SEO Reputation Management at its best!

This company changes its name frequently because of a poor consumer record. It was formerly known as UCCTotalHome.

There are many online reports on both companies regarding their poor consumer record. Look up "direct buy scam" on any search engine.

Since you are reading this you probably don't know much about how a company like this does business.

A company with a dubious product or service for sale (like this one) will attempt to use coercive persuasion to make you buy. This may be a 'fear of loss' technique (you will not be able to tour the showroom and check prices again for 7 years if you don't sign-up today) or 'power close' techniques to 'intimidate' you into buying. Remember, they have nothing to lose ... they will not see you again if you don't buy 'today' so they are liable to try anything that might 'close the sale' with your personality type.

Time share is sold this way and some health club memberships because so many people drop out and don't use their memberships. They are really just selling 'time' to use their facility ... they have virtually no additional expenses when you join.

The contract, which no attorney would ever let you sign, is so one sided that it is patently fraudulent, in my opinion. But since you cannot take it home to review it ... most people who do join based on hype and inaccurate claims, find themselves holding a document that gives them virtually nothing for their money.

They are selling the equivalent of a SAMS CLUB membership for thousands!

Personally, I can find better deals than SAMS normally on the internet (that deliver to my home, not a warehouse) so DirectBuy selling for thousands is a total RipOff!

You are paying for a 'buying club' that gives almost no service, has prices that can be beat by almost any discount retailer. They hide behind a clever contract that gives you no rights to contest anything.

AVOID! If it were a good, decent company they would be happy to let you try it for a month for free and then pay monthly.

But if they did that no one would pay their price.

Take The Blank Contract And Walk

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

When you are presented with a contract to sign you most certainly can fold it up, put it in your pocket and leave the premises. The contract has legally been placed in your posession. You are free to sign it then and there or take it home for your attorney to review.

You can always flush out the desperate organizations when they say the contract cannot leave the office. Hmmmm........then how can it leave after it's been signed?? If they threaten you when you try to leave with it just play it through. They won't call the police since they have no legal footing at all.

Desperate companies take desperate measures. Ignore them.
