I received an email from Ameripos about the prepaid card business. I responded to it and David Ross called me to tell me more about it. He seemed like a very nice person but at the time I didnt have any money and was waiting for some money that I was expecting. He sent me out a package telling me all about it.
It looked pretty good, and checking it out the beter business bureua rated them very high. Again, I was still hesitant till one night when I was in Las Vegas I saw their comercial. David Ross continued to call me telling me that they had alot of locatins, and needed me to get started or I would loose the opportunity. He explained that I should averge about 350 per week and in no time would have my money back. Again, I told him I didnt have any money but could come up with 1000 for a deposit til I could a) Get a loan or b) Depending on what my lawsuit would be. After talking to him many times I finally thought it would be a good idea.
He told me that 1) I would have my money back within the first year 2) He gave me three names of people to call and 2 business that I called and they were doing very well with it. One guy even told me that he made his money back in 3 months. 3) He told me I didnt have to get the locations that AmeriPOS, as I told him I had Lupus and had trouble getting around. He said all I had to do was go out and get them to sign the paperwork when they were installed.
Sounded easy enough. I mailed 1000.00 and he had me send it FED Express with his company number. I asked him to hold the check till I could get themoney in their. (They didnt, they put it in the bank that day - it didnt clear). I called him and told him that I would have to send another check because he put it in to early. The second check for 1000 was only a deposit of good faith so that I coudl decide how many terminals I wanted when I knew how much money I would get from the loan, or my settlement.
He said he wanted me to sign three different purchase orders the first on August 21,2003 for 35 terminals at 1875 ea totaling the amount of 65, 625 I was worried so he said for me to sign under the sellers name that would make it not legal. He then made out another Purchase Order for 25 Terminals at 1875.00 each for a total of 46,875. He asked me at that time to send a check in the amount of 26,875 this was October 10, 2003 He said he would hold this check and never cash i till I knew how much money I would be able yto work with.
Again, the agreement was signed under the Sellers name - whilch he said it would not be legal and once we knew how much I would get he would then make up a new purchase order. Finally I got my lawsuit settlement and was only able to pay 18,999.00 plus the 1000 I had already sent which came to 19,999 dated November 5, 2003. He told me that he would change the Purchase Order to only 10 terminals for now. I asked him to send them out to me so I coudl get started.
Please bear in mind this is November 5, 2003. Here it is July 9, 2004, all those locations that were waiting for me to pay for the terminals so they could send them out were bogus. Finally in March exactly four months later my terminals arrived after 100 phone calls to them. I waited and waited for locations- I sent a certified letter back to them, Fed X allthe terminals back to them and Demanded my money back.
Rick Nye called the so called owner/president of the company and said they had 3 new terminals going out keep in mind it is now June, on June 9 their were 3 locations added to my website - but guess what NONE OF THEM EVER GOT A TERMINAL - They also are mad because they were sold somehting they never got. IT IS almost one year in August since this night mare started. No terminals, No locatins and I was told by David Ross their were locatins and I woudl start receivng money withinmy first 30 days on the 15th of the next month. All lies and that 20,000 was all the money I had to my name.
This company scanned me, ripped me off, lied and never came through. I have filed with the Fed Goverment, I am filing a police report for a scan job, and I plan on taking this to National TV. The names of the people involved in this company are Rick Nye who is the president - and now I have found out that their are several otheres involved such as Steven Mishkin, Alberto Ferrera, Harris Cohen.
The Fed Gov I found out has known about this since 2002, with 26 complaints that were filed about same time. I also have alist of 26 peole that have been scanned the same way. This is the biggest rip off I have ever seen and I plan on going all the way with it. Do Not Do Business with this company and if you check their names out you will find they are already opening up another scan.
