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.

PMI StoresOnline ripoff Orem Utah
Two couples, both with disabled husbands, had been trying for two years to put together enough craft items to justify the high cost of traveling out of our rural area to some larger craft shows. When we received an invitation in our e-mail from SOL, we agreed to go listen to what they were offering in the hope of finding a better way of getting our crafts out of our little, remote valley. And since this is an Internet thing, we took along our 35 yr. old diabled son who understands computers better than the other four of us combined. We first attended the dinner(cold sandwich, apple, cookie, & soft drink)meeting in Wenatchee - a 3 hour drive from home. Next came the all day seminar in Yakima - a 6 hour drive from home. The presenter's enthusiasm made the whole deal sound like something we could do even as far from everywhere as we are. After all, the group of us had a computer and a phone line to connect to the Web. And this would save on the expenses of craft fair travel and fees. So both couples and our son bought a set of sites at $5200 each. Two of those sets have not been used because of the problems with the first site in the first set. Like Carla from Portland, Or., we received a call about two weeks after the seminar offering us the services of PMI Coaching. They promised 10 weeks of lessons by phone, 12,000 potential customers to visit our site, 1200 trading Links with our Link page hosted and maintained by Links For Trade, and 6 Banner ads. Well, we got the training sessions and the Link page maintaince. The Banners and the visitors have never appeared. The trading links turned out to be a listing on over 700 Free For All pages that we could have done for ourselves thru a service that would have cost only $49 while SOL charged us $500 per site. We did get over 1000 e-mails the day after our site was listed, but not one order in any of them. We have never gotten an order from anyone on our site. I spent about 800 hours building the site, contacting artisans, taking pictures of their crafts and pictures of our area, and purchasing the neccesary back-up for doing business on the Internet. The site was published on Sept. 9, 2002 and by Dec. 19, 2002 it had vanished from the Domain name I had purchased, was not listed on any Search Engine anywhere, had made no sales, and when found thru the SOL address was unusable. So it continues to this day. Not only have we been cheated out of about $22,000 (we paid for our son's set of sites, too), but the crafters in our small rural town so far from everywhere, have been robbed of their chance for an income. Most of the artisans that contracted with us to put their handcrafted items on our site are also disabled and on very limited incomes. Several of the people at the seminar who work for SOL are members-in-good-standing of the Morman church. I am somewhat surprised that people whose TV ads emphasize morality and family values would be involved in a company so obviously bent on deception and fraud. I have sent SOL an e-mail asking them to call me since their live chat is very slow and can only refer any problems to he Technical staff. Maybe they don't have time to check their e-mail because they are busy holding more seminars here in Eastern Washington. I will try their 877 number now that Steve from Illinois has supplied it. Thanks, Steve! And, Yes! I am ready to start of be part of a lawsuit. Nancy Oroville, WashingtonU.S.A.

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.

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.

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.

