StoresOnline StoresOnline Scam - no service Internet
I was invited to the Stores Online luncheon. The salesmen were using high pressure tactics and everything said seemed doable. Little did I know the store you would be able to create is in your mind as after that weekend I could not access anything in he StoresOnline.com website. My password created would not work. I paid monthly my fees and continues to try to get SOL customer service to help. Many calls, long waits and transfers to dead end lines until I was disconnected or gave up and hung up. About 18 months of trying to get this resolved and access to the site until I decided to throw in he Owen. I was stupid to wait at long. I try to pay everything owed and gave this ripoff company the benefit of he out. They provided me nothing and I now refuse to pay. They have contacted their debt collectors and have messed up my credit. I thought it was a two way street... Yes I should pay for services I bought.. But if the company did not supply the service then they negated the contract.. Please advise if anyone in Pennsylvania is working on a class action suit against this ripoff company? Thanks Pat

Storesonline Not meeting their terms of sale Salt lake Utah
Purchased 3 licenses for websites around 7 yrs ago. Used 1 and made some money and sold the store.It was good but the $1000 i paid for the online processor was a rip off since it never eventuated after months of emails to a place in hong kong. Two months ago i decided to use another license, 2 months on it still isnt happening for me. When i purchased them it was under an ongoing $24.95 a month publishing fee only plus the original large sum we paid, now apparently there is an access fee to pay in order to you guessed it, access it. Even though my terms of license state i can use my licenses immediately with the passwords provided and without the knowledge of storesonline. I did access one of these licenses a few yrs ago under these terms now i would have to pay an access fee which is completely not meeting the original terms of purchase which i have in writing. My first store was published within the first year as their terms required, and is in fact still going under the other person so in 6 odd yrs it has remained published yet this is how they treat their customers who paid them a lot of money...i thought since i paid so much for the websites i could use one for a service providing business i habe and was willing to pay the monthly hosting cost but two month have gone by already, unfair when i paid them around $5000.

StoresOnline - PMI Coaching ripoff - conferences planned in St. Louis region Internet
Just received a flyer from this company for an upcoming conference that could change your financial life forever. I am typically suspicious of this kind of junk mail. Something for Nothing Well, I got curious and decided to search the Internet. I am so glad I came across Rip-off Report.com. I feel bad for all of the victims of this company. I myself was a victim of a similar scheme years ago when the Internet was still fairly new. It all sounded so wonderful, easy and rewarding but turned out to be a complete rip-off. I wish you all well and keep up the good work thanks for sharing your tribulations with other would be victims. Needless to say, I will not be attending their little show. If I want entertainment and fantasy I will go to the movies. Paul St. Louis, MissouriU.S.A.

StoresOnline, ripoff, fraudulent billing, scammed by PMI too Orem Utah 84097Orem Utah
We fell for the scam - paid ridiculous amount for three websites and got ourselves in further debt by signing up for PMI coaching. Thank God we didn't also give in to the hard sell for the third company that called us wanting us to use their financial services - with just a minimum start-up fee of $6K! We went into this knowing it was a gamble, so my complaint isn't that our sites didn't produce...although SoL DOES make it sound easier than it is. The problem is how they overcharge. You can build sites and have them hosted for peanuts compared to what you pay them. What exactly are you paying them for? That huge pack of paper that supposedly has all the solutions? It's good info, yes, but nothing you couldn't have read in some Internet Business for Dummies sort of thing. Their hosting fees are ridiculous. Our biggest problem came when we tried to get out. Once our year of free hosting was up and the monthly fees began to escalate, I requested info on how to shut down our sites and close our account. I kept getting directed to another page on their site (one you won't find just by browsing - you have to ask for it) where supposedly I could just fill in the license number of the site I wanted cancelled and it would be taken care of. So I tried this. Repeatedly. Never got any confirmation from SoL that the sites had been taken down, so I had no way of knowing until it dissapeared from the net and I stopped getting billed. Finally, I got one site down, then, several months later, one more. Then the cancellation webpage became a dead link! The third site, I transferred to another server, but continued to get billed by SoL for six months. When we called them requesting a refund for the six months we hadn't been using them, we were told that since we didn't TELL them we wanted the site closed, we were still being billed for hosting, even though it was being hosted by someone else. Unfortunately I didn't keep any records - every time I had requested the site be taken down I should have printed out the page, since they never sent confirmation. A warning to all: KEEP COPIES OF ALL CORRESPONDENCE with SoL. If you are unlucky enough to have fallen for their pitch, make sure you document EVERY SINGLE THING you do with them - copy every email you send, print every page for your records. We have no recourse because we have no documentation of every time we tried to shut down our sites and close our account. We are out over $10,000 because of this company and our lack of foresight.

