I contacted the BBB via mail and phone calls. They said the contacted Jubilee and got a response and mailed me their response. BBB swiped their hands together like, "that's done".
I wrote letters to the Attorney General, the L.A. District Attorney, the L.A. Times, the State of California Dept. of Consumer Relations, City of Downey City Hall, and State of Calif. Governor Gray Davis. My concerns were passed and forwarded to other "divisions".
Not only did I lose money to Jubilee, but I lost time from work, time from family, and peace of mind. I was so involved and obsessed with "getting" John Gustavsen, President of Jubilee, for what he did to me that everything else was put on the back burner.
I felt good about the letters, phone calls, e'mails that I was sending out, felt like I was doing something to help stop this company from doing to others what it had done to me. Then I would get a response from who I contacted. L.A. Times ignored me, BBB seemed like as long as Jubilee answered them then Jubilee was not doing anything wrong, the D.A. phoned me and said he couldn't take civilian complaints, that comaplaints had to come through the police dept., Attorney General ignored me, the Governor forwarded my complaint to the Dept., of Consumer Affairs, they sent me a letter saying they would look into it. They phoned me a couple of weeks later asking if I had received a check from Jubilee, I told them that I had received a check but that it was only part of what was due me, she said that Jubilee said they sent me everything that was due me and that's all that she could do for me. These responses irritated me ever more.
I asked how Jubilee could continue to rip people off and nobody was doing anything about it?! I wrote long letters to John Gustavsen, one letter being 7 pages long, "John" wrote me one sentence back not answering any of my concerns. I hope the FTC nails him and nails him good. They need to take him out of his $606,000.00 home he's living in on my money and yours.
Also, Heidi wrote her Rip-off Report and mentioned a class action lawsuit. I would be interested in hearing more on this.
