Kudos Communications Health and Wealth Magazine BAD LIST, BROKEN VERBAL PROMISES & NO INTEGRITY Newport, Internet

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

I own a home based business and am successful.  I contacted Health and Wealth Magazine to look into advertising.  Charles Murray talked me into a "new, current one time only" email list of other marketers whose company is in trouble.  I paid A LOT-- $3600 US--for only 6000 names.  He made verbal promises as to the response rate of at least 10%, with networks.  IT WAS JUNK.  The first 2000 had a 46% return rate; I complained and wanted to back out of the deal (I had only paid 1/2).  He sent 2000 more names; of these, over 50% were names I ALREADY HAD.  He then sent me 200 phone numbers--and told me they were old.  I sent another 2000 names and these had a return rate of almost 52%.   I had ZERO response to the mailings. 

HE THEN PROMISED I WOULD NOT BE CHARGED THE SECOND HALF OF  THE PAYMENT.  I just finished with my dispute and Mike Shrubshall insists I owe according to the contract I signed.  True; but i was told the contract would not be enforced by Charles, the other owner. 

THEY LIED AND THEY HAD ABSOLUTE JUNK.  They have zero integrity.  They give the home based business world a bad name.