Storesonline PMI Coaching ripoff, consumer fraud, false promises, Orem Utah
I was looking to start a home based business. A friend received an email inviting her and a friend to a brief dinner presentation. During this presentation we were told about this company and how they could show us what it would take to build a successful at home business in our spare time with little or no prior internet or computer knowledge. They told us about several websites that were easily created in days and some made up to $400,000 a year starting the first year. We were also told that you simply had to spend a little time each week and wouldn't have to quit your current job. For $20 we signed up for the full day Seminar on April 23, 2003. The speakers were very good, they told us that as long as you worked on the marketing at least a couple hours a week you would have successful websites up and running. They also said many times that we could build these sites with no prior computer or internet knowledge, no internet access or a computer. Many times during this presentation they emphasized that you could get 3 websites, but because it was so easy to get a wholesaler or Joint Venture, they recommended 6 since this offer was only available during the seminar. A few people asked about other successful sites and they said they could not show them because they didn't have internet access. They did show the partial front page of a couple with no visible URL. They told us that there were many successful sites and that often people could quit their jobs within a few months due to the income from their successful Storesonline websites. Right before one of the breaks they said that it was best to sign up now rather than wait until the end of the seminar to avoid the lines and they only had a limited number of packages available. They also said they would answer all questions after the seminar. I started to sign up for only 3 websites but again the speaker said we would need to get 6 sites so I signed up for all 6 websites. They said they would fill out the credit card transaction and get back to us later. They managed to get back to us during the presentation and while we were trying to listen to the presenter and take notes. They told us simply to sign and we were on our way. I wanted to wait to read what I was going to sign but they said they had to get to others and I needed to sign right then. The presenters also talked about the professional Coaching from PMIcoaching. We were also told we could follow the instructions or have Storesonline build the site for us and our first site would be up within a couple weeks. They did say they recommend PMICoaching if we wanted to get the sites up quicker and PMI would help with the marketing. Within a couple weeks I had already realized that this website was not as easy as Storesonline said it would be. Storesonline instructions were very confusing. PMI, Professional Marketing International, called in May of 2003 and said they would interview me to decide if I qualified for this offer. I was one of a VERY FEW who they had selected for this as they only had a few coaches available and they wanted me to tell everyone how great they are after my successful sites are up. They said their coaches would teach all I needed and work with me in order to have 3 successful websites within 6 months. I also would recover my entire investment, including what I paid Storesonline, within that time period. I was going to be one of their success stories and they would have me sign a letter telling how they had provided me with 3 successful sites. PMI promised my coach would contact me within a couple days and I would receive ten sessions consisting of 30 minutes each with my coach. I signed up and my first session was to pick my products and start building my site. I told him I had no idea of what products to choose and he said just choose one. Pick a wholesaler from the Thomas Register (which did not have many) or from their list. My coach gave me some suggestions on the first night and said I had to have at least five picked out by the next week. I also had to write the basic front page including headers and keywords, etc. He was not familiar with Storesonline at all. We never did spend a full 30 minutes on a session, most were usually around 20 minutes, as they were often late or had to leave early. Also I had to take a couple weeks off in order to actually do some of the things they wanted me to do and so I ended up with two coaches, I switched mid stream. Many of the sessions were simply to go to the PMI site and read their instructions. In building my Storesonline site I tried to get help using the FTP but they simply told me to read the instructions. I do know how to FTP but their site kept stopping the transfer and which ended up each time I tried with bad files. I ended up adding each product separately and uploading the pictures for each one, one at a time. All of the pictures I updated were the same ones that I tried to FTP and all were good files. Every time I asked a question of them they did not seem to either want to help or did not really know the answer. I did get some help as I finished my site and sent in the certificates. I spend $5299.00 with Storesonline including $999 for ECI and then had to pay more afterwards. I also spent $8494.00 to PMI for their sessions, Promo packages and Links-4- Trade. I called ECI-Pay after a customer contacted me because they would not accept her credit card address. She lives in Canada and although my ordering rules in Storesonline are setup to accept and ship to Canada ECI-Pay does not have any way of verifying any credit cards outside the US. This was also not told to us by Storesonline. ECI is part of the package we purchased. I paid $999.00 through Storesonline for their preferred Merchant Services provider and can not sell to anyone outside of the United States. The three areas I am most troubled with are: 1) The way they have you sign up at the seminar without being able to read the agreement or even having access to most of the information that is given after the seminar. This prevented me from learning that by signing their agreement I was throwing away my right to cancel within 3 days. 2) The promise that was made to me by PMI to have three successful websites within 6 months and have my entire investment, including Storesonline, by the timeline so that I could be one of their success stories. I have not heard from PMI since my last coaching session. 3) Storesonline did not tell us that ECI does not accept credit card orders from outside the United States. All three of these items are Fraud. Forcing me to sign during the presentation at the seminar and not at least telling me that I could not cancel once I signed. I could not even cancel while still at the seminar. I have one website going, that I work at and have made four sales to date. This is not a success, since it costs more to pay the monthly charges to ECI each month than I am making on the sales. Jim Walnut Creek, CaliforniaU.S.A.

