Global Pro Systems Shanna Averill of Grangeville, Idaho is the person I spoke with representing the company. Deceitful and Fradulent. Charged $9.95 for information that could easily have been given by phone or internet. Scottsdale Arizona
I found this online while searching for a legitimate work at home business. The first lie was that the information was free. Of course, when I brought that to the attention of Shanna Arville (the person I spoke with by phone and email) she said the $9.95 was just for the FedEx. She called me right after I paid online and played a recorded message describing the business. (You don't even need the package if they'd let you hear that to start with.) After listening for a while, it became apparrent to me that this was just another scam of them signing you up to do exactly what they're doing, which is "selling the scam". She claimed this is a wonderful product (health and wellness related, called Vemma). It may be good, but I'm always suspect when they are only pushing the business and the products seem an after thought! She claims Dr. Oz is one of the people promoting the company. Global Pro Systems is just the company who handles the business aspects apparrently if I understand correctly. The clincher is that you have to sign up with them for auto-shipment of the products monthly.
Anyway, I knew immediately I didn't want in on this and told her I wasn't interested. I'd tried other similar companies years ago and ended up spending more than I ever made. She then sent me an email stating that in order not to be charged an additional $39.95, I'd need to return the package I'd receive in a few days within a 14 day time frame. (First time I'm hearing of this!) So, I made a point to return the package two days after I received it, making sure (I thought) not to be charged anymore. I paid another $5.60 at the post office and received a receipt with a tracking number and it stated the date of "scheduled delivery" for two days later. I went online on that day to be sure the package had been received and found that it had. I felt good that it was taken care of, but to my surprise and horror, a week later, a charge for the $39.95 showed up on my account! I called Shanna and she declared she had no idea what happened but would contact the office and have them issue me a refund if my package had been received by them. When I talked to her next, she said they told her my package had "just arrived back that day, to which I replied they were liars and I could prove it. Long story short, I called my bank about it and had to cancel my bank debit card and dispute the charge pending further investigation. I now have to go to the bank to sign papers and get a new card to replace the one I had. Just wish I'd looked up this company before getting involved. My thought was that $9.95 wasn't too much to lose to find out about a business opportunity. Unfortunately, it doesn't end there. I'll feel fortunate if I get back the $39.95 and can put the whole matter behind me. I won't make this mistake again and hope reading this will help someone else not to make a similar mistake. I usually look companies up online but neglected to do that this time to my regret and chagrin! I saw several others on this site who had similar stories about this same company
