Entrepreneurs Sales Gregg Petersen Books/Magazine Sales - Total Rip-Off...Never received Memphis TN
ON 11/4/16, I was in a gas station and was approached by Mr. Peterson.  I listened to his tale of how he wanted to better himself, make a living, and not go to jail like all his friends.  He didn't want to become a knucklehead.  He had a brochure and receipt book - I bought one book - Treasruy of Bible Stories for $50 plus $15 Process & Handling.  I called on multiple occasions - and actually got an email response once.  Now - nothing!  And, no book.  This group is a total rip-off.  It's sad, because legitimate causes (schools, etc.) are impacted by people not trusting them because of groups like this.

Entrepreneurs Sales Selling books and magazines Michigan City Indiana
On January 7, 1017 a very nicely dressed young man rang my doorbell.  He said he was from a poorer neighborhood and working hard to better himself.  He was selling books and magazines.  I ordered two books from him to be sent to a church as a memorial from a friend that had just passed away. Thirty-six hours later I was at the most office mailing a Notice of Cancellation with a receipt from the post office.  My check was cashed 2 days later and my Notice of Cancellation was delivered the next day.  I waited 4 months for my refund check.  It never came.  I then started calling.  I called 7 times and left a message but never got a return call.  On May 19, I sent another registered letter and asked when I was going to receive my refund.  That was 4 weeks ago.  I have heard nothing from them and it has been over 5 months.

Entrepreneurs Sales Magazine Michigan City Indiana
Entrepreneurs Sales, a salesman came to my door. I orderd 8 issues of a magazine  and wrote a check for $85 dollars. He was very friendly and I thought I'd help him make a pay check. I ordered my magazines in November 2015 and it is now May 2016 and I have gotten nothing from this company. I had contacted then twice and gotten an email back from a women named Jennifer saying that they would be sent soon. All I wanted was a FULL refund and it doens't look like I will get it. They are VERY unhelpful and just take your money. They give you nothing in return. It's a crap company and I'm very angry/frustrated with them. DO NOT BUY A MAGAZINE FROM THIS COMPANY EVER!!!!!! You're better off giving your money to charity so that it goes towards something good instead of some low life company who just takes your money and doesn't give you anything in return.

I ordered a magazine on July 12, 2005 from this guy doing door to door in Dayton, Ohio called Turtle for my grandson in Wisconsin. When my grandson's address changed I called this palce and informed them and they said no problem. I had then totally forgotten about it until today. I called my son to see if they were getting the magazine for my grandson and they said no. I cannot find the paper they gave me when I ordered it so I went back to my check book and found the carbon copy of the check.

Entrepreneurs Across America is a joke and I want everyone to know that we need to fight this company from scamming us the way they have. I have found a place that I thought you might like to know of where you can also file a complaint on this company. So I thought that you all would like this website it is www.Ftc.GOV Or you can e-mail them at Complaint@FTC.Gov. Something needs to be done to this company so that they cannot go around and think that they can scam everyone. If everyone complains to the Ftc Gov maybe we can fight against this company and have something done about the issues we are all having with Entrepreneurs across America because we shouldn't have to stand up for what they have done by pulling fast ones on us. This company needs to know we aren't putting up or standing for anymore of their scams,stealing. Rebecca South Easton, MassachusettsU.S.A.

Entrepreneurs Sales Book/Magazine Sales Door to Door Never Fulfilled Michigan City Indiana
Two young individuals came to my door on 8/7/15 selling magazines and books in an effort to earn money for college.  They stated that they travel throughout the U.S. conducting sales and are put up in hotels by their employer.  Upon further questioning both youth were from the Chicagoland area.  They both had ID badges.  After asking many questions about what they were selling, I purchased sets of chrisitian based children's books, which I anticipated to donate to a charity for Christmas gifts.  I paid $160.00 for the books.  The check was cashed at Wood Forest National Bank on 8/18/15.  Since placing this order, I have not received any books.  I want a full refund for failure to fulfill my order.

