Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Back in June of 2005 my husband and I had 2 guys come to our door selling magazines. We decided that we would both buy one magazine and they told us it would be 90-120 to start receiving them. In December we still had not received anything so I tried to call the company. No one ever answered. Someone finally answered and I told her my problem and she said it was probably that my address was wrong and she would fix it. I still never received anything.

So last week, January 24, 2006 I decided to do some research on the company, since no one will ever answer the phone. It turns out that I found multiple complaints about the same thing. I found a number for a man named Brad Tyus. I called him and he said that he would figure out what the problem is and fix it and call me back. He never did so I called him and he had plenty of excuses like he had a meeting come up, he was at someones house.
Well I found the number of a Jason ( and he told me that Threedom Sales was not his company but he would give me the number of the office manager. Her name is Keitha and she is the office manager. I told her that I just wanted my money back and that was Friday and today I received my check so that is the number to call.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Maybe I will finally get my money back

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

I bought magazines from this threedom sales back in may 5, 2005. I have been trying since sept of the same year to get my money back, because like all of you I never received my purchase. After reading the rip off report I came in contact with Keitha Carson. She promised me my refund back in March 2006. I never received it. I just called the nuimber for Jason and was told to call: 903-429-3300. I talked to Nichole who informed me that Keitha hasn't worked there since January. So when she was promising me money she wasn't even an employee. Nichole said I will have my money in 7-10 days. I will let everyone know if I actually received it.

#2 Consumer Comment


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

To date I have not found any direct evidence that Choan is still involved with crew activites, but his former wife, another winner, named Kay Hillery is still very much in control of many young salespeople to this day.These itinerate employers must be attacked on all available legal fronts-she, as well as EVERY other magmgr, owes many, many, thousands of dollars of backpay to the young kids who line their pockets with cash gleaned from the porches of an unsuspecting public. It is always amusing to me to hear how these magmrs purport to have no idea what the other mgrs are up to...when in fact they spend their entire day on the phone with one another, discussing cash intake, territory issues, and other items of business relating to effectively ripping folks off. I still challenge anyone of them to provide documentation that even one person has left their employ and recieved pay at a later date.It simply cannot be done.Getabunch.

More nonsense

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

Here is a brief on Choan. There is a picture of him and his sentence to the state pen:

He was running the crew. ... He essentially is responsible for recruiting them, for employing them, for paying them, and also for putting Jeremy Holmes in the driver's seat," Schultz said. "He directed that Jeremy Holmes drive."

But Boyle countered that Lane does not own a majority of the stock in YES and that the issue of ownership is unclear.

Most of the stock is owned by Karleen Hillery, also known as Kay. She is Lane's former wife and owns Subscriptions Plus, which processes the subscriptions sold door to door by YES crews.

The state does not have evidence that rises to the level of probable cause that indicates another owner or that someone else could be charged, Hanrahan said after the hearing.

Interesting Stuff

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


Is Karleen Spruiel aka Karleen Humphries aka Karlene Pierce aka Karleen Lane aka Karleen Hillery aka Kay Hillery aka Kay Pierce, the ring leader ex-wife of Choan Lane?

I started an investigation of my own today and it is very interesting. I think the story that comes out of this will entertain. At the moment Robert Spruiel is listed as the member of the LLC in Arizona. She doesn't appear. Maybe because there is a Federal Tax lien for $213,575.00 listed against her. Every time she changes names the IRS changes the lien.

#5 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Keitha.... developed a conscience

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

Let me just begin by letting you know that if my submissions r.e. the mag business makes your day a little more difficult,that is more than ok with me.By the respond as an owner, when those of us familiar with who you are and what you purport to do know that you are not in fact an owner at all. As to my affiliation with the business, lets just say I was in it far too long and thankfully developed a conscience. I have the financial security these days to be in a position to enlighten consumers on this abhorrent industry and will continue to utilize my free time to do just that. On behalf of the 100s of people looking for their money or scripts, I think its a safe guess they would like you to address their issues and perhaps less time responding to me. For the record-you may be having "difficulties" in your quest to make things right with everybody out there...but lets tell folks the TRUTH, whether your website is up or down, your phone number is good or bad, or even if the magcrews do not have a legit clearinghouse contract...those magmgrs WILL have the kids on the doorsteps tomorrow morning. You know it and I know it.Getabunch.

#6 REBUTTAL Owner of company


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


I assume you worked for "Integrity Sales", but regardless of the fact we made several critical errors in the process of running E.A.A., we are doing everything that we can to clean up our name. You are repsonding to every post regarding E.A.A. and its affiliates, and Intergrity Sales is not one of them. You only make it harder for us to make customers happy by posting negative information regarding the industry as a whole. You identify yourself as an exemployee, but I don't recognize your name. E.A.A. as officially closed but is still doing whatever it takes until America doesn't feel like we are a scam. Since the past cant be changed, that is all we can do. I would appreciated if you didn't make things harder than they already are. If you or any customer wishes to contact me my email address is My response may not be immediate but I will respond. Thank you.

DISSOLVE.. MAYBE... GO AWAY.. NEVER! ex-wife, owner of Integrity sales is still stealing all across Americas under the guise of still yet another punk husband

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

These magcrews and cashclearing houses move alot, I know, but the money the mgrs steal from the public and kids who walk territory is far too lucrative to give up.If anyone has info on whereabouts of a scumbag named Choan Lane-please post, he must never be allowed to work around young people again.

He is the same vermin who left 7 young people behind who were killed in a van crash,and continued to work his crew business as usual .His ex-wife, owner of Integrity sales{laughable name}is still stealing all across Americas under the guise of still yet another punk husband.Gotta STOP buying mags on the doorsteps folks.

Did The REfund Check Clear?

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

I too was ripped off by EAA. I spoke with Keitha Carson today- 2-7-06 and she said the company was being dissolved and my refund would be processed in a couple of days.

Did your check clear the bank? I don't like the fact that the company is being dissolved.
