I had invested a certain amount of funds to www.courtneyrharris.com to start up the advertising portion of this companies website. The contract stated, along with emails, that I would be granted 40% of this portion of the company for the term of the contract. After the contract was up, if I wanted to cash out I would receive my percentage of the business.
"... after the first year if
you are not pleased with the direction things are going you can cash out
your percentage. By then you would have surely made your investment back
several times but If for whatever reason you have not made your investment back
(which is highly unlikely) you would cash out by taking the
whatever the difference is between what you have received and what you are
About a month before the year contract was up, I wrote an email stating that I would be cashing out. Courtney then tried to sell me on a portion of his core business which he claimed was doing well. I turned the offer down. A day prior to the contract end date I had sent an email to discuss the collection of my funds only to an effort in return to sell me on the core business again. I declined and continued to write emails about my funds. Finally after a few emails I was told there was no money from the investment left and that we needed to work out a payment schedule in order to pay the funds back. I was disappointed at first, but then agreed to set a payment schedule. I have not heard back since July 16 2012 after I have sent numerous emails. Please do not do business with this company as this is how investors are treated, I'm sure customers are treated the like.