Stores Online Major Rip-off Scam Orem Utah
StoresOnline mega-rip-off company. Has anyone been successful in getting a refund from this company? Is anyone putting together a class-action lawsuit here in Canada? I paid StoresOnline close to $3000 for 3 website which according to them would practically build themselves. They use high-pressure tactics at their seminars to con you into buying their websites. They deceive you into thinking their software is so easy to use even someone with no computer experience can figure it out. Wrong. They also don't mention all the extra monthly fees for hosting each website and advanced tech support. And constant pressure from them to spend another $10,000 to let them help you build your website. The fees are never-ending. I want to put an end to StoresOnline and their deceptive way of selling their products. Please contact me if you are in Canada and would like to be added to a class-action lawsuit. Thank you.

On September 12, 2006, I attended a luncheon/seminar presented by storesonline.com in Plattsburgh. I signed up for the next seminar that was held on September 30, 2006, in Boltan Valley, Vermont. There were about 50 people.It was a very long day, made even worse for me because of the distance I'd had to travel. During the course of the day, I signed up to become a business owner with the company.Because of the lateness of the hour when I got home, I did not actually start trying to get online until the next day (Oct 1, 2006). During my attempts to do this, I kept running into Pop-up blocks and such. I've tried to reach these people both on the phone and online, with no luck.Just recently, I've found, much to my chagrin (to put it mildly), I've found out that this company has class-action suits against them in 14 different states (I haven't seen Vermont listed as one of them, AS YET!), and my financial advisor has also told me about these suits.My recourse to this so far has to be to contact my credit card company to contest the charge (where the down payment was made), and to block any further payments. I am also in the process of locating various agencies to alert them to the very real possibility of fraud with this company. So far, I've been able to get addresses and phone numbers for the State Attorney General in both New York State and Vermont, as well as the Better Business Bureau.I will fight this, if it comes down to it (I've also been in contact with my lawyer in this matter), and, even if I've lost the initial down payment of $2,000.00, I will have blocked the rest of the money.I am given to understand that this has been going all across the country, and individual people have been bilked out of thousands of dollars. This is being done to thousands of people who really can't afford this to happen. These people have worked hard to get a certain amount in their nest egg, and these people have taken that away from them.Although I'd like to see the perpetrators put into prison for a very long time (the rest of their natural lives might be sufficient), I will settle for seeing them out of business, and some portion of the monies dispursed to ALL victims of this scam.Mary jJane Plattsburgh, New YorkU.S.A.