My husband and I got a card in the mail for their free Supper at a fancy hotel 60 miles away. We honostly went for the free meal! Some how there smooth talking technique lured us in. My husband told me to go to the all day seminar and find out what it was all about. Well $5300.00 later and a monthly payment for 2 years.... I now have 6 websites that were going to be so simple and easy, even for Me, the computer illiterate fool. I wanted 3 sites, but the salesman gave me some money earning hooplaa that I believed at the time, because he had 6 sites and he was doing so well and he got them all up and running within 6 months time- 1 site per month! Yeah Right! So I for some reason bought 6. I wasn't able to start working on the sites for a good month after I had purchased them, but seriously 2-3 days after I went into my first site to work on it, I got a call from a gentleman at PMI Coaching. They wanted me to join there mentoring program and wanted me to be one of there Success Story recipients that they talk about at the seminars, and when they have one in our area again, they would like to contact me and possibly have me speak about my success. The mentoring service would help me get my 1st site up and running within 30 days and the 5 other sites within 30 days each thereafter. I didn't want to spend $7000-10,000 on that. Instead I bought(?) into 1 mentor program to help me with my site,($4500.) thinking I could do the rest myself since this person was going to show me how to do the 1st one! Yah OK! I started the 30 minute, once a week, 10 week program on January 14, 2004. I got done with Bryant finally in late April, early May. My 10 week program turned into about 15-16 weeks. Well If I remember correctly, he went to California on vacation one week and while there came down with mono and was then gone for a few more weeks and couldn't make his weekly calls to his clients. We emailed back and forth, but he would not go any further on his training until we spoke on the phone, after a few weeks. Well needless to say I was finally able to submit my site in mid-May and waited for someone to contact me, because they tell you 10-20 days for the site to be up and running after you publish it. The programmer did e-mail me shortly after submission and told me he would start working on my site ASAP. After a month I made some expensive phone calls and having to hold for 10 minutes each time to speak to someone, I decided to do the Online Chat. The guy at SOL said that my site was up and running, but I could not get into it using my site # and password, or by entering in the URL that I had purchaed and submitted 2 months earlier! I couldn't find my site, it was under the storesonline.com/site/###### URL. Why was my site not listed under the URL that I had purchased? He said that was all up to me and the web hosting company, which I had purchased through SOL. I told him I would like for my programmer to contact me. He said he would take care of it. Almost 2 weeks later, still no word. I chatted with SOL a few times and they kept giving me the run-around. In late June, I chatted and was told they had a little mix up with my site, but would take care of it right away. July 19, still nothing. After several calls and complaints, I found out my programmer had been dismissed from the company and apparently he had misplaced some of his files/sites he was working on. August 25th they told me my site was programmed. YEAH! 3 months to get it programmed. Problem is- I still can't get into it through merchant services at StoresOnline. I was told upon completion of the programming I would be able to get into my site- well, Access is Denied! Everything that is said on all the other complaints is TRUE! This company needs to be put out of business! I will do what is needed to do that. There is more to my nightmare with Stores On Line. My one year expiration date is coming up in early December, and I only have 1 site (that has not gotten a single sale yet) and working on another. I want nothing more than to get my money back, at least some of it and to just be done with and rid SOL from my life. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out and tell me how or send me in the right direction to try and fight these scam artists. Trudi Wahpeton, North DakotaU.S.A.

I attended a workshop with a free buffetlunch but never was able to get to the beautiful buffet until it was cold and the next speaker had started because of the high pressured sales pitch. Storesonline Fair Financial was right there to give us instant credit, although my husband was out of work and we both have disabilities. We told them we were inexperienced web builders and they replied, Oh, don't worry about your first payment. You'll have a drop-shipper in a day, a web site in two weeks, and be making so much money in a month that you'll need three more sites. This is a one time offer and you'll have to pay much more if you decide to buy the sites later. I would buy all six now. They seemed so honest and knowledgable. I believed that they would give us what they said, until my site was up for over a year with only 3 sales and I found out through another source that there was too much picture and not enough text on my home page (which was setup exactly as their coaches had recomended.) Why didn't their programmer tell me that in the first place? He's the expert! The whole thing is a total scam! They've already been exposed for what they are. Why does the government allow them to keep ripping people off???? I did everything they told me to do...the marketing, the testing, the keywords and phrases. Nothing. No Money. They have ruined me financially. The Complete Store Building Packet was very incomplete and they share our info with their affiliates so they could take advantage of us, too. I have been ripped off for over $14,000 and am not making any further payments to them. Unfortunately, I should have stopped making payments a year ago. I realize they may ruin my credit rating, but they will pay! I Want My Money Back With Interest! I will not take no for an answer!