Entrepreneurs Across America - Threedom Sales RIPOFF SCAM Denton, Texas
On October 13, 2005 I reluctantly ordered and paid for three different magazine subscriptions from a young girl going door-to-door, totalling $118. After not having received any of these magazines, I tried contacting the company from which I purchased them (EAA/Threedom Sales), to no avail. I called everyday, sometimes twice a day, for over three months. I left message after message, not one was ever returned. The last week that I tried calling, all I got was a busy signal. So I thought I'd go right to the source(s). I called the magazine companies directly and spoke with them. Not only did none of them have record of ever having received my order(or my $$), but said that I had WAY OVER PAID. Exmp: I had paid EAA $40 for 12 issues for one mag.subscription, and they told me that if I had bought it directly from them, that they only charge $15 for 12 issuses. One of the companies told me that (EAA/Threedom Sales)were not even authorized to sale their magazines. Of course my check was cashed by EAA the day after I wrote it. I sent them a certified letter explaining the situation and requesting a full refund. STILL NO RESPONSE FROM THEM!!(& NO $$$) Anita Weatherford, TexasU.S.A.

I have purchased 4 magazines ($162.00) from Entrepreneurs Across America / Threedom Sales, Inc thru 2 college students that came door to door selling magazines to win a trip.I have not received any of the subscriptions and neither have the magazine companies for the magazines that I bought. I checked up on the internet to see if they were legitimate and Better Business Bureau shows nothing about them. I had called Entrepreneurs Across America in October to do a change of address and a customer service rep changed my info. When I tried to call back in December to change 2 of the subscriptions their phone number was disconnected. I tried a couple times since then even contacting another sales company (? All-Star Promotions) who said they would contact Threedom Sales, Inc and have them contact me. They would not give me a customer service number for Threedom Sales they just had a personal phone number. I have also sent several emails to several of the companies for the magazines I purchased but the only responses I have gotten are that they have no information to help me because they never received the order.

Threedom Sales - Entrepreneurs Across America ripoff deceptive fake Denton Texas
A seemingly nice guy came to my door selling magazines. I didn't really want or need one, but I know how hard it is to do door-to-door sales and how awful and discouraging it is when no one buys from you. He focused on the fact that I said that I was a Christian, talked nice with me for quite a while, saying all kinds of things that I know now had to have been lies. I ended up ordering Guidepost magazine. I didn't really want to spend the money but I figured that it wouldn't hurt to add some quality reading material to our coffee table. Well, 5 months went by and I never received an issue. I called numerous times, not even to find an answering machine. I went to the physical location only to find that they had moved. I tried the email address but knew that that would be pointless. I decided that I had been screwed and was angry at myself for being so naive, and angry at them for being so deceptive and evil to take college students' hard earned money. Someone posted on this website (Ripoffreport.com) the phone number for Kelly Zoppi (903 429-3497). The first few times I called, there was no answer, but eventually I was successful, and they issued me a full refund within a matter of a week or so. I was curious what the deal had been with Threedom Sales, and the girl on the phone (at Kelly's number) said that before they had allowed their individual contracted companies to handle their own customer service, which made for a lot of dead ends for those of us who were cheated. She said they now handle all customer service and are working to rebuild their reputation. I am grateful that I was given my money back, but I will forever be hesitant to buy anything from someone I don't know personally, and I will forever be disgusted at the deceitfulness of the scumbag who came to my door to sell me that magazine, and had the nerve to ask me for my phone number(for HIM to call me)!! Thank God I didn't give it to him! Kelley Denton, TexasU.S.A.

