I was contacted by mail with a brochure about making money with an online business (the brochure did not say who was presenting the seminar). On March 17, 2004 I attended the seminar at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites(Marietta,Ga.) and charged a Usight Website for $99.00 on my authorized user(the account is in a friend's name)visa account. They prepared an account setup & activation in which they were to charge $30.00 a month for hosting after $30.00 days from the date of purchase. I was then given a flyer with the days of the training class. I chose Saturday March 20, 2004-9:00 a.m at the same hotel location.
Sid Sperry was the trainer and his son Justin was the computer operator for the UBuilder website. I gave Sid $30.00 cash(he gave me receipt) for a one time search engine that he told us that we needed. Sid talked about the Usight Website, the Merchant
account, the Hosting, his online travel business; Extreme Adrenaline.com. He claimed that he and his son Justin had made lots of money with their online business. On that morning Sid told the training group that we needed more than one website and merchant account(if we had more than one business)or we could let family members or who ever we want to use them. I tried to sign up for more websites and merchant accounts but was
told that I couldn't if I was not going to use a credit card, or have cash. Sid told me to come back to the evening training which was held at the Marriott(Atlanta-Norcross)and bring at least $300.00 cash for the down payment on the additional websites and merchant accounts. I came back that evening and gave
his son Justin (who was now operating the table to pay for accounts-Sid' other son was operating the computer)$300.00 cash for 5 additional websites and 5 merchant accounts. I told him that I was not going to do a credit card monthly charge. Justin was authorized by Sid to do a payment plan in which I was to pay $150.00 a month (on a supposely $1,995 Platinum Package of
5 additional Wedsites and 5 Merchant accounts) with a $300.00 down payment. I had told Justin I would pay the monthly fee by m.o..He gave me a receipt for the cash down payment and the agreement.
However, on my way home I had a funny feeling about something wasn't quite right and so I found Usight on the rip-off-report about 61 entries. I immediately wrote a letter(this was Saturday night:3-20-04) to cancel according to their instructions on the receipts; within 3 business days. Monday morning I sent the worthless certificates (Websites&Merchant accounts) signed the back copies of the receipts (made copies of everything for myself)etc. and sent everything back certified mail with returned receipt. They received the package and returned the receipt(not signed but stamped with the word Usight).
I have tried calling Usight and have not been able to talk with anyone but a customer service rep. that wouldn't give me anybody extention number. I received Michael Evans 1-800-544-9459 number from the rip-off-report but he has not called me back (Evans is the customer service concierge manager). I have not heard from Usight about my cancellation and refund. A training coach name Mack did call me and I told him that I had cancelled everything. I beleive that I have been scamed. I and my friend have contacted visa about the $99.00 that was charged and we (the visa primary account holder and I) have sent them copies of some rip-off-reports pretaining to Usight and their Associates. Visa is doing a investigation. I will not giveup until I receive the $99.00 back to my friend's account(I am the auhorized user) and my $330.00.
