My daughter was solicited by Readers Across America. After the first month, they made her sleep on the floor of the motel room if she didn't get enough sales. They taught her the stories to tell to sell magazines. They keep all the cash. The kids have to pay for their rooms and food out of their sales. If there is any excess money from sales, it is put on the "Books" for them, but they never see it again. When my daughter and her friend decided to leave, they dropped them off at the bus station in Denver without their belongings with no money and no bus ticket. My daughter filed a police report right away, told them about the drugs they were trying to force on kids. I called Maria Black and told her that if she did not pay for a bus ticket home for my daughter and her friend, she would be dealing with me. She bought them a ticket and gave them a total of $30.00 for food to last the 2 day bus ride. They took my daughters clothes and gave them to the other kids on the team even though Maria Black promised that they would send their clothes. If anyone is solicted by one of the team, try to get the "ducket", that is the most valuable item. It lists the things they are supposed to say and show the "marks". Also, Maria Black, pays for the rooms with her credit card and probably takes a tax deduction, IF she pays taxes on the credit card receipts. The kids actually pay for the rooms. She sent my daughter a 1099 that was overstated. Maybe someone can the IRS look into her dealings. Whatever works to get this scum away from our kids. Also, some of the team members are on the run from the law, have warrants in other states. They brag about the warrants too.
