I called Advantage premium and insisted I talked with Carter. She replied I leave him a message. I said lady you have no idea, but I assure you, I will do everything possible to have you and your company prosecuted for what you are doing....
Ten days passed, I called Premium Advantage and asked to speak with Carter. she replied I will give him the message. I asked when will I receive my package. She replied it will be Fed X August 2 or 3. I said ok.

I said, I demand you to credit my account sir today. I have gain knowledge enough to realize you guys are scam artiest... I said yesterday I filed a compliant with Iowa's Attorney Generals office, and I am a very busy man and you guys are on the top of the list of priorities. He replied fine, will just play the tape to him, you agreed. I said, listen sir.
There was no conversation recorded between Carter's conversation that toke almost 35 minutes, but the second recording was stopped and started over again, perhaps this is your technique for re editing to your advantage....... I said I demand my money know. He replied you must send a letter requesting a refund... pause in our conversation, I said I have no address to file for refund, I said I make sure you and all involved with be prosecuted. pause in our conversation then he gave me the address which is posted above.
I called the number for voice mail set up. The recording asked for original 10 digit number, I thought no way, so I entered 1234567891. It took me through setup and finally the recording asked me if I needed help. I said yes. The recording played call customer service at 1-800-367-8006 or visit us at www.4UMservice.com. I thought wow same number as Aloho Catering Service.
I called the number again and a receive a different recording. Customer Service a representative will be with you shortly. A man came to phone I asked him the name of his company. He replied. Voice Express. I said do you know the company named Premium Advantage. He replied yes they are a marketing company we used as several others.

I gave him a short description of how I was scammed and I am very upset, I report that company to attorney generals office. I said I want to cancel any further transaction between know. He checked his records and seen my account was debited yesterday and I will give you a credit today. I said thank you, I also mention if you guys are together on this scam to bad, but if you are not this company Advantage Premium is going to do your company any justice, can you relate sir? he replied and said thank-you and I will pass this information down.