Entrepreneurs Sales - door to door magazine sales, magazines never arrived - Michigan City Indiana
On July 15, 2015, we fell prey to a con artist who arrived at our door.  His name was Gregg Peterson and he had what seemed to be valid identification and licenses for his sales job.  He spent much time telling us about his background and how he was trying to not end up in jail like other family members.  He just wanted to get himself out of poverty and make something of himself.  He even spent time talking with our kids who were outside playing at the time he walked up our driveway.  We ended up purchasing 3 magazines for a total of $110 (which ended up at a total of $125 since they tacked on a $15 service fee).  We felt good about this costly purchase since he said 40% of the money goes directly to him to help him learn job skills and prepare for the work world.   It is now almost 6 months later and the magazines have never arrived.  The receipt we received looked legitimate...printed up with all the usual disclaimers and in triplicate.  It did indicate it could take up to 4 months to receive the magazines, which seems awfully long since for my son's school magazine drive it took just a few weeks to receive them. I have called the only phone number I have several times.  One time I did actually get through to a real person, who informed me that December would be the first issue we receive.  December came and went without magazines.  I've left several messages with no return calls.   We have definitely learned our lesson and will never fall prey for this again, no matter what kind of sob story the salesman gives us.  And unfortunately this means any well-meaning person (including kids selling for trips) will have to take No for an answer from our house.

Entrepreneurs Sales Fraud, Scam, Bogus, Illegitimate Michigan City Indiana
We ordered 3 books for $130 over a year ago and never received them.  Company will not refund our money. A representative from Entrepreneurs Sales knocked on my front door on July 29, 2014.  He explained that his company gives young people who have made mistakes an opportunity to get their life back on track and earn some income.  They sell magazine subscriptions and books.  While the prices seemed expensive, we felt bad for the young man and agreed to purchase 3 books totaling $130 and wrote him a check payable to Entrepreneurs Sales.  Over a year later, we still have not received the books.  I called and emailed the company 5 times in June 2015 any they have not taken any action.  The person answering the phone said she took my information (receipt number, date of sale, and books ordered) and gave it to the owner to decide if she would like to give us a refund.  We also filed complaints with the Indiana Attorney General and the Better Business Bureau.  Both organizations contacted Enterpreneurs Sales.  On July 10, 2015 the owner, Lameeltra Wheeler, sent them an apology, stated that our order would be cancelled, and promised to send us a refund check.  NONE OF THIS HAS HAPPENED. I have called Entrepreneurs Sales almost every week since August and, if anyone picks up the phone, I am told that no one has the authority to issue a refund check except for Lameeltra Wheeler and that she is on the road with the sales team.  Clearly, she has no intention of ever refunding our money nor the countless other families who have been victimized by her scam.

HH Gregg rip-off! The manager practically called me a liar! Bad equipment! Cleveland Ohio
I purchased a personal DVD player at HH Gregg along with a three year extended warranty. The first time the machine had service due to it freezing up in the middle of a movie, it took approx. four weeks to get it back from the service department UNFIXED. It was then returned to the service department who finally fixed the problem two weeks later. The second time I had to send the machine for service because the pin inside the plug on the back of the machine broke off inside the AC adapter. I took the machine in to the HH Gregg store and off to service it went (I believe their service department is actually in Indiana). Two weeks later I contacted HH Gregg and much to my amazement the machine was ready for pick up. We arrive at the store only to find they NEVER FIXED IT. It was returned to the store because the service department said the damage was due to neglect and abuse because we were using the wrong AC adapter with the machine. The store then handed me the broken machine and a Compaq computer power cord. I explained to the manager that we did not bring the DVD player in with a Compaq cord, I do not own a Compaq computer, have never owned a Compaq computer and don't know anyone else who does. I explained to the man that I brought the correct power cord in when I dropped the machine off because we stood there and showed the woman who took the machine the broken piece still in the AC adapter cord!!! The manager practically called me a liar and tried to make me take the Compaq power cord (which probably belongs to some other customer's computer). We were treated terribly by this manager and they refused to fix the DVD player unless I paid for the repairs. I wasted $800.00 on a DVD player I can not watch and another $100.00 for an extended warranty. Be aware, should the service department decide they don't feel like fixing your product all they have to do is cry NEGLECT and you will be SOL. I will never purchase another product from this company NO MATTER WHAT and I will discourage everyone who crosses my path from purchasing anything from this company. (Name removed by ripoffreport.com) is going to see a lot of me, my friends, my family and anyone else I can encourge to purchase there. As for the DVD player, it's a good thing I work for an attorney!!!

