The bad part about this company is the charges! You "own" your own company - they are "giving" you a website. Gee - $40 a month for a website that NO ONE can get into UNLESS THEY HAVE A GIFT CARD!! Gee - what good is that if they have NO GIFT CARD!! People CANNOT get into your website to buy your merchandise - UNLESS THEY HAVE A GIFTCARD!! They can even let you have a site with ALL of your merchandise (a big catalog with gorgeous stuff in it) for a mere $600!!! My sorry excuse of a coach Nia stated I could have 2 parties a week in my home. Yeah, my pit bulls would love that!! Delivery 2 times a week!! Haha - only kidding about delivery. Now gee - a tupperware salesperson can't even have 2 parties a week in their own home. People AVOID you after that!!! COME ON!!!
Has anyone noticed the "the only authorized company to set up the SMC websites" are at the SAME ADDRESS as SMC Corporation is at? Hummmmm, more money they make off of schmoes like me. They are literally LYING and DECEIVING people into thinking they are 2 different companies, when they are actually one. Seems like shady practices to me. Then your so called "coach" and I use the word loosely, I had Nia, decides I am being hostile when I tell her I can't afford to give them $2,000 - $3,000 to start a business that I was supposed to own when I paid the money up front. And guess what? NO $100 gift certificate as promised!! THEN the member services tells me they can let me have it - but I have to use it RIGHT THEN! Not good for the "full coaching period" as stated in the paperwork.
Gee, am I wrong here, or is the way they make all of their money off of us idiots who actually think this would work. I knew I would have to pay for merchandise up front to take out and sell - I understood that - but unless you have a few thousand dollars to hand over to their 2 companies - you are screwed!!!
I am calling corporate Monday - not that it would do any good - but bring up their deceptive practices. Maybe I will file my own lawsuit for their deceptive business practices. I am a Paralegal in a small southern town. It would hit the media like crazy!! "Paralegal files lawsuit against big corporate ripoff company SMC - Specialty Merchandising Corp. for deceptive practices!" I wouldn't need an attorney. Maybe I will file a lawsuit - unless their is an attorney with the kahauna's out there wanting media attention with a class action lawsuit for something other than "prescription drugs gone wrong". We would win AND EXPOSE them for the rip offs they truly are! Deceptive practices are morally wrong, and somewhere, and I will find it - legally wrong.