Nmr Coaching, PMI Coaching, Auctions For Income nmr coaching, pmi coaching, auctions for income ALL SCAMS Kearney Missouri
I wrote an earlier complaint but since have done a 'whois' search on godaddy.com and found different info: NMR Coaching as well as PMI coaching are both owned by Tom Collins from Missouri. In 2005, I bought Dave Espino's 'auctionsforincome' package for 39.00 from an informercial. Several times after I recieved it, a person saying they were from 'auctionsforincome' tried to contact me by telephone. Thier method via pushing a business opportunity through high pressure tactics. A man called and insisted that in order to get more information on the coaching, we needed to set up a time to speak with both my husband and myself. They let us believe we were being screened to see if we would be good candidates for a 'success story' IF we agreed with the coaching requirements. In the beginning, the coaching was mentioned in 'auctionsforincome' but failed to mention the additional cost for it. I was told they were working with Dave Espino and Auctions for Income to help those with this system become successful. The man asked us a few more questions and then asked us about our financial situation, if we had any outstanding debt, credit cards and things of that nature. He then asked us if we knew about good credit and bad credit and that investing is good credit. We were then told the cost of the program. Up until this point I thought that they just wanted to work with me, using just Dave Espino's system. They then put us on the phone with Scott Lundgren who confirmed that we were dedicated to making this work and then proceeded to tell us that the initial investment was around $5000.00. My husband and I have no where near that kind of money. The man then asked if we had a credit card. We told him we had received a paypal card but had not activated it yet and I had not planned to. I was first told that the cost was $5000.00.(which was the amount of credit on the card) We told him no and that we were not comfortable investing in something we were not informed about.He quoted another price for the program of approx.$3600.00. He promised an experienced coach as well as advertising to help attain our financial goals. He assured me that these were the total costs to get business off the ground and and if I could commit to at least 10 hours a week I could make this work as well as make back the investment in as little as 3-6 months.My husband and I had little time to discuss this in private so we agreed to the sale. At this point we were told that he was recording my conversation to perform the credit card authorization with another female representative from the company. I was told that we had a 3 day right of rescission; yet they set our date with our ?coach? for one week later, which prevented us from making an informed decision about the company. They taped our conversation. I was never sent a copy of this verbal contract for my records. Since my husband works 2 jobs and I am disabled, I was willing to put as many hours as it took to make this business work. We were told we would have weekly coaching for 6 months and additional if it was needed, up to a year. The coaching consisted of information that I found was free elsewhere on the internet and it lasted for 6 weeks. I was told I would be assisted by my coach to set up a business as well as a website. But when it came time to get a business tax ID and I asked for assistance, he told me to contact my local court house because, 'that's what we pay taxes for'. I set up my business and worked sometimes over 40 hrs a week trying to make this work. The connections to wholesalers that they promised were NOT sufficient. Most of the links given to me were either inadequate or required additional fees. Both my husband and I felt that we were scammed. I honestly put more time into trying to make this business work than I have ever put into anything, yet I have not made a penny. Since this happened, I have tried to find out more info on this company and all I find is more complaints from others on the internet. I sent a letter to Dave Espino's Auctions for income on 6/19/06 letting him know how dissatisfied we are and that if his company was legitemate, then first he should be advised how many times his name is being mentioned in all of the online complaints and second, if he is not affiliated with National Marketing Resources, I needed him to contact me immediately as to how this company got my contact information. I have not been contacted by anyone. I know we could have done things different in the beginning but that DOES NOT justify these scams. Please, if anyone knows if this company has broken federal laws, internet laws etc and if I have a legitimate reason for feeling like I was cheated by them. I know we are not the only people who have been ripped off by this company and feel that a class action lawsuit is needed to stop these people once and for all. .

PMI Coaching, don't fall for it! I had surgery on his neck, and am unable to return to my job permanently. I saw a commercial with Dave Espino, and Auctions for Income, and I ordered it. Shortly after PMI Coaching called,and my wife and Ithought it sounded like they could really be helpfull with starting our business. We are concerned about having income coming in. we gave PMI approx. $7,000.00 or more. We were sent things from my e-biz, and other things. we were even talked into spending more money on upgrading our virus, and anti spyware protection. We were also encouraged to order this world wide brands for dropshippers, and research. We also were told to get our business license, tax id, and accountant. our first coach got promoted, they assigned us another one, and we didn't here form him for weeks. We called PMI to ask about a refund, and they said it was too late. They then assigned us another coach. they said this one would be more aggressive. he was scheduled to call us on Mon. July the 10th 2,006 @ 3pm, and we have yet to hear fom him. We are very concerned, and we are about to lose our home. We were mislead by these people, and we don't have money to throw away. We are waiting from a call back from them, as I am writing. They put alot of pressure on you, and insist you won't fail. I feel we have done everyting we were supposed to do. we still have not gotten a clear response about our web site, wich I understood they were supposed to be building, and now they tell me different. All it is, is just spend more and more money. i am going to fight for a refund. Please don't fall for this! It's a scam Paul Waynesboro, VirginiaU.S.A.

