I told them I didn't want to purchase their service for $130. This is the email I got about an hour after the guy had called me.
The unfortunate course of action you have chosen, is going to guarantee that you lose your speeding case in court. The judge, prosecutor, and police officers, are all prepared professionals, who know exactly how to trip you up in court, and force you to lose your case. Your ONLY chance of winning, was by coming in with our information working for you. Now you can plan on losing in court, paying for your ticket, paying for traffic school if eligible, if not eligible having more points on your license, possibly having your license revoked, definitely having your insurance get MUCH more expensive...It is simply NOT smart to do what you are now planning on doing!
You have only 1 way to reverse this mistake...Fill out your invoice request form, send it back to us, and go to court properly prepared!
READ CAREFULLY FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!
1) SOLUTION: Plead guilty and lose tons of money
REASON IT'S A BAD IDEA: Re-read sentence above
2) SOLUTION: Plea bargain to a lesser charge (another state sponsored scam)... Pay a small fine now, and have a double fine and double insurance increase on your next ticket.
REASON IT'S A BAD IDEA: You're still paying a fine, still having some kind of guilty on your record. You're also paying a double fine, and double insurance increase on your next ticket, with no plea option.
3) SOLUTION: Defend yourself some other way, and lose in court, and then immediately lose tons of money.
REASON IT'S A BAD IDEA: The ONLY defenses that actually work in speeding trials are ones fully based in law, spoken in legal terms, and backed up with legal statutes. You have NO idea how to do ANY of that, and WON'T win on your own. UNLESS, we teach you! For the rest of why this is a terrible plan, re-read sentence above!
4) SOLUTION: Use the services of another speeding ticket website.
REASON IT'S A BAD IDEA: Other sites do not give you simple legal defenses that an average person can use in court. Instead they make you download info from their sites on how to beat a ticket that is usually 50-100 pages of reading. And it is reading that the average person would need a lawyers help to understand! From us you get a simple, easy to follow script, customized to your ticket.
5) SOLUTION: Go to Traffic school
REASON IT'S A BAD IDEA: When you take traffic school, you have admitted to the court that you are guilty. Your penalty is traffic school. You then don't get out of paying your ticket fine, and they DO tell your insurance you plead guilty. The insurance company waives the points and insurance increase 1 time. Then on your next offense (or anyone else's on the same insurance plan), they DOUBLE your insurance increase.
6) SOLUTION: Hire a Lawyer
REASON IT'S A BAD IDEA: A) Read our testimonials page, the testimonials written BY lawyers! They admit that they do not know how to beat speeding tickets, and no lawyer learns how in law school! B) All they do is plea bargain. That is not beating a ticket. The results are terrible. Read more about that in # 2 above. C) They will charge you a fortune. Normally well over $150 an hour, for a minimum of 8 hours! D) A SIGNIFICANT portion of OUR business is training lawyers on how to beat speeding tickets! They have NO idea how to do it!
NONE of those are good options, when you can EASILY beat your ticket, and save a fortune! Beating your ticket IS a time sensitive matter! You need to get to it right away to insure that you WIN!

Then I replied: Please do not harass me. If this continues you will be contacted through the FTC. I will not tolerate bullying from you, or any one else.
And then I got this...

Dear Sir or Madam:
RE: Your threat to contact the FTC and report this company for harassment:
In the future, before you make such threats and allegations, it would be advisable that you learn the law.
a) If an individual contacts a company as you did this one, that company has 6 months to follow up with that individual as many times as necessary. There is no basis for your claim of harassment.
b) It is quite well documented over this company's 5 (Five) year clean business history, that this company is doing legitimate business. Your "opinion" that this company is an illegitimate company, does not make it so. Furthermore, hundreds of current and satisfied customers, would strongly disagree with you.
c) Be advised that it is against U.S law to damage a company or individuals reputation in the community with a reckless disregard for the truth. It is also against U.S law to use a company's copyrighted name in published/written/broadcast content without permission to do so. Neither of those offenses are protected "free speech" under the 1st Amendment of the U.S Constitution.
Any harmful written content authored with your involvement appearing anywhere in print - will be considered malicious business interference, and defamation. Any broadcast content in any media, created with any involvement by you, will be considered the same. Any complaints made by you to any agency or organizations (including the FTC), that result in any limitation on our ability to conduct business, will also be considered legally actionable. Likewise, any activities/complaints/reports written or stated to any businesses we are regularly involved with in our commerce, will result in swift and strong legal action against you.
Should we become aware of you participating in any of the above activities, legal remedies will be pursued
immediately and forcefully.
You are also to refrain from authoring and/or broadcasting any partial reference to this company. Any you write will be presumed to have been designed to lead the general public to the conclusion that you are referring to this company. This means we will litigate against you if you write or broadcast even a portion of this company's name, at any time, anywhere.
All of your contact information will remain on file, should it become necessary to take legal action against you.
Should you violate this order, this company will also commence a civil action against the print/internet/or broadcast outlet you utilized to carry out your malicious interference and defamation. This department will also offer the print/internet/or broadcast outlet you utilized to damage this company the opportunity to enjoin our civil and/or criminal action against you.
Your letter today will serve as proof to any Judge in the United States of the malicious nature of your intent. Should it become necessary, we will obtain jurisdiction over you in any of the 50 U.S States in which you reside. If necessary, we will pursue a court order to collect sizable monetary damages from you. If you do not have sufficient assets to satisfy the monetary judgment we will be awarded, we will get a court order to garnish your future wages.
Consider this notice a "cease and desist" upon you, relating to all further contact, complaints, and activities you are considering undertaking. Failure to comply with this notice will bring you legal harm.
From this day forward, any further contact with this company must be made by your attorneys. Only the contact of your attorneys will be acceptable hence forth.
