I was contacted about a work from home opportunity and convinced they were a legit company in good standings with the BBB. I was told I had to pay $219 for a business LLC and EIN in order to do business with them. My job was to submit leads which I would make commission off of in addition to residual income from the businesses that decide to switch to their merchant.
I was given two websites ( one for debt couseling, business services, marketing services, and job opportunities and the second for merchant processing services). I was to submit leads onto the appropriate website for this company to contact and inform the lead of their service. Supposedly they are associated with Visa, MasterCard, and American Express which was a conflict of interest for them so they needed me to refer leads to them so they could contact the individual/business. I was also given a back office website where I could track my entries as well as the status of each entry to calculate my commission.
I signed up on 8/7/2012 and entered TONS of people I knew that wanted to switch companies into my back office for leads. The telemarketer said I would get $10 for each good lead regardless of if they sign up. That was a lie. I was then contact by my business consultant, Tom Gilbreath, who is in charge of suggesting marketing and guaranteed income programs to get my business rolling. He was always aggressively persuasive about the guaranteed income program. He told me if I pay $2500 it guarantees X-amount of companies that I would draw residual income from. Luckily I told him I couldn't put that much into a company for marketing. A few days later he called back telling me I could do a guaranteed leads program for $750, which gave me 200 leads and out of those I am guaranteed 20 companies to make income off of. I was also to receive a e-business card/commercial with my specific business website so I could get commission off each sale from my website.
I was sent several documents to sign via Us Doc Assist. Tom told me to sign them as quick as possible so he could send my file out to be complete in order to get my income as soon as possible. I did this and received my leads and e-business card/commercial DVD in the mail two weeks later. What I received was 200 companies with addresses, none of them had a contact name, some didn't even have an address, which was required for a good lead. My DVD commercial displayed my personal contact information instead of my business name/information and my specific business URL to generate commission was incorrect. I tried contacting them several times and couldn't get an answer. If I did get an answer, I was hung up on when explaining my situation.
After looking back at the documents Tom Gilbreath rushed me through, he had me sign a confirmation that I had received my purchase and was satisfied with it ON THE DAY I SIGNED UP. All this was in fine print where they could mislead you. Then they sent my bogus marketing materials that all had incorrect information. I have learned there is no "work from home" business that you sign up for to make millions like they say.
These people take your money and run!!!! Please don't fall for it, they are very clever and persuasive in ensuring you they aren't a scam and your are guaranteed to make over $3000 per month. They explain so well that it seems like a legit work from home job but from the other reports I read, I'm not the only one they scammed.