Rip-off Report gives StoresOnline a POSITIVE rating in customer support and quality assurance. StoresOnline pledges to resolve complaints and address any issues from the past, present and in the future - committed to 100% satisfaction - whatever it takes say company executives.
My partner and I attend the Internet Cash Flow Seminar in August 2004. We became interested and paid the 30.00 for the one day seminar. We had an idea for a web site, but it was complicated and needed to be very secure for our customers. We asked the representatives about the mechanics that would be involved and all of them said no problme. Needless to say, we bought six web sites at the price of $6300.00. At first we were very impressed with Storeslonline, because of the materials that were available to online merchants and because we got good customer service. In October we finally got our web site built and submitted it for programming. Our site needed to be password protected and customers also needed a login. I was assured that it would work by the programmer that had been assigned to our site. We were very excited. Out site went live on October 17th, and we began submitting to search engines and did the pay-per-click campagins. We got our first order on November 10. I thought all was well (because Storesonline told us that it was) until our first customer tried to log in using his username and password. They did not work. I called Storesonline and told me that they got it to work. Well, long story short, it does not work. We had to give our first customer back his money. I called Storesonline and told them that it did not work and they suggested that I contact my programmer. I emailed him and emailed me back telling me that he never promised me that it would work. Our 3rd payment for our financed web sites was due on November 21 and we decided that we were not going to pay them anymore money until they fixed it. They said that they would look into the problem and get back to us. They have assiged a customer service number, but we have not heard anything from them. Fair Finance called last night to ask about our payment and my partner told them that we were not going to pay them anymore money. So, the fight begins. We sent them a certified letter asking for our money back and the sending the letter also gets us out of the automatic debt from our checking account each month. Something has to be done about them!!! Vicki Tulsa, OklahomaU.S.A.

I invested several thousand dollars to get the professional backing from StoresOnline.None of the things promised by StoresOnline at the seminar have actually been carried out. I built my own web sites as encouraged by StoresOnline with the belief that when they reviewed them, all the necessary changes to make my site as professional as possible would be done by their programmers prior to publication.My web sites supposedly were reviewed by my own personal programmer; I lost sales because the merchant account was not checked and thus, the sales were rejected. Also, again my sites were never critiqued by a professional programmer to ensure a professional web site, which was promised at the seminar I attended in November 2002.I purchased 6 electronic storefronts, which basically has been nothing more than a program to build a website. I thought I was buying the expert assistance in assuring that my online stores would be perfect in every way and the needed traffic and expert advice would be available whether I knew to ask or not. As stated at the seminar, Storesonline would preview my storefront and align my ideas with theirs and produce a guaranteed professional storefront to ensure that no mistakes went out. No store was even supposed to be published until this was done.The so-called previews have missed errors in my programming, plus a required knowledge of HTML was needed, of which I have only very basic know how. No professional programmer advice was given as to how I might improve the appearance of my stores. Help was simply to tell me to go elsewhere to learn how to do that. Any changes to my web sites had to be made through the changes department and any actual programming would have cost yet another $50 an hour, which I did not want to do as it had already cost me a fortune not to mention the need for hundreds of dollars more to promote the stores.I paid thousands of dollars for PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE and got basically the minimum, a web site building program, which I had and information, which is available in books and on the Internet for free.I paid an outside designer to help me because I was not getting the help I needed through Storesonline and I wanted a professionally built store. Even she was unable to get the support and assistance needed to upload the newly designed web site. The representatives at the seminar said there would not be a problem to change a ready-built web site to Storesonline. Not so. It is almost impossible to get the assistance needed. Also stated was that should you decide to not stay with Storesonline, your stores would still be yours.To move them elsewhere for hosting means that you must basically rebuild your store as you do lose a lot in the move.On December 23, 2003, was again approached by Storesonline. I really wanted to succeed with this, so I was all for becoming the StoresOnline Texas Success Team for which I credited to my credit cards several thousand more dollars TO STORESONLINE for PMI Coaching. Out of this, we only received ten 20- to 30-minute phone calls with a person who basically told me where to go on the Internet to find information on how to promote my website.I should be demanding a much larger refund than what I am due to the cost of advertising a faulty web site, time lost doing everything myself as well as the stress and expense caused by being involved with StoresOnline. I ended up with what I thought was a heart attack, but according to the cardiologist was only stress related. That also cost me another $600.00 in medical bills.The debt continues to grow due to having to move my websites to a more reputable host, which despite the assurance of StoresOnline that you would be able to do this without problem, will have to all be rebuilt. Thus, lost income due to downtime, new hosting fees, plus web designer fees, ongoing advertising losses, possible lost sales due to being down, credit card fees and interest accumulation, etcA representative DID contact me, but all he did was make every effort to convince me that I was wrong and that StoresOnline had done exactly what they said they would do. I told me I wanted my full refund and he informed me that that was not an amicable agreement for StoresOnline.My refund is approximately $10,000 and I want every dime of it back.Alice Odessa,, TexasU.S.A.Click here to read other Rip Off Reports on Storesonline

