I received a promotional letter from Randy Ehrlich back in January of 2008 concerning a business opportunity with Encore Society/Principle Based Business. And joined the Encore Society in February 2008.
The opportunity required for people to select from 4 'money-making opportunities', either one, or some, or all. Once the participant was aboard the program, Mr. Ehrlich was paid a monthly advertising fee to market our programs for us, and make sales for us.
When I joined the program I signed up with a lifetime membership with Global Resorts Network (GRN), and iLearning Global (ILG). Back then a lifetime membership with GRN was costing about $3,200. You either had a choice to join a 1-year plan for around $1,500, and continue to renew it each year, or you bought a lifetime membership.
ILG was a cost of $80.00, plus $80.00 each month to retain the membership. I was also required to make a payment of $499.00 each month for my advertising that Mr. Ehrlich was supposed to do for me.
I was with ES/PBB/Mr. Ehrlich for a total of 3-months before leaving the program all together. The main reason for my leaving was that I received an email from his Director of Marketing at the time that no advertsing was done for me during the 3-months I was with ES, and that he had left ES due to those reasons.
I spent $3,200 to join GRN; plus $80.00 for ILG, with another $80.00 for two months ($160.00); and 3 months of advertising fees at $499.00 each ($1497.00). For a total of $4,937.00.
I was first reluctant to join any program but Mr. Ehrlich continued to encourage me, kept saying 'the time to enter is now. You will make a lot of money in just a short while. We have lots of people coming aboard now, since people are using their Income Tax returns to get started.' He also suggested that maxing out a credit card to help off-set the payments was a good idea, since I would be able to pay it off within my first month once I made 1 or 2 sales with a GRN account.
I maxed out one credit card (of $2,800) and paid the rest with my debit card, since I had just cashed a check from a 401K plan I turned in, and I had an Income Tax Return that arrived.
By the time May 2008 came around I had tapped out my accounts. I stopped all relations with Mr. Ehrlich and Encore Society and also requested for a return of my investment since he had never upheld his end of the contract. I never received a reply.
Mr. Randy Ehrlich is a scammer, plain, simple. Never do business with this man. As far as I am concerned Mr. Randy Ehrlich stills owes me $4,937.00.
