This company, Saving Lives Across America, doing business as Torica LLC, according to the website, and the WHOIS for the website, is the latest con company for Donald Lapre, who has a long history of fraudulent practices under many business names including:

The Greatest Vitamin in the World
24 Hour Cash Flow
Tiny Little AdS
Universal Business Strategies
Traffic Designs
Guaranteed Traffic
Vision One Designs/VSNI,
The Lapre Children's Trust,
Torica LLC
Infinity 2,
Optimal Health Services

His latest scam is a television informerical and a website television infomerical that claims when you sign up new directors of the whole food supplement company, you get "$50 Up Front" for each director you sign up, and each director your director's sign up.

When I sign up two directors, they notified me, but no commmission was listed on the admin page of my website.

When I tried to contact them, they avoided me until the 60 day refund period had passed. When I pointed out to them I had a contract, and the documents they sent me said I would be paid $50 for every director I signed up, up front, they quoted the main page of my website to me, that is a promo for new directors, which had changed since I sign up.

That did NOT change the fact that the contract said IF they made any changes to the terms of service, I would be notifed on my ADMIN PAGE, only seen by me, not the public.

The ADMIN page terms did change twice. The first time from being paid monthly to every two weeks. The next time payment changed from every two weeks to once a week. There was NEVER any mention of me getting paid different, as I quote the response I finally got.

"Regarding the two Directors who have signed up on your website, you make your money when they sell 20 bottles of therapeutics. They are tagged to you for life and, in addition, you make $5 for every bottle that they sell.This information is on the front page of your website.

Donald Lapre has numerous warnings from the U.S FDA, has been fined millions, and has filed bankruptcy twice. His once partner Doug Grant was arrested for the murder of his wife. This is unsavory company and should be avoided.

My loss - $66.99

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Clinton, since there is no evidence of what you're saying anywhere...

AUTHOR: Ben - (U.S.A.)

Clinton, everyone who has responded to these RipOffReports on Don Lapre stating they received checks has never verified this! And those who have been disheartened by Don Lapre's scams, therefor, do not believe that for a minute.

So, could you please do the RipOffReport community a favor?

If you are indeed an IA in favor of Don't company and making success, (and not another Don Lapre shilling), could you please scan a copy of your checks you say you received, (after marking out the check numbers), and post them here? I'm sure everyone who has been taken would like to see some proof of this, which MIGHT mollify their skepticism and perhaps would do justice for Lapre.

#2 Consumer Comment

read carefully

AUTHOR: Sean - (U.S.A.)

first off I just want to share something,, As I work 2nd shift I get home roughly around 1:30am and the first thing I do is check on my babies and let my wife know Im home.

then I get boil a cup of tea and watch tv to wind down. Anyhow as we all know late at night they got a million commercials that they do not show during the day... ahh I wonder why....
so now this commercal has been on tv for sometime and they say for 7 minutes we can tell you that you will not change your mind. So, I decided what the hell..I dial up my relay number and called the number listed on the tv screen. and again they say the number changes every now and then.. thats a "bad sign " When I said I dialed up my " relay nbr" thats my way of communication, I am a deaf male and the relay opr relays everything said and types it on the screen for me to read. As they explained everything Im reading along and quickly I catch a few " red flags".. this shall cost $ 795 but for a one time fee $ 35.00 I was like ok,, so when the opr came on to say how will you process this,, I simply asked 1 question to be sure, suddenly the live person disapeared and then a recorded voice said " i am a repeated caller and I will be prosicuted to the full extent of the law.. blah blah blah,,
for a mere 35 bucks i was about to give it a try but got hung up... from there i decided to check out google and see if its all a scam,, What did I learn..??
Research first. before getting into anything.
I learned years ago from family and friends.
" if it sounds too good to be be true it probably isnt" if so,, then why isnt everyone else doing it..
Basic common sense..
thanks for listening/reading..

#3 UPDATE Employee

I was skeptical Too!

AUTHOR: Clinton - (U.S.A.)

I came to this site last year when I had just signed to be an affiliate of the greatest vitamin and I was very disheartened at what I read because I really wanted a homebased business that worked. I have since been with the program about four months now and I can truly say I have not been ripped off I have received payment for my efforts ( I have the checks to prove it just leave me your email and I will send copies to you) That being said I have to honor my word, I told my family if they didn't pay that I would write a letter agreeing with the people on this site but if they did pay it would only be fair fo me to state that fact also. I do not know Mr Lapre or anyone from his staff and I have not received payment for this endorsement so please just understand the facts I am being paid for every affiliate that signs up under me and it is not $50.00 but $100.00 for each one and I receive $500.00 everytime they sell their 20 vitamins. I am happy with this organization. Thank you for equal time.