This company has a very slick and polished presentation. They are very good at dangling the carrot in front of you that you believe their hype. Then they came in for the kill. They make you believe that you can't succeed without their packaged program. And for today only you can have it for this remarkable reduced price. Their sales people keep at you until you are convinced you can't survive without their package. And you can only get this offer today. I didn't think I was a sucker until afterI met this group. After buying 3 storefronts, I took the package home. What I found was a CD with a free and outdated copy of Acrobate reader (version 2.2) and old text files. The getting started building the storefront will only work with their site. I have tried going to their site, but have not gotten the needed help from them. Anything on their site is available on the net for free. I used a check for a down payment and financed the remainder. Today I got a letter from a finance company in California that they will be using electronic transfer from my bank account. I did not authorize any electronic transfers from my banking account. Would be interested in get my money back and getting rid of this company. I feel like a fool! Patti Spokane, WashingtonU.S.A.

Misleading about product, services & support Outright lied Orem UtahStoresOnline Inc. preys on innocent folks trying to make some money with the false promises of realizing financial independence and becoming rich. They deliver false promises of being able to make money right away from their product without any further costs than the initial fee. This is completely untrue. I am very computer and internet savvy and I even have some html code experience. I followed their instructions to a tee and provided them with the product files and images needed to get my storefront up and running. I actually did all the work; all they needed to do was upload my files. The files they uploaded were all completely incorrect. The wrong images were with the wrong products. The pricing was wrong, the text was wrong, the links within the site to move around to other areas were wrong.StoresOnline also offers your first website to be completely programmed by them so that it is up and running in 15 to 20 business days. This is completely untrue. They claimed to have been so backed up that I had to wait almost two months before they would start mine. After a first draft was finally complete I made (many) corrections and sent back to have them make the changes. EVERYTHING was wrong! I can't tell you how many phone calls and emails I went through trying to get some support and nothing was done! I was told that this is all we can do for you, it's taking too much of our time. Are you kidding me?! I spent $3,995 on a product that is useless and you aren't going to give me any support?! After doing research, I realized that this company is a scam and their reputation as crooks is spreading. I'm in real estate investments and I am telling everyone I see to stay away.There are many other false promises that were made in the workshop that I can elaborate on if needed.

StoresOnline - PMI Coaching - LInks4Trade EMS ripoff Big Promises No Action, Con Artists Deluxe, Useless Product for BIg Money, Takes Advantage of Honest People Orem Utah
We feel very violated and lied to by StoresOnLine and PMI Coaching. We went to StoresOnLine's workshop feeling that we may finally be on the road to something that would offer us some finical security on the internet. Wrong. We were conned by smooth talking people who prey on people like us. We signed for the program in Aug. 2002. and our site was not published until Nov. 2002. In all that time we were doing everything they told us. When we called and asked about changing the site in some way we were told it did not fit their template. To make any changes it would cost more money. We ended up with a site not of our liking and totally unacceptable. PMI Coaching was another fraud. They talked to us by phone and gave us the greatest sales pitch you have ever heard . We subscribed with them thinking that in order to succeed, we needed their services. They gave us just enough help to say that they did something. All of this coaching for a fee of $8,694.00. This included $5,994.00 for a guaranteed 12,000 Unique Visitors. This was a joke as we had less than 300. Nothing was realized from the other $2700.00 they received. During the entire year we had no orders. We would like our money back and them out of business.