In December, I purchased a coaching program from PMI Coaching for $5,000, using my credit card. Later that same night, I did some internet research and found this site and others regarding PMI's incompetence and fraud (I had tried to do some before the purchase, but they identified themselves as Professional Marketing International, which doesn't really turn up this stuff regarding PMI). The PMI sales rep had advised me of my three-day right of rescission, which I already knew about, so I called him the next morning and told him I was exercising this right. He acknowledged my call and told me he'd take care of it. My credit card had not been charged. I followed up this phone call with a fax that same day, and a certified letter they received the following day, both advising I was rescinding the purchase and revoking authorization to charge my card. I was supposed to have gotten my first call from my coach that night, but when I didn't get it, I assumed PMI was honoring the law. Two days later, my card still hadn't been charged. I checked my credit card balance again a week later and found PMI had charged the full purchase amount, *clearly* in violation of the law. Fortunately, my credit card company was aware of this situation and began the disputed charge process right away. In addition, a lawyer at the Utah Attorney General's Office Consumer Protection Division was very interested, because this was a clear case of PMI violating the law--the complaint and supporting documentation are in the mail even as I write this. PMI got my name from Auctions For Income. They represented themselves as working for AFI, and AFI acknowledges a partnership with PMI on their own website. I called AFI and spoke with Sherry, told her what PMI had done, and that I considered it a fraudulent practice. She agreed, and advised they would contact PMI to resolve it. To date, I've heard nothing from AFI--if they remain silent, my update here will be to inform people of their complicity with PMI. The PMI sales rep with whom I spoke both times identified himself as Dave Fountain. Interestingly, on a document I received from PMI, Dave Fountain suddenly morphs into Dave Fairbanks. I suspect the only true part of that is his first name. My advice? If you pick up the phone and hear PMI or Professional Marketing International, hang up. Hard. Ralph Boston, MassachusettsU.S.A.

StoresOnline, Inc., PMI Coaching, Galaxy Mall STOLE MY MONEY & RIPPED ME OFF W/FRAUDULENT INFO FROM THEIR CON ARTISTS AT THE SEMINAR!!! WANT THE BILLING TO STOP!!!! Orem Utah
During the seminar I was told all about the wonderful things that would come about with putting my lingerie & personal items on a website from my company. I had verification from a representative of Stores Online named Darrius who stated that I could use these items, I even showed him a cataolg. Come to find out that I have had nothing but problems after my agreement in purchasing 6 websites. I have been down for about two months, got locked out of my OWN pre-published site, have had items not download, my order information not figure correctly, my ECI merchant account denied and even CUSTOMER SERVICE SUPPORT not supporting anything I question!!! I have found myself in the position of having to look other places for WEBSITE HELP...which in my opinion is not what was explained at the seminar. I have contacted help@myquickresponse.com with NO QUICK RESPONSE AT ALL, sometimes not even an email acknowledging that my question was received. I felt that after bringing home the websites and working on them for so long it would get easier...WELL TURNS OUT I WAS WRONG!!! I WAS FRAUDULENTLY LED by the Stores Online Seminar and now would like out of my paperwork that I had signed. I AM NOT REQUESTING MONEY, all I am asking is that I return the unused products and my paperwork be TERMINATED with no further money being withdrawn from my checking account. I called Stores Online at the Corporate Office only to talk with a person by the name of Jeremy who had a cocky attitude about my request. I was told that my request was impossible and that I needed to follow the arbitration rules on the back of the paperwork which I asked how to file them. He stated that I would have to send information with valid reasons why and to send it to the coporate office. Jeremy in customer service stated that I would need to come to Utah, be present with an attorney and present my case. He stated that Stores Online would present their case & would win anyway. I stated that it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to leave my work, family and home to rush to some court hearing in Utah for a simple request. He stated that sorry I can't help you then. I requested to speak to a supervisor after explaining that I did not want money that I had spent out so far but only a cancellation of the paperwork and terms. Jeremy proceeded to state that he is the highest I will get in chain of command and I do not need to speak to anyone else. I requested to speak to another person who would be able to help with my request but he cut me off and stated that he is the only one who handles these types of issues. I left the phone conversation at the point that I would contact them anyway I knew how to have this whole mess reconciled but he just stated I could try but I would still have to go to court. I feel this SO-CALLED COMPANY is nothing more than a scam, ripoff, uncompliant, unorganized, irresponsible, ignorant and completely DISHONEST company. I am requesting that my paperwork be terminated and no further money be withdrawn from my account since I am not publishing my site with StoresOnline. I would only like to have this reconciled but Nooooooo Stores Online could not step up to the plate. I have already notified the Chamber of Commerce here in Myrtle Beach to alert them of these seminars, informed the BBB of SC of this businees' practice, and I have also written a letter to the local newspaper informing of this scam. I AM ONLY MAKING A SIMPLE REQUEST but I guess this company is not to into anything but SCAMMING people out of their money!!! STAY TUNED... Leanne Murrells Inlet, South CarolinaU.S.A.

