At the 2nd of two 2-hour meetings (in the 2nd meeting they play high volume music which doesn't allow you to think), afterwhich the original Associate ambushed me with a private meeting one-on-one and TELLS me a $100. fee for membership is required right NOW, then he hands me a 1099 and ONLY the last page of a 4-page Associate Agreement. When he returns I ask him for the rest of the Agreement which he unhappily gives me and begins telling me how "Lucky" I am to be accepted by PHP, only a few individuals are accepted and I'm one of them. Wow. My little voice is screaming in my ear to get the frik outta there. He is reticent to answer my questions about commission and how it all works, he says I'm unusual to ask so many questions. Then I tell him I'm going to think about it and begin to leave. B4 I go he asks if we can meet 2moro after I look over everything, I say, give me a call. Well he calls me 3 times in 1 hour the nxt morn and we go for coffee. I go over a few questions and he again says this is not the norm to be answering so many questions. Next I ask him if the the total of $570 is the bottom-line for costs and pls tell me if there are any other extranious charges, he says "Oh well there is a $54. membership fee for website maint. & access", I reply "Okay, now are there ANY OTHER amounts that I need to know about?" he says "No-None". I sign the Agreement(which I read) & give ccard info, 1099 & New Associate Application (not all of it, I refuse some which asks the city I was born in which is none of their business as I have identity theft) & give it to him. He proceeds to explain a few requirements and at the very end says, "You must have Insurance with one of our Providers as a Downline Associate, It's required." I am flabbergasted, tell him this is ridiculous and why couldn't he have mentioned this when I asked him earlier if there were any other costs? He says this is the way PHP does business. I ask for my information to be returned and tell him I'll call him back the nxt day regardless as to my decision.
Throughout I asked reasonable questions and he was markedly frustrated and would make a noise or tell me that "This is unusual". I can't believe that anyone would just be such a lemming as to not ask questions or read the Agreement. I felt pressured and fortunately walked away from the situation.