Storesonline,PMI Coaching, Galaxymall ripoff I would love to picket their luncheon! This deceptive company mistreated, ripped off and scammed me Orem Utah
I just heard about this site. I can't believe I never heard of it before, but by reading the first few reports, my story sounds just the same. My son and I attended the dinner invite at a local hotel. I wanted to do something on the internet to try and bring in some extra money, seeing as how I'm disabled to find full time employment. SSI doesn't go far these days, and my son had just finished computer courses at local tech school. He would help me and work his job. It sounded just like the right thing for me. I could do thisall at home, and make the extra income we needed. My credit report was good, but I could only put a portion of the $5200 on my card, the rest had to go thru a loan company, of course it was one of SOL's venues, at an outlandish % rate. I'm trying to be brief here. They promised I could be up and running with websites within 30 days, HAAH. No way Jose. It was months. In the meantime, i was also approached by PMI coaching saying they wanted to give me extra help one on one mentoring, of course at additional charges, and encouraged me to buy a tape recorder and tapes so I could record these phone meetings, which I did. Right now, I'm glad i still have them all on tape. To make a long story short, after repeatedly calling them and being told everytime I called it would cost me more to put this on the site, or you didn't pay for that at the seminar, or we will make you a success story for a price, I imagine I racked up at least $10K. I filed with the BBB in Utah, and here in town. I contacted my credit card company and all I have gotten back from SOL, (which I now affectionately call Shitonline), is $1500 or $2500. My son and I signed up for this scam on March 12,2002. I can't believe that SOL has sent me 2 more emails inviting me to more luncheons or dinners in this area. The last time, I contacted the TV station, the BBB here in town, the cops, and told them of this big scam that is coming to town, obviously they didn't do a thing, because I received another invite and they are holding a lunch/dinner today in Midland, and tomorrow they are hitting the Odessa area. If I wasn't so afraid of being arrested I'd picket the hotel, or tell all those attending to eat and run for the hills, which in this part of the country would be a long way. I have names,phone numbers, pages of conversations between me and the incompetent people that work at SOL, all of which I sent to my credit card company, total 136 pages. I would love to file a class action suit against them and get my credit card back down to where it was before I ran into Shitonline. I could just kick myself in the butt when I overheard a conversation between a man and Mr Pohlman, of which this man asked him how's your hotel doing? Did any of you know that Mr Pohlman's son also ran the banking services for the credit card services on your websites? Rene Gardendale, TexasU.S.A.

storesonline Canceled with this company in '05, now they are making fraudulent charges for nonexistent domains six years later. Internet
Storesonline is infamous with the BBB and has been banned in a couple of states, yet apparently has gotten into bed with ripoffreport since all the complaints against them have been plastered over with a big red They're working this out sort of disclaimer. My family fell prey to their deceptive tactics many years ago - sometime in '04 or '05 - it's a blur, to be honest; what I know is that we lost about $12,000 on their promises and finally, after several attempts, closed all our accounts. It took several calls and a lot of runaround to stop their monthly charges for web hosting we weren't using, but finally we appeared to be blessedly rid of them. Fast forward SIX YEARS; I open my email to see that yesterday a paypal payment of about $40 was made to StoresOnline for domain hosting and renewal. Needless to say I contested the charge in paypal, cancelled the billing agreement that I do not recall EVER authorizing, and will be further investigating the matter. If I discover that this charge has been happening every year and flying under my radar, I will be contacting my state attorney general. Feels like Storesonline will be haunting me until my dying day. These people are as shady as they come. RUN from their seminars and never give them ANY information, as it is apparent they hang onto it indefinitely. If you are with them and cancel, demand proof of cancellation IN WRITING. Then stick it in a safe deposit box and keep it FOREVER.

Storesonline is dishonest and engages in unsound business practices.They even tell their clients to break the law and use poor business practices. The Main reason I don't want to be associated with them is because they told me to break the law too. The tutorial from stoesonline lesson 3 page 10 says: Place ads again using your title/headline, offer your product and take orders. Do not tell people, I am just testing and can't take your orders. It is against the law to take orders if you cannot fill the orders. Storesonline told me in the tutorial to break the law. They also told me on the same page of the tutorial to spam usenet with ads, which may not be illegal, but it is poor buisness. Spam violates usenet agreements. (First go to the usenet and begin placing ads using your title/headline is the direct quote on page 10 of lesson 3 in the tutorial) They go on to say if I did place ads on usenet I should have a response in 3 to 5 days. Just exactly how I would have responses without a website to respond to? Note that the context of the above quotes is from lesson 3 testing keywords and headlines. Before the website is up, the headline has to be tested. There are quite a few other bad things about the storesonline tutorial and business practices. I had the following experiences. They are probably typical: We were told that there would be more training after the seminar, specfically concerning SSL credit card security. No mention is made of credit card security in the tutorials. On the subject of drop shipping we were told at the seminar to send an e-mail request to and he would provide his inkjet source. He never did. After only a very few days I started to feel that I was being flim flammed. I sent a few e-mails They did not repsond to e-mail promptly, and they did not provide answers when they did respond. I could go on and on but the main thing I want to say is, I cannot reccomend Storesonline. Their training is very poor at best and illeagal at worst. I signed a contract with them in good faith with the understanding that my internet tutorials would be well prepared, of value and above all legal. I do not want to be involved with a company that tells me to break the law. If they do not want to void the contract voluntarily, I think a judge will see things in my favor Steve lancaster, PennsylvaniaU.S.A.