PMI Coaching Real Estate Coaching Scam ripoff American Fork Utah
My experience with PMI Coaching began in Feb.2004, when I responded to a solicitation from British American, a reseller of financial products. When I called the 800 #,they always answered with Corporate Offices, never with a name. The original price for the coaching service was $8144. When I refused, they countered with a quick discount to just over $6000. What I received was 12 weeks of real estate coaching which turned out to be 12 phone calls lasting 30 minutes each, dispensing generic real estate knowledge which could be obtained from any bookstore. That works out to be about $1000. an hour for their advice. When my coach first contacted me they asked if I wanted the real estate or the internet coaching so it sounds like the same group that many others have reported. I would like to know if anyone has had success with legal action or if there is a class action in the works agaist these con artists. It would help us all if the silent majority would come forward and report their experiences with these people. John Newnan, GeorgiaU.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.
We were also ripped off by Galaxy Mall about 4 years ago. They delivered nothing they promised. They get you in the seminar and turn it into some kind of high pressure, cult-like experience. After we signed up for our 3 websites (thank heavens we didn't buy six!) they call and try to high pressure us into paying for a mentor when they said at the seminar that they would walk us through it for the price we had already paid. Then the guy who is trying to sell us on the mentor thing has the nerve to say that if we have to ask how much it costs we can't afford it! So I say, I guess we can't then cause there is no way in hell I'd agree to this without knowing the price. He hangs up on me! What a jerk. It's too bad that they convince everyone that a mall is the way to go...it's not. They make it very hard to get your web site up and running when it really doesn't need to be that hard. We have found on-line auctions...you know the one...to be a much more valuable selling site and it's a heck of a lot cheaper. We were stupid but we will never make that mistake again. And as you all know...they encourage you to go on bulletin boards and newsgroups and plug your site as if you are a satisfied customer. So the people that are saying they have had success with Galaxy Mall are indeed shills as someone said earlier and no doubt work for Galaxy. When we were eating the most expensive free lunch I have ever had at the seminar one of the Galaxy Mall used car salesmen sat with us. I related a story I had heard about a lady in Kansas that set up a website selling tumbleweeds just to show her kids how to do it. She ended up selling them to Japan and other places and made a lot of money. Well, the Galaxy Mall guy was totally enthralled with the story. Later, Galaxy Mall told my story and claimed that she was on a Galaxy Mall website! These people are beyond the pale. Good luck to everyone who has ever been taken by these jerks!

Everyone that you talk to will take your name and phone number and tell you that someone in the resolution department will call you back. This is not true. You will not here from them.

PMI Coaching Ripped Me Off Just As Laren In NY Said Ripoff Provo Utah
Lauren, I am another victim of PMI coaching (that was the name then) My deal went down just like yours. OPM (other peoples money) guarenteed success in thirty days or we will stick with you, never received the welcome packet, it miraculously costs just as much as I had on my credit cards although it initially cost most. They scholarshiped me to get me into the program. I received five coaching sessions which were mediocre and basically non helpful and spent hours doing all the legwork of trying to strat my own business. I was also contacted by idi builders, and strategic financial services who attempted to help with website and accounting. The two above organizations are still ripping me off and I cannot get ahold of them to stop. (Well Strategic financial is doing my taxes but are close to a month late) I will gladly join in a class action suit with Lauren to get my $3000 plus dollars back. Paul Silver Spring, MarylandU.S.A.

