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

Dustin came to my door, telling me that he wanted to start a business, and that he needed to sell books or magazine subscriptions to get enough money for his business. I doubted, but I told him I would help him.  I selected a set of books, and gave him a check for $20.00 as down payment.  That was the end of that, finally a week ago they had the nerve to ask me for the balance of the books, another $40.00 plus shipping and handling, and that my balance was past due.  That I would not receive the books until I paid..of course, after reading your reports I will consider the $20.00 as a gift and never send the rest of the money..I have the papers in case it is needed to persecute this company.

Are you really this dumb???? You didn't mail in the balance, so you will get NOTHING! Do you get to go to McDonalds, order your food, only pay for PART of it, eat it, then pay the rest???? NO! You have to pay for your product before you get it don't you???? Try mailing in your balance, and I bet you get your subscriptions...

Are YOU serious, "Charles"?

AUTHOR: Dogma - (United States of America)

Where exactly did this lucrative business put you, "Charles"? Are you off starting your own business or attending college? You may wish to tell the "highly ethical" business that you work for that one of their sales representatives expressed that he waited for my husband to leave prior to knocking on my door, proceeded to take his belt off without expressing why, leading me to think the gentleman was attempting to show himself to me, before showing off his belt buckle, and finally attempted to enter my house to use my restroom, which I refused. It was very odd how he appeared out of nowhere with not a drop of sweat on his shirt on a 92 degree day even though he had be "walking for miles". You have to understand the skepticism when a person comes across shady and refuses to answer questions about where they are from, yet drill away at you to get you to purchase a subscription. I gave him $10 to leave and hope to never deal with this company again. Perhaps, if this is in fact a legitimate company, they should invest some of their money into teaching better social skills and sales tactics to their employees.

#3 UPDATE Employee

Are you Serious?

AUTHOR: Charles V.-I.C.S - (United States of America)

So Let me get this straight.....You ordered magazines/books You did The Partial with "Dustin" and then you didnt bother to mail in the rest, despite the fact the company sent you a verification card, requesting you send it in? if you DO NOT mail in the yellow copy you are given, You WILL NOT get anything, so By your actions their, you automatically denied yourself. why? because you read some ignorant persons report on here? HA! go type in microsoft, or burger king on here and see what you find. I mean I can understand a real problem like "I didnt get my magazine" which is either 2 or 3 things.
1. You didnt mail the yellow copy off
2. The office could not Read your Information on the Form or wasnt filled in Right
3. The Paticular person decided to take your cash.

however, scammers (People that just take your cash) are NOT tolerated here by any means.
This is a professional business, promoting professionalism and Positive youth with Goals and Dreams working hard for it, Instead of being like all the other... like asking mommy and daddy for a hand out, and being bums, or selling neg crap. We atleast Try. but i got to love the skepticism of it all.
