I was also conned into handing money over to World Marketing Systems, I received a response call to an inquiry into earning money from home, after receiving an email.
Toni Taber, a sweet sounding lady called first, she made it all sound so wonderful. I decided to give it a go and through my Credit Card gave them US$188.00 a once only payment.
She told me that I would be receive a call from my Coach Larry Foster, in a few days, what she didn't tell me was, that he wasn't interested in coaching me, he fast talked me into upgrading to Gold, and that it would only cost me another US$495.00, I knew I couldn't afford this and told him I was concerned about laying out the cash.
He was so good at talking he convinced me I would make that money plus more back in 90 days or less, fool that I was I believed him at first.
But I kept getting this uneasy feeling in my gut, and started investigating about the company online. Finding many a scam report on them.
I then spent days trying to contact them on the phone numbers given, as far as I can work out they are all false. I managed to finally get through via email and after resending my findings to them, was contacted by a Brian Roybal. He tried to assure me of the legitimacy of the company, and that I would be earning money soon. I didn't and don't believe that anymore.
I have now lodged a complaint with the FBI, as well as the Australian Consumer and Business Affairs, The Bad Business Bureau, The Better Business Bureau, and a few others.
I have emailed Brian Roybal this morning, 26th June, 2007 to inform him of my reports to the above institutions on World Marketing Systems, letting him know I have also given them all the names I know of that work for them.
I have demanded a full refund of all monies sent, and to be made out directly to me and to be Airmailed before the 30th June, 2007.
I will let you know if I have any response back from him.
Thank you and be ever alert from now on.