StoresOnline PMI Coaching Links4Trade consumer fraud ripoff false promises the business that doesnt give a dam Orem Utah
My original report of June 30th has now had so many updates I thought it wiser to file a whole new report for ease in reading. I do, however, urge anyone reading this report to check out my 6/30 report and all the various updates for a clear picture of what has transpired. The problem with our website's totally blank links page that started on July 3rd (following 4 days when Links4Trade's server was down) wasn't rectified until July 15th! It took twelve days -TWELVE DAYS - for these incompetent fools to correct a predicament of their own making. We, the paying subscriber, had to endure a completely blank page, then a page with only a fraction of our Links Partners shown, followed by a page that ended with only half of a Partner's description, and then a daily surprise: would our Links Page be correct, would all of our partners be listed, would ANY of our partners be listed? Throughout this ordeal, our page footer remained fouled up. I had to contact Links4Trade on a daily basis - a toll call from Florida to Utah - and finally gave them 24 hours to correct the problem or I would have no recourse but to take punitive action. In the meantime Links Partners were sending me angry e-mails demanding to know why I removed their links from our links page and threatening to remove our link from their links page. I told each and every one the problem rested solely and exclusively with SOL and Links4. After SOL and Links4 finally stopped blaming each other for the snafu (what on earth did these two supposedly professional companies do for TWELVE days?)the page footer reverted to the proper format, as my husband had originally programmed it, and all our partners were listed. BUT, what began as an alphabetical listing deteriorated: all new link partners were simply thrown in at random, no order, no alphabetizing. It looks inefficient, childish and downright ugly. And here's another little tidbit: SOL/PMI/Links4 markets their Link Trading program as being the latest in technology and those of us who were idiotic enough to buy into it were promised we would have a total of 400 link partners, which, we were told,is essential for Search Engine indexing. Again, as innocents, we believed and trusted them. However, while it is true websites do need to have some links, most SE's consider sites with an overabundance of partners (400 would qualify as an overabundance, don't you think?) to be spamming and will not, absolutely will not, be indexed!! Isn't it amazing how we've been programmed for failure? How grand it will be when we finally extricate ourselves from their clutches. Now, here's the biggie: PMI did send us the promised refund paperwork which we promptly turned over to our attorney. Our attorney has assured us the document is legally binding and if our money isn't promptly refunded, PMI will be in default and will be subject to collection attempts. Of primary importance, though, is a specific time frame/date for when the funds will be received. PMI didn't indicate when we can expect the refund, which they must do. Here, too, our lawyer stated if PMI refuses to establish a quick time frame they will be subject to further action. I will be contacting PMI this afternoon to inform them of this and will update this report with their response. Our attorney also said any and all victims of this fraudulent scam should file reports with any and all avenues open to them. In addition to the Rip-off Report contact your state's Attorney General,your states's Dept. of Consumer Services, notify your local TV stations Our attorney also said to be sure to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. It has been so gratifying to hear from many of our fellow victims. and would be very happy to share everything I've learned. Let's all hang tough! Together we can - and WILL - make a difference. Enough of us have already suffered; let's make sure there aren't any more decent people hoodwinked by these shameful frauds. Pamela Sanford, FloridaU.S.A.

I too am a victim of Internet Treasure Chest and PMI Coaching. They made false claims of instant success and in the 9 months of doing business with them I have made one sale. That did not even begin to cover the expenses I incur each month for the web site and merchant fees to name a few. I only want to disassociate myself from them, count my losses and lick my wounds. It would be nice to get a refund if that were possible. All I wanted to do was to earn enough money to be able to have my own business, with the expenses I have from ITC that is not possible. The coaching that was offered was a joke. My coach was often times very vague and the information I received from him was usually homework and more ways to send in more money.

Storesonline & PMI Coaching ripoff Orem Lindon Utah
I am one of the fools who got sucked in initially by Storesonline, and eventually PMI Coaching. My partner and I purchased 6 e-com websites at an all day high pressure seminar which was held at a large hotel in Richmond, BC. Canada. This was in March, 2004. We didn't do anything right away. Then we where solicted by PMI. They where very persistant and eventually we signed up with them at a cost of $9,000. This fee was on top of the over $6,000 that we were indebted to Storesonline. To this date we only have one website up on the internet. All the work to get this site up and running was done by myself. So much for the high priced practically non existant mentoring from PMI. As of the present, the website has only generated one sale. Storesonline screwed up with the credit processing. They had me linked with WorldPay, which I wasn't. I was paying a monthly payment to a company in Montreal, consequently no one could buy from the site. Today I searched PMI on google intially looking for their website; you can guess what I was directed to - all the complaints about both Storesonline & PMI. I estimate I am down about $18,000. I would welcome the chance to participate in class action against these companies. Roy Surrey, British ColumbiaCanada
