VCSTORE is at it again? Rip-off Scam YCTVSOURCE - Tetranex
Recent reports, found on the Internet, allege that a duplicate company owned and operated by some of the same people who appeared on Video Computer Store infomercials, has started in New York State.
The new company is apparently selling the same computer systems under their own brand name in the same way as they did before on cable networks. Allegedly George Capell is a consultant and some of the former hosts are allegedly in front of and behind the camera. Allegedly, the company is "YCTVsource" which is selling a brand they call "Tetranex."
Even if this company has no ties to Video Computer Store, the legal wording or contracts should be examined before purchase. The wording appears overly in favor of the company and shields them in numerous areas. The hosts of the broadcast are listed on their web site at the following link: http://www.yctvsource.com/contact.htm
The Attorney General of Pennsylvania has filed two lawsuits against these companies and the man pictured to the left is also named. You can read the two press releases for yourself:
