I ordered a set of DVDs and book on floral design from Mabel White Home Living corporation. It was almost sixty dollars in charges and I was charged right away. The product never arrived. My e-mails was nver answered and the only number I was able to get for the company has only an answering machine.

I have read another report that describes the same type of problem with the company, where a costumer was billed and never receid his product. I understand that the woman behind this scam is named Deborah Dolen. My understanding is that they charge unsuspecting costumers for produts that do not exist.

I would like to see a class action suit against this woman. I have not yet given up on getting my money back.

CAUTION!!! Mable White Home Living IS Deborah R. Dolen, FELON!

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

WOW, That's pretty bold smack-talk from someone who has the kind of take advantage of everyone with a pulse' history this woman with the over-inflated-ego has! No, the FTC was not worried about any book, and anyone can see for themselves by going the to FTC's website and doing a search for Deborah Dolen. She dares to insult our intelligence with such an excuse! This woman has a history that she does not want to face, but her denial does NOT make her any sort of victim.

Maybe she was a hot shot somebody' in prison, but changing her name from Deborah Dolen to do business as MABEL WHITE HOME LIVING doesn't erase her history, and a history like hers gives her NO room to call anyone else a looser.

I don't think I'd ever believe one word this ex-convict; Deborah Dolen (DBA Mabel White) has to say, because she seems to have a total lack moral fiber and an inability to see herself for what she really is! Also, Mabel White's posting about someone else, People like you who want a free ride (above post by Mabel White) makes no sense considering this woman's history. I suppose Mabel White's misapprehension that she is actually a somebody only proves that somebody is a little off their rocker! Mabel White / Deborah Dolen claims to have written 25 books, and this is her claim to fame. What a joke! They are pamphlets, and just about anyone with MS Word can author a pamphlet. Half of hers aren't even her own ideas! Talk about being on a power trip!

Settles it for me

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

I read through the links and many of them are legal documents on the federal trade commission's website. They are not "stories from some towelhead" but court documents on an official government website.

I think both the previous posters made their case against you. You were fined by the FTC and told to cease operations. Its all there in black and white.

Anyone reading this should read the above poster's links to the FTC's website and see for themselves that this Mabel White AKA Deborah Dolen is a con artist will rip you off.

You Are No Former Employee

AUTHOR: Mabel White - (U.S.A.)

You are not any former employee of mine, so your entire line of crap starts off with a lie. And you wish you had conversations with me regarding some at home thing. I do not even sell any work at home stuff-[or smoke] although I sure could if I wanted too. You are a looser and YEP I do know who you are. You should not be bringing God into it at all. You are hardly of God-and so imperfect you have to put other people down to make yourself feel powerful. That is ALL this is about. Your lack of power. And YEP I am a big author name-and you are not. Sorry. When you have wrriten 25 books-let me know. Even then I would not turn my head to hear about it.

Yep I have a felony from 22 years ago-6 in fact. None of them for theft. Can't you find something more recent than that? Oh, yes, news articles from year 2000 that were never true and written by two towel heads from India-Anita Kumar and her Buddy at FTC-referring to the 1987 episode. They never won SQUAT either-so do you plan to help them start winning something now? They will RUN and not know you. Pretend as you please. Apparently you need to persecute other people to have a good day. I will level you in court and make you Dust. Pixie Dust!

Funny you act so "afraid" of me yet taunt me every chance you can get. You picked the wrong be-ach to play with. If court don't work-I DO have a glue gun!

#10 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Deborah Dolen is fake Mabel White CONVICTED FELON! (Proof Enclosed!)

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

Found the following online after a REALLY bad experience with this company's owner who uses a fake name of Mabel White so that people don't know she's really Deborah Dolen and is a CONVICTED FELON. She talked up herself as if she was something "big" online when I talked to her by phone one day. I was interested in starting my own work at home business and she said she could help because she has helped thousands online throughout the past. Further into the phone call she started coughing really bad as if she was a really longtime smoker which was a big turn off. She ended up talking more about herself rather than the reason we were supposed to be talking and that was helping me through her supposed company Mabel White Home Living. When I pointed that out to her she went on a horrible attack of how I was not worthy of her helping me. In a nut-shell I realized this was a person that was not mentally stable in any form. She warned me how she now knew my name, address, phone and email and would be more than happy to ruin my name all over the internet and how her lawyers are Nascar driver's attorneys. That's why I filed this rebuttal to add my own awful experience. I'm sure my name will soon be all over the internet in horrible places and that is a real shame on her. The good Lord helps those that are honest and real. So to everyone that she is after: you'll be rewarded in the end! Remember that. I know I am protected by the Lord because my good faith is stronger than her devilish ways.

I want everyone to see this proof that I found through a google search of Deborah Dolen Mabel White Scam:

- Deborah Dolen -
aka/dba Mabel White

It has been reported to bustedscammers that Deborah Dolen is currently doing business online as "Mabel White." Because of Dolen's history, and having been the founder of a Sarasota work-at-home company accused of defrauding customers across the nation, a warning was requested. Easily found through a search for Dolen on the Federal Trade Commission's website as well as a routine Google search, the following information is available on this individual:

Thank goodness that she started hacking like that on the phone because I might have bought into what she was saying at first and not realized that she would end up threatening me at the end of the phone call because I questioned her!

Julie Ryals, Mary Harvey, Joanne Kidd and Jeff Kidd

AUTHOR: Mabel White - (U.S.A.)

Although I give RipoffReport irrevocable rights to post this comment-I do not agree with the initial post or how someone was able to "Anonymously" post that is not posting about doing any business with me-and posting wild lies at that. In fact, they are making a comment regarding a previous post that was never a buyer of anything-and was also from that crowd being sued. Pay Pal would have MADE SURE a customer got product. So, there is no way a person could not have recourse. Not sure where they went so far to ad "eviction" but this is also not true at all and IN THEIR DREAMS. It may be true for them when they get done paying a LOT of money for libel and cyberstalking.

VERY obvious the "Anonymous" poster is losing so poorly in Federal Court where they are being sued for Cyberstalking and Libel. That would be against Julie Ryals, Mary Harvey, Joanne Kidd and Jeff Kidd who have nothing better to do-pending a US Federal Southern District Court against them all.

My customers never get involved in crap like this, nor do they have idle time as this poster seems to have. On top of that they have recourse.

#12 Consumer Suggestion

With Monthly Gross Receipts of $3,800, Surely Ms. Dolen Could Reimburse This One Customer?

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

Deborah Dolen has filed for bankruptcy in Houston, Texas. (See filing 09-30452-H2-7.) In her court documents, she alleges that she has resided in Houston, Texas, since 9/28/07 and that, prior to that time, she was a Florida resident at the address listed for the Mabel White Home Living Corporation in Florida records (www.sunbiz.org). She has filed suit against another business owner in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, and her address and telephone number can be obtained from those court filings (case no. H-08-3708).

She posted her home telephone number on a public site: http://www.topix.net/forum/city/orlando-fl/T05QKB7VTUV7MBH61/post79943.

The Mabel White Home Living Corporation was incorporated in Florida in 2005, and the company's address is listed as a private residence from which Ms. Dolen was evicted at least 6 months ago. Ms. Dolen has not filed a single annual report for this company. Florida records display the company as "inactive," but Ms. Dolen still seems to be operating her business as her Mabel White blog has monthly updates. For confirmation, go to www.sunbiz.org.

Ms. Dolen's bankruptcy filings might make interesting reading for any consumers who have paid for her products but have not received them. She asserts that her monthly gross receipts are $3,800 and her "ordinary and necessary" business expenses are $3,000. If these numbers are accurate, surely she could reimburse this one customer?

If you perform a Google search on "Deborah Dolen" and "fraud," the Federal Trade Commission web page appears that cites Ms. Dolen among the FTC's "Top 10 On-Line Scams" for her Para-Link scheme. That case's Stipulated Final Judgment and Order says that for eight years from the date of that order (May 10, 2002), Ms. Dolen must maintain business records of all her transactions including "complaint and refund requests" and that FTC can compel her to produce these records without taking her back to court.

I heartily recommend that every customer who has lost money to Ms. Dolen use the FTC complaint form: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/. Uncle Sam needs to be watching her and he already has the legal authority to compel her to open her books.

She asserts that her monthly gross receipts are $3,800 and her "ordinary and necessary" business expenses are $3,000. If these numbers are accurate, surely she could reimburse this one customer?

If you perform a Google search on "Deborah Dolen" and "fraud," the Federal Trade Commission web page appears that cites Ms. Dolen among the FTC's "Top 10 On-Line Scams" for her Para-Link scheme. That case's Stipulated Final Judgment and Order says that for eight years from the date of that order (May 10, 2002), Ms. Dolen must maintain business records of all her transactions including "complaint and refund requests" and that FTC can compel her to produce these records without taking her back to court.

I heartily recommend that every customer who has lost money to Ms. Dolen use the FTC complaint form: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/. Uncle Sam needs to be watching her and he already has the legal authority to compel her to open her books.

#15 Consumer Suggestion

With Monthly Gross Receipts of $3,800, Surely Ms. Dolen Could Reimburse This One Customer?

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

Deborah Dolen has filed for bankruptcy in Houston, Texas. (See filing 09-30452-H2-7.) In her court documents, she alleges that she has resided in Houston, Texas, since 9/28/07 and that, prior to that time, she was a Florida resident at the address listed for the Mabel White Home Living Corporation in Florida records (www.sunbiz.org). She has filed suit against another business owner in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, and her address and telephone number can be obtained from those court filings (case no. H-08-3708).

She posted her home telephone number on a public site: http://www.topix.net/forum/city/orlando-fl/T05QKB7VTUV7MBH61/post79943.

The Mabel White Home Living Corporation was incorporated in Florida in 2005, and the company's address is listed as a private residence from which Ms. Dolen was evicted at least 6 months ago. Ms. Dolen has not filed a single annual report for this company. Florida records display the company as "inactive," but Ms. Dolen still seems to be operating her business as her Mabel White blog has monthly updates. For confirmation, go to www.sunbiz.org.