StoresOnline pledges to resolve complaints and address any issues from the past, present and in the future - committed to 100% satisfaction - whatever it takes say company executives.
I attended a seminar on 02/05/04 in Hopkinsville. They were telling us how to money using the internet. They were very believeable and appeared to be knowledgeable. They also showed pictures of people who was very successful using their product. One of the successful ones was purportedly the brother of Brandon Lewis. I initially gave them a check for the $30.00 for the seminar. By the end the presentation, which was too long, they served lunch which was a turkey sandwich, salad, chips and a brownie. I decided not to pursue it and their attitude changed. They told me I had to wait before I got my money back. Finally they told me I had to wait until I got ready to leave before they would give me my check back. I had to ask three times and each time they kept trying to persuade me to come to the workshop. I am so glad that I persisted and got my money back. Especially after seeing all the ripoff reports. Thank you so very much. Karen hopkinsville, KentuckyU.S.A.

Since my wife has been disabled for years and I had been unable to work since an automobile accident several months earlier, this sounded very attractive. We attended, signed up and paid for a longer (full day) training session.It all sounded great! We were urged to buy six web sites that we expected them to help us with. We were sure the speakers had said we would get help finding products, making contacts, building our site, and marketing it. Coming to terms with the belief that I might never be able to do physical labor again, this internet thing started to sound even better.We only had a few hundred dollars in our checking account and they wanted thousands; we weren't sure our credit was that good. But they assured us our credit was good with them, took our last few hundred dollars, showed me where to sign and I did. My wife and I smiled nervously at each other and dared to dream of a time when we would not need to worrry about money. Little did we know that our desire to dream would lead us to be foolishly trusting of the people who made it sound so easy.What StoresOnline did do for us is hook us up with other companies that would help them rip us off. The promised merchant account cost an extra $1000 (we foundout later that we could have gotten it a lot cheaper in a number of other places), The Links4Trade account was another added expense and I thought it was useless, they reccomended the tax club to us and since we knew nothing about taxes we figured we need expert help and spent more money on that. Oh and when we found out how little help StoresOnline was really going to give us we got really scared and looking for more expert help signed up with PMI a mentoring service affiliated with StoresOnline.See how this thing just snowballed on us? We put all the money we had intothis venture and continued to incur more debt in an attempt to pump some life into it. We felt like we had no other choice - in for a penny in for a pound. Either we had to make it work or lose everything. Finally, I contacted StoresOnline to inquire about the possibility of selling my websites and found out that even if I do sell them my name stays on them. I would need to get a have a new contract with them and they weren't sure they would be willing to do that!Now we are wondering if the only option left is bankruptcy. I'd thank StoresOnline for all their help with our dreams but I get the impression they don't much care. Maybe they could suggest how I can pay for next week's rent or groceries.Rene Spencer, MassachusettsU.S.A.

I too made the GRAND mistake of falling into the storesonline trap. I simply need some help trying to get my money back ($4700.00). I made the purchase in May / 06, I am willing to enter into a class action suit, please note I'm in Toronto, Canada. We simply can not let companies and people (such as storesonline) get away with ruthless cons. Jim Richmond Hill, OntarioCanada

