I think I've been ripped off. When they first called me to get into the business, they targeted me because I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom. This was the bait they used to hook me in. I asked if I can talk to my partner first to get his opinion, but they immediately said that I could join first and then talk to my husband. Reliable businesses should let you get the chance to look at things before making a decision but I figured it was a home business after all. That was dumb on my part. They provided three packages to me at 149 (silver) , 288 (gold) , or 477 (platinum). The guy suggested I take the 477 platinum so I would make more money. He asked if I would take it for $377 which is really nice and have the $100 go toward my commission. I didn't know any better so I okayed the 377. I figured that the price included the larger commission of $500 and the website building. When I joined, a website was built for me www.brooklynwebmall.com but I don't have the ability to tweak it as I wanted. I was referred to an 'advertising coach" to look at advertising programs I could use to jumpstart my business. Of course the packages were 2-4k.
I took the advertising cost of $1295 (after much pressure selling from their part) that would spread throughout a 12 month period. After a month or so, another advertising coach called me to see if I'd want pay per click advertising at about $.60/click and they'd guarantee me this price. I couldn't take it without consulting my partner. Of course I refused as I hadn't seen any money to break even my costs. After I told the guy that I didn't make any money, he told me to just let my current program run for the year to see how that goes. After 90+ days, I've only received a check that's less than $9 and that check was mailed after the first month but the consecutive months after, I did not see anything. I'm hoping to get my set up cost back because their terms said they'll refund it if you didn't make any money within the first 90 days. I wonder if they consider that measly check making money. I didn't cash the check because it wasn't worth it.
I've spent a total of $1672 to this company and nothing has come out of it.

They don't provide an address, website or email that you can check out and send complaints or letters to. They did add a spot in the "contact us" link that you can send a message to the customer service representative. I've sent them two messages with complaints and have not heard anything from them as of yet, not even a confirmation to my message with an explanation of why they would not refund my money. I'll wait a couple more days to see if there's any sort of response from them. If not, I'll call them.
Hopefully you don't fall into the same trap I've fallen into.