I purchased Several appliances for my new home and with the sales rep set up delivery. He verified that everything was in stock and would be delivered on the set date. The morning that the apppliances were supposed to arrive I received a call stating that only some of the items were in stock the rest was on back order. This was at 8:00 am I told them not to deliver any thing untill they had my complete order the man said he would have his supervisor call me. Well still havent received a call. Waited until ten am to call the store and asked for my sales rep. The receptionist replied he wasnt there. Asked to speak with a manager. The receptionist said he was to busy to take my call. So I went up to the store and demanded that my money be refunded. Guess who was there my original sales rep who looked at me and walked away and the Sales manager wanted to know what was wrong. Knowing the scam of the bait and switch tatics these companies use I told him the time for talking was over and I would like my money refunded NOW! Because I am a single woman do these companies think that they can prey upon us thinking we are going to fall for their shabby and deceitful tatics. SHAME ON YOU!

H.H. Gregg High Pressure Warranty Sales, HDMI Cables Are a Ripoff Huntsville, Alabama
Went to the local HH Gregg yesterday to purchase a new TV and got a Blu Ray player (Samsung BDC6500) while I was there.  The TV was a pretty good deal (about $1039), it was a 40'' LCD (Sharp Aquos LC-40LE810UN).   The Blu Ray player from Samsung is total garbage.  It has all manner of network issues and is way overpriced for what it does.  I was reading some reviews on Amazon today and saw many others with the same problems who wasted alot of time trying to work the issues out unsuccessfully.  I bought this thing in order to provide the capability of playing disks; but mostly for the net access, so I could stream netflix and other such services over Wi-Fi.   I will be taking the Blu Ray player back at my next opportunity and opting instead for a PS3. I also bought an HDMI cable for around $95 dollars (Acoustic Research PR185.  I was looking around at other prices on the internet and saw the same exact cable for $50 dollars; that's definitely going back too.  They can sell that one to some other sucker; I should have known better than to trust their prices on accessories. I was grilled about 5 times on purchasing their service plans.  When the TV salesman heard me say that I didn't want the plan (which was 400 dollars for a 1000 dollar TV), I could see that he was frustrated when I indicated I wasn't interested; that tells you that they must have a big rake off of the service plans. If that wasn't enough, the manager got out this sheet of paper and explained what I was giving up for 15 or so minutes.  At one point I was being grilled by two salesmen and a manager about getting the stupid plan.   I certainly didn't figure there was a 40% chance of the TV failing within five years, so I went ahead and passed on that, for the 6th time. I realized that if they want me to get the service plans that bad, it must be a major ripoff.  Any time a salesman or manager is going to be bummed out that you don't get a service plan, you know they are making the real money there.  I'm guessing that the markup on accessories and service plans is how they are able to offer some of the TV's for so cheap. So a word of advice to future HH Gregg customers: have a good idea of what model you want before you go in and don't buy accessories on impulse.  I did well on the first part; but now I'm going to have to go back and deal with them again because I failed miserably on the second part.   Hopefully they don't give me too much trouble for not wanting to be ripped off.  I'll be polite and cordial and expect the same from them; nonetheless, I do expect to have pressure applied to me to keep the unwanted, overpriced, junk accessories.

A girl claiming to be a part of Entrepreneuers Across America and selling magazine subscriptions came to our door in October of 2005. We had just moved in 2 months prior! She was extremely nice and somehow convinced us to let her into our home. We proceeded to pick 2 magazines to purchase and to earn her double points we paid one with a check and the other with our credit card for an amount totalling $99! Needless to say, along with the rest of you, we have still NEVER seen a single issue of either magazine. I still have my reciepts from the transactions but according to company policy refunds are only given within 3 business days. I have not personally tried to contact anyone, but after reading about people in similar situations, have accepted the fact that I got taken that day. I still cannot believe we actually fell for this scam!! I hope the word gets out and this organization is shut down and they are forced to stop ripping off innocent, trusting people!!
