Scam company

AUTHOR: Hello Kitty - (USA)

This company is ran by a scam artist named Michael
B. Hughes. Mike is no doubt a complete rip off artist! DO NOT do
business with this company as you will be out about $12,000-$15,000 for
nothing but a stupid "key letter" that is no more than a bunch of
business's that dont even know Mike Hughes or BrandBuilder. You also
get a folder with actual stick people on it. You get a video of big fat
Mike referring to you like hes a real tech guy. You get emails from him
saying that hes knows your frustrated. You get promises of "zero" cost
joint ventures when they really cost you $1000-$1300 a piece! What a ripoff.
