I deposited a total of $5500 with Brio Mood with
all monies clearly stated to be refundable (both verbally and in writing) if a formal contractual agreement was not reached within 21 days. After further thought and research, i opted out of the business and requested my money back in late May of 2005.
Nearly 2 years later i am still owed a huge portion of the original money i deposited. In the summer of 2005 I was told several times I would have my money by
specific dates set by Brion himself but he continually ignored his own deadlines. He basically avoided me for months. I then began to contact attorneys and filed complaints with the Better Business Bureau, as well as with the Attorney General in Ohio and California, and the Department of Corporations.
By early 2006, Brion had been run out of California and tried to restart his business in Myrtle Beach, SC. The Ohio Attorney General began to get involved and spoke with Brion several times where he then proceeded to lie to both them and myself claiming he was going to pay me back. I filed a complaint with the BBB in South Carolina and it must have disrupted his plans because he finally began to contact me again. He gave me a sob story with several excuses and promised again to repay me.
In February of 2006 he sent out a bogus release of territory form which he claimed he needed to do in order to repay me, and stating that he owed me the $5500. In the summer of 2006, he sent out a promissory note stating that he was going to repay me in payments of a minimum of $1000 each month until i was paid off. Late payments were to be subject to interest charges and attorney fees i would incur attempting to get my money back were aslo to be included.
Finally in the fall of 2006 i recieved a payment of $500. This already violated the agreement but I was happy to get some money so I tried to be patient. I recieved a few more $500 payments but each was late. I was then told on more than one occasion that he had been approved for more financing, or that he had a new bottle for his busuiness, or another excuse...and that he was going to pay me in full on a certain date. These turned out to be more lies.
I recieved a payment in January of 2007 and then when the time for the next payment came I told him
beforehanbd it was due. He said it would be sent and it was not. Then he even claimed a payment was sent out but never provided me a tracking #....because it wasnt sent. Next he again claimed he would pay me the full amount again but lied. I have tried to be patient but after 2 years of his lies I have had enough.
I have learned of at least 2 other victims of this fraudulent company. I have spoken with people in New Mexico and Oklahoma who have had similar experiences with Brion/Mood and he owes them a total of around $40000. Complaints have been filed with the FTC and FBI and Brion/Mood have actually been ordered to cease and desist business in the state of Oklahoma.
Nearly 2 years after all his big claims on what this business could do, you still cant even purchase the product he was trying to get me and others involved with. I am seeking to regain my money and/or put and end the the fraudulent business practices of this company and Brion Ware.
