I too have been taken advantage of P.A.A., Inc. a/k/a Threedom Sales or a/ka/ Entrepreneurs Across America. I have done my homework and found they have been breaking the Law in ALABAMA. They do not have a transient business license which is required in the State of Alabama.
They took kme for $60.00 and I sent my request in within 3 business days and since it did not arive to them for over a week they will not return my $60.00.
I have since notified my state and local police departments and the Texas BBB and local BBB. Among the listed above I have notified several of the magazine companies that the P.A.A., Inc. a/k/a Threedom Sales or a/ka/ Entrepreneurs Across America sell. Including Cosmo, Maxim, and several others. If anyone in Alabama would like to know and keep these people out of our state, just call your local authorities if they keep talking to you and tell them that you have several teenagers violating Alabama Code: Section .......
