 6 months I would get back my investment. and was roped into borrowing from Orchard Bank, another 1,895.00 and AA for 2,271.00.
I did everything they told me to to. I wrote the letters with the sample letter they said to send. I bought clicks. I went through the PMI Sessions of Marketing Training. They started out with a coach. I had two sessions with him, and he informed me that he had been promoted and would not be coaching me. He then gave me to another coach, and then I was given the third one. They said I would have 10 sessions. They Third Coach was a wonderful man, and was very congenial, but I was not given 10 sessions.
Since August 27, I have been waiting for just one hit on my site. I have not got even one. I was a Senior Citizen, and still am, but I was very vulnerable at that time. I am sure that many of the others attending the seminars are in the same condtion as I am in.
Sperry was the first Usight teacher, if you want to call him that. Then two others were presented. Each one telling you that you could not go wrong. Mark Varone was the first coach that lasted two sessions.
Kingi Brown, and Matthew Brown in cahoots with them as business tax attorneys.
They even had a lawyer for us to contact.
These people are out to take your money any way they can. It is a scam and they should be locked up for it.