I live in Singapore and also attended their June 1 workshop. Unfortunately I was suckered into purchasing their package costing over $3000 Sing $. Later I found out that I could get the same things online for free or almost free. I wrote them a letter requesting refund in early August but so far no response (ignoring me). Below is excerpt of my letter to them ========================= Please see below my reasons for requesting the cancelation Pricing: when I first attended the workshop in June 1, I was a newbie and knew very little about the options available on the internet and the costs involved. I purchased the 3000+ package plus the payment gateway on the faith that it was the best value (note I said value not lowest price) around. But when I finally had a chance to know more about the available options, below are my findings: all the tools in the mechant section are free to use online eg overture is free to use eg there are few free web-builders available (I'll touch on this aspect below) for international businesses, it is not necessary to use the payment gateway with eNEts which you have asked us to purchase. In fact, using Paypal and clickbank is more widely accepted, easier to setup, and dramtically less costly to use the information, tutorials etc in the merchant section are available for free online your hosting monthly fees are exorbitant compared to normal market rates providing the same services I feel I have been taken for a ride and your company has taken advantage of my naivety! If I minus off the free items which you have packaged in, I am in fact paying for a very high priced hosting service! Features (please check my chat history for full view of my frustations) lets talk about the storebuilder. I have found this to be extremely UNuserfriendly and could not help me in designing even the simplest mini-site! I could not find the right template, I could not move the images around to the positions I want and the images were limited in choice. When I asked about new templates, I found these could be uploaded, but done only when the programmers are free to do so, not when I required it! I even tried to use another host with a better web builder, but was told I could not transfer my domain name (purchased from you) for 60 days! I know I am supposed to have a $250 value of free webpage design service, but I found out that this could take anyhere up to 14 days to complete - too long! When I finally decided to use my own web bulder and tried to upload my completed webpages by FTP instead, I was told that I could only use smart FTP since I had problems loading using my other FTP programmes (eg directly from NVU). when I asked a question about a suitable url for my pages, I was told that I could NOT have a url like mydomain.com/mypage.html cos the system is such that I need to have some complicated url like mydomain.com/public/filename123/mypage.html or something like that (see chat transcrpts). This is despite my repeated questions about why other hosts are able to do so..I would be crazy to point my customers to that page! your customer support chat service girls are not up to par. I have to keep repeating myself to get them to understand, even despite having written these down many times in the chat. This really frustrates me! Also, this issue of requesting cancelation also reveals a couple of areas: I wroite in on July 23rd, and did not get a reply until today despite repeated emails (I saw your date of the below resend email as Aug 2,which stil is 10 days from my 1st request). This does not show professionalism in dealing with my requests in a tmely manner! In addition, I was told that I could not reply this email to the person who wrote to me (ie Cherry) cos the system is like that and my email will be addressed by whomever is in charge at the tme of receipt - this means a need for me to reiterate the whole process again...does not show ownership of the problem! I can go on and on, but at the risk of aggravating my blood pressure which is already rising with the writing of this email. In summary, my customer experience in using SOL has been terrible and I am tempted to share this wth all asunder within Singapore, and espeically in your next workshop in this country. If you have true integrity and faith, you would have allowed customers a longer $back guarantee instead of just 3 days! and this 3 days was not highlighted anywhere nor written down in my receipt of purchase!I looked thro my whole package, and there was no business to buiness form around. I wish you to address this by a complete and FULL refund. ============================ Any advice for seeking redress in Singapore?

StoresOnline ripoff,dishonest fradulent billing Orem UtahRip-Off Report Investigation: shows that StoresOnline & iMergent is fulfilling its commitment to provide excellent customer service. Rip-off Report gives StoresOnline a POSITIVE rating in customer support and quality assurance. StoresOnline pledges to resolve complaints and address any issues from the past, present and in the future - committed to 100% satisfaction - whatever it takes say company executives.
I would like to report how StoresOnline pressured me and my wife into purchasing their storefronts under the auspices that I would be able to sell anything on the internet and makes lots of money doing so by following their step by step guides, instruction and internet chat help. I found out today that I wanted to use a dropshipper who is willing to work with me to get my website designed and to use their products on Storesonline and was told that all I had to do was to have their (StoresOnline) IT to add a datafeed to my website. The comment from the dropshipper was I see you purchased one of their expensive websites - we worked with them before On closing the dropshipper said Good Luck...hope you get it worked out. Well, needless to say...StoresOnline IT (chat) will not allow the data feed and I would have to copy each picture of each product and down each one manually. I tried that and found that each picture has to be a XML file in order to import the picture...then the message read No SKU or No product name. I tried contacting StoresOnline to correct this problem and to much dismay..not resolved. StoresOnline is a online predator offering quick solutions on how people can retire and get rich quick and the only person(s) getting rich quick is StoresOnline. You have to go their suppliers to register your domain name, go to their dropshipper list to access secured and trustworthy listing (Theirs)everything leads back to StoresOnline. Its very frustrating when you give what little money you have work hard for to gain financial freedom..and yet to get it through StoresOnline you still tied with a ball and chain.
